lileeeeeeeeeeeeeeep~ Lileep [Overview] -Lileep goes into Gen 5 mostly unchanged. -Lileep loves the new Evolution Stone item. -Always use it in sand for the extra Special Defense boost. -Encore being limited to 3 turns is really good for Lileep. [Set] Name: Sand Sweeper move 1: Curse move 2: Recover move 3: Rock Slide move 4: Protect item: Evolution Stone ability: Suction Cups nature: Relaxed evs: 228 HP / 140 Def / 140 SpD [Set Comments] -Evolution Stone was practically made for Lileep. -After one Curse in Sand you are operating with massive 37/37 defenses. -Protect is to scout for Trick users or status moves. [Additional Comments] -Seed Bomb can be used over Rock Slide, but Lileep generally prefers the extra PP Rock Slide has and would rather hit Scyther and Yanma than Omanyte -Rest and Sleep Talk can be used over Recover and Protect but Lileep would rather be statused than holding a Choice Scarf [Team Options] -Lileep absolutely NEEDS Hippopotas to set up Sandstorm -Lileep enjoys being partnered with Pokemon who already have Choice items, or can don't particularly mind them, such as Gligar or Scyther. -Teammates immune to Poison, such as Bronzor or other Steels. -Wynaut can trap scarf users and kill them with Counter or Mirror Coat, but this is more of a convenience than anything. -Lileep is slaughtered by most Critical Hits as they ignore boosts. [Optional Changes] -Lileep can use Stealth Rock on a lead set, however it isn't as effective as the Curse set since it would lack Sandstorm being up from turn 1. [Counters] -Lileep is deadly afraid of Trick users taking it's Evolution Stone and replacing it with a Choice Scarf. -Lileep takes a bit to set up defensively, so Machop can come in and hit it hard with Dynamicpunch, which can also disrupt your setup with confusion. [Dream World] -Storm Drain might have use absorbing water attacks if Lileep were faster or wasn't afraid of ice moves without the bulk it normally has.
