    Probably not.

    Also I've been trying fun sets with fun teams. I've been thinking about a Sun team using Heat Rock and a bulky setter.

    Here's my set:

    Skiploom @ Eviolite
    Trait: Leaf Guard
    Nature: Impish
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 Spe
    Moveset:
    -Substitute
    -Rest/Synthesis
    -Leech Seed
    -Cotton Guard

    It's kinda simple switch in to wall something Sub up Cotton Guard, become unbreakable with Leech Seed + Synthesis/Rest.

    It looks like it could be a decent tier. No weather, hopefull some variety, no Raichi.

    Heya, dropping in cause of me being a big-time competitor in MC, and although due to a loss am lol'd at, I'm willing to give a spiel about MC.

    FIRST OFF, I've been compiling the main standards of the tier. Right now I have two set in stone and tested, if you guys care:

    Golbat
    Ability: Inner Focus
    Item: Eviolite
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 248 HP, 12 Atk, 248 Spd
    -Brave Bird
    -Taunt
    -Roost
    -Toxic

    Standard Lead Golbat. Golbat is boss with this set. Trust me on it; everyone back at Serebii runs this, and we lol at other leads.

    Monferno
    Ability: Blaze/Iron Fist
    Item: Choice Scarf
    Nature:Adamant
    EVs: 12 HP,248 Atk, 248 Spd
    -Flare Blitz/Fire Punch
    -U-Turn
    -Close Combat
    -Thunderpunch, lol Iron Fist incompatible.

    Doubt this set? Uturn on stuff like duosion, krokorok, even Kadabra. That typically OHKOs or gets close to. CC and FB are high-powered STABs for awesome, and Thunderpunch is mainly for hitting Wartortle. honestly, you just have to see it to believe it.

    ALSO, EVs work like "4= one Stat IF first EV +1 Stat, then 8= one stat EV"

    Ask me other stuff, I've got around 50 MC battles under my belt as of now.

    Not quite. Too many things laugh at its horrible defenses and still lame offenses. Chansey, ground types, etc.

    As well as the fact that Pikachu has worse stats all around than Electabuzz, even with Light Ball. I guess it still might be funny though. lol.

    Pikachu isn't Deoxys-A. Deoxys-A outspeeds the entire non-scarf'd tier with 150 Speed. Pikachu has 90 Speed, so its easy bait for stuff like Electabuzz.

    That said, Pikachu has an immunity to switch on, so its possible to run Scarf Pikachu lol, making it somewhat unique... but Pikachu loses like most of its appeal from not running Light Ball.

    Lol, the immunity is the only thing going for it. Specs would be better, too, because 50 is lol, and it's not like yer gonna do a lot with it, and you won' outspeed anything you wouldn' win against. Magmar beats it, Ebuzz beats it, 'ferno beats it, heck, Wartortle probably beats it. It's just a hilarity. Lol.

    Pikachu is worthless without Light Ball. Its only way of beating Scarf Gabite (whom everyone should carry) is Agility on the switch and Hidden Power Ice (or just Hidden Power Ice on the switch if you're a master predictor). Magneton giggles at Pikachu, setting up Substitute and Charge Beaming away (it's not very hard to beat Pikachu even with resisted hits). Pikachu doesn't even get Focus Blast as a coverage move. Seriously, Pikachu is pure hype and can easily be worked around.

    lol, we know chu is worthless. of course, so is Gabite: Look at Magmar, Zweilous or Magneton to see the top threats, and all three have a variant which can OHKO Gabite. Gabite is really worthless, and lol Magneton shouldn't use Charge Beam. ResTalk Discharge/Tbolt and Flash Cannon/ HP Fight is annoying as heck.

    BTW, I saw something about an MC group you run? mind posting a link? I wanna know what goes on there. larger group of people=better sets. lol.
