Why do I not have Levitate? [SET] name: Stealth Rock move 1: Stealth Rock move 2: Explosion move 3: Taunt move 4: Zen Headbutt / Magic Coat item: Normal Gem ability: Synchronize nature: Jolly evs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Why this deserves to be on-site: An effective lead in Hyper Offensive Teams not wanting to waste a team slot on a ghost-type Pokemon. Beats pretty much every other lead with Taunt and Magic Coat, even opposing Magic Coat Deoxys-D's lose since you outspeed them after a Magic Coat war if that ever occurs. Advantage over Azelf in ability to have enough bulk to run a Normal Gem, making for a stronger Explosion netting more KO's, like almost always OHKO'ing Xatu. If Azelf lacks Focus Sash it is always OHKO'd by Genesect. Additional Comments: EV's are standard-- allow for maximum attack for your Explosion and for Genesect to always get an Attack boost since a +1 U-Turn never KO's unless Banded or Expert Belted (which you outspeed and get up Rocks), while a +1 Bug Buzz always OHKO's. Stealth Rock is for a Lead, obviously, as this can be a great lead for HO teams. Taunt prevents things from setting up on you, and you can Taunt opposing leads if you outspeed them. Magic Coat allows you to win versus faster leads, like Terrakion, Infernape, Aerodactyl, and Azelf and as they Taunt you can reflect it giving you momentum. If you feel as though Gengar or Fighting Types attempting to set up will be troublesome, Zen Headbutt can be used. Explosion gives Mew a self-spinblock as spinners slower than Mew will not hit Mew as it Explodes, meaning it cannot Rapid Spin the Stealth Rock. Many times you can severely damage a Pokemon or earn a kill and set-up Stealth Rock as well. If Magic Bounce is on the opposing team, or the opponent leads with Starmie, it is standard etiquette to Explode turn 1 or save Mew and lead with something else. Life Orb can be used with Zen Headbutt if you want more power with that STAB. Teammates & Counters All teammates who like Stealth Rock support are welcome. Scizor is an exemplary partner as it can check Gengar setting up a Sub versus Mew. Landorus, Dragonite, all sweepers that wants Stealth Rock to earn certain KO's, etc. are great partners. Counters are strong hitters that can OHKO Mew turn 1 and outspeed it, namely Specs Latios and Life Orb Gengar.
