I decided to try I team I have never done before, a Smash Pass team! I thought it would be fun because, if done correctly, it can lead to a 6-0 sweep. I'm not an expert at this, so I would appreciate some advice. Here is my team. Deoxys-Defense @ Light Clay Trait: Pressure EVs: 128 SDef / 252 HP / 128 Def Calm Nature - Reflect - Light Screen - Recover - Night Shade Deoxys-D provide DS support, which is really useful for Gorebyss, as it can set up a Substitute with a less chance of breaking, and sucessfully Smash Pass. It also temporarily increases my team's bulk in general. Night Shade is to cause some damage to my opponent when necessary, and Recover is for healing, needless to say. The plan is usually to set up DS, then switch to Gorebyss. The EVs are to maximize Deoxys-D's overall bulk. Gorebyss @ White Herb Trait: Swift Swim EVs: 232 Spd / 252 HP / 24 SDef Calm Nature - Shell Smash - Substitute - Baton Pass - Scald Gorebyss is the most important Pokemon on the team. The plan is to Shell Smash, ignoring the defense drops with White Herb, then set up a Substitute and Baton Pass. Scald is to get rid of any Fire, Rock or Ground type that gets in Gorebyss' way. Alakazam @ Focus Sash Trait: Magic Guard EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP Timid Nature - Psychic - Focus Blast - Shadow Ball - Energy Ball The standard Alakazam set, well, kind of. Psychic, Focus Blast and Shadow Ball are the usual moves. Energy Ball is for super effective coverage, which may be useful. Focus Sash is the best item for Alakazam in my opinion, because it is so frail, and may prevent Scizor's revenge kill with Bullet Punch, etc. Kyurem-Black @ Lum Berry Trait: Teravolt EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SAtk Lonely Nature - Fusion Bolt - Outrage - Roost - Ice Beam Kyurem-B is the Pokemon that will usually receive the Smash Pass. I used to have Moxie Salamence, but I decided to give Kyurem-B a try, due to its colossal Attack. Outrage is the key move here as it can OHKO most Pokemon and possibly 2HKO Steel types. Ice Beam is its other STAB, although not very strong, and Fusion Bolt is for coverage. I don't know what other offensive move to put, so I put Roost. The Lum Berry is for healing Confusion from Outrage, so I can use it twice before forcing myself out. Scizor @ Life Orb Trait: Technician EVs: 252 Atk / 248 HP / 8 Spd Adamant Nature - Swords Dance - Bug Bite - Bullet Punch - Superpower This is Scizor. I personally perfer Swords Dance over Choice Band, because I don't want to be locked into a move. Swords Dance is for boosting when there is an opportunity, and compensating for the attack loss from Superpower. Bullet Punch and Bug Bite are its STABs, and Superpower is for coverage. Keldeo @ Life Orb Trait: Justified EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef Timid Nature - Calm Mind - Hydro Pump - Secret Sword - Hidden Power [Ice] Keldeo is just another special sweeper, a good one, actually. This is the standard set (I think). Its Secret Sword can plow through Blissey, etc. HP Ice destroys 4x weak Dragon and Ground type Pokemon, and Hydro Pump is the power Water STAB. Threats to my team: -Choice Band Scizor: Can revenge kill Kyurem-B with Bullet Punch. -Any user of Taunt, Perish Song, or Roar / Whirlwind See my team in action: http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/oucurrent4621760 vs. Baton Pass Team http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/oucurrent4622272 vs. UU Team http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/oucurrent4666492 Questions: Should Kyurem-B have a Speed boosting nature instead? What can Kyurem-B use over Roost? Should Espeon do the role of DS over Deoxys-D? Please give me some advice on different moves, Pokemon, items, strategy, etc!
