BUTTERFREE Stats: 60/45/50/80/80/70 Over the past 4 generations, Butterfree has been a Laughingstock in competitive battling. With horrible stats, a terrible movepool, and being completely outclassed by Bug Types such as Venomoth, Pinsir, and even Vespiqueen. When Stealth Rock was introduced, it seemed that Butterfree would never see use again. So what propelled butterfree to being usable, good, even getting a RU analysis? There are two reasons for this. The first is that the Dream World granted Butterfree Tinted Lens, giving it an almost unresisted Bug Buzz. THe second was Quiver Dance. If you have been battling at all over the last year or so, you know exactly what Quiver Dance can do for a Pokemon. With the second-best boosting move in the game under it's wings, people looked at Butterfree in a new light. Still having Sleep Powder, Roost, and Substitute with it, Butterfree gained the ability to wreck unprepared teams. Butterfree @ Leftovers Ability: Tinted Lens EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe, Timid Nature Moves: Sleep Powder Bug Buzz Quiver Dance Roost/Substitute/Giga Drain This set is simple: Either come in on something that you force to switch out, such as Sawk's Choiced Close Combat, and set up a Quiver Dance, or put something to sleep. THanks to TInted Lens, Butterfree's Bug Buzz is nearly undesisted. The least slot can be used for free setup, or healing. Overall, the original butterfly can pose a huge threat to teams. So what do you think of Butterfree? Let me know by replying, and thanks for reading!
