Slowking Slowking is hands down the best Pokemon in RU and I doubt anything will top it for a long time. It's typing is insanely good and the only really bad stat is its Speed, which isn't much of an issue for it. This allows it to wall and therefore check so many dangerous Pokemon in RU. I'm pretty sure everyone knows what makes Slowking so good by now (just see the standard sets on its analysis if you don't). Without Slowking, so many Pokemon would have an easier time wreaking havoc, such as Entei, Emboar, Gallade, Hitmonlee, and BlizzSpammers. It is very important for keeping them in check. Slowking can also switch into defensive Pokemon and force them out, as they can't touch Slowking, such as Poliwrath, Cryogonal, and Qwilfish. I've been taking advantage of this recently by using a Choice Specs Slowking set. Slowking (M) @ Choice Specs Trait: Regenerator EVs: 212 HP / 252 SAtk / 44 Spd Modest Nature - Surf - Psyshock - Flamethrower - Trick I've been using Pokemon that are weak to the defensive threats I mentioned above, like Escavalier, so that Slowking gets a free switch in and can then deal massive unexpected damage with a Choice Specs boosted move. That's why I like this version of Slowking so much. For example, Surf 2HKOes CB Escavalier and catches a bunch of other threats off guard. Despite not investing in the defenses, Slowking is still bulky enough to check many threats and still has a way to recover through Regenerator. For example, unlike defensive Slowking, this set OHKOes Moltres with Surf, which could catch it by surprise. I'm using Psyshock in order to check Gallade (it OHKOes after Stealth Rock) and Flamethrower to predict Grass-type switch-ins such as Sceptile. Trick also comes in handy, especially against stall teams. Trick will usually cripple an important stall Pokemon such as Spiritomb or even opposing Slowking (and annoying Cosmic Power Sigilyph on the ladder), giving my team a slight but important advantage. You can even play around with the moveset by using Psychic over Psyshock if you don't have trouble with Gallade, swapping out Trick or Flamethrower for Grass Knot, whatever. I used paralysis support from Uxie or Amoonguss (which is a cool 'Regen core') to help Slowking outspeed some threats like Druddigon and Feraligatr. Overall Slowking is the best overall Pokemon in RU in my opinion and can be versatile. The Choice Specs set is really good and I urge you guys to try it out once in a while over the defensive set!
