Why? And i repeat the question, WHY? Doesn't anyone use Articuno? Articuno @ Leftovers -Pressure -EVs 162 HP / 252 SpDef / 96 Spe -Calm nature -Roost -Heal Bell -Toxic -Ice Beam Role: Special wall What it does: Walls the living $h!t outta special sweepers (excluding fire and electric types) and even stalls out other NU walls such as Amoongus and Alomomola. Now I'm sure you're all wondering..."Yo GS WTF is up with the EVs in Speed?", well i'll tell ya sucka, it's to outrun those punks with a base speed of 55 such as Ampharos, If they've fully invested into Speed. Otherwise you could just run the standard 252HP / 252SpDef spread. But I don't take those chances, this beauty is bulky enough to sacrifice a lil HP for some Speed IMO. Good teammates: Rapidash! What could be better than pairing two beautiful pokemon together? Plus the synergy is great. Rapidash has Flash Fire thus canceling out any fire type attacks heading Articuno's way and giving itself a boost. Lampent also fills this role well. As for the Electric weakness, Torterra and Zebstrika both fit that role easily. I prefer Zebstrika because of its Lightningrod ability, but I know alot of fellow NU players love them some Torterra. What counters it: Heh, well just about any fire or electric type sweeper, but we try not to let Cuno die that easily, after all, thats what its teammates are for.
