Hi, Blindspot here. My fiance and I just recently started playing the competitive side of Pokemon, and I am currently seeking help with my team. I'm brand new to baton pass teams, and would appreciate any help I can get. I decided to make the team without a sweeper. Just added one attack on each pokemon. I think it works a lot better. Team preview: Ninjask @ Leftovers Trait: Speed Boost EVs: 248 HP / 224 Def / 36 Spd Impish Nature - Baton Pass - Protect - Substitute - X-Scissor I prefer Ninjask for the speed boost. He seems like a safer option.At least this bulky set is. Basically switching between sub and protect until I pass the speed for my team to get started. Celebi @ Leftovers Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 252 HP / 224 SDef / 32 Spd Calm Nature - Calm Mind - Baton Pass - Giga Drain - Hidden Power [Fire] I personally love Celebi on this team. Can heal with Giga drain, and can take care of other Celebi's, which used to be a major problem for me. Which is why I put HP fire on her. Espeon @ Leftovers Trait: Magic Bounce EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef Bold Nature - Baton Pass - Calm Mind - Stored Power - Substitute To go along with Celebi, I put in Espeon for another CM user. Magic bounce is a must, so that I don't get roared/whirlwinded away. On a baton pass team, stored power is so powerful ^_^ Vaporeon @ Leftovers Trait: Water Absorb EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef Bold Nature - Scald - Wish - Baton Pass - Acid Armor Vaporeon is very useful to me. Sets up my team's defense boost, and has wish to keep the team alive. Only thing that worries me is the lack of sub on my team. So I have to watch out for dragon tail. Mr. Mime @ Leftovers Trait: Soundproof EVs: 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 Def Calm Nature - Baton Pass - Encore - Psychic - Barrier Another defense booster. Works well with Mr.Mine, considering his high sp.def stat. However, Mr.Mime is needed for much more. He is needed to protect my team against perish song. Without him, my team could be defeated in just 3 moves. (At least the chain, which is very upsetting) Encore is nice to have, to trap a pokemon in a boosting move, then baton pass to Zapdos to roar them away. Zapdos @ Leftovers Trait: Pressure EVs: 248 HP / 236 Def / 24 Spd Bold Nature - Thunderbolt - Baton Pass - Roar - Substitute Zapdos (which was just recently added) is very much needed for this team, simply because of roar. This is only the second pokemon on my team with substitute on it. Which worries me a little, but I'm not sure if it matters TOO much. Is 2 enough? So, if you have any advice for my team, please let me know. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from someone soon.
