Hi! As you can tell by the title, I am hosting the "Pokemon of the Week" for OU. You may have seen the UU, RU and NU varaints of this project. The aim of this project is to help newer OU players recognize viable Pokemon and sets, in order to aid them when team building. This is done by exploring and discussing a new OU Pokemon each week. If you are unsure what to discuss, here are some good guidelines; The Pokemon's place in the metagame Some viable sets of the Pokemon. Creative sets are highly encouraged, but no gimmicks please. Share your experiences with the Pokemon The first Pokemon of the week is...... Breloom Type: Grass / Fighting Base Stats: 60 HP / 130 Atk / 80 Def / 60 SpA / 60 SpD / 70 Spe Abilities: Effect Spore / Poison Heal / Technician Notable Moves: - Spore - Mach Punch - Bullet Seed - Swords Dance - Low Sweep - Stone Edge - Substitute - Focus Punch - Leech Seed - Drain Punch - Bulk Up Even before BW2, Breloom was a good offensive Pokemon, and arguably one of the most annoying Pokemon in OU history. The combination of his great typing, massive attack, and access to the epic Spore is the reason why players used him. With BW2 giving it Technician, Breloom is even deadlier, with players now having to deal with Choice Band and Swords Dance sets.
