    Sawsbuck is a personal favorite of the new gen 5 mons, one which I have been able to use, despite mediocre stats, to great effect with the correct teammates.

    Singles Sets

    Sawsbuck@Life orb
    4hp/252Atk/252Spe
    Adamant/Jolly
    Sap Sipper
    - Return/Double-Edge
    - Horn Leech
    - Nature Power/Jump Kick
    - Megahorn



    This is a set I have found to work incredibly well on rain teams as it has great synergy with water types.
    • Sawsbuck is capable of switching in on both of waters' weaknesses, with an immunity to grass.
    • Has the potential to sweep after activating Sap Sipper
    • Return is a reliable STAB, but double-edge can be used for more power
    • Horn Leech hits rocks that resist its other STAB, as well as killing bulky waters that can give rain teams trouble
    • Nature Power is Earthquake in the GBU, hitting steel types as well as allowing sawsbuck to hit electrics it switches into and fires that threaten it super effectively.
    • Jump kick also kills steels but lets it hit TTar and ballooned steels better
    • Megahorn is there so that Grasses will be killed immediately so you can move on to the next pokemon with as much hp as possible.
    • Adamant is prefered because it gives much needed power while jolly only allows it to out speed a very few notable pokemon.
    Sawsbuck@Life orb
    136hp/252Atk/4SpD/116Spe
    Adamant
    Chlorophyll
    - Return/Double-Edge
    - Horn Leech
    - Nature Power/Jump Kick
    - Swords Dance

    • As long as Sawsbuck is in the sun, you will have no problem attcking first. With these evs it out speeds scarfed base 105's
    • Return is a reliable base 102 STAB, while double-edge can be used for more power
    • Sawsbuck reaches a nice 656 Atk after a swords dance allowing it to sweep through teams
    • Horn Leech hits grounds, rocks, and waters that can give sun teams trouble for super effective damage
    Finally after 2 years of being on smogon I do my first anylasis type thing.
