[pimg]540[/pimg] Thumbs up for Simisage? I know this Pokemon sucks generally, but there has been one set that I have used pretty effectively lately. This is my first indicidual set thing so if the format is wrong, I apologize. One more reject and this is gone though. [SET] name: All-Out Attacker move 1: Leaf Storm move 2: Focus Blast move 3: Hidden Power Rock / Hidden Power Ice move 4: Giga Drain item: Life Orb ability: Gluttony nature: Timid evs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe Why this deserves to be on-site It has a decent 98 base Special Attack and a good 101 base speed, making it a good option this kind of set. Its like Sceptile except a little weaker and a little slower, but Sceptile isn't in the tier so this isn't that big of a deal. Leaf Storm hits really hard immediately - it also catches people off guard that expect a Nasty Plot set (which is what comes to mind when they think of a Simisage) Second fastest user of Leaf Storm in the tier, but unlike Serperior it acutally hits hard. It is also a lot faster than the Pokemon in the tier that have Leaf Storm that hit harder than it. Leaf Storm hits about as hard as a +2 Energy Ball/Giga Drain, but it requires no set-up. Focus Blast allows it to hit the few Steel-types in the tier that resist the move. Only Grass-type in the tier that can defeat Steel-types in this fashion, aside from Cacturne who is much slower. Pokemon like Probopass, Klang, and Bastiodon, who usually take Grass moves like a boss get hurt really badly. Hidden Power Rock hits Fire-types really hard. Charizard is outsped by the mohawk monkey and gets OHKOed, for example. Amoonguss is relavent enough to use Hidden Power Ice, even though it doesn't do much to it admittedly. Speically Bulky Altaria and other Grass-types also dislike it. Giga Drain is much weaker than Leaf Storm, but it allows Simisage to use a STAB move and heal itself from Life Orb damage. EVs for maximum offensive force. Timid to outspeed all those annoying base 100 Pokemon like Charizard. Life Orb is also good thanks to Giga Drain healing off damage and its good coverage Additional comments Crappy movepool - literally no other Special Attacks other than Grass Knot, but it gets all it needs. Hidden Power Fire could be useful, but Steel- and Grass- types dislike its other coverage moves a lot more. Teammates & Counters GET RID OF AMOONGUSS ABOVE ALL Fire-types like Emboar and Charizard, Sap Sippers like Miltank, Psychic types like Gardevior, etc. Hypno is awesome because its a Psychic type that is immune to sleep. Entry hazards are useful since usually the opponent will send their Grass-resistant Pokemon out. Garbodor can set up Spikes, and Pokemon such as Probopass can set up Stealth Rock. Like I just said, Amoonguss counters it. Not even Hidden Power Ice does much to it. Emboar isn't weak to Hidden Power Rock and easily OHKOs it. Skuntank actually takes a fair amount from a Leaf Storm, but it can Pursuit it out, or if it stays in, hit it hard with a Sucker Punch. Ninjask 4x resists Grass moves, outpseeds Simisage, and OHKOs it. Be careful of HP Rock on the switch. Priority moves in general., especially Ice Shard and Sucker Punch.
