http://www.smogon.com/gs/pokemon/slowking Updates: Calm mind is very good can no longer surely wall moltres with hazards because of hurricane :( Specs is best set trick>grass knot on specs psyshock>HP grass on nasty plot [SET] name: Choice specs move 1: Surf move 2: Psyshock move 3: Fire Blast move 4: Trick item: Choice Specs ability: Regenarator nature: Modest evs: 248 HP / 252 SAtk / 8 Spe [SET COMMENTS] - Slowking's best set and very powerful - Better than bulky because slowking is often 2HKOed with moltres hurricane without hazards - Even with no SpD or Def investment slowking is very bulky and plays like a tank - Regenarator makes slowking an exceptional tank, because it is not worn down as much by entry hazards - Surf is strong STAB and so is psyshock. Fire blast roasts tangrowth ferroseed, and others. Trick is used over grass knot HP grass because they sucked - Flamethrower is still strong enough to hit most grass types for OHKO without specs - EVs allow for maximum bulk and power [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] - 248 Hp to switch into stealth rock more - Pokemons that can take less than 50% from specs slowking attacks Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Slowking Zweilous Alomomola Shelgon Regigigas Hypno Mandibuzz Druddigon Grumpig Gardevoir Munchlax Togetic Lickilicky Cradily Lapras Regice Miltank Ludicolo Lanturn Audino Yeah pretty strong dude. pokes in RU in bold. Pokes in NU in smnaller font [SET] name: Defensive move 1: Scald move 2: Psyshock/Fire Blast move 3: Slack off move 4: Toxic/Calm Mind/Thunder Wave item: Leftovers ability: Regenerator nature: Calm evs: 248 HP / 144 Def / 116 SpD [SET COMMENTS] - Standard defensive slowking, very good - Can wall lots of threats because of amazing defensive typing (resistance to fire fight and water) - Not as good as it was because moltres can 2HKO - Even super effective STAB moves will often fail to KO slowking - Scald is standard STAB defensive for water types - Psyshock is other STAB and is used over psychic for pokemon like gallade - Slack off recovers health - Toxic cripples annoying walls - Calm mind allows slowking to sweep as many peoples switch ins are special attackers - Thunder wave slows down faster threats - Fire blast could be used for tangrwoth, escavalier, and ferroseed [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] - 248 HP for stealth rock - Slowking gets dragon tail which could work for phazing - Slowking has lots of other moves as well - Tangrowtrh utterly walls this set although it hates being burned or poisoned [SET] name: Nasty Plot move 1: Nasty Plot move 2: Surf move 3: Psyshock/Trick Room move 4: Fire Blast/Trick Room item: Leftovers ability: Regenerator nature: Modest evs: 248 HP / 252 SAtk / 8 SpD [SET COMMENTS] - Slowking has access to nasty plot - With a meh special attack stat after two special attack boosts it is dangerous - Nasty plot boosts slowkings special attack (really?) - Surf hits targets as slowkings best water STAB (no hydro pump) - Psyshock hits water types that would otherwise wall this set - Fire blast hits tangrwoth, ferroseed, and, escavalier - Trick room could be used because slowking is a slow sh*t [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] - Leftovers give recovery Life orb could be used but slowking has amazing bulk and resistances and not taking advantage of them is silly. It could work with trick room but again the resistances are too good - 248 for stealth rock - Speed lowering nature should be used with trick room - Could use slack off (should I slash this last on moves 3 and 4?) - HP grass or grass knot could work but their main target is opposing slowking -should NastyRoom and normal nasty plot be combined? Idk. [Other Options] psychic, curse, ice beam, light screen, shadow ball, amnesia, iron defense, psych up, focus blast, dragon tail, magic coat, rain dance Trick room + 3 attacks Different EVs expert belt defensive trick room [Checks and Counters] difficult because of versatility, almost impossible to wall opposing slowking when locked into a move, almost anything CB spiritomb Easily revenge killed by bug types and electivire Not easy to revenge kill when using CM Tangrowth if it lacks fire blast (or isnt locked into it) Grass types lanturn altaria shelgon Ready for QC???
