Starmie I got dat superstar swagger. [SET] name: Defensive Rapid Spin move 1: Scald move 2: Psychic / Ice Beam move 3: Rapid Spin move 4: Recover item: Leftovers nature: Timid evs: 252 HP / 20 Def / 12 SpA / 224 Spe [SET COMMENTS] Unlike offensive varients of Starmie, this set can utilized Scald to weaken common checks such as Ferrothorn. The HP investment allows Starmie to switch in to many Stealth Rock'rs more easily such as Heatran and Donphan, and it allows it to switch-in to Terrakion more safely. Recover allows Starmie to spin repeatedly and is a valuable asset most spinners cannot boast. With this it can PP Stall Blissey. Thunderbolt allows you to hit weakened Jellicent along with the Tornado-Bro's and is the ideal coverage move. Thunder Wave surprises many sweepers trying to set-up on this defensively-inclined starfish (Salamence, Dragonite, Terrakion in Sand) Plays a lot differently due to the bulk and Recover. [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] EV's allow it to outspeed Base 111 Pokemon (Tornadus), never be OHKO'd by Band Terrakion's Stone Edge, and to always OHKO Gengar after Stealth Rock with Psychic. Ice Beam can be used insteaad of Thunderbolt if you want to hit Dragons. Scizor can U-Turn and Pursuit and unless you get luck w/ Scald, Starmie is dead meat, so a Scizor counter is wanted as a teammate (Magnezone, Skarmory..) Can't spin on Jellicent, but then again, standard Starmie can't spin either since many are running Special Defense EV's. Band/Scarf Tar is nice for this. Spins so reliable Dragonite and Volcarona are good teammates. Toxic can be used to stall out Jellicent Pro set is prooo.
