    So far I have been using this set up:

    Teddiursa (M) @ Toxic Orb
    Trait: Quick Feet
    EVs: 36 HP / 196 Atk / 36 Def / 196 Spe / 36 SDef
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Facade
    - Crunch / Fire Punch
    - Earthquake
    - Protect

    It seems to work pretty well. Quick feet allows Teddi to reach 21 speed, and Facade does a ton of damage with the Toxic Orb. He protects against the fake-out leads, uses Fire punch if Snover is a problem, and Earthquakes on annoying steels like Aron. Is there another more effective anti-lead I'm missing, or is this the best way? Obviously he doesn't last very long, but he's faster than Taillow and more often than not puts me at a 6-5 advantage.

    Should be posted in here. Teddy does seem like an intresting anti-lead though. I'd use Facade/Close Combat/Crunch, as CC has the coverage of EQ as well as OHKOing Snover. You are kinda screwed over by Scarf leads, but those are rather rare.

    Also getting screwed over by focus sash I suppose, althought raw power can make up for this.

    I'd actually rather use this as a midgame mon or even lategame sweeper. I'll try it out.

    Yeah, it could be an impressive late-game sweeper. It has a lot less power than Taillow, though. I'd like to see calcs.

    This thread isn't going to generate very much discussion. As iss pointed out, post new sets that you come up with in the appropriate thread.
