One more RMT for the road. For those not aware of what the Lapras Corollary is: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3466903 Konohana Sakuya (Salamence) (F) @ Choice Band Trait: Intimidate EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Hidden Power [Flying] - Earthquake - Fire Blast - Rock Slide Jiraya (Heracross) (M) @ Choice Band Trait: Guts EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Megahorn - Focus Punch - Rock Slide - Sleep Talk / Brick Break Take-Mikazuchi (Metagross) @ Leftovers Trait: Clear Body EVs: 204 HP / 144 Atk / 160 SAtk Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd) - Meteor Mash - Pursuit - Hidden Power [Fire] - Explosion These first three are my core focus, with CB Hera at the helm. The idea is to eliminate Gengar so Heracross can better predict Skarm and Focus Punch. This possibly rouses two questions: Why not just use Magneton so you can Megahorn everything and not give a fuck? Two reasons, actually. First off, using Magneton implies that Skarmory gets at least one layer of Spikes out. Since it's an unsaid taboo to use both Magneton and a Spinner on the same team, I opted for a team structure that would allow me to eliminate Gengar as opposed to destroying Skarmory (these cause the biggest obstacles in CB Hera's success, IMO) and be able to use a Spinner. The second reason is because I have little reason to use Magneton outside of supporting Heracross (Salamence is debatable, considering how I play) and for that, it just didn't fit. Why use Metagross as a Pursuiter? Gengar has been holding on to Giga Drain a lot more recently, whenever I decide to use a Pursuit Tyranitar. There's also Houndoom, but it contributes little else to the team, as is. The extra resilience to Gengar's attacks is highly appreciated for what I lose in Pursuit damage. Because I'm a damn hipster. I like this core overall, as Salamence/Heracross creates some lovely offensive pressure, and Metagross supports it, getting rid of Forretress who can still mess with Heracross, Exploding on bulky waters to help Salamence, and of course the already mention Pursuit support to help Hera/Cloyster's Rapid Spin. Kintoki-Douji (Cloyster) (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Shell Armor EVs: 252 HP / 80 SAtk / 176 SDef Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd) - Spikes - Surf - Rapid Spin - Explosion Tomoe (Regice) @ Leftovers Trait: Clear Body EVs: 252 HP / 96 Def / 140 SAtk / 20 Spd Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk) - Ice Beam - Rest - Thunder - Psych Up Sukuna-Hikona (Celebi) @ Leftovers Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 240 HP / 148 Def / 120 SDef Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk) - Leech Seed - Heal Bell - Recover - Psychic The rest of the guys are doing obvious jobs. Cloyster Spins and Spikes, Regice is walling, Celebi is healing and is the odd man out of the Lapras Corollary.. After a few revisions, Regice just remained there for potential Lapras Corollary status. I wanted to switch Celebi out for something else, but Regice can't handle repeated bashings from Zapdos alone (at least, not when I play it). The team gets opened up pretty easily by a well placed Metagross. I originally had Reflect Starmie for that purpose, so that hole was created from the decision to replace it with Cloyster. Surf at least helps a little bit, though, right? I was going to flesh this out a bit more on my own and make the post a bit more decorative, but I'm a bit unenthused. Have at it.
