Infernape @ Focus Sash Trait: Blaze Nature: Naive EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Sp Atk / 252 Spe -Fake Out -Stealth Rock -Close Combat -Overheat This set's purpose is NOT to go on a wall breaking sweep like most Infernapes are expected to do. This set is simply a suicide lead that can probably bring you a KO or two or put a big chunk of damage into Politoed/Ninetails. Fake Out is used to break sashes that some leads have, even if they aren't using entry hazards. Stealth rock is then used, probably along with some entry hazards of the opponent as well. It should be noted full investment in speed allows Infernape to outspeed all but 8 Pokemon in OU should they also be running full investment in speed and speed ties with Terrakion and Keldeo bar Choice Scarf. The set can reliably place rocks faster than anything else, and you can see who the opposing person's lead will most likely be, which can allow confirmation if Infernape can outspeed or not. That being said, it also should let the player know if it is a sun or rain team- this Infernape should not come out on a Politoed or Ninetails. He only can 2HKO them with CC (3HKO if you throw in Fake Out) which will render his attacking ability useless and leave you at a disadvantage off the start. He should be brought in once either of them have reached about 50% health or have fainted and their entry hazard placer has been brought in. Blaze allows for a boost in power if the Focus sash is activated to Overheat which will leave a bigger chunk in Deoxys-D. This set can also scare away Scizor, Ferrothorn, and Forretress to later points in the game, which makes Magnezone an ideal parter as he can trap all of them and set up through Charge Beam on Forry and Ferro or OHKO with HP Fire on Scizor. This allows a Dragon Type to sweep easier, which is always nice. His indirect influence is as good as his ability to place rocks and annoy people with fake out.
