Reverse Metagame is a world of trickery. The pokes you love could now suddenly betray you, becoming weak, unusable creatures, and making you weep bitterly as you lose in battle. Rules: 1. Every pokemon's stats are reversed. What this means is that HP and Speed are swapped with each other, Attack and Special Defense are swapped, and Special Attack and Defense are swapped. 2. Uber pokemon are allowed in play. 3. Pokemon with the same base stat across the board (i.e Arceus, Mew, etc.) are all BANNED. 4. Items are changed accordingly. e.g Choice Band now gives a 1.5x boost to Special Defense, which is the equivalent of Attack in this metagame. Abilities are also changed like this. e.g Huge Power gives a 2x boost to Special Defense, the equivalent of Attack in this metagame. Also, for ease of reading, when reffering to EVs and natures, please try to keep it the same. So, if you want a pokemon to be bulkier, don't give it 252 Speed EVs, give it 252 HP EVs. This is just to prevent the player from killing a penguin in confusion when team building. So, what pokes will be common and effective in this metagame? Pokemon with high defenses and health are now going to be vicious sweepers. Pokes with high offensive stats and Speed are now sturdy walls. Here's a few examples: Deoxys-Attack @ Light Clay Evs: 252 HP/126 SpD/126 Def. Nature: Impish. - Light Screen - Reflect - Toxic - Protect Deoxys-Attack would change astronomically in this metagame, as he turns from a glass-cannon attacker into an extremely bulky wall, boasting 150/180/180 defenses. He could easily set up dual screens and toxic stall enemies, crippling their set-up attempts. Azumarill @ Choice Band EVs: 252 Attack/252 Speed/4 HP Nature: Adamant Trait: Huge Power - Waterfall - Superpower - Return - Aqua Jet Azumarill in this metagame turns from a docile creature with a very nice Attack stat into a rampaging blue rabbit of destruction with a jaw-dropping 852 Attack which is compounded by 404 Speed, allowing you to outspeed and kill things with ferocious power. The moveset is quite self-explanatory, as it gives coverage and power allowing you to be a gigantic threat. Giratina @ Life Orb EVs: 252 Spe/252 SpA/4 HP Nature: Timid Trait: Pressure - Calm Mind - Dragon Pulse - Aura Sphere - Shadow Ball Probably one of the best CM sweepers ever. With the equivalent of 120 base Special Attack and 150 base Speed, Giratina, a very sturdy wall in the standard metagame, can now be used to murder all the things in the Reverse Metagame. With perfect coverage and the EVs above, you can destroy enemy teams easily. Have fun!
