Status: Waiting for QC approval [SET] name: OU Bulky Lead move 1: Stealth Rock move 2: Rapid Spin move 3: Fire Blast / Lava Plume move 4: Explosion / Yawn item: Leftovers nature: Relaxed / Bold EVs: 252 HP, 44 Defense, 212 Sp. Def Why this set deserves to be on-site: Torkoal has enormous bulk with 70/140/70 Defenses. His Sp. Def is not very high, but with resistance to the most common special Types in the lead position (Fire, Grass, Ice) he takes them exceptionally well. With 85 offenses in both Attack and Sp. Atk and Fire-Type STAB, he can deal damage himself with ease. Explosion, Stealth Rock and Rapid Spin; something Skarmory can't do. He may look outclassed by Forretress at first sight, but with his key resistance to Fire (instead of a 4x weakness) he has some use over Forretress. Additional Comments: Stealth Rock is an obvious move for a bulky lead. Rapid Spin allows you to spin away the entry hazards of the opposing lead. He has a lot of viable options for his Fire-Type move: Fire Blast is the main option, but you can use Flamethrower for accuracy. Lava Plume for burn rate or Overheat for immediate damage. However, use Overheat only if you go for Overheat + Explosion. Explosion vs Yawn is a hard choice. Explosion is an awesome move with high damage output, but Yawn helps a lot against some problematic lead, as seen in Post #3 Will-o-Wisp and Earth Power are other options for the last slot. Will-o-Wisp gives you helpful status against Physical Pokes, while Earth Power 2HKO's Heatran and Infernape. The EVs are fine-tuned; they allow him to be almost never 2HKO'd. All damage calculations are seen in Post #2.
