    Status: Testing sets || working on skeleton

    • Not many changes in 5th generation
    • Base 95 Speed is relatively fast for a defenvie oriented Pokemon
    • Good typing and ability
    • Being weak to Pursuit and U-Turn is minor problem due to its high defense
    • Great support movepool
    • Not more than medicore offensive stats making it a minor choice for a sweeper
    • Rivalry with Cresselia. Additional support moves vs. 'reliable' recovery move

    name: TrickScarf
    move 1: Trick
    move 2: Stealth Rock
    move 3: U-Turn
    move 4: Psychic / Thunder Wave
    item: Choice Scarf
    nature: Impish
    EVs: 252 HP / 104 Def / 152 Spe

    • Works well as a lead but also mid-game
    • Trick to cripple potent walls, shuts down set up sweepers
    • U-Turn for field advantage, great synergy with Trick
    • Psychic for STAB, offers decent damage output when needed
    • Thunder Wave for team support, best use after Trick
    • Without Scarf still faster than neutral Base 82 (incl. Adamant 252 Spe EV Gyarados)
    • Spe EVs meant to outspeed anything up to base 130's with Choice Scarf
    • Like all Psychic types, it lures in Pursuit users and many Steel types, including Ferrothorn and Excadrill
    • Fire-types like Heatran are best paired with it
    • Counters Conkeldurr easily

    name: Support
    move 1: Stealth Rock
    move 2: U-Turn
    move 3: Psychic / Heal Bell
    move 4: Thunder Wave / Yawn / Heal Bell
    item: Leftovers
    nature: Impish
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD

    • Sets up Stealth Rock easily while being able to take most opposing hits
    • U-Turn for scouting opponents switch-ins and puts you in a better position
    • Psychic again your main STAB move to deal some damage
    • Thunder Wave to stop set up sweepers
    • Yawn to force switches, with new sleep mechanics quite hard to counter
    • Heal Bell to heal team mates from any unwelcome status problems
    • Makes a good healing partner with Wish Vaporeon
    • ..

    name: DualScreener
    move 1: Reflect
    move 2: Lightscreen
    move 3: U-Turn
    move 4: Psychic / Stealth Rock
    item: Light Clay
    nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 HP / 40 Def / 216 Spe

    • Access to good speed and great natural bulk makes it an excellent dual screener
    • U-Turn to pseudo pass the screens
    • Last slot generally best to use Psychic
    • If your team still lacks SR support, feel free to use it
    • ..
    • Allows strong but frail sweepers to be more efficient
    • ..

    name: Trick Room
    move 1: Trick Room
    move 2: Yawn
    move 3: U-Turn
    move 4: Psychic
    item: Leftovers
    nature: Relaxed
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD

    • Has easy time to set up Trick Room
    • Yawn to force switches and gives the turn needed to set up
    • U-Turn to pass to a team mate to abuse Trick Room
    • Psychic for STAB and all those fighting types
    • ..
    • Powerful slow Pokemon are obviously best to pair up with this set:
    • Physical: Metagross, Conkeldurr, Druddigon, Tyranitar, Machamp, Rhyperior, Gorlurk, Escavalier
    • Special: Musharna, Slowbro, Magnezone, Porygon2
    • ..

    name: Calm Mind
    move 1: Calm Mind
    move 2: Psychic / Psycho Shock
    move 3: Thunderbolt / Giga Drain
    move 4: Hidden Power Fire
    item: Leftovers
    nature: Bold
    EVs: 252 HP / ??

    • *still working on that set*
    • ..

    move 1:
    move 2:
    move 3:

    This hasn't seen a single edit in nearly a month. Closing under inactivity and moving to L&O. I'll be letting someone else claim this analysis.
