Additional support moves vs. 'reliable' recovery move [SET] 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 [SET COMMENTS] 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) [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] 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 [SET] 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 [SET COMMENTS] 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 [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] Heal Bell to heal team mates from any unwelcome status problems Makes a good healing partner with Wish Vaporeon .. [SET] 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 [SET COMMENTS] 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 ..

[SET] 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 [SET COMMENTS] 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 ..
