Uxie


Status: Testing sets || working on skeleton

Overview:

  • 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

[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
