Why this little bugger is not #1 in usage is absolutely beyond me. It can singlehandedly win game after game, with virtually no skill required. Being the only (viable) pokemon able to pass quiver dance, it provides every special attacker, of which there are a plethora of, with the boosts that will have them plowing through teams in a heartbeat. Venomoth @ Focus Sash Trait: Tinted Lens EVs: 4 HP / 252 Spd / 252 SAtk Timid Nature - Baton Pass - Quiver Dance - Bug Buzz - Sleep Powder This right here is the only set that you will need to wreak havoc. Completely unprepared for and extremely easy to pull off, there is almost nothing that can prevent you from doing your job. Sleep Powder on turn 1, Quiver Dance once or twice, and then pass to any special sweeper. It is simple, it is dangerous, it is effective. Example Team: What better to showcase Venomoth's ease of use and outstanding capabilities than an example team? Venomoth @ Focus Sash Trait: Tinted Lens EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Baton Pass - Quiver Dance - Bug Buzz - Sleep Powder Meloetta @ Expert Belt Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature - Psyshock - Shadow Ball - Focus Blast - Psychic Raikou @ Life Orb Trait: Pressure EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Rash Nature - Aura Sphere - Hidden Power [Ice] - Calm Mind - Thunderbolt Nidoking (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Sheer Force EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature - Earth Power - Fire Blast - Ice Beam - Thunderbolt Shaymin @ Life Orb Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Seed Flare - Earth Power - Psychic - Hidden Power [Ice] Gorebyss @ White Herb Trait: Swift Swim EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Shell Smash - Hydro Pump - Ice Beam - Baton Pass Basically, set up with venomoth and then pass to whichever sweeper will either have the easiest time or will be able to take the post-pass attack the best. If a crobat is waiting to brave bird, send out raikou. If a mismagious is going to shadow ball, send out meloetta. When in doubt, send out nidoking, as it is by far the most potent of the lot and can 1hko nearly the entirety of the meta. Gorebyss serves as a back up passer, as well as a poke to absorb strong fire attacks (think darmanitan) Why hasn't venomoth received the recognition it deserves? Will this change?
