    this is a set ive been fooling around with lately. i think its pretty good and deserves a spot online, but obv thats up for you cool QC kids to decide!


    [​IMG]

    [SET]
    name: Dual screens
    move 1: Reflect
    move 2: Light Screen
    move 3: Giga Drain / Close Combat
    move 4: Taunt
    item: Light Clay
    nature: Timid / Jolly
    evs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe


    Why this set deserves to be on-site:
    • thanks to its solid physical bulk and excellent special bulk, virizion can act as a great dual screen user
    • it isnt weak to pursuit like other users such as latias, allowing it to set up screens on a wider range of threats
    • giga drain allows it to check rain sweepers while replenishing health. this allows it to come back in later and set up screens multiple times during a match. however, close combat can be used instead to smack pokemon like tyranitar. virizion's attacking move is mostly filler anyway, so it doesn't matter too much.
    • taunt allows it to not be setup bait for pokemon such as ferrothorn
    • thanks to its typing and stat distrubition, virizion fits in on all kinds of teams, making it a great supporter that can pretty much be slapped onto almost any team and still be effective
    • can deal with the rotom-w and scizor offensive cores that are oh-so-popular quite effectively
    Additional Comments:
    • taunt is so that virizion can set up dual screens against more defensive pokemon without having to worry about them setting up on you. also blocks pesky status moves that could ruin virizion's fun
    • due to the fact that virizion is naturally more specially bulky than physically bulky, 224 Def evs and a bold nature are used to give great physical bulk
    • 252 HP evs give virizion good overall bulk, while max Speed evs allow virizion to outpace the most amount of threats possible, as well as have access to a very speedy taunt
    • since virizion's physical defense is lower than special defense, you should usually start off with reflect, unless youre facing a special attacker
    • if you wish to be able to take hits better, particularly physical ones, then a bulkier 252 HP / 224 Def / 32 Spe spread may be for you. this allows you to take physical hits much better while still outspeeding max speed adamant dragonite, allowing you to taunt it before it can set up
    • the set also has surprise factor, as almost every opponent you face will be expecting a calm mind variant, and will be caught off guard when you set up screens
    Teammates and Counters:
    • this virizion doesnt need much team support, as it is a support pokemon itself
    • pokemon who benefit from having buffered defenses make excellent teammates. setup sweepers such as dragon dance dragonite and calm mind latias appreciate dual screens support as is makes setting up and pulling off a sweep much easier
    • all pokemon appreciate dual screens support, so this virizion variant can be thrown onto almost any team in need of a defensive boost
    • pokemon that can sponge virizion's weaknesses are also good teammates. due to its grass typing, virizion can do wonders in a fire-water-grass defensive core, particularly on a bulky offense team
    • bulky water types are especially good teammates as they can take on heatran, who walls this virizion set handily and can deal massive damage with its STAB fire-type attacks. vaporeon is especially great as it can pass wishes to virizion, greatly replenishing its health and allowing it to set up screens many times during a match more reliably
    • taunt users shut down virizion handily
    • the aforementioned heatran, along with every other fire-type, walls virizion splendidly and can deal massive damage to it with STAB attacks
    • anything with a flying-type attack will hurt virizion badly, especially acrobatics gliscor
    • tornadus is especially threatening since it outspeeds virizion and can smash it with a 4x effective hurricane

    I've tried this set before, but I wasn't really too successful with it. I didn't find it effective since it kind of gets destroyed by the Rotom/Scizor offensive core. Then again, you probably had more success with this set than I.

    8 Spe EV's let you beat Modest Tran and set up Light Screen first
    32 Spe EV's let you beat all 252 neutral 80's
    88 lets you beat all Smeargle
    Just food for thought..

    Creative set - I'd specify Tornadus as one of its main threats, since it can beat Virizion to the punch with its 111 Speed, preventing Virizion to set up Screens.

    i know what you mean, it does have a tough time with scizor (though not rotom in the slightest lol...), but the idea is to pack a teammate who can deal with scizor, specifically fire-types. although really, scizor isn't even too problematic, as you can outspeed it and set up a reflect to cushion the inevitable u-turn.

    thanks a bunch, ive made a mention of all those alternate spreads in additional comments

    done it, thanks~

    Oh, i realize that it has no problems with Rotom, but im just talking about that core in general. Do you have any logs for this set? I would really love to see this set being used effectively.

    I don't know about this set. It seems to me like it's outclassed by Espeon, who is faster especially with the spread you have given, while also reflecting hazards and not being able to be Taunted. They would play almost exactly the same, although with Virizion having more of a surprise factor. I could be wrong and this could be a great set, but I'm just not seeing it.

    The only thing Dual Screens are good for nowadays are SmashPass or Hyper Offense, although they're both suffering due to Deoxys's banning. It seems that there would always be a better alternative, such as Espeon for aforementioned reasons, Deoxys-D for greater bulk, or Azelf for more offensive momentum.

    Suppose the clincher of this is Virizion's typing, which synergizes better with other Psychic type dual screeners like the aforementioned ones. It's one of the only dual screeners to resist CB Tyranitar's STAB attacks for instance, which gives it a pretty good niche. As such, Close Combat might be worth a slash over Giga Drain since Virizion's main role as a dual screener is to support its Psychic typed counterpart by demolishing Dark types. With a Justified boost it'll hit pretty hard even without investment.

    One can argue, however, that Virizion's stereotype as an offensive anti-metagame threat does this set good. While Tyranitar, Ferrothorn, and Gastrodon run for their dear lives, Virizion has basically earned its team free defense boosts. You can't say the same for something niche like Serperior.

    The premise so far looks good, but Snorlaxe, get better opponents :P

    hahahaha believe me i know, everyone i played was a flaming retard (mainly due to the fact that my rating on that alt is pretty shitty so i attracted shitty opponents xD)

    and also, this set is much better than serperior because of both virizions typing, and the fact that every player expects virizion to be running a calm mind set. the surprise factor that comes with this set is one of its most important attributes. for example, many players switch scizor in on virizion, expecting to get a free u-turn and deal some good damage. however, theyre always surprised when they find that their adamant choice band scizor's u-turn deals less than 25% damage after virizion sets up a reflect. speaking of scizor, this set can also perfectly deal with the rotom-w and scizor offensive core that is currently the most popular duo in the OU metagame. this set has a lot going for it, so if you doubt its effectiveness, i urge you to give it a try.

    Nice set, it's something I'll have to try out sometime!
    One thing I noticed, is that Virizion possesses an excellent speed, and it would be crazy not to take full advantage of it. Timid Nature and 228 spe should at least be an option for always outspeeding base 105s. Taunt/Giga Drain are replaceable, methinks, such as Sacred Sword, Hidden Powers of sorts, even combine it with set-up moves so that Virizion is capable of easier stat-boosters behind its dual screens. If your opponent pahazes you, you've still got Dual Screens to hide behind! Just pointing out.

    I agree with the above poster!Virizion doesn't really need max def. Behind Reflect it takes physical hits like a champ anyway. But being able to outspeed threats like Salamence,Hydreigon,Infernape,Mienshao etc. before they can kill you or setup on you is invaluable so speed should be enough to outspeed base 105s imo...

    With dual screen and a set up move Virizion lacks the coverage and its attack stats are so low, that it won't do real damage without investment.
    Also I think max defense is important to handle the Scizor-Rotom-core and to get maxium profit from reflect.

    Virizion should already be behind screens when one of these switches in. When they come in you taunt them or switch directly to a better counter/check, who will have an easy time checking these threats with screens up.

    Fazit: max defense is the best option

    i agree with hoipolloi that max defense is the best choice. however, ive made a mention of max speed in AC as i do see the merit in it.

    can i get some QC members to weigh in on this set?

    He should be but it can't always be,that's the point.
    Do you know why Deoxys-S was the best screener and why he was running max speed?
    Because speed does matter for a DS supporter.
    It means that you will able to setup screens in front of almost anything,before they can hit you.
    I have tried this set and do you know how many Volcaronas that tried to QD in front of me i have stopped with Taunt?
    How many CB Outrages i have survived because i was able to setup Reflect up before Hazorus hits me?
    How many Specs DM i have survived from Hydreigon because i was fast enough to use LS before it hit me?
    But with your set Volcarona can freely get at +1/+1/+1 as you setup Light Screen,and then you switch to a counter while Rona gets at +2/+2/+2.Good luck stopping that...

    Also Virizion,even without max defense investement stops the Volt-Turn combo just fine!

    Supporting alexwolf - reliably setting up Screens involves having the Speed to set them up before mons like Haxorus or Mamoswine decimates you. Taunt is also much more effective on a faster user, who can prevent mons like Volcarona or Deoxys-D from setting up on Virizion. The surprise factor may allow you to get away with running max Defense instead of max Speed, but once the surprise is gone, you would want the Speed.

    Being too bulky can also be problematic, too, since you'd rather have Virizion die immediately after both Screens go up, rather than wasting a turn switching and putting your Sweeper vulnerable to taking a hard hit, despite the buffering from Screens.

    I think you should run at least 32 Spe EVs to outrun Max spe Adamant Dragonite so you can taunt it before it sets up effortless on you.

    I also agree with Pocket that 252 Spe or at least enough Speed to outrun max+ Base 101s sounds alot more practicable than going so defensive, because the main users of dual screens are HO teams that usually need to set-up the screens fast and often only once.


    I am not really sure if this set should be on-site at all, because there are so many other dual screeners that will do the job better 99% of the time. I see that virzions huge boon in this regard is its typing and the surprise value, however the latis have a similar typing and especially as a Dual Screener being Pursuit weak isn't that bad.

    I don't like this set much either. I guess it's decent screener for more balanced teams because it's bulky, but I feel like I rather run a screening Alakazam most of the time.

    i do think that max speed has its merits, dont get me wrong, i just think that max defense is better. but rest assured, should this get a chance to be written up, it will be stressed that running max speed is a great option. as for your second point....why would you ever want virizion to die after both screens go up? i know that i would always rather have virizion be durable and stick around throughout a match to set up screens multiple times. if youre so intent on using a suicide screener, dual screens virizion isnt for you.

    thats actually a great point, i'll change the op to reflect that

    lol what, virizion and the latis' typing isnt even REMOTELY similar (grass/fighting vs dragon/psychic???). i dont think any dual screener is vastly superior to virizion in any way. if youre aiming for an HO screener, then obviously a pokemon like espeon will be a better choice. if youre aiming for a defensive screener, then clearly bronzong is superior. however, if youre going for a bulky offense team that needs a screener, virizion is one of the best choices out there (along with the latis and what not). seriously, try this set out, i think you'll be pleasantly surprised

    why would you ever want to run a screening alakazam over this lol? alakazam is a great screener on heavy offense teams....but this virizion isnt MEANT to be used on heavy offense teams. if youre running HO, then alakazam is an excellent choice, but if you think alakazam is a better screener than virizion, youre missing the point of this set.

    I realize that Alakazam is only better on offensive teams, but I just said I rather run him because I generally play heavy offense or stall. This set seems nice on a balanced team(as I stated) since it's rather bulky and doesn't really need screens to take some hits.
