    Clefable (Clefable) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Unaware
    EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
    Calm Nature
    - Cosmic Power
    - Softboiled
    - Stored Power

    This is seriously a beast set. Is there a way I can get this set featured on the actual smogon page?
    Let me get your opinions.​

    Besides that we do not think that this question need a whole thread dedictated to it, this set is actually suggested in the Other Options paragraph of the analysis page. Our problem with this set is that Clefable is a Taunt bait and 60 base power non-STAB moves don't quite make the cut. It faces some competition with the faster and more powerful Sigilyph. Gallade being in the Top Ten does not help, either, as well as the other popular RU Fighting Pokemon.
    • 252+ Atk Gallade Close Combat vs. +1 252 HP / 4 Def Clefable: 360-426 (91.37 - 108.12%) -- 50% chance to OHKO
    • 252+ Atk Hitmonlee Close Combat vs. +1 252 HP / 4 Def Clefable: 350-414 (88.83 - 105.07%) -- 31.25% chance to OHKO
    • 252+ Atk Emboar Superpower vs. +1 252 HP / 4 Def Clefable: 356-422 (90.35 - 107.1%) -- 43.75% chance to OHKO
    Note, that they do not hold item. A CB, a Life Orb, or simple entry hazards Clefable are known not to be weak to despise this one being weak to them can make an almost OHKO a OHKO. And it should have a lot of trouble healing it out of Drain Punches.

    Edit: Pardon us, the page update has a few problems.

    Sorry, Cosmic Power Sigilyph is better.

    Hello, welcome to smogon!

    Anyways, this is the wrong place to post a Pokemon set to try and get it onsite, this forum is mainly used for metagame discussion and community projects. The area of the site you're looking for is contributions and corrections, where you can post a set and the QC team will look it over and see if its worth a spot onsite. Here's a link to the subforum: http://www.smogon.com/forums/forums/ru-analyses.181/
