Gible (LC Analysis)



[Overview]
<p>In terms of Little Cup play, Gible hasn't changed much since the fourth generation. With its excellent Dragon- and Ground-type STABs, Gible is able to hit a large portion of the metagame very hard. However, with other Dragon-types Axew and Deino now prevalent, Gible finds it difficult to carve out a unique niche. Its greatest advantage in the metagame is Sand Veil, which, like its big brother Garchomp, allows it to abuse an evasion boost gained from sandstorm. Maximizing Gible's potential from Sand Veil is your best option when using this little dragon.</p>

[SET]
name: Sand Veil Abuser
move 1: Substitute
move 2: Outrage
move 3: Earthquake
move 4: Fire Blast
item: Life Orb
ability: Sand Veil
nature: Naive
evs: 196 Atk / 116 SpA / 180 Spe

[Set Comments]
<p>When Sandstorm is in play, Gible is able to take advantage of one of its few unique points, which is the evasion boost gained from Sand Veil. By switching into a Choice-locked Electric-type attack from Chinchou or Magnemite, or by being brought out after a KO, Gible can easily find time to set up a Substitute. Outrage is very powerful and Gible's strongest STAB move, hitting many walls for heavy damage. Earthquake is one of Gible's prime advantages over Axew, hitting Steel-types who resist Outrage for super effective damage. Fire Blast allows Gible to destroy Ferroseed, who would otherwise tank its attacks with ease. With some luck, Gible will be able to knock out a few Pokemon, with Sand Veil keeping its Substitute in tact.</p>

[Additional Comments]
<p>Support from Hippopotas is a must, as Sand Stream activates the Sand Veil boost. Hippopotas is also very useful in setting up Stealth Rock, which helps Gible in scoring KOs. Dragon Claw has some utility over Outrage to give Gible a chance against Pokemon such as Misdreavus, who can stall out Outrage with Substitute, though the enormous boost in power will be missed. Hidden Power Ice is viable if Gligar is a threat to your team, as it can otherwise Roost off Gible's Outrages. Ferroseed makes a good partner, as it absorbs Dragon and Ice-type attacks aimed at Gible and sets up Spikes. Bronzor also makes for a solid teammate, resisting both of Gible's weaknesses and setting up screens to aid Gible's meager defenses.</p>

[Other Options]
<p>When using Gible, you have to be careful to make sure the set you're using is not outclassed by another Ground- or Dragon-type. A Choice Scarf set is potentially viable, as Gible hits 14 speed with a positive nature, although with a relatively low Attack stat, it may have trouble revenge killing. Choice Band is also possible, though Deino and Axew offer more power. Although not yet released, when abusing Substitute with Sand Veil, boosting berries such as Leichi or Salac are viable for sweeping. </p>

[Checks and Counters]
<p>Gible is not terribly difficult to check, as with its frailty, almost anything that outspeeds it is a threat. When it comes to counters, Gligar is immune to Earthquake, can stall Outrage with Roost, and easily KO Gible with Earthquake or Acrobatics, but it must watch out for Hidden Power Ice. Misdreavus can also stall out Outrage by using Substitute and can set up with Nasty Plot or cripple Gible with Will-O-Wisp. Shellder is bulky enough to withstand an Outrage and can KO through Substitute using Icicle Spear. Snover is particularly notable, because it removes Gible's Sand Veil boost and can easily KO with Blizzard or Ice Shard, though it must watch out for Fire Blast when Gible is still behind a Substitute.</p>

[Dream World]
<p>Gible gains Rough Skin through the Dream World. If you use it, however, you are removing one of Gible's only utilities. Due to its frailty, it is unlikely that the damage from Rough Skin will be of much use anyway.</p>

Yeah, I didn't realize that when posting it and requested a change on the index thread in my reservation.
 
snover removes sandstorm and blizzards/ice shards it

Shellder tanks Outrage and Icicle Spears it, breaking subs and killing it

Bronzor resists its weaknesses and can set up screens and sr while killing Snover with Flash Cannon.

Needs Dream World section on Rough Skin. Substitute sets can use pinch berries pretty well too.

Once that's done,




[QC 1/2]

sandhax sucks and so do you for using it
