lol fuck. itll be a while before its entirely finished, but anything that i steal from you will be credited accordingly. Id keep what you have written just in case Sanger Zonvolt likes what you wrote better.A few to include
Edit: While I was writing this -Clone- reserved M-Beedrill. He can take what I wrote and change it around if he wants and claim it for himself since I didn't reserve it initially. Whatever works best is fine by me just let me know and I'll edit as such.
Beedrill @ Beedrillite
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
- Poison Jab
- Drill Run
- Protect / Knock Off / Pursuit
Role: Revenge Killer / Late-Game Cleaner
What it Does: M-Beedrills role in terms of OU finds itself primarily on Volt-Turn and Hyper Offensive builds as both a Revenge Killer and Cleaner. Adaptability boosted U-Turn allows it to switch into an appropriate check and counter while having the speed and power necessary to threaten both offensive and defensive builds. Poison Jab is used to break Fairy types while providing a strong STAB for neutral coverage against a variety of Pokemon. Drill run is coverage to hit Heatran in particular as well as others such as Cobalion, Terrakion, and Empoleon to name a few. Protect is to give it a free turn for Mega Evolution as its poor base speed prior to mega evolution as well as general scouting. Knock Off is for stall-breaking utility and pairs well with Magnezone to remove Shed Shell from Skarmory and Ferrothorn. Pursuit is for Pursuit Trapping weakened mons and bulky Psychic type who try to switch from being threatened by U-Turn.
Good Teammates: As mentioned previously Magnezone provides an excellent partner from both an offensive and defensive standpoint along with providing momentum with Volt Switch. Due to the nature of where you would use M-Beedrill Stealth Rock Setters such as Azelf, Sash Mamoswine and Lando-T can be useful partners to provide this hazard. Healing Wish users such as Jirachi and Latias are solid partners to heal M-Beedrill HP and Status mid-late game with Healing Wish, with Latias being able to provide Defog Support to remove hazards for M-Beedrill. Azumarill, Diggersby, Rotom-W, Garchomp, Greninja, Bisharp, and Tyranitar are a handful of other partners that can be used with M-Beedrill as well.
What Counters it: Consistent counters include bulky Steel types like Ferrothorn, Scizor and Skarmory as M-Beedrill doesn't have the power or utility to threaten them in a 1v1 scenario. M-Aerodactyl, Rhyperior, Gliscor are some counters to provide a more offensive aspect along with defensive utility to threaten M-Beedrill with. M-Beedrill is extremely frail and prone to hazard stacking from both offensive and defensive archetypes so utilizing hazards can apply pressure to M-Beedrill. M-Beedrill is prone to users of priority such as Bisharp, Azumarill, Diggersby, Scizor and for the most part any priority user that utilizes non Fighting priority can threaten M-Beedrill as well.
Any Additional Info: M-Beedrill's success is found on teams that continuously apply offensive pressure and as such from both a practical and team-building perspective one should take this into account when using and building around M-Beedrill. Also remember that Adaptability boosts the power of its STAB moves and not its coverage moves, so don't overestimate the power of Drill Run and miscellaneous coverage if being used. M-Beedrill can be viewed as a high risk high reward Pokemon so maximize coverage with teambuilding to improve the rewards and minimize risk.
Mamoswine (M) @ Focus Sash
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Ice Shard
- Icicle Spear / Endeavor / Icicle Crash
- Stealth Rock
Role: Hazard Setter
What it Does: Provides Stealth Rock consistently with its use of Focus Sash and Oblivious nature which makes it immune to Taunt. Ice Shard to provide revenge killing aspects when necessary against weakened opponents and to provide a last resort hit before going down. Earthquake for STAB to hit Pokemon such as Heatran, Charizard-X, Bisharp among others. Icicle Spear for STAB used to break Gliscor, Multiscale Dragonite, Sash Breloom, and Sash mons in general. Endeavor can be used on Hyper Offensive builds once sash is activated to get an opposing mon into the 1% mark and either revenge kill it through Ice Shard or have a partner pick it off. Icicle Crash is more consistent for damage output but loses the benefits of the other two move slots.
Good Teammates: Healing Wish users such Latias and Jirachi to provide various utility and to maintain a weakened Mamoswines Sash if its still intact. Partners such as Thundurus, Raikou, M-Venusaur, Celebi can help to break bulky Water types that Mamoswine has issues with. Offensive Psychic Types such as M-Alakazam, Latios, Latias, M-Gallade, M-Gardevoir, can help with various Fighting Types that can threaten Mamoswine. M-Pinsir, Talonflame, Staraptor, M-Heracross can be used to threaten bulky Grass types to alleviate the pressure on Mamoswine against opposing mons such as Defensive Celebi, M-Venusaur, and Ferrothorn.
What Counters it: Levitate Bronzong resists Ice and is immune to Earthquake. Skarmory has the bulk to not worry about Mamoswines attacks and can set hazards, heal, and threaten back until its worn down or defeated. Bulky water types such as Rotom-W and Slowbro completely counter this set and have the bulk and typing to threaten Mamoswine back.
Any Additional Info: It's best to lead off with this as to not run the risk of breaking Focus Sash through opponents setting up hazards initially. Endeavor is good on offensive builds while secondary Ice STAB is good on more Balanced builds that don't require so much pressure on momentum.
edit: on second thought if u want i can just delete my post since urs is done and Im barely halfway thru mine. just lemme know lol
