I am a big fan of this set. Especially paired with Reuniclus, as it will not take any sand damage because of Magic Guard.
Hippowdon | Leftovers | Sand Stream
Impish | 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 Spe | Max IVs
Earthquake | Stealth Rock | Whirlwind | Slack Off
Hippowdon is a great start to this team because Reuniclus is generally best on balance builds. Hippowdon not only provides a way to beat Bisharp, Tyranitar, and Mega Charizard X (all like to come on Reuni), but it provides Stealth Rock support which is a great way to get that out of the way. Reuniclus hazard stack is a great playstyle and it can provide a vital core when paired with a spinner and spikes from Ferrothorn for example. It can heal itself constantly and will overall be a valuable asset to the team. Hippowdon has been getting a lot of usage lately and this is one of the reasons!
Yes you're allowed to nominate a Pokemon that was nominated before for a different team slot.Can you nominate a poke that was already nominated, but for a different teamslot? If not, I'll delete the post, but if so:
Houndoom @ Houndoominite
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 40 HP / 8 Def / 208 SpA / 252 Spe
- Dark Pulse
- Fire Blast
- Nasty Plot
I feel like a nasty plot mega houndoom could be an interesting choice. It is a great check to bisharp and mega sableye, two of the biggest threats to reuniclus as mentioned in several posts above. It is also a half-decent gengar check after mega-evolving, as well as destroying jirachi and celebi, two new prominent threats. Also, its one of the best offensive megagross checks, being able to switch in on anything but EQ or hammer arm, and OHKO it with a fire blast. Crapping on common stall cores is always nice as well. However, we might need something else to deal with T-tar, but we have 4 more pokes to work with.
