OU Ribombee [QC 1/1] [GP 1/1]

Ribombee @ Focus Sash
Ability: Shield Dust
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Sticky Web
- Moonblast
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Stun Spore / Quiver Dance

Ribombee has recently risen in usage thanks to the addition of Sticky Web to its movepool in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon making it a solid pick for the hyper offensive teams being spammed on the OU ladder during the Official Ladder Tournament. Serving as a lead in most games, Ribombee’s main job is setting up Sticky Web while applying enough pressure against the opponent that it doesn’t become a liability. Moonblast is a solid STAB move that allows Ribombee to pressure other common leads like Landorus-T and Greninja. Hidden Power Fire is for problematic Steel-types such as Mega Scizor and Kartana that would otherwise threaten to set up on Ribombee. Stun Spore is a final catch-all option against Pokemon that threaten to set up on Ribombee such as Dragon Dance Mega Charizard X and Quiver Dance Volcarona. Ribombee is found solely on Sticky Web teams, meaning offensive Pokemon that appreciate foes having their speed decreased by Sticky Web, such as Gyarados and Mega Medicham, make for ideal teammates.
