Slowbro [QC 0/2]

:dp/slowbro:


[OVERVIEW]

Slowbro's typing in Water / Psychic and great defensive stats make it a strong potent blanket check to most of the physical wallbreakers in the tier. Slowbro can spread Burns with Scald or use Future Sight to chip down walls for Slowbro's teammates to break them later on, or utilize Calm Mind to boost up it's lacking Spdef stat and turn it into a late game cleaner. Slowbro can even be a 1-time check to Weavile thanks to Colbur berry and is able to use Scald, Thunder wave, or Flamethrower. Slowbro is able to blanket check the likes of Garchomp, Dragonite, Infernape, and Lucario and threaten back with either Thunder Wave, Scald, Ice beam, or Flamethrower. However Slowbro can't always check Garchomp and Infernape. Infernape easily takes advantage of Slowbro with U-turn allowing it to pivot into something that can deal with Slowbro. Choice Band and Mixed Garchomp sets can easily overwhelm Slowbro forcing it out most of the times. Slowbro finds itself being worn down by common moves like U-turn and Volt Switch as due to it's typing it super effective damage from this and this makes Slowbro more easy to deal with. Lastly, Slowbro also finds itself being checked by Grass-types like Tangrowth and Shaymin due to it's lacking Speed and Spd stat often making it being forced out by their STAB moves.

[SET]
name: Defensive
move 1: Scald
move 2: Slack Off
move 3: Ice beam
move 4: Thunder Wave / Flamethrower
item: Colbur Berry / Leftovers
ability: Regenerator
nature: Bold
evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spa

[SET COMMENTS]

Scald is Slowbro's prefered stab as it has a 30% chance to cause a Burn and allows Slowbro to threaten the physical attackers it can check. Slack Off is mandatory as it's Slowbro's second option for recovery and works with Regenerator to keep Slowbro healthy throughout the match. Ice Beam let's it efficiently check Garchomp and Dragonite without having to spam Scald. Thunder Wave is good utility as it lets Slowbro slow things down and lets it teammates outspeed them later on. Colbur Berry allows it to be a 1-time check to Weavile and gives Slowbro a chance to use Thunder Wave or Scald for a chance to Burn it. Flamethrower is another option to as it allows Slowbro to 2HKO Weavile and also let's it better check Steel types like Skarmory and Lucario.

Teammates like Heatran, Shaymin, and Tangrowth are amazing for Slowbro. Heatran can check Grass-types like Shaymin and Tangrowth while also being able to check Latios, all Pokemon Slowbro hate, Slowbro in return can check Garchomp and Infernape for Heatran. Tangrowth is a good partner due to it also carrying the ability Regenerator allowing Slowbro and Tangrowth to turn into long lasting checks for numerous Pokemon in the tier. Tangrowth can be a blanket check to the likes of Rotom-W, Crawdaunt, Azumarill, and Feraligatr, all Pokemon that can cause Slowbro a lot of trouble to check at times. Slowbro and Tangrowth can also overwhelm checks such as Weavile and Freeze-dry Mamoswine due to their ability to outlast them and avoid bad situations while being able to apply pressure to them. Similarly, Shaymin can make good partners with Slowbro as for the same reasons Tangrowth does but with a few other positive qualities in a better Spe and Spdef stat allowing it to check Rotom-W, Crawdaunt, Azumarill, and Feraligatr more offensively and can even deal with opposing Tangrowth thanks to Air Slash.


[SET]
name: Future Sight
move 1: Scald
move 2: Future Sight
move 3: Slack Off
move 4: Calm Mind / Nasty Plot
item: Leftovers / Colbur Berry
ability: Regenerator.
nature: Bold
evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spa

[SET COMMENTS]

Future Sight is Slowbro's STAB move here as it likes to chip other Pokemon Down and allow its teammates to break through walls easier and apply pressure. Calm Mind is utilized to boost up Slowbro's Spdef and Spa stat. Calm mind also boosts up the power of Future Sight to better apply pressure against the opposing team. Nasty Plot is another option to boost up Slowbro's power even further at the cost of replacing Calm Mind which usually can be worth it. Leftovers is the better item instead of Colbur Berry for this set as without Thunder Wave or Flamethrower it won't be able to properly defend against the likes of Weavile but Colbur can still be utilized.

This Slowbro set can fit best on Offense, since teammates like Garchomp, Weavile, Infernape, and Mamoswine appreciate Future Sight support from Slowbro as these are all amazing wallbreakers that can all apply immense pressure against the opposing team. Garchomp, Infernape, and Mamoswine can help out with pressuring checks like Scizor, Weavile, and Rotom-W. Lucario pairs well with Slowbro as it can offensively check the likes of Weavile and Crawdaunt, Slowbro can also check the likes of Garchomp and Infernape, Pokemon Lucario is commonly forced out by. The previous mentioned Pokemon and Slowbro also all benefit from the likes of Skarmory, since it can set hazards such as Stealth Rock and Spikes. This also works in conjuction with Future Sight as this can best be utilized together to tear down walls and break through the opposing team.

[STRATEGY COMMENTS]
Other Options
=============

Calm Mind Slowbro can utilize Skill Swap to allow it to not be walled by Unaware Clefable and it can also takes advantage of this by not being setup fodder from Clefable, however this has little use outside of this and can even be a waste of a moveslot in other matchups.

Checks and Counters
===================

***U-turn and Volt Switch***: These are common moves that mess with Slowbro. U-turn and especially Volt Switch chip Slowbro's health down by a noticeable chunk, making it easier to break and force it out.

***Rotom-W***: Rotom-W can Hard wall Slowbro thanks to being immune to Thunder Wave and not minding Scald burns, Rotom-W can also utilize Trick and make Slowbro Choice locked by Choice Scarf to which makes it easier to deal with later on. Rotom-W must watch out for future sight, as Future Sight may do a noticable amount of damage to Rotom-W, sometimes forcing it out.

***Mixed Sets***: Mixed Garchomp, Mamoswine, and Infernape can easily bait in Slowbro and force it out. However these are all still Pokemon that Slowbro can check at times as they can still find themselves forced out.

***Grass-types***: Pokemon like Tangrowth and Shaymin hit Slowbro with super effective damage and easily force it out. Tangrowth can also use Knock off to get rid of it's item. Shaymin, thanks to Seed Flare, can handle Calm Mind Slowbro thanks to the Spdef drop. However, they must all watch out for Ice beam and Future sight.

Future Sight allows Slowbro to chip other Pokemon down and allow its teammates to break through walls easier and apply pressure. Calm Mind can be utilized to boost up the power of Future Sight to better apply pressure against the opposing team. Nasty Plot is another option to give Slowbro more immediate power over Calm Mind talk abt how losing special defense rise can suck. Leftovers is the preferred item instead of Colbur Berry , as this set won't be able to properly handle the likes of Weavile without Thunder Wave or Flamethrower. Colbur Berry can still be utilized for?

This Slowbro set fits best on offense Wallbreakers like Garchomp, Weavile, Infernape, and Mamoswine appreciate Future Sight support from Slowbro as Future Sight helps to pressure foes.

QC 1/2
Replace wherever u say Shaymin with Celebi.
I don't agree with the Tangrowth partnership in various things u said. Its a Regenerator core that still doesn't check Crawdaunt Bd azumarill and often not even feraligatr that well. Instead it's much more effective with poison heal breloom for exactly that, having not only the little bit of speed you need but also dark resist, status absorption for wisp rotom and more. Can still keep tang as a mention for partners with bro but the info below needs to be more accurate and can provide more partners with better synergy like u did with tran.

Doesn't do great vs mamo either, statistically u are losing to it.
Anyway outside of that, give a few more other options like trickroom, psychic or even block would be cool and your post is rdy
