I am not really sure this goes here , but im busy developing a walling combo for OU wich imo is really good. I was trying to find uncommon pokemon/sets or combos that can work. This was made to wall the most prominent physical attacks in OU to no end, namely : Breloom, Terrakion, Tyranitar,Cloyster,Gliscor,Haxorus,Scrafty,Scizor among others. The combo is like this :
Relaxed Steelix @ leftovers
Ability : Sheer force
EV's 252 hp, 252 def, 4 atk
Moves : Stealth rock, dragon tail, ice fang , gyro ball/eq
Set explaining :
Steelix was a defensive behemoth back in GCS, but a lot has changed since then. New very powerful fighting moves, but also in increase in much more powerful pokemon on both sides of the spectrum. Steelix reaches 354 hp and and 548 defense with this set. Stealth rock is obvious, dragon tail is for phazing, a sheer force ice fang even with no atk evs is a 2ko on dragonite with ms broken and on gliscor, both of who fail to 2ko you back. Gyro ball is just a hard hitting attack against stuff like terrakion.
Some damage calcs :
Dragonite Adamant with 252 atk's +2 Outrage vs Steelix : 26.8% - 31.6%
Dragonite Adamant with 252 atk's +1 Earthquake vs Steelix : 44.6% - 53.1% ( never a 2ko with leftovers).
Scizors choice band superpower vs Steelix : 52.5% - 62.1% ( never a 2ko with leftovers and the atk drops)
Impish Gyarados @ leftovers
Ability : Intimidate
EV's : 252 hp , 252 def , 4 atk
Moves : Rest , sleep talk , waterfall, roar
Set explaining :
Your standard resttalk gyarados, the other part of this walling combo. Gyara reaches 394 and 282 defense on this set but 423 defense when factoring in Intimidate.
Combo explaining :
Gyarados only has 2 weaknesses, rock and electric. Steelix is immune to electric and resists rock attacks 4x ( se from terrakion does pathetic damage and cc does pathetic damage vs gyara and he is then -1def-1spdef so he will likely be switching again).Gyarados using resttalk means he can absorb wow and scalds as if they are nothing.
Steelix weaknesses are fire,ground,water and fighting ( all 2x). Gyarados is immune to ground , and resists fire,water and fighting 2x. He is also immune to toxic and twave, something his team or even gyarados greatly aprecciates.
The key to this combo however, is to play mindgames with your opponent due the use of steelix physical bulk and intimidate. For example, after gyardos intimidates breloom his attacks do:
Adamant breloom's focus punch (252atk) -1 against steelix: 44.1% - 52.5% ( not a 2ko with leftovers)
Same brelooms seeb bomb @ -1 vs steelix : 11.9% - 14.1%.
He cant do much except switching out, if he sword dances he risks being roared or dragon tailed out. If he stays in and attacks , his attacks do nothing because steelix and gyara complement each other niceley , and every gyarados switch comes with intimidate.
I havent tested it out much, but on paper this sounds promising. I hope people get the idea even tough my explanation is a little bad.Someone interested here to help me out with this?
