Lurantis @ Heavy-Duty Boots / Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 16 SpA / 240 SpD or 252 HP / 240 Def / 16 SpA
Sassy / Relaxed Nature
- Defog / Aromatherapy / Knock Off
- Leaf Storm
i frankly have not used lurantis for a while, but it has merit as a defogger that beats most standard rockers like rhydon, miltank, gunfisk, and of course, stunfisk. in addition, contrary + leaf storm + superpower allows lurantis to have an offensive presence, even with a defensive spread. you dont mind either of stunfisk's stabs thanks to the grass typing's natural resistances, and foul play does negligible damage that you can always heal off. you do have to worry about getting hit with toxic, unless you opt for aroma, but that kind of cuts into your niche so idk if i can recommend it in good faith but it is an option. regardless, leaf storm will always 2hko, making this set a counter
. 16 spatk investment is just there to hit an even 200 spatk but it really isnt necessary i just like the look of it :owohehe:
16 SpA Contrary Lurantis Leaf Storm over 2 turns vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Stunfisk: 512-608 (121.3 - 144%) -- guaranteed KO in 2 turns after Leftovers recovery
0 Atk Stunfisk Foul Play vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Lurantis: 78-92 (22.6 - 26.7%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery
keep an eye out for the voting slate!
ive listed appletun as a counter rather than a check because apple acid will always 2hko spdef stunfisk, and while you do have to worry about toxic over the course of the game, you will guaranteed win the 1v1.
with that said, please vote for 1 check and 1 counter! my votes go to
. voting will end tomorrow, sunday, may 1st at 11:59 pm gmt-4. thanks for eveyone who participated, and good luck!
