PostSubject: Post Your Gen 6 sets Here!   Tue Oct 22, 2013 12:02 pm

Here, you can post your ideas for what Gen 6 sets you like to use, or what Gen 6 sets you think will be useful in this current metagame. 

Make them look like this example:

Reuniclus @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
- Trick Room
- Psychic
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball

Here are some sets that I thought of:

Malamar @ Leftovers
Trait: Contrary
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spe
Adamant nature
- Superpower
- Night Slash
- Psycho Cut
- Rock Slide

Obviously, the idea here is Superpower + Contrary here.  Superpower actually gives a Bulk-Up boost to Malamar every time that it is used.  If Malamar gets Sucker Punch via an egg move or a tutor move, then it should definitely be included on this set.

Talonflame @ Flying Gem
Trait: Gale Wings
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 spe
Adamant nature
- Acrobatics
- Flare Blitz
- Swords Dance
- Roost

Depending on the availability of Gale Wings (an hidden ability), this set could be interesting, to say the least.  Gale Wings gives all of Talonflame's Flying moves a +1 priority bonus, which means that Talonflame won't have to worry about those Scizors and Azumarills picking Talonflame off with their priority moves.  Since Talonflame doesn't get many good attacking moves besides its stab moves, Swords Dance and Roost are used for its last two moves. Keep in mind that Roost has priority here.

Aromatisse @ Leftovers
Trait: Aroma Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe
Bold nature
- Moonblast
- Thunderbolt
- Calm Mind
- Rest

What sets this fairy apart from the other fairies?  Well, this Fairy has decent physical bulk, unlike a lot of the other fairies.  Also, Aromatisse gets Moonblast and Thunderbolt, which has fairly unresisted coverage, apart from foes like Steelix and Nidoking.  Rest also is  decent move of healing, as the sleep counter doesn't reset after every switch-out in Gen 6.

Trancheuse (Aegislash) (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Stance Change
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
- King's Shield
- Swords Dance
- Iron Head
- Shadow Sneak

As far as I know, this is what everyone who's used this thing runs. It's pretty basic. Set up in Shield Stance and then rip through everything with your good STAB coverage.

EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Iron Head
- Swords Dance
- Shadow Sneak
- Sacred Sword

super bulky, set up sd and take a few pokes down, countered by bulk up talonflame though

Greninja @ Expert Belt
Ability: Protean
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Power-Up Punch
- Night Slash
- Water Shuriken
- Bounce

It very well may be possible that no one has considered this. It's one of the few times expert belt could be considered acceptable as Greninja's coverage hits 472 Pokemon super effectively. Just think of every move you use as STAB super effective with a 1.2x boost, because that's pretty much how it is with this set.

Greninja @ Expert Belt
Ability: Protean
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Modest Nature
- Surf
- Dark Pulse
- Hidden Power [Fighting]
- Ice Beam

Slightly worse coverage (hits 470 super effectively) and no priority, but this set takes advantage of Greninja's higher base special attack, and higher base power on every single move.

Hawlucka @ Life Orb
Ability: Limber
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 Def
Jolly nature
- Flying Press
- Hi Jump Kick
- Stone Edge
- U-turn

flying Press is the point of this set.  (I think that) it gets a double Stab bonus on the move Flying Press, since Flying Press is a Flying and Fighting move simultaneously.  If that is the case, then Flying Press has a base power of 180 power (factoring stab), making it a good move indeed.  The rest of its moves are just for coverage purposes.

Flying Press would be...
Super-Effective against Dark, Fighting, Grass, Ice, and Normal Pokémon
Neutral against Bug, Dragon, Fire, Ground, Rock, Steel, and Water Pokémon
Not Very Effective against Electric, Fairy, Flying, Poison, and Psychic Pokémon
and Resisted fully by Ghosts.

Another set:

Diggersby @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Huge Power (hidden)
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 Def
Adamant nature
- Earthquake
- Return
- Stone Edge
- U-Turn

Obviously, Huge Power stabbed Earthquake is the main draw here.  Diggersby also has more power and more speed than Azumarill, making a Choice Scarfer a possibly better option than a Choice Bander.

Noivern @ Life Orb
Ability: Infiltrator
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Taunt
- Boomburst
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball

Kind of late-game sweeping thingy. Focus Blast and S Ball are for coverage in aid of Boomburst, which is the greatest damage w/o drawbacks available (still looking forward to when Noivern can learn Draco Meteor, but -2 SpA is harsh to take).

Noivern can learn Draco meteor, it also learns Hurricane. With SpA like it has, I certainly wouldn't be using a fully STABless set. Looking for opinions on the Greninja sets I put up. I need to know whether to code both into randbat or just one.

@Invalid: You should include both into randbat, especially since the special set has more overall power.

@DaShrink: I would probably put moves on Noivern like Draco Meteor, Flamethrower, U-turn, and Boomburst.  I would probably give it items like Choice Specs or Life Orb.  Boomburst may seem out of place, but it is a base 140 power move with 100% accuracy (who doesn't like that), and it is likely Noivern's best move against Fairies.  Of course, since a lot of the fairies have decent to high special defense, Boomburst may not help much in that respect.

Lets post some mega evolution sets:

Charizard @ Carizardite X
Ability: Blaze (Tough Claws when mega-evolved)
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly nature
- Flare Blitz
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake
- Dragon Dance

This is just your typical dragon Dance set, and I feel that this is probably one of Charizard X's best sets.  Flare Blitz and Dragon claw get boosts from both stab and Tough Claws, and Fire + Dragon is a very good stab combination to have.  Earthquake is just there for coverage, but it can probably be easily replaced with something else, because the Fire / Dragon move combination hits nearly everything for at least neutral damage (I only know of Heatran, Azumarill, and Carbink resisting the Fire / Dragon combination, and Heatran and Carbink are hit hard by Earthquake).  Dragon Claw could always be replaced with Outrage, and Flare Blitz could be replaced with Fire Punch if that is desired.

Charizard @ Charizardite Y
Ability: Blaze (Drought when mega-evolved)
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid nature
- Fire Blast
- Solarbeam
- Focus Blast
- Dragon Pulse

This Charizard mega evolution set can be potent as well.  Its fire attacks can be very powerful, since they are boosted by stab and Sun at the same time.  This charizard can also be very effective against water Pokémon, as it can not be as affected by Water moves, and it can unleash powerful Solarbeams at those Water types.  Focus Blast and Dragon Pulse are just there for coverage purposes, but they can be replaced with other moves if desired.  In particular, Roost can be valuable on this set at times.

Exploud @ Choice Specs
Ability: Scrappy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
Modest nature
- Boomblast
- Fire Blast
- Focus Blast
- Ice Beam

This should be obvious, but just click Boomblast and watch literally everything die. 2HKOs defensive Skarm, Jellicent, and others. Chansey and Blissey are pretty much the only way you're slowing this thing down at all, it's a huge wall breaking machine.

Azumarill @ leftovers
Ability: Huge Power
248 HP / 252 ATK / 8 SpDef
Adamant Nature
-Substitute
-Waterfall
-Play Rough
-Focus Punch

This is a fun set. Everyone expects Choice Band set, and then you ship out substitute and they panic. Waterfall and Play rough have a decent coverage together, and focus punch hits things like ferrothorn hard. The problem is getting burnt, but other than that, this set can do massive damage to an opposing team. Aegislash also gives this set slight problems, because it resists play rough and is immune to focus punch.
