BW2 UU Threat List with common sets !

Post by Fille on Fri Mar 14, 2014 5:37 pm

Ok, so I'm not applying for tutoring this round, which means I'll lose my access to the Academy Lounge on the PO Forums, and they'll delete my post. So I basically have nowhere else to put this where it'd be beneficial for me to have it, so I figured that I might as well just post it here, so those who cares could make use of it.

Hax: A term used to categorize side effects, Critical hits and other Luck Based RNG's.

STAB: Same Type Attack Boost, a 50% boost on moves that are of the same type as user.

Entry Hazards: When the opponent switches in, this will do damage to the opponent. Stealth rocks is a rock type entry hazard that does damage based on the type chart.
¼  = 3.125%
½  = 6.25%
1   = 12.5%
2   = 25%
4   = 50%


SpinBlocking: As Rapid Spin is a normal type, Ghost types are immune to this move. This means that it will not have any effect, and opponents entry hazards is to stay.

SpeedCreep: Adding enough speed to outspeed a certain pokemon.

EVs: 192 Atk / 252 SAtk / 64 Spd
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Overheat
- Hidden Power [Grass]
- Close Combat
- ExtremeSpeed
notes from creator:
I so love this set. Basically just a mixed wallbreaking set utilizing Arcanine's horribly overlooked base 100 SAtk stat to shred through plenty of pokes with that STAB Overheat, netting surprise KOs on things like Hitmontop. HP Grass annihilates common switches such as Rhyperior and Swampert, while easily 2HKOing Slowbro. Walled by Chandelure with Close Combat, walled by Snorlax and P2 without it (although the latter takes like nothing anyway; download ones get beaten at least), so meep. EVs outspeed Adamant Honchkrow and stuffs. Also takes a button less recoil than the physical set which is another big draw.

Set up (Azelf) @ Life Orb

Stealth Rock * / Fire Blast


This set is basically there to outspeed scarfed Mienshao, which is one of the biggest threats in the tier ! If there are no pokemons that you'd like to outspeed with the Choice scarf, then trick it onto enemy wall. Umbreon is a common switch in to Azelf that doesn't like to get a choice scarf.

I have some basic term explanations in there, as well as 2-3 links to useful pages for new players. This is because one of my tutees was all out new to competitive battling, which also means that the first time I'm mentioning an item, ability and move (that is not just basic damage without any honourable side-effects), I have a brief explanation right after. Note that most of these are just common sets, not the best sets, and these are all my perspective. Something might be added (I think I forgot to mention Nidoking, neither did I mention Chandelure as it is utter crap really, only Carl Murray can use it properly), while I've mentioned some spreads that other people would never think of ( See Zapdos, Los Dios). I haven't mentioned too many LU pokemons either, but some are mentioned (Rotom, Mismagius, Qwilfish still LU?).

Enjoy, or just scroll on.

Yanmega (M) @ Weakness Policy
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Endure
- Bug Buzz
- Air Slash
- Hidden Power [Ground]

Something I've been trying out really, just endure the SE attack, activate weakness policy, win. If only SR activated Weakness Policy :c This set has been starting to finally gain traction, and is an amazing late-game sweeper, when all of its counters are weakened or taken out, this set really cuts through teams like a scissors through paper.
