CLASSIC FAM SETS

Post by JonTolley on Mon Jan 23, 2017 8:07 pm

These sets gained popularity as certain members of our beloved PokéSpot became known for running these sets. Here they will be remembered and perhaps used again.

Humberto Miranda's Lead Liepard (GEN 6)
Still with PokéSpot, but he is a rare sight. When asked for some signature sets back in the day, this is what he gave me. It serves as a good anti-lead in a meta where everyone either sets up rocks or is boosting from the get-go with dragon dances. This set takes some time to use properly.

Humby (Liepard) @ Life Orb  
Ability: Prankster  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe  
Jolly Nature  
- Encore  
- Sucker Punch  
- Play Rough  
- Copycat


Alexi Diaz's Support Latios (GEN 6)
This set came out of no where. We all doubted it, but soon saw that it would be the stuff of legend. 100% original straight out of Alexi's desire to improve sweeping at high-level Smogon OU battles. This set was often partnered with double dance Landorous made by Alex Merrit (below) to savagely destroy teams.

Pokéspot Savior (Latios) @ Light Clay  
Ability: Levitate  
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Timid Nature  
IVs: 0 Atk  
- Draco Meteor  
- Light Screen  
- Reflect  
- Memento  


Alex Merrit's Double Dance Sweeper Landorous-T (GEN 6)
No longer among the PokéSpot family, Alex was a skilled battler. This set destroyed the competitive ladder of OU. It would eventually create the need for Support Latios as well! Once Landorous-T starts to dance, there won't be much short of Stone Edge missing to stop you. Not even Firemen climb ladder this fast.

Set Up N Ladder (M) @ Lum Berry/Leftovers  
Ability: Intimidate  
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe  
Adamant Nature  
- Earthquake  
- Stone Edge  
- Swords Dance  
- Rock Polish


Alec Grennan's Signature Mega Charizrd X (GEN 6)
No longer part of PokéSpot, one of our trusted Fam and seasoned battlers. He vigorously tested for the best Mega Charizard X team, and this is the fruit of all his hard work. Get your dust pan ready; this zard sweeps.

Grennan (Charizard-Mega-X) (M) @ Charizardite X
Ability: Tough Claws  
EVs: 72 HP / 252 Atk / 184 Spe  
Adamant Nature  
- Flare Blitz  
- Dragon Claw  
- Dragon Dance  
- Roost


Kevin Brobst's Signature Mega Metagross (GEN 6)
More notably seen in his profile picture, this particular Metagross is loved by none other than Kevin Brobst as nothing less than his signature pokémon. Catch these hands.

K-Brobst (Metagross) @ Metagrossite  
Ability: Clear Body  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Jolly Nature  
- Hone Claws  
- Bullet Punch  
- Zen Headbutt  
- Ice Punch


Nick Lancione's Tricky Sableye (GEN 6)
Though Sableye  got it's claim to fame in Gen 6, this particular sset has one goal: Make Talonflame regret existing. Iron Ball hard counters it by cutting it's speed and literally grounding it so EQ's are able to hit it. Even if Talonflame is no where to be found, Tricking Iron Ball will cause havoc all the same to an opponent's team.

Sableye @ Iron Ball  
Ability: Prankster  
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpA / 252 Def  
Calm Nature  
- Trick  
- Will-O-Wisp  
- Recover  
- Dark Pulse


Jon Tolley's Hax Jirachi (GEN 6)
This Jirachi is a known criminal, notoriously known for stealing wins with sheer luck alone. This set aims to flinch your opponent into defeat as you shamelessly laugh at their undeserved loss. Those who praise the the hax gods will find themselves Jolley using this set.

Acolyte (Jirachi) @ Choice Scarf  
Ability: Serene Grace  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe  
Jolly Nature  
- U-turn  
- Iron Head  
- Heart Stamp  
- Fire Punch


Nick Fishman's Fairy-Killer Thunderous-T (GEN 6)
Originally designed to destroy anything associated with the type Fairy. Simple yet destructive. Although it aims to ruin a Fairy's day, no one is exempt from getting OHKO'd. Don't sleep on Sludge Wave. Legend says that not even Kyurem-B's  are safe.

Thundurus-T@Life Orb
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe
Timid Nature
-Nasty Plot
-Thunderbolt
-Hidden Power [Ice]
-Sludge Wave


David Seven's Rage Quit Whimsicott (GEN 6)
At first it may not look good on paper, but don't judge until you send it out in battle. Prankster gives Substitute and Attract infurriating levels of effectiveness. Leech Seed and Leftovers more than make up for the damage Substitute creates. Bring some hazard support as opponents will often switch out from infatuation with this cute devil.

Cornbread (Whimsicott) (F) @ Leftovers  
Ability: Prankster  
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe  
Adamant Nature  
IVs: 0 Atk  
- Taunt  
- Leech Seed  
- Attract  
- Substitute


Jefferey White's Bulky Sweeper Volcarona (GEN 6)
Frankly put, it's in the name. It's bulky. It sweeps. Screw that timid bullshit. Leave your enemies confused as you survive hits and dance your ass off.

Volcarona@ Leftovers
Ability: Flame Body
EVs: 252 Def/ 252 HP /6 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Attk
-Quiver Dance
-Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Giga Drain


Kevin Bobst's Slug Life Shellos (GEN6)
"Ever since Gen 4 I loved Shellos and its derpy ass face. Especially east sea. So when Gen 6 rolled around, I decided to make a competitive set with the idea of it being a troll/stall set. I perfected the set 3 times, hence the 3.0, and it works great. What really makes this set shine is nobody expects it. I've embarrassed live twitch streamers hosting viewer battles by using it before. Hell, even PokéSpot's own Alexi Diaz was thrown off by it during a tournament match between us as he overpredicted, because he associated it being part ground like its evolution, as many mistakenly do." -Kevin Brobst
Shit works. Sticky hold makes sure no one can Knock Off your defense boosting Eviolite.

SlugLife3.0 (Shellos)
Ability: Sticky-Hold
Item: Eviolite
Level: 100
Nature: Bold
IVs: 31/0/31/31/31/31
EVs: 252 Def, 252 SpD, 4 HP
Moves:
- Recover
- Scald
- Stockpile
- Toxic


Alexi Diaz's Eternal Mega Slowbro (GEN 6)
First off, Why Game Freak? WHY!? Do you like stall? Well sit down and listen up. This undying creature is just for you. Shell Armor prevents Crits (which ignore defense boosts), combine this with Defense boosting moves and Slack Off, you will be sticking around for a while. Recommended to keep a Heal Bell user on deck for this one. (seriously this thing is annoying).

Calm as Rock (Slowbro) @ Slowbronite
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP 252 SpDef
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
-Scald
-Calm Mind
-Iron Defense
-Slack Off


Alexi Diaz's Earthquake Eating Mega Scizor (GEN 6)
Now, it's no surprise Landorous is a popular pokémon, so how do you beat it? With this set right here. This Scizor does not give a fuck about STAB EQ's from a Landorous. So sit back and relax while you nom nom on some ground attacks.

DeliciousLandoEQs (Scizor-Mega) @ Scizorite  
Ability: Technician  
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def  
Impish Nature  
- Bug Bite  
- Bullet Punch  
- Swords Dance  
- Roost


Alexi Diaz's Anti-Clefable Landorous-T (GEN 6)
Defensive Clefable was/is also a problem with it's great stats and it's abilities Unaware or Magic Gaurd. Both of these abilites are annoying. To get past this annoyance, we look no further than Landorous. This set is able to 2 shot any clefable with EQ even with leftovers and without Stealth Rocks damage, all thanks to Earth Plate. DAMN. It is pretty standard otherwise with SR and Explosion.

ABLED (Landorus-Therian) (M) @ Earth Plate  
Ability: Intimidate  
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe  
Adamant Nature  
- Earthquake  
- Stone Edge  
- Explosion  
- Stealth Rock
