New/Updated Battle StrategyEdit


Prankster StallEdit

  • Item: Leftovers
  • Ability: Prankster
  • Nature: Bold (+Defense, -Attack)
  • Evs: 252 Hp / 252 Def / 4 Sp. Atk
  • Moves:
    • Stun Spore
    • Moonblast
    • Leech Seed
    • Encore
  • The same set from The Dex still works the same, but with the added resistances granted by the Fairy typing, Substitue is no loner required. Instead, use the strong Fairy move moonblast to also protect you from getting shut down by taunt
  • Stun Spore and Leech Seed works well with Encore for a stalling set


New/Updated TriviaEdit

In-Depth TriviaEdit

  • The hoodie that hangs aroung it's neck, the wide stance of to hold it's baggy pants up, and even it's sprite animation in Black and White where he appears to be chewing something and does a little hop, which bears a striking resemblance to the Yosamite Sam cowboy strut, bears a resemblance to classic Western outlaws
  • The leather chaps, the bandanda, references to chewing tobaco and walking with spurs, it's Dark typing can be connected to the fact that outlaws were considered people outside te protection of the law, and it's pre-evolution living in a desert in a representation of the United States all add up to being a Western outlaw

New/Updated Battle StrategyEdit

Dragon Dance SweeperEdit

  • Item: Life Orb*
  • Ability: Shed Skin*
  • Nature: Jolly (+Speed, -Sp. Attack)*
  • Evs: 252 Atk / 4 Sp. Def / 252 Spe
  • Moves:
    • High-Jump Kick
    • Crunch
    • Dragon Dance
    • Poison Jab
  • Use Dragon Dance, High Jump Kick and Crunch, but a few staple changes in gen 6 have shifted it's role quite a bit, so put Poison Jab on the last slot to deal with i'ts 4x weakness to Fairies

Bulky SweeperEdit

  • Item: Leftovers
  • Ability: Shed Skin
  • Nature: Careful (+Sp. Defense, -Attack)
  • Evs: 252 Hp / 4 Atk / 252 Sp. Def
  • Moves:
    • Bulk-Up
    • Rest
    • Drain Punch
    • Knock Off
  • Both of Scrafty's Defense stats are at an admirable 115, so Super Training it in Sp. Def can make it take special hits, and to cover anythng else, use Bulk-Up
  • Use Rest if your health is low, and you don't have to worry about falling asleep because of the ability Shed Skin which heals off status conditions every turn by 30%. This will also protect you from status moves like Will-o-Wisp lr Toxic.
  • Use Drain Punch for more staying power, and Knock Off which got a huge buff in gen 6 to 65 base power. Knock Off also removes te opposing Pokemon's hold item and if it succesfully does it, the move will get a 1.5x boost on top of STAB


New/Updated TriviaEdit

General InfoEdit

  • Metagross lost its good defensive typing because Steel doesn't resist both Ghost- and Dark-types anymore, making it vulnerable to those types

New/Updated Battle StrategyEdit


Direct Gliscor CounterEdit

  • Item: Weakness Policy
  • Ability: Clear Body*
  • Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Sp. Attack)
  • Evs: 252 Hp / 252 Atk / 4 Spe
  • Moves:
    • Magnet Rise
    • Agility
    • Ice Punch
    • Meteor Mash
  • Switch in Metagross when you know Gliscor is going to use Toxic
  • Glicor will most definitely go fo Earthquake, so use your bulk to take the hit then use Magnt Rise
  • Gliscor will probably switch, so use Agility to set-up then use Ice Punch on the off-chance Gliscor stays in or sweep with Meteor Mash
  • It's a risky set, so the weakness policy might be useful since you are going to take a super effective hit anyways
