Metagross @ Assault Vest
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpDef
Nature: Adamant
- Meteor Mash
- Zen Headbutt
- Earthquake
- Bullet Punch

Metagross is immune to Sludge Bomb, Giga Drain does very little to scratch Meta, and Hidden Power is a 4HKO. All the while, Metagross can OHKO with a Zen Headbutt.

252+ Atk Metagross Zen Headbutt vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Venusaur: 344-408 (94.5 - 112%) -- 68.8% chance to OHKO
252+ SpA Venusaur Hidden Power Ground vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Assault Vest Metagross: 88-104 (24.1 - 28.5%) -- 96.9% chance to 4HKO

Slowbro @ Leftovers
Ability: Regenerator
Nature: Bold
EV's: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
- Scald
- Slack Off
- Ice Beam
- Fire Blast

Resists everything sans EQ - which has a shot to 5hko if Slowbro doesn't do anything, hell, it heals off more by switching than Meta could do to it. In return it can either 3hko w/ Fire Blast or just spam Scald until something is burned - regardless this is one massive uphill battle for poor Metagross.

Florges @ Leftovers
Trait: Flower Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 20 SpA / 236 SpD

- Moonblast
- Toxic
- Wish

With 20 SpA EVs, Florges can 2HKO Starmie with Moonblast, while Surf caps at 30.5% even with Life Orb and a Modest nature. Wish and Protect make sure Florges can win even if Starmie gets a critical hit.

Takes Florges down with Iron Head as soon as it gets sent out on the field. Rarely see this Pokémon being used around here, so I thought I should give it a go. :p

Something that a lotta people just got their hands on:

-Celebi w/Leftovers
Nature: Modest
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 220 HP, 252 Sp.Attack, 36 Speed
Moves: Psychic, Earth Power, Giga Drain, Nasty Plot


Can take a Bullet Seed or Mach Punch without a problem, and Rock Tomb just misses the 2HKO:
252+ Atk Choice Band Technician Breloom (No Move) vs. 220 HP / 0 Def Celebi: 162-191 (40.9 - 48.2%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery


If Bullet Seed, Mach Punch, or Thunder Punch is the move Breloom's locked into, Celebi outspeeds and OHKOs with Psychic. If Rock Tomb, Celebi can take 2 of those and then kill with Psychic.


btw, the calculator doesn't have Rock Tomb (which is why it says "No Move" instead of Rock Tomb in the above calc) in it for some reason, but I just made a 60 BP physical Rock attack in one of the slots, so that should suffice.

Salamence (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Hasty Nature
- Outrage
- Fire Blast
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake


Comes in, lowers Honchkrow's attack with Intimidate, then knocks it out with Outrage. Best Honchkrow could do is use Brave Bird, which would take two turns to KO Salamence.

252 Atk Choice Band Salamence Outrage vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Honchkrow: 510-600 (126.2 - 148.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

-1 252+ Atk Life Orb Honchkrow Brave Bird vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Salamence: 243-289 (73.4 - 87.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
-1 252+ Atk Life Orb Honchkrow Sucker Punch vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Salamence: 164-192 (49.5 - 58%) -- 98.4% chance to 2HKO

EDIT: nvm here's a better counter.

Skarmory @ Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 252HP / 232Def / 24Spe

- Spikes
- Stealth rock
- Roost
- Brave Bird

0 Atk Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Honchkrow: 181-214 (44.8 - 52.9%) -- 27.3% chance to 2HKO

252+ Atk Life Orb Honchkrow Sucker Punch vs. 252 HP / 232+ Def Skarmory: 105-125 (31.4 - 37.4%) -- 0% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery
252+ Atk Life Orb Honchkrow Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 232+ Def Skarmory: 78-92 (23.3 - 27.5%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery

Trait: Magnet Pull
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Substitute
- Flash Cannon
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Ice]

The lack of Whirlwind on Skarmory makes it impossible for it to escape from Magnezone's clutches. Magnezone can safely use Substitute and 2HKO with Thunderbolt.

0 Atk Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Magnezone: 24-28 (8.5 - 9.9%) -- possibly the worst move ever
252+ SpA Magnezone Thunderbolt vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Skarmory: 434-512 (129.9 - 153.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Moves: Thunderbolt, Heat Wave, Hidden Power Ice, Roost

Alright, came up with a solid Suicune counter this time, unlike my Charge Lanturn attempt. Scald's a 4HKO:

0 SpA Suicune Scald vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Zapdos: 87-103 (27 - 31.9%) -- guaranteed 4HKO

And since this Suicune lacks Sp.Defense investment and Calm Mind, Thunderbolt does massive damage to it.

- Rock Slide

252 SpA Life Orb Zapdos Heat Wave vs. 36 HP / 0 SpD Thick Fat Mamoswine: 200-237 (54 - 64%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252+ Atk Mamoswine Icicle Crash vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Zapdos: 350-414 (108.6 - 128.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ Atk Mamoswine Icicle Spear (3 hits) vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Zapdos: 312-378 (96.8 - 117.3%) -- approx. 93.8% chance to OHKO

Switches into Zapdos using Thunderbolt, and can easily OHKO back with either of the listed moves(would be very unlucky to not OHKO with Spear). Is even able to switch into a Heat Wave, tank it, and outspeed for the KO.

- Block
- Hidden Power [Fire]

Completely walls Magnezone. Shrugs off the pesky thunderbolt and also takes Flash Cannon and the Hidden Power pretty well. Block is to trap in Pokemon that attempt a switch and an Earthquake can easily OHKO or 2HKO a Magnezone after a single hidden power which should also do noticeable damage pops the air balloon.

Just saying, a Bold nature ruins Earthquake's power. You could've gone Relaxed, IMO.

Zygarde:

-Coil
-Earthquake
-Dragon Tail
-Substitute
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Zygarde shrugs off every hit Gastrodon throws at it, and uses it as setup bait for Coil.

Thanks for the tip! I just I could've done that, but because it was locked in with Block I could pretty much muck around with it and still kill it after two earthquakes since he couldn't do much to me. I didn't want to die from an unexpected critical hit or something like that.

Togekiss@Choice Scarf
252 SpA/252 HP/4 Speed
Serene Grace
- Air Slash
- Extremespeed
- Roost
- Dazzling Gleam

What can I say? This little fairy resists both dragon type moves and ground type moves, essentially forcing a switch. With Chocie Scarf however, Togekiss can out speed a non choiced Zygarde with little or no speed investment and proceed to Dazzling Gleam. Air Slash and Extremespeed can be used after Dazzling Gleam if it somehow dosent 0HKO, but that's pretty unlikely. The only thing it can do now is set up substitutes after substitutes, but eventually it'll be too weak. This set also renders Coil useless, as it leaves Zygarde with no attacking option.
