YES GUYS. GUESS WHAT. ANOTHER GEN V RMT THREAD. JUST BECAUSE I WANT TO BORE Y'ALL TO DEATH
Well, not really.I need help. And suggestions. And whatnots.
Also, prepare for stupid nicknames.
Goran the Ninjask (Chinese Electric Batman *nudge*)
4HP/252Atk/252Spe/Jolly/Choice Band/Speed Boost
Standard lead Ninjask. I have no reason to justify its use other than "It might work".
Galvatron the Galvantula
Standard (?) Compoundeyes-abuse Galvantula. It's generic. It's lovable. It's hate-able too, depending on your position and the RNG.
Screamed At the Spiritomb
One-stop tanker for all your problems with ghosts, jerk jocks and fake psychics. Is itself a ghost. Yes, the EV spread is intentional. Too bad Spiritombs can't learn Cosmic Power.
'Rant the Durant
Ants are weak? Pfft. Say that to 'Rant. He killed a freaking bell for breakfast (seriously, he managed to kill a Bronzong in two hits and evaded all Hypnosis attempts). He's just that awesome.
Byproduct the Klinklang
Make no mistake. Byproduct's goofy expression is only a cover for his sociopathic tendencies. He will first zap you, ominously shift his gears and then grind you with them. Slowly. Until you're dead of asphyxiation.
Pudding the Swellow
Combat sadomasochist with toxicophile (and somtimes pyromaniacal) tendencies. Need I say more?
So yeah. Feel free to critic my stupidity. Mr. Pinky out.
That's not the standard Ninjask set; this is the one:
EVs: 176 HP/252 Atk/80 Spe
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost
Agility is overkill on something as fast as Galvantula. I'd have Hidden Power (Ice) over that to give it more coverage.
Shadow Ball and Dark Pulse are redundant. Spiritomb is better with:
-Shadow Ball/Dark Pulse
-Hiddden Power (Fighting)/Sleep Talk
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Durant hits even harder if it has Hustle:
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Honestly, Klinklang isn't very good, and you have no reliable way of dealing with Steels, so Cobalion is the best replacement:
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
On Ninjask: Well, I made its set with something like this in mind:
Lead -> Safe to attack? -> If yes, use appropriate attack -> If not, U-turn
I'll take the set into consideration if this one sucked. Thanks.
On Galvantula: You are my savior here
On Spiritomb: I have no earlier experience on using Spiritomb. So I'll take the set for consideration. I also thought that Shadow Ball + Dark Pulse is overkill too, but I ave no idea what to use. Guess Hidden power just never passed my thought.
On Durant: Tried Hone Claws before. Never really liked it. That is, until you said Hustle. Will try it later.
On Klinklang: Nobody really loved the gears with their horribad movepool I guess. Cobalion would be lovely. Thanks for the suggestions.
