Mega Mawile Competitive Mumbo Jumbo

#1EmpirorPosted 8/18/2013 10:24:52 AM
So, I've been thinking about Mega Mawile for a bit and I came up with this set.

Physical Revenge Killer Mawile

Item: MegaStone

Ability: Intimidate (Huge Power)

Nature: Adamant

Evs: 252 Hp/252 Attack/4 Def

Moves: Sucker Punch, Iron Head/potential Fairy physical attack, Fire Fang, Thunder Punch/Ice Punch

As a revenge killer, Mawile can take advantage of having Intimidate without risking taking any damage on entry aside from hazards. It can then Mega Evolve into Mega Mawile, boosting its Defensive stats and Attack so that it has a better shot at killing the opponent. With Intimidate AND a boosted defense stat, MegaMawile could have a field day revenge killing a lot of physical threats (though I could imagine bulkier pokemon could be problematic.) Additionally, having access to an already decent attack stat before Mega Evolving and Sucker Punch allows Mawile to pick off some weakened threats WITHOUT mega evolving (meaning that it could continue to abuse Intimidate on entry later.

This + Trick Room Support/Wish Support= uuuuurggggghhhhh >_<

That set seems very likely to be MegaBlaze set up fodder even with intimidate

It's going to be funny when Mawile (and most of the "megamons") get KO'd before they can even say "mega."

The bulkier stuffs do make mawile sad yes

Mega Mawile is pretty much set up fodder on Mega Blaze in general

MegaMawile will likely need loads of support to sweep effectively. As of now, we know that its STABs are walled by fire types, probably Steel types and several others. Most of its coverage moves being Dark type or rather weak(E-punches and fangs) doesn't help. Unless it's bulky enough to survive Magnezone's moves and OHKO back(IF it can), it's Maggy bait.

Of course all that are assumptions, since we don't know

a. how powerful Huge Power Mawile will be
b. how bulky it will be after the mega boost

Trick Room support and maybe even bringing it in through Memento/Parting Remark is how I'd bring it into play once everything's dealt with, but the real work needs to be done before that.

it's kinda pointless to prepare sets when there's so much we don't know yet..

Then there's still Infernape and other Fire types that could potentially setup in the face of resisted double STAB. Huge Power may or may not power through them. We can't know that yet.
