What gimmicky Pokemon do you use?

Critical Fun Gallade
-Psycho Cut
-Leaf Blade
-Night Slash
-Stone Edge/Close Combat
Item: Scope Lens

Credit for the name and set goes to Serebii, but I thought of this set as a 9 year-old playing Platinum :P
I know Close Combat doesnt have a heightened critical hit ratio, but sometimes I use it just for STAB, and it does get some criticals in occasionally.

Lulz, I had soooo much fun with this in Heartgold. I had no pokes who could use Surf in Mt. Silver except him, so it happened.

UU tier

Escavalier@Chesto Berry
Careful nature
Shell Armor
248 hp, 252 spdef, 8 atk
Megahorn
Iron Head
Iron Defense
Rest

While sacrificing stuff like pursuit, giving this guy a turn to set up can not only make him a dangerous tank, but also nab a couple of laughs. I remember walling an entire person's team with this set, forgot to copy the link though >_>


I was thinking of the same thing except on a Skarmory.


While Skarmory boasts a base 140 def and roost, that's pretty much it when comparing to Escavalier if you want a tank/wall

-Skarmory is OU, so if I used Escavalier in the same environment, he can get rain support like Scizor
-Escavalier has more special defense than Skarmory, while retaining a solid defense (-35 in def, for +35 in spdef)
-Shell Armor guarantees Escavalier won't be screwed over by a lucky crit (if you've used CM sets, you know what I'm talking about)
-RestoChesto is good for either bouncing back and taking an offensive, or to stall out weaker attackers (it puts a smile on your face when you turn a battle around)
-Escavalier has an attack stat equal to Scizor, giving him offensive presence as well (can 2HKO a 252/4 Blastoise with just 8 in atk)

Lead Shiftry in NU with a Focus Sash and:

Fake Out
Low Sweep
Seed Bomb
Explosion

Adamant nature, max attack and max speed EV's. It's pretty fun to Fake out, slow them, and then seed bomb/explode and while it's always fun to take out a jynx or whatever however it can be pretty useless sometimes and a waste of a pokemon so I'm replaying SS to get a Swords Dance/Sub/Sucker Punch Shiftry because finding an editor can be pretty hard.
