Prankster Sableye, with taunt, wilo wisp and recover. It will stall all day long.

I like Liepard.

Swagger
Substitute
Encore
Foul Play

In B/W, people often used Taunt over Encore, but I always used Encore.

Nowadays, you can use Taunt over Substitute, since with Bug Buzz bypassing subs, and Liepard being dark type, it's probably better to sash it and hope for confuse hax on sweepers.

So, what would classify as an anti-anti-lead? A w/o set up and can benefit from a choice item?

Actually my favorite Anti-Lead pokemon is Espeon, it starts out with Magic bounce too, sooo many people Rage quit when they have their own spikes bounce back to their face its silly.

A certain Smogonite (who must not be named) used a Claydol back in Gen 4. Worked surprisingly well.

I used to always run this back in gen 4. Too much priority to really make the most of it though.

UtilityScarfSmeargle
Jolly / 252 Spe 252 atk or hp / Choice Scarf
- Spore
- Trick
- Lunar Dance
- Explosion / Momento

Spore the lead and come back to cripple something with trick or revive my own sweeper when it has been crippled. Explosion or Momento to help you set up for the next pkmn. It had some other move but cannot think of what it was. Stab Explosion bloody hurt too before the nerf

Fast things with Taunt work well as anti-leads. Things that can OHKO popular leads are good anti-leads, as well.


This is why I run a Noivern lead. Naive with Taunt/U-turn/Draco Meteor/Boomburst.

Been using it on Showdown, and I'm amazed how many people lead with a Greninja, only for me to outspeed it and OHKO it. And only once has someone had a focus sash.
