Discuss: Slaking gets Defeatist

Yeah I forgot that Slaking has access to instant recovery.

So, is Defeatist Slaking more usable but not OP?

Slaking also gets Slack Off. Yeah, he'd jump up a few tiers with Defeatist.


Yea, I don't see how people are forgetting this, it's not like you wouldn't Slack Off at 50% anyways.

Oh, I forgot about that.

Yeah, give him Defeatist, GF!


I'm wondering what sort of set Defeatist Slaking would run. You'd probably go 252 ATK 252 Speed, because why not, Leftovers, protect to gain leftovers recovery if you go under 50%, Slack Off for the recovery, probably Double Edge for STAB 120BP damage, and probably Earthquake or Shadow Claw to hit Steels, Rocks and Ghosts that would resist or be immune to Double Edge.

I'm thinking

Slaking @ Leftovers
Ability: Defeatist
252 Atk, 252 HP, 4 Spe

Return
Slack Off/Protect
Earthquake
Hammer Arm

It'd work very well with Wish Support from something like Vaporeon

One would think Return would be the better STAB option since Double-Edge's recoil has terrible synergy with Defeatist.

Return would be good.

Another option would be Facade. Anyone trying to deal with Slaking with status would be in for a very nasty surprise.

Slaking with ANYTHING but Truant would be stupidly overpowered.


Why? Higher BSTs exist in OU (Kyurem-B). It would probably be Uber but hardly "stupidly overpowered".
