Has anyone tried out a Mega Mewtwo Y set with Rest?

What I propose is that, theoretically, a set with Calm Mind, two coverage moves and Rest could be used.

The main strategy would be to try and set up, take some damage, rest it off then Mega Evolve and have it immediately wake up and wreak havoc.

It's like a ChestoBerry set, only you can't use Knock Off the item to get rid of it.

Then again, it'd probably be too slow for the Ubers metagame.

Doesn't Insomnia stop you using Rest in the first place?

EDIT: Skipped part of the OP, didn't see using Rest THEN MEvoing. Should work, but may have coverage trouble with only 2 attacks.

The idea is that Mewtwo uses Rest before Mega Evolving. Once it Mega Evolves and gains Insomnia, it'll wake up instantly.

Not "this."

He has right, read his post again. Mewtwo can use rest to set up, when he mega evloves he wakes up due ability!

The coverage moves would be the hardest to decide.

Psystrike is almost a definite plus, but whether to run something like Aura Sphere or Flamethrower for me would be tough.

Then again, it could also be easily walled.
