Can an Assault Vest Roserade work?

Maybe with the following set...?

Natural Cure (or Technician if I get a good HP type, like fire or ground)
Calm @ Assault Vest
6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 SpD
- Giga Drain
- Sludge Bomb
- Shadow Ball / Dazzling Gleam
- Hidden Power / Dazzling Gleam

This is just an idea, I don't really have any idea what the numbers involved would be...

Invest in HP instead of SPD.

Why HP?

Lets it take physical hits better i guess, the current is better imo though

Why HP?


It helps withstand both Physical hits better, and will also withstand Special hits all the same, so it's the better option in my opinion.

Well, I just checked Ice Beam Greninja (with Life Orb) with the Showdown calculator, and going from SpD investment to HP investment makes that go from a 2HKO to a OHKO...

Probably not a good idea. Roserade isn't a tank and its main niche is to be a supporter, something it can't do with AV.

You forgot to account for the Assault Vest in the second calculation.

252 SpA Life Orb Protean Greninja Ice Beam vs. 4 HP / 252 SpD Assault Vest Roserade: 166-198 (63.3 - 75.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252 SpA Life Orb Protean Greninja Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Assault Vest Roserade: 211-250 (65.1 - 77.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
