#1fuzzyjediPosted 6/18/2009 4:36:58 PM
So im running a physical sweeper toxicroak on my rain dance team. Smogon recomends an adamant nature for him, but i want to run jolly for speed. I was thinking of giving him life orb because he would heal in the rain. What do u guys think?

Toxicroak@ life orb
dry skin/jolly
252 atk 252 speed
moveset:
poison jab
sucker punch
brick break

Toxicroak has an added benefit of not being killed if the enemy has a swift swimmer.

I've used a set like this before, it works well. As for coverage in a rain team though, scizor is beast. In rain he has just about no weaknesses. (rain halves fire damage, so that pretty much stops his biggest fear)

Oh, well you never said that. You could use a sub punching poliwrath. Or better yet have something that isn't even related to the rain to add grass coverage. Hitmonchan is an epic revenge killer if he's scarfed. (and his ice punch would be boosted with his special ability)

thats why i went for toxicroak, cause he isnt really linked to the rain dance and poison jab provides grass coverage. I dont really like sub punchers so i left out poliwrath
