Shelmet




Abilities:
Shell Armor, Hydration, Overcoat

Stats:

HP: 50
Atk: 40
Def: 85
SpA: 40
SpD: 65
Spe: 25

Total: 305

Placed Tier: Not on the tier list, assuming little cup because it's not fully evolved, or NU.
Tier this set is meant for: OU

Type: Bug

Set #1: Eviolite Rain Rester

Item: Eviolite
Ability: Hydration
EVs: 252 HP, 88 Def, 168 SpDef
Nature: Sassy

- Rest
- Toxic
- Yawn
- Struggle Bug/Protect

Set Explanation: This set can Toxic an opponent, then stall them out very effectively with Rest (assuming rain). Whenever you use Rest, your HP is fully restored, then your sleep is cured by Hydration, making Shelmet ready to rest or do something else the next turn. Pretty much the same strategy as Recycle + Chesto Rest, but it only takes one turn. Yawn is to get deter steel and poison types that carry Toxic immunity. If they switch out, you can get a Toxic on their next Pokémon. If they stay in, they fall asleep and you can switch to an attacking Pokémon. I wasn't really sure what to put in the fourth slot — Struggle Bug provides something for you to do if you get Taunted, while Protect gives you more stall time. Struggle Bug can also cripple special attackers, so if you decide to use that, you may want to opt for a more physically defensive build.

Oh, that's right. Forgot that Drizzletoed is OU. I was using it in OU, but I figured that it would work in NU, because there would be fewer Pokémon that can wall it, namely, no Forretress, Skarmory, Heatran, Magnezone or Scizor. That's why Yawn is there, though, to force a switch or to cripple those that can't be poisoned. This set doesn't really work with Rain Dance, though, because 8 turns (with Damp Rock) isn't enough to really stall well. So I guess this set does belong in OU. Sorry I put it in the wrong spot.

No you put it in the right spot.
It's an NU pokemon, you're just using the set in OU

Oh, okay, good. It's a set for an NU Pokémon that only works on OU. There, that's a nice, summary. It does work quite well, though, it can wall like nobody's business.
