Physical Tank Scizor

Acrizor: Using a Scizor as a Physical Tank might seem alittle weird, but Scizor really stirs things up!ScizorLink: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=515

Basic Build: Scizor is a badass Physical Tank. White Herb makes it so resets lowered stats to normal at end of turn, but only once. Scizor’s Technician ability factors in quite nicely.

Summary: This build was designed quite nicely.  It’s a nice change for the common Choice Band + Technician + Priority Set that everyone’s come to expect lately. Thanks PokeReaper for submitting this hardcore build.

Mega Ranger Blaziken

Red Ranger: Physical Sweeper Blaziken is a still force to be reckoned with! Plus now with the addition of it’s new MEGA BLAZIKEN form you can unleash fiery flaming kicks of hell upon your enemies! BlazikenLink: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=54

Basic Build: Blaziken is a extremely awesome Physical Sweeper. In this build, the equipped Leftovers will allow Blaziken to recover it’s HP as the battle continues. However trade that in for it’s megastone and Blaziken’s power jumps exponentially. Blaziken’s Speed Boost ability factors in quite nicely – especially if you have it right at the start from dreamworld / event. This lets you hold onto your megaform until you are absolutely sure you need it.

Blaziken (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd /
Jolly Nature (+Spd , -SAtk)
– Swords Dance
– Hi Jump Kick
– Protect
– Flare Blitz

Basic Pokemon breeder knowledge should be enough to make this Blaziken. Blaziken belongs to the Field egg group. Check the link for full instructions.

Summary: This build is very impressive. Thank you kameroshiso for submitting this badass build while at the same time paying homage to the Mighty Morphing Legends of my childhood!

Mawile – Beauty That Bites

Beauty That Bites: A good Physical Sweeper is hard to find however with Generation 6 alot of Pokemon had the spotlight shone upon them once more! Despite having it’s head and hair confused for nearly every game, Mawile has always been a very pretty Pokemon to look at. Considering it’s new megaform in Pokemon XY, this seems like the perfect new addition to almost any team!MawileLink: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=508

Basic Build: Mawile is a amazing Physical Sweeper. The equipped Life Orb should help Mawile to do 30% more damage but it will take 10% of it’s max HP as damage each time it attacks (which for Mawile should be about 21-24 damage at level 100 in this build). Mawile’s Sheer Force trait factors in quite nicely. Althought the Megastone will be an even greater item in my opinion – otherwise this build is perfect for previous generations.

Mawile (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 28 HP / 252 Atk / 228 Spd /
Jolly Nature (+Spd , -SAtk)
– Swords Dance
– Iron Head
– Sucker Punch
– Ice Punch

Summary: This build was designed quite nicely. Thanks Triforce for submitting this great build.

Halloween Arceus

Phantom Arceus: Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than to add a Spooky version of the Deity Arceus to your team? Physical Sweepers come and go but no other Pokemon has surprised Uber quite like Arceus! ArceusLink: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=504

Basic Build: Arceus is a nasty Physical Sweeper. Spooky Plate makes it so increases the power of the holder’s ghost moves by 20%.
held by a multitype pokemon: holder’s type becomes ghost. Arceus’s Multitype trait factors in quite nicely.

Arceus @ Spooky Plate
Trait: Multitype
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd /
Adamant Nature (+Atk , -SAtk)
– Swords Dance
– Shadow Claw/Shadow Force
– Brick Break
– ExtremeSpeed

Breeding Instructions: http://www.hohoushome.com/breed.php?v=504
Since Arceus can’t breed, it’s Adamant nature must be obtained when it is first captured/obtained.

Summary: This build is very impressive. Thanks PsychoHail for submitting this scary halloween Arceus build.

Boltbeamer Starmie

Boltbeamer: In all of the OU-tier, Starmie is a force to be reckoned with! Quite a popular choice in Gen5 and above, and granted Fairys seem to have taken the spotlight against Dragons at the moment but Boltbeamers are still an important class to help deal with them and other common threats!StarmieLink: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=266

Basic Build: Starmie is a extremely awesome Special Sweeper. Using Life Orb will help Starmie to do 30% more damage but it will take 10% of it’s max HP as damage each time it attacks (which for Starmie should be about 24-27 damage at level 100 in this build). Starmie’s Natural Cure ability factors in quite nicely.

Starmie @ Life Orb
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 45 HP / 240 SAtk / 225 Spd /
Modest Nature (+SAtk , -Atk)
– Thunderbolt
– Ice Beam
– Psychic
– Scald

Summary: This build was designed quite nicely. Good coverage overall. Thanks FroakieMan for submitting this badass build.

Aggressive Fox

Intro: What does the fox say? they’ll never know until it’s too late!

Zoroark

Link: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=456

Basic Build: Zoroark’s Illusion ability continues aslong as he doesn’t get hit by the opponent. With this moveset, he can use substitute to exploit this and if needed use Night Daze to lower the opponent’s accuracy even more.

Zoroark (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Illusion
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd /
Timid Nature (+Spd , -Atk)
– Night Daze
– Flamethrower
– Focus Blast
– Substitute

Breeding Instructions: Breeding was pretty straight forward. Zoroark learns Night Daze around level 64 (BW2). The other moves are TM-learned.  http://www.hohoushome.com/breed.php?v=456

Summary: This build does take alittle getting used to but I used to hate Zoroark before I figured out how this worked. Just make sure you have a decent bait setup as your illusion. I prefer Water (to bait them out to a nice flammable grass-type) or a nice fighting-type (to attract psychic moves). Thanks RedSerperior for submitting this great build.

Choice Band Scizor

Intro: Imagine a priority attack that was quick, ruthless, and power packed to the extreme… It doesn’t normally exist yet, but can we create it? Let’s take a nice look at Scizor.

Scizor

Link: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=102

Basic Build: The concept here is pretty simple once you do all the math. It’s main move here is Bullet Punch (and to a lesser extent Pursuit when you can predict the switch). Bullet punch is a priority steel-typed move that packs base 40 damage whollup. Scizor being a Bug/Steel-type gains a nice STAB bonus by using it and an additional 1.5x boost thanks to it’s Technician ability. Combine that with Choice Band for another 1.5x and we just created a priority base 180 (40 x 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.5) smack to the face! Factor in the max attack EVs and destruction surrounds you.

Scizor (F) @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SDef /
Adamant Nature (+Atk , -SAtk)
– U-turn
– Bullet Punch
– Superpower
– Pursuit

Breeding Instructions: The hardest part about breeding this is heading over to the move tutor to teach it Superpower (which isn’t really that hard). By level 9, you can get this Scizor setup. EV-training and move acquisition instructions can be found here:  http://www.hohoushome.com/breed.php?v=102

Summary: Scizor’s other moves help fill in typing concerns but you really need to be aware of nasty fire-types which resist Steel attacks and do 4x damage to Scizor. This moveset isn’t flawless but it makes for a pretty nasty addition to any team. Thanks RedSerperior for submitting this great build.
