Mischievous Eyes : Meowstic has to be one of my all time favorite of the new annoyers which I’m pretty sure surprised alot of people! While the female’s movepool is catered more to being aggressive and offensive, the male’s movepool is perfectly setup for support and general annoying. 😀 Link: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=662
Basic Build: Meowstic makes a strong Double Wall. Using Leftovers should help Meowstic to recover it’s HP as the battle goes on. Meowstic’s Prankster ability factors in quite nicely giving priority to everything in this moveset. It works on the classic paralyz + confusion strategy. Confusion cuts the opponent’s ability to actually attack by 50% (and inflict damage to itself), while Parlyz factors in an additional 30% for a grand total of 80% chance your opponent wont be able to attack. What about that additional margin of attacking? Aside from it’s max defenses you’ve got a substitute to help control the hits (which with the help of leftovers can be created over and over to last for ages). Not to mention protect which only adds insult to injury as your opponent slowly whittles away at their own health… all I can say is LOL.
Meowstic @ Leftovers
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef /
Bold Nature (+Def , -Atk)
– Thunder Wave

To breed this Meowstic in your game is going to take alittle work but luckily all of it’s moves are TMs in Pokemon X and Y. Meowstic belongs to the Field egg group. Check the link for full instructions.
Summary: This build offers a nice change to the standard annoyers you might find nowadays (Klefki being the main new badboy). Thank you Wisdom for submitting this clever and irritating build.

Idiot: Tho we arn’t too fond of the name, this Espeon build quickly caught our attention. Special Sweepers come and go but Espeon has been stirring things up for a good while in previous generations (especially since the release of it’s Magic-Bounce ability). This build has the potential to really bring it back for the new generation’s meta.Link: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=648
Basic Build: Espeon is a strong Special Sweeper. Using Leftovers should help Espeon to recover it’s HP as the battle goes on. Hidden Power Flying will help Espeon deal with bug types that might try something (mainly Scizor, Heracross, and Pinsir are the biggest contestants). Dazzling Gleam is a popular fairy-type move that helps deal with primarily with popular Dark and Dragon -types. Espeon’s Magic-Bounce trait factors in quite nicely to reflect any status attempts used on it. Stored Power is an amazing STAB move (Same type attack bonus) that combos perfectly with Calm Mind to increase the amount of damage it does. Calm Mind increases both it’s Special Attack and Special Defense. After about (20 base x 2 stats x 6 possible increases) Espeon’s Stored Power becomes a whopping base 240 attack… and thats without calculating the STAB boost!
Espeon (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Magic Bounce
EVs: 16 HP / 252 SAtk / 240 Spd /
Modest Nature (+SAtk , -Atk)
– Calm Mind
– Stored Power
– Dazzling Gleam
– Hidden Power[Flying]

The hardest part about breeding this Pokemon into your game is getting the exact IVs needed for it’s hidden power to be Fighting.Espeon belongs to the Field egg group. Check the link for full instructions.
Summary: This build redefines the word ‘idiot proof’ (which we think would have been a better name). Thank you Bao2933 for submitting this amazing build.
So I recently discovered Pokemon in XY can be cloned now using 2 different methods. One that needs the help of another friend, and another solo method as well. Check the videos for the tutorial!
Gjenganger: A good Special Sweeper is hard to find however, Gengar has always been a nasty team member since it’s appearance back in Red/Blue (or Red/Green depending where you’re from)! It’s new mega form in gen6 is proving to be quite versatile with abunch of hazards for the newly popular competitive Pokemon in OU. Link: http://www.hohoushome.com/build.php?v=530
Basic Build: Gengar is a strong Special Sweeper. Gengarite increases it’s Special attack and Speed makes Gengar an even more powerful threat. it’s ability becomes shadow tag which prevents frightened foes from being unable to escape quite nicely. Thunderbolt gives nice coverage against bulky water types tho personally if it was me, I think I would prefer Protect better to keep it safe during it’s megavolution and as an added bonus poison fodder when your opponent gets poisoned from Sludge Bomb!
Gengar (F) @ Gengarite
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd /
Timid Nature (+Spd , -Atk)
– Shadow Ball
– Focus Blast
– Sludge Bomb
– Thunderbolt / Protect

This Gengar (like most Pokemon movesets) will require abit of breeding Gengar belongs to the Amorphous egg group. Check the link for full instructions.
Summary: This build shows off what a Gengar can really do. Thanks PsychoHail for submitting this sexy build.
This is by far the easiest way to get Perfect / Flawless Pokemon with exactly the IVs you need without spending all day trying to breed one out!!!!
Acrizor: Using a Scizor as a Physical Tank might seem alittle weird, but Scizor really stirs things up!Link: 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.
Scizor (F) @ White Herb
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def / 4 SDef /
Adamant Nature (+Atk , -SAtk)
– Bug Bite
– Bullet Punch
Breeding Instructions: http://www.hohoushome.com/breed.php?v=515
Breeding this Scizor shouldn’t be too bad. Scizor belongs to the Bug egg group. Check the link for full instructions.
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.
Apparently some Japanese players discovered that the IVs of the egg in the breeding center are determined BEFORE the parents are even deposited in the Day-Care. Sounds pretty crazy, but it seems to work! (This would explain some of the glitches I was having during my egg breeding).
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! Link: 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
– 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!
