N brave item big root
Ev's Hp 12/ Attack 72/ Defense 252/ Sp.def 168
You should try for 8/16 HP instead of 12 so your HP number is odd.
Yeah seems like a nice ruse for opponents. As long as you run other slowpokes, Trick Room should be okay.
mixed reuniclus sounds nice but when put into practice, is overshadowed by most other sets. if this isn't working out for you as well as you'd expect, try the following:
Reuniclus @ Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpA
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball
- Trick Room
at the cost of dropping reflect, recovery, and any specific defensive investment, this hits a hell of a lot harder. magic guard also allows it to avoid life orb/hazard damage.
Reuniculus' Attack stat is barely half of what it's Special Attack Stat is, you should not be using physical moves with it. If you want recovery, use Leftovers.
Change it to Quiet nature, move the Attack EV's into Special Attack, and replace Drain Punch with Focus Blast.
That Drain Punch will be very weak, especially with a Big Root. It can't even 2HKO Blissey with it. A neutral Psyshock will always do more than a super effective +nature Drain Punch.
Better options for mixed Reuniclus are Explosion and Knock Off.
do you really think taunt is so wildly prevalent in the metagame? because it isn't. typical leads (ignoring the fact that reuniclus is much better suited for a CM sweeper in sand as opposed to a trick room lead) consist of pokemon like garchomp/landorus whose purpose is to either set hazards or pivot out - not taunt. this isn't dpp ou.
Reflect is pretty meh if you don't use light clay. I suggest changing it to recover and changing drain punch to focus blast. Also
Why? It's just a much much much worse magic guard.
Op here, thanks for the suggestions faggots. This is the new one.
