Well I’m still looking for TRU Darkrai. If you are reading this and feel like helping me out feel free to e-mail me. I’ll trade u well for it. Same goes for Gamestop Deoxys. Thanks =)


When I first discovered Gliscor it looked very offensive to me. But it is an excellent physical wall and a pretty decent baton passer. I like using sand veil with a sandstorm team, it works pretty well…


The movesets for today are…


Physical wall.
Nature: Impish (+ Defense, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 HP / 252 Defense / 6 Attack.
- Roost
- Stealth rock
- Earthquake
- Aerial ace


It doesn’t hit as hard as It should, but roost and stealth rock make a great combo, you just need to have some patience with this one and you’ll be ok. It works great with sand veil and sandstorm.

Baton passer.
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack), Jolly (+Speed, - Special attack).
EV’s: 252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 Defense.
- Swords Dance / Rock Polish
- Earthquake
- Aerial Ace / Ice Fang
- Baton pass

Pretty self-explanatory isn’t it? Sand veil works ok but your opponent might want to screw your attack boost via intimidate, so hyper cutter is a good and valid option for this set as well if you are going to use swords dance.



Gliscor is good in double battles and has proven to be a great counter for some tough Pokémon like Hippowdon because of sand veil, and if you manage to swords dance a couple times it will also become a pretty decent physical sweeper (you can also choose your favorite elemental fang for this).



Unfortunately ice and water attacks are on every team so you will have to be very careful. Its special defense isn’t that good so ice beam or surf will cause massive damage. Be careful of taunt users as well if you are battling with the baton passer.


Bottom line.

I’m sorry this review was a little short (at least for me). I’ve been terribly busy, but I keep writing this for you guys and girls, thanks for your support =)





Hope you enjoyed.
