Can anyone help me with this defensive Spongebob @ Squeaky Boots set?
How many EVs should I put into Sp.def to survive a Mr. Crabs Fry pot?
Prefer running a Mr. Crabs @lucky dime
completely wrecks walls.
You guys think the primals are gonna get banned from the banlist? I mean nothing but niche lower tier trash stops them.
Pft, Spongebob's Shell forme walls even the mighty Sailor type!
>they released HA Illusion Spongebob
>It's Japan only
Spongebob @Squeaky Boots
That is what I am running now. Full inventment allows you to tank at least one Fry Pot. Irritating laughter is a OKHO on fully defensive Clarinet Squidward, and Karate Chop can 2HKO Sandy wearing an Air Helmet OR a Squirrel Bikini. You have to watch out for Plankton and Mega Plankton though, you aren't defensive enough to take a Chum Bucket or a Cycloptic Gaze. This set doesn't deal with Patrick well either; you can't take a super effective Brown Starfish.
Mega Mr. Krabs works pretty well as a teammate.
Oblivious Patrick is a good counter-all for most situations and has very good attack and defence but the speed leaves much to be desired as well as the inevitable confusion
Mr. Krabs is countered easily by a Pearl wearing a Fashion Scarf. My Pearl looks like this:
Pearl @ Fashion Scarf
Mr Krabs is 4x weak to a Pearl Paternity Test, so that takes care of that. The problem with running Pearl is that you get COMPLETELY shut down by Muscle Band Larry or even Mega Larry.
As for Mega Plankton, his Evil typing is pretty amazing, but if you tweak the Spongebob set and teach him Formula Guard, you should have good enough coverage to take down Mega-Plankton.
Another thing you can consider is the fact that Mrs. Puff can take down Spongebob with a priority Detention, so you have to have something to switch in on that. Patrick's Empty Skull ability makes him immune to all Driving type attacks.
Hope that helps anon!
Can we agree that Mega Patrick is broken as shit? Completey OHKO's my Robot Crabs @ Ravioli even with defence EV's.
Metal krabs is stronger than both of those even without the lucky penny. It works even better with spongebob. They can also both use meatball chant which isn't so easy to prepare for.
Yeah, but all you have to do is invest in her Karate (which you should be doing anyway) and she can tank at least 3 hits, enough for her to get rid of the Texas user (especially given there's only three in the current meta, and neither of them can take a hit). Though, you could get the Texas users to restrict funding for sandy, but then you lose a move slot just to counter one mon
I think the true unnoticed front runner here has to be Hash Slinging Slasher.
I've completely wrecked Spongebob @Squeaky Boots AND Squidward @Clarinet with this simple set:
Hash Slinging Slasher @Rusty Spatula
252 Atk/ 4 Sp D/ 252 Spe
Yeah but Mega Spongebob totally wrecks his shit with the move "Pants rip", and his speed stat is devastating so Patrick can't do shit until Spongebob defeats him.
>Not using Reef Blower Bob
Bob @ Reef Blower
Hurricane (perf accuracy thanks to blower)
timid nature, 252 speed 252 sp.attack
>not running Squidward @ Clarinet 252 SpA/252 Spe/4 HP
Great special attacker. Too bad he's somewhat brittle. His Annoying Music is great, but won't do shit unless you can get the hit off first.
All you guys need to run Squidward's Sand forme, really boosts his defenses and attack but his speed becomes really low.
Why run Squidward at all when Squilliam does everything Squidward can do, but better?
Pair him with Mega Sandy, she counters and 1 shots MegaBob and MegaPatric with Texan Revenge
This thread is disgusting and you should all be ashamed of yourselves.
Just play NU, it's where most of the creative sets are showcased anyway
Is strongman larry still a viable build in this gen? I know he used to be awesome.
Is Mrs Puff a good Trick Room setter? I've been thinking to pair him with Gary in doubles
You're better off using Bob with Sandy and have her set up the Tree Dome for a decent sweep chance late game
So I know Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen was number 1 back in season III, but how does he hold up in the current meta? I fell out of the competitive scene like halfway into season IV.
Also how does my bro Bubble Buddy hold up?
I want to stab
maleM.rs Pu.ff with a knife cause it's just so miserable it knows it's inferior to the perfect glory that is female Mr.s Puf.f .
Game freak needs to hotfix this. There is no such thing as a male Mrs Pu.ff. I mean just look at her femininity.
How the hell do you counter Alaskan Bull Worm?
Why the fuck hasn't Nematodes been banned yet? If they get set up you're basically screwed.
So I heard Smogon is Suspect Testing Man Ray. I personally only really find him OP when he has the kids meal as the held item.
Why isn't King Jellyfish banned. He can literally OHKO or 2HKO pretty much most of the metagame with STAB Thunderbolt and Hydropump. I can't hit it with earthquake because of levitate and grass types get fucked by sludge bomb. Seriously, fuck this guy.
Here is your counter.
Resist Hydro, Tbolt, and Sludge and OHKOs back with Hyper Nature Fusion Strike of the Gods.
Five days of Hillenburg-Methoding later I finally hatched a shiny. Dubs names him.
God, these new designs are horrible.
Gens 1-3 were the best, and anyone who disagrees can go fuck themselves.
What the hell were they thinking? Bubble wand is a broken as fuck item.
>B b b but only spongebob and Patrick learn bubble block
It's still broken. Granted, it's only a half stat bubble buddy, but the wand gives bubble moves; ALL bubble moves, +1 priority. You sit behind a bubble shield and get one annoying laugh off? Your opponent's squidward is done for. Even plankton can't take 2 hits after that.
Why did no one mention using Plankton @ Chum?
I mean, it's the perfect item for him, and with it he destroys. They only thing that could counter him is Pearl @ Coral Salad
And NOBODY runs that setup.
Seriously, guys, why hasn't doodlebob been banned already? If it holds Pencil it is even more broken than Lati@s with Soul Dew. And have you seen its movepool? It literally can erase anything from existence.
That's a weird name for a Spongemon
Guys, how is Dennis is holding up these days? Now that Cyclops is Ubers, can Dennis sweep through teams with Spiky Boots?
>Access to a multitude of Electric Moves
>Shift Gear>MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE
Were you really expecting any more good designs after they completely fucked up Mega Squidward?
Outclassed by MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE Plankton @ Krabby Patty.
