    Default Sudowoodo

    Sudowoodo

    Sudowoodo got quite a few boosts this geration. Sturdy is no longer a pointless ability and actually is good if used right rock head is good as in last generation and self conscious helps it sweep a bit. Sudowoodo’s stats are ok but is way to slow and its sp defense is lacking but its defense and attack are pretty good and it has decent moves. Overall is ok in lower tiers.

    HP: 70
    Attack: 100
    Defense: 115
    Sp. Attack: 30
    Sp. Defense: 65
    Speed: 30

    Rock Polish Sweeper
    Item: Life Orb
    Ability: Rock Head/Self Conscious
    Nature: Jolly
    Evs: 38 HP 252 Attack 220 Speed
    -rock polish
    -stone edge
    -earthquake
    -wood hammer/explosion

    What you do here is switch in as a wall and then as they switch you like rock polish up. It doubles it speed which makes it pretty good in lower tiers. I mean with the ev spread here it allows you to then out speed maximum speed base 100s which is pretty good. If you try to get hit by a move that boosts your self conscious then that’s boosted even higher. Stone edge is a good stab move and earthquake has a lot of coverage wood hammer is good for coverage even without rock head and explosion is an option for a last boom. The rest of the evs go to HP and then attack to sweep.

    Set Upper
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Sturdy
    Nature: Impish
    Evs: 220 HP 38 Attack 252 Defense
    -stealth rocks
    -stone edge
    -earthquake
    -toxic/explosion

    This set can perform as a lead or just as a regular set uppers in the mid game. Stealth rocks is the thing your setting up here and stone edge for stab and earthquake for coverage. Toxic is good for stalling and or throwing around status or if you wish for explosion for a big boom if stealth rocks is all you care about. The evs give you a leftovers number and then increase the defenses to wall. Impish just further increases the defense.

    If you ditch stealth rocks for wood hammer and sturdy for possibly rock head then this is your tank set. Which brings up the issue of which is better sturdy or rock head. Rock head only helps wood hammer but then again it REALLY helps wood hammer while sturdy can prevent a 1HKO but then again it has a bit of bulky already. Honestly whichever one you want.

    Choice Band Tank
    Item: Choice Band
    Ability: Sturdy/Rock Head
    Nature: Adamant
    Evs: 252 HP 252 Attack 6 Defense
    -stone edge
    -earthquake
    -wood hammer
    -explosion

    Switch into a normal hit then proceed to attack. Stone edge for stab and earthquake and wood hammer for coverage and finally explosion which is very powerful with choice band. Although it might not look like it this is Sudowoodo’s most reliable set. The evs maximize the HP to take that hit to switch in then attack to hit with choice band. Adamant also helps the attack to get even higher.

    Other Options:
    -if you want you can create a trick room Sudowoodo for lower tiers which then you need relaxed with 0 ivs in speed
    -flail can be used on a sturdy set if you have excellent prediction and is a good way to punish switch ins that go straight for the attack but its gimmicky
    -low kick is a good fighting move but generally things in lower tiers aren’t that heavy
    -sucker punch is actually a good option on most sets for priority but generally its just a tad to weak use it if you want though
    -hammer arm is ok as a fighting move but since it has a tad bit lowered accuracy it can be annoying to hit
    -double edge can be used on a rock head version but seeing as its only a normal move others are better
    -taunt is an option to stop things from setting up on your but Sudowoodo is to slow
    -sunny day can be used on a sunny day team
    -sandstorm is an option on lower tier sandstorm tiers and it helps the sp def too
    -brick break is yet another fighting move but even hammer arm is better with that low power
    -psych-up can steal boosts but is to gimmicky
    -one can run a curse set but at some point a special attack kill come in that’s always the problem
    -fake tears can annoy but outside of that its pointless
    -focus punch is actually quite a good option with substitute but generally other things are better for the job even in the lowest tiers
    -these is always the elemental punches but honestly just earthquake stone edge and wood hammer does all the coverage it needs but they are options for quadruple effectiveness like thunder punch for mantine ice punch for altaria and fire punch for forretress but that’s way to specified unless that’s like the only pokemon that can kill your team then maybe they are good

    Team Options:

    -Weak to special attacks a special wall is a good option
    -fodder for water and grass attacks herbivore and water absorb can be good synergy
    -need stealth rocks this is an option
    -if you have issues with flying normal or bug types this is a good team mate
    -weak to grounds a water or grass type is a good option

    Counters:
    -special sweepers
    -physical walls
    -ground types
    -bulky waters and grass types
