    Default Duskull

    Duskull

    Your know this is going to be a crazy generation when of all pokemon Duskull is nudging in for UU status. How? As always evolution stone. No only did dusk clops get a huge boost being actually better then its evolution in every way besides offensive tanking but its little brother got some pretty nice boosts too. Duskull has some pretty sweet defenses and a nice move pool including night shade which actually allows it to do some damage unlike its other NFE brethren with evolution stone attached. Its probably not the best spin blocker in UU but its certainly noteworthy. In RU is a beast although it will never complete fill the void dusclops left but its ok.

    HP: 20
    Attack: 40
    Defense: 90
    Sp Attack: 30
    Sp. Defense: 90
    Speed: 25

    Defensive Tank and Spin Blocker
    Item: Evolution Stone
    Ability: Levitate
    Nature: Impish
    Evs: 252 HP 252 Defense 6 Sp. Defense
    -night shade
    -willow-wisp
    -pain split
    -toxic

    It might only have one set but itís a good one. Set up stealth rocks and switch in this dude. No getting rid of stealth rocks or spikes for them suckers ha ha ha. Ghost is great defensive typing taking taking normals and fighting moves like a champ and then levitate is just icing on the cake talking any earthquakes. Night shade is is great fixed damage move which is duskullís biggest selling point always hitting at 100 damage. Willow-wisp is great to spread around burn which is great for duskull allowing you to take physical hits even better. Pain slit is great recovery which works good with duskullís super low HP. Toxic is a final set up move just incase you know a fire type pops up or even you plan on having a stall war with something. The evs mazimize dudeís defenses and HP to take physical hits like a champ as with impish which just further increases the defense. Evolution stone is the only reason you can use this thing at all so you need it for the defense boost.

    Other Options:
    -the only big option here is rest/sleep talk to take status hits and real them up but generally itís a poor option since your only going to be sleep talking willow-wisp and night shade
    -disable now have 100% now accuracy and is actually quite useful consider it over toxic
    -confuse ray confused but even disable is better
    -shadow sneak is the only attack move you should ever consider for priority to pick off sturdy pokemon but thatís rather situational
    -mean look traps things to possibly toxic stall then and stuff but its gimmicky
    -taunt shuts down other walls if you wish
    -duskull can set up lots of things sunny day rain dance trick room and gravity although duskull benefits from none of these
    -torment and embargo can be used to shut down stuff but honestly taunt is much better
    -substitute can be used if you predict sucker punch
    -destiny bond can make things warry to attack you and maybe force a switch but since duskull isnít fast it canít be used for a surprise kill unless your on a trick room team and besides its illegal with pain split

    Team Options:
    -teams that like entry hazards up need this guy to block spinners
    -if you need a physical wall up this is you man it makes great partners with special walls
    -weak to ghost and dark attacks it likes steel types or even a normal type as a bud
    -it takes any fighting and ground hits to again steel types make good friends
    -shut down by status it likes status absorbers or clerics clerics are also great to wish pass to that pityfull HP

    Counters:
    -ghost types with any special attacks own with thing
    -status absorbers
    -special sweepers

    Why would you invest EV's into HP when you have Pain Split

    Your format sucks but who am I to judge.

    UU based on NFE status.

    you want as much damage as possible from that amazing recovery move

    Pants if you invest in HP it gets like 3 times more bulkly

    its just like Dusclops of Dusknoir you have to invest in HP becuase its so shitty if not for the sake of pain split you will die a fuck not sooner

    full defs vs. hp and split defs or hp and 1 def

    hmmm

    and the fact that pain split takes a WHOLE lot more off, and completely refills health.

    i'd say its a better way to go.

    150 HP is still enough to take 1/2 extra hits with fulls defs up, and pain split takes it all back. plus you could trick room it! it becomes a powerhouse

    LOL the joke is that kirby obviously doesn't understand how pain splitter's are more effective with less HP in lv 100 competitive battling and that shuckle is mediocre and cant function in OU, when it most certainly can! GET IT

    Duskull's HP is so bad pants that if you don't invest there its going to die off way to soon. And besides its not like it changes the painsplit that much.
