    Default Slowbro

    Slowbro

    Water / Psychic
    HP: 95
    Attack: 75
    Defense: 110
    Special Attack: 100
    Special Defense: 80
    Speed: 30
    Oblivious / Own Tempo / Regenerator

    Overview

    -amazing physical tank
    -good special attack pair with a huge movepool
    -regenerator makes it godly as it heals by just switching
    -sloooooobrooooo, seriously slow, but it at least speed ties Amoonguss and Forretress and beats Ferrothorn
    -does little for team support unfortunately, used primarily as a tank
    -suffers a weakness to one of the most common pokemon, scizor

    Slowbro @ Leftovers
    Trait: Regenerator
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SAtk
    Bold Nature
    - Scald
    - Ice Beam
    - Psychic
    - Slack Off

    -physical tank, goal, take a hit then another or a boosted hit, and KO in return it is very effective at this easily beating out Salamence, Dragonite, Terrakion, Conkeldurr, Landorus-T, Landorus, Gliscor, Cloyster, Mamoswine, Metagross, Lucario and more
    -scald is an obligatory stab the burns which is amazing and worth the power drop
    -ice beam allows it to outright KO dragons and double weak grounds
    -psychic is useful for killing Conkeldurr, Toxicroak, Gyarados, and Terrakion, Cloyster
    -slack offers extra recovery when you can't heal by switching or just need it

    -evs maximize defenses to take those physical hits better
    -one can add more special attack to KO some more threats, somewhere around 120 special attack guarantees a 2HKO on Terrakion with psychic in the sand
    -if one already has something else for a threat, ice beam and psychic can be ditched
    -slack off is actually drop able if you have the guts to because of regenerator
    -such moves that can be used include toxic, flamethrower, fire blast, and thunderwave all of which have their merits
    -as mentioned, slowbro can not take on Tyranitar and Scizor, so a pokemon for that is nessesary
    -slowbro pairs very well with Amoonguss to form the famous Amoonbro core that takes on most physical attackers outside of Scizor
    -a rock resist to is also suggested as slowbro can have issues with Terrakion at times, Jirachi, Hippowdon, Hitmontop, or Donphan are all options
    -rocks support is suggest as it may need to to kill off more offensive versions of Dragonite with otherwise multiscale intact, also useful for metal herb cloysters

    Other Options
    -surf is an option, but the lose of burn hax is rarely worth it
    -psyshock always grantees a 2HKO on Terrakion, but losing to conkeldurr isn't worth it
    -a specialized hidden power can always work, HP electric allows for it to take on Gyarados more effectively, even though it has good chances to kill it via psychic or scald burns
    -screens support is an option
    -grass knot I guess
    -trick room
    -calm mind for lol
    -hail or sunny day

    Checks and Counters
    -reuniclus
    -celebi, Chanse, Blissey, Gastrodon, Starmie, Vaporeon, Jellicent, Alakazam, and Ninetails can come in for free not even fearing status
    -if not fearing burns, Ferrothorn, Latias, Politoed, Rotom-W, Abomasnow and Mew can work
    -Scizor, Tyranitar, Virizion, Venusaur, Tornadus-T, Breloom, Jolteon, and Hydregion can all check

    mention its fuckton of major physical and special weaknesses that make it a chore to use in OU beyond just scizor!

    in fact, its weak to scizor, all the grass types in OU, all the dark types in OU, all the electric types in OU, and it just cant do anything to vaporeon who can toxic in in the fucking face
