• Smash Camp 2020

    Smash Camp, an event that has run for twelve years, has started once again! Everyone who joins is separated into one of four cabins where you'll compete to earn points through various activities, such as flash games, tournaments, and other events. At the end of camp, the totals will be finalized, and the cabin with the most total points wins. It's an awesome way to have fun with your friends while meeting new people in the process, and is open to anyone, not just members of the Marriland Forums!

    Pre-Camp has officially started, with Camp itself beginning on Monday. It will be taking place exclusively on the Smash Camp Discord, which you may join by clicking here. If you have any questions, feel free to join the server and ask - we hope to see you there!

Heatran @ Firium Z
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 16 HP / 216 SpA / 24 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Magma Storm
- Earth Power
- Stealth Rock
- Taunt

The reason Heatran can afford to go Modest over Timid on this set is that this set appreciates the extra power and most Heatran checks run at least enough speed to creep timid anyway. You only lose about 25 speed that means the key threats you lose the speed war to are Rain Sweepers without rain, Mega-Tyranitar, Max Speed Mega-Scizor, Max Speed Tapu Bulu, and stuff with decent speed like Mew and Tapu Fini running a slower set to get more bulk.

Let's go with trappers.

Uxie creates an environment for sweepers to flourish in Trick Room with this set.

Ugh, that ****ty item. I hate it more than Ass Vest.

Aegislash @ Weakness Policy
Abilty: Stance change
EVs: 4 Def, 252 SpA, 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Automize
- Shadow Ball
- Flash Cannon
- Hidden Power Ice

This was just one painful set that Aegislash could run. It could soak a hit from your counter, use it to make itself stronger, then annihilate you. One of few good users of the time and this was mainly a lure/niche set.

Let's go with +2 Speed Boosting Moves.

Show me a Pokémon that performs well under Trick Room conditions (doesn’t necessarily have to have the move, but it must be one that typically functions on TR teams).
