My brother's favorite pokemon. This crow, undoubtably, has some nice factors that can be overlooked.

+ Absorbs Sleep
+ Absorbs Psychic
+ EQ Immune
+ Useful Movepool
+ Unpredictable

- No Good Dark STAB
- Low HP and Defenses

This guy can't do much in OU by itself, however with decent support it can be quite powerful.

85 in both attacking stats is above the average. 91 base speed makes it faster than base 90 pokemon with max speed(neutral nature).

Timid: 252 Spd, 252 Sp.Atk, 6 HP
Calm Mind
Faint Attack
HP Special

Basically, throw into a EQ and sub on their switch. Calm Mind then attack. Its effectiveness depends on the HP you pick.

Murkrow@Choice Band
Adamant: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 6 HP
Drill Peck
Shadow Ball
Hidden Power [Fighting]

My brother and I like this set because no one expects it. Use it with Magneton to kill off Skarm and Forrey. Haze is there because this thing can't do anything else.

Jolly: EVs in Speed, Def, Hp, and Sp.Def
Whirlwind / Featherdance / Perish Song
Shadow Ball / Drill Peck
Thunder Wave / Psych Up / Protect
Taunt / Mean Look / Substitute

The "Annoyer/Phaze/perishtrap" Krow. This guy is the most wild. Perish Trapping isn't advised due to the whole defense issue. It can annoy the sin out of a few pokemon and force switches, which help with spikes. Whirlwind isn't advised because the bird has zero defenses. Psych Up a Ninjask, then phaze it away for some cruelty. I'm sure you can make something here.


This pokemon does well on a team with a Spiker and/or Magneton/Dugtrio depending on the moveset you pick. Keep some bulky sponges as well as this guy will need to be switched out often for it to last an entire battle.

I use Thunder Wave on my CB Krow. It also pretty much needs Jolly at all times.
