SUMMARY

This thread got some action from a couple of members on the previous incarnation of PsyPoke, and I absolutely loved it, so I'm bringing it back!

The idea is simple. Take Pokemon that are overused, underused, or whatever, and give them a set that is, for the most part, nonstandard. For example, take this standard set for Houndoom.

{houndoom} @ Leftovers | Flash Fire | Modest Nature
Sunny Day - Solarbeam - Flamethrower - Crunch
EVs: 252 Speed, 252 Special Attack, 6 HP


Simple strategy, really, use Sunny Day and Flash Fire to get great damage from Flamethrower, all the while using Solarbeam to cover your weaknesses. Crunch gets STAB, and the rest is history. This type of strategy is very, very, very OVERUSED. Hence, this new Houndoom, using more strategy, and, like the thread title suggests, a little creativity.

{houndoom} Female @ Chesto Berry | Early Bird | Bold Nature
Sunny Day - Fire Spin - Toxic/Will-O-Wisp - Rest
EVs: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special Defense


This Houndoom is designed to Trap the foe with Fire Spin then either Burn or Poison them to death with Will-O-Wisp or Toxic. Sunny Day to increase Fire Spin's power and reduce Water's strength, and Rest to do it all over again. The EVs are arranged to make Houndoom last longer in battle.

I encourage everyone to join in and come up with cool sets. If one is deemed strategic and creative enough, then it shall be added to The List. And of course, we encourage you to try these Pokemon in your own GBA and battlebot teams. Let us know how they work out!

*Note: Most of the older HoF entries were created with different standards than they are now. Therefore, they may no longer be considered creative or work as well in today's metagame. There is no need for correcting every miniscule detail about them, but if you find something totally wrong with one, feel free to post.
