Theoretical Eeveelution team creation challenge


Recommended Posts

The Eeveelutions are a mixed bag. Despite the fact that they all have respectable stat totals, and span a range of the type spectrum, a team consisting of 6 of them wouldn't do too well up in the competitive battling scene.

But theoretically, with better move pools and abilities, could you make an OU standard team? without going OP of course...

Gimme your ideas. (I know that there would be little purpose in making such a team even if you could because it would be illegal/hacked, but just as a mental exercise maybe this would be interesting?)

my few thoughts so far are as follows:

Vaporeon for example would need little or no adjustment from the usual:





(a new ability such as Regenerator, might be too much on an already very usable poke)

Where as Umbreon could use suckerpunch, or instead, give it the ability huge power and its stats are suddenly very similar to Tyranitar's. it would then need a moveset to reflect this bulky offensive disposition and to give it some coverage. eg

adamant, life orb/choice band



ice or fighting move

blaze kick/flare blitz/sacred fire? - to deal with steels and bugs and, more importantly steel-bugs (scizor genesect), who resist and eat dark types.

Leafeon, how about a moxie, dragon dance, baton passer?

or go another route, to compete with other grass types and give it a more competative stalling movepool, maybe multiscale too.

I haven't gotten very far in the thought process yet, but I'd love to see some balanced looking teams. or just some ideas :smile:
