Armaldo- Member Review 348

Armaldo...has a 3x weakness in the rain? Sad Oh boy...but he has Swift Swim! Smile Lets use that Speed to beat that Weakness.

Armaldo (M) @Focus Sash
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
-Swords Dance
-Rock Blast
-Earthquake/Brick Break/X-Scissor/Rock Polish
This set is almost like the Rain Kabutops set. Focus Sash allows it to take a hit, allowing for the setup of Swords Dance. Swift Swim increases Speed. Waterfall gets a rain boost and has a Flinch rate! Rock Blast is STAB and can break subs. Earthquake is just plain awesome, Brick Break is coverage, and X-Scissor is STAB
Rock Polish is to increase your Speed further.

Armaldo (M) @Focus Sash
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
-Hone Claws
-Aqua Tail
-Stone Edge
-Crush Claw/Rock Polish
This set is based on accuracy. As like before, Focus Sash lets him take a hit, Swift Swim increases Speed. This time, Hone Claws allows a nice accuracy boost, allowing for lower accuracy moves to hit often. All 3 attacking moves have an accuracy lower than 100, so this is beneficial. Aqua Tail gets a boost from rain, Stone Edge is STAB, and Crush Claw is for a 50% chance to lower Defense. You can further your Speed with Rock Polish.

Armaldo (M) @Choice Band
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
-Stone Edge
-Brick Break/Superpower
Choice Band provides that Attack boost, now we go to sweep. Waterfall is boosted by rain, Stone Edge is STAB, and Earthquake and Brick Break/Superpower are coverage.

Armaldo (M) @Leftovers
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
-Stealth Rock
-Rapid Spin
-Rock Blast
This Armaldo supports. Setting up Stealth Rock, Rapid Spinning the entry hazards we have, poisoning, breaking Subs? EVs give it bulk, and Leftovers provide healing.

Overall, Armaldo is decent in the rain. It can support some, has Swift Swim, and has the potential to sweep using Focus Sash+Swords Dance Combo. Rock Polish further increases Speed.

Rating: 7.5/10
