Well, we're gonna have both of the fossils done! *Feels satisfied
Archeops is an awasome pokemon. Screw his lower tier ranking. I still use him in OU.
Let's see what awaits us............


Archeops (M) @ Flying Gem

Trait: Defeatist

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

- Acrobatics
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- U-turn

This is what you should use. Just another standard pokemon to add onto your team for coverage.
You aren't struggling trying to throw in HP Water or something to make them use full.
Acrobatics is STAB + Flying Gem. Earthquake gives sweet coverage. Stone Edge is STAB. U-turn is to scout.

Now onto the gimmicky special set.


Archeops (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Defeatist

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

- Earth Power
- Hidden Power [Water]
- AncientPower
- Focus Blast

Well he still has 323 special attack while running Timid.
Earth Power is great coverage. HP Water is rain boosted, and it's the stronger coverage he doesn't get without rain.
AncientPower is STAB. Focus Blast is coverage.

Overall, he's better than I thought he would be. Adding him to your team for an extra coverage pokemon, or running that special set and getting a better coverage slot out of him are both pretty good ideas. A fairly decent choice in the rain.

Rating for the rain -- 5/10
