Ampharos -- Rainy day Review -- 181

Ampharos! This awesome pokemon gets hated on for it's below average speed, which I hate. But I still love it regardless!
Go Ampharos fans! And Sheep fans!


Ampharos (M) @ Air Balloon

Trait: Static

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

- Agility
- Thunder
- Hidden Power [Water]
- Signal Beam

Just a taste of his Ama... wait.. Awful, movepool. Sad
Although in the rain, all he's got, works great!
Agility boosts his speed just over 400, enough to outspeed slow scarfers and fast sweepers, Thunder is STAB, rain, you know the drill there. HP Water gets a rain boost and covers his only weakness, while Signal Beam gets some nice coverage with everything else flying around in this set. This is my personal favorite way to use him in the rain.

Physical...? No, Special again, Special[Alt]:

Ampharos (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Static

EVs: 136 HP / 252 SAtk / 120 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

- Cotton Guard
- Thunder
- Hidden Power [Water]
- Heal Bell

Cotton Guard boosts your Defense up to par, while Heal Bell is team support.
Thunder is still there, being it's 100% accuracy self, and HP Water for that rain boost.

Overall, the STAB Thunder boost really gives him that " Just over the edge " power that Ampharos seems to lack without the rain, powered up HP Water lets him get a strong hold on higher powered coverage moves, which Ampharos really needs.

Rating for the rain - 6.5/10
