[Pokémon] Frosthra

Post by Lucian Astaroth on 2015-04-30, 17:04

Frosthra
Base stats: 85 HP/ 55 Atk/ 60 Def/ 140 SpA/ 95 SpD/ 115 Spe

1.
Frosthra @ Life Orb
Timid Nature +Speed/ -Atk
Deep Freeze
252 SpA/ 252 Spe/ 4 SpD



  • Quiver Dance/Rain Dance/Hail
  • Freeze Dry/Ice Beam/Blizzard
  • Bug Buzz
  • Hurricane


So this Pokémon appealed to me from when I first saw it - high SpA and Speed make it suited to a sweeper set, but a limited movepool leaves it lacking somewhat. Quiver Dance is to set up on a predictable switch or just whenever you get the opportunity, Rain Dance and Hail to be used with Hurricane and Blizzard respectively, (as I think they each increase the accuracy to 100%?). Freeze Dry for the Water Types? Or Ice Beam/ Blizzard for more powerful STAB, ditto Bug Buzz, and Hurricane as it's a powerful move to provide more attacking move types.

Mega/ Inflagetah is a major problem, as a 4x weakness to Fire, (and rock) make it vulnerable, but 115 base speed means not much else can outrun it, and the Life Orb is to balance out the loss of SpA from having a Speed boosting nature. Rain Dance could also possibly be used to try and weaken Flame Impact, though I'm not sure how effective it would be. Hence, I give you a second set:

2.
Frosthra @Focus Sash - When added
Modest Nature +SpA/ -Atk
252 SpA/ 252 Speed/ 4 Sp Def



  • Quiver Dance/Rain Dance
  • Freeze Dry/Ice Beam
  • Bug Buzz
  • Hurricane


This set's moves are pretty much the same as the previous, except blizzard is out of the equation - a guaranteed set up of Quiver Dance or Rain Dance allows you to out speed most things, except for Mega/Inflagetah, which can be taken out with a Hurricane, (Hopefully).

The main difference is in the item - Focus Sash - which in turn means a modest nature is needed to counterbalance the Damage lost from not having Life Orb, hence the Modest Nature. Once set up with Dances however, providing there are no sneaky Priority moves, Frosthra can proceed to sweep most things.

So yeah, there it is. Before you ask, yes I am aware of the glaring 4x Weaknesses to Rock and Fire, and the Limited movepool types of Bug, Ice, Flying & Normal, but I think this Pokémon is awesome & hopefully  it'll be able to get some more moves from breeding or tutors, (there's no info on the latter on the wiki as of yet).

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I don't know that I would bother with Hurricane. It's strong, but it isn't STAB and isn't super effective against a weakness of Frosthra. I understand that, if set up, it could maybe handle an Inflagetah, for example, but I would probably stick to STAB moves for Frosthra and switch out if necessary. I would run Quiver Dance, Ice Beam (for non-water), Freeze Dry (for water), and Bug Buzz. As for items and nature, both work IMO.

Rain Dance is a set up for Hurricane. When it's raining, Hurricane cannot miss.

And it also dampens Fire attacks, which it is quad weak to.
