Bird of Doom
Articuno @ Leftovers
252 HP / 96 Defense / 64 Speed / 96 Special Defense
Outlawed in most states, countries, and independent municipalities…however it is still worth stating. This is the only poke I think can actually use a OHKO move at all, and he does it better than any one. This is what the RB pokedex meant when it said “A legendary bird Pokémon said to appear to doomed people who are lost in icy mountains.” Scary isn’t it? This is easy-mode pokemon for the most part, protect roost can stall PP of the most dangerous moves with pressure, when you know a kill is possible, you hit the mind reader and let them know their man is doomed
252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP
- Ice Shard
- Steel Wing
As if Articuno wasn’t novelty enough, how about a choice band set?! Adamant is preferable since you have priority with ice shard to make up for the speed. U-turn to get the hell out of dodge, Steel Wing…for filler, feel free to change. Aerial Ace is stab…and Blizzard is for the odd physical wall that steps in on you, Call this build lame if you want, but it had to be done, just to say it is doable.
Kickin’ it old school.
Articuno @ Life Orb
252 Special Attack / 252 Speed / 6 Hp
-Blizzard / Ice Beam
-Hyper Beam / Hidden Power Electric / Extrasensory / Signal Beam - Platinum Move
Essentially this is a modified version of the Gen one Articuno, and it is bringing sexy back. Blizzard/Ice Beam is for your choice of sexy stab, blizzard of course if deciding to be awesome and run a hail team. Water pulse is for the darn rocks that switch in such as Mr. T-tar, and any fire type that randomly waltzes in on you. I added hyper beam for random nostalgic reasons…and it’s the biggest special bang the bird has got, Hidden power, is preferable, ground, electric, or maybe even fighting, as you can angle your self a little more for coverage, your last option is the flinch possible but rare Extrasensory. Agility up and rock on….er articuno hates rocks…um…chill out? This also can become a choice set if you so desire.
