Default Problems with ingame Groudon

Can this even sweep. Like if I use it ingame. And i use swords dance, then Kyogre or some other pokemon would have used ice beam on me and if i survive and try to attack next turn, I would be too slow.

So should i get hasty nature instead because Hasty only lowers my defence and in ubers ingame, they don't use physical moves much anyway.

Groudon @ Leftovers
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 6 SpD
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)

Earthquake
Rock Slide
Swords Dance
Overheat

It's either this or Hasty nature. Or can you please change around the EVs.

Yours is fine (may have to check the IV's). The only time Groudon could make use of its speed is when holding a Salac berry imo

Default Re: Problems with ingame Groudon.

So should i replace leftovers with Salac berry, quick claw or stay with leftovers because this is for ingame and they have that rule where you can't have two pokemon holding the same items.

Currently my team is an exploding snorlax, rayquaza, latias, mewtwo and some pokemon (please suggest, might be sceptile) and i have latias holding leftovers because i can't get soul dew. I could always give Groudon leftovers and Latias lum berry but i don't know.

Please help!

So does that mean even if it has a -Spd nature (Brave), it can still be faster than 396 after salac berry?

I thought it would be too slow even after a salac berry.

no I mean it needs adamant / jolly. Sorry for any misconceptions. If it's brave after Salac at 31 IVs you can get 376 speed, at 0 IVs you can get 334 speed (both with 252 EVed speed).
