A Good Competitive VGC Set For Ever Starter Pokemon


??? a starter VGC set ???

i hav been seeing alot of Q & A about this topic that what kind of starter pokemons are viable this season ...... well that motivated me to pull out a possible competitive set for every starter.not really gonna post the regular sets for viable starters ,just something bit more interesting 

so here we go!




Charizard @ Charizardite Y
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 140 HP / 44 Def / 84 SpA / 240 Spe
Modest Nature
- Heat Wave
- Solar Beam
- Substitute
- Protect

role: surprise substitution and wall breaker
the substitute idea is taken from ashton cox cuz it just the best change that can be made into a char y set



Venusaur @ Big Root
Ability: Chlorophyll
EVs: 4 HP / 104 Def / 252 SpA / 148 Spe
Modest Nature
- Leech Seed
- Sludge Bomb
- Giga Drain
- Protect

role: leech
another set u won,t expect and it can only be OHKO'ed by heavy hitters it leeches the same but absorbs more with the two moves giga drain and leech seed

Blastoise-Mega @ Blastoisinite
Ability: Mega Launcher
EVs: 4 HP / 216 SpA / 36 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature

nothing special to say about this pokemon as this is kinda a standard set for it.

EVs: 16 HP / 252 Atk / 112 SpD / 128 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Ice Punch
- Waterfall

this is one of the most interesting ones i've found in the starters and even may pick up popularity when its H.A is released this thing just OHKO'es many

Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Overheat
- Heat Wave

role: surprise OHKO,er
not a nyc bulk to it and with fall easily to only one single attack sometimes so choice scarf is an ideal item for it kinda.

Meganium @ Light Clay
Ability: Leaf Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 180 Def / 76 SpD
Calm Nature
- Giga Drain
- Reflect
- Light Screen
- Protect

role: screen support

Blaziken @ Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance

still a good set other than who do run life orb i swapped that orb with sash and and putted on swords dance to get that boost.

Ability: Overgrow
EVs: 4 HP / 132 Def / 252 SpA / 120 Spe

Swampert @ Choice Band
Ability: Damp
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Brave Nature

other than putting the fast mega set this one is more interesting behind a TR.

role: somehow nothing fits in :P

Infernape @ Focus Sash
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature

role: surprise special attacker
no one suspects this monkey to be a special attacker but this set is a bit interesting for that reason

Torterra @ Assault Vest
Ability: Shell Armor
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Brave Nature
- Wood Hammer
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake
- Iron Head

role: bulky TR sweeper
another starter to be putted behind a TR environment works best behind them.
