    Ok we haven't done anything on here forever... and I'm probably not going to change that, sorry.
    But this is a gimmicky set you can try with probopass.
    Probopass (F) @ Berry Juice
    Trait: Sturdy
    Hardy Nature
    - Taunt
    - Pain Split
    - Protect
    - Sandstorm

    Plan is simple: Spam pain split as your foe attacks so their health goes down. When it's low enough, use sandstorm, with berry juice recovering your HP one time. Protect is to sandstorm stall, taunt is for cottonee (lol).

    Is beaten by:
    - Taunt users
    - Possibly by PP-stallers
    - Cloyster, Breloom, Cincinno, Darkrai, Arceus [anything that uses status moves or mutli-hit moves]
    - Anything immune to sandstorm (Ground/Rock/Steel types).

    So it's not very viable but it's an important set for its gimmicklyness and another way to beat choice users barring arceus, breloom, and cincinno.

    I don't really like focusing on random sets like this when there are still good sets that need doing (Machamp, Heatran ect.) but some activity is better then no activity.

    Firstly mention that set needs to be level 2 to work properly you don't want people using that on a level 100, give toxic a mention it can be better then sandstorm on occasion.
