Pokemon of The Day: Wailmer
Wailmer @ Eviolite
Ability: Water Veil
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature - Waterfall - Curse - Rest - Sleep Talk
Wailmer, at first glance, may seem like a piece of styrofoam with great HP, but rather poor defenses, and that wailord would be better. however, this set makes Wailmer tanker than wailord with eviolite. Wailmer can either be a physical or special tank, but I personally prefer a physical tank for my team, as curse not only boosts your defense, it also boosts your Attack, allowing you to hit hard with waterfall after a few set ups of curse, while at the same time being able to tank physical hits. if you want a special tank, then use amnesia over curse and maybe scald over waterfall for that burn chance, but the EVs and IVs may need to be rearranged. but at the end of the day, for good recovery, rest is a great option for reliable recovery, and sleep talk reduces the chances of you being setup fodder or a sitting duck. swap Wailmer into any physical or special hit depending on your set, and it'll absorb it rather well. proceed to set up or rest if necessary, and then just annoy the opponent with you being so tanky! overall, great tank for special or physical with great HP, but be wary of knock off as that will heavily affect your defenses.
