    Analysis: Yuuka Kazami

    Yuuka Kazami


    Type:
    HP: 120
    Attack: 130
    Defense: 70
    Special Attack: 135
    Special Defense: 85
    Speed: 0
    Ability: Overgrow / Pressure / Intimidate
    Tier: Fundex UU

    From a brief look at her stats, Yuuka isn't going to be outspeeding anything. At all. However, her defenses are quite decent and her attacking stats are much better. She has a decent movepool for both Physical and Special attacks, so can perform as a Physical, Special or Mixed attacker. Overgrow is used with Yuuka's slowness: take hits and deal damage back with her Grass STAB, whilst Intimidate allows her to take hits better.

    "She will walk slowly towards you..."
    Yuuka Kazami (F) @ Leftovers / Life Orb
    Ability: Overgrow / Intimidate
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    IVs: 31 HP / 31 Atk / 31 Def / 31 SAtk / 31 SDef / 0 Spd
    Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
    - Sucker Punch
    - Leaf Blade
    - Close Combat
    - Gyro Ball

    This set is to be used purely in Trick Room, as Yuuka reaches a base Speed stat of 4 with minimum IVs and a negative nature. Yuuka has a lot of options to use with her nice Attack stat. Sucker Punch is used to hit anything if Trick Room ends before they hit Yuuka. Leaf Blade is nice STAB attack that also works off Overgrow (if that is being used). Close Combat hits Steel types that would wall Yuuka otherwise, and Gyro Ball becomes very strong with Yuuka's speed, and allows her to hit Ice/Rock types without the stat drops from Close Combat.

    "And stare at you..."
    Yuuka Kazami (F) @ Leftovers / Life Orb
    Trait: Overgrow
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
    IVs: 31 HP / 0 Atk / 31 Def / 31 SAtk / 31 SDef / 0 Spd
    Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
    - Dark Pulse
    - Petal Dance / Giga Drain
    - Focus Blast
    - Ice Beam

    Basically the same as above, except Special. Giga Drain is usable over Petal Dance if you don't want to be locked into a move or confused. Ice Beam is used to hit Remilia and other flying types Super effectively. 0 IVs in Attack reduces confusion damage.

    "She'll aim her Parasol... And..."
    Yuuka Kazami (F) @ Leftovers / Life Orb
    Ability: Overgrow / Intimidate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SAtk
    Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd) / Quiet Natue (+SAtk, -Spd)
    - Sucker Punch
    - Giga Drain / Leaf Blade
    - Close Combat / Focus Blast
    - Ice Beam / Hidden Power [Fire]

    This set uses both Yuuka's Attack and Special Attack. The nature is yours to choose: If you want to have a more Specially oriented Yuuka, use Quiet. Else, use Brave. Sucker Punch is used to hit the opponent before the opponent hits Yuuka. Use Giga Drain / Leaf Blade for a strong STAB attack. Close Combat/Focus Blast hits Steel-Types dependent on Yuuka's nature. Ice Beam / Hidden Power [Fire] finishes off the set to grant extra coverage.

    Checks and Counters
    Yuuka is very slow, so anything will outspeed her unless she is Trick Room. Any strong Bug-, Fire- or Fighting-Type attack will deal with Yuuka easily. Hibachi does great at countering Yuuka, but has to watch out for the Hidden Power [Fire]. Eirin has enough bulk to take most of Yuuka's attacks and can try to burn with Scald or deal Super Effective damage with Sludge Bomb. Remilia can come in on most attacks except Ice Beam and then deal a lot of damage.
