    Analysis: VIVIT-A

    Post  Maribel Hearn on Mon Feb 04, 2013 10:30 am


    HP: 90
    Atk: 95
    Def: 70
    SAtk: 145
    SDef: 70
    Spd: 90
    Ability: Blaze / Levitate
    Tier: Fundex OU

    VIVIT-A is a dangerous special sweeper. 145 Special Attack is astonishingly high, and she gets Levitate, which means she only has two weaknesses. With a Life Orb as held item, VIVIT-A deals huge damage on anything that doesn't resist her attacks. Not even Special walls can easily stand up against her onslaught of special attacks.

    "Pandora's Box"
    VIVIT (F) @ Life Orb
    Ability: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Autotomize
    - Fire Blast / Flamethrower
    - Flash Cannon
    - Energy Ball / Hidden Power [Rock]

    Easier said than done, but just set up and sweep with your dual STAB and coverage attack. Energy Ball covers Water, Hidden Power covers Fire. VIVIT-A's Special Attack hits 555 with a Life Orb, together with 558 / 556 Speed with an Autotomize boost.

    "The Divine Girl"
    VIVIT (F) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Overheat / Fire Blast / Flamethrower
    - Flash Cannon
    - Energy Ball
    - Hidden Power [Rock]

    A choiced sweeping set that allows VIVIT-A to have more attacking options. Overheat can be used over one of the other Fire STAB attacks for a hit-and-run strategy. Energy Ball covers Water and Hidden Power covers Fire. Also, VIVIT-A hits 417 Speed with this set, outspeeding for example Jolly Hibachi or Timid Hibachi #2 and Zalgo. In fact she outspeeds entire OU except for Captain Falcon, foes with boosted Speed or faster Scarfers. (totally didn't copy this set explanation from VIVIT)

    Other Options
    Focus Blast, Air Slash, Work Up

    Focus Blast is another Special attack in VIVIT-A's movepool, but it doesn't provide a lot of coverage. (totally didn't copy that either)

    Air Slash can be used to cover Fighting, and maybe for its flinching chance.

    Work Up boosts VIVIT-A's Special Attack. (see previous parentheses text)

    Checks and Counters
    Due to Levitate, VIVIT-A cannot be countered by Ground attacks, but her Fighting weakness still exists. Of course the Water weakness too: Soviet Mudkip's Drizzle makes VIVIT-A's Fire attacks weaker and he can easily KO her too. Just like regular VIVIT, Leeroy Jenkins can easily counter VIVIT-A. The other Fighting types might be super effective, but they aren't fast enough and will take a lot of damage from VIVIT-A. If you want something to switch into VIVIT-A, just use Reimu, end of story.

    The Berserker modo. Better not mess with me or it's over!
