This set plays on the fact that that psychic is the only attack move worth having on zam.

Zam@(can't think of any good items)

Barrier
Calm mind
Recover
Psychic.

Barrier raises zams base defence to 100 and after a few calm minds and barriers along with recover, zam will become difficult to kill. Psychic is the only attack move worth having on zam anyway (I suppose we could use thief or shock wave. I don't like hidden power). Won't affect ghost types, but nothing is perfect.

First of all, it will affect Ghost types, but not Dark types, which are all common.

Go with:

Alakazam@Petaya Berry/Leftovers

-Calm Mind
-Psychic
-Elemental Punch/Recover
-Elemental Punch/Recover

oops, i meant dark types. I like barrier on zam cos it gives it t leat a small chance of surviving 1 physical attack.

The elemental punches are definitely worth having. Some umbreon or tyranitar, or whatever rears its ugly head, is going to destroy the frail little psychic-only thing.

Come on! whats the use of leftovers. Zam has very small Hp, and they wont help recover much of its health. I would use reflect instead of barrier, as it is more effective although it lasts shorter

Eh, Scope Lens relies only on luck and it is considered a banned item in the competitive play which this board is all about. Please, don't go recommending stuff you have no clue of.

All right,then. If you cannot use scope lens, then try something like focus band or choice band. But dont use Leftovers. leave them for something thats worth it!

Focus band is a banned item as well (in competitive play). Why would you use a Choice Band if the Pokemon will have to use more than one move in order to deal damage? Besides, Choice Band gives 1.5x attack, not sp atck...:rolleyes:

Banned from competitive play:

Focus Band
Scope Lens
Bright Powder
King's Rock
Lax Incence
Quick Claw

As you can probably notice, all those items rely only on luck.
