View Full Version : Meh Test Team w/e

19th November 2006, 6:45 PM
This is planned, so I have no test results in this
Regice @ Leftovers
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt
- Psych Up
- Rest
Old standard from RSE, but with more defense to help take on Gyarados. It's not like TBolt is going to OHKO it anyway

Gaburiasu @ Leftovers
Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 6HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Dragon Claw
- Crunch
Destroys stuff. Crunch for Kureseria.

Salamence @ Choice Band
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Aerial Ace
- Dragon Claw
- Fire Fang
- Sleep Talk/Earthquake/Stone Edge/Rock Slide
Meh. Needed something to take out Heracross kinda. Sleep Talk for Sleep Absorption.

Tyranitar @ Lefties
Trait: Sandstream
EVs: Forgot.......(It has 203 in Speed (stat), max Atk, rest in HP I believe)
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide/Stone Edge
- Crunch
Late game sweeper

Metagross @ Choice Band
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: It has Max Atk, 180 in Speed (stat), rest in HP.
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Meteor Mash
- Thunderpunch
- Explosion
Blows up on random threats.

Kureseria @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
- Ice Beam
- Psychic
- Moonlight/Rest
Apparently wanted and needed something defensive enough to take on random non crunching Gaburiasu and here's what I got. Bold and Max Def to hopefully take <50% on Metagross CB Meteor Mash to sort of ease prediction for the team, as I have no metagross coverage. Needed Calm Mind to cover Swampert, Ice Beam for Mence/Draggy/Gabu and Psychic for Fighters (don't say Salamence because some carry Ice Punch). Moonlight sucks in Sandstorm, but I suppose I could try to get Kureseria to finish it's job before I bring out Tar, or Rest so I don't really have to worry much.

Metagross: Non-CB versions are somewhat covered by Gaburiasu. CB Versions require prediction to handle, but it isn't easy covering everything in the DP metagame
Tyranitar: Gaburiasu for that, unless it carries Ice Fang. Metagross for a backup kinda, although it hates Earthquake
Gaburaisu: This thing iss pretty much uncounterable, but Regice and Kureseria can kinda destroy it
Suicune:Regice Psychs Up on it's Calm Minds and force it to Rest. In Sandstorm, TBolt is a 3HKO. If not, then I can predict rest and move to Metagross to Thunderpunch it.
Mence/Draggy: Covered by Kureseria
Agunomu: Regice. kinda.
Lucario: Salamence sort of. Lucario has no real counters

Hmm....I was a bit sketchy on 2 pokemon with x4 weakness to Ice and they're both dragons...but you reassured be with rock and steel type moves

Psych Up regice is too situational imo.

252 HP / 96 Def / 24 Spd / 100 SAtk / 36 SDef

TBolt will OHKO Gyara now.

Personally I think Kabu's attacks should do enough to Hera.

DDTar needs Taunt imo.Use 200 Spd to beat Base 100s after a DD (so long as they've not got a +Spd nature) 222 beats all 100 base speed pokemon, and 242 beats admant Duggy and Starmies.

Kuresia (sp) needs ~236 SAtk to OHKO the Sala with Ice Beam if you'd like. Rest because 1) Tar's Sandstorm makes the recovery 1/3 i believe and 2) Toxic will lol at you.

My Regice, I must admit, doesn't have maxed out IVs in game. I was lucky to get a Bold one, and it's stats aren't that awesome (It has 352 HP and 311 Def at Lv.100, 225 SA as well, and I doubt putting SA into it is going to help as Gyara will survive a Bolt anyway, and that I will suffer defensively if I move EVs.

Meh getting 236 SA is awesome but it would waste awesome his defenses IMO. It's a strain there, as I'd need ~200 EVs in game to even reach that high.

I dunno if Taunt is that useful anymore, despite the extra turn now in D/P. Skarm hates Rock Slide already and everything else just attacks at you. Crunch 2HKOs Milotic and also happens to actually hurt Slowbro and friends

I might try Sleep Talk Regice and give an extra attacking move on Sala, though.
