View Full Version : Rate my (n00b) BW team

3rd January 2011, 1:00 AM
Hi! I'm new to the forums here. Anyway, with BW coming out in America soon, I figured I'd give this whole competitive battling thing a shot by making a team constructed entirely of 5th gen monz. I'm new at this, constructive criticism is thankfully received. Not sure exactly if this team is legal or not as I don't exactly know all of the rules of competitive battling in OU.

Shanderaa works well with Nattorei, as a choiced fire or fighting that tries to take down Nattorei will allow a switch-in for Shanderaa who can proceed to CM and pwn. Nattorei has a Shed Shell to avoid enemy Shanderaa, though I'm not sure what I would do to take it down if I found myself facing one. Fighting and fire types are also attracted to my Doryuuzu, so it works well with Shanderaa as well. Ditto wth Zuruzukin, who is weak to fighting. Urugamosu boosts and sweeps, but I have no RS to rid myself of SR which would reeeeally cripple it, and I don't know where I could fit a spinner in. Ononokusu makes a beastly revenge killer, with the best STAB outrage in the game bar Rayquaza. Nattorei sets up Sandstorm and Doryuuzu abuses it to SD and sweep. Zuruzukin is a nice Bulk Up abuser, but I'm honestly not quite sure what to do with him. I just had an extra space on my team and thought he was okay so I added him. I guess I could use a nice bolt-beamer, but I'm trying to make this team 5th-gen pokemon only. Help please!

If this is a competitive team, put this in the competitive sub-forum. Good luck on fifth generation.

Whoops! Sorry, didn't notice it.
