View Full Version : My Pokemon Online Team

7th January 2011, 9:53 PM
This is my competitive battling team. I'm called infernityomegaX and this is the new team I have devised. It's been working out quite well, but I wanted to get some criticisms and ratings to see how it stacks up.

Roserade (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Toxic Spikes
- Sleep Powder
- Grass Knot
- Hidden Power [Ice]

My lead. He sleeps them, then toxic spikes. Grass knot and HP Ice are for damage. That's bout it for him.

Heatran (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Nitro Charge
- Earth Power
- Fire Blast
- Stealth Rock

Nitro Charge is to boost his speed. He sets up rocks, then uses either fire blast or earth power to sweep. Also acts as a great switch in if I suspect someones gonna use a fire move on Scizor.

Starmie @ Life Orb
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Surf
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
- Recover

Another sweeper. Boltbeam coverage and surf for STAB. Recover for healing, though I may switch for rapid spin.

Scizor (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Technician
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
- Brick Break
- X-Scissor

Swords Dance then sweep. Bullet punch for STAB and priority, X-Scissor for STAB and Brick Break for coverage.

Jirachi @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 224 Def / 32 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
- Wish
- Psychic
- Thunderbolt

Calm Mind/Wish support. Can also be a very potent sweeper.

Dragonite (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Multi-Scale
EVs: 40 HP / 252 Atk / 216 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- ThunderPunch
- Dragon Claw

My last sweeper. Earthquake and thunderpunch hit a lot of pokes. Dragon Claw is for STAB and dragon dance nets me extra speed and attack. Can easily set up at least one DD due to Multi Scale.

All comments and criticisms appreciated.
Thanks :);444;

As a Pokémon Online team, you might want to move this to CRMT mate.


Although one thing is that I'd say to use Fire Punch > Thunderpunch on Dragonite as Fire + Dragon have very good coverage. Perhaps Roost > EQ as the former becomes somewhat redundant, but idk how that works for competitive.

Cheers. Have done that. I just thought Tpunch would be great as my team gets walled by water types. I'll probably swap equake for roost though.

i like it. a little to much ou for me but its pretty good. i think the jirachi would be better as an iron head flinch jirachi even though those annoy me more then anything and i would never use one. the dragonite is an utter beast hard to get rid of. heatran is beast except in my opinon i take out nitro charge. and im to lazy to give advice on others but good job! lol

also bug bite > x-scissor on scizor just thought id point that out

7th January 2011, 10:57 PM
Grass knot for what swampert isn't a force anymore and tyraniar is a lead when? I would go with sludge bomb for erufuun

yeah recover for rapid spin

8th January 2011, 8:41 AM
Um, I don't have an erufuun lol
Do you mean Roserade?

Thanks for pointing out that bug bite is better. It has 135 power with STAB and technician right?

8th January 2011, 8:55 AM
Also, might consider using a Metagross as a lead.

Bullet Punch
Stealth Rock

However, any lead who can set up rocks and toxic spikes and can take many hits would be great

I believe he meant for KILLING erufuun.

Yeah, Bug Bite is better for offense although you could also run U-Turn instead so you can do some damage and GTFO. then it's satndard Scizor, Starmie and Roserade (but sludge Bomb/Energy Ball are much more useful than Grass Knot now). Forretress could work as a lead as it can do all 3 entry hazards (If I remember correctly...) and is great for physical bulk.

Ok. I've been generally going well with Roserade, but my sister uses a Kerudio to lead which pisses me off with HP fire and is faster than roserade lol.
