    Default This new NetBattle Metagame is scary, I miss SkarmBliss [OU Team]

    You got 0ma running around with his creepy Sword Dance Celi-CB Meta combo and then shitting on me with DD mence (and for those who missed it I got raped big time by 0ma just now), then I run into a CB-Tar which tore the utter **** out of me on surprise alone (I had been led to believe Boah is dead and DD-tar reigned supreme >>). So yeah, it's a new age, SkarmBliss is a faded memory, people use Destiny Bond on their Gengar's, Salamence doesn't use CB and 0ma's still raping me like the new inmate in prison, fix the **** out of my team and bring it up to the new era of online pogeymonzing.

    Zapdos @ Leftovers
    Trait: Pressure
    EVs: 124 HP / 176 Def / 158 Spd / 52 SAtk
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Rest
    - Sleep Talk
    - Thunderbolt
    Good old Zappy. Not much to see here, in the old days it used to have 300 Speed for the predictable CB mence leads. I haven't seen a single CB mence since my return, nor have I seen any lead. The growth in Regice popularity doesn't help matters either. The set is designed to receive a couple of Cms from Celi and generally sweep or stall with Rest-Talk. Absorbs sleep status for the team.

    Vaporeon (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Water Absorb
    EVs: 252 Def / 82 SAtk / 176 SDef
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Charm
    - Ice Beam
    - Surf
    - Wish
    Charm is awesome on this thing, again, the new Regice craze complete shits on me, but Lax still seems popular enough to make Charm still cool. Using this guy as Wish support for Starmie, Hera and Meta.

    Heracross (F) @ Choice Band
    Trait: Guts
    EVs: 252 Atk / 140 Spd / 118 SDef
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Brick Break
    - Focus Punch
    - Hidden Power [Rock]
    - Megahorn
    The age of CB Hera doesn't seem dead either. The guy still shits on things. Gave him enough speed to outrun max speed Maggy/Meta, I don't see the need for Max speed on an Adamant 'cross for the sake of outrunning people who didn't give their DD-mence an extra 24 Speed EVs...

    Metagross @ Leftovers
    Trait: Clear Body
    EVs: 78 HP / 150 Atk / 10 Spd / 96 SAtk / 176 SDef
    Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
    - Earthquake
    - Meteor Mash
    - Substitute
    - Thunderpunch
    When it gets a CM pass from Celi TPunch is quite nice for Water type switch ins. Swampert totally rapes me though. Skarm still seems popular though. Sub is quite fun for incoming statuses and stuff but should probably drop this set altogether.

    Celebi @ Leftovers
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 242 HP / 60 Def / 152 Spd / 56 SDef
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Baton Pass
    - Calm Mind
    - Psychic
    - Recover
    CM-passes to Starmie or Zappy. In the good ol' days 300 speed meant it could jump to Zappy before a CB HP Flying.. again, dead.

    Starmie @ Leftovers
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 42 Def / 216 Spd / 252 SAtk
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Ice Beam
    - Rapid Spin
    - Surf
    - Thunderbolt
    Duno if I need Recover with no Bliss to play stall games with, although I do miss it. On the other hand hitting Celi with Ice Beam on the switch is awesome =S

    ----

    Anyway, this team is living in the past. SkarmBliss died along time ago and with it went the McGar and BoahTar, 2006 my team for me kthx before I just get ****** off and make the age old stall team to be **** on by someone else living in 2005 running around with a McGar or Boah >>;

    Current trail of thoughts is to drop Vappy altogether in favour of a solid special wall *cough* Regice */cough*, change up Meta or drop him as well, ditch Starmie completely and change or ditch Celi. Zapdos seems to be the heart of my team still, despite being rather out dated.

    Edit: Cleaned up typos.

    Whatever happened to HP Grass on zappy ;-;
    The truth is that I'm a bad person. But, that's gonna change - I'm going to change. This is the last of that sort of thing. Now I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life. I'm looking forward to it already. I'm gonna be just like you. The job, the family, the fucking big television. The washing machine, the car, the compact disc and electric tin opener, good health, low cholesterol, dental insurance, mortgage, starter home, leisure wear, luggage, three piece suite, DIY, game shows, junk food, children, walks in the park, nine to five, good at golf, washing the car, choice of sweaters, family Christmas, indexed pension, tax exemption, clearing gutters, getting by, looking ahead, the day you die.

    What does that have to do with Rating the thread? I guess Toy is right.

    You really need a (P)Hazer. Mabey Weezing > Vappy imo.

    Watch out for Dugtrio. They run all over the place now and trap Celebi and finish it off with HP Bug. Heracross can also be trapped after sacrificing one pogey and then switching in Duggy for the Aerial Ace Hera overkilling.
