    Default Surprise! shoddy rmt

    Ok, heres the deal. this team isn't winning that much. even though i'm a bit good with it, I don't think it is living to it's full potential. so, meet the team!

    Darkwolf (Absol) (M) @ Life Orb
    Ability: Super Luck
    EVs: 252 Atk/240 Spd/16 SAtk
    Naughty nature (+Atk, -SDef)
    - Superpower
    - Magic Coat
    - Fire Blast
    - Sucker Punch

    Aquawind (Suicune) @ Leftovers
    Ability: Pressure
    EVs: 244 HP/14 SAtk/252 SDef
    Calm nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Surf
    - Roar
    - Mirror Coat
    - Ice Beam

    Random line about it: Why must you ruin my life?
    Description: My Special wall Suicune. Roar to stop opponents coming in to boost their stats, MIrror coat to annoy Blisseys and celebiis who ruin my teams fun, and Surf and Ice Beam to deal some damage. My first reciever of Drifblim's stat boosts.

    Quakzorz (Porygonz) @ Focus Sash
    Ability: Adaptability
    EVs: 6 HP/252 Spd/252 SAtk
    Timid nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Psychic
    - Tri Attack
    - Thunderbolt
    - Signal Beam/Shadow Ball
    rlai: SUPA DUCK!!!!
    Description: My (somewhat risky) special sweep. IF drifblim manages to get 6 calm minds up (which, believe me, it has done a few times) and gives it to this guy, it can sweep like crazy. Tri Attack for STAB, Psychic to wipe out any fighting types, thunderbolt for suicunes and togekisses who come in to stall him out, and either shadow ball for psychics and ghosts, or signal beam for celebiis, other psychics and dark types. currently using signal Beam.

    Bugged (Shuckle) (M) @ Leftovers
    Ability: Gluttony
    EVs: 200 HP/172 Def/138 SDef
    Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Toxic
    - Knock Off
    - Encore
    - Rest

    rlai:are you made of metal?
    description:Shuckle is a great physical wall, and it can be used as a special wall if snorlax goes down, I automatically try to encore the opponent onto a nve/stat booster move, then knock off their item if it looks like it poses a threat. then i toxic them and knock off them to death. if its close to dying, i rest, as its sp/def is decent enough to survive a few hits

    Mystery (Alakazam) (F) @ Choice Specs
    Ability: Inner Focus
    EVs: 6 HP/252 Spd/252 SAtk
    Timid nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Psychic
    - Focus Blast
    - Trick
    - Energy Ball

    rlai:smart alec!
    description:My special sweep alakazam. Trick is there to cripple opponents with the choice specs, but, if neccessary, i keep them. Psychic and focus blast for type coverage, and energy ball over shadow ball to pose a threat to bulky waters and grounds which i can't knock out with the others.

    Blimp (Drifblim) (M) @ Salac Berry
    Ability: Unburden
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Spd/6 SDef
    Hasty nature (+Spd, -Def)
    - Baton Pass
    - Calm Mind
    - Substitute
    - Shadow Ball

    rlai:you do all that work just to give it away.
    description: Drifblim here isn't completly set in stone, but it's a handy tool for everyone else. Once behind a sub, I calm mind up. sure, only chatot and alakazam need the sp. Atk boosts, but it can be used by snorlax for the sp. def boosts, which he can use to tank . the sub/mind combo repeats until salac berry activates (which is hopefully behind a sub). once activated, i baton pass it to Porygon-Z/Alakazam/Suicune. Shadow ball is there so that i can attack if he is the last alive.

    Thank you in advance for rating, and if you've read this far, you might as well rate it.

    EDIT3:My Aggron Set

    Aggron @ Leftovers
    Ability: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/6 Def (0 Speed IV's)
    Relaxed nature (+Def, -Spe)
    - Metal Burst
    - Stone Edge
    - Focus Punch
    - Curse

    this might go back over Drifblim. If it gets into the main team, I'll describe it in more detail, but for now, This Metal Burst tank is in the box

    Why no item on Shuckle? Add Lefties, a berry or an Iron Ball. Just something.

    What are you, daft? Since when does Shuckle need an item?

    Also the Drifblim description is very happy.

    Before anything else, this is sig worthy, but alas, I have no more room.

    Anyway, Chatot really isn't a great Pokemon. I personally like the little fella, but theres many Pokemon that outclass him. Togekiss immediately comes to mind.

    Also, Lefties on Shuckle, also get rid of Gyro Ball; even though he's slow it's not gonna hit hard. Go with Knock Off and trade Wrap for Rest. If you still want to attack hard go with EQ over Knock Off, this way you're not walled by Steels and Poisons, with the exception of Gengar. You could also use Stealth Rock with Shuckle.

    But overall without Sandstorm he's not reaching his full potential.

    once activated, i baton pass it to whoever needs it, (which is mostly chatot).
    this needs replacing but changing it to suit the team helps too.
    Baton Passing to "whoever needs it" is bad game. You baton pass to someone who is directly there to take advantage of it. This team is very sporadic and I think you need to try again. Sorry.

    reading above posts:
    Rad3n (first) added lefties
    Digital Love: Yeah, but i have togekiss on two other teams, and i don't like repeating myself. and with 282 sp.atk/309 spd, chatot can do some damage.
    About shuckle, i'm going to use knock off, this is a staller wall and rest is there too.#
    Rad3n (second) ok, i'll change that to: baton pass to chatot.

    Thank you for the rates!

    er,i noticed that people are only viewing my team without viewing it. i mean, 115 people have viewed this thread, but only 3 people have helped me. this is outrageous as even other teams whic have just been made are getting loads of raters. so, if you are viewing this thread, at least make an effort to help me. if this is breaking a rule or two then i am sorry, but this (quoting family guy) really grinds my gears.

    Ugh, triple posting...

    Anyways, some notes:

    You want to make some monsterous use of the CM Baton Pass? Pass it to an Adaptability PoryZ. Do so with an expected Shadow Ball and nullify the damage so you have a speed boosted PoryZ (get his speed to 280 with EV's so he can essentially outrun everything) with CM power behind a Sub. You have no idea how much his team should fear your Hyper Beam at this point. There are some things to keep in mind if you want to make sure this pass is successful and how cautious you are so let me know if you want to use it.

    Your Sp.D wall should be able to recieve tankability from the pass as well.

    Erm, Absol lead without Scarf? No... change now.

    finally, a rate! (sorry for triple posting)
    ok, Rhys29, replying to your ideas:
    Porygon-Z sounds like a great addition to the team!
    Tankability eh...? well, thats good enough for me. snorlax is the newest user of baton pass.
    And absol has his scarf on.

    Also, I've changed drifblim a bit so if he's the only pokemon left (which he usually is) he isn't washed over completly. it has shadow ball over thunder wave now

    No no no on Snorlax. Tankability should be recieving an attack boost with the Def. So you'd want a Sp.D wall with a poke with potential in Sp.A. Switch Chattot for PoryZ.

    Chatot is good, however PoryZ is a better option. Sure, Chatot has its uses, however it is meant for UU. Please listen to reason and don't use the 'but I like using him!' arguement, because otherwise you're disregarding good advice.

    What I'm saying is that the recipiant of the power up should either be getting some defenses it needs, get some power it needs, or both. In Snorlax's case, he needs Def and Att, which CM doesn't supply. A good recipiant/user of CM is Suicune since he has really good Def and you can boost his Surf to monsterous proportions. What you are looking to do is to add to something that the poke needs in order to sweep with a good chunk of bulk behind it instead of speed.

    A thought: A Bulk Up Sub/Punch Bliss would ruin everything...

    Though PZ is great, if you want to keep their usage fairly the same, Togekiss is a much better Chatot, though PZ has its advantages

    PZ with Adaptability and 6 stages of Sp.A OHKO's everything in the game that it can hit (Ghosts). I will run damage calcs to show you how much that guy is to be feared.

    Togekiss is another good option yes.

    I understand that, but I just said Togekiss because It's also Normal and Flying.

    PZ will die before it gets six stages unless your opponent can't predict worth crap or you BP it

    It's a stretch expecting Drifblim to be able to pass six CM's, but PZ is a great Pokemon, no doubt.

    Absol shouldn't be running 252 Spe, he should be running 216 Spe so he outruns his main lead threats: Crobat, Jolteon, and Aerodactyl.

    Also your movesets are poor, I'll fix later...

    hey, I want to aks something since we're talking about drifblim. Is unburden able to be baton passed? Because if it does, you can do a better work with that.

    You aren't making effective use of his EV's, meaning they could be going elsewhere.
