SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I recently started playing pokemon again on shoddy and this is my first team back keep in mind im a bit rusty but this team has been doing great for me, and I got a pretty high CRE out of it.
Well Im an offense player so it's no surprise here that this is an offense team. but wait its not just any offense its....bulky offense Ta Dah! I looked at all these teams and I saw one thing about mostly all of them, LO starmie could tear right through them. So thats where this team started out.
Lets go in depth shall we..............
Metagross @ Lum Berry
Ability: Clear Body
Ev's: 236 Hp/ 228 Atk/ 44 Spe
Credit to this set goes to Blue Harvest is Great. I saw it in her RMTs but I never tried it out untill now but im glad I did because this thing works great often taking down a pokemon and exploding onto the next or better yet surviving and exploding late game. Idk what the ev's do and I cant be bothered to check but I don't question Blue Harvest she knows her ****
Heatran @ Choice Specs
Ability: Flash Fire
40 Hp/ 252 SpA/ 216 Spe
-Hidden Power Grass
Oh what a monster specs tran is fire blast can tear through quite a lot of teams and rack up some serious damage on blissey. It really helps me when opponents switch in their gyarados to a specs Fire Blasty because I am a bit weak to it. Hidden power grass is to give swampert a beating. Stealth Rock allows me to bluff another set such as a support heatran but thats not really my main concern. Heatran just always seems to have an easy time putting up the rocks
Shaymin @ Leftovers
Abiltiy: Natural Cure
Ev's: 252 Hp/ 40 Spa/ 216 Spe
-Hidden Power Fire
Psuedo Celetran combo here Sub seed shaymin is the new jirahci I swear! this thing can annoy the **** out of people. It gets a free switch into blissey who starmie has trouble with and proceeds to sap the health with leech seed. Seed flare is what made me decide to use this shaymin over celebi. Shaymin can get a free sub on so many of the OU pokemon in the current metagame its not even funny once behind it just activate the sub seeding strategy.
Scizor @ Life Orb
Ev's: 248 Hp/ 252 Atk/ 8 Spe
Scizor, the mindless U-turning spammer, finds its way into this team, much like it finds itself on many other teams since Platinum's release. Scizor is a secondary check against fragile offensive Pokemon such as Weavile thanks to its Technician and Life orb boosted Bullet Punch. Scizor acts as a safety blanket against Dragon Dance Dragonite as well should it manage to set up amidst the sea of attacks. ascizor is also the primary check against Cresselia since U-turn does quite a bit of damage. I love Scizor
Flygon @ Choice Scarf
Ev's 4 Hp/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spe
Every team needs a scarfer to check those speed boosting pokemon and mine is no exception flygon offers a good plethora of resistances here and has great synergy with the team. Outrage is great for sweeping late game once all the steel types are eliminated. U-Turn allows me to just play mind games with the opponent and Stone Edge is there to semi check DD gyara. shaymin can hold it up a bit but the combination of a seed flare plus a stone edge can KO it
Starmie @ Life Orb
Ability: Natural Cure
Ev's 4 Hp/ 252 Spa/ 252 Spe
So many teams are weak to this its not even funny. bottom line if you dont have a blissey somewhere on your team you can't counter LO starmie your best way around it is prediction. Starmie likes to come in late game when stealth rock damage has added up and after shaymin has sapped hp from leech seed, Oh and you cant forget after Specs Tran is done spamming the fire blasts. Sadly starmie is my only safe switch into infernape but it does have a reliable way to recover hp.
GO GO GO RATE......but only if you know what your talking about
