    Default Mammalian Conspiracy (S-CRMT)

    "Good name for a rock band" is all I have to say about the title.

    Starmie @ Life Orb
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Hydro Pump
    - Ice Beam
    - Thunderbolt
    - Rapid Spin

    Starmie is a very handy anti-lead with all the Gigiasu and Hippowdon running around. Thunderbolt is mainly for Burungeru and Gyarados. Ice Beam hits the various Dragons and Grass-types that try to set up on me.

    Birijion @ Leftovers
    Trait: Justice Heart
    EVs: 252 Atk / 64 SDef / 192 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Swords Dance
    - Leaf Blade
    - Close Combat
    - Stone Edge

    Birijion is a very nasty sweeper with a few problematic Pokemon out of the way. SD give me a usable Attack stat, Leaf Blade and CC are powerful STABs, and SE hits fliers. I decided to invest in SpD because Birijion isn't taking any physical hits anyway, so why not focus on the more important stat?

    Zoroaaku (M) @ Expert Belt
    Trait: Illusion
    EVs: 40 HP / 252 SAtk / 216 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Nasty Plot
    - Dark Pulse
    - Flamethrower
    - Grass Knot

    Part one of my mammalian conspiracy. Zoroark is blazingly fast and very powerful, capable of crushing almost every Pokemon in the game with +2 Dark Pulses, Flamethrowers or Grass Knots. Particularly when people can't tell who he is...

    Scizor (M) @ Choice Band
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Bullet Punch
    - U-turn
    - Pursuit
    - Superpower

    Useful standard is useful.

    Garchomp (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Sand Veil
    EVs: 16 HP / 252 Atk / 240 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Stone Edge
    - Aqua Tail

    Useful standard is useful. Aqua Tail is for Bulky Ground-types like Hippowdon and Rankorosu/Gliscor.

    Infernape (M) @ Expert Belt
    Trait: Blaze
    EVs: 64 HP / 252 SAtk / 192 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Nasty Plot
    - Flamethrower
    - Vacuum Wave
    - Hidden Power [Ice]

    Here's part two of the mammalian conspiracy. Infernape hits the same speed as Zoroark, shares four moves with it (NP, Flamethrower, Grass Knot and Hidden Power), and hits nearly as hard. While the entry hazard damage is different, Starmie is keeping the skies clear for me, and Garchomp and Scizor can take out faster threats to the inner ring.

    Rate/try to rate/troll/etc.
    156 Pokemon in the Unova dex. 6 of them are event Pokemon.
    151 Pokemon in the Kanto dex. 1 of them is an event Pokemon.

    When you see it...

    If Gigaisu is truly a concern, then I'd personally use Surf > Hydro Pump. Missing a Sturdy Pokemon is beyond problematic.

    And that's all I can contribute atm, given my shallow knowledge of the metagame.
    Thinking about posting a team in the 5th Gen IGRMT sub-forum? Be sure to read the rules before proceeding. Are you looking to have only one Pokemon rated? Then check out our Single Rate Thread for movesets and help. Thanks!

    I'm fairly sure I need Hydro Pump to guarantee a KO on Hippowdon or a 2HKO on Zong. I'll do some calcs later and consider Surf.
