Fair enough. I'm considering Starmie, and Dugtrio. But then I'd have 3 Grass weaknesses (OK, Ferrothorn and Dragonite/Tornadus can beat them, as can Toxicroak, for options). A team of Politoed, Dugtrio, Starmie, Dragonite, Toxicroak and Ferrothorn works really well. Might just go for that really. I used it before, but it was a strong team. May as well use it again, maybe make some tweaks, and then make another team. OU team was only in case of Wars and stuff. I'm considering NU thanks to me helping Shade out. Yeah, I'll just go NU lol (haha, so much for ridding myself of all teams. Oh well).
Combusken @ Life Orb
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Fire Blast
- Focus Blast
This was my idea to make a team around. I'd have gone with an SD set, but then I'd only be able to use one STAB, alongside these other moves. Blaziken is so much better, but hey ho. this is probably the most offensive Fire tier in NU, but also the weakest (85 base Attack and Special Attack?). Fire blast is STAB, and nails the many Grass and Ice types in the tier. Focus Blast is also STAB, and beats up the Steel types and things that Fire blast misses. Protect guarantees +1 Speed via Speed Boost, and Substitute helps Combusken take a hit.
