    Default Playing With Fire

    The following team is one of my most succesfull teams yet not only that it's also my most succesful Gym Team from when I was the Fire Gym Leader of the Official Serebii League.This team had a record of 90% wins in Gym Battles(note this was not my record as I used other teams that might have done slightly worse <.<)and I also peaked 1430 points on smogon(check the bottom of the post) but now that the league has closed I'm retiring this team before it loses it shine.



    Ninetales (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Drought
    EVs: 88 HP / 252 SAtk / 168 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Will-O-Wisp
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Fire Blast
    - SolarBeam
    My weather Inducer:Ninetales
    Will-o-Wisp is for(Tyranitar and Terrakion) Rock types and Dragons that come in hoping to kill or set up on Tales while Hidden Power allows me to kill some Dragons right away(Example:Salamence,Dnite after Rocks damage...)


    Volcarona (M) @ Chesto Berry
    Trait: Flame Body
    EVs: 4 HP / / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Rest
    - Quiver Dance
    - Bug Buzz
    - Fiery Dance
    Sun abuser #1:Volcarona
    On Sun Volcarona is a monster(well....it is a Pocket Monster anyway but you get the point).Quiver Dance boosts my Speed,Special Defense AND Special Attack and paired with Rest it allows me to to set up on bulky water like Gastrodon,Tentacruel,Politoed and beat Chansey/Blissey which is very cool.Fiery Dance allows me to hit hard(specially on sun) and getting some more boosts while sweeping. Bug Buzz hits Water Pokemons neutraly and its Super Effective against Tyranitar.
    I know I'm not using the evs of the set but theres a good reason why.I don't want to.

    Venusaur (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
    Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SpDef)
    - Growth
    - SolarBeam
    - Eathquake
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    My Sun Abuser#2:Venusaur
    My main weapon against DD'ers.Thanks to Chlorophyll it's Speed its doubled and I dont have to wait one turn to use Solarbeam which makes it a terrifying late game sweeper.Solarbeam hits Water,Rock and Ground pokemons who usually are annoying since I'm running a Fire Mono and Hidden Power Ice usually catches Dragons off guard since they expect Hidden Power Fire.Earhtquake to kill Heatran which is a very common switch-in to venus thus letting me kill it.

    Heatran (M) @ Air Balloon
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Hp
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Flame Charge
    - Fire Blast
    - Earth Power
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    My Sun Abuser#3: Heatran
    Heatran is my third Fire type and oh good is it usefull.After 1 Flame Charge it becomes a deadly weapon as it outspeeds every non scarfed pokemon in OU bar Deoxys-S who is usually used as a suicide lead.Fire Blast on Sun hurts even pokemons who resist it and wrecks anything that doesn't except ofc some special walls.Earth Power provides great coverage which is completed by Hidden Power Ice.


    Dragonite (M) @ Lum Berry
    Trait: Multiscale
    EVs: 252 HP / 44 Atk / 212 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Fire Punch
    - Dragon Dance
    - Earthquake
    - Outrage
    My Physical attacker: Dragonite
    Dragonite is ugly and thats a fact.However this is Competitive so instead of using it's beatiful pre-evo Dragonair(<333333333)I went with the power that Dragonite provides.Since it resists Water one of my main weaknesses I find it pretty easily to switch in to Dnite and dance for a bit.Earthquake will always KO Heatran who can become annoying to this team and Outrage pwns special walls like Blissey and Chansey who are VERY annoying.Fire punch ohko'es Scizor yayyy(pty)

    Donphan (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    Aadamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Earthquake
    - Stealth Rock
    - Rapid Spin
    -Ice Sharder
    My Spinner: Donphan
    I used to have Dugtrio to set up rocks but after some thinking I decided to change Dug for Donphan since the team was very SR weak(also gives me something to lead against Sandstorm teams who usually lead with Landorus)
    Rocks and Spin for the obvious reasons(hurt my oponent on the switch-ins and to fix my SR weakness).Earthquake to hit hit hard with stab and Ice Shard to hit those Dnites and Landorus hard.

    Conclusion:
    This team did great in most of my battles and in the ones that it didn't do so good it was my fault for playing like ****
    Post a comment saying your opinion of the team keep in mind though that I've decided to retire it so changes aren't likely to happen.
