Hey Serebii, how you doing? Not sure how many of you guys from way back are out there, but just to let you know that I'm back, though I'm not sure how regularly I'll be on. Thanks for everything, and I hope I can continue to enjoy my time here!

Looking for any breedable flawless Pokemon!
I disagree. Camurupt sucks in OU, and, iirc, enigma berry is unreleased in gen 5.quite the team. tho, i would swap trio for somethin a bit better. maybe a bulky camurupt? holding enigma berry?I, too, agree with keeping Dugtrio. Though once I think about it, Gliscor could also work, but is beaten by mixtar.Anyway, I'd say, contary to others' opinion, that you should keep Dugtrio, its revenge killing prowess is to valuabe to lose, especially on a sun team.

okay, don't get rid of dugtrio... it destroys ttar and heatran easily, which are two major obstacles for a sun team. i do have a suggestion for a spinner though...
you could try an HP fire starmie over your current venusaur. it remains obscenely fast and able to take out dragons while adding spin support to the rest of your team. What you lose in offensive power by taking out venusaur is made up for by volc becoming many times more threatening.
252 sp.atk, 252 speed, 4 hp
also, chesto rest>sub volc tbh
^Don't ever use a water type on a sun team. It's STAB is split in half, and the one you are suggesting doesn't even have STAB...Starmie is also out sped by +1 dragons, while +2 Venasaur isn't.

What about claydol as its a good rapid spinner as its immune to the spikes and resists stealth rock. It can also set up dual screens which will help setting up. It does wonders for bulky volcarona but heatran walls it. Claydol could use earthpower I think with STAB it has a high chance of killing heatran. Not to sure on what to give up.
k guys my computer isnt working and im really lazy to respond all of your suggestions BUT i did read each and everyone of them and im considering some
when i get my computer fixed ill select the top 10(or 5 depending on my mood )and may change a thing or two
so far im thinking of: taking ab2's advice and about changing volcarona's set
id also like to thank you all for trying to help except gold because you only bragged about beating the team even tho by then i still wasnt aware of its weaknesses
Super offensive team is super and offensive.
This looks essentially like HO without a screen abuser. Which is bad. Your bulkiest pokemon is D-Nite, which after rocks damage can be KO'ed by anything running a decent Ice Attack/ Draco Meteor, and can't heal itself. Imo, you should use something for wish support, or switch up your DNite set to use roost.

Wow, you have a high ranking. Mabye sometime i should make a good team sometime. Great team, just needs a rapid spinner.
New Bible Verse of the Week: Zephaniah 2:3
Seek the Lord, all you humble of the earth who have carried out His ordinances; seek righteousness, seek humility. Perhaps you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
Uhh.. Power Herb Ninetales? Not so sure it works like you say..
Solarbeam has 60 BP in Rain / Sand. Neither Tyranitar nor Politoed are even close to OHKOed by this. If your plan is to hammer incoming Pokes with a grass move in non-friendly weather you might as well just use Energy Ball and run Leftovers. Maybe run a more standard set, or just offensive max speed Timid could work (assuming you play Dugtrio well).
Iactually love this team, I dont really see many flaws to it, maybe just a good rain stall can be alittle problematic butwith the great set on ninetails I dont see much of a problem there.
Great time you have here and congratulations for your peak!!
Solarbeam (in sunlight)
vs 0/0 Politoed: 59.8% - 70.4%
vs 0/0 Tyranitar: 56.3% - 66.3%
Solarbeam (in rain / sand)
vs 0/0 Politoed: 29.9% - 35.5%
vs 0/0 Tyranitar: 19.4% - 22.9%
Unless Pokemon Online has a glitch that doesn't include the damage halving mechanic. Ninetales is very weak. Might as well just run Energy Ball to hit both Pokemon 33% harder while letting you use an actually useful item.
But no Ninetales does not match up well at all against Politoed. To beat it you need to use hit and run or Dugtrio.
