    Default Boiling rain

    Hey everyone, due to a lack of battling on PO lately, and not wanting to lose my edge, I've decided to make a team for random match up. This means I will have a maximum of 3 pokemon at any given time, so I've decided to split this team into 3 groups, however almost every poke can be put with another, so without further introduction, let's see the team;

        Spoiler:- team preview:

    The flames of war

    Ninetails @ wide lens
    252 sp atk 252 spd 4 hp
    Fire Blast
    Will o wisp

    I forgot to mention, this is a dual weather team, which made me give a lot of thought into each poke. I gave it wide lense for an accuracy boost. Calm nature is because I already have an EV trained drought ninetales with this nature, and a little extra bulk never hurt.

    Tangrowth @ muscle band
    52 hp 252 atk 204 spd
    Power whip
    Brick break

    Due to not having a dw venusaur, I needed a strong chlorophyll use for my sun side. However he can be used on the rain side of my team due to his bulk, and one of his weaknesses being weakened by the rain. Return is for hitting dragons, EV's give him some bulk, some speed, and a good amount of offensive force.

    Cleansing Rain

    politoed @ wise glasses
    56 hp 224 sp Atk 224 spd
    Focus blast
    Ice beam
    Hp electric/toxic/hp grass

    My second weather starter, not nearly as foxy as ninetales, but it will do. Wise glasses allows me to switch moves while having an offensive presence. Ev's give me some bulk, while (once again) leaving me an offensive presence. Last moveslot I'm divided on. Hp electric hits Gyarados, hp grass hits swampert and gastrodon, while toxic could hit both, but will take time to work.

    Mamoswine @expert belt
    Snow cloak
    4 hp 252 atk 252 spd
    Ice shard
    Rock slide
    Stealth rock

    You might be very confused as why I put my mamoswine as my politoed back up, the explanation is simple, he can take on electric types (switch in included) and politoeds other weakness, grass types (need to be careful with these). He also works well with the other weather by taking out any dragons the other two couldn't. Stealth rock is filler in case your wondering.

    The mercenaries

    Sableye @leftovers
    252 hp 100 def 152 sp def
    Will o wisp
    Night shade

    I decided I wanted an annoyed on my team, I forgot who used this on me, but it's not bad. On either team it can stop a physical attacker cold. It's even more important for taking out something like Dragonite, will o wisp will forever break it's scale AND half it's attack. Toxic is more for walls however. Recover is recover, and night shade is so I'm not taunt bait.

    Salamence @ life orb
    128 atk 128 sp ATk 252 spd
    Dragon claw

    If you have ever looked at my go to salamence set, you will realize this is not it. However I am guaranteed a psuedo stab with this team if their are no weather wars, and that is amazing, especially since 9/10 times I pack flamethrower for skarmory, I can now use surf instead.

    So their you have it, this team can be mix and matched in so many ways I think I should be able to go into the random battles with my head held high.
