    Yes, i always thought Darmanitan and Victina are better then Arcanine but any fire type will do.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I thought about my team again and decided to remove Skarmory and Virizion from my team. I thought about adding a Tyranitar to set up Stealth Rock, but then I realised that my team would be vulnerable to an oppositions Infernape. So I decided to remove Scizor as well. I still need someone to set-up entry hazards but i'm stuck between Ferrothorn and Forretress

    Forretress spins, but Ferros defences are great. But Forry has Sturdy. Go Forretress, as it has 1 weakness, Fire, and can spin away hazards and set some up.

    Me and a friend of mine are making Rain and Drizzle teams. I'm making Sun, with:

    Ninetales@ Leftovers
    Timid | Drought
    ??? EVs
    ~Flamethrower
    ~Energy Ball
    ~?
    ~?

    Yeah I'm clueless.

    Hi guys, first time of posting on here after previously just reading.

    I'm looking to make a battling team and am struggling at the moment with a lot of things still to get my head around.

    I'll just jump straight into it my team as it stands has:

    Starmie @ Leftovers
    Natural Cure
    EVs 252 SpAtt/252Spd/4HP
    Timid (+Spd - Att)
    - Thunderbolt
    - Ice Beam
    - Recover
    - Rapid Spin

    Haxorus @ Dragon Gem?
    Mold Breaker
    EVs 252 Att/252Spd
    Adamant (i think)

    - Swords Dance
    - Dragon Dance
    - Earthquake
    - Dragon Claw

    Archeops @ Flying Gem?
    Defeatist
    EVs 252 Att/252 Spd
    Jolly Nature

    - Acrobatics
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Slide
    - Fly (I know but i used it in game and don't have any ideas for this spot)

    I also have a Jellicent and a Volcarona but they seem to give my team too many weaknesses, what would you guys suggest to help me with this team?

  11. #86

    Default

    Give Haxorus Lum Berry/Life Orb > Dragon Gem.

    Give Archeops U-turn or HP Ice and a Naive nature (Only if you go with HP Ice) over Fly.

    Volcarona seems to work nice in the team. Gives it a nifty Ice resistance.

    - Close Combat

    I don't really like Scarfed Infernape's but I'm gonna try it out. As for Gliscor should I go for Bulky Sweeper or Defensive Gliscor?
    Lastly, what should I get for my 5th and 6th pokemon?

    Defensive. If Ferro is gone you'll still be able to take on Dragons for a bit, with Gliscors high defense.

    Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 248 HP / 16 Def / 244 SDef
    Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
    - Brave Bird
    - Roost
    - Stealth Rock
    - Whirlwind

    Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
    Trait: Poison Heal
    EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 Spd
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Fang
    - Swords Dance
    - Taunt

    And for a special sweeper, and another fighting resist, we have...

    Reuniclus (F) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 192 HP / 64 Def / 252 SAtk
    Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
    - Psyshock
    - Trick Room
    - Shadow Ball
    - Focus Blast

    I honestly have no idea how good this team will actually work, but it seems nice. Stall team consisting of Skarm, Ferro, Rotom, and Gliscor. While Infernape & Reuniclis sweep with high speed. The hazards that the stallers set up really help Nape net certain KO's that it's 337 attack stat may not be able to kill. It also has a nice Volt-Turn Synergy with Rotom-w.

    Wouldn't Alakazam or Gengar do a better job of sweeping

    They're both really frail. Reuniclus' is bulky offensive, and with TR up is much more of a threat. Gengar & Alakazam fall to any form of priority. But because of Reuniclus' high HP and moderate defense priority won't be a problem.

    So, sweeping, in some forms yes. Being able to sweep a whole team while a Scizor is still around? No. And with SR + Spikes Focus Blast KO'es even Max HP Scizor with no special EV's.

    So yeah, Life Orb on Starmie (as soon as you get it).
    I would suggest Dugtrio for Stealth Rock and the big Electric weakness (yay, you can have Jellicent!, as well as taking care of the occasional Rock type.
    @ Focus Sash
    Jolly
    Arena Trap
    252 Attack and Speed
    -Earthquake
    -Sucker Punch/Stone Edge
    -Sucker Punch/Stealth Rock
    -Hone Claws/Stealth Rock
    Up to you how you go with it, I would just suggest you choose between these moves.
    If you want a wall, Jellicent works well. Here's one of the better Jellicent sets:
        Spoiler:- Jelli:

    You can really go almost any way with Jellicent's EVs.

    Thanks, my Jellicent currently has Surf,Recover,Will-o-wisp and Shadow ball. I'll test your version out as well.
    Dugtrio looks like a great choice and is one of my favourite pokemon, I didn't know it could use stealth rock. Thanks

    OK, so here's my currently planned UU team:

    Swampert @ Leftovers
    Torrent
    EVs 128 HP/100 Atk/150 Def/4 Sp. Atk/128 Spe. Def
    Brave
    -Earthquake
    -Ice Beam
    -Waterfall
    -Stealth Rock

    Unusual EV spread allows it to sweep and setup rocks. Brave because Swampert is slow anyway. Ice Beam is for Tangrowth, who otherwise walls this set. The extra 4 Sp. Atk is for a guaranteed OHKO on Tangrowth.


    Flygon @ Choice Scarf
    Levitate
    EVs 252 ATK/252 Spe/4 HP
    Jolly
    -U-turn
    -Outrage
    -Earthquake
    -Fire Punch
    Standard Flygon. I'm using Jolly over Adamant because Speed is Flygon's best asset. Tends to force a lot of switches.

    Shaymin @ Leftovers
    Natural Cure
    EVs 252 Sp. Atk/252 Spe
    Timid
    -Giga Drain
    -Protect
    -Earth Power
    -Air Slash
    Protect allows me to stall for Leftovers recovery. Giga Drain is there for even more recovery and reliable STAB. Earth Power and Air Slash are there for coverage.

    Darmanitan @ Life Orb
    Magic Guard
    EVs 252 ATK/252 Spe
    Adamant
    -Brick Break
    -Flare Blitz
    -Earthquake
    -Stone Edge
    This set aims to hit as hard and as fast as possible. Edge is for Flyers and gives this set a nice edgequake combo. Brick Break is there for reliability. Flare Blitz is for STAB and hits Bronzong HARD.

    Yeah, this is obviously a noob set. Can anyone please help?

    No. Surf, Scald, or Hydro Pump would be the best option. Most likely Scald since he's your Rapid Spinner. I'd also say, stay with Lefties. You don't want to lose 10% because of, basically, a utility move.

    I'd also like to say, don't use Dugtrio. Dugtrio's only use is on weather teams that need to trap and KO the other weather starter. That's the ONLY reason he's OU. And even with that, not very high on the ladder. There are much better choices. Even Nidoqueen who's UU is better. It doesn't have 35/50/75 defensive stats. That just stinks. Swampert is another ground type that can set up rocks. And it can take 2 or 3 hits.

    Hi guys,

    I'm doing one of those tournaments on Smogon where its best of 3 and each round is a different tier. I need help deciding on a sixth pokemon for my UU team. any advice you have or if you spot a weakness I overlooked would be helpful.
    Thanks,
    STABX4

        Spoiler:- The Team:
    You have a weakness to attacks in general. Azelf if frail. Houndoom is VERY frail. Sceptile is frail. They all fall to priority except Azelf to fighting priority. I really recommend getting some type of defensive backbone. Rather that be Registeel of Nidoqueen. Change Azelfs Item. Only having one attacks turns it into much more of a Gimmick than an attack with a CB.

    Hey, I'm making a OU offensive team on a deadly sweeper who is actually in UU:

    Yanmega@ Choice Specs
    Modest | Tinted Lens
    252 SpA | 252 Spe | 4 Def
    ~Air Slash
    ~Bug Buzz
    ~U Turn
    ~Giga Drain/HP Ground

    Yes, the mighty Yanmega. Tinted Lens means that you do not want to be hit by a not very effective move. Choice Specs adds on the Pain. Bug Buzz 2HKOs Heatran and Skarmory. We don't need coverage.

    Only Problem: We're weak to Stealth Rock.
