    Default Subway Night Watch


    This team is named after some characters in Discworld by Terry Pratchett. My Love for this team is the great Synergy and how I get to use pretty cool pokemon(bronzong).



    Mesprit *Rincewind* @Focus Sash
    EVs: 252HP/4Def/252Spe
    Nature: Jolly
    Ability (Levitate)
    ~ Lucky Chant
    ~ Thunderwave
    ~ Charm
    ~ Flash

    Classic cripple no trick due to them switching out too much



    Garchomp *Capitain Vimes* @Choice Scarf
    EVs: 252 Att /100 SDef/158 SpD
    Nature: Modest
    Ability (Sand Veil)
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Outrage
    ~ Fire Fang
    ~ Aerial Ace

    Clear up anything Bronzong can't pretty much out speeds everything it needs to.



    Bronzong *Corporal Nobbs* @ Leftovers
    EVs: 252HP/252SpA/4Spe
    Nature: Modest
    Ability (Levitate)
    ~ Substitute
    ~ Iron Defense
    ~ Calm Mind
    ~ Flash Cannon

    Just love this set so much and Nobbs typing fits perfectly! Flash Cannon hits everything and once set up is a complete beast

    So rate away go mad..


    got 75 proof hereee

    Have you ever considered Gyro Ball on Bronzong,because it does tons of damage against fast oponents.
    It's an odd set:I'd personally pick one defence and go for it,but it works well with a substitute and leftovers-I don't see much wrong with that.

    What do you hope to achieve with aerial ace?Is it there purely for evasive opponents?
    Wouldn't a lifeorb perhaps be of more use on Terrakion? 90% accurate rockslide is great,but 99% doesn't really change much at all.Although I understand that the lack of accuracy on the subway is the thing that costs players games,so I suppose it's your say again.It's not a flamethrower/fireblast sacrifice,really!

    But you're right-the synergy is excellent.I-at the moment-can't see many holes in it,so well done

    The thing is Bronzong is my Special attacker another thing Bronzong doesn't learn curse and calm mind seems much more viable.

    Aerial Ace is partly filler but also useful for evasion like you say.

    I did debate not using Wide Lens and then using Sacred Sword. So i think i'll get rid of Close Combat and use sacred sword still don't really won't to use life orb due to health lose so not sure if to go for air balloon or stick to wide lens

    cheers for the rate

    Rock Slide is an option >Fire Fang since it provides QuakeSlide coverage , which is a good combo. Fire Fang and Earthquake will provide similiar coverage in tandem with Outrage. Also , Dragon Claw can be used >Outrage since it's still a solid STAB but without the Confusion.

    Without Scarf support, don't expect that Bronzong to live too long. It just barely does its job with Scarf Support.

    I might get rid of Garchomp and replace with this Mesprit that I already have the synergy in the team still remains which is good.

    You might as well use Trick+Choice Scarf if you're going to use Mesprit.

    Well you'll probably need Trick for Bronzong to function properly , so you'll need to choose one of the three moves to remove ; Lucky Chant , Charm or Flash.

    Care to explain the EVs on Garchomp? They look to be tailored to outrun certain things, but it's hard to tell at a glance. Why not 100 HP>100 Sp. Def?

    I started using one with the 100 hp over the s.def but after looking at a post by Peterko in smogon it is explain why s.def is more useful.
    I quote

    "After extensive usage I revised the spread and lowered Speed to boost Special Defense. Always survives two 200 spA Flash Cannons from Magnezone (or a CH). Also, now doesn´t give a Download boost to nasty Porygons.

    thoughts about boosting HP or sD
