As VGC Regionals is happening soon, i decided to post my team and get opinions on it from the experts.
As this is VGC, it is in Doubles Format.
If you find anything that could be replaced, or moves to be changed, ect. Please do state them.
Garchomp @ Life Orb
Ability: Sand Veil
EVs: 252 Att, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, - SPA)
- Dragon Claw
- Rock Slide
The Strong side of the Gar-Cress combo, Garchomp is a complete monster in VGC, Wrecking a fair amount of the Pokemon in the Tier.
With this set it gets fair coverage, and protect provides a turn to scout or block an attack.
Under sand it's evasion is boosted, giving it a fair chance to survive an otherwise fatal hit.
Cresselia @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 Defense, 240 Special Defense, 8 HP
Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack)
- Icy Wind
The other half of the Gar-Cress combo, Cresselia icy winds the opposing team, slowing them, letting garchomp and the rest of my team outspeed and hopefully KO the opponent's Team.
Protect is staple on a VGC team, letting Cress block an opposing attack to it, and heal.
Moonlight is used to provide a quick heal, while swagger shuts down special attackers, like Politoad and Latios.
Tyranitar @ Chople Berry
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs 252 Attack, 252 Defense, 4 Special Defense
Nature: Adamant (+ attack, - SPA)
- Rock Slide
- Thunder Wave
Tyranitar is my weather setter, setting up sand stream to mess with the opponent's weather and help with Garchomp.
This is mostly an offensive set, while Thunder Wave is used to stop the opponents dead in their tracks, Protect is staple, while Crunch and Rockslide Provide decent stab coverage.
Breeloom @ Fighting Gem
EVs: 255 Attack, 255 Speed,
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - SPA)
- Bullet Seed
- Mach Punch
- Swords Dance
Breeloom is a beast in VGC, stopping a lot of pokes like Hydreigon and Politoad, and deals out a whopping amount of damage with a Stab gem boosted Mach Punch.
With it's fast speed, it can spore the opponent, then set up to sweep.
Amazingly Breeloom has fair Synergy with Cresselia, taking out Cress's threats.
Heatran @ Air Balloon
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 SPA, 252 Speed, 4 Defense
Nature: Hasty (+ speed, - Defense)
- Lava Plume
- Earth Power
- Iron Head
Heatran is very helpful VS those dragons, sponging hits and dealing out a ton.
The first thing you might ask is: WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU PUT IRON HEAD?!?!
Iron Head has a 30% flinch chance, and other wise heatran walls like Blissey get hammered by an Iron Head.
The other moves are pretty basic on a heatran.
Heatran can switch in when they try to Hurt Breeloom, take the fire/flying damage, and retaliate back.
Air Balloon is so an Earthquake wont kill it, and allows it to partner with Garchomp.
Hydreigon @ Expert Belt
EVs: 252 speed, 252 special attack, 4 HP
Nature: timid (+ speed, - attack)
- Earth Power
- Fire Blast
- Dark Pulse
- Draco Meteor
Hydreigon finds a spot on nearly all of my teams, it has great coverage, bulk, and a nice special stat.
Hydreigon and Breeloom also have great synergy, crashing and bashing through everything thrown at them.
With the nature and EV's it allows other Hydreigons to be outsped by mine and then KO'd by Draco Meteor.
And over all Hydreigon does well in VGC.
