The Competitive Rate My Team of Competitive Rate My Teamess
Hello all, I used to eat Durants, aka a Duranteater but I became a boss in December. Welcome to my Competitive Rate My Team, where you rate my team. Hence why I made one, I'm your boss. This is an OU Team I developed over the past weeks and tested it out. Results weren't too shabby but I feel it needs a bit more work and that's why your all here to rate and pinpoint out any mistakes.
Da Team Preview
EVs: 252 sp att/252 Speed/4 HP
This washing machine is feared as a killing machine in the rain. With great bulk and typing, no wonder this guy is the best out of the Rotom appliances. He is my lead 98% of the time and my VoltTurn partner with Scizor. Trick is a cool toy that can cripple Ferrothorn, Forretress, Mamoswine and other Physical threats, taking their item in place of the Specs. Hydro Pump however equipped with Specs is deadly on anything that doesn't resist it. Volt Switch gives me some hit and run damage, allowing to send in a counter of choice. Hidden Power Grass is there for opposing washing machines, and Gastrodon. Nature is Timid to grasp more speed, which is necessary to outspeed base 80's and other stuff, rather then Modest to increase more power. EVs are there for maximum Speed and sp attack.
Thundurus-T@ Choice Scarf
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 speed/252 sp attack/4 HP
Dat tail! This serpent thing is one of the most greatest revenge killers and that is what he does best. With a Timid Nature and Scarf attached, he is able to outspeed quite a number of OU mons. Thunderbolt is my STAB over Thunder and stills does a fair amount of damage with that hot 145 sp attack. Focus Blast hits Terrakion, Ferrothorn, Mamoswine and other related OU mons hard while hurting the blobs quite a bit. Psychic is another coverage move for taking down weak Fighting types like Conkeldurr and friends. Hidden Power Ice rounds it out, annihilating Gliscor, opposing Thundurus-T, and both Landorus formes. Timid is to outspeed rather than more power, EVs are set to increase Speed and sp attack.
Hydreigon@ Expert Belt
EVs: 252 sp attack/252 speed/ 4 Attack
With the introduction of Superpower in BW2, Hydreigon now has the ability to dent his worst counters, Chansey, Blissey and Heatran. Mixdreigon is crazy fun because of the myriad coverage he posseses. Draco Meteor is still my main STAB and allows me to dent weakened Dragonite, Garchomp and just plow through others like Conkeldurr. Fire Blast roasts Scizor, Ferrothorn and Forretress who would wall me. Roost is a cool toy that gives me more survivability. Mild is to not have my attacking stat decrease and EVs to maximize Sp attack and Speed. Rest is dumped into Attack for Superpower.
Conkeldurr@ Flame Orb
EVs: 252 Attack/252 HP/4 speed
I like this clown. He packs a punch with 140 Attack and Guts. Ice Punch also was a little god send to eliminate Gliscor and Landorus formes. After Guts activates, **** is gonna get real with his STABs. Mach Punch is a great priority move with nice coverage, weakening Terrakion, Ferrothorn, Gastrodon, Kyurem, Kyurem-B and more! Drain Punch gives me another punch to hit foes hard while gaining lost HP back. Ice Punch again hits Gliscor, and Landorus formes while striking through Garchomp and other Dragons. Payback can help me beat on Reuniclus and friends and has great coverage with Fighting. Adamant is to maximize his Attack more. EVs are given to increase durability and Attack.
Scizor@ Choice Band
EVs: 252 Attack/248 HP/8 speed
Meet one of the premier Choice Band users. Scizor comes with a fabulous typing and ability in the name of Technican. Add Bullet Punch and you got a Pokémon who can punch wholes into teams. Bullet Punch hits Tyranitar, Terrakion, both Kyurem formes, and other non resisting mons hard. U-turn is to hit and run, denting holes in teams at the same time. Plus it completes my VoltTurn core with Rotom-W. Pursuit catches any Espeon, Gengar, Latios, Latias, etc who would love to escape from his horror. Superpower is to pummel Ferrothorn and a few others related that would wall him. Nature is Adamant for Attack boosts. EVs are given for a more bulkier route while retaining 252 attack EVs.
Heatran@ Air Balloon
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 sp attack/252 speed/4 HP
Wait Flame Charge Heatran? Yep, this set is viable due to allowing him to outpace a lot more OU mons (not good with outspeed calcs) after a boost. Key is to set up on something that can't touch it like Ferrothorn or Skarmory. Then after a boost, his other moves do the rest. Fire Blast is the main STAB to cook a lot of things like Scizor, Skarmory, Thundurus-T, Conkeldurr and more snacks. Earth Power beats Jolteon and friends. HP Ice is there to stop Gliscor, Dugtrio, Thundurus-T, Tornadus-T and Landorus formes. Timid is for more speed and EVs are given to maximize Speed and Sp attack.
Whelp that's the team guys/gals/genderless beings. Feel free to give constructive criticism and find out any flaws. Thanks for looking at this too.
