Well here I am with one of my first real OU tries. I started OU a long time ago, but before I settled with a team I descended to the fun Monotype tier to fool around with my mono Ice team. Now that X and Y are coming up, it's time for me to start playing OU again! But the cold isolation of monotype made me a complete noob in the OU tier! Thus, I came here to ask for help, ideas. etc. The first 3 pokemon can be completely changed. Last 3 can too, but they working kinda well, for now. So enough talking! let's take a look, shall we?
Microwave, Magnezone @ Choice Specs
Ability: Magnet Pull
EVs: Spe 108, SAtk 252, HP 148
- Volt Switch
- Hidden Power (fire)
- Flash Cannon
I tried a few "leads" already, and non seemed to work. Set up sweepers got beat before setting up, and trick leads like spikers or something also got outdone. Like their leads where always the exact opposite of mine. Thought a taunter would work, but he does his job, faints, and useless after that. So so far this one did the best. Come in, hit hard with volt switch, and switch to something that can handle their lead while still giving a hard hit. The set can also be used to switch in too quite some things and kill them afterwards or deal quite some dmg. Don't ask me about the EV spread. Took it from Smogon, no idea why they are liek they are.
Weepweep!, Latias @ Life Orb
EVs: Satk 252, Spe 252
- Draco meteor
Latias, even without EVs in her defenses, can still receive quite a punch and can switch in on quite some things. After that with quite good speed and sp attack it can pretty much blow through anything with these moves, while recovering on stalling pokemon who just can't know latias out.
Genius (get it? Geni-us. Oh I'm so hilarious), Landorus @ Life Orb
Ability: Sand Force (not using sheer force since I wana make it in my Black game someday, but fighting PO now)
EVs: Satk 252, Spe 252
- Earth Power
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power Ice
- Grass Knot
Speaks for itself. Simple muscle power that tears trough quite allot, and from the special attackers that I've tried this one worked the best so far, but open for ideas. Took Grass Knot on the set in order to hit those pesky bulky waters that switches in on landorus, but it's never enough dmg, so probarblly have to replace that one.
Conkelderp, Conkeldurr @ Flame Orb
EVs: Atk 252,
- Drain Punch
- Mach Punch
One of my favorite sets. Simple way of packing a hard punch without setting up, and without worrying about getting status problems. Drain puch heals, and anything that doesnt deserver drain punch might make conkel die earlier, but they will die too. Mach punch for priority, payback for ghosts, drain for health, facade for massive flame orb dmg.
Quak!, Quaqsire @ Leftovers
EVs: HP 252, Sdef 252
I never ever thought that a NU pokemon would be so awesome in OU. This has crippled so many teams for me already. Quagsires unaware simply renders some pokemon useless as they remain weak unboosted. This mixed with good defenses, recover, and yawn to force switches and gain recovers is just amazing. Scald cripples with burn wich makes even easier to heal vs physical sweepers, and EQ to deal a bit of dmg. So yeah, as set up sweepers hurted my team allot, this weak looking Unaware abuser is a golden asset too my team!
Nyaa~, Female, Gyrados @ Leftover
EVs: Atk 128 HP, 176, Spe 204
- Dragon Dance
Isn't she cute? Bulky Physical sweepster. Without setup it can still hard and take hits himself. Timed well, with 2 or even 1 DD it can atleast punt big dents in big threats. Normally the set said use stone edge, but EQ seemed better to hit switch ins with for gyrados. Taunt to destroy pesky walls hindering my little girl and maybe get a free DD out of that.
The 7th pokemon
Mew @ Leftovers
EVs: HP 252, Def 224, Spe 32
- Seismic toss/Psychic
Why a 7th pokemon? Well, I just received this beauty after ALLOT of trading via wi-fi. If possible I want this little beauty in my team, but don't know if it'll fit in. If you people can think possibilities for it in my team, feel free to share. Just puttin it in.
So, thats what I got for now. Thats the team I have for now. still really new and fragile, but I'm sure that with a bit of help of you guys, it can come to something cool
