Well hello people! A short while ago I worked on my first OU team and posted it here on serebii. In the meanwhile it has changed quite allot, so much that it can be called a completely different team. Thats why I will now post another RMT thread hoping you guys can perfect it for me! This team aims to be a balanced team with a mix of very solid crippling walls (the bouncy pinks), and a few hard hitting behemoths The hot-head reds). So let's take a look shall we?
(Mew) @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 224 Def / 32 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
Our first bouncing pink pokemon. This together with Blissey is the defensive core of my team. together they can wall nearly everything. In this case mew is the defensive wall and my lead. Taunt to break loads of leads and will o wisp to cripple attackers and soft boiled to heal, which isnt to hard when forcing switches. Nearly no normal attacker can break mew and will o wisp makes it worse. and if pokes cant handle and you predict a switch, will o wisp to burn the incoming mon. Taunt deals with setup sweepers and walls, making it's only real difficulty special attackers (which blissey can wall with ease) or status (which synchronize likes to bounce back) Psychic is there to deal some dmg to crippled physical attackers and taunted walls.
(Blissey) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Stealth Rock
- Seismic Toss
Here is our second bouncy pink wall. As mew deals with pretty much anything physically, blissey is there to switch in and wall nearly anything special. Changed wish support set for stealth rock set. Helps against Dnite if not too late and since the walls force quite some switches, SR might be better Toxic is there to cripple special attackers and different walls, while seismic toss can deal dmg when needed, or on predicted switch ins who are already burned or poisoned. Biggest problem Blissey faces is Gengar, which can't be touched by blissey, and mew isn't a save switch in.
(Latias) (F) @ Life Orb
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Draco Meteor
The last Pinky bouncy... Well, more red actually. Latias role on the other hand is pretty much in between. Latias is overall one of my main special sweepers, pretty straight forward with life orb, draco meteor, surf and psyschock (to deal with high Spdef pokes) and recover to fill health of latias her excellent bulk. Besides the attacking role it can also take quite some special hit, while having to be less afraid for psyschock of other pokes or secret sword which both Blissey fears. So Latias pretty much fills both roles, but still feels least fitting on the team. Yet there aren't much special bulky special sweepers who do as good as latias do. Some physical attackers might do, but my team already has enough of those.
Genius (Landorus) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Earth Power
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Rock Polish
Enough withthe cute little walls, time to get to the cool guys, the offensive behemoths of my team. Here is the first member of the red hot-heads! (well actually more orange but w/e). His role is simply to hit hard with great coverage and EQ resistance which makes it easier to switch in. Sheer force and life orb boosts his attacks massively making switch in getting big dents aswell, and most of the time able to take a hit before dying. HP Ice for coverage to deal with pesky dragons (which my team still gets crippled by) and rock polish to boost his mediocre speed on switches to outspeed potent switched in threats.
(Gyarados, shiny) (M) @ Leftovers
EVs: 176 HP / 128 Atk / 204 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
One of my favorite pokemons and def one of the strongest. A bulky DD Gyrados does awesome on this team. Switching on walls, taunting them and setting up a DD on switch. Also because of bulky, possible to take a hit or 2 for DDing some more. Taunt can also be used to simply ruin walls and then switch. Waterfall as main powerful stab, and bounce as coverage move, which even with the turn waiting hurt allot and may even paralyze.
Conkelderp (Conkeldurr, shiny) (M) @ Flame Orb
EVs: 128 HP / 252 Atk / 128 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Drain Punch
- Mach Punch
Last offensive pokemon is flame orb conkeldurr. Pretty straight forward set. Mach punch for priority, boosted by guts and his massive attack is always painfull. The fact of not having to worry about other status being induces is also pretty handy. drain punch for recovering health, facade for coverage and big dmg with burn, and payback to deal with ghosts.
The team has done ok mostly with the stalling between mew and Blissey. Gyrados also plays an important role with having taunt as as bulky sweeper. Yet the biggest troubles are (so far I've seen) Gengar, dragons (mostly Dnite). I also get the feeling Latias doesn't really fir in the puzzle like she should. Yet, like described before, can't really figure out which poke could do better. Conkeldurr is kinda a pokemon I really want on this team since I got one exactly like this on my black game (the team is PO, but gonna make it on Wi-Fi when finished) But I feel like it there are better options so ideas for replacments welcome!. Landorus overall does well, but wouldn't mind him being replaced if needed.
