    Default Unicorn Rotation Team

    With the second release of Keldeo I finally got my hands on that little blue pony. Because I like horses in general I decided to put together a fun team of Pokemon unicorns - Zebstrika, Rapidash and Keldeo as part of a rotation team for use on random wifi battles (sadly no PWT or VGCs as Keldeo is banned). And thus I present you:

    Keldeo w/leftovers
    Nature: Bold
    Ability: Justified
    EV: 4 HP, 252 SpA, 252 Spe
    -Secret Sword
    -Calm Mind?
    -Aqua Jet

    Aqua jet as my team doesn't have any priority attacks. Surf over hydro pump because I loathe low accuracy moves and I'd rather sacrifice power over the possibility of a move missing - my pokemon always have a knack for missing at the most inappropriate times so I'm extremely cautious with low accuracy moves. Ice beam and secret sword for coverage.

    Zebstrika w/Air balloon
    Nature: Naive
    Ability: Lightningrod
    EVs: 200 Attack, 75 SpA, 229 Sp
    -Volt switch
    -Wild charge
    -Flame charge

    Air balloon to scout for potential ground moves. If the opponent carries one, I'll just volt switch it out. Naive nature so both attack and special attack can be boosted. Since this guy generally won't stay in battle for long, the drop from overheat won't be too bad. Wild charge to boost his speed.

    Thowra, Rapidash w/life orb
    Nature: Naive
    Ability: Flash Fire
    EVs: 200 Attack, 52 SpA, 252 Spe
    -Morning sun
    -Flare blitz

    My trophy Pokemon. Again, he is a mixed attacker. Due to both life orb and potential recoil from flare blitz he has morning sun to heal off all damage.

    And now for the support pokes:

    Exeggutor w/sitrus berry
    Nature: Bold
    Ability: Harvest
    EVs: 252HP, 120 Def, 84 SpA, 52 SpD
    -Sunny Day
    -Leech Seed
    -Leaf Storm
    -Power trick

    Sunny Day to get harvest to work 100% as well as help Rapidash's morning sun and solarbeam, and Zebstrika's flame charge and overheat. When it's SpA drops due to leaf storm, I can use power trick and swap it with the opponent's and cripple them.

    Kingdra w/haban berry
    Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Swift Swim
    EVs: 252 Attack, 4 SpD, 252 Spe
    -Rain Dance
    -Dragon Dance

    Rain dance to support Keldeo (yes, I'm running two different weathers on this team) as well as its own Waterfall, and hopefully hax can come into play and flinch the opponent. Dragon dance to boost its attack, and outrage to remove pesky opposing dragons

    Shedinga w/focus sash
    Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Wonder Guard
    EVs: 255 Attack, 255 Spe
    -Shadow claw

    The paper tiger.
    Or not.
    In truth though, Sheddy will rarely ever be used. He's there to play mind games. Because it's for rotation battles, just HAVING shedinja on the side will make the opponent sweat with terror. What if Rapidash is out, will they still use hydro pump if they know I can freely rotate in Sheddy and burn/poison them? Hail and sandstorm won't be a problem as Kingdra and Exeggutor can both remove harmful weather. Focus sash for any surprise super effective KOs. Protect to survive after losing focus sash. Shadow claw to prevent it from becoming taunted.

    Aaaaaand that's my team.

    While I am happy to switch out Exeggutor, Kingdra and Shedinja for any pokes, the three unicorns stay. They're the theme of this team so I can't lose them. Aside from that, rate away! Thanks!
