    Post Local Tournament Team

    Hey guys, I'm a pretty experienced Pokémon player (13 years under my belt,) but I'm relatively new to competitive battling. I've used this online plenty to mostly success, but I want to see if there's any improvements I could be missing.

    Cofagrigus @ Chesto Berry
    Bold Nature Mummy
    252 HP/126 Def/126 SpA
    Shadow Ball
    HP Fighting/Dark Pulse
    Rest
    Calm Mind

    Cofagrigus is one of my favorites of fifth gen, and is an excellent wall with some attacking potential. Not many people prepare for this, so it's excellent for me as a lead or a late-game sweeper.

    Tangrowth @ Leftovers
    Relaxed Nature Regenerator
    252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
    Power Whip
    Sludge Bomb
    Earthquake
    Swords Dance

    Tangrowth is another that opponents seem to not prepare for in an OU environment. He is the definition of a bulky attacker, with great attacking stats and 100/125/55 Defenses. He's certainly no special wall, but he works fantastic as a core half with Rotom-W.

    Rotom Wash Forme @ Leftovers
    Modest Nature Levitate
    248 HP/28 SpA/232 SpD
    Volt Switch
    Hydro Pump
    Pain Split
    Will-O-Wisp

    Rotom-W has the bulk for a special wall, which I usually lack. I also love his dual STAB in Volt/Pump. His low HP can be covered by a SpD EV spread and WoW.

    Scrafty @ Leftovers
    Adamant Nature Moxie
    252 HP/252 Atk/4 SpD
    Dragon Dance
    Crunch
    Hi Jump Kick
    Ice Punch

    Breeding this one was a b****, but was absolutely worth all the training, as Scrafty almost always pulls a clutch win for me when it's needed. He has the defensive bulk to take several hits and can stay longer with Leftovers. He also has perfect neutral coverage.

    Darmanitan @ Choice Scarf
    Adamant Nature Sheer Force
    252 HP/252 Atk/4 Spe
    Flare Blitz
    U-Turn
    Rock Slide
    Superpower

    This thing is a glass cannon, but god, can it sweep. STAB Force-boosted Flare Blitz off Darm's massive base Attack destroys almost everything in one hit. It may not be able to take a hit, but why would it need to when it OHKOs anything without a 4x Resistance.

    Ditto @ Choice Scarf
    Hardy Nature Imposter
    252 HP
    Transform

    A clutch revenge killer. I love this thing to death.

    I've been thinking of running Wobb (my favorite Poke) or Vaporeon (for Acid Armor/Baton Pass/Wish/Scald fun).
    Tell me what you think! Every decision here is justified.

    I do love me some Spiritomb and Sudowoodo, though.

    Scrafty's EV's should probably be changed since you're using DD. It's 110 / 110 DEfenses are good enough, so I suggest mxing Speed. Drain Punch is an option instead of HJK to heal.

    Alternatively you could try a Bulk Up variant:

    • Scrafty @ Leftovers
    • Adamant
    • Shed Skin
    • 252 Hp / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
    - Drain Punch
    - Crunch
    - Bulk Up
    - Rest

    ShedRest is the main strategy to keep you healthy while setting up. Your two STAB's are only resisted by Toxicroak, which isn't too common. Keep in mind you can change the EV's around but that's probably the best Spread.

    Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
    I know if I go, I'll die happy tonight
