So yeah I'm not very good at titles, but that doesn't matter!
This is an offensive OU team for Pokemon Showdown that i recently put together and would like help with. You may remember my rain team from not so long ago, but i felt like a change!
Here are some videos of me using the team:
There's only two for now because PS decided it didn't want to save the others but i have won two more. I'll post more videos so you can see how i use the team and its biggest flaws soon!
So here is my team:
This was the first poke I chose. When looking through possible pokes to build a team around I came across this guy and was like YES what a beast. An epic attack stat, great speed and epic offensive typing. I decided to go Choice band because I wanted it to hit hard – REAL HARD. The two STABs provide deadly coverage with X-scissor handling psychics and Equake for electric types. The Evs are too boost sweeping prowess and I thought Jolly over Adamant to get a little extra speed rather than attack.
When going through ‘Checks and Counters’ for Terrakion I found that Starmie could take a fair few of them on, and besides I need a spinner on this team and this is my favorite spinner. It is a pretty standard Starmie with Surf for STAB and BoltBeam as coverage with Rapid Spin to clear the way for others who are entering. EVs are to boos power, Jolly is the necessary nature – not much more to say.
-Hidden Power (Ice)
So, Scizor was still a big issue at this point so I decided to go with Heatran. Fire Blast is my STAB of choice and doesn’t miss as much as I expected. Earth Power deals some nice damage to most things that resist my STAB. HP Ice is coverage, it can hit dragons and switching Landorus and Gliscor. Stealth Rock had to be on my team somewhere so I thought I’d slot it in here. My Air Balloon keeps away the OHKO from Equake and allows me to switch in on them. Timid gives me extra speed – I thought the SpAtk was already big enough after my EVs.
Now almost every team needs a dragon and this one has Dragonite. Outrage boosted by STAB and Choice Band does EPIC damage, with the next two moves providing great coverage. ExtremeSpeed allows me to get in those important priority attacks and it hits fairly hard, too. Multiscale is obvious, though I don’t have roost to keep using it. Jolly to make it that much faster (plus Choice Band boosts my attack enough), and EVs increase the sweep.
Now I felt I needed something that could take hits and set up Spikes – who better than Skarmory! Spikes Roost and Whirlwind work beautifully together to deal damage to opponents that might be annoying me and Drill Peck is my attacking move so I don’t get any recoil damage. Leftovers can keep it alive to spike and all that. Sturdy means I can get some spikes up without perishing to a T-bolt or something. EVs keep it alive.
I thought I could still do with some help dealing with things such as Gastrodon and other water tanks so I chose Celebi for this, plus it has Heal Bell so it can be my cleric, also I had a physical wall so now I needed something specially defensive.. Giga Drain is my STAB of choice as it does good damage and heals me. U-Turn can do damage and get my sweepers out after a Heal Bell. Recover keeps it alive and Heal Bell is to help my sweepers to sweep. EVs, nture and Leftovers all help the Bulk.
Any sort of help whatsoever would be much appreciated thanks all!
