    Default OU Teambuilding Competition

    OU Teambuilding Competition


    For those that look at smogon, yes I stole this idea from there

    Teambuilding is a huge part of playing the game. Teambuilding requires intellegence and creativity, unlike actual battling which is based more on luck. Unlike a CCAT, this is more of a solo project, while still benefiting with teambuilding, but is easier to deal with as we don't need people to work together as much.

    Every round I'll submit a new 2 pokemon core. From there, everyone will have to use their teambuilding skills and create a team using the core. Once the entry round is over, the community will vote on who's team is best and should be added to the hall of fame in the op and we move to the next round.

    Rules


    -Team Submission : Please put your team importable in a spoiler as well as the description of how your team benefits from the given core.

    -Copying : Obviously with using the same core, there are chances teams will be almost mirrors of others. Should this happen, the first of the two teams will stay and the other will be disqualified if there are a lot of similar pokemon with similar sets

    -Team Changes : I would rather this not become a huge rmt, you can comment on what is wrong with teams posted but keep it minor. Teams can not be changed once submitted however.

    -No Bandwagoning : Don't support someone just because you know them or because they are well known.

    -Reward : People that get a team into the Hall Of Fame will get an increase to their voting count to two points instead of one

    As an example lets say the given core is Terrakion and Kyurem Black

    Round 12

    Deoxys-Speed OR Deoxys-Defense + Bisharp

    OR +

    It seems like both Deoxys forms are going to be banned when the Voting Period comes around, so let's use this week to submit some teams for the best core in the early XY metagame: DeoSharp.

    Deoxys-Defense is an amazing Pokemon, capable of getting hazards up quickly and efficiently. Of course, the hazards can be either Defoged away, which creates issues for Deo-D. That's where Bisharp comes in. Bisharp got the biggest buffs in XY. Not only did Knock Off get an increase in base power, Defog now activates Defiant, granting Bisharp a +2 when the opponent attempts to remove the hazards Deoxys set up.

    Deoxys-Speed can fill the same niches Deo-D can, and more. Deo-S is most commonly known as either LO Attack, carrying either 4 Atks or 3 Atks + SR, or the Dual Screens lead set. Deo-S fills both roles better than any other Pokemon possibly could do to its amazing speed and its movepool. Deo-S can even do Deo-D's job and stack hazards. Deo-S can be used instead of Deo-D because it is much faster and can Taunt opposing Taunters before Deo-D can. If you really don't want a spinner, Deo-S would probably be a better option than Deo-D. Bisharp pairs nicely with any form of Deoxys. On Dual Screens, Bisharp can either be used to punish Defoggers or use the Screens for itself and set up a Swords Dance or two.

    DeoSharp has been used so much this gen, first publicly introduced in Sinclair's RMT, and is now being spammed on the Deoxys Suspect Ladder.

    Do not post the team everyone on the ladder is using. The team is: Deoxys-Defense / Bisharp / Mega Mawile / Aegislash / Landorus-Incarnate / Thundurus-Incarnate.

    Deadline to submit is the 3rd.

    So, I figured I'd try my hand at this. Made this team a bit ago and have been testing it since. Got to about 1500 on the ladder before tilt struck me, and this is what I finally came up with. The team centers around whittling down the opponent slightly so that the bird spam can kill them. This is a team best played aggressively, attempting to force switches with the sheer power of the birds and gain momentum to set up a Mega Pinsir sweep.

    Technically, this team introduces Talonflame as almost another member of the informal core, but the original StarPinch core is there.

    Tyranitar is a behemoth both offensively and defensively, having amazing stats aside from its sub par speed. Tyranitar does well in the meta with an assaut vest, tanking hits from pokemon like Thundurus I and Latios like nothing and KOes back. However the choice scarf set is underrated and excellent, outpacing up to 115 base speed, allowing Tyranitar to check threats like Landorus I that it normally can't. Finally we can't forget its Mega form, using dragon dance to sweep and muscle through teams with ease.

    Garchomp is a powerful wall breaker with 102 speed and access to swords dance. Garchomp can also set up stealth rocks and phase out threats with dragon tail, thriving with a bulky set using rough skin and a rocky helmet to score a lot of damage checking physical threats. Garchomp also has a nice Mega form, who thrives on sand. Swords dance is a tad outclassed by normal Garchomps, but with a mixed set it can 2hko everything that isn't absurdly bulky like Suicune.

    A standard sand core with two possible megas. Both megas are two of the most offensive ones in the metagame, Mega Tyranitar can sweep at +1 while mixed Mega Garchomp 2hkoes the whole metagame making nothing safe to come in. You aren't forced to use either of these as your mega but you are allowed to.

    teams can (and will) share more than just the two Pokemon, but the more you can make yours stand out, the better.
