    Just a team I made the other day O_O

    Post by Ecunami on Fri Jan 22, 2010 5:34 pm

    Hello, Just a team I made recently and it has done fairly well getting me to about 1550 on the SU ladder before I stopped laddering(I get really aggravated when I lose to hax so I don't ladder much Very Happy). Anyways here's the team.

    Also on a Side note this if like the first team I've posted in about a year O_O;;




    Relaxed Swampert @ Leftovers
    Ability - Torrent
    252 HP / 4 Attack / 252 Defense
    -Earthquake
    -Stealth Rock
    -Roar
    -Ice Beam

    Swampert is one of my favorite pokemon in the game, and is a very reliable person to get stealth rocks up with. Roar helps me prevent pokemon from setting up on swampert, aswell as inflicting more secondary damage and scouting their team. Ice beam is for Salamence/Dragonite as well as opposing gliscor leads who like to stay in and taunt me predicting the stealth rock.


    Adamant Lucario @ LifeOrb
    Ability - Innfer Focus
    252 Attack / 4 Def / 252 Speed
    -Swords Dance
    -Close Combat
    -Crunch
    -Extreme Speed

    Lucario is on of the deadliest sweepers in the current metagame, ans was the pokemon I based my team around. He generally come in on a pursuit / crunch aimed at latias, and will begin to setup, if the opponents lucario counter is gone or weakened then the game is basically over at this point.


    Timid Latias @ LifeOrb
    Ability - Levitate
    -Draco Meteor
    -Hidden Power Fire
    -Grass Knot
    -Recover

    Latias is Lucarios main sweeping partner, and together they handle pretty much anywall, and latias often gives lucario the chance to setup that he desperately needs since many people attempt to use a dark type move to finish off latias it gives me an easy chance to set up with lucario. Hidden power fire takes care of scizor, although I usually have to predict as to whether they bullet punch or pursuit, and grass knot helps a great deal against opposing swamperts, aswell as tyranitar if I can predict the switch.


    Jolly Tyranitar @ Choice Scarf
    Ability - Sand Stream
    252 Attack / 252 Speed / 4 hp
    -Crunch
    -Pursuit
    -Stone Edge
    -Earthquake

    Tyranitar provides a cover to fast ghost types that I need to get out of the way, such as gengar and choice scarf rotom-A, Which could provide a lot of trouble for both lucario and latias. So I simply decided to go with tyranitar and slap a choice scarf on him so that he could outspide non scarfed gengars and avoid a focus blast.




    Bold Rotom-H @ Leftovers
    Ability - Levitate
    252 Defense / 4 Special attack / 252 Hp
    -Will-o-Wisp
    -Thunderbolt
    -Rest
    -Sleep Talk

    Rotom-H acts as my gyara and scizor counter as well as my spin blocker. Both of which are vital for being able to pull off a sweep with lucario since gyara and salamence are often counters used for him on offensive teams, and without stealth rock it would be very hard to finish them off. Rotom-H also works extremely well with Tyranitar covering almost all of his weaknesses. Rotom-H also acts as my status absorber(mainly for sleep.



    Adamant Scizor @ Choice Band
    Ability - Technician
    244 HP / 252 Attack / 12 Speed
    -Bullet Punch
    -U Turn
    -Pursuit
    -Super Power

    CB Scizor is my Mence counter, and also comes in on his many resistances to U-turn on switches and provide my team with momentum aswell as weakening up the opponents team members.



    Team Building Process(Just if your wondering how I went about making it ;O)

    -Started off with Lucario and I knew I needed a sweeping partner so I chose Latias, and as explained up above the work extremely well together
    -Then I listed out the main counters to lucario, and what I came up with was roughly - CSRotom-A, Gyara, Mence, Gliscor, Hippowdon, Gengar. These aren't all the counters, just the ones I felt I needed to focus on.
    -I chose tyranitar to handle the ghosts, and then Rotom-A because he works well with tyranitar in general, and can also handle mence.
    -After I hode those 4 I needed another steel to take hits for my team since I didnt want lucario taking them, and I also needed a mence counter. Answer? Scizor.
    -Then I simply chose a reliable stealth rock lead who could help clear up some weaknesses : swampert.

    Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks!.

    Here's a story i like to call : When scizor dies

    Lol okay forget the story pretty much your team dies to lucario after a scarf magnezone traps scizor (or luke Extremespeed does nothing to the magnezone).
    Yeah, its pretty ironic lol, after swords dance Luke can take you the majority of your team, save for tyranitar because of choice scarf, and once its scarfed into something like EQ, Salamence / Latias comes in and decides to set up and proceed the sweep that luke poked holes into.

    Beware Nasty Plot mixape (I cant seem emphasize this enough), because it will DESTROY this team without rotom, because it can outspeed latias if your not running a +speed nature and KILL THE TEAM (Ttar cant do anything if its running vacuum wave)

    Anyways, Vaporeon can fix all of these problems, but exactly where i'd put vaporeon is beyond me.

    Basicly relying on one pokemon to save you from mr X sweeper wont help if you said pokemon is fainted, and Mr X Can sweep without hassle.

    OH ALMOST FORGOT EVERYTHING ON THIS TEAM IS DDTAR WEAK And Bullet punch wont ohko it to the best of my knowledge(I think but its still a huge problem)
    After 1dd the jolly version outspeeds everything on this team and ties with your own TTAR who cant ohko so thats a problem.

    Okay i suppose im done, but i strongly advise vaporeon

    -I can play around magnezone
    -Luke is a problem, but I can revenge kill with tyranitar, and the ONLY pokemon he can set up against is scizor who I u-turn with 90% of the time.
    -Latias does run a +speed nature..
    - I'm not ddtar weak atall.. I have scizor, scarftar, and SWAMPERT.. and really he can't setup on anything.

    Yeah you are, they all die to a +1 Attack from ddtar if its manages to set up.
    and lol, You cant switch out of magnezone buddy, auto dead for scizor
    Didnt see latias ran a speed nature, my bad ^_^

    And anyone with half a brain runs from ttar xD Switch into mence or something and DD and then kill everything.
