    A team I just made today [OU RMT]

    Post by J-A on Sat Jan 30, 2010 11:55 am

    Hey guys, I’ve decided to make an all new OU team since my previous ones have failed. This time I focused on getting my Pokemon to all work together and cover weaknesses. I’m hoping to get some good rates on this team.
    ---
    Quick Glance:
    | | | | |


    In Depth:


    Forretress @ Leftovers/Shed Shell
    Careful
    Sturdy
    252 HP / 44 Atk / 212 SpD
    - Stealth Rock
    - Spikes
    - Rapid Spin
    - Payback

    Basic lead here. I set up Stealth Rock and Spikes and then switch out to something that can sweep. I try to save him for Rapid Spin. Forry's got Payback so that I can hit Ghosts that try to switch in predicting Rapid Spin or thinking that I'm going to explode myself.



    Latias@ Leftovers
    Modest
    Levitate
    4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    - Recover
    - Calm Mind
    - Surf
    - Dragon Pulse

    Another basic set. I try to set up a few Calm Minds while recovering off the damage. Then I proceed to sweep with Surf or Dragon Pulse.



    Scizor @ Choice Band
    Adamant
    Technician
    200 HP / 252 Atk / 56 Spe
    - U-turn
    - Bullet Punch
    - Superpower
    - Pursuit

    This guy is an absolute favorite of mine. With Scizor I can revenge kill most Pokemon that have been weakened by SR. I try to switch him in on an Ice attack (while praying for no Freeze hax) and then I’ll either set up predicting a switch or KO with Bullet Punch. There isn’t much to say about this since it’s a pretty simple set. U-turn is there to scout and Pursuit to trap stuff like Gengar and Starmie. Superpower is there for sheer power and since I'll be switching a lot the Atk and Def drop doesn't really affect things.



    Heatran @ Choice Scarf
    Naive
    Flash Fire
    4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    - Fire Blast
    - Earth Power
    - Explosion
    - Dragon Pulse

    This guy’s Scizor’s best friend. I send out Heatran on any Fire attacks aimed for Scizor so I get the Fire Boost or Grass attacks aimed at Swampert. Then I’ll proceed to sweep whatever is out there. Fire Blast aids in taking out Grass and Bug types. Earth Power helps with Rock and Poison types and Dragon Pulse gives neutral coverage as well as help in revenge killing Dragons that are locked into Outrage.



    Gyarados @ Leftovers
    Adamant
    Intimidate
    156 HP / 72 Atk / 96 Def / 184 Spe
    - Dragon Dance
    - Taunt
    - Waterfall
    - Stone Edge

    I decided to use a Bulky Gyarados this time around. I usually send him in on Water attacks aimed at Heatran. With Taunt I can prevent Pokemon from setting up or phazing me. I can then proceed with Dragon Dance to set up. Waterfall helps take out Fire, Ground, and Rock types. It also helps in eliminating opposing Heatran’s that cause a problem for Scizor. Stone Edge aids in taking out Flying types and anything that’s resistant to waterfall



    Jolteon @ Leftovers
    Timid
    Volt Absorb
    252 HP / 24 SpD / 232 Spe
    - Discharge
    - Substitute
    - Wish
    - Baton Pass

    After building my team, I noticed my team could really use for Wish support. After going through all the Pokemon that can learn Wish, I settled with Jolteon as it can come in on Electric attacks aimed at Gyarados and at the same time heal itself. Jolteon tries to get a Sub up and then uses Wish, followed by Baton Pass. Most of the time I’ll just Wish and then Baton Pass if one of my other Pokemon can KO what ever is out there.

    ---
    Well that’s my team. I hope I provided enough explanations for it. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, in advance.

    Latias is a problem here. You've only got gengar to help and latias will switch in on something like choice scarftran and get an easy cm up, and then gengar cant beat it. Really your only option of beating is it exploding tran, and that doesent even work if its the bulky kind, in which case your pretty much screwed.
    Roar on swampert really is your best best if its the bulky kind but you're only delaying the inevitable unless you get a crit or something with Gengar.

    Atm thats all I can think of but ill be back xD Its better than the other teams so props xD

    OH THOUGHT OF SOMETHING

    An enemy gengar/starmie is a problem aswell, it can hit everything except scizor & jolteon here for super effective damage
    using only 1 set

    EnergyBall
    Tbolt
    focus blast

    And for starmie surf. If theyre scarfed its probably less of a problem depending on the situation, because Heatran can outspeed unscarfed but not scarfed. and Gengar speedties with unscarfed and he doesent with scarfed so opposing Gengar is a problem

    Hello, first off sorry for taking so long to post.




    - Alright First off you have a modest latias, which should DEFINATELY be timid. Being outsped by starmie, gengar, +speed salamence, +spee flygon etc is really going to suck.

    - On Forretress I would recommend removing your attack EV's and putting them into Special Defense, unless you decide to run payback(Which is really the only reason why the smogon set has attack evs).

    - On Scizor I'm not sure why you have 56 speed EV's, if your trying to out speed something specifically please say so in your post, otherwise I would recommend the following ev spread, which allows more bulk but still enough speed to out speed what you need to.
    244 HP / 252 Attack / 12 speed.

    Alright, so now that minor changes are out of the way I'm going to talk about some major weaknesses that I see with this team.

    You have a pretty large agiligross weakness, I would reccomend replacing your jolteon with a zapdos with the following set:

    Bold Zapdos @ Leftovers
    248 HP / 228 Def / 32 Spe
    - Thunderbolt
    - Roost
    - Heatwave
    - Hidden Power Grass




    - On a side not, you are running a forretress but you do not have a rapid spin blocker. I don't think this will be too big of a deal since I don't see many people run spinners on Wifi, but if it becomes a problem, I would reccomend the swampert set which you previously used before editing, as I think it will work well for this team.

    Anyways Goodluck with this team and I hope I helped

    Thanks for the rate Ecunami.
    The EVs for Scizor ar 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Spe, I must have typed it in wrong in my OP.

    Also, I've got a Zapdos, but it had Hidden Power Ice, would that also work?

    Sorry, but this confused me. Forretress has Rapid Spin on it, so I'm not sure what you meant by this.
