I decided to make an NU team with really never used Pokémon with a touch of creativity—I looked for something never used even in the NU tier. And I mean something never used. This team had multiple victims, peaked on the ladder, and trolled a lot of people in general, so I decided that it'd be cool to post up an RMT. Well, I'm somewhat bored of this novelty team now, and people started to prepare with some niche sets (Lum Golem ==), making it not as effective. It still wins games consistently, but only if you play near-flawlessly. And that's only if they don't happen to carry a thing that flat-out 6-0's my team! So, round's almost up, and I decided to give this team a long overdue rest and retire it (if troll teams could ever be "retired" because that word just sounds so serious.)
You might say after the team preview, "Hey, so NU is a tier that noobs spam Pikachu, and beat other noobs that use Spinda?" Well, you may be right, but every ladder has their fair share of those people. On the other hand, I do feel that this 'everything is viable' idea makes NU so much more fun. There are so many things that are viable, but literally never used even in the NU tier: gems such as Vileplume and Fraxure were only recently able to show their worth in competitive NU, but proved to be incredibly good. And I'm sure there are more things that we've completely overlooked, but even better than some of the 'standards.' You should all try out NU sometime! But seriously, who reads these, especially for a troll team =/ Let's get to the team.
So, I really haven't got much to say? Shoutouts for quite a few people I've gotten to know around lower tiers, and credits for Zeb for the rmt formatting. I've made some edits to the team, but they're nothing important, really. I have multiple versions of the team anyways =P. I know the team has a lot of holes, so unlike those 'oh my god i peaked 1st on ladder' teams, you can rate it if you want to! I concede there's major holes in my team, of course.

I absolutely love and hate your team. I have never lost more to any team ever in any tier. So much so that I know all your nicknames by heart >_>
Piisuke=butterfree, Gorebyss=gorebyss, Raticate=Rattchan, Golem=Golsuke, Pikachu = Chuchu, and dodrio= dodosuke.
I know giving you recommendations is silly, but the version where Piisuke is Sub QD with tinted lens is Sooooo much scarier at least imo. Also idk if you're attempting to troll with the title, but mice is the plural of mouse :S All in all I have never feared and respected a team more even if it's not entirely serious.
this team could go away and I just would not mind at all
Something that usually worked toward my benefit when playing this team was Magmortar. Firstly, he prevented you from COMPLETELY trolling me with that god damn Butterfree of yours by virtue of Vital Spirit, but secondly you have very few reliable switch ins into this guy. Obviously proferring major suggestions is kind of silly, but you might consider making room for a Curse Miltank over one of your two normal types (preferably Dodrio, since you don't seem too enthralled with him). With Thick Fat, he gives you a semblance of a defense against magmortar, and is actually really hard to KO thanks to a lack of good fighting types in the tier. I guess a cleric never killed anybody either? :D
Of course this all just a formality, it's really a good team and a cool team and, before it was the iconic face of the metagame, I wouldn't have changed a thing. gl man!
edit: I also like how we both jacked Zebra's format, it's just so AESTHETICALLY PLEASING
omg, is this team. There's not much to say that it hasn't been already, this team is really good (considering what mons are you using) and trolled the ladder in a completely inimaginable way. I also laugh a lot on IRC the first days of January as everybody was bitching about this team, as everybody was asking ''who is that random with the annoying team?'' And yeah it was pretty funny.
So yeah, all in all, i won't change this team in any way as it's not a ''serious'' one, but a very succesfull all in all. Congratz and GL man!
This team is awesome! I love your use of Pikachu; it's quite original. However, your team does have a few flaws. First, I wholeheartedly agree that you should change Butterfree's set to Quiver Dance. The set you are currently running is good, but a Quiver Dance Butterfree is so much scarier. It also still works as a great lead due to Sleep Powder. Here's the set:
252 Sp. Att./ 4 Sp. Def./ 252 Speed
Nature: Timid Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
Hidden Power Ground
Also, I feel that Dodrio is a poor Pokemon to use as a Scarfer. It is severly outclassed in both the stat and movepool departments. So i would suggest changing Dodrio for Braviary. Braviary is an incredible Scarfer, having a much better movepool than Dodrio. He also can muscle through bulkier walls better as well. Also, Jolly Scarfed Braviary outspeeds Modest +2 Gorebyss. It also has Superpower to take out Rock and Steel types which Dodrio is unable to do. Here is the set:
252 Att./4 Def./252 Speed
Nature: Jolly/Adamant Item: Choice Scarf
Finally, I feel that Golem's set should be change just a tad. Normal Gem+Explosion is kind of a cheap strategy on something with a movepool like Golem's, so why not make him a pure physical sweeper? You already have his EVs set up that way, and Golem can hit surprisingly hard. Just change Sucker Punch over Explosion (to nail U-Turning Mesprits hard) and the item for Leftovers or Life Orb.
Other than that, your team looks fun and creative and works well! I hope I helped! Good luck!
I can luckily count myself as one of the few people with a positive record against this team :)
One thing I would change is make Pikachu Lightningrod variety with Hidden Power Fighting instead of Focus Punch so you can set up on Choice Rotom-S and Magmortar locked into thunderbolt.
Also, I think Sucker punch would be better than Explosion on Golem, it allows you to revenge kill weakened stuff such as Sawk after activating Sturdy.
I've found Sawk does hurt this team quite a bit with only Butterfree able to take those STAB Close Combats, so I would suggest Rotom-S over Dodrio as it resists Fighting and has Volt Switch to get in Gore/Pikachu safely and preserve momentum.
This team is such a fun team to play against and really shows that you don't need Mesprit/Absol/Magmortar to win.
Thanks for all the positive comments! Smith, DU, Nubagator, and endorphins: I've faced you guys in the ladder multiple times, and it's really been a blast to play with this team against you guys! Especially for Smith: actually Pikachu static has 70 % chance of activating, if you didn't know. =P
@snivy: Sadly, those changes would leave me even weaker to basically all prominent Choice Scarf users. After Golem dies, I need to rely on speed tie for opposing Braviary, and I flat out lose to Scarf Sawk and Scarf Rotom-S. Thanks for trying, though!
Rotom-S over Dodrio sounds interesting, I guess, as it can revenge without losing momentum. I always liked electric types anyways x3. It loses out on Scarf Jynx, but outspeeds most scarfers anyways. Miltank also sounds cool as it means that Cinccino probably can't just 6-0 past me bar major string of 5 hits, and gives me something that I can actually switch in on at least something. I'd test it, but I'm basically done playing with this team =P I'll come back to this team once in a while for fun, though!
Yo man. From what i see, Rocks + Cincinno + a Rock type could give you a hell lot of trouble. I really dont wanna suggest anything though cause it might ruin your team's synergy, but you could possibly try out Sucker punch on golem as well so Cincinnos could be taken down easier(Raticate + Golems Sucker Punch kills it). Otherwise, it's a really cool team you made, and i really love that pikachu set. Good luck!
Any team that can use a Pikachu effectively is a win :)
