help, i'm noob (RMT)
I had this wild idea that Breloom would work well with Houndoom but it hasn't been working out thus far ;-;
Breloom (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Effect Spore
EVs: 44 HP / 252 Atk / 28 Def / 184 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Focus Punch
- Leech Seed
This is leading because Snorlax, Waters, Forretress, and Tyranitar seem to be the most common types of leads. It scares all of them! and gets Celebi into the game asap if the opponent has one which is good.
Snorlax (M) @ Leftovers
EVs: 12 HP / 136 Atk / 136 Def / 20 SAtk / 204 SDef
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Body Slam
- Brick Break
- Fire Blast
Since Houndoom should theoretically remove Gegnars from the fray and Houndoom+Claydol defeat most forms of Jirachi I do not really need Earthquake for much of anything so here's Brick Break to surprise Tyranitar. Aside from that it does your Standard special wall stuff but it actually ends up rarely switching in I find since I have other counters for most Waters/Electrics/stuff.
Porygon2 @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 236 Def / 16 SAtk / 4 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
Dugtrio is annoying for a lot of my team and this counters Mence/Gyara which I need it to do. Toxic because I don't really want to paralyze Metagross... I'd rather Sleep it since it is a huge pain for this team currently. And Toxic is better for helping stall out water types and stuff. Usually my switchin for Jolteon/Houndoom/Flygon as well. It's all around a solid team player : )
cos his horns (Houndoom) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 52 HP / 252 SAtk / 204 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Hidden Power [Grass]
Kills Gengar and Celebi which is important for Breloom, Claydol and Snorlax. Walls offensive Celebi and Superachi and kind of walls full special tyranitar which is kind of funny... I might remove Wisp since it hasn't been that useful but things like Crunch/Beat Up are probably less useful...
Claydol @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 100 Atk / 158 Def
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Rapid Spin
For Spikes, ddtar, some Jirachis, backup help for Raikou, etc. HP Fire decimates Forretress (it probably like 3hkos it tbh) and Explosion is good because if I blow up on Celebi/Blissey/Zapdos/Water mon either Breloom or Houndoom will benefit. Since I have Houndoom and P2 I don't really need Ice Beam or Psychic on this thing but I might use Psychic anyway simply because Gengar is a bit of a menace if I can't manage to snag it with Houndoom...
Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 136 Def / 100 SDef / 20 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Hidden Power [Flying]
Skarmory + Claydol is a solid defensive core. This handles Heracross mostly and also sets up Spikes which work well with Breloom and pretty much anything else for that matter. This is kinda also my only choice against Metagross which sucks a bit, especially if Metagross has HP Fire :<
so yeah man. help me out here.
Porygon 2 should be removed in favor of something else. Maybe starmie. This will give you a FWG core as well as better synergy and the ability to retain boltbeam. That way your team isn't swept by fighting types. Also why is your Skarm -SpA and running HP Flying. It should probably run drill peck first off. However if you really want HP Flying then run a careful nature. If I were you I'd run thick fat and curse on your snorlax instead of immunity and fire blast. Also try crunch instead of will-o-wisp on Houndoom. Don't knock it till you try it, right? As you said will-o-wisp is useless anyways.
