Hello! Always wanted to build a team around Kyurem! Except that wanted to use it outside of that Hail is the climate that it is usually used, I had a headache until the current team, luckily got a great result is the team showed very solid in my tests, I thank superpowerdude helped me looking for the team since the start of his desenvolvimente and giving me some tips.Show the process of creation.
The First Choice team was Kyurem as said in the introduction that I would see how it would fare in another climate.
I was looking for someone to give good coverage to Kyurem, because it found Jirachi possesses resistance to almost everything that takes Kyurem Super Effective.
Kyurem suffers greatly with Entry Hazards needed to avoid this, Xatu enters the team possessing Magic Bounce not only protects but also Kyurem whole team Entry Hazards, besides has immunity to be ground is a great figthing against exchange.

Possessing half the team got this slot Politoed a Pokémon that I had in mind from the beginning because I did not want to use as Hail climate.

Need an Electric immunity while someone who had the strength to help beat Kyurem, Landorus was added to the team having Atk Speed is high and also high Spatk was a great addition to the team.

The Time was almost ready sooner saw that I could not lean on Chansey, Virizion enters the team having an extensive movepool is figthing Stab would be easy for the Chansey out the match.

In Depth Look:
Politoed (M) @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd/4 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
- Focus Blast
- Perish Song
Few people like this frog! Invoking the rain is the most role.Choice Scarf Politoed makes abusers can eliminate enemies with powerful stab bonus Water.Com the rain Hydro Pump becomes strong enough to do some revenge, including Tornadus-T taking OHKO Hydro Pump after damage from Stealth Rock, Ice Beam becomes of great importance because of OHKO after Stealth Rock on Dragonite, moreover may be using to give in Kill Revenger abusers sun has weakened, Focus Blast used to hit Tyranitar when I do not have rain in the field is also Ferrothorn if necessary, Perish Song completes the moveset is very useful to not end up being defeated by things like Volcarona.
Jirachi @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 32 Def / 224 SDef
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
- Stealth Rock
Jirachi has a large number of resistances managing to give coverage to the huge Kyurem, managing to get into Draco Meteor from Latios and Tornadus of Hurricane-T without suffering much by grando fact has great HP and Spdef, Stealth Rock move that makes every team uses things like Dragonite can be defeated and guarantees that many OHKO without damage from it would not be possible to happen, Wish causes it can survive for much longer in the battle besides it can be used to retrieve the rest of the team, Thunder wins 100% about the rain, besides having great chance to paralyze is used to set Bulky Waters, U-Turn closes his moveset being scounter coup because it helps me make better situations during battle.
Kyurem @ Leftovers
EVs: 52 HP / 220 SAtk / 236 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Earth Power
- Ice Beam
The star of the team! Kyurem always used much in teams hail.is really impressive turn getting free things like Rotom-W is possible subtitute easily enter and start hitting, Substitute means that it can be protected status and also taking Revenger Kill, Roost does a great job since recovering from life Kyurem causing it to last very long but, Ice Beam is your coup stab, Earth Power hits all misses Ice Beam or hit things like Heatran, Jirachi and Tyranitar.
Virizion @ Choice Band
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Close Combat
- Leaf Blade
- Stone Edge
One of musketeers who came in fifth generation! Virizion is well forgotten compared to your friends Keldeo and Terrakion has a solid combination of types, Close Combat hits OHKO everything that does not have resistance or immunity, Leaf Blade ends with Water Types (Rotom-W, Jellicent, Gastrodon) all suffer OHKO, Stone Edge hits Volcarona, Dragonite, X-Scissor closes the moveset being used to hit Psychic-Types (Latios, Latias, Reuniclus,Celebi)
Landorus (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Rock Polish
- Earth Power
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Ice]
Landorus can really help the team, as he has with Sheer Force to increase their power and not take damage from Life Orb on Earth Power and Focus Blast, furthermore adds an immunity very important to the team that is Electric, Rock Polish Landorus makes become a Mind Game Sweeper incredible as it increases its Speed causing him to spend most Scarfs is to attack as much as possible, Earth Power is your star is in the OHKO Jirachi, Tyranitar Spdef with a maximum which is something impressive, Focus Blast causes it to OHKO on Skarmory after Stealth Rock damage and Ferrothorn, Hidden Power (Ice) makes it possible to kill Gliscor, Dragonite, Landorus-T, Landorus, Tornadus-T.
Xatu (M) @ Rocky Helmet
Trait: Magic Bounce
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Thunder Wave
Xatu received Magic Bounce which is amazing because it makes the staff is protected and Status of Entry Hazard, said in addition to its combination of types it becomes a great answer to get in-figthing Moves, Psychic is stab, Roost makes it can last much longer recovering your HP, Thunder Wave's great support for the team can stop fast sweepers, U-Turn is its stroke scounter.
Log battles made the team:
Team looks cool.
My thoughts when viewing the team:
Hey! Duggy + Sun is a bitch to this team, commonly known as Lavos Sun. Lavos Sun will Duggy Jirachi, Genesect, and Venu. It's really hard to come up with a solid change, I would go to Virizion first but its a must-have member against rain. I really want to change your Politoed spread. Does it get any extra kills? (EDIT: as in tornadus-t) Jirachi is a safe go-to for him anyway and getting the surprise kill on him isn't worth losing much needed bulk against sun teams. So unless you got a better reason (and feel free to correct me ;]) for using Scarf Toed, I recommend your classic defensive one. The set is better for fighting sun and keeping weather up in general and I feel it would be better for this team since sun is a bitch and you NEED to win the weather war.
Wish is o.k. on Jirachi I guess, but it isn't really needed. So its preference changes, but you can always switch Wish for something like Icy Wind, Iron Head, Body Slam, etc. if you find any holes in the team.
Er, Genesect is a bitch to this team. Any Genesect that is specially oriented will give you problems, considering your like 3 pokes ice weak. Gene + Duggy itself can flat-out laugh at you. I just want to say that you need to constantly spam U-turn with Jirachi in order to prevent these situations, and also Gene has flamethrower which will make your life miserable. Nothing, not even Kyreum - who fears +1 Bug Buzz - can switch into any of his attacks. So what I'm going to is suggest a mile of things for you to switch:
Firstly, switch banded Virizion for banded Terrakion, which hits harder and can also take most of Gene's attacks. With that said, your exposed to rain, so replace Xatu for Rotom-W. With physical bulk in Politoed and Lando's resistances, you don't need that much fighting resist for the team. Rotom-W will still had core wall most things in rain, and alsonside Kyreum, you should be fine. Banded Terrakion hits things like Skarm much harder too, which makes it a suffiecent counter to SkarmBliss as well, standalone. Stone Edge also hits Dragons like DNite who you fail to hit hard with except for slow Kyreum with.
on a final note, switch Wish for Icy Wind, or Iron Head, as Dragons will try to set up and Jirachi is your main wall, so you want to punish them if they try to set up on you. Good team and I hoped I helped. From reading your RMT, I have full confidence that I don't need to submit any sets for you, since you can probably do that on your own. GL!
EDIT: Duggy will still be hard to counter, just play smartly and hopefully Rotom-W or Kyreum can smash it. Also, I think Terrak can live a single EQ at +0.
Perish Song with Choice Scarf is a bit of a liability. You'll have to switch back and forth if Volcarona were to come in on a Focus Blast, by which time it'll sweep you. Perhaps Life Orb?
Also, Virizion for offense is just simply outclassed. Terrakion has stronger attacks, and still doesn't quite close all OHKOs. Reuniclus, Dragonite, Gyarados, Salamence, can all tank the respective super effective hits directed at each one with little worry, although offensive variants of Dragonite are cleanly 2HKO'd with Stone Edge, this is aswell as being completely walled by any physical tank. I'd use a Swords Dance set if you wish to keep it, but otherwise I'd go for Terrakion or Keldeo.
Is there any particular reason you're going with Adamant and Modest natures on Virizion and Landorus respectively? You really need the Timid nature on Landorus to prevent a plethora of + speed nature Base 100's from outspeeding you and taking you out. I understand you have Rock Polish to boost its speed, but you won't have that luxury until later on in the match if at all. Special Landorus is a huge threat in this metagame and setting up too early could definitely cost you the game.
I believe you really need to just replace Virizion overall. Your team has weaknesses to Mamoswine and Sun in general. Sunny Day Ninetales is going to be pretty problematic if you do face one seeing as your Politoed is offensive and only fire resist. I suggest you replace it with a Rotom-W and give Xatu Reflect over Thunder Wave, you'll be able to handle Mamoswine a lot better. With Rotom-W, you are able to obtain a lot of momentum with Volt Switch and just with that you have a slightly better match up against sun. Especially with Kyurem because it has difficulty getting a free switch in for fear of a sun boosted attack or status.
Hey Miles Tails thanks for the shout out and fantastic team!
This team has quite alot of cool things in it Choice Band Virizion seems very cool and Xatu is quite and underated pokemon as well. As Chimpakt mentioned Mamoswine can be quite a threat to this team due to him getting super effective coverge on your whole team aside from Politoed who wouldnt want to take a stab earthqauke because the Life Orb Mamoswine 2hko's Politoed with it. Also with a bit of hazards damage Mamoswine can actaully beat Politoed switch ins with Earthqauke+Ice Shard. Hail stall may be a bit of an issue to because they threaten Xatu with the Ice-type moves they commonly carry making it a lot easier for them to set up their hazards.
With Choice Scarf on Politoed and Xatu/Jirachi being able to spread paralysis your team doesn't really need the speed that Rock Polish Landorus brings. I think your team would be much better of with Substitute>Rock Polish Although you miss out on having +2 speed with the paralysis support from Jirachi and Xatu, Landorus will still outspeed alot of pokemon and have an easier time getting up a Substitute with the opponents paralysed pokemon having a 25% chance to not move. This makes Landorus a good pokemon to use against stall teams due to being able to block their status moves with a Substitute then fire off his powerful attacks. Although this still doesn't help you to much against Mamoswine behind a Substitute he can't be revenge killed by Abomasnow or Mamoswines Ice Shard while being able to Ko them both with Focus Blast while he will get ample oppurtinities to get up Substitutes thanks to your teams paralysis spreading. If you decide to go with this change i would also use Timid>Modest so you can outspeed positive base 100's. Although you lose a bit of power without Modest behind a Substitute Landorus often gets another free turn to attack so it isn't all to bad.
Good luck with the team i hope i helped!
