GSC team i made with mop for spl2 and didnt lose a single game with (went like 5-0 or 6-0 with it)
Basically explosion team with Espeon as the late game sweeper. Theres nothing really special about it besides 1-2 interesting gimmicks instead of standard sets.
This team underwent several variations - one version had LK-Lax-Lead (with no rest i think) and leech seed+boom-eggy as well as hp[electric]-cloyster.
Exspecially the Mon in the lead position i switched around regularly - i usually rotated between Lax, Cloy and Gengar.
Gengar (M) @ Leftovers
- Fire Punch/Ice Punch
- Mean Look
Mean Look trap monoattacking normals (Lax, miltank) or electrics and then freeze/boom them into oblivion.
Snorlax (M) @ Leftovers
- Fire Blast
Defensive backbone and usually just used to sponge hits (from electrics usually) and then boom up vs something that annoys me.
Exeggutor (M) @ Leftovers
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Sleep Powder
Standard boom eggy with hp[fire] cuz i somehow hated skarm, giga drain would probably been better considering ttar is a way bigger problem for this team than skarm.
Cloyster (M) @ Leftovers
- Icy Wind/Hidden Power [Electric]
Icy Wind Cloyster to force Zapdos/Raikou out with the threat of an incoming explosion. Surf is there to hit Marowak/Rhydon/Ttar for more dmg cuz they are kinda annoying for this team. Sometimes i used HP[electric]-Cloyster (but i was kinda know for using that so i switched to icy wind).
Tyranitar (M) @ Leftovers
- Rock Slide
Pursuit-Ttar to eliminate ghosts allowing me to freely boom without having to think much. Curse so it works as a 'Lax-Check' and Roar vs. M+Perish and Joltwak etc.. Surf or maybe Crunch might have been better than Curse in hingsight.
Espeon (M) @ Leftovers
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Morning Sun
The mon that swept most of the time after opposing Lax/Electrics were weakened and TTar eliminated. Good chance to 2hko the electrics after 1 Growth with Psychic (with ~5-10% chip dmg its basically a guaranteed 2hko). Needs like ~15% chip dmg on Lax to 3hko it and Psychic still has this neat SDef-Drop-chance. HP[Fire] to hit skarm/eggy/forry because somehow many people thought skarm was safe to phaze Espy. Espeon also takes more hits than one thinks:
- Zapdos/Raikou cant reliably 2hko Espy with Thunder and Tbolt is only a 3hko.
- Snorlax's Body Slam never 2hkoes and Frustration has only a slim chance to 2hko (with Lefties).
Was a cool team and fun to use back in 2011 but had some obvious flaws. Reflect-Raikou and TTar are 2 big problems and Starmie/Electrics often required me to boom immediately. Somehow most players in 2011 didnt use Ttar or Reflect-Raikou - people leaned more towards more offensive teams not the standard stall which helped me out quite a bit. Probably wouldnt use it nowadays after ive realized its many flaws and lean more towards a conservative approach.
