Hello Smogon! This is my first rmt. Im usually here on Smogon lurking on the forums, picking up on new things and keeping up to date with battling. I finally decided to post a rmt of a team that Ive been most successful with. This team I made a few days ago when the servers came back up and after a few days of playing I got the the team to 1800. The team is focused on fast momentum and keeping the opponent guessing. Its also focused on teamwork and covering each others weaknesses. Ive made some improvements to the team, got the team to peak at 2170! Changes in BOLD. http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/...ps88410663.png
The team in detail:
Gangsta Killa (Breloom) @Life OrbSummary:
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Speed
Out of all the pokemon in the game Breloom has a special place in my heart. I actually built my whole team around this mon. Not only is this thing cute but it can really pack a punch.
-Mach Punch: The main move of the set. Mach punch is an extremely useful move that I often use for late game sweeping and revenge killing. It is the only priority on my team so that also makes it extremely important!
-Low Sweep: I decided to go with low sweep instead of the usual swords dance for many reasons. I really don't use my breloom as a straight up sweeper, this move allows him to also break walls. Pokemon that switch into this move will than be slower than loom allowing him to fire off either another or bullet seed first. Especially useful against pokes like starmie.
-Bullet Seed: Obviously used for better coverage. Smacks water types in the face as well as grounds.
-Spore: The best status in the game, allows for Breloom to get multiple hits in, cripple a powerful opponent, or swithc into a counter. Very useful for this team!
Breloom functions as my late game cleaner, revenge killer and check to many annoyances due to his useful resistances.
FLUDD (Rotam-Wash)@Leftovers Summary:Rotom-W is one of the best pokemon in the meta in my opinion. It has many useful resistances and only one real weakness that is rarely carried.
EVs: 252 HP/220 Sdef/36 Speed
-Hydro Pump: A very powerful STAB! I use this move quite often. It is almost a sure KO to any thing that is water weak and in the rain become monstrously powerful.
-Volt Switch: Great move for scouting and keeping the momentum of the game in my favor, fits the theme style of my team well.
-Will O Wisp: Mainly used for crippling attackers, I love to spread this thing around as much as i can. Great for burning brelooms and ground pokemon on the switch.
-Thunderbolt: I never ever found myself using painsplit so Id thought I'd give tbolt a try, and i love it! Theres been many situations where I needed a strong attack but couldnt use hydro-pump, this move gives me that power.
Rotom is a great check to many pokemon like TornadusT. It has great bulk and has good synergy with breloom.
Master Chief (Genesect) @Choice Scarf Summary:What can be said about genesect besides that hes the monster of OU right now. This thing is my most important member and I need to keep him alive from start to finish. Hes often my lead and specializes in revenge killing.
EVs: 8 Atk/248 Spatk/252 Speed
-U-Turn: The main move of the set. With Uturn and Genesects amazing speed due to choice scarf I can scout with amazing speed. Keeps the momentum of the game in my favor and allows me to send out proper counters. Also hits troublesome pokemon like latias hard.
Opted out flamtherower for bug buzz. Bulky steels are not a problem for this team while pokemon like latias are more.
-Thunderbolt: Part of the amazing bolt-beam combo, thunderbolt has saved me many games. A pokemon this team does not like is gyarados and this guy can take it out right away.
-Ice beam: Obviously very useful in this meta-game filled with countless strong dragons.
Revenge killer and scout. He can also sweep late-game if need be. Great all around teammate.
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 248 HP/252 SpDef/8 Speed
-ProtectSummary:Heatran is my special tank. Im using the typical set because its perfect for my team.
-Lava Plume: A powerful fire move. Great for taking out pokemon such as scizor and grass pokemon like celebi.
-Stealth Rock: A much needed move for this teams success. I find heatran to be the best pokemon to have stealth rock just because the fact he causes so many switches.
-Toxic: Love using this move on pokemon such as jellicent who is a pain for this team to take down. Also useful for pokemon I know I cannot effieciently counter.
-Protect: Great for poison stalling an apponent, also useful for predicting and sending in the next pokemon.
Heatran is a great check to heavy hitting special attackers that can give this team trouble such as volcarona. Also status and stealth rocks are very handy for the team. Also great against sun teams.
Little Bat (Gliscor)@Toxic Orb
Summary: Replaced Landorus therian with in my opinion, a much superior defensive mon.
Ability: poison heal
EVs: 252 Hp/184 Def/72 Speed
-Earthquake:Main stab. Great for picking off pesky heatrans and jirachis.
-Ice Fang: A crucial move to the set. Ice fang is very handy with dealing with dragons like salamence who can otherwise give the team nightmares.
-Protect: Great for prediction, especially against choice users. Also allows me to heal up.
-Substitute: Great for hiding behind when you know a switch is coming, allows for alot of free hits.
LandoT wasnt doing the job for me defensivley, and the fact that I had no pokemon that could absorb status was a huge problem! Gliscor solves all those problems.
Raptor (Latios)@Choice Specs
EVs: 4 HP/252 SpAtk/252 Speed
-Dragon PuleSummary:The jet fighter dragon is one of my all time favorite pokemon. Speed, incredible power and special bulk make him a potent threat.
-Draco Meteor: The nuke. This thing kills anything not made of steel. Incredibly powerful for breaking walls or just killing anything I need gone. Cleanly k0s Dnite as well.
-Psyshock:A great STAB. Very useful against conk who can be a huge problem to my team. Also love this move for chansey and blissey.
-Surf: Great for scizor switch ins and most steels in general. When in doubt use surf.
-Dragon pulse: I went with this move as my last slot to allow him to plow through multiple pokemon with a STAB if need be. Very situational move.
Team purpose:Latios is another pokemon with use full resistances such as fire and ground. Hes mainly used for coming in and bombing things with draco meteor. Often is my lead if I dont see a pursuit user.
Also can function as a pseudo mixed attacker.
Although this team may not have weather and may be simple, It is pretty effective I've found. Please give me any suggestion and I will try it!!!! Hugely appreciated!!!!!
! Thanks for reading!
