The Sun Is Strong In NU
Hello guys this is my first NU team post here on the forum, and I hope it will be enjoyable. So in NU weather is a very strong strategy to use if played right, offense is the most easy way to go with a sun team due to chlorophyll users. My team is based around a Charizard & Victreebel core that is pretty underused in NU but very devasting when sun is up. So due to sun not beeing a common sight in NU, I found out that I would give it a shot because sun is very fun, and have a lot off abusers here in NU, making me even more stoked to make a team. Also the user Ebeast helped me a little with this team so I just wanna thank him, he is a great player and a awesome guy, but enough about me talking lets start with the team.
~The Team at a Glance~
~The Team In Detail~
Charizard @ Heat Rock | Solarpower
Timid | 252 SAtk | 252 Spd | 4 SpD
Fire Blast | Solarbeam | Sunny Day | Roost
So here is Charizard my main Sun setter, this set is incredibly scary and extremely powerfull when sun is up, Charizard also is very underused in NU due to its huge SR weakness but Roost kinda makes up for that imo. Charizard job is to set up sun sweep and deal huge damage to the opposing team, making a huge offensive pressure on my opponent. Also Charizard has Solarbeam giving him nearly unresisted coverage.
Victreebel @ Life Orb | Chlorophyll
Naive | 252 Atk | 252 Spd | 4 SAtk
Leaf Blade | Sucker Punch | Weather Ball | Growth
Here is my first Chlorophyll user utilizing the Charizard & Victreebel core which is just to underrated to date. Victreebel can run an extremely strong mixed set in the sun, Growth is boosting both Atk & SAtk that is very op in my oppinion, also Victreebel learns Sucker Punch meaning he can also sweep when the sun is gone which is just great. Leaf Blade is there over Solarbeam so he canstill use his STAB move when the sun is gone, Weather Ball gets an incredibel BP in sun also making it a Fire move, so be carefull when facing this guy you never know what set it runs.
Probopass @ Heat Rock | Sturdy
Modest | 252 HP | 252 SAtk | 4 SpD
Flash Cannon | Volt Switch | Sunny Day | Stealth Rock
So here is Probopass my bird resist and he does that job very well, due to my team beeing very weak to the likes off Braviary & Swellow I really just needed Probopass to wall them, also Probopass works as a great pivot setting up sun and letting a sun sweeper getting in for free with a slow Volt Switch, which is just great. Probopass also have great synergy with the team too, making him even a better teammate.
Exeggutor @ Heat Rock | Chlorophyll
Modest | 252 SAtk | 252 Spd | 4 HP
Solarbeam | Psychic | Sleep Powder | Sunny Day
Exeggutor what a fantastic mon you are! In sun he just rocks, Sleep Powder is just so great letting other sweepers set up or let Exeggutor wreck stuff himself, also Solarbeam is great STAB paired with Psychic, he also have that usefull fighting resist too. Sunny Day is there to surprise the opponent also giving him the opportunity to sweep faster mons, or put them to sleep.
Emboar @ Choice Scarf | Blaze
Jolly | 252 Atk | 252 Spd | 4 SpD
Flare Blitz | Head Smash | Wild Charge | Superpower
So Magmar got swapped for Emboar, this Emboar serves great as Scarfer in sun, I guess you guys only can imagine an sun boosted Flare Blits after a Sap Sipper Pass from Sawsbuck ? Well is quit powerfull and it serves the job better than Magmar as it hits harder and with physical attacks. Head Smash rapes Altaria, and smacks flying types by ease, Wild CHarge hits Alomomola hard and Supepower hits the Rock & Steel's hard.
Sawsbuck [Spring] @ Life Orb | Sap Sipper
Jolly | 252 Atk | 252 Spd | 4 HP
Horn Leech | Nature Power | Return | Baton Pass
So here is my last sweeper Sawsbuck, he works as a late game sweeper, and does that pretty well. Horn Leech is like the most awesome physical STAB move that gives recovery, Nature Power is a great Sucker Punch lure against Skuntank, also Return is the strongest STAB move he gets after Doubble Edge. Sawsbuck has Sap Sipper to deal wih Amoonguss and other pesky grass moves, he can easely Baton Pass these boost the either Emboar or Victreebel, or even use them himself.
