Its A Cold World (OU RMT)
I started battling 6 days ago, but i think this team isnt terrible. Thanks in advance 4 ur imput!
240 HP / 156 Def / 64 SpA / 50 Spe
As long as my oppent doesnt use a wheather inducer, Politoad makes an excellent lead. Even if they due have wheather, this spread gives politoad crucial durability; perfect 4 winning a wheather war. Additionally, the only wheather pok?mon that really threatens politoad more then politoad threatens it is ambasnow, because a scarfed 1 could easly destroy politoad w/ wood hammer (learned the hard way). All the other inducers hate Toxic, whitch is just what theyll get if they try 2 counter politoad! The speed is 2 make sure i outspeed jellicent so i can Toxic it before it taunts me. P-song can destroy b-pass chains easily, and as long as my hazards r up force them 2 make a painful desciosion; literally! The rest of his set is toxic stall, with scald 4 that chance at burning steal and posion types.
Tentacruel w/ Black Sludge
244 HP / 212 Def / 52 Spe
Tentacruel is essential 2 this team, getting extreemly large recovery in rain, having his neutral effective attack get boosted by more than the amount a supere effective attack is boosted, spinning away hazards (as long as jellicent isnt present)and, if preserved, instead of a late game cleaner, tentacruel becomes an extraordany late game staller, boasting protect, rain dish, and black sludge, meaning if the oppenent cant deal more than 50% damage 2 this tentacruel in 1 turn, as long as the rains up, that pok?mon cant beat it!
Quagsire w/ Leftovers
240 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD / 10 Spe
Before i even explain y im using a pok?mon w/ such bad base-values, there r a few things i would like 2 say; unlike Quagsire, i AM awar that waterfall in the rain is more powerful than e-quake. HOWEVER, one of the main reasons i use this pokemon is 2 counter pok?mon such as dry skin tocxicroak, who is ammune 2 toxic and water moves. Additionally, i cant replace the evs in Def 2 SpD, because then some of the boosting powerhouses it can cover could 2HKO it.Im currently running scald, but im highly considering using curse instead, because thn it can wall phisical threats with extreme ease and cripple anything that switches in, while walling & destroying virtually everything thats immune 2 toxic! The main problem is, if i dont have scald, anything with levitate or flying type that is par posion or steel is able 2 completly wall me, forcing me 2 switch and thus forfeiting whatever boosts i may have accumalated.I'm stil not sure, tho, so pls tell me w=if its a bad idea, and/or if there's another move 2 forgo 4 it.
Dragonite w/ Leftovers
252 HP / 100 SpA / 148 SpD / 8 Spe
This is my final counter 4 baton pass chains, and also 1 of my better counters 4 jelliecent. Dragon tail can phaze oppenents, making them lose any stats boosts they may have aquired and shifing there pok?mon into hazards. Hurricane is my main counter 4 celibi & my best counter 4 virvizion, and thunder stops jelliecent cold. However, i have 2 be wary of ice beam. Dragonite is extreemly limited in the presence of stealth rock, but even if i cant spin them away, i can have chansey use wish 2 heal off its damage, as long as i succefully switch into a settupp move w/ dragonite.
Chansey w/ Eviolite
240 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD / 8 Spe
Heal Bell/Seismic Toss
This chansey is like superman, only its a girl. It can cure my entire team of status allments, heall extrordanarly large amounts of health 2 teamates, wall a mix-mence, and toxic any special attackers that made my quagsire cry. Im thinking protects a superior option over softboiled, but sofboiled gives me more freedom 2 switch in. However, as long as i switch into a special attack, ill be fine, and therfore i believe Protect is the superior option. I was pained 2 give up seismeic toss, but even tho i cant attack dirrectly, even with seismiec toss i wouldnt want 2 stay in if i got taunted, and pokemon that r immune 2 toxic r weak 2 ground, whitch quagsire can use well. If a special attacker doesnt have any other non-status inflicting moves that will boost its power,v chansey can still wall it 4 as long as it needs 2, altho it would b using struggle, and the recoil would b very counterproductive.
Bronzong / Leftovers
252 Hp / 84 Atk / 80 Def / 92 SpD
Overall, i wanted a good Toxic staller that could set up s-rocks, and Bronzong does just that, but nothing more. I really would like 2 replace him with somone who actually can really make a large difference & be very productive under many circumstances, and well bronzong can do this, it just doesnt do it well enough. Maybe its just my set, and if so, pls tell me how i can fix it, because its a shame that a pok?mon with its poetential is failing 2 perform exactly what its meant 2 do. I would run dual screens, but that would limit him 2 either toxic and/or 1 actual damaging move, and at the same time i cant utilize dualscreens enough 2 justify it taking up 2 turns & moves. The exact same problem occurs with trick room.

I looked at it but i like my spreads and my movset on chansey, tho at least now i kknow not 2 use curse. However, i would really like 2 use a different stealth rocker than bronzong or ferrothorn, due 2 the fact that other than setting up hazards the barley contribute 2 my team needs. Any suggestions?
does anyone know wut i could use as a stealth rocker? i need something that either has good syenergy w/ other members or can spinblock, but it has 2 b bulky (as in not frosslass)
248 Hp / 248 Atk / 12 Spe
Hammar Arm / Protect / Toxic
Bullet Punch / Toxic / Protect
Im thinking about using a set like this 4 my stealth rocker. any other pok?mon that would do better?
