This is my first RMT. I've always loved running weather based teams. I love running Drought teams (despite my favorite type being Water), but I always feel they could be better. Here's the team that seems to win the most for me. Despite being a Drought team, I decided to name them all after famous black metal musicians, somewhat basing their names off their uses. A Sunny Day in Hell, Norway: A Black Metal Drought RMT. --- Demonaz (Ninetales) @ Leftovers Trait: Drought EVs: 136 HP / 252 SAtk / 120 Spd Modest Nature - Sunny Day - SolarBeam - Flamethrower - Toxic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demonaz Instead of conjuring the snow, he conjures the fire to fuel this team. Sunny Day can cause Ttar and Politoed to switch if I predict the switch properly. Toxic cripples walls. Solarbeam takes care of Gastrodon, so long as sun is up. Quorthon (Venusaur) @ Life Orb Trait: Chlorophyll EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP Modest Nature - Growth - Energy Ball - Hidden Power [Fire] - Sleep Powder http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorthon The original Grass-type Pokemon, named after the original black metal musician, is in charge of sweeping. Wish support helps keep him alive longer, especially if hostile weather is (somehow) thrown up mid sweep. Faust (Rotom-Wash) @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 HP / 168 Def / 88 Spd Bold Nature - Hydro Pump - Volt Switch - Sunny Day - Will-O-Wisp/Thunder Wave http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faust_(musician) Used as a check against Ttar and Politoed. Neither dare enter the field while Rotom-W is out, as its two STAB moves cause serious hurt to both. Sunny Day is to reset hostile weather. I've been switching between Will-O-Wisp and Thunder Wave, since Will-O-Wisp dents physical attackers, but Thunder Wave has more stable accuracy and slows down everything. Fenriz (Hydreigon) @ Choice Specs Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Draco Meteor - Dragon Pulse - Flamethrower - Focus Blast http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenriz Jack of all Trades of my team, just like his namesake. Takes care of Steel-types and Ttar with a combination of Focus Blast and Flamethrower (boosted by sun). Draco Meteor is for hit and runs, while Dragon Pulse is for staying in for extended periods. Varg Vikernes (Chansey) @ Eviolite Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd Bold Nature - Softboiled - Seismic Toss - Toxic - Wish http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varg_Vikernes Wish support to help keep Hydreigon and Venusaur alive, as well as break walls with Toxic. Like Varg, Chansey is annoying, yet we still love it. You can't live with it, but you can't live without it. Note: All deaths caused by Chansey are acts of self defense. Euronymous (Heatran) @ Leftovers Trait: Flash Fire EVs: 124 SAtk / 252 HP / 28 Spd / 104 Def Modest Nature - Magma Storm - Earth Power - Stealth Rock - Roar http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euronymous Stealth Rock support, phazer, and has potential for sweeping. Bulky enough to take a Superpower off Ttar, and potentially survive a Focus Blast. Hopefully he won't end up with the same fate as his namesake. Thanks for taking the time to read my first RMT and I look forward to all comments and suggestions!
