Alakazam Slam Introduction: Alakazam is my favorite pokemon ever since gen 1. Now getting back to the pokemon scene i wanted to create a team around my favorite mon. His diverse movepool and great ability Magic Guard made him and great candidate as a great late game sweeper. Since the new meta is based around weather I decided to be unique and make it a Sand Team. Enjoy and Leave me some advice as this team is far from perfect Team Building Process First and foremost i needed a diverse attacker that could take out alot of alakazams threats and Tyranitar was perfect being tanky and can put a dent in anything Good ole Skarmbliss a classic D/P wall combo that i adore both are immune to toxic(Well blissey has natural cure) not to count for my alakazams magic guard making my team anti stall Lastly I added a painsplit Gengar to demolish Chansey/Blissey and a mixed scarfed infernape to revenge kill Terrakion and Scizor etc A Closer Look Alakazam @Focus Sash Timid Magic Guard 252 Speed 252 SpA 4 Health Psyshock Focus Blast Hidden Power(Ice) Shadow Ball The thing my team was built around the Alakazam. I run focus sash on him over life orb because my team doesnt need the raw power it provides. The focus sash lets me kill Moxie Mence, Weakened Dragonite ,Terrakion and Conkeldurr with ease. Due to my Magic Guard I am guaranteed to not be harmed by entry hazards making a spinner on my team not needed. Tyranitar @Leftovers Adamant Sand Stream 252 Health 252 Attack 4 SpD Pursuit Stealth Rock Earthquake Stone Edge This Pokemon is my lead and gets the stealth rocks up every game. This thing is so bulky in the sand its very suprising what hits can OHKO him that are not fighting. I use pursuit over crunch to kill Gengar Latios/Latias Alakazam and potentially kill things that i wall on the switch. Blissey @ Leftovers Bold Natural Cure 252 hp 252SpD 4 Defense Wish Protect Toxic Seismic Toss Your typical blissey set nothing special here can wall pretty much anything that isnt physical all the EVs are in hp and special defense to make it as bulky as possible def EV's are not needed due to me having a skarmory and a Tyranitar. Wish can pass to alakazam if im expecting a switch i can get alakazam back to full health to kill another person or keep my weather inducer alive. Skarmory @Shed Shell Impish Sturdy 252 health 252 Def 4 SpD Roost Spikes Whirldwind Drill Peck One of my guys that sets up entry hazards and the phazer of my team. Shed Shell is so i can avoid magnezone.Im running Drill Peck because of no leftovers i cant afford to use Brave Bird. Gengar @ Life Orb Timid Levitate 252 Speed 4 health 252 SpA Pain Split Shadow Ball Focus Blast Substitute This guy is an animal and synergizes well with the sandstorm. The idea is to switch in on a wall and set up with a sub. With Pain split he can outstall all blisseys because of the resdiual damage from life orb and sandstorm pain split is turned into a 3rd attack pretty much making this guy my primary wall breaker Infernape @ Choice Scarf Naive Blaze 252 attack 252 speed 4 SpA Fire Blast Close Combat Stone Edge U-Turn Revenge kills alot of common threats such as moxie gyarados can outspeed and suprise things that would normally kill it. Can also destroy genesect and with the all so common steel type hes too good to pass up. Well let me know what you think in the comments i want to know what everybody thinks this is also my first rmt so sorry if the format is wrong.
