What's up Smogon? You guys may have seen me around the forum, I've posted a few teams here before, and now I'm back with another installment. I made this team a couple days ago to SD Lucario since I've heard people say its really good if you can play it right. I went a weatherless team this time around since weatherless is the one of the few teams I haven't built. Plus I got tired of using Weather in general. All right so without further ado, let's see the team. Team Preview In Depth Big Kat (Landorus-Therian) (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Intimidate EVs: 244 HP / 64 Atk / 200 Def Adamant Nature - Earthquake - Stealth Rock - U-turn - Stone Edge I chose Landorus-T for a few reasons. It gives me a way to check Terrakion, Scizor, Tyranitar with Intimidate and scare them out with the potential Earthquake. The second reason is Spikes and Toxic Spikes, I always seem to run into someone who sets up them up and it really put a damper on my teams. The last reason is have something to switch in to an EQ for Lucario. (Yes, I now realize that 5/6 of my team is unaffected by EQ.) This also allows me to have a little VoltTurn action of him and Rotom-W. Wooosshhh (Latias) (F) @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Thunderbolt - Dragon Pulse - Recover - Thunder Wave I don't exactly remember my thought process for adding Latias besides for Support and baiting in Tyranitar so I can use Lucario to kill it set-up on it with an SD and deal some damage before switching out. T-Bolt is carried to hit Water types. Dragon Pulse for STAB. Thunder Wave to cripple a sweeper to ease thing for the team. I actually think I could use a different set for Latias to fit the team better. Sly Cooper (Lucario) @ Life Orb Trait: Justified EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Adamant Nature - Bullet Punch - Close Combat - Crunch - Swords Dance The test subject of this team. Lucario thus far as been great for me. The only thing that has held it back for me has been Jellicent. I ran into a few of them last night and it really put pressure on me since it could just recover off any damage I dealt to it. So because of this I switched out Extreme Speed for Crunch. The decision of Bullet Punch and Extreme Speed was BP helps me kill Terrakion and Tyranitar and it is STAB. MayTag (Rotom-Wash) @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 248 HP / 28 SAtk / 232 SDef Calm Nature - Volt Switch - Hydro Pump - Will-O-Wisp - Pain Split Standard Rotom-Wash. I needed a Water resist and Rotom seemed to find fit and I wanted to make a VoltTurn pair with Landorus-T. The set is pretty straight forward even though I wish this had more a little more power. I would adjust the EVs but I doing that would my losing bulk and not being to tank a few hits. Hephaestus (Heatran) @ Leftovers Trait: Flash Fire EVs: 248 HP / 252 SDef / 8 Spd Calm Nature - Stealth Rock - Lava Plume - Protect - Roar Heatran was my choice to counter Sun teams and phaze set up sweepers and Baton Passing teams. So the only set that made since to me for that job was the Specially Defensive set. I set up SR, Lava Plume to hopefully burn something and Roar to phaze. Hades (Hydreigon) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Modest Nature - Draco Meteor - Fire Blast - Focus Blast - Surf Last spot on the team and I realized I didn't have a Scarfer. I didn't know what to choose but somehow settled on Hydreigon. To be honest, Hydreigon hasn't been that great for me. So if anything this guy can be replaced for a better Scarfer. I contemplated Salamence but the weakness to SR kinda turn me off it since I don't have a spinner or a way to prevent hazards. Last words There you have it, that's my team. I've had decent success with it but I don't think it's quite there yet in terms of near great. I havent had to many issues with the team besides Dragonite, Salamence, Tentacruel, Jellicent and Ferrothorn. I really shouldn't have problems with Ferrothorn since I have Heatran but they just keep protecting over and over. I also need a better way to deal with Dragons, maybe Mamoswine over Hydreigon. Well that's it for the RMT. Any and all help is welcome. Thank you.
