Introduction This team is a relatively stall-y team that uses spore a ton. The team is mostly centered around subseeb Giratina, with the rest of the team playing various roles that aim to take care of any counters to Giratina. There aren't any outstanding sweepers on the team, for the most part the team's made of bulkier Pokemon who use a lot of spore and switching moves to keep momentum going and gradually chip down opponent's health. The Team Mega Metapod (Giratina) @ Toxic Orb Ability: Poison Heal EVs: 252 HP / 72 Def / 184 SpD Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Leech Seed - Infestation - Substitute - Spore Giratina is sort of the meat of the team. It's EV's and nature maximize bulk, and Poison heal and leech seed keep it sustainable. The Toxic Orb also has the bonus of keeping it from being put to sleep and Imposterproofing it. Essentially, Giratina just spores opponents, sets up sub, and then uses infestation and leech seed to chip down opponent health while trapping them and healing. Ghost typing protects it from being trapped by other stallers, allows it to check imposters of Regigigas, and lets in switch in on predicted Normal or Fighting moves. Against Imposters of its self, leech seed can be thrown down on them on a predicted switch in or on their first turn out in hopes of winning the speed tie, but if they manage to get down a sub they either have to pp stalled out or killed with Greninja. Imposters won't be trappable though, since they get ghost typing, so seeding them will probably only force them out, not kill them. tøp tier (Registeel) @ Safety Goggles Ability: Prankster EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpD Careful Nature - Spore - Rapid Spin - U-turn - Haze Registeel is here to deal with setup sweepers, remove hazards, and act as a pivot. Setup and Contrary sweepers can be dealt with well with prankster haze, and spore as well, depending on the risk of running into safety goggles, dazzling, and whether they seem capable of OHKOing. Besides just using Haze, though, Registeel can be brought in pretty safely in a lot of situations to spore and then u-turn out. Steel typing makes it a great hazard remover, as it resists stealth rocks and doesn't worry about Toxic Spikes. Safety Goggles protect it from Magic Bouncers bouncing back spore. Gay Power (Regigigas) @ Focus Sash Ability: Turboblaze EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def / 4 SpD Adamant Nature - Extreme Speed - Fake Out - Swords Dance - Baton Pass Regigas is here to kill frail sweepers and provide momentum. The Fake Out Extreme Speed combo 2HKO's common sweepers like Deoxys-A, Pheromosa, and Mewtwo-Y. Turboblaze is run to bypass Dazzling. It can 3HKO Rayquaza-M after a swords dance, and hits Chansey hard. Swords dance also allows it to do good damage agaist bulkier Pokemon. There aren't really any Pokemon on the team that benefit much from Baton Pass-ed Sword Dance boosts, but Baton Pass still allows it to act as a pivot while letting teammates deal a little more damage. Generally fake out and baton pass work have great synergy with Registeel's Prankster Spore and U turn. Frog dude (Greninja-Ash) @ Focus Sash Ability: Water Bubble EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Timid Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Sparkling Aria - Dark Pulse - Vacuum Wave - Taunt Greninja breaks substitute stalls (including Imposters of Giratina) and kills fragile sweepers. Taunt stops common stallers from doing much, and leaves them open to Water Bubble boosted Sparkling Aria, which hits through sub, or STAB dark pulse if they resist Water. The sash lets greninja hit fragile sweepers hard, take a hit, and then finish them off with priority Vaccuum Wave. Max speed investment lets Greninja outspeed Gengar-M and Taunt Entrainment sets or Dark Pulse Mold Breaker sets. IStoleThisSet (Zygarde-Complete) @ Rocky Helmet Ability: Regenerator EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD Impish Nature - Knock Off - U-turn - Whirlwind - Core Enforcer Zygarde is here to be a bulky pivot who weakens opponents or does a little chip damage and then U-turns out to keep momentum and deal chip damage and activate regenerator. Whirlwind is mostly for bulky substitute pokemon that Greninja can't deal with, namely Kyogre, who resists Sparkling Aria and often runs Electric special moves. Core Enforcer and Knock Off just generally aim to mess with opponents, though this team benefits especially from knocking off Leftovers and Safety Goggles and suppressing Psychic Surge, Electric Surge, Poison Heal, and Regenerator. Snek (Rayquaza-Mega) @ Focus Sash Ability: Liquid Ooze EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Timid Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Spore - Substitute - Oblivion Wing - Giga Drain Rayquaza is here as a late-game clean up sweeper. Spore lets it set up substitute safely and then heal up with Giga Drain or Oblivion Wing. Focus Sash makes sure it can get off that first spore against strong, faster pokemon, and Liquid Ooze ImposterProof's it.
