Hello Smogonites. This is one of my older teams, but I was still using it until Blaziken was banned. I started using this team a little after B/W was released on PO and I peaked at around 1250-1300. But yeah, Blaziken is banned now so I really don't have a use for this team anymore. Volcarona (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Swarm EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Substitute - Quiver Dance - Fiery Dance - Bug Buzz My lead. Volcarona is an awesome lead. I really like to use this set because it lets me setup on bulky Waters like Politoad, Jelicent, etc and Ninetails leads. Once I get to +2 or +3, I can setup to +5 or even +6 behind my sub with ease. I went with Fiery Dance instead of Flamethrower to get some Spec. Atk boosts without the need for Quiver Dance. Blaziken (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Speed Boost EVs: 252 Atk / 72 SAtk / 184 Spd Naughty Nature (+Atk, -SDef) - Protect - Hi Jump Kick - Overheat - Stone Edge Sadly, Blaziken is now banned, but it was great while he lasted. I run a mix-ish set, I tried to make similar to the physical-mix Infernape, a great mixed attacker from 4th Gen. Max attack for the most damage of course. The speed EVs allow me to outspeed 252 Speed, Jolly Excadrill in the sand. Overheat does a decent amount of damage to Gliscor and KOs Infernape. The moves are pretty self-explanitory. Hi Jump Kick and Stone Edge for coverage. Overheat for physical walls. Protects helps with other Blazikens using Hi Jump Kick and snatching those Speed Boosts. Mamoswine (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Snow Cloak EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Stealth Rock - Superpower - Earthquake - Ice Shard Hmmmmm. Pretty simple Pokemon. Mamoswine is another one of my physical attackers. It sets up Stealth Rocks when I can. Ice Shard is wonderful for taking down Garchomp and other Dragons. Earthquake is pretty powerful. The only problem is Snow Cloak... But I felt that being able to hit Ferrathorn for Super-effective damage was too much to pass up. Oh well. Virizion @ Leftovers Trait: Justified EVs: 108 HP / 212 Def / 60 SAtk / 128 Spd Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk) - Calm Mind - Giga Drain - Hidden Power [Ice] - Focus Blast @@@@<333333333 Completely passed all of my expectations. Not only does it completly slaughter Rain teams, Virizion is just a hell of a sweeper. After one boost, Virizion becomes a specially defensive monster; with no added EVs! Along with the bulky stats, Virizion is an awesome counter to Tyranitar, maybe even the best counter ever.(?) It completely destroys the Ferrathorn+Jelicent combo. Walls the hell out of Landros. Awesome awesome Pokemon. With the banning of Shandera, it wouldn't surprise me if Virizion becomes more common. Slowbro (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Regenerator EVs: 192 HP / 252 Def / 64 SDef Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk) - Toxic - Slack Off - Flamethrower - Surf A Water type that actually kills Ferrathorn! Slowbro stops many threats in thier tracks, like Blaziken, Conkuldurr, Excadrill, etc. I went with Surf over Scald for the damage... Toxic>Burn imo. Pretty basic set/Pokemon. Thundurus (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Prankster EVs: 132 HP / 252 SAtk / 124 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Thunder Wave - Volt Switch - Hidden Power [Ice] - Focus Blast Last but not least... Thundurus! A solid Prankster user is almost a must nowadays so I went with Thundurs for that role. Spreads paralyze, kills Gliscor, just a complete team player. Focus Blast.. again. Ferrathorn and Excadrill are both common switch ins. The EVs, are pretty random aswell. Instead of spreading putting a ton in speed, I decided to put them in HP, so it can take a lot more hits, that also explains Leftovers rather than Life Orb.
