I'm relatively new when it comes to competitive pokemon, and I'm having a blast so far. I made this team around Conkeldurr and so far I'm having great luck with it. Any tips that would make it better would be greatly appreciated. The strategy behind this team really depends on my opponents pokemon. Typically I pick a pokemon to sweep with at start based on their team's weaknessess, and remove that pokemons counters. Shrubs (Ferrothorn) @ Leftovers Trait: Iron Barbs EVs: 252 HP / 88 Def / 168 SDef Relaxed Nature - Spikes - Stealth Rock - Leech Seed - Power Whip My Physical Wall and stealth rock user. His Power Whip is deceptively strong and has netted a few kills that have surprised me. Nurse (Blissey) (F) @ Leftovers Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef Calm Nature - Wish - Protect - Toxic - Flamethrower Blissey has won many games for this team. Without it I don't think this team would work as well as it has been. Mr. Derp (Conkeldurr) (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Guts EVs: 120 HP / 252 Atk / 136 SDef Adamant Nature - Bulk Up - Drain Punch - Mach Punch - Ice Punch I made this team with using this pokemon in mind. His high attack and good bulk make him a mainstay on my team. Shuriken (Starmie) @ Life Orb Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Rapid Spin - Ice Beam - Thunderbolt - Hydro Pump Starmie has saved me from a loss countless times as well as providing rapid spin support. I've found it works well with Gengar, Tyranitar and Conkelderr in making a good offensive base. Stalin (Tyranitar) (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Sand Stream EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Adamant Nature - Pursuit - Crunch - Stone Edge - Superpower Tyranitar gets rid of most things that Conkeldurr doesn't like. Trickster (Gengar) @ Black Sludge Trait: Levitate Shiny: Yes EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature - Protect - Shadow Ball - Focus Blast - Destiny Bond I use this guy as a late game sweeper, or I'll try to Destiny Bond any threats that remain.
