I can see this set being particularly effective versus sun teams, but do Tyranitar's really feel inclined to stay in on Surf? As cool as Draco Meteor's Power is, I would rather have Dragon Pulse>Draco Meteor to further prevent Tyranitar from messing you up. How does a Water Gem/Life Orb Rain Dance boosted Surf deal with Scizor? For my contribution I am using the original Genesect: Kabutops @ Life Orb Trait: Swift Swim EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP Adamant Nature - Stone Edge - Waterfall - Rapid Spin - Superpower / Night Slash This is RU Kabutops with a slight modification to the OU metagame. Basically I cam to a position in teambuilding where I needed a check to Tornadus-T and a Rapid Spinner. Impossible with Choice Scarf Starmie except with Kabutops! The reasoning behind Kabutops is that since Tornadus-T is always used in Rain, Kabutops should always receive the Swift Swim boost to outspeed him when the occasion comes. Overall, he makes a great check to offensive rain by smashing their offensive pieces to bits with Waterfall. Outside of rain, he makes a good offensive spinner since he can maim Ferrothorn with Superpower or be the bane of Jellicent with Night Slash. Kabutops is a paticularly cool pokemon on Sand teams, where he recieves the 1.5 sp. def boost to compliment his decent physical bulk. Kabutops @ Leftovers Trait: Swift Swim EVs: 252 HP / 20 Atk / 176 Def / 60 SDef Impish Nature - Stone Edge - Rapid Spin - Waterfall - Stealth Rock / Night Slash / ???? You can even opt to run a bulky spread in Sandstorm. Kabutops has had success with a bulk spread in the lower tiers, so it is quite possible to have success with it in OU. Only 20 Atk EV's are need to OHKO with Stone Edge and min speed still outspeeds Tornadus-T in rain. In Sandstorm you can tank Hurricane's more easily while in rain you can threaten to outspeed and KO with either Stone Edge or (after a -1 defense from Superpower) Waterfall.
