Okay. so this is my first ever competitive team. I was messing around in the tiers and I really like the Pokes in UU and I love Darmanitan so I tried to make a team centered around him. I've been winning about 65% of my Showdown battles using the UU Singles match finder. Marriland user Flygoncool21 helped me. Bold are edits. Darmanitan (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Sheer Force Shiny: Yes EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Flare Blitz - Rock Slide - Superpower - U-turn Darmanitan is the center piece of my team. I was messing around on the Smogon UU Tier page and saw him and thought "Yup, I'm building a team around him." And now here I am. I did some digging and the other five Pokes are the ones I feel would best compliment him. He is the steak of this team, everyone else is the sides. I went with Jolly nature because his best defense is speed. Blastoise (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Torrent Shiny: Yes EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef Bold Nature - Rapid Spin - Scald - Roar - Toxic I chose Blastoise for a couple reasons. He gets ineffective damage against Darmanitan's water checks and is bulky enough to take some hits from Ghost types like Chandelure. I was thinking about getting rid of Roar because I never use that. I'm looking for more diversity from him but I'm just not sure what. I love RS and Toxic the other two are the ones I'm iffy on. Bronzong @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate Shiny: Yes EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef Relaxed Nature IVs: 0 Spd - Stealth Rock - Gyro Ball - Toxic - Earthquake Good ole Bronzong. Man I love this guy. Great typing. Excellent lead for Stealth Rock. Can Toxic some Pokes and do great STAB damage with Gyro Ball. Has a lot of bulk so he can last a few rounds. Unfortunately I ALWAYS get his with Heat Wave or Fire Blast and it OHKO's him and I HATE IT!!! I'm seriously thinking of giving him Heatproof just because that would give him one more move for either switching out to come back later for more Stealth Rock or taking on any Poison U threats (Gengar? Crobat?) Rhyperior (M) @ Lum Berry Trait: Solid Rock Shiny: Yes EVs: 252 Atk/ 4SpD/ 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Rock Polish - Earthquake - Stone Edge - Ice Punch I used to have him as my tank but Exbo suggested the Rock Polish set and it's beautiful. I went with Ice Punch over Mega Horn because I already have a Mega Horn user in Heracross. I'm still deciding between the Life Orb or the Lum Berry but I'm going with the Lum Berry for now. He's a late game sweeper which may leave my CS Heracross open to be replaced since that's the same role. I've had issues eliminating Rhyperiors checks in order to use him properly though. Zapdos @ Leftovers Trait: Pressure (Will switch to Lightingrod once DW is released) Shiny: Yes EVs: 248 HP / 252 SDef / 8 Spd Calm Nature - Thunderbolt - Volt Switch - Hidden Power Grass - Roost Loving Zapdos. I would prefer a more offensive set but the set I have has worked very well. Then once DW Zapdos comes out and I can switch to LightningRod HELLO! That makes him even better! He's the perfect counter to Darmnitan and Rhyperiors checks of Water. I was considering replacing Volt Switch with uhhh Heat Wave but I'm not sure if that'll be good. Excellent defensive typing and he's faster than most of his checks so I can slam them with HP Grass. Heracross (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Moxie Shiny: Yes EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP Jolly Nature - Close Combat - Megahorn - Stone Edge - Earthquake Heracross is my revenge killer and late game sweeper. I just HATE being locked into one move with the CS. I've seriously considered replacing it with the Expert Belt or something that boosts speed but me being a noob to battling I've decided to listen to the more experienced players. I've had great luck with late game sweeping with him before and Moxie is just absolutely wonderful. Overall, with the edits I've made, they've been good. I'm still learning how to play and anticipate. Heck, I have brain farts and forget about typing at times. Thanks guys!
