"Every enemy they face takes them to a new level of power" ~Krillin Introduction I made this team several months ago after I first saw Special Landorus and decided to make a team around it. This team is very special to me because it's the first sand team that I actually enjoyed using and that actually worked for me in BW2 prior to me only being comfortable using rain teams in BW1. It's also very offensive which was different from my style of play previously being stall. It's a team that I enjoyed using for a while now and that has won me many battles. Having two scarfers for some reason surprises any opponents which gives me the element of surprise. Also HP Fire on Latios never failed to defeat those pesky steel types and was also for some reason uncommon at the time. Overall this is one of the teams I'm proud of and enjoyed using throughout the months. I decided to go with a Dragonball Z theme for this RMT because it's one of my favorite anime that I enjoyed a lot and still do. With the new Battle of the Gods movie it's reeling me back in again. Every Z-Fighter is known for being one of the strongest fighters in the DBZ universe who are also the protectors of it. They always manage to win a battle even when it seems there's no hope of winning and I think this team does just the same. So I hope you enjoy me theme and team.

I decided to go with Latios and not Latias because I needed more power. | | | | Next I decided to go with Terrakion because I really needed something that was fast and powerful. I also lacked Physical power (Jirachi is nice but not as powerful) so Terrakion was my choice. | | | | | Last but not least, Rotom-W who really glues to team together. It takes down some few uncommon threats that could really hurt me team such as Gyarados, Metagross and other Pokemon. At a Glance Team in Detail The Saiyan Prince Vegeta Tyranitar - Leftovers EV’s: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Sp.Def Trait: Sand Stream - Careful Nature -MOVESET- -Crunch | -Pursuit | -Stone Edge |-Stealth Rock I choose this Tyranitar set because it's a great special wall and any Latios/Latias that switch into it are goners. It can also survive a Focus Blast from Gengar if it doesn't have Life Orb and other threats. Defensive Politoeds and Ninetales can't touch Tyranitar. Even if they burn it, it still won't go down easily. Crunch is a powerful STAB move that can easily KO many Pokemon such as Latios/Latias, Gengar, Alakazam, Reuniclus, etc. Pursuit is also very useful since it's usually pretty obvious when your opponent is going to switch out allowing me to damage it before sending out another Pokemon. Now Stealth Rock is pretty self explanatory, helps prevent my opponent from switching out freely or hurting it each time he switches out. Now I choose Stone Edge to hurt Levitaters or Flying type Pokemon. Volcarona can also be a pain for my team but Stone Edge always OHKO's. Overall this is probably my favorite Tyranitar, being offensive and at the same time, defensive. Half Blooded Saiyan Gohan Landorus - Life Orb EV’s: 4 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spe Trait: Sheer Force - Timid Nature -MOVESET- -Earth Power | -Focus Blast | -Psychic | -HP Ice Now I went with four attacks Special Landorus because Psychic is such an underrated move on Landorus. It easily deals with Fighting type Pokemon that would hurt my team badly like Conkeldurr, also allowing me to OHKO Gengar, Breloom, Venusaur, etc with it. Earth Power is a very powerful move, with Sheer Force taking in the recoil damage I can easily spam this all I want with no consequence. Before Special Lando was commun, people used to switch into Forretress all the time expecting Earthquake but they were all surprised when Earth Power took them out. Focus Blast is a move I tend not to rely on since it usually fails me most of the time but when it does hit, it does some serious damage. It allows me to damage Skarmory, which is good since if Latios and Rotom-W are out of the picture, I can take it out with that. It also does a lot of damage to Blissey, doing about 33% each attack IIRC. HP Ice is used for those pesky Dragons Pokemon. Definitely my favorite Lando set. Trunks The Savior of the Future Jirachi - Choice Scarf EV’s: 252 Atk / 4 Sp.Def / 252 Spe Trait: Serene Grace - Jolly Nature -MOVESET- -Iron Head | -U-Turn | -Ice Punch | -Fire Punch I really love this Jirachi set because of its movepool and speed. Iron Head is a really great move that grants you 60% to flinch upon using it. I'll admit, it's not always reliable but it comes in handy when you really need it. U-Turn grants me momentum when I know you opponent is going to switch out which really helps me. It's also a good move against Latios since Latios can't really touch it unless it predicts me switching into it by using HP Fire. It can also take special attacks well which I really like about Jirachi. Ice Punch is really handy. Whenever I face a Dragon, I make sure I have Sand up. Most of the times my opponent will use Dragon Dance on a Pokemon like Dragonite, so I predict this and go into Jirachi. Since Sand will hurt it, it takes away it's Multiscale ability allowing me to OHKO it with Ice Punch. Fire Punch is for steel types such as Scizor. Scizor can be a real threat to me late game if Rotom-W is gone, and Fire Punch is really what saves my butt. Back when Genesect was OU, I would always lead with my Jirachi fully knowing that my opponent would lead with Genesect, allowing me to OHKO it with Fire Punch. The Lower Class Saiyan Son Goku Terrakion - Choice Scarf EV’s: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Trait: Justified - Jolly Nature -MOVESET- -Close Combat | -Stone Edge | -Earthquake | -X-Scissor My second scarfed user. His job is to revenge sweep or late game sweep. I count on its speed and power to take down a Pokemon. Close Combat is a very powerful STAB move does hits like a truck. Not even Skarmorys are safe from it. Stone Edge is used against Pokemon that resist Close Combat, like Gengar, Volcarona, Reuniclus, etc. Earthquake is sometimes mostly just a filler but can come in handy against Steel/Fire Pokemon. X-Scissor is used for Pokemon like Celebi, since not many Terrakion actually carry X-Scissor, I can always take it down with it. The Namekian Warrior, Piccolo Rotom-W - Chesto Berry EV’s: 4 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spe Trait: Levitate - Timid Nature -MOVESET- -Hydro Pump | -Will-O-Wisp | -Volt-Switch | -Rest I prefer this set than the normal Pain Split set because I'm really not good at predicting when to use Pain Split and I think this is a good set to bluff Scarf. Hydro Pump does a lot of damage and is used against Fire/Gound/Rock types that come at its way. I guess the main purpose of this Rotom is to will o wisp as many Physical Sweepers as possible. When people lead with Breloom, I use Will O Wisp since they mostly go for Spore and surprise when it wakes up. Depending on the situation I'll either stay in or switch out. Volt Switch helps me gain momentum and get rid of those pesky water type Pokemon like Politoed and Keldeo. Rest is used when Rotom-W is at low health. If I'm up against stall and my Rotom has a status problem, they always go for Protect to avoid being hit one last time by it but surprise when it gets full health thanks to Chesto. Hope for the future, Gotenks Latios - Life Orb EV’s: 4 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spe Trait: Levitate - Timid Nature -MOVESET- -Draco Meteor| -Recover | -HP Fire | -Psyshock This guy is a really valuable part of my team. It's perfect for taking down Keldeo which can sweep me late game. It's mostly meant to take down Steel types like Skarmory, Ferrothorn, Forretress to keep them from setting up hazards. Recover is to keep it alive as much as I can to keep dealing damage. Draco Meteor is my hit and run move. I always switch out since it takes away -2 Special Attack but it's worth it considering how hard Draco Meteor hits. It's also very fast which helps a lot. The only thing I don't like about Latios is how easily it dies at the hands of Tyranitar. Once it catches you, there's no hope.

I've come across some flaws that I would like to fix. Keldeo and Scizor can be a problem late game since it can sweep me if Rotom-W isnt around. Another problem is Lando-T. It's annoying because it U-Turns out a lot and it's Intimidate forces me to switch back out. I've used this team a lot, and it'll always be one of my good teams. I hope you enjoyed my RMT. Please rate and help me make this team better. Thanks!
