Hi all, this one of my more recent teams. I've been working on it for a while now, and I'm very satisfied with my choice in Pokemon. It employs a strange strategy of dragon dance/baton passing to my dragony friends, while having some bulky mons prepared to stall out in the event of emergencies. My wins/losses rating sits roughly at 50/50. I'm not trying to swap Pokemon at this point, I'm just trying to fine tune movesets to get a better coverage. So rather than trying to explain the team in a nutshell, here they are: Smeargle @Focus sash Technician Jolly 252HP/4Sp.Def/252Speed Spore Dragon Dance Baton Pass Stealth Rock Smeargle is my lead, who sets up for the main strategy: a dragon dance boosted outrage festival! But more on that later. The focus sash ensures he'll never be OHKO'd immediately. His moveset is fairly straight-forward, but I've always felt like stealth rock was the odd move out. At the same time, I don't know what to swap it with. I've tried magic coat, and I never really noticed a difference. And basically, after the first baton pass, Smeargle will be too weak to last long. I considered adding destiny bond, but I realized that a weakened Smeargle probably wouldn't last long enough to perform the attack. Any advice on this move would be amazing! Salamence @Lum Berry Moxie Hasty 252Atk/4Sp.Atk/252Speed Draco Meteor Earthquake Fire Blast Outrage Salamence is an awesome dragon that unfortunately lives in the shadows of Haxorus and Hydreigon. I tend to switch between baton passing to 'Sally' and Gyrados depending on the opponent's team. Draco meteor is the move that stands out to me, as I rarely use it. For the most part, Salamence outrages himself to death, with a lum berry to snap itself out of confusion. Fire blast has been helpful against some steel types, but with Heatran as popular as he is, Salamence wouldn't really be my main choice of attack. On the other hand... Gyrados @Lum Berry Moxie Adamant 252HP/252Atk/4Sp.Def Dragon Tail Waterfall Outrage Ice Fang Gyrados would do just fine. Gyrados has another straight-forward set up. I really like dragon tail, as I've disrupted many strategies with it. Waterfall is just an awesome STAB to have - Heatrans and other fire types really hate this one! Ice fang is in there for defence against other dragons. Unfortunately, Gyrados will typically lose in a speed contest with other dragons. I may consider changing Ice fang to stone edge. Jellicent @Leftovers Cursed Body Calm 252HP/4SpAtk/252SpDef Pyschic Scald Recover Toxic Say what you want about gen 5, but I was always drawn to Jellicent for some reason. I've always managed to stall and drive my friends absolutely insane with Jellicent. So thus begins the stall portion of my team. In the unfortunate event that both dragons go down early, I will make my opponent's life more difficult with Jellicent, Breloom and Magnezone. Jellicent may need a shadow ball, though I'm not really sure which move to drop. But I realized the importance of this as I don't really have any ghost moves on this team. But Jellicent is built to last, and can withstand a barrage of attacks, especially while spamming recover. Breloom @Toxic Orb Poison Heal Impish 252HP/4Atk/252Def Dynamic Punch Bullet Seed Spore Leech Seed Honestly, I never really like Breloom, until I used him in a stall situation. Then I fell in love; poison heal and leech seed can drive any opponent crazy! And dynamic punch is a nice little addition, especially since it's the only fighting move I have. I realized that's a problem recently, so I need to figure out where I can squeeze another fighting move in. Finally, spore is awesome in tight situations. All in all, Breloom last long and usually can KO at least two enemies before going down. Magnezone @Leftovers Sturdy 252HP/4Def/252SpAtk Thunderbolt Hidden Power Ice Thunder Wave Signal Beam Last but not least is Magnezone, my steel dude that's full of surprises. Not only is he a good psychic killer with signal beam, HP ice usually does a nice bit of damage to the dragon types. He can also usually tank a few serious hits before falling. Magnezone has gotten me out of a lot of hairy situations, and really pulls the stall/wall aspect of my team together. So that's what I have for now. Any advice is appreciated. As I said earlier, I'm not here to change Pokemon; this is my team for now. Of course, I will be making others, but I enjoy the weirdness, and I look forward to your advice. Thanks all!
