So I'm new into competitive pokemon. When I started my new job, I was surprised so many people played. Not only did they play Pokemon, but they played competitively! I soon learned the ins and outs of EV training, types, ect. Here is my first team that I have put together. I'd like to know what you all think about it, as well as if you had any suggestions. Azelf @ Focus Sash Ability: Levitate EV's: 252 Speed/252 Special Attack/4 Special Defense Naive Nature (+Speed/-SpAtt) -Stealth Rock -Psychic -Taunt -Explosion Azelf primarily comes out and sets up Stealth Rock. If I just hang on with my focus sash, I usually come back with explosion. Taunt stops others from setting up on me, and psychic is to pack a punch thanks to Azelf's high special attack. Volcarona (F) @ Lum Berry Ability: Flame Body EV's: 160 HP/252 Special Attack/96 Speed Timid Nature (+Speed, -Attack) -Psychic -Bug Buzz -Fiery Dance -Quiver Dance Volcarona (or Mothra as I've nicknamed her) is my favorite Pokemon on this team. It regularly gives my friends problems, and if it gets just one Quiver Dance in, he can sweep through a team. Fiery Dance is a solid move with STAB, and with a chance to have Special Attack raised, becomes an even more solid move. Bug Buzz also has STAB, and with one quiver dance, a STAB Bug Buzz can take out a Cresselia with a OHKO. The Lum Berry is used because I've had friends recently try and paralyze Volcarona to stop his sweeping abilities. Scizor (M) @ Choice Band Ability: Technician EV's: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD Adamant Nature (+Attack,-Sp.Att) -U-Turn -Bullet Punch -Superpower -Quick Attack Scizor is my revenge killer. He can come out and clean up on anybody, and his U-Turn, Bullet Punch, and Quick attack with his technician ability and choice band actually pack a good punch. Ferrothorn (F) @ Rocky Helmet Ability: Iron Barbs EV's: 252 HP / 48 Atk / 208 SpD Sassy Nature (+SpDef,-Speed) -Spikes -Leech Seed -Power Whip -Protect This guy is unreal. My favorite wall, has 361 Defense and 341 Special Defense at level 100. He can cripple attackers with his iron barbs and rocky helmet, and once Leech seed is down, good luck taking him out unless you have a fire type move. Starmie @ Life Orb Ability: Natural Cure EV's: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Timid Nature (+Speed, -Attack) -Surf -Ice Beam -Thunderbolt -Rapid Spin Starmie is very important to my team. The reason being, he can get rid of Stealth Rock with Rapid Spin which is really harmful to Volcarona. Starmie is quite fast, and is able to get an Ice Beam on Dragon types. Thunderbolt comes in handy, as my friends do not expect him to have it. Cofagrigus (M) @ Ghost Gem Ability: Mummy EV's:252 HP / 136 Def / 120 SpD Bold Nature (+Defense, -Attack) -Calm Mind -Shadow Ball -Will-O-Wisp -Haze Cofagrigus is new to my team, which I originally made due to an annoying Dream World Bibarel that a buddy had (Mummy removes his ability). Lately, I have been using him thanks to his great defense and Will-O-Wisp. He has fared relatively well for me recently, and has squeaked his way onto my team. Sometimes I replace him with Hippowdon for similar defense, or Dragonite/Machamp if I want to be more offensive. Let me know what you think! Keep in mind this is my first team I have ever put together, and also my first team posting to Smogon. Thanks!
