Opening Act Hi! I'm Jukain, and this is my 2k RMT. I remember when I thought I would never make it to 1k -- 2k is just unbelievable. This team started as actually an updated version of my 1k RMT, which was also a sun team, but it is now way different than anything I've ever run before. This team is fairly new, but I like it more than anything else I have (well, my other good team was already RMT'd in the form of a double RMT posted by Electrolyte). It's an offensive sun team featuring some interesting Pokemon. There's also some shoutouts at the end! Without further adieu, let's get on to the team (no teambuilding because there isn't enough to talk about). Line Up I've Got Magic Tails, k? Ninetales @ Leftovers Trait: Drought EVs: 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 Spd IVs: 0 Atk Timid Nature - Flamethrower - Will-O-Wisp - Sunny Day - Substitute Possible changes: I've considered running Roar > Substitute despite liking this set so much, as it helps with SubCM Latias a lot. However, it has trouble setting up, so I'm not too worried about it. And besides -- if it's SubCM, it doesn't have Psyshock, which means it can't OHKO Venusaur without a lot of boosts. Toxic > Will-O-Wisp is also something I've considered, as Rotom-W can prove to be a bitch, as considering Venusaur is my revenge killer and cleaner, I can't switch it in overly much. However, Venusaur is an okay option, as it can switch in, take a hit, and predict the next switch-in at no cost to itself. Heck, if sun is up and the opponent lacks a weather inducer (or an alive one at least), then I can set up Growth and sweep. One Nasty Bug Volcarona @ Air Balloon Trait: Flame Body EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd IVs: 0 Atk Timid Nature - Quiver Dance - Fire Blast - Bug Buzz - Giga Drain Possible changes: HP Rock is something I've considered for opposing Volcarona/Salamence/Dragonite/Gyarados, which are big threats. Thoughts on this? Spin Around, Spin Around - Don't Stop Starmie @ Leftovers Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 248 HP / 32 Def / 4 SAtk / 224 Spd IVs: 0 Atk Timid Nature - Recover - Scald - Psyshock - Rapid Spin Possible changes: Nothing -- everything on this set is needed. Got Bud? Venusaur @ Life Orb Trait: Chlorophyll EVs: 72 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 180 Spd Timid Nature IVs: 2 Atk / 30 SAtk / 30 Spd - Growth - Giga Drain - Hidden Power Fire - Sludge Bomb Possible changes: I've considered running Modest for that power and even tested it out, but Timid is too important for those Scarf Latis and musketeers. HP Ice is also something I've considered for Dragons. Thoughts on HP Ice? You're Trapped and Never Getting Away Dugtrio @ Focus Sash Trait: Arena Trap EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd Jolly Nature IVs: 0 SAtk - Earthquake - Stone Edge - Stealth Rock - Reversal Possible changes: No. Sweet, Sweet Revenge Jirachi @ Choice Scarf Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Jolly Nature IVs: 0 SAtk - Iron Head - Ice Punch - U-turn - Healing Wish Possible changes: I need every move on the set, so no. Closing Scene Well, that's my team! I like it, but it's not perfect, so suggest improvements! In particular, I'm pretty Double Dance Landorus-T weak. Hang on, there's some shoutouts!
