I have never liked weather. Or trick room. The simple fact is, I don't like the pokemon normally found on such teams. While I originally built my teams off of my top favorites, (Volcarona, Scizor, Metagross core anyone?), I found that using my favorites is not a viable strategy. As my play style evolved, I eventually switched to pokemon I enjoy USING rather than just liking. I shifted it around, and found a balanced team that is fun to play with, and wins over half the time.(24/26) I am currently 1563 on the OU ladder. Tornadus-Therian (M) @ Flying Gem Trait: Regenerator EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP Jolly Nature - U-turn - Acrobatics - Superpower - Toxic Tornadus is an excellent pivot on my team. His fast U-turns and ground immunity are extremely helpful on such a fairly fragile team. The physical set takes opponents by surprise, and acrobatics does massive damage to any pokemon, but especially the fighting types (I HATE CONKLEDUR!) that plague my team. While those are the main two moves he uses, superpower adds coverage, and Toxic is for bulky psychics. Starmie @ Life Orb Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef Timid Nature - Recover - Ice Beam - Thunderbolt - Hydro Pump Starmie loves switching on bulky waters and jolting sense into them. She also enjoys crushing heatran, and revenging dragons. She is also bulky enough to switch into must resisted attacks. And with her BoltBeam coverage, she is redundant with genesect, so if they take one out, they still have to deal with the other, usually at full health. She is also useful to absorb status. Genesect @ Choice Scarf Trait: Download EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Atk Mild Nature - U-turn - Flamethrower - Ice Beam - Thunderbolt I love bug types. I had to have at least one on my team, and what bug better than genesect? Aside from being the coolest legendary in the game (Come on, its a PURPLE PREHISTORIC GIANT CYBORG BUG WITH A CANNON!), he is mainly used as a lead and revenge killer. With his awesome U-turning pivot, and his great coverage, he is a reliable check to much of the metagame. Breloom (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Technician Shiny: Yes EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP Jolly Nature - Bullet Seed - Mach Punch - Spore - Low Sweep I used Breloom before it was cool. While his subpunch set is awesome, technician changes Breloom from an undefeatable force of annoyingness, to a mighty killer, capable of crushing all in its path. Mach punch is awesome, epic revenger, etc... Bullet seed demolishes bulky waters, Spore is a free shut down button, but Low sweep is his specialty. With low sweep, once he scares out the fighting weak stuff, low sweep makes up for his lower speed, and is REALLY powerful. And it really helps with the sporing. Heatran @ Air Balloon Trait: Flash Fire EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 HP / 4 SDef Modest Nature - Fire Blast - Earth Power - Stealth Rock - Dragon Pulse At a glance, my teams looks a bit fire weak. Heatran deals with that nicely. He not only stops fire, but is a perfect Heatran counter. Most Heatran I encounter don't have air balloon, allowing mine to switch in and get them. And, seeing as he forces lots of switchs, he can set up stealth rock. He would also be great at dispatching Kyurem-B... If I ever faced one. I have only encountered ONE. You would think the lower ladder would be full of them. I mean, i have encountered several Electivire! Terrakion @ Expert Belt Trait: Justified EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef Jolly Nature - Close Combat - Stone Edge - Swords Dance - Quick Attack Terrakion don't care. It can be a bit of a pain to get him in, but once he is in, he crushes everything in his path. Priority can be a pain, and he can only rarely keep up a boost, but who cares. CC and SE are really all he needs to crush everything. So what do you think? Any tips on how to improve my team any?
