Like my team or the comics? Luvdisc this threat! ^^^ ...And trap. ___ ___ ___ Hello, welcome to my second RMT. Here's my first RMT, but now I'm lost of interest with my old team due of metagame changing again and rain are overly used. So I thinking for a new team, with the release of Shadow Tag Gothitelle, I decide to make a team around her, so this is the team. The idea of this team is to gain momentum (VoltTurn) and involve heavy trapping with 3 pokemon having ability with trapping effect. I saw two overlapping core: Gothitelle + Dugtrio and Dugtrio + Genesect, I thought to myself and why not having both? Gothitelle + Dugtrio core is about to sacrifice Dugtrio with Memento after cleaning the threats and let Gothitelle set up with ease, while Dugtrio + Genesect is for baiting Heatran, Ninetales, and such, then trap them. Magnezone for another form of trapping and eliminate Steel-types to give Dragonite a room for sweeping, and Starmie for Rapid Spin support. After laddering on PS!, I got a nice 1500+ rating, pretty nice but still a long way to be the best. Teambuilding Process (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Teambuilding Process (open) Teambuilding Process (close) First, I added Genesect, Dugtrio, and Gothitelle for my somewhat core trio --- Then, I think I'll make a team that revolve around trapping, and I heard Pursuit is a form of trapping too, I added Tyranitar, STAB Pursuit is cool. --- Why not make this team a VoltTurn team? Which pokemon that I use with Volt Switch? Rotom-W might be the best candidate. --- Maybe another U-Turn user? And it should be Dragon type, Hydreigon? --- After few testing, this team suck, then I realized, Magnezone can double as Trapper and VoltTurner! Tyranitar's sandstorm is actually nerf my team (I don't like sand anyway) so I replace him with it. --- My team is too Special-centric, I think I need a Dragon with Physical offense, and its better levitating, enter Dragonite. --- So, Dugtrio need his Focus Sash intact when enter battlefield and Dragonite hates SR too, I need Rapid Spin support, here comes Starmie. IMPORTABLE: Code: Numero Tres (Dugtrio) (M) @ Focus Sash Trait: Arena Trap EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature - Stealth Rock - Memento - Earthquake - Rock Slide Ms. Gothi (Gothitelle) (F) @ Leftovers Trait: Shadow Tag EVs: 252 HP / 212 Def / 44 Spd Bold Nature - Calm Mind - Psyshock - Rest - Hidden Power [Fighting] CattleKiller (Magnezone) @ Choice Specs Trait: Magnet Pull EVs: 252 SAtk / 108 Spd / 148 HP Modest Nature - Volt Switch - Flash Cannon - Hidden Power [Fire] - Thunder Probe (Genesect) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Download EVs: 92 Atk / 252 SAtk / 164 Spd Hasty Nature - U-turn - Ice Beam - Flamethrower - Thunderbolt Starmie @ Leftovers Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 240 HP / 52 SDef / 216 Spd Timid Nature - Rapid Spin - recover - Scald - Psyshock Dragonite (M) @ Lum Berry Trait: Multiscale EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Jolly Nature - Dragon Dance - Outrage - Fire Punch - ExtremeSpeed So, that's my team, if my pokemon need replacements I can say that Starmie and Dragonite is the one that you may change.
