Hello Smogon RMT! I wanted to have a team for the upcoming Autumn Friendly (http://pglhelp.pokemon.com/en/gbu/autumn_friendly_2012/), but I was at a loss as to where to start, and how to(possibbly) intefrate members of my singles team. After reading up on the helpful articles on here, and doing some random matchup testing, I beleive it's ready to be presented, and critiqued! Team At A Glance Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet Iron Barbs Relaxed 128/0/252/0/130/0 - Thunder Wave - Gyro Ball - Power Whip - Curse Ferrothorn is my bulky physical wall, and also a great lure for Chandelure (Heh!). Ferrotorn works wonders against rain teams, and unsuspecting Trick Room teams. I'll often switch into him to force a switch, and then set up a Thunder Wave on the incoming Pokemon. Especally if it's a Fire-type, I'll switch into Chandelure, absorb the Fire attack, and set up a sub. When not doing that, a Curse-boosted Gyro ball is often enough to 2HKO most threats. Chandelure @ Leftovers Flash Fire Timid 0/0/0/252/6/252 - Heat Wave - Substitue - Calm Mind - Shadow Ball Chandelure works as a brilliant switch in for Ferrothorn and Scizor. Immune to both Fire- and Fighting- type attacks, as well as Hitmontop's Fake Out, he was made for double battles, He is always included when there's suspicion of a sun team, because with a Sun + Flash Fire + Sub-CalmMind, He can handle just about anything, and sweep like no one's business. I've noticed that my opponents will often ignore him when he's subbed, instead focusing on the un-subbed teammate, allowing him to get up 1 or 2 Calm Minds. Haxorus @ Life Orb Mold Breaker Adamant 0/252/6/0/0/252 - Dragon Claw - Outrage - Brick Break - Earthquke Haxorus is my Speedy Attack sweeper. Outrage works well, although it's random, which is why Dragon Claw is there.When he gets brought out, it's to blast through anyting slower than 149 speed, untill he is killed, or kills himself. And that's about as advanced as he gets. Toxicroak @ Black Sludge Dry Skin Adamant 246/252/12/0/0/0 - Sucker Punch - Drain Punch - Bulk Up - Substitue This guy is like Chandelure's mirror image. Whereas Chandelure is a strong, Special wall/sweeper who does well in the sun, Toxicroak is a strong Physical wall/sweeper who does well in the rain. He pairs up great with Latios, letting Latios heal the substitute damage with Surf. Latios @ Expert Belt Levitate Timid 6/0/0/252/0/252 - Dragon Pulse - Surf - Thunderbolt - Hidden Power (Fire) Latios is a great mixed bag. His moveset gives almost perfect type coverage (The reason for the Expert Belt), rain boosts Surf, sun boosts Hidden Power. He teams well with Toxicroak, and Dragon pulse is a ridiculously powerful STAB move, without the stat drop that Draco Meteor brings. Scizor @ Choice Band Technician Adamant 252/252/0/0/0/6 - U-Turn - Pursuit - Bullet Punch - Super Power And, finaly: Scizor! He's the bow to tie the whole team up. An immunity to sandstorm, a priority STAB move, great Chandelure bait, and able to reset the Choice Band untill the bitter end. He's a great revenge killer, and works as an Attack sweeper when Haxorus isn't viable. He's also a great lead, being able to get off a Bullet Punch first, do a U-Turn, or Pursuit on a predicted switch! And that's all, folks! Rate, comment, give helpful advice, because the registration date is quickly approaching! Thanks for reading!
