"Team 99" Hello there. I built this team because I wanted to use one of my favorite Pokemon, Kingler, who doesn't get a lot of love even in NU. The team's goal is to stack entry hazards and weaken the opponent with attacks until Agility Kingler can pull off a sweep. Actually I found the five "supporting" members to work so well together that literally any lategame sweeper could be used in Kingler's spot but for now I'm sticking with him. So, enjoy, and please comment and suggest improvements. Uxie @ Leftovers Levitate | Calm 248 HP, 160 Def, 100 SDef - Psyshock - Stealth Rock - Yawn - U-turn Uxie, sitting in spot #1, is my Stealth Rock user and generic defensive guy. It's designed to take both special and physical attacks well, and the EVs give it equal defenses. Yawn + U-Turn shys away things who think they can set up on Uxie and has the potential to give me back some lost momentum. Psyshock is STAB and hits the Hitmons and Cryogonal's weaker defense. Druddigon @ Rocky Helmet Rough Skin | Impish 248 HP, 252 Def, 8 Atk - Dragon Tail - Earthquake - Sleep Talk - Rest This team had some problems with status (burn in particular) and stat boosters, so I added this RestTalking, Phazing Drudiggon. Since I have Rest, Leftovers aren't all that necessary and I can run Rough Skin + Rocky Helmet, which is fun against Cinccino, Entei, U-Turners, and so on. Earthquake to round out attacking coverage. Nidoqueen @ Life Orb Sheer Force | Modest 252 SAtk, 252 Spd, 6 Def - Earth Power - Sludge Wave - Thunderbolt - Ice Beam Nidoqueen IMHO is way too powerful for RU and I hope she's voted out soon. As long as she's around, however, it would be kinda silly not to use this monster on a competitive team. Since good special walls are very hard to come by in RU, her job is to simply punch holes into the opponent's team to open the doors for my endgame sweeper. I run double STAB + BoltBeam, and so far there wasn't a situation in which I missed Flamethrower. It's nice to have that great Poison STAB when your opponent still hast that Grass/Flying/Bug Type/Levitator on his team. Kingler @ Life Orb Shell Armor | Adamant 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 6 HP - Crabhammer - X-Scissor - Brick Break - Agility I love Kingler, and this team was built around him. There are many obstacles to overcome with this fella, like his piss poor HP and SpDef, low base power attacks, and his slightly unreliable signature move. But the more the opponent's team gets weakened by hazards and Nidoqueen, the less they will enjoy seeing Kingler get that Agility Boost. Anyway, as for this set: None of my moves are boosted by Sheer Force, and Intimidate is only used on Qwilfish and Druddigon, both of whom Kingler won't ever sweep anyway, so I opted for Shell Armor to be safe from crits which is actually a REALLY nice thing to have. Kingler always comes out late game when it's in the position to set up an Agility, since the rest of this team works together so well that I never have to bring him out early. Brick Break is used over Rock Slide so I have something against Kabutops, Ferroseed, Clefable, Klinklang etc. X-Scissor OHKO's Sceptile and finishes off Rotom-W/Liligant and Psychic Types. Misdreavus @ Eviolite Levitate | Calm 252 HP, 156 SDef, 100 Def - Shadow Ball - Taunt - Will-O-Wisp - Pain Split Obviously Missy D's main job is to keep my valuable rocks and spikes from being spun away. Again I chose mixed defensive EVs in order to sponge hits from both sides (some SpDef helps with Nidoqueen and Moltres, for instance). Taunt is always useful and helps me against stall/trick room teams as well as slow walls such as Ferro or Munchlax. Will o' Wisp of course hurts physical sweepers and Pain split gives me some much needed recovery. Accelgor @ Focus Sash Sticky Hold | Timid 140 Spd, 252 SAtk, 116 HP - Bug Buzz - Hidden Power (Rock) - Spikes - Giga Drain The ninja bug is my offensive spiker. Uxie and Drudiggon appreciate some spikes for their phazing business, while Kingler likes to have them around for his endgame sweep. With Timid and 136 EVs, Accelgor outspeeds 252+ Aerodactyl, the rest is dumped into HP for more durability. Bug Buzz is obligatory STAB while HP Rock gives me the best coverage against Fire and Flying Types. Giga Drain to regain some health and OHKO Rock/Grounds and Rock/Waters who think they can come in and rawk me.
