So I've just gotten into competitive play, although I've been enjoying watching it for the better part of a year, and I want to finally start myself. I wanted to build a team that was a little different, which was probably my first mistake, but I tried to cover my ass where I had to and this is the result, please tell me where I went horribly, horribly wrong. Meganium @ Leftovers Overgrow Evs:4 HP/252 Def/252 SpDef Calm (+SpDef, -Atk) ~ Substitute ~ SolarBeam ~ Toxic ~ Synthesis So I started with something I made up which was a Meganium that Walls using Sub and Synthesis, setting up Toxic and getting off SolarBeams when it can while under a drought/sunny day set up by my Ninetales. Ninetales @ Leftovers Drought Evs:136 HP/252 SpAtk/120 Spe Modest (+SpAtk, -Atk) ~ Sunny Day ~ SolarBeam ~ Will-O-Wisp ~ Flamethrower A standard Sunny Day Ninetales I chose because Meganium that I wanted to be my core had a lot of basis on the sun being up and the Sunny Day set was built specifically to win weather wars. Terrakion @ Air Balloon Justified Evs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe Jolly (+Spe, -SpAtk) ~ Rock Polish ~ Swords Dance ~ Close Combat ~ Stone Edge I needed a coverage for Fire which could threaten my Meganium so I decided to go with Terrakion for the rock typing over water because water is weaker in the sun. It's a Double Dance Set that I chose because on the chance that my Meganium was down I wanted to be able to set up a sweep that didn't require my wall. Heatran @ Choice Scarf Flash Fire Evs: 252 SpAtk/4 SpDef/252 Spe Timid (+Spe, -Atk) ~ Flamethrower ~ Overheat ~ Hidden Power ~ Earth Power A Scarfed Heatran I chose because I felt that Ninetales was weak as far as fire type coverage for the team and was only really there to make sure my sun stayed up. Gliscor @ Toxic Orb Poison Heal Evs: 252 HP/184 Def/72 Spe Impish (+Def, -SpAtk) ~ Swords Dance ~ Earthquake ~ Ice Fang ~ Taunt I chose the Gliscor as a lesser secondary wall to last out any turns I had to wait for Meganium's Toxic to finish up. Went with a slightly more offensive set because aside from Meganium's Toxic I don't have any lasting damage unless Heatran or Ninetales get burns and Gliscor might have to be able to deal damage as well as take it. Gyarados @ Life Orb Moxie Evs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe Jolly (+Spe, -SpAtk) ~ Dragon Dance ~ Waterfall ~ Stone Edge ~Earthquake Gyarados was meant to come into play in case I failed to set up my sun before Ninetales fainted, which would make Meganium useless and would also mean that I could make better use of the Water typed support. So please tell me if the idea is even worth saving, or indeed if I should just try to learn a bunch more before ever trying again. I'm sure I did something wrong because I was immediately sweeped online when I tried to play. Please and Thank you.
