Approved by Blarajan Little Cup Teambuilding Competitions Hey Guys! You may of seen the OU version of this project and now I am here to host the LC version of it. Basically the purpose of this project is to practice our teambuilding skills. I will choose two Pokémon every week or so and you guys will be building a team using those two Pokémon. Also, feel free to comment on each others teams! Ask questions about why a certain Pokémon is used and perhaps even suggest changes a person could make to make his team function even better, this will help us gain a greater knowledge of lc teambuilding after all, just be sure to not be rude to posters even if their teams suck. All Teams Submitted Must Have: *The two pokemon I have listed *An Importable of the Team *a description of the team (around a paragraph) *oh and sprites because sprites are pretty n_n The description doesn't have to be super long, it just has to explain why you chose specific Pokémon, why you chose their movesets and explain how the team and the individual Pokémon function in a battle. (I will added a Little Cup example of what a post should look like but this is also a good example) Ok so this is an example around Snover + Murkrow (team kinda sucks I know) Importable Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Tirtouga @ Eviolite Trait: Solid Rock Level: 5 EVs: 4 HP / 212 Atk / 12 Def / 76 SDef / 180 Spd Adamant Nature - Shell Smash - Waterfall - Stone Edge - Aqua Jet Snover @ Choice Scarf Trait: Snow Warning Level: 5 EVs: 108 Atk / 188 SAtk / 196 Spd Naive Nature - Blizzard - Giga Drain - Hidden Power [Fire] - Ice Shard Drilbur @ Eviolite Trait: Mold Breaker Level: 5 EVs: 36 HP / 252 Atk / 212 Spd Jolly Nature - Earthquake - Rapid Spin - Rock Slide - Stealth Rock Murkrow @ Eviolite Trait: Prankster Level: 5 EVs: 36 HP / 236 Atk / 20 Def / 20 SDef / 188 Spd Jolly Nature - Substitute - Roost - Brave Bird - Sucker Punch Mienfoo @ Eviolite Trait: Regenerator Level: 5 EVs: 156 HP / 76 Atk / 196 Def / 76 Spd Impish Nature - Fake Out - Drain Punch - U-turn - Knock Off Shelmet @ Eviolite Trait: Shell Armor EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def Bold Nature - Spikes - Acid Armor - Recover - Bug Buzz Description Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Ok! So I used the classic SubRoost Krow + Choice Scarf Snover for my team because Choice Scarf Snover just has such an easy time against sand teams because it can outspeed and ohko Hipopotas and Drilbur, two essential Pokémon on sand teams. It can also remove Chinchou, one of the best counters to SubRoost Murkrow. Murkrow in turn, can provide a lot of pressure on the opponents team with strong Brave Birds and priority Sucker Punch and it can scare out the Fighting-types that threaten Snover letting Murkrow often get up an easy substitute. Murkrow also has another function and that is ensuring that Misdreavus doesn't completely run through my team. Tirtouga provides this team with a powerful sweeper capable of cleaning teams late game. Its sweep is made much easier by the pressure that Mienfoo and Murkrow can place on teams and the hazard support that Shelmet and Drilbur provide. Tirtouga's typing also lets it set up on Murkrow which is great since this team has 3 Flying-type weaknesses. I opted for the bulky shell smash set since I often need it to tank Brave Birds and the fact that Snover's hail breaks the regular Shell Smash Tirtouga's Sturdy. Drilburs main function on the team is setting up Stealth Rocks and rapid spinning for the team. Rapid spinning is very important with Shelmet, Murkrow and Snovers weakness to Rock. Drilbur's EQ and Rock-type resistance also help my team deal with Rock-types. Mienfoo provides the team with a great pivot and the amazingly useful Fighting-type. Along with Drilbur, it helps my team deal with Rock-types since it resists the type and carries Drain Punch. U-turn is just so useful for gaining momentum and Knock Off is also useful to get rid of Eviolites, making a late game sweep with either Snover or Tirtouga even easier to achieve. Shelmet is the glue of the team, it is capable of walling the Fighting-types that Tirtouga and Snover tend to lure. On these Fighting-types it can Acid Armour making their attacks do nothing, and then set up Spikes which obviously helps this team secure Kos. (I am aware that Shelmet has no evs but it is basically max Hp and Sp Def lol) After a week or so I will close the submission stage and then we will move on to voting. I am a fan of Electrolytes idea of voting by PM so send your votes to me via PM. You can vote for your own team, but if this rule gets abused I will not allow self-voting. Every team that wins will be placed in the team building hall of fame! Ok so the first round will revolve around Hipopotas and Pawnaird! + Note: I will not allow reservations for teams. However you can post an importable of your team and then add in the description later if your really afraid that someone will post a similar or identical team to yours. With that said lets start this project!
