Hi everybody! I've been playing pokemon since I was a little kid and I keep doing it with the same nice feeling. I started with the videogames and it was so fun, but slowly I was feeling more and more interested in the competitive side of the game. After trying few play styles, I found in the sand my niche due my Tyranitar fixation in this weather-dominated metagame. After reading all your suggestions I made some changes (bolt ones) Here we goes with the RMT! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Tyranitar (M) @ Choice scarf trait: sand stream E.V.'s: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 6 HP Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) -Crunch -Pursuit -Stone Edge -Superpower Here is my weather inducer and a kind of revenge killer/trapper. It works wonders under the sand as it takes little damage from heavy hitters like genesect, heatran, or thundurus-T. And as it goes scarfed it can deal nice OHKOs to things like starmie, latios/as and gengar trapping them, or stone eadging things like weakened dragonites, gyarados, unboosted salamences... It can cover a lot of stuff and does a good work at what it does. Scizor (M) @ choice band trait: technician E.V.'s: 248 HP/ 252 Atk/ 6 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) -Superpower -Bullet punch -U-turn -Pursuit I've been using Scizor as a revenge killer and a hit'n'run poke for a long time to maintain the momentum with u-turn; but now I'm trying to use it as a boost sweeper or late game cleaner with the swords dance/ bullet punch set. I know that Superpower doesn't have too much synergy with the SD/ BP... Anyway I don't like too much the boost sweep set, but I've been raped by it few times so I decided to give it a try. Latias (F) @ life orb trait: levitate E.V.'s: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd/ 6 HP Timid nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Surf - Roost - Psyshock - Draco meteor I've been using her blue counterpart for a long time with the same moveset , but didn't like his live quick, die young phylosophy, so I cut his blue thing and painted red his body (don't ask her for his old life). I like to heavy smash everything that doesn't resist draco meteor or cripple walls like chansey/blissey/Ferro/Skarmory and render them almost useless for the rest of the play. Thunderbolt and phychic are for coverage and STAB. I've been using this new set with some succes, having a good coverage against few threats I haven't before, and with roost I can fly around longer. Skarmory (M) @ Rocky helmet trait: Sturdy E.V.'s: 252 HP/ 232 Def/ 24 Spd Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk) -Stealth rock -Roost -Whirlwind -Brave bird This is my spiker and a part of my GlisSkarmsy core. It's harder and harder set up the spikes in this highly agressive metagame, so if I can release one or a couple of lays, I feel satisfied enough. Skarmory is also a good response to those annoying gliscors that try to stall me , or those boosted Scizors or Terrakions demanding be whirlwinded... and of course to those outrage locked dragons that like to stamp it's heads aganist my rocky helmet again and again while I'm using roost. Skarmory where my spiker, now is my rocker.... not much changed here aside the fact that I'm not so stressed as before laying 3 rounds of spikes. Gliscor (M) @ Toxic orb trait: Poison heal E.V.'s: 252 HP/ 184 Def/ 72 Spd Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk) -Protect -Substitute -Toxic -Earthquake Wow! This thing is so GOOD that must be banned! Not only have a fantastic typing, it also have a godsend ability in poison heal making it almost unstatusable. It's part of the GlisSkarmsy core, switching into the electric, earth, and fighting attacks. It's completly walled by skarmory, steel types with an untouched air ballon, Bronzong, Xatu and other poison heal gliscors. The first time I've see this set didn't like it too much because the lack of coverage......until I tryed. With this set, gliscor is so annoying that it makes cry. Being able of switching often to a large portion of the metagame to poison it is simply amazing. Every player should give it a try to quickly fall in love with it. Rotom-W (M) @ Leftovers trait: Levitate E.V.'s: 248 HP/ 240 SDef/ 20 Spd Calm nature (+SDef, -Atk) -Volt switch -Will-o-wisp -Pain split -Hydro pump I've changed my olde Chansey for my brand new Rotom. This thing works quite well, having a good synergy with the rest of the team (specially scizor) as is a good anti-metagame pokemon. I'm still testing it, but like it, and like this set. I've been testing this team for a while with great succes! Well. That's all! Any rate would be appreciated. I wouldn't finish without congratulating Smogon for the hard work it's doing for the pokemon fans like all of us. And at last but not least I would apologize for my bad english as it's not my mother language. Thankyou everybody!
