Magic Mushrooms If there's anything you want, come back cause it's all still here. Well, this team really didn't require much indepth thought like the other RMT's I posted. It was really made to show how to use Parasect extremely well, which it did. It utilizes entry hazzards so switching after Parasect comes in hurt, and it makes countering things a lot easier. It has a wall breaker which is extremely needed for any team, and it has a pokemon to clean up. Oh, enough about me talking about it, let's get straight into the team. @ Focus Sash Ability: Pressure EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spd/6 SAtk Hasty nature - Stealth Rock - Superpower - Extremespeed - Shadow Ball Overview: This is a sucide lead that is made to set down Stealth Rocks. It's really quite simple, I either hurt the pokemon that's leading, then place rocks. Or I place rocks than hurt the opposint pokemon. Extreme Speed is to pick off weakened pokemon / sashed pokemon. Super Power is for the (lol) occasional Darkrai lead that isn't scarfed. Shadow Ball is for other Psychics and the occasional Giratina. Focus Sash is so I am gaurenteed to get Stealth Rocks down. Why not another lead: Well in my honest opinion, Deoxys is the best sucide lead that's out there. Everything else is running random Lum Berries to counter Darkrai leads that it's honestly getting stupid. So I thought, "what kind of lead would get its job done, then get out of my way?" Sucide lead came into my mind. It was a choice beetween Deoxys-f or Deoxys-e and both do the job extremely well. Deoxys-f though deals way more damage than Deoxys-e can, which is the main reasion I picked him. He also can 2HKO a Dialga lead with Super Power, which is pretty cool. --- @ Choice Specs Ability: Drizzle EVs: 244 Spd/240 SAtk/24 SDef Modest nature - Water Spout - Surf - Thunder - Ice Beam Overview: Specs Kyogre is the strongest pokemon in the Uber Metagame. Water Spout 0-2HKO's everything in the game, the only way to threaten it is to send in a pokemon that is faster and will Weaken Water Spout. He is a wall breaker, and provides support to me with rain. He is a fairly great answer to Light Screen less Lugia, and he really doesn't care about resistances (fuck yeah Water Spout) Why not another Wall Breaker: Kyogre is the best pokemon, barring arceus, hands down. She can 2HKO pokemon that are 4x resistant to his Water Spout. Dialga can be used to wall break, and he does a great job with Specs and Draco Meteor, Kyogre has longer lasting powered attacks with Water Spout. With that Kyogre also provides rain for my little bug to get healed 18% each turn. Kyogre can hit the majority of the Ubers for Super Effective damage. Which is hard to pass up. --- @ Leftovers Ability: Dry Skin EVs: 248 HP/8 Atk/96 Def/156 SDef Adamant nature - Spore - Stun Spore - X-Scissor - Light Screen Overview: You've probably seen me spamming Parasect around somewhere, and for good reason. Parasect comes to the Uber game with extremely useful type resistances, and (surprisingly) with quite a bit of bulk. Parasect is a status inducer, which for Ubers, is a terrible thing. Most teams carry a rest talker due to Darkrai being so popular, but hardly any teams carry a cleric. Meaning that once a pokemon is statused, he is as good as gone. Which is why Paralysis is such a threatening status. Ubers like to be fast, and hit first, something which they can't due when under status. Palkia HATES to be paralized, as does Darkrai. Why not another status inducer: Resistances, and what he can do for me. Celebi is still 2HKO'd by Specs Kyogres Water Spout, and only can spread paralysis around through Thunder Wave, which Groudon is immune to. Breloom may be faster than Parasect, but that doesn't matter since he's slower than all Ubers. With that being said, he also can't come in on any attack (besides Thunder) and come out on top. Poliwrtah can sub-punch and what not, but Hypnosis is too shakey of accuracy for me. Darkrai could be an option over Parasect, but once again, Parasect has those key resistances and immunities that allow him to switch in over and over, always posing a threat. --- @ Choice Scarf Ability: Sand Veil EVs: 6 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd Jolly nature - Dragon Claw - Outrage - Earthquake - Stone Edge Overview: Garchomp is now fully comfortable in the Uber game with his new Choice Scarf set making him the best revenge killer, ever. He out runs Timid Scarf Palkia and will OHKO with Dragon Claw if rocks are up. Or he can just use Outrage, and hope that your opponent isn't carrying something in reserve to hurt our little friend. Stone Edge is to deal some damage to Lugia, while the Dragon attacks are fairly straight forward. Earthquake is the real only iffy move here, it can be used to hit Dialga, Tyranitar and the few steels in Ubers, but if you'd prefer Fire Blast, or Fire Fang, then by all means. Why not another revenge killer: Garchomp is one of the fastest pokemon in Ubers, also he out speeds everything except Scarf Mewtwo and Scarf Darkrai with this set. He is able to revenge kill Palkia, which is fantastic for any occasion, and he is mostly here to "clean up". Garchomp, like Parasect, has many useful resistances so he can come in and pose a threat. Garchomp is for another answer to Thunder (besides Tyranitar and Parasect), he shrugs off Groudons Earthquakes, along with Parasect, and takes some of the Rock attacks thrown at Lugia and Parasect. So Garchomp provides key defensive traits to my team, while being a powerful Revenge killer. --- @ Leftovers Ability: Pressure EVs: 252 HP/54 Def/204 Spd Bold nature - Reflect - Whirlwind - Roost - Ice Beam Overview: Lugia is arguably the best wall in the game. He has a plethora of resistances, and comes with Screens and a Phzing move. Roost is a great move, getting rid of his Electric weakness for a turn, if he moves first. Ice Beam was used because, in Ubers, coverage is more important that STAB. More people have been using Adamant Swords Dance Rayquaza, so I opted for the EV's to allow me to outspeed him and set up Reflect. Calm Minders don't do much to Lugia as she has an amazing SpDef stat, and she can blow them away with Whirlwind. Why not another wall: Lugia is the best wall in Ubers. That is a fact. She is faster than the mjority of the threats, and she can take a hit. Giratina is the slowest Uber (barring Parasect) and can really only use Will-o-Wisp to cripple physical sweepers, which has meh accuracy. Giratina will be wrecked by Swords Dance Outrage / Dragon Claw from Rayquaza, and all she does is add another Dragon weakness to my team. Giratina, paired with Forretress is an extremely solid wall combo, for those who want to make an Uber stall team. --- @ Choice Band Ability: Sand Stream EVs: 252 HP/38 Atk/220 SDef Careful nature - Pursuit - Stone Edge - Crunch - Earthquake Overview Tyranitar is my Ubers Trapper. He comes in on psychics, and then threatens with Pursuit or Crunch. Most Psychics tend to think they can OHKO this monster, so they stay in, meaning the I use Crunch more than 80% of the time. Earthquake is for Dialga and the occasional steel type pokemon that will switch in. Stone Edge is mainly for STAB when you don't know what's coming in, and for a Rayquaza outpredict if he think you're going to use Earthquake. Why not another Trapper: Tyranitar is the best Uber trapper. Scizor just can't compete. Tyranitar has boosted SpDef, can change the weather, making Thunder less accurate, attracts Water attacks like a magnet, making Parasect easier to switch in. ParaTar is a great wall combo, resisting every one of their weaknesses, something which Scizor would also fail to do (fuck fire). --- I'm pretty much retiring this team, and to show what kind of team Parasect should be used on. Though I'm sure a lot of you creative guys can figure out how to use him better than I can.
