So I got into competitive battling, made a team, posted it as a RMT and....it sucked. So I revised my philosophy, and built a team around one Pokemon-Scizor. It's an amazingly strong Pokemon with access to priority and Swords Dance-what's not to like? So...my team! AT A GLANCE (WASH FORME) UNDER THE MICROSCOPE THE LEAD Heatran (M) @ Life Orb Ability: Flash Fire EVs: 172 HP/84 SPD/252 SAtk Mild Nature (+SPAtk -Def) - Stealth Rock-stealth rock entry hazard support. Yeah... - Hidden Power [Grass]-Killing Swampert and other bulky waters. - Overheat-VERY powerful hit and run STAB - Explosion-suicide for low health situations Heatran gets up stealth rock, which Scizor needs to do its job. It also eliminates fires, which are obviously the biggest threat to Scizor. It can kill Machamp with Overheat (a very big threat), and kill some bulky waters with HP Grass. THE MIDGAME SWEEPER Flygon (M) @ Choice Scarf Ability: Levitate EVs: 228 Atk/252 Spd/28 HP Jolly nature (+Spd,-SpAtk) - Earthquake-Basic, powerful STAB. - Stone Edge-kills annoying flyings - Outrage-Basic STAB, kills Dragons.....and everything really. - U-turn-For unfavorable matchups. Well, ScarfGon is back after being an LOGon for a bit. It can hit Kingdras if it's not raining, Dragonites, and especially other Flygons. It's a very good revenge killer, and patches up a lot of my team's weaknesses. THE STALL BREAKER Crobat (M) @ Leftovers Ability: Inner Focus EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd Jolly nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Brave Bird-General STAB and huge damage to Shaymin - Super Fang-Stall breaker move because it always does the same amount of damage - Taunt-another stall breaker move, stops setup and entry hazards - Roost-healing and annoyance value. One big threat to Scizor are setup sweepers. They come in on a resisted Bullet Punch, get a free setup turn, and sweep. Crobat is here to prevent it. It's a great wall breaker with Super Fang, and can rip apart Shaymin, another threat to my team. THE ANNOYING SEMI-STALLER Rotom-w @ Life Orb Ability: Levitate EVs: 252 Spd/252 SAtk/4 HP Timid nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Substitute-Make a Sub and hide behind it, then heal up with Pain Split or hammer away with a STAB move - Thunderbolt-general STAB. - Hydro Pump-kills Tyranitar, Rocks, and Fires. - Pain Split-The main move of this set. Healing, taking down defensive opponents, and general annoyance value. After much consideration, Rotom has been changed to a SubSplit set (props to TheLegendKiller). This Pokemon can be REALLY annoying. It sets up a Sub, and kills Tyranitar and other problematic Pokemon with its STAB moves. Or, if it cannot actually hurt them, it brings them down with Pain Split. THE LATE-GAME SWEEPER Scizor (M) @ Leftovers Ability: Technician EVs: 252 HP/76 Atk/180 SpDef Adamant nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Swords Dance-general setup purposes. - Bullet Punch- Scizor's main killing move, extremely strong after an SD - Roost-healing so Scizor can stay in longer. - Brick Break-kills Blissey and Magnezone. This Pokemon is amazing. He can sweep entire teams after one Swords Dance. I bring him out late in the battle to finish off the opponent. When opponents' Pokemon are low on health, he comes in and kills them all with repeated bullet punches. I have switched him to a specially defensive set (again, props to TheLegendKiller) that takes on Blissey and Magnezone with ease. THE BULKY WATER Suicune @ Leftovers Ability: Pressure EVs: 4 HP/252 Spd/252 SAtk Timid nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Surf-Basic STAB. - Calm Mind-Setup move - Ice Beam-general coverage - Hidden Power [Electric]-gyarados and other water and flying types. Suicune is my only semi-bulky Pokemon. It comes in and hopefully gets a CM, then destroys things with its 3 damage moves. Stops Gyarados, a great Scizor counter because of Intimidate. So...that's it. Comments please!
