My First Competitive Team So I made an RU team with cherubagent on #mentor that is focused around Crawdaunt setting up and sweeping. My team Member 1. Steelix (252Hp, 220Def, 36Atk) This is my Stealth Rocker and he functions as a great shuffler as well as a physical wall. He will always pull his weight and is especially powerfull once I get all my hazards up with great bulk alongside roar. Steelix doest great against most common choice users such as Rotom-C, Rotom, and Mantetric locked into volt switch, and things like Entei or Druddigon. Item: Leftovers Ability: Sturdy Moves Stealth Rock Gyro Bal Roar Earthquake Member 2. Quilfish (Jolly 80 Def 252 Hp 176 Spe) I love this guy he sets up spikes, stops sweepers, and takes hits. The only thing I hate about Quilfish is its design. He sets up spikes, taunts other hazards pokes, and t-waves sweepers. He is also some more helpful bulk and takes on fast pokes with t-waves and neuters fighting types. The given spread also lets him surprise base 55 speed pokes with a faster t wave or taunt to prevent set up as well as stopping opposing qwilfish that run slower sets from getting up their own hazards. Item: Black Sludge Ability: Intimidate Moves Taunt Thunder Wave Waterfall Spikes Member 3. Crawdaunt (Jolly 252 Atk 252 Spe 4 Hp) Honestly Crawdaunt is the point of this team because he is my favorite Pokemon. When he can set up he is good, when he can't not really but how powerful he is when I do is to good to pass up. What he does is set up a sub DD and sweep. Item Leftovers Ability Adaptability Moves Dragon Dance Crunch Waterfall Substitute Member 4. Entei (Adamant 252 Atk 252 Spe 4 Hp) This guy is here because my team was in need of a strong revenge killer. Entei consistently pulls his weight and will always find a way to be useful in a match and thanks to wish support from Gallade he won't be worrying about Flare Blitz recoil too much either. Item Choice Band Ability Blaze Moves Flare Blitz Extreme Speed Stone Edge Sleep Talk Member 5. Gallade (Careful 2244 SpDef 16 Spe 248 Hp) I love this thing. I can surprise so many people that thing they can bring in something like banded Spiritomb to wall me or some other physical attacker that gets shut down by a Will-O-Wisp. It allows Gallade to wish stall as well as function as a great mixed wall that can take some of the most powerful special attacks that RU has to offer and proceed to stall them out. Oh yeah and Entei+wish support= OP Item Leftovers Ability Steadfast Moves Wish Protect Will-O-Wisp Drain Punch Member 6. Rotom(Standard form) Timid (Timid 252 Spe 252 Spa 4 Hp) This guy is so much fun. I set up a subs and pain split at low health to take things into KO range. It is something I wanted to use and does not disappoint when played correctly. Its also a champ at stopping sandslash from spinning and taking it out after. Item Life Orb Ability Levitate Moves Thunderbolt Shadow Ball Substitute Pain Split Notable Old Members Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Lilligant (Modest 252 Spa 252 Spe 4 Hp) I love this thing. I sleep powder, quiver dance as many times as I can, and can even take I status move while I set up. It is fun to sweep with and forces a lot of forfeits. As much as I miss having a second setup sweeper this thing just compounded my team's generaly frailness and needed to go. Lilligant is a very powerful sweeper and in the future I will build a team around it but in the long run wish Gallade was much better here due to the special bulk. Item Lum Berry Ability Own Tempo Moves Petal Dance Sleep Powder Hidden Power Rock Quiver Dance Emboar (Jolly 252 Atk 252 Spe 4 Spd) This guy is here because my team was in need of a strong scarfer. Honestly if there is anyone on the team I am questioning right now it is this guy. I mean he is good for some threats but I’m not crazy about him. Especially being weak to rocks he is underwhelming but hey I may be using him wrong. Item Choice Scarf. Honestly I'm still questioning the replacement of this guy for banded Entei but I dont know. The power boost and extreme speed is nice but I really miss the STAB superpower and Wild Charge to hit Slowking. Hell honestly I would totally say Emboar is a viable Entei replacement with his sub-fighting niche. Ability Blaze Moves Flare Blitz Superpower Wild Charge Sleep Talk Aerodactyl (Jolly 252 Attack, 4 Hp, 252 Spe) This is my Stealth Rocker and he can have offense too. I play pretty suicidally with him and his job is to set up rocks then do some damage. He is frail but taunt is great to abuse to stop set-ups. Edge-Quake is always good to keep around for coverage too. Overall I don't think he is actually as bad as being in RU has made him out to be because he is always great to lead with I got rid of Aero because he was really useless outside of rocks and I finally realized he just wasn't pulling his weight. Steelix has been more reliable for rocks and has great utility offensively and defensively with gyro ball and roar as well as base 200 defense. Item: Focus Sash Ability: Pressure Moves Stealth Rock Taunt Stone Edge Earthquake /hide] So this is the team. Be warned I am pretty new to competitive battling and am open to all suggestions. Use it, change it, help me with it and have fun!
