Hi. I'm Yamigo100 presenting my newest OU team that I have created. Fell free to critique and criticize something, or just point out a basic flaw. So here's the rundown Team: Orgin: Befroe, I wanted to create a team that centered around Gyarados who would be a dragon dance sweeper, however, I soon realized that he was holding the team back and I switched from Gyarados to Haxorus, a poke who I thought would be more effective. This too, proved not very effective. The probelm with both teams was that in the fights Gyarados and Haxorus would be the last pokemon left at the mercy of half a team of certain death, and all though I could mow down one or two pokes, this still proved o me that the entire time other than the the first team, would be doing the work. I then realized that the team I made to help support/sweep foir Gyarados was in itself a good balanced team. So since the team worked well on its own, I needed a Pokemon who would assist the team but not be a big time setup poke, or another basic sweeper or tank. I decided to use Accelgor as it was the first thing I picked when I got to the Smogon website, and honestly, I'm happy with him. Now for the Team details... Salty(M)-Timid-252HP/4SpA/252Spd Unburden;Focus Sash Spikes Buzz Buzz Knock Off Yawn So he isn't very offensive but he's one salty moutherfucker. With focus sash, I'm almost guaranteed two layers of Spikes, Unless my opponents lead carries a priority attack. Accelgor is the outspeeds EVERYTHING in the tier, unless of course its scarfed, but he won't live long enough to know who's who. Knock off is to ruin the days of evolite pokemon and and other pokemon that depend on their items such as Porygon-2 (in a recent battle) and other pokemon with leftovers who will be a bane. Yawn is for pokes such as Fortress who I will use it on immediately, set up two layers of spikes and switch into Hetran. He's defiantly proving his worth. Sour(F)-Timid-4Hp/252spA/252Spd Volt Absorb; Choice Specs Thunderbolt Volt Switch Hidden Power Ice Shadow Ball* *If you know another good move, please Suggest. Jolteon has been one of my favorite sweepers ever since I first chose him for a failed Keledo team which I think had a Gyarados at one point. But anyways, Jolteon is an amazing special attacker, maiming everything in sight with a STAB Thunderbolt, proving to be a pain in the ass with Volt Switch, or revenging killing with HP Ice. Shadow ball is there because I like the move and again, if you know a better option, please do tell. Spicy(F)-Calm-252HP/4SpA/252SpD Flash Fire;Leftovers Fire Blast Toxic Will-O-Wisp Earth Power So I think it should be said right now that I fucking love Hetran. A defensive Fire-type whom is a very powerful and bulky offender. As my preferred Special Wall, he resist just about everything that isn't a weakness and does her job well in hindering and taking out weakened Pokemon. Fire Blast is basic STAB option and is always a pleasure to have on a team. With both Toxic AND Will-O-Wisp, I can hinder every pokemon except Hetran itself, whom If I can predict it right, take it out (and other Fire Types) with Earth Power, which is essential to ANY Hetran going Specially Offensive in its methods. Crunchy(M)-Impish-252HP/184Def/72Spd Poison Heal;Toxic Orb Earthquake Ice Fang Stealth Rock Roost God I love Gliscor. For a while, I would use a Gliscor with leftovers, which would get poisoned and get bundles of health. But this happened rarely. So I'm going with a very effective and basic physically defensive set with him. Gliscor being Gliscor can take physical hits of neutral damage for days, fearing no unboosted Outrage or even super effective Ice attacks (physically of course. Specially he's S.O.L) Earthquake, duh! Ice Fang, double duh! Stealth Rock, just for more pain in the assiness, and roost, to fuck with folks :p But seriously, this set is built to survive, and unless you outspeed and overpower, you aren't killing this guy without a special move. Bitter(F)-Timid-4HP/252SpA/252Spd Levitate;Black Sludge Shadow Ball Sludge Bomb Thunderbolt Trick Many of my previous opponents in my time as a Competitive Battler have used a Disable and Trick trollish set. I mean it works well, but doesn't do much if he's only on the field for two turns unless against a Choiced Pokemon. I find an offensive Gengar to be much more rewarding and useful, as it provides me with a balanced offensive option, plus I can hinder any wall I come across. First there is Shadow Ball and Sludge Bomb which are great STAB options, and personally two of my favorite attacks of all time, are complimented well by Thunderbolt which provides excellent coverage over much of the OU baring Magnizone, Hetran, and Lucario which are threats off the top of my head (if lucario is special then he's to be feared.) But Trick is a real fun game to play with folks, as she hinders pokemon like Chansey, Blissy, and other would be checks. Also, against sweepers, she's rarely ever 2HKOED, as she can do it to many pokemon back. Sweety(M)-Timid-4Hp/252SpA/252Spd Levitate;Choice Scarf Draco Meteor Psyshock* Surf Thunderbolt *Again, if you know another move, please do tell. The final Member of the team is my choice scarf user of choice (lol see wut i did there?)He's anything but sweet as his main mission is to out speed and wreck havoc, but I fell I'm not using him to his full potential or as good as I should. But that is mostly a matter of skill. Looking at the moveset we have Draco Meteor (basic STAB nothing remarkable,) then there's Psyshock which also works well. Surf and Thunderbolt provide near unresisted coverage and are overall just good moves of their type. So yeah, that's it. Please rate with honesty. Criticism in any form is welcome.
