I assembled this team for leisure competitive play during the 4th generation, beginning of the 5th generation. I would love some comments, I'm new posting to the forums :) My Team Vaporeon with Leftovers: Nature:Hardy Ability: Water Absorb EVs: 252 HP : 176 DEF : 80 SPE -Wish -Protect -Boil Over -Hidden Power Ice The wish supporter for my team. His ability Water Absorb is there to balance out my teams weakness to water, since I run a Sand team. Protect + Wish is quite the successful set up, with Hidden Power Electric to take out the numerous amounts of water he will be switching into on. Hippowdon with Leftovers: Nature:Impish Ability: Sand Stream EVs: 252 HP : 252 DEF : 4 SPD -Earthquake -Slack off -stealth rock -Roar My starting lead for most situations. Sets up sandstorm, which is a hindrance to most teams out there today. Stealth rock set up as well, for damaging most Pokemon, and capable of racking up lots of residual damage thanks to hippowdon's abuse of roar. Earthquake for Stab damage, and so that he can't be taunted into an epic failure. Shibirudon with Leftovers Nature:Careful Ability: Levitate EVs: 252 HP : 4 ATK : 252 SPD -Snake Coil -Wild Bolt -Substitute -Dragon Tail My second wall of the team. With only one weakness to ground...wait, his levitate ability takes care of that :p Toss down substitute and snake coil to boost attack and accuracy. Sweep with Wild Bolt and dragon tail as a successful back up. It doesn't get simpler than that. Scizor with Choice Scarf Nature:Jolly Ability: Technician EVs: 4 HP : 252 ATK : 252 SPD -Pursuit -Bullet Punch -U-Turn -Superpower My mid-game scout, attack sweeper. With choice scarf on hand, scizor will be granted a much needed speed boost, giving the advantage to unleash a successful attack onto a Pokemon not prepared to be out sped. Pursuit for Pokemon that switch out, u-turn for sticky situations and superpower is still a maybe at this point until i decide on a better attack. Ononokusu with Leftovers Nature: Jolly Ability: Mold Breaker EVs: 4 HP : 252 ATK : 252 Speed -Dragon Dance -Outrage -Substitute -Earthquake My second Attack sweeper. With a high attack bonus granted from his Ev set-up, Ono has the potential to wreck havoc on any team unprepared for it's onslaught. Set up substitute, set up a couple of successful Dragon Dance's and the unleash a fury of Outrage. Earthquake for a back up in case a Pokemon isn't quite phased by dragon moves. Randorosu with Life Orb Nature:Naive Ability:Sand Power EVs: 252 ATK : 4 SPD : 252 SPE -Earthquake -Stone Edge -Sword Dance -Hidden Power Ice Landlos, a monster of a Pokemon. Benefits from my sand storm team, first off. His ability is beneficial to his stab moves of earthquake and stone edge. Sword dance to set up for a massive attack boost and hidden power ice to take out Gliscor and Hippowdon Threats: Swampert. Ludicolo. Rain Teams. Again, this team is still in the works, but I'll leave the descriptions up this time to keep it from being locked. The descriptions aren't too detailed, but I'll update them as i test with pokemon that they have trouble with, etc. This team and descriptions are still in the works, I have class in 30 minutes...college algebra :/ So, when i get back I'll continue to edit and clean this thread up. Thank you guys for the help!!!!!!!!
