Improving upon my previous team, Team Freezernova, I have now decided to make some changes in members and EV distribution. This team relies on much of the same sun-based tactics of it's predecessor, except with more emphasis on entry hazards, which my team(s) previously struggled with. Overall, I believe I have created my best sun team as of yet! (Changes are in bold.) Weather Inducer/Entry Hazard Lead Groudon: Impish @ Leftovers 252 HP | 252 Def | 4 spD Earthquake | Stealth Rock | Fire Punch | Roar Groudon is a returning pokemon from my previous team with different EV placement and the addition of Roar for Dragon Tail and T-Wave switched for Fire Punch. Earthquake is so I don't get screwed by Taunt. Earthquake is enough to 2HKO standard Darkrai. I was thinking about going Lum but I weighed the benefits of HP restoration vs first turn status and I ended up going with the HP. Stealth rock makes Reshiram's enemies ripe for the picking. The prehistoric monter also helps take care of Zekrom and rock types that threaten Reshiram. The Main Sweeper Reshiram: Modest @ Choice Specs 4 HP | 252 SpA | 252 Spe Blue Flare | Draco Meteor | Dragon Pulse | Focus Blast The core and the very reason I made this team. I switched my Life Orb with a Choice Specs from last team for more power. Personally, I continue to believe that with sun support, this is the best sweeper in Ubers right now. With proper EVs, it ties a large group of users in speed except for a select few, and it's dual stabs get neutral coverage on every pokemon in the game. Dragon Pulse serves as a consistent and powerful STAB while Draco Meteor is a hit and run coverage bomb. The sun that backs up it’s already decimating Blue Flare is unbelievable. 2HKO'ing Eviolite Chansey (+ stealth rock)... *sniff-sniff*... just so beautiful. The Kyogre Counter Latias: Timid @ Soul Dew EVs: 112 HP | 204 SpA | 192 Spe Calm Mind | Dragon Pulse | Tailwind | Roost The Latis have once again been shoved away from OU completely and right back into the treacherous Uber tier. However, this decision was well made, and for one reason. Soul Dew. Yes, this infamous item provides Latios and Latias with a free Calm Mind, which boosts their already staggering Special stats. The moves are standard: Bulk and power booster, STAB, Reshiram setter-upper, and recovery move respectively. EV's provide bulk and speed, along with a strong sweeping potential (Kind of). The Spinblocker/Tank Giratina-Origin: Impish @ Griseous Orb 184 Atk | 252 Def | 72 Spe Stone Edge | Shadow Sneak | Dragon Tail | Will-O-Wisp Giratina-O is one awesome son of a bitch. Not only is he an amazing spinblocker, but also his STABs give him great coverage in the uber tier. While I cannot place an item on this antimatter dragon, he/she still plays a crucial role on the team and prevents the likes of Blazeiken or Extremekiller Arceus from steamrolling the damn team. Moves are standard in order to burn physical attackers like Zekrom and phaze or use one of it's STABs. EV's are for offensive potential as well as quickness and bulk. The Wall/Dragon Counter Arceus-Steel: Timid @ Iron Plate 248 HP | 8 SAtk | 252 Spd Calm Mind | Judgment | Will-O-Wisp | Recover This guy has been recommended many a time in the past and after using a little bit, I'm beginning to see why. In the past, my teams have struggled against strong and fast dragon types, namely Palkia or Kyurem-W. Well no more! Arceus even has the ability to boost both its defensive and offensive prowess through Calm Mind. And although steel type STAB apparently isn't very "practical," or "good," or "sane," I believe it to be pretty damn useful. Last two moves a routine status and recovery (no pun intended) respectively. EV's make for a quick bulky Arceus with just a dash of ASS-KICKING special attack. (Okay, maybe not SO ass kicking...) The Late Game Sweeper Mewtwo: Timid @ Life Orb 4 HP | 252 SpA | 252 Spe Calm Mind | Psystrike | Aura Sphere | Ice Beam Mewtwo is that pokemon I saw growing up and said "Wow! Someday I want to be like... um... that thing!" Yup, I wanted to be a psychic megalomaniac that could control planetary patterns and climate. And to have a pink tail. But in all seriousness, this guy is AMAZING. He will pick off pokemon late game like a pro. In intimidation factor alone its level of scariness is right up there with Arceus or Kyogre. Or Drifblim. Yes, Drifblim. It kidnaps children. From their fucking parents. And Rayquaza can watch the Ice Beam flying towards his face after a Calm Mind. Kyurem-W can just sit there as Mewtwo sends an Aura Sphere right into its mutated torso. Mewtwo sends the pink blob that is Blissey to PokeHell with its wallbreaking Psystrike. Calm Mind is pretty self explanatory. Timid is to outspeed common threats like Darkrai and the Latis. Life Orb is obviously for that extra oomph. EV's are classic PsychoKiller Mewtwo. Well, I hoped you liked the team! Rate, hate, steal, and luvdisc if you liked! *Possible changes that I am definitely thinking about: Latias switched for Scarf Palkia, Giratina-O switched for Great Wall Lugia or Offensively inclined special wall sun abusing Ho-oh, SteelCeus switched for GhostCeus, possibly switching Choice Specs Reshiram to a Life Orb Tailwind/Roost set, or even possibly adding Specs Kyurem-W in place of Mewtwo. Most of these ideas are attempting to achieve a more offensive feel to the team as right now it seems to be almost stall/defensive in nature. Your input is appreciated very much!
