Well this is my first ever RMT so bare with me. I've been playing with this team for quite a while now and had some success on wifi, beating several good battlers and a few Serebii admins aswell! I built this team based around a 'mon who I think (and I'm sure many would agree) is ridiculously powerful on wifi due to the lack of the rotom formes. I'm talking of course about... Gyarados! So without further ado here is my team: Rise, Red Dragon! At a glance: Lead: Gliscor @ Leftovers Jolly Sand Veil 252Hp 216 Speed 40 Def U-turn Earthquake Roost Stealth Rock Gliscor is a great lead to say the least. I nearly always get stealth rock up and the only leads against which I don’t are Aerodactyl and some other poke’s with taunt like Infernape, and opposing max speed Gliscor’s, the first two I KO with stone edge and earthquake respectively, whereas with Gliscor I switch to Starmie as they taunt and ice beam for the KO. I also often try to keep Gliscor healthy for the late game, as he has great synergy with my late-game sweepers; Metagross and Gyarados. The ev’s are so that I always 2HKO lead Metagross, even if they have leftovers (which they never do) and that I can also outspeed some Lucario. I chose hypercutter as his ability because Sand Streamers aren’t really used that much on Wifi because of the risk of ‘acid rain’ and I like using Gliscor offensively. Synergy: Water: Gyarados, Starmie Ice: Starmie, Metagross Starmie @ Life Orb Timid Natural Cure 136 Hp 156 Def 216 Speed Recover Thunderbolt Surf/Hydro Pump Rapid Spin This pokemon is just a great partner with Gliscor, she is effectivelly my sort-of anti-lead. This is because I always send her out against leads Gliscor can’t deal with such as taunt Gliscor, Azelf and sometimes even Aerodactyl and Infernape to kill them with rapid spin (and get rid of the rocks) after Gliscor has left them at 1HP. If all else fails with Metagross and Gyarados, I will use her and Jolteon to finish up the game as they have great synergy. You may note the lack of recover, this is because I have Blissey to pass wishes about and it’s nice to have the extra coverage with ice beam. I am considering changing surf to hydro pump just so that I can kill scizor and tyranitar who try to pursuit me to death (Scizor is OHKO’ed after Stealth Rock and any Tyranitar is 2HKO’ed even without stealth rock). Starmie also helps me get rid of Gyarados’ biggest counters, such as Vaporeon, Suicine, Skarmory and Forretress. Synergy: Electric: Gliscor Grass: Metagross Dark: No one really, this is a bit of a problem but Metagross can take the physical (as nearly all dark attacks are) hit pretty well. Ghost: Blissey Bug: Gyarados, Gliscor Jirachi @ Leftovers Nature: Timid 252 HP / 80 SpA / 176 Spe Moveset: Flash Cannon, Thunderbolt, Calm Mind, Subsitute Was a charge beam jolteon. Not too sure how to use this guy but I'll give him a try! If someone can tell me how to use this guy it would be really helpful! Blissey @ Leftovers Calm Natural Cure 24 Hp 252 Def 232 Sp.Def Wish Protect Seismic Toss Toxic Ok before anyone shouts at me for using Blissey, what is wrong with that! Game Freak gives us an amazing (albeit broken) pokemon and people actually complain??? Ok so enough ranting.This is your standard WishBliss, and she really adds longevity to my team meaning it is that much harder to take town. Seismic toss is there for the consistent 100 damage, pretty simple really. Toxic is great as along with stealth rock means that Gyarados and Metagross have a much easier time when it comes to turning 2HKO’s into OHKO’s.It also means that ghost types (apart from Gengar) who think they can switch in with impunity take some damage at least. Did I mention the ev’s mean even a Choice Specs Timid Lucario’s aura sphere and Choice Specs Timid Gengar’s focus blast will never 2HKO? This pokemon really helps set the stage for my two main sweepers. Synergy: Fighting: Gyarados, Starmie, Gliscor Metagross @ Life Orb Adamant Clear Body 112 Hp 252 Atk 12 Def 132 Speed Agility Meteor Mash Earthquake Thunder Punch Agiligross is an incredible late game sweeper. After just one agility it can outspeed everything without a choice scarf and even some pokes with one. Meteor mash is a great attacking option, making Metagross even more of a threat if it gets an attack boost. The lack of explosion can be annoying against Blissey but Gyarados can often just set up on her. Thunder punch on the other hand is great at taking out Skarmory who otherwise walls this set to no end (as you can see skarmbliss is too much of a problem). Metagross has excellent synergy with Gyarados covering his rock weakness while Gyaradis takes fire and ground type attacks with ease. The ev’s are so that I can outspeed choice scarf timid max speed Heatran after an agility. Synergy: Ground: Gyarados, Gliscor Fire: Starmie, Gyarados Gyarados @ Leftovers Jolly Intimidate 252 Atk 252 Speed 4 Def Dragon Dance Bounce Stone Edge Waterfall And here we have our star player. This pokemon is almost unstoppable on wifi because its No.1 counter is non-existent! After a couple of dragon dances not much can withstand it’s attacks and the Pokémon that can are countered by its team mates. (Skarmory, Forretress, Suicine, Vaporeon by Starmie and Empoleon, Tyranitar, Zapdos and Magnezone by Metagross or Gliscor) I chose bounce over earthquake as it is already on a two of my offensive pokemon (Gliscor and Metagross) and means I can easily OHKO Celebii after a dragon dance. Stone edge is there so that dragons and any flying types that got past Gliscor are easily dealt with. Synergy: Electric: Gliscor Rock: Metagross Well that’s my team. I hope you’ve enjoyed the format and ideas behind this team. I’m a long time lurker but very new to posting so please constructive criticism only. Thank you!
