Hello! Thank you for looking over my team. I based the team around Gengar; one of my favorite pokemon that can actually stand its ground in the OU envoirnment. ]Let me start off saying that this team needs a large amount of improvement. I lack a few of the most prominent attacking types in the metagame (Ground, rock, ice, fighting) and am hoping I can maneuver them into my team without making too many dramatic changes. My Lead: Roserade @ Focus Sash Timid Natural Cure 4 HP/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe - Leaf Storm - Toxic Spikes - Sleep Powder - Hidden Power [Ice] Roserade has gone down in notoriety since the introduction of Generation 5. However, I still feel like she poses as a viable and useful threat. She almost always gets off a Sleep Powder or layer of Toxic Spikes, and if the enemy has a lead of Dragonite, Aerodactyl, Politoed, or other slower pokemon, I take care of them with a STAB Leaf Storm or super effective Hidden Power Ice. Dragonite is a 2HKO with Hidden Power Ice due to multiscale, but they don't really pose as a problem until later on in the battle. My Stealth Rocker: Heatran @ Leftovers Calm Flash Fire 252 HP/ 4 Def/ 252 SpD - Stealth Rock - Lava Plume - Roar - Protect After using this guy, it seems he's not all that he is cracked up to be. However, he still does his job better than any other pokemon I have used as this role. I usually switch him out onto a fire-type move to get the flash fire bonus, then stealth rock if I predict a switch. Skarmory and Scizor are easily taken care of with Lava Plume (if Scizor doesn't get a lucky Superpower first) and I Roar away slower pokemon to accumulate Stealth Rock damage and poisoning the replacement with Toxic Spikes. My Physical Wall: Slowbro @ Leftovers Bold Regenerator 252 P/ 252 Def/ 4 SpD - Scald - Psychic - Ice Beam - Slack Off This guy has the only Psychic-type move on the entire team. Scald Provides a great STAB move as well as a crippler, because when it burns the opponent, his defensive prowess increases even more. Slack Off is a great move, because it allows me to toxic/burn stall and keep him alive as long as possible. He provides good resistances that the rest of my team lacks, but he is a pretty slow bro, and would like to see someone pull his job off a little better while still benefiting to the team. My Revenge Killer: Scizor @ Choice Band Adamant Technician 248 HP/ 252 Atk/ 8 Spe - Bullet Punch - Pursuit - U-Turn - Superpower What team lacks this powerhouse anymore? He is extremely powerful; he can revenge kill nearly any pokemon that does not resist his attacks. If I predict a switch, I U-Turn or Pursuit. Bullet Punch finishes off whatever my other pokemon could take out. Superpower OHKO's Tyranitar and steel types. A pretty straightforward and standard set. My Special Sweeper: Latios @ Expert Belt Timid Levitate 4 HP/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe - Surf - Draco Meteor - Recover - Hidden Power [Fire] Latios is amazing. He can destroy virtually every other dragon in the metagame. Recover is his main recovery move. Hidden Power Fire deals with steels like Skarmory and Ferrothorn that wall my other pokemon, and Surf gets rid of ground-, rock- and fire-types like Heatran, Terrakion, Tyranitar, and Gliscor. My Favorite: Gengar @ Leftovers Timid Levitate 4 HP/ 252 SpA/ 252 Spe - Disable - Substitute - Shadow Ball - Focus Blast This guy has one battles 1 vs. 6 for me before. He is just devastating in certain situations. I start off by switching in on something he resists or can take out easily, and then Substitute on the switch. Then I proceed with attacking. I use Disable after my sub is broken or when my opponent uses a move I don't want them to have access to. This allows me to set up another sub and to proceed on attacking them until their pokemon faints or they break my sub again. I have problems with several pokemon such as Blissey, Rotom-W, and various water types if Roserade is out of the picture. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
