    Introduction
    Hello Smogonites and welcome to my first RMT. Usually I battle UU and Ubers on Pokemon Showdown but, I decided I would try out OU. To tell you the truth I spent little time creating this team tweaked several times until I felt satisfied. I didn't expect it to peak 1927 but it did. (On an Alt known as Shiny Magikarp 2. Got to 1927 in one day.) That is history behind SmashPass Gyarados. (Best Name I could come up with.)

    The Team
    [​IMG]
    Alakazam (M) @ Focus Sash
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
    Timid Nature
    - Psyshock
    - Shadow Ball
    - Focus Blast
    - Energy Ball
    Alakazam is the least common SmashPass receiver. Usually he doesn't see the light of battle. However when he does, Kazam saves me from Set Up sweepers that would otherwise proceed to kill everything.

    Gyarados (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
    Adamant Nature
    - Dragon Dance
    - Earthquake
    - Waterfall
    - Stone Edge
    Gyarados is the main SmashPass receiver. Moxie basically seals the opposing team's fate. Rarely will he will use Dragon Dance. With rain being quite prominent, spamming Waterfall is not a problem as an switch in is most likely be KOed.

    Landorus-Therian (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Intimidate
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
    Adamant Nature
    - Stone Edge
    - Superpower
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Polish
    Landorus is one of the the SmashPass receivers. It will hit Pokemon for SE damage 9001% of the time. He is an ideal receiver because Electric attacks will often by aimed at Gorebyss and Gorebyss will Baton Pass to Landorus. If Gorebyss gets killed, Landorus will use Rock Polish. I picked him because he is a good answer to Sand Teams.

    Heatran (M) @ Air Balloon
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Modest Nature
    - Stealth Rock
    - Fire Blast
    - Earth Power
    - Dragon Pulse
    Heatran is my suicide lead. Sets up Stealth Rock and figures out what do next. Usually I will let him die even if he has enough HP to not be considered dead weight. Occasionally I switch him out if he has a purpose but he will never be a SmashPass receiver.

    Jolteon (M) @ Expert Belt
    Trait: Volt Absorb
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
    Timid Nature
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Shadow Ball
    - Volt Switch
    Jolteon is by far the most worthless Team member. Basically just use Volt Switch and occasionally sweep things. Jolteon will never be SmashPass receiver.

    Gorebyss (M) @ White Herb
    Trait: Swift Swim
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Calm Nature
    - Shell Smash
    - Baton Pass
    - Hydro Pump
    - Ice Beam
    Gorebyss is team's most vauable member. More often than not he will be sent out after Heatran has set up Stealth Rock. Gorebyss will rarely sweep himself though Politoed's prominenece will make it hard not to spam Hydro Pump occasionally. (And get a Swift Swim boost.)
