    Hello everyone!
    Welcome back to Smogon after about a week of Smogon bein down,I present you an OU team i built quite a while ago.I really enjoyed usin this team in PS,not sure if its excellent but it has won a lot of matches.Hope you guys like it and a always if you have suggestions on how to improve the team post em below.
    So without further ado heres the team for this 2-week cycle

    [​IMG]
    Skarm (Skarmory) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP / 24 Spd / 232 SDef
    Careful Nature
    - Spikes
    - Roost
    - Whirlwind
    - Brave Bird




    Skarm is the lead for the team,I decided to make it specially defensive to take special hits well.Its one of my 2 hazard setters,spikes to set up the hazards on the field,roost to heal damge done to him,whirlwind to shuuffle pokes and makes them take entry hazard damage and brave bird as my main attack so i can avoid bein disrupted by taunt.Sturdy to ensure i can live a hit


    [​IMG]
    Tusk (Donphan) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Def
    Impish Nature
    - Stealth Rock
    - Rapid Spin
    - Ice Shard
    - Earthquake












    Now I need something to go with skarm and i needed a spinner,and I figured Donphan is a great choice to go with skarm.It checks both of skarms weakness,it can set up the rocks and spin.I decided to make this donphan a bulky offensive set with ice shard for revenge killin and priority and earthquake for powerful STAB,you might think the ev spread is rather odd but it works well





    [​IMG]Merlin(Alakazam) @ Focus Sash




    Trait: Magic Guard

    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
    Timid Nature
    - Psyshock
    - Focus Blast
    - Shadow Ball
    - Hidden Power [Fire]

    Now Alakazam has been one of my favorite special sweepers since gen1 with a massive 135 base sp atk and 120 speed to back that up this is a force to be reckoned with.The attacks are Psyshock,not psychic otherwise blissey walls me completely,focus miss blast to hit through steel type baring scizor and jirachi,shadow ball to check ghost types like gengar,chandelure,etc and HP Fire to tear thorugh ferro,forre,scizor or anythin dats quad weak to fire

    Pumper (Conkeldurr) @ Leftovers

    Trait: Guts
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - Bulk Up
    - Drain Punch
    - Ice Punch
    - Mach Punch


    Your gonna be like Conkeldurr is the new Machamp,well no but its better than Machamp but Machamp is good too,I decided to make use of guts and this guy is like my status absorber,I run a bulk up set cuz after 1 bulk up ur probably gonna get swept,drain punch for STAB and hp recovery,ice punch to check dragons or flying pokes overall and mach punch for cheap revenge killing.Watch out for this guy as it can sweep you after a few bulk ups







    [​IMG]Thor (Jolteon) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Volt Absorb
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
    Timid Nature
    - Volt Switch
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Signal Beam



    Now for my 2nd special sweeper and a damn good one.Jolteon is incredibly fast and has solid sp atk,I think its the 2nd fastest electric type the 1st bein electrode which sucks in OU.And I decided to make it a specs jolteon cuz jolteon has pretty good 110 sp atk and it really doesnt need a scarf since its so fast.The set is volt switch for solid damage and retreat,tbolt for massive STAB after specs hp ice to check gliscor and dragons in general and signal beam as a filler move,(Im considerin shadow ball over signal beam,but that decision is up to you guys)

    [​IMG]
    Wrath (Gyarados) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    Adamant Nature
    - Substitute
    - Dragon Dance
    - Waterfall

    - Bounce
    Now Gyarados is a poke that scared the shit out of me when i was 5 and started watchin the pokemon anime,and this thing is badass and awesome in battle.I run a Sub+DD set to protect from status pokes such as jellicent.Sub DD gyarados is really hard to counter as it uses sub to hide from status and DD to get a Choice Band and a Choice Scarf in 1.And 2 very powerful STAB moves waterfall and bounce.This thing hits very hard when set up,and has moxie to increase attack after gyarados kills stuff.This thing is a monster guys,watch out for this guy.
    So thats the team I built for you guys for this 2-week cycle and hope you guys liked it and if you have suggestions on how to improved the team just let me know below.Anyway thats all!See you guys later!
    :D

    I have a suggestion about the Conkeldurr. I can see that its clear purpose was to sweep, and thats a fine idea but i think your Conkeldurr should run a Specially Defensive set like the following:

    Conkeldurr @ Leftovers​
    Careful Nature - Guts​
    EV's: 252 Attack - 252 Special Defense - 4 Hp​
    Bulk Up - Ice Punch - Drain Punch - Mach Punch​
    In my experience this set has worked because max special defense Conkeldurr can actually take unboosted ( or even some boosted ) special attacks such as Scald. By runnning Guts, scald will not only deal a small amount of damage but possibly burn you and thus activate Guts. With this special bulk Conkeldurr could find more opportunities to set up bulk ups on while allowing it to heal HP back with leftovers and with Bulk Up-STAB possibly guts boosted Drain Punches. Although conkeldurr wont have max attack anymore it should be noted that with this set conkeldurr still maintains an attack stat of 379 and an HP stat of 352 which is still fairly high. ​
