So i decided to make another OU team after playing UU for a while, and this one is actually the first successful OU balanced team i've ever created (With some help though, thanks to Bismarck.), So i decided to post it here for further improvements. Changes are bolded. Team at a Glance The Lead: @ Focus Sash Ability: Pressure EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 Def Nature: Jolly Moveset: - Rock Slide - Earthquake - Stealth Rock - Taunt Aerodactyl is a natural lead, acceptable attack, very high speed and access to Stealth Rock and Taunt make it superior, Rock Slide gives it a reliable STAB. The only reason I'm using Rock Slide over Stone Edge is that the 30% chance of flinching helped me A LOT. Earthquake is used for more coverage. This lead, however, has some troubles shutting down certain leads, like Bronzong, it always gets me and all i can do is Taunt + SR, but leads such as Azelf are easily taken care of, as they usually predict a Taunt and go for Psychic or Grass Knot first, so i go for Rock Slide to get the 2HKO. Set-up sweeper #1 @ Life Orb Nature: Jolly Moveset: - Dragon Dance - ExtremeSpeed - Outrage - Earthquake Pretty self-explanatory. Dragon Dance Dragonite is just pure plain badassery. ExtremeSpeed is used for weakened revenge-killers like Flygon who think they can take me down. Outrage is the strongest attack on this moveset and it's also the strongest STAB on Dragonite, it can take care of weakened Swampert who switch in on an Earthquake or an ExtremeSpeed, it also can deal a nice amount of damage to Scizor (2HKO's) and other Steel types who switch-in. Earthquake OHKO's all versions of Heatran and is used for Dragon + Ground coverage which is resisted by a few. And it also helps me against Tyranitar and take it down before it kills me with Stone Edge. Revenge-killer: @ Choice Scarf Ability: Serene Grace Nature: Jolly EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP Moveset: - Iron Head - Ice Punch - ThunderPunch - Fire Punch My revenge-killer, saved me from many dangerous sweepers before, such as Gyarados who can dig holes in my team after a Dragon Dance, it also revenges Lucario with Fire Punch, Dragonite and Flygon with Ice Punch, and flinch Pokemon to death. ThunderPunch is mainly used over Trick to take care of Gyarados who sets up on my Suicune, Iron Head takes down anything, even those who resist it, Fire Punch can revenge Scizor and opposite Jirachi while also 2HKOing Forretress. Jolly is used to tie with opposite +Spe Scarfed Flygon and outspeed Scarfed Flygon with a neutral speed nature. Special Sweeper: @ Life Orb Ability: Levitate EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP Nature: Timid Moveset: - Substitute - Shadow Ball - Focus Blast - Pain Split The awesome SubSplit Gengar, taking care of Blissey and Snorlax with the combination of Substitute + Pain Split + Focus Blast, it can also 2HKO most Pokemon who don't resist Shadow Ball, and can sweep teams behind a Sub. Substitute can save me from status-inducing Pokemon, mainly Celebi who loves going around teams, causing switches and Thunder Waving the shit outta anything. Pain Split was used to take care of Blissey who usually if not always switches in on Gengar, taking out more than 50% of Blissey's health after a Pain Split. Focus Blast takes care of Heatran who is also a common switch-in, it fails me sometimes though due to it's goddamn 70 accuracy, but it usually works. Set-up sweeper #2 @ Lum Berry Ability: Sandstream EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP Nature: Jolly Moveset: - Taunt - Dragon Dance - Stone Edge - Earthquake Wtf ? Taunt on Tyranitar ? This must be some sort of a gimmick! No, it's not. This Tyranitar can wreck stall teams after taking care of Bronzong and Breloom, it can Taunt Skarmory and setting up on it's weak Brave Bird and Drill Peck, prevents Blissey from statusing my team, and prevents Forretress who thinks it can set-up on me. Tyranitar also makes perfect synergy with Gengar. Gengar can take out what Tyranitar can't, and Tyranitar can take out what Gengar can't. Lum Berry is mainly used to set-up on Blissey and Rotom before Taunting them, giving me an extra Dragon Dance. I can Taunt Rotom after curing the WoW using the Lum Berry and Taunt Blissey after absorbing the Toxic/Thunder Wave. Ass-saver and the guy that makes people ragequit: @ Leftovers Ability: Pressure EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA Nature: Bold Moveset: - Surf - Calm Mind - Rest - Ice Beam You might wonder, why use Ice Beam over Sleep Talk on a CroCune ? I'll answer with Dragonite, Kingdra and Gyarados who otherwise dig wholes in my team after setting up. And also leaving them open to my own Dragonite's ExtremeSpeed. Calm Mind is the secret to winning with this guy: It boosts my SpA and SpD making Suicune incredibly hard to take down. Surf is a strong STAB on Suicune and does a nice amount of damage to Pokemon who don't resist it. Rest is used to recover my HP back and also grab more Calm Minds if possible. The EV spread and nature is to max out my Defense while boosting my SpD with Calm Mind.
