Poseidon's Wrath Team OU DPP Ok guys, this is my first thread at RMT, I'm not a pro at Pokemon, but I know the basics at least. (I think) I'm at the battle tutor program, but since it did not started yet, I thought of putting the best team I've made until now for u guys to give me some tips. I always take a look at smogon movesets and strategys, but at most I try to make my own teams and movesets. :) And if somehow I did something wrong in the method of creating the topic, please tell me and I'll try to fix it right away. Well, here goes: LEAD: Roserade (F) @ Focus Sash Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Rain Dance - Sleep Powder - Leaf Storm - Toxic Spikes First I was with Azelf lead, with, if I remember well, Taunt, Explosion, Stealth rock and Rain Dance+Damp Rock, it was working really well, but since I did not had a Pokemon with reliable grass moves, Roserade was my choice. Now, to the moves: For Obvious reasons I choose Sleep Powder on my lead. I can shut down for a while foes that can be a threat to my team, and if I think theres a good opportunity, can even start powdering the enemys lead and get a chance to set up Toxic Spikes. Curiously, when the enemys lead are a threat to my Roserade (examble would be Azelf, Heatran, Jirachi) I almost always put then to sleep. I should stop doing that, but oh well... I tried Rain dance combo with Damp Rock, but it wans't very effective because most of time my Roserade was getting OHKO at the very start. It's really rare when I set up rain with her, so I think I should replace with something else, just can't think of something... Leaf Storm for the likes that get 2x/4x dmg, and Toxic Spikes for the basic stall, I'd rather use Spikes, but anyways... SPECIALLY DEFENSIVE Milotic (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Marvel Scale EVs: 248 HP / 196 Def / 56 SpD / 8 Spe Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk) - Recover - Ice Beam - Hidden Power [Eletric] - Surf With this set I can wall many things (lately some Togekiss and Skarmony), while I kill them with Ice Beam/ HP. Using Recover I have just enough sustain together with this ev spreads. Surf for the most reliable stab. Nothing new here, sadly. SPECIAL SWEEPER (I guess so) Jolteon (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Volt Absorb EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Thunderbolt - Yawn - Substitute - Shadow Ball One of the cores of my team. Well, I call him one of the cores because of the perfect sinergy with my Kingdra, the ev's are placed so I can get a clean kill with DD +1 Gyarados and hit the likes of Dragonite, Salamence, etc. Substitute for times I'm sure they're gonna switch, or right after a Yawn, so I can protect myself if I'm not outspeed by the enemy. Lately it inst working rlly well, must be me with a bad timing. Shadow ball for kill Rotom, and Psychics ones. I'm not really sure about using Shadow Ball so any other suggestion would be welcome. REVENGE KILLER Scizor (M) @ Choice Band Trait: Technician EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - U-Turn - Bullet Punch - Superpower - Pursuit My Scizor is there for the mainstream role of revenge killer. After I open holes in the other team with My Kingdra and Jolteon, my Scizor switch-in and get all the kills he wants (or can...). U-Turn for the stab against Psychics, Grass, etc. I guess all the moves are self explanatory. DEF TANK Gliscor (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Sand Veil EVs: 252 HP / 180 Def / 76 SDef Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Roost - Stealth Rock - Earthquake - Stone Edge I've been switching alot my tank lately, I've been through Snorlax, Flygon, Swampert. But time goes and I came back to Gliscor, he was in my first team but I couldnt use him well, so switched, but now he's back and forth! I use him to tank Heatrans and some pokemons I know my gliscor wont die for the stab. With Roost I can heal and let them die by the poison another teammate of mine gave to the enemy. Earthquake kills Magnezone, Tyranitar and etc. With stone edge I can kill the fucking birds without taking too much dmg (except Articuno). Stealtch rock=mainstream. AND FINALLY, MY MAIN CORE Kingdra (M) @ Lum Berry Trait: Swift Swim EVs: 180 HP / 252 Atk / 76 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Dragon Dance - Rain Dance - Outrage - Waterfall This beauty of the seas are the main core of my team. When I find an opening I switch to him, DD (rain dance sometimes if needded) and rip alot of holes with a powerfull STAB Waterfall and Outrage. I don't try to keep him alive at all costs, maybe thats my mistake, I Outrage till death to take with me as many enemys as possible. That's my first competitive OU team guys. Any help and tip would be appreciated! :D Obs: Sorry for my bad english. Not my native language.
