Politoed (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Drizzle EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Encore - Surf - Hidden Power [Electric] - Ice Beam Politoed's job is to set up the rain obviously. It also does a good job at revenge killing the likes of Dragonite at +1 (in case Skarmory is dead) or locking set up pokemon into Calm Mind or another set up move. Hidden Power [Electric] is for Gyarados who can be annoying to this team. I chose Surf over Hydro Pump since I like accuracy better than the extra power. Surf is strong enough to revenge kill Terrakion if choice band. I am considering Perish Song over Encore since Jirachi with Psyshock 6-0's this team Skarmory (M) @ Shed Shell Trait: Sturdy EVs: 252 HP / 244 Def / 12 Spd Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk) - Spikes - Brave Bird - Roost - Whirlwind Skarmory is the obvious physical wall. It takes on the likes of Dragonite and Haxorus. This poke is my main counter against magdrag. It can set up spikes on pokes likes Gliscor and Landorus if they don't use U-turn. I put some extra speed eve's so I outspend opposing Skarmory and Whirlwind them out. I run Shed Shell since if I lose Skarmory against MagDrag I usually lose the game. Chansey (F) @ Eviolite Trait: Natural Cure EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk) - Stealth Rock - Seismic Toss - Toxic - Softboiled Special wall of the team. Chansey usually sponges attacks and then sets up Stealth Rocks or Toxic/Seismic Toss the switch in.Seismic Toss deals reliable damage to non-ghost type pokemon and Toxic+Softboiled make for a nice toxic stalling combo since very few things in the metagame 2hko Chansey. Eviolite lets it reach a massive amount of Special defense while the evs give it some defensive bulk. Combined with 704 hp this thing is a pain to take out. Softboiled is for the obvious reason of recovery. Nothing more to say about Chansey. Tentacruel (M) @ Black Sludge Trait: Rain Dish EVs: 252 HP / 240 Def / 16 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Substitute - Toxic - Scald - Rapid Spin This Tentacruel set is too good. It outspeeds Non-choice scarfed Rotom-w and lets you sub on its volt switch. SubToxic also lets it take on the likes of Jellicent. Substitute works well on Tentacruel since its rain dish heals 12.5% of its hp every turn. With a timid nature and the given evs it can Toxic Gyarados and Dragonite before they can Substitute/Taunt/Set up. Rapid Spin is a must these days with all the entry hazards around. Scald is the attacking move and pairs well with substitute if you can burn Ferrothorn. Sableye (F) @ Leftovers Trait: Prankster EVs: 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 SDef Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk) - Recover - Taunt - Will-O-Wisp - Knock Off Sableye is my spin blocker and Prankset abuser. It can block any rapid spinner and threaten it out apart from Starmie which can OHKO this set with Hydro Pump. It's also a very good. Thanks to Taunt Sableye can beat opposing Chansey who can be troublesome sometimes. Will-O-Wisp can cripple physical attackers like Terrakion and Landorus. Knock Off is great against Choice and Eviolite users. Practically good against any item holding poke. Recover is for recovery purposes. Latias (F) @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 HP / 180 Def / 4 SAtk / 72 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Dragon Pulse - Calm Mind - Roost - Substitute Latias is definitely the MVP of this team. It sets up on so many things like Calm Mind Jirachi lacking Psyshock, Rotom-w and on Ice Beam users like Politoed or Gastrodon. I have to be careful with Politoed and Gastrodon not to get predicted and toxic'd. This thing can get to +6 really easy and it wins me most of my matches. The defensive evs are to take hits from Terrakion and priority moves better.
