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. 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. Wall Breaker: @ Life Orb Nature: Mild EVs: 56 Atk / 252 SpA / 200 Spe Moveset: - Draco Meteor - ExtremeSpeed - Fire Blast - Superpower I gotta admit I doubted this set at first and never thought it would work out. But after testing it for a while since B-Zard suggested it, I found it to be VERY effective. It took care of threats I never thought it could. It can also clear out most of the threats to this team, mainly Torterra, (yes, Torterra) Metagross, Bronzong and Skarmory if Tyranitar died too early. Superpower is used over Earthquake because, well, Heatran is nothing to this team, and it's the only reason I'd carry EQ on Dnite. ExtremeSpeed is used to semi-revenge kill Scarfed Flygon (and Jolteon) since I don't wanna take the risk of it outspeeding Jirachi and EQing it. Draco Meteor is the mofo of this set. It hits so heavy it OHKO'd a SubStall Zapdos at -2 SpA with a critical hit, which I find is a bit impressive. Fire Blast takes care of Metagross, Bronzong, even Scizor if it's not set-up or if I bring Dnite to it after a Pokemon dies. A CBScizor can never OHKO Dnite with Bullet Punch even after SR damage (around 65%), so it's not so bad. 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 with iron head. 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. Takes 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, can somehow pull off a sweep late-game, and is able to sweep whole 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 used so I can absorb Rotom and Blissey's Toxic/Thunder Wave/Will-O-Wisp and set up on it then taunt them. The only problem that I have with this set is Scizor's bullet punch, Torterra if anyone even uses it in OU, and Bronzong with Levitate. Which are taken care of by Jirachi. Special/Bulky sweeper: @ Leftovers Ability: Pressure EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP Nature: Timid Moveset: - Surf - Calm Mind - HP Electric - Ice Beam This was originally an edited version of CroCune, but I found that offensive Suicune can come off with a sweep if used correctly. People usually underestimate this little fucker and bring out their Scizor only to be OHKO'd at +2 SpA using Surf (after rock damage), but sadly it's not an OHKO at +1. HP Electric because Gyarados. 'Nuff said. Calm Mind is used to boost it's average SpA to be a really threatening sweeper. It also boosts it's SpD so I don't need to worry about random Pokemon using random super effective special hits. Suicune can also counter Heatran which is always a good thing. The most threatening Pokemon to this team are bulky waters (swampert and vaporeon especially. *shudder*) but those are usually taken care by whatever they Roar to. Scizor can be a little threatening but I can get around it, just gotta watch out for it's U-Turn.
