So yeah, this is my first ADV team in a tier I'm looking to pick up, chose the theme cause sand is my favorite weather. The goal is to wear down the opponent with Sand+Spikes, remove key threats, and then clean-up with my lead (yes I mean that, no I'm not crazy). Well, here goes (no imgs sry): Tyranitar Ability: Sand Stream Item: Leftovers Moveset: Dragon Dance, Rock Slide, Earthquake, HP Bug EVs: 16 HP, 120 Def, 200 Atk, 172 Spd, Adamant Nature. Standard Dragon Dance Tyranitar, I made it lead because a key thing for this team is having sand up, I switch turn 1. Brick Break over HP Bug cause I put HP Bug on Flygon, and it helps me beat last Pokemon Snorlax. Swampert Ability: Torrent Item: Leftovers Moveset: Ice Beam, Earthquake, Toxic, Roar EVs; 252 HP, 196 Def, 60 SpA, Relaxed Again standard Swampert, spams Toxic, beats dragons and stops CB Metagross. No more info needed. Snorlax Ability: Immunity Item: Leftovers Moveset: Body Slam, Fire Blast, Shadow Ball, Selfdestruct EVs: 124 HP, 68 Atk, 124 Def, 36 SpA, 156 SpD, Brave Originally a Magneton in this slot, till I realised there are other ways to beat Skarm and Forry. Standard Body Slam and Selfdestruct, Fire Blast, as with Flygon wrecks steels, Shadow Ball beats out Gengar. EV spread suggested in the thread below, gives me solid SpD to beat bulky waters (many of whom die to Self-Destruct, or are crippled and finished off by Flygon and Gengar. Flygon Ability: Levitate Item: Leftovers Moveset: Earthquake, Rock Slide, HP Bug, Fire Blast EVs; 252 Atk, 4 SpA, 252 Spe, Naive So yeah, this is a Pokemon I added when I realised I struggled to counter stuff like Celebi and Swampert, so I tailored Flygon to do that: Hammer those two with 4x moves and win. Otherwise it serves as a solid counter to DD T-Tar and a lot of other stuff like Dugtrio. Edit: I changed the EV spread, sacrificing bulk for the ability to outspeed Timid Celebi. Now it's the team's Revenge Killer Skarmory Ability: Sturdy Item: Leftovers Moveset: Spikes, Whirlwind, Toxic, HP Flying EVs: 252 HP, 4 Def, 252 SpD, Careful Spikes setter, Phazer and Taunter, Skarmory performs a lot of support duty. Standard EV spread, with Standard Moveset for its job. Originally toyed with Forretress for spinning but decided on Skarm because half of my team are immune to Spikes. Gengar Ability: Levitate Item: Leftovers Moveset: Taunt, Ice Punch, Will-o-wisp, Giga Drain EVs: 172 HP, 148 SpA, 188 Spe, Timid Gengar helps to clean up the team with BoltBeam combo, cripple Physical Attackers with Will-o-wisp, and can go out with a bang with Explosion. Pretty standard set, (All my EV spreads are off Smogon Articles btw). Edit: I made Gengar my Swampert counter as Giga Drain does a lot less from Flygon, plus it keeps Gengar going in Sandstorm, Giga Drain and Ice Punch have roughly the same coverage as I can Wisp Metagross and Taunt Skarm (Steel's the only type I don't hit neutral on) So yeah this is my first ADV team, been thinking about using stuff like CB Metagross and Jirachi, please reply as to whether it sounds good as well as general comments and stuff. I like the idea of wearing down the opponent before switching gears fun, so that's why I like this team. Thanks for reading.
