Made by Phantòm(Maddaffacca) Hi Smogon! I'm new on this community,I'm an italian battler that has been playing for 1 year. This is my first RMT! I want to show you this team because I had some awesome results on Showdown,peaking 3rd place with it in only one day. It is a Balanced Sand team... Take a look at the team: In depth look: Tyranitar (F) @ Chople Berry Trait: Sand Stream EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef Careful Nature - Stealth Rock - Pursuit - Crunch - Stone Edge The lead of the team. When there was Genesect, this set of ttar was not very useful because in the first turn ttar was placing the stealth rock (maybe) and in the second turn he was already dead. Now that Genesect is Uber,I can use this Ttar set with confidence. Stealth Rock, obviously, because they are necessary for any team, Pursuit to trap Latios / Latias that, without ttar, massacres this team. Crunch for more power, also allows me to take advantage of the berry against an opponent's hypothetical Reuniclus for example. Then Stone Edge, preferred to ice beam and fire blast for the simple reason that it is a good stab and also does the same job as ice beam, It doesn't allow the setup of the dragons and helps me against Volcarona and other stuff. Rotom-W @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 248 HP / 56 SAtk / 200 SDef / 4 Spd Calm Nature - Hydro Pump - Volt Switch - Pain Split - Will-O-Wisp Do you know him? With BW2 I think so, yes. I'm talking about SdefRotom-w. Very easy to use, especially in this team since he acts as a barrier against tornadus or Heatran (not only them of course). Hydro Pump is an obvious move for Rotom-W, which is a powerful stab which transforms this small pokemon with little special atk (in this case) in a good killer for some pokemon as Hippowdown, Landorus and so on. I use Volt Switch mainly as a combo to let Terrakion in and spam the hell, also allows me to scout the opposing team, it makes me rest a bit from the predicts that this team needs to perform. Pain Split for more bulkyness being a fundamental piece to eliminate tornadus and finally Will-O-Wisp, I preferred it to thunder wave for the simple reason that one SD Scizor can destroy the whole team. I do not think there's much to say other than this! Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb Trait: Poison Heal EVs: 244 HP / 116 Def / 148 Spd Impish Nature - Fling - Protect - Acrobatics - Earthquake He is the jewel of the team. It is usually the one that needs the most use of predict in this team. This extravagant set allows me to do crazy things like the baitkilling of Breloom in only one turn: who would expect Acrobatics on a Gliscor with toxic orb as item? No one, in fact the 100% of Breloom found, took it in the ass by this Gliscor (protect to enforce the toxic orb at the start of the game and then acrobatics). I don't need acrobatics just for Breloom of course, but also to deal with most of the other Fighting and Grass types that I use to take care with Gliscor. Fling works in conjunction with acrobatics, letting me poisoning the opponent and firing off full power acrobatics .. Earthquake is the obvious stab and to help the recovery of Gliscor's life I use Protect, necessary for taking care of Terrakion and other powerful sweeper! The evs in speed,are 148 for outspeedding jolly breloom. Thx to Luck>Skill for the set (<3) Jirachi @ Choice Scarf Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature - Iron Head - U-turn - Trick / Ice Punch - Fire Punch ScarfRachi is essential in this team, it finish the game,increases the overall speed of the team and allows me to have a better control over tornadus. Iron head is the common stab, U-turn for scout, escape from Magnezone and allow a safe entry for Terrakion (as said also for Rotom), Fire Punch for the annoying Nattorei and Scizor and finally trick, to be more prepared against the stall. It's a good move, I have always believed that ice punch should be fixed in Jirachi's scarf set, but also trick is not bad (at least in this team). It's a pleasure to use this set, it is also efficient, fast and functional on all occasions, despite Skarmory, Forretress, Heatran, Bronzong, etc. .. Stop him. Ice punch is a good variant suggested by Alexander that helps me against Dragon Dancer Dragon! Latios (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Draco Meteor - Psyshock - Recover - Hidden Power [Fire] I had doubts about him but he let me won a lot of battles with this set.At the beginning of this team I've used it so far-fetched: in sandstorm without any recovery moves. Then I realized that with a similar set, surf was useless because it allowed me to hit only Ttar with a 3hko not even 2hko .Ttar wasn't a trouble for this team,so I replaced Surf with Recover. Draco Meteor is destructive, I use it on everything, even on an hypothetical scarfrachi entering (takes about 50% percent of damage). Psyshock another stab useful, it allows me to hit hard an infinite number of pokemon, just a few: Keldeo, Tentacruel, etc ... Hidden Power Fire could not miss in this set, being Orber,Latios has not fear of his "lock" on Draco Meteor like when he holds a choice item, that's why I thought transforming him in an expert belter Latios but I don't know about this change. Recover helps me often against a lot of stuff, even when I have a little momentum I can always use recover. Terrakion @ Choice Band Trait: Justified EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature - Close Combat - Stone Edge - Earthquake - Quick Attack Terrakion Band is my favourite Pokemon! It's crazy, it can also eliminate his arch-counter with a couple of Close Combat / Stone Edge (Like Skarmory,Jellicent,Latias,etc..). He needs only few momentum for take,in the most cases, one kill for turn. I haven't so much to say about this beast,he is my Fighting sweeper(the fight sweeper for me is important in every team lol) and I love it. The most trouble of this team,for what I could see,are Ferrothorn under rain and Gastrodon. Once my terrakion is Ko I have seriously problem to kill them. Thx for reading this RMT I don't know the button for making spoilers so,I can't put the export of the team! Plese tell me how to do!
