So, this is my first attempt at any serious NU team and my first RMT. I've played OU decently and peaked around 1900~ with Rain (which isn't all that difficult). Recently, however, I have been playing NU, and find it far more enjoyable. This team thus far is 9-2. SO, anyway, the team. This is my 6 I have selected for various reasons. I don't feel like explaining the entire process of teambuilding, and the only change I've made is that Gurdurr used to be Butterfree. Drug Dispenser/Musharna (F) Leftovers w/ Synchronise Calm Nature, 252 HP, 20 DEF, 236 Sp. DEF+ -Moonlight -Heal Bell -Thunder Wave -Psychic This, Arbok, and Bastiodon were the first three things I was completely certain about using on this team. I figured Bastiodon could set up hazards and work the physical side of defending while Musharna could function as a Heal Bell pseudo-cleric and generally be annoying to take down with Special attacks. The EVs don't really have much thought into them, they just sort of... are. They seemed good to me when I was typing them down. Jacobson/Arbok (M) Black Sludge w/ Intimidate Jolly Nature, 4 HP, 252 ATK, 252 SPE+ -Coil -Gunk Shot -Earthquake -Sucker Punch While not necessarily the most reliable sweeper, it's good fun to use and not as difficult to set up as some might think. Poison STAB is surprisingly good at hitting lots of stuff for neutral damage, and does amazing damage with the power boost of a couple of Coils behind it. The main downside, of course, is Gunk Shot's pathetic accuracy without boosts, making Arbok very reliant on finding ways to set up. If he manages to get set up, though, he's pretty hard to stop. Bastard/Bastiodon (M) Leftovers w/ Sturdy Impish Nature, 252 HP, 252 DEF+, 4 Sp. DEF -Protect -Stealth Rock -Roar -Toxic Yeah, complete taunt bait. However, he's weak to fighting moves, which Arbok can resist and and at the same time has Intimidate, making Bastiodon a somewhat indecent lure. Plus, Roar is always helpful against pesky setup sweepers that just love to ruin your day. I'm looking at you, Gorebyss. His physical defense is positively massive with a beneficial nature and is generally very solid at picking up Musharna's defensive slack. Roaring things for 12 turns straight while your opponent struggles to hurt you is a fun little parlor trick, too. Hurrdurr/Gurdurr (M) @Eviolite w/ Iron Fist Adamant Nature, 252 HP, 252 ATK+, 4 Sp. DEF -Bulk Up -Drain Punch -Mach Punch -Ice Punch Lemme tell you something. You only get swept by Liepard with Assist/Whirlwind once before you do something to prevent it from happening ever again. Well, meet preventative action. Gurdurr takes the place of Butterfree, which could find opportunities to set up decently well since opponents tend to underestimate it, but Gurdurr wound up being a much better ally than Butterfree could dream of being. With great bulk thanks to Eviolite, and the only priority Fighting move in the tier, Gurdurr is irreplaceable. The Fox/Glaceon (M) Leftovers w/ Ice Body Bold Nature, 252 HP, 252 DEF+, 4 Sp. ATK -Ice Beam -Shadow Ball -Wish -Protect More or less a joke at first, Glaceon turned out to be an indispensable help during many battles with Braviarys expecting easy KO's or even setup opportunities. Last I saw, Banded Superpower from the American eagle dealt about 95% with Superpower, which is a lot, but without rocks, it's survivable. Braviary doesn't exactly appreciate Ice Beams. The number of people who laugh at Ice types is too damn high, and Glaceon is on track to clearing their name. Also, he's here over Walrein chiefly because of Wish, which I feel like I need. Buzz Aldrin/Ampharos (M) @Choice Scarf w/ Static Timid Nature, 4 HP, 252 Sp. ATK, 252 SPE+ -HP Grass -Focus Blast -Thunderbolt -Volt Switch I just wanted to try this. It's probably inferior to Electabuzz, but I don't exactly care. He has more power if memory serves, and that's enough for me. His main purpose is to patch up the gaping hole I have offensively with no strong and/or fast special attackers. Ampharos serves as both, and giving him a Scarf is a good surprise. So, this isn't super-detailed... I'm looking for critique, mainly. Again, this is my first real attempt at competitive NU and my first RMT. Thanks.
