Sunnyzard Hello everyone. As the title suggests, my team was build in order to play with my favorite Pokemon, Charizard. Thanks to his dream world ability Sun Power and Ninetails' Drought he is able to perform quite well in OU. First I will present each member of the team: Ninetails @ Leftovers Trait: Drought EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp. Atk. / 252 Speed Nature: Timid (+Speed,-Atk) ~ Fire Blast ~ Will-o-whisp ~ Energy Ball ~ Hidden power [Ice] With Drought I assure a nice sunny day during the whole battle. It's main attack is Fire Blast, which deals some STAB damage. After sun is out, he can win easily against the popular Politoad. Will-o-whisp helps against physical threats. Hidden power Ice provides a nice surprise against dragons and Gliscor. After setting up sun he can be switched out and be saved for later battle. Charizard @ Leftovers Trait: Solar Power EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp. Atk. / 252 Speed Nature: Timid (+Speed, -Atk) ~ Fire Blast ~ Focus Blast ~ Solar Beam ~ Air Slash If the oponent doesn't have a fast Pokemon, Charizard can deal out quite some damage, specially with rock support. He's main objective is to sweap, and Leftovers helps him to minimize the damage taken from his ability. Fire Blast gains 3.375 power because of STAB, sun and Solar Power. Venusaur @ Black Sludge Trait: Clorophyll EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp. Atk. / 252 Speed Nature: Modest (+Sp. Atk, - Atk) ~ Sludge Bomb ~ Hidden power [Fire] ~ Giga Drain ~ Growth By chosing the right moment to switch in he can easly gain +2 Sp.Atk. with Growth. With Giga Drain you can risk to use Growth again getting a +4 Sp. Atk and then heal with Giga Drain. Thanks to the sun his speed is doubled, only being stopped by a few threats. I prefer Sludge Bomb over Sleep powder in order to cover more types, since he also gains some nice STAB and Grass/Fire have some difficulties with covering. Espeon @ Light Clay Trait: Magic Bounce EVs: 252 HP / 4 Sp. Atk. / 252 Speed Nature: Timid (+Speed, -Atk) ~ Light Screen ~ Reflect ~ Psychic ~ Hidden Power [Fire] Ninetails usually makes the oponent to use Stealth Rock, which can be back bounced with his ability. After that, Espeon can set up some Reflect and Light Screen, which helps Charizard to enter and Venusaur to set up Growth better. Getting often threated with Scizor, he can fight back with it's natural high Sp. Atk. and sun support thanks to HP Fire. Donphan @ Leftovers Trait: Studry EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk. / 4 Def Nature: Adamant (+Atk, -Sp. Atk) ~ Ice Shard ~ Rapid Spin ~ Earthquake ~ Stealth Rock Charizard's main problem are Rocks. But Donphan can take them without a problem, spinning them away and then setting up rocks himself. Ice Shard can be a good surprise attack to some threats after getting Stealth rock damage, specially Dragonite and Salamance, or even other Donphan. I wasn't sure at all to put more defense in him, since he is the physical wall of my team, but it turned out well until now. Rotom-H @ Choice Scarf Trait: Levitate EVs: 80 Sp. Atk / 176 Sp. Def / 252 Speed Nature: Calm (+Sp. Def, -Atk.) ~ Will-o-whisp ~ Volt Switch ~ Trick ~ Overheat Rotom's job is to wall some special attack threats and then strike back with Overheat or tricking. He can switch in during earthquake and then Volt Switch to another pokemon. His main weapon is Overheat with sun support and STAB. The idea behind this team My goal was to build a team that could make good use of Charizard. Ninetails was without a doubt in it to set up sun. With sun Venusaur was a good choice to put in. The problem was their defense, so that's when Espeon came in. Finally I needed some walls. Donphan and Rotom-H become my physical and special wall. Finally there were some other choices but I refuse to use legendary Pokemon, even if they are in OU. The main power of the team is it's synergy. I started with Donphan and Rotom-H being completely defensive, but Donphan turned out to be a nice physical attacker and Rotom-H could also deal some damage with those EV's. Thanks to Espeon, they don't need much more. Also with a good prediction Espeon's ability can do some damage to the oponent. Venusaur and Charizard are the main strike power, dealing some incredible damage. I would apreciate any suggestion and advice. Thank you.
