Hi, Ive only been in metagame for about a month, and have learned a significant amount since I started. I have stuck to HGSS OU beacuse I am most comfortable in OU, and I don't like Gen V. Anyway, I have been doing extensive research on here on Smogon and am using my teams on Pokemon Online to test them. I decided on a balanced offense. I have found that I tend to run into some issues(unfortunately this team has less testing on it than previous). Some are play style errors, but some, I'm sure, are in my team. Here it is. Aerodactyl (M) @ Focus Sash Trait: Rock Head EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Rock Slide - Taunt - Stealth Rock - Earthquake My lead. He's a standard Aerodactyl with Stealth Rock. I don't use him a total suicide lead, but usually switch him out to use later. Tyranitar (F) @ Choice Band Trait: Sand Stream EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Crunch - Stone Edge - Pursuit - Aqua Tail The deadly Choice Band Tyranitar! My team uses a TyraniGenZone core, and effectively my whole team is built around him sweeping. Magnezone @ Leftovers Trait: Magnet Pull EVs: 172 HP / 84 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Hidden Power [Grass] - Substitute - Thunder Wave - Thunderbolt Part of my offensive core, he serves to get those darn steel types, and also sets up Substitute on the likes of Suicune. HPG is for Swampert specifically. Gengar (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Focus Blast - Hidden Power [Fire] - Shadow Ball - Thunderbolt The other member of my core, Gengar serves to absorb Ground moves aimed at Magnezone and Tyranitar, and also Fighting moves. with HPF I use him against the speedier Grasses that Dragonite can't get. Dragonite (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Inner Focus EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Lonely Nature (+Atk, -Def) - Fire Blast - ExtremeSpeed - Earthquake - Draco Meteor My wallbreaker. I ran Earthquake over Superpower for the higher Heatran hit and also against Jirachi, both of whom gave me problems. Mamoswine (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Oblivious EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Ice Shard - Earthquake - Stone Edge - Superpower The newest addition to my team. This final slot has passed between 9 or so pokemon and I'm still not sure. I needed him for Flygon is one of m reasons for him. Any comments or suggestions? Better ways to play this team? All criticism that is true is welcome! Thanks in advance!
