Hello everyone and thanks for reading. I have been playing competitive pokemon for i while now and i have been slowly creeping up the tiers. For the past three months i have been playing OU a lot and I like using weather, I have made at least a team for each one. this is my most successful team, I don't have an amazing ladder score (250) but that is because i cannot ladder in till my internet fixes but I have won a lot of games. (i do tend to rage quit over hax). The team This is a somewhat of a standard sand team so it looks like others but I can honestly say i did not steal it. I have Ttar to set up the sand, two walls, jelly and rachi, and my three offensive dogs, stoutland, manectric and lando-t (he is a dog ;_; ). Tyranitar @ Focus Sash Trait: Sand Stream EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spe / 4 Atk Mild Nature - Crunch - Stealth Rock - Ice Beam - Fire Blast This is my favourite ttar set and usually my lead. His job is to get up sand and set up rocks and maybe get a surprise kill. Although I have customised and changed it, overall this set is my favourite as it can roast ferro and freeze lando and glister. I use him over hippo because I like my teams being more offensive so ttar is the obvious choice. Landorus-Therian (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Intimidate EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SAtk Naive Nature - Earthquake - Stone Edge - Hidden Power [Ice] - U-turn Scarf lando-t is great and can catch people of guard, he is this teams scarfer and a lot of people think it will be manectric or ttar. He is also a needed counter to volcarona, who can usually sweep me. I choose hp ice over superpower as I already have superpower on stoutland and it helps against physical walls such as other lando's and gliscor. I do need a scarfer just in case i loose the weather war. Stoutland @ Choice Band Trait: Sand Rush EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef Adamant Nature - Return - Superpower - Wild Charge - Crunch I love this guy on sand teams as he is a tank and can easily sweep late game thanks to his speed and overwhelming power with the choice band. I like crunch over pursuit because it is not STAB and other mons can then set up on him whilst crunch is a good move to lock myself into. I have been experimenting with retaliation and the fangs but his move pool is good enough as it is. Jirachi @ Leftovers Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 Atk Impish Nature - Body Slam - Iron Head - Wish - U-turn My physically defensive wall and my much-loved paraflincher. He is my only steel type and i rely on him to take outrages, which he does well. Body slam is better than t-wave because it can get damage of although the 40% non para chance can get annoying. I have wish for recovery and u-turn because i love volturn and it can get momentum whilst passing wishes. Jellicent @ Leftovers Trait: Water Absorb EVs: 248 HP / 44 Spe / 216 SDef Calm Nature - Recover - Scald - Toxic - Shadow Ball Jelly is my favourite special wall as it supports good bulk and a great supportive move pool. It is also a good check for keldeo and rain teams. I have tried taunt but i do prefer my other moves especially as I trie to use it on faster set up sweepers which can get up a nasty plot or dragon dance before I can taunt. It also can check non giga drain volcarona or it can live a hit and toxic it. Manectric @ Expert Belt Trait: Lightningrod EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef Timid Nature - Thunderbolt - Volt Switch - Hidden Power [Ice] - Overheat/Flamethrower Manectric isn't seen too often in OU due to it being partially outclassed by jolteon and raikou, but he has one thing they don't; strong fire coverage. This is very helpful because ferro is a problem for my team and not too many people know manectric's move pool. I use e belt because i don't want three choiced mons and he can kind of bluff one. He is my offensive check to rain teams. Im not sure whether to run overheat or flame-thrower because he needs the strength but then not to be setup fodder despite having volt switch. Thank you for looking at my team and thanks for rating! Threat list Hp-dark keldeo-If rain is up he could potentially sweep me. Gastrodon-Very hard to take down without grass attacks Dragonite-Not as much of a threat but can be annoying Volcarona-Same as dragonite. Chlorophyl sun teams-Need to win weather war.
