    Hai and welcome to a new VGC 2014 RMT. I found a new core on Eggy Emporium and wanted to try it out. Also a trend involving 2 Mega Pokemon in one team was rising. So I looked at some strategies and went for a Triple Mega idea. Titans Unite!

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    First of all this team starts with my little froggy friend:

    [​IMG]

    Politoed @ Sitrus Berry
    Ability: Drizzle
    EVs: 252 HP / 76 Def /156 SAtk / 4 SDef / 20 Spe
    Modest Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk
    - Scald
    - Ice Beam
    - Rain Dance
    - Protect


    Scald gives this froggy a STAB move a 30% chance to Burn physical attackers although I have 1 Intimidater on my team (2 if Manectric Megavolves). Ice Beam for 4x weak Dragons and Double Dragon Leads. Rain Dance to Reset weather without having to switch out. Protect to dodge an incoming attack.
    EVs allow me to live a 252+ Return from Mega Kangaskhan. These EVs also allow me to live a 252 Solarbeam from Charizard Y. Ice Beam now OHKOes 4/4 Garchomp. Thanks to Enosh for this spread.

    Kingdra @ Lum Berry
    Ability: Swift Swim
    EVs: 164 Spd / 252 SAtk / 92 HP
    Timid Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk
    - Draco Meteor
    - Muddy Water
    - Substitute
    - Protect


    This little seahorse has some power in rain. Draco Meteor and Muddy Water as STAB moves. I ran Substitute for the Status block. Protect to dodge Super Effective hits. Thanks to Flafpert for this EV spread. 164+ allows me to outspeed 252 Modest Kingdras by one point. This also allows me to OHKO a Double Dragon lead together with Politoed.

    [​IMG] -> [​IMG]
    Manectric @ Manectite
    Ability: Lightningrod -> Intimidate
    EVs: 20 HP / 236 Spd / 252 SAtk
    Timid Nature
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Snarl
    - Protect


    This fellow is my second Intimidater when he megavolves. Thunderbolt as his main STAB an Hidden Power [Ice] for a BoltBeam combo. Snarl to lower my opponents Special Attack before he strikes me. Protect for Protecting me. EVS allow me to outspeed Garchomp in normal forme and maxed out SAtk for some raw power. In megaforme I have a 50% chance to OHKO 4 HP Charizard Y.

    [​IMG]

    Talonflame @ Shell Bell
    Ability: Gale Wings
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature
    - Brave Bird
    - Flare Blitz
    - Quick Guard
    - Protect


    This little bird was here for some Quick Guard support and taking down Amoonguss and Venusaur. Quick Guard took down Prankster Pokemon and other priority moves like Aqua Jet and Gale Wings Brave Bird aimed at Venusaur. Brave Bird and Flare Blitz as STABs. Shell Bell recovers whenever I use a recoil move.

    [​IMG] -> [​IMG]

    Venusaur @ Venusaurite
    Ability: Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 Spd
    Modest Nature
    - Leaf Storm
    - Sludge Bomb
    - Hidden Power [Ground]
    - Protect


    I wanted a Venusaur that could either work in Sun and Rain. So I maxed out HP and SAtk. Leaf Storm and Sludge Bomb as STAB. In the last slot I wanted something to hit Steel types but not getting nerved by the rain so I went with Hidden Power [Ground]. 252+ Leaf Storm allows me to OHKO 252/116+ Rotom W in normal form.

    [​IMG] -> [​IMG]

    Mawile @ Mawilite
    Ability: Intimidate
    EVs: 252 HP / 52 Atk / 4 Def / 20 Spd / 180 SDef
    Careful Nature
    - Iron Head
    - Play Rough
    - Sucker Punch
    - Protect


    Again Ray Rizzo's spread from Virginia Regionals. Even though I have rain I wanted to use her outside of the rain so I wasn't bothered to change it. I had her in the back when I saw Gardevoir in the teampreview. 252/180 + Lives Salamence his Fire Blast. 4 Def takes -1 Garchomp his Earthquake pretty well. 20 Speed to speedtie with other Mawile. Iron Head and Play Rough as STAB and Sucker Punch as priority.

    Well this is my Titan team and hope you liked it!

    You already have a pretty good chance of having rain up, as well as rain gaining in popularity in vgc, so why not run thunder on mega man, guaranteeing the OHKO on zard. Also, your team looks pretty rough against steel in general. Maybe switch snarl for flamethrower or even overheat, it could also help against opposing venasaur, especially if you happen to not bring talonflame.

    Talon is usually in the back and still Venusaur can still do a lot to Steeltypes.
    Someone in the VGC room on main gave me some ideas and I changed the Politoed Spread
