Hi everybody! I've been playing pokemon since I was a little kid and I keep doing it with the same nice feeling. I started with the videogames and it was so fun, but slowly I was feeling more and more interested in the competitive side of the game. After trying few play styles, I found in the sand my niche due my Tyranitar fixation in this weather-dominated metagame. Here we goes with the RMT! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Tyranitar (M) @ Choice scarf trait: sand stream E.V.'s: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 6 HP Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) -Crunch -Pursuit -Stone Edge -Superpower Here is my weather inducer and a kind of revenge killer/trapper. It works wonders under the sand as it takes little damage from heavy hitters like genesect, heatran, or thundurus-T. And as it goes scarfed it can deal nice OHKOs to things like starmie, latios/as and gengar trapping them, or stone eadging things like weakened dragonites, gyarados, unboosted salamences... It can cover a lot of stuff and does a good work at what it does.~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Heatran (M) @ leftovers trait: flash fire E.V.'s: 248 HP/ 252 SpDef/ 10 Spd Careful Nature (+SpDef, -Atk) -Stealth rock -Substitute -Roar -Lava plume I use Heatran as a check to many poke, and due it's great spDef does it pretty well. As it forces many switches it's very easy lay the rocks or put a substitute and try to burn the counter with lava plume. Really love it and how it works ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Latias (F) @ life orb trait: levitate E.V.'s: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd/6 HP Timid nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Surf - Roost - Psyshock - Draco meteor I've been using her blue counterpart for a long time with the same moveset , but didn't like his live quick, die young phylosophy, so I cut his blue thing and painted red his body (don't ask her for his old life). I like to heavy smash everything that doesn't resist draco meteor. Latias is a great response to those rain and sun teams that try to ruin my fun. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Skarmory (M) @ Rocky helmet trait: Sturdy E.V.'s: 252 HP/ 232 Def/ 24 Spd Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk) -Spikes -Roost -Whirlwind -Brave bird It's harder and harder set up the spikes in this highly agressive metagame, so if I can release one or a couple of lays, I feel satisfied enough. Skarmory is also a good response to those annoying gliscors that try to stall me , or those boosted Scizors or Terrakions demanding be whirlwinded... and of course to those outrage locked dragons that like to stamp it's heads aganist my rocky helmet again and again while I'm using roost. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Gliscor (M) @ Toxic orb trait: Poison heal E.V.'s: 252 HP/ 184 Def/ 72 Spd Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk) -Protect -Substitute -Toxic -Earthquake Wow! This thing is so GOOD that must be banned! Not only have a fantastic typing, it also have a godsend ability in poison heal making it almost unstatusable. It can switch into the electric, earth, and fighting attacks. It's completly walled by skarmory, steel types with an untouched air ballon, Bronzong, Xatu and other poison heal gliscors. The first time I've see this set didn't like it too much because the lack of coverage......until I tryed. With this set, gliscor is so annoying that it makes cry. Being able of switching often to a large portion of the metagame to poison it is simply amazing. Every player should give it a try to quickly fall in love with it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Jellicent (M) @ Leftovers trait: water absorb E.V.'s: 248 HP/ 144 Def/ 44 Spd Bold nature (+Def, -Atk) -Taunt -Will-o-wisp -Recover -Night shade And last but not least my spin blocker. This guy is so great aganist most rain teams. It can shut down many annoying pokes with taunt and leave a nice burn. As I dind't put any E.V. on SpAtk I'm using nigth shade for fix damage. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've been testing this team for a while with great succes! Well. That's all! Any rate would be appreciated. I wouldn't finish without congratulating Smogon for the hard work it's doing for the pokemon fans like all of us. And at last but not least I would apologize for my bad english as it's not my mother language. Thankyou everybody!
