Hello! This thread serves to be a place for successful UU teams intended to help new players get acclimated to the metagame and different playstyles. The subtle differences in each tier can make UU seem overwhelming, even to seasoned veterans of other tiers. Here, you can post your own team for archiving for new UU players to use.

Posting Guidelines
  • Give a short explanation of the role that each member of your team plays, and how the team works.
  • Provide an importable.
  • You must have some experience with your team before posting. Don’t post a team you just made on the team builder and thought looked good. Providing replays is a good way to prove that you have used your team a fair bit and that it’s viable; it will also give us an idea of how to play with the team.
  • Your team must represent the current metagame.
Samples selection will be done by co-host Ark and myself.

Pretty straightforward offensive team that's managed to hold on with minor edits since the beginning of the Generation. Krookodile and Celebi together can smash balance, with Krook providing utility with Rocks and Knock Off. (Shoutout LilOu for the set, come back to us buddy) Crobat is a fast defogger, and also does a bit of damage with Brave Bird. Vincune is a generally annoying win condition that suddenly lost one of the most annoying checks in the world, and since the main checks to Vincune are handled by Celebi (in the case of Seismitoad and Jellicent) and Krookodile (also Jellicent but also Volcanion) it can generally have a good path to sweep if you play it right. Cobalion is a second wincon, and double dance is pretty good, and since Faeries are annoying I run SteelZ here. Scarf Lati is speed control and a minor check to Voltturn.

The full RMT can be found HERE.

Actually have replays this time!

Started playing again a few days ago. I made some small adjustments to my previous team for USUM. This team does have a few threats so its best to be wary of the following: SubCM Chandelure and SubSeed Serperior.

Aggron-Mega is the dedicated Lead, I run Avalanche to OHKO Gliscors who go for the EQ against me. I run 252+ Atk to make my Aggron-Mega as threatening as possible, with the 252 HP giving it a reasonable level of bulk. Blissey covers special defense, and Fire Blast still remains essential. I have tested with Seismic Toss, but being setup fodder for Scizor, Doublade and Cobalion is very disadvantageous.

Scizor and Infernape are CB users that grant me a good level of speed control with their boosted priority moves via Technician and Iron Fist. As a result, the team tends to perform quite well against Trick Room or Sticky Web teams since it doesn't rely heavily on Speed. Infernape is also a great Wallbreaker and I run Thunder Punch for Azumarill, Tentacruel, Mantine and Primarina switch-ins. I've started running Defog on Scizor at the expense of Superpower to provide some respite against hazard stackers.

Chesnaught and Suicune form the physically defensive core. I have started to run 144 Speed on Chesnaught to outrun Adamant Azumarill, specifically the BD variant. The Rocky Helmet on Chesnaught is used to punish U-turners. Bulk Up prevents boosters from setting up on you. Most physical threats such as Crawdaunt, Mamoswine, Cobalion, Entei, Scizor, Kommo-o etc. are dealt with between the pair. Suicune also acts as a lategame win condition.

Made this team with ABR for snake but I've been laddering with it a bit in this meta and it's been working out pretty well (peaked #1 at 1803 pts!!). Anyway the main draw was to build around xatu which seemed like a fairly underrated pokemon, useful for walling most (non sd) gliscor & klefki sets as well as providing some useful utility to the team with magic bounce; we gave it protect to get out of choice locked pursuit/knock scenarios & rocky helmet for punishing sr users like ladgron and steelix. After that we decided max def defog scizor would be the best partner for keeping hazards off, capable of beating the pokemon xatu struggle with (such as mamo & terrak). After this we decided to just make it full stall & added the standard core of bliss + alo + quag. As you can see blissey lacks heal bell as we considered toxic + rocks to be more useful (we have an alternative heal beller in altaria anyway). Quagsire is curse to give the team a semi decent win con, as well as walling the plethora of setup sweepers (coba, scizor, altaria etc. you know the drill). Not much to say on the alo set, scald + knock seemed most useful since we appreciated spreading burns & lacked a pokemon with knock off on the team. Last pokemon is max def dd altaria with heal bell; this generally covers the remaining threats such as sd hera & crawdaunt and provides status removal for the team as well as another win con. Main threats to the team would be heal bell + nasty plot toge & most serperior sets, as well as the standard stallbreakers like hera, but they can definitely all be beaten if you play well enough.

Just like to add the only reason I'm posting this is because people are just stealing it and claiming it as their own at this point (fuck miyoka lmao), but it's a good team and has been winning a lot so have fun with it lads.

Hard to find replays of matches on the ladder that weren't just auto wins or boring, but this one vs sacri was pretty decent I suppose:

Oh my god it was you who's using this team. Just a random thing to let you know I'm building with NP Lucario now specifically for this team. Xatu plus scizor is a nice choice I think, thanks for sharing.
 
#9


the origins of my team was actually pretty mindless. the thought process behind it was "lol kommo-o is pretty hard to kill once set up, you know what would make it even harder to kill? aurora veil". at that point i had three of the team members done. i like the dd set for z-mo because it's able to pressure fairies without needing to rely on clang. speaking of clang, the ev spread lets kommo-o guarantee the ko vs latias with clang. now for the fourth and fifth pokemon i obviously put a lot of thought into it and put two of the most dangerous set up pokemon in the tier in scizor and latias on the team. scizor here runs quick attack because it's great for chipping away at tenta / moltres / manectric / rotom wash which can be pretty irritating lol. latias runs the electrium set except with life orb and i've found it to still be pretty cool it's good for empoleons and shit that try to get rid of veil. i like psychic more than psyshock here because it's good for damaging physically bulky mons like rotom and gliscor without having to use draco but psyshock is fine to pressure blissey and shit. doublade is here as a scizor check and scolipede check. i love gyro ball here because it's great for checking scolipede and gliscor which is why i'd give it the nod over iron head. pak peaked like #1 and #12 in like one night and i've had success with it in random test games vs friends so i assume it works.

Basically i'm tryna stock up on teams rn and I wanted to make one based on the core my best friend TSR posted here: http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/usum-uu-cores.3621584/#post-7591225

So I started this team with Azumarill, Talonflame, and Serperior, and looking at this team, its literally a FAT L to Mega Manectric. I personally hate having a team without a Ground type, so badabing thats where Hippowdon comes in with having a great matchup against Volt Turn in general along with Mega Manectric. Now I need rocks, and thought since I already have a Ground type, the typing of Cobalion and offensive presence it brings is perfect for the team, so I added Cobalion. Now obviously when you have a team kind of centered around Talonflame, your gonna need reliable hazard removal, so I picked Empoleon for a Latias switch in, and hazard control. Looking at the team with these pokemon: Cobalion, Talonflame, Azumarill, Hippowdon, Serperior, and Empoleon, I realized Rotom-W pretty much has free reign, my best bet is to revenge kill it with Serperior. So I immediately changed it to one of Rotom-W's hardest counters in Mega Sceptile, and made it a similar set to fulfill the role I will be missing with the loss of Serperior. Cobalion is the rocker, Talonflame is the bopper, Azumarill puts dents in the enemy team, Hippowdon is the Volt Turn answer and phaser, Mega Sceptile is the sub seeder and Rotom-W answer, and Empoleon is the Latias switch in, along with the hazard control. Only thing about this team is the best answer you've got to Serperior is revenge killing with Talonflame, which shouldn't be that difficult if you play it right but yeah it can get troublesome.

A fairly standard bulky offense team. The ideas of the team is to use good type synergy among the Pokemon to defend against threats and generate momentum to launch attacks as it has multiple avenues to sweep with Serperior, Azumarill, and Lucario. Gliscor also often has chances to stall out the opponent.

Lucario was selected as the first Pokemon to have a good mtchup against many stall teams, since Z Focus Blast OHKOs Quagsire 100% of the time. I wanted to make sure stall was not at all an issue so I also added SubSeed Serperior which is pretty well known for breaking stall. It works well because Lucario can often start from even turn 1 to start attacking their defensive core, while Serperior can mop up the remains. Rotom-Wash gives good defensive synergy with the attackers and provides momentum for them to get free turns to attack with. Gliscor provides a very useful Electric immunity - with special defense, it even counters defensive Rotom-Wash - and the essential SR. It also builds on the defensive synergy.

With that main part of the team done, I looked for things that still countered or posed big issues. Muk Alolan helps deal with the big Latias problem and makes it much easier for Lucario to sweep. Since my Steel type was hardly a good Dragon resist, I choose Azumarill as a Fairy. It also provides priority which is good because my team is quite slow for bulky offense. It helps weaken Amoonguss for Serperior and Lucario - even Ice Punch is usable on it for this reason.

Weaknesses include:
  • No Fairy resists which sucks when my opponent has an Azumarill, could add more defense to Rotom-Wash for this
  • No good Amoonguss switch in, although Gliscor beats it handily if its Toxiced
  • Serperior weak if they Leech Seed Muk
  • No Fairy resist also means its quite Altaria weak
Replays:
https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7uu-669167862

Some good predictions by my opponent killing Lucario made it easier for them, but I proved Gliscor is a strong Pokemon anyways as it almost walled their team.

https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7uu-665709159

After my opponent makes some mistakes by losing Amoonguss, Serperior can win despite hax.

Sadly nobody likes to save replays when they lose versus this team, so I don't have any stall replays. But this team really is designed to crush stall, which is does a decent job of, while still not being shit. I won't say it's a great team, but it's okay and at least has some straightforward strategies.

This team is a stall team with the standard Alo & Bliss core. It has Quagsire for set-up sweepers, rocky helmet Mandibuzz to punish physical attackers, trapper Azu to trap gliscor first turn and mons like superior and latias, and sub seed Mega Sceptile as a wall breaker and check to rotom. This stall team is more offensive then most in that it's good at eliminating sweepers so that Sceptile can set up and win. The team has great coverage, covers the most prominent mons on the viability rankings and doesnt have issues with wall breakers like Heracross and Haxorus. It does have weaknesses to stall breakers like Gliscor who toxic and taunt too prevent heal bell which is why it's important to trap and kill Gliscor with Azu as soon as possible.

Well, this is the team I made and used since about a week. It allows me to get a pretty nice Elo on the UU Ladder.
Aggron-Mega is one on my answer to Serperior / Latias. Thanks to Avalanche it can OHKO with some cheap Serperior and Latias while OHKO Gliscor (with 120 BP) without any cheap. Gliscor is my Defogger and feat well on the team. Acrobatics allows it to OHKO Heracross which is #1 threat for Stall Team. Then we have a classic core with Quagsire / Alomomola and Blissey. Muk-Alola can trap some Pokemon or Knock Off. The spread can seem kinda weird but it permit Muk-Alola to always survive a Guts Boosted Close Combat Heracross from full while outspeeding Relax Swampert.

M-Sharpedo Hazard Offense

(click for a heater team)

2018-01-03 (2).png


Was doing okay with this team so far, so I thought that it'd be a fun sample for newcomers. I'm not gonna lie, I'm ass at building but once I built this I knew it would go. Simple Hyper Offense based around momentum from Hydreigon and keeping hazards up, hence the Freeze-Dry Mamo and the jank ass Klekfi set (which has put in work from time to time). Chandelure is Scarf and Hydreigon is Specs because I originally wanted a better MU versus defog Gliscor, but Scarf Chandelure puts in work versus offensive builds and Specs Hydreigon is too nice at keeping up the momentum and breaking what this team needs broken.

Insta-L from Team Preview
-Alomomola/Bliss core (gotta outplay that)
-Suicune (outplay this too)
-Any Fighting Type (people usually misplayed so I was okay, Chandelure is literally your only check and that's bad)
-Suicune + Any Fighting Type w/ Bulk (might as well ff unless you have the game of your life)
-Stall (didn't take an L to stall but like I played trashcans so if you play a real stall mu you might have to play like a god)

Started playing again a few days ago. I made some small adjustments to my previous team for USUM. This team does have a few threats so its best to be wary of the following: SubCM Chandelure and SubSeed Serperior.

Aggron-Mega is the dedicated Lead, I run Avalanche to OHKO Gliscors who go for the EQ against me. I run 252+ Atk to make my Aggron-Mega as threatening as possible, with the 252 HP giving it a reasonable level of bulk. Blissey covers special defense, and Fire Blast still remains essential. I have tested with Seismic Toss, but being setup fodder for Scizor, Doublade and Cobalion is very disadvantageous.

Scizor and Infernape are CB users that grant me a good level of speed control with their boosted priority moves via Technician and Iron Fist. As a result, the team tends to perform quite well against Trick Room or Sticky Web teams since it doesn't rely heavily on Speed. Infernape is also a great Wallbreaker and I run Thunder Punch for Azumarill, Tentacruel, Mantine and Primarina switch-ins. I've started running Defog on Scizor at the expense of Superpower to provide some respite against hazard stackers.

Chesnaught and Gastrodon form the physically defensive core. The Rocky Helmet on Chesnaught is used to punish U-turners. Bulk Up prevents boosters from setting up on you. Most physical threats such as Crawdaunt, Mamoswine, Cobalion, Entei, Scizor, Kommo-o etc. are dealt with between the pair. Gastrodon also acts as an excellent stopper to the Volt-Turn combo. I have started using Gastrodon since Research Week 2.

Great team! I used it to ladder a bit and really liked it. I experimented with Rockium Terrakion over Blissey as Blissey lost to some common threats that this team struggles against anyway, like: Taunt/Sub Chandelure, Serperior (as you mentioned), Grass Knot Infernape, CroCune + Gliscor teams, etc. While it doesn't deal with Serperior, it gives the team a way to break through fatter cores and speed ties with Infernape (also outspeeds the whole unboosted tier after RP if I'm not wrong). I liked it a bit more.

Some other things to try:
216 Speed on Scizor outspeeds base 50s (like Azu although no one runs timid)
Knock Off > Pursuit on Scizor
Spikes > Bulk Up on Chesnaught

Loved using this team in general though, really fun team!
