    Abomasnow @ Choice Scarf
    Snow Warning
    52 Atk/ 200 SAtk/ 252 Spd/ 4 Hp
    Naive
    Blizzard
    Wood Hammer
    HP Fire
    EQ

    Standard hail starter, If he can do any more damage that would be a bonus. All i need him to do is just start some hail and, if he can, kill some pkmn. Hp fire for ferrothorn, scizor, EQ for fire types, WH Blizzard for stab moves.


    [​IMG] Tentacruel @ Black Sludge
    Liquid Ooze
    252 SDef/ 126 HP/ 126 SAtk/ 4 Spd
    Gentle
    Sludge Wave
    Scald
    Toxic Spikes
    Rapid Spin

    Special Wall. Does really well against Infernape and TTar. Sets up T Spikes and Spins away other hazards. Scald for STAB and chance for burn, Sludge Wave for another STAB and chance to poison. Black sludge to recover hp lost from hail

    [​IMG] Walrein @ Leftovers
    Ice Body
    252 Hp/ 130 SDef/126 Def
    Calm
    Substitute
    Toxic
    Blizzard
    Protect

    Stallrein. Stalls the hell out of other pokemon with hail damage and toxic. Sub to annoy and protect to continue the damage. Ice body recovers hp along with lefties. Blizzard for a powerful stab move


    [​IMG] Gliscor @ toxic Orb
    Ability: Poison Heal
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 HP/ 40 Def/ 216 Spe
    - Fling
    - Acrobatics
    - Eathquake
    - Protect

    Protect to guarantee Poison, Fling to poison something else, and after that, No Item! So Acrobatics is another reliable STAB that Gliscor gets alongside Earthquake


    [​IMG] Froslass @ ???
    Snow Cloak
    248 Hp/ 228 Def/ 32 Spd
    Timid
    Blizzard
    T-Wave
    Hail/spikes
    Substitute

    GREAT staller. substitute and snow cloak pose so many problems to other teams. Once she gets behind her sub and the opponent is paralyzed it annoys everyone. Spikes for some hazards along with the hail, Blizzard for STAB.


    The last pokemon is completely undecided, it was Kyurem but it got banned for VGC's. I'm basically looking at a special or mixed sweeper to replace it like Glaceon or maybe Mamoswine? If you could include a potential set with that pokemon that would be great. Keep in mind, no repeat items or banned VGC pokemon

    I'm no expert in VGC, but I believe there is a different thread for VGC RMTs, and that VGC is 4v4...not 6v6

    I'm no expert either, but I've moved this team to the other teams section and tagged it with the VGC category.

    Half ur team revolves around stalling but stalling wont get you anywhere since VGC battles are timed.

    You won't have time to stall, there are so many different Weather variations, this team is outclassed by other: Rain, Drought, and Sand teams. Sorry =/

    It's really not that simple, also hazards are not used in vgc, they aren't very useful, they leave you open for an attack while you do nothing to them, like using stat boosting moves
