    I built this team with my friend Moose 50 around a cool thundurus set he came up with to obliterate stall since as a bad player I need to build a counterteam in order to beat it.

    The defensive core was also semi-inspired by a team i stole off Jayde during suspect

    Ability: Defiant
    EVs: 68 Atk / 188 SpA / 252 Spe
    Naive Nature
    - Knock Off
    - Superpower
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hidden Power [Ice]/ Grass knot

    Thundurus has been slept on for the most part this gen, with its only notable usage being on sticky webs despite its great moveset. This particular set has been optimized to deal with standard toxapex stall, with Electrium-Z to kill clefable and Sableye after a tbolt. Knock off and superpower deal with chansey but don't hinder the set vs. non-stall team since knock is so versatile and reliable. The last move was originally grass knot but after a frustrating ladder session of zygarde, lando, and chomp on every other team, we decided to slash it for the ever basic HP ice.

    188 SpA Thundurus Thunderbolt vs. 252 HP / 32 SpD Clefable: 144-171 (36.5 - 43.4%)

    - Meteor Mash
    - Bullet Punch
    - Thunder Punch
    - Ice Punch

    Next up is Metagross. This mon is high key broken in ou right now, so i figured it would make a strong attacking core with thundurus. That's basically all the thought that went into picking this mon. Now right now you might be looking at the moveset and say, "wtf blarg, this looks like ass!" To be honest, yeah this set is countered pretty hard by things like ferrothorn or heatran, but this coverage has come in clutch in its fair share of games. Painfully few things in the metagame can come in safely on both tpunch and ice punch, and meteor mash is self explanatory. In ORAS, this set used to run hammer arm for ferro/tran, but I felt bullet punch was too good to pass up considering all the glass cannons and fast mons in ou.

    Jolly Nature
    - Rock Slide
    - Stealth Rock
    - Earthquake
    - Dragon Claw

    At this point, the team had strong wallbreaking potential but struggled against offense. Thundurus and Metagross are both fast mons, but were outsped by the majority of hyper offense. I added a scarf garchomp as a check to opposing scarfers and volcarona, which is an ever-present threat especially considering my first two mons. I decided to throw rocks on to this set for role compression and a semi-lure for people not expecting a bad set. For a long time, I had been convinced that scarf rocks was complete trash (shoutouts Hector Hard Mode), but i decided to switch to the dark side recently after being bailed out in quite a few games. Scarf chomp is a reliable way to get up rocks against naturally faster mons and people scared out by scarfchomp.

    Bold Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk
    - Defog
    - Taunt
    - Nature's Madness
    - Moonblast

    Next up is the designated hazard removal, ash greninja check, lead against stall, and mon that is impossible to find a cool picture of. Defensive Tapu Fini serves as the team's main water switchin (case dependent) and defogger. Nature's madness is notoriously obnoxious to switch in to, and this mon taunts fat mons and allows for a pivot that prevents status to my whole team excluding thundurus (which you're not going to be switching into attacks anyway). Defog is also helpful, since it ensures the team doesn't get overwhelmed by hazards, most importantly sticky web. 84 speed allows me to outspeed other fini, mons speed creeping 218, and uninvested zygarde.

    - Giga Drain
    - Knock Off
    - Hidden Power [Fire]

    Ah, tangrowth. I cannot emphasize just how good this mon is. This mon is the blanket check for all the scary physical mons that currently destroy this team. It is also the only mon on the team completely unthreatened by ferrothorn. With access to sleep powder, knock, and hp fire, many offensive teams struggle to deal with this mon. Despite this mon being the physical wall, I'm running a little spdef because it can double as emergency check to scald abusers and electrics. Unfortunately, since I run sleep powder, I tend to end up sacking this mon vs. metagross to wear it down with hp fires instead of risking the sleep powder. However, when you are able to switch in more comfortably, sleep powder is especially useful since it is the way that this fat mon slapped on a bulky offense team retains momentum.

    z0mog (Zygarde) @ Choice Band
    Ability: Aura Break
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    Adamant Nature
    - Thousand Arrows
    - Extreme Speed
    - Outrage
    - Iron Tail/ toxic/superpower

    Last up is my current favorite mon in the meta. Banded zygarde is in my opinion its best set at the moment, and its ability to mindlessly spam thousand arrows with little repercussion is what makes it so good. This mon is also a reliable revenge killer/late game sweeper with its banded espeed. I decided to slash the last move between iron tail, toxic, and superpower as each has its merits, but I currently use iron tail myself. It came in clutch once when I nearly lost to a scarf bulu, and out of fear, I have not changed it since. Zygarde is also quite bulky and can live a hit from most offensive mons, including many HP ices. Note that Zygarde is yet another mon with the potential to beat stall, especially if it switches in on a misty terrain scald.

    Since it has so much utility I think I'll leave 2 calc boxes here.

    Dug fails to trap this thing from full, so you can collect 2 consecutive kills vs stall if you play it right


    In conclusion, fuck stall

    actual conclusion (open)

    ha bet i got you good with that one. In reality, I believe this team is fully equipped to handle stall, but is prone to being overwhelmed by teams with many hardhitting mons. I also believe that at the end of the day, this team is very aesthetically pleasing, and isn't that the most important thing?

    4 ice weakness lol. I really don't like scarf rocks chomp. Why you don't use spikes+stealth rock ferro insted of tangrowth? (With power whip for fini. The problem with this is that ferrothorn with fini is contraproducent, but as you need defog support for thundurus... Do you accept changing the thundurus set? I like more the bulk up+fly set with flynium, is a pretty cool set. The other moves are obviusly wild charge and superpower.

    Congrats on number 1! Have you at all considered pursuit on Gross over something like BP? A lot of teams will run this on their Metagross if they have nothing else for lele which this team looks very weak to.
