Wrath of the Serpents (V.1) RMT This is my newest team. And my first real attempt at a Hyper Offensive team. I'm not sure how it is going to work so any advice will be very welcomed! My Lead: Forretress (F) Leftovers Ability - Sturdy Relaxed Nature 252 HP / 176 Def / 80 SpD - Gyro Ball - Rapid Spin - Spikes - Stealth Rock This is my usual lead. I use her to set out Spikes and Stealth Rock then often switch her back out and bring her in whenever I need to Rapid Spin or a good Physical Wall. Gyro Ball is thrown in there to do some decent damage. However (Could just be mine, I may breed a new one), I've found that she doesn't hit very hard. Using Gyro Ball when Super Effective only did 1/8th of health in damage in my last battle. However, Spikes, Stealth Rock, and Rapid Spin are more than enough reason for me to keep her. Choice Band User: Scizor (F) Choice Band Ability - Technician Adamant Nature 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD - Bullet Punch - U-Turn - Brick Break - Pursuit Ah Scizor... such an amazing Pokemon and she always seems to find her way on any of my teams somehow. A boosted priority Bullet Punch is so deadly, almost always 2HKO'ing the opponent if not a OHKO. I chose Brick Break over Superpower for two reasons: If my opponent has multiple Pokemon weak to Fighting, it could be useful to keep Scizor in, and Brick Break wouldn't lower any stats. Plus with Choice Band, it hits plenty hard if it's Super Effective, the only time I'd be using it. And it's also very useful if my opponent uses Dual-Screens, which is surprisingly common, I've found. Choice Scarf User: Terrakion - Choice Scarf Ability - Justified Jolly Nature 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe - Close Combat - Stone Edge - Earthquake - X-Scissor I've replaced my Reuniclus with a Choice Scarf Terrakion by suggestion of Novaray. The change was made due to my massive Fire weakness in Forretress and Scizor, and I use him to out-speed and kill Volcarona before it can do any massive damage to my team. At the same time, he makes an incredible sweeper and revenge-killer for my team with powerful STAB Close Combat and Stone Edge. Sub-Disable: Gengar (M) Black Sludge Ability - Levitate Timid Nature 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe - Shadow Ball - Focus Blast - Disable - Substitute Gengar seems to be hated by many. Using his massive speed, he's always able to get off Substitute, and then turn around and use Disable to shut down the opponent. It's so funny to watch someone rage as this happens to them. Then using his massive special attack stat, I can turn around and blast them with Shadow Ball or Focus Blast for massive amounts of damage. Gengar is such an amazing Pokemon to use if you can master him. First Physical Sweeper: Gyarados (M) Leftovers Ability - Intimidate Adamant Nature 56 HP / 248 Atk / 204 Spe - Waterfall - Stone Edge - Substitute - Dragon Dance Gyarados was one of the core members I knew I had to have on my team. He's such a powerful beaste Substitute is used to build up defenses (if the opponent tries to use a status move or i'm facing a non-effective attack) and to shield from status, which Gyarados cringes at. Once he's safe behind a Substitute, I build up a couple Dragon Dances then go on the sweep, using Waterfall and Stone Edge for great coverage and massive amounts of damage. I use stone edge over bounce for a few reasons. Mainly more damage and better coverage. So many Pokemon resist or only take neutral damage from flying type attacks. Many more massive damage from a rock type Offensive Dragon Dance User: Dragonite (F) Lum Berry Ability - Multiscale Adamant Nature (31 attack IVs) 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe - Outrage - Fire Punch - Earthquake - Dragon Dance Dragonite, the absolute core of my group, the only one I wanted even more than Gyarados. Using Multiscale and backed with Forretress's Rapid Spin support, she is always to get off a Dragon Dance, and that is all she needs. Then she goes on the offense using Fire Punch or Earthquake to take out any annoying steel types, then blasting way the rest of my opponent's team using a STAB Outrage. She nearly always gets a OHKO when backed with a Dragon Dance. Lum Berry is there to protect from status or to break the confusion caused by Outrage, whichever comes first. Well guys, that's my team. I appreciate any rates and advice from you all.
