Intro:Hi, I've been lurking on Smogon for a little bit, and finally decided to put together a competitive team and actually compete. This is my first RMT, and the team itself hasn't done that bad, considering it's my first real team. It peaked at 1271 before certain threats began bogging me down. This team is based around Pokemon with very high offensive capabilities, with the weakest base SpAtk/Atk stats belonging to Genesect. Alright, so now to the team... Team Building Process: Dragonite has been my favorite poke since Gen 1, and finally in Gen 5 it became a real beast. Multiscale, bla bla everyone knows about it. Almost always gives Dragonite a turn to D-Dance, and then wreck havoc. Keldeo is a great poke as well. Solid stats let it boost up with a calm mind, and sometimes it even sweeps whole teams after I switch into it from Genesect. Wanted to trap other annoying steels, and Magnezone seemed like a good idea. It forms a very nice, solid core with Keldeo and Dragonite, taking outrages like a champ. But in some matches it's completely useless, so if there's another good steel monster out there, Magnezone will be gone in a flash. Ahh, yes. The infamous Genesect, annoying the hell out of people and being a fantastic revenge killer. This guy is the glue that holds my team together; it has saved me many times. Its U-turn also serves well in junction with Magnezone's volt switch. So now I had two steels, leading to the thought 'What the heck, I'll throw another dragon onto my team!' thus leading to latios's spot. Latios is fabulous at it's job. Every team needs a counter specially for this pokemon, or they will be swept by it without a doubt. Draco meteor is used for emergency purposes only, and because of that it's almost never used. But when it is used, it always takes out huge chunks of almost any pokemon. Last but not least is the muscly monster Terrakion. Nothing can easily take the appropriate choice-banded move from him, so the only problem is when people predict and come in with a counter. He's not always used though, and is a dead weight in maybe 30% of my battles. A Closer Look: Genesect @ Choice Scarf Trait: Download EVs: 112 Atk / 176 SAtk / 220 Spd Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef) - Explosion - Thunderbolt - Ice Beam - U-turn Currently the most popular pokemon in DreamWorld OU, and for good reason. This mon is definitely the team player of every match. I always lead with him, letting him heavily dent or even KO certain mons. But most importantly his U-turn lets me break focus sashes and multiscale on Dragonite. He's also able to OHKO sometimes with Ice beam or Thunderbolt, which most people don't think of for some reason. Explosion has been useful for a few matches, but I always have to think hard before using it. I'm thinking about replacing that move with something else. Two of the main problems Genesect faces is the uncommon FirePunch on Deoxys-S and Choice Scarf Mences. If those are on the other team, they will without a doubt OHKO Genesect in the first few turns. Magnezone @ Choice Specs Trait: Magnet Pull EVs: 148 HP / 252 SAtk / 108 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Thunderbolt - Volt Switch - Flash Cannon - Hidden Power [Fire] Magnezone causes a lot of trouble for the other teams, half of the time. Choice specs Magnezone has tremendous power, and takes huge chunks out of anything without decent special defense. Volt turn works really well sometimes, if I'm fast enough to use it, and thunderbolt nets me many OHKO's on unwary water pokemon. Flash cannon is there as coverage, and hidden power fire wrecks steels. Keldeo @ Leftovers Trait: Justified EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Secret Sword - Hydro Pump - Hidden Power [Ice] - Calm Mind Keldeo is a blessing to the team. It can take on Blaziken, Excadrill, and other huge threats. Its colossal special attack and above average speed make it a perfect sweeper, and the unexpected HP Ice allows it to OHKO many dragons without a calm mind. Secret Sword is a good STAB move and is used a lot when I don't want to risk a miss from Hydro pump. Calm mind is self explanatory, I boost, they fear. Terrakion @ Choice Band Trait: Justified EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Close Combat - Stone Edge - X-Scissor - Quick Attack Terrakion is the muscle of the team. Choice band slapped on 357 attack is no joking matter, and the STAB moves are amazing. Not many mons can take a choice banded close combat from Terrakion, but a few can outspeed and OHKO. Quick attack is on there to revenge kill, but being stuck with quick attack doesn't help very much. I'm thinking about changing to Choice Scarf, but the drop in power would be very noticeable I imagine. Fluffy (Dragonite) (M) @ Lum Berry Trait: Multiscale EVs: 6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Dragon Dance - Outrage - ExtremeSpeed - Fire Punch Dragonite is a real champ. He takes earthquakes like they're nothing. :D Not just earthquakes though. At full health, he can pretty much take anything. Extreme speed lets him take out fast, weak sweepers and outrage tears holes in teams. Dragon dance lets him outspeed many mons and fire punch lets me take care of steels. Lum berry is a lifesaver as well, letting me continue after getting toxic'd or burned. Latios (M) @ Expert Belt Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Draco Meteor - Surf - Hidden Power [Fire] - Psyshock Latios saves my sorry butt in many matches. DRACO METEOR!!!!! Threat eliminated! -Yes- Hidden power fire does quite a lot of damage coming off of his massive special attack, and on a steel it's almost guaranteed to KO. Psyshock is attacks the opponent's defense instead of SpDefense, but I still find myself walled by Chanseys and Blisseys. But it does work on other pokemon at times, so it will stay. Surf is a great move, can't think of a reason why I would replace it. Conclusion:This team had done pretty well, but I'm sure it can do much better. I'm not sure what moves or mons should be changed; I don't have very much experience. I generally have problems with anything that can outspeed me. Good examples are Agiligross, Gengars, and ScarfChomps. Thanks for reading.
