    SM OU Mega-Diancie Sun (Peaked #13, 1950)

    Hey, First off, I really like the team. I have been preaching the wonders of ScarfSerp for ages now, so it's lovely to see a fellow user of it. You mention how Buzzwole does not have a particularly big role to play on the team, but I think replacing it with something like Zapdos (as suggested...

    SM OU Monsters in the Grass: who says Grass is the worst offensive typing?? (ELO 2000+, 87% GXE)

    Hey! Thanks for the rate and for the recommendations. Rock Slide over Stone Edge is 100% the right way to go and I didn't even think about it, so that's a fantastic suggestion. Re EVs, the main reason I run speed is to be able to outspeed max speed Magearna and 20 Speed EV Zapdos to be able to...

    SM OU Monsters in the Grass: who says Grass is the worst offensive typing?? (ELO 2000+, 87% GXE)

    Hi all, Coming at you with another team, this time: Grass spam! Once again, this team features my favourite mon and the undisputed GOAT of the tier: Scarf Serperior. However, this time he has brought along some Grass-type friends to destroy the meta with. Hope you all enjoy! Grass has often...

    SM OU Z-Giga Impact Greninja? (ELO 2000+, Top 10)

    Yeah, imo the best sweepers this gen are bulky ones that can recover health and get more than +1 or mons that automatically get stat boosts like Contrary Serp and Soul Heart Magearna. The reason mons like Mence and Dragonite aren't common anymore is that getting +1 just isn't good enough anymore...

    Hey! Thanks for the kind words. Yeah, I'm the same as you, I don't really like using other people's teams. I also post RMTs so people can get ideas for certain sets they might to use as well. Have a nice week! :)

    SM OU Dual Screens Koko + Gyarados Z-Bounce, Hyper Offense - 1750 ELO

    Hey! Nice team, first of all. Have you considered running Stone Edge on Lucha over Roost? With Screens up, I think running Roost isn't as important as a move to hit Zap, which you've said is a problem for your team. I looked through the replays you linked, and the one time you click Roost it...

    SM OU Z-Giga Impact Greninja? (ELO 2000+, Top 10)

    Hey! Yeah, I find the only special walls you'll really have trouble with are Ttar and Chansey, both of which I've outlined above. Other common special walls: Toxapex: Can be dealt with by Lele, Koko, and Serp Mag: Any variant is 1v1'd by Volc. No recovery so the AV set is easily worn down...

    SM OU RMT New player, wondering how I did! Serperior centered mixed team

    Hey! I always love seeing people using my favourite mon, Serp (shameless plug: see my RMTs). One thing I can recommend is to always run Timid > Modest on Serp. It has such a great speed stat that it's a shame to run modest. Running Modest, you get outrun by + Speed nature Base 100 Speed mons...

    SM OU Z-Giga Impact Greninja? (ELO 2000+, Top 10)

    My primary strategy when playing volt-turn spamming teams is to prevent getting caught in the cycle in the first place. If I see a Koko on the opponent's team and I think they will lead it, I can lead Serp and get off 66-78% just like that. There isn't a single mon on my team that let's Koko get...

    SM OU Z-Giga Impact Greninja? (ELO 2000+, Top 10)

    Been testing this team further on another account. Here are some more replays showing Volc's bulk and sweeping ability. https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-725438371 https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-725418326 https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-725399248...

    SM OU Z-Giga Impact Greninja? (ELO 2000+, Top 10)

    Luckily for this team, there is pretty much 0 chance opposing Volc can get +2 on me. The only mons that Volc can switch in and set up on are Mega Latias and Serp locked into Leaf Storm. I switch straight into Greninja as they +1 up. They either KO me or die to Z-Giga, then I go Serp and glare...

    SM OU Z-Giga Impact Greninja? (ELO 2000+, Top 10)

    I've decided to share this team because I've been playing too much mons lately, and giving it away will make me less tempted to keep playing. First off, proof: This account was initially a test account that I use to try new teams, so the GXE would be much higher if I used a fresh account. I...

    SM OU The Case for Double Stealth Rocks (Peak #1 Suspect ladder. 43-5 Record. GXE: 86.5)

    Hi, thanks for taking the time to review the team. From a competitive/laddering standpoint, of the 2 mons you suggested, I think Lele is the better option, seeing as I would have no way of beating +1 Gyarados/Volc/Mence or Mega-Scizor if I ran Hoopa. That being said, I don't really like...
