Regarding Future Sight + Wallbreaker and the fact stall / fat doesn't have any counterplay to it, I would like to share this Blissey set:
Blissey @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 200 HP / 252 Def / 56 SpD
- Seismic Toss
- Thunder Wave / Toxic
Stall with trapper Quagsire
:toxapex: :quagsire: :moltres: :corviknight: :blissey: :clefable:
This team showcases this new Quagsire set:
Quagsire @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
- Seismic Toss
Which can be used to kill...
I believe Mandibuzz still has a good niche in this metagame because it checks Spectrier and Kartana.
And can we talk about Kartana ? This thing is an absolute monster against bulkier teams:
+2 252 Atk Life Orb Kartana Knock Off (97.5 BP) vs. 208 HP / 104 Def Moltres: 344-406 (92.2 -...
This is a set I used months ago, it for sure still works against stall:
Kyurem @ Metronome
EVs: 56 HP / 252 SpD / 200 Spe
- Icicle Spear
You only need to spam Freeze Dry against Toxapex.
Icicle Spear beats Chansey / Blissey.
Speaking of unbans, do you think Arena Trap is still too much for OU / uncompetitive ?
I do think there seems to be more counterplay to it than there was pre DLC, and that Arena Trap could help to balance some threats.
I would like to start with a few observations that lead me to think there is...
That new metagame looks fresh.
Here is my attempt on DLC2 Stall after learning the metagame last weekend:
:mew: :toxapex: :clefable: :scizor: :flygon: :blissey:(this team is now outdated so don't use it lol)
Not a lot of things can check Kyurem-B efficiently.
One of them is Buzzwole, but I...
#1 Stall team
:mew: :rotom-heat: :mandibuzz: :toxapex: :chansey: :quagsire:
A lot of people start to have this team so here is the paste.
It uses Double Defog to prevent entry hazards.
Phys Def Mandibuzz helps to counter Dark Urshifu, Marowak-Alola, Sword Dance Rillaboom.
Thunder Wave on...
Even though Wish + Teleport Clefable is a very strong set, your team doesn’t have Stealth Rock, which a must.
Anyway, depending on your Togekiss set, 3 or 4 of your Pokemons have a healing move, so it is not too big of a deal if you don’t have Wish.
Softboiled + Moonblast + Stealth Rock + Knock...
I think with Hex Pult, Aegislash, probably Twave or Knock Off SR Clefable you already have a good enough wincon.
But you can try:
Corviknight, Clefable, Togekiss, Incineroar, Gastrodon, Dragapult
So you still have your Incineroar + Togekiss core.
Excadrill is going to be your number one threat.
That team is also quite weak to Spikes / Toxic Spikes.
I assume you use Earthquake on Gastrodon (otherwise it makes Primarina hard to check).
Maybe using Corviknight over Togekiss would help.
Thank you for feedback, below is an improved version assuming Dracovish gets banned (if not, it is still a great team but a bit weak to Band Dracovish which is why I prefered Celebi for now). I think it fixes every issue that last team had.
