SM PU HO - Illumise and the bad guys

Illumise & the bad guys

with access to wish, aromatherapy and u-turn, illumise is one of the best support in the game

- The hyper offensive team i am presenting you guys today is based around well-known heavy offensive threats in the PU metagame. When i built this team, I wanted to start off with Silvally and its Dragon Memory. Its RKS System ability allows it to take the rare Dragon-type and by extension learn the move Draco Meteor that nukes anything that doesn't resist it. Not to mention it also has access to Defog and Parting Shot for utility.
- After putting Silvally, the next Pokémon that came to my mind was Aggron. Seriously, this thing hits like a truck when equiped with a Choice Band and checks many of Silvally's threats, namely Clefairy and Silvally with the Fairy Memory.
- My team needed a revenge killer, and there is Primeape, the premier Fighting-type Choice Scarf user of the tier with its nice offensive stats and its Defiant ability, that pressures opposing hazard removal.
- A Ground-type immunity and Stealth Rocks were starting to be needed, that's why Mesprit was added. I opted for an offensive set because it pressures opposing teams with its incredible coverage options and keeps the momentum with U-Turn. I chose Psyshock and Ice Beam for its good coverage and because my team needed a strong unexpected Z-Move, I gave it the Psychium Z, making its Psyshock hitting on the special side and thus giving it more wallbreaking options.
- Skuntank was brought in because trapping Psychic-types and Ghost-types was very beneficial to the team and we needed a strong priority move brought by its Sucker Punch.
- Finally, the team was very weak to status moves like Will-O-Wisp, Toxic and Thunder Wave, but also easily worn down by entry hazards. That's why we needed a cleric. I tried to use Komala as a Wish passer, but it wass too passive and pretictable and i started to look for a unique combination of moves in Wish, Heal Bell/Aromatherapy and U-Turn/Volt Switch/Parting Shot. The only two Pokémon that can learn this combination of moves are Jolteon and Illumise. I chose Illumise because i found it really interesting, as it got a noticeable stat increase in the seventh generation. I gave it the Lagging Tail in order to have a slow U-Turn and make sure to pass the wish to the next Pokémon.

OK, so, it’s very hard to read all at once when it’s all compact like that. I suggest you use hide tags and sprites in the spaces between Pokemon explanation to make it look better and easier to read. Other than that, nice team!
