NU - What's Their Last? - Round 7 (Submission Phase)

Not open for further replies.
So far the team doesnt have a sturdy Normal/flying check, and sub braviary might be a threat as it sets up on vileplume and druddigon, and oricorio doesnt have recovery to consistently switch in and check it. Team would also appreciate secondary fire and poison resist because golbat might be annoying, and there arent electric immunities to the team. So my answer here would be:

Rhydon @ Eviolite
Ability: Lightning Rod
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Rock Polish
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Megahorn

Rhydon provides most of utility named here, while being a secondary win condition, and there isnt much to say else. A team is tad weak to ice, but i guess hitmonlee and sneasel can soft check them


formerly boring

Delphox @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Fire Blast
- Psyshock
- Grass Knot
- Trick

There is nothing faster then sceptile and Z-Stone Edge Barbaracle is just GG after a Shell Smash so there should be a scarfer that can deal with both Grass-types and able to revenge kill +2 Barbaracle. The team synergies well with Delphox as last, both typings of Delphox aren't on the team yet as well which makes me think even more this is the last mon!

Vaporeon @ Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 204 HP / 248 Def / 56 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Scald
- Heal Bell
- Protect
- Wish
(yea the EV's probs aren't these, I can only assume basic 248 HP, 252 defense. Bold.)

It soft checks Sneasel, Fire types, Protect scouts on a number of pokemon for Vileplume to always come in safely on Rotom-mow/Sceptile and provides wishes for Drud who is somewhat needed in softchecking other pokemon such as normal types and other trivial contact makers. Besides this it gives a better ground type/rock answere for Oricorio and stuff to put in work, because without steelix worn, oricorio won't go anywhere.
grats to Jarii for winning this week ! the correct mon was actually scarf emboar

Garbodor @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Aftermath
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 Spe
Impish Nature
- Gunk Shot
- Spikes
- Toxic Spikes
- Haze

This team doesnt have a fairy resist, and while team has some speedy pokemon and priority, most of them gets outsped by opposing Virizion which just runs through entire team, while being troubled by vileplume as well. Considering he has choice specs houndoom, i would assume that Doom+piloswine is enough for a fire check for him. Water type also isnt an option, considering all the weaknesses i just mentioned, only viable one could be Qwilfish which is inferior option compared to Garbodor, as garb is better answer to Whimsicott. And also, Emboar and Sneasel are also big threats to the team, as Expert belt emboar can hit almost everything super effectively, so Helmet+ aftermath garbodor deals with that.
Team also has a Spinblocker in Rotom , and is rather offensive, so a spiker like this is appreciated.
