Gen 6 ORAS OU Sample Teams


hosted by me (with a lot of help) | banner by McMeghan | sprite converter

The main goal of this thread is to archive teams that do an exemplary job showcasing certain playstyles / archetypes that are prominent in the current metagame. This can help beginner and intermediate level players get acclimated to the metagame and just be a general tool to those in need of teams.

I'm going to be actively looking for teams to archive and filtering out teams that are no longer that effective. I'll be consulting a lot of people when making these decisions to ensure high quality teams are added. I hope this resource is of great use, and if there are any questions, please PM me on here or Discord!

See the following post for the teams!

CHANGELOG (in chronological order):
 
Last edited:
forgot to post when i made these changes the other day:

i added the manaphy + mega alakazam spikes team z0mOG used in stour playoffs. it's a great example of a mega alakazam spikes build, and it shows AV tornadus-t's utility on certain spikes builds. i also removed sabella's suicune bulky offense since these types of teams have fallen out of favor recently. i also edited the ABR team to have standard keldeo as FriendOfMrGolem120 helpfully pointed out above. thanks!
 
i added the classic mega slowbro + keldtar spike build by Lemaitre. it was used a very good amount both last stour and the one before, and it's a more standard example of mega slowbro spikes than the TDK team. it is an older team, but it's still really good in the current meta. i wanted to add this team when i originally posted the thread, but Lemaitre was MIA. goes to show i only add teams after consulting the original creator!

Gliscor got the wrong nature in lemaitre's team
 
Could anyone find a crawdaunt or lopunny team thats viable enough to be posted here. I cant find any at the moment and i rly love those two mons and would love to use them high ladder
 
Gliscor got the wrong nature in lemaitre's team
fixed. tagging FriendOfMrGolem120 since i know he likes to keep the paste updated for RoA roomtours.

at one point i considered adding the mega lopunny spikes build that anti made, but it isn't too indicative of the meta, especially compared to the other spikes builds already featured in this thread. mega lopunny has fallen off a ton over the last year, so it isn't something that necessitates a team in samples.

if you're interested, you can copy the aforementioned team from this replay with spreads and whatnot from other teams in this thread (or the analyses, though many of those are bad).

crawdaunt is really niche. it hasn't seen much relevant usage since the last ORAS OLT (i think). it was a pretty significant trend back then though. you could use the first team from this post by Bloo/Infernal. i've played around with similar teams and this specific one somewhat recently, and it holds up decently well. i think the meta is just not too kind to crawdaunt right now, and that's definitely the biggest thing holding this build back nowadays.

hope that helps!
