All Gens Ruins of Alph Sample Teams



banner by Kaiju Bunny

Hello! This thread is here to archive teams across all six old Overused generations and showcase popular playstyles and archetypes of the current metagames. Its aim is to help beginners and intermediate level players to get acclimated to the tiers, or simply to help anyone in need of a solid team to play.

Most of these teams come from the Ruins of Alph room Sample Teams. Those are updated by knowledgeable hosts who will contact top players directly to keep them up to date with the current metagame. Thus, submissions are not open like in current generation tiers.

About credits : It is pretty hard to give proper credits in the oldest generations because of lot of archetypes were created ages ago by long forgotten players and several variants of those have been used by everyone since. "Submitted by" means this is a recent take of a generic playstyle adapted to the current metagame. Those who don't have any mention are so classic no one can even claim if it a special submission of them. If you feel a team has not been credited correctly and have what it takes for us to do so, please PM the host.​

Banned deucer.
question for one of the oras ou sample teams.
184426


how does this deal with sd knock m-scizor? assuming we are using standard spreads here

+2 16+ Atk Scizor-Mega Knock Off (97.5 BP) vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Jellicent: 396-468 (98.2 - 116.1%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO

jellicent is not a counter and this team is kind of forced to rely on spikes thunder wave ferrothorn & i guess sd gliscor to handle m-scizor which is not really reliable in the long term. maybe it would be better to run a colbur berry or speedy jellicent but this could still be situational depending on the match up
