Hello everyone. Previously, we had a total of eight threat list threads scattered around the RMT forum. As you can imagine, that looked quite messy and unorganized. As such, the RMT staff has decided to make one general threat list thread to make things easier to find. A threat list for each tier can be found below in separate posts. Simply look for the one you need for your RMT and copy and paste it for quick use!

  1. OU Threat List
  2. UU Threat List
  3. Ubers Threat List
  4. RU Threat List
  5. LC Threat List
  6. NU Threat List
  7. Dream World OU Threat List
  8. Generation 4 OU Threat List
Click on the one you need and have fun!

Baton Pass - Baton Pass teams have very few goals in mind - they either wish to pass to Espeon with a lot of boosts, or pass to a 4 attack Sweeper at Air Balloon or Focus Sash. To defeat these teams, keep these questions in mind:

  • Can I break the chain successfully and/or somewhat easily?
  • Am I not helpless to Espeon with only defensive boosts?
  • Can I hit hard enough to quickly kill these teams after the chain is broken?
  • How could I potentially beat Focus Sash Smeargle before it gets out of hand?
This is perhaps the hardest strategy to prepare against. If you evaluate that you simply can't beat these teams through brute force or passive play, then you may want to add Perish Song or Haze to a Pokemon, in order to give yourself a much better chance.

Stall - Stall teams can be weather or non-weather, but they all focus on the same central goal of laying down hazards and proving solid defense while the foe struggles to bring in Pokemon that can break them.

Being able to beat stall teams require a much different kind of thinking than trying to defeat archetypes of weather. Be sure to answer these questions:

  • Can I control the hazards of the game, either by setting up my own or having a successful spin strategy?
  • Is my team fine in the long-run by entry hazards?
  • Can I attack from both sides of the attacking spectrum successfully?
  • Can I lure in defensive threats that wall a large portion of my team and get rid of them (or even make them useless?)
If you can't do any of these things and answered no, then your team isn't bring enough offensive pressure to match, as well as not enough defensive pressure to fight back. You will simply be stalled out, fighting to even land effective hits while slowly being worn down by hazards. The trick to fixing your team here is to fill in some of the roles listed above. For example, if Blissey walls much of your team and you have a Rotom-w with Will-o-Wisp, Thunderbolt, Hydro Pump, and Volt Switch, consider switching the Rotom-w into a choiced Pokemon, giving you the option to suprise Blissey and Trick it.
