SM OU USM KB Hyper Offense (1460+)

Introduction:


Hey Guys! Glad to see that you've found this RMT! I'd like to show you a Hyper Offense Smogon OU Team I've recently been battling with, The team revolves around Kyurem-Black assisting my 3 sweepers: Gyarados, Hawlucha and Magearna. By beating their standard counters.

I'll now showcase the team, alongside descriptions for each team member.

The Team:

169806

Kyurem-Black @ Life Orb
Ability: Teravolt
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 32 Atk / 224 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive Nature
- Ice Beam
- Fusion Bolt
- Earth Power
- Roost​

The Star of the team! Kyurem-Black is a very powerful wallbreaker. Armed with it's gargantuan base 170 Attack, BoltBeam coverage and solid bulk, KB is a force to be reckoned with! Capable of punching sizeable holes into many offensive teams. However, the main reason it's on the team is because of it's valuable ability to assist Gyarados by eliminating Tangrowth, Zapdos in Hawlucha's case, and Heatran through Earth Power for Magearna's. Roost is used over a fourth coverage move in order to migrate Hazard and Life Orb damage and to act as reliable recovery in general.

224 SpA Life Orb Teravolt Kyurem-Black Ice Beam vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Zapdos: 390-460 (101.8 - 120.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO
224 SpA Life Orb Teravolt Kyurem-Black Ice Beam vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Assault Vest Tangrowth: 257-304 (63.7 - 75.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
32 Atk Life Orb Teravolt Kyurem-Black Fusion Bolt vs. 248 HP / 16+ Def Scizor-Mega in Electric Terrain: 153-181 (44.6 - 52.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
224 SpA Life Orb Teravolt Kyurem-Black Earth Power vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Charizard-Mega-X: 270-320 (90.9 - 107.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
224 SpA Life Orb Teravolt Kyurem-Black Earth Power vs. 252 HP / 128+ SpD Heatran: 364-432 (94.3 - 111.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

169582

Landorus-Therian @ Focus Sash
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
- Explosion
- Swords Dance
The Lead and the SR (Stealth Rock) Setter. Thanks to it's solid typing and superb Attack, Landorus-T is my lead of choice. Moves and Items are quite self-explanatory, Stealth Rock to punish switches, break sashes and to take advantage of the number of switches it forces. Earthquake is strong STAB with no drawbacks, doing respectable damage to most Pokemon which don't resist the move. Explosion is quite useful, Stopping slower hazard removers like Excadrill from using Rapid Spin, and providing a free switch-in for the team, Lastly Swords Dance is used in order to pressure Mega Diancie and Sableye, who can otherwise bounce Stealth Rock back.

252 Atk Landorus-Therian Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Diancie-Mega: 366-432 (151.8 - 179.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252 Atk Landorus-Therian Earthquake vs. 248 HP / 8 Def Sableye-Mega: 289-342 (95.3 - 112.8%) -- 75% chance to OHKO
252 Atk Landorus-Therian Explosion vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Tornadus-Therian: 355-418 (118.3 - 139.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+1 252 Atk Landorus-Therian Explosion vs. 0 HP / 68 Def Landorus-Therian: 447-527 (140.1 - 165.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

169585


Tapu Koko @ Light Clay
Ability: Electric Surge
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Reflect
- Light Screen
- Taunt
- Volt Switch

Another supporter for the team, Dual Screens Koko uses both Reflect and Light Screen mainly to give the Sweepers more opportunities to setup as well as activating Hawlucha's Electric seed and amplifying the power of Kyurem's Fusion Bolt, Max speed EVs combined with a Timid Nature are used in order to outrun common Defoggers such as Tornadus-T and Gliscor, This alongside Taunt lets Tapu Koko temporarily disable these Pokemon as they're often quite passive, Lastly Volt Switch is used in the last slot as a decently powerful Electric-Type STAB move which grabs momentum, it also allows it to check Tornadus-T and 1v1 Celesteela and Toxapex.

8 SpA Tapu Koko Volt Switch vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Tornadus-Therian in Electric Terrain: 242-288 (80.6 - 96%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
8 SpA Tapu Koko Volt Switch vs. 248 HP / 232+ SpD Celesteela in Electric Terrain: 162-192 (40.8 - 48.3%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery


169591




Hawlucha @ Electric Seed
Ability: Unburden
EVs: 104 HP / 244 Atk / 88 SpD / 72 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- High Jump Kick
- Acrobatics
- Roost
One of the three sweepers of the team, Hawlucha makes a very threating sweeper and late-game cleaner due to it's Solid offensive typing and great ability in Unburden. Acrobatics and High Jump Kick are both powerful STAB attacks with little to no drawbacks. Scoring easy OHKOs on offensive Pokemon such as Mega Swampert and Shift Gear Magearna at +2. Lastly, Roost turns Hawlucha into a more sustainable sweeper, allowing it to setup on defensive Pokemon such as Celesteela thanks to the Electric Seed Defense boost.

+2 244+ Atk Hawlucha High Jump Kick vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Magearna: 324-382 (107.6 - 126.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 244+ Atk Hawlucha Acrobatics (110 BP) vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Toxapex: 214-253 (70.3 - 83.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Black Sludge recovery
+2 244+ Atk Hawlucha Acrobatics (110 BP) vs. 0 HP / 68 Def Landorus-Therian: 313-370 (98.1 - 115.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock

169804


Gyarados-Mega @ Gyaradosite
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Crunch
- Earthquake
- Substitute
The second sweeper and Mega of this HO team, Dragon Dance Mega Gyarados is actually a great offensive check to Ash-Greninja, being able to avoid the 2HKO from it's Specs-boosted Hydro Pump after Stealth Rock damage, Intimidate is also a solid ability, allowing it to Intimidate shuffle and to increase the amount of opportunities it gets to setup a DD. Crunch is crucial a STAB attack, 2HKOing even defensive Pokemon such as Celesteela and Mega Slowbro, Earthquake is a neat coverage attack, providing Gyarados a way to dent defensive Heatran and AV Magearna, easily OHKOing the former at +1 and a high chance against the latter after Stealth Rock. Lastly Substitute is used in the last slot to shield Gyarados from burns and paralysis, it also allows it to setup on passive Pokemon such as Toxapex.

+1 252 Atk Mold Breaker Gyarados-Mega Earthquake vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Magearna: 330-390 (90.9 - 107.4%) -- 81.3% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
+1 252 Atk Mold Breaker Gyarados-Mega Crunch vs. 248 HP / 28 Def Celesteela: 211-250 (53.1 - 62.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
252 SpA Choice Specs Greninja-Ash Hydro Pump vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Gyarados-Mega: 121-143 (36.5 - 43.2%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock

169805

Magearna @ Fairium Z
Ability: Soul-Heart
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Fleur Cannon
- Shift Gear
- Calm Mind
- Thunderbolt
The final team member of the team, Magearna's access to Soul Heart, solid defensive typing, and Shift Gear make it a very good snowball sweeper, It also provides huge defensive utility despite being an offensive set, being able to soft-check powerful threats such as Tapu Lele and Mega Alakazam. Fairum Z in conjunction with Fleur Cannon becomes a one-time nuke which doesn't drop Magearna's Special attack, gives it a way to break past specially defensive Pokemon like Gastrodon and Chansey after a few Calm Mind boosts, and kickstart a sweep. Thunderbolt gives Magearna solid netural coverage, allowing it to hit Toxapex and Celesteela, while still taking a large chunk out of Heatran at +1 with Electric Terrain active.

+1 252 SpA Magearna Twinkle Tackle (195 BP) vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Zapdos: 520-613 (135.7 - 160%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Leftovers recovery
+1 252 SpA Magearna Twinkle Tackle (195 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 574-676 (150.2 - 176.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Leftovers recovery
252 SpA Magearna Fleur Cannon vs. 20 HP / 20 SpD Tapu Koko: 262-310 (91.6 - 108.3%) -- 50% chance to OHKO
+2 252 SpA Magearna Thunderbolt vs. 248 HP / 232+ SpD Celesteela in Electric Terrain: 430-506 (108.3 - 127.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Hey, this is a pretty neat idea. I’m glad you’re trying something creative with the standard dual screens. However, I think this can be made even better. Most of them will be small though.

170500
The first thing I suggest is making your Hawlucha Substitute or Stone Edge over Roost. Due to the very offensive nature of this team and the fact it has screens, using Roost makes Hawlucha take longer to set up and isn’t really helpful. Substitute lets you abuse switches and block later intimidates while Stone Edge targets pesky Zapdos. It really depends on what you value.

170502
Another thing I’d change is make Landorus-T Rock Tomb over Swords Dance. This lets you set Stealth rock before Tornadus can Defog and let the pokemon coming in after Lando abuse Tornadus even further. This applies especially to Kyurem-B.

170501
The last change I’m gonna suggest is make Tapu Koko U-Turn over Volt Switch. Just so you can always safely pivot in every situation; the damage isn’t important.

That’s all. Really cool team and idea dude. Hope I could help!
