PostSubject: Tyler's Main Team   Wed Jun 16, 2010 3:40 pm

This is the team I use practically all the time, I'm sure most of you have seen it. I've been working on this team roughly for 3 or so weeks. Never put that much effort in though. This team ain't up to the metagame either, but really, it doesn't need to be. It win's some, it looses some. Highest CRE I've gotten was like 1400 something, which isn't much compared to some other experts out there.

Team Building

This Team started out as an Intimidate team, which failed majorly.

So I replaced some with superior pokemon, which had similar roles. Gallade replaced blissey cuz I hate blissey and gallade served as a special absorber and hit back with banded attacks.

The team started to get good, but Dusknoir and gallade didn't cut it. I needed a harder bander, and a better special wall. This became my team for a long while.

Just one last adjustment, I needed a good, strong priority attack. And I needed that poke to last, so no Scizor who dies in one hit all the time. So I chose Dragonite and his extreme speed, who only dies in one hit occasionally, but I have Snorlax to take the ice attacks.

In Depth

Infernape @ Focus Sash

Ability: Blaze
EVs: 64 Atk/194 Spd/252 SAtk
Hasty nature (+Spd, -Def)
- Flamethrower
- Close Combat
- Fake Out
- Hidden Power

This lead has some power on it. With fake out, Infernape can break other sashes and kill them off the next turn. HP Electric is for them Gyrados who are stupid enough to try to counter my Infernape :) It may not be a one hit kill, but Gyrados will be weakened enough for a revenge kill at least.

Dragonite @ Choice Band

Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/6 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Outrage
- Fire Punch
- Aqua Tail
- ExtremeSpeed

This is the main power behind this whole team. You'd be surprised at how many pokes Dragonite can 2HKO. Even Hippowdons are killed by a pair of banded Aqua Tails. I've also made it bulky as Dragons have good resists, and I could just easily switch in Snorlax to resist Ice Attacks.

Cresselia @ Leftovers

Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/6 SDef
Bold nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Lunar Dance
- Thunder Wave
- Ice Beam
- Energy Ball

The main purpose of this is to counter dragons, and Swampert with Energy Ball. Then use lunar dance to revive someone like Dragonite or Salamence and start killing while their counters are weakened or gone.

Salamence @ Yache Berry

Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 236 HP/66 Atk/92 Spe/116 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
- Roost
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake

This is my secondary Sweeper, It attempts to Dance up and surprises the opponent who tries an ice attack as I kill them afterwords. Then it can roost back the lost HP later.

Snorlax @ Leftovers

Ability: Thick Fat
EVs: 170 HP/120 Def/220 SDef
Careful nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Curse
- Rest
- Crunch
- Earthquake

This is my special wall, it's the standard curselax. All It does is curse, boosting it's defense while walling in special defense and sweep after a few attack boosts.

Magnezone @ Leftovers

Ability: Magnet Pull
EVs: 40 Atk/216 Spd/254 SAtk
Naive nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power
- Explosion
- Substitute

Magnezone's main purpose it to kill Scizor, and other steel types. This is the standard set, which subs up on helpless steel types and kills them off, and gets a free attack on the switch in. Explosion is awesome too, it can take out things I have trouble with, like Suicune and Snorlax.

Ok, so I really don't see any problems with the team itself, but since Mence got banned, and we all know, or should know, that there is absolutely no replacement for him. Teams that were made when Salamence was around are null now. It would probably be in your best interest to just make a new team. If you would like a "weaker" Mence, you can try this set:

Flygon (M) @ Life Orb
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 80 Atk / 176 Speed / 252 SAtk
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Draco Meteor
- Earthquake
- Fire Blast
- Roost

This may look like the most useless Flygon set you have ever seen, and on it's own, it may look outclassed by the standard Choice Scarf set. This set, on the contrary, is capable of 2HKOing every member on a standard Obi-Stall team. Some say that this set is an inferior MixApe set, but those who do are missing 1 valuable factor; residual damage. Flygon resists Stealth Rock, is immune to Spikes and Toxic Spikes, while at the same time boasting a resistance to Thunderwave, so it cannot be paralyzed. Flygon also resists Sandstorm, so the 6% damage every turn will not play a factor in the sweeping stages.

What really makes this set shine is the surprise factor. When your opponent sees you switching into Flygon, they immediately assume it's the Choice Scarf set, so they switch in either Skarmory, Hippowdon, or Forretress to lay down their respective Entry Hazard. To your opponent's dismay, Forry and Skarmory are easily OHKOd, while Hippowdon risks being 2HKOd by Draco Meteor.

Damage calculations using standard Smogon sets:

- Draco Meteor vs Defensive Zapdos = 66.8% - 79.1% (guaranteed 2HKO, can OHKO after Stealth Rock)
- Draco Meteor vs Gliscor = 84.2% - 99.4% (80% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock)
- Draco Meteor vs Bulky Gyarados = 63.5% - 74.9% (guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock)
- Fire Blast vs Skarmory = 108.4% - 127.5% (guaranteed OHKO)
- Fire Blast vs Forretress = 230.5% - 271.2% (guaranteed OHKO)
- Draco Meteor vs Bulky Rotom = 73% - 86.2% (guaranteed 2HKO)
- Draco meteor vs Scarf Rotom = 92.1% - 108.7% (guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock)
- Draco Meteor vs Hippowdon = 65.7% - 77.4% (92% chance to 2HKO)

I feel that this Pokemon will do your team well because you do look a tad bit Stall weak. Good team and good luck.

Frozen with snow.
