Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is this a good Gen V team made of only Gen III Pokemon?

Breloom: Killer Technician
Item: Lum Berry
Ability: Technician
Mach Punch, Bullet Seed, Spore, Swords Dance
Ah Breloom. One of the best Pokemon in the game just got even better. Mach Punch gives it a powerful priority attack, and Bullet Seed has the potential to do incredible damage, which Substitute doesn't protect you from. Spore has always been incredible, and allows for set-up with Swords Dance.

Dusclops: The Wall
Item: Evolution Stone
Ability: Pressure
Night Shade, Will-o-wisp, Pain Split, Confuse Ray
Night Shade is there because Dusclops will have its EVs going into its defensive stats. Will-o-wisp damages the foe while increasing its survivability. Pain Split damages the foe and also heals Dusclops. Confuse Ray is for increased Walling+damaging.

Gorebyss: The Baton Passer
Item: White Herb
Ability: Swift Swim
Shell Break, Substitute, Baton Pass, Surf
While this team might not have Politoed, I have a feeling that Rain will be common enough for Gorebyss to still prove useful. It can then easily pass off Shell Break and possibly Substitute, meaning I would then have a very powerful Pokemon, think Salamence with a mega boost in important stats for it. Surf is there just because.

Glalie: ???
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Inconsistent
Explosion, Ice Shard, Spikes, Earthquake
Glalie fits multiple roles, revenge killer, Exploder, Entry Hazards, you name it. Plus it has type coverage with Earthquake. Glalie with Inconsistent is considered so powerful as to make Smogon ban it. On second thought, it doesn't take much to scare Smogon.

Metagross: Physical Menace
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Clear Body
Meteor Mash, Pursuit, Earthquake, Explosion
Same as last Generation, although the absence of Thunderpunch has driven me to use Pursuit instead.

Salamence: The Killer Dragon
Item: Lum Berry
Ability: Intimidate
Dragon Claw, Stone Edge, Hydro Pump, Fire Blast
Salamence is the ideal recipient for a Shell Break boost. With an Attack, Special Attack, and Speed boost, Salamence gets all it needs. Hydro Pump will get a benefit from Rain Dance and Fire Blast from Sunny Day.

Where is blazekin his new ability is amazing
I don't like having Pokemon of the same type with same weaknesses. I put Breloom on my team because it is freakin' awesome. Blaziken and Breloom are now about equal. So I just chose Breloom.

Grrrrr.............................. Grrrrrrrr....................... RAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! WHERE IS SWAMPERT!!!???
Seriously Trachy, One of Swamperts Biggest Weaknesses was exploders. But Now, with Damp, He resists That. And HE BENIFETS FROM RAIN! AND THE RAIN MAKES BOILING WATER Powerful Enough to, with Its Chance to burn, be as good as Waterfall! Also, Why Is Your Team SO Physical! Youre only special attacks are on Slamence and Gorybess..... Plus, as SF said, Blaziken should be There As Well! Speed Boost..... Sharpedo gets Speed Boost As Well, with his base 120 ATtack Stat, and Benifets From Rain, so hed be a good option too. But I Guess, if you don't like these suggestions, you do have a pretty good team.

Trust me, Explosion is a threat to nobody now...

Great team as always Trachy but I do think that blazekin should be in there becuase of speed boost allowing it to use S-dance instead of agility. Salamences attacks have low acc. I would replace fire blast with flamethrower becuase against an Ice type you can not take any chances. And what is shell break I looked at gorebyss' profile the only thing that looks like that is shell smash and that raises speed and lowers defense it has nothing to do with attack and S.attack

Shell Break increases Attack, Sp Attack, and Speed by two stages but lowers Defense and Sp Def by one stage. White Herb stops this.
