I have been dying to use Salamance in an Ubers Team for what feels like years but I founf it a hard struggle building a team around a Salamance core.
Salamance is great in Ou and in Ubers but is very rarely seen in both despite its brilliant stats and Movepool.
I think the Ou problem is that Dragonite simply outclasses it on most teams and in Ubers there are many noobs that will stick to the ubers only.
Though when it is used it normally is paired with Rayquaza to make up an offencive core, though there typing isnt exactly ideal for covering eachover the 2 can cause massive damage.
I had one small problem and that was I couldnt fit both into my teams so I had to ditch it.
Finally after days of scrapping previous teams ive finally managed to make a team with mence in.
Kyurem-B @ Choice Band
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Fusion Bolt
- Ice Beam
- Hidden Power [Fire]
Ok so Zekrom is pretty beast I'm not going to lie and I did have many great times using it but Kyurem-B had 170 base Atk!
That is monsterous, imagine taking an Outrage from this Pokemon, you just cant.
Though no stab Fusion Bolt and no access to Bolt Strike is a letdown it means it cant Ohko Kyogre with Scarf.
Thankfully 95 base speed does make up for that a bit and means Choice band is a very viable option and now ohkos 4Hp scarfogre and Fusion Bolt hits specsOrge very hard for about 90% damage.
It also has a very easy to abuse SAtk, Ice beam is decent coverage and stab, Hp fire is just purely to laugh at Ferrothorn and Forretress switch ins.
Kyogre @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 128 Def / 112 SDef / 16 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
I used a very similar set many many months ago and it was very successful though the ev spread was broken.
now it is fixed and may seem odd but alows me to take 3 outrages from Kyurem-B, 3 Fusion Bolts from Kyurem-B, a very respectable 93.5% chance of suviving a Jolly scarfed 252Atk Bolt Strike from Zekrom, 3 Thunders from Scarfogre, 3 Earthquakes from max atk groudon need I go on.
The purpose of the set is to set up a couple of calm minds, simple enough.
after 1-2 a Substitute is very hard to take down then a scald boosted by rain and Stab at +2 is something to worry about.
Salamence @ Muscle Band
EVs:4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
Here it is, 100 speed matches Palkias and is very respectable and after a dd its very hard to outspeed.
Moxie... need I explain the power of a +1 outrage from this Pokemon? yes it could be better but it is very able of cleaning up almost any Pokemon raising its Atk once more then again and again.
Earthquake hits Dialga and Excadrill and Crunch is mainly filler but will hit the psychic types.
Forretress @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def
- Rapid Spin
- Stealth Rock
- Volt Switch
Standard forretress set giving my team great support in needed spinning and hazard support.
Arceus-Steel @ Iron Plate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+spd, -SAtk)
- Iron Head
- Swords Dance
I cant remember the last time I used an extreme killer but here we go.
Good coverage with Earthquake and powerfull stab in Iron Head.
I must seem like I'm rushing the Rmt at this point :D
Basicly Arcues is here to provide Priority as well as another cusion for my dragon types.
Deoxys-A @ Life Orb
EVs: 156 Atk / 100 SAtk / 252 Spd
Mild Nature (+SAtk, -Def)
- Psycho Boost
Changed from my usual set to suit give some more support to my special offence which isnt much but not as needed.
Extreme speed will finish a match if used correctly and if hazards are up it can even ko Pokemon like Shaymin-s.
Thunder is a 75% chance to ko Specsorge but thats good enough for me it alows me to add more evs to my needed atk Stat.
Psycho Boost is an Ohko on Groudon so I'm guessing it is on allot of other Pokemon :D
Superpower is general coverage for Pokemon like Darkrai and Arceus switch ins.
Sorry if it looks rushed it was... Could someone possibly edit in sprites please, that would be great thanks.
