PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

I think I'll post a UU team, and see what happens?

OK, so a while back I posted a NU team, and it ended up improving a lot. Hopefully the same will happen with my UU team.


Azumarill
MegaMouse (Azumarill) @ Leftovers
Trait: Huge Power
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Aqua Jet
- Ice Punch
- Superpower
- Belly Drum

Yah, Tis' Azumarril. This is a showdown team since for some reason on PO you can't have Belly Drum + Aqua Jet. Whatever. Anyway, you've probably seen this before, I hope you think it looks good on this guy. I've actually not used this guy before, because I choose a Cursing Swampert w/STAB EQ instead. Tell me what you think.


Yanmega
DragonFly (Yanmega) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Speed Boost
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 SAtk / 200 Spd / 4 SDef / 52 HP
Modest Nature
- Air Slash
- Bug Buzz
- Protect
- HP ice

Alright, this is actually going to be my first speed-boost Pokemon that I've used in UU. I gave him a wee-tad bit o' bulk because I can afford to, with speed boost and all. He's been really annoying against my team, so I figure maybe he'll be really annoying against your team too. :3 -- HP ice takes out the Flygons.


Machamp
Steroids (Machamp) @ Leftovers
Trait: No Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
- DynamicPunch
- Bulk Up
- Stone Edge
- Bullet Punch

Because I have terrible luck with accuracy, I love Machamp. I no longer have to cross my fingers when using stone edge, which I miss about 1 in 2 times with. After a couple of bulk ups, I can get some pretty good stuff done with Bullet Punch.


Porygon2
Can'tTouchDis (Porygon2) @ Eviolite
Trait: Download
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 Def
Modest Nature
- Ice Beam
- Discharge
- Tri Attack
- Recover

Alright, I must say I really like this guy's Defense. I've seen him before in battle, and I think he'll do me good as long as I get lucky with discharge and Paralyze every once in a while.


Weavile
Lil'Demon (Weavile) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Ice Shard
- Ice Punch
- Night Slash
- Swords Dance

Alright, this is another one of my back-up plans for Scarfed Flygon and Krookodile. With the sash, he'll be able to get up a Swords Dance, and OHKO Flygon and Krookodile with Ice Shard. He also can hit Yanmega and other speed demons with Ice Shard. He should be able to do some good damage overall with one or two sword dances up.


Bronzong
Antique (Bronzong) @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 0 Spd
- Stealth Rock
- Gyro Ball
- Earthquake
- Toxic

Alright, finally my bronzong. He takes earthquakes like nothing because, well, he has levitate, and can stomach an outrage from a d-dancing Kingdra. I was pondering whether to take out EQ and give him explosion, but then I realized that I'd be worth nothing against the steel types.


Please rate the team.

I like this team.
:D                           that's good news.
Sash is actually useless without a Spinner.
I would run Non invested speed in bronzong with impish 31 ivs because gyro ball is still powerfull but if you dont slowbro will ko with flamethrower then you only have one Pokemon resisting it to switch in for (the mouse) but that is frail and after hazards and possible previous damage...
You have a fire weakness maybe swap machamp for Hariyama as hary gets thick fat as well as a very similar move pool and decent bulk.
Appart from that decent team
I like how it seems like you built this team to counter all the UU teams I used to battle you with ;]
Weavile is too frail to use Swords Dance consistently. Focus Sash and Ice Shard guarantees a 2HKO against Flygon anyway, unless EHs break the Sash. drop Dance for another Coverage move. i used and abuse Weavile ob pretty much every team i use. trust me.

Best answer

Most of it looks good, but I have a few suggestions.

Azumarill loss good.

Yanmega looms good.

Machamp @ Leftovers
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
Trait: No Guard
252 Atk/ 252 HP/ 4 SDef
- Dynamic Punch
- Stone Edge
- Payback
- Substitute

No Guard fixes Stone Edge and D Punchs shaky accuracy. Substitute allows you to fire away without fear of Burns and Payback beats up faster Psychic types assuming your Sub is still up. if a base power 100 Payback doesn't take em down, switch Weavile in and abuse it.

Porygon 2 looks good. Eviolite makes good = killer.

Weavile @ Focus Sash
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -Def)
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
- Ice Punch
- Night Slash/Pursuit
- Brick Break/Low Kick
- Ice Shard

i use this set with Pursuit and Low Kick. Obviously Ice Punch and Shard are STABs with good power or priority. Night Slash is if you like power, but Pursuit traps troublesome Ghost Types for a 2HKO or if Rocks are in play OHKO. it also is good for a sneaky little trick... Machamp is on a rampage so they switch, out comes the Reuniclus and...... Weavile switches in and Psychic is useless. then either A. Reuniclus stays in and Pursuit hits hard, then Focus Blast OHKO Weavile...except for Focus Sash! Another Pursuits kills the pesky Psychic. or B. Reuniclus tries to switch out, and a STAB 80 BP super effective Pursuit rapes it on the switch. Brick Break is used to Break down Dual Screeners, and hurts Steel types and Rock types. Low Kick is based off of Weight but there are tons of heavy steel types that won't like Low Kick with a x2 factor.

Bronzong looks good.

my last thing is you may want Rapid Spin support to make Focus Sash worth using and just having a Spinner is good practice in general.

that's all.

Thanks for answering, actually I found weavile does get some time to get up Sword Dances with a sash, especially if I get to force something out. Reuniclus is OU.... soooooo :\

Thanks for the answer! I think I'll take your sub-Machamp advice.
Welcome. Reuniclus IS OU my bad. but i recommend NOT running a swords dance set on Weavile unless you have a spinner to clear entries. otherwise Sash breaks, you dance get get hit, Weavile dies. easy free KO. if you can MAKE the time to set it up, works fine. but my set is easier.
Also SubChamp works great as an attacking lead. 100% accurate STAB fighting type move with guaranteed confusion is a scary thing to face, especially when its coming from behind a Substitute
