So it seems i never make Rain Ubers teams and when i do i dont enjoy using them as much as i would using a Sun team but this one is enjoyable and has an uncommon member you may not agree, but it works great.
Appart from that the title is odd but its what showdown keeps telling me lol
The team cant be used on Kuppo but it has been tested a few times since i made it, but the problem Showdown had did put me back a bit hence why im only just posting the Rmt.
It was made a week ago and has had the usual success, and by that i mean it wins 80% of its games.
I know this team could certainly be better and it would be nice to get opinions from you readers, anyway onto my team.
Kyogre @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
- Water Spout
- Ice Beam
Yeh so if you didnt read the title its a Rain team but it plays a vital role in sponging attacks the rest of the team struggles to do.
It also adds a great special force dealing incredible damage if a counter is not quikly found.
Thunder kills off apposing Kyogres, though i dont usually stay in for them as its not an OHKO and leaves me as a sitting duck to be hit by a just as powerfull or in some cases more powerfull Kyogre (Specsogre).
Thunder also deals decent damage to Ho-oH and Lugia though Scald is probably the best option for Ho-oH.
Not much else needed to explain really kyogres very common in Ubers im sure you get the gist by now.
Gyarados @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -Satk)
- Ice Fang
- Stone Edge
OK so before you have a fit becuase its an Ou pokemon dont, this pokemon is great in late game.
A decent attack stat with a powerfull stab attack boosted by rain is an easy clean up.
So ive cleaned up one i gain an attack boost.
If i have no pokemon in there team resisting it i am free to sweep.
Stone edge is pure coverage allong with Ice Fang.
Ice fang is kind of filler it isnt very powerfull even coming from Gyarados and in ubers its laughed on though can be good for Rayquaza.
Thundurus-Therian (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
- Grass Knot
- Volt Switch
- Focus Blast
I came accross Thundurus last week in Ubers and i chuckled to myself it was there purely for Prankster it seemed they were rarely every used for Thunder abuse.
I was supprised when it was made uber.
But when this guy came i was gobsmacked, it was Ou.
145Satk Stab Thunder in a tier where it almost always has infinate accuracy, surely that is a good enough reason?
Sure it has its cons like a Sr weakness but its ability surely overthrows that giving it great synergenical use as well as a decent recovery mean.
Anyway rant over, the sets pretty obvious Grass Knot should be an OHKO on Groudon and Thunder is not easly resisted.
Focus Blast takes Darkrai and Tyranitar and Volt Switch lets me wriggle out sittuations.
Deoxys-Attack @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
- Psycho Boost
I use this pokemon and set so much in Ubers and though it doesnt synergise well, not being able to even resist not effective hits but it can hit hard.
Hit like a truck even, its Attack and Satk is insane all them moves are great in themself.
he cleans up what Gyarados cant with Extreme speed taking almost 50% off all Ubers.
Psycho Boost will almsot Ko anything after rocks and spikes.
Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 48 Atk / 208 SDef
IVs: 0 Spd
- Stealth Rock
- Gyro Ball
- Leech Seed
So i needed a pokemon to take hits from Kyogre, synergise with Kyogre and set up hazards.
Ferrothorn does all 3.
Gyro Ball with the Ivs and Nature will Ko a Deoxys-A after rocks and will do decent damage to anything else though im considering using HFs set of 104Atk and Power Whip which will o KYogre after rocks and it will kill off Groudon better.
SRocks have priority over spikes when layering hazards as I find Ferrothorn and Forretress dont play brilliant roles appart from hazard setter and Zekrom counter :D
Kyurem-Black @ Choice Band
EVs: 200 Atk / 252 Spd / 56 HP
- Ice Beam
- Fusion Bolt
- Dragon Claw
I would run HP fire as i usually do but the rain buffers it and i really want to abuse its attack without Scarf so i replaced Hp Fire for Dragon claw allowing me to switch instead of being locked into an Outrage.
Fusion Bolt OHKOs Kyogre and kos Lugia and Ho-oH after rocks.
Outrage, need i explain the sheer power of it coming from this guy.
Ice Beam is coverage and i think thats it for the Rmt i hope you like it feedback is very welcome, critisisum is not ;)
