PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

No tier Wireless and Wi-Fi team.

0 votes

This is for Wi-Fi/Wireless against a friend of mine.
This is basically my first Competitive team, so please don't be harsh, I'm a beginner. And yes, I know, I could do a ton better than Claydol. I would appreciate it if you could tell me what Natures to use, I'm stuck.

Infernape
Ability: Blaze @ Life Orb
252 Attack 4 SA 252 Sp
Grass Knot
Fire Punch
HP Ice
Close Combat

This guy is trained to hit hard and fast. He can be easily defeated with no EVs in Def or SD, but not before he causes a lot of damage. HP Ice and SA EV training is for Flying and Rock coverage. Damage from Life Orb allows Blaze Ability to activate sooner, but I'm worried the damage will be the death of him.

Staraptor
Ability: Reckless @ Leftovers
252 Attack 4 Spe 252 Defense
Close Combat
Brave Bird
Roost
Double Edge

Reckless....plus Brave Bird(with STAB)....plus Double Edge(with STAB)...plus Close Combat...plus Roost equals...BOSS! I love Staraptor! It should be legendary! LOL, maybe I'll change my username to Staraptorshouldbeuber. :P
Double Edge, Close Combat, and Brave Bird damage is healed off by Roost.

Spiritomb @ Spooky Plate
Ability: Pressure 252 HP 4 SD 252 SA
Will-O-Wisp
Destiny Bond
Shadow Sneak
Hypnosis

Shadow Sneak helps make up for poor Speed.

Claydol
Ability: Levitate @ Leftovers
252 Defense 252 SD 4 SA
Toxic
AncientPower
Rapid Spin(Takes out Stealth Rock)
Earthquake

Maybe Substitute instead of Rapid Spin? Or Psychic?
I think I need an AncientPower replacement.

Heracross
Ability: Moxie @ Leftovers
252 Attack 4 Def 252 Speed
Stone Edge
Megahorn
Pursuit(helps with Psychic Types)
Swords Dance

Somehow I feel like I failed with this guy...
Stone Edge for coverage.

Alomomola
Ability: Regenerator @ Wacan Berry
252 HP 252 Attack 4 Def
Ice Beam
Wish
Dive
Aqua Jet

Mainly for Type coverage.

My spell checker corrected my wrong spelling to doing -__-
Basicly Double team is banned in all battles appart from with friends or where you choose the clause
And i know this is to be used against a friend but no point making a whole team which you cant use after that battle.
Also Double team is banned for its unfairness i guess you could say, i would drop the double teams to make a fair match
Sigh. Fine. I'll edit and make it a regular team.
Staraptor is walled by Steel types, replace Quick Attack with Close Combat.
OK. I'll edit. (again)

Alright, your team is pretty good, but it does need improvements, so here they are.

Infernape

Mixednape is okay, but this team needs more special so go with this set. Its a fully special set and has a few better moves on it.

Infernape (M) @ Focus Sash / Life Orb
Trait: Blaze
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Fire Blast / Overheat
- Focus Blast /
- Vacuum Wave / U-Turn
- Hidden Power [Grass]


Staraptor

Your set is okay, but it isn't using Staraptor's potential, so go with this. Roost is okay with Staraptor, but its most likely going to get KO'd if it gets hit by something anyway.

Staraptor (F) @ Choice Band / Choice Scarf
Trait: Reckless
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- U-turn
- Close Combat
- Brave Bird
- Return / Double Edge


Spirtomb

Spirtomb is good, but I ALWAYS prefer Sableye, but you can still used Spirtomb, so I'll give you a good set for both.

Sableye (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP / 88 Def / 168 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp
- Substitute
- Recover

OR

Spiritomb (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 108 Def / 36 SAtk / 112 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Ominous Wind
- Substitute
- Hidden Power [Fighting]
- Pain Split


Claydol

Although Claydol is good, Forretress outclasses it by quite a bit, because it call learn Toxic Spikes AND Spikes, which is a good combo AND has Rapid Spin.

Forretress (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Spikes
- Toxic Spikes
- Earthquake
- Rapid Spin


Heracross

Heracross is good, but you already have a Fighting type, so go for Porygon-Z.

WARNING THIS IS A VERY RISKY SET, ONLY USE HYPER BEAM WHEN YOU KNOW YOU CAN TAKE WHATEVER HIT THAT IS USED WHEN YOU ARE RECHARGING. So if your to scared to use Hyper Beam, use Tri Attack and Choice Specs.

Porygon-Z @ Normal Gem / Choice Specs
Trait: Adaptability
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Hyper Beam / Tri Attack
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
- Psychic


Alomomola

Most of the team has moves that recover health, so Alomomola isn't really needed, so go with Swampert.

Swampert (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 252 HP / 68 Atk / 188 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Ice Punch
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Waterfall


I hope I helped you!
