Unresolved...

I got some serious help from trachy on this one. This uses what I call the 'OU NU' Pokemon, but it works.


Rotom-S @ Leftovers

Trait: Levitate

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Air Slash
  • Discharge
  • Hidden Power [Dark]
  • Shadow Ball

A nicely effective Rotom Spin. Air Slash is the nice flinch chance to stop others from sweeping. Discharge is my STAB attack, fits well. Hidden Power Dark is coverage, mainly against dem pesky ghosts. Shadow Ball is my bonus coverage.

I decided to run Leftovers because recovery is just nice. Levitate is all I get, which kinda sucks. EVs get me a nice bulky sweep, since he is able to take 2-5 hits with SDef. Modest Nature is my favorite Nature to run, especially with a Special Sweeper.


Gardevoir @ Leftovers

Trait: Trace

EVs: 96 HP / 160 SAtk / 252 SDef

Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Calm Mind
  • Psychic
  • Thunderbolt
  • Energy Ball

Gardevoir is my frail secondary Special Sweeper. Calm Mind boosts stats. Simple. Psychic is a strong STAB attack to beat up Poison types. Thunderbolt is a popular move in the metagame, for obvious reasons. Energy Ball is coverage.

Leftovers is attempted recovery, probably useless since Gardevoir is taking 3 hits max. Trace is super nice. Especially if a Shedinja sweep tries to pull through me, that's a free Wonder Guard. EVs give a bulk set to give her a longer time of havoc. Calm Nature boosts SDef and gets rid of that useless attack set.


Armaldo @ Focus Sash

Trait: Swift Swim

EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Stone Edge
  • Swords Dance
  • X-Scissor
  • Earthquake

I love this guy. He is such a baws, but frail. Physical Sweeper is really all he can do. Stone Edge makes me laugh, and gets great coverage. Swords Dance is my set-up, with Focus Sash guaranteeing it. X-Scissor is my primary STAB attack, dealing a fair amount of damage. Earthquake, I don't like your Special part instead of Physical, but oh well.

Focus Sash allows me to get a set-up. Really obvious why it is there. I decided to slap Swift Swim on this guy, because if my opponent was running weather, easy 6-0 sweep. EVs give a full out suicide sweeper. Adamant Nature gives me another Atk boost.


Alomomola @ Leftovers

Trait: Regenerator

EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef

Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Toxic
  • Mirror Coat
  • Wish
  • Surf

Alo is used for such a great reason. Toxic provides more overall stall and KO to the team. Mirror Coat counters huge threats. After testing this team on the PO sever, got swept by Cinccino. After making edits, I saw it, and knew I should use it. Wish heals one of my beaten up Pokes, useful for Armaldo. Surf is a Taunt blocker and STAB.

Leftovers. Why not? xD Regenerator is so amazing, especially with the Wish switch. EVs are fairly similar to a Blissey, Alomomola is just Blissey V.4. (Others being Chansey and Audino) Calm Nature increases my Special Defense, adding more fuel to the Wall.


Cinccino @ Life Orb

Trait: Skill Link

EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Tail Slap
  • Rock Blast
  • Bullet Seed
  • Tickle

Cinccino, I hate you so much. Yet, I must use your admirable skills. Tail Slap is a Skill Link + STAB boost. Rock Blast is SL + Coverage. Bullet Seed is SL boost plus my primary counter to Alomomola. Tickle. You would be very surprised how effective this is walls.

Life Orb boosts power, getting OHKOs to almost anything. Skill Link should be ran on every Cinccino for reasons that slap everyone in the face. EVs give Speed and more power. Adamant Nature is sooo amazing for her. Why not run it?


Amoonguss @ Black Sludge

Trait: Regenerator

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef

Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Spore
  • Giga Drain
  • Hidden Power [Ice]
  • Rest

Last but not least, Amoonguss. Gotta luv dat shroom. Spore, if only Amoonguss got Prankster. But still, easy status. Giga Drain is his secondart recovery to stall, third being Lefties. Hidden Power Ice is coverage. After battling trachy's Zweilous, ugh. Knew someone would need this. Rest is my primary recovery. I can take some hits, then switch to Alo and Wish switch it off. Shroom will pretty much always stay at full health.

Leftovers was mentioned above, just being more recovery. Regenerator heals on switches, bringing him up further. EVs are similar to my Alo's seen above. Bold Nature just brings up the stat.


I went through quite a few battle with this team, and serious renovation with trachy. Hope you enjoyed, anyone feel free to give off some advice.

Well,got a couple of things to say.
1) Why no Rapid Spin on Armaldo?That is what makes it useful.
2)I thought Alomomola was better at walling physical attacks.
Everything else.I don't see anything wrong.
I'm still pretty new at Competitive, and here's what I usually see when reading these: Good, good, looks great, maybe I'll use it, um, I don't even know what that IS, I wouldn't do that, I have no idea what that term means, uh....good.
This is why I don't rate teams.
Black Sludge over Leftovers on Amoonguss.
You gave rotom shadow ball for covergae and then put HP Dark to hit ghosts? Wah?
Poke-/, then don't say anything xD
