PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

My first UU team. Doing okay.

1 vote

Hi, so, you probably know me. Yup, i'm Poke/, the epic. :P
So, I decided to expand my teirs and try out UU, and was delighted to find that many of my favorite Pokemon are in the UU teir. Whoop! I restrained myself from picking only favorites, and the outcome was this awesome team. It's done pretty well, but the only people I've battled with it openly admit that they aren't exactly UU pros, so I want some UU professionals to tell me what they think. Welcome to my first UU RMT, and here's the team!!

I would appreciate it if people would edit sprites into this.

Noah's Ark(Arcanine)(Shiny)
@ Expert Belt
Ability: Intimidate
4 Spe, 252 Att, 252 HP Jolly Nature
Ability: Intimidate
Extremespeed
Flare Blitz
Close Combat
Wild Charge

I honestly don't think this set need explaining. Fairly speedy Attacker. Is usually the one I send out first.
Enough said?

Gurgle(Blastoise)
@ Cell Battery
Ability: Torrent
252 Def, 16 HP, 240 Att Relaxed Nature
Aqua Jet
Rapid Spin
Avalanche
Dragon Tail

Plays the role of a Rapid Spinner, and can also annoy w/ Dragon Tail. Avalanche takes care of enemy Flygon, along with Dragon Tail. Aqua Jet adds priority to make up for low Speed. Makes a great wall, has worked well to suit this otherwise-low-on-defense team.

UF/MF (Flygon)
@ Dragon Gem
252 Spe, 4 HP, 252 Att Jolly Nature
Ability: Levitate
Earthquake
Fire Punch
Outrage
U-Turn

Used to have him scarfed. Hated it with this set. Never again. Dragon Gem+STAB on Outrage is what I like on this Flygon.
Rest of set doesn't really require explaining. Right? Speedy attacker/sweeper.

Raso (Roserade)
@ Coba Berry
252 Spe, 148 SpeD, 108 SpeA Hasty Nature
Ability: Poison Point(Gotta love dat Poison.)
Sludge Bomb
Giga Drain
Sleep Power
Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy makes up for lack of Natural Cure Ability, and supports the entire team.
Rest is obvious, Sleep Power 'em, Giga drain 'em, and Sludge Bomb 'em for even more Poison chances. Coba Berry had not been needed, replacement suggestions welcome.

Hals (Cofagrigus)
@ Leftovers
252 Def, 100 SpeA, 156 SpeD Calm Nature
Ability: Mummy
Trick Room
Shadow Ball
Wil-O-Wisp
Haze

I know what you're thinking. Trick Room on a speedy team? No, no, No. Well, guess what news I have for you? It has helped me. A lot. When Raso and his Aromatherapy are down, a bunch of the team are Paralyzed(The team gets Thunder Waved a lot), and It all rides on Hals and Buffetlover, Trick Room is a LIFE-SAVER. The situation I just described has happened many times before, and so, I'm not getting rid of Trick Room unless my life depends on it.
The rest of the set is Hazer/Wil-O-Wisp, and Shadow Ball is that nice Ghostly move. With STAB.

Buffetlover (Snorlax) (Shiny)
@ Lansat Berry
Ability: Thick Fat
252 HP, 252 Att, 4 SpeD Adamant Nature
Body Slam
Crunch
Brick Break
Whirlwind

I haven't had as much use for Brick Break than I thought I would, and so a replacement would be okay, I guess, but only a really good replacement. Body Slam is that Normal-Type STAB Move, and Crunch hits Ghost Types. Maybe I should run Toxic on him? I got to think about that.
Whirlwind gets rid of Pokès I would rather not take on with him, and has been surprisingly useful, for which I am happy.

i see no ZOROARK!
But seriously, good team. +1
I might rate it if I find time later.
@ both Thanks. Seems like I finally found my calling. (Teir-wise)
@ CZ As promised, I made a team with Zoroark, which will go on the RMT someday.
Actually, yeah I'm going to rate it later. :)
Yay! Thank you!
BTW, just battled someone, did all right for a while, but after Sharpedo weakened me a bit I fell at the mercy of Eviolite Dusclops and Chandulure.

Best answer

Arcanine
I honestly have to say that I would rather prefer the use a Choice Band or Scarf. The Band power almost equals that of Expert Belt. And with Band, Extremespeed can do quite some damage. Even if you have Scarf you can surprise the opponent with your speed. Also, you can try Life Orb with Morning Sun as another option.
I recommend this EV spread: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe.

Blastoise
Blastoise is good, I don't have many suggestions for it. But using Avalanche and Aqua Jet won't get you far. Using Scald and Toxic, you can stall the opponent way easier. But if you don't like double hazards, then use Surf or something, but I would really recommend Scald. Oh, and use Lefties.

Flygon

OK, Dragon Gem is new, but Choice Band is good too. Dragon Gem only lasts one turn, while being Choiced let's you KO faster. But Scarf isn't bad AT ALL. Sharpedo's will be surprised, along with some other Pokemon. But if you don't like it, no biggie.

Roserade
Other than suggesting Toxic Spikes and/or Spikes, I have no suggestions for this. Oh, and try Smogon's bulky EV spread: 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 SpD

Confarigus
Except to suggest putting Substitute on this guy, it's also good :)

Snorlax
Yeah, Brick Break isn't THE best idea. I would have Curse, to boost your attack and defense. Also, instead of Whilrwind, maybe put Rest somewhere in there? YOu should try adding Sleep Talk but it isn't super important. Lefties.
Try this EV spread: 208 HP / 124 Def / 176 SpD


Ok, the main thing for Eviolite Dusclops is to use Taunt. After Taunt, Dusclops is completely useless. The best counter I've found is Sableye.

Sableye @ Leftovers
Trait: Pranskster
EVs: 252 HP / 48 Def / 208 SpD
Bold Nature: (+Def, -Atk)
- Will-O-wisp
- Taunt
- Recover
- Night Shade

Chandelure's greatest threat, is Sharpedo, IMO. Sharpedo completely outspeeds Chandelure, except for maybe a Scarfed one.

Sharpedo @ Life Orb/Choice Band
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA) / Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)
- Protect/Aqua Jet (Depends on Life Orb or Band)
- Waterfall
- Crunch
- Eathquake

I have always used Life Orb Sharpedo, so I'm not sure how Band will go. But with Orb, Sharpedo either KO's Chandelure, or greatly weakens it. I bet Banded Waterfall does a lot of damage, too.


So those are your 2 counters for Dusclops and Chandy, wether or not you use them is up to you. As for replacing, I would replace either Arcanine or Snorlax, but that's just my personal opinion.


There's my answer, and I hope you are successful with your team! :)
