Well, Rain has been on the rise, so i thought, let me be dumb and try Sand!
Well, here ya go folks! so far, this team is 15-2, and hasn't caused problems yet.
Enjoy the team!

Tyranitar @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 Atk
Quiet Nature
- Substitute
- Fire Blast
- Focus Punch
- Pursuit

Simply love this guy. Weather, amazing defenses, godly attack stat with a workable movepool in it's decent SAtk stat is just perfect for me. Simple TyraniBoah set. HP EV's at max so any Seismic tossers or Night Shaders can't break my Substitute in one hit. Fire Blast is for Ferrothorn's, Scizor's, and Forretresses, or any Steel type, which i simply hate being used against me :P. Focus Punch is perfect against the Blob(yolo's :D) i see lurking around, and help against opposing Tyranitar's. Also the Main reason why i am using Substitute. Pursuit is for the Psychic Types that carry Focus blast, and for the Ghosts, who also have it as well. Also works to KO when people thing they can switch out :).

Jellicent @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: EVs: 96 Def / 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 156 SDef
Bold Nature
- Toxic
- Scald
- Recover
- Shadow Ball/Night Shade

This sir, Jellicent, is a baws. Im loving the fact that people can set up on Jellicent and not expect a status mov, Toxic in this case. Scald is in case of the Steel types, who are immune to Toxic, and think they are safe. Recover is for... Recover-y :P. Shadow Ball is STAB, plus my best thing against Grass types and Dragons, therefore making me debate if i want Shadow Ball or Night Shade

Garchomp @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Rough Skin
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Outrage
- Fire Fang

Baws. All i have to say about him. Swords Dance is for the sweep. Earthquake is Stab, plus my 2nd option to water pokemons if i don't feel like locking myself into Outrage. That being said, Outrage is STAB + rape at +2 or +3. Fire Fang is my coverage against Steel types and Ice Types.

Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 Atk
Impish Nature
- Leech Seed
- Power Whip
- Stealth Rock
- Thunder Wave

Team support. That's all he is. Leech Seed is reliable healing +trollz against an opponent. Power Whip is so i don't become Taunt Bait/Magic Bounce Bait. Stealth Rock is my Hazards and helps when i fight against opposing Multiscale Dragonites. Thunder Wave help me against Scarfers and generally just fast pokemons so other can come in for the kill.

Landorus (M) @ Life Orb
enter image description here
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Modest Nature
- Rock Polish
- Focus Blast
- Earth Power
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Well, my Special little killer. Rock Polish is to outspeed anything in my way. Focus Blast is Coverage and helps against Ice, Ferro, and sometimes agianst Hydreigon, if i don't want to lose 10% HP. Earth Power is STAB and help vs Fire types and Electrics that oppose me. HP Ice is for the Dragons/Flying/Grass types that are seen in OU. And i simply just love (wait, what?) this guy.

Espeon @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Magic Bounce
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Modest Nature
- Wish
- Psyshock
- Shadow Ball
- Hidden Power [Grass]

Well, i didn't want a Spinner, as most of them would ruin the synergy between my team mates, and the others aren't to appealing to me. So, i thought, Espeon. No need for a Spinner if you got nothing to spin (Horrible LeBoss logic btw). Wish is for Espeon to be nice, fat (lolwut), and healthy. Psyshock is STAB and a way to deform the fat Blob's. Shadow Ball is good against Reuniclus. To be honest, HP Grass is just a filler, and only use it for the ever-so-not-seen-by-LeBoss Gastrodons.


That's it folks! And remember, when in doubt, just use a Sand team... or, when you are not in doubt, sand teams still work. :P

*Note to self... Tyranitar > Hippodown :P

Lol, jk :)
