So yeah I am finally updating this team 3 months later because almost everyone has now seen this team and its by far the best team I have ever made. It is yet to loose to anyone on the site, has won two out of two tournaments on kupo, all Ubers tournaments I have entered on our server and best of all even beat Hex. It is easily my favorite team also and has lost in total 9 battles since mid December when I decided to build it. It checks many threats and is an all round solid team that helped me peak high numerous times on the Showdown ladder in the 3 weeks period that I used it. I have never pulled off so many 6-0ls with any team. Even beat 2 people 6-0 in one Kupo tourney to win it (gg Ben).
But yeah a long time has passed now and I felt like this rmt needed updating seen as though everyone else seems to be updating their successful teams recently. I have not kept track of this teams battles but I know I have had at least 150 battles over the 3 month period which isn't bad at all for 9 losses. Anyway I love this team and I would suggest in future people try some of these sets as they work wonders especially Sleep Talk Terrakion.
Suggestions are very welcome
Levitate | Timid | 52 HP / 204 SAtk / 252 Spd
Thunder | Dragon Pulse | Recover | Calm Mind
With Soul Dew it has a nasty 50% boost in both SAtk and SDef which is insane when you take into account its already solid special stats. Calm Mind effectivly brings both its stats to 200% allowing it to be 2-3hkod by a Scarf Palkias Special Rend. Thunder and Dragon Pulse hit most of the Ubers meta incredibly nicely and can catch Pokemon like Dialga off guard in the early stages on the battle trying to set up while it expects Latias to be switched. Its best counters are Bulky Pokemon like Arceus and Excadril who are both easily checked by Ferro and Gliscor.
Drizzle | Modest | 240 HP / 252 SAtk / 16 Spd
Water Spout | Thunder | Surf | Ice Beam
I never liked Scarfogre it just never hit Ferro hard enough which isn't good so I went for the common choice of Specsogre which well at full HP OHKOs almost everything. Any good Ubers player will usually run EVs in speed to ensure your not screwed over by Pokemon like Ho-oh and Excadril because having full Hp is always a plus. Surf is being used over Hydro Pump because it is still reliable power under Specs and Rain.
Levitate | Timid | 252 SAtk / 8 SDef / 248 Spd
Grass Knot | Draco Meteor | Dragon Pulse | Thunder
Thanks to Soul Dew Latios has a pretty solid 538 SAtk. This means everything is getting hit hard here. Grass Knot and Thunder may be an odd choice but Grass Knot will primarily hit your Kyogre/Groudon and then Thunder has very nice neutral coverage with a nice 120 BP and 30% para chance which can be useful on Pokemon like Ferro, making it less of a problem. Draco will hit everything hard for nice damage and allows me to 2hko Support Dialga on the switch in.
Poison Heal | Jolly | 252 HP / 40 Def / 216 Spd
Protect | Toxic | Substitute | Earthquake
Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol Trol
In all seriousness though Gliscor is a very nice member of the team who can force switches and stall out many Pokemon such as Lugia thanks to Toxic, and its Toxic immunity. Its typing is nice and he is a nice counter to Arceus if I get an early Toxic up. It deals with Pokemon like Zekrom and Dialga very nicely. Most Gliscors in Ou and allot in Ubers run almost max Def though either way its extremely bulky and the speed is needed as this Pokemon/Set works very similarly to Whimsicott. Though the added bulky is very nice.
Iron Barbs | Sassy | 252 HP / 48 Atk / 208 SDef
Power Whip | Leech Seed | Spikes | Stealth Rock
Life is so much easier for Latios/Gliscor/Terrakion with hazards. Ferro also provides the role of a much needed Special wall. It is great for setting up on most of the meta. It has nice synergy with the team and can dent teams/even win battles for me. Apart from that I guess this set is standard.
Justified | Jolly | 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Close Combat | X-Scissor | Sleep Talk | Stone Edge
Dark Void this. So In Ou I was sick and tired of constantly running into Breloom so I started running Sleep Talk on Kyurem-B. So when I was building this team I needed a Pokemon that could counter Arceus and Darkrai easily. So Scarf STalk Kyurem-B came to mind. But I figured that it would be walled by Arceus Steel which otherwise almost walls my team. So I had the idea of Terrakion. I personally thought it was indigenous and yet have seen not many users use it. The only person on the site I have seen use it is Jcm, though that said not everyone can fit Terrakion in their team. So The moveset is using Secret Sword over Earthquake for three reasons. First I never use Equake and doesn't really hit much more than what the rest of my moves do. It ensures when Asleep that I have a better chance of using a SE move then finally because Spamming CC to victory can end up badly when paired with Arceus.
The best thing is the unpredictability of this set as almost no one uses it, I can assume some of the pros probably do though :P or should at least. Darkrai will always try set up which is nice.
So yeah thanks for reading, I hope you like and feel free to suggest suggestions for my team which is 50% Ou :P or 83% if we are not counting in [email protected] twins Soul Dew.
@MrK you owe me $100 :P
