PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

RU, Dual Type Team, Ghost and Dark.

0 votes

So I decided to make a Pokemon team of the RU tier, that's Mono-Ghost and Mono-Dark! I thought it would be fun to make a team like this. A cool thing about Mono-Ghost is that they're immune to Rapid Spin, but I didn't know where to fit in a ghost or dark type Stealth Rock user, so if someone could find me one I will love you forever as a friend. Anyway this team is designed because I wanted to try out something different than what I normally do. Anyway, enjoy the team!

                                   Lead

enter image description here
Rotom @ Life Orb
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
Calm Nature
- Hidden Power [Fighting]
- Volt Switch
- Shadow Ball
- Will-O-Wisp

When I made this Rotom as lead, I wanted to try out something different other than the SubSplit set. I had never seen this moveset before, ever. So I decided to try it out. Here's how it works. Hidden Power Fighting is for trying to take care of dem dark types. Rotom's Special Attack stat and EVs also help with this. Shadow Ball is for STAB and in case I'm trapped in battle (somehow) by Mean Look or something. If these circumstances are NOT present, I go along and use Will-O-Wisp and burn the opponent. When that's over, I use Volt Switch and switch to either Dusknoir or Absol. Depends. Volt Switch is also great STAB.

Absol @ Life Orb
Trait: Super Luck
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Jolly Nature
- Megahorn
- Night Slash
- Sucker Punch
- Superpower

I LOVE using Absol on my teams! I'm so glad it's in the RU tier <3. Anyway this set is a basic Sweeper set. Life Orb, EVs and all. It's all standard.

                                Tank

enter image description here
Dusknoir (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SDef / 4 Atk
Impish Nature
- Earthquake
- Shadow Sneak
- Body Slam
- Brick Break

Using him for the first time. I decided to go and make him a tank. As soon as he switches out from Rotom, he starts tanking. Earthquake is strong :3. Shadow Sneak is for physical STAB and for Priority. Body Slam is for the chance of paralyzing my opponent, so I added it in and will try to use it whenever the chance rears it's head in. Brick Break is for Dark Pokemon coverage.

                           ResTalk Spiritomb

enter image description here
Spiritomb @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Modest Nature
- Rest
- Sleep Talk
- Dark Pulse
- Shadow Ball

Ah, Spiritomb, the line between Ghost and Dark. Running a ResTalk set? I don't know if this has been used before, or if it's horrible and I'm dumb enough to use it, but meh. Rest and Sleep Talk are for the basic ResTalk procedure. Dark Pulse and Shadow Ball are Special STAB.

                                 Double Dance

enter image description here
Crawdaunt @ Leftovers
Trait: Adaptability
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Crunch
- Dragon Dance
- Swords Dance
- Waterfall

Here I'm running a double dance set with Dragon Dance and Swords Dance raising my attack a LOT. Crunch is an awesome STAB move. Waterfall is my last move. It has decent power, it also has a chance to make the opponent flinch.

                                  Staller

enter image description here
Mandibuzz (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Big Pecks
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SDef / 4 HP
Careful Nature
- Roost
- Taunt
- Toxic
- Brave Bird

I'm stalling with Mandibuzz. Firstly, I use Taunt to stahp any bad moves like Will-O-Wisp from coming my way. Then I use Toxic if I be versing a powerful tank, wall or another staller to knock away their HP. I'll use Brave Bird to inflict damage and be rid of danger from the opponent using Taunt. Since Brave Bird has recoil, and the opponent will only be able to damage me thanks to taunt, I added in Roost for healing.

Ok, I have some suggestions. I always preferred Mixed Absol, so Fire Blast > Megahorn to hit Escavalier. For Spiritomb, I suggest you replace either Shadow Ball or Dark Pulse (They cover the exact same stuff, I recommend replacing Shadow Ball) for Calm Mind. If you go for CM, go with Bold Nature and 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef.
Thanks JCM!!
No problem.
Double dance is useless. Go with dragon dance so you can get some speed. You already have amazing power.
you can not have a mono ghost and mono dark type team without using only spiritomb and sableye as the prefix mono means one.
you know the fact that you are using both mono dark and mono ghost means its not monotype anymore
its like....dualtype
Muhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
ShinyFroakie, Sableye is not Ru, it's UU.
I've searched and found one pokemon that can use Stealth Rock in RU and is a Ghost-type! Golurk! He is a good pokemon. Can setup Rocks and deal a good damage. I've found a spiker too... Cacturne. I don't know if he is good... Just found it.
Oh... Crunch dun have a chance to flinch luls.
Thanks RTD.
IM NOT ABOUT TIERS JUST EXPLAINING THE CONCEPT OF MONO TEAMS
