PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

It's an OU team. Using fairly common OU Pokemon.

The team honestly sucks when facing a person for the second time. The first time I face a person with this team it turns out really well. I've won a few Showdown little tournament things with this, as well as the odd battle here and there. It was even good when Showdown failed to import Technician on Scizor, so half the time this team was dominating with a Swarm Scizor. Also a Hardy Rotom-W. Yeah, hate Showdown importing, I will say that. Seems pretty buggy, but oh well. Beta is beta. Anyways, you should feel kinda embarressed to have lost to this team, because it was incredibly flawed until recently. I don't feel like adding pics now, so yeah, you might be bored by the presentation. Enjoy!

IWillShowYoutheWorld (Landorus) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Earth Power
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Substitute

Well, it's Landorus on a team with Tyranitar. That might trick a few people. So yeah, it's actually the awesome Special Landorus, which I say is one of the best Pokemon in the OU metagame. Thing just kills you with coverage. I hate ROck Polish late-game sweeping, mainly because I just suck at it. Sub works well on the many switches this thing causes. Eases prediction also.

Shoggoth (Tyranitar) (F) @ Chople Berry
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Atk / 252 SDef
Sassy Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Fire Blast
- Pursuit
- Stone Edge

A bit basic Tyranitar. Use Stone Edge over Crunch because I prefer the additional coverage. Chople Berry is fun. Usually I can get two hits in against a Fighting type attack (because Focus Miss does exactly that, misses. So two hits on you when you do little damage and then you miss.) Trapper and Rock setter, so it has that support role mainly. This is not a Sand team.

ZerglingsgetWingsNow (Scizor) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 248 HP / 40 Atk / 216 SDef / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Bullet Punch
- Bug Bite
- Roost
- Swords Dance

You can guess how useless this guy was when I didn't have Technician. Still the worst member of my team. It honestly does nothing besides Revenge Kill. Feel free to suggest a better Pokemon because I hate Scizor. So overused and does not help me whatsoever.

PufftheMagicDragon (Latios) (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Draco Meteor
- Surf
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Psyshock

God I love Latios. This thing just destroys everything in its path. And the type coverage it gets is amazing. I think I end up using Latios on all my serious OU teams. The thing is good. Very good. It always does more damage than stuff like Salamence or Garchomp. I think that typing helps with that. Love this guy.

BullShifters (Terrakion) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Justified
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
- X-Scissor
- Sacred Sword

I go by the rule of having at least one Scarfer on my team. And this thing is a beast. We all know that. Use Sacred Sword in case I play stupid and let my foe set up some defensive boosts on some random stuff. +6 Snorlax. Why the hell did I let that happen?

VoLowM (Rotom-W) @ Electric Gem
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 232 HP / 56 SAtk / 220 Spd
Modest Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Volt Switch
- Hydro Pump
- Protect

The best feeling is when you play the entire game as if Rotom is Choiced. To the point of switching out when I don't even need to. All for one thing, to kill your goddamn Water types. Because when I play as if I have a Choice item the entire game and use Hydro Pump, then is the time to do stuff with Starmie or Gyarados or whatever. But nope. I have Volt Switch. With Specs level power. This thing is fun. Will-o-wisp also is helpful. Protect is there in case my foe has that damnable Slaking. Nah, this isn't RSE. I have it there because I believe at least one Pokemon should have it on a team because you can do some pretty cool stuff with it.

Run Leftovers > Life Orb on Scizor, and throw in a Pursuit or Superpower, whichever fits your team best

Also, most Scizor's run 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Sdef-Spe, as this guy cant even take a fire attack from anything not using Ember
Whelp, replacing Scizor with Ferrothorn.
I ran some stats through a damage calculator, and Mienshao guaranteed OHKO (with Life Orb) on Tyranitar. I run Leftovers on Tyranitar most times because Chople Berry usually doesn't help that much for me. :|

For Rotom-W I would actually use a bulk set; then (if you're keeping Scizor) it can take the fire hits. 200 HP, 232 Sp. Def, 76 Sp. Atk. Speed investment for Rotom-W is usually done to complement Choice/ Trick.

Electric Gem is wasted on Volt Switch, and I don't favour most 1 use items.

Landorus: Substitute Life Orb is a bit meh. Replace with U-Turn instead?
Chople isn't there for Fighting attacks from Fighting types. It's really there for those Focus Blasts and other such non-Stab attacks. I wouldn't even think about staying in on a FIghting type, but it works great to take on stuff like Gengar, who will try to KO their way out of the trap in most cases I've seen. Plus it bluffs a Choice item in some cases. Always nice to have with my playstyle.

As for Rotom, the set works pretty well with my playstyle. It provides me with enough bulk for switching, while also giving me the Speed needed to hit a few random threats that cause me some problems. The Gems I adore. They can give me an instant advantage and can provide such a trick that I can usually win the game from there far easier than I would with a Specs.

Landorus has Sheer Force, so only HP Ice takes recoil damage. Since I'm usually spam-killing with Earth Power it honestly is not a problem. When I do use HP Ice, I'm using it to KO, so I don't really care about recoil of 10%.
I always thought Pokemon like Politoed would go for STAB Water moves instead (especially with Focus Blast's 70% accuracy), but yea Gengar would try and OHKO you with one Focus Blast.

I still feel Electric Gem is a bit of a waste of an item slot; it'd be good for OHKOing Pokemon like Gyarados (I'm guessing your opponent will think you're going to switch out and go for Dragon Dance so you can Volt Switch), but if you're facing a rain team you'll face more than just 1 water type, and Volt Switch with a BP of 70 is the only Electric move on your team. You will also have to switch out and let something else take the hit.

I missed it and didn't read Landorus had Sheer Force; I thought that said Sand Force. T__T
I'd like to point out that if trachy wasn't running Chople Berry I would have beaten this team the other day. Chople Berry won him the battle, because my Gengar died when it's Focus Blast didn't kill t-tar and tar used Crunch, otherwise I could have brought in Gengar at the end and killed that paralyzed Lando, thus winning the match. I'd say Chople Berry did it's job. And TBH, I dont' remember if that Rotom fooled me or not but looking at the set now I actually like it quite a bit :D
I know this isn't helping but I love your nick names and descriptions trachy <3. Ok so these sets do seem outa the norm but then again don't battle much...I have  however used a Chople T-Tar and I agree with what trachy and SBR say, I got a surprise few kills with it. (btw if ya want to know I got the idea from a random guy on the main server,who then continued to sweep). I didn't help much I know but thanks for idulgeing me for a bit ;}
