PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

What's this... It's a Mono Steel Type Team... And I'm back... V1.1

1 vote

Aww... Isn't nice to be back, Alright, let's get down to business. This is I think my first mono Type Team, So Here you go! Again, It's nice to be back. Oh, and who wants to see me beat a sun team?/ Mono Fire?


The Birth of my team:
So the team started when I was in a Mono Type Tourney on Showdown, and I faced a Mono Steel Team. I was using/testing my new Mono Normal type team. So I got pummeled and tossed up in the Corner. But I saw the potential of a Team like this, So guess what, I made one.


The Pokemon that were chosen:

Scizor

So First off I need a lead, so I chose quite a popular one. Scizor. And here is the Info.

Clampers (Scizor) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Bug Bite
- Bullet Punch
- Pursuit
- U-turn

So I was thinking at what I can do here. I knew there were many ways of using scizor ( kind of) but this is it. So Bug Bite gets three boosts: STAB, Technician, and Life Orb. This the same for Bullet Punch. So Bullet Punch is for Priority. Then pursuit is for those who want to try to switch to Fire Types/ Fire Types move users. Then U-Turn is for scouting as well as getting out of the battle if needed.


Jirachi

So this is my Mixed Attacker. This thing is absolute DESTRUCTION. Just as the name persists.

Destruction (Jirachi) @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 224 HP / 252 Atk / 32 Spd
Lonely Nature
- Iron Head
- Body Slam
- Psychic
- Charge Beam

So this thing does is a famous tactic for Jirachi, Para-Flinch. With Serene Grace, Iron Head and Body Slam both have an amazing 60% chance of Flinching ( For Iron Head) and Paralyzing ( For Body Slam). Then the really cheap thing this Pokemon does is... well You know how Charge Beam has a 50% of rising Sp. Atk? With Serene Grace this thing can do a 100% of it's Sp. Atk rising because of that. And that increases Psychic's power tenfold. And here is a Star moment this Pokemon has had:
Umad Bro?- 6-0 http://www.pokemonshowdown.com/replay/ou11856948


Heatran

So I was really thinking about a Fire-Type Counter. So Heatran came to mind. And Here is its moveset.

Rawratran (Heatran) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Modest Nature
- Earth Power
- Lava Plume
- Roar
- Stealth Rock

So this is a pretty generic moveset to me. Earth Power is a Fire Type counter. Then its ability Flash Fire, makes it so Fire Type moves can't touch it. Lava Plume is For STAB Fire. Then Roar is for those people who attempt to set up on me. Then Stealth Rock is for basically Sun Teams and Mono Fire Team, don't get me wrong, I use it other times too. Then there is kind of a Star moment for Heatran. It's not all that Starry, but he did Finish the team.
Triple Threat- 3-0 http://www.pokemonshowdown.com/replay/ou11828895


Metagross

Then I was thinking of one of my favorite Physical Sweepers and I said in my mind " This has proved to be amazing in the past, so I guess it will make a great place on the Team!" Here is its set.

Metoboss (Metagross) @ Life Orb
Trait: Clear Body
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Bullet Punch
- Earthquake
- Zen Headbutt
- Ice Punch

Okay this is is actually my original set with this Metagross if you have seen my first RMT. So Bullet Punch is priority. Earthquake is for coverage. Zen Headbutt is STAB Psychic. Then Ice Punch gives coverage as well. This was also in the Triple Threat Replay so I'm not going to post it again.


Ferrothorn

Again This was on my.. well it was on V3.0 of my Star team. But This thing is a beast. So here is its stuff.

Fearothorn (Ferrothorn) (M) @ Rocky Helmet
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 0 Spd
- Leech Seed
- Stealth Rock
- Curse
- Gyro Ball

So this is my main wall. This Beast is something to Fear. Leech Seed gives a stronger version of Leech Seed. Then It does a tactic I love, Curse-Ball. Curse Makes Gyro Ball stronger by Raising its attack and lowering it's speed. And once the move's base power reaches 150,I get STAB. Making Gyro Ball's power Tenfold. And a Star moment for this Pokemon!
Fear the Thorns- 3-0 http://www.pokemonshowdown.com/replay/ou11752118


Empoleon

I really need a Special Sweeper other than Heatran and I wanted Empoleon. It's decent, defensive, And I decided to add it.

Mr. Penguin (Empoleon) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Spd
- Ice Beam
- Roar
- Scald
- Drill Peck

So this a Special Sweeper I have. Scald Is STAB and a decent chance to burn the opposing Pokemon. Roar is also for kicking out sweepers. Drill Peck is for coverage as well as Ice Beam. So basically this is a Water Type Version of Heatran for my team.


So that was my team, So I hope you like it and Vote Up!

And my Old Saying I love so much:

Sweeping Ranger Style!

You just like, die to Ground Type Earthquakes? And even with Heatran, your Fire Weakness is too high. Infernape just tapes this team. And I suggest a Landorus Therian in the Place of Metagross (with Intimidate) to shield up some weakness.
Landorus isn't a steel type
Skarmory can cut the ground weakness.
So possibly instead of Empoleon, use either Skarmory or Bronzong. Skarmory is a nice Defensive wall and Bronzong can be a nice mixed wall. Plus Bronzong has only one weakness which you can switch to Heatran to counter.
Skarmory is nice for eliminating those Ground weaknesses and cutting down on the fighting weakness.
Try instead of U-Turn on Scizor Acrobatics and run a Steel Gem or Bug Gem. This way he can take out those Fighting types that kill your team. Focus Sash also works as an item though that way he can deal with Infernape.
Thanks MrKinjani, I have use Bronzong on an in-game team before, I will definitely put this in effect. But I won't up Date the team here though.
Instead of fearothorn you should have a stronger mixed wall for in sense pun not intended

Steelix  ballistic vest thingy 1.5x Sp def

0 speed IVs

Evs  252 def 252 Sp def 4 HP

Curse
Sandstorm
Stealth rocks
Stone edge
 
Also put dual screens onto metagross
Did you mean the Assault Vest? If you did, then that set you are suggesting is almost useless, since non-attacking moves don't work when the Polemon has an Assault Vest. Also, is the reason you are using Sandstorm that Steelix gets a Special Defence boost from it? That won't work. That's for Rock types only. And 0 Speed IVs is pointless. I assume you were going to suggest Gyro Ball?

Anyway, Ferrothorn is better than Steelix. Ferrothorn's Special bulk and movepool are much better than Steelix's.
MrKijani Gems dont exist this gen :s
Deffinetly need a Ground type counter. Skarmory levitate bronzong. These 2 are very good.
Also there is no real advantage of having 2 stealth rock setters...
Swap stealth rock on heatran for toxic or
Swap stealth rock on Ferrothorn for protect
Slapmyturnip this is gen 5 so gems exist
