Allow me to introduce the soul mate of my Excadrill in my Mono Ground team, Sandorus.
He functions as the Lead of my team, setting up an early Sweep for the team while the rest Stalls out the little HP the destroyed team has.
Sandorus (Landorus-T) (M) @ Smooth Rock
EVs: 244 HP / 76 Atk / 188 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
Landorus-T functions as the Lead of the team, but must be used sparingly. For example, it wouldn't be wise to set up in front of Abomsnow (no sht ErickHill.). A Full HP investment gives him the Bulk to set up Stealth Rocks, breaking Foucus Sashes and Strudy Abilities, while preparing Sand for Excadrill. It also has enough Speed to outspeed most Monotype Leads, while still Tanking hits like a boss. Earthquake+Gravity is what sets this Set aside from the others. Gravity makes the Set viable for a Mono Attacking set, destroying Skarmory with a 380 Attack that rivals it's Defense. It also it great choice when predicting an Immune Switch-in, such as, oh, I don't now, Thundurus. Eelektross, Thundurus, Moltres, Aerodactyl, Xatu, name it. With 380 Attack firing off a STAB Earthquake, very few Pokemon have the Bulk to survive it.
Here is the sould mate of Landorus-T, Excadrill.
Excadrill (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Rock Slide
- Swords Dance
I think I almost got this guy banned from Monotype after Sweeping several teams, so I had to stop using my Mono Gaia team. I'll pull up a Replay sometime later so you guys can see it in work.
