So me and Mew got together, him wanting to build a team with me. Now, i had 2 pokemons that had gotten me various sweeps in a very recent team, and told Mew about them. He liked the idea and decided to use them as a Special Sweeping core. Then, we added some walls, trolls, and physical sweepers. Many new tests on this team, including the Scarforus Mew was dying to try out. While the team synergizes very well, Mew encountered a problem with Venasaur, though i did not. While this team may seem very troll-like and gimmicky, it's actually very simple to use and does a great job to mess with half of the tier, and destroy the other half. Now, listen carefully to the words of thy Nuberator.
I agree that Leboss is a Noob in every way, for spamming me trying to get me to agree to use Hydro Pump Magikarp. As Leboss said, listen to these words carefully.
The team preview:
Hexorus (Haxorus) (F) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
- Aqua Tail
This guy is the definition of the perfect Scarfer. With an unrivaled Attack stat amongst its dragon siblings, and a decent ability to negate the likes of Levitaters, this guy is a shiny, polished ax, ready to be used. Start it all off with an Outrage, so opposing dragons dont stand a chance (unless scarfed variants locked into a dragon or ice move). It also hits hard, and a great move in general. Aqua Tail is Mew's way of telling ground pokemons to gowai. Also, let's use abuse rain a little bit with it. Superpower is what is necessary to take down steel types such as Ferrothorn and Skarmory, who both wall this Hax pretty well. It also help's hit Tyranitar for a decent amount of damage. Earthquake eh? Good bye Rotom-W and friends! Haxorus came to get the job done. And doing it well, since no pokemon is safe from resisting these moves.
Bravo! (Alakazam) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
- Calm Mind
- Focus Blast
This guy serves 3 purposes on this team. Absorb Will-o-Wisp's and Toxic, troll the oponent with Encore to get up a CM or 2 or 50, and then sweep from there. Encore was the inspiration, seeing that with it, we could troll so many things that try to set, such as Hazards setters, or things like Dragonite, who always goes for a DDance. Then, we get some Calm Mind's up and sweep with the great coverage set. Only walled by Sableye and Spiritomb (both which are a bit rare in OU), we can sweep entire teams with him. Psyshock is STAB, and lets us hit bulky SDef walls really hard. Focus blast lets us hit things we are weak to, or stuff Psyshock wont hit very hard, mainly dark and steel types. The inspriration and mvp of this team.
Mismagius (Gengar) (F) @ Black Sludge
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Shadow Ball
- Focus Blast
Due to the fact that very few people in OU use Taunt makes it quite hilarious to use. And the people that do usually run it on Jellicent, mainly to stop Ferrothorn or sometimes Scizor. Surprisingly enough, Taunt lets us ruin the day for walls and set-up sweepers. HP Ice lets us hit dragons, who are well known for their ability to set up Dragon Dances. Shadow Ball is STAB, and let's us make the unresisted GhostFight combo when paired with Focus Miss. That being said, Taunt just opens the door to sweeping.
Ferrotrolls-a-lot(Ferrothorn) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 88 Def / 168 SDef
- Stealth Rock
- Leech Seed
- Power Whip
- Thunder Wave
Gonna make this short. Trolls. Ruins Rain teams. Hazards. Team support. There, that's what Ferrothorn does for this team, and very well too.
Overgrown Magikarp (Gyarados) (M) @ Leftovers
EVs: 56 HP / 248 Atk / 204 Spd
- Dragon Dance
The underdog of this team. Credit to Nuberator for this amazing set. Substitute starts us off, as it isn't seen much on Gyarados, and lets us set up the necessary Dragon Dances that Gyarados needs to sweep while outspeeding scarfers. Then, Waterfall is the best STAB water move Gyarados has that isn't OP (damn you Hydro Pump). Then, Bounce comes in to play. We can save ourselfs our sub for an extra turn, get some nice lefties recover, and possibly paralyze the opponent, if for some reson we don't KO them. The epic underdog. (Or undersea snake)
Det Washer (Rotom-Wash) @ Leftovers
EVs: 248 HP / 28 SAtk / 228 SDef
- Hydro Pump
- Volt Switch
- Pain Split
Well, Mew and I went shopping at our local Pokemon Center and found a washer for sale. Not knowing it was an useful pokemon, we bought it. Anyways, this is more of a SDef Rotom-W set. Hydro Miss and Volt Switch are both STAB, and let's us counter Rain and Sand teams HARD. Will-o-Wisp stops physical pokes in their tracks, and we can heal off a lot of damage with Pain Split. Loving our new washing machine.
Team score: 44-7
