PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

They say revenge is a dish best served cold, and Weavile IS an Ice type...

4 votes

This team was made by Mew and myself, and we made built it around one of my favorite OU pokemon, Choice Scarf Weavile. While this team might seem a little bit standard, Choice Scarf Weavile tends to catch people off gaurd, as it is only outsped in OU by Choice Scarf Jolteon, and nobody uses that like ever, so it's an amazing revenge killer and late-game sweeper. So far this team is 17-1 on Showdown main server, and I really enjoy using it. As a replay I only have 1 decent one where I had an extremely close battle with Leboss, which resulted in me winning thanks to Weavile, but Leboss battled his rear end off and could have won if he had known Weavile was scarfed. Idk why I used Gen 4 sprites I just felt like mixing it up, and Weavile looked epic HG/SS.


Weavile @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SDef
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

- Ice Punch
- Night Slash
- Low Kick
- Pursuit

Having problems with your enemy getting sweepers with speed boosts? Whether it be Scarfers, +1 speed threats, or even some +2 speed threats; Weavile can step in and drop the infracting opponent with relative ease. With base 125 speed and a Scarf, Weavile can even outspeed max speed Venusaur in the sun when Jolly, and can take it off it's pedestal with STAB Ice Punch. Night Slash is secondary STAB and hits a lot of things for massive damage. Low Kick deals insane damage to Heatran, 2HKO's standard Ferrothorn, and stops Terrakion and Tyranitar in their tracks. Whether it's late game sweeping, trapping Psychic and Ghost types with Pursuit, or revenging something that is otherwise too fast to revenge, Weavile does not disappoint.

Starmie @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 Spd | 252 SAtk | 4 SDef
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Rapid Spin
  • Hydro Pump
  • Thunderbolt
  • Ice Beam

Starmie provides the team with a fast sweeper and a Rapid Spinner to help support Weavile and allies. Hydro Pump is STAB, and Thunderbolt and Ice Beam get amazing coverage, and Leftovers allows Starmie to negate Sand and Hail damage.

Heatran @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 SDef | 252 HP | 4 SAtk
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Earth Power
  • Lava Plume
  • Stealth Rock
  • Protect

The teams special wall and Stealth Rock setter, Heatran can wall a plethora of threats Lava Plume is STAB and trolls extremely hard with the frequent burns it gets. Protect is very trolly and scouts like a sir, also allowing Lefties recovery, and Earth Power beats other Heatrans and gets decent coverage.

Breloom @ Life Orb
enter image description here
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Spd | 252 Atk | 4 HP
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Bullet Seed
  • Mach Punch
  • Spore
  • Low Sweep

The more I use this set, the more I come to like it. Spore gives ensures that as long as I can get it off, my opponent will get some beauty sleep. Mach Punch is priority and with Technician hits decently hard, and Low Sweep is his main STAB move, as it hits very hard and lets Breloom assassinate threats such as Latios and Latias, which end up switching into a Low Sweep, having their speed lowered, only to be outsped by Breloom and KO'd by a Bullet Seed (Provided it hits at least 3 times).

Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
enter image description here
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 184 Def | 252 HP | 72 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Earthquake
  • Substitute
  • Protect
  • Toxic

Standard Poison Heal Gliscor, Earthquake is STAB and doesn't hit super hard but deals a decent amount of damage when needed, Substitute and Protect make for an insanely effective Toxic stall technique, and along with Poison Heal he can do this effectively without losing HP gradually due to Sub.

Rotom-Wash @ Choice Specs
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk | 4 HP | 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Volt Switch
  • Hydro Pump
  • Trick
  • Hidden Power [Fire]

Adding some Firepower to the team, we have Rotom-Wash, here to screw walls and stallers with Trick, all the while hammering OU with his Specs boosted attacks. Hydro Pump is the main STAB, Volt Switch is for scouting, letting allies get free switches, and also hits pretty hard. Hidden Power [Fire] screws the Ferrothorns that wall Rotom, and Trick is so very annoying.

Looks very nice Ben and MewMew.
Nice team + 1
Choicd Band Weavile > Choice Scarf, Ice Shard >Ice Punch: Weavile is a naturally fast Pokemon whose Typing typically forces Switch Out; Pursuit would become the STAB of Death, and Ice Shard as it doesn't need to outspeed anything to Score the KO.

Scarf Rotom-W > Specs: Your short of a Scarfer.

Just my suggestion, not necessarily something that needs to happen.
Oh, and did I mention +1? Unique team as always B3N!
Thank :)
Don't forget Mew, whom I built the team with.
Very nice team. Mew and Ben
Crit on Politoed...
Why oh why must the crit always happen towards the end of a match? >.>
Moo and Bean. Very good :D
