PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

UU team. This time, it's for real.

The name is Gigaslash, Giga for short. But you can just call me "Faithful All-Knowing Pokemon Lord of Doom". If you'd like to rate du team, I'd appreciate it.


Swampert
Mudmonster (Swampert) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 220 HP / 216 Atk / 72 SDef
Careful Nature
- Earthquake
- Avalanche
- Waterfall
- Curse

Look at the dumb facial expression, he's like a physical Slowpoke. Swampert is my tank. Good against Cobalion, Flygon, Krookodile, and a few other sweepers. Avalanche>Ice Punch 'cuz he's gonna be pretty slow (If all goes well) and it does near the same damage either way. I gave him a lil' extra SpD just for the set he is running.


Mienshao
Mr.Whiskers (Mienshao) @ Flying Gem
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Hi Jump Kick
- Stone Edge
- U-turn
- Acrobatics

Pretty good sweeper, for fighting types, it was between this guy and Machamp, and Machamp doesn't have high-jump kick. Fakeout/acrobatics is really all about preference, but I've always liked acrobatics for the massive power w/flying gem.


Registeel
SpiderFace (Registeel) @ Leftovers
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 164 Def / 92 SDef
Impish Nature
IVs: 30 Atk / 30 Def
- Thunder Wave
- Stealth Rock
- Iron Head
- Earthquake

This guy gets my stealth rocks up, and if he's lucky, can cripple a scarfed pokemon, as there is plenty of those in the UU teir, and can (provided they aren't behind a sub) cripple a kingdra, who isn't super threatened by this team's typing.


Cofagrigus
Tut-tut-tut (Cofagrigus) @ Lum Berry
Trait: Mummy
EVs: 252 HP / 140 Def / 116 SDef
Bold Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Hidden Power [Water]
- Rest
- Shadow Ball

This guy is meant to cripple the REST of the Physical sweepers that are immune to Thunderwave (Krookodile, Flygon, etc.) His defenses and ability also make him a pain in the ass to deal with for anyone in the UU tier.


Yanmega
DRAGON!!...fly (Yanmega) @ Leftovers
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 112 HP / 252 SAtk / 144 Spd
Timid Nature
- Air Slash
- Bug Buzz
- Giga Drain
- Protect

My special sweeper. I'm often overconfident in speedboost's ability, but I think it's safe to give him a little more offensive power and bulk-- it pays off in the end.


Weavile
lil'Rascal (Weavile) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Ice Shard
- Night Slash
- Low Kick
- Aerial Ace

This guy is replaceable but I just threw him in there to take out flygon, and maybe put some damage on slowpoke, roserade, and get some extra coverage.


I whipped this up in about 3 minutes, so if I missed something huge, don't be nasty about it. Plus, I haven't played anyone in UU for like, 9 months.

Stealth Rock weakness. No spinner. :(
Okay I will finish my answer tomorrow ;)
Try Modest > Timid on Yanmega. Protect is always nice on first turn, and allows more firepower (or bug power, you can choose which :P)

Also, i realized that this team is severely threatened by Scarfed Variants of Chandelure. Beware of that.
I recognize this team :D

As mentioned Rock weakness, After Swampert goes down Scarfed Flare Blitz Canine hurts you really badly.

Best answer

I like this team. The Pokemon have good synergy between each other. However, you do have a major stealth rock weakness and have no spinner. All my changes will be bolded.

Swampert

He seems like a very effective tank. However, there are some things I would change:

Mudmonster (Swampert) @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 196 HP / 224 Atk / 88 SDef
Careful Nature
- Earthquake
- Avalanche
- Waterfall
- Curse

A different EV spread. He already has enough HP to survive a while. Slight extra investment in Atk provides more reliability in taking down Grass-types with Avalanche. Extra investment in SDef provides extra stability against Giga Drain and Grass Knot, normal 1/2HKOs.

Mienshao

A very effective physical sweeper. I love this guy. He provides lots of extra coverage on your team and is a good revenge killer (in a way... no choice scarf but still). No changes.

Registeel

Nice wall. I personally have never used Registeel before in an UU team, but I will try my best... so I think this guy needs some work.

SpiderFace (Registeel) @ Leftovers
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 100 Def / 156 SDef
Impish Nature
- Thunder Wave
- Stealth Rock
- Seismic Toss
- Earthquake

OK. Get rid of the IVs. Next, a different EV spread. Keep the 252 HP EVs. Because Cofagrigus is a huge physical wall, you need not invest as much in Def. Therefore, the rest may be added to SDef, as Cofagrigus is not fully targeted towards being Specially Defensive. Next, go with Seismic Toss instead of Earthquake. Because of Registeel's low base 75 Attack, he won't be dealing huge chunks of damage. Seismic Toss is great to take down physical walls or Pokemon that will try to set up in front of it.

Cofagrigus

One of my all-time favorite walls and cripplers. Cofagrigus is a great check to all physical walls EVERYWHERE, and he has great synergy with Registeel. I do have some suggestions, however.

Tut-tut-tut (Cofagrigus) @ Leftovers
Trait: Mummy
EVs: 248 HP / 204 Def / 56 SDef
Bold Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Pain Split
- Haze
- Shadow Ball

Alright. I'm changing your whole strategy with this guy. His job is a Defensive Wall and crippler with some investment into Special Defense. Leftovers as a new item provides slight recovery every turn. A new EV spread turns it into more of a mixed wall leaned toward defense. Will-O-Wisp and Shadow Ball will stay on its moveset. However, Rest and HP Water have got to go. Pain Split is a somewhat reliable way to recover Cofagrigus, with its low HP and all. Haze is for clearing the stat boosts of physical (or special) sweepers with stat boosts, like Houndoom or Weavile.

Yanmega

Yanmega is definitely my favorite UU special sweeper. He is great with Speed Boost. However, I will give you another suggestion after I rate him.

DRAGON!!...fly (Yanmega) @ Leftovers
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature
- Air Slash
- Bug Buzz
- Psychic / Giga Drain
- Protect

If you get one or two good protects in, Yanmega's speed will be nearly unmatched with 252 Spd EVs. Modest nature is more effective because after the speed boosts its speed will not need more investment. Psychic has better coverage with your team, but Giga Drain is good for when you switch in to stealth rock. 50% HP loss... urgh.
Here is my new suggestion:

Zoroark @ Choice Specs / Focus Sash
Trait: Illusion
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Dark Pulse
- Flamethrower
- Focus Blast
- Trick / Mirror Coat / Counter

Great Choice Specs sweeper. He has good coverage with your team, and can sometimes be a good counter to choice scarf Chandelure if it has focus sash and mirror coat. Also, it no longer has that nasty stealth rock weakness.

Weavile

Hmm... I'm kind of on the bridge with this guy. I would go Jolly instead of Adamant with him. But here is another suggestion:

Froslass @ Leftovers
Trait: Cursed Body
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Spikes
- Taunt
- Ice Beam
- Destiny Bond

A Spikes LEAD. Froslass is great for quickly setting up Spikes and then using Destiny Bond at the end. Also, it serves as a great counter to other trap layers/leads via Taunt. It also provides a great spinblocker. Remember, if you use Froslass, it should be your lead.

OK, so this is what I think. Tell me if it works out! Good luck.
(Whew... This took a long time to write XD)

Thank you very much for the answer! I think I'll use most of this advice. I like the new Swampert spread, and Registeel spread (I'm assuming the IVs were a typo?) --definitely copying that cofagrigus, (This is the first time using this guy) I'll probably stick with Yanmega and His movest, but I am going to switch his EV Spread and give him a modest nature. -- Would you do anything about my stealth rock weakness? Maybe Rapid Spinner instead of frosslass?


Thank you very much, once again!
Ice Punch>Avalanche
Oops I missed the IVs ;)
UU Rapid Spinners are Hitmontop, Blastoise, and Claydol. I recommend Hitmontop or Claydol for your team, but you can figure something different out if you want ;)
Blastoise if far better than claydol, but there are better bulky water types. Claydol has to many weaknesses, tho it does pull of a good dual screen set
