PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

You Can't Run and You Can't Hide.

Hello, welcome to another OU rmt question by yours truly. This team specializes in in Steel Core that traps opponents so i can safely abuse of Dragon Spam. Made up of a typical 4 pokemon core, this team brings 2 UU pokemons (both who are quite underrated) up to fight with the big boys and/or crapload of dragons that roam in OU. Peaking quite high on Main, this team has possibly only lost about 12 (maybe 13) of its numerous battles, which is quite good, considering the fact that i suck and OU is a big Rock Paper Scizors game with a little bit of hax in it. Best part is, no weather, weather you like it or not(Yes, i know, terrible pun. Prepare yourself for the upcoming puns)(I warned you...).


Just a little bit of proof from the last couple of days.(Note, this was after the DDoS attack. The team's win streak is much larger, around 60 or so wins)


Team Description and a quick glance:
GarchompScizorRotomLatiosBisharpVictini

Well, you may ask yourself, why is this team successful if it looks like any other random team i ladder against? Allow me to explain...

You see, i wanted to build a CS OU team, seeing that there's a gym to run, and pretty soon, people were gonna catch on and memorize everything i had. And i made up my mind to use the Garchomp Lead that thy godly (and aboosive ;-;) Mewderator had used in his most recent team, in which he put me in charge to ladder it a bit for him. Absolutely falling in love with it, it was my first pokemon on this team. Then, i wanted some scary Scarf power, and who else can fulfill that role better than a Scarfed Latios, spamming Draco Meteors like crazy? Seeing already that i had quite the priority weakness, and the typical Ice weakness, i decided to use one of the most unoriginal cores ever, Rotom-W + Scizor. This reduced my weakness to Mamoswine greatly, seeing that Rotom-W resists both of its STAB moves and proceed to KO with a Hydro Pump, while Scizor can just tear that mammoth to pieces with a Banded Bullet Punch. At this point, i was quite confident in what i had, except the fact that i was pretty much worthless against opposing Scarfed Latios if Scizor was down. Knowing that the Lati twins are pretty much omniscient in OU, i wanted something that can trap things with Pursuit, and that's when Bisharp came to mind. First starting off with a Life Orb + Rock Polish set, Bisharp did his part by trapping stuff and KOing them on the switch, but he was pretty much useless after that. Then, not to long ago, thy lovely ♪$tarPower♪ suggest running a Swords Dance + Lum Berry set. To my surprise, that thing wrecks and hurts things at +2 with a STAB Pursuit, even when the opponent isn't switching. Running max Speed on it to outspeed Heatrans and such, this guy can really be hard to use at times (like not being able to decide weather to Pursuit or Sucker Punch), but he proves himself to be quite the valuable asset to this team, which is fine by me. Finally, i just needed something surely take out Ferrothorn with a nice, strong STAB move, and Victini was a recent pokemon i tried in UU who came to mind. Now, if you know Leboss well enough, i like to divide roles amongst my pokes, so that 3 are physical and 3 are Special. That means that the usual Band + V-Create spam was ruled out, and i went with a Special set (the same set i had been using in UU). The first battle, it was a Specs Victini, but i noticed that i had no spinner and Choice items cause you to switch a lot, SR was just killing me, so i opted for a more safe Expert Belt, to not switch out so much, but still provide a bit of power. This team really has no problems, except for crappy Baton Pass teams (which i can never seem to figure out) and some types of Hail Stall if Scizor is dead. Seeing that those types of teams aren't common, this team easily wrecks havoc and only loses to major hax and Victini missing with Focus Miss & Thunder all of the damn time. >:/

Garchomp (F) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Rough Skin
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature
- Outrage
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Fire Blast

Focus Sash Chomperz lead. Possibly one of my most favorite things ever. Guarantees Stealth Rock gets up, thus breaking Multiscales and slowing down sweepers such as Salamence and Volcarona. Also, dual STAB moves Outrage & Earthquake provide the godliest coverage for this land shark, allowing me to put an end to battles that start with Dragon Spam and just rids Lead Jolteon in the first turn, thinking it can KO with HP Ice. Finally, Fire Blast finishes off the unresisted FireDragonQuake combo, which lets me hit physically defensive steel types such as Ferrothorn, Skarmory, and Forretress, who all suffer a great deal of damage, and is almost always a 2HKO (unless Ferrothorn runs Protect and gets 5 turns of it >.>). Here's a little replay of Lead Chomp just completely dominating and causing a quick ragequit.


Latios (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Draco Meteor
- Surf
- Thunderbolt
- Psyshock

When the Steel types are away, the Dragons come out to play

Pretty much. Once all Steel types and Specially Defensive pokemons have been taken down on the opponents team, that's when Latios (and sometimes Chompy) come on out and pretty much destroy the opponents team. Spam that Draco Meteor, show them what Latios is all about. Surf allows me to finish off stuff such as Heatran and Terrakion, when i cant risk a switch or a Psyshock for the latter. Speaking of Psyshock, it's really only here to hit Fighting types and the Specially Defensive pink Blobs. Finally, Thunderbolt just adds more coverage, as a lot of rain teams heavily rely on Thunderus-T to take Electric attacks, and Latios can safely have another team member dispose of him to have this sexy blue dragon have his way.


Rotom-Wash @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature
- Hydro Pump
- Volt Switch
- Will-O-Wisp
- Pain Split

Well, i needed something as a back-up, in case i had to take on Mamoswine if Scizor or Bisharp were out, and this guy does this job better than anyone else. Hydro pump all the things, and if they resist/are immune to it, get the hell out of there with Volt Switch! Will-O-Wisp easily stops physical attackers in their tracks, and makes everything regret not carrying a Lum Berry. Pain Split is obvious recovery, and allows me to take down Heatrans much faster, and helps me get back into a more decent and acceptable healthy Washing Machine, cause y'know, the laundry ain't gonna do itself ;)


Scizor (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
EVs: 244 HP / 252 Atk / 12 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Bullet Punch
- Pursuit
- Superpower
- U-turn

Simple reasons why he is here. To trap, to add Priority, to synergyze perfectly well with Rotom-W or Latios, and to add some pressure and gain me some momentum, while still forming a VoltTurn core with Rotom. Bullet Punch is pretty much the reason why Mamoswine and Terrakion aren't too OP. Also 2HKO's TTar, and has a high chance to OHKO Gengar after SR. Pursuit helps form the trapping core, mainly only to trap such threats named Latias and Latios, who love Draco Meteor spams. Hits Jellicent pretty hard, thanks to Technician boosting Pursuit to less weak 60 Base power, and a deadly 80 if it switches, and surely guarantees a 2HKO on him (if i don't get burned). SuperPower pretty much is my ballsy way of trying to take down Physically Defensive Eviolite Chansey, who can give a hard time to this team with either TWave or Toxic stalling. Also, with this EV spread, it allows me to ouspeed almost all Scizors (except the 16 Spd variant, which is quite rare) and put them in a world of hurt with SuperPower dishing out around 55-70% damage to opposing Bug/Steels. Finally, U-Turn is just a strong, reliable, and amazing move, backed up by a Band. Screw you to all the expected Lati@s or Celebi switch-ins, and just hurts TTar greatly. One does not simply counter Scizor easily :P


Bisharp (M) @ Lum Berry
Trait: Defiant
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Sucker Punch
- Swords Dance
- Brick Break
- Pursuit

Best of the trappers. I mean, nothing tells Alakazam and Gengar to go screw themselves better than a STAB Sucker Punch while they greedily think they can KO with a Focus Miss. Swords Dance along with the Lum Berry to ensure no Will-O-Wisp's touch and ruin this guy. Think you can switch into an Intimidate user? Lolno, Defiant just boosts my Attack +1 with intimidate, and +2 at any other drops, so Lando and occasionally Gyarados can go eat a Sucker Punch. Brick Break is really for stuff such as a late game Ferrothorn, Skarmory, and Heatran. Pursuit brings the difficulty in using this guy, as not many people suspect a Pursuit Bisharp, and others just get extremely ballsy, knowing that 99.999999% of all Bisharps carry Sucker Punch. Apart from having a bit of a rough time using him though, this Power Ranger can wreck stuff up if i can predict correctly.


Victini @ Expert Belt
Trait: Victory Star
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Blue Flare
- Psychic
- Focus Blast
- Thunder

Lol, Victini in OU is pretty rare. Now, to see a Special Victini... well, you're in luck. :P Blue Flare is all you need to say good-bye to most sun teams. Psychic just ruins Toxicroak, fighting types, and my most reliable move when i need to deal decent damage to stuff such as Rotom-W. Focus Miss is great coverage, but man, its miss ratio when i use it is too damn high! Although it does rid of Mamoswine and Hydreigon with ease. Lastly, Thunder, even though that too misses a lot, is used to counter Rain teams, as it hits a bit harder than Thunderbolt, allowing me to pull in some KO's on different variants of Politoed. Plus, Victory Star helps a bit with the accuracy situation. :P

248 HP / 28 SAtk / 228 SDef on Rotom-W so you can OHKO Gliscor.
kk, will try that out.
Just sayin... you knew that I was going to be using cs ou in our gym battle. Why still thunder? xD
Lol, just because i use this for the gym doesnt mean i dont use it to battle some weather teams :P
