Hi guys. I have decided to post my Gym Leader team here. First of all, I want you guys to know that I am posting this because:
- I have taken a break from battling (Yes, you can see me on Amethyst, and yes I will sometimes take a part in the tourneys there, but that's because I am trying to find the thrill of battling again) For the most part, I have taken a break. I will come back later.
- If/When I come back, and for some magical reason am still a Gym Leader, I will obviously use a different team, because most of you who battled me probably memorized this whole team by now.
Oh, and before I forget, this team is the new version of the iUU: UnderUsed Soldiers team. The reason I haven't edited that team, or deleted it is because I am thinking of reusing that team sometime in the future. So before I start I want to try something I've never done before. Go through the team members one by one. Lol. Bear with me.
So here were the old UU Soldiers:
The new crew:
So as you can see, not much changed from the old team to another. But really, my whole synergy changed. Big. And that is the whole point of this RMT. Also to show you guys my Gym team, but mostly this. Oh, and another reason was to show you guys my thinking behind these Pokemon, which I did not really do in the other RMT.
So this was the team building process:
I was dying to try out Gliscor Jr, so yes Gligar came onto my team first. It was an important lead most of the time because it can set Stealth Rocks and screw over all the fire types.
At first I had Snorlax to form a core with Gligar, but then a great UU battler called Enoch pointed out to me that Snorlax was basically pointless, as it didn't provide any help, and did the same thing as Umbreon did. Umbreon can also take fire and ice type moves, you know. So then I wanted a spinner, to help out Typhlosion/Chandy. (I forgot if I changed that before this or after) So I searched, and I knew that Blastoise was not going to cut it. Neither was Claydol. So then I found Hitmontop. Hitmontop can spin away those hazards, but can also use Toxic very well. I'll talk more in-depth about it in the actual team.
I really wanted a physical dragon that could set up, and no Flygon was not that Dragon. So then I found Kingdra. Yes it can actually work out side of rain. D-Dance screws over so many Pokemon. After one, it can speed non-boosted Pokemon and also hit hard. I can get many sweeps with this guy.
Umbreon is probably my most important team member. It acts as a Cleric, Wish-passer, and can also screw over Mew.
Say hello to my noobiest Pokemon ever. Calm Mind Raikou. NOOB! But yes, this guy can actually pull off sweeps so much easier than Kingdra. With 115 base Speed, man this guy sweeps like everything in UU that's not boosted or scarfed. Calm Mind boosts my SpA to high levels, and boom T-Bolt everything.
I was so tired of being hit by Pursuit. Also, 80 base speed was not my favorite. Ugh Chandy needed to get out. After searching for a while, I came up with Typhlosion. Yes, bye RU. Hello, UU! The main reason I am using this guy is because of Eruption. Man, does that hurt. nothing, and I mean nothing that does not resist can afford to switch in on this guy. Also, he's scarfed. Base 100 speed? Not bad.
So this is what I really wanted to do :P The main team will be down below, I won't be able to fit sprites and descriptions in on this page alone.
