PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

RU going somewhere?

0 votes

Right, I don't really do much competitive battling, but when I do, it's in OU, UU and NU. So I decided to test the waters of RU for the first time, having little to no knowledge of the metagame (apologies in advance if this team is incredibly noobish XD)

Calm Nature
248 HP/144 Def/ 166 SpD
-Fire Blast
-Slack Off

This provides some great mixed bulk and epic stalling powers. This also provides a water and fire resist, something very important to this team.

Galvantula@Life Orb
Timid Nature
4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe
-Bug Buzz
-Hidden Power Ground
-Giga Drain

Life Orb is so that I can switch attacks, which I value a lot due to things that would wall me otherwise. This thing outspeeds quite a lot of pokes, and hits hard too. This is my first special sweeper of this team.

Moltres@Life Orb
Timid Nature
4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe
-Fire Blast
-Hidden Power Grass

Fire resist, as well as incredible special attacking. Obviously my second special attacker. Moving on…

Trait:Clear Body
Adamant Nature
100 HP/252 Atk/156 Spe
-Shift Gear
-Gear Grind
-Wild Charge

Wild Charge > Return so that I hit water types hard. This gives me a rock resist as well, which two of the team is weak to. Also after 2 Shift Gears, this guy sweeps anything that doesn’t resist, or at least puts a large dent in it.

Trait:Iron Fist
Adamant Nature
156 HP/252 Atk/100 Spe
-Shadow Punch
-Drain Punch
-Fire Punch

Another rock resist, and my physical tank. He hits both my major weaknesses with STAB earthquake, can recover with lefties and drain punch, and gets coverage on grass types with fire punch.

Kabutops@Life Orb
Trait:Battle Armour
Adamant Nature
4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
-Rapid Spin
-Stone Edge
-Aqua Jet
-Swords Dance

I needed a spinner without a weakness to rock or fire, so Cryogonal was out. This guy brings some decent offensive prowess as well as a x4 fire resistance and spinning capabilities to the table.

So, there we are, the team. Any improvements and suggestions are welcome, and thank you for reading :)

I don't mean to be rude, but it helps if you have proof of your ladder ranking. Type in "/rank [your showdown name here} in main chat and screen shot it so we can see your ranking. :P
I know, but I started to lose and didn't get a screenshot. I'll take that out until gets higher again.
