PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

My 2nd attempt to make a OU team...

0 votes

This is my second OU team and I think it's quite good and much better than my first OU team. The team has changed a lot before when I first made it, the only Pokémon from the original team is Metagross and Rotom-Wash(though Rotom-W has changed his moveset), and all the other Pokémon on this team are Pokémon that are replacement suggestions from people in showdown, though I’m not completely sure if I should take all their advice because I asked a few people and one of them said that I should change this team to a sand team, another one said that I should make it a rain team and someone also said to put ninetails and politoed on this team and make a rain and sun team together(which I have never read or seen before), then I put salamence on this team, but someone suggested to take him away, then someone else suggested to definitely put salamence back on the team, then someone different said to replace him, then another said to either put dragonite or salamence on the team, so I have been replacing and placing salamence on this team, similar things also happened to the other Pokémon on this team, choiced items and physical sweepers/special sweepers/walls/tanks.

Anyway, here's the team I ended up with:

Metagross @ Lum Berry
enter image description here
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: 252 Atk / 156 SDef / 100 Def
Adamant Nature(+Atk, -SpA)
- Stealth Rock
- Meteor Mash
- Earthquake
- Bullet Punch

Metagross leads the team, and remains unchanged, with a Lum berry and a weird (S)Def EVs which has saved me a lot of times.Stealth Rock is simply to set up a hazard, Meteor Mash is a move that I'm quite sure that 99% of all Metagrosses have it, Earthquake is good type coverage and Bullet Punch is useful priority and STAB.

Rotom-Wash @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 240 SDef / 200 HP / 68 SAtk
Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk)
- Hydro Pump
- Thunderbolt
- Pain Split
- Will-O-Wisp

Rotom-W has come really useful as he can easily take hits and do a good amount of damage as well. Hydro Pump is simply STAB as is ThunderBolt, Pain Split is to heal and last longer in battle and Will-O-Wisp is to keep physical attackers at bay.

Ferrothorn @ Big Root
enter image description here
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 100 Def / 252 HP / 156 SDef
Impish Nature (+SDef, - SpA)
- Leech Seed
- Power Whip
- Thunder Wave
- Spikes

Ferrothorn is just amazing, he has incredibly high stats in both defences and is nearly unstoppable, except when faced with a fire attack. Leech Seed is useful to slowly gain health and take it away from the foe, Thunder Wave is nice with the chance for the opponent not to move at all and helps slower Pokémon on my team such as Metagross, Rotom-W and maybe Gliscor, Spikes is to set up another useful hazard after Stealth Rock and Power Whip is a nice strong STAB attack.

Landorus-Therian (M) @ Expert Belt
enter image description here
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Rock Polish
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- U-turn

Landorus-T is a replacement of Gliscor (which I recently had) and is amazing, he has great attack which doesn't need to be boosted, and a good ability that helps with physical attacks, but his speed isn't good so I gave him Rock Polish to double its speed, then Earthquake is for nice STAB, Stone Edge for coverage and flying pokémon that E-quake can't hit and U-turn is useful to switch.

Latios (M) @ Life Orb
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
- Psychic
- Roost
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Draco Meteor

Latios is my official Sp.Sweeper in this team after Rotom-W, I gave life orb because no Pokémon on my team that has it and I felt I needed a Pokémon with life orb. Psychic is strong STAB, Roost is to heal life orb and other attacks in general as its defences aren't too bad, HP Fire is type coverage and is useful for steel types and lastly Draco Meteor is really Strong STAB thought it does have an unfortunate side effect, so I might change to Dragon Pulse.

Terrakion @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Trait: Justified
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- X-Scissor

Terrakion is my Scarfer on this team and I think it works really well with it, though the choice band (which terrakion previously had) is also good on it, I think Scarf is better, Close Combat is really powerful STAB, Stone Edge is useful STAB again, X-Scissor for psychic types and Earthquake is type coverage.

Here's a importable copy for anyone who needs it.

Well, that’s my team and I hope you liked it, please give any suggestions for replacing Pokémon, Items, Movesets or EV spreads, and ask me if you want any more info or something.

Showdown Replays:

  1. Simple Battle
  2. Heatran+Chansey+Shedinja=Really annoying
  3. So Close...
  4. Interesting
  5. Landorus-T
  6. Another Battle
  7. Nothing Special
  8. Don't click this!

The first 4 replays are with Gliscor instead of Lando because I have only just switched Gliscor for Lando.

Will add more replays.

Thanks In Advance

You should probably convert it into a rain team. I say scarf for Terrakion, because you don't have very much speed on that team. And that person who said sun and rain was probably just trolling you.
would you mind if i could please use this team? If I do, I can get a better understanding of what needs changing
of course you can, do you want a importable copy? And didn't this question have an up-vote, how come it doesn't anymore?
an importable copy would be nice, thanks :P
For Breaking Point :P
You should do a Jolly nature on Landorus-T. It gives it a little extra speed for that lower base stat.
