So lately I've been more interested in the UU tier, mostly because I'm tired of OU. I always see the exact same pokemon, and I'd like to try out something new. I know the pokemon in UU are repetitive too, but at least I'm seeing new ones. I've never created a stall team either, so it has potential to be... well, let's just say not so good. Right now I know that this is my third RMT in just a little while, if that is a problem, because I kinda feel like it is a lot. Anyway, let's get started with the team!
For the core I used a defensive one I found on the Smogon Forums that consists of Gligar and Snorlax.
Gligar (F) @ Eviolite
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
- Stealth Rock
Stealth Rock is great to get some damage in on a switch, and breaks the sashes of some frail pokemon often used to set up Spikes or Stealth Rock such as Froslass. Roost heals, and keeps her alive for significantly longer. Earthquake is Gligar's main STAB, and does good damage to many pokemon. U-Turn is useful because Gligar is not super speedy, giving the advantage on the switch.
Snorlax (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
- Body Slam
- Sleep Talk
This Snorlax is probably my favorite set, and works very well for me. Body Slam is STAB, and a chance for paralysis, which is useful if I get it. Whirlwind is to rack up damage with the rocks I have set up, and remove stat boosts. Rest is to heal at low HP, and Sleep Talk is to move while asleep.
How the core works: Gligar sets up rocks. Snorlax can come out and get some damage out using whirlwind. This core works especially well because of Gligar's main weakness, Ice. Snorlax takes Ice Beams like a champ, as does Gligar with those physical fighting moves that trouble Snorlax.
Sableye (F) @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 SpD
- Night Shade
Sableye is my main status pokemon. Taunt is to prevent being set up on by sweeping threats. Recover is a must on every set, and the reliable recovery is always great to have. Will-O-Wisp is my status move, crippling physical attackers and making them useless. Night Shade takes down low HP foes, and breaks a typical sub.
Togekiss (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 56 Def / 200 SDef
- Heal Bell
- Thunder Wave
- Air Slash
Togekiss is a valuable player on this team. It's Wish passing keeps my team healthy, as does Heal Bell. Thunder Wave is there to spread around paralysis and keep the foe from moving. Air Slash is there to make a deadly combo, Thunder Wave + Air Slash + Serene Grace, that every pokemon that is not able to out speed paralyzed or OHKO, fears. A 60% flinch chance plus paralysis is nothing to mess with.
Bronzong @ ???
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
I'm not sure what to run here, I might run dual screens, but I think I have enough support already. Suggestions are welcome.
Hitmontop (M) @ Leftovers
EVs: 56 SDef / 252 HP / 200 Def
- Mach Punch
- Rapid Spin
- Sucker Punch
