PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

Is my OU team in decent shape? (GenIV)

0 votes

Gen Four
Pokemon Diamond/Pearl
So far with 14 wins and 1 loss, I feel like the team is doing pretty well. Despite that being the case, I'm sure things will get tougher down the road so I hope you guys can point out weaknesses or flaws that you see and help me fix or improve it.

What would be better alternatives for EV distributions, Natures, Held items, movesets, or even Pokemon choices? I'm open to any advice and suggestions since I want to improve. Thanks in advance!

@Master Kijani No problem. You still tried to help.
Latias is a decent check/counter to infernape. I really like the CM set.

Latias @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Calm Mind
- Roost
- Dragon Pulse
- Psyshock/Hidden Power Fire
Slowbro is also a decent answer to infernape. Really the problem lies in that you have three fire weaknesses. Dragonite could replace metagross as your bulky bander, as it can bypass infernape's ice/rock coverage with extreme speed, which will likely take down the frail monkey, while resisting its fighting and fire stab.
Excellent suggestions! I will try out both Latias and Dragonite to see whether or not they improve overall team performance. Thanks again @★ϟJarJarϟ★  and themadradlilypad!
gengars hidden power should be a dragon type
