1 vote

Well this NU team was made by 2 uber noobs at NU, Jofly and Jojo :D
It all started on chat, when Jofly came on chat and pronounced the following words:

Who wants to make a team?

I stared at his words and answered

I will make a team with you :D

Following this very interesting dialogue we met on Showdown and then to PiratePad.
This is a team based on the basic template which consist of :

  • One Physical Sweeper
  • One Special Sweeper
  • One Physical Wall
  • One Special Wall
  • One Special Attacker
  • One Physical Attacker

Conclusion
A troll team :)

As you can see these are pretty standard sets but they work very effectively
At first we were having trouble making the team as many of our Pokemon were weak to Rock and especially Scarfed Ramparados but this issue is now solved so this doesn't form such a huge problem as before.


(Replays to be added shortly by Jofly)

Swellow (couldn't come up with a name for it xD)@ Toxic Orb
enter image description here
Trait: Guts
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Protect
- Brave Bird
- Facade
- U-turn

This is a classic Swellow set. We used the Toxic Orb over the Flame orb since the Toxic orb deals less damage then the Flame Orb during the first 4 turns after that we just scout with U-turn. Protect is to start the status inducement which makes this bird a very prominent threat. Brave Bird is our most powerful STAB move that will be bringing down stall shuckle very easily. It also helps as deal with almost any Pokemon in NU. Facade is our second STAB move and will be the one we will often be using. Not many Pokemon can take more then 2 facades from Guts Swellow. U-Turn is to scout if needed and just to keep our main sweeper alive. it also does some notable damage to a few pokemon such as Roselia.


AmphaTroll (Ampharos) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Static
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature
- Agility
- Thunderbolt
- Focus blast
- Substitute

Agility Sweep is not only to be found on Metagross. After just a few Agilities, Ampharos will be fast enough to outpace nearly any Pokemon in NU and will be killing hard with it's STAB Thunderbolt. Focus Blast lends us that extra coverage and is here to get rid of those Scarfed Ramparados especially when we are behin a Substitute meaning we will take a hit and KO in return with a powerful Focus Blast.


Trollily(Cradily) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature
- Protect
- Toxic
- Giga Drain
- Recover

Cradily is our physical wall. It also help ware down Ramparados. It's stellar bulk will make people think twice before switching into it as Toxic can be annoying to deal with. Giga Drain is our semi-recovery move and our Water-type killer. With Storm Drain we can easily switch into a banded water type Move of Azumarril, however we must be wary of Ice Punch as we would be OHKO'd by it. Recover is to troll Pokemon out of PP and force them into struggle, what a troll :3. Protect is here to help us recover some necessary HP which means that we would be able to troll for just a little longer, yay!


Probotroll(Probopass) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Thunder Wave
- Earth Power
- Volt Switch

Harharhar, Probapass. Due to the low presence of many spinners in NU, Probopass will set up some entry hazards with the trusty Stealth Rock and cripple Sweepers with Thunder Wave. It also serves as a special tank which has made the life of so many Pokemon miserable. Well Earth Power and Volt Switch are just here so that we don't completely become Taunt bait.


Hauntroll(Haunter) @ Black Sludge
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Substitute
- Disable
- Shadow Ball
- Sludge Bomb

Subdisable Haunter yay! Very simple yet so many fall to it. Once behind the coverage of substitute it usually becomes as good as invincible. Swellow is doomed if it think that it can switch into it when it is behind a substitute because one disable on Brave Bird and Swellow is rendered completely useless against Haunter. Shadow Ball is our STAB move and will be used to help Haunter devour it's disabled prey. Sludge Bomb is another STAB and will function like Shadow Ball for Pokemon that are immune or that resist Shadow Ball.


Trollpard(Liepard) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 80 HP / 8 Def / 252 SDef / 168 Spd
Timid Nature
- Swagger
- Thunder Wave
- Foul Play
- Substitute

Last but certainly not least! This standard Trollpard set works as good as it always had. Despite it's frail appearance, Liepard is bulkier then it looks. Though not the bulkiest it can take a few hits from many neutral attacks. Whiles crippling sweepers it can also use their own strength against them with the fabulous Foul Play. Ramparados, Swellow and co usually fall to this move due to the presence of their high attack stat. Substitute is to aid him troll more effective

Well this is a NU Trolly Polly team made by Jofly and Jojo
Hope you enjoyed our trolly journey through NU ;)

Thanks for the contribution to help Swellow be part of this team. Trollow and Swelltroll both sound very appealing.

Thanks trachy and fondant :3
Swellow: Quick Attack > Protect
Coming from you I am sure it is a good suggestion, however I have a question: If I were to use quick attack, wouldn't I likely get KO'd easier because of lack of any kind of  bulk on Swellow? Though I will be doing some damage I just wanted to know the possible side-effects too it :3

btw, thanks for the suggestion
(I am tired now...soo...I will..probablyzzzZZZZZ......)
As a Pivot, Swellow can escape situations in which it is threatened. Quick Attack is suggested over Protect as an Answer to deal with Prankster Riolu's Phazing.
oh ok, thanks Enoch :)
