PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

The Might of [OU]lympus

5 votes

Ha ha get the title? The Might of Olympus, but because this is an OU team it's [OU]lympus? Lol? Nobody? Fine. I thought it was funny.
Anyway, since I haven't posted an OU team on the RMT since forever, and since it's almost school and that means my activity will decrease, I've decided to post this final RMT before school opens. I'm posting this because I rarely play OU anymore because it got boring (Gen 6, you had better make OU better!) and this team isn't getting used that much however it is by far my best OU Rain team yet. And this time I won't post a team building process because I think it takes up room and I can explain them in the descriptions under the movesets anyway. So uh let's get to it :D
(Btw I love Greek Mythology which is why I named the team these names. Oh, and have you guys read the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus books yet? Highly suggest that you do)

Replay vs. Fallacies
It was neck and neck until a good prediction at the very end which won me the game.

Bythos (Politoed) (M) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Drizzle
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature

  • Scald
  • Protect
  • Toxic
  • Perish Song

Yes, yes, yes. I know. Bythos isn't a god. But he is a Ichthyocentaur. Real word. Click the link. They have the upper body of a man, lower part of a horse, and a fish tail. Kind of like a centaur with a fish tail instead of a horse tail. (Yeah Politoed isn't a centaur with a fish tail, he's still a frog. Same thing. Also, that Wikipedia link says that they are some kind of sea-gods. Anyway, back on topic. This is my standard specially defensive Politoed, because the physically defensive one just isn't my thing. (Yes, I have tried it.)
Originally having Surf here, I chose Scald because of the burn chance. However, I still might change back to Surf just for the extra power.
Protect is easily one of the best moves on a ToxicStall Pokemon. A free turn for lefties healing and toxic damage? Sign me up!
Toxic can form a ToxicProtect combo and stall the heck out of the opponents.
Perish Song can force many switches and is extremely useful when something tries to set up on me. Pretty standard bulky rain Toed.


Ares (Conkeldurr) (M) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature

  • Substitute
  • Focus Punch
  • Ice Punch
  • ThunderPunch

Appropriately named after the Greek God of War himself, this guy packs a major punch. This is really a kamikaze Pokemon that tries to deal as much damage as possible before fainting. The SubPunch combo sacrifices Drain Punch healing to deal ultra strong damage. (Yes, he is Ares. Sure he has a clown nose, but don't let that fool ya! I'm not changing his name)
Substitute is the crux of this set mostly because most people expect a Bulk Up set. Well, behind a sub it's wreckage time. It allows me to freely choose any of the following 3 moves that I want and do some major hurt.
Focus Punch is the second part of my SubPunch combo, and man does it hurt. Giving up valuable healing with Drain Punch, Focus Punch can do a ton lot more damage. No heal dough.
Ice Punch can hit dragon types for 4x/2x extra damage. I really don't use it that much, except for ghosts and the occasional ground.
Thunder Punch makes up the BoltBeam punching combination, and basically grants me perfect neutral damage on anything. I can also hit the stupid Jellicent that wants to take the Focus Punch.
I mostly put Conkeldurr in here because MrK totally demolished my team with his own Focus Punch. Well I decided to use my own ;) and boy was that a smart decision. Kudos to you MrK


Hephaestus (Heatran) (M) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP / 180 Def / 76 SDef
Calm Nature

  • Stealth Rock
  • Will-O-Wisp
  • Fire Blast
  • Roar

The Fire and the Forge, the skilled Greek God of Blacksmiths, the honored title was given to the one and only steel and fire type in OU, Heatran! Originally being a Ferrothorn, I decided that I needed a Volcarona counter and out game Heatran. Being the best Vocarona counter out there, Heatran can set up and then Roar everything. This can also counter some very dangerous threats that roam OU, mostly choiced dragon types that wreck havoc. Also why does everone think a Heatran on a Rain team is so weird? Sure it's a fire type, but it being fire type can grant it some key resistances and especially another weather counter. It's really not that big of a surprise xD
Stealth Rock is one of the key reason why I use a steel type. Rocks are so very important in OU that a spinner is needed and when a spinner is using Rapid Spin I can basically get a free attack. (Sadly I have no ghost type but that's ok)
Will-O-Wisp actually can surprise quite a few players and is a great move to use on a switch-in. I can burn all day and when something is locked into Outrage this is a great move to use.
Fire Blast was chosen over Lava Plume and Flamethrower because of it's sheer power. Sure it gets toned down in Rain but that doesn't mean I can't use it over Earth Power. (But then I'm walled by Heatran but almost every one of my Pokemon has a neutral or super effective move against it so I'm not worried)
Roar is my dire Volcarona counter and when it switches in it has to take a 50% health drop.

Max length got me again! Well, team continued below ↓

Oh, God. A flame team ;~; run.
Gen 6 is going to revolutionise Pokemon as we know it. The mega formed are like EEEPPPIIICCC xD I bet Absol, Mawile, and all the others that transform into mega forms are gonna be like Ubers or OU and Blaziken will definitely be Uber and Lucario will be like the most used fighting type and then fairy types and Gardevoir will be OU because fairy is supereffective against dragon and then some dragons will move down and then it will be really epic and now I just despise I typed this in one whole sentence :O

Btw, nice team :D +1!

Hestia (Latias) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 200 HP / 100 Def / 8 SAtk / 200 Spd
Bold Nature

  • Calm Mind
  • Substitute
  • Dragon Pulse
  • Thunder

Welcome, Lady of the Hearth, to this OU team. Yes, Latias is named after the Goddess of the hearth and architecture. Now don't say she isn't a real Goddess because she once was one until she gave up her throne to Dionysis. Latias is my one and only set up sweeper. I can come in and use Substitute, and when I have a couple Calm Minds up, it's pretty much GG. However, two moves I am still half deciding on is Surf or Thunder. Thunder is my move of choice for now, but Mamoswine can kind of wall me and then kill with Icicle Spear, maybe. However Thunder can hit those pesky bulky water types that want to use Roar/Perish Song. My special EV's are custom made so that they can take Scarf Close Combats all day every day and also hopefully tank a lot of physical hits that aren't super effective. I don't really need a lot of special attack because after one Calm Mind it's special attack is extremely high anyway.
Calm Mind is easily the most important move that Latias carries, mainly because without it Latias is kind of useless. (Sub + 3 moves are kind of dumb in my opinion unless you're Lenub and then you somehow sweep)
Substitute is probably the second most important move that I have, because it allows me to avoid Toxic and parahax.
Dragon Pulse is my one and only STAB that can pretty much hit anything hard.
Right now, it's Thunder > Surf. However, that might change because Surf not only hits Mamoswine but it also hits Jirachi harder as well. Still in decision though I've had Thunder for a while now and it works just fine.


Nemesis (Donphan) (F) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Sturdy
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 56 Atk / 200 Def
Adamant Nature

  • Ice Shard
  • Rapid Spin
  • Earthquake
  • Superpower

Ah, the revenge killer herself. The Goddess of Revenge. Now, Donphan might not be much of a lady, but it is a girl so deal with it. And the only reason I say revenge kill is because of Ice Shard :P A very defensive Pokemon, Donphan is my Physical pivot and can tank a lot of Physical attacks. This was also partially the reason I have Politoed as a special wall.
Ice Shard is extremely important on a Donphan because it can easily take down a dragon by itself. (Not really unless it's at low health)
Rapid Spin is also important on Donphan and is really the only reason that I have him, to spin away hazards which can be super annoying.
Earthquake is my only STAB and it's really my go to Jirachi counter. I can take a Body Slam and if I don't get paralyzed I can go for the Earthquake and hopefully do a lot of damage or somehow KO.
I chose Superpower over Seed Bomb because I wanted to be able to hit Ferrothorn. Superpower can also hit a Kyurem on a switch-in and various other Pokemon.


Poseidon (Keldeo-Resolute) @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Trait: Justified
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature

  • Surf
  • Secret Sword
  • Icy Wind
  • Hidden Power [Bug]

Ah, yes. One of the Big 3 himself. The brother of Zeus, the ruler of the seas, it's the Greek God of the Sea! Keldeo easily earned this position as the god of the sea as he carries the devastating Surf that gets a 2x boost from STAB and rain. Keldeo is my main scarfer and Keldeo can outspeed most of the metagame! Only outsped by the Lati twins and the rare scarf Tornadus/Starmie/Jolteon etc, Keldeo can cause devastating power with Surf that can sweep entire teams. This is also my counter to Volcarona, well ones that only set up once that is. Oh, and while he does look like one, don't call him a party pony.
Surf is my main STAB that I pretty much spam when I get the chance. It hurts, coming from a water type in the rain. If you don't resist this move, then be prepared to get hurt.
Secret Sword is my other STAB that can be used to hit normal types like Blissey. Secret Sword can also hit stuff that resist Surf like Hydreigon.
Icy Wind was chosen as my Ice move because while it doesn't hit hard, the speed drop can mean a lot to some of my slower Pokemon.
And finally, HP Bug was chosen over HP Dark to hit Celebi way harder and I won't be staying in on a Jellicent anyway.

I hope you liked the team, and I hope you liked my RMT because it took me a long time to write! :)
