How can I improve my OU team?

0 votes

This is my first OU team, and I was wondering how to improve it. Here it is:

Skarmory
- Roost
-Stealth Rock
- Whirlwind
-Brave Bird
Item Attached: Shed Shell
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 96 Atk / 140 Def / 20 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

Skarmory sets up Stealth Rock, then PHaze's and heals, occasionally attacking.

Infernape
-Close Combat
-Grass Knot
-Fire Blast
-Stone Edge
Item Attached: Life Orb
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 64 Atk / 252 SAtk / 212 Spd
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)

Infernape is my mixed sweeper. He takes down SkarmBliss and bulky waters.

Scizor
-Bullet Punch
-U-turn
-Superpower
-Pursuit
Item Attached: Choice Band
Ability:Technician
EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

Scizor picks up the scraps and finishes. Pretty simple.

Swampert
- Curse
- Earthquake
- Avalanche
- Waterfall
Item Attached: Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 252 HP / 136 Def / 120 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)

Swampert is my Tank. After a couple of Curse's, he hits hard, especially with Avalanche.

Salamence
- Draco Meteor
- Dragon Pulse
- Fire Blast
- Hydro Pump
Item Attached: Choice Specs
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

Salamence is my special sweeper. Standard SpecsMence.

Tyranitar
-Crunch
-Earthquake
-Stone Edge
-Ice Fang
Item Attached: Choice Scarf
Ability: Sandstream
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature

Tyranitar's my Physical Sweeper. Choice Scarf+Jolly=by by lot's of fast things. Unfortunately, Ice Punch isn't an option... Thanks in advance!

Is this Gen V or IV?
Generation V
i dont like superpower on sizor the recoil can cripple him since he relys on attack
His Scyzor is being used as a " Finisher " Meaning he's meant to come in, Use an attack, then switch out.
J98 is right. My scizor is used to beat up on pokemon that are already crippled. Superpower is for steels. I think I am going to keep it, because it can do nice damage to blissey.
I also have an Accelgor with Focus Blast, HP Ice, Bug Buzz, and Giga Drain. 4 HP/ 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd. Timid Nature. Choice Specs. Could replace Salamence. Just an idea...

Best answer

firstly,on infernape i would suggest replacing stone edge and fire blast with flamethrower and stone edge with rock slide because especially since you have the life orb attacked, you wont need the extra power.

actually do this with all of the pokemon if you can replace the higher power moves with here lower power counter parts like hydro pump with surf because in battle like this you don't want to miss

uhhhhhhh... rock slide isnt that much more accurate than stone edge. surf wont ohko anything. same with flamethrower. these moves usually dont miss....
Reliability is still a huge factor in the games. It only takes one miss for your pokemon to go down. You really want that safety of knowing it will hit, especially when you're using it to counter specific pokemon. You won't need a fire blast to take out a skarmory, especially with STAB and life orb power.
Stone Edge is better than Rock Slide though.
Ok, Overheat or Flamethrower in place of Fire Blast. Which One?
Flamethrower!
