Help with my OU team

0 votes

This is a desperate request for help. I've been using my OU team for ages and I still can't seem to fix it up so it can handle a majority of battles, cos right now, its about 10% winning and 90% losing, but they are usually close battles. If anyone could give suggestions to movesets or switching out Pokemon, that would be great (P.S I wanna stick with Gliscor and Mawile)
My current OU team is:

Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 56 HP / 200 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Earthquake
- Ice Fang
- Protect
- Swords Dance

Mawile @ Mawilite
Ability: Intimidate
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Sucker Punch
- Iron Head
- Play Rough

Volcarona (F) @ Life Orb
Ability: Flame Body
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Timid Nature
- Hurricane
- Giga Drain
- Fiery Dance
- Quiver Dance

Froslass @ Focus Sash
Ability: Cursed Body
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Destiny Bond
- Confuse Ray
- Thunder Wave
- Frost Breath

Malamar (M) @ Lum Berry
Ability: Contrary
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 220 HP / 160 Def / 128 SDef
Careful Nature
- Superpower
- Night Slash
- Psycho Cut
- Rest

Kyurem-Black @ Lum Berry
Ability: Teravolt
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
Naughty Nature
- Outrage
- Fusion Bolt
- Shadow Claw
- Earth Power

Ignore all the shiny options, I prefer them to be shiny.

Thanks, SunZ

You need a special wall that aids your team and is Kyuerum-Black OU or Ubers?
I think it's in OU; Kyurem White is in ubers

I can certainly say that it's not a bad team. All six pokemon are good, and I'm jealous that all of them are shiny (especially Black Kyurem). However, I can see what is wrong with it.

First of all, you're placing the EVs for most of your pokemon in the wrong areas. You have to allocate your pokemons' EVs with their role. For example, since Gliscor is going to be a sweeper, there should only be 4 EVs in HP, and the rest should be transferred over to Attack (4 HP/252 Attack/252 Speed). In fact, for all your sweepers it would be best to max out the speed stat.

Secondly, as was previously commented, the only tanks you have are physical tanks. You will need a special tank that works with your team. Since you already have six pokemon, though, this will mean that you have to get rid of one of your pokemon.

Thirdly, and correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that you can't have two of the same item on a team. Both Malamar and Black Kyurem have Lum Berries; you will need to swap one of the Lum Berries for something else. Assuming that Black Kyurem's Lum Berry was for Outrage, you could bypass this by giving Kyurem a Persim Berry instead. This also goes for Malamar's Rest: just give Malamar a Chesto Berry.

That's everything I'm seeing. Hope I helped!
