PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

Any Suggestions For My Team?

1 vote

Okay, this is my first RMT, and currently the team i have found myself usiing the most. I know that this isn't the BEST team out there, but it has been doing alright. It's 4-1 currently, but not exactly my style of battling. I'm open to ALL suggestions, and i have access to dream world abilities. Hope you enjoy what i've came up with. :))



Team Preview

Toxicroak Skarmory Donphan Tornadus Politoed Chansey


Toxicroak
Toxicroak (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Dry Skin
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Drain Punch
- Sucker Punch
- Bulk Up
- Posion Jab

IMO, I think every rain team needs a Toxicroak. He's such a beast, and so hard to kill.. (besides when it's EQ'd) I also run the posion Jab over the Sub because for me, the sub wasn't lasting as long as i would of liked it too.


Skarmory
Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 16 Atk / 236 Def / 4 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Brave Bird
- Roost
- Spikes
- Whirlwind

Not really a fan of the "SkarmBliss" combo, but i deceided to try it out. It is effective but not really my personal battle style. I would like to replace these two.


Donphan
Donphan (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Rapid Spin
- Earthquake
- Roar
- Ice Shard

Needed a spinner because my team would get owned by T-Spikes, Spikes, and SR. Also wanted a prieority Ice Shard for revenge killing. I chose Roar over Knock Off because Knock Off literally got no use.


Tornadus
Tornadus (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Hurricane
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- U-turn
- Focus Blast

Okay, so he has the prankster ability and it's not being used at all, i would like to make better use of it but still have it hit hard?


Politoed
Politoed (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 36 SAtk / 220 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- Encore
- Perish Song
- Scald

Obvi just used to get rain up & stop the potetial set up / baton passers


Chansey
Chansey (F) @ Eviolite
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Stealth Rock
- Thunder Wave
- Softboiled
- Echoed Voice

Not really a fan of the "SkarmBliss" combo, but i deceided to try it out. It is effective but not really my personal battle style. I would like to replace these two. Also, not really feeling the whole seperate spiker / SR'er, so maybe a forretress / ferithorn could replace them? I like the Jellicent Ferrothorn combo, but haven't really put it to the test on this team yet. I also chose Echoed Voice over the Seismic Toss because I don't really like Seismic toss, but Echoed Voice isn't doing it for me like I thought it would..

With your team i would suggest donphan for starmie for stab rain abuse but still gets rapid spin and hits 10x as hard.
If you keep donphan i actually prefer knock off as it is very helpfull and will destroy pokemon like blissey or porygon 2.
I would keep skarmory and get rid of chansey because it sets up spikes and can set sr plus it abuses its fire weakness loss in the rain which lowers its weaknesses to 1 i believe.
on thunderus you can run taunt that will destrow most pokemon who are walls, batton passers and pokemon that use dragon dance and swords dance.
I agree with Blobyolo that Starmie would perform quite well with its Water STAB boosted and getting Thunder. A Surf/Hydro Pump/Scald, Thunder, Ice Beam/Psyshock/Psychic, Rapid Spin set would be very helpful I think.
