PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

Any suggestions for this Smogon OU team?

0 votes

I feel as if I have too much defense and not enough offense. I am open to any replacements whatsoever.

Skarmory (F) @ Shed Shell
Trait: Keen Eye
EVs: 252 HP/ 160 SpDef/ 72 Def/ 8 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SpAtk)

  • Stealth Rocks
  • Roost
  • Brave Bird
  • Whirlwind

Just your average SR Phazer lead. Nothing too special except for the spread of EVs.

Gliscor (F) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
Evs: 252 HP/ 184 Def/ 72 Spd
Impish Nature (+ Def, -SpAtk)

  • Toxic
  • Earthquake
  • Ice Fang
  • Protect

My Physical wall of sorts. Quite common and direct from Smogon, as I'm new to him and don't really know how to use this fellow.

Slowking (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
Evs: 252 HP/ 216 SpDef/ 56 SpAtk
Sassy Nature (+ SpDef, -Spd)

  • Calm Mind
  • Scald
  • Dragon Tail
  • Slack Off

My Special wall as well as partly offensive Wall. Calm Mind for that SpAtk and SpDef boost making him packing some bulk and Slack Off for whatever HP he loses while setting up. I'm very unsure for his third move as Dragon Tail knocks off any threats or Sweepers such as Hydreigon, Scizor, and other commonly used pokemon, but Psychic is perfect for some extra coverage and damage.

Magneton @ Eviolite
Trait: Magnet Pull
EVs: 252 HP/ 204 SpDef/ 48 SpAtk
Calm Nature (+ SpDef, -Atk)

  • Reflect
  • Light Screen
  • Thunderbolt/Volt Switch
  • Hidden Power [Fire]

Dual Screener with some bulk and attacking power. Not for full time use, but to give my team the defensive boosts. Really looking to replace him, though, since I have to give up Light Clay for a bulkier Magneton.

Scizor (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SpAtk)

  • Bullet Punch
  • U-Turn
  • Pursuit
  • Superpower

I love this guy, don't have a problem with him, but open for suggestions. Especially with that Pursuit over there.

Dragonite (M) @ Lum Berry
Trait: Multiscale
EVs:252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4HP
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SpAtk)

  • Outrage
  • Earthquake
  • Fire Punch
  • Dragon Dance

My main sweeper. Not a single problem with him either, but I would really like to get a defensive pokemon with Wish to heal him up if he's too hurt and I can't decide which to pick.

Really, I am open for any and all suggestions. And thanks Riles, as of now I'm working on getting a Jirachi. It will take awhile, but I'll get it.

Sounds promising, but where can I get a Jirachi?
I figured you were a Pokegen user.

If you want a bulky wish passer I suggest you switch Skarmory with SpDef Jirachi, or you could even use a Def Jirachi who can also set up stealth rocks,so if stealth rocks was a prieority for you, then you're not losing out.

Jirachi @ Leftovers
Serene Grace
Careful Nature
252 Hp / 224 SpDef n 32 Spd
Moveset:
-Body Slam
-Iron Head
-Wish
-Stealth Rock


Gliscor is fine

Gliscor (F) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
Evs: 252 HP/ 184 Def/ 72 Spd
Impish Nature (+ Def, -SpAtk)
- Toxic
- Earthquake
- Ice Fang
- Protect


Slowking is good

I would just change Psychic to Psyshock and also thr EV's are a bit weird and less effective try this out. 236 HP / 56 SAtk / 216 SDef


Magneton

Magnet Pull is going to trap those steel types with you, so why arn't you running HP [Fire]?


Scizor is Perfect


Dragonite is fine
Since you're running Outrage instead of Dragon Claw I'd run Lum but if you do choose to run D-Claw, Go Leftovers.

I originally had Hidden Power [Ice] for his ground weakness, but now that I look at Magnet Pull, Fire would fit nicely for other steel types like Scizor and Ferrothorn.

You questioned the pursuit on Scizor and I must say that it is great fo doing massive dammage to any fleeing psychic types. (i.e. a cobalion is versing a reuniclus. Cobalion does volt switch and the scizor is switched out. Scizor takes any psychic move that the reuniclus was usin with ease( actually any move of reuniclus's with ease.). Reuniclus is going to switch out because scizor is bug type. you do pursuit in stead of u-turn and it does a massive 240 damage.
