Help With My New Rain Team

0 votes

I have win 23 battles with this team but I have lost on my last 11 battles and now I need some help so I can begin to win again :)

Kyogre @ Leftovers
Kyogre
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 Satk 252 Sdef 4 HP
Modest Nature (+Satk -atk)
Water Spout - Very good power with rain and STAB
Calm Mind - Boosting
Ice Beam - Coverage
Thunder - Good power + 100% accuracy in rain
I use this pokemon as a special tank and to start the rain and kill the opponents first pokemon.

Dragonite (M) @ Life Orb
Dragonite
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 atk 252 HP 4 Sdef
Brave Nature (+atk -spd)
Brick Break - Coverage
Hurricane - STAB + 100% accuracy in rain
Outrage - STAB + Coverage
Rest - Healing
If someone maybe kills kyogre, I switch to this guy.

Castform (M) @ Damp Rock
Castform
Trait: Forecast
EVs: 252 Satk 252 spd 4 def
Modest Nature (+Satk -atk)
Rain Dance - You know why
Blizzard - Coverage
Hidden Power [Ground] - Coverage
Wheather Ball - STAB + Doubles in power with a wheather condition + 50% more power in rain that gives a base power of 225. It´s worth a WOW!
I think this little guy is very underestimated because it looks so weak, but with a move with 225 base is it NOT weak. I use him to start the rain again.

Ludicolo (M) @ Choice Specs (first time i use a choice item!)
Ludicolo
Trait: Rain Dish
EVs: 252 Satk 252 HP 4 Sdef
Quiet Nature (+Satk -spd)
Ice Beam - Coverage
Nature Power [Will become Eartquake] - Coverage
Energy Ball - STAB
Hydro Pump - STAB + Powered up in rain
Not much to say here. I switch him in to kill something, and then I switch him out again.

Floatzel (F) @ Life Orb
Floatzel
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 atk 252 spd 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+atk -Satk)
Ice Fang - Coverage
Dig - Coverage
Agility - Boosting
Waterfall - STAB + Boosted in rain
Not much to except she is a sweeper :)

Jellicent (F) @ Leftovers
Jellicent
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP 252 Sdef 4 Satk
Calm Nature (+Sdef -atk)
Toxic - Stalling + powers up Hex
Recover - Healing
Hex - Use when opponent is poisoned + STAB

Jellicent is my wall. Not much more to say.

Best answer

I noticed that 4 of your pokemon have a weakness to electric types and the other 2 are neutral. Try replacing one or 2 with a ground type and if 2 then bug because of the grass types.


Kyogre is good. No comment on that.


Dragonite, Beautiful. But i would use Outrage, Brick Break, Wing Attack, and Dragon Dance with Persim Berry. Brave nature is bad on Dragonite and he woud be slow that way. Replace with Jolly if you want alot of speed or adamant if you want attack


Drizzle makes rain last forever unless someone else uses a weather move. But, not likely. This is where i shall make a replacment. It is a Sableye.

Sableye (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spdef
Adamant Nature
Moves:
•Will-o-wisp
•Recover
•Confuse Ray
•Shadow Claw

or

Scizor (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 80 HP / 252 Atk / 176 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
•U-turn
•Bullet Punch
•Pursuit
•Superpower

Sableye was a random replacemant. Its just that you have so many water types and castform is the least needed IMO


I just LOVE Ludicolo but... you have 3, 252 EVs and you can't have that XP. Again, minus speed?

Ludicolo (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Rain Dish
EVs: 252 Satk / 4 HP / 252 Sdef
•Ice Beam
•Nature Power
•Energy Ball
•Hydro Pump

I only changed EVs and Nature


Floatzel = Replacement Needed. He Cannot preform type coverage for groud because Dig will get them a free turn/chance to switch to a flying type. There are no other physical moves that are ground that he can learn.

Try:

Steelix (M) @ Choice Band/Leftovers
Trait: Rock Head
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spdef

•Double Edge
•Earthquake
•Crunch
•Gyro Ball


Jelicent, in a scale of 1-10 gets 9.5. The only thing wrong is the ability. Try cursed body since it isn't likely for someone to use a water type move on a water type...


Hope this helps! :D
