Samurott (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Torrent
EVs: 128 HP / 4 Def / 252 Atk / 124 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Aqua Jet
- Swords Dance
- Megahorn
- Dragon Tail

My standard Samurott set, although a bit different EVs from normal. Priority is the main point of this guy, hitting hard and taking guys down before they can do anything. If I can get Swords Dance up, A STAB +2 LO boosted Aqua Jet (hell, maybe even add Torrent into the mix) can do some damage. Megahorn hits hard and provides some type coverage. Dragon Tail is to get stat boosters and what not out of there. The EVs give me some Speed when not using priority and some Speed to outspeed some other priority users. It does a good job protecting Braviary from Ice type attacks, Flareon from Water type attacks, and Rotom from Ice type attacks.


Braviary (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Defiant
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Brave Bird
- Superpower
- U-turn
- Frustration

This guy hits very hard. Like a mini-Staraptor. I send it out to take down foes slower than it. It destroys them quite well. Brave Bird and Frustration get STAB. Superpower gets type coverage in addition to a nice 120 base power. Seeing as I run Choice Band, I won't be needing to stay in long, so I can just get out of there after using it. U-Turn is a powerful hit-and-run. Not much else to it. Choice Band+high attack lets this guy be a great attacker. It also takes Grass type hits against Samurott, Bug hits on Absol, and Ground type attacks against Flareon.


Flareon (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Flamethrower
- Wish
- Toxic
- Protect

Yeah, bulky Fire types ftw! Does a nice job of taking down other Fire types, as well as any Steel or Grass types my opponent has. Flamethrower actually does more dmaage than Fire Fang would, so yeah. Not using Fire Blast because I intend to be in for some time. I have a Leftovers+Toxic+Wish+Protect thing, so I do damage while healing. If I can get in a Flash Fire boost, I can do some nice Flamethrower damage. Also makes a solid Special wall against any non Water types. Takes Grass attacks against Samurott, Ice attacks against Braviary, and Ice type attacks against Rotom.


Absol (F) @ Life Orb

Trait: Super Luck
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Sucker Punch
- Superpower
- Night Slash
- Psycho Cut

The newest member of my team, replacing Regice, whose typing was making that walling difficult. I decided to take a more offensive approach by using Absol and it has worked out quite well. It might not be able to switch in on attacks but it sure as hell can do some great revenge killing. Sucker Punch off 394 Attack, STAB, and a Life Orb can end up doing amazing damage, especially when I get a crit. Regice was a good Gorebyss counter and so is Absol thanks to Sucker Punch. I didn't want to use Swords Dance because I wanted that extra moveslot for something else, so I'm using all attacks Absol. Superpower gets great coverage along with my Dark type moves. And I said moves. I was tired of foes taking advantage of Sucker Punch. So I got in Night Slash. It hits hard (especially with that crit chance) and can take down foes who would use Sucker Punch to set up. I launch this right away on foes like Golurk, who would use the chance to get a Sub up on me. Psycho Cut is coverage. It might have low base power but it still hits pretty hard. Against those physical walls though, I hope for that crit chance to kick in. It also gives me another move in my arsenal to use against Haunter if it Disables Night Slash.


Miltank (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sap Sipper
EVs: 248 HP / 16 Atk / 144 Def / 100 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Body Slam
- Heal Bell
- Milk Drink
- Zen Headbutt

Okay, I hate Grass types. Which might be why this team is so good at taking them down. And because I'm allowing Contrary Serperior into this, as well as Regenerator Amoongus, well, I need that protection. Miltank does the best of the bunch at taking Grass type hits. And that is because it has an immunity to them. Leech Seed, Spore, Sleep Powder, Stun Spore, Giga Drain, Leaf Blade, Seed Bomb, Leaf Storm... Miltank laughs at all of them as it gets to a 300 Attack stat from them. Body Slam is STAB designed to paralyze the foe. Miltank might have alright speed, but without EV investment it can be outsped by plenty. Heal Bell is to provide team support. Samurott and Braviary hate Burn, and if I fail to predict a Fire attack and switch in Flareon, I'll need Miltank to provide support. I might also force any Fire types to switch out because Miltank is commonly seen with Thick Fat. Paralysis sucks, so I can protect my team from that, especially my Braviary and Rotom. I can also heal off any Spore/Sleep Powder Sleep I fail to intercept with Miltank. And Freezing sucks, so having this guy here to heal off that random freeze is nice. Miltank also appreciates having status removal, as Burn, Paralysis, and bad Poison all annoy it a lot. Milk Drink provides Miltank with healing. Zen Headbutt is there for a SE hit against Grass/Poison types and any other Poison types. Especially Haunter. Takes Grass attacks aimed at Samurott.

Note: When not using my rules and just doing standard, I'll replace Milk Drink with Stealth Rock.


Rotom-S @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Volt Switch
- Air Slash
- Trick
- Hidden Power [Grass]

This guy is great because with a Choice Scarf and max Speed it can outspeed two of the top threats in NU. First off, it outspeeds a Chocie Scarf Sawk and can hit hard with an Air Slash. Second, it outspeeds a +2 Gorebyss (by a lucky one speed point, talk about perfect Speed stat). And it hits hard with a Volt Switch, which should KO Gorebyss. Trick is great to screw over walls and such. HP Grass is there to take down Seismitoad. Takes Grass attacks aimed at Samurott, Ground attacks against Flareon, Fighting and Bug attacks against Absol, and Fighting attacks against Miltank.

I'd answer but three things are holding me back:
1. I have no idea what half of those things are (due to the Japanese names)
2. I'm scared to answer (it might be a horrible answer)
3. It seems like a really  good team already
Wow Trachy. Im Impressed. Shoulda expected it though
