Improvements on Hail Uber team?

6 votes

Abomasnow
Abomasnow @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Snow Warning

EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe

Naive Nature (+Spe, -SpD)

  • Blizzard
  • Wood Hammer
  • Ice Shard
  • Earthquake

Obv since this is a Hail team, the snowman has to be here.
Blizzard is for some solid STAB that hits most Dragons in Uber hard plus some other stuff like ground types.
Wood Hammer is STAB as well, hitting Kyogre, Groudon and Tyranitar hard plus some other crap.
Ice Shard is nice priority for setup sweepers and crap like that, for example Rayquaza.
Earthquake is here for Steel types pretty much.
Thinking about it now, maybe I should put more SpA EVs.
Naive is here because of Pursuit (instead of Hasty).

White Kyurem
Kyurem-W @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Turboblaze

EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)

  • Blizzard
  • Draco Meteor
  • Fusion Flare
  • Focus Blast

After some hazards are layed up and Steel types removed, chances are a late game sweep is coming with Scarfed Blizzard, which is excellent STAB.
Draco Meteor is STAB as well, and hits Dragon+other things hard. Obv coming off of an 170 Base SpA.
Fusion Flare is great for getting Steel types like Ferrothorn, Forretress, Excadrill out of the way.
Focus Blast is for normal types like EKilla Arceus and Dialga.
I remember trachy mentioned EPower being better, so I will probs try that out.
Timid to take advantage of that 95 base speed.
Unfortunately, Kyurem Black isn't as good it appears because of lack of viable physical moves :(

Forretress
Forretress @ Leftovers

Trait: Sturdy

EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD

Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk)

  • Spikes
  • Rapid Spin
  • Stealth Rock
  • Volt Switch

Spikes makes it easier to land KOs overall, and helps Kyurem late game sweep.
Rapid spin helps Kyurem and Rayquaza and Abomasnow a lot, and the team overall.
Stealth Rock gives some extra damage on everything that switches in.
Volt Switch is especially nice for giving things a free switch, but also nice after a Pokemon using Outrage has gotten confused and stuff like that.
Specially defensive EV spread for taking crap like Draco meteors.

Palkia
Palkia @ Lustrous Orb

Trait: Pressure

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)

  • Spacial Rend
  • Thunder
  • Hydro Pump
  • Fire Blast

Palkia is generally a big threat.
Spacial Rend is STAB, and hits stuff for good damage with STAB and Lustrous Orb.
Thunder hits Kyogre and Water types.
Hydro Pump is not playing any games. STAB Lustrous Orb in the rain hits extremely hard. This isn't a rain team, but still.
Fire Blast is a nasty surprise for Ferrothorns and Forretresses staying in after taking a Spacial Rend.
Lustrous Orb is actually quite a nice Choice bluffer and in addition giving its STABs a boost, making it the item of Choice.

Terrakion
Terrakion @ Choice Band

Trait: Justified

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Close Combat
  • Stone Edge
  • X-Scissor
  • Earthquake

Though I don't outrun the occosional Lustrous Orb Palkia, Rayquaza and non Scarfed Kyurem, the extra power of adamant is preffered.
Close Combat hits extremely hard and so does Stone Edge. They compliment each other well also.
X-Scissor hits Psychic types like Mewtwo.
Earthquake kind of sucks on this Terrakion, but hits Jirachi and Arceus Poison plus the rare Metagross a bit harder.

Rayquaza
Rayquaza @ Choice Band

Trait: Air Lock

EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Outrage
  • Dragon Claw
  • V-create
  • ExtremeSpeed

Rayquaza hits hard as well.
Outrage hits very hard, and takes out crap like Chansey after a bit of prior damage and other stuff and just doing massive damage in general.
Dragon Claw is for when I don't want to be revenged by something, and just want to throw out a random Dragon Claw.
V-Create actually hits as hard as Outrage if both are neutral, and takes care of Steel types.
ExtremeSpeed is excellent priority which finishes off stuff and can even late game sweep.

Got any suggestions? please leave em!

I'm going to vote up for that LotR thing you've got there, although it is also a solid team.
Edit was tomake it Kyurem-W instead of just Kyurem.
Thanks :D
Just a thought, this isn't exactly a Hail as only two pokemon can take advantage of hail. I guess the residual damage could help Forretress stall of some sort but Palkia and Terrakion are all taking damage. Rayquaza nullifies Hail thus having Abomasnow have to switch in again, which is quite risky because he is very frail in Ubers. Then again, you wouldn't really need to switch in because only Kyurem-W really benfits from it and...... yeah. (sigh) long comment.
Air Lock doesn't CANCEL Hail, it'll just remove all effects until Rayquaza faints or switches.
Abomasnow is here so Kyurem can use Blizzard which makes it pretty dangerous, and Mew is right.
You're pics aren't big enough.

Awasome team as usual, making it hard to gives suggestions for :P
Although I did spot one particular thing that could compliment the team.

Darkrai compliments your team pretty well, and helps scare out " dat Mewtwo ". It also provides some team support for Terrakion, concerning all dem ghosties.

A nice smogon standard Darkrai fits right in, actually.

Darkrai@Choice Scarf
Ability: Bad Dreams
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

-­ Dark Void / Thunderbolt
-­ Dark Pulse
-­ Trick
-­ Focus Blast / Blizzard

So Darkrai getting Blizzard is freaking awasome.
But yeah, it's really a smogon standard with some alternatives for bolt-beam coverage to take advantage of this baws getting Blizzard.

I personally think he'd be a good replacement for Palkia.

Besides that, you have a darn good team. Love the meme concerning Terrakion as well, it's just so true xD

Indeed, Darkrai could compliment my team.
But I'm not too sure about removing Palkia, that makes my team more kyogre weak plus Palkia just generally a big threat have I noticed.
