PokeBase Meta Battle Subway - RMT

Failed attempt at NU - Suggestions?

1 vote

Okay, so I made this team randomly because I wanted to try Eelektross. So I attempted to make a team that I guess compliments it? Idk, I just wanted to use some random Pokemon that I liked, it might not be the best team but it takes a lot of people by surprise... Please give me your suggestions, Thanks! :7


@ Leftovers
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature (+Sdef, -SAtk)

  • Heal Bell
  • Milk Drink
  • Body Slam
  • Stealth Rock

This is pretty much my special wall, I paired it up w/ Golbat because his thick fat ability is pretty useful taking fire attacks aimed at Klang, and ice attacks aimed at Golbat. I'm guessing this is a decent defensive core? Also it has heal bell, because my team doesn't really like status.


@ Choice Scarf
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SAtk)

  • Earthquake
  • Close Combat
  • Ice Punch
  • Payback

So most sane people would expect the standard scarf sawk set, but NO. Since this thing got elemental punches thanks to BW2 move tutors, I figured it's a great opportunity to switch things up. I kinda want to run pay back, just so I can have something to hit those golurks, haunters, gardeviors, and swoobats and musharnas. And mold breaker comes in handy with golems and probopass.


@ Eviolite
Trait: Plus
EVs: 78 HP / 252 Att / 180 Spe
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Shift Gear
  • Substitute
  • Gear Grind
  • Return

Standard Klinklang set, but I think it works better with klang because it's bulkier, if you can start setting up with this Pokemon, it's pretty much a Good Game.


@ Eviolite
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 HP / 176 Def / 80 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Taunt
  • Roost
  • Brave Bird
  • Super Fang

This is my sawk counter, and set up / hazard / status stopper. Golbat has decent Defense, so with the Eviolite, he gets kinda bulky and can easily sponge a close combat.


@ Life Orb
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -SAtk)

  • Flamethrower
  • Thunderbolt
  • Giga Drain
  • Acid Spray

I run Life Orb over Expert Belt because it now has access to Giga drain, and Drain Punch for recovery, it has a good special attack move pool, and decent special attack, so it can hit a lot of different things.


@ Choice Specs
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 192 HP / 252 SpA / 64 Spe
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Flamethrower
  • Ice Beam
  • Draco Meteor
  • Rest

Recommended by Trachy, Altaria Is a Specs varient, most people would probably expect me to dragon dance, then they end up getting slapped with that huge Draco meteor. WOMP, then when I get to the point where I'm feeling too low on HP, rest then switch on outa there.

- Choice Scarf on Sawk.
- Wild Charge can be used on Klang.
- Drain Punch on Eelecktross when it runs Modest?
- Nidoking is UU.
Choice Specs locks you into Rest.
really cool moveset
@Ab Yeah ik, this just prolongs my health to wreck stuff.
You cannot wreck teams if you are locked into Rest.
Use rest on a Pokemon you out speed, then switch out?
Yeah.... But still. I prefer not keeping it.

Wohohoh, my first attempt at answering a RMT. Hope i do it well.

Miltank

This guy works awesomely well as a lead. Miltank's moveset works really well. Good job on that one!


Sawk

Okay.... I am not sure but i think Mold Breaker is unreleased. I normally go with Sturdy anyways but if Mold Breaker is released, it's the way to go. I recommend this moveset:

Sawk @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 Def
Jolly Nature (+Spd,-SAtk)

  • Close Combat
  • Earthquake
  • Ice Punch/ Stone Edge
  • Payback

It's almost the same thing as your one except for the fact that i removed Fire Punch for Payback. Close Combat will get STAB and will hit very hard. Earthquake is good with Mold Breaker. I highly recommend Ice Punch in the third slot to hit Golurk, Altaria and Amoonguss. Payback is here for Haunter, Golurk, Gardevoir and Musharna.


Klang

I highly recommend this moveset for Klang:

Klang @ Life Orb
Trait: Plus
EVs: 252 Atk/ 156 Spd/ 100 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Shift Gear
  • Gear Grind
  • Substitute
  • Volt Switch

First, hide behind a Substitute and use as much Shift Gears as possible. Gear Grind will hit really hard and Volt Switch is for emergency switching.


I see you needed a Sawk counter. Golbat is not the best one out there. I suggest Misdreavus and here is a moveset for him:

Misdreavus
Misdreavus @ Eviolite
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP/ 232 Def/ 24 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def,-Atk)

  • Will-O-Wisp
  • Taunt
  • Pain Split
  • Shadow Ball

Misdreavus avoids Sawk's Close Combat and has Levitate to avoid his Earthquakes. Eviolite gives him some bulk. I have Will-O-Wisp here to break down opposing Physical attackers. Taunt is perfect for stallbreaking and Pain Split is it's only method to heal itself. Shadow Ball is STAB but doesn't hit very hard with any EV investment. It's only there so Misdreavus is not a Taunt bait.


Eelektross

That Eelektross is good apart from the fact that you are using Drain Punch on a Special attacker? That has to be changed. I recommend this moveset:

Eelektross @ Life Orb
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 SAtk/ 4 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Thunderbolt
  • Flamethrower
  • Giga Drain
  • Acid Spray

I only changed the nature from Mild to Modest and put another move in the fourth moveslot. Why running Drain Punch when you have Giga Drain? Acid Spray is nasty because it will almost guarantee that foe will switch by sharply lowering the foe's Special Defense. Thunderbolt is most reliable STAB and Flamethrower is just good on a Special Attacker. Giga Drain is a Special alternative to Drain Punch.


Altaria

I am not familiar with the Altaria moveset but it looks good. The only thing i would change is Fire Blast instead of Heat Wave. I prefer Dragon Pulse instead of Draco Meteor but you can switch to nullify the Stat lowering. I dunno about Rest paired with a Choice Item... But you look confident about it so.... Yeah. I prefer running the Dragon Dance set with Altaria because he works better with a Physical set. If you want me to post it, just comment saying so.

I hope i helped you! I tried out your team.
