Riles UU Team - Suggestions?

1 vote

So I've got a UU team here. (A tier that I usually don't do well in) Surprisingly this team has been doing well. Trachy and I had a little collaboration about this team. Currently it's 7/9 which for me is AMAZING. My two losses came down to Scarfed Imposter Ditto's which is the most cheapest thing in the game and they need to ban it. But yeah, give me your suggestions. Thanks! :7


@ Life Orb
Trait: Defiant
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Swords Dance
  • Sucker Punch
  • Iron Head
  • Low Kick

If this Pokemon gets +2 Bisharp reaches 766 Attack, which means a STAB Life Orb will be doing a hell of a lot of damage to any Pokemon. Bisharp is out sped by mostly every Pokemon that threatens him, so there isn't even a need to run Rock Polish. Tracy suggested Low kick over Brick Break, I haven't exactly noticed a difference yet, but they both work well in the end.


@ Black Sludge
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SpA)

  • Brave Bird
  • U-Turn
  • Super Fang
  • Taunt

My Mienshao & Scrafty counter / Setup stopper / hazard stopper. Crobat can out speed a +1 Max speed jolly Scrafty, then precede to OHKO with a STAB Brave Bird. Super Fang for bulky Pokemon. & U-Turn I'm considering replacing with roost solely because Crobat is frail, and can work well if I have my toxic spikes in play.


(M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Flare Blitz
  • ExtremeSpeed
  • Close Combat
  • Wild Charge

Arcanine adds some nice synergy to this team absorbing fire type attack aimed at Roserade and Bisharp. His ground weakness is covered by Cresselia. As for his moves, pretty standard although I would like to try the bulky morning sun set. With his EV spread he can out speed offensive roserade.


@ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Calm Mind
  • Scald
  • Rest
  • Sleep Talk

CroCune, this Pokemon annoyed me so much, I decided to use it. And may I say, I see why it's so popular, Max Defensive allows for it to take physical moves for days. If you haven't used this Pokemon then I highly suggest you use it. Since Toxic Spikes are my only form of hazards, I don't run the roar suicune for it would be pretty pointless.


(F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 108 SAtk / 148 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Leaf Storm
  • Sludge Bomb
  • Toxic Spikes
  • Rest

Roserade completes my Fire-Water-Grass offensive core which is nice. She can set up Toxic Spikes leaf storm other Suicunes which can be a big problem to ANY team. Her EV spread gives it some bull in special defense, while still being able to hit reasonably hard. My status absorber.

(F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Moonlight
  • Calm Mind
  • Psyshock
  • Ice Beam

Since Mew has left us for OU, cresselia is the next best thing, if not better! Cresselia can take ANY physical hit you want to dish out, then either setup or moonlight to toxic stall you some more. I originally had a registeel in this team, but Tracy suggested I used a bisharp instead. Registeel + Cresselia make for a monster defensive core covering each others weaknesses, aside from fire attacks which arcanine can take.

Ugh. Ditto.
Excellent team! The only imperfections are not having enough team helpers and spinners.Get rid of Arcanine's life orb and replace it with leftovers.
This should be a comment.
I think Freeze Shock did this many times.
Ditto in UU? You've got to be kidding me. OU definitely. Hell, I can see Uber.
Well, the best way to deal with Ditto is to use Zoroark, Substitute, or Choice Scarf.
Ditto is actually NU, but people who like to be annoying / have no skill / are cheap as hell. Use him mainly to counter scrafty so they don't setup.
