Here we go!


Linoone

Linoone @ Sitrus Berry
Trait: Gluttony
EVs: 252 Atk/ 216 Spd/ 40 HP
Jolly Nature (+Spd,-SAtk)

  • Belly Drum
  • ExtremeSpeed
  • Seed Bomb
  • Shadow Claw

He's a pretty weird lead. He doesn't set up rocks or any other kind of Entry Hazards. He just surprises other leads. While they set up S-Rock or rush to switch out, i use Belly Drum. I then choose between ExtremeSpeed, which is STAB and OHKO'es when unresisted, Seed Bomb for Rock types and Shadow Claw for Ghosties. Pure Steel types are a real pain the butt as they resist all of these attacks. Mawile, Pawniard, Wormadam (Trash Cloak) and Klang are the only ones in NU who resist to this moveset.


Magmar

Magmar @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Vital Spirit
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Fire Blast
  • Focus Blast
  • Psychic
  • Hidden Power [Grass]

My new NU favorite. I was trying this guy out and he's extremely powerful but awfully underrated because of his NFE status. This EV Spread and Nature allows him to outspeed a Scarfed Adamant Sawk... which is pretty damn rare but still a threat. Fire Blast is STAB and often OHKO'es when unresisted. It helped me sweep many unprepared teams. Focus Blast is coverage against Rock types while Psychic is extended coverage. HP Grass is coverage against Rock, Ground and Water types.


Seadra

Seadra (M) @ Eviolite
Trait: Poison Point
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Scald
  • Ice Beam
  • Toxic
  • Rest

The only Pokemon that doesn't make my team Hyper Hyper Offense. He is my premium Physical Wall, reaching a huge total of over 400 with Eviolite. I put 4 EVs in Special Attack so he can hit a bit hard since he doesn't hit hard. Scald is STAB and has a nice chance to burn. Ice Beam is coverage against Grass types. Toxic is for Stalling while Rest is super reliable recovery.


Mawile

Mawile (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 Atk/ 248 Spd/ 8 HP
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Sucker Punch
  • Iron Head
  • Fire Fang
  • ThunderPunch

So this guy is my other Physical sweeper. He has good late-game sweeper. Sucker Punch finishes off weakened foes while Iron Head is STAB and normally 2HKO'es when unresisted. Fire Fang and ThunderPunch are just coverage moves. All of these moves are boosted by Sheer Force.


Golurk

Golurk @ Life Orb
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Shadow Punch
  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge
  • Rock Polish

So i like Golurk a lot and i wanted to try something new on him. Rock Polish turns him into an incredible sweeper, boosting his Speed. Earthquake and Shadow Punch are STAB while Stone Edge is addition coverage.


Rotom-S

Rotom-S @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd/ 4 SDef
Timid Nature (+Spd,-Atk)

  • Thunderbolt
  • Volt Switch
  • Air Slash
  • Trick

Will finish descriptions later..... And this team has won every single game except one.

I'd say Simisear over Magmar. The ability to outspeed Scarfed base 100s is pretty sweet.
But i love Magmar! xD
That Linoone scared me. Very dangerous ad creative. Hey,check out my NU team, I would really appreciate it if you could check it out.
I just did. It looks pretty good. I'll rate it.
Thanks. Its still a work in progess. I can really use some expert advice.

Best answer

I'll do my best in answering.

linooneLinoone: Looks like a good set. Looks like it could work pretty good too. Just know when to set up, because after a belly drum you're only at half HP. Most people will probably see this belly drum coming, and attack. If you wanted to make him completely "Hyper Offensive" you could try an Adamant nature with 4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spe/ Otherwise he looks pretty good to me. Once you've got the belly drum off, not many things that resist Extremespeed will outspeed you, so you'll be fine using Seed Bomb and Shadow Claw. Looks pretty good.

magmarMagmar: Basically everything is good, but as I look at Magmar, he has a much greater Physical movepool. Just an Idea, but you could try one of these:

Magmar @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Vital Spirit
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spe/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -Sp.Atk)

-Flare Blitz
-Thunder Punch
-Brick Break/ Cross Chop
-Dual Chop

Here you can have some different type coverage and a bit better accuracy. --Just an idea.

seadraSeadra: Looks like a good Physical wall, but doesn't look to have the greatest of Special defense.. You could either give him some specially defensive EVs or just stay clear of Special Attackers. Looks like a good staller, but don't let people set up while you're sleeping.

mawileMawile: Like pretty much everything, except for fire fang. Ice Punch! This way you get bolt/beam coverage and more power. Plus it still gets the sheer force boost. Also, if you wanted you could switch out suckerpunch for Crunch, because it gets the sheer force boost, and more power points, and is more reliable.

golurkGolurk: Definitely Hyper Offensive. Looks great, just note that you're not going to be THAT fast. Since your not THAT fast you could just make him a tank. You could try this EV spread: 252 HP/ 252 Atk/ 4 SpD

rotom-fanRotom-S: Hmm.. Most people end up keeping the choice scarf to work to their advantage... but I like it. It's unique, and definitely unexpected. Volt Switch AND thunderbolt probably aren't necessary. Maybe you could have shadow ball for the many Psychics that exist in NU.

Best of luck to you and your team!
