0 votes

I am not back yet but i will be soon.I had one day off from PT so i thought i would throw together one team and try it out.This team has one 3/4 of all the matches.I usually win with at least 3 pokemon left so it is working well.

Persian (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Fake Out
- Bite
- U-turn
- Return
Oh how i love this persian. Fake out can hit so hard neutraly it is ridiculous with stab,life orb and the technician boost. i love it. U turn to keep him alive and do damage on the switch.If i predict they will switch to a ghost i go bite. Return to hit rediculously hard

Haunter (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Shadow Ball
- Substitute
- Thunderbolt
- Giga Drain
haunter is the only pokemon i have used before. He is a threat since he can hit so many types and is pretty darn fast. giga drain for recovery.Thunderbolt for flying types.Shadow ball is stab.

Skuntank (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Aftermath
EVs: 216 HP / 252 Atk / 40 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Sucker Punch
- Pursuit
- Poison Jab
- Substitute
Skuntank hits so hard. pursuit for annoying ghosties.Sucker punch for priority stab.Poison jab is stab.substitute is for haunter.He sets up a sub.I set up a sub. Surprises a lot of people.

Ludicolo (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Scald
- Substitute
- Ice Beam
- Leech Seed
standard sub seed.I prefer ice beam and scald because i can now hit tangrowth who was causing this team some problems. It also helps with flying types and physical ludicolo is because most people expect special so it throws people off.

Gardevoir (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Trace
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Psychic
- Heal Bell
- Wish
- Thunder Wave
Thunder wave helps her be able to get wish off easier since the speed is lower and psycic is stab

Sawk (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Close Combat
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Toxic

Cool team. I like how you've used a few original pokemon, the ones less seen in NU. I have a few improvements, though, that will definitely help it win more battles.



Persian
Looks awesome. I love this guy, he's like a mini Ambipom :') I would give him a Jolly nature though, as otherwise he's at risk of being outsped by threats like Cincinno.



Haunter
Nice. For Substitute + 3 attacks though, Life Orb wears you down all too quickly. Black Sludge and Expert Belt both make good replacements for that. Also, Thunderbolt and Giga Drain don't give you the best coverage, and allow Skuntank to walk all over you. Shadow Ball, Sludge Bomb and Hidden Power [Ground] are the better choices.



Skuntank
Skuntank looks great, I like what you did with Substitute, but you know, Taunt is always an option.



Ludicolo
Ludicolo! :] One of my faves, although I believe it makes your team LU (RU) on PO, which would be why you've come up against Tangrowth so much. The set looks great, although Giga Drain gives you nice healing, and also gets better coverage with Ice Beam. That's why I run it over Scald.



Gardevoir
Man, Gardevoir is great. Don't know why people don't use it more often. Anyway, this looks like a really good team supporting set, except for one thing - it doesn't have Will-O-Wisp! It's great on her (him? lol) to patch up her weaker defense, and also provide passive damage. Replace Thunder Wave for it. Surprisingly, base 80 speed is really not bad in NU, much much better than Musharna and the like.



Sawk
Lmao. I know Sawk's movepool isn't exactly overflowing with options, but Toxic? On a scarf set? I know Smogon suggest it, but that was before BW2's move tutor additions. He now gets the ever so helpful elemental punches. Plus, Mold Breaker is awesome for him, especially as your team doesn't have a spinner. I'd go with Close Combat, Ice Punch, Earthquake, and Stone Edge/Payback/ThunderPunch/some other filler move.


Well that's me done, hope I helped :]

Lol I know on sawk I just wasn't sure what to put in. I thought elemental punch maybe but seeing a choiced sawk use toxic on you would be hilarious.
