Hippowdon @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP, 92 Def, 164 SDef
Careful Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Toxic
- Earthquake
- Slack Off

This is Gigaslash’s signature Hippowdon (in other words credit to gigaslash for this monster), and I know for a fact that this thing is crazy bulky, and a great sand setter. Stealth Rock is rather obvious, and toxic is for stalling. Earthquake is STAB, and Slack Off is for toxic stalling and recovery.


Stoutland @ Choice Band

Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Return
- Pursuit
- Crunch
- Superpower

Stoutland is my revenge killer, and with sand in effect, his speed reaches an insane 518, and with the choice band, his attack is 492, meaning he hits fast, and hard. Return is main STAB, while Wild Charge covers flying and water. Crunch hits psychics and ghosts, while superpower eliminates rock and steel types that resist return.


Alakazam @ Life Orb

Trait: Magic Gaurd
EVs: 252 SAtk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Psyshock
- Shadow Ball
- Substitute
- Focus Blast

Alakazam is my special sweeper, thanks to Magic Gaurd he doesn’t take damage from his life orb or the sandstorm, not to mention he can’t be damaged by status or hazards. Psyshock takes care of special walls, while shadow ball cleans out ghosts. Substitute stops him from being revenged so easily, and Focus Blast is coverage against dark types.


Gastrodon @ Leftovers

Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP, 104 Def, 104 SAtk, 48 Spd
Modest Nature
- Stockpile
- Scald
- Earth Power
- Recover

Credit to Uberpwnage on this one. Stockpile makes him pretty much invulnerable, while Recover lets him set it up, and live once it’s up. Scald is STAB, and the burn chance is really helpful, while Earth Power is secondary STAB and additional coverage. is coverage.


Heatran @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Fire Blast
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Earth Power
- Overheat

My Fire absorber and my Sun counter, Choice Scarf Heatran will always be on of my favorite Heatran sets. Fire Blast is main STAB, Hidden Power is coverage against common Heatran switch-ins like Gliscor and Landorus, Earth Power is mainly for Magnezone and other Heatran, and Overheat is just insanely powerful.


Scizor @ Leftovers

Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 HP, 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
- Bug Bite
- Superpower

Swords Dance boosts his attack to sweeping levels, and Bullet Punch serves as main STAB. Bug Bite is secondary STAB, and Superpower provides additional coverage, and hits Steel types such as Ferrothorn for decent damage.


Gigaslash will be answering this, but you can feel free to answer it as well.

Why would Gigaslash answer this?
Oh, and i like it.
Is this the counter team to challenge my gym? xP
Gigaslash is petty good with sand, so I asked him to answer it.
@Dr.flame: While I do intend to challenge you with this team it is not an intentional counter team, I just wanted a to make a sand team and here it is.
Hippowdon
won't do anything on Skarmory
His job isnt to take skarmory, it's to set up sand and be a monster, he can't touch gengar either. But magnezone takes skarmory with ease, and stoutland runs circles around gengar.

Best answer

Here I am to answer! Glad you've started winning swag.. that's wonderful news!

hippowdonHippowdon: All I can say is WOW! Whoever gave you this idea is a genius...

stoutlandStoutland: I noticed when researching this guy that he got sand rush, and I was surprised! This one looks particularly awesome. Sandslash could do the same, but not with that great of a moveset and speed. I even think Stoutland would be fine with an Adamant nature, seeing that his speed is unnecessarily high. He looks great.

alakazamAlakazam: The basic Alakazam set. I like him, and I think you were right about giving him Modest instead of timid, Alakazam is fast enough already. Remember, if you ever wanted to try him out, my reuniclus works good in the sand too and would be good to counter your fighting weakness, you already know his set if you wanted to try it.

gastrodonGastrodon: Uberpwnage IS a genius, and I use that same gastrodon set. He looks great-- nothing to add.

magnezoneMagnezone: I've never used this guy, but he looks good. You could always switch Substitute for volt switch. He doesn't seem to have the greatest speed, but what you've given him seems to be enough to outspeed who you intend to counter. You could consider giving him HP EVs if you wanted.

ferrothornFerrothorn: I like this guy, he is a good wall, gets up good entry hazards, and overall seems to work well on your team. You could always switch him for a rock type seeing you do not have any, like Terrakion but I honestly don't think you need it.

I know this is a short RMT but there's not much I can add.

I can see why you're starting to win, which is why I've decided not to change much. Good Job with your latest team!
