UUmbrigus Team -- Suggestions?

2 votes

Blah, This is a UU team that I've been using a lot recently. Works pretty decently, although it lost to Mew's UU team which is completely unacceptable. :c But yeah, I've got a nice Umbreon + Cofagrigus core that Spoink gave me the idea about. Initially had weezing in that spot, but cofagrigus works nicely there, Also have a nice Volt-turn core for momentum. This team doesn't use any hazards or spinner and if the opponent gets some of his hazards up, I'm pretty much screwed. And lastly I have a specs togekiss I stole this set from Omyfuga he's a boss at UU so I figured it must be good. Y'know? Any who, give me your much appreciated suggestions in a comment or answer. Thanks! :7


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

  • Hidden Power [Fighting]
  • Shadow Ball
  • Rest
  • Will-O-Wisp

Defensive wall. I've used the calm mind variant before and I liked it, just haven't tried it on this team yet. Rest heals people who try to toxic me, and then I can just go into umbreon and heal bell away.


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

  • Heal Bell
  • Wish
  • Toxic
  • Psychic

My special wall, pretty standard. Wish passes, stalls, and heal bells. My main problem is that last moves lot, I know people run payback, and foul play, but I don't really see any point in them.. I just use psychic to hit those fighting types. Although it doesn't hit hard sometimes it scares the more frail ones out.


@ Life Orb
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)

  • Extrasensory
  • Volt Switch
  • Aura Sphere
  • Hidden Power [Ice]

Part of my volturn core. He can pretty much out speed anything without a scarf, aside from weavile, ambipom, ect. Life orb because I want to hit hard. I've heard the calm mind raikou is very good, but i've just haven't had the time to try it out, + this set has been working rather well for me. Although I find it works better with hazard support so you can get a mini raikou sweep. :3


@ Choice Scarf
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • U-Turn
  • Flare Blitz
  • Rock Slide
  • Superpower

My u-turn scouter, I actually use rock slide over earthquake because zapdos tends to be a bit tricky for this team. But yeah, this guy doesn't need much explaining...


@ Choice Specs
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Tri Attack
  • Grass Knot
  • Flamethrower
  • Air Slash

Specs togekiss, so uncommon, but wrecks big time. Grass knot is for those common leads like swampert and claydol, ect, Tri Attack is STAB, but idk when I tried to use this on smogon it told me he can't get Tri Attack? But he does? Doesn't he? Some other variants are Fire Blast > Flamethrower, but I'm the guy who always misses so I find flamethrower better in most cases because it's going to be hitting hard regardless with specs. I also could use trick, to cripple those special walls like umbreon, ect. ect.


@ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 64 Atk / 192 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Recover
  • Waterfall
  • Earthquake
  • Curse

Lastly we got Quagsire. He's my only water / electric immunity. I've gone back and forth about 50 time whether or not to put unaware or water absorb on it. I choose water absorb because it is my only resistance and most people don't expect it. The only thing that I don't like really is that Zapdos w/ HP [Grass] demolishes it, and i have nothing I can hit it with.

Okay, nice team Riles :] i got some quick tips cause there's not really much to say otherwise.
- Haze over HP Fighting on Cofagrigus, otherwise our beloved Umbrigus is setup fodder :(
- i see the idea of psychic, but it just won't do anything most of the time. So Protect/Foul Play/Payback are all good options.
- Raikou looks good.
- Darmanitan also looks good.
- Togekiss... yeah, fine.
- Quagsire is pretty outclassed without Unaware. Swampert can do the same things and set up SR which your team is lacking. Just a thought :]
Lovely suggestions, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and go ahead and try out swampert. & Haze + Foul play on Umbrigus.
1 u-turn and 1 volt switch is a nice volt turn core
Raikou must be Rash, so I edited the nature.
I was planning on rating this, but this is a solid team and I'm not as good at UU as OU/Uber. So if I tried I would look something like this http://www.buzzlol.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/I-have-no-idea-what-im-doing....jpg
