Now it's my turn for a UU team (PO)

1 vote

Please note that I'm going by PokemonDb tiers. Apparently in PO Lucario is OU.

Graddaddy (Xatu) (M) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Magic Bounce
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Psyshock
- Hidden Power [Flying]
- Shadow Ball
- Giga Drain

Comes in and blocks all those threats like Cradily, Aerodactlyl, Donphan and crew by bouncing off toxic and S-rock with magic bounce. Psyshock is to piss off Chansey, Giga Drain is recovery and getting on Donphan, HP flying is decent STAB, Shadow balls are coverage.

Your Mom (Cradily) (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Suction Cups
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Stealth Rock
- Toxic
- Giga Drain
- Stockpile

This guy is awesome. He has great defenses can set up rocks and stall. Stockpile is to beef that defense up even more, Toxic is erm.., Giga Drain is a surefire way to finish them off and to recover. btw this guy is disturbing.

Epicness (Lucario) (M) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Steadfast
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Vacuum Wave
- Nasty Plot
- Aura Sphere
- Dark Pulse

This is the classic Lucario. The movesets pretty self-explanitory.

zombie (Archeops) (M) @ Flight Gem

Trait: Defeatist
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Acrobatics
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- U-turn

My physical sweeper. Once again not much explanation is needed tackles a few pokes then defeatist kills him.

Magneton @ Eviolite

Trait: Analytic
EVs: 128 Def / 252 SAtk / 128 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Thunderbolt
- Flash Cannon
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Magnet Rise

Eviolite Tank. T-bolt is STAB, Flash Cannon is the other STAB and for his horrible movepool, HP ice is coverage, and due to me not being able for air ballon Magnet rise.

FromAHole (Durant) (M) @ Wide Lens

Trait: Hustle
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- X-Scissor
- Stone Edge
- Dig
- Iron Head

Physical Sweeper. X-scissor is STAB and can OHKO an average Hydregeon, Iron head is also STAB, Stone edge and dig do the rest. Due to me hating truant I used hustle+wide lenses so I can keep my accuracy and get a boost.

If you are trying to counter those leads you should have a super effective move against Aerodactyle because he offensive and is faster than you. Try HP(Ice/Electric/Rock) because Flying STAB is not very useful in this instance. Also if they see an Xatu they are not going to try to set up unless you are lucky enough to be fighting a noob or someone who forgot try putting him as the second Pokemon and switch him in when you think they are going to set up.



Not bad but take into consideration that the opposing team is likely going to have a Stealth-rock lead and your Xatu is going to reflect them back at them. So Stealth-rock is not that useful try Earth-power for some more coverage or maybe HP(Fire) if you want to use him as a lead/bait for them to try to set up and you change to Xatu.



I must say that is not the best use of Lucario. You should replace one your current offensive moves(Anyone would be fine to replace) with Psychic to cover your Fighting weakness.



Nothing really to say about this guy the same set as everyone uses.



Good but I would consider switching Magnet-rise with Reflect or Light-screen for team support.



Ok DIG?! really? Dig is almost completely useless because the opponent can switch to an Immune/Resistant Pokemon, it is especially useless when it is being used by a Pokemon who takes neutral(this case)/Super-effective from Earthquake. Durant Should switch Dig for Hone-claws which both boosts attack and cancels out the negative effects of Hustle. You could also switch Wide lens for Focus-sash if you want.

Guys, don't downvote without a comment saying why you're voting.
magneton has magnet rise because of his horrible ground weakness, remember after nasty plot lucario can still deal off some good neutral damage with aura sphere as he's nothing without nasty plot, but I voted this back up
Magneton is too slow to use Magnet Rise though Tyson, anyone who wanted to use Earthquake, Earth Power, Etc. Would have already done it by the time you used it.
And if I gave i reflect/light screen they would've used e-quake too by then.
That's in a completely different situation though.
Those are for general team support, not to avoid Ground moves.
Where as Magnet Rise is to avoid ground moves, which would strike first.
Meaning it's pretty much pointless.
