PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

I am currently making an USUM Super Singles (no legendaries) Battle Tree team and I need some help deciding what to have. I'm already using Metagross-Mega as it just wrecks and I need: a Special Attacker (Choiced or Otherwise), and something else that's not called Aegislash, Toxapex or Pyukumuku (AKA a wall). Also, any help with the Metagross would be appreciated (moves, EVs, nature etc). Thanks!

Metagross @ Metagrossite
Ability: Tough Claws
Evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
Ivs: 0 SpA
- Bullet Punch
- Meteor Mash
- Zen Headbutt
- Earthquake

Note: Do the AI use entry hazards ( Stealth Rock, Spikes, T-Spikes)? I was thinking of Volcarona.

In general, Pokebase isn't here to help you build competitive battling teams. You can try using the RMT or something.
Oh, I just thought:
PokeBase=Advice and Team Cores
RMT=Entire Competetive Teams
I'm not saying you're wrong because you might be right, but I just thought
Pokebase=questions that can be answered by copy-pasting from Bulbapedia
RMT=entire competitive teams
Yeah ok. Sorry if I sound grouchy, it's been a long day
Super late note: this is technically a thread, don't 'BA' any answers please.

Setup sweepers like Kartana or Naganadel are really good (I got my Naganadel from the shiny poipole card event thingy) bc the computer players in the battle tree arent that good so you can usually use swords dance or Nasty Plot on them. I like Naganadel better bcuz you can use the z crystal and Draco meteor and it’s really strong plus he has Beast boost but I guess kartana works to.

Also they do use hazards but it’s ok because you can just lead with volcorona :)

So they do use SR? Or just Spikes / T-Spikes?
Ye they use stealth rocks I’ve seen it before
All of the Tapus, Mega Salamence, Mega Lucario, Mega Alakazam, Naganadel, Blaziken, Mimikyu, and Greninja-Ash have worked for me. Shuckle can be used with Sticky Web, Toxic, Infestation, and Protect and stall well because most Teams don't carry Taunt or Defog. I get to 50+ win-streaks with these Pokemon, but it is also about knowing and having strategies for the NPC's movesets. :P
