PokéBase Meta Pokémon Rate My Team
0 votes

I've always loved ninetales, but never got around to using him, or making a sun team. I've been posting a lot of teams lately, but if you guys are going to rate one, rate this one.

ArmadilloElephant (Donphan) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Ice Shard
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Rapid Spin

This would be my lead. Looks pretty good, can take hits, and hit pretty hard too. I haven't tested this team, but this looked like a good option for getting up rocks, and rapid spinning. He's actually my first OU rapid spinner.

tree (Exeggutor) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Psyshock
- SolarBeam
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Synthesis

I must say, I was surprised to see when I found this guy in the NU teir. I looked at OU, thinking this is where I'd find him. With a frown, I was shocked to find he wasn't in UU either! When I reached NU, I was appalled. This is a sun sweeper ready to be unleashed! What are we waiting for? I'm ready to use him to his greatest extent. People get WAY to worried about other weather teams, and give their Pokes Energy ball instead of SolarBeam, but I'm not going to get to worried. Psyshock is some nice STAB, and HP fire will do some nice damage to those Steel Types, and his ice type weakness. This guy has some natural special bulk, so I gave him Synthesis, which works great in the sun and restores HP.

REUNICLUS#2 (Latias) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
- Refresh
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam

Behold my magnificent creation!!! I present to you REUNICLUS#2! Latias? This is no latias. It's simply a Levitating reuniclus, that has the dragon type added on, has the bolt beam combo, and some better defenses. I'm relying on the defense + leftovers to help me since I don't have Recover/Wish. In battle, it seems like my old Calm Minding Latias's only die of poison, so I'm going to fix that with refresh. I'm excited to try him out.

Jella-FYSH (Jellicent) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 236 Def / 20 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Shadow Ball
- Surf
- Recover
- Toxic

Surf in the sun? Come on guys, it's not that bad. It's basically riding him of his STAB. This is my toxic staller, and a guy to take the water attacks. He does nicely in the rain too, if I ever come to that scenario.

The Beast (Conkeldurr) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Fire Punch
- Bulk Up
- Ice Punch
- Mach Punch

I thought a sheer force conkeldurr would be a good idea. I needed another Physical attacker (The last thing I want is to be walled by blissey) and this guy can abuse Fire Punch. Conkeldurr has always done well, and he's not about to stop in the sun.

SlyFox (Ninetales) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drought
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Nasty Plot
- Flamethrower
- SolarBeam
- Will-O-Wisp

The Ninetales I've always wanted! He's my sweeper, hitting REALLY hard with Flamethrower, and takin' out Ground/Rock/Water types with Sola' powered style. Will-O-Wisp will make his defense higher. However, I don't want to run into Heatran any time soon.

i dont really like it o3o...  2 count em 2 of your pokemon benefit from the sun. And one gets the opposite of benefit. And i suggest hex > shadow ball and ice beam/protect > surf on jelly
2 Pokemon that benefit? Everyone either benefits or provides good synergy with the team. Ninetales benefits with his fire attacks and solarbeam. Conkeldurr benefits by destroying special walls, and abusing Fire-Punch. Jellicent soaks up the water attacks that can hurt my ninetales, and donphan. Latias provides coverage on types that can hurt a sun team such as ground, and water. Exeggutor gets a chlorophyll boost, solarbeam, and synthesis boost! And donphan can take water type attacks much better in the sun! Time to open your eyes Pika, for not every sun benefit goes into the offense.
Wow. Congrats, these have to be the worst nicknames you've come up with yet :]
I choose you! tree!
