PokéBase Meta Pokémon Rate My Team
0 votes

Okay so I'm getting back into Ou and I'm rather enjoying it, though from when i left there seems to have been a massive increase in Rain teams.
So I'm making a Sun, Sand and Hail team using interesting cores and original Pokemon.
I like making original Weather teams and though i wouldn't say this is original nor my recent sand team but its certainly different.
So Yeah this team abuses the use of Choice items, all but two Pokemon are choiced and I'm not gonna lie its been working out pretty good.

The only problems i have encountered so far is a Toxicroak problem, though i do have a good counter in Skarmoary.
The team was built around mMgnezone really who I'm hoping to use in my Hail team as well.
I then built a core around Skarmoary and Cresselia making the defensive core.

Obviously you are more experienced at this than I am Blob, but what's your logic in using 2 Steel types, which have a x2 weakness to Fire on a Sun team, a weather that boosts Fire moves and makes your Steel types more vulnerable? that is the only issue I see. you may have some logic behind it, and if that is the case, you can DV the shitake out of this if you so desire. but I fail to see the merit to that choice.

Steel types are great in sun, yeh they do have a fire weakness but I have Pokemon to absorb that.
They completely wall rain teams and magnets one gets the hp fire boost where as skarmory is there to set up rocks.
They work just like they would in any other team after all it's not like your gonna keep them in for an overheat.
That's good to know in case i should ever decide to build a weather team. everything else looks great ;)
