PokéBase Meta Pokémon Rate My Team

Introduction: Hey, guys, it's me, JCM, with another RMT. It's been a while that I haven't played NU, as I was busy with my Ubers and UU teams. When I came back to play, I realized that the Metagame didn't change that much. Another thing I realized was how much I went with the standard Pokemon, and not thinking outside the box. That is exactly what I did with this team. I thought outside of the box.

The team: ![Gothorita][23] Gothorita (M) @ Eviolite Trait: Shadow Tag EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk) - Rest - Calm Mind - Psychic - Future Sight The weirdest Gothorita set that I fetched from Smogon from another Québécois called Sweet Jesus. With Eviolite and maxed out SDef, this gal can tank Special hits all day. She takes out Gurdurr and Sawk with ease. **Calm Mind** boosts my SDef to great levels. **Psychic** is STAB, and can hit hard at +1, or even without a boost. I know that many people will be like ''Future Sight sucks''. No, it doesn't. The guy can accumulate damage, even if I switch. It's STAB, and wow, it hits hard. **Rest** is her only method of recovery, and once I have a couple of CM's under my belt... The opponent won't be able to hurt me much. I use Gothorita as a wall killer, as I can successfully trap every wall in NU and start using CM on them. With Rest recovering my health while getting rid of annoying Status, I can win stall wars easily against Alomomola, Lickilicky and Amoonguss. Especially Amoonguss. ![Golem][24] Golem (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Sturdy EVs: 212 HP / 252 Atk / 44 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Stealth Rock - Earthquake - Rock Blast - Sucker Punch Yep, he's the only guy on my team who is not underrated. His dual STABs are extremely useful to my team. **Stealth Rock** is very useful to my team. As my team's offense is weaker than normal (Gurdurr, Musharna, Sawk, etc). **Earthquake** is very powerful STAB, while **Rock Blast** completes the EdgeQuake coverage. It is used over Stone Edge because it can break through Substitutes. **Sucker Punch** is very useful priority, and can finish off weakened foes. ![Rotom-F][25] Rotom-F @ Choice Specs Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Volt Switch - Hidden Power [Ice] - Trick - Thunderbolt Yes, Rotom-F. The best Pokemon in the world. xD. This thing is not your everyday freezer, as with Specs and Modest, he reaches a phenomenal 508 SAtk. As an added bonus, he even has STAB on the fearful BoltBeam combination, which only Magnemite resists in NU (Curse you!) xD. **Volt Switch** provides me some momentum, and I can spam it at the beginning of the game to gain just that. **HP Ice** is better than Blizzard as it's guaranteed a hit (without Accuracy modifiers, of course) and can hit hard, despite that base power. **Trick** has the very obvious role of screwing walls, even though Gothorita screws them up. **Thunderbolt** is very strong STAB, and is perfect for if I want to stay in and sweep. Rotom-F still has decent Speed without a Scarf, and he's able to outspeed a lot in the current metagame. ![Golbat][26] Golbat (M) @ Eviolite Trait: Inner Focus EVs: 252 HP / 176 Def / 80 SDef Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk) - Taunt - Roost - Brave Bird - Super Fang Golbat, Golbat, Golbat. This guy is a Defensive monster. He has phenomenal Defenses with Eviolite, and has very nice Speed. **Taunt** can easily shut down any Staller in NU, combined with his high Speed, which makes him an effective stallbreaker. **Roost** is very reliable recovery, and gets rid of all his weaknesses apart from Psychic. **Brave Bird** is pretty hard-hitting STAB and can be used as an emergency attack, especially when I switch into some Fighting types, mainly Superpower Emboar. **Super Fang** is the second thing that makes him a great stallbreaker. Wish + Protect users are pretty common in NU, such as Alomomola and Lickilicky. With Super Fang, he can make those two turns useless. ![Scraggy][27] Scraggy (M) @ Eviolite Trait: Shed Skin EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk) - Rest - Bulk Up - Payback - Drain Punch By far the oddest member of my team, Scraggy has the merit of usually being the last man, or in this case, Pokemon, standing, with Golem. ![Octillery][28] Octillery (M) @ Expert Belt Trait: Sniper EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Water Spout - Surf - Energy Ball - Fire Blast #WILL EDIT DESCRIPTIONS LATER. Also, if you rate, don't give any Pokemon that are used a lot. And I cut out some stuff for the very annoying 8000 characters limit.

Why not nix Golem and add in a Gigalith instead. This way you can make the team be PU and have a much better chance of winning.

Also I would replace Water Spout on Octillery. With that Speed it will be taking a hit before it can get one off, meaning Water Spout will end up being pretty weak. I would add another coverage, Ice Beam to do damage to Altaria and other Dragons (plus more damage to Flying types and a more accurate hit on Grass types) or Charge Beam to get that +1 boost. If you want a high powered Water type attack, just replace Surf for Hydro Pump.
roflol male gothorita roflolmao
Trachy, I battle on PO. NU or PU, it doesn't make any difference. Plus, without Golem's STAB Ground Attacks, I would be missing a lot of coverage. And TBH, I was thinking the exact SAME THING on Octillery, but it actually works.
I see a lot of capital letters lol
Lol, it's just so nobody hides it ^^
Swinub, Chinchou, and Piloswine also resist Boltbeam :D
And Shedinja :D
And no, Piloswine and Swinub don't. Piloswine and Swinub get neutral from Ice xD
Oh wait, my bad, forgot about Thick Fat :P
Theres this amazing new PO glitch where you use a choice item, still get the benefits of that item, and still be able to switch moves. Bulk Up Sawk with a Choice Scarf is monster :3
Die xD
Lovin the team, creative. +1.
Oh, thanks, Ninja. Have you battled Riles yet? Because, you know.?

Posting teambuilding process here, as I don't have any place left:

Teambuilding process:

I always wanted to try Gothitelle, but with his fast banning, I never had the time. I wanted something to shut down Weezing, and a Special Wall. I chose Gothorita as my starting point.


I needed something to make a good Defensive core with it, and something that wasn't used much. The first thing that came to my mind was Golbat who had phenomenal Defenses with Eviolite.

Gothorita Golbat

I always loved Psychic-Fighting-Dark cores, like Musharna-Gurdurr-Skuntank. I then chose another Pokemon that by himself, could complete that core and he was somebody I wanted to try since quite a while. Scraggy.

Gothorita Golbat Scraggy

My team was seriously missing some sheer power. I then chose another Pokemon that I loved and trusted, and has been used in my two previous teams (I didn't post them yet). Rotom-F.

Rotom-F was a good Special Attacker, but I needed another good SAttacker. And I needed something to resist to Water and Ice attacks. I then chose, with the help of Faked Thrower, Octillery, who could fire extremely powerful Water Spouts.

My team was looking nice, but was missing Stealth Rock and a decent Physical Attacker. Even though I wanted to think outside of the box, I needed somebody who was good, so I chose Golem.

Yep, that's my team.
