PokéBase Meta Pokémon Rate My Team

Well, it's been a while that I haven't made an OU team, as the last one I made was when Genesect was released. Who is in this team, obviously, because he's my all-time favorite Pokemon (Curse you, GameFreak for giving Slow Start to my baby .-.). Well, even though he's my favorite Pokemon, I really needed a Genesect counter. UberPwnage (UP) found a great one on ErickHill's question, and I am using that Pokemon who is Rotom-H. I have a Defensive core (Jellicent and Jirachi), paired with a very strong VoltTurn core (Rotom-H and Genesect) and I also added a Dragon destroyer (Mamoswine). For the last member, I struggled a bit. I needed a Special attacker, and I really wanted a Dragon. I went with a very unconventional but awesome Hydreigon set. Here's the team!

The team: ![Mamoswine][1] Mamoswine (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Thick Fat EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Ice Shard - Icicle Crash - Earthquake - Stone Edge ![Genesect][2] Genesect @ Choice Scarf Trait: Download EVs: 8 Atk / 248 SAtk / 252 Spd Hasty Nature (+Spd, -Def) - U-turn - Flamethrower - Ice Beam - Thunderbolt ![Jellicent][3] Jellicent (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Water Absorb EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk) - Scald - Hex - Will-O-Wisp - Recover ![Jirachi][4] Jirachi @ Leftovers Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 252 HP / 32 Atk / 224 SDef Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk) - Stealth Rock - Iron Head - Zen Headbutt - Wish ![Hydreigon][5] Hydreigon (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Draco Meteor - Fire Blast - Tailwind - Roost Well, this guy is my MVP. I can't count the number of times this guy has sweeped the opponent's entire team. It also has a very nice surprise effect. **Tailwind** makes him, and my whole team go faster. **Draco Meteor** hits very hard, and not much can tank one apart from Blissey and Chansey. Even at -2, it can nail me some OHKOs. **Fire Blast** is chosen over secondary STAB attack because it can downright OHKO everything in Sun. **Roost** is very reliable recovery. EVs give me maximum sweeping abilities, while Modest Nature over Timid because of Tailwind. **Life Orb** is the best Item in this situation, as Specs would be useless with Roost and Tailwind. ![Rotom-H][6] I have hands! (Rotom-H) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Overheat - Volt Switch - Thunderbolt - Trick Rotom-H is the best Genesect counter out there. He resists all of normal Scarfed Genesect's moves, and can resist to the rare Giga Drain / HP Ground variants. Only kind of Genesect that can take him down is Techno Blast [Water] variants and HP [Water] variants. The question is: Who uses those? And the answer is: ME! But still, I don't think anyone uses those outside of Rain, and even there. **Overheat** roasts Genesect, and a lot of other Pokemon. **Volt Switch** provides momentum to my team, and makes a VolTurn with Genesect. **Thunderbolt** is additional STAB and is perfect for if I want to stay in. **Trick** can screw walls up, though I'm thinking of replacing it with HP [Grass]. Not sure.

Can I ask why you Special Attack EVs on Jirachi when you have no SPecial moves?
Ooops .-.
Also, Stockpile Gastrodon can pester this team. You can fix it by running Energy Ball on Jellicent or Giga Drain on Genesect. Or HP Grass on Rotom-H.
Gastrodon? I haven't seen him yet. If I see him and it causes problems to me, I'll consider your suggestions. Thanks, though :P
JCM, it looks like you found another HP water Genesect user.... ME! :P
Nobody uses Techno Blast because a LO HP Water does more damage.
But HP Water is useful on Rain Genesect.
Yeah, I used it on my Rain team too. But Rock Polish Techno Blast is AWESOME.
