PokéBase Meta Pokémon Rate My Team
3 votes

This weekend I've been watching the VGC Finals and I saw a Trick Room team so I decided to make one myself.

Cresselia @ Sitrus Berry
Trait: Levitate
Sassy Nature
220 HP / 108 Def / 180 SpAtk
-Ice Beam
-Calm Mind/ Helping Hand
-Trick Room

This is the signature Cresselia of Ray Rizzo, so credits to him.

The changes I made:
Psychic over Psyshock due the loss in power and to hit Fighting types harder.
Ice Beam to handle with opposing Dragons.
Trick Room to get this team started.
Calm Mind/Helping Hand to boost my Special Attack and Special Defense. Helping Hand can turn my partners attack into a OHKO.
Not sure which one to choose :/

Cresselia's partner in crime:
Hariyama @ Flame Orb
Trait: Guts
Brave Nature
252 Atk / 124 Def / 132 SpD
-Fake Out
-Close Combat
-Rock Slide

Standard Trick Room lead.
Fake Out to set up Trick Room. Close Combat for STAB and to take care of opposing Steel, Dark and Rock types (Heatran and T-Tar) Close Combat is a solid OHKO on T-Tar even through Chople Berry when Guts is activated. Chople Berry Heatran is a solid 2HKO. Rock Slide to hit both opponents and for the flinch. Also for the Flying types that may threaten my team. Detect for getting Guts activated if I'm facing double Ghosts as lead.

After these two I needed something to hit bulky Ghost and Psychic.
Again credits to Ray Rizzo for this set.

Hydreigon @ Dragon Gem
Trait: Levitate
60 HP / 252 SpAtk / 196 Speed
-Draco Meteor
-Dark Pulse

Draco Meteor + Dragon Gem kills everything that doesn't resist it. Dark Pulse to hit those bulky Ghost and Psychic. Considering Dark Gem over Dragon Gem though. Flamethrower for the Steels like Metagross. Heatran gets killed by Hariyama. Protect to stall out Trick Room. Also Hydreigon's Typing allow me to free switch into a Psychic attack aimed at Hariyama and hit back with Dark Pulse.

But this made me kinda weak to Dragon types so I choose to run a Metagross of my own.

Metagross @ Lum Berry/ Life Orb/ Choice Band
Trait: Clear Body
Adamant Nature
252 HP / 116 Atk / 4 Def / 136 SpDef
-Meteor Mash
-Zen Headbutt
-Hammer Arm/ Protect

Meteor Mash and Zen Headbutt as STAB. Earthquake for opposing Steels and hitting two pokemon instead of one. Hammer Arm if Life Orb or Choice Band is chosen as item. Or Protect to prevent Heat Waves and other Earthquakes. Here is Lum Berry prefered Item. Also to prevent annoying status on my Metagross.

This is pretty the same as Ray Rizzo's team he used at VGC 2012. Made a few changes and wanna see if this will be succesful. I know it's gonna get a hard time against Rain teams so I needed to fix that somehow

Pretty good. Great synergy, great movesets for the BS
Psyshock doesn't actually have that much less power than Psychic, it just does more damage to pokemon with higher SDef.
But like was said, fighting types usually have higher Def
Thats why I chose Psychic :P
