Some important notes which you need to know:

  • This team, has shinies, so if your eyes hurt, don't sue me.
  • This team is a Sand Team, not a CS Team, ignore det title :D
  • Magicarp and Sunkern FTW.

Yeah, that's it, now to the team and a whole lot of stuff...


So hi there, I'm Flare and I'm bringing you up to date with a really successful OU Sand Team, regardless of what the title says. It is based around my Keldeo-R busting the crap out of some people, mainly big hazards to the team. After series of bashing my head on the table and slapping my self (and falling down the stairs, if Hex see's this), I came to a conclusion about my Dragon Dance Tyranitar, because I realised it has some great potential to basically win me the game. So yeah, enough talk, to the team and beyond! :P

How about a scarf Keldeo for rain counter
Why dafuq are you running Status moves on a Specs set? Replace that item, and add a Secondary Attacking move. Here is the suggested Set Up
Rotom-W @ Petaya Berry
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 96 HP / 160 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Thunderbolt
- Hydro Pump
- Substitute
- Pain Split

The idea of this set is to Counter-abuse Rotom's Low HP stat against the foe by setting up Sub. and Fast, with 252 Timid Speed (as much as it can go, its slow). Dual Stabs hit hard, especially after 3 Subs/Damage, which will transform the Rotom-Wash into Rotom-Machine Gun. Pain Split shrugs off the damage, guaranteeing HP recovery due to low HP while still grabbing a +1SAtk boost.
Dragon Pulse<Draco Meteor. Latias' set is to be used as a Tank, whos longevity is cut from the -2 SAtk. Your opponent will lol a bulky Latias who can't hit back. If your gonna go for Draco Meteor run a Specs set, if Dragon Pulse run Life Orb as it can grab that boost while Recovering the damage.
DD Tyranitar sucks. Considering that your almost guaranteed to use it as a Lead/Weather Launcher, setting up is never a good idea due to the Tyrant's Weakness to Breloom's omni-present Mach Punch and Scizor's less-seen but still oh-so-dangerous Bullet Punch. If using as a Late Game Sweeper, I would go for Unnerve.

BTW your Heatran is walled by a Heatran. Also Houndoom. And Flareon. Those are all threats (lol Doom' and No Viable STAB Flareon) might wanna throw in an Earth Power<WoW.
You can at least put this on the answer section.
The shiny blankness hurts my eyes XD

I am still in the dark as to why you call this a Clear Skies team, but nevertheless I am going to rate it. The thing I notice right off the bat is that you are running wierd spreads. Small amounts of HP EVs won't do too much as far as cushioning hits I'm afraid, so you might as well just invest them into other stats. You appear to be going for some bulky sweepers but THB some of the things you are running kind of let that down.

Tyranitar - Shaddap Erick :P. DD Tar is boss. I do not, however think it will work with that spread. Everything else looks good, but run Jolly Nature and go for this spread. 52 HP / 252 Atk / 200 Spd. This is the spread I used to use on DD Tar and it works well if you can play it the right way. At the beginning of the battle, Tyranitar should be used very conservatively. Usually you will want him to set up your sand, and after that, only come in when it is neccassary, as if you lose Tar you lose your weather, and that's bad. The time to bring in da Tar and set up is late game. Come in when another of your pokemon has been killed and the enemy is something you can set up on, then sweep. If you play it right, Tar can be a rather effective setter and late game sweeper.

Keldeo - I don't know why you have those HP EVs, put them into SAtk, and give him 4 HP.

Latios - Once more, I don't see what you have set out to accomplish with your HP EVs, but I advise you put them into SAtk, and perhaps give Latias a Life Orb. Life Orb Latias is my favorite set for Latias as it hits very hard, has good coverage, and can take more than a few hits. Replace Draco Meteor for Dragon Pulse. I know that the power is nice to have but as Erick said, Latias will be able to do so much more with his SAtk not suffering from the Draco Meteor drop.

Heatran - Change his spread to 248 HP / 252 SDef / 8 Spd, and give him Earth Power over Stealth Rock, allowing him to take on other Heatrans on the switch as Erick noted in his comment.

Landorus-T - You lack a physical wall, so I think I am going to make Landorus that wall.

Landorus-T @ Leftovers
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 244 HP / 64 Atk / 200 Def
Impish Nature
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Stealth Rock
- U-turn

I've used this Landorus a few times, and it has the bulk to easily take fighting type moves aimed at Tar and Tranny, along with many other physical hits. Intimdate boosts his bulk significantly and he is great for setting Rocks, as he can come in on somehting like Terrakion, which it threatens massively, and use Rocks on the switch. U-turn removes the occasional Espeon trying to bounce back Stealth Rock, and EQ and Stone Edge get nice coverage. 64 Atk may not be much, but with his massive Attack stat Landorus-T is still at somewhere between 320-340 Attack with just 64 EVs, which is very impressive, and allows him to do a but of sweeping, crushing the things that he walls.

Rotom-W - You need a scarfer brah.

Rotom-W @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest/Timid Nature
- Hydro Pump
- Volt Switch
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Trick

Rotom-W is quite the menace with a Scarf. STAB Hydro Pump hurts, and Volt Switch makes him great for scouting, revenge killing, and forms a nice Volt-Turn Core with Lando. Hidden Power [Ice] takes down things like Breloom, Dragoninte, Garchomp, Salamence, and other such things. Trick screws walls and maybe allows you to get some Lefties for reocovery.

Ben, guy, dude, whatever; Thank you SO much!
He calls this a CS team as it doesn't rely on weather, and Smogon apparently doesn't recognize Tyranitar as a Weather Inducer. I know, it's retarded, but see for yourself http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3480759 (Post #11)
