PokéBase Meta Pokémon Rate My Team
4 votes

I made this team back in like December 2012 to test out Choice Scarf Latias, Specs Gengar, and Rock Polish + Swords Dance Landorus-T, and so far I can't even remember it's score but it was way more wins than losses and the team is really fun to play with so I'm not concerned. The team is held together my Ferrothorn and Rotom-W spreading paralysis and burns, while my 4 other OP sweepers wreak havoc on enemy lines. I am pleased to report that the star of the team, Landorus-T is pretty much unstoppable after a Rock Polish and Swords Dance which he has little trouble setting up, surprisingly. The team's playstyle is basically just use Ferro and Rotom-W as pivots and set-up support, then bring in my 4 brutal sweepers to hammer my opponent into submission, and I must say it works quite well. Credit to LCB for the title. You may notice I spelled Lightning wrong for Gyarados's nickname in the first 2 replays. Deal with it c:

Lightning sux :c (Gyarados) (M) @ Lum Berry
enter image description here
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Substitute
- Waterfall
- Bounce

Who needs Moxie on Gyarados? Not me, because this team is rocking 2, count em, 2 Intimidaters, and double as brutal set-up sweepers. With the bulk given from Intimidate, Gyarados can more easily get a Substitute up, where he can set up. If you play it right this thing can set up WAY more than any Moxie variant, and after that it doesn't really miss Moxie. Waterfall and Bounce are his 2 STAB moves and even though their coverage isn't perfect, it's more than made up for considering Gyarados will have a few Atk boosts under his belt. As for the name, what kind of giant watery flying snake-dragon thing doesn't get struck by lightning every once in awhile?

InYourCloset (Gengar) (F) @ Choice Specs
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Sleep Talk
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball
- Hidden Power [Ice]

MUHAHAHAHAHAHA. Choice Specs Gengar. I run the obv Shadow Ball for STAB, Focus Blast for that awesome coverage, Hidden Power Ice as a way to slay Dragon, Flying, and Ground types that will have never expected to be taken down by a Gengar, and Sleep Talk because it allows Gengar to come in on a Spore from Breloom and then spit in Loom's eye.

huehuehue (Ferrothorn) (M) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature
- Leech Seed
- Stealth Rock
- Thunder Wave
- Power Whip

Standard Ferrothorn here. Sets Rocks, provides Leech Seed and Thunder Wave support, and is all around just a friggin tank. Troll the masses.

Rotom-Warsh (Rotom-W) @ Leftovers
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 56 SAtk / 200 SDef
Calm Nature
- Hydro Pump
- Volt Switch
- Will-O-Wisp
- Pain Split

Specially Defensive Rotom-W is too pro. Hydro Pump and Volt Switch form his STABs, Pain Split trolls stuff like Chansey and Blissey, while Will-O cripples many physical threats, allowing Gyarados and Landorus to set up some more. In case you missed or didn't get the nickname, I am from Pennsylvania, and although I don't say Warsh myself, too many other people do >.>

Zoom (Latios) (M) @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Draco Meteor
- Psyshock
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Dragon Pulse

I needed a Scarfer and this sucker does not disappoint
Draco Meteor provides a nice little oomph, while Psyshock take care of any trouble with Conkeldurr or Breloom. Hidden Power Fire mows down Ferrothorn and Scizor, as well as hitting Jirachi and Magnezone for decent damage as well. Dragon Pulse is a more reliable STAB and while I could go for the coverage option of T-bolt or Surf, having a steady STAB is nice on a scarfer. Timid Nature lets me outspeed +1 Volcarona and usually take it out with a Draco Meteor.

HelluvaKitty (Landorus-T) (M) @ Yache Berry
enter image description here
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 76 HP / 252 Atk / 180 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Rock Polish
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge

Oh man DoubleDance Landorus-T is such a monster. Rock Polish and Swords Dance bring his Atk and Spd up to sweeping levels, while Earthquake and Stone Edge provide EdgeQuake coverage. The EV spread is an interesting one, designed to just outspeed +2 Spd Cloyster, Scarfed Lati Twins, and Scarf Terrakion (Provided Lando has a Rock Polish up). Yache Berry is to let me set up on stuff like HP Ice Landorus-I, and pretty much says "screw you" to any Mamoswine's or Weavile's that think they can come in and end my sweep with an Ice Shard.

If you watched all of the replays you'll notice the team changed slightly in a few of them, and that's because I pulled this team out and blew the dust off of it todaya and it won like 2 OU tourneys on Amethyst and all this stuff and I changed it around a bit. I took Enoch's sugestions and while I did edit the team I am writing here that his comment below did stem some of the edits made and they made the team that much better.

When I'm looking at this, imagining HelluvaKitty setting up and wrecking havoc: http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/085/444/1282786204310.jpg

Battle me with this team sometime?
What's a Lem Berry? So far, I see link with "Lum Berry" but haven't yet decided upon whether to put this forward as a typo until I have finished my list of: "What are all the words which link to the word 'Lum'" :3
it's a typo. Sorry if you were making a joke and i didn't understand, I'm not social xD
A lem berry is a berry that makes the holder completely dead for the duration of the battle.
^ yeah thats it.

inb4 Bug bite

@ PX: Then don't take part in this conversation if you aren't social :D It's only for social people :D
Wassup' Ben? :D
Note that the title is saying that the tema is comprised of powerful pokemon, that wouldn't neccassarily be fit for Ubers but are powerful in OU. Ofc it is a bit headstrong and maybe cocky but I like it.
Lucky you flare that I can't watch youtube. And second please don't make fun of my lack of sociability..I get very depressed about it ya know?

And thanks for the title support ben xD
Idk, this team looks a little weak to the mighty Focus Sash + Sword Dance Weavile

Good thing this is OU xD
weavile aren't common in OU but they do make an appearance every now and again, so like one or two moves to keep it in check if you do see it might be in order.
+1. And btw guys, Weavile is crap xP
I'll be rating this.
Weavile is the most underated Pokemon in OU. It is finally seeing light as people are finally realizing Weavile poops on everything in OU. It is being used allot at the moment and I wouldn't be surprised to see it in the top 30 most used this month (which is high for it). That said SD shouldn't be used.
SD Weavile may not be good but LO Weavile just mows stuff down.
Scarf could be used. Band Weavile with Ice shard is good, but scarf outruns almost everything in OU, allowing use of the much more powerful Ice punch.
I forgot about Scarf, Scarf Weavile is one of my favorite sets in OU
Blob, Weaville "poops" on all of the Pokemon in OU? Since when did this news leak?
Because it is extremely anti-metagame
there is only one problem with weavile. His massive weakness to mach punch. Good thing he has ice shard.
huge weakness to sashes. a sashed gengar with rain support could just come in on either gyarados or landorus and just decimate them with thunder or hp ice.
Landorus: Yache Berry>Leftovers, it's gonna be very stoppable when Mamo/Weavile smash it in the face with Ice Shard.

Gyarados:  Substitute > Ice Fang, Bounce >Earthquake. An extremely dangerous set that surprisingly has no trouble with Coverage with Dual STABs.

Gengar: Sleep Talk > Sludge Wave, Breloom check.
In the ev I m kind of new so I will just say at123 ect. Garadose good I would give a little mor defence because of rock types rateing 4/5.Gengar I would not use him  because of getting stuck on 1 move  then faceing hunchcrow life orb sucker punch or bronzong psyick the being put to sleep rateing 3/5. Frotherhorn looks good replace t wave with curse.rating 4.6/5. Rotom a little more de for the rare phyiscal grass attack and for curse on frotherhorn t wave instead of will o wisp rating 4.3.latios soild 5.Landorus is bad rating 2 why e quake and stone edge only attacks so when you battle say gengar if stone edge runs out off pp your done rock slide instead then rating4.6
Just saying but Volcarona takes more damage from Psyshock at +1 speed as that obviously means its also at +1 SDef :P. Draco would be doing about 40-50% seen as you are Timid scarf. That is just in case its a bulky set which isn't common in such a fast paced meta.

Just pointed it out as that edited comment you made :p
Yeah. Usually it takes a hit on the set up turn bringing it into Draco KO range. I've never really run the calcs to see which does more at +1 :L
I originally wasn't even gonna make that edit as I've edited this thing enough already but I was getting tired of having to change it to Timid (I almost just lost a battle because I forgot) every time I import xD
This is by far the most edited team on RMT :P
