Welcome to Flafperts Hyper Offensive UU team!

We will begin with the strangest team-building process of all time and then treat every Pokémon individually.


This team started out as two powerful sweepers I had in a previous team, Specs Raikou and, after much trail and error, Banded Flygon.

Sunkern Feebas

Here the madness start! I tried basically every Pokémon with more offensive presence than Stunfisk in the UU tier and beyond. Some of them caught my eyes and heart:


Oh fair UU, home of ridiculously powerful Fire type left and right, massacring everything in sigth. 145 Special Attack is impressive enough, and Choice Scarf is just incredibly hot stuff.

I needed some sort of special defensive pivot, as well as something with proper speed and mixed coverage. Meloetta became a perfect fit, breaking walls and cores with incredible precision.

During my travels, I happened to cross the border of the frozen taiga that is UU into the swamps of RU. The first beast I found was the might alligator, Feralgitar, posing the moves of a first class Dragon.

When traveling the rivers and bogs of RU, I came across a beast that would replace the Tiger King of UU, Raikou, with a hideous arthropod, Galvantula. Please don't put me a cushioned cell with a small window for this, there is reason behind the madness.

One day, I got a letter from a mysterious organisation, known as OBIFFAH:

Dear Mr Flafpert
We are very grateful that you have decided to not support the tyranny of Stealth Rocks, Spikes and Toxic Spikes in your battles. We admire your values of the lives and wellbeing of your opponents rather than winning.
Yours Sincerely
Charizard (CEO), Yanmega (Deputy CEO) and Weavile (Chairman)
And everyone working with the Organisation of Bug, Ice Fire and Flying for the Abbolishment of Hazards, OBIFFAH

I got tired of getting owned by noobs with Charizard basically, so I needed a Stealth Rock setter. LCB suggested Cobalion, and it worked fairly well, but it added a crippling Ground weakness. After one battle with Mike (the mod), which I lost big times, he suggested Bronzong, and it works so incredibly well.

Due to the 8000 character limit, the sets will be posted as an answer.

I made some more edits to the team and I feel it's worth posting them. Thanks to this team managed to peak at 65 on the ladder (MrKijani and Enoch is my witnesses since I suck at imegur). Changes will be posted in italic.

Now, let’s analyze every team member individually:

Flygon @ Choice Band
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Jolly Nature
- Outrage
- Earthquake
- U-turn
- Quick Attack

This thing, it just hits so incredibly hard. Very few things can or want to take a STAB Outrage or Earthquake at all. He serves as my first scout, and brings some key resistances the team desperately needs, primarily Rock and Electric. Quick Attack is some much needed priority whilst still hitting decently hard. Sure I miss the coverage of Fire Punch, but the tide changing power of a priority move should never be underestimated.

Chandelure @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 SDef
Modest Nature
- Hidden Power [Rock]
- Shadow Ball
- Flamethrower
- Energy Ball

Counter Fire with Fire I say. The scarf allows it to outrun other Chandelure´s and hits for massive damage. It is troubled by really bulky tanks, sadly. Porygon2, Snorlax and Milotic are just the death of me with Chandelure.
HP Rock is chosen over Psychic to deal with Houndoom and similar. Thank you Doc Flame for suggesting.

Meloetta @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SAtk
Mild Nature
- Close Combat
- Thunderbolt
- Psychic
- Relic Song

Meloetta is incredibly useful for this team. It serves as my first line of defense against special attack with a nice 128 Base SDef, and as my unstoppable mixed attacker, dealing with Porygon2, Snorlax, Blastoise and outspeeds many Specs/Banded foes in its Pirouette form. Overall, it became one of my strongest fighters, and it is quite trolly to use, since no one really expects Thunderbolt and Close Combat.

Feraligatr @ Leftovers
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 4 Spe / 252 HP / 252 Atk
Adamant Nature
- Aqua Jet
- Earthquake
- Ice Punch/ Outrage
- Sword Dance

I made some real adjustments to Feralgitar. Aqua Jet>Waterfall due to the lack of priority on the team. Ice Punch is just better cover and the extra bulk allows me to take out Kingdra anyway. Sword Dance worked better then Dragon Dance with Aqua Jet and Ice Punch. I sometimes use Outrage just for the power of it. Often it can do more damage than Ice Punch simply due to the incredible neutral coverage it provides.

Galvantula @ Choice Specs
Trait: Compoundeyes
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature
- Thunder
- Giga Drain
- Bug Buzz
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Now, for the wild card of the team. Why Galvantula when Raikou exist? Reliable STAB Thunder and STAB Bug Buzz. Specs make Thunder more powerful than Raikous Thunderbolt and STAB Bug Buzz is better than any cover move Raikou possesses. HP Ice is chosen over Giga Drain due to just generally superior coverage.
What I didn't realize with Galvantula and Feralgitar was how great of a core they made. Grass and Electric is completely walled by Galvantula and Ground, Rock, Fire is cookiedough for Feralgitar

Bronzong @ Choice Band
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Earthquake
- Trick
- Stealth Rock
- Zen Headbutt

A tricky set, and incredibly unexpected. Start with Trick, and let the ultimate crippling begin! And it sets up SR, which OBIFFAH so kindly reminded me of. Zen Headbutt is great STAB and EQ kills any Chandelure daring to switch in.

I am overall very happy with the team, being a little bit unexpected and very fast. Be aware, this team won’t get any 6-0s, it is usually hanging on one last move since I have to sack 2-3 pokes to wear that last foe down. It is just generally really fun to use a creates really exciting matches.

That will be all for me, have a good day and feel free to leave a comment regarding the team!

could you include an importable copy as this team looks amazing :)
tried the team and it does great! Nobody expects trick bronzong and it trolls people so hard, and it's got decent offensive presence. Overall, a brilliant team. :)
EDIT: Giga Drain > Volt Switch. Sounds stupid, but gets fantastic coverage.
Agree with you completely, I hane noticed the redundancy of Volt Switch myself.
I liek the scarf. But one thing I would put is to use Hidden Power Ice over Psychic. I don't even know why Psychic is there... Plus Brongzong and Meloetta has  Psychic move, and HIdden Power Ice can easily OHKO enemy Banded Flygon and also the annoying Gligar. And everyone who's smart wont leave a fighting type on Chandy anyway..... Or you can use Hidden Power Rock to hit the occasional Arcanine or Houndoom who think they're so smart by having Flash Fire LOLNOPE HP Rock is here...
OK I have some suggestions for this guy. First of all it's the Outrage. Lolwut? Uh, no. Go for Ice Punch, it basically hits every dragon and doesn't leave you in confusion, which can be devastating without a Lum Berry. Also what's wrong with Kindgra in Rain, if you have enough boosts Ice Punch can easily kill it. Also Outrage can benefit you better, killing off Flygon's easier and not leave you set up bait for Registeels. Also that's why you need Jolly nature not Adamant.  Speaking of Lum Berries, you might want to have one, not just to cure Confusion because Outrage isn't the best move on this guy, but to counter Sableye and also the occasional T-Wave Togekiss which somehow can maybe tank this guy's Waterfall. Another is Earthquake. I know you want to hit steels and thats fine, but do you see this guy's speed? It's not the greatest, and most of the time people will switch if they are smart and bring in a scarfer or something thats faster. Basically I would say Aqua Jet, but I wouldn't say no to Crunch, either. But EQ is not a bad move... just the only thing it hits is Steels.

I will definitely try out the Chandelure ideas, Psychic have just been a filler move.
Feralgitar is my troublechild however. No matter what I use for him, there will always be something to wall him into oblivion. I have tried Ice Punch but found that it cannot really hit Kingdra enough. I will try Lum and Jolly, but E-Q stays, the coverage would be horrendous whithout it. For now, I will be using Outrage.
