Obvious Titles 4 The Win
Anyways, a while back, I decided that Mega Pinsir was so good, that I should build a team around it. And so I did. And you are here. Reading my terribly structured sentences. And you are still waiting to learn something about the team. Why are you even reading this.
Loser, read the team.
Pinsir (F) @ Pinsirite
Ability: Mold Breaker -> Aerilate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
- Quick Attack
- Swords Dance
You see, players abuse the most overpowered pokemons. They dont value originality, or looks, no. They value powers. And who grants you more power than EKiller Arceus?
Oh, wrong team.
ANYWAYS, Mega Pinsir is a boss, and there is no denying it. Quick Attack is insanely good Priority, hitting a sweet 78 Power move, which is really not at all that bad, considering that Flying is a tremendously great offensive typing. Frustration is just a stronger version of Quick Attack, that doesn't have priority, but has wallbreaking power. It has a higher Power than Talonflame's Brave Bird (180 Power Brave Bird vs 198 Power Return). So, get that in your head for a bit. Earthquake serves as a all-around coverage move, being able to finish off Aegislash, Heatran, MMawile, and Rotom-W (prior to Mega evolving). The only legitimate counters i can think of are Skarmory, Defensive Zapdos, and Air Balloon Rotom-Fan. But nobody uses Skarmory, so it's ok. (Get the joke, or get the heck out c:)
If you want calcs, head on over to Smogon's MPinsir thread. Enjoy it all.
Frustration > Return, just for Ditto Trolls.
Latios (M) @ Life Orbs
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
IVs: 0 Atk
- Draco Meteor
Enter the part 1 of the infamous OU core. Latios pairs really well with Bisharp, with fairy typing being the only legitimate type to be able to take them out both. But that is a different story, and Sylveon/Togekiss get destroyed by Bisharp in the first place.
Anyways, nothing has changed other than the fact that Latios is now a very well known Defog pokemon. Clearing Rocks on a team with 3 pokemons weak to SR is optimal. Psyshock catches MVenu and Conkeldurr off guard, and is a preferred move when it is mandatory to keep myself at a neutral SAtk. However, Draco Meteor is just a rek-stuff-and-flee type of move, with minimal risks, apart from Aegislash switch-ins. Recover is just to heal me up, because Roost is lame, and these guys aren't even flying types lmfao that doesn't even make sense thank grammar for run on sentences.
Bisharp @ Life Orb
EVs: 28 HP / 252 Atk / 228 Spd
- Knock Off
- Sucker Punch
- Iron Head
- Swords Dance
Enter Part 3 (yes, part 3) of the Latios + Bisharp core. This sexy knight takes care of Aegislash and switch-ins. Knock Off is always a 100% guaranteed OHKO on the standard Aegislash. Sucker Punch is just to beat faster pokemons, like Mega Pinsir (who will EQ if I'm at high health), or Mega Charizard's, who will try and kill me. Iron Head is the fairy and Tyranitar killer, and Swords Dance helps me boost up when scrubs think they will set up on an expected Sucker Punch.
Rotom-Wash @ Chesto Berry
EVs: 236 HP / 208 Def / 64 SAtk
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hydro Pump
- Volt Switch
Talonflame counter gg. Random EVs, standard moveset, ChestoRest > Pain Split Lefties. Nothing to see here, really.
Talonflame @ Choice Band
Ability: Gale Wings
EVs: 48 HP / 252 Atk / 208 Spd
- Brave Bird
- Flare Blitz
Enter the Mega Pinsirs counter.
Do you ever have those moments where the opponent has a Greninja, Alakazam, and other frail crap, and Pinsir is dead? Your team is in the 9th inning, bases loaded, and you have no fast power hitters left? Well, Talonflame is the absolute answer. What was that? I can't hear your weakened Rotom-W switch-in TO THE FACT THAT I WILL KILL IT THE NEXT TURN. Brave Bird is good, kills stuff, and makes me go suicidal. Also, it allows me to act as a pseudo-scarf, thanks to Gale Wings. It also helps me beat Pinsir 1-on-1. Flare Blitz is just STAB, and amazing coverage, only to be walled by Rock types, Heatran, and Rotom-W (in OU). Basically, a physical Moltres (who dies to recoil). Roost heals me up whenever I suspect a Heatran/Rotom-W switch mid-battle, and U-turn helps weaken TTar.
Thundurus (M) @ Experts Belt
EVs: 82 HP / 178 SAtk / 248 Spd
IVs: 2 Atk / 30 Def
- Nasty Plot
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Focus Blast
This thing is deadly, let me start off with that. EVs are to survive a ScarfChomp's Outrage, and allow me to retaliate. Nasty Plot is because no one can handle the swag (or the Nastyyyyy). HP Ice kills Garchomp, Dragonite, and MVenu (weakened ones), as well as the annoying Lando-T. Thunderbolt is STAB, and helps check all these darned Mandibuzz and Defenssive Rotom-W's that are around. Focus Blast is mainly for Heatran, cause Talonsflame really hates it. Not to mention that it OHKO's TTar :)
There ya go, that's my HO team.
