Pokémon Rate My Team
0 votes

Well so I've made some teams but this one has gotten me the highest on the OU Ladder in Pokemon Showdown. Please help me improve my team some more. Thank you in advance for reading! :)

Metagross-Mega @ Metagrossite
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive Nature
- Zen Headbutt
- Meteor Mash
- Ice Punch
- Grass Knot

This here is my Mega pokemon. I guess pretty stable movepool with grass knot for coverage since i don't have grass attack in my team :/ very useful for ground types with earthquake tho.

Sylveon @ Leftovers
Ability: Pixilate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
- Protect
- Wish
- Heal Bell
- Hyper Voice

I use my Sylveon as a support pokemon, using heal bell and wish as the situation needs. Maybe you guys can suggest a better moveset if you think other pokemon should be changed but I want to keep this in my team. :)

Thundurus @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Taunt
- Thunder Wave
- Volt Switch
- Knock Off

Pivot Thundurus. Taunt and Vswitch is very useful. Thunderbolt for damage i guess. EVs in hp since I usually only use Taunt and Twave, didn't put EVs in speed. Knock off for situational purposes

Landorus-Therian @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- U-turn
- Superpower
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide

My usual starter pokemon. Choice scarf makes it outrun most pokemon except scarfed faster ones (obviously haha). I normally use it as a U-turn pivot

Latios @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Defog
- Draco Meteor
- Psyshock
- Hidden Power [Fire]

My resident defogger. I use leftovers but I don't know if life orb is better, :/ Also hidden power fire, just chose it so that I have a fire type attack aside from heatran's, I really don't know I just need a good defogger so I chose Latios

Heatran @ Air Balloon
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD
Modest Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Flash Cannon
- Heat Wave
- Toxic

SR setter, also good starter sometimes. Really pesks the hell out of toxic and will - o wisps switch ins from Metagross. I don't know about moveset but I think Heat wave and SR is good. Don't know about Toxic Flash cannon tho

Please suggest what I'm lacking in my team. Thanks guys! :)

Imo give Metagross Agility. You don't really need Grass Knot, but if you really want it MMeta only needs one stab

I know you said you want to keep Sylveon but Clefable is honestly much better.
How high is highest?
Well 1170 to be exact :/
I know it's low, I'm kind of a newbie sorry guys :( I'm currently running a mega pinsir team
Just keep laddering, and make a note of what Pokémon u can't counter. Then adjust your team according to that.
And competitive play means u have to compete to win, no point if u use Pokémon u just "like"  when there are honestly better alternatives
Use latias if your using that set. It seems like you want longetivity, so since latias is bulkier and can learn all those moves, latias is better. Otherwise slap a life orb on latios. Latios mainly does damage, not so for support.
I like running Life orb Latias tbh. It still has adequate enough power to OHKo and 2HKO almost all the relevant threats that Latios can but the extra bulk allows it to better survive things like Manetric's Hp Ice or Gengar's Shadow Ball from full health.
