Pokémon Rate My Team

I’ve been using this team for a while on Showdown, and I want to use it in Ultra Moon. However, I don’t have access to Shaymin and I need to use something else. Don’t recommend a different mythical—I don’t have any.

Also, I have noticed that I tend to not use Shaymin very much in showdown and I feel like other Pokémon could do better on the team.

I guess this kind of counts as a team rate, so I asked the question on here instead of Pokébase.

You have a big weakness to ice. Try getting a fighting or steel type pokemon.

I would say Primal Groudon. Like LeafyBlade mentioned, you have a huge weakness to Ice Types. Primal Groudon can cover for this, and is also one of the best Pokémon in Ubers as of now, and is incredibly versitile. You already have a Stealth Rock setter in Deoxys-Speed, so I’d suggest a Double Dance set. Here it is:

Groudon-Primal @ Red Orb
Ability: Drought
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 Atk/200 HP/56 Spe
- Rock Polish
- Swords Dance
- Precipice Blades
- Fire Punch

How to obtain this Pokémon - You can find Groudon in the Ultra Warp Ride. Save before fighting him, and keep Soft Resetting until you find an Adamant Groudon. (Adamant Synchronize Abra help with this, if you have one.) Don’t bother Soft Resetting for perfect IVs; it’s too hard. Instead, SOS chain Chansey until your Groudon is level 100, and Gold Bottle Cap it. You can buy the Red Orb at the Hou’oli city shopping center. (NOT the Pokémon center.) The rest is pretty self explanatory.

I don't think swords dance on this set is a good idea. When he encounters a Pokemon that can wall Groudon, he should use toxic.

If you want good grass type to replace shaymin i think best choice is:
Tapu Bulu @ Choice Band
Ability: Grassy Surge
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Horn Leech
- Return
- Stone Edge
- Zen Headbutt

If you want something else i think
Groudon @ Red Orb
Ability: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Fire Punch
- Swords Dance
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake
Or

Kyogre @ Blue Orb
Ability: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Ice Beam
- Origin Pulse
- Thunder
- Toxic

Hopefully this helped you :)

I think Kyogre might work, but the Groudon set you have is kinda trash, and the Tapu Blulu set isn’t viable in Ubers.
This is AG, where there are even more Rayquazas and Tapu Bulu is even worse.
I think peligamer was trying to replace Shaymin with a Pokémon of the same type, so that’s why he recommended Tapu Bulu, even if it is bad in AG.

ETN, what’s wrong with Groudon’s moveset?
Mostly just Dragon Claw. I do actually see why it's there, to hit Mega Rayquaza, but its probably not the best tech I've ever seen. Oh also why is it using Earthquake over PBlades?
