Pokémon Rate My Team
0 votes

This is a team I've been playing around with on showdown and am in the process of building on Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. The Pokemon are not going to change so please don't suggest that. The main thing I would like suggestions on is getting the moves and sets to optimal strategy. As a mono dragon team the theory is to throw out Garchomp and set up rocks unless it looks like that will be countered and then set up and sweep with the remaining Pokemon. In mono type this is usually good enough to win except against ice and fairy teams. Any comment would be appreciated and I hope someone will be able to give me a thorough answer. Without further ado heres the team!

M-Salamance can have M-Altarias moveset and carry it out better.

Celasteela walls your team hard.

Mimikyu is a major threat to your team too.

I think that Dragonium-Z Nasty Plot/Draco Meteor/Fire Blast/Sludge Wave Naganadel should replace Kommo-o. If you are planning to do this in an in game format where all Pokemon are lvl 50, TimidNaganadel will take a speed boost everytime in KO's, and partnered with Nasty Plot, it can deal a lot of damage, taking down tapus, steel types, other dragons, etc.

Basically what I am saying is:
Replace M-Altaria for M-Salamance
Kommo-o replaced with Naganadel
Get rid of Altaria for a dragon that can deal with Mimikyu, AKA Dialga.

Also add a fire type move to Hydreigon.
Correct me if im wrong but M-Salamence, Naganadel and Dialga are all banned in monotype. I might have to try this on the DS though. Thanks for the tips!
There is no monotype in the cartridge.
