Since this is the First PU team in this website, this is an important milestone. PU is a tier, the lowest of the lowest and it has the Pokemon that are never used in the NU tier. This is normally due to their poor stats or horrible movepool. Like all tiers, you can make a winning strategy with them and eventually, beat a Uber or OU team. Enough with the talking, here we go!


Ampharos (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Static
EVs: 252 HP/ 54 Def/ 202 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Cotton Guard
  • Thunderbolt
  • Heal Bell
  • Hidden Power Ice

Poor Amphy! Does that poor creature have to be in PU? By the way, how did a Flaffy evolve into THIS?! You geneticly mutated sheep! Ok, whatever... Cotton Guard is for raising Defense and Thunderbolt is for STAB and is in all a great Electric attack, even better than Thunder except when it's Raining. Heal Bell is to heal,thus the attack's name. HP Ice is for coverage against Ground types, the only Weakness of Amphy.


Maractus (F) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Def/ 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Spikes
  • Giga Drain
  • Cotton Guard
  • Hidden Power Electric

When Cacturne came out i was like, OK, yeah, GAME FREAK are getting creative. Cacnea was a cute little guy, by the way. When i went in Desert Resort, i encountered Maractus. My first reaction was like: "Woah, what in the world is this?!". I captured him and soon found out he was worth less than garbage. Let's try to make this guy a bit powerful. In this team, his role is a Water Destroyer, to help Heatmor, my Fire type. Spikes are Entry Hazards and help awfully the team by weakening the foes. Giga Drain is to get some life back, which he will surely lose. Cotton Guard is for the Defense and Hp Electric is for destroying even more Water types. With it's ability Storm Drain, if a well-aimed Surf tries to hit my Heatmor, i just switch and voila, the job is done, organise the funerals for that crappy Corsola xD. Focus Sash is to hold on a bit more, and by doing that, it can use Giga Drain to get it's life back a bit.


Heatmor (M) @ Zoom Lens
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 126 HP/ 66 Def/ 252 SAtk/ 64 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Flamethrower
  • Focus Blast
  • Sucker Punch
  • Hidden Power Grass

An Ant-Eater, ok... But a Firey Ant-Eater?! That's just wrong! Flamethrower is for STAB and it's a wonderful Fire attack. Focus Blast is a great Fighting type attack and with the Zoom Lens, it is almost assured to hit it's target and it covers his Rock type weakness. Sucker Punch is to kill rapidly before this guy, who will eventually die, by the way. HP Grass is just a blessing on this guy so he can cover his Water and Ground type weaknesses.


Banette (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Insomnia
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def
Brave Nature (+Atk,-Spd)

  • Trick Room
  • Shadow Claw
  • Destiny Bond
  • Will O Wisp

Never though this scary puppet would be PU. It will be easy to work with him. This moveset is a bit inspired by a combo that Mew (a fantastic user here) did to me on PO. First, use Trick Room. It will take advantage of Banette's low speed. Then, if the opponent is trying to OHKO you, hold on with Focus Sash. Because of Trick Room, you will be faster so use Destiny Bond. If the foe kills you, he dies too. Yay, this is so joyous... Shadow Claw is for STAB and Will O Wisp is to slowly kill the opponent if the Destiny Bond combo didn't work.


Lumineon (F) @ Absorb Bulb
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 4 SDef/ 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Scald
  • Agility
  • Signal Beam
  • Ice Beam

Such a gorgeous and gracious Pokemon. This one is definitely underestimated. Or maybe it's me that is overestimating him. Scald is a great Water type attack and it can burn (awesome!). Agility is to raise Lumineon's Speed and Signal Beam is a good Bug attack that covers it's Grass Weakness. Ice Beam is also to cover it's Grass weakness but it hits harder than Signal Beam. Storm Drain has the same purpose that it had on Maractus but i would use Lumineon for that purpose only if Maractus is K.O.


Hypno (M) @ Light Clay
Trait: Insomnia
EVs: 252 HP / 168 Def / 88 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def,-Atk)

  • Psychic
  • Wish
  • Light Screen
  • Reflect

Hypno, the long lost Psychic Pokemon. I mean, i would rather use a Alakazam than him. Who wouldn't?! No wonder he's PU. This guy is a Wall in my team so Light Clay is the perfect item for him. Psychic is his only attack and the most reliable and, in my opinion, the strongest Psychic type attack. Wish is a good healing move that can heal Hypno or his teamates. Light Screen and Reflect are the wall moves, here.

Thank you very much for reading this team. I am very proud of making this team and my goal is to see on the chat some people that are like: "Hey,kid, wanna have a PU battle on PO?". Thanks alot to Unrecognizable ( Kyron ) for showing me what is PU. Try to make your adjustments to this team.
