Well, second attempt to Sandstorm. First one didn't turn out well and it was 10 months ago so... Here we go!


Tyranitar @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spe/ 4 HP
Jolly Nature (+Spe,-SAtk)

  • Stone Edge
  • Earthquake
  • Crunch
  • Aerial Ace

I had alot of difficulty choosing between T-Tar and Stockpile-Odon. My choice is T-Tar. Scarfed for the only reason that his Speed is terrible. Stone Edge for STAB and Earthquake for high power. Crunch for decent STAB and Aerial Ace for the infinite accuracy and Coverage against Grass and Flying types.


Landorus @ Leftovers
Trait: Sand Force
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spe/ 4 HP
Jolly Nature (+Spe,-SAtk)

  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge
  • U-Turn
  • Swords Dance

Well, here's the guy that benefits from the Sand! Earthquake for STAB and Stone edge for coverage against Ice types. U-Turn for switching in a hurry while doing some damage and all of these moves are boosted by Swords Dance. Pretty basic.


Reuniclus @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 HP/ 4 SDef
Quiet Nature (+SAtk,-Spe)

  • Trick Room
  • Psychic
  • Energy Ball
  • Focus Blast

A must-have in my team. T-Tar has a horrible 4x Fighting Weakness but Reuniclus cancels this by sweeping them. Trick Room makes this Pokemon amazingly fast and Psychic for STAB. Energy Ball covers my team's Water type weakness and Focus Blast is for coverage against Dark types.


Jellicent @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 248 HP/ 160 Def/ 100 Spe
Bold Nature (+Spe,-Atk)

  • Scald
  • Taunt
  • Recover
  • Will-O-Wisp

The Spirit Squid thingy. Water Absorb is important for my team, i guess you know why. Scald for STAB and Taunt for.... Taunting. Recover for recovering and Will-O-Wisp for burning. Worst description ever T.T


Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 Def/ 128 Atk/ 128 SDef
Brave Nature (+Atk,-Spd)

  • Spikes
  • Power Whip
  • Thunder Wave
  • Leech Seed

Tired of typing... Here's a Basic Ferrothorn Set. 'Nuff said.

My last Pokemon is this one: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?p=4291178 The one that The Reptile posted (Scroll a bit down) but replace Rapid Spin by Flamethrower. Since i am not allowed to post a set for him, i'll post his Substitute.


Terrakion @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Justified
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spe/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Stone Edge
  • Close Combat
  • X-Scissor
  • Earthquake

This set covers:
No Effect: 0
Not Very Effective: 0
Normal Effectiveness: 164
Super Effective: 505

Try and be not very effective against this set, son!

So that was my 2nd Sand Team. Hope you liked it! Thank you in advance for reading and for answering!
