Feel Free to leave suggestions. I spent a good hour describing the team, and I hope you enjoy it! More Zelda teams to come probably. Anyways, this team is based around the six "sages" from Ocarina of Time.

Saria (Shaymin-S) @ Miracle Seed

Trait: Serene Grace

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Air Slash
  • Earth Power
  • Seed Flare
  • Giga Drain

Sage of the forest, and Link's little Fairy friend. Air Slash works out nicely with Serene Grace, it pisses people off. Earth Power gets really good coverage. Seed Flare is Shaymin's sig move, and gets some powerful STAB. Giga Drain gets some recovery. Miracle Seed is a good Item with Seed Flare and Giga Drain, plus the STAB powa. EVs let it hit fast and hard.

Rauru (Mewtwo) @ Life Orb

Trait: Pressure

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Psystrike
  • Thunder
  • Aura Sphere
  • Ice Beam

Sage of Light, and a smart guy. Mewtwo fits well. Psystrike is self-explanatory. Thunder helps me kill Josh's Kyogres + Rain boosts. Aura Sphere hits dem Darkrai, plus accuracy. Ice Beam is my favorite move, I excessively carry it on almost all Pokemon. Life Orb lets it get awasome sweep skillz, and works well with all his moves. EVs are like Shaymin's.

Darunia (Ho-Oh) @ Charcoal

Trait: Regenerator

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 SDef

Mild Nature (+SAtk, -Def)

  • Flamethrower
  • Thunderbolt
  • Toxic
  • Sacred Fire

Based off of the Sage of Fire, and Link's 'brother'. Flamethrower is STAB. Thunderbolt is coverage. Toxic allows it to cripple many Pokemon. Real nice move to carry. Sacred Fire is a sig move with burn chance and STAB. Charcoal was suggested to me by trachy some time ago and works quite nicely. EVs give it bulk and some Power. Unfortunately, Stealth Rock was invented, so this guy doesn't last too long. Damn you Stealth Rock.

Ruto (Arceus-Water) @ Splash Plate

Trait: Multitype

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Calm Mind
  • Recover
  • Judgment
  • Thunder

Sage of Water, and obsessed with Link. TBH I always found Arceus to be overrated, so it all works out :D Calm Mind boosts great. Awesome move. Recover gets reliable recovery. Judgement is Arceus's sig move, and gets STAB. Thunder also gets Josh's stupid Kyogre down, any Kyogre in general, and packs a punch. Splash Plate puts in the Water type, for Sage of Water. EVs are a nice spread IMO.

Impa (Giratina) @ Leftovers

Trait: Pressure

EVs: 252 HP / 124 Def / 128 SDef

Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Will-O-Wisp
  • Destiny Bond
  • Shadow Ball
  • Rest

Sage of Shadows, and Zelda's protector wall. It walls. Will-O-Wisp inflicts status. Destiny Bond gets the foe fainted too (Die fighting as the protector). Shadow Ball gets STAB and stops Taunt. Rest heals up. Leftovers also gets some sexy healing. EVs give a nice bulky set. This one WALLS.

Nabooru (Deoxys-A) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Pressure

EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Hasty Nature (+Spd, -Def)
- ExtremeSpeed
- Thunderbolt
- Toxic
- Ice Beam

Sage of Spirits, and strong willed. Helps Link out in the desert. ExtremeSpeed is priority, works well with Atk stat. Thunderbolt is a coverage move, and a good move in general. Toxic. I know this girl is supposed to sweep, but I was thinking: The Gerudo are cunning and get the opponent wore down first. So Toxic does that and is nice. Ice Beam gets the Bolt-Beam combo and is a bawsin move.

I can tell someone didn't have " safe search " on when they looked up Ruto :P
Didn't search. Went here: http://www.zeldawiki.org/Princess_Ruto Actually official Artwork.
Huh, I always knew Zelda went a little edgy, but that's a bit far for them xD
Oh well, I'm not complaining :P
Darunia would be more Emboar.
Emboar is not Uber.
In Ubers, you aren't restricted to just Ubers. Emboar in Uber? Hah.
Well the waist lien of emboar and darunia is the same.
Wait Darinia is bigger.Sorry Emboar

Shaymin's Miracle Seed isn't going to work too well here. However, Life Orb works fine-you get recoil, but your good old friend Giga Drain can restore HP for you again. 30% boost for all moves instead of a 20% for only Giga Drain and Seed Flare.


Consider swapping Thunder for Thunderbolt. What happens if another weather besides Rain comes in? Thunder would be useless then. Well, not entirely useless, but a 50% chance to hit in all other weathers isn't going to help much.


You have way too many Special Pokemon. Okay, maybe Mewtwo with Psystrike can cut it, but, you need another Physical Pokemon. So I'm going to make Ho-oh into one. Nuff Said.

Darunia (Ho-Oh) @ Leftovers/Life Orb

Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Flame Charge
  • Sacred Fire
  • Brave Bird
  • Recover / Earthquake

Flame Charge helps with Ho-oh's base 90 Speed. Sacred Fire is STAB, and Brave Bird is another power STAB. The last moveslot depends on the item. Life Orb should be with Recover, and Earthquake for Leftovers. EVs allow switch ins twice on Stealth Rock.

Now, and Physical Wall is needed. Giratina is the one! But wrong moveset and EVs...

Impa (Giratina) @ Leftovers

Trait: Pressure
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Will-O-Wisp
  • Rest
  • Sleep Talk
  • Roar / Dragon Tail

Will-O-Wisp cripples Physical Pokemon easily. Rest is to regain HP, and heal any status that the opponent placed on Giratina. Sleep Talk give Roar/Dragon Tail neutral priority, and Roar can phaze boosters and Substituts / Dragon Tail prevents Taunt from finishing you off and phazes. No subs can be phazed though.


I love this guy. I suggest you change the EVs to make it more of a special tank. I suggest:

Ruto (Arceus-Water) @ Splash Plate

Trait: Multitype
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Calm Mind
  • Surf
  • Recover
  • Spacial Rend

Defensive Calm Minder. Calm Mind boosts SAtk and SDef. Surf is used over Judgement because it had more PP in exchange for a loss of 5 base power. Recover...um....recovers HP!!! Spacial Rend hits the many Dragons in Uber hard.


Psycho Boost > Toxic
Superpower > Thunderbolt
Shadow Ball > Ice Beam
