RMT: My original 5th Gen Team

Post by Shockvalue on Wed Jun 29, 2011 2:59 am

I usually don't do things like this, but in order to help the discussion of Black/white, I'll start, and I encourage the rest of you to post a team or two.

To start off, I know the team isn't that great, and I don't really have a lead. Although, I have found that not having a lead has worked for me quite often.

Aerodactyl

Item: Focus Sash
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Attack/ 252 Speed
Ability: Iron Head
Moves:
-Earthquake
-Stone Edge
-Iron Head
-Crunch

My thought behind this was to see how many pokemon I could knock out with just something so simple. The sash was simply for when my opponents lead can't be KO'd.

Alakazam

Item: Life Orb
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Sp. Attack/252 Speed
Ability: Synchronize
Moves:
-Psychic
-Psyshock
-Focus Blast
-Shadow Ball

I have two psychic type moves for one reason: Blissey. Everytime I'm using Alakazam and my opponent is using blissey, it doesn't take long before Blissey is gone due to psyshock.

Magnezone

Item:Leftovers
Nature:Bold
EVs: 200 HP/200 Defense/110 Sp. Attack
Ability: Magnet Pull
Moves:
-HP Fire
-Charge Beam
-Flash Cannon
-Substitute

This is my ferrothorn counter for this team. The thought behind it is to use charge beam once or twice simply for the Sp. Attack boost it gives, and then HP fire it away. I've noticed that substitute doesn't really serve a purpose other than to get rid of my HP, but I'm not sure what to replace it with if I replace it with.

Porygon2

Item: Eviolite
Nature: Calm
EVs: 58 Defense/ 252 Sp. Attack/ 200 Sp. Defense
Ability: Trace
Moves:
-Recover
-Toxic
-Ice beam
-Thunderbolt

The moveset is pretty standard. The eviolite brings Porygon's defenses way up, while also having a decent special attack to help get rid of the problem. Great for sword dancing Gliscors, as Bennet might have noticed.

Slowbro

Item: Leftovers
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Defense/4 Sp. Attack
Ability: Regenerator
Moves:
-Calm Mind
-Scald
-Psychic
-Slack Off

After a calm mind or two, this thing becomes a beast. Not only is it a great physical wall/fighting counter, it's a great special tank after calm mind. With the access to an instant recovery move, if it gets to set up, the opponent is pretty much screwed.

Haxorus

Item: Choice Scarf
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Attack/ 252 Speed
Ability: Mold Breaker
Moves:
-Outrage
-Earthquake
-Return
-Brick Break

I usually wait until the end of the match to bring this out, but sometimes it can't be helped. With its great attack, and high speed with scarf, it usually surprises people who are expecting a dragon dance.

Not bad. I would probably replace Aerodactyl and Alakazam, as they are both frail. Since you don't need a lead in 5th gen (seeing as both people can see both teams and adjust accordingly) I would be more apt to get rid of Aero.

Replace Aerodactyl with a priority mover like Arcanine/Scizor/Metagross or a souter with U-turn.
Replace Alakazam with something that can take more hits like Latios/specsDragonite or a volt switcher like Gavantula.

I'd Keep Alakazam (Coming from someone who likes speedy Heavy Hitters) but I'd replace Psyshock with Shadow ball, and the reason for this is because you should then replace Aerodactyl with Scizor.

Scizor Set:

4 HP
252 Attack
252 Speed
Item: Choice Band
Moveset: Bullet Punch (Priority, Plus power after STAB, Technician, and Choice Band)
U-Turn (Scouting, Switch Advantage)
Super Power (Will Destroy Blissey)
Pursuit (If you catch latios/latias, you can scare them out with U-Turn, even if they
don't switch its decedent damage)

Alakazam already has shadow ball... The point of psyshock is to help get rid of the special walls that people send out, such as blissey. One psyshock from Alakazam usually OHKO's blissey.

I'll try it out for a while since both you and bennet suggested a scizor in place of Aerodactyl.
