Need help with my team
Yeah, trying to build a team. But I'm a beginner in these stuff so I just go around trade threads trading for any Pokemon I think is good enough without thinking of a strategy.
Here's my team at the moment:
EV [HP 252/ Def 152/ SpD 106]
Ability: Sand Stream
EV [HP 6/ Att 252/ Spe 252]
Ability: Mold Breaker
EV [Def 4/ SpA 252/ Spe 252]
Ability: Flash Fire
EV [HP 4/ SpA 252/ Spe 252]
(the next one is going to be an Archeops)
So I still need a Pokemon as well. Can you suggest some stuff, like changing some of them or suggesting the last Pokemon? Please make it an easy but effective team and btw, Archeops is not going ;)
Although it has massive base attack, I really reccomend you ditch Rampardos, with such low speed, low defense and many weaknesses it' can usually be 2OKO'd even if it does get a rock polish up, it's the definition of a glass cannon. But still I won't be useless so here's my favourite set for him, he's hard not to ignore with the second highest base attack (165, only second to attack form Deoxys) in the game;
Rampardos @ Choice Band
~ Head Smash
~ Fire Punch
4 Hp | 252 Atk | 252 Spe
Head Smash broken down is this; 165 base attack + 150 base attack power + STAB + Choice Band = Death. Although the recoil won't be nice. Fire Punch is for Ferrothorn and Skarmory etc whilst Pursuit can hit anything trying to escape, hope I helped. :)
EDIT: Hydreigon also works better with either Modest or Timid nature, and use Choice Scarf or Specs as an item, or even Life Orb.
Ok, thanks for the advice.
Like Salamence said, Rampardos shouldn't be in an Standard OU team. Neither should Archeops. I can understand since he's your favourite Pokemon. But like Rampardos; he's a glass cannon. He's weak to Aqua Jet and Bullet Punch, both of which are quite common.
Chandelure isn't really that good. Sure it has a nice 145 Base Special attack, but that is really all it's got going for it. Also like Salamence suggested, replace Hydreigons Rash nature with Timid. I'll rate it some more once you've 6 Pokemon.
if you want good Pokemon for your team go stalk the good trade threads in the trade corner. ;;
So Rampardos and Archeops are out of the picture. I may stick with Chandelure though to protect me from nasty level 1 Arons. Although Hippowdon can do that with his immunity to Sandstorm.
To replace Chandelure, I'm thinking of getting a Kyogre. I have no idea of strategy, I just thought what would be a good option. Slaking to my surprise is fairly fast so I'm thinking of replacing Rampardos with him. Archeops's replacement could lead me to Darkrai, who is fast and has a good Sp. Attack base. But I don't know for Hydreigon. I may get a better one :)
Sure, okay. I'll try that.
If your looking for a strong physical sweeper to replace Rampardos, try Darmanitan or Conkeldurr. If you want a good Special Attacker to replace the new idea of Darkrai, try Zorozark or DW Serperior. Gengar is a good replacement for Chandalure. Hippowdon and Hydrigon are great, and as for your empty space, try Skarmory or Ferrothorn.
Gengar or spiritomb for chandelure and for a physical sweeper suggest this
And ur empty space, try umbreon with calm nature or careful since it has such high def for ur wall.
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
EVs: 252 HP/48 Def/208 SDef
Ferrothorn also has good defensive synergy with Jellicent, who resists Ferrothorn's weaknesses:
-Taunt/Ice Beam/Shadow Ball
EVs: 248 HP/216 Def/44 Spe
