After getting disconnected on the smogon server (seriously this needs fixing) and getting haxed down from #1. I had to get voting reqs again by working my way back up the ladder. ~~ Anyway i put my previous #1 team away and I built this team to test some new ideas i had for stall and its worked ok, its not as good as some as my other teams (obviously) but it holds its own. Im posting this because it has some issues that i would like to fix.

On to the team;

Overview



(M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Spikes
- Giga Drain
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Rest

Roserade is so very much underated as a Spiker in this metagame and definately one of the more reliable ones (Forretress sucks, really :/). I was one of the first people to use this set last gen and made the evs you see standard and im so glad it still works fantastically. It gets free Spikes on so many things thing generation its unreal. With the return of prominence of bulky waters i.e Rotom-W, Politoed, Quagsire, Gastrodon, Jellicent and rain in genera etc this thing is essentially a free switch in to them setting up on them with ease laughing off even Ice Beams. It also checks things like Breloom hence the defense evs. Giga Drain and HP Fire lets it immediately threaten Rotom-W + Scizor Volt-Switching chains and also cores such as Jellicent and Ferrothorn. Rest is in the last slot as its essentially a free heal with Natural Cure every time i switch. One of Roserades oft overlooked abilities is to absorb Toxic Spikes which often plague the battle field thanks to Rain Stall and Tentacruel and Tabloos team.

(F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Lava Plume
- Stealth Rock
- Roar
- Toxic

Heatran is part one of my anti weather core and part two of my grass/fire water core. Heatran poops on most sun teams and he sets up my last layer of residual damage see: Stealth Rock. Heatran is also my PHazer and checks to stupid random things like Sigilyph and Nubjask along with more standard things such as Scizor and Jirachi. Toxic cripples water switch ins and Lati@s which makes Gliscors job easier late game specially with Spikes racking up on the former. Lava Plume burns physical switch ins which is always fun. Not alot to say about this guy really apart from he is one of the things that switch into Dragon moves along with Jirachi. It sucks when sun teams have Duggy though.

(M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 248 HP / 212 Def / 48 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp
- Surf
- Recover

Jellicent is pat two of my anti weather core and part three of my grass/fire/water core. Jellicent is the main anti rain Pokemon of the team pooping on thngs like Toxicroak and Specs Politoed. Jelli also blocks Rapid Spin from near on everything if i play it correctly. Will-o-Wisp to cripple guys like Scizor and Taunt to stop Recovery on tanks and walls. I also chose Surf over Scald as the power is very appreciated on things like Tyranitar and Heatran and i have Wisp anyway. With Recover this thing sticks around for ages and is nearly alaways an mvp for my team. Im thinking of putting Toxic somewhere as Volcarona is an absolute ass to my team. I tested it before and it didnt work so well though so idk, that and it doesnt help vs Sub Volc at all.

(M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Taunt
- Swords Dance
- Ice Fang
- Earthquake

This is the last part of my anti weather core, Gliscor. He beats sand based threats like Excadrill extremely well and with Spikes and SR up can often sweep as waters are like the only thing stopping it. Ice Fang is chosen along with STAB EQ as D-Nite is an absolute ass and it also nails Landorus nicely. Taunt shuts down set up attempts and lets me set up on junk like Skarmory. Gliscor also takes status (along with Starmie and Rosrade) for my team which is an amazing selling point. Swords Dance Gliscor is actually very hard to stop tbh. Considering Facade over Ice Fang though as it seems fun and hits Rotom-W and the like reasonably hard, but still, D-Nite :\ lol. Gliscor is a weak link along with Starmie though.

@ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Body Slam
- Iron Head
- Wish
- Protect

Jirachi is the most dominant special wall in 5th generation OU. There i said it. "But D_A, Blissey!" No, bliss has way to many issues to be considered THE most dominant anymore. For one many of the special attackers can just breeze past her without a sweat and stuff like Psyshock makes her job insanely hard, that and people use the Bold spread which is 2hko'd by things like Poli Hydro Pump etc. Anyway back to Jirachi it destroys Lati@s and the majority of threatening things in B/W such as the broken Reuniclus and even Thundurus struggles with this guy. Body Slam and Iron Head creates the paraflinch combo which abuses Serene Grace so well. Wish and Protect lets me cushion my team when switching in and heals things like Heatran who have no recovery of their own. So far Jirachi has been awesome for me.

@ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Rapid Spin
- Thunderbolt
- Surf
- Recover

Last but not least is Starmie. Starmie removes hazards from the field and thats about it really apart from stopping random Gyarados. Starmies revenge killing utility is good too in pinch situations against certain threats. It also threatens Jellicent looking to block its Spin with Thunderbolt. Recover lets it switch around a while. Starmie is definitely my weakest link though and there really isn't alot to say about it at all lol.


Issues

- DD Ice Punch Scrafty is a 6-0 if i dont get hax on it with Jira
- I struggle with this alot. Not sure why but i do.
- This + dug = gg.
- NP + EP = =[ lol
(SmashPassing) - Gorebyss is the passer and Tran cannon Phaze and even if i did i need Dragon Tail for Espeon.

Quagsire sort of beats the first two but eh, cant fit it in.

So yeah rate away, looking to fix those issues. :]
