I made an OU team and has recently just taken it's 3rd tournament victory, but I want more out of my team as any other competitive battler wants and so I come here for help.


Cloyster
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Skill Link
EV's: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
Nature: Adamant
Shell Smash
Icicle Spear
Rock Blast
Ice Shard

Cloyster is my late game sweeper and can plow through any weakened team after a shell smash. Cloyster also doubles as my substitute breaker with those multi-hit moves.


Breloom
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Technician
EV's: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly
Spore
Swords Dance
Mach Punch
Bullet Seed

Breloom is one of the most formidable pokemon in existence and my breloom is running your standard Technician set.


Metagross
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Clear Body
EV's: 252 Atk, 252 HP, 4 SpD
Nature: Jolly
Pursuit
Brick Break
Meteor Mash
Earthquake

Metagross is there to sponge dragon outrages which seem to be plentiful in the OU tier. Metagross is also very handy at forcing switches on pokemon such as Latias and Latios which means I almost always get that pursuit to deal some bonus damage.


Tentacruel
Item: Air Balloon
Ability: Liquid Ooze
EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
Giga Drain
Ice Beam
Scald
Sludge Bomb

Tentacruel is there to counter rain teams and dragon types as well as to wreak havoc on ground types and possibly get in a burn with scald.


Volcarona
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Flame Body
EV's: 252 HP, 204 Def, 52 Spe
Nature: Timid
Quiver Dance
Giga Drain
Bug Buzz
Fiery Dance

Volcarona is my special sweeper and sun team counter. Volcarona has swept many teams and leave people saving certain pokemon until I bring it out just so they stand a chance of beating it.


Starmie
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 SpD
Nature: Timid
Ice Beam
Psychic
Surf
Rapid Spin

Starmie is there for rapid spin relief for Cloyster and Breloom. Starmie also does very well against dragon types and has great type coverage for all around effectiveness.

That's my OU team and I'm sorry if the pictures were a little annoying as I thought some people would be able to interpret my team better with a little visual aid. I'm open to any advice, but I don't really like to use legendary pokemon although I will use them when necessary,
