Competitive Team HelpHaving trouble with your competitive Pokémon team? Be sure to check here if you need any help on it. Any teams intended for in-game and casual play should be posted in the In-Game Team Help sub-forum.
Hey there. I'm not new to pokemon but I have very little competitive battle experience. I've only played competitively against a couple of friends in Gen IV but I really never had great team building or synergy. I am open to any team changes.
I was thinking of replacing Cloyster for a more reliable wall. Plus, my team could use a cut down on Ground Type weaknesses. Was thinking of replacing Cloyster and Metagross for more speed and resistance.
Medicham is mediocre in OU play because while it has great Attack courtesy of Huge Power, its average Speed lets it down. While Conkeldurr is a lot slower than Medicham, it has good enough defenses to compensate:
-Ice Punch/Payback/Stone Edge
EVs: 120 HP/252 Atk/136 SDef
I agree that Cloyster needs to go. Forretress makes a better Rapid Spinner, and you're in a dire need of hazards here:
-Gyro Ball/Hidden Power (Ice)
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Shed Shell
EVs: 252 Atk
Item: Custap Berry
Given my suggestion of Forretress, you have too many Steels. A Dragon of your own might be ideal here, such as Dragonite, Hydreigon, Lati@s or Salamence. One can go over Empoleon.
