I've been trying to build a new Gen V OU singles team with some of the allstars from my old teams. I have 4 members so far and I have two spots left to fill with some other Pokemon.

I'm thinking maybe some kind of bulky water type but I don't know I'm kind of stuck on what I should try.

Please keep in mind that I'm building this in White2 so everything has to be 100% legit and accessible to the games

TEAM SO FAR:


Lucario (m) @Choice Specs
Trait: Steadfast
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Aura Sphere
- Psychic
- Shadow Ball
- Hidden Power [Ice]

My specially offensive Lucario. I find it to be so helpful when my opponent assumes he is a regular physical lucario, especially considering how typical all my other team members are. Psychic and Shadow Ball have saved my life more times than I can remember when someone switches in to a Psychic or slow fighting type Pokemon. Hidden Power removes a lot of threat from dragons and is extra coverage over Dragon Pulse.


Scizor (m) @Life Orb
Trait: Technician
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- U-Turn
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
- Superpower

Pretty standard U-Turn Technician Scizor. I gave him Aerial ace to take advantage of Technician and U-Turn over Bug Bite for easy switching.
Superpower now replaces Aerial Ace as PlatinumDude has recommended to take care of Heatran on switching.



Salamence (m) @Choice Scarf
Trait: Moxie
Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- Outrage
- Dragon Claw
- Aqua Tail
- Earthquake

I think this exact Salamence set is on Smogon, he is my late game sweeper. Cleans up with Outrage and the Scarf lets me outspeed other dragons including Garchomp.


Gliscor (m) @Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
Impish Nature (+Def, - SpA)
EVs: 252 HP / 52 Def / 204 Spe
- Protect
- Toxic
- Earthquake
- Substitute

Standard Toxic stall set. I like using him because my friends get severely frustrated when they can't do anything to me. He carries Earthquake in case I get taunted and/or if Salamence is out prematurely.



What do you guys think? I need two more members to wrap up this team, I find I have good synergy between Scizor, Lucario and Salamence usually although I do have a few obvious weaknesses to exploit, like fire and ice.

Offensive Swords Dance Scizor should use a max Attack/max Speed spread to outspeed walls. Superpower/Brick Break is still preferred because it hits Heatran on the switch. U-turn wipes away any boosts that Scizor has accumulated by removing it from battle:
-Swords Dance
-Bullet Punch
-Acrobatics/Bug Bite
-Superpower
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Flying Gem/Life Orb
Ability: Technician

Have you considered Jellicent? It resists Fire/Ice:
-Scald/Night Shade/Shadow Ball
-Will-o-Wisp
-Taunt
-Recover
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/252 Def/8 SDef
Item: Leftovers

or
-Scald
-Shadow Ball/Ice Beam
-Will-o-Wisp/Toxic
-Recover
Nature: Calm
EVs: 248 HP/40 Def/220 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb

or
-Water Spout
-Shadow Ball
-Hydro Pump/Surf/Scald
-Ice Beam/Giga Drain
Nature: Modest
EVs: 172 HP/252 SAtk/84 Spe
Item: Choice Specs
Ability: Water Absorb

I dunno how to fill in the last slot, though.

I might have a look into Jellicent. As for Scizor, I might redo the EVs to max out speed then and give it Superpower, I'm keeping U-Turn however.

So I still need one more 'mon. Jellicent and who else, anyone?

If Scizor is using U-turn, it's best used for bulky Swords Dance Scizor to let it scout early to mid game.

I'm not really into hardcore competitive battling, so I don't know if this would be a good recommendation, but anyway:

How about a Bold natured Blissey with Natural cure ability, maxed in hp and the other EVs spread in defense and special def? Teach it Toxic, soft boiled, stealth rock (breeded) / Protect, and Minimize.

Boom! you have a healing tank capable of taking hits that will watch 4 pokes die slowly but surely before it gets in the danger zone itself.
The reason I'm recommending this is because my own Blissey's such a valuable key pokemon in my team herself!

The evasion clause in OU prevents the use of Minimize :\
Thanks for the reply
