Moderators: I assume that we can post other competitive battling topics here, and not just RMT's, but if not feel free to close this. (I'm just trying to help the CBC get some more activity other than RMT's)

Since all of us here have teams built for competitive battling, I assume that most players will have a Pokemon that seems to shine above the rest of their team. For you, what is the MVP of your current team? If your team is constantly changing, or you have different teams for different tiers, which Pokemon have you used on any of your teams that you think is the MVP?

For me, it is probably my TR sweeper, Reuniclus.

TR Reuniclus was MVP on my team, when it was on. However I wanted my team to be heavily offensive, so I replaced it. Anyhow I think that the MVP on my offensive team is SubPunch Breloom, he's such an annoying .... y'know. Spore hits 100% of the time, (in most circumstances) I then sub then leech seed, then proceed to destroy them with Focus Punch. Ghosts just go "lol" at this set though ):

Honestly, I construct my teams so that each Pokemon has an equal and significant role to my team's success, if a Pokemon is lacking, then it's removed. Although, I'll be honest, I had to rely on Terrakion to net me a ton of kills, so I guess I could say it was the MVP of my old team, and while I'm hoping it doesn't get banned, I wouldn't consider it to be an unfair ban, as it certainly wreaks a copious amount of havoc. I really hate to rely on broken Pokemon like Reuniclus and Latios, the former being the more dangerous of the two, to win a match, I like seeing everything all come together, instead of just letting one mon beat everything.

    I gotta say, I really favor my Heatran.

    Heatran's been a great asset to my team, especially when he can pull of Stealth Rock. Also, HP Ice has been invaluable, plus he can take hits like a champ. Personally, one of the best Leads I've used yet.

    But I might have to agree with Dragonomega. Loom's been great to me too.

      Haunter and Hitmonlee! I've never played competitively but I've beaten the entire Elite four with just those two.
      I'm really not excited about this...

        Errrgh every Pokemon on my team is an MVP. In order of usefulness,

        Regenerator Slowbro
        Impostor Ditto

        ^ those two are my favorite Pokemon, so I just have to have them on all my teams :(

        Zoroark lead, dressed up as Ferrothorn. Everyone and their mother runs something weak to Rock or Fire as their lead, and Zoroark does nicely to get rid of them. Plus, he eats Magnezone that tries to switch in on me...

          Emerald: Blaziken, even when he was 20 levels under a Pokemon with high stats, he'd still kick their arses!

          Fire Red: Pidgeot or Charizard. Both were insanely helpful.

          Silver: Typhlosion for sure.

          Crystal: Either Feraligatr or Suicune

          Soul Silver: In this game, I made it more "Everyone's equal", so I don't exactly have one. Also, I transferred a ton of Pokes from Emerald and Fire Red that were like almost double the levels of all my Pokemon so they are wayyy stronger.

              CB Tar. I never thought it would be the MVP on my team, but after a TR from Reuniclus it just nabs so many kills. Might even end up as a sweep.

              The MVP for my current team is Choice Scarf Hydreigon because it usually gets a kill in before switching out. An honorable mention goes to Ferrothorn for taking hits like a champ.

                      My Volcarona must be the star on my team.
                      He's strong and fast, and after a Quiver Dance, he can sweep a lot of pokés, if they don't resist his STABs.

                        In more recent teams I've used, it would be MixTar. I used to not use Tyranitar very much, and when I did, it would only be for setting up Sandstorm/SR, but I can't see why I used to do that, now.

                                  Can't believe Excadrill wasn't even mentioned. Maybe everyone is just too annoyed with how well it works...

                                  Anywho, my MVP is definitely Scarf Jirachi. Iron Head will destroy almost anything with its 60% flinch rate, and with all three elemental punches under its belt, there is little that can avoid being hit super effectively with proper prediction (not to mention a 20% chance to freeze, burn, or paralyze respectively.)
                                  Our Pokemon are the same, but somehow yours are better just because you want to spend hours doing what I can do in minutes. Copy this into your sig if you think that anti PokeSav/PokeGen arguments are rediculus.

                                    @cartercr: ScarfRachi is pretty decent, but the lack of power makes it kinda hard to kill something with flinch hax or super effective hits. ThunderPunch is pretty useless outside of Gyarados since other Water-types like Jellicent take a pittance from it anyway. I'd much prefer Trick to screw over Skarmory or something.

                                    I think Scarf Abomasnow is pretty neat, especially when you need a weather check and none of your other members need to rely on Hail. Fast STAB Blizzards are admittedly very spammable that sometimes I wish I had more than just 8PP. SR can be played around, but it's still kinda annoying.
