Washed Away (Water Team RMT)

Post by Psychoreality on Mon Apr 24, 2017 1:39 am

This is a bit of a gimmicky rain team, but there's a reason for that. The reason I generally run gimmicks is because it's almost a twisted version of CQ anti-meta. The CQ meta is either terrifyingly stupid or very stock, and by putting a team somewhere in the middle it throws everyone off and can create fun opportunities. Anyway, onto the team.

Snake Bite (Gyarados) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Moxie
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Waterfall
- Crunch
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge

My designated late-game cleaner. Gyarados is actually not as good as you'd expect on this team, but it can punch holes in squads with STAB Waterfall and EdgeQuake coverage.

Toilet Nigel (Pelipper) @ Leftovers
Ability: Drizzle
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpA
Bold Nature
- Hurricane
- U-turn
- Scald
- Roost

My main rain setter. Mainly used for eating hits and as a pivot into my Seismitoad or Lanturn because of the defensive core on this squad. 100% accurate Hurricane can also deal some damage to lead 'mons on types like Bug.

Frog (Seismitoad) @ Life Orb
Ability: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Power-Up Punch
- Poison Jab
- Earthquake
- Knock Off

Yes, that is a physical sweeper Seismitoad you see. I'm serious. This thing catches people off guard all over the place, and STAB Earthquake + Poison Jab is fantastic coverage. Knock Off also takes chunks off of walls like Slowbro, Chansey and P2 after a point.

I Eat Thunders (Lanturn) @ Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Heal Bell
- Volt Switch
- Scald
- Toxic

My cleric and one of the best 'mons on the team. VoltTurn defensive cores are very hard to come by and Pelipper + Lanturn really work together very well. Toxic allows you to take a chunk off of most Pokemon in the game, and Volt Absorb lets you switch in Lanturn on an Electric move to eat it.

I Eat You (Tentacruel) @ Black Sludge
Ability: Rain Dish
EVs: 252 HP / 224 SpD / 32 Spe
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Rain Dance
- Scald
- Rapid Spin
- Toxic Spikes

The funniest Pokemon on the team. Giving this thing Rain Dance allows Tenta to get extra recovery even against a Sand team or when Pelipper is dead. Rapid Spin and TSpikes make things super tough for the opponent, and it's also a spinner. Very worthwhile addition.

Personal Space (Palkia) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Spacial Rend
- Surf
- Flamethrower
- Thunder

The designated legend and Big Boy himself, Palkia. Specs allows Surf in rain to actually kill about 90% of mons and Spacial Rend to 2HKO most of the other ones. Timid lets it outspeed most other Specs 'mons and it's still bulky enough to take a fair amount of attacks that get thrown at it.

Only thing I want to mention is Flamethrower on Palkia... if you're using Rain are you sure you want to use that?

Actually, good point. I should swap that out for Ice Beam, I was just in need of a Ferrothorn beater. By the time I'm using Palkia rain isn't up most of the time anyway.
