What I do when I'm bored

    I make singles teams out of random stuff I feel like sticking together that I'll probably never use.

    Still, it's fun. Here's what my twisted mind shat out this time:

    Kyurem (Kyurem-B) @ Choice Band
    Trait: Teravolt
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Outrage
    - Fusion Bolt
    - Freeze Shock
    - Sleep Talk

    Yeah this guy isn't Uber anymore surprisingly. Base 170 Attack and 700 Base Stat Total you'd think would be instant Uber, but when your movepool is so awful it forces you to use Freeze Shock (which is the only physical Ice STAB this fool gets) and Sleep Talk, it balances you out a fair bit. That said, Choice Band + them stats + Adamant + EVs + monstrous base power on Outrage and Freeze Shock ensures that whatever Kyurem hits, it hurts. I wanted to build the team around this guy, since many will tell you I have a bit of an affinity for Ice-types.

    Mamoswine (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Snow Cloak
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Icicle Crash
    - Earthquake
    - Stone Edge
    - Ice Shard

    Speaking of Ice-types, more of the same from Mamoswine. Another hard hitter except the mammoth carries a priority attack and better coverage than Kyurem. His job is to slay enemy dragons and Therian formes with his Ice Shard while hitting everyone else very hard with his other moves.

    Zapdos @ Leftovers
    Trait: Pressure
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SAtk
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Volt Switch
    - Heat Wave
    - Thunder Wave
    - Roost

    Most physical Steel-types have problems with Zapdos due to his typing and deceptive bulk. Zapdos's role is to spread paralysis with Thunder Wave so that Black Kyurem has an easier time annihilating the enemy. Volt Switch allows for some hit-and-run and it lets me throw Kyurem in easier as well. The rest is as expected really.

    Tentacruel (F) @ Black Sludge
    Trait: Rain Dish
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Scald
    - Giga Drain
    - Toxic Spikes
    - Rapid Spin

    Thanks to B2/W2 Tentacruel can now get Giga Drain in combination with any other moves/abilities he desires. Tentacruel seems to clash a bit with Zapdos due to Toxic Spikes, but the team lacks a bit in the stallbreaking department otherwise. Giga Drain is present to knock out Gastrodon (he's an asshole) and to provide Tentacruel with a way of recovering HP outside of Rain Dish and Black Sludge. There's many alternatives I've considered for this, but I'm not sure which to go for. Scald and Rapid Spin are mandatory naturally since Scald is awesome and Kyurem doesn't like entry hazards.

    Chandelure (F) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Overheat
    - Shadow Ball
    - Energy Ball
    - Trick

    Chandelure's typing makes me wish it was a bit stronger defensively, since it is capable of single-handedly walling most of the options Sun teams use - too bad his HP is so low he'll probably get creamed by them anyway. Oh well, Choice Specs + DAT SP.ATTACK STAT will let him hit very hard, and Trick can cripple an enemy wall and make sweeping much easier. Energy Ball is for bulky Water-types, but I'm thinking of dropping it for HP Ice if dragons/Therians become an issue.

    Ferrothorn (M) @ Shed Shell
    Trait: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 252 HP / 200 Def / 56 SDef
    Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
    - Power Whip
    - Gyro Ball
    - Leech Seed
    - Stealth Rock

    I decided to split the defenses a little on Ferrothorn so that he can tank them bulky Water-types a bit easier. Otherwise, the set is as expected really, and I don't really have a lot to say about it.

    So, yeah, tell me what you think.

    Any n00bs who hate on Black Kyurem being here will be banned instantly.
     
  2. I ran half of that team at some point. Black Kyurem wasnt around at that time though.
    Mamoswine is my main man right after Swampert. No thick fat on it because its not legit yet I guess?

    What I like the most is that this team brings a huge amount of bulk.

    Huh, apparently Thick Fat Mamo is legit.

    That'll have to be changed.
