    Default Gen V OU Rain RMT (Updated First Post)

    These are all Pre-made Smogon sets, as I don't feel as though I can make a team from scratch just yet. This is a singles team.


    Politoed @ Leftovers
    Modest
    Drizzle
    252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
    ~Hydro Pump
    ~Ice Beam
    ~HP Grass
    ~Perish Song

    Notes: My Drizzle mon. I'm pretty happy with it. Hydro Pump hits like a tank. Perish Song is to stop sweepers but sadly usually can't do it because most of the sweepers I've battled against have been Dragon Dancers.



    Toxicroak @ Black Sludge
    Dry Skin
    Adamant
    4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    ~Swords Dance
    ~Drain Punch
    ~Sucker Punch
    ~Ice Punch

    Notes: My physical sweeper, I usually bring him into a water attack. I can set up swords dance pretty safely due to his double recovery. He's pulled of a lot of sweeps. I don't have many problems with him. Drain Punch gives me even more recovery. The only problem I have encountered is his speed.



    Jolteon @ Choice Specs
    Volt Absorb
    Timid
    252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    ~Thunder
    ~Volt Switch
    ~Shadow Ball
    ~HP Ice

    Notes: This spot was originally held by a BoltBeam Starmie, until I found out that my team had a gaping weakness to electric. Jolteon had the same coverage and an immunity to electric. I really haven't seen much use in Volt Switch.



    Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
    Sturdy
    Relaxed
    252 HP / 88 Def / 168 SpD
    ~Stealth Rocks
    ~Leach Seed
    ~Power Whip
    ~Gyro Ball

    Notes: My mon with stealth rocks as well as some much needed Grass stab, it's okay without protect because once rain is up it can survive at least one fire hit.



    Gengar @ Leftovers
    Levitate
    Timid
    4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    ~Substitute
    ~Thunder
    ~Shadow Ball
    ~Focus Blast

    Notes: Thunder had greatly increased his coverage.



    Tornadus @Life Orb
    Timid
    Prankster
    252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    ~Hurricane
    ~Focus Blast
    ~Rain Dance
    ~Taunt

    Notes: My new taunter and Hurricane abuser. I would go for his other form but this is going to be a team on my actual games. I might change it when ever BW2 are released in english. He also has Rain Dance to help me win weather wars.



    The BW2 tutor moves aren't much of a problem. I have a japanese white 2.

    Singles or doubles?

    if singles it's pretty good but those storm drain Gastrodon may be a major problem and drain punch instead of cross chop for faster recovery.

    If doubles i would suggest manectric with lightningrod instead of jolteon and a ludicolo (for those darn Gastrodon) with rain dish, leech seed, giga drain and leftovers.

    @Hawkeye ; Looks pretty solid all around. Disable or Thunder over w-o-w on Gengar. Shadow Ball over Signal Beam is usually better on Jolteon, but it's personal preference mainly. Choice Specs Timid Jolteon is an absolute beast and Jolteon really can't afford to take Lorb recoil or it just dies so quickly. Empoleon could be replaced by Ferrothorn since I don't really see it doing a whole lot as it is.

    How does your team handle Sand/Sun teams?

    Oddly in the like 20 battles I did today on PO I only encountered one Sun team and no Sandstorm teams. So I wouldn't really know.

    It looks okay for sand teams but I strongly suggest grass somewhere in there.
    maybe aforementioned ludicolo... maybe not

    Because of BW2 you can keep Drain Punch and Ice Punch so I would recommend it. Especially becuase Cross Chop seems to miss a lot even with its still High Accuracy.

    This will seem weird but on your T Croak as well go Life Orb. That plus a S Dance will kill of Therians that have came in on stealth Rocks. Landorus Depending as it will have intimidate and take less damage from those rocks.

    Thats all I have to say. Great Team

    As good as ferrothornintheside is defensively I'd suggest a protect instead of gyro ball. Ferrothorn does have great potential with gyro ball but without curse he falls a bit short.

    Also choice scarf politoed + rain + stab + hydro pump makes it an epic sweeper, (Actually choice scarf can make anything an epic sweeper) I'd suggest putting 104 speed evs 152 sp. def and 252 sp atk

    Gyro ball is an Essential to Ferrothorn. Most Pokemon are faster and the Survival of it lets you hit people with a beast Gyro Ball. Leech Seed/Protect stall is almost pointless in the new meta game. With new threats about you can easily counter it out. Its better just to go on the offensive now with it. As much as a Sweeper as it is I have come in to to many situations where Politeod gets countered out itself by something with Dry Skin or Water absorb or something that is a wall that can easily accept Hydro Pump in the rain. Its better to use it just to set up rain and cast out Toxic or Perish Song to throw your enemy off. Choice Scarf stops all of Politoes Potential.
    It does not fall a bit short? Gyro Ball with no Speed IV's is a monster. Falling a bit short is far from what Ferrothorn does.

    oops. I was thinking doubles again.

    ferrostalling like i suggested works best in doubles (with 2 leech seed targets) and perish song requres you to do a full switch out as well. In singles, Yes that would probably work better.

    Your jolteon will make a beautiful sweeper with those choice specs. Good avoiding common weakness. Very well balanced. You have backup rain dance, taunt. Very good team all in all.
