    Default Monoflying RMT (WiFi OU)

    Okay, because I'm finding less and less love for my "Rate my one pokemon" stuff, I'm posting the whole team (okay, it probably IS a better idea not to do it individually). So here it is,


    Salamence@Choice Scarf
    Atk252/Spd252/Hp4
    Moxie - Adamant
    M:
    Outrage
    Fire Fang
    Earthquake
    Zen Headbutt
    Outrage

    Usually my lead, he can be accurately described as all bite and no bulk. He helps the team a lot in taking out those darn cloysters by raging them down to around half Hp before they shell smash and, when koed by the inevitable icicle spear. Allows honchkrow to finish it with a suckerpunch, taking advantage of the cut defenses)


    Yanmega@charti berry
    Def128/Spdef128/Spatk252
    Speed boost - Modest
    M:
    Protect
    Bug Buzz
    Psychic
    Giga Drain

    Taking advantage of his speed and moveset to inflict damage where few expect it. He shines most against rain teams with giga drain doing supereffective damage to politoed and Psychic finishing unsuspecting toxicroak.


    Honchkrow@power herb
    Atk252/Spd22/Hp4
    Moxie - Adamant
    M:
    Suckerpunch
    Superpower
    Sky Attack
    Foul Play

    Great for finishing opponents with STAB suckerpunch. Few recognize his potential with Atk equal to that of landorus and higher than blaziken plus access to moxie.


    Gyarados@choice band
    Atk252/Spd252/Hp4
    Moxie - Adamant
    M:
    Outrage
    Aqua Tail
    Ice Fang
    Stone Edge

    Filling a similar niche to Salamence's he boasts the ability to 1hko a hippowdon with only 1 moxieboost aqua tail. Little can take his aqua tail and survive, less can take it unscathed.


    Skarmory@leftovers
    Atk200/Sp.def211/Hp168
    Sturdy - Adamant
    M:
    Swords Dance
    Iron Head
    Drill Peck
    X-scissor

    Yes, not the norm for a skarmory but it works. He was originally used for entry hazards but he took so many taunts I nearly ditched him. I didn't because Skarmory is the only pokemon on my team that could effectively take out a mammoswine with the only offensive move he knew at the time, iron head. So he became my defencive sweeper.

    Togekiss@expert belt
    Sp.Atk200/Spd100/Hp208
    Serine Grace - Modest
    M:
    Aura Sphere
    Silver Wind
    Air Slash
    Ominus Wind

    Silver/Ominus wind help boost stats in a pinch while the rest is mainly coverage. It has enough natural bulk to take a bit of punishment giving it good opportunity to do some damage.

    Biggest threats:
    Cloyster, Mammoswine, and baton pass spammers. Edit: Genesect

    Nonthreats
    psychic types, bug types (except genesect) and sandstorm teams

    @Shadow B; Is this singles. If so I'll give you a rate.
    PM me and I'll rate your team.

    Oops, yeah,
    It is singles, it's too risky to use this monotype in doubles because of common weaknesses

    @Shadow B.;

    The following set completely outclasses your current Salamence with superior coverage and power. You should also certainly not be leading with it.

    Salamence (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Lonely Nature (+Atk, -Def)
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Fire Blast
    - Dragon Claw

    The following Gyarados set also far outclasses yours. Intrimidate over moxie since Gyarados is far to slow to even attempt a sweep whilst Outrage is dropped because it is a rubbish non-stab move and Aqua Tail is replaced by waterfall for reliability.

    Gyarados (F) @ Choice Band
    Trait: Intimidate
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Waterfall
    - Ice Fang
    - Earthquake
    - Stone Edge

    That Yanmega is just...bad. It doesn't really clear a lot for your team and just adds to the stuff that beats you. Zapdos can fill the slot to give you a reasonable Genesect check and also a check to common rain offense teams with Tornadus-T.

    Zapdos @ Leftovers
    Trait: Pressure
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Heat wave
    - HP Ice
    - Roost
    - Thunderbolt

    Stealth Rock is a massive issue for your team and Togekiss doesn't seem to be doing a lot so Xatu over him. I don't think I need to post the set for that. Also the Honckrow set is outclassed by others for reasons I've mentioned in other threads. I'm not going to bother discussing the Skarmory. All I'll say is that it shouldn't be there.

    I like trying to be inventive, but I agree, after testing a bit more I found more trouble. Thanks for the advice, I will probably be keeping skarmory but changing up the EVs and moveset because the one thing it IS good for is taking hits from those annoying mammoswine, cloyster and weavile.

    I'm also thinking of getting a gliscor to replace the spot of either yanmega or togekiss because of his defensive stats which happen to be quite uncommon among flying types.

    @Shadow B.; Skarmory checks all of those things with defensive spreads.

    Some of the stuff on your team isn't 'inventive' or 'creative', it is outright outclassed by better options.
