    Tbh, I hadn't noticed it was a CB set, my point being it's a good Pokémon even when Rhyperior is said to outclass it. If you're running Dragon Tail, make sure to put up SR before you do, that way you abuse it fully.. mind you, with team preview on...take out all opposing water and grass types before you do.

    Grass-types aren't too big of a problem for Aggron, but I'll be sure to take those words to heart.

    And there was one battle where I got to abuse the hell out of Dragon Tail. It still puts a smile on my face just thinking about it. XD

    I don't see many Grass Knot users nowadays, but I imagine they'd be a problem. Another thing to be careful of, half your team is weak to fighting. Make sure you keep one of your psychics/flying alive to help, or something like Terrakion will walk all over your team.

    Except Terrakion isn't usable in the RU tier; it's restricted to OU and Ubers. Of course, other fighters, like Hitmonchan (who I strangely see more than Hitmonlee), might be a problem. If I still have Yanmega, though, they're usually dealt with.

    This isn't an OU team, lol. It would be pretty pathetic if it were.

    I can't really rate this team because I'm unfamiliar with this tier. I have, however, heard that rain is pretty prevalent. You may want to consider placing a sturdy water resist on your team.

    Oh, drat. I completely forgot that. Never mind Terrakion. Haven't played RU yet either, I totally forgot. Isn't heracross in RU? That could be an issue.

    I haven't seen it at all. I think it's UU.

    Anyway, I made a couple of updates to the movesets of Claydol and Aggron. Notifying for more current rates. I'm also considering posting this RMT on Smogon as my badge of RU pride; after all, it got me up to 12/2101 in Smogon's RU ladder on PO.

    Which is UU, Rain or Terrakion? Auto Rain and Terrakion are both OU, but Rain Dance can be used in any tier. I agree with Heathcliff though, you might need a hard rain counter, maybe Galvantula over Yanmega? I'm not sure how much it would hurt your synergy, but with Compoundeyes, you can run Thunder without worrying if Rain is up or not and it will still hit.

    I was talking about Heracross when I mentioned the whole UU thing. And frankly, I don't see Galvantula outpacing those Rain Dance-abusing Swift Swimmers that'd kill it before letting it fire off a Thunder. My best counter is Sharpedo, surprisingly; it only needs to get +2 Speed to outrun most of the Swift Swimmers, and it can injure them. Ludicolo won't like Crunch too much (though the pineapple will be a problem no matter what), and Kabutops will fall to Hydro Pump. Not to mention the fact that it can do a little Protect-stallin' to burn up those Rain turns.

    I don't know much about this tier either, but it looks like Jolly Gallade could deal some hefty damage, outspeeding Aggron, Porgon-Z before an Agility, and Sharpedo without a speed boost, and OHKOing with Close Combat. Against Sharpedo, even if Sharpedo outspeeds, it can't KO Gallade, and Gallade can KO in return. Have you seen much of Gallade though?

    A "double-post" with a purpose.

    Anyway, I'm updating this team, though there's only one change: I gave Sharpedo Surf over Hydro Pump. I also want to let BMGf know that Angad and I have a nice little treat for you all. We should have it up soon.

    and the child is named DCM Jr.

    now, to something constructive and relevant to the thread, I'm still not sure you've fully addressed the issue of the prevalent rain dance teams in this tier and your team's weakness to it.


    That being said, I love your usage of Yanmega, and I suppose Mega Giga Drain and Air Slash should be able to deal with Ludicolo.

    Why would he use Mega Drain on Yanmega over Giga Drain.
