    Default Themed Teams #1



    Themed Teams #1
    Competitive battling definitely goes through swings, as we all know. Usage of Pokémon goes up and down, and is almost never constant. Consequently, team building processes must also sway to reflect the constantly changing metagame.
    But you know, sometimes we just want to go crazy and make a team just for the fun of it. That’s the purpose of this thread. The idea is simple—a theme will be given, and you have to decide on the Pokémon that fit the team and can be used. After this, members will discuss what Pokémon they want to use on the team, and decide on move sets. Finally, the team will be tested.
    This thread serves as the place for any discussion concerning this. Feel free to go crazy, but stay within the theme!
    The theme this time is

    I moustache you a question. Can you build the team?

    Use Pokémon that have mustaches. These Pokémon must be male. Beyond that, is up to you.
    Gyarados serves as one example.

    At the end, a battle showcasing the team will be posted.
    Rules:
    Be civil.
    Respect other people’s opinions. Just because you think that Scarfed Landorus is the perfect Pokémon for this team, doesn’t mean everyone else does.
    After you've discussed for some time, I will post saying it's time to vote. Then, vote for which Pokémon you want. You may vote for up to three Pokémon. The final list will then be made, and we'll add movesets.
    Good luck!

    Alakazam for Sp.Atk

    Metagross for Atk

    dusclops @ evolite for defences

    probopass for pure 'stache power

    water absorb jellicent + surfing whiscash for fun

    Walrein to keep our water type trend going

    samurott for the same reason

    Meinshao for fake outs

    cricketune for the same reason as probopass

    and the kami trio

    although I can't fit all of these into one party They are all powerful (except cricketune) in their own ways.

    - Nidoran Female (whiskers)
    - Meowth and Persian (whiskers)
    - Kadabra and Alakazam
    - Magikarp and Gyarados (barbels)
    - Magcargo (if that two sacs beside its nose counts)
    - Raikou
    - Entei
    - Swalot
    - Whiscash (barbels)
    - Sealeo and Walrein
    - Kricketune
    - Glameow and Purugly (whiskers)
    - Drapion
    - Abomasnow
    - Mamoswine
    - Probopass
    - Dewott and Samurott (whiskers in Dewott's case)
    - Herdier and Stoutland
    - Liepard (whiskers)
    - Boldore and Gigalith (if the red crystals under their eyes count)
    - Jellicent (male)
    - Mienshao

    I'm thinking that the optimal way to build this team would be to start off with an intimidate core consisting of Gyarados and Landorus-T because together they shut down a plethora of physically attacking threats as well as being reasonably effective in both Rain and Sandstorm. With no ability to run a weather of our own, hazard stacking is going to be pretty important.

    If we're hazard stacking then we'd want a spinblocker. Conviniently we have the Ghost/Water Jellicent for that.

    There's Abomasnow if you need weather. It would partner with Walrein for the moustached Ice-type pair. By the way, from the main post, I gather that the team doesn't need to have all Pokemon with the moustached theme. It's just that the focus of the team is that particular type.

    Thanks for reading.

    Mienshao could be decent in the Hail because of Regenerator.

    Pokemon that have mustaches (based on Winstein's list) that know Stealth Rock:
    Marcargo
    Mamoswine
    Probopass
    Gigalith
    Terrakion
    Cobalion
    Landorus

    So at least one of these pokemon has to be on the team if we want SR, Mamoswine looks optimal.

    Much love to Zurr

    Hail Moustache would be pretty awesome indeed. Gyarados or Jellicent and Abomasnow have surprisingly good synergy together. Walrein and Mamoswine enjoy the Hail, and Alakazam/Mienshao work well in the hail too thanks to their abilities. Shame we don't get any Rapid Spinners as entry hazards destroy hail teams.

    Does Cryogonal have a moustache or is that its mouth? Its immunity to Hail and access to RS is worth mentioning.

    I doubt Cryptogonal falls into the tash category.

    Mamoswine or Landorus Therian are great for rocks. Jellicent having access to Recover likely makes it a better choice for Hail (This is sad because Gyarados goes great with Mamoswine and Landorus-T as well as being a great Volcarona check, regardless of set). Both Mienshao and Alakazam have great merit (Though provide zero defensive support).
