I like more strategic parties but every now and then I try mixing things up a bit with a 1 turn party. This is a party I made specificly to focus on defence. tell me what you think. (This is for double battles with tournament rules)
Gigalith, holding life orb.
Probably the second most battle worthy on my team. his EXTREME lack of speed is made up for with sturdy and the life orb increasing damage dealt (does life orb affect explosion). I also need to say this is my favorite pokemon of all time above even blaziken.
Ferrothorn, holding big root
A: iron barbs
This guy should be able to withstand nearly anything. Double S.E. fire type moves can be a threat but a protect along with healing from leech seed and ingrain should be enough to rejuvinate. Yes big root does effect ingrain and leech seed.
Metagross, holding ether choice band or red card
A: Clear Body (like a regi! awwwwwyeah!!)
big physical fighter, he will probably have a choice band to power him up even more, I may also use a red card just to irritate opponents who use physical fire type fighters like infernape or blaziken. he is The most offencive on my team.
Mantine, holding cell battery
A: Water absorb
To help balance my team, mantine has the highest Sp.defence yet. Because of his item and ability he is immune to 3 types, one of which is otherwise x4 super effective. Mantine is also not only immune to, but can get a super effective hit on the ground types that are good on the rest of my party.
Shuckle, holding Chesto or lum berry
Cut opponents attack with power swap, poison target and wait it out. When faced with a poison or steel type this little guy is screwed. But metagross is good on poison and gigalith on steel.
num. 6 is open for suggestions.
Please reply with any help, suggestions or feedback!
I SHALL DOMINATE THE SPRING FRIENDLY!!!
