    The Counter Index

    I had an idea for a project, probably one of the biggest that has ever been attempted for competitive pokemon. So huge is this undertaking that I want the feedback of a few seasoned battlers before I start. If this works, competitive pokemon will never be the same. But before I go through...

    Polarized Teams

    Polarized teams are teams that have a lot of weaknesses to a type, and then, to balance those weaknesses, have a lot of resistances to the same type. This team, for example: is completely polarized to ice attacks (and almost completely polarized to fire). Some people look on a...

    The OU Defensive Algorithm

    This team was created by analyzing metagame factors, combined with hours of mixing and matching, to find a team that works perfectly with itself and in opposition of the rest of the metagame. It has an insane amount of defense, but with enough damage dealing to make it immediately threatening...

    The Sky Drop Team (An OU Triples Gimmick)

    Sky Drop is an amazing move. On the first turn, you and an opponent go into the air, where neither the pokemon that attacked nor the pokemon designated as the target can take any actions. On the second turn, if the opponent's pokemon goes first, its attack fails. If your pokemon goes first, it...

    The Resistance Team

    Usually, I post my crazy gimmick teams in the RMT section, but this isn't one team so much as a new way to build teams. Take this team, for instance: It's an average Trick Room team in RU, with decent coverage and a healthy 3 TR users. It doesn't have any awful weaknesses or obvious...

    The Team of a True Master (OU)

    Look at this team. What do you see? It has a harsh Fighting and Ground weakness, the synergy isn't too great, and the pokemon in it are common and unremarkable. The team even uses an Excadrill outside of Sandstorm. So what's so great about this team? Why is this the team that a true...

    A Truly Legendary RMT (OU)

    This is a team built entirely from the small number of legendary pokémon (that is, only 1 per game) that are usable in Smogon’s OU tier. It’s a bulky offensive team, and I think the members support each other well. Without further ado, here are the pokémon I chose: The Team...

    The Perfect Square Team (another one of my half-mad creations)

    For those of you who haven’t seen my other crazily-limited team, the Z-team, it was based on the idea of building a team using exclusively pokémon which had the letter Z in their names. Now, I have managed to find a restriction that is even more insane: the national dex number of every pokémon...

    An OU Team from a UU Trainer

    Before, I had been solidly grounded in UU, and not too many people respected me for it. 90% or more of the teams that I had rated were OU, but I had no reputation for designing OU teams of my own. Now, it’s time to prove that I can conquer OU. This is my ultimate team, the culmination of...

    The Dragonslayer

    Dragons are a huge part of OU nowadays, with the newly powerful Multiscale Dragonite, as well as Haxorus and the now-OU-not-Ubers-for-some-reason Latios. So I have to ask, how do you deal with them? If a team has even the slightest of Dragon weaknesses, they will tear it apart. What are the...

    The Z-Team

    This team is limited by a weird criterion I set for myself: every pokemon on the team must have the letter Z in its name. This restricts me to 20 or so pokemon to choose from, but I think the team turned out pretty well. Team Building: I started out with one of my favorite pokemon and the...

    Gravity in Competitive Play

    I recently made a team based off of Gravity, a great field effect that was introduced in 4th Gen. It has really useful effects such as ignoring Levitate and the flying type of opponents (EQ hits everything) and making any move with 60 or more accuracy always hit. Still, I haven't seen a single...

    V-Destroy

    This is a 3-pokémon team that makes use of one of the most powerful moves ever devised, V-Create. I use a gimmick to ignore its stat-lowering aspects. Liepard @ Choice Band Ability: Prankster Nature: Adamant EVs: 252 Atk, 252 HP, 4 Spd - Assist The idea is simple. When Liepard uses...

    Gravihazard in UU (the 2nd attempt)

    This is the continuation of my original Gravihazard team, which I had posted a little while earlier. The idea was to set up Gravity and a lot of hazards so that nobody could avoid the hazards. Gravity also lets my pokemon use wildly inaccurate moves, and helps their type coverage (ground and...

    Gravihazard in UU

    I know it says UU, but I'll probably test this out in OU if it works well. Anyway, I wanted to make a team that uses entry hazards to their highest potential, so I worked a lot of this team around getting the hazards in play and getting switch-outs. I added Gravity so that even flying types...

    Usage vs. Usefulness

    The whole concept of tiers being determined by usage doesn't seem that fair to me, but that's just my opinion. I looked at the data that Smogon collected for the battles on its server, and some of the least-used pokemon could be good in OU. Bronzong, for instance, is a great counter to most OU...

    Sacrifice Team in RU

    I've always liked the idea of having a pokemon explode, or somehow bring the foe down into oblivion with its final breath, so I made a team that does that in 5 different ways. Please do not comment on abilities / items that are not yet available in Black and White. I'm assuming they will be...

    Special Baton Passing Team in UU/NU

    ;313;;471;;135;;176;;275;;157; This is a team that uses the amazing boost from a Baton Passing Volbeat to attack with serious power. Since this team fits entirely into UU or even NU, it can cause a lot of devastation, though I see this team able to face OU teams as well. Even if the initial...

    Highly Strategy-Based (No Sweeping) Borderline Team

    I made a lot of strategies and combined them into a unique team without any big bad sweepers. It has some Sunny Day, so none of the pokemon have water moves. It also has Trick Room, so none of them are reliant on speed (except the leads). The basic idea is to send out Accelgor and then Leafeon...
