• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Hi all,
instead of making a OU team,I decided to make a UU team.

Crobat @ Leftovers

My lead.Set taken off Smogon.Taunt allows me to Taunt any Toxic Spikes Roserade or Stealth Rock Uxie.Brave Bird as my primary attacking move,Roost for Brave Bird recoil recovery and U-Turn for scouting.

Claydol @ Light Clay
Careful Nature

Impish Nature
200 Defense / 252 SpDefense / 56 Attack
Pressure Ability

Spin blocker and PP staller.Spite+Pressure = 6 PP lost.Taunt and Sucker Punch is a good combo.Protect is to PP stall after Taunt.Taunt also destroys Blisseys with Seismic Toss.

Scyther @ Focus Sash
Jolly Nature
4 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Speed
Technician Ability

Focus Sash allows Scyther to get a Swords Dance in if Stealth Rock is not in play,then it follows up to sweep with its high speed.

My special sweeper.Rest is a form of recovery.Paired up with Natural Cure,Shaymin has free 100% health recovery.Seed Flare as its STAB move.Earth Power and Hidden Power[Ice] are for coverage.

Crobat's attacking EV's allow it to KO machamp, machamp's not in UU meaning you can change that.
164HP/136Atk/212Spe gets a lefties point and also outruns the next fastest thing in OU; Swellow. though it may be outrun by some scarfed thing, they'd probably outrun it at max spe anyway.
Claydol would benefit more from max HP than DEf i think, but i'm not sure, the whole def> hp or hp>def thing confuses me.
this is a UU team and you want your spiritomb to taunt blissey? not to mention spiritomb wouldn't be affected by seismic toss anyway.
Protect should go for pain split, although the whole PP stalling set seems a bit gimmicky anyway.
Also his EV's should be something like:
252Hp/216Def/40Atk or SpD since you'll be mainly switching him in on physical attackers DEF is the most important. HP needs max since it has such a low base.
Scyther should lead if you use him without a Rapidspinner, so if i was you i'd just change him for a more reliable physical sweeper, like altaria.
Slowbro should be 212Hp/216Def/80SpA or SpD and you should replace thunder wave with Hidden Power (electric) since with one move you're likely to be beaten down by stuff that resist it.
you should give shaymin Choice Specs to give him a hard hit, and you should also switch out rest for another attack, like air slash or psychic. Since i doubt shaymin will get down to low enough health to warrant using rest over another attacking option.

Wow, three of those guys are on my UU/NU team!


For my claydol I use
252 HP / 252 Def / 6 Sp Def
But you can use whatever.

And for scyther I suggest Reversal and focus sash.
It surprises aggron and other steel and rock walls in UU/NU

I suggest replacing shaymin with a rapid spinning starmie, so that you still have a special sweeper and can clear rocks for scyther.

I apologize for that post, it slipped my mind, I have seen the tiers before and got shaymin mixed up again somehow...


so adorable...
Well, try to keep up to date. =) Metagame constantly changes.

Claydol and Spiritomb need 252 HP. Without it, they cannot take hits.

Focus on Slowbro's strengths. Don't bother maxing Special Defence because you don't want it to take special hits. If you want something to take special hits, use Slowking. Slowbro is the bulky Water of the two.
