My New In-Game Competitive Team

Ballistic Buizel

caught shiny lati@s
This is an in game team. I went through alot of different Pokemon and used synergy to make this. I want to especially thank my clan, The Triumvirate, for their great input and helping me make this team and become a more confident battler :) First, I based my team off of Azelf.

Team Building Process and WHY I used Each Pokemon

Azelf is good. Overused. Has nice attack and special attack. I have a shiny flawless one that I received in a trade so I decided: why not? Then I moved on to the next member.

Weavile. Weavile gave good type coverage and defended Azelf nicely. Also, weavile is just beast. Then I decided to scrap weavile and instead added this new member.


Scrafty had better type coverage than weavile to defend azelf, and I felt that I needed a more bulky member of the team. But I was still debating whether to have scrafty or scizor.

Long story short, I scraped both weavile and scrafty for scizor. It just went better with azelf. And scizor is a little bit bulky, so it filled the place of scrafty perfectly.

I decided to add Chandelure. It provides nice type coverage and defends scizor. Plus I had a spare EV trained one with near flawless IV's so I wouldn't have to breed one. That's a definite plus.

I decided on Hydreigon. Not only do I have a near flawless one, but I feel that every team should have a nice dragon type. Plus, it's stats are great and I've got alot of good type coverage there.

I decided on another bulky member. I needed one. And Jellicent fit nicely. Plus, with water absorb, it works very well. And it reminds me of Dory from Finding Nemo because she finds that baby jellifish and then she names it squishy. Jellicent's name shall be squishy. And he shall be my squishy.

For my last pokemon I pretty much just wanted to be annoying as hell and have a hax rachi. Everyone hates them. They do their job nicely.

Team Building Process Once I Posted This Thread



/


Thanks to GM, he realized that my team was weak to dark types. So, I'm taking out Jellicent and replacing it with Conkeldurr.

The Movesets 'n all those dang details


Changes In Bold


Azelf @ Focus Sash
Timid (+ Speed, - Attack)
Levitate
252 Sp. Attack, 252 Speed, 4 Sp. Defense
-Psychic
-Flamethrower
-Grass Knot
-Stealth Rock
Note: I stole this set from smogon. If someone can help me customize it that would be greatly appreciated. I chose Azelf because I had a flawless one, and it has good type coverage. Also, it has nice special attack. It can learn a variety of differently typed moves, making a great moveset.


Scizor @ Leftovers
Adamant (+Attack, - Sp. Attack)
Technician
252 HP / 40 Atk / 216 SpD
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
- Bug Bite
- Roost

Note: I chose Scizor to defend Azelf's typing. Also, Azelf is a special attacker, whereas Scizor is a more bulky attacker. I needed bulk and variety. Thanks to GM for noticing, I had to many choice items on my team, so Scizor's item was changed to leftovers.


Chandelure @ Choice Specs
Modest (+Sp. Attack, - Attack)
Flash Fire
252 Sp. Attack, 184 Speed, 72 HP
-Overheat
-Shadow Ball
-Energy Ball
-Hidden Power (Fighting)
Note: Cannot change the EV spread. Chandelure was chosen to defend Scizor. Also, I wanted bulk, and I made the EV spread speedy, but with some HP to keep Chandelure alive for a while.


Hydreigon @ Choice Specs
Modest (+Sp. Attack, - Attack)
Levitate
252 Sp. Attack, 192 Speed, 64 HP
-Draco Meteor
-Dark Pulse
-Flamethrower
-Surf
Note: Cannot change the EV spread on this. I chose Hydreigon because I always like to have a dragon type on my team. They are very strong and they look beast. Hydreigon is another special attacker and also has good HP.


Conkeldurr @ Leftovers
Guts
Adamant (+Def, -Atk)
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
- Substitute
- Focus Punch
- Payback
- Mach Punch

Note: Thanks to GM, he made me realize that I had a weakness to dark types, so I changed Jellicent to Conkeldurr. I needed a fighting type for coverage.


Jirachi @ Kings Rock
Serene Grace
Careful
252 HP, 252 Sp. Defense, 4 Speed
-Body Slam
-Iron Head
-Wish
-Protect
Note: Dont' have the hax rachi completely figured out yet. Please help with it :p Basically chose this because I needed one more Pokemon and I wanted to be annoying. And hax rachi is awesome.

Don't be mean when you rate please, I'm not very skilled at competitive battling YET. YET.

Jirachi?

Jirachi is illegal in the Battle Subway-or on wifi???
this is a in-game rate? or is it a competitive team?
 
Well if it's just in-game you're ok :D

Jirachi nature: Careful
EVs: HP 252 252 Sp. Def 4 Speed

Everything else looks good. Good luck getting the EVs perfect when using this team for competive play too, it's hard.

Jellicent isnt doing much for the team. You have a water resistance in Hydreigon and it is only adding to your dark type weakness (azelf, chandelure, jellicent). So I suggest replacing it with this:

Conkeldurr @ Leftovers
Guts
Adamant (+Def, -Atk)
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
- Substitute
- Focus Punch
- Payback
- Mach Punch

It easily counters any dark type pokemon which give you problems ie Zoroark. It can act as a status absrober thanks to Guts, and can scout pokemon using substitute.

You also have 4 choice pokemon, what I would suggest is using SR on Azelf in the last slot and SD Scizor, ie the sets below.

Scizor @ Leftovers
Water Absorb
Adamant (+Def, -Atk)
252 HP / 40 Atk / 216 SpD
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
- Bug Bite
- Roost

Azelf @ Focus Sash
Timid (+ Speed, - Attack)
Levitate
252 Sp. Attack, 252 Speed, 4 Sp. Defense
-Psychic
-Flamethrower
-Grass Knot
-Stealth Rock

This way you get stealth rocks up to ensure more KO's and you aren't as restricted with all those choice items. I hope this helps :).

if this is supposed to be a competitive team put it there, also you need descriptions before you put it there, one liners and no liners under pokes won't cut it at all. I'll rate when this has been moved

and sub punch conkldurr is stupid. use bulk up and drain punch, the evs are bad too, 176 hp 252 attack 136 sp def

Give Jirachi Thunder Wave over Protect. Also, if he has Guts, Flame Orb on Conkeldurr.

Conkeldurr @Flame Orb
Guts
252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
Adamant
Protect
Mach Punch
Drain Punch
Stone Edge

Well, put Thunder Wave somewhere in there. Paraflinch haxrachi. It's not going to be outspeeding anything with those EVs.
