My second team ever

Ballistic Buizel

caught shiny lati@s
FYI I copied this from my RMT thread because I feel that I will get more feedback here:

This is an in game team, but I will also use it over wifi. 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

Adamant (+Atk, -SpAtk)
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
- Substitute
- Focus Punch

-Body Slam
-Iron Head
-Wish

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.

Energy Ball mekes it original and, face it, is more reliable.

That's the set I wanted you to use anyway so...


Chandelure @ Life Orb

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.
If you can. This makes it bulkier and faster at the cost of some power. Plus it is more sweepish. Do the life orb and pain split even if you can't get hold of the EV berries.

Modest (+Sp. Attack, - Attack)
Levitate
252 Sp. Attack, 192 Speed, 64 HP

- Rock Slide
- Drain
- Payback
- Mach Punch

Just makes it that bit better and bulkier, sort of.


Jirachi @ Kings Rock

-Substitute
-Iron Head
-Wish
-Body Slam

Body Slam negates Motor Drive, Substitute gives you back-up if hax fails, wish gives a HP restore and iron head is obvious.

I don't see anything wrong with azelf.

to be honest ignore barbellers rate, it's not good...


also about azelf, last gen it was good because it could explode for massive damage, but this gen since it was nerfed it's not as good, maybe try alakazam with specs for an anti lead?

That could be considered as a flame...

I do however agree with the thing about anti-lead stuff. Switching jirachi to the front would work, and it would let the set I gave (quite crap, I agree) a bit of time to set up and reach its potential (does that recompense?). Chandelure, keep pain split and life orb and ignore everthing else. Conkeldurr? Thinking back I would give it a flame orb and keep drain punch (to make up for the HP loss), and keep sub as it may be useful for payback. New special sweeper? Latios would work well, ice moves are resisted by the team in general.

That new advice isn't great but I generally develop ideas with time... I will be back! (with un-crap advice)

why would anyone run sub on jirachi???? wtf?

also flame orb on conk is a no no, he is a status absorber keep lefties.

as for the painsplit you need a scarfer and chandy does that, since you run overheat you should have the scarf so you can maximize it's damage

please just stop XD

To have back-up if hax fails, as said above. It's mainly a filler but...

Conkeldurr will still be a status absorber with burn, plus it powers up all his attacks, including drain punch (duh)

Overheat runs down Sp. Attack so that's not nice choiced, plus he doesn't like switching with SR up.

Why don't we both stop? You have given some crap advice as well. Such as giving a pokemon new EVs when it says "EVs cannot be changed". Plus your saying (now) that chandelure needs more power when your rate gives it a scarf.

try this set

Jirachi @ leftovers/life orb
Serene Grace
adamant
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 speed
-Body Slam
-Iron Head
-Wish
-fire punch

fire punch is really needed for jirachi it deals with ferro / skarm / forretress / and etc. wish for healing iron head is your stab body slam to paralyze. life orb to make her a sweeper BUT not recommended because you can be easily to beat. leftovers is obvious. and your going to love this set.

u dont need sub because u have very good bulk and u dont need protect as u can flinch the pokemon to recover. just dont stay in if u fear fire / ground attacks.

NOTE: jellicent is one pokemon that ruin this set that i faced in battle.
