    Originally I wasn't going to post this team, but after seeing a lack of atleast decent teams since GS' UU team, I decided too. This is a semi-competitive team BTW.


    Parabola by Tool from Lateralus
    Indestructible by Disturbed from Indestructible
    Goin' Down by Three Days Grace from Life Starts Now
    Drones by Rise Against from The Sufferer and the Witness
    Ride the Lightning by Metallica from Ride the Lightning
    Misery Business by Paramore from Riot!

    Teh Overview


    Parabola@Muscle Band
    Impish Nature (-SpA, +Def)
    Shell Armor
    EVs: 252 HP/140 Def/116 Atk
    Stealth Rock
    Stone Edge
    Swords Dance

    EVs: This spread allows him to retain a decent amount of bulk, while still having some offensive capabilities... thus explaining the use of Muscle Band.

    Moveset: Stealth Rock is painfully obvious. Stone Edge is for STAB and hits NU fliers that are immune/resist EQ and X-S. Earthquake is for amazing coverage alongside SE, and SD to boost attack.

    Song Name: Parabola derives from the word "parable", parable is an extremely old word, and seeing as Armaldo is an ancient Pokémon... why not?

    Adamant Nature (-SpA, +Atk)
    Water Absorb
    EVs: 252 Atk/116 HP/140 Spe
    Dragon Dance
    Ice Shard

    EVs: Maximum attack is preferable obviously. The HP EVs give me some extra bulk to help me set up DD and sweep, alongside her natural bulkiness.

    Moveset: Dragon Dance, is a duh. Ice Shard let's me revenge kill, and allows me to pick off faster foes if I don't have a DD or 2 up. Waterfall is for my main STAB and if I'm lucky I'll get a flinch after setting up DD. Return is for hitting hard against bulky waters (Slowking and the like).

    Song Name: Pretty obvious. This thing is extremely hard to get rid of if I get the chance to set up.

    Goin' Down@Choice Band
    Jolly Nature (-SpA, +Spe)
    Vital Spirit
    EVs: 252 Atk/252 Spe/4 HP
    Close Combat
    Stone Edge

    EVs: I wish I could say everyone here can understand this spread, but unfortunately I cannot...

    Moveset: Close Combat for STAB, Stone Edge to hit fliers, U-turn for scouting, and Punishment for those idiots that try to set up on me.

    Song Name: You're Goin' Down :D

    Calm Nature (-Atk, +SpD)
    EVs: 252 HP/216 SpD/40 SpA
    Ice Beam

    EVs: Bulk, is all I have to say.

    Moveset: Thunderbolt and Ice Beam get amazing coverage, only walled by Lanturn and Shedinja if I'm correct. Recover for keeping myself in there too wall, and Thunderwave for crippling.

    Song Name: Drones are defined as being copies, in which robots can be copies... self explanatory.

    Ride the Lightning@Choice Specs
    Timid Nature (-Atk, +Spe)
    EVs: 252 SpA/252 Spe/4 HP
    HP Water
    Signal Beam

    EVs: Yeah....

    Moveset: Thunderbolt for STAB, Overheat for hitting Grass types and bulky Steels. HP Water for hitting Ground types, and Camerupt, and Signal Beam is for coverage.

    Song Name: Wonder who can figure this one out?

    Misery Business@Lum Berry
    Adamant Nature (-SpA, +Atk)
    Sand Veil
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
    Rapid Spin
    Stone Edge
    Swords Dance

    EVs: Bulk, and offensive capabilities... 'nuff said.

    Moveset: A spinner isn't a spinner without Rapid Spin, Earthquake for STAB, and Stone Edge for good coverage along with EQ and to not be walled by Cacturne and Shiftry (Night Slash is dumb), and Swords Dance for boosting his attack.

    Song Name: Let's just say, it's gonna cause alot of misery.

    Problems: None ATM.

    P.S.: If you don't know what you're talking about, don't rate.

    Very nice team dude. It's good to see it
    all at once, not just Lapras pwning me, lol.
    The only nit-pick I can make is maybe going
    with Toxic>TWave on Porygon2. You may have
    some trouble dealing with special walls, although
    DD Lapras can draw them out and proceed to
    destroy them, Toxic will help with this problem.

    You know the drill. It's a very nice team, and I'm glad somebody has posted something decent for me to rate.

    Alright, I see where you are coming from. I'll change that right now, thanks bro

    EDIT: The EV thing was a typo, lol. I'll try Curse, but I've always found that DD works better... Anyways thanks for the rates.

    I hear that, there hasn't been anything
    decent enough for a good rate in a while.

    Consider Screech over X-Scissor on Armaldo to force switches, or Rapid Spin, IIRC QuakeEdge gets unresisted coverage in NU.

    You seem to lack anything specially defensive, so I recommend reversing the Def and SpD on Porygon2, i.e. 252 HP / 40 SpA / 216 SpD Calm.

    More of a rate later.

    ^Ahhh yes, that makes sense. I'll do that, although this is Semi-competitive so I think I'll go with SD

    Good point, I almost forgot this was the IGTR xD

    Bumping. Anyone else?

    Dan The Poke Man MEGAMEGAMEGA

    Sandslash@Choice Item
    Mild/Modest/Quiet/Rash/Any neutrel nature
    Earth Power
    Mud Shot
    Focus Blast
    HP (Electric)

    Not that good with Slash, but HP covers weaknesses and flying types and nature will help all moves.

    Not the best I've done :/

    1. He's supposed to be a Spinner

    2. His Special Attack sucks, 100 Atk BP apposed to 45 SpA BP

    3. He gets Swords Dance

    Your team is Medicham weak. Nothing resist its Stab fighting and psychic attacks. The only counter is Sanslash ,so you want to keep that in mind.
  13. Ampy

    Ampy Light The Stars

    ^You're right.

    Although I can easily revenge him with Manectric or Primape (non-scarfed versions atleast, and they lack the power to do tons of damage to Armaldo).
  14. clone1

    clone1 Aesthetics brahz

    Mhmm, that too. Overall though your team covers the top 20 NU threats.
  15. Ampy

    Ampy Light The Stars

    I don't even know all them, but the team's been doing amazingly so far.

    20 most popular Pokemon used in NU were:
    This may help ^^
  17. Ampy

    Ampy Light The Stars

    Gardevoir, Magneton,and Drifblim are UU now... but still I got all the others covered.

    I just copied and pasted the list from smogon. :p Anyway looks like I did enough for the rate. I'mma stop posting now.

    I've found Smogon isn't always up to date with their updates, but either way thanks for the rate.
