Rain Team RMT

Ghosts of the Forums

Who Ya Gonna Call?
Since rain teams seem to be used a lot, I though
I'd try one. But first, here are some possible leads/replacements:

;368;Gorebyss @Focus Sash/White Herb
Timid @Swift Swim
252Sp.Atk/Hp, 252Spe, 4Hp/Sp.Atk
Surf
Ice Beam/Filler
Baton Pass
Shell Smash
Gorebyss's main use is to Baton Pass Shell Smash onto Dragonite
or Ludicolo.
;454;Toxicroak@Focus Sash/Black Sludge
Jolly @Dry Skin
252Atk, 252Spe, 4Hp
Drain punch
Sucker Punch
Substitute
Swords Dance
;380;Latias @Leftovers
Bold @Levitate
252Def, 252HP, 4Sp.Atk/Sp.Def
Dragon Pulse
Psyshock
Calm Mind
Recover
;385;Jirachi @Leftovers
Bold
252Hp, 252HP, 4Sp.Def
Doom Desire
Calm Mind
Wish
Thunder Wave/Focus Blast/Filler

;385;Jirachi @King's Rock/Lum Berry
Jolly
252Atk/Hp, 252Spe, 4Hp/Atk
Iron Head
ThunderPunch
Zen Headbutt
Fire Punch

;186;Politoed @Leftovers
Bold
Drizzle
252Def, 252Sp.Def, 4Hp
Scald
Encore
Perish Song
Protect
Defensive Perish Song Toad, Scald burns and Encoree traps enemies into
one attack. Perish Song wrecks Baton Pass teams and forces stat boosted
sweepers to switch or die. Protect buys me a turn.


:598:Ferrothorn @Leftovers
Careful
Iron Barbs
252Hp, 252Sp.Def, 4Def
Power Whip
Protect
Leech Seed
Curse
Ferrothorn with Curse, set up with leech seed for healing then Curse up and kill with Power Whip. Protect lets me steal more hp with Leech Seed and
avoid fire moves.

;131;Laplace @Leftovers
Hydration
Careful
252Hp, 252Sp.Def, 4Atk
Waterfall
Ice Shard
Curse
Rest
Ah, Lapras with Hydration, incredibly hax in rain. Once I get going with Curse, nothing can stop me! Waterfall is a guaranteed KO, and Ice Shard isn't too far behind. Rest heals me.

;272;Ludicolo @Life Orb
Swift Swim
Timid
252Sp.Atk, 252Spe, 4Hp
Hydro Pump
Giga Drain
Ice Beam
Focus Blast/Filler
Ludicolo, the rain sweeper, and one-third of my offensive core
(Laplace and Dragonite complete the core.) The moves are pretty much just for coverage with the most power aquirable. I really don't know if I should
keep Focus Blast, because I really only use it on T-tar and Ferrothorn.

;149;Dragonite @Leftovers/ Life Orb?
Timid
252Sp.Atk, 252Spe, 4Hp
Hurricane
Thunder
Surf/Ice Beam
Roost
This set is really a lifesaver in rain. With perfect accuracy Hurricane and Thunder,
plus dragon-killing power in Ice Beam, this makes Dragonite a great revenge killer or Baton Passee for Gorbyss.

Time for some actual feedback

Since rain teams seem to be used a lot, I though
I'd try one.
I'd also definetly include gorebyss in this team

;186;Politoed @Leftovers
Bold
Drizzle
252Def, 252Sp.Def, 4Hp
Scald
Encore
Toxic
Protect

sweepers to switch or die. Protect buys me a turn.
Perish Song is meh. Most opponents will simply switch out of it. Toxic is a much better option imo.

:598:Ferrothorn @Leftovers
Careful
Iron Barbs
252Hp, 252Sp.Def, 4Def
Gyro Ball
Protect
Leech Seed
Curse
Ferrothorn with Curse, set up with leech seed for healing then Curse up and kill with Power Whip. Protect lets me steal more hp with Leech Seed and
avoid fire moves.
Gyro ball has higher accuracy and, becuase you'll be very slow after using curse a few times, it'll do just as much, if not more, damage

;131;Laplace @Leftovers
Hydration
Careful
252Hp, 252Sp.Def, 4Atk
Waterfall
Ice Shard
Curse
Rest
Ah, Lapras with Hydration, incredibly hax in rain. Once I get going with Curse, nothing can stop me! Waterfall is a guaranteed KO, and Ice Shard isn't too far behind. Rest heals me.
Fine

;272;Ludicolo @Life Orb
Swift Swim
Timid
252Sp.Atk, 252Spe, 4Hp
Hydro Pump/Surf
Giga Drain
Ice Beam
Focus Blast/Filler/HP something
Ludicolo, the rain sweeper, and one-third of my offensive core
(Laplace and Dragonite complete the core.) The moves are pretty much just for coverage with the most power aquirable. I really don't know if I should
keep Focus Blast, because I really only use it on T-tar and Ferrothorn.
Good, but i'd consider surf for increased accuracy and also some sort of hidden power


;149;Dragonite @Leftovers/ Life Orb?
Timid
252Sp.Atk, 252Spe, 4Hp
Hurricane
Thunder
Surf/Ice beam
Roost
This set is really a lifesaver in rain. With perfect accuracy Hurricane and Thunder,
plus dragon-killing power in Ice Beam, this makes Dragonite a great revenge killer or Baton Passee for Gorbyss.
Good. I'd run a life orb though
Changes in bold, although there aren't many, very good team. Nice work!

Swift Swim + Drizzle is indeed banned, you have to get more creative with this. Also, 5-man team? This is Rate My Team, not Rate A Couple Of Pokemon I Think Would Have Positive Synergy.

@Psycho Cut, thank you.

I play where drizzleswim isn't banned, and the last member of team is randomly selected out of the spoiler.

Thanks for the advice and opinions. Anything else?
