    XY UU STALL

    Update: 15 out of 17 potential members have voted. XY UU Stall wins for our play style of choice.

    Final Votes:

    Offense: 4
    Stall: 8
    Balance: 3

    With our tier and play style of choice decided, it's time for the nominations! For the nomination process, every participant has to include 1 pokemon to center around and at least 2 pokemon that form a core for it. Make sure to give an explanation about your choices. Simply listing pokemon and saying things like "Let's use x-mon because it rekts things" won't be counted towards the nomination votes. After everyone provides 3 pokemon, we all will then vote on which core would best fit our overall objective. (which in this case it's stall) When we all are able to agree on a core, we will then focus on supporting pokemon that will help keep the core alive. For times sake, please also include the items, EVs, IVs, and move-sets for your selections.*

    Let's use Bulk Up Scrafty as our sweeper. We can run what is called "Hyper Stall" where the main goal is to have an extremely bulky team that relies on hazards. Scrafty has flaws that leave us open to using Pokemon such as Qwilfish as checks to Heracross or Honchkrow, as well as having hazards. Also its pretty cute.

    Qwilfish can be used as it sets up Spikes and beats most Fighting-types, and Rhyperior can be another mon, as it helps to phaze, while setting up SR. AV+ Solid Rock plz.

    Sub CM Jirachi, spikes roserade, and Stealth rock Hippo. Sub mind jirachi has always loved hazard support and rose/hippo cover each other's weakness' pretty well. Add something to take ice and dark moves with mon 4 and we have the makings of a pretty good semistall.

    Irra's 3 Nominations!


    [​IMG]

    The Focus

    Aerodactyl (F) @ Aerodactylite
    Trait: Tough Claws
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Earthquake
    - Aerial Ace
    - Hone Claws
    - Stone Edge

    Why this pokemon? Despite it being extremely frail with what it’s being versed up with in the current meta-game, Mega Aerodactyl is a threat one shouldn’t take too lightly. With a base speed of 150 (tier 1) while in its mega form, Aerodactyl out speeds a lot of fast pokemon (130 base+) Crobat notably comes to mind in UU. Being part rock, mega Aero takes minimum damage from fire type moves. It can resist Darmranitan’s Flare Blitz, out speed mega Houndoom and then can kill both of them with stone edge or earthquake if they’ve taken damage from hazards such as stealth rocks. With sand, toxic, and burn support chipping away at the opposing pokemon’s HP, it will become a lot easier for mega Aero to sweep mid- to late- game. Hone Claws increase Aerodactyl’s attack 1 stage and makes Stone Edge almost close to 100 percent accurate. Rapid spin and defog users are forced to either attack the pre-historic birdy or remove hazards while risking either being set up on or attacked. With the right support, mega Aerodactyl can come in mid- to late- game and finish off the opposing player's weakened pokemon.

    The Defensive Wall

    Hippowdon (F) @ Rocky Helmet
    Trait: Sand Stream
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Toxic
    - Earthquake
    - Slack Off
    - Whirlwind

    Why this pokemon? The physical bulk on this thing is CRAY CRAY! Something to note is that adamant mega Heracross, which is quite common in UU, can 2HKO the hungry hippo (yay ban) Choice Band Crawdaunt 1HKO's with Crabhammer o:. I chose rocky helmet and toxic over stealth rocks and leftovers to simply kill things faster. Sand stream+toxic+rocky helmet damage dwindles the opponent’s HP like there is no tomorrow. Hippowdown works well with Aerodactyl because it sponges up attacks from things such as: Toxicroak, Jirachi, Lucario, mega Absol to name a few; and either kill some of these threats with earthquake or phases them out to ruin their possible sweeps. Hippowdon is also immune to electric attacks, making it perfect to switch into attacks aimed at Suicune and Aero. Not only is the hippo immune to electric attacks and can stomach most fighting and steel type attacks, it also provides a 50 percent increase for Aero's special defense.

    The Defensive Sweeper

    Suicune @ Leftovers
    Trait: Pressure
    EVs: 252 HP / 200 Def / 56 SDef
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Calm Mind
    - Scald
    - Rest
    - Sleep Talk

    Why this pokemon? Good Ol’ Crocune. How many have raged over this monstrous set. With investments in HP and Defense, Suicune can come in on most steel type pokemon (thanks to its resistance) and set up on things such as Metagross and Registeel(both of which annoy Hippowdon and Aero). The Scald burn greatly reduces any physical damage Aerodactyl would take and would make physical damage output on hippo even more laughable. Pressure works wonders against opposing stall teams as it forces the opponent to run out of moves faster..which could be game changing (the STRUGGLEs are real).​
