Recently a friend of mine had challenged me to make a Pokemon team that is based off a song. I had no idea what to do until last night, when I was listening to this song by Iron Maiden; it happens to be one of my favorite songs:
As I sat there last night listening to this song, Two pokemon for an offensive core came to mind when I heard this song: A core of the Rare and unexpected Physical Zoroark and Sub/Disable Gengar. These two work well together, because although they are kind of frail, they both Resist fairly well what each of them is weak to (Gengar is weak to Ghost, Psychic, and Dark, which Zoroark resists. Likewise, Zoroark is weak to fighting and Bug, which Gengar is barely scratched by.) The Idea of messing with someones mind came to play, so I would use Screens, possibly Trick Room, and Zoroarks Ability as well as Gengar Sub/Disable Shenanigans fit well with this idea. In addition, Trick came to mind.
That being said, I know exactly what set for Gengar I would like to run:
EV's: 252 Sp. Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
It is a very standard set, I have also thought about running a Choice Specs set with Trick. I, However have no idea what I want to do with Zoroark. I know a Special Set is way more Viable...but then who would be a good physical attacker that fits the theme of terror, nightmares, and tricks?
An alternative I thought was a Trick Room Team with Gengar as a fast back up Pokemon, and running a Trick Room Absol. Absol in TR in OU would Tear teams apart. But would that be Viable? In addition what other ways do you think this team would work well / is any of this even a good idea? What do you all think of a team based off this?
