    We'll find that these dual special attackers can really just plow through more defensive teams with their attacks. Their speeds aren't so bad either; especially Sceptiles in both the power and speed department who loves to clean up late game as well as wallbreak early. This offensive core do compliment each other as they tend to wear down each others checks or in the case of Maggy; blow them away all together to Sceptiles glee. Or the other way around to; so that Mismagius' flexibility can win the day in the end! Though, the frailty of this core is very apparent. They cant take very powerful hits so if they're not threatening somethin out with an OHKO or are against somethin that is simply faster; they can be taken down unfortunately easily. Things like this are Sneasel and Scarf Drapion as these mons outspeeds both of ours and can easily trap them, Emboar is another threat as it IS very bulky and hard to wear down at the beginning. Not so speedy, but easily able to tank and then OHKO both mons. The team's still young so as always; there's still many things to cover, but a tiny offensive core that batter each others checks is here now!

    Now we'll still need things like rocks or perhaps pivots to get in these frail mons? Perhaps a pure defensive mon is on your mind? Whatever the case; suggest it and suggest it well! Take a look at the viability if you want as well; also, Barbaracle is being suspected. We'll not be suggesting it, ok? Im thinking its gonna go, everythings pointing towards it, but we can't be too sure. It might be safe just to have some general measures for it to, so keep it in mind. I'll let yall know when it ends.

    Rhydon @ Eviolite
    Ability: Lightning Rod
    EVs: 252 HP / 16 Atk / 240 SpD
    Adamant Nature
    - Stealth Rock
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Blast
    - Megahorn

    Rhydon is arguably the best rocker in the tier. It threatens out so many of the common hazard control and gets up rocks very easily on the things it comes in on due to its immense bulk. Even Xatu has to be wary of its Rock Blast when coming in and trying to prevent rocks. Rock Blast over any other rock coverage as it can take down Froslass with 3 hits through the sash. Choosing Rhydon as it meshes well with out current mons. Rhydon lures out bulky waters such as Vaporeon, Seismitoad, and Slowbro. All of which our current mons would love to take advantage of. Megahorn is almost purely so Malamar can get threatened out and can be used against a predicted grass type as well. Rhydons typing does compliment our current mons as the water and grass type attacks aimed at could provide a hard switch opprotune for Sceptile. Sceptile can then react with the appropriate coverage. Even some of Rhydons weaknesses can be used to get in Mismagius as well due to her typing and ability.

    Alright might as well post a poke for this nu team




    Incineroar @ Assault Vest
    Ability: Blaze
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpA
    Brave Nature
    - Darkest Lariat
    - Fire Blast
    - U-turn
    - Fake Out



    Incineroar the pokemon that looks like it should be op but it isnt. It shines well in nu and for this team for its slow u turn and checks for sensals and freinds. AV lets it tank a little with max hp and max att lets us hit any poke that doesnt like lariat or u turn.

    Sorry for the wait! Normally, im a lil strict on the deadlines, nick. Though this time i'll let it slide so we can hit at least three entrants and expand our options. I wont let it slide next time though, so please be wary of those deadlines. Anywho, it's time to vote! Audino covers the role of cleric or bulky set up attacker. Its phenomenal bulk means it can come in on many unboosted hits and proceed to use these weak hits to set up, heal our team, or even just to take a hit nobody else should take. Which could be especially helpful in giving our attackers a second chance if they've been statused or weakened. Then we have Rhydon; a bulky, powerful, mixed defense Pokemon that makes its mark with the rocks it can so easily set and its respectful coverage. It also does synergize very well with our current mons; appreciating what they take down and can in turn, tanking the hits they dont want to, in return, it can dish out some damage of its own. Lastly; there's Incineroar. An AV set means mons like Sigilyph, Xatu, opposing Sceptiles and Mismagius, and quite a bit of special attackers find themselves checked when Incineroar comes in. Having to switch out; a U-Turn could be used to gain momentum. Though, hazard control would be mandatory as his checking capabilities are severely hindered when rocks are out.

    Ok, there's the three mons!

    Rhydon is here for our rocking pleasures, putting things into 2HKO and OHKO range for our sweepers. Aside from just meshing well and enjoying the fact that our other 2 Pokemon can take out the things that ail it such as bulky waters and bulky grasses, Rhydon also rids Poison types for Sceptile.

    Right now our team is still plagued by common weaknesses that a lot of RU teams share. Such as Ice weakness, or rather, Vanilluxe weakness and a dark weakness. These things are normally remedied by fast checks and little opportunity for those types of mons to get in, but still, it's good to keep them in mind. We've still three slots to suggest with though so get suggestin!

    Ability: Regenerator
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
    Bold Nature
    - Calm Mind
    - Scald
    - Psyshock
    - Slack Off

    Alrighty here. Slowbro this fine Poke? It can survive a hit from a Banded Emboar's Wild Charge AND tanks it's Superpower and Flare Blitz excellently. Not only that, non-Freeze Dry Vanilluxe really have a problem dealing with it. Max defense ensures we can survive hits from mons like Emboar, Hitmonlee, and Steelix. Calm Mind lets us boost on a switch-in which can easily give us an edge in a fight against Mons like Virizion. Scald and Psyshock are standard STAB moves, and Scald can let us try and get burns on switch-ins to mons like Sneasel which would definitely spell trouble for Slowbro. Slack Off lets us stay in with our Calm Mind boosts to keep us alive and well to keep boosting and taking out mons that would cause us trouble. It also pairs very well with Rhydon and Sceptile as it tanks the Water and Fire moves that would otherwise demolish them.
