[Season 2] Redemption League Rate-My-Team

174 posts in this topic

Well, I have had it.  I have had it with my current team, and after too many losses, I have vowed that it is time I make a new change.  This time instead of randomly adding Honchkrow to a team that doesn't center it, with the help of my peers, we have been able to make a new team that is Honchkrow-friendly.  Two, actually, but I like the second one better.

Alright, I'm feelin kind of good rn, so I'll help you out @Trevore

 

Let's start with the krow first. I'm pretty sure you absolutely want to keep it so I'll only suggest a few moves for that 4th slot. While Taunt is a pretty good move, I believe its use would be better suited on a faster mon or something like whimsicott (It should be apparent, but this comment is directed at team 1 as that's the one with taunt). Though, I can understand wanting to keep taunt on krow as prankster can't even touch it, unlike whimsi, and its speed is good enough for most of the mons you see in redemption, just don't expect it to come too much in handy when fighting someone like edgar or penelope, as using it on edgars bronzong might just get you gyro balled instead, and most of penelopes mons can outspeed krow and get up a DDance before being taunted.

 

As for the moves you could possibly put over it, tailwind and roost are what immediately come to mind. Tailwind can help you out against leaders who don't run TR doubles/triples (like nick or penelope) and can help honchkrow pick up some of its slack in singles. Roost on the other hand, gives Krow a longer lifespan if used at the right times, which could be great if you need it or you bring it on something it can force out/pressure. Superpower should also be noted as it allows honchkrow to better hurt mons like TTar/Cradily and Walrein.

 Onto Lopunny. Lopunny sets are pretty basic, not a whole lot you can do with them beside changing up that 4th move, so lemme just give you a little more options to consider. Power-up-punch Could be a worthwhile investment as it allows lopunny to boost its already pretty high attack, and this can help it pick up some kills, but it would mean losing the only recovery you have and a slot that could be used for coverage. However, PuP does help it take out skarmory and other physical walls, so its worth considering. Next would have to be ice punch as it allows lopunny to hit some of those tanky ground types like chomp and hippo and gliscor, all things the krow sort of has trouble with, that can also be annoying to your other mons. Last two moves are honourable mentions that i don't think would be too good, but quick attack and healing wish are always options. Quick attack can help lopunny pick something off if fake out didn't do the job. Cases where it may be used are against mega medicham if you absolutely need to outprioritize it, or mega pinsir. Healing Wish should be self-explanatory, lopunny has served its purpose and is about to go down, it may as well heal something, this would only really work in singles though, and seeing how many leaders use triples, you might not need it, but it's there if you want it.

 Whimsicott is... a tricky one to figure out to say the least. There are many moves and sets you could run on it, each being good in their own right. Tailwind in particular can be very good when going into battle with someone like penelope, as unlike her, you will get it off turn 1, no matter what. Taunt can be good as well as I mentioned in the honchkrow section. Finally, Memento can be great, it's an excellent stop to setup sweepers in singles and can even allow another mon of yours to set up. Just be careful if you use it against Olivia, as a +2 serp on a prediicted memento can really hurt. Speaking of Serp, I do honestly think you could maybe replace whimsicott with serp. It's bulkier, will eventually hit harder, also gets knock off, is pretty fast and can pick up late game sweeps. Serp gets taunt as well, but a lack of prankster could very well hurt it, but I think that's just a small price to pay tbh. If I suggest any other mon changes like this again, I'll put the recommended set in a spoiler at the end of this.

Next is the Chandelure. You've got all the main bases covered with heat wave, shadow ball and energy ball, but i do understand the 4th move can be pretty tricky to figure out. Haze is not a bad option at all, but I do believe there are better ones, such as clear smog! Although clear smog may not hit steel types, A well placed heat wave can send them packing anyway. Clear smog can eliminate the stat changes while also doing a small amount of damage, which could be nice as it may allow you to pick up a kill when you wouldn't have been able to, or break sash. Fire Blast could also be an option here as heat wave can get blocked by wide guard. Other notable moves include Trick Room, Will-o-Wisp and Trick, each serving their own purpose (one can help you out if op has webs up or has a bunch of fast/scarf mons, one burns potential set up sweepers and one can render a mon useless if it is a set up sweeper like clef) but i don't know if they'd be as useful to you.

Nidoking. This thing is a threat, no matter what set it runs and its only problem is how slow it is. That said, it could greatly appreciate a tailwind or a Trick room if the op is running a lot of mons with base speeds over 85-95. I'll go over the 4th moveslot options and probably suggest you pick one as taunt might not be the best on nidoking. Flamethrower is an option as it hits skarmory and ferrothorn for a little more damage and can also hit ice types pretty hard. Thunderbolt allows you to deal more damage to bulky water types who don't die to EP or Sludge wave and also hits flying types like zard and the aforementioned Skarmory. Finally, my preferred move is Sucker Punch, as with a LO boost, it can deal a lot of damage and really hit some psychic types who think they can revenge kill you hard, not to mention it helps nidoking pick off weakened mons that are faster than it.

Finally, the Rotom-W. This is where I might offer the second mon change, but lets just go over rotom-w first. I personally think you could be running will-o-wisp or pain split over discharge, as discharge hits a lot of your own pokemon and has the chance to paralyze them, meanwhile will-o and split can help out a lot more in single battle situations. Toxic can also be replaced for one of those two for the same reason as it doesn't provide a whole lot in the grand scheme of things, unless of course the opponent is running a stall team. So, I said I would suggest a mon change, and indeed i have. Water already has so many options so there could be one better suited, but I picked two in particular that could be nice. Araquanid is a fearsome beast. Water bubble prevents it from being burned, it gets toxic and wide guard, and banded liquidation can hit really fucking hard thanks to water bubble. It's also got some nice bulk so it can come in well on certain mons and come out fine. The only problem here is that it gets hurt by hazards pretty easily, and its best form of recovery is leech life. However, inside of a tailwind, or Trick Room, Araquanid can easily pick up kills while dodging burns at the same time, making it a pretty valuable member against all the TR teams. The second water type i'd suggest is Starmie. Starmie is fast, can hit hard on switches, has a great movepool, and learns rapid spin. The only problem it has that the other two don't is that it isn't super bulky, but it can more than make up for that in speed and power.

Suggested mons for swap below. I might get to team 2 later.

I'm actually considering replacing Rotom with Araquanid if I did use the first team.  Whimsicott, hard to say, but you make good points.  Anything for the second team?

Well, I've been throwing this idea of restarting with an Ice Mono for a while now. Depending on how well (or, rather, badly) I perform this week, I might just go through with it. That said, I'm debating as to what the team might look like.

 

This is kind of my first draft of the team.

 

Spoiler

Ninetales-Alola @ Light Clay  
Ability: Snow Warning  
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Timid Nature  
IVs: 0 Atk  
- Blizzard  
- Moonblast  
- Aurora Veil  
- Freeze-Dry  

Glaceon @ Icicle Plate  
Ability: Snow Cloak  
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD  
Modest Nature  
IVs: 0 Atk  
- Blizzard  
- Aurora Veil  
- Shadow Ball  
- Ice Beam  

Weavile @ Life Orb  
Ability: Pressure  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Jolly Nature  
- Fake Out  
- Knock Off  
- Icicle Crash  
- Brick Break  

Mamoswine @ Life Orb  
Ability: Thick Fat  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Jolly Nature  
- Earthquake  
- Icicle Crash  
- Ice Shard  
- Knock Off  

Lapras @ Leftovers  
Ability: Shell Armor  
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD  
Calm Nature  
IVs: 0 Atk  
- Freeze-Dry  
- Surf  
- Protect  
- Toxic  

Sandslash-Alola @ Life Orb  
Ability: Slush Rush  
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD  
Adamant Nature  
- Iron Head  
- Icicle Crash  
- Brick Break  
- Earthquake 

 

Of course, this is only a rough draft, so anything might change. The only non-negotiable is Glaceon's place on the team. I don't care if it might be considered the "Weak link", her place on the team is non-negotiable.

 

Aside from that, what could/should I change?

@Anstane Here's my review:

 

Spoiler

At A Glance: A hail team that is particularly weak to Fighting-types and Steel-types.

 

In detail:

Ninetales-Alola: Your choice of moves render it helpless against Steel and Fire-types, but it can't be helped anyways, given its shallow offensive movepool. Other than that, it does its job of setting up Aurora Veil well.

 

Glaceon: Having Aurora Veil on Glaceon is quite redundant, as the opportunity for it to use the move is usually taken by Alolan Ninetales already. Instead of using Aurora Veil, how about trying Reflect instead? With Reflect and Aurora Veil stacked together, your team will be able to take physical hits better. Having both Blizzard and Ice Beam is a bit of a questionable choice, but it's passable.

 

Weavile: Brick Break is an excellent choice for taking out Tyranitar. Though, having Ice Shard over Fake Out would help against Mach Punchers such as Breloom.

 

Mamoswine: I would use Stealth Rock over Knock Off, as your Alolan Sandslash would certainly appreciate the chip damage that could allow it to sweep more easily. It'd also help immensely against the Fire leader.

 

Lapras: Perhaps the most passive Pokemon on your team. It can't even stall properly due to the lack of reliable healing methods, and vulnerability to Toxic. Its attacks are also weak on its own, with anything that has decent bulk capable of shrugging it off with ease. The only thing it's somewhat good at is fighting the Water leader due to Water Absorb. But yet, Water monos possess the dreaded Rotom-Wash that can easily beat it, and many other wallbreakers.

I recommend using Walrein instead. While it has a bit less bulk, it gets Thick Fat, making it the only thing you get that can *technically* resist a Fire-type attack. It also possesses Super Fang, allowing it to make up for its lesser offenses. It can also opt to use Earthquake or Rock Slide to nail down annoying Steel-types and Fire-types.

 

Sandslash-Alola: Nothing to change here.

Sandslash-Alola: Nothing to change here.

 

 

Spoiler

A-Ninetales: I could conceivably replace either either Blizzard or Freeze-Dry with HP Ground or a second screen like Light Screen.

Glaceon: The Aurora Veil is there as backup in case A-Ninetales is unable to set it up for whatever reason. (Such as Fake Out.) I will concede that Blizzard and Ice Beam are redundant, though. I'm thinking, again, HP Ground, or maybe HP Fire for Erwin and Festus due to Scizor and Durant, as well as Ferrothorn that Olivia would no doubt use.

 

Weavile: I mainly went with Fake Out over Ice Shard because of Trick Room and other important interrupts. Generally, though, yeah, Ice Shard is a superior move.

 

Mamoswine: The problem with SR is that I'm legitimately having trouble justifying using it on my current team, as I rarely get a good chance to actually use it.

 

Lapras: Yeah, this is kind of the main mon that's kind of out of there. My justification originally was "I need a Water/Ice type to counter Fire-types". I originally thought about Walrein with Super Fang, but later changed it to Lapras. After some discussion, I have two routes I can take: I can either go with Walrein for Fire and Steel-types, or I am considering going with Abomasnow. It would give me a Mega, a good mon against Trick Room, a second Hail setter and otherwise good coverage. The main problem is that this would make the team even more vulnerable to fire, leaving just Mamoswine as a potential Fire counter.

Steelix-  

- Earthquake
- Heavy Slam  
- Stealth Rock  
- Roar  

Scizor                    or   Heracross ( i don't put Pin Missile / Rock Blast on it because i might not always run its mega evo)
- Bullet Punch            - Close Combat

- Swords Dance        - Knock Off 
- U-turn                     - Swords Dance

Gourgeist-Super  or   Exeggutor - Alola  (2 dragon types though :()

- Seed Bomb             - Wood Hammer
- Will -o - wisp           - Dragon Hammer
- Synthesis                - Draco Meteor
- Trick Room             - Trick Room

 

Ninetales - Alola

- Moonblast

- Freeze Dry

- Aurora Veil

- Blizzard

 

Blastoise      or        Tentacruel

- Scald                    - Scald
- Dark Pulse           - Knock  Off/toxic
- Aura Sphere        - Rapid Spin
- Rapid Spin           - Protect

 

This is an idea i have for a team. 

Goals:

1) Use pokemon that i like

2) Have pokemon that can be versatile, not rely heavily on a specific item/setup,  and can run various items / EV spreads  depending on the leader,  which will turn counter-teaming against me into a guessing game for them.

3) Try to not be terribly weak to a single type (fire will be a problem if blastoise dies)

4) Try to rely on various methods to play around my opponent (hazards, status effects,  raw power, trick room, changing the weather)

 

Hoping for some helpful feedback

Might restart with this HEAT

 

 

Tsareena

- Trop Kick

- High Jump Kick

- U Turn

- Rapid Spin

 

Hitmontop

- Close Combat

- Fake Out

- Sucker Punch

- Wide Guard

 

Incineroar

- Flare Blitz

- Darkest Lariat

- U Turn

- Fake Out

 

Krookodile

- Earthquake

- Knock Off

- Rock Slide

- Stealth Rock

 

Gyarados

- Waterfall

- Crunch

- Dragon Dance

- Taunt

 

Manectric

- Volt Switch

- Discharge

- Overheat

- HP Ice

 

Read between the lines and you'll see 5 Intimidate + Tsareena. Don't ask how, but this team just works. It shuts down every physical attacker ever (minus Clear Body Metagross and Defiant Bisharp ((who I have several ways to fight if need be))) This is annoying as all hell to face with constant Attack drops from Intimidate and Trop Kick, along with 3 Volt Turns. Special Attackers aren't too much of an issue with Wide Guard + pretty much all of my mons can run AV safely. Only ways to combat Trick Room are Fake Out and Taunt, or just run slow (Iron Ball Manectric) and ride the Room. My team's really durable, so it can also stall out weather and TR if need be. I only have one special attacker which kinda sucks though...

 

What holes do you see in the team? Thoughts?

Our lord and savior Gregory can shrek that if it gets a sub and 1-2 DDs (if it has Moxie). Also, rocks are bad for you, and therefore you'll have to switch in Tsareena (that mind you, has no recovery there) a lOT. Also also, your team has almost exclusively physical attackers, so a good physical wall can get through it with relative ease. Also also also, Pory2 walls everything bar Hitmontop IF it has lost its Eviolite. Also also also also, you could use some more team support (isn't it ironic that I, Hycrox, am talking about the need for team support), such as screens and/or weather (maybe something like TTar) for special walls . It's pretty lit tho.

Trick Room and Weather I'm not too worried about, since I can reliably drag them out with constant switches (Intimidate) plus AVs Fake Out x2 and Wide Guard for extra security. Screens are okay with all of this damage reduction going on, but there's really no room to add them. Pory2 is annoying if I can't Knock Off (Krook) it before letting Tsa or Top beat it down. If its not carrying Tbolt, Gyarados can set up in its face and sweep, but knowing Elliot... hm. You think there's anywhere I could fit Toxic maybe?

You could run it on Top over Sucker Punch or Fake out.

Alternatively, you could run it on Tsareena over Rapid Spin (or just run Synthesis instead) and give Spin to Top

You don't need Rocks on both Marowak and Empoleon. Rock Slide is probably better than Stone Edge on Golem because it hits both enemies in Doubles/Triples. You also have nothing immune or even resisting Earthquake or Ground in general. Your own Earthquake will hurt you a lot if you're not careful. Dazzling Gleam and Moonblast on Gardevoir isn't necessary, maybe drop Gleam for Hyper Voice in case you wanted to use Mega Gardevoir for some battles? No Trick Room, Taunt, Fake Out, or Tailwind, so most Triples-based leaders will not be kind to you with their speed control. Nothing with setup means bulky Singles-based leaders like Ground, Water, and Normal can wall you pretty easily since you have almost no way to get around their various wall cores (Gliscor + Gastrodon, Quagsire + Mantine) Just some ideas.

Team looks good overall but I would personally made some changes for redemption.
1st Serp needs 3 attacking moves since its limited coverage is mandantory to take on all 17 types. So I would replace either Leech Seed or Taunt for Dragon Pulse (I prefer Taunt to stop TR and set up in general)

Since you already have Fake Out priority on Medi and you have Scizor for Bullet Punch, you could run either a secndary stab or Ice Punch.
Garchomp can be your Stealth Rock user over Fire Blast and you can even test Rock Slide over Stone Edge.
Have in mind that items and evs can constantly be changed :]

Yeah, I may run Ice Punch on Medicham and replace Leech Seed for Dragon Pulse and Rock Slide for triples/doubles on Garchomp.
But I think I'll keep Fire Blast on Garchomp for coverage. Having HP Fire as my only Fire move would be troublesome.

... And I have HP Fire as my only Fire move for my team although it is Technician boosted :P

I tried making a more balanced one, this one lacks recovery and attacking power, but I'll use it as base and start building a better team from there.

And I hope I can add Serperior in this team later.
