Team Help

Post by SteakMonster on Wed Dec 30, 2015 8:19 am

After much delay, I am back with a team that is based around Mega Metagross.  Team building does not come to me easily so a bit of feedback would be appreciated.  

Metagross-Mega @ Metagrossite  
Ability: Clear Body  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Adamant Nature  
- Rock Polish  
- Meteor Mash  
- Zen Headbutt  
- Earthquake  

Talonflame @ Sharp Beak  
Ability: Gale Wings  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Jolly Nature  
- Brave Bird  
- Flare Blitz  
- Swords Dance  
- Roost  

Goodra @ Assault Vest  
Ability: Sap Sipper  
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD  
Modest Nature  
- Dragon Pulse  
- Fire Blast  
- Sludge Bomb  
- Muddy Water  

Hydreigon @ Sitrus Berry  
Ability: Levitate  
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Timid Nature  
- Taunt  
- Roost  
- Dark Pulse  
- Dragon Pulse  

Scizor @ Life Orb  
Ability: Technician  
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD  
Adamant Nature  
- Swords Dance  
- Bullet Punch  
- Superpower  
- Bug Bite  

Vaporeon @ Leftovers  
Ability: Water Absorb  
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD  
Bold Nature  
- Wish  
- Scald  
- Protect  
- Heal Bell  

Like I said, this is just a team that I built around Mega Metagross and I want to see if I could use it in some of my gym battles.  Once again, feedback is much appreciated.

EDIT: I have replaced Hydreigon and Scizor for these sets:

Excadrill @ Life Orb  
Ability: Sand Rush  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Adamant Nature  
- Rapid Spin  
- Earthquake  
- Iron Head  
- Rock Slide  

Hippowdon @ Leftovers  
Ability: Sand Stream  
EVs: 252 HP / 144 Def / 112 SpD  
Impish Nature  
- Stone Edge  
- Stealth Rock  
- Slack Off  
- Earthquake

I have also substituted Ice Punch for Earthquake as I have two ground types now.  Take these edits into mind as you make suggestions.

Hello, nice team. First glance seems pretty solid although the really huge weakness to rain which is one of the dominant styles in the current meta.

I liked the fact that you balanced out Mega Metagross' weaknesses with the following 'mons although they're kinda sub-par to the more superior teammates in OU but I'm not too keen on the cookie cutter sets.

Not there's anything wrong but I highly suggest you make the change of SD Scizor to the banded variant with Pursuit as this takes care of the L@ti's that may pressure your team.

Then there's the other major weakness to physical attackers like Char X, M-Swampert and Landorus. Although you've indicated that you're using a defensive Vaporeon, I have made calcs and it doesn't seem able to do much after set up. I would suggest you make the change to Starmie if you're keen on still using a water type as it adds to the offensive presence of the team and can even clear rocks.

But this is only after a quick look-through though. Hope you find the suggestions helpful.

ch1mez said most of the things, buut maybe if its possible change sharp beaks on Talonflame to Life orb, and look how that works. But if its not possible, sharp beaks is probally a good choice to (since it like never uses any fire moves but ehh XD).

The rest except for one thing is all pretty much said. The moveset for Hydreigon is bulky but the ev's are not. I don't know how naturally bulky it is, so I'm not sure I'd it can take some strong neutral his or not. So either give it hp and def/sp. def ev's (Sp. def is best in my opinion) or change the item and moveset.
