The Supreme Sand



Hello members of the FTG and welcome to another fabulous tour of the champs rising teams. This team started out as me wanting to test Special Landorus and slowly turned into a powerful Sandstorm Team that uses a combination of deadly hazards and sandstorm to wear the opponent down to wear my pokemon can easily sweep them. Even though this team turned out good its still in the making so I may edit this RMT every now and then. So now its time to feast your eyes on The Supreme Sand!

Team Building Process

Spoiler:
 


Yellow Flash (Hippowdon) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 224 Def / 32 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
- Slack Off
- Roar
- Earthquake
The standard sandstorm lead of the team who's main purpose is to setup sandstorm and get up Stealth Rocks. After that it acts as a great physical wall taking hits from pokes like Terrakion with ease. this reason and this reason alone is why its on the team. Slack Off heals HP to increase longevity in battle while Roar is here for phazing purposes. Earthquake is the obvious STAB move. The EVs allow for maximum bulk while at the same time having to be 2HKOed by a Politoeds Scald or Surf in Sandstorm.


Piccollo (Gastrodon-East) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 32 Def / 224 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Recover
- Toxic
- Scald
- Earth Power
The poke who can take anything from Politoed bar Toxic and almost any special hit at that. being the primar special wall of the team it is made to be the bane of all rain teams with things like Specs Keldeo,Specs or Scarfed Politoed,Thundurus and more.Not even Genesect can OHKO unless a U-turn crit. Recover is a pretty obvious move to restore health. Toxic helps wear down Politoed and other things like Jellicent. Scald is for burn mainly while Earth Power is a good and usable STAB. The EVs on this set make it a great special wall and almost impossible to OHKO via a special attack.


Sakura-Chan (Celebi) @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 220 HP / 252 SAtk / 36 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Recover
- Thunder Wave
- Giga Drain
- Hidden Power [Fire]
The second poke to come and deal with Politoed and also certain Sandstorm teams. The best part is Celebi's Natural Cure,allowing it to take Toxic and Thunder Waves all day. Recover is for time on the field while Thunder Wave is a pain for Genesect and Scizor. Giga Drain destroys all Politoed while HP Fire destroys all Genesect and scizor that have been paralyzed. Th EVs make Celebi a bulky sweeper but a defensive set can also be used to take Terrakion on more.



Arkham (Forretress) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 208 Def / 48 SAtk
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Spikes
- Rapid Spin
- Gyro Ball
- Volt Switch
IVs:0 Spd
The best poke when it comes to both setting up and spinning away hazards. spikes and Rapid Spin are great moves while Gyro Ball coupled with Foretress's very slow speed make it a dangerous attacker and tank. Volt Switch is the only form of momentum o the team but every little bit helps. The EVs make this thing a tank to physical attacks from all directions.


PreppyDude (Terrakion) @ Choice Band
Trait: Justified
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Sleep Talk
At first I was a little skeptical about using a Choice Band Terrakion but I quickly came to see its beneficial effects on the team.For starters it gets the special defense boost from sandstorm. Secondly its just a beast,plain and simple. A choice Band Close combat 2HKO's een Skarmory. Stone Edge adds to the coverage and expands even more when combined with the legendary Edgequake combo. Sleep Talk allows me to Sleep Fauder Terrakion to Amoongus and Breloom only to suprise KO them with a attack. The EVs are straight and simple for maximum sweeping.


Fabian (Landorus) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Rock Polish
- Earth Power
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Ice]
The final sweeper of the team who cleans up whats left after entry hazards and constant attacks from his partners,most of the time he never even gets to sweep,but when desperate times call for desperate measures he can. After a rock Polish it easily out speeds and dispatches of the infamous Scarf Genesect with a STAB Life Orb Boosted and Sheer Force Boosted Earth Power.(Which is a power increase of 60% without STAB). Focus Blast is for any remaining pokes like Rotom-W while HP ice is for the dragons of OU.

Conclusion
Well this team at the moment is laddering pretty well and has done me some just good in OU,however its most major weakness is sun teams with Venusaur,who an easily KO the team unless Landorus gets setup. For now.my only thought on a poke to replace would be Heatran over Hippowdon,as it takes on all sun teams. Well this is it for now,hope you enjoyed the Supreme Sand~
