Zeno FU SHUN HA Gray Yall boys made him quit im deeed pannu pack :smoking:as of recent ive lost any and all passion which i used to have for nd, some of my close friends definitely know and some of yall probs could've figured it out by me stepping down from everything and generally not playing the tier anymore. as i dont think ill ever play nd again i felt appropriate to make a post sharing my favourite teams over the years, unfortunately i dont feel like writing that up so ill just leave this pokepaste which is a heavily edited version of my builder (alot of shit teams removed, rlly just my all time favourite teams in here). some are def outdated but who cares abt that.
Any viable ditto will be running choice scarf.https://pokepast.es/00cb1e36198307b8
This team got me to around 1400 in ND AG you can switch cinderace out for a different Pokemon to make it OU after a certain point you have to use legends either way. I start out with either shuckle or lopunny depending on the situation and go from there. I save regi for end battling so I can set up and then it's just gg by then. I've had no problems with ditto either my whole team basically counters each other. Just try not to set up to much if you see a ditto. There not normally running scarf anymore just to trick you so it depends on speed ties at that point.
Z RAIN DANCE MANAPHY HYPER OFFENSEDecided to build around Z-Rain Dance Manaphy (Gives a +1 boost to speed) which turns Manaphy from a powerful wallbreaker to a potent wincondition once it's checks are gone. Team is here https://pokepast.es/bbb8e96625f113df
is the star of the show here, with Z-Rain Dance letting it boost it's speed and power of water type moves. It's great natural bulk in both stats and typing lets it set up well, possibly getting both a Tail Glow and a Rain Dance in one game. Additionally, it's quite flexible, so you can instead go for Hydro Vortex should that be the best option.
is a great partner. It helps deal with grasses like Tang and Ferro that wall Manaphy hard, and special walls like Blissey.
is arguably the only viable partner to Hawlucha on Hyper Offense, setting up screens, activating Unburden, Acrobatics, and the 1.5x defense boost, which, combined with invested bulk, allows Lucha to come in easily, in spite of it's poor bulk.
helps with bulky waters, esp physically defensive ones, deters defog attempts and offers utility in glare.
can get rocks up and go boom, not much more to say.
Finally, has access to arguably the best boosting move in the game, finishes the FWG core, can be sacked to scary phys attackers to fish for a burn should the mus be bad, and can be used as a secondary wincon.
