OU Team

Greetings, Smogon

Today, I bring upon you an interesting team. I have no idea what kind of team it is. (stall, etc idk) I really tried to build it to counter a few teams with 2 or three pokemon. This is currently my main team, that I would prefer to use. I'm sure it looks like it was build by an amateur (and it was!), but this team has been successful many times. Of course, this team was also built for casual battle over intense competition, but I would love to compete!


Accelgore (Accelgor) (M) @ Leftovers

Ability: Hydration
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Bug Buzz
- Focus Blast
- Giga Drain
- Sludge Bomb

I chose Accelgor for his speed. He is normally used (on my team), in the middle of the match for sweeps. I prefer not to use him at the beginning so I can catch some teams off guard.

Cloyster (M) @ King's Rock
Ability: Skill Link
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Def / 40 Spd / 40 Atk / 176 HP
- Icicle Spear
- Shell Smash
- Rock Blast
- Rapid Spin

Cloyster is my main sweep. When I send him, I usually attempt to use Shell Smash, and if he can take the damage, His icicle spear is the way to go (at least for me)! He is also my Rapid spin guy! I equipped kings rock, because the effect is counted for hit on a multi-hit move. So if Rock Blast or Icicle Spear, do not appear to do any damage, at least I can make them flinch!

Tangel (Tangrowth) (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Chlorophyll
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 232 HP / 28 SAtk / 224 Def / 24 Atk
Timid Nature
- Leech Seed
- Hidden Power [Water]
- Knock Off
- Giga Drain

My Tangrowth is my stall-ish pokemon and sometimes I send him out 1st but usually second. He is a bit of a tank, and I sometimes put him up against Flying or Fire types. I use to annoy others when they attempt to kill him.

Bisharp (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Inner Focus
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Atk / 132 Def / 120 Spd / 4 SDef
- Iron Head
- Swords Dance
- Brick Break
- Stone Edge

Bisharp is my average guy. He doesn't really do much but he is my anti fairy type. He is just there to do simple damage, take damage, or simply set up a kill. However, I usually send him out last.

Chandelure (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Infiltrator
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 SAtk / 112 HP / 4 SDef / 140 Spd
Modest Nature
- Energy Ball
- Fire Blast
- Shadow Ball
- Hidden Power [Water]

Chandelure is the pokemon I usually send out first. He also takes care of substitutes. I send him out first to deal as much damage as possible without dying. Otherwise, I would send him out against any fire types if Tangrowth isn't already out.

Haxorus (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Mold Breaker
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 220 Spd / 252 Atk / 36 HP
Jolly Nature
- Poison Jab
- Earthquake
- Outrage
- Dual Chop

Haxorus is like my last resort. If it is 2 to 4, I make him use outrage or earthquake to level the playing ground. He really just a game changer (for me).

Well that is my team. I have also been looking for a mega I could use to my advantage, but Im never sure (If you can, Please reccomend) . This is the team I normally battle with and I thank you for reading this.

(If there are any grammatical errors, I am very sorry. Please try your best to interpret. Thank you.)
Your team is in dire need of a special wall. You have 3 weaknesses to fire, and with your main special attacker being fire, Heatran could demolish half your team. I'd swap out Tangrowth for a Jellicent, or since you already have a ghost weakness, a Gastrodon (which is always a blessing to have for rain teams). Plus, you have three crippling Ice weaknesses. If you really want
something fast, replace accelgor with Weavile. For your Cloyster, pull out all those unnecessary defense EVs and plug them into Attack where they belong. Cloyster's SpD is so low that having any EVs there is a waste as it isn't helpful, put those in speed. Actually, pull out some HP EVs and put those in speed as well. Hope this helps. Cheers!
You are also correct in saying Bisharp doesn't do much. If the opponent has a Lucario, he gone. Opponent has a Heracross? Oh he def gone. Salamence? Gone. Bisharp is honestly one of my fav gen V pokemon but he doesn't have much of a place on this team. I'm replace him with Skarmory to keep the steel typing, remove fighting weakness, and have a physical defender (something this team desperately needs)
Your team is extremely well balanced! I have a few Recommendations.
1. Do NOT underline the whole thing. I personally found it irritating.

2. As Rosenfeldius said, try getting a special tank on your team. I preferably would like Heatran as a fire special tank, Or you could have Chandeleur have Flash Fire instead of Infiltrator.

3. If you are gonna get a Bisharp, try this set on it. (Bold=New Recommendations)
Bisharp (M) @ Life Orb
Ability: Inner Focus
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Atk / 100 Def / 120 Spd / 4 SDef / 32 Spe
- Iron Head Iron Head
- Swords Dance Hone Claws/Swords Dance
- Brick Break Knock Off
- Stone Edge Stone Edge.
Knock off is extremely strong right now with that 127 Base power if oppenent is holding an item. Call it a OHKO on anything that dosn't 4x's resist it when you have 2+ attack. This is how strong Knock Off is.

(+2 252+ Atk Bisharp Knock Off (97.5 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Heatran: 322-379 (83.4 - 98.1%) -- 68.8% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock)
(+2 252+ Atk Bisharp Knock Off (97.5 BP) vs. 252 HP / 232+ Def Skarmory: 195-229 (58.3 - 68.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery)
(+2 252+ Atk Bisharp Knock Off vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Deoxys-D: 302-356 (99.3 - 117.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock)

Thats about all I have. Let me know how this team goes!
I really won't to get into competitive but I don't know what a good fire type that isn't a ledgendary. Please any suggestions.
Well Heatran's legendary but he isn't uber. Also Arcanine is one of the more notable ones, as well as Magmortar and Chandelure. Volcarona is also quite good.
