Is it possible to make a team of six "one-man-army" Pokemon?
I mean like, all these six 'mons don't need to rely on one key player or each other to play out their own strategy so that when one of them is kill, you can still git gud no matter how many of them is left?
So mons that pretty much fit the S-rank definition on Smogon?
>Reserved for Pokemon that are amazing in the OU metagame. These Pokemon are usually able to perform a variety of roles effectively, or can just do one extremely well. Their use has low risk involved and high reward exerted. Pokemon in this rank have very few flaws that are patched up by numerous positive traits
While I went and got this, when the fuck did Azumarill go up to S-rank and why are people nominating Greninja for S-Rank
not that hard. In OU, Off the top of my head it would a combination of:
garchomp or mega garchomp
gyarados or mega gyarados
and probably some more that I haven't listed
basically anything with average to above average bulk, typing that gives it good STAB/resistances, a good attacking movepool, and solid offensive stats.
Better question: Why would you want to do this?
A team of six 'mons with a lot of cohesion between them will always do better than anything you can come up with here.
Or do you just suck at teambuilding?
I mean this thread is basically what HO is. It's more complicated than just "pick 6 attacking mons, give them all life orb/lum berry/choice item and go" but the overall idea is similar.
gengar, dragonite, ect.
teams where everymon is strong sounds like a good plan, but you'll lose to anyone that has a synergistic approach. I do: suicide lead/status spreader, dualscreener, physical attacker, bulky wall, glass special cannons
>when the fuck did Azumarill go up to S-rank
Little while ago. The Belly Drum set sweeps pretty much anything barring a few checks (which can be accounted for with team support), the Choice Band set is one of the better revenge killers available, and apparently Assault Vest is popular now too.
Greninja is being suggested for S-Rank because Protean makes it so versatile that it could easily fit on just about any offensive team.
It chooses it's STAB to fit what the team needs it to take out, and it's so fast that it can check most of the meta with the correct moveset.
Greninja is not even close to being S-Rank. Does everyone forget that a Mach Punch destroys that thing. Any dedicated sp. def pkm walls it as well. Alakazam with Focus Sash and HO is closer to being S-Rank, imo.
