Rain is, and always has been my favorite playstyle for a bulk offensive team. I really loved that this game had a Pokemon like Mega D. Typho - When I was really into greek mythology I loved Zeus and this pokemon reminds me of him. This is my first time making a team building post, but I really want criticisim on it so gimme all you got. Thanks for your time!
Delta Serperior @ Damp Rock
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe

Delta Typhlosion @ Mega D. Typhlosionite
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 SpD

Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet

Delta Dragonite @ Choice Band

Question: I heard that you could run a Special Attack D. Dragonite with Thunder, Scald, Ice Beam, and Volt Switch. Would this potentially be viable?
Keldeo @ Choice Specs

- Icy Wind
- Hydro Pump
- Secret Sword
Not sure on my last Pokemon, do any of you guys have any ideas? Thanks.
Play pokemon omricon lmao the evil team is based around zeus.
Fellow rain enjoyer here!
Heh, I see one beginner rabbit here: Ferrothon’s set. Having max Def and Max SpD is not a good idea if you don’t have absurdly high HP like Chansey, Blissey or Giratina. Ferrothorn also need the Leftovers recovery as it lack reliable ways to get HP. Ingrain basically turn your Ferrothorn into a free kill if you opponent have a Fighting or Fire type since you can’t switch out. This is what I would recommend:
Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
Ability: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 88 Def / 168 SpD
IVs: 0 Spe
-Spikes / Stealth Rock (Spikes if you can use another Stealth Rock user, both could be used on the same set)
Also, yes, a special set for Dragonite is viable, but then, your team get maybe too much specially oriented. I also like using Air Balloon sometimes to get rid of Ground Types.
As for last, I would like to recommend Delta Regirock with Dry Skin, however, your team get destroyed by many Earthquake users. Here, I would recommend a ground immune Pokémon who can Defog if used for competitive battle. For adventure, then just going for a good Ground Immunity is great enough. Here are my pick:
- Tornadus-T for high speed and Regenerator.
- Delta Blaziken for priority Hurricane. Also pack Defog.
- Delta Volcarona because it’s the best Delta in the game and can do everything.
After that, if you can make space for Delta Regirock, it can also be nice.
Thanks for the feedback! I haven’t rlly used Ferrothorn before so idk how he works so thanks for the discussion. Im excited to try this team out.
Ferro is pretty straight forward. It switches in, setup hazards and/or leach seed then switches out when it is threatened. Knock Off is also a good option on this set btw.
alr cool. Do u think a d wheezing could work in the last slot? It has a ground immunity, gets thunder and hurricane as well as STAB boomburst with the Amplifier ability.
Could work, but it’s kinda weak.
