I’ve theorycrafted a New Moon team. I guess it could be used competitively but really I’m making it for in-game play (Already beat the Elite Four for the second time, final challenges are the Devs and Battle Frontier) Any suggestions to improve the team?
Spiritomb @ Dark Rock Ability: Noctem EVs: 255 HP / 255 Atk Adamant Nature
- Sucker Punch
- Knock Off
Spiritomb is my New Moon setter, has Sucker Punch for priority, Revenge for coverage, and Knock Off for STAB. Will-o-Wisp to cripple the physical attackers. It is decently bulky so it can switch in and out to reset weather or hit/cripple foes.
D. Volcarona @ D. Volcarona Armor Ability: Absolution EVs: 255 Sp.Atk / 255 Spd Timid Nature
- Dark Pulse/Lunar Cannon
- Sludge Wave
- Aura Sphere
Beastly all-out attacker, insane Sp.Atk under Absolution should nuke almost anything with my perfect coverage. Dark Pulse for functionality outside of new Moon. Pretty good Defenses too with the armor. Would be using Roost except Full Restore outclasses it
D. Blaziken @ No item Ability: Gale Wings EVs: 255 Spd / 255 Atk Adamant Nature
- Zen Headbutt
- Hone Claws
Talonflame 2.0. Priority acrobatics makes it good for revenge killing, Zen Headbutt and Superpower for coverage. Hone Claws for when you get a chance to set-up( Hone Claws is like Swords Dance under new Moon)
D. Typhlosion @ D. Typhlosionite Ability: Lightningrod/Supercell EVs: 255 Sp.Atk / 255 Spd Timid Nature
- Flash Cannon
- Dark Pulse
- Energy Ball
Borked all-out attacker number two, Supercell grants it 1.5x special attack under New Moon. Tbolt and flash cannon for STABS, Dark Pulse is boosted under New Moon and Energy Ball for coverage.
Keldeo @ Choice Specs Ability: Justified EVs: 255 Spd / 255 Sp.Atk Timid Nature
- Hydro Pump
- Secret Sword
- Icy Wind
Wallbreaker. Spam scald to get burns, Hydro Pump if necessary for the extra damage. Secret Sword is secondary STAB and killing specially bulky Pokemon, Icy Wind for coverage and lowering speed.
D. Metagross (Ruin) @ Life Orb Ability: Rock Head EVs: 255 Spd / 255 Atk Jolly Nature
- Hone Claws/Rock Polish
- Wood Hammer
- Head Smash
Metagross Ruin is here to spam op STABs and setup if possible. Hone Claws will fix iffy accuracy/boost attack to hilarious levels, and Rock Polish lets it sweep.
That’s my New Moon Team! I should probably be running more than one New Moon setter, but I have no idea where to put it. Have any thoughts? Thanks for reading.
