      Rules for Guide Tavern - Read Before Posting!   04/29/2016

        Welcome to the Guide Tavern. This section is for creating guides that help the community with anything PokeMMO related.     To create a guide, you must create a thread in the Work in Progress Guides section. Once approved, it will be moved to the regular Guide Tavern section. You need a minimum of 10 forum posts before you can create a guide. When creating a guide, it needs to look clean. This includes having proper punctuation, correct grammar and writing in full sentences. It also needs to be easy to read, so paragraphing and a bit of color are always good. Take a look at some of the completed guides to see what sort of standard your guide needs to be at. Do not create a guide that is asking a question. General questions can be asked here. Any questions relating to the topic of a guide can be asked in the thread of the guide itself. Do not create a guide that fulfills the exact same purpose as an already approved guide. You may add translations in other languages to your guide, but it must first be fully in English. Completed guides may be moved back to Work in Progress Guides As with all sections, the Code of Conduct applies, so please make sure you read and abide by those rules. Feedback on guides are more than welcome from the posters but please keep it constructive. If you feel a guide could benefit from something keep your feedback polite and on topic. Unnecessary and negative posts will be removed.   If you have any questions, or want advice on creating a guide, please send a private message to Zehkar

PokeMMO Generation 5 OU Competitive guide (when everything works)

Recommended Posts

hihats   

I'm a great believer of learning by doing. That is why I was just hoping for a starting point, a proven team build that works, something balanced just to jump in and try my hand at comp battling. And then as i get more experience, I will understand each pokemon's role in the team and come up with my own modifications based on preference, type of teams I am facing, problems i ran into, etc.

Since you state there are many different play styles, why not post a typical team build for each one of those and let the player pick and choose?

Ex. Hyper offensive team 

Defensive team

Weather team 

Status team

Gimmick team ? 

Not even sure some of those are actual teams, this is just what i got from reading the forums

 

Anyways, just providing a starting point of which pokemon to throw together would be very helpful to us newbies.

I'm coming from a sweep the entire storyline with one poke background, so seeing how these hundreds of pokemon interact and narrowing it down to 6, with moves and ev spreads and items and natures and making sure weaknesses are covered, typing, etc. well it's a bit much for someone that just wants to play and be relatively functional in a battle from the start.

 

As for my team, here it is, suggestions welcome! I can swap out any and all pokemon

 Blissey is much better with 252 def instead of 252 sp.def

Setwise, the rest seems fine, but too lazy to check how they pair with each other.

hihats   

thanks, ill fix that blissey. I gave the team a try, I lose half the time against the first battle of  Kanto lvl 90+ elite 4.

I doubt it would fare well against a real player. Seems like I can't get rid of key threats and so many pokes get 1HKO.

I mean tyranitar getting 1HKO by some random weavile...WTF?

Well yeah, my concerns are the same as I stated in the previous post but pachima already pointed out that Defense EVs are a must on Blissey. The concepts "status/gimmick" teams aren't exactly used in common terminology and weather teams are usually just Rain teams (Pelipper/Kabutops/Kingdra/Dragonite etc) and sand teams are TTar + Excadrill.

But in general note I'd say I'd recommend you to use 1-2 hard wallbreakers that are hard to impossible to fully wall by Hippowdon/Blissey/Skarmory/Jellicent. Such Pokemon are Lucario/Hydreigon/Reuniclus/Haxorus/Conkeldurr/Dragonite/Excadrill just to namedrop a few.

btw thanks for the replies OrangeManiac.

So lets say I replace starmie and aerodactyl for reuniclus and conkeldurr to address the walls?

 

So i would have:

blissey (bold + 252hp, 252 def)

skarmory

reuniclus

volcarona

conkeldurr

tyranitar

 

does that make sense? Would this be a competitively viable team? Thanks

That actually looks very solid team to me. I can't really think of an individual Pokemon that would completely destroy that team, which is what you aim in Singles teambuilds.

@OrangeManiacwhere is azumarill? Forgot? Or nothing much to say about it? 

Azumarill is not a projected OU Pokemon.

 

Even though it's one of the UU/BLs I wanted to add. So soon(tm).
