My Sand Team
« on: October 03, 2014, 12:46:25 AM »
Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying, and to Love Sand Veil

If you know, me, you'll know that I'm absolutely terrible at this. However, I'm also terrifying with the Sand Team, my only strategically-built team. Everything else I made out of whimsy.

In annnnny event, Here's the team!

T Suika (F)
Rash, 252 Att/4 Spe/252 SpA
Shell Bell
Sand Stream
-Earth Power
The front slot to set up the sandstorm, TSuika is here to do some first-hit damage before switching out to someone better to destroy the opposition. Earth Power/Flamethrower for STAB, Thunderpunch to cover against Water, and Toxic to just add onto the whittling away.

H Lyrica (F)
Timid, 4 Def/252 Spe/252 SpA
Ganlon Berry
Sand Veil
-Baton Pass
-Hyper Voice
Not only is Performance (and Hyper Voice, I guess) here for STAB, it's also to prevent Rest! Unfortunately, this is a Gen III-based server, so no Heal Block. Or at least none I'm aware of. Meaning DKaguya can still ruin you with her sheer bulk + Recover + Leftovers. Anyways. Sand Veil to make her harder to hit, meaning she has a better chance of Passing her Agilities to slower teammates.

D Momiji (F)
Impish, 252 HP/252 Def/4 SpD
Maid Uniform
Sand Veil
-Blade Flash
-Killing Bite
-Swords Dance
She originally had Howl, but then I remembered that Swords Dance did double the whammy. Hm. Anyways, one of the teammates you should have Lyrica Pass on her speed to. Sand Veil is here, and if I were a cleverer person, she would also have a Lax Incense. Blade Flash and Killing Bite here mainly for STAB, and Earthquake is here for getting rid of those pesky hedgehogs Fire Touhous. I've seen this exact Touhou destroy an A Murasa in one hit. God bless D Momiji.

Tenma (M)
Modest, 4 Def/252 SpA/252 SpD
Airline Uniform
Sand Veil
-Air Slash
-Ancient Power
Detect and Roost because I'm a paranoid bitch. Anyways, with Tenma out of retirement, I no longer have to bring in Nazrin to do things. Airline to power up Air Slash, and Ancient Power because his only other Special Earth move is Mud Shot. You see my ideas. He's only here to do random things, like, well, stall for time while T Suika's Poison and the Sand whittle you down to nothing.

D Tewi (M)
Careful, 252 HP/4 Def/252 SpD
Serene Grace
-Body Slam
-Lucky Chant
-Rapid Spin
Serene Grace brings out the best in D Tewi's Body Slams. Lucky Chant and Reflect to live up to his "Defense" title. Rapid Spin because who knows if the opponent has Spiked the place. Also good for getting rid of Leech Seeds. D Tewi is a complete support role and should not be used for direct combat.

T Toyohime (M)
Quiet, 4 Def/252 SpA/252 SpD
Petaya Berry
Own Tempo
-Calm Mind
-Earth Power
Now for another one you should have Lyrica Pass speed to. Toyohime, if used right, will be terrible to fight, if only because you played it right and he's stacking Calm Minds. Recycle is here to reuse the Petaya Berry, though it might be ridiculous to use, now that I think about it... Surf and Earth Power to compliment his types and Special Attack. If done right, T Toyohime is good as a special STAB-based sweeper, and therefore wonderful to take out those who would dare try to destroy D Momiji, but otherwise try to keep him out of the fight unless necessary.

That's the Sand Team!!! Horrendously gimmick-y, reliant on Evasion, and horrific to fight if luck is on the wrong side. If you're going to use it to fight, have fun!

Other options for this wreck include: Any Yuugi form, Aki Sisters, Mimi-chan.

Not to insult you, but any water type will horribly wreck your team - 4 of your mons are weak to water and none resist it.
