[5th Gen] Triples
« on: November 03, 2013, 01:55:27 am »
Triples can be a very tricky and strategic metagame; especially teams that revolve around Protect and large area moves like Surf and Earthquake w/ Flying mons and Levitating mons, and not to mention the ever annoying Weavile/Whimsicott Beat Up + Terrakion Rock Slide/EQuake + Tornadus/Thundurus Tailwind gimmick. And I want to talk about a specific type of team I have been itching to try: a team that abuses the use of Flatter that speeds the use of setting up. For example:
Toxicroak @ Focus Sash, Jolly Nature
252 Speed 252 HP 4 Atk
Dry Skin
- Flatter
- Gunk Shot
- Cross Chop
- Toxic

Chansey @ Eviolite, Bold
252 HP 252 Def 4 SpDef
Natural Cure
- Aromatherapy
- Protect
- Toxic
- Seismic Toss

Politoed @ Leftovers, Bold
252 Def 252 HP 4 SpAtk
- Hydro Pump
- Protect
- Hypnosis
- Rain Dance

Clampearl @ Deepseatooth, Timid
252 SpAtk 252 Spe 4 HP
Any Ability
- Shell Smash
- Ice Beam
- Surf
- Protect
These are the four main Pokemon that will play a giant roll in this teams succes. The other two will only be filler and are not a huge part of this teams success. The first 3 sent out are Toxicroak (1st), Clampearl (in the middle; 2nd), and Politoed.
Turn 1
What you need to do is get Politoed out for Blissey, get Toxicroak to use Flatter on Clamperl and Clamperl to try to Shell Smash but trying not to get murdered, which is hard to do but not impossible, Ive done it before.
Turn 2
Clampearl use Protect and Blissey goes for Aromatherapy to cure its confusion , which I believe goes through Protect. Toxicroak then uses Protect to not get killed as well.
Turn 3
Blissey will want switch to one of the filler Pokemon (I prefer Cradily for Storm Drain), and then Clampearl uses Surf to murder everyone without Water Absorb, Dry Skin or Storm Drain. Ive sweept using a Clamperl before on Triples before so dont doubt me. It is a great meta, and I would recommend it if Showdown supported it..
