Swords danbce actually is sure to get a KO in your Opponents team as they usually switch in Regive/Special walls to wall it. It is a good Path breaker to support other sweepers like Musharna but not good as a sweeper itself

I would probably say Sawk. He makes an excellent revenge killer with a Scarf and a pure beast with a Choice Band. He is certainly a threat to most teams, since very few Pokemon can take a hit from Sawk.

I have to agree with you on that one. Sawk can be a huge threat. Most people use Scarfs though so it's easier to set up and hit back. That's why I changed EQ to Bonemerang on my Marowak so that if I manage to succecfully BP to him on sawk it can break sturdy and KO it.

bonemerang should usually be used by Marowak anyway.

yes, for sturdy users and also sub users. as you can break subs and get some damage in.

Yup it's a life saver, and thanks to Marowak's incredible attack once equipped with a thick club it's one of the few moves that can seriously put a dent in Rhydon ,or OHKO it if Marowak has s +2 attack boost, which is a serious threat in NU.

The only reason people opt for EQ over boomerang on Marowak is due to the 90% acc of boomerang which really sucks >.>

Yup. That 90% accuracy can kill you. It's caused me to lose about 2 battles, it's still preffered though as so many Pokemon use sashes and have sturdy.

As an NU player Golurk is probably the strongest NU pokemon. With Golurk under a sub, things like Skuntank or Golem cant stop him and can hit with a powerful Earthquake back.

Next to the list is Scarfed/Banded Sawk. Sawk being the #2 most used in the NU tier, it
is a threat to almost any team without Musharna. It can spam Close Combats to your team without worrying of getting 1HKOed because of its wonderful ability in the name of Sturdy.

At the third spot is Banded Kangaskhan. Kangaskhan reaches a very good amount of power when it equips Choice Band. With its ability in the name of Scrappy, even ghost types are not safe. Kangaskhan with great support can act as a very good and effective pokemon. Smile

PostSubject: Re: Strongest pokemon in NU   June 10th 2012, 7:09 pm

I honestly have not really been threatened by any of those pokemon except for Sawk. It's probably because my team counter them completely.

I usually just OHKO Golurk's because pretty much my whole team can do it so I have honestly never had a Golurk pose any threat to me because they never stay for more than 2 turns.

I admit that Sawk is a major threat in NU because of it's ability sturdy and high attack stat. I have faced a lot of Sawk so I have learned to counter them quite easily though they still pose threats especially late-game when some of my counters are KO'd.

Kangaskhan is also a threat but not a big one really because everytime I see one in my opponents team I keep my Rotom-S to counter it. I cripple it with Will-O-Wisp to lower it's physical damage and my Rotom can easily take a hit from Kangaskhan so in the next turn it can just use pain split to regain health while dealing damage.

So my team kind of counters them so I don't recieve much of a threat from any of those but Sawk, but they are still major threats I used another team for a while and Sawk and Kangaskhan posed serious threats.(I didn't face a Golurk but it probably would of also posed a major threat.

Golurk is actually a pretty weird case. it works in every tier except for Ubers, from OU to NU. While on paper it seems great, while battling it really is not as good as you will expect it to be, but it still is nice.

On Smogon it definitely has to be Bambi <3
It's really strong and has decent speed, is adorable(!) and can be called Sawsbuck-WIN.

On PO it's either Sawk because it has that raw power or Specs Emboar because SCALD PWNS PEOPLE

E-vire and Archeops are also pretty big threats. I've faced a few and I have to say that they seriously pose a problem to most teams especially if you're using a team that needs to set up because they just full out attack

Another pokemon that i find powerful is Scarfed/Banded Scyther. Some PO players like Gl4ss managed to use Scyther competitively without worrying about the SR damage. If you're using Scyther, Rapid Spin Support IS A MUST or else it will die after 2-3 switches (depending on evs ofc.) Scyther overall is a scary pokemon to face with.

Electivire sucks, sure it can go mixed but mixed e-vire can kill almost nothing and you should always go 100% physical, even then with it's not too strong as Golem, Rhydon, Regirock can easily kill it. Archeops can easily destroy teams but priority and stealth rock damage weakens it really fast.

Gl4ss Isn't really tough to beat and Scyther is always a on knife edge as if SR is on then its kinda wasted

Yeah, Gl4ss isn't so hard to beat, and Scyther works great, only if you have a spinner.

Ludicolo needs rain. Marowak needs Trick room.


I prefer Choice Banded rampardos in trick room, works better than marowak I think

That's like saying my Sun Boosted Flash fire boosted Blaze Boosted Specs Charizard Blast burn is the most powerful. Trick room is a condition and can't be taken into account

Charizard doesn't get Flash Fire :O, either change it to Typhlosion or change flash fire to Solar Power. Razz (I do know what you meant when you posted this but why not troll?)

I failed, didnt realise you guys were on page 3, only read page 1 =.=






Banded Rampardos hits 700 Atk. Better than your +2'd random base 100 sweeper. Just that this is a piece of slow shit so needs a bit of support

Actually I always set up and kill any Rampardos that I face because they don't really pose a threat to my team because my whole team pretty much counters it, though it ca't be denied that it's powerful.

Some people lead with it and I don't think that leading with a banded Rampardos is too smart because you can just switch into a pokemon that resists it, and it works great as a revenge killer.

Ludicolo is a nightmare for offensive/frail teams, but he hasn't that much power. Imo, CB Emboar has to be the most powerful poke in NU. Which poke isn't 2HKO'ed by the appropriate move?
