PostSubject: Welcome to the Battle Tower! (3-on-3 Singles)   Thu Apr 29, 2010 9:58 pm

My 3-on-3 Singles Team at a glance:

Metagross @ Life Orb
-Clear Body
*Adamant Nature
252 Atk, 244 Spe, 12 Def
~Meteor Mash
~Ice Punch

You were reading this, and when you saw Metagross in the 'glance', especially in the beginning, you sighed: Here we go with the goddamn Stealth Rocking, Asploding, waste of a Titan again. But then you saw the words 'Life Orb', made sure you weren't mistaking those words for 'Occa Berry', and laughed: finally, a Metagross that isn't lead!

Honestly, I think with a 3-on-3, wasting maximum power (agility and 506 Atk with Life Orb) for minimum damage (Stealth Rock), especially when it's only a 3-on-3. If I were less restricted, I would've opted for Heatran or Swampert. But I'm not, so let's continue.
Life Orb is obvious, giving it a truly Titan-ic 506 Atk. Adamant Nature is to make sure that's 506, and not Jolly, because, with around 670-690 Spe after Agility, do you need more Spe? You obviously outpace alot of Pokemon.
The EV Distribution is obvious for the Atk, and I went with 244 Spe since I don't want to waste Gross's Def.
Agility: The point of the whole set, LOL
Meteor Mash: 150 BP *STAB*, and the chance it might double its Atk Stat.
Earthquake: A true option for Metagross. Also to take out Fires.
Ice Punch: I am NOT asploding. And I went with Ice Punch and not Fire Punch to deal with Grounds, so Metagross can deal with all types here.

Latias @ Life Orb
*Timid Nature
252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 HP
~Calm Mind
~Dragon Pulse

The standard Calm Mind set. Going offensive, since you really only need 1 Wall in 3-on-3, and Blissey takes the spot (while Metagross takes Offensive hits).
Timid is because, SpA without Modest Nature, but with Life Orb and after 1 CM, is 700. I don't need anymore, and plus, Latias doesn't have any Spe boosting moves. I have to max out Spe to outspeed SOMETHING, and max out SpA to make sure that gastly 700 stays a 700.
Calm Mind: Yet again, the point of the set.
Dragon Pulse: STAB and a strong move.
Surf: Something for Steels, I would've opted for STAB Psychic but that doesnt have much synergy with Dragon Pulse
Recover: Ha, you think you can get away with Body Slamming me? Think again! Latias, use Annoy and Frustrate!

Blissey @ Leftovers
-Natural Cure
*Calm Mature
252 HP, 252 SpD, 4 SpA
~Seismic Toss

Blissey is the awesomest Physical Sweeper ever.
Time to be a bitch!
In a 6v6, I defintly would've replaced Protect with Aromatherapy. But since there are only 2 other Pokemon, you can't really do that. So, it's time to stop copying of Smogon and START STALLING LIKE AN ANNOYING GAY MUTATED PINK KANGAROO!Leftovers is to heal it's massive 714 HP even more, and Natural Cure is like that dream Latias with 5 move slots that allowed Refresh and Recover and other moves.As for the EVs, I saw I definitly needed all that HP to stall all I can with Protect then Softboiled until the opponent died of poison. Also, it's here to be a buddy with Latias and totally, 100 percent, suck up Special Sweepers. Go home, Gengar and Heatran
Protect: Quick! Stall!
Softboiled: Protect is gonna miss... I better make up for that 40 HP loss.
Toxic: Hahaha you're dead.
Seismic Toss: What? It's not like I can do anything else with my fail 10/75/55 Sweeping Stats!

Main Problems:
Metagross: Should I make it SR Lead? Is SR necessary even in 3 on 3?
Latias:Should I make it defensive? Is 2 Sweepers, 1 Wall okay?
Blissey: Should I just replace this little gay fatso? I mean, other than Metagross, no one can take Atk hits. Do I replace Blissey with Skarmory or Foretress, something that can set up Spikes/Stealth Rock AND take Atk hits? Or is 255 BST HP enough?

Thanks for all your help! And if you don't help, I will SPAM you with PMs telling you to RMT!
