Default Re: My HO Team

Heavy offence is a bit more than just slapping any five setup sweepers together with a dual screener so one can set up, you need to make sure you accommodate for the metagame's threats that don't care if you set up or not. Case in point, you have an entire team of physical sweepers, so things like Ferrothorn and Skarmory will have no issue laughing in your face should you lose Mence's fire blast (Which isn't even a guarantee now that Sturdy acts as a pseudo-focus sash), while any number of Gliscor sets could give you trouble. Bring in a couple of special sweepers first and foremost, whilst consultin this thread to see make sure you have common OU threats covered (Ignoring Excadrill and Thundurus of course, given their recent banning).
