I am Limitless on Smogon.

This team got KG and I to 1660 and 1650 on the Smogon Server. I think that is a little better than "ok." However please back up your opinions on comments such as that.

Sure, it may have been that good in the previous metagame, but now it almost IS the metagame. from what i've played with it is has a problem with a late game metagross.

As I stated before, how someone plays a team, and another person is competently different.

I can break 1600 with that team easily on a new account. As stated in my counters list, I save some pokemon for latter in the match so that I won't get blown out of the water by certain pokemon.

I would like to note on here (since it would be pointless on Smogon) that I got it to 1663 with my original test account. A new account would have broken 1700, but since it's predictable now, I see 1600 as being more reasonable if it's played correctly.

Why would you leave it in against Donphan? This is what I mean -- playing it correctly.

Wow, that's even worse than saying Grass Knot. I bet it didn't even do 75%. If anything, Fire Blast would do the most damage since Grass Knot wouldn't be at its full power. The best thing you could have done would have been to switch to Zapdos. It's immune to Earthquake and wouldn't take much more than 30% from an Ice Shard.

But with the little evs in hp, why Mamoswine with leftovers? 1hko with about anything.

Just because something has little HP EVs doesn't mean it can't hold Leftovers. On the contrary, it takes many neutral, unSTABed Ice-type attacks (and other types) for less than 35% on average.

Which ones? HP(ice), Ice shard, Ice beam?

ok, its doing a little better now that im playing it right :)

Kevin Garrett

All of those, depending what it's coming from. Cresselia Ice Beam (not on a CM set) does around 30% and other Mamoswine/Weavile Ice Shards don't hurt too badly. HP Ice is a lesser form of Ice Beam, so yeah.

It moved me up to 1004 from 747 already.

Oh God, that only proves my thesis about playing the team correctly even more. Never ever force anything.

Don't let it set up. Worst case scenario is have Heatran blow up on it. Either way, you shouldn't have to since, you DON'T let it set up. Haha.

I would figure that Mamoswine could scare it off pretty easily. From observing this team, there are no surefire counters, but it's generally perceivable that no more than one Pokemon ought to die trying to kill it, if any. Quite frankly, though, I'm responding because I like the idea of this team. I still don't and never will like Heatran for its unsavory lack of aesthetics, but nevertheless, it's a good countermeasure to just about all the common threats.
