View Full Version : Team Akatsuki (updated) (rmt HELP)

10-24-2008, 09:30 PM

Starting things off: Ok so. I need some help here. I know this is far from perfect, but the problem is I really dont know what to change or how. I was thinking of switching toxicroak for a raindancing Kabutops, thought im not removing any EQ weeknes with that. And im also gaining another dubble weakness to Grass, and adding lighting and fighting weakness to the mix aswell. Ir eally dont kinow what to do here.
Please help :D

General information:

After looking at my team I realized I could probobly fit some akutski members to the pokes (some where more succesfull thought)
So I made a go and here is the result.
Also, dont forget to rate the team and give input on what to change as you would any other team. Thank you

Kakuzu is a missing-nin from Hidden Waterfall. His body was stitched together by strange tendrils which he used to rip out the hearts of his opponents and then insert into his own body giving him an aditional life (1up LOL!)

Azelf @ Focus Sash
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 4 Atk/252 Spd/252 SAtk
Naive nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Stealth Rock
- Psychic
- Explosion
- Flamethrower

The idea came to me when I saw the focus sash, an extra life, just like Kakuzu(even thought he actully has 7 :P ).
This azelf is my lead and works wonders as an antilead, taking down fast but fragile leads expecting to OHKO it.
If its a slow lead without hurtfull WeatherEffects I set up stealth rock first.


Kisame engaged in murder and rebellion in his home country, fleeing Mist he joined Akatsuki. Kisame is partnered with Uchiha Itachi.
Kisame specializes in water technices.

Swampert (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 240 HP/154 Def/116 SAtk
Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Roar
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam

Blue... water... looks a bit creepy... yeah that description fits both Swampert and Kisame.

This is my bulky water, hydropump for massive damage on things like skarm and other walls, roar is nice to have as far as phazing goes (assuming im not OHKO`D by the thing setting up.
EQ is there for STAB and Ice Beam for cover.

Deidara is from Hidden Rock and he utilizes mouths on his palms to create exploading ninja-technices.
Deidara often chose to self-detonate himself to show the true beauty of his art.

Metagross @ Shuca Berry
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 152 HP/252 Atk/104 Spd
Adamant nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Meteor Mash
- Explosion
- Rock Polish

"damn almost dead... *KABOOOM*" Yepp, its the master of explosions Deidara or in this case Metagross ^^.
I dont know what to call this set, I guess its a standard Agility-gross.
Set up Rock Polish, il live 100% of the EQs with Shuca Berry on my side.
Then just MM away untill its time to explode.
This is the one guy im not really sure of, im missing some special attack force here, but so far its been doing pretty good.

After murdering everyone in his clan, Uchiha Itachi fled his village and joined Akatsuki.
Itachi is a great fighter, he uses hand to hand combat and his sharingan to criple and torment his foe.

Gengar (M) @ Expert Belt
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 64 Atk/252 Spd/192 SAtk
Hasty nature (+Spd, -Def)
- Focus Punch
- Substitute
- Shadow Ball
- Hypnosis
So focusing first on Itachis trademark, the sharingan, wich is an eye technique, hypnosis fits well here.
Next up we have a sub, wich in itself represents his shadowclone-jutsu.
After the "clone" is up, I proceed to focus punch.
Its a pretty standard Sub-punching gengar.



Tobi is a close to mid-range fighter, the problem is... no one knows what he can do!

Toxicroak (M) @ Choice Band
Ability: Dry Skin
EVs: 6 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd
Jolly nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Cross Chop
- Stone Edge
- Sucker Punch
- Pursuit
Now here is my triumph card, just like tobi, few people know exactly what to expect untill its to late.
Sucker punch is for fast ghosts and pshychers, stone Edge for cover (even thought ive never used is)
You will think twice after facing this chap, Cross Chop can possibly 2HKO a cune ^^.

Hidan practices an evil god cult religion named Jashin. This religion loves chaos and death, and Hidan himself is near immortal, surviving after being decapitated.

Dusknoir (M) @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/6 SDef
Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Will-o-wisp
- Ice Punch
- Pain Split
- Shadow Sneak

He just wont die, its true.
WoW phys-attacker, then go Painsplit and kill, its really that simple.
This guy works wonders soaking up attacks and slowing down sweapers like garchomp and salamance.

Add remove conifg, do whatever :D ty!

Tyranitar - As a Lead this thing is KILLER, I usally just blow up on it. Otherwise my team can handle it pretty well.

PorygonZ - Almost my entire team
