Corona the Solrock
Adamant / Levitate / Focus Sash
4 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Speed
- Sunny Day
- Stone Edge
Solrock is here to set up Sunny Day and wreak enough havoc on the traditional NU Leads before Exploding. The first thing to do is to Protect, stopping any Tricks, Thunder Waves/Status or Fake Outs. This also serves to scout out what they may switch into or what moves they possess. Solrock is Sashed, so that it at least gets one more turn to set up Sunny Day or Explode, whatever comes first. Stone Edge is there as an additional move to use later, if I feel the need to save my lead and re-use it at the end instead of Exploding.
Mina the Bellossom
Adamant / Chlorophyll / Wide Lens
200 HP / 252 Attack / 4 Speed / 52 Special Defense
- Sleep Powder
- Swords Dance
- Seed Bomb
- Drain Punch
What? A Physical Bellossom? Are you insane?
No, not at all. I find that Physical Bellossom is one of the most interesting and unexpected Chlorophyll users. Most expect to see a Victreebel or a Special Bellossom, which results in them sending out either a Special Sweeper (such as Magmortar) or a Pokemon with high Defense (such as Steelix). However, with Sunny Day up and Chlorophyll in place, a Wide Lens'd Bellossom has the chance to pull off a Sleep Powder and can either Swords Dance on the switch or SD while the other Pokemon sleeps. Seed Bomb is the resident STAB move while Drain Punch gives Bellossom the chance to dent those high defense Pokemon that will not fall to a Grass move as well as replenish HP.
Firenze the Typhlosion
Modest / Blaze / Choice Scarf
56 HP / 100 Defense / 252 Special Attack / 100 Special Defense
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power Grass
Most people laugh at my odd EV spreads, but with a max Special Attack and a Choiced Speed, I allocated the other EVs to HP and the Defenses to allow the Special Sweeping to continue. Eruption is the greatest move a Typhlosion can have, especially when it's under a Choice Scarf. Flamethrower is the alternative, when Typhlosion's HP falls below half. Focus Blast is to take care of all those Normals running around NU such as Chansey, Miltank and Tauros. Last but not least, Typhlosion's main threats are from Rock, Ground and Water Type Pokemon - all of which can be countered with a nice Hidden Power Grass.
Clifford the Castform
Modest / Forecast / Heat Rock
80 Defense / 176 Speed / 252 Special Attack
- Sunny Day
- Ice Beam
I was debating on whether to use Castform or Lickilicky, and I chose Castform simply because no one knows what's coming from it because of the wide array of Special Attacks it can learn. However, I may replace it with Lickilicky if that is the overwhelming majority. Sunny Day and Heat Rock proide for my second Sunny Day Pokemon. Why does Sunny Day need to go up if most of your Pokemon don't benefit from it? Well, many on my team can dominate with their Fire typed moves or since they resist fire (such as the case with Quagsire and Solrock) they can take down any Fire typed opponents with Earthquake or Stone Edge. Weatherball is boosted by STAB and the Sun. Ice Beam is to take care of Flying or Ground types. Thunderbolt is for Water or Flying types that may want to switch in.
Quagmire the Quagsire
Impish / Water Absorb / Lum Berry
252 HP / 4 Attack / 252 Special Defense
- Ice Punch
I love Quagsire. He is easily one of my favorite Pokemon and for good reason. Cursecover. Cursing Quagsire can sweep teams and STILL retain being a Wall. Now with max Special Defense, Quagsire can live a majority of Grass moves and begin Cursing up, ready to throw an Ice Punch at any Grass or Flying Pokemon that may come in. Earthquake on a Cursing Quagsire is deadly to everything without Levitate or a secondary Flying type. And lastly, since everyone likes to Toxic Stall this beastly Water Pokemon, he comes loaded with not only a Lum Berry, but Recover. In addition, he comes with Water Absorb for all those who like to Surf away the Fire types and even in the sun, Quagsire resists and packs a punch.
Mel Gibson the Pidgeot
Lonley / Tangled Feet / Life Orb
4 HP / 252 Attack / 100 Speed / 152 Special Attack
- Brave Bird
- Quick Attack
Pidgeot CAN work well on a Sunny Day team, as long as Magmortar is exterminated, since a Scarf'd Thunderbolt can eat through any Flying type. Brave Bird helps dent ANYTHING with STAB, max Attack and a Life Orb. Heatwave works exceptionally well on a Sunny Day team, and most don't expect it from a Roosting Pidgeot. Roost works to recover Life Orb damage and Quick Attack is a STAB, LO priority move.
