    Maribel's Sandstorm OU Team

    At a Glance
    FunDex FunDex FunDex

    This team aims to have as much Sandstorm abuse as possible. It's pretty old, and it needs improvement, especially because of the overload of physical sweepers. The team needs less physical sweepers while keeping the Sandstorm abuse.

    The Team
    FunDex
    Ridge Racer (Giant Enemy Crab) (M) @ Lum Berry
    Trait: Sand Stream
    EVs: 252 Atk / 48 Def / 208 SDef
    Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
    - Earthquake
    - Crabhammer
    - Stone Edge
    - X-Scissor

    The Sandstorm activator. I chose to give GEC four Physical attacks so he has a lot of damage dealing options (and is super effective a lot). The Lum Berry is to counter tentaquil leads with
    Spore, which will get X-Scissored in return.


    nope.avi (Engineer) (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sand Rush
    EVs: 204 HP / 52 Def / 252 SDef
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Rock Slide
    - Earthquake
    - Bulk Up
    - Slack Off

    Thanks to Sand Rush, great physical Defense and Bulk Up, Engineer can be fast, take hits and deal damage at the same time. He can heal as well. I should've said enough now.


    Dead Bones (Dry Bowser) (M) @ Dragon Gem
    Trait: Heatproof
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Dragon Claw
    - Dry Bone
    - Dragon Dance
    - Flare Blitz

    The other boosting sweeper. I gave it a Dragon Gem because I didn't want Life Orb's recoil; Flare Blitz is recoil enough.


    Strawberry (VIVIT-A) (F) @ Salac Berry
    Trait: Blaze
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Flamethrower
    - Flash Cannon
    - Energy Ball
    - Endure

    Endure allows the Salac Berry and Blaze to activate, making VIVIT-A's Flamethrowers lethal to almost everything unresistant. Flash Cannon is for secondary STAB and Energy Ball for Water coverage.

    FunDex
    LOL WUT (Lolwut Pear) (M) @ Black Sludge
    Trait: Thick Fat
    EVs: 252 HP / 100 Def / 116 SDef
    Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
    - Gunk Shot
    - Protect
    - Toxic
    - Earthquake

    This team's only true wall, sadly. I need another wall. Anyway, Toxic should not need explaining, nor should Protect together with it, and the pear also has two STAB attacks.

    FunDex
    L. Jenkins (Leeroy Jenkins) (M) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Scrappy
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Focus Blast
    - Overheat
    - Shadow Ball
    - Hidden Power [Electric]

    The team's Special sweeper. Due to Scrappy, Focus Blast hits Ghosts, which can be surprising for the opponent. Overheat is super effective on Medicine, Shadow Ball is for Psychic coverage,
    and Hidden Power's because this team lacks Electric.
