    Random information about team
    Idea of my team was simple, Volturn. Scarf Scyther could revenge weakened Emboars, Sawks, Pinsirs, Musharnas etc. Wide Lens Rotom-W because I hated missing with those Blizzards and needed HP Fire for Escavalier (I have no Pokemon which can safely switch in it). Natu for reflecting opponents hazards, because it limits time I can (it gets OHKOed by Stone Edge or 5hits from Rock Blast if my opps were intelligent enough to do so but idc) and it beat things like Jumpluff/Amoongus/Alamomola for me. I chose Rhydon because I wanted something with SR and ability to take hits from most of the psychical attackers. I took Rhydons EVs and moveset from Smogon because lazy. Cinccino was chosen because it had U-turn too and it could get some hax with its fast speed and King's Rock. Chinchou was chosen because I needed something which can take hit from Samurott or Rotoms. It also had Volt Switch and Heal Bell which was nice.[/HIDE]

    Standard hazard stall built around an Alomo/Rose/Misdreavus core, Skuntank to trap Eggy and other Psychic/Ghost types, Probopass to trap Esca and Klinklang, Gurdurr with Rest to break stall wide open and check stuff like Crawdaunt and Klinklang if Probopass is down but it always gets haxed to shit so I rarely get to sweep with it. Lay hazards, abuse Regen Alomo to survive almost any single hit, trap everything that threatens you, sit back and wait until they die.

    i have battled on pokemon online with this account a bunch before but never in the NU tier, so it should be okay i think.
    as for the style of team i am not sure, most likely random pokes based on offense

    BST's
    Rhydon: 485
    Roselia: 400

    Sawk: 465
    Dragonair: 420
    Skuntank: 479
    Average: 453.17[/HIDE]

    Quick summary of the team
    This team, although fun to play, didnt go according to my plans... I wanted to use a FWG core, similar to New Breed's, but the huge BST of Emboar (528) didnt allow me to fill it in my choicemon slot. Adversity found, i just used the next best thing, Sawk, which has stats just in the right place and teams up very nicely with Skuntank, the star of this team. Rhydon is there mainly for Stealth Rocks and its unrivaled ability of taking physical hits. Roselia and Alomomola make one of the best cores in the NU metagame, with Alomomola's Wish support getting Roselia out of some annoying situations. Dragonair in kind of the wildcard on this team, and was chosen due to its low BST, status absorbing and ability to setup on some walls like Alomomola or even Amoonguss, if Clear Smog isnt in play.

    I will post logs later

    Team style: dunno, never fought in NU :D

    Question: This goes off the NU list from PO, not smogon right? (even though you linked to smogon for the BST stats)
    Because i have trouble finding pokemon in the tier list of PO, like Granbull or Jumpluff for example, which i would love to use, but isnt listed in any tiers.

    Here is the info you'll need for our NU tier. We just used smogon's strategy dex because it's the most convenient tool to use for this.

    General rule of thumb: if a pokemon is not listed in a tier's ban list, and is not in a higher tier, then it is usable in that tier.
