Hi and welcome to the SV PU Sample Teams! This thread's goal is to provide good and easy to use teams for players unfamiliar with the metagame. This is a community driven project, so all submissions are appreciated!!

Posting Guidelines
  • While not mandatory, please add a description to your submissions. These make it easier for people new to the tier to understand how to use them
  • Sample teams should be representative of the metagame. As such, teams with very niche Pokemon or sets have a lesser chance of becoming samples. Also, don't submit teams with unranked Pokemon!
  • not a posting guideline but if you ever have any questions / concerns about a team here, or if you want to submit a team and are unsure, feel free to reach out to me or anyone else on council!

Grassy Seed Wyrdeer Offense
:thwackey: :wyrdeer: :perrserker: :dachsbun: :pyroar: :basculin:
^ click for the paste ^

overview:
I wanted to use a Calm Mind + Grassy Seed Pokemon since Home gave us Thwackey, trying to use Hypno even up in NU and other goofy sets. I always knew a Pokemon with stats like Wyrdeer (525 BST) had to be secretly good despite everyone's initial first impressions of the Pokemon rating it quite poorly. I had the opportunity to test it at a relevant level when NJNP reached out to me asking if I could assist Giannis this week for NU in grand slam, and I told him I play PU a bit too so I started making drafts of this team.

Obviously this team is designed around the Grassy Terrain set by Thwackey, but this Pokemon has a ton of utility outside of setting terrain and dying (I'm looking at you Pincurchin..) With just an Eviolite + 252 HP, and no defensive investment, Thwackey avoids a 3HKO from Alolan Dugtrio's Iron Head, with speed for Timid Glimmet and Whiscash to get the edge on them with Taunt and Wood Hammer respectively. Knock Off is amazing in the tier and Thwackey's surprisingly good bulk makes it a solid pivot for the breakers on the team.

I decided Wyrdeer was best off with Sap Sipper. With Tera Ground this allows it to bait Grass-type attacks and also turn Gogoat into setup fodder. Sap Sipper also dodges Leech Seed and Sleep Powder, and the attack boosts can add to Stored Power's BP. 244+ Speed outpaces Scarf Basculin after an Agility. Tera Ground hits Skuntank and Steel-types like Tinkatuff and Perrserker, while also avoiding Thunder Waves.

Perrserker serves as a pivot that greatly appreciates Grassy Terrain reducing Earthquake's damage and passively healing it. I have Seed Bomb on here for Whiscash, but honestly I never used that or Close Combat. Tera Dragon is just all all-around amazing typing for pivots in the tier, resisting FWG attacks from Charizard/Pyroar/Basculin/Leafeon/etc...

Dachsbun is the necessary real Fire resist on the team, and also just naturally makes progress with it's amazing coverage. Wish can keep Perrserker healthy. Dachsbun also checks Fighting- and Dark-types like Tera Lycanroc and Persian-Alola.

Pyroar introduces an amazing speed tier as a wallbreaker, and with Taunt + Endeavor it can actually create outs against unfavorable MU's like IronPress Swalot and Chansey. Grass Tera Blast is boosted by Terrain to get more favorable rolls on targets like Carbink and Klawf.

Adamant Basculin is a perfect cleaner for a team that so perfectly takes advantage of bulky Grass-types. Not much to say about these last few Pokemon, they kinda just fill the void for an offense team. Tera Wave Crash can usually sweep super easily if Wyrdeer and Pyroar can weaken teams and take out Grass-types.

samples have been updated for august metagame, huge thanks to the people that submitted teams!! with the dlc coming up, as well as the october tier shifts soon after, there's a chance this might be the last update for a while, so apologies for that

we've updated our sample teams, but submissions won't be open until we go back to tier shifts happening once every 3 months; from our experience the past months, it can be rather treacherous when every metagame is so short-lived. however, we'll continue to update these once per month!!
