Pokémon VGC Team #2: VGC2015 Rhydon Team

Image
Since I've been having some success with this team, I decided to post about it. The team revolves around a very interesting Pokémon known as Rhydon. I decided to use Rhydon because its arguably bulkier and stronger than its evolution Rhyperior. The team was built to help Rhydon perform its job in getting off mass amounts of damage & ultimately winning the battle.

At 79 HP, 120 Defense, & 115 Sp. Defense, it will be taking multiple hits & staying on the battlefield for a very long time. The team was built to support Mega Blastoise, taking out its threats, and helping it achieve victory.

The Mega Evolution of the team. Like I said above, its defenses mean that Mega Blastoise is a very bulky Pokémon, but also doesn't slouch in the offenses department. With 135 in Sp. Attack, Mega Blastoise will be hitting very hard. The defenses allow Mega Blastoise to take 86.8% at most from Modest, max Sp. Attack Thundurus. It also takes Double-Edge from Mega Kanga…
