Reeve Tyranitar.
# 248.
Type: Rock/Dark.
Ability: Sandstream.
Locations: Evolve Pupitar (Firered, Leafgreen, XD), Snag from Cipher Head Evice (Colosseum).

Hi everyone. Another Reeve’s favorite this week, this big guy is an important part of my team. Why? Because Tyranitar wins battles. It is awesome in late game and an important part of a good strategy in doubles.

Tyranitar’s weak point is speed. Fortunately, it learns Dragon Dance. Some of you might think Sandstream is a bad thing. Sandstorm could hit your own team, but not if you know how to build a T-tar team OR when to call Tyranitar. Remember I told you this Pokémon is great in late game.

This week’s suggested move combination; Tyranitar has a very wide move pool, but there’s a standard combination that’s very easy to use and very effective as well.

Nature: Jolly (+ Speed, -Special Attack).
Equip: Lum berry.
EV´s: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Rock slide
- Aerial ace

The Physical attacker Tyranitar is very simple. Use dragon dance once or twice, then Sweep away. You could use Taunt instead of Aerial ace and you have a different set, effective as well…

When should I use this Pokémon?
Use it in late game. Do not open battles with this one unless you have the correct team. Works great against Blissey and Miltank as well. Use the Taunt set for Umbreon or Crobat.

What should I use against this Pokémon?
Anything with a strong Fighting move. Tyranitar has a combined rock-dark type. So it is 4x weak to Fighting. A fast enough Blaziken could one-hit KO Tyranitar. Even Hitmonlee might work. Just be sure you have a fast Pokémon with a fighting attack and you’ll be ok.

Bottom line:
I love this one. But most of you will find Sandstream as a disadvantage. Use it if you feel like. I think you’ll be quite satisfied with the results.


Hope you enjoyed.
