So yeah, this is still easier then messing on goggle docs when using different computers.

My current goal is making a team which incorporates Articuno in all it's mediocre-ness into a useful player. This is for 4v4 Doubles (Singles would be a joke and smogon bans one of it's most useful tools.)

Akutaq (Articuno) @ Icium Z
Ability: Pressure
Level: 50
EVs: 220 HP / 4 Def / 4 SpA / 84 SpD / 196 Spe
Calm Nature
- Tailwind
- Mind Reader/Sky Drop/Protect/Roar
- Sheer Cold
- Freeze-Dry

EVs outpace Modest Heatran. and Scarf Lele after tailwind. 220Hp keeps HP odd at lv50 and lv100 should it ever face SR...

Early game it's role is to set tailwind up, then support or pressure the opponent still not sure what move is most useful. Z-Sheer Cold can OHKO most Zapdos and other Ice-weak mons. Freeze Dry is for a reliable attack and can ruin some rain teams hitting them 4x.

Late game Tailwind can be just as usefull, but Sheer cold can be rolled to remove tanks or opponents that would otherwise wall my team, it's cheap but it works.

Mind Reader+Sheer Cold can be effective though. ... -631032660
