Regualar plywood will be fine, no particle board. Pressure treated is only needed in an outside environment that is going to be wet all the time. For that matter if you put it outside on blocks and painted it you'd still be good. Coal is wet but its not that wet and dries out pretty quick inside a basement as will the wood.
