ingame bug team for link battleage and such.
EVs need a lot of work, i'm trying to go for survivability as much as possible considering how fragile most of these are.

Yanma@Leftovers
Trait:Compoundeyes
EVs: 252 att, 252 spd, 6 def
Nature:Jolly
-Hypnosis
-Screech
-Signal Beam
-Aerial Ace

Heracross@Leftovers [if i ever get a salac berry it'll get one]
Trait:Swarm
EVs: 252 att, 252 spd, 6 hp
Nature:Jolly
-Swords Dance
-Megahorn
-Endure
-Reversal

Ariados@Leftovers
Trait:Insomnia
EVs: 252 hp, 129 def, 129 sdef [no idea really, but it def needs to survive things...]
Nature: [again no idea, probably impish/careful/bold/calm]
-Spider Web
-Agility
-Baton Pass
-Night Shade

utility, can either trap things for yanma to screech at and kill, or give speed to hera

Parasect@Leftovers
Trait:Effect Spore
EVs: hmm.... 252 hp 129 def 129 sdef?
Nature: Impish/Careful
-Body Slam
-Light Screen
-Aromatherapy
-Spore

another utility poke. i don't know what EV spread/nature to use. do i give him more defense since i have light screen there, or do i boost light screen's usefulness by boosting s.def? or do i keep them equal[ish, i guess with maybe a little bit of attack] since all i'm likely to do is switch in, screen [and aromatherapy if needed] and then switch back out again? spore is kinda last ditch in case yanma's already been taken out [highly likely] cos otherwise i don't really need two sleep-inducing moves i imagine

for my last two slots i was thinking of using:

Armaldo@Leftovers
Trait:Battle Armour
EVs: *shrugs* 252 att, something
Nature:Adamant
-Swords Dance
-Earthquake
-Rock Blast
-Knock Off

and

Forretress@Leftovers
Trait:Sturdy
EVs: 252 def? 129 att 129 hp?
Nature: Impish
-Earthquake
-Counter/Explosion/Reflect
-Spikes
-Rapid Spin

however i've never used those last two pokes, so if i were to use them i might need some advice on breeding for movesets and such if poss.

cheers in advance guys.

Seems Ok

Heracross@Leftovers [if i ever get a salac berry it'll get one] Yeah... Salac Berry is good on This Hera Set.
Trait:Swarm
EVs: 252 att, 252 spd, 6 hp
Nature:Adamant (Jolly not needed here... Salac)

If you want Endurevving, you need Rock Slide over Swords dance really.

Nature: Adamant
-Sludge Bomb

Not sure
To be honest... Same.

I am not all that sure on a couple of them.
You could use Scizzor but fire weaknesses hurt bad.

Quite good, but your team should be an ALL-bug team. Because if you came across a strong flying type or fire type.. or whatever, then there's a chance that they will all be wiped out. Try adding different types of pokemon to your team.

Sorry if what I said was bad.

You first said it should be an all bug team, then you say that it needs more variety... Erm, make your mind up

Also the whole point of this team was to be a mono-type team...

Sorry, spelling mistake. I meant "Quite good, but your team is an ALL-bug type team".

Still, My point is that it is supposed to be an all Bug type. It is a Mono Team. People do it for fun. Like my one in my TC.

You could replace forry with scizor but you might prefer forry for spiking

He's fine using Forretress.

Dunsparce, where's the point in a Salac Berry if you don't have a move to guarantee it's activation? Salac is only useful if you can guarantee that it will work.

I typed the wrong berry :/ I was busy with antother Pokemon when I typed it.

Since this is in-game it doesn't matter whether Ariados even has a hold item or not. In-game, I like Lum Berry. Once you get one, plant it, water it, grow it, pick it, and repeat the process as. Heck, even hax items could be used on it! Quick Claw, Scope Lens, and Brightpowder all suck but it works in-game because EVERYTHING WORKS IN-GAME!

Armaldo needs Rock Blast for this team to work, Fighting Master.

Translation: He means Explosion.

EVERYTHING WORKS IN-GAME!
Chesto Berry-holding Banette, Pecha Berry-holding Venusaur, Cheri Berry-holding Hitmonlee, and Persim Berry-holding Slowbro all say "hi." lol

Yeah, I know you meant "Just about everything." I just felt like cracking a joke.
