You're not going to be seeing any of them in a B/W playthrough.

Besides, you can always switch out. Ninetales is often just coming in as a lead, setting up the sun, and getting out to let a more suitable party member do the job. It's rare that Sun won't be set up and even if it isn't, no Pokemon are rendered completely useless. Only Exeggutor will have difficulties.

I find it very hard to rate this team, because I don't understand what the goal is of using the Pokémon you are using. Can you post some explanations?

The movesets are just fine, there is nothing that can be improved if there is no function which has to be achieved.

I hope you understand this, especially since my english isn't the best, but pleas post some explanations. Then I will try to rate it.

Yeah it was kinda lazy of Aura not to post explanations, but then, I can't talk since I didn't post it because I was watching the football. x)

As I helped make this team, and I didn't write the OP, I'll do some brief ones now.


Ninetales

Is a straightforward special sweeper and Sun inducer. Everything is obvious except for HP[Ground], which kills Fires that otherwise wall a lot on this team.


Dragonite (btw Aurawarrior I'd say we should go with Multiscale because of Roost + Lefties)

Our physical sweeper. The EVs outspeed a Max Spe Base 130 after a single Dragon Dance, max Atk, dump into HP, and then removes weakness to residual damage by displacing 4 EVs from HP into Def. Roost because Draggy is bulky, Dragon Dance and Dragon Claw are obvious, and Fire Punch murders stuff in the Sun, as well as getting all the coverage we'll ever need alongside Dragon Claw.


Rhyperior

Loves the sun because it lessens the Water weakness and helps Fire Punch hit harder. QuakeEdge coverage and Double STAB. Avalanche because Rhyperior is slow and there is no real need for Megahorn when we have Fire Punch to take out Grass Types anyway.


Blissey

Is our supporter / Toxistaller. Her EVs allow her to hit the minimum Leftovers+1 recovery point and then work to meet maximum defensive potential. Ice Beam because we didn't need more Flamethrower or Solarbeam I guess.


Shandera

Is a massive troll. It gets us a very quick, very powerful, special attacker to come in, kill some stuff, and then gtfo. The moveset choice is identical to Ninetales', but with Shadow Ball as a second STAB. The EVs outspeed a Timid Starmie iirc.


Exeggutor

Is a godly tank. CM + Max Def + Max HP makes it hard enough to kill, but factor in Rest + instant Lum regeneration and you have an absolute monster. Two moveslots doesn't give us very much room for attacking so we just went for pseudo-mixed Double STAB.


Is that what you wanted?
