This is my first time making a team, and i wanted to do something a little different.
I'm not really to concerned about the natures and EV's or the items.
And I don't have the games yet, so I'm just planning ahead. So here they are...

Samurott
Nature: Timid
Ability: Torrent
-Surf
-Ice Beam
-Air Slash
-Grass Knot

Lilligant
Nature: Modest
Ability: Own Tempo
-Sleep Powder
-Quiver Dance
-Petal Dance
-Leech Seed

Archeops
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Defeatist
-Rock Slide
-Earthquake
-Dragon Claw/ U-turn
-Fly

Excadrill
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Sand Rush
-Earthquake
-Rock Slide
-Swords Dance/Aerial Ace/ Brick Break
-X-Scissor

Now I have to make some choices…

Zebstrika
Nature: Modest
Ability: Lightning Rod
-Wild Charge
-Nitro Charge
-Thunder Wave
-Return
-or-
Stoutland
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Intimidate
-Return
-Wild Charge
-Earthquake/ Ice Fang
-Crunch

Chandelure
Nature: Modest
Ability: Flame Body
-Flamethrower
-Shadow Ball
-Energy Ball
-Calm Mind/ Psychic
-or-
Zoroark
Nature: Timid
Ability: Illusion
-Focus blast
-Nasty Plot
-Flamethrower
-Night daze

Right now I'm leaning towards Zoroark and Stoutland.

Tell me what you think about type coverages, and weaknesses.
And if you have any other pokemon in mind that might compliment this team well, feel free to suggest them.

IIRC, Stoutland can't learn Earthquake, so go with Ice Fang.

Leech Seed over Giga Drain on Lilligant because Leech Seed allows your whole team to be supported if Lilligant goes down, as well as continual recovery while sweeping.

Calm Mind over Psychic on Chandelure.

You could probably go with Return or X-Scissor/Megahorn over Air Slash as Air Slash is an egg move and:
-Return gives you Normal+Water coverage
-X-Scissor and Megahorn are powerful and give you some more coverage

Sorry my rates are all over the place, but nice team you have here. As for which Pokemon to use in your last few slots, it's all up to you :P

Actually Air Slash works on a Special set.

imo Jolly>Adamant on Exca. Adamants 10% boost is redundant alongside SD's 100% boost

thanks, thats what i was thinkng with leech seed too.
And i think i might bring in mega horn, just to catch special walls off gaurd.

and the reason i put in psychic and left Exadrill adamant is cause I don't really use stat boosting moves that much in-game, so i was thinking i could just bring in moves for better coverage.
but maybe i should start?

And i'm like 90% sure I'm gonna go with stoutland, now i just need to choose between the last 2 :/

Personally, I would go with Chandelure. It's unique as a Ghost-Fire type, and can be used for multiple things. I like to use it as a torture device.

Chandelure

Ability: Flash Fire/Flame Body

EVs: HP 4 / SpA 252 / Spd 252

- Will-O-Wisp / Flamethrower / Overheat
- Toxic
- Hex
- Shadow Ball / Flamethrower / Overheat

Allow me to explain. If you happen to catch a Litwick with Flash Fire, Use Will-O-Wisp, which is used to burn the opponent. If you catch a Litwick with Flame Body, you don't have to have Will-O-Wisp, but you can. I would use Flamethrower or Overheat. Toxic is a must either way, and so is Hex. Hex does tons of damage to Pokemon with Status conditions, which makes it the key move in the set. The last move is for a reliable power move. Use Shadow Ball if you're running Flamethrower or Overheat, or, if you're running Will-O-Wisp, use Flamethrower or Overheat.

Hmmm... i like that idea haha…

thanks for the suggestions!

Really nice, Stoutland, not Zebstrika, who doesn't love doggies? It would be the best team you can have in the beginning.
