Skarmory@Leftovers
Impish
Keen Eye
252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 SpD
Spikes / Stealth Rock
Whirlwind
Roost
Stealth Rock
Lead with team support, roost for surviving longer and mid game use. Then whirlwinds to scout the opposing team and damage them through spikes and stealth rock. Skarm can then switch out and use whirlwind again after toxic spikes from tentacruel.

Swampert@damp rock
torrent
relaxed
240hp/44spatk/104spdef/60def
rain dance
surf
ice beam
earthquake
Swampert is sent out after skarmory to set up rain dance. Then switches to kingdra, or zapdos depending on who swampert is facing. It can also stay in and fight if necessary. The evs give it bulk and a decent amount of power to hurt the opponent.

kingdra@lum berry
swift swim
adamant
4hp/252atk/252spe
brine
dragon dance
outrage
rain dance
Straight forward physical sweeper. Abuses rain and sets up ddance. Brine is prefered over waterfall because stealth rock and spikes should get most pokemon close to perfect health for brine to have max power with stab. The evs are obvious max speed and attack.

zapdos@leftovers
pressure
calm
252spatk/200spe/56hp
heat wave
thunder
ancient power
roost
Bulky special sweeper, basically uses thunder and roost to destroy the opponent. Heat wave is for coverage, and ancient power kills enemy dragons, and may boost stats. The evs give it power and speed, the nature and hp evs give it bulk, so it can sweep longer. Zapdos also stops any opposing water types from abusing the rain.

tentacruel@damp rock
clear body
sassy
252hp/56def/200spdef
toxic spikes
rain dance
rapid spin
hydro pump
Provides rapid spin, toxic spikes, and rain dance. Pretty simple. The bulk allows it to switch in and out as many times as needed, and hpump is for taunt, and will heavily damage any pokemon excluding blissey, or bulky waters.

ludicolo@leftovers
rain dish
modest
66hp/228spatk/216spe
rain dance
leech seed
surf
energy ball
End game sweeper. Abuses stab moves, and picks off the opponents weakened pokemon. It maintains high health with ability, leftovers, and leech seed. Then Ludicolo wins the game.( If the opponent gets this far:D)

When it says descrptions of pokes it means each as an individual, not all of them as a whole. You might want to edit before a mod comes and closes the thread

You say Skarm will outspeed some threats and Taunt them to stop Rocks being set up, but there are some pokes he'll never outrun, like Azelf and Aerodactyl. They are much faster and will Taunt you first, rendering your Skarmory useless and be forced to switch out. My advice is to just stick to the standard set as Skarmory even with 100 speed evs won't be outrunning most common leads.

Ohh ... I did not know ... Milotic but replaced by a more appropriate and Metagross Starmer Donphan to be able to last longer and do more damage while continuing to develop stealth rocks .. Dragonite and am using a mixed attacker, I forgot to set the nature and spread of EV

this is a great team
maybe a lum berry instead of the persim berry will be more helpful

Thank you. This team has never lost so far. The lum berry would be better. I will change that immediately. I can't seem to find any other problems. If anyone else sees a problem please post it.
