Serperior is beaten by steel types; replace Dragon Tail with Leech Seed. That way you can recover health, and the other person doesn't get a free hit. (I'm assuming this is s-crmt)

Lucario is an odd choice for a mixed sweeper, his/her offensive stats aren't very destructive. Stick to one. Fight+Dark/Ghost hits everything for at least neutral, so the last slot can be used for priority or whatever you need for coverage.

]Modest | Steadfast
• Nasty Plot
• Aura Sphere
• Dark Pulse/Shadow Ball
• Vacuum Wave / filler

I'd give Haxorus Outrage/Dual Chop > Dragon Claw, one for power, and the other for Subs. You'd be faster than most subbed pokemon, so Outrage is a little better. It's good to be able to ensure a KO.

Zekrom is a good mix sweeper for for his 150/120 offensive stats. Take advantage.

Good luck.

110 base attack and 115 base SpAtk isnt destructive? I dont doubt that Luke makes a great mixed Sweeper.
especially after a SD or a Nasty Plot, both of which it can learn.

But I think you should stick Extremespeed on him, to get an amazing priority, along with that nice fighting-ghost combo.

I dont think i have to mention the triple ice weakness,

@peacemaker
Dragontail phazes out steel types so you dont have to deal with them... thats what dragon tail is for.
and I disagree with volt switch, but i can see your logic there

For Reshiram you literally do not need any moves apart from your STABs. Shadow Ball is outpowered by Blue Flare and I think Focus Blast isn't worth that horrible accuracy when you hit every Pokemon in the game unresisted. Turboblaze laughs at you Heatran.

Reshiram@Life Orb/Choice Specs
Timid
-Blue Flare
-Draco Meteor
-Fusion Flare
-Dragon Pulse

Fusion Flare and Dragon Pulse is when you want accurate attacks for weakened opponents. Blue Flare and Draco Meteor is when you want destruction to rain from the heavens.

so 110/115 (only 5 points difference) isn't good for Mixed set, yet 150/120 (30 points difference) is good for Mixed? :p

that.

I completely forgot it learns Extremespeed lol.

Not to mention the triple dragon weak and the heavy quadruple ground weak :p

Yep. It's okay if it is gets stopped by Steels, Dragon Tail forces them to switch out anyway, or if there are still a few remaining Pokemon, you can just switch.

I forgot Turboblaze even exist lol. Yeah, use aurawarrior's Reshiram set instead.

A suggestion for Lucario@Leftovers:
Bulk Up
Extreme Speed
Earthquake
Force Palm/Close Combat/Aura Sphere

Setting up is always important-and with fire pokemon being your only real special threat,Earthquake is always a useful option.Otherwise,you'll be fearing Earthquake yourself and other powerful ground and fighting moves.Which-with some exceptions-are physical threats only.So setting up with bulk up might be a more reassuring plan than crossing your fingers on the first turn if using Sword Dance.Other advantages include further fortification of your other 10 resistances and the fact that priority moves-bar Vaccum Wave- will have difficulty picking you off when on low HP.
Extreme Speed is a very powerful form of priority that should not be ignored after setting up-base 80 is nothing to scoff at.
Force Palm is downgraded often,but after set up,you will be dealing some respectable damage with the 30% opportunity to paralyse your opponent,aiding leftovers recovery,presenting more set-up opportunities either for yourself or another teammate-a paralysed Garchomp can be outsped and KO'd more easily.
Au contraire-Close Combat kills things.Your defences suffer however.
Aura Sphere is a useful method of countering pokemon with an inferior sp.def stat.

Serperior already sets up in a similar way-both pokemon are capable of performing Calm Mind sets as well,but it's entirely your choice:I'm not surprised that the team's doing well online if you have both Box legendaries though!
It's a great team,as always :)

I guess I expressed myself a little oddly: I meant that it'd be better to go with either an SD or NP set to fully capitalize on one strength, Lucario doesn't really have any big-shot attacks to justify mixing besides HJK, Focus Blast and CC, all of which can/will cripple Lucario, ending its sweep. Just being a little conservative :/

@peacemaker

Fair enough, but Leech Seed (if he's playing s-crmt) can do the same thing, and without decreased priority.



so 110/115 (only 5 points difference) isn't good for Mixed set, yet 150/120 (30 points difference) is good for Mixed? :p
I don't see your point.
The difference between offensive stats doesn't necessarily make a mixed sweeper good or bad, as long as they can deal devastating damage from both sides. What makes Zekrom a "better suited" mixed sweeper is that he has superior instant power, and he lacks a reliable boosting move, making it his only option. Furthermore, access to devastating moves amend the apparent weakness in a "low" special attack. Not to say that Lucario is bad, I'm just saying Zekrom would do a better job in most cases, considering both of them rely mostly on neutral coverage in this case.

Good point actually
Zekrom is not really a "mixed" sweeper, but he can deal mass damage with Draco Meteor, and completely focus on physical and ignore the after effects
isn't that great?? (btw most psuedo-legendaries can do that too)
