The only real competitive battling I've done is with my friends. I found Netbattle, and realized that all of us were really crappy. This is my team. I know its abhorable, but I'm hoping for a fix. No cursing please, brutally honest is fine. (I've never mastered natures/ EV's either)

HP grass>HP Ice for Zappy. Grass is for swampert and pals.

Besides a thunderbolt does good enough damage for salamence etc. HP ice isn't as good as HP grass IMO.

Sceptile wants HP fire OR HP ice but I prefer fire for skarm/steels that switch in and what not. You may want to consider petaya berry as well.

Either use that or you can use the staller set...
Sceptile (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Overgrow
EVs: 6 HP / 252 Spd / 252 SAtk
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Hidden Power [Fire]/HP Ice
- Leaf Blade
- Leech Seed
- Substitute

The leech seed version works well and better than the endeavour set IMO.

Dragonite (M) @ Lum Berry/Leftovers
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 30 HP / 80 Atk / 180 Spd / 220 SAtk
Rash / Mild Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Focus Punch
- Ice Beam
- Substitute
- Thunderbolt

Boltbeamer.

Changed most everything. But on Dragonite, I kind of like Outrage, so I'll go with whatever works best. Thanks.

PS: I would like to get something besides a poliwrath. I've been experimenting with different water types, but I haven't found a good one. I'm thinking Milotic, but it has too many counters, right?

File-->export to text for easier readings. Milotic is a great pokemon. High hp, special attack, and special defense along with bold for increased defense. Marvel scale, recover. it is stopped by pokes like suicune but it cant do anything to milotic. It counters pokes like salamence, milotic does.

Dragonite needs Sub for the set to work best. Outrage sucks. If you wanted to use something like that, then use Dragon Claw and Flamethrower>BoltBeam. Dragon Claw only has 10 less base power than Outrage with none of its disadvantages.

Okay. *changes* Thanks. BTW, I'm going now to make it easier to read.

EDIT: I'm MewSP on NB as well.

nuetral natures are pointless

DON'T USE NETBATTLES SET EV SYSTEM (WEAKNESSES/STRENGTHS) THEY GIVE YOU STUPID AND RETARDED EV SPREADS

Zapdos @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 106 HP / 74 Atk / 74 Def / 74 Spd / 108 SAtk / 74 SDef
Hardy Nature (Neutral)
- Drill Peck
- Hidden Power [Grass]
- Thunder Wave
- Thunderbolt
Drill Peck Zapdos kinda fell off after GSC. Doesn't do much to Blissey (like 20% IIRC) and Celebi is kinda meh. Go with Substitute over Drill Peck. Also, HP Ice > HP Grass. HP Grass might be for "Swampert and friends," but HP Ice is for Salamence, Dragonite, Celebi, Venusaur, Sceptile, Flygon, Exeggutor, etc. Only use HP Grass if you find your team to have a really huge Swampert weakness.

Milotic (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Marvel Scale
EVs: 85 HP / 85 Atk / 85 Def / 85 Spd / 85 SAtk / 85 SDef
Hardy Nature (Neutral)
- Confuse Ray
- Ice Beam
- Recover
- Surf
Hypnosis > Confuse Ray

Sceptile (M) @ Petaya Berry
Trait: Overgrow
EVs: 70 HP / 32 Atk / 52 Def / 220 Spd / 79 SAtk / 57 SDef
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Leaf Blade
- Leech Seed
- Substitute
I actually like HP Fire, for Metagross. I don't know that anyone else uses it, though. If using Petaya Berry, put Endeavor over Leech Seed. Otherwise, just switch to Lefties.

Dragonite (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 38 HP / 120 Atk / 38 Def / 238 Spd / 38 SAtk / 38 SDef
Hardy Nature (Neutral)
- Focus Punch
- Ice Beam
- Substitute
- Thunderbolt
Meh.

Houndoom (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 93 HP / 64 Atk / 132 Def / 65 Spd / 92 SAtk / 64 SDef
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Beat Up
- Crunch
- Flamethrower
- Roar
HP Grass > FT

Metagross @ Choice Band
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: 104 HP / 71 Atk / 70 Def / 96 Spd / 71 SAtk / 98 SDef
Hardy Nature (Neutral)
- Earthquake
- Explosion
- Meteor Mash
- Rock Slide
[b]I like Sludge Bomb or Shadow Ball (preferably Sludge Bomb) over Rock Slide.
Overall, your team has crappy EV's. Work on that.
