    Default Battle Tower / Frontier Team

    I thought I'd made a solid team but I've having trouble with Infernape, Garchomp, and Togekiss. Also, I don't have much coverage against Water-types. My Pokemon don't have all perfect IVs so I'm noting the relevant ones.

    Scizor (Adamant) @Life Orb
    Technician
    IVs: HP 31, AT 30, DF 31, SD 30, SP 31
    EVs: HP 172, AT 96, DF 12, SD 176, SP 52
    -Bullet Punch
    -Pursuit
    -Brick Break
    -Roost
    No complaints here. I know U-Turn is standard but the times I've needed Brick Break FAR outweigh the times I wished I had U-Turn.

    Empoleon (Calm) @Leftovers
    Torrent
    IVs: HP 28, DF 31, SA 31, SD 31, SP 31
    EVs: HP 248, DF 156, SD 92, SP 12
    -Surf
    -Ice Beam
    -Grass Knot
    -Yawn
    I really didn't think things through putting this on the same team as Scizor. I'm wondering if I should switch to Kingdra or Starmie.

    Gliscor (Impish) @Expert Belt
    Sand Stream
    IVs: HP 18, AT 30, DF 31, SD 31, SP 31
    EVs: HP 248, DF 36, SD 4, SP 200
    -Earthquake
    -Stone Edge
    -Ice Fang
    -Roost
    Picked this to cover Empoleon's weaknesses. I know the HP is low but before I breed a new one I need to decide if I want to stay defensive or go offensive.

    The EVs were way too spread out. X-scissor or U-turn may be a better choice over Pursuit for STAB and U-turn if you need to get out quickly, but Pursuit is a good choice too

    I don't have much experience with him (mainly because I don't like him), but I think this is good

    Swords Dance, could be nice choice too, to boost his great Attack, and Yache Berry is there so Ice attacks don't OHKO you.

    PS: Are these hacked? Because the IVs are outrageous, if you got these of the GTS, they are most likely hacked, but if you bred them, yourself, and tell me you didn't hack them I'll believe you

    Thanks for the suggestions. I did breed them all myself. I'm too uptight to use anything that I didn't watch hatch. You're looking at months of chain breeding and soft resetting.

    Replace Empoleon with Kingdra, I'd say.

    Gliscor looks good.
