    Default Fixing What Isn't Broken: My Battle Tower Magnum Opus

    So, my last team worked very well. Now, I'm going to make it even better.

    Crux (Uxie) @ Choice Scarf
    Bold Nature
    EVs: 252 Hp / 72 Def / 184 Sp Def
    -Stealth Rock
    -Thunder Wave

    I'm excited to use this. He used to be Dual Screen Azelf, but I think this set could work even better. Tricks Scarf onto the opponent's lead, and proceeds to use Thunder Wave to once again have speed advantage. Then, Stealth Rock for Focus Sashers, and finally Memento to offensively cripple the lead.
    EVs round out his defenses. Modest Jolteon can't 2HKO him with Shadow Ball. However, Adamant Weavile does 2HKO him with Night Slash, but Scizor resists Night Slash like a boss, making setup still easy.

    Overkill (Scizor) @ Iron Plate
    Adamant Nature
    EVs: 176 HP / 252 Atk / 80 Sp Def
    -Bullet Punch
    -Swords Dance

    Perfect. Uxie draws out attacks that Scizor resists, and while the opponent is sufficiently crippled in every sense, Scizor sets up and wins. Sub protects me from Status and Critical Hax. And OHKO, I believe? Roost helps shrug off any damage sustained. I used to have Aerial Ace, but I realized that if the opponent was locked into Double Team, I may as well just Bullet Punch until I hit.
    Iron Plate because Life Orb takes too much health away combined with Sub. Max attack EVs allows me to 2HKO the Bold Suicune variant most of the time.

    Nereus (Suicune) @ Chesto Berry
    Bold Nature
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Sp Atk
    -Calm Mind
    -Toxic/Ice Beam

    His purpose is to use Pressure and his incredible defenses to PP Stall out anything locked in a Fire move that would prevent Scizor from setting up. The EVs provide for max Physical Defense, while Calm Mind will take care of Special problems. Once the enemy is forced to Struggle, Scizor can set up and win.

    Personally, I'm somewhat leaning towards that second Suicune.
    There. He PP Stalls out Fire attacks like it's his job. Which it is. Then Scizor sets up, and bam, I Bullet Punch my way to victory. After a single Calm Mind, his Special Defense is on par with his Defense.

    Have fun rating!

    This signature is horrendously outdated.
