    Calm | Natural Cure
    252 HP | 252 SpD | 4 Def
    - Sleep Powder
    - Spikes
    - Giga Drain
    - Sludge Bomb

    Blastoise@ Leftovers
    Bold | Torrent
    252 HP | 252 Def | 4 SpD
    - Scald
    - Rapid Spin
    - Focus Blast
    - Roar

    Umbreon@ Leftovers
    Impish | Synchronise
    252 HP | 252 Def | 4 SpD
    - Wish
    - Heal Bell
    - Payback
    - Protect

    Rhyperior@ Leftovers
    Adamant | Solid Rock
    252 Atk | 160 HP | 96 Spe

    And that's it!

    ^You should run Fire Punch in the last slot over another dragon move, otherwise Bronzong walls it indefinitely.

    There aren't many ice types in UU. Froslass can be taken out with a Fire Blast from Chandelure. I tested my team out on PO (Pokemon Online) and it said Roserade couldn't go on wifi UU. So my team managed to beat a semi OU team consisting of Blissey, Smeargle, Salamence, Chandelure, Forretress and something else. I got a Timd Chandelure first time in breeding, and I'm going to change the item to Air Balloon as Ground types are going to get a suprose when their move fails and a STAB Fire Blast hits them. WoW can then be changed to Energy Ball.

    And I can't get Fire Punch on Flygon.

    To be honest and blunt, no. Firstly, having Hyper Beam on any of your pokemon is a bad idea because of the recharge. Also, using four moves of the same type on one pokemon is also bad.

    No. Just, no. I wouldn't recommend ANY of this. AT ALL. But you seem to not know anything about natures, evs, ivs; etc, so I'll dumb it down.

    Typhlosion's moves: Eruption, , Fire blast, Focus Blast, Hidden Power. Give it choice scarf.

    Umbreon's moves: Moonlight, Curse, Baton Pass, Payback. Give it leftovers.

    Ampharos' moves: Heal Bell/Signal Beam, Discharge, Hidden Power, Focus Blast. If you give it signal beam then give it choice specs; give it leftovers if you choose heal bell.

    Togekiss' moves: Air Slash, Thunder Wave, Roost, Aura Sphere/Nasty Plot. Give it leftovers.

    Bellossom's moves: Sunny Day, Solar Beam, Sludge Bomb, Giga Drain. Giga Drain should only be used if you're about to die, or sun isn't up. It will boost Bellossom's super poor speed and make Typhlosions attacks do much more. Give it Life Orb.

    Milotic Moves: Surf, Recover, Toxic, Ice Beam. Give it leftovers.

    Okay, so I'm makning an OU team based off of Gengar (because I can), and after getting four pokemon, I'm absolutely stumped.

    Gengar (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Shadow Ball
    - Giga Drain
    - Thunder/bolt
    - Focus Blast

    Yep, this is what I based my team off of. I decided to break the mold of Specs or Disable, and when I saw this dude learned Giga Drain, I became inspired to do this.

    Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP / 232 Def / 24 Spd
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Roost
    - Stealth Rock
    - Whirlwind
    - Drill Peck

    Skarmory is Skarmory. He synergises decently with Gengar, and with this copy-and-pasted-from-Smogon set, he does... what he always does.

    Latias (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Recover
    - Calm Mind
    - Hidden Power [Fire]

    Calm Mind Latias, woohooo.

    Scrafty (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Crunch
    - Dragon Dance
    - Drain Punch
    - Ice Punch

    This is an extremely awesome Scrafty set, I love how he can sweep plenty even with only one Dragon Dance.

    So, yeah, I need something to fill the last two slots, and I have this nagging feeling in the back of my head that is telling me that the existing members of my team could be better :/

    Thank you very much! When I do teams, I choose pokemon based on synergy, so I was extremely confused after those first 4 :/

    I'm definitely going to try this out.

    Ok Here is my team so far.

    That is my team so far. I really want to have a Rapid Spinner and Stealth Rock support. I might switch Ferrothorn to Forretress because they are very similar. If I don't use Forretress, I would probably want someone like Donphan, Starmie, or Tentacruel.

    First, I would drop Chandelure and use Heatran as a replacement. It fits nicely with the team typing-wise, provide you with a better check against Sun, and Stealth Rock Support.

    As a team member, I would choose Xatu. While it isn't bulky, Xatu patches up two things that your team is vulnerable to: Ground and Fighting (factoring in the change from Chandelure to Heatran). If you are willing to use Xatu as your primary anti-hazards, go ahead.

    I need help making an OU team. It's going to be focused around Kyurem. This will be OU, and I'd rather not do a Hail team if possible. Kyurems' set:


    Kyurem@ Leftovers
    Timid | Pressure
    56 HP | 216 Spe | 236 SpA
    ~Ice Beam
    ~Draco Meteor
    ~Substitute
    ~Focus Blast
    Sub Kyurem. With the EVs, it can Pressure stall Blissey and Chansey, especially with hazards up. Ice Beam and Draco Meteor for STAB (or Dragon Pulse), and Focus Blast for Steel coverage.

    It is a good Pokemon, but what I really need is a hazards Pokemon, and a spinner as Kyurem hates hazards.

    First, I would change Draco Meteor for Dragon Pulse fore the reason that the Special Attack drop is something that will for you to switch, defeating the purpose of this set.

    So now this set is walled by Bulky waters and Jirachi. Chansey and Blissey still have to be addressed because Pressure stalling Blissey also eats away your PP in the process. In this case, I would suggest Bulk Up Breloom temporarily. After a Bulk Up, he can KO most of the Bulky waters in OU and heavily dent Jirachi, while also having the extra bonus of being immune to paralysis.

    If you're looking for something with a bit more defensive synergy, the Magnezone would function decently. Although this leaves you even more helpless against the pink blobs, it allows you to perfectly kill a lot of the defensive steels that resist Kyurem's STABs. Furthermore, it can KO some bulky waters with STAB Thunderbolt.

    For a Rapid Spinner, I would suggest Tentacruel. Toxic Spikes allows you to better deal with Chansey/Blissey and ease Pressure Stalling, while Rapid Spin removes the very hazards Kyurem doesn't like.
