Well, thanks DC.
Figured out my team (sorta)
SubSeed Physical Serperior, Toxicroak, Scarf Darmanitan, Agility Ampharos, HM (Fly+Surf) Hydreigon and then one last pokemon. In 4th gym right now, challenging the third Trainer.
Current Team: Darumaka, Purrloin, HH Mincinno, Magnemite, Flaaffy and Servine, all about level 20-25 expect level 14 purrloin.
Skam, to be honest, that team has some devastating flaws.
In other news, I may be posting my Hail team in a few days. Stay tuned!
Seriously you should change your name to Spamory7. I barely got 10 posts while you're everywhere on this thread. Not that it matters since you keep this board alive ; )
Ex, I don't wanna be a gymleader so make me a restaurant holder named Col who only has one strong badass Blaziken named Hotwing. Give'm darkbrown to almost black hair and green eyes, and please for the love of god, no fat guy. How's that for character building?
I can do my war battle tomorrow btw
Ciel, i just made that team off the top of my head, and im gonna actually try it out now.
EDIT: They forfeited, but i can see some flaws, like fire. So i made this:
HTML Code:Breloom (M) @ Toxic Orb Trait: Poison Heal EVs: 236 HP / 212 Def / 60 Spd Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Spore - Bulk Up - Seed Bomb - Drain Punch Rotom-W @ Choice Scarf Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Volt Switch - Hydro Pump - Hidden Power [Ice] - Trick Landorus-T (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Intimidate EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - U-turn - Stone Edge - Earthquake - Brick Break Jirachi @ Leftovers Trait: Serene Grace EVs: 252 HP / 224 SDef / 32 Spd Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Iron Head - Fire Punch - Wish - Protect Staraptor (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Intimidate EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) - Brave Bird - Close Combat - Return - U-turn Latios (M) @ Life Orb Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Draco Meteor - Surf - Hidden Power [Fire] - Psyshock

Jeez Spam, I'm not the best rater there is but that scolipide is going to lose you your battles.
First of all, Scolipide on its own sucks in OU so to make it work you'll need decent support. The only role I would ever give to Scolipede is that of a fast lead with (Toxic) Spike set up. See, you need to use pokemon in a way where they stand out compared to other pokemon, Scolipede doesn't stand out in any way but it can use (Toxic) Spikes, and there are limited pokes who even CAN use (Toxic) Spikes so use it to your advantage.
Next to that DON'T use special attacks on a pokemon who has: a crappy special attack stat, a negative nature on special attack and no single EV investment in the special attack stat. So get rid of venoshock, it doesn't matter even how appealing its effect is.
Scolipede won't last long in this metagame, so give it a focus sash since it will be a spike lead. Back it up with teammates who cause a lot of switches and you'll have a better team already.
As for Scolipede itsself, you could use alternatives like: Accelgor, Roserade, Tentacruel (and you got rapid spin as well yay) or even froslass.
And last but not least, just an overall tip that you should always use IMO: some teams have leads, so does yours, so you shouldn't put it in front of your team.
You see, with these new mechanics, your opponent can see who you have first, Scolipede is best used as a lead so put him anywhere in the midsection of your team.
This way you make your opponent guess what you use as a lead since they won't know for sure. Well, bad battlers won't know for sure that is. What I'm saying is this: don't give away your starting poke in the team preview since the first match up could be decisive in ANY fight. Just let'm guess ; )
EDIT: don't forget to switch your Scolipede in front when you're using team preview ofc. I'm just saying in case you didn't know what I meant by ^
And for the record, I'm not trying to 'attack' you and I don't want to be rude, I just want to help you get better at it and that begins at the basics of team building/team preview.

Yes I do, you ninja'd me. But it doesn't matter nonetheless, your Scolipede was still a creation of yours, and it wasn't viable at all so I hope you've learned something from my post : )
Thanks KFT for the contribution. Hope you get that battle finished tomorrow (: And guys, I don't really mind the posts, but please think about the quality of the post. If 1.) It could be said as a post in a chat, or 2.) It is not on topic, then you either need to add a section in your post saying something clan related but also not random, or you can hold said post in until a number of people post again. I enjoy the activity, but I don't want a mod to look at our thread and see random topics here. Keep in mind that this is a clan, where we talk about our likes and dislikes in Pokemon, help each other get better at battling, and make friends! We have a xat for random conversations
Now, if you haven't joined our forum yet, please do so. Future activities will be posted there for organization and for an easy access, rather than going through pages of the clan to find announcements. Please make your name very very very similar or even the same as your Serebii name. If you don't want to do that, then please notify me through a visitor message or a private message in Serebii about your chosen username. Thank you, and I'll be ending this huge wall of text with our motto:
"Aut Vincere Aut Mori! To conquer or to die!"
My sister is coming over from Venice to visit.
