I'm preparing a team of Pokemon to compete in the Spring VGC Regionals. This is what I have come up with so far. I think it's an okay VGC team, I've tested it on Pokemon Online, too! But I'm here to have you guys judge me and give me some nice ideas.



Garchomp @ Life Orb
Ability: Sand Veil
EV's: 252 Atk/252 Spd/4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Substitute

Garchomp is a good attacker all around, especially in a Sandstorm. But what is special about Garchomp is that it doesn't need a Sandstorm to thrive like other Pokemon.



Metagross @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Clear Body
EV's: 252 Atk/252 Spd/4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Meteor Mash
- Rock Slide
- Zen Headbutt
- Trick

Metagross is an odd, yet great addition to the team because of his defenses and offensives. It can 2HKO most Pokes with Meteor Mash which is not bad. Trick is always there to switch out the Scarf for something better as well as stop the opponent in their tracks if done the right way.



Thundurus @ Electric Gem
Ability: Prankster
EV's: 128 HP/252 Sp Atk/128 Spd
Modest Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power (Ice)
- Grass Knot
- Thunder Wave

Thundurus is great for slowing down other team members of the opponent. Thunderbolt + the Electric Gem pwns almost every Pokemon that isn't too high in special defense. Grass Knot is for Ground types and Rock Types that are difficult for a Thundurus to take down. Of course, Hidden Power Ice is for Dragon types, Thundurus, and Landorus.



Tyranitar @ Chople Berry
Ability: Sand Stream
EV's: 252 Atk/124 Spd/124 Def/4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Superpower
- Protect
- Crunch
- Rock Slide

Tyranitar is mainly for bringing up Sandstorm. Its moveset is just another Tyrantiar example and is really nothing out of the ordinary.



Gastrodon @ Leftovers
Ability: Storm Drain
EV's: 252 Sp Atk/124 Spd/124 HP/8 Sp Def
Modest Nature
- Muddy Water
- Earth Power
- Icy Wind
- Hidden Power (Electric)

Gastrodon is to protect against rain teams. It is a dangerous Pokemon if used correctly. Hidden Power Electric is definitely good against Politoad and other Water Types. Icy Wind lowers the speed of other Pokemon and is very effective on Dragon Types.



Exeggutor @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Harvest
EV's: 124 HP/252 Sp Atk/124 Sp Def
Calm Nature
- Leaf Storm
- Psyshock
- Protect
- Power Swap

Exeggutor + Harvest is one of the best combos out there when it comes to lower tier Pokemon. Leaf Storm and Power Swap also lowers the other Pokemon's Sp. Atk. so I can have a bit of defense on my side. Psyshock OHKO's Hitmontops and most Fighting types in general. Protect is for if I am still below Sitrus Berry's recovery section of the HP bar so I can restore more HP easily.
