Hey guys, I'm kinda new to the metagaming stuff, so I want some opinion on the team I'm building right now.

Lead:
Skarmory leftovers
Impish, keen eye
252 HP 252 def 4 Sp.D
drill peck
stealth rock
roost
whirlwind

classic skarmory lead. Set up stealth rocks and then whirlwind for some starting damage and to piss off my oponnent. Roost to heal and drill peck to lay some extra damage on switching pokemon.

Vaporeon leftovers
calm, water absorb
252 hp 252 def 4 SpD
wish
protect
surf
ice beam

This Vaporeon in meant to be an all-around wall who can safely pass on wish. With protect, it can also heal itself. Surf is a powerful move with STAB and great coverage, and ice beam is just to keep those annoyng dragons away.

Forretress leftovers
impish, sturdy
252hp 4 def 252 SpD
spikes
toxic spikes
payback
rapid spin

The Forretress is the spiker/toxic spiker/rapid spinner. It can be switched in early in the game to set up its entry hazards and can also be switched in late to clear the path for the sweepers with Rapid Spin.

The goal for these 3 pokemon is to weaken the opposing team, set up entry hazards and badly poisons, so the sweepers can come in and finish it off.

Physycal Sweeper:

Gyarados Life orb
Jolly, intimidate
252 att 4 def 252 speed
Dragon Dance
waterfall
stone edge
earthquake

This Gyarados is meant to do what it was born to: destroy. After 2 dragon dances, there is no one that can outspeed him, and it will crush everything that its already weakened. Waterfall is a reliable STAB move, stone edge deals with flying-electric types (zapdos) and earthquake counters any other electric pokemon that kicks in.

Special Sweeper:

gengar life orb
timid, levitate
4 def, 252 SpA, 252 Speed
shadow ball
thunderbolt
focus blast
explosion

Gengar does what Gyarados cannot: deals with porygon2, water types and any ghost type that is still alive. AND it explodes after its hit. pretty simple

I'm not sure about my last pokemon but as a last resort, Breloom fits the role quite fine

Breloom toxic orb
adamant, poison heal
12 hp 252 att 244 speed
substitute
focus punch
spore
seed bomb

As a late game sweeper, Breloom's role it to strike mindlessly until everyone is down. Substitute is to prevent any 1HKO, and spore is to attack without fear. Focus Punch strikes heavily, and seed bomb deals damage to everything that it's immune or resistant to fighting.

As this is my first team, I'd really appreciate any comments and suggestions that you guys might have. Thank you for reading! http://www.serebiiforums.com/images/smilies2/004.gif
