Hey guys, I'm kinda new to the metagaming stuff, so I want some opinion on the team I'm building right now.
Impish, keen eye
252 HP 252 def 4 Sp.D
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.
calm, water absorb
252 hp 252 def 4 SpD
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.
252hp 4 def 252 SpD
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.
Gyarados Life orb
252 att 4 def 252 speed
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.
gengar life orb
4 def, 252 SpA, 252 Speed
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
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
