    Default Rate my UU Team

    This is pretty much my first competitive battling team, so I'm not sure if its that good. I figured I would ask for some opinions here before trying it in to many online battles, in case its really bad xD
    Anyway, I'm willing to change anything, so all suggestions are helpful. Also, I use Slowking in this team, which isn't considered UU, but I'm pretty sure its allowed in UU (let me know if it isn't), and i might end up changing it anyway.

    seems like a nice team to me (im no expert) i would suggest fitting rapid spin in there on one of them.

    You get points for using sableye. One of my favorite UU pokemon.

    You could try putting protect on slowking, that way he can make more toxic more efective and heal your HP with leftovers. Rain dance seems out of place in this team, you don have any rain abusser(besides Kindra), your slowking doesn't have a water attack and that would make Chandelure's fire attack weaker. Also, using rain, them dragon dance would make you lose to turns to set up your Kingdra. It would be better to put a coverage move on rain dance place.
    Good team btw.

    Chandelure doesn't fit in a rain team for obvious reasons. Either change Kingdra to a DDdra or remove Chandelure.
    In order to understand my train of thoughts,
    you'll have to put yourself in my position. You can't expect me to think like you because my life ain't like yours; You know what I'm sayin?

    Pulling of a dragon dance as well as getting rain up while not getting statused or taking enough damage to get into the KO range of priority moves is nearly impossible. Sp attacking or even specs kingdra (hydro pump and draco meteor) can hit nearly as hard without having to ddance. Flash fire chandelure can be considered as a superior option with teammates such as cobalion and virizion luring in fire type moves, gaining a boost to pierce through opponent's special wall. Leftovers on cobalion and sableye act as more reliable means of recovery. Scald on slowking instead of drain punch can keep physical attackers at bay and get burns wherever possible. This team has potential to become a full rain team by replacing chandelure with raikou although it's highly optional. Virizon is one of the best sweepers in the tier and cobalion-slowking-sableye make a good defensive core along with spin blocking. Good job on thinking that out.

    Nice suggestion, but this thread is from January.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^
