    Pidgeot can use Return over one of the Flying move.

    Luxray
    Adamant Nature
    ~Wild Charge
    ~Ice Fang
    ~Fire Fang
    ~Crunch


    Aqua Tail instead of Double-Edge on Armaldo.


    Bisharp
    Adamant Nature
    ~Brick Break
    ~Night Slash
    ~Iron Head
    ~Swords Dance

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    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 ^_^

    Ice Beam > Blizzard on Gastrodon for more reliability. You can run a fully Special set of Surf / Earth Power / Ice Beam / Recover; Stone Edge provides unnecessary coverage on your set, whereas Recover would be useful for healing.


    I'm not too sure on Exeggutor's place in your team though; it seems out of place. It'll set up Sun for eight turns, but if it faints, none of your Pokemon will benefit:
    - although Heat Wave will be stronger on Pidgeot, Hurricane will drop to 50% accuracy
    - Fire moves will be stronger, thus reducing Gastrodon's Fire resistance and making Bisharp and Armaldo more susceptible to Fire-moves

    Although you could make a bulkier set around Sunny Day, your best option is to do away with the sun altogether, which isn't a bad idea since I don't think Exeggutor is that good at setting up Sunny Day anyway.

    Exeggutor @ Sitrus Berry
    Harvest
    ~ Substitute
    ~ Protect
    ~ Leech Seed
    ~ Giga Drain


    Hope this helps.

    You could replace exeggutor with Accelgor. Use it as a fast lead to lower your foes stats. Mine has acid spray, giga drain, struggle bug, and rest. Rest is used for doubles with the hydration ability and rain. It can be replaced with u-turn to evacuate if needed.
    I claim Salamence and Castform(Rain)!!!;



    Fear their power!!!
