    For me, I'd have to say its between Overcoat Mandibuzz, Prankster Sableye and my newest addition in Ferrothorn. I didn't like using Ferrothorn originally because of its overuse. Nowadays I haven't seen a seed of it as much. I actually used an odd combination, that works with its overpowered defenses. It's a Subset so it can use its Support role to stun Fire Types. It's a 3 in 1 pokemon, Striking most pokemon, Walling most moves, and supporting its team and it does it well.

    Mandibuzz is my favourite wall of them all. It is designed to be a bulky troll, even taking super effective moves for at most a 3 hit KO funnily enough. Due to the overuse/superior high chance of males appearing in battle, Mandibuzz is pretty much a beast. A friend who prefers Braviary over it even said that out of all the Pokemon I used against him, that birdy is my best one. It won't be good against most legendaries (due to them being Genderless) but I love that bird and trust it with my soul. Mandibuzz is more focused as a Supporter then a Wall.

    Prankster Sableye is one I've been trying to make work for ages but thanks to a friend's help, I got one. It's not much a wall but it is more a pest then a fighter under its status as a Supporter. Sableye is pretty much the scout of the team thanks to it's higher priority.

    I have afew pokemon which I trust Slaking Ninjask Ledian and Bastiodon I tend to use 3 of these pokemon in overused those being slaking ninjask and bastiodon while Ledian I like to use in lower tiers and in the battle subway slaking is my all handy killer who'll I save for just the right pokemon who'd otherwise give me a hard time usealy being a dragon and then one hit KO it with slakings massive attack and giga impact tho sometimes been suprised by a focus sash on a gachomp his never failed me for my uses nexst up ninjask call me crazy but I don't use mine for passing instead I use him for U-turn his high speed I tend to put him at the front of my team to scout and do some damge with U-turn at the same time as letting me change in something good for taking out whatever I'm facing sure you got those annoying first hit moves but usealy they don't bother me much match punch being the least to worry about due to the flying bug typing in the end I tend to deal damage over afew pokemon sometimes even killing one or two at the same time as keep the little bug safe and last of my overused set is Bastiodon who seems to be one of my best pokemon on my team taking down anything without moldbreaker with metal burst or just tanking hits and spreading toxic I've even had him take down half a team in overused which was suprising at best and last of all ledian I love this guy and would use in overused but I doubt he'd ever be useful enough but has been good for me in other tiers mine is an iron fist Ledian with only bug buzz as its only special move which fits in nicely considering as for what makes this guy trustful is the fact it got the punch moves thunder and ice along with drain punch from the move tutors means water flying rock grass bug dragon and so on all can be hit super effective by this little guy and with nice enough speed he outruns most the pokemon I usealy have him fighting so regardless of anything people tell me those are my most trusting pokemon hope to add more to the list with the upcoming gen

    Ever since gen IV Mamoswine has been pretty much a staple on almost all of my teams as he's one of the few pokemon i can actually use well lol. Gliscor also turned out to be a pokemon i could fall back on this gen, but definitely not as much as i can with swine cuz we go back! Always can rely on my baby....my big baby

    I'm going to have to go with Latios. His speed and sp atk are perfect for this meta, letting him run very effective specs and scarf sets. With scarf he always outspeeds the common fighting types and with specs he is an amazing wall breaker. Plus he isn't limited to choice items, life orb sets with recover and boosting sets utilizing calm mind are also incredibly viable.

    this. well, with dual chop instead of dragon claw.

    It's kind of tough to call pokemon I trust, but here goes. I like Gyarados, Salamence, Infernape, and Gengar as my offensive choices. All of these are cool looking and I can count on them to punch holes. There's others, but these could be my most favorites. Set-up and sweep or just sweep as fast as you can. Gyara and Sala being the more fun ones thanks to Moxie.

    Eeveelutions aren't always the best, but I'm glad my favorite eeveelution and pokemon of all time is still good. Vaporeon. I just love how she's immune to water altogether. How her attack Scald can burn and turn the tide of a battle. Her wish to protect to keep her opponents busy and such. Sometimes, I feel as though she was meant for me despite loving offense. Vaporeon being my B'n'B. I haven't fought extremely skilled opponents with my Vaporeon on my team, but I want to take her and her teammates to good battles to hone my skills as a Vaporeon user....despite how silly that sounds.

    Dragonite, Terrakion, Gyarados, and Ferrothorn will always be on my team, the other 2 slots are part timers. Of these very important 4 though, if I were down to my last Pokemon, I'd feel most confident if it were my Dragonite. He's got health recovery, great stats, a solid offensive typing, and fire punch. Oh and don't even get me started on Multiscale. The fact that I use Roost with Leftovers is good enough, but with Multiscale too, on top of some Dragon Dances? Dragonite is just silly.

    In OU, Moxie Salamence. Its great offenses and speed make it one of the best sweepers. I also tend to stick to sweepers more than any others.

    I have quite a few, but I can always count on Gengar.

    i ALWAYS use starmie. hail, sun, rain, doesnt matter. hes probably the best spinner in ou. i tried fortress but he set up hazards better than spinning. my other staple is ferro. he always pulls his weight and sets up hazards.

    Starmie can even be anti-weather while spinning.

    Gengar: Gengar is a very reliable Pokemon. I mean who can deny that especially when it manages to remain OU through all 5 gens. There is just so much you can do with Gengar with its huge movepool and good offensive stats very easy to fit on most teams

    Ferrothorn: Probably my favorite hazard layer (Besides maybe Deo-D). Does not feel like deadweight like Forretress does to me. It can put down hazards or status but it can also give/take hits. It is not compeletely useless when Taunted like some other status/hazard setters. Iron Barbs is just a +

    Azumaril: Yeah

    Stoutland: So yeah I do not know why more people do not use Stoutland on sand teams. Silk Scarf+Retaliate is crazy powerful as I have found out. One of the most handy Pokemon when you are in trouble

    Landorus: Like Gengar in the sense that there is a lot you can do with it because of movepool stats etc. Easy to find a good place for it on most teams and has even more potential as a sweeper than Gengar since it gets stat boosting moves

    Probably Magnezone. It destroys Ferrothorn, Forretress, and Scizor locked into Bullet Punch flawlessly, barring the insane person who used Earthquake on Forretress immediately. (?)

    Gotta say Dragonite. I know his weaknesses but at the end of the day. With a good moveset. It's THE Pokemon. Starmie as well

    I made a new competitive team the other day and my Glaceon is amazing. It's incredibly lucky (has avoided most Fire Blasts and Hi-Jump Kicks that came its way), and is able to defeat most counters that would be seen as hard to beat. In fact, it has wiped out a team of Chandelure, Mienshao and Hydreigon single-handedly (my new battle video). It's also great when it works with my Blaziken or Togekiss, because they cover each other's weaknesses.

    Heatran. The sheer amazing power of this thing is only one of the reasons why I love it. His stats are all amazing (except his Speed, and that's what Flame Charge Heatran is for), his typing almost couldn't be better, and his ability only compliments that and gives him the ability to severely mess with Sun teams. In fact, I'm sure that Heatran is at least partially responsible for nobody ever using Sun. If they made some sort of Rain equivalent of Heatran that doesn't totally suck (which puts Gastrodon out), then maybe we wouldn't have such a big issue with weather team dominance. Not to mention, what's not to love about a fiery molten metal death monster that eats babies for 3 square meals a day?

    On what tier does one find Glaceon, Blaziken, and Togekiss on the same team? You crossed like 4 different tiers there... VGC maybe?

    Currently, I find 2 worthy pokemon to use in terms of Defense in RU and UU. potentially, OU as well.

    Ampharos (believe it or not, with one cotton guard up or two, earthquakes become nothing much) and Walrein (the Ice body hail set is rather annoying to the opponent. Give the move hail, he can disrupt the weathers summoners excluding Obamasnow).

    I put so much faith in my Porygon2. With eviolite, Calm nature and 252 SDef EV's, the thing has upwards of 600 special defense. With no investment at all, it has more than 400 physical defense. Porygon2 has gotten me through countless games and I can't imagine my team without it. Here's to the duck.
    Life is a funny thing. I have something of a love-hate relationship with it.

    JELLICENT! With Cursed Body and Special Defense spec. Dear good, has that weird little mustached Jellyfish has covered my bum so many times.... Switching in on a fighting 'mon they will instantly switch to a special attack monster... only to do 10% dmg. Works everytime, 100% of the time. Plus he wiped 3 straight teams in the Global Showdown... He's my MVP for sure.
