This is the team I'm thinking of right now. its a bit low tier but these guy I think are quite effective.


calm (levitate)/(light clay?)
-Ice beam
-Light screen

jolly or defensive nature (prankster)/(mental herb)
-fake out
-confuse ray
-taunt or will-o-wisp
-telekinesis or will-o-wisp

adamant (skill link)/(focus sash)
-Icicle spear
-Razor shell
-shell smash

Cryogonal & Sableye

The battle begins the two are sent out and sableye will fake out the grater threats to cyogonal's Def and cyogonal will set up reflect first then lightscreen and switch out sableye if needed. thats why im torn with a prioity taunt or burn for phyDef and telekinesis for the ensured hit on my opponent.

Cloyster & Sableye

again Sableye fakes out the threat and Cloyster pulls off shell smash. boosting atk and speed at the cost of DEF. then next turn spear and confuse the foe. but i expect cloyster to die soon after unlesss hit OHKOs.

switch ins

modest (levitate) (expert belt?)
-acid spray
-t-bolt / zap cannon (only if i pick telekinesis not sure)
-U-turn /t- wave

the way i was looking at it was if the screens are still up, acid spray would allow my spatk-er to deal more damage. but im not very confident in that move...

adamant (clear body)/ (life orb or expert belt)
-Meteor Mash
-Zen Headbutt
-Agility or bullet punch

its metagross and if screens are up it make it much more difficult to push this table of a pokemon to the side.

jolly (sheer force)/ (choice scarf)
-brave bird

not very sure about this guy i fell that the set is good but just a revenge kill is suppose.


all advise will be take openly and respectfull.

please grade or rate this team as you see fit

it will be appreciated :D

Cryogonal's isn't a good dual screener in OU because of its poor defensive typing (Ice), which gives it common weaknesses to Fire, Rock and Fighting. Espeon is a better dual screener thanks to Magic Bounce reflecting most statuses right back:
-Light Screen
-Hidden Power (Fighting/Ground/Fire)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Light Clay
Ability: Magic Bounce

Confuse Ray is a bit risky to use on Sableye. I'd use this set:
-Night Shade/Foul Play/Knock Off
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252 HP/120 Def/136 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Prankster

Explosion got nerfed in Gen V, so I think Rock Blast is a better alternative due to it benefitting from Skill Link and not hitting your partner. (use this EV spread: 48 HP/252 Atk/208 Spe)

Don't use Zap Cannon on Eelektross unless you're using a mixed Coil set because it has poor accuracy. Also, some tweaks to your set to make it effective:
-Acid Spray
-Grass Knot/Hidden Power (Ice)
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 HP/252 SAtk/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Expert Belt

Use Agility on Metagross and have it hold an Air Balloon (EVs should b 52 HP/252 Atk/204 Spe)
