Haunter Spooks Cinccino
A 5th Gen NU Team

Well first off, I'm extremely new to competitive battling. Which is somewhat surprising. Thought I'd never get into competitive battling, yet here I find myself extremely interested in it lately. I've built this team, and I've had a bit of success with it, winning about 50% (probably less, lol) of my battles. I would like to see that percentage go up, so any bit of help with this NU team will be extremely appreciated.

Team Building


The first team member I added was Cinccino. I love this chinchillas speed and ability to come in late and pick off the remains of teams.


Next, I chose to add Magmortar. In order for Cinccino to come in late in a match and finish off the team, I needed a strong wallbreaker.


Leafeon made the team next. With Quagsire being a threat, I needed and wanted to add a grass type.


Next, I needed a Pokémon that was capable of Stealth Rock and Rapid Spin. Here is where Armaldo made the cut...at least for now.


Absol made the team next with it's incredible attack stat. However, I'm still not sure what set I should go with here.


And last but not least, Haunter makes the team. This spot was originally for Floatzel, however I have seen a bit more success with Haunter in this spot then Floatzel.
