Pokémon Strategies and MovesetsPost your team lineups, get your team rated or rate other teams, talk about lineups, talk about moves/movesets, strategies, etc. For general talk about the games, go to the respective Pokémon game forums.
Me and my best friend are major Pokemon rivals, and lately, he has been countering everything I throw at him with a full team of sweepers, while I try to set up some stuff.
Starmie Lead @ Life Orb
Magmortar (Not sure on the specifics of this guy)
Machamp @ Lum BerryW/ Bullet Punch and Dynamic Punch with No Guard
Porygon Z @ Choice Specs
Weavile @ Focus Sash
Honchkrow @ Life Orb
I'm not sure on there stat spreads, but most of you should get the general idea on what they're for. It's really the Machamp that gives me my problems. Another thing, WE HAVE A SEVERE CLAUSE ABOUT SWITCHING AND LEGENDARIES. Neither is allowed to switch without the aid of a switching move such as Baton Pass or U-Turn.
The last spot is open for suggestions. What ever you find suitable, I will take into consideration. My main strategy seems to be based around letting Ninjask set up the Swords Dance/ Speed Boosts, Baton Passing in one of my slower Sweepers, and letting them go until gone. Like I said before, my main obstruction is the Machamp, so Physically Defensive Slowbro and Spec Alakazam with Focus Sash are my best choices at countering him. Thoughts my Pokebros?

A team to counter your friends? XD
I'd just go with the flow, dude~
Have your own team, try until it works! c:
Buuuuut, I'll offer some suggestions.
Choice Banded Scizor, is one.
252 Att/ 248 hp 8 spd Adamant nature
(Sword dance is an option, replace Pursuit and give him a Life Orb)
Maybe put in Rampardos place, never liked him that much~
Togekiss w/ Nasty Plot
252 Spl Att/ 252 Speed Timid nature (Or you may go for a more bulkier set up, Calm nature 252 HP/ 158 Def/ 100 Spl Def)
-Tri Attack/ Flamethrower
-Roost/ Thunder Wave
Replace Alakazam or Mismagius, more than likely Mismagius~
I agree with Erufuun. You can replace Rampardos and Mismagius with those two, but here's a Togekiss set you can use if you don't want to breed/transfer:
EVs: 252 HP/188 SDef or Def/68 SDef or Def
Ability: Serene Grace

You could put Shedinja in when his Machamp takes one of yours down. He cant touch you unless Machamp knows a fire attack or other weaknesses.Make Shedinja hold focus sash(or whatever saves a faint from a supereffective hit) Or you could try using Sableye on Machamp. His fightng moves wont hit and Sableye has no weakness
"WE HAVE A SEVERE CLAUSE ABOUT SWITCHING AND LEGENDARIES. Neither is allowed to switch without the aid of a switching move such as Baton Pass or U-Turn."
That's a terrible rule. Trick Scarf will let you setup as much as you like. Starmie doesn't have BP/U-turn so yeah.
Lead: Uxie@Scarf Trick/U-turn/2 filler
The rest of your team can consist of Pokemon that can set up on whatever Starmie is locked into (Water Absorbers for Surf/Hydro Pump, Volt Absorbers for Tbolt, Dark-types for Psychic, light Pokemon for Grass Knot).
Espeon can be useful too since it has high Sp Def, and learns Baton Pass.
