Latias needs Surf over Thunderbolt because Water + Dragon provides better neutral coverage than Electric + Dragon.

Milotic needs Recover over Haze so that it can survive longer.

It actually has Recover and not Toxic, it was 3:00 AM when I posted this. As for the part about Latias, I really prefer to keep T-bolt on it, otherwise Gyara will sweep me.

Well, you have Dory and sand, so essentially Gyara needs to get +3 speed before it can really sweep you, and DPulse will still do a number to it when it sets up. That, and Milotic will wall it hard probably, so you shouldn't have too much trouble with Gyarados even without T-bolt on Latias.

As Infernape go, either Life orb it (yes, it will die faster, but hey, since when didn't Infernape die quickly anyway) or you could perhaps give it a Fighting Plate or w/e it's called, as it still boosts your strongest stab as well as the priority. Consider trying out Nasty Plot Ape as it is one of the few things it can do that Blaziken can't, as Blaziken is practially more useful than Ape unless you run a choiced version (imo) due to its new ability, Speed Boost, and the fact that it hits harder. If you run NP, drop HP Ice, as Salamence dies to a +2 LO focus blast/fire blast with rocks anyway, and you won't be outspeeding any checks that'd be hurt by it like for instance the Lati@s.

Dragonite will be annoying to Ape with multiscale as well, so you could try putting SR on Nattorei over T-wave, as it is 1) counterproductive with gyro ball, and 2) the things that you'll want to hit with it will most likely not stay in unless they run hp fire, in which case you die (read: lati@s)

Finally, you could try putting X-Scissor on Dory over Rapid Spin if you find it to be a waste of a slot, as it allows you to brutally nail anything psychic/grass, such as the Lati@s, Tangrowth, Slowbro (sort of), as well as being your strongest attack against Bronzong.

Perhaps try having a Fire-type attack on TTar as well, as it will allow you to hit annoying Ferrothorns that will undoubtedly switch into you when they realize that they resist your entire moveset, idk where to put it though.

Good luck with your team!

Vaporeon/Tyranitar @Choice Scarf
Sand Stream, Jolly

Spread: 252 Atk/252 Speed/4 HP
Set:
Crunch
Pursuit
Stone Edge
Earthquake
----------
SuperPower > Earthquake. Hits Ferrothorn too.

Vuclan/Infernape @ Life Orb
Iron Fist, Naive

Spread: 252 Atk / 64 SpA / 192 Spe
Set:
Overheat / Fire Blast
Close Combat
Mach Punch
U-Turn

------

Ape is kinda meh in this meta, Lati@s and faster stuff are everywhere, but ok, this is prolly the best set. Iron Fist >>>>>>>>Blaze.


Wallace/Ferrothorn @Leftovers
Iron Barbs, Relaxed

Spread: 252 HP/204 Def/52 SpDef
Set:
Power Whip
Stealth Rock
Gyro Ball / Thunder Wave
Leech Seed

You NEED stealth Rock or things like Volcarona can keep coming in and wrecking you. T-Wave + Gyro is silly as you will t-wave them and do pathetic damage with it lol.

Colson Pryce/Excadrill @Balloon
Sand Throw, Jolly

Spread: 252 Atk/236 Speed/20 HP
Set:
Swords Dance
Earthquake
Rock Slide
Rapid Spin
--------
Jolly > Adamant.

Jackie/Latias @Leftovers
Levitate, Timid

Spread: 112 HP/ 204 SpAtk/192 Speed
Set:
Dragon Pulse
Calm Mind
Recover
Thunderbolt

Latios is better and takes less support to actually do something. CM Latias sucks imo, walled by too much and has moveslot syndrome. The best set is CM/Reflect or Roar/Dragon Pulse/Recover but it needs Spikes to work otherwise you're better off with Specs Latios.

Sean/Milotic @Leftovers
Marvel Scale, Bold

Spread: 248 HP/252 Def/8 Speed
Set:
Scald/Boil Over
Ice Beam
Recover
Dragon Tail

Dragon Tail is better than Haze imo
comments in bold. stupid char limitttt and lack of timeee lol

Wow, thank you so much for the rates, guys. Anyhow, I'm faced a dilemma with T-Tar. I was thinking of ditching Pursuit for a fire attack, as Opposite Day mentioned, or giving it SR and ditching the Scarf,
what do you guys suggest I do?
