Hey all. This is a hyper offensive team I made not that long ago. Its focused mainly around two, DD Dragonite and SD Lucario.
The ideal situaton would be for Dnite to set up early game and cause huge amounts of damage to my opponent. Then send in Lucario and let him clean up late game. So without further ado lets met the rest of the team
Infernape (M) @Focus Sash Trait: Blaze
Jolly nature (+Speed -SpAtk)
This is a pretty unique set on Infernape. Infernape more often tahn not leads and tries to get up Stealtn Rock ASAP. Taunt is an interesting option but it works well agaist other pokemon wanting to get up hazzards early game. Close combat provides me with a powerful stab move and U-turn means I can switch out on bad match up's or gain some offensive momentum.
Espeon is here to provide support to my sweepers. With duel screens in play it gives my sweepers a great amount of support to set up. Espeon also helps at keeping tha hazzards away which is a huge plus for Dragonite. Psychic is for stab while Hidden power ground is to nail Heatran.
Gengar was chosen to add some special offense as well as speed to this team. Substitute well because its gengar, disable to hur pokemon such as conkeldurr who only have one move to hit me, it's also useful at disabling pursuits. Shadow ball for stab and along side Focus blast provides perfect coverage.
Bulky SD scizor works well in this team. With screen support Scizor can set up multiple SD and proceed to sweep with his powerful priority in bullet punch. Bug Bite provides duel stab and roost is there to heal off life orb damage as well as any damage taken before by scizor.
Dragonite is one of the biggest threats in the game. He is also one of the best pokemon to set up early game and even his checks/counters take huge amounts of damage after a few DD. Outrage is chosen as the stab move, Fire punch to hit most steel's and Extreme speed provides powerful priority.
Like I said Lucario is one of this teams main sweeper's and is a very dangerous pokemon to stall teams. Also his great typing and with the support of screens he can find many opportunities to set up. After a SD his attacks reaches sky high levels. Close Combat was chosen as stab move as choice, Crunch for coverage and extreme speed as priority.
Some other optiosn iv though of is replacing Gengar with either Nasty Plot Celebi, Sub Hydreigon or Rotom Wash. I chose Gengar becuase he was faster but am happy to replace him with other special attackers.
Iv also thought of just relying on Espeon to set up entry hazzards and Replace infernape with a special attacker again.
Note If I was to replace anyone with Rotom-W id probably swap Scizor to a Chice Band set to complete the Volt-Turn combo.
Thanks and yes that is a good set. The only problem I have with changing infernape set is I dont have any reliable way to get up Stealth Rock which is very important in a HO team. I mean id still have Espeon to try and bounce them back but I wouldnt call that reliable.
If you can't set up early in the game, possibly a spinner may be of use for Dragonite so it is even worse to face w/ Multiscale? Since you're open to replacing Gengar - Starmie is faster, but weaker sPA-wise, however has better coverage moves, especially ice beam to take out dragons that may get in the way of your Dragonite's sweep.
