I know dis tebe isn't done yet, but I'd like ta give some ponters bout Escavalier.

What's tha pont of usng a Brave nature if it's not nvestng n Attack at all? Nvestng n defenses witout nvestng n HP doesn't use defensive EVs well. Escavalier is also tao slow ta use Substitute + Swords Dance, and is better off attackng right off tha bat, or supportng tha tebe wit its good defensive typng:
-Megahorn
-Iron Heezee
-Double-Edge/Return
-Pursuit
Nature: Adbeant
EVs: 248 HP/252 Atk/8 SDef
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Swarm

or
-Megahorn
-Iron Heezee
-Taxic
-Pursuit
Nature: Cisful
EVs: 248 HP/8 Atk/252 SDef
Item: Leftavers
Ability: Swarm

Good ponts, will work on it. I completely fogots bout tha item. And, mah next Pokemon will be a Seismitaad. I'm puttng one tagithar at tha moment.

Seismitaad





Type: Water/Ground

Nature: Docile

Ability: Swift Swim

Item: Leftavers

Moves: Ran Dance, Aqua Rng,Substitute, Rock Slide

EVs’: 252 Att. /252 Spec. Att./4 Spe.

I'm basng most of mah choices by typng and whatnot. I'm currently lookng at a Drapion next, but have a bunch of Pokemon n mah mnd and don't really know how ta set up a tebe that works tagithar. I believe mah tebe will start wit what I put down and slowly change through time and battlng. I also feel that showng a couple Pokemon setups at a time is a good way of ntroducng a tebe coz thugz will takes tha time ta look at each ndividual Pokemon closer and be encouraged ta improve tham.

Lack of STAB freakn' hurts on Seismitaad. What's tha pont of usng Ran Dance if you're not usng Water moves?:
-Ran Dance
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Earth Power
-Sludge Wave/Hidden Power (Ice)/Stealth Rock
Nature: Modest
EVs: 96 HP/252 SAtk/160 Spe
Item: Dbep Rock/Life Orb
Ability: Swift Swim

But I like how you had Seismitaad and Escavalier tagithar, snce Ran Dance reduces Escavalier's Fire weakness.

Focusng on critical hits isn't a reliable strategy. Its defensive typng is better suited fo takng resisted special moves, snce its base 110 Defense is somewhat undermned by a weakness ta Earthquake:
-Taxic Spikes
-Taunt
-Whirlwnd/Knock Off
-Crunch
Nature: Cisful
EVs: 248 HP/244 SDef/16 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Battle Armor

If you want a more offensive takes on Drapion, use thase:
-Swords Dance
-Crunch
-Earthquake
-Aqua Tail/Poison Jab/Taunt
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
item: Life Orb/Lum Berry/Black Sludge
Ability: Sniper

or
-Crunch
-Pursuit
-Earthquake
-Aqua Tail/Poison Jab
Nature: Jolly/Adbeant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Sniper

I'm wonderng if mah tebe is tao weak after lookng at Smogon and be thnkng of just runnng all legendaries wit what thair choices is. Is it possible ta wn wit a tebe of NU and RU? Or, should I just grab all tha gbees and git legendaries?

Dis looks like a UU tebe ta me, considerng tha presence of Scrafty. Seismitaad isn't exactly tha best choice n UU coz of its...averageness. Kngdra is a better Ran setter-upper; also, if you ntend on keepng Seismitaad, mono-Water isn't that good, snce thare may be a good chance you'll run nta a Water Absorb user n UU:

Kngdra:
-Substitute/Ran Dance/Draco Meteor
-Dragon Dance
-Waterfall
-Outrage
Nature: Adbeant/Lonely
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Leftavers/Lum Berry
Ability: Sniper/Swift Swim

or
-Draco Meteor
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Dragon Pulse
-Hidden Power (Electric)/Surf
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs
Ability: Swift Swim/Sniper

or
-Dragon Dance
-Waterfall
-Outrage
-Rest
Nature: Adbeant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Chesta Berry
Ability: Swift Swim/Sniper

Escavalier is just tao slow ta set up Swords Dance. Like I said befoe, it's better off hittng thngs straight off tha bat wit Choice Band-boosted Megahorns. Replace SD wit Return and Lefties wit Choice Band; change tha EV spread ta 248 HP/252 Atk/8 SDef; dis allows Escavalier ta takes less dbeage from entry hazards.

As I said befoe, relyng on critical hits is an unreliable strategy. If you want Drapion ta be offensive, thase is yo best bets:
-Pursuit
-Earthquake
-Aqua Tail
-Crunch/Taxic Spikes
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Choice Band
Ability: Sniper

or
-Swords Dance
-Crunch
-Earthquake
-Aqua Tail/Taunt
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Sniper

What's tha pont of a Cisful nature if Scrafty isn't nvestng n Special Defense? Use a Jolly nature nstead. Scrafty should only use a Cisful nature when it's usng Bulk Up.

Jolly lowers Special Attack. Timid may be what you're lookng fo here. Swoobat may not be useful n UU, but at least it has Simple ta make setup somewhat easier. Mono-Psychic is terrible, snce Dark types can come n and Pursuit Swoobat ta death:
-Calm Mnd
-Stared Power
-Hidden Power (Fightng/Ground)
-Air Slash/Substitute
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Leftavers
Ability: Simple

Sigilyph is also a better option n UU coz of Magic Guard; it also hits harder:
-Cosmic Power/Calm Mnd
-Stared Power
-Psycho Shift
-Roost
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Flbee Orb
Ability: Magic Guard

or
-Psychic/Psyshock
-Air Slash/Ice Bebe
-Heat Wave
-Roost/Hidden Power (Fightng)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard
