There's a local Pokemon competition this summer and I want to enter. I'm currently running an almost nazi like eugenic/breeding program to get my pokes.

Rules:Its essentially 4 pokes and 2 out at a time. Cannot have duplicate pokes and only Unova pokes

Long Rules:
Spoiler:
Each match is played using the Pokémon Communication Club Coliseum, found on the top floor of the Pokémon Center in Pokémon Black and Pokémon White Versions. The tournament will use the GS Cup rules set, with some additional restrictions.
• Each player uses four Pokémon during the battle, and sends out two Pokémon at a time.
• The Flat Battle rules have an auto-level feature, which sets all Pokémon that are above level 50 down to level 50 for the dur
• ach player uses four Pokémon during the battle, and sends out two Pokémon at a time.
• The Flat Battle rules have an auto-level feature, which sets all Pokémon that are above level 50 down to level 50 for the duration of the battle with the following parameters:
◦ Each Pokémon retains all of the moves that it knew before being auto-leveled
◦ Pokémon that evolve after level 50 do not devolve when auto-leveled
◦ Pokémon below level 50 remain at their actual level rather than being auto-leveled up to level 50 for the battle
◦ The Pokémon's stats are adjusted to what its level 50 stats would be
• A player's team may not contain two Pokémon with the same Unova Pokédex number.
• Each Pokémon on a player's team may use held items, though no two Pokémon may hold the same item during battle. Allowed items include held items from Pokémon Black and White Versions as well as from earlier video games, including all legally obatinable Berries. The Soul Dew item may not be used.
• Players may not enter two Pokémon with the same nickname.
• Players may not enter a Pokémon nicknamed with the name of another Pokémon character (for example, a Emboar nicknamed "Samurott").
• Players found to have inappropriate/offensive Trainer names or Pokémon nicknames, as determined by the event staff, will be disqualified from the event.
• Players can not, once entered into play change Pokemon, Items or any other team details. during the event.
• Players may use Pokémon found in the Pokémon Black and Pokémon White Versions Unova Pokédex, from 000 to 155, with the exception of the Pokémon listed below.

Ineligible Pokémon
The following Pokémon are NOT eligible for use in the tournament:
000 - Victini

149 - Reshiram

150 - Zekrom

152 - Kyurem

153 - Keldo

154 - Meloetta

155 - Genosect


I'm Planning on the following team. I'm usure about items. We can take 6 and swap them around between games.

Excadrill - Jolly (+A/-SA) EVs: 4HP 252Atk 252Sped
Rock Slide, Earthquake, X-Scissor, Focus Energy

Essentially he can dump rocks, or earthquake with eelektross around.

Eelektross - Modest (+SA/-A) EVs: 252HP, 252SAtk 4 Def
Flamethrower, Thunderbolt, Acid Spray, Volt Switch (or hidden power ice but that's even more breeding madness!)

Tough and after using acid spray can lay the smack down on stuff. In addition he synergies with Excadrill. Also enables me to fire off excadrills earthquake then volt switch out if necessary

Zoroark - Modest (+SA/-A) or Timid (+Spd/-A) EVs:252 Sped, 252 SAtk, 4HP
Flamethrower, Dark Pulse, Protect, Focus Blast

She poses as chandelure (who'll hit it with fighting?)Should a fighting type manifest I can switch to actual chandelure or for dark to Conkledurr

Conkeldurr - Adamant(+A/-SA) EVs: 252 HP, 252 Atk, 252HP, 4 Sped
Drain Punch, Mach Punch, Rock Slide, Protect

Heavy hitter and can hit multiple things with rock slide. Protect enables me to block any psychic type moves and switch out to chandelure or zoroark

Chandelure - Modest (+SA/-A) EVs:252 Sped, 252 SAtk, 4HP
Heatwave, Protect, Shadowball, Psychic

to lay the hurt on, heatwave is being bred in and basically the idea is to sweep once any threats have been dealt with

Haxorus - Jolly (+A/-SA) EVs: 252Atk, 252 Sped, 4 HP
Dragon Claw, Outrage, Rock Slide, Brick Break

General anti-dragon (anti-hydrageon) smasher of stuff

Any thoughts as I'm totally new to competitive? My only thoughts are lack of water and ice moves should I be facing Landorus (the legendary trios aren't banned)

My other thought is Hydrageon - it could provide surf, dragon moves, fire moves and it has levitate so teams with excadrill.

I could also use Volcarona as I think its a fast and good pokemon without too many weaknesses. But I'm open to suggestions for any pokemon that might improve the team.

Volcarona is to susceptible to rock type attacks with a 4x weakness. Hydreigon would be a great choice with the proper nature, moveset, and ev training. In my opinion drop the Eelektross and throw in Hydreigon.

Everyone and their nan will be using Haxorous, so make your decision on whether you want more power, and a bigger Haxorous weakness, or whether you want a weaker Pokemon that is very versatile.
As for Zoroark, why didn't you give it night daze, or is that just an event pokemon move?
My thought on it is make a max speed Hydreigon to replace your own Haxorous.
It's up to you though.

Scarf Hydreigon to outspeed Haxorus / Timid Sazandora would be good. Maybe something like this:

Sazandora (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 136 Atk / 252 SAtk / 120 Spd
Rash Nature (+SAtk, -SDef)
- Draco Meteor
- Earthquake
- Dark Pulse
- Surf

Focus Energy is a waste of a moveslot on Excadrill. Protect or Swords Dance replaces it; the former for protecting against multi-target attacks or the latter for a bigger boost in power.

That sounds like a plan - Max spd Hydrageon/Sazandora. My only reluctance is that haxorus has rock slide which hits both targets. Also why will everyone be using Haxorus as opposed to Hydrageon?

I could, as suggested replace electross with Hydrageon - he'd be good at going first out and would team with excadrill.

And yes Excadrill should have swords dance (although I am thinking that protect may be better)

Hydreigon is better then Haxorus, since it has a higher Base Speed (by one point) I just put Scarf on it since it can out speed other Hydreigons and basically outspeed the metagame (barring other Scarf users)

I also sudgest Imprison + Trick Room Shandera, to block Trick Room users, because TR is a nail in the coffin for your team.

That would mean throwing out Chandelure first against trick room teams + imprisoning. That leaves me with heat wave and shadowball?

Fire + Ghost coverage is good enough, it is only resisted by Hydreigon (Gen V Only Wise)

That is true and a good point. Online I was against a trick-roomer. I managed to hold out until it faded and then KOed his porygon (as online its all gens not just gen V!)

Hiya,

It looks as though you've got a good team. I'm assuming your going to the Southampton qualifier on 16th July?

Would be good to see you in the national finals
