Why is Hitmontop Modest? It's supposed to be Adamant, which boosts its Attack further. Also, it's absolutely helpless against Ghosts, so I'd drop Close Combat for Sucker Punch, or possibly Low Sweep for Mach Punch, since Hitmontop is a good priority abuser,.
How is Starmie not doing its job right?
Outrage isn't useful in a VGC format, since it hits a target at random. I'd rather use a coverage move instead, like Stone Edge, Aqua Tail or Fire Fang.
Focus Blast, despite the shaky accuracy, is the superior option over Energy Ball on Alakazam, since you never know when it has to go against Steel Pokémon.
