I posted here a few days ago and clearly had no idea what i was on about, i have had some practice and i think i have created a decent team...

rakiou @ leftovers
40hp, 252spa, 216spe
- calm mind
- substitute
- thunderbolt
- hidden power (ice)

I don't know if this a good idea but i try to get a sweeper set A.S.A.P so i lead with rakiou and use calm mind, substitute then max out on calm minds before thunder bolting everything in site, hidden power ice is just to deal with dragons

tyranitar @ leftovers
sand stream
252hp, 100att, 80def, 76spd
- curse
- stealth rock
- superpower
- ice punch

If i dont use raikou as a lead i use this, curse to boost up attack and def throw down some rocks then try and sweep.

skarmory @ leftovers
252hp, 252def, 4att
- spikes
- roost
- brave bird
- whirlwind

physical wall, layers up spikes and if a counter appears whirlwind takes care of it

blissy @ leftovers
natural cure
255hp, 255spd
- toxic
- soft boiled
- natural cure
- flame thrower

special wall, up until a few moments ago i was using seismic toss instead of flame thrower was that the right choice?

Jolteon @ choice specs
volt absorb
255spa, 255spe
- volt switch
- thunderbolt
- hidden power (ice)
- shadow ball

I know it looks painfully similar to raikou but this set works as a revenge killer especially the stab from volt switch, the other moves are useful but they just fill spots

scisor @ choice band
252hp, 252att, 4 spe
- u turn
- super power
- pursuit
- bullet punch

By far my most useful pokemon, u turn is my favoured move as with jolteon but scisor also has a stab in bullet punch. pursuit is incredibly useful as a lot of pokes are scared off by scisor

I assume there is a lot of holes in this team but its my first proper competitive team so please don't tare me to pieces (=

Rumble rock is back, expect a BETA soon.

Thundurus makes a better lead than Raikou would:
-Thunder Wave
-Thunderbolt/Volt Switch
-Hidden Power (Ice)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Prankster

Basically, this Thundurus prevents leads from setting up Stealth Rock via Taunt and cripples those and other Pokemon with Thunder Wave.

Make Jolteon Timid; it could use the extra Speed.

Scizor dies to SR if it switches into it 8 times, assuming that it didn't take damage during those times. The EV spread should be 248 HP/252 Atk/8 Spe

I think you meant Aromatherapy on Blissey rather than Natural Cure. Bold would be better for it, since it helps soften the blows from physical attacks, and with this spread: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef.

This would make a better Tyranitar lead set:
-Stealth Rock
-Fire Blast
-Ice Beam/Superpower
Nature: Sassy
EVs: 252 HP/180 SAtk/76 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sand Stream

since i posted this thread i swapped tyranitar out for groudon, and raikou for gengar... i don't understand having special moves on tyranitar though does it not make more sense to make use of his massive attack stat
