This is my shoddy battle team.
Infernape/Life Orb
Blaze/Nature:Adamant/Ev - Att 255 Spd 255
Fake Out
Flare Blitz
Close Combat
Stealth Rock
Has been working well for me but not as well. He always does this: Fake Out+Stealth rock and then faints to something. But when he's alive it's very useful. Looking for another good lead.


Gengar/Lefties
Levitate/Nature:Modest/EV - Sp.att 255 Spd 255
Destiny Bond
Toxic
Protect
Confuse Ray
This thing hasn't done anything for me. Destiny Bond usually fails because the opponent switches and I die to T-tar's Sandstorm.


Starmie/Expert Belt
Natural Cure/Nature:Modest/EV Sp.Att 255 Spd 255
Surf
Thunder Bolt
Psychic
Reflect
Mixed Attacker. People who think Starmie is a bEaSt, You are right. No words.

Tyranitar/Expert Belt
Sand Stream/Nature:Adamant/EV Sp.Def 255 Def 255
Stone Edge
Crunch
Thunder Punch
SuperPower
This thing is my tank. It survived 5 Surfs from No Boost Starmie. BeAsT.

Heracross/Toxic Orb
Guts/Nature:Adamant/EV Spd 255 Att 255
Swords Dance
Facade
Megahorn
Close Combat
This thing sweeped 5 pokes after 2 SD's. Want to keep.

Flygon/Expert Belt
Levitate/Nature:Rash/EV - Sp. att 255 Spd 255
Fire Blast
Draco Meteor
U-Turn
Earthquake
It's not as good as I expected but will do.

So this is my team. Tell me mah weaknesses. Example battle:

Changes and comments in RED
BTW I'm fairly new to team rating but I'll give it my best

Aerodactyl/Focus Sash
Pressure/Nature:Jolly/EV - Att 252 Spd 252 Hp 6
Stealth Rock
Taunt
Stone Edge/Earthquake
Protect/Stone Edge/Earthquake
Some people say Gen 5 Ruined Aerodactyl as a lead, but I disagree...
You will outspeed nearly all pokes apart from Electrode, Deoxys and Ninjask. However the one to be afraid of is electrode. If he is sent out first (which is doubtful because I have never seen an Electrode lead) hit him with an earthquake, then when he has been dealt with send out your stealth rock and use protect as a use for your pressure ability (mainly for strong moves like Hydro Pump ect. with only 5 pp)



Gengar/Lefties
Levitate/Nature:Modest/EV - Sp.att 252 Spd 252 Hp 4
Shadow Ball
Focus Blast
Dream Eater
Hypnosis
This is my moveset for my Gengar, I use it to cut peoples flow with a hypnosis and just try to outspeed dark types and hit with a Focus Blast


Starmie/Expert Belt
Natural Cure/Nature:Modest/EV Sp.Att 252 Spd 252 Hp 6
Surf
Thunder Bolt
Psychic
Reflect
If it works don't change it

Tyranitar/Expert Belt
Sand Stream/Nature:Adamant/EV Sp.Def 252 Def 252 Hp 6
Stone Edge
Crunch
Thunder Punch
SuperPower
Strong tank :D

Heracross/Toxic Orb
Guts/Nature:Adamant/EV Spd 252 Att 252 Hp 6
Swords Dance
Facade
Megahorn
Close Combat
Again, this is a good moveset

Flygon/Choice Scarf
Levitate/Nature:Jolly/EV Atk 252 Spd 252 SpA 6
Earthquake
Outrage
Fire Blast
Stone Edge
I found this on the internets and was like 'this is an awesome moveset :O'
Earthquake and Outrage prove really well as STAB moves and are hard hitting, And Stone Edge and Fire Blast prove good covers who resist/are immune to Outrage/Earthquake (for example Bronzong


Oh and if you are wondering why I have decreased all of your EV's from 255 + 255 to 252 + 252 + 6 it is because of the calculation means that you waste 4 EV's moving one stat upto 255 or something... IDK but there is something important about 252...

It also helps boost a diiferent stat :D

Is this a Gen IV team, or a Gen V team? Anyway, here are my suggestions (Gen IV):

Change Infernape's set to:
-Fake Out
-Stealth Rock
-Overheat/Fire Blast
-Close Combat
Nature: Hasty/Naive
EVs: 64 Atk/252 SAtk/192 Spe
Item: Focus Sash

Give this Gengar set a shot. Your current set is too gimmicky, and the suggested set is too risky, since Hypnosis + Dream Eater is easily countered by switching:
-Substitute
-Disable/Pain Split
-Shadow Ball
-Focus Blast
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

Make Starmie your Rapid Spinner; Reflect isn't worth it:
-Surf
-Thunderbolt
-Rapid Spin
-Recover/Ice Beam
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/4 SDef/252 Spe (if using Recover) or 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe (if using Ice Beam)
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
Ability: Natural Cure

I'd give Flygon the Choice Scarf.

I'd make the most out of Tyranitar's massive movepool with this:
-Flamethrower/Fire Blast
-Ice Beam
-Dark Pulse/Crunch/Thunderbolt/Stone Edge
-Superpower
Nature: Hasty
EVs: 56 Atk/252 SAtk/200 Spe
Item: Expert Belt

If this is Gen V, go with what I suggested, except:

Make Tyranitar your lead:
-Stealth Rock
-Fire Blast
-Crunch
-Ice Beam/Superpower
Nature: Sassy
EVs: 252 HP/280 SAtk/76 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sand Stream

Replace Flygon with Hydreigon:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Focus Blast
-U-turn/Dark Pulse
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf

With the Gen V, changes, use this Infernape set:
-Overheat/Fire Blast
-Close Combat
-Grass Knot/U-turn
-Stone Edge/Mach Punch
Nature: Hasty/Naive
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Blaze

Well, personally I dont like choice scarfs cause you have to switch to make a new move so...
BTW I decided to make infernape a mixape and have a claydol lead.
Claydol/Light Clay
Explosion
Light Screen
Stealth rock
Rapid Spin

I just randomly chose this guy. He's been good in the past day but I see many Metagross leads and leads that explosion just won't OHKO.
