Lead Powerhouse, takes out Pokemon with Choice Scarf Blast Burn

Yoko/Gothitelle
Naughty nature, strong willed
Staller, confuses opponents

Dono/Sandslash
Bold nature, capable of taking hits
Staller, avoids attacks and strikes hard.

Tsui/Serperior
Rash nature, alert to sounds
Powerhouse, takes out opponents with swift speed and Leaf Blade
Or Aerial Ace.

Preyo/Gyarados
Sassy nature, alert to sounds
Powerhouse, Secondary Leader, spams Thunderbolt and Surf with a high Special Atk.

Aero/Togekiss
Quiet nature, capable of taking hits
Healer, heals party and also serves as a Tank.

So, waddaya' think?

Unfortunately no. Most of their natures are terrible for competitive battling. Gyarados specializes in Attack, not Special Attack. I suggest reading our stickies and possibly doing some research on Smogon to get a better idea of the metagame. :)

Oh. Ok.
It's just that I battled my friend with Gyara as lead and managed to KO 5 with just Thunderbolt and Surf. That's all.

Well, since this is the in-game help forum, Natures don't really matter for in-game battles, or at least they never have for me. Let's not worry about natures for now. Just post their movesets and we'll go from there.

Also, if you're going to head into the world of competitive battling, you have to learn about EV's or Effort Values. They are a must in the world of competitive battling, without them, your next to useless. Here's a url:
