Mandibuzz @ Leftovers
Ability: Overcoat
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SDef
Careful Nature
- Foul Play
- Roost
- Taunt
- Toxic
252 SpA Mega Gengar Sludge Bomb vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Mandibuzz: 135-159 (31.9 - 37.5%)
0 Atk Mandibuzz Foul Play vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Mega Gengar: 156-186 (59.5 - 70.9%)

Assuming Mega Gengar's Shadow Tag isn't in effect until next turn so that Mandibuzz can switch in; otherwise, it's technically impossible to counter.

Mawile:

-Swords Dance/Substitute
-Play Rough
-Sucker Punch
-Fire Fang/Iron Head/Substitute
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 132 HP/252 Atk/124 Spe
Item: Mawilite
Ability: Intimidate

Though an unboosted Mega Mawile takes around 30% health from Foul Play, it doesn't care about Toxic (or possibly Taunt, if it doesn't need to set up on future turns) and can wreck Mandibuzz with Play Rough.

Heatran@Leftovers
244 HP / 36 SpA / 12 SpD / 216 Spe
Calm Nature
- Substitute
- Torment
- Lava Plume
- Protect

Avoids Sucker Punch and at worst 4x resists everything. Can then Torment water and stuff with one attacking move switch ins so they cant do squat.

Resists only attack, hits for at least neutral damage and can set up with ease unless lava plume burns.

.gamer is trying to kill the thread picking terrakion

best counter is probably

Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 240 HP / 248 Def / 20 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Taunt
- Earthquake
- Toxic
- Protect

Terrakion can't set up on it and takes around 80 from an EQ, an OHKO if it already used CC for some reason. Tangrowth is decent since it can KO or put Terrak to sleep but it has a chance of being ohko'd after SR. The real best counter to Terrakion is not letting it get into situations where it can set up easily, or at least force 50-50's. Bright powder Shedinja does decent too im sure.

Unless Skarmory can get multiple critical hits, it can't KO Gliscor. Once Skarmory is taunted, not even Whirlwind can save it. The battle will go on until Brave Bird runs out of PP and then Gliscor will prevail.


Octillery (F) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Suction Cups
EVs: 96 HP / 208 SAtk / 204 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Fire Blast
- Surf
- Energy Ball
- Ice Beam

Octillery can switch into any of Skarmory's moves including Whirlwind thanks to Suction Cups. It can survive a Brave Bird and OHKO Skarmory in return with a Fire Blast after the recoil damage.

0 Atk Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Octillery: 136-162 (46.7 - 55.6%)


Edit: I don't know if Zeffy's set counts or not, but it doesn't matter as Octillery has enough HP EVs to survive an Earthquake from Gliscor.

Skarmory's manly brother steps in to take a hit for his very good friend;



Mantine @ Leftovers / Chesto Berry
Trait: Water Absorb
248 HP / 252 SpD / 8 Spe (funnily enough puts it one point ahead of 204 Spe Octillery)
Calm Nature
- Air Slash
- Scald
- Sleep Talk / Mirror Coat
- Rest

Octillery versus Mantine:
Surf: -25--25%
Energy Ball: 23.1 - 27.3%
Fire Blast: 13.8 - 16.5%
Ice Beam: 23.1 - 27.3%

0 SpA Mantine Air Slash vs. 96 HP / 0 SpD Octillery: 85-102 (26.9 - 32.3%). Flinch it to death, or if you are really impatient, run Mirror Coat.

Heliolisk:

-Thunderbolt
-Volt Switch/U-turn
-Focus Blast
-Hidden Power (Ice)/Grass Knot
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Choice Specs
Ability: Dry Skin

Heliolisk switches in to Mantine with impunity, being immune to Scald and resisting Air Slash. It OHKOs Mantine with either Thunderbolt or Volt Switch and has other coverage moves to deal with possible switch-ins.

-(Mega) Venusaur w/Venusaurite
Nature: Sassy
Ability: Chloryphyll----->Thick Fat
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Sp.Defense, 4 Attack
Moves: Giga Drain, Earthquake, Synthesis, Protect/Toxic

Due to the nature and EVs, Venusaur can switch into a Hidden Power Ice from Heliolisk without much fear (and it'd take little from the other attacks). From there, it can mega evolve, giving it the bulk to take little damage from all of Heliolisk's attacks. Afterwards, you simply heal with Giga Drain/Synthesis, or OHKO with Earthquake.

Mega Charizard w/ Charizardite Y
4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
Ability: Drought
~ Fire Blast
~ Flamethrower
~ Focus Blast
~ Air Slash

Mega Charizard Y is quite fast, and should be able to outrun Mega Venusaur. It brings out sunlight thanks to Drought, which gives boost to all its fire-type moves. With only about two Fire Blast or three Flamethrower attacks, it should be able to take down Venusaur without any issue.

Goodra:

-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast/Flamethrower
-Thunderbolt
-Focus Blast/Dragon Tail
Nature: Modest/Quiet
EVs: 248 HP/8 Def/252 SAtk
Item: Assault Vest
Ability: Gooey/Sap Sipper

With Assault Vest and its monstrous Special Defense, Goodra can shrug off even sun-boosted attacks from Charizard Y and strike back hard with a super effective Thunderbolt or a powerful Draco Meteor. Once Charizard Y is down, Goodra can then make use of sun-boosted Flamethrowers/Fire Blasts against Steels.

Flash Fire
252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid nature
-Fire Blast
-Earth Power
-Hidden Power Ice
-Taunt

Heatran takes little from all of Florges' attacks. Fire Blast does 52.6 - 62.4%. Taunt shuts down Calm Mind.

That's a really debatable argument, given that Pokemon is a team effort--unless it's a 1v1. But, touche :x

Machamp w/ Lum Berry
Ability: No Guard
EVs: 240 HP / 248 Atk / 16 SpD / 4 Spe
Nature: Adamant
~ DynamicPunch
~ Payback
~ Bullet Punch
~ Stone Edge

Machamp's got good Attack stat, and thanks to No Guard, it should be able to land all its moves without worrying about anything. With only about two to three DynamicPunches, Porygon2 would instantly be taken down.

Slowbro @ Lefties
Regenerator
248 HP / 244 Def / 16 SpA
Bold nature
-Scald
-Psyshock
-Thunder Wave
-Slack Off

Best options against Slowbro are Payback and Stone Edge, which do about 25.9 - 30.5% only. Scald has a nice burn rate to cripple it and Psyshock 2HKO's Machamp.

I never really used Sylveon, but I'll just go with this set. Takes little to no damage from Hydreigon, Moonblast OHKOs.
