Hey again, some of you might remember I did a thread earlier this month with my first comptitive team, well I've just about finished it off and tested it, it's able to hold its own quite easily in random matchup but so far all my 6v6 matches have been a bit shady, and I think it's to do with how I open up. But anyway heres the team and any CC is greatly aprriciated!

Gliscor @ Leftovers
Jolly Nature
Sand Veil
Ice Fang - Earthquake - U-turn - Roost
6 Defense | 252 HP | 252 Speed

Best lead I've got at the moment, most people expect him to be carrying Stealth Rock but I try surprise them by going straight out attacking, sounds pretty reckless now I think about it. But he can always U-Turn out if theres a threat.

Starmie @ Choice Specs
Timid Nature
Natural Cure
Thunderbolt - Ice Beam - Surf - Psychic
6 Special Defense | 252 Special Attack | 252 Speed

My hit and runner basically, timid nature has helped it outrun a few threats, I try switch her into things that won't do much damage then just hit them with what hurts the most.

Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet
Relaxed Nature
Iron Barbs
PowerWhip - Gyro Ball - Protect - Leech Seed
48 Defense | 252 HP | 210 Special Defense

My mixed wall, seeing as his defenses are pretty much even, but as of now most people have a counter for this beast, so he's kind of been pretty unhelpful recently.

Gallade @ Quick Claw
Adamant Nature
Swords Dance - Psycho Cut - Close Combat - Ice Punch
4 HP | 252 Attack | 254 Speed

Really need to find a better item for this guy, I just wish he was a bit faster because once I've got a SD this thing can cause havoc, but I'm having trouble keeping him alive long enough to cause some real damage. EDIT: Swapped Quick Claw for Expert Belt.

Salamence @ Dragon Gem
Adamant Nature
Dragon Dance - Dragon Claw - Stone Edge - Earthquake
252 Atk / 4 Hp / 252 Spd

Same problem as Gallade really, just hasn't been able to stay in long enough to rip sh** up so far, I think it's just been bad luck so far but if anyone knows any better movesets or spreads that'd be great. EDIT: Replaced 'Mence for the Hydriegon gone a few posts down.

Jolteon @ Zap Plate
Timid Nature
Volt Absorb
HP (Ice) - Shadow ball - Volt Switch - Thunderbolt
252 Sp.Atk | 252 Spe | 4 Hp

And finally, the cleaner I like to call him. He may look fragile but this thing has helped me alot online with his speed, volt switch is a god send of a move aswell, I just can't really think of anything to replace quick attack though.

So thats the team as of now, if anyone could just give the smallest of pointers I'd be grateful, thanks.
