    This is my first team ever so please be a little understanding. My goal with it is to knock out Pokemon quickly with my Starmie and Machamp as a supporter, but have my Volcarona scare my opponent with its self power ups. Whimsicott is my annoyer/staller as he will provide me with time to scope out the opponent’s team.

    Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet
    Trait: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 136 HP / 120 Def / 252 SDef
    Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
    - Thunder Wave
    - Spikes
    - Leech Seed
    - Power Whip

    Ferrothorn is my opener. Plan is to get out spikes + Twave immediately. Leech seed and power whip in case I need a backup tank to take a hit since Ferrothorn has high def and HP. Forces opponent to use special attacks due to helmet and Iron Barbs.

    Starmie @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Hydro Pump
    - Rapid Spin
    - Ice Beam
    - Psychic

    Starmie is a mix. She has rapid spin if I need to remove something but also packs a punch if needed. If I need more of a physical attacker, I can switch to my Machamp.

    Machamp (M) @ Choice Band
    Trait: No Guard
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 6 HP
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)
    - Dynamic Punch
    - Payback
    - Stone Edge
    - Ice Punch

    Machamp is my powerhouse. He's designed to take out any opponent with his boost in attack power. It will also be a mini supporter as his fast speed and 100% accuracy can ensure a confused and hurt opponent.

    Reuniclus (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Def
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Calm Mind
    - Recover
    - Psychic
    - Hidden Power [Fighting]

    I want him to be a back up attacker for when things get rough with Machamp and Starmie. He can soak up some hits and turn offensive when necessary.

    Whimsicott (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Prankster
    EVs: 252 HP / 244 SDef / 12 Spd
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Leech Seed
    - Substitute
    - Giga Drain
    - Taunt

    I use Whimsicott if I need to take a few hits or need to take a look at my opponents team. Taunt to prevent stat changes as I stall. Should be able to last a little on the field.

    Volcarona (M) @ Charti Berry
    Trait: Flame Body
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Quiver Dance
    - Bug Buzz
    - Fiery Dance
    - Hidden Power [Rock]

    I have Volcarona in here to put pressure on the opposing team. with her rising stats through quiver dance and fiery dance, the opponent has something to fear. This will either force the opponent to get her switched out or take her out with a rock type. Hidden Power [Rock] for countering Heatran and Salamence. The berry is to prevent it from being OHKO by fire.

    Being my first team, I would really appreciate it if I could get feedback. I'm going to be editing this a LOT, and eventually leveling up these Pokemon, so any advice is greatly appreciated!
