    This is my single battle team.

    Suicide Lead
    Azelf @ Focus Sash
    Ability: Levitate
    Nature: Naive (+Speed, -Special Defense)
    Stealth Rock
    Fire Blast

    This set has never failed to lay down Stealth Rock, literally. Most of the time Azelf gets to explode. Obviously, first turn, Stealth Rock/Taunt (Depending on the opponent), second turn, Stealth Rock/Fire Blast/Explosion (Depending on the last turn as well as the opponent), and repeat until Stealth Rock has been laid down and Azelf faints/explodes.

    Physical Attacker/Sleep Support
    Breloom @ Toxic Orb
    Ability: Poison Heal
    Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)
    Seed Bomb
    Mach Punch
    Stone Edge

    What can I say? This is really self-explanatory. Spore on anything slower than her and most that's faster, Mach Punch for revenge killing, Seed Bomb for strong STAB, and Stone Edge for good weakness coverage.

    Special Glass Cannon
    Gengar @ Choice Scarf
    Ability: Levitate
    Nature: Hasty (+Speed, -Defense)
    Focus Blast
    Shadow Ball

    Gengar is FAST. Scarfed Gengar is a speed demon. The scarf allows him to outrun anything un-scarfed, bar Deoxys-S. The first three three attacks are standard for Scarfed Gengar. I use Psychic to get Fightings and other Poisons before they get to me. This set provides coverage of eleven different types. Try that with any other Glass Cannon.

    Milotic @ Leftovers
    Ability: Marvel Scale
    Nature: Bold (+Defense, -Attack)
    Ice Beam

    This set has proven to be very annoying for opponents, and on occasion it has won me battles where it was Milotic at the end vs. all three of the other guy's Pokemon. This set aims to out-stall anything it's not super-effective against and kill anything it is.

    Physical Sweeper
    Dragonite @ Life Orb
    Ability: Multiscale
    Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)
    Dragon Dance
    Fire Punch

    Dragon Dance is the obligatory awesome set-up move. Outrage is the extremely powerful STAB move. ExtremeSpeed picks off the frail, fast, and weakened, and Earthquake gets great coverage. Fire Punch combos incredibly well with Outrage.

    Sturdier Special Attacker
    Eelektross @ Sitrus Berry
    Ability: Levitate
    Nature: Modest (+Special Attack, -Attack)
    Acid Spray
    Grass Knot

    Thunderbolt, Grass Knot, and Flamethrower cover 8 fairly common types. All of them also have a fair number of Pokemon that they are 4x effective against. The main Pokemon that are 4x weak are Gyarados, Swanna, Scizor, Ferrothorn, Carracosta, Golem, and Rhyperior. Of course, there are lot more, those are just the more commonly seen ones.
    Acid Spray is the secret weapon of this set. It's a 40 Base Power Special Poison-Type move. Nothing special. Actually, rather terrible. Except for its secondary effect. It is SURE to lower the target's special defense TWO STAGES, making it effectively an attacking Nasty Plot (more like Fake Tears, but you get the idea).

    Please help me with this team, and thanks in advance.
