Sandstorm FTW

Special Thanks To:


Let's break this down shall we?

(F) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 64 SAtk / 192 SDef
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
- Stealth Rock
- Stone Edge
- Crunch
- Fire Blast

Obv set up with Sand Stream. Then throw out a Stealth Rock for some damage. If he's taking hits like a champ, Sweep away (Yes, I've actually swept with him a few times).

(M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Suction Cups
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Toxic
- Seed Bomb
- Recover

Everyone has a Troll don't they? This is mine. Hp and Def EV's plus the 50% SpDef boost from Sandstorm to help blukiness. Toxic to watch their health whittle away. And if you need to, Recover until it does so. Seed Bomb for STAB against Water counter.

(F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Nasty Plot
- Aura Sphere
- Flash Cannon
- Dragon Pulse

Special Sweeper. Bring in on a weak foe, and one of two things. 1) Predict the switch in and use Nasty Plot for SpAtk boost +2, or 2) Start sweeping. High SpAtk with Life Orb does major damage. Aura Sphere for STAB and perfect hits, Flash Cannon for STAB and Dragon Pulse for Dragon counters.

(M) @ Flying Gem
Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Substitute
- Acrobatics
- Earthquake
- Swords Dance

Thinking about switching him out. Wasn't sure on a moveset, so I threw Substitute in there. Kind of a good revenge killer with Acrobatics.

@ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Rapid Spin
- Hydro Pump
- Thunderbolt
- Recover

Hit fast, hit hard, Spin and hazards away. Thunderbolt so he isn't walled by any other Water-Types. Just a spinner with added bonuses.

(M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Sand Force
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- U-turn
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Physical Sweeper. Choice Scarf raises Speed and outspeeds quite a bit I've seen. That's all.

Comments? Fixes?

I love Sandstorm teams and this one is working pretty great so far.
