    Hey everyone, this is my first competitive team here at this forum. I was browsing around different websites to see ways that I could play the Black and White pokemon games differently as they were one of my favorite games of all time and I came across the proposition of competitive pokemon which really got my attention. This is my first team here and I really think that it has turned out really well, but I'd like to make it better. Any suggestions will help, but anyways here is the team.

    Espeon @ Light Clay
    Ability: Magic Bounce
    EVs: 4 Def/ 252 HP/ 252 Spe
    Nature: Timid [+Spe, -Atk]
    -Light Screen
    -Hidden Power Bug

    Having Espeon as a lead Pokemon repels the rocks and spikes the opponent throws at you. Also, Espeon is immune to taunt and spore, making it much easier to set up duel screens and switch out to another Pokemon. Hidden Power Bug hits Dark type Pokemon. I decided not to use Hidden Power Fighting because you never know when a Ghost type will come out.

    Haxorus @ Lum Berry
    Ability: Mold Breaker
    EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spe
    Nature: Jolly [+Spe, -SAtk]
    -Dragon Dance

    After using one Dragon Dance, Haxorus is ready to sweep an entire team with its Outrage. The Lum Berry is to help cure the confusion of other status effects before the Outrage. Earthquake will hit Steel types that are resistant against Haxorus' Outrage. Taunt is for preventing Haze and status effects on him.

    Togekiss @ Choice Scarf
    Ability: Serene Grace
    EVs: 4 HP/ 252 SAtk/ 252 Spe
    Nature: Timid [-Atk, +Spe]
    -Air Slash
    -Aura Sphere
    -Thunder Wave
    -Nasty Plot

    Because Togekiss is holding a Choice Scarf, it only make sense to keep spamming her Air Slash. It annoyed the heck out of people especially if they are in a Status Condition. Just in case a Tyranitar or a Weavile comes out, Togekiss can simply use her Aura Sphere and switch out before another Ghost type comes.

    Infernape @ Life Orb
    Ability: Iron Fist (Yeah I got it! )
    EVs: 4 SAtk/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spe
    Nature: Hasty [-Def, +Spe]
    -Close Combat
    -Stone Edge

    This Infernape is special because it's a supporter and a sweeper. Close Combat will cripple anything (like Blissey) because of its amazon base power, 120 plus STAB, Life Orb boost, and Iron Fist Boost. Overheat takes out those annoying walls like Forretress and Ferrothorn. U-turn will make an easy switch to recover from its defense loss and Stone Edge Owns Flying types.

    Dusclops @ Eviolite
    Ability: Pressure
    EVs: 4 SDef/ 252 HP/ 252 Def
    Nature: Relaxed [-Spe, +Def]
    -Night Shade
    -Pain Split

    Dusclops is an amazing wall in 5th generation thanks to the new item. The reason why this Dusclops is EVd in defense is because it will protect Chansey from her weaknesses. Before Machamp ,Terrakion, or Conkeldurrs switch in, Dusclops can come out and burn them all with Will-O-Wisp! Pain Split is an excellent choice considering that Dusclops has terribly low HP. Toxic will destroy all the Pokemon that can't take down Dusclops.

    Chansey @ Eviolite
    Ability: Nature Cure
    EVs: 4 SDef/ 252 Def/ 252 HP
    Nature: Bold [-Atk, +Def]
    -Seismic Toss

    Players these days love inflicting statuses these days. That's why I'm smart enough to put a cleric on my team. Sadly I can't get a Chansey with Wish so I guess Softboiled will have to do. Seismic Toss is probably the only option you can use in battling because of Chansey's low attack and specal attack. Stalling out the Pokemon with Toxic is a good choice as well.

    That's my team guys Please tell my what you think. Also, tell me what I should replace. Thank you for your cooperation
