    So this is my first attempt at a competitive team since I stupidly tried jumping into it in gen 4 with no knowledge of Ev's and whatnot. But now I think I've got a bit of experience I want to give it another try, anyways heres the team;



    Gliscor@ Toxic Orb
    Impish Nature [+Def; -SpA]
    Ability: Poison Heal
    EVs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 Spe
    - Fling
    - U-Turn
    - Earthquake
    - Stealth Rock

    My lead, gets rocks up and can always U-Turn if theres a threat.




    Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet
    Trait: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 252 HP / 48 Def / 208 SpD
    Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spe)
    - Curse
    - Leech Seed
    - Power Whip
    - Gyro Ball

    The team tank, not much to say about it, takes hits well and annoys with leech seed.



    Salamence @ Life Orb
    Trait: Intimidate
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Hp / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)
    - Dragon Dance
    - Dragon Claw
    - Earthquake
    - Stone Edge

    Bet you never thought I'd have one of these eh, basically my physical sweeper if he can get a DD up.



    Starmie @ Leftovers
    Timid Nature (+Spe, - Atk)
    Ev’s: 252 Hp / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    - Rapid Spin
    - Surf
    - Thunderbolt
    - Recover

    Always wanted to use a Starmie, mainly my special attacker and rapid spinner, has a bit of bulk aswell so can be switch into some threats.



    Blaziken @ ???
    Jolly Nature
    Ev’s: 5 HP / 252 Atk / 253 Spe
    - Swords Dance
    - Protect
    - Hi Jump Kick
    - Flare Blitz

    Another physical attacker, he's mainly in the team because I think he's awesome and can hit pretty hard at Ttar and other threats.



    Deoxys-S @ Expert Belt
    Trait: Pressure
    EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe
    Naive Nature (+Spe, -SDef)
    - Psychic
    - Ice Beam
    - Thunderbolt
    - SuperPower

    Not sure whether he's allowed or not but if so, he's basically the cleaner, outspeeding everything, revenge killer I think is the word?

    But yeah I'm pretty sure theres a few weaknesses with this team, but hey, thats why you guys are here to help!

    Make Ferrothorn your lead and give it this set;

    Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
    Trait: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 252 HP / 48 Def / 208 SpD
    Ivs: 0 Speed
    Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spe)
    - Spikes
    - Leech Seed / Stealth Rock
    - Power Whip
    - Gyro Ball / Thunderwave / Protect

    Gliscor wants;

    Gliscor @ Toxic orb
    Trait : Poison Heal
    Impish Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    Evs: 252 HP / 184 Def / 72 Spd
    - Earthquake
    - Protect / Taunt
    - Toxic / Taunt
    - Ice Fang / Facade

    Why is Salamence Naive? Make it Jolly and give it Outrage over Dragon Claw and put those 4 Ev's from Special attack into Hp. Why have you got those Ev's? You have no special attack's on it.

    Speed Boost Blaziken is banned. |: So take it out.

    Since you're going on a defensive root for Starmie [Lulwut?] give it Scald over Surf.

    Deoxys Speed + Defense forms are aloud, however Attack & Normal are not.

      Ahh thanks! Sorry it's set out a bit shoddy I was rushing I probably messed up most the Ev spreads. Could Lucario be a suitable replacement for Blaziken?

      Mmm, possibly, although that leaves you with 1 Pokemon with a 4x Weakness to Fire and 2x Weakness to it. \: Although Starmie & Salamence can cover that. I say go for it.

      Use this set;

      Lucario @ Life Orb
      Trait : Inner Focus
      Jolly Nature (-Spa; +Spe)
      Evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
      - Swords Dance
      - Close Combat
      - Extremespeed
      - Ice Punch / Crunch

      Enjoy.

          I belive Salamence is UBER...

          Thankfully, Dragonite gotten new toys in the 5th gen, like Hurricane & Marvel Scale.

          I don't know a good Dragonite set for gen 5...
          Sorry...

          But if I find one, I'll post it here.

          According to our banlist Salamence is not uber. Dragonite has a completely different niche than Salamence, with Marvel Scale, the ability to be a fantastic weather abuse with Hurricane/Surf/Thunder, abuse of priority in Extremespeed, etc. Salamence and Dragonite generally provide two different roles entirely and where their jobs could overlap, really one outclasses the other (and Salamence is by far the better DD sweeper).

            I was going to go with Lucario but I've decided Gallades a much more suitable replacement;


            Gallade @ Life Orb / Expert Belt?
            Adamant Nature
            Ev's: 252 Atk / 4 Hp / 252 Spe
            - Swords dance
            - Psycho cut
            - Close combat
            - Ice Punch

            Although now I'm wondering if I should swap Deoxys for something else to give more type variety like Jolteon?
