    Special wall/physical damage dealer.

    NONE of these pokemon are hacked. I was accused of that with the OU team I made a while back. I'm simply a perfectionist who wants the absolute best I can get, and I put the effort required to get those results into my team. I'm glad to say I'm proud of this team and I'm confident in it and the time I spent on making it. I take pride in all the teams I make.

    After reading some feedback I've try to make some changes and was wondering what you guys thought about. Here they are.

    1.) Replace Cloyster with a Miltank with heal bell, milk drink, body slam, and stealth rock.
    Body slam can provide some much needed paralysis help due to my team's lack of speed and It can take some hits too. It can set up stealth rock and provide heal bell support.

    2.) Replace Ursaring with a Sceptile with swords dance, leafblade, Aerial Ace, and Stome Edge.
    It's faster then quick feet Ursaring and aftwe a swords dance does more damage. Aerial ace provides the fighting coverage I need and stone edge can xover flying and fire types. And it can deal some good damage with leafblade.

    3.) Replace Steelix with Donphan because donphan works better hahaha

    I was also wondering if you thought swapping out my houndoom with a Rapidash that knows hypnosis, sunny day, flamethrower, and Solarbeam would be a good idea? It looks great on paper but I'be never tested it. He could put something to sleep, sunny day on the switch, and sweep with flamethrower and 1 turn solarbeam.

    I believe the first 3 would be great improvements and I already have the Sceptile and Miltank and the Donphan would only take me about 2-3 weeks to get. As for the Rapidash that's just something I thought sounded interesting. I've been told to keep Houndoom (which I'll probably end.up doing if people don't like that Rapidash), but that Rapidash looks great on paper but It's never been tested.

      . you have 2 water types and no Electric defense. I think Lapras can learn an Electric attack.
      Cloyster and Lapras have a Fighting weakness and you dont have a Psychic/Flying attack.
      You'll have a hard time against the Fighting types. Nidoking is the only one who has a Resistance to it. Try putting Aerial Ace in your team

        This looks neat, but I think a huge portion of your team is going to be hurt by fighting types. Either a standard Guts Swellow or a Special Altaria build will help alleviate that problem if Nidoking gets taken out too early.

        Altaria @ Choice Specs
        Ability: Natural Cure
        Nature: Modest
        EVs: 252SpA/108HP/148Spe
        -Perish Song
        -Draco Meteor
        -Fire Blast
        -Ice Beam
        Altaria is resistant to some of the biggest threats to your team. You should be switching him in on threats and threaten with a Perish Song or start hammering through the armor with Draco Meteor. Usually, fighters in UU tier hover around 50-87 base speed with Toxicroak being your greatest threat with Sucker Punch. A Perish Song will miss that blow, affording you time to get him out of there, and coming back in on him with Fire Blast will clear away a Dry Skin 'Croak with time to spare.

        I'd also replace Steelix with Donphan so you have Rapid Spin and Stealth Rock support in one Pokemon:
        -Rapid Spin
        -Stealth Rock
        -Assurance/Ice Shard
        Nature: Adamant
        EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Spe
        Item: Leftovers

        Since you have Donphan as a Rapid Spinner, you can use Drapion instead of Cloyster to set up Toxic Spikes:
        -Toxic Spikes
        Nature: Jolly
        EVs: 32 HP/252 Atk/224 Spe
        Item: Lum Berry/Leftovers
        Ability: Sniper

        However, with this build, your team will have a huge Ground weakness, so replacing Houndoom with the Altaria set mentioned earlier might be a good idea.
