    Hey, I just wanted to let you know that if this is a competitive team, it'd be really useful if you could post the movesets, EVs, item, nature, etc of your planned Pokemon. It would make team rating significantly easier - we can't just rate a team when all we know is what Pokemon are in it. For all I know, they all just know Splash!

        I do not see the point in Ludicolo knowing rain dance if it is your only water pokemon.
        Also, I don't like Salamence's EV spread. Draco Meteor will lower the spec attack after use and its the only special attack. I would ditch it, invest 252 in attack instead and replace it with a move like crunch for type coverage. I have to go soon so I'll comment on the rest of the team later.

        Crunch doesn't offer a lot of coverage. Use Earthuquake or Brick Break instead. (this Salamence variant was seen in Gen IV to be used with Rayquaza)

        Or if this is the wallbreaking set you're looking for:
        -Draco Meteor
        -Fire Blast
        -Brick Break/Earthquake
        -Outrage/Roost
        Nature: Rash/Naive
        EVs: 116 Atk/252 SAtk/176 Spe
        Item: Life Orb
        Ability: Intimidate

        So I'm thinking that this is a Gen V team since Salamence is banned in OU in Gen IV. If that's the case, then there are a few things I wanted to mention...

        Firstly Explosion got nerfed in the transition from Gen V to Gen IV and you should avoid running it if you can. It's a really weak attack now. :( Ludicolo + Tyranitar is really ineffective, as well as the fact that Ludicolo's rain weakens Salamence's wallbreaking potential with Fire Blast. I'd rather use a different Pokémon than try to run Ludicolo because it's likely just going to mess with your team rather than aid it. Last thing: if this is a Gen V team, Bronzong is definitely not supposed to be setting up Screens - I'd rather use something incredibly efficient like Deoxys-S to do that. Instead, I'd rather use Zong's standard set to help check things like Sand sweepers (ie Excadrill and Landorus).

        Bronzong @ Leftovers
        Ability: Levitate
        Nature: Sassy (+SpD, -Spe)
        EVs: 252 HP / 84 Atk / 80 Def / 92 SpD - IVs: 2 Spe (for HP Ice)
        - Stealth Rock
        - Gyro Ball
        - Hidden Power [Ice]
        - Earthquake

        Also keep in mind that if this is a Gen IV team, most of my comments are null and void though you'll have to find a replacement for Salamence since it is banned in Gen IV. Good luck with your team!
