Please rate this team:
Hippowdon (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 200 Def / 56 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Slack Off
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Stone Edge

The evs are to keep Hippowdon living for as long as possible. Slack off to regain health. Earthquake with Stone Edge owns everything. Finally, Stealth Rock to cripple teams.

Shuckle (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Rest
- Encore
- Toxic
- Protect

I love this guy. He walls everything except for steel types. Toxic and Protect to stall everything except for steel types. Rest to regain health and Encore to lock a pokemon into a move for my sweepers and to stop baton pass teams.

Ferrothorn (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SDef
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Gyro Ball
- Power Whip
- Bulldoze
- Explosion

This set kills almost everything with one hit. ( Except for extremely defensive pokemon ) If Choice Band isn't an option, life orb will work.

Sigilyph (M) @ Flame Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Psycho Shift
- Roost
- Thunder Wave
- Air Slash

Epic. All I got to say.

Excadrill (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 104 HP / 252 Atk / 152 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide

My sweeper.

Gastrodon (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

Epic tank.
This is my signature.

Togekiss, Dunsparce and Jirachi can make better use of para-flinch because of Serene Grace. Sigilyph can annoy the opponent even more with this:
-Cosmic Power
-Stored Power
-Psycho Shift
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/200 Def/56 Spe
Item: Flame Orb
Ability: Magic Guard

Excadrill needs max Speed so it can outspeed as much as it can in Sandstorm.

You can also consider Roar on Hippowdon for phazing.
