        Thanks. I just love the black color scheme of my Haxorus.

        Charcoal doesn't do Volcarona much, aside from boosting Fiery Dance. You'll have to use Leftovers to heal passively. Also, that set you're using is better suited to a Sun team, when Morning Sun will almost totally heal you. This set is better in non-Sun teams:
        -Quiver Dance
        -Fiery Dance
        -Bug Buzz
        -Rest
        Nature: Modest
        EVs: 160 HP/252 SAtk/96 Spe
        Item: Chesto Berry

          Thanks for the advice. I just replaced my Volcarona with my Chestorest Volcarona.

            You can put 4 other evs into hp too. Landorus should use Hidden Power Ice over Hammer Arm to beat other Landorus and Gliscor.

            You should replace Dual Chop or Outrage on Haxorus with Dragon Dance or Swords Dance because Haxorus needs only one STAB.

            Cloyster use Focus Sash over White Herb because even without the drop of stats, Cloyster can't take a Special hit.

              SD and DD would be useless as he is using a Choice Band. Dual Chop is there for breaking sashes and sturdy, and subs, and Outrage is there for pretty much wasting whatever doesn't resist it. And both of those on one of Smogon's sets so it's redundant for a reason.

                  I would use HP Ice. The only problem is the fact that my Landorus has HP Ghost instead. As for the 4 extra EVs, I don't really bother to mention what they're invested in. 1 point is just too miniscule to bother mentioning.

                    Your Haxorus is good, but it's going to struggle behind... well, almost everything. I would recommend giving it a choice scarf with Rock Slide instead of Dual Chop.

                    Surf over Hydro Pump with your Cloyster. You're going to want the reliability after setting up a Shell Smash.


                    Really my only suggestions.
