    Umbreon @ Leftovers
    Trait: Synchronize
    EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 Def
    Calm Nature
    - Heal Bell
    - Wish
    - Toxic
    - Protect
    My Umbreon is the cleric and toxic staller of my team. I rely on him to set down toxic and heal my other pokes. I then use protect to my advantage during stall sessions while I heal with wish and watch my foe's health dwindle down!


    Sharpedo @ Life Orb
    Trait: Speed Boost
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - Aqua Jet
    - Waterfall
    - Night Slash
    - Zen Headbutt
    Speed Boost Sharpedo is awesome! He out speed pokes with prankster with aqua jet (sableye) and can often times wreck through teams. I went with night slash rather then crunch for the crit boost.


    Slowking @ Leftovers
    Trait: Regenerator
    EVs: 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
    Bold Nature
    - Calm Mind
    - Scald
    - Psyshock
    - Slack Off
    Slowking is my tanky attacker who is great with dealing with the mass amounts of fighting types and to deal with Chandelure. If I can set up with calm mind I can sweep through teams too.


    Amoonguss @ Leftovers
    Trait: Regenerator
    EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
    Calm Nature
    - Giga Drain
    - Spore
    - Hidden Power [Fighting]
    - Synthesis
    Amoonguss is my sleep ***** who is also capable of dealing out damage. I use spore to put them to sleep and sap health with giga drain.

    Machamp @ Leftovers
    Trait: No Guard
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - DynamicPunch
    - Bullet Punch
    - Ice Punch
    - Stone Edge
    Machamp is an al out attacking power house and no guard is a great combo with dynamic punch. Stone edge to get rid of those pesky Heracrosses and bullet punch for priority.


    Ambipom @ Life Orb
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
    Jolly Nature
    - Fake Out
    - Last Resort
    Fake out last resort sweeper. He can deal with majority of my opponents pokes.

    Umbreon is currently Taunt bait. Replace Toxic or Protect with Foul Play so that Umbreon can use an opponent's Attack stat against it.

    Crunch is still the better option over Night Slash on Sharpedo because chancing on critical hits isn't reliable, and the Defense drops could help in achieving KOs; also, the 10 BP loss isn't worth it:
    -Waterfall
    -Crunch
    -Earthquake (it's here for Steels that don't care about Waterfall and/or Crunch)
    -Protect (guarantees that you get a Speed Boost)
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb
    Ability: Speed Boost

    The main difference between Slowbro and Slowking is their defensive stats; Slowbro has higher Defense than Special Defense and Slowking is the opposite. In UU, Slowbro is the better choice because while both Slowbro and Slowking share the same typing, and hence the same resistances (which are mostly physical in nature), Slowbro has a better time utilizing said resistances because of its higher Defense:

    Slowbro:
    -Calm Mind
    -Scald
    -Psyshock
    -Slack Off
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 248 HP/244 Def/16 SAtk
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Regenerator

    Amoonguss is better off using a physically defensive spread to help check Fighting opponents more easily:
    -Spore
    -Giga Drain
    -Clear Smog/Sludge Bomg
    -Synthesis/Stun Spore
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
    Item: Black Sludge
    Ability: Regenerator

    or
    -Spore
    -Giga Drain
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Hidden Power (Fire)/Stun Spore
    Nature: Modest
    EVs: 120 HP/128 Def/252 SAtk/8 Spe
    Item: Black Sludge
    Ability: Regenerator

    I think Machamp makes better use of Substitute to ease prediction:
    -Substitute
    -DynamicPunch
    -Stone Edge
    -ThunderPunch/Toxic
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 212 HP/252 Atk/44 Spe
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Guts

    Fake Out + Last Resort isn't a good way to use Ambipom. While it's tempting, it's not recommended because Ghosts wall the crap out of Ambipom:
    -Fake Out
    -Return/Double Hit
    -Low Kick/Low Sweep
    -Beat Up/Shadow Claw
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb
    Ability: Technician

    or
    -Return/Double Hit
    -Low Kick/Low Sweep
    -Beat Up/Pursuit
    -U-turn/Switcheroo
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Band
    Ability: Technician
