    Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
    - Leech Seed
    - Gyro Ball
    - Protect
    - Power Whip

    Jellicent (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Water Absorb
    EVs: 248 HP / 216 Def / 46 Spd
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Surf
    - Toxic
    - Recover
    - Taunt

    Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
    Trait: Poison Heal
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef
    Hardy Nature
    - Baton Pass
    - Substitute
    - Agility
    - Swords Dance

    Jirachi @ Leftovers
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 202 HP / 56 Def / 252 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Iron Defense
    - Calm Mind
    - Substitute
    - Psychic

    Ursaring (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Quick Feet
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Fire Punch
    - Stone Edge
    - Earthquake
    - Gunk Shot

    Alakazam (M) @ Focus Sash
    Trait: Synchronize
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Psychic
    - Signal Beam
    - Shadow Ball
    - Energy Ball

    The idea of this team is to remove fight types with alakazam who is set up a bit like a revenge killer and jirachi who is running a mixed wall set witch I have found to be very effective. when the fight types are gone. glisicor comes out gets a sword dance and a agility off then passes the boosts to usaring who proceeds to sweep.
    Should a pokemon i can't stop come in either ferrothorn or jeliicent comes in. those sets are made to spread paralysis and toxic respectively.

    Rumble rock is back, expect a BETA soon.

      It's Ferrothorn.

      Why are you using a defensive nature with defensive Iv's on Ursaring? ): And it has Quick feet but no Toxic/Burn orb? ;o;

      Ursaring isn't exactly the best Pokemon to base a team around. \:

      A few things to note before I even try to think about rating this:

      Like dragonomega said, Ursaring sucks. You're not using it right, either. No STAB? It hits about as hard as a Timid Specs Dugtrio using Dig with that set. Really, Ursaring is a really bad Pokemon to build a team around - and if you wanted to, I'd recommend at the very least going into a lower tier so it at least has some chance at being competitive. Your Ursaring set is outclassed by Granbull right now, seriously. :( ...wait. 252 Def/252 SpD? How did I not even see the spread? Let me fix my previous statement - with that spread, you hit about as hard as a LO Spinda. :(

      Alakazam doesn't beat Fighting-types at all. It comes in on say Conkeldurr's Drain Punch (and perhaps its Payback if it outpredicts you) and takes it almost all the way down to sash, and then dies to Mach Punch. How useful was 'Zam, again? Gliscor stuffs Fighting-types better than 'Zam does and you even have it in your team. ;o;

      Agility/SD-pass Gliscor is bad. Run Ice Fang > Agility and Taunt > Baton Pass, imo. It also wants a 252hp/252def set.

      You've got a little bit to understand about EVs and how they make a Pokemon's build more effective. If you have any questions about sets, you're free to post them here or in the Request-a-Moveset thread that's stickied in the main forum. :) Once you make/test these changes come back and I'll see if you need any further help from me. :3
