    Hello! I'm new to competitive play, but i'm starting with weak pokemon and it seems to be working out!
    I use a jolly ninjask with focus sash and with 248 EVs on HP/8 EVs on Attack/252 EVs on speed. It has speed boost as its ability and its moves are swords dance/leech life/toxic/baton pass. I have other three physical attackers on my team so i can use baton pass.
    Hitmonchan with choice band and Adamant 248 EVs on HP/252 EVs on Attack/8 EVs on Special Defense. Its ability is iron fists, and its moves are thunder punch/bullet punch/fire punch/bulk up
    Furret (lol). It has leftovers and is Jolly with 252 EVs on Attack/4 EVs on Special Defense/252 EVs on speed and its moves are coil/fire punch/brick break/return.
    Zebstrika. Again, choice band, and Wild Charge/Flame Charge/Pursuit/Stomp and 252 EVs on Attack/4 EVs on Special Defense/252 EVs on speed
    Armaldo. Leftovers, 248 EVs on HP/252 EVs on Attack/8 EVs on defense and Earthquake/Stealth Rock/Brick Break/Aqua Jet.
    And a Tentacruel, why not, for some coverage. It is Modest with 252 EVs on Special Attack/4 EVs on Special Defense and 252 EVs on Speed.
    With this team i was able to take down a team of rayquaza, reshiram, and other ubers.
    Again, i'm pretty new to this stuff, so i wanted to hear if i have to change something here or if everything is alright.

    I understand that you may be wishing to use weak mons as you said in your post however the majority of the mons that you use are outclassed by many other mons even for their respective usefulness in non-competitive play.
    One thing that i wish to clear up, Baton pass is banned in Non-Cartridge play.
    I will assume that you are using cartridge play.
    if i may be blunt......The team also does not look to fair well against standard competitive play.
    I would advise against the use of two choice bands having flexibility in your move choice would be helpful when you baton pass into one of those mons.
    Also bulk up on a banded mon is counter intuitive as it will do nothing.

    Define "weak Pokemon", and why you want to use them. Also, are you playing on Showdown or 3DS?

        I know baton pass is banned, so i just go with anything goes. It's because i like using pokemon that can support each other. But i will take your advice. Thank you!
