    Ok. So i started competetive battling at PO. Im kinda new there and not very experienced but i managed to put a team together with some help.
    Please rate it, and help me improve it in any way possible :3


    Latias / Levitate / Timid / Leftovers
    EV's : 252HP / 252Speed / 4SpA

    Calm Mind
    Recover
    Dragon Pulse
    Hidden Power

    The first of my dragons, i decided to make it bulky after some advice from people, after a few calm minds it can easily take down multiple pokemon.



    Latios / Levitate / Timid / Choice Specs
    EV's : 252SpA / 252Speed / 4HP

    Draco Meteor
    Thunderbolt
    Surf
    Psyshock

    My second dragon, i use him to finish any pokemon that i couldnt kill with my previous one.



    Gliscor / Poison Heal / Impish / Toxic Orb
    EV's : 252HP / 200SpD / 56Speed

    Swords Dance
    Earthquake
    Ice Fang
    Taunt

    I love this guy. When theres no more ice or water pokemon on the opposing team i switch out to this guy, get a couple of sword dances up and just earthquake everything i come across too. I think there is a defensive set to him aswell but i prefer this one. Suggestions are ofc welcome though.



    Ferrothorn / Iron Barbs / Sassy / Leftovers
    EV's : 252HP / 168DEF / 88SpA

    Spikes
    Leech Seed
    Gyro Ball
    Power Whip

    Oh my wall. Can't go without it. I usually start with this guy if the other person dosent have any fire pokemon. Even if he does this guy can take hits like a monster. With leech seed and leftovers its incredbile hard to take down if you dont have any super effective moves. And the amazing iron barbs take the opponents pokemon down really quickly. Gyro Ball for any annoying pokemon and power whip for those pesky politoeds/starmies. Im not sure about the EV's maybe theres a better option, suggestions welcome :3



    Scizor / Technician / Jolly / Life Orb
    EV's : 252Att / 252Speed / 4SpD

    Bullet Punch
    Superpower
    Swords Dance
    Bug Bite

    Ok, so we all know how annoying this guy can get. With only one weakness and the amazing technician priority bullet punch it can take out pokemon really quickly. Even one swords dance is enough to take out entire teams. Bug bite for the stupid psychic pokemon and the great superpower for the other threats.



    Politoed / Drizzle / Timid / Choice Scarf
    EV's : 252SpA / 252Speed / 4HP

    Hydro Pump
    Ice Beam
    Hidden Power Grass
    Perish Song

    A scarfed politoed uses hydro pump in the rain. Ohhh the damage. To pokemon that take normal damage from water attacks, it pretty much always takes 50% + their health. The HP Grass to take out opposing water pokemon and the ice beam for those pesky dragons.

      What's Latias' Hidden Power type?

      I wouldn't recommend running both Lati twins on the same team. Since Politoed is on there, I think you need another Rain abuser alongside it, like Dragonite or Rotom-W (one of these can go over one of the Lati twins):

      Dragonite:
      -Hurricane
      -Aqua Tail
      -ExtremeSpeed
      -Roost/Superpower
      Nature: Rash/Quiet
      EVs: 252 Atk/252 SAtk/4 Spe
      Item: Life Orb

      or
      -Hurricane
      -Dragon Tail
      -Thunder
      -Roost
      Nature: Calm
      EVs: 252 HP/108 SAtk/148 SDef
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Multiscale

      Rotom-W:
      -Hydro Pump
      -Thunder
      -Hidden Power (Ice)
      -Trick
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Specs

      Ferrothorn doesn't feel right. Why would you invest EVs in its Special Attack when it's terrible, and hardly ever uses it (unless it's a typo)? The recommended spread is 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef.

      Scizor is rather slow, so Jolly isn't useful, unless you're using a Choice Scarf; however, Bullet Punch makes up for its low Speed. Change it to Adamant so that it has more power.

        a rapid spinner might be needed, Incase toxic spikes, sr, etc..
        Oh, and i don't like politoed simply cause you drizzle, and faster water types might take advantage. Ferrothorn being a counter, but still. Politoed drizzle isn't to my liking. *im new to competitive, so don't take my word for it*
        Just making suggestions.
        The rest i really like, though
