    So me and my friend decided to do a smogon NU battle. He makes a team that absolutely wrecks mine. He tells me that he will keep his team while I make a counter to it. I have tried and failed many, many teams that just can't beat it. Please keep in mind that I don't know his exact movesets, but I know most of them due to battling the team numerous times:

    Persian @ Silk Scarf
    252 attack/252 speed
    -Fake Out

    This is usually his lead, but he switches the lead slot around with Medicham or Sandslash to throw me off guard. This thing is very annoying, the boosted fake outs and returns hurt a lot.

    Medicham @ Life Orb
    Pure Power
    252 attack/252 speed
    -Fake Out
    -Bullet Punch
    -Hi Jump Kick
    -Zen Headbutt

    This is pretty much the main powerhouse of his team. This thing has swept through almost any team I throw at it. The number one threat to deal with.

    Gardevoir @ Leftovers
    252 HP/4 defense/252 special defense
    -Heal Bell

    Definitely the most annoying thing to beat on his team, except for maybe Shuckle. Soaks anything special, cures the team of both status ailments and health, and stops physical attackers with wisp.

    Sandslash @ Leftovers
    Sand Veil
    252 Hp/252 defense
    -Stealth Rock
    -Rapid Spin
    -Night Slash

    This thing is really bulky and for some reason can take some special hits too. Rocks are always a nuisance, and it has pretty good coverage.

    Kingler @ Choice Band/Life Orb (I thought I saw recoil, or maybe I'm crazy)
    Hyper Cutter
    32 HP/252 attack/224 speed
    -Rock Slide

    This hits really hard, but hasn't really giving me too much problems. I still think it's a very viable threat though, it almost swept a team once.

    Shuckle @ Leftovers
    248 Hp/252 defense/8 special defense

    Really annoying, I swear it stalled me for almost an hour once. Taunt shuts it down, but it always seems to come back later to haunt my team.

    So this is his team, it's either a really good team or I'm just horrible at NU. I really need help making an exact team to counter. I might be wrong on some EV's, but I think I got most of it right. We're only allowed to use smogon NU tier pokemon, but I only need a team that counters this one, I'm not gonna use it for other battles, so ridiculous movesets to only counter this team are allowed.

    Wait, so this isn't your team?

    We don't build teams for you here, sorry. If you want to give us a team to help rate it then that would be fine, but no one's going to bend over backwards and make you a team. :(
