    hey guys, I'm new to the site and I'm posting my first competitive team for a while. I haven't played since like 8th grade, but I figured I should post on this forum to learn some new metagame changes and also to get some advice on how to improve the team. It's a sandstorm team, and I could use some comments and criticism. Thanks!

    Forretress: You're (almost) complete Taunt bait, so I'd replace Sandstorm with Earthquake or Gyro Ball. Hippowdon already gets your Sandstorm going.

    Bronzong: I know the merits of Macho Brace, but I think it really needs Leftovers recovery (unless you're going with item clause)

      Maybe instead of Macho Brace, you could use a Laggy Tail.

      They do completely different things. The Lagging Tail only makes the user always go last. The Macho Brace simply cuts your Speed, increasing Bronzong's Gyro Ball's power against faster opponents.
