    This is my shoddy battle team.
    Infernape/Life Orb
    Blaze/Nature:Adamant/Ev - Att 255 Spd 255
    Fake Out
    Flare Blitz
    Close Combat
    Stealth Rock
    Has been working well for me but not as well. He always does this: Fake Out+Stealth rock and then faints to something. But when he's alive it's very useful. Looking for another good lead.


    Gengar/Lefties
    Levitate/Nature:Modest/EV - Sp.att 255 Spd 255
    Destiny Bond
    Toxic
    Protect
    Confuse Ray
    This thing hasn't done anything for me. Destiny Bond usually fails because the opponent switches and I die to T-tar's Sandstorm.


    Starmie/Expert Belt
    Natural Cure/Nature:Modest/EV Sp.Att 255 Spd 255
    Surf
    Thunder Bolt
    Psychic
    Reflect
    Mixed Attacker. People who think Starmie is a bEaSt, You are right. No words.

    Tyranitar/Expert Belt
    Sand Stream/Nature:Adamant/EV Sp.Def 255 Def 255
    Stone Edge
    Crunch
    Thunder Punch
    SuperPower
    This thing is my tank. It survived 5 Surfs from No Boost Starmie. BeAsT.

    Heracross/Toxic Orb
    Guts/Nature:Adamant/EV Spd 255 Att 255
    Swords Dance
    Facade
    Megahorn
    Close Combat
    This thing sweeped 5 pokes after 2 SD's. Want to keep.

    Flygon/Expert Belt
    Levitate/Nature:Rash/EV - Sp. att 255 Spd 255
    Fire Blast
    Draco Meteor
    U-Turn
    Earthquake
    It's not as good as I expected but will do.

    So this is my team. Tell me mah weaknesses. Example battle:

    Rules: Ladder Match, Sleep Clause, Freeze Clause, OHKO Clause, Evasion Clause, Species Clause, Strict Damage Clause, Soul Dew Clause

      Changes and comments in RED
      BTW I'm fairly new to team rating but I'll give it my best

      Aerodactyl/Focus Sash
      Pressure/Nature:Jolly/EV - Att 252 Spd 252 Hp 6
      Stealth Rock
      Taunt
      Stone Edge/Earthquake
      Protect/Stone Edge/Earthquake
      Some people say Gen 5 Ruined Aerodactyl as a lead, but I disagree...
      You will outspeed nearly all pokes apart from Electrode, Deoxys and Ninjask. However the one to be afraid of is electrode. If he is sent out first (which is doubtful because I have never seen an Electrode lead) hit him with an earthquake, then when he has been dealt with send out your stealth rock and use protect as a use for your pressure ability (mainly for strong moves like Hydro Pump ect. with only 5 pp)



      Gengar/Lefties
      Levitate/Nature:Modest/EV - Sp.att 252 Spd 252 Hp 4
      Shadow Ball
      Focus Blast
      Dream Eater
      Hypnosis
      This is my moveset for my Gengar, I use it to cut peoples flow with a hypnosis and just try to outspeed dark types and hit with a Focus Blast


      Starmie/Expert Belt
      Natural Cure/Nature:Modest/EV Sp.Att 252 Spd 252 Hp 6
      Surf
      Thunder Bolt
      Psychic
      Reflect
      If it works don't change it

      Tyranitar/Expert Belt
      Sand Stream/Nature:Adamant/EV Sp.Def 252 Def 252 Hp 6
      Stone Edge
      Crunch
      Thunder Punch
      SuperPower
      Strong tank :D

      Heracross/Toxic Orb
      Guts/Nature:Adamant/EV Spd 252 Att 252 Hp 6
      Swords Dance
      Facade
      Megahorn
      Close Combat
      Again, this is a good moveset

      Flygon/Choice Scarf
      Levitate/Nature:Jolly/EV Atk 252 Spd 252 SpA 6
      Earthquake
      Outrage
      Fire Blast
      Stone Edge
      I found this on the internets and was like 'this is an awesome moveset :O'
      Earthquake and Outrage prove really well as STAB moves and are hard hitting, And Stone Edge and Fire Blast prove good covers who resist/are immune to Outrage/Earthquake (for example Bronzong


      Oh and if you are wondering why I have decreased all of your EV's from 255 + 255 to 252 + 252 + 6 it is because of the calculation means that you waste 4 EV's moving one stat upto 255 or something... IDK but there is something important about 252...

      It also helps boost a diiferent stat :D

      Is this a Gen IV team, or a Gen V team? Anyway, here are my suggestions (Gen IV):

      Change Infernape's set to:
      -Fake Out
      -Stealth Rock
      -Overheat/Fire Blast
      -Close Combat
      Nature: Hasty/Naive
      EVs: 64 Atk/252 SAtk/192 Spe
      Item: Focus Sash

      Give this Gengar set a shot. Your current set is too gimmicky, and the suggested set is too risky, since Hypnosis + Dream Eater is easily countered by switching:
      -Substitute
      -Disable/Pain Split
      -Shadow Ball
      -Focus Blast
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

      Make Starmie your Rapid Spinner; Reflect isn't worth it:
      -Surf
      -Thunderbolt
      -Rapid Spin
      -Recover/Ice Beam
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 HP/4 SDef/252 Spe (if using Recover) or 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe (if using Ice Beam)
      Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
      Ability: Natural Cure

      I'd give Flygon the Choice Scarf.

      I'd make the most out of Tyranitar's massive movepool with this:
      -Flamethrower/Fire Blast
      -Ice Beam
      -Dark Pulse/Crunch/Thunderbolt/Stone Edge
      -Superpower
      Nature: Hasty
      EVs: 56 Atk/252 SAtk/200 Spe
      Item: Expert Belt

      If this is Gen V, go with what I suggested, except:

      Make Tyranitar your lead:
      -Stealth Rock
      -Fire Blast
      -Crunch
      -Ice Beam/Superpower
      Nature: Sassy
      EVs: 252 HP/280 SAtk/76 SDef
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Sand Stream

      Replace Flygon with Hydreigon:
      -Draco Meteor
      -Fire Blast
      -Focus Blast
      -U-turn/Dark Pulse
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Scarf

      With the Gen V, changes, use this Infernape set:
      -Overheat/Fire Blast
      -Close Combat
      -Grass Knot/U-turn
      -Stone Edge/Mach Punch
      Nature: Hasty/Naive
      EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Life Orb
      Ability: Blaze

        Well, personally I dont like choice scarfs cause you have to switch to make a new move so...
        BTW I decided to make infernape a mixape and have a claydol lead.
        Claydol/Light Clay
        Explosion
        Light Screen
        Stealth rock
        Rapid Spin

        I just randomly chose this guy. He's been good in the past day but I see many Metagross leads and leads that explosion just won't OHKO.

          If you're going to use Claydol as a lead, give him a Choice Band and Trick over Light Screen >_>
          Impish with HP and DEF build.
