    Hey all. This is a hyper offensive team I made not that long ago. Its focused mainly around two, DD Dragonite and SD Lucario.

    The ideal situaton would be for Dnite to set up early game and cause huge amounts of damage to my opponent. Then send in Lucario and let him clean up late game. So without further ado lets met the rest of the team


    Infernape (M) @Focus Sash Trait: Blaze
    EV's: 252Atk/252Speed/4HP
    Jolly nature (+Speed -SpAtk)
    Taunt
    Stealth Rock
    Close Combat
    U-Turn

    This is a pretty unique set on Infernape. Infernape more often tahn not leads and tries to get up Stealtn Rock ASAP. Taunt is an interesting option but it works well agaist other pokemon wanting to get up hazzards early game. Close combat provides me with a powerful stab move and U-turn means I can switch out on bad match up's or gain some offensive momentum.


    Espeon (F) @Light Clay Trait: Magic Bounce
    EV's: 252HP/252Speed/4Def
    Timid (+Speed -Atk)
    Reflect
    Light Screen
    Psychic
    Hidden Power (ground)

    Espeon is here to provide support to my sweepers. With duel screens in play it gives my sweepers a great amount of support to set up. Espeon also helps at keeping tha hazzards away which is a huge plus for Dragonite. Psychic is for stab while Hidden power ground is to nail Heatran.


    Gengar (F) @Leftovers Trait: Levitate
    EV's: 252SpAtk/252Speed/4HP
    Substitute
    Disable
    Shadow Ball
    Focus Blast

    Gengar was chosen to add some special offense as well as speed to this team. Substitute well because its gengar, disable to hur pokemon such as conkeldurr who only have one move to hit me, it's also useful at disabling pursuits. Shadow ball for stab and along side Focus blast provides perfect coverage.


    Scizor (M) @Life Orb Trait: Technician
    EV's: 252HP/40Atk/216SpDef
    Adamant (+Atk -SpAtk)
    Sword Dance
    Bullet Punch
    Bug Bite
    Roost

    Bulky SD scizor works well in this team. With screen support Scizor can set up multiple SD and proceed to sweep with his powerful priority in bullet punch. Bug Bite provides duel stab and roost is there to heal off life orb damage as well as any damage taken before by scizor.


    Dragonite (M) @Lum Berry Trait: Multiscale
    EV's: 252Atk/252Speed/4HP
    Adamant (+Atk -Spe)
    Dragon Dance
    Outrage
    Fire Punch
    ExtremeSpeed

    Dragonite is one of the biggest threats in the game. He is also one of the best pokemon to set up early game and even his checks/counters take huge amounts of damage after a few DD. Outrage is chosen as the stab move, Fire punch to hit most steel's and Extreme speed provides powerful priority.



    Lucario (M) @Life Orb Trait: Inner Focus
    EV's: 252Atk/252Speed/4HP
    Adamant (+Atk -SpAtk)
    Sword Dance
    Close Combat
    Crunch
    Extreme Speed

    Like I said Lucario is one of this teams main sweeper's and is a very dangerous pokemon to stall teams. Also his great typing and with the support of screens he can find many opportunities to set up. After a SD his attacks reaches sky high levels. Close Combat was chosen as stab move as choice, Crunch for coverage and extreme speed as priority.

    Some other optiosn iv though of is replacing Gengar with either Nasty Plot Celebi, Sub Hydreigon or Rotom Wash. I chose Gengar becuase he was faster but am happy to replace him with other special attackers.

    Iv also thought of just relying on Espeon to set up entry hazzards and Replace infernape with a special attacker again.

    Note If I was to replace anyone with Rotom-W id probably swap Scizor to a Chice Band set to complete the Volt-Turn combo.

    May I recommend a moveset for Infernape? PlatinumDude recommends this set too.

    Hasty / Naive nature
    Life Orb
    Blaze
    EVs: 252 Attack, 4 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed
    - Overheat / Fire Blast
    - Close Combat
    - Grass Knot / U-turn
    - Stone Edge / Mach Punch

    Hasty and Naive are recommended natures cos Speed is Infernape's main selling point. It's one of the best OU Mixed Attackers, having good Physical and Special attacks.

      Thanks and yes that is a good set. The only problem I have with changing infernape set is I dont have any reliable way to get up Stealth Rock which is very important in a HO team. I mean id still have Espeon to try and bounce them back but I wouldnt call that reliable.

        on gengar replace focus blast with HP fighting for better accuracy, you dont want to miss every attack and have gengar die from a dark/ghost/psychic move in an instant.

          I personally prefer focus blast over HP fighting. Its so much more powerful and im happy to take the drop of accuracy in return for the power. But thanks for the suggestion

          If you can't set up early in the game, possibly a spinner may be of use for Dragonite so it is even worse to face w/ Multiscale? Since you're open to replacing Gengar - Starmie is faster, but weaker sPA-wise, however has better coverage moves, especially ice beam to take out dragons that may get in the way of your Dragonite's sweep.
