I hear Moltres and Eggy make a good team? these two start. and play out their sunny shenanigans... Lum Berry Kingdra starters seem to rain on my parade a bit... though if played right this combo can rape things.

Flygon (M) @ Lum Berry ** Lord Falieson
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Protect
- Quick Attack
- Hidden Power [Rock]

HP rock because its power is sooo lame in 2v2. doesn't even OHKO moltres. the only reason to use rockslide is for sheddy... but meh. I was debating using HP ghost or HP bug... or is HP rock good? quick attack for random cleaning up of stuff. protect for avoiding explosions, or staying alive while my partner saves his ***.

lum kindra starters are a ***** to take out for me.... but such is life. 2v2 is only about 10 turns anyways... and its all about momentum so a loss is a loss. this is my sunny day 2v2 team. sure I may lack explosion, but I have alot of protects to defend myself. dusclops can be a *****. but casper can usually catch it by surprise with a D bond.


Too much protect and not enough Explode, Execggutor explosions
are cool and Gar could too but with those Evs it won't pull much off..
Moltres and Eggy make a good team. Groudon and Eggy make a godly team...but then people will hate you so forget that.

You might want to consider putting Sunny Day on Eggy since it's slower than Kingdra/Zapdos. If your opponent starts with them, they'll change the weather to Rain first and then you'll change the weather to sun afterwards. The next turn, you're set up instead of them and you gain the advantage in the battle.

Mimic is cool if you can get it on Moltres. Mimic Eggy's Solarbeam and proceed to own.


Prediction succesful
Well... it looks good exept a fwew changes:

1.As setting moltres in the lead I would say that it first need to set up sunny day and than he should immediately starting attacking. In this case I would remove protect.

2.Eggy looks good compared with moltres(with sunny day), but I would remove protect again.

3.Snorlax is phisical tank, right?? So I would say remove shadow ball. With yawn on your Snorlax you can force a switch. Maybe if you remove shadow ball, you can give it rest and give it the lum berry or the chesto berry (lol, that's just pure snorlax XD), yeah but leftovers is also good if you want instant recovery on your snorlax.

4.This is a gengar I realy don't like!!! Don't give a timid natured gengar no ice punch, replace it for example with Shadow Ball (get STAB).

5.Moltres is looking good (maybe remove protect with heat wave or thunder wave).

6.Again I wouldn't give a negative natured pokemon HP rock, maybe you can change it with outrage or something??

Alright dude, that's all my advice, maybe I helped.
See Ya!!! :D
