If you're gonna use something holding a sash, Spinning is essential, especially if that sash holder loses half of it's health from rocks.
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252HP/252SpDef/4def
Trait: Intimidate
- Rapid Spin
- Mach Punch/Sucker Punch
- HJ/CC/Low Kick
- filler >_<


Basically, if your Sash Holder is the lead no need for a Spinner

How about adding a Rain Dancer instead of Pambi-Pom :)

coz Bug Team is weak to Fire....


wtf is with ur Butterfree, Ambipom, and Pinsir EV's? you forgot ur extra point :p

First off Heracross is a much better choice than pinsir

Rapid Spin is a required really, not sure how well Pinsir does for you, but if you'd want a replacement Forretress can take its place as a bug. Forry can spin and set up hazards which your sweepers will love because they lack alot of power off the bat to guarentee KO's.

Or Starmie could replace heatran. It also carry's the valuable fire resist (not as good as tran's immune tho)

And just pointing out right now that i can see Infernape causing you some troubles. Starmie can help with that problem aswell.

and u also overused the word classic :p

okey dokey khybon a few tweaks

1). Take body slam off of Jirachi and replace it with Thunder or an electric move. (trust me it helps when it comes to Gyrados)

2). Move heatran to the front or give him an item that stops him from dying in a 1 hit kill like if kyogre used surf or hydro pump so atleast you get stealth rock in there.

3). Put Eruption on Heatran and take out flamethrower, trust me Eruption can kill Volcarona, i have done it.

thats about it, hope it helps

PS. these are my opinions please dont bash me if you have a different choice


If you're gonna run two bug pokemon with a 4x weakness to rock you NEED a spinner..not sure why one isnt here but ok. Run the hitmontop set as suggested above ^^^ it can eliminate rock types like ttar and omastar that'll piss this team off. Roar + SR ****s this team over hard so you need something to help with that,I'd change ambipom since it's really useless here. I'd suggest taking out butterfree unless you're gay for it lol,Herracross,Scizor,Forretress,or a Vespiquen would do a better job rofl

Run a bulkier set on Tran because if he dies you're pretty much an open target. Plus you don't even have a water resist here...

252 Hp / 252 Sp Defense / 6 Hp
Calm | Flamethrower / Roar / Stealth Rocks / HP Grass or Ice
Leftovers or Passho Berry.

Good luck I love mono teams!
