Black and white screens

    This is a team I made on PO, but gonna use on wi-fi once I re-trained some of the pokés.

    At a first glance:


    As you can see the team is relatively bulky. I usually lead with either Donphan or Rotom-W depending on my opponents team. Donphan sets up stealth rock and spinns, while Rotoms goal is to set up lightscreen and reflect to protect my team. The rest are pokés that can set up.

    Donphan (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Stealth Rock
    - Rapid Spin
    - Ice Shard
    - Earthquake

    I usually lead with either Donphan or Rotom-W depending on the opponents team. The reason I choosed Donphan over other bulky ground types was mainly for rapid spin which is very important with Ulgamoth being quad weak to rock. His ability sturdy as well as priority in ice shard have saved me many times as well. Max attack allows him to pack a big punch with STAB EQ, should he be taunted.

    Rotom-W @ Light Clay
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 SAtk / 8 SDef
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Reflect
    - Light Screen
    - Volt Change
    - Hydro Pump

    Rotom-W has very few weaknesses and is realatively bulky making it a great pokes to set up screens with. Volt change makes him even better, being able to sneak out once the screens are set up, or just scout in general. Now, the Ev's and nature is not really optimal, but I only have a timid Rotom right now and I wanted a bit bulk while being sure to outspeed most lead Dragonite. I had Raikou previosly in this slow but swiched to Rotom to have a EQ immunity in my team + hydro pump makes sure ground types stay away so I can Volt Change.

    Roobushin (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Guts
    EVs: 68 HP / 220 Atk / 220 SDef
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Bulk Up
    - Drain Punch
    - Stone Edge
    - Mach Punch

    Roobushing is a beast; especially under dual screens. There are very few things that can take out Roobushin once it start using bulk up, and should the opponent burn/toxic Roobushins attack will sky rocket.. Drain punch is awsome for recovering health while stone edge takes care of bulky flying types. Most ghost will takes enought damage from stone edge anyway. Mach punch is awsome priority and do a lot to Doryuuzu.

    Ulgamoth (M) @ Chesto Berry
    Trait: Flame Body
    EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Rest
    - Butterfly Dance
    - Bug Buzz
    - Flame Dance

    This slot was previosly taken by Ninetales because I wanted something that could revenge kill most weather sweepers, like Doryuuzu. But right now I'm testing this guy as it is pretty good under dual screen. Chesto rest really suprises people too. The bulky Ev-spreads make it easier to set up, especially under dual screen and Ulgamoth can just rest of status and damage. I chosed Chesto rest > Morning sun because rain dance/sandstorm is just to common.

    Mew @ Life Orb
    Trait: Synchronize
    EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Nasty Plot
    - Fire Blast
    - Psycho Shock
    - Vacuum Wave

    Mew is my second fighting resist and he has great bulk to set up nasty plot. I choosed Vacuum wave since I wanted priority and it helps against Doryuuzu trying to revenge kill it. Fire blast was chosen over shadow ball to cover bulkier steel types especially many common ones only takes neutral damage from Vacuum wave. The accuricy sucks sometimes, but I need to hit fellow psysic types as hard as possible since I lack Shadow ball.

    Virizion @ Life Orb
    Trait: Justice Heart
    EVs: 24 Def / 252 SAtk / 232 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Calm Mind
    - Giga Drain
    - Focus Blast
    - Hidden Power [Ice]

    I used Virizion since its typing and special bulk allows it to take on rain dance teams pretty good. He also resist the rock/ground combo making it a great counter to Doryuuzu. Calm mind boost is already awsome special defence while giga drain helps it recover life orb recoil. Hidden power ice for dragon types and gliscor.
