Hobos need help with Pokemon Teams

They do, my last topic got buried so I need to remake it if I want anyone's help right?

Well, I know it's not the best, but I like Espeon and Typhlosion so I felt like having them in for what would be Alakazam and Gengar I bet =P

Typhlosion @ Leftovers or Heat Rock =P
Position: Lead
Nature - Timid
4 HP/ 252 S.Atk/ 252 Spd
Sunny Day
Focus Blast
Solar Beam
With Typhlosion as the lead and as the fast pokemon on my team he'll out race most leads and defeat most on first blow with Eruption which has more power the healther Typhlosion is. If Typhlosion hits into a water for a lead then Sunny Day and Solar Beam with save him. No Choice Items because he needs the freedom to use Sunny Day and Solar Beam. Though Typhlosion has problems to bulky waters with this, Focus Blast patches up rock types. Since most of the ground users on teams are rock also Focus Blast may defeat them. Garchomp is still a problem here.

Espeon @ Choice Specs
Position: Special Sweeper
Nature: Modest
4 HP/ 252 S.Atk/ 252 Spd
Grass Knot
Shadow Ball
Morning Sun
I really do like Espy =3. Thing is, his move pool is near zip. This is the best I could do for him. Grass Knot kills Bulky Waters, which Typhlosion may not beat due to Solar Beam needing Sunny Day and Bulky's having Earthquake which is not weaked like water to Sunny Day. Psychic and Shadow Ball are kind of obvious and Morning Sun is there if Typhlosion died using Sunny Day. Espeon then can heal more with Sunny Day in effect. Making Espeon and Typhlosion a got mutual pairing.

Tyranitar @ Choice Scarf
Position: Physical Sweeper
Nature: Jolly
4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spd
Stone Edge
Ice Fang
Fairly obivous...just like Garchomp. I think I'm going to just take Garchomp or Tyranitar out for a Skarmory and then swap Garchomp and Tyranitar out when I need a Dragon or a Dark Type.

Garchomp @ Choice Band
Position: Physical Sweeper
Nature: Adament
4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spd
Dragon Claw
Fire Fan
Stone Edge
Same as above Pokemon.
Garchomp also benefit from Tyranitar's Sand Stream.

(The Replacement Skarmory) @ Leftovers
Position: Physical Tanker =P
Nature: Adament
104 HP/ 152 Atk/ 252 Def
Steel Wing
Drill Peck
I believe Skarmory needs the most help, most with his moveset D=. With Tar or Gar out Skarmory creates my Physical Wall and with Tar Skarmory's S.Def with boast, helping him with Fire Types (not much though XP) Roost is to heal ,which is annoying to alot of people I bet.

Swampert @ Leftovers
Position: Special Wall
Nature: Relaxed
4 HP/ 124 Atk/ 128 S.Atk/ 252 S.Def
Surf or Muddy Water
Ice Beam
Brick Break
The Special Wall. Only weak to Grass with is always good. Along with Skarmory they'll benefit from anyone using Trick Room, so I'll trick them back I guess =3. Anyway, Swampert is my dragon kill I guess also and he's got Brick Break to fight Reflect and Light Screen if someone wants to use it.

Heracross @ Life Orb
Position: Physical Sweeper
Nature: Adament
4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spd
Close Combat
Stone Edge
I've never had trouble with Annoyers and everytime I fight my fights, which have a few annoyers, they also gets killed before they use Will-o-Whisp. Only two pokemon that annoy me are Blissey and Gengar >=P So I just decided to add another Johto pokemon and so Heracross is in. Other than that, pretty obvious why he's here, fighting/bug and likes to Rampage over teams.

LOL, Sup?
missing a Sp. Wall

Ape > Ty Ty is just trumped by Ape in D/P

Drill Peck > Steel Wing and Spikes > AA on Skar

Espeon also is trumped by Zam in this version. Zam just has to many more interesting attacks like Trick and Focus Punch to not use ;\

also, im not a big fan of CS TTar (just an opinion). I think the DD one has much more potential for sweeps

***FYI*** even thought i suggested other alternatives doesn't mean you should use them
I'm not missing a Special Wall for Swampert is it. Odd choice I know but it works.
As for Skar, thanks for the advice, completly forgot about Drill Peck. I may want him to have Spike, but I think Roar works as well too, mostly cause my friends are the type to not swap out... I need to make them.
Like I said, I like Espeon. Found him to be as annoy like Alakazam, maybe not has good, but I'll find a way around.

Updated the first post. =3

Alright, I found a replacement for Swampert =3
Anyway, only reason he was the wall was he the only decent poke I could think besides Milotic at the moment.
How about Slowking? He's a good S.Wall right?

Slowking @ Leftovers
Position- Special Wall
Nature- Calm
4 HP/ 252 S.Atk/ S.Def
Ice Beam
Nasty Plot/Thunder Wave/Psych Up/ Focus Blast

If you like King then help me decided the last move.


LOL, Sup?
just use the standard blissey. atleast with the blissey you cant be wrong

Blissey @Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Sp Def
Nature: Bold (+ Def, -Atk)
- Softboiled
- Sesimic Toss
- Aromatherapy
- Ice Beam (probably use this)/Thunderbolt


Gnarf Gnarf Gnarf
...He needs a bulk water type, methinks. >.<

Slowking would be very good, just watch out for Leafeons/Weaviles. Even with his above-average defense, and great Sp., he'll still go down.

Last Move is Nasty Plot. It's the only Water Type ,besides Manaphy that can learn a Sp. Atk 2x boosting move.

Swampert is the bulky water. it needs a better set too.

Swampert @ Leftovers
Relaxed Nature
252 HP / 216 Def / 42 Sp.Atk
- Ice Beam
- Surf
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock


prophecy fulfilled
Tyranitar + Morning Sun user, doesn't work

Tyranitar + Heracross, especially Life Orb Heracross, doesn't work.

This just looks like a team of 6 Pokemon thrown together with no thought about the synergy.

I mean you even have Brick Break on Swampert.

SE Brick Break = 150 power
STAB EQ = 150 power

Enjoy your wasted moveslot
