New Member
After a little tweaking I scrapped 1/2 of my first team to try something new. I have to use a TTar, Houndoom or Drapion and frankly I'm sick of TTar. Also Houndoom seems pointless with Infernape so I figured I'd try to make a worthwhile Drapion. Anyways, any input would be much appreciated thx.

Drapion @ Scope Lens
Trait: Sniper
EVs: 76 HP, 62 Atk, 172 Def, 200 Spd
Nature: Impish (+Def, -SAtk)
-Cross Poison
-Fire Fang
-Ice Fang
-Night Slash

High speed and defense guarantee a few hits, hoping for some lucky crits to catch the other guy off guard. I know... it's crap.

Infernape @ Life Orb
Trait: Blaze
EVs: 6 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spd
Nature: Adamant (+Atk, -SAtk)
-Close Combat
-Flare Blitz
-Thunder Punch


Lucario @ Choice Specs
Trait: Inner Focus
EVs: 6 HP, 252 SAtk, 252 Spd
Nature: Modest (+SAtk, -Atk)
-Aura Sphere
-Dark Pulse
-Dragon Pulse

Pewpew special sweeper.

Milotic @ Leftovers
Trait: Marvel Scale
EVs: 252 HP, 58 SAtk, 200 SDef
Nature: Calm (+SDef, -Atk)
-Ice Beam
-Sleep Talk

PITA special tank, pretty standard stuff.

Skarmory @ Leftovers
Trait: Keen Eye
EVs: 252 HP, 46 Atk, 212 Def
Nature: Impish (+Def, -SAtk)
-Drill Peck

Standard physical wall, plus I just like Skarmories.

Spiritomb @ Leftovers
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP, 58 Def, 200 SDef
Nature: Careful (+SDef, -SAtk)
-Pain Split
-Sucker Punch

My attempt at a mixed wall.

I'm still pretty new at this so any/all criticisms will be accepted graciously. Thx!~
