Lazy Ape UU Team

Big Beluga

u r a fatty
I've decided to finally make a UU team. I wanted to use a pokemon that was in the UU or NU tier and still had great stats, and then I came across Slaking. The only reason Slaking is stuck in the NU tier is because of his horrible ability Truant which makes him only able to attack once every two turns. I wanted to make a team that makes that exploies slaking's great stats, so I needed many counters and walls to make sure slaking doesn't take damage and remains in tact. Any improvements and change suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Claydol @ Lum Berry
252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 Atk
Bold
Moves:
-Rapid Spin
-Stealth Rock
-Earthquake
-Explosion

The lead. Claydol can set up Stealth Rock and switch to one of the many walls on the team. He can later come in to rapid spin away any entry hazards without having a weakness to stealth rock and being immune to spikes. Claydol can also attack with Earthquake, an can Explode to give some extra damage before he goes down.

Slaking @ Choice Band
252 Atk/ 4 Def/ 252 Spe
Adamant
Moves
-Return
-Earthquake
-Fire punch
-Pursuit

The powerhouse of the team. This set takes advantage of slakings pretty good hp and defense by sacrificing speed, and maximizing attack. With base 100 speed, Slaking is no slouch and can outspeed many things, so the ev's and nature are better spent on tearing pokemon to shreds with that amazing attack. His STAB Return will get huge damage on anything not resisting it. Earthquake is for the rocks and steels. Fire Punch deals with levitating ghosts, and steels that resist earthquake. And Pursuit is to catch pokemon fleeing for their lives. Because slaking can really only attack once, the rest of the team is to wall his weaknesses.

Slowbro @ Leftovers
252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 Sp. Def
Bold
Moves
-Slack Off
-Surf
-Psychic
-Thunder Wave

Slowbro is meant to take care of Slakings fighting weakness. Slowbro can switch in on fighting attacks and take them very easily, then attack with STAB Psychic. Surf gives him an extra STAB attack, while Slack Off is there to heal any damage taken. Thunder Wave gives support by slowing down sweepers letting Slaking attack first with his monstrous attack

Weezing @ Black Sludge
252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 Sp. Atk
Bold
Moves
-Flamethrower
-Thunderbolt
-Will-O-Wisp
-Explosion

Weezing is here to take care of Slowbro's and the rest of the teams bug weakness while giving more fighting type walling. Flamethrower is super effective against all those bug types. Thunderbolt helps against flying and water types. Will-O-Wisp provides support by halving physical sweepers attack and Explosion is the last ditch effort to deal damage while giving slaking a free switch in.

Umbreon @ Leftovers
252 HP/ 4 Def/ 252 Sp. Def
Calm
Moves
-Mean Look
-Baton Pass
-Wish
-Yawn

Umbreon takes care of Weezing's Psychic weakness, Is an all around great wall, and can trap an opponent that can't hurt slaking with Mean Look, put them to sleep with Yawn, and Baton Pass to him, all while giving Wish support to the team.

Lanturn @ Leftovers
40 HP/ 76 Def/ 140 Sp. Atk/ 252 Sp. Def
Calm
Moves
-Surf
-Thunderbolt
-Ice Beam
-Heal Bell

Lanturn provides a much need Special attacker, but also functions as a special wall (especially against bulky waters), while giving good use to it's new move from HG and SS, Heal Bell for support. The given EV's allow Lanturn to take many Special attacks while also adding to usable Sp. Attack and Speed. The Speed Ev's allow him to outspeed many nidoqueens and claydols. The Special Ev's give him more attacking power
