Lookin for some sugs on this



Metagross @ Lum Berry
Adamant Nature
EV's: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Spd
- Earthquake
- Thunderpunch
- Explosion
- Meteor Mash

This guy is the lead, covers some standard leads and overall good, solid way to start the match.


Heatran @ Choice Scarf
Timid Nature
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
- Stone Edge
- Dark Pulse
- Overheat
- Dragon Pulse

I switched out my infernape for this guy. Sure the 4x weakness to ground sucks *** but hes not solely there for the overheat, but for the dragon pulse and dark pulse, stone edge is useful too, so i have that over earth power. Metagross and Swampert cover ground with earthquake already. Overall hes a good special sweeper. Suggestions on him though?


Gengar @ Focus Sash (M)
Timid Nature
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 6 Def
-Energy Ball
-Shadow Ball

I switched out Explosion for Energy Ball, I know it will come in handy but I havent had the need to use it yet >_>, suggestions on this guy?


Swampert @ Leftovers (F)
Impish Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def / 6 Def

Newest addition. I switched out milotic for this guy. Comes in with a curse, then goes to work with this other moves. I want to keep avalanche on him because he's not really my main dragon killer (Cresselia), plus he will always most likely go second so a 120 power avalanche is nice for those grass types.


Togekiss @ Leftovers (M)
Timid Nature
EVs: 252 SAtk / 129 SDef / 128 Spd
-Aura Sphere
-Thunder Wave
-Air Slash

I like this guy, coupled with Serene Grace, he can be very annoying. Plus he has fighting type aura sphere which allows me to keep stone edge on infernape. Basically comes in with a thunderwave then slashes and roosts.


Cresselia @ Life Orb (F)
Bold Nature
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SDef / 6 SAtk
-Lunar Dance
-Ice Beam

Shes basically the supporter/dragon killer on the team. Reflects or, ice beams and moonlights her way through salamence and garchomps, shes very useful. If shes has no more purpose in the fight and her HP is runnin low, i dont bother with the moonlight, and i go right to the lunar dance to bring back a nearly fallen comrade, helps a lot.


Overall suggestions on the whole team would be great, thanks! :)

Neutral Overheat > Super effective Dark Pulse. I would be very careful with Hera. Lunar Dance on Cress is cool, I like it passing to Focus Sash sweepers and what do you know you've got one in Gengar.


cursepert sucks.
lol LO cress, go with lefties

Shes not really worth having lefties on this team since shes really there for the ice beam to kill dragons hence life orb, to make sure they get OHKO'd, and using Lunar Dance to help out the other people. So shes not meant to last that long really

As for cursepert, i havent been in a situation yet where ive said "damn this guy sucks" so i'm sticking with it for the time being, its working out well though for me.
