    I built this team with a few main objectives.

    1.) Confuse the opposing team during team preview.
    2.) Run and gun with Luxray utilizing volt switch with Forretress. Volt switch back and forth to keep the intimidates coming and to keep luxray protected from harm.
    3.) Use Gengar's substitute and painsplit to level playing field and kick down tanks and high health pokes, as well as being an all around powerful SP. atk with high speed. (Glass Cannon LOL)
    4.) Utilize Arcanine to have more move coverage as well as being an all around bad-***

    Team: IV order is HP ATK DEF SP.A SP.D SPEED

    Luxray - Choice Scarf
    Nature: Adamant
    EV's are 252 in ATK 252 in SPD 4 in HP
    Ice Fang
    Volt Switch
    Wild Charge
    Fire fang

    Forretress - Shed Shell
    Nature: Sassy
    EV's are 252 in SP. D 252 in HP and 4 Def
    Rapid Spin
    Volt Switch
    Toxic Spikes

    Gengar - Life Orb
    Nature: Timid
    EV's are 252 in Sp. ATK 252 in Spd. 4 in HP
    Pain Split
    Shadow Ball
    Focus Blast

    Arcanine - Lum Berry
    Nature: Adamant
    Ev's are 252 in ATK. 252 in SPD. 4 in HP
    Flare Blitz
    Wild Charge
    Close Combat

    Excadrill - Air Balloon
    Sand Rush
    Nature: Adamant
    Ev's are 252 in ATK. 252 in SPD. 4 in HP
    Rock Slide

    Tyranitar - Leftovers
    Sand Stream
    Nature: Careful
    EV's are 252 in Sp DEF. 252 in HP. 8 in ATK
    Stealth Rock
    Fire Blast

    With this team, I employ one of several strategies

    1.) Use Gengar Foretress. Have gengar throw up substitutes and tackle threats with his epic SP.ATK, have forretress rapid spin threats away if needed, lay spikes if I have time, and most of all, volt switch with scarfed luxray back and forth for STAB luxray volt switches while keeping his *** protected..

    2.) Use foretress luxray, and volt switch in either the sand team or arcanine gengar for 2 intimidates, but this leaves gengar and arcanine open for slapping around, kind of silly.

    What do you think? I like the bait and switch strategy, and I usually leave tyranitar and excadrill out of the match for some reverse psychology and go for STAB's, spikes, and fast volt switches.

    I know luxray's speed is trash, but I want to prove his worth

    You need descriptions for each Pokemon long with EVs, Nature, and Abilities if more than one.

    Use this format to make it easier on the rater:

    Pokemon 1 @ Item
    EVs: (separate each EVs by " / ")
    - move
    - move
    - move
    - move

    Done again, you didn't tell me where to put the IV's like you requested so I just followed your format to the best of my ability.

    Also I've been doing pretty decent with it. about 60-70% win overall in winter tournament and wifi. I think a few tweaks will strengthen the team.

    For instance, this entire team gets raped by earthquake, except for gengar. Maybe I should swap out arcanine.

    if this is for ou, then it sucks because exca is uber. if it isn't, then it would be wise to state what tournament this is for

    Shed Shell is pointless on Forry as Magnet Pull doesn't stop you from using Volt Switch.

    Band dat Arcanine.

    Terrakion murders your team with his STABs having super-effective coverage on half your team and neutral coverage on the rest. If it's a Scarf set, only Excadrill even has a hope of taking it down and he can't switch in on Close Combat. If it's a Rock Polish set, good game.

    That's all for now, too tired for a full rate.
  14. Sandstream and Sand Rush are legal on Smogon OU...

    At any rate:

    You need to have detailed descriptions for each of your Pokemon. In addition, Serebii uses Smogon tiers as the default, so if you're using a different ruleset then it'd be really helpful to clarify in your OP. Keep that in mind if you make another RMT. ^_^
