    So this is what I have been slowly working for for the longest time, tell me what you think :)
    this is suppose to be in-game, but i might dabble with a battle vs. a friend or two from time to time

    skarmory:
    spikes/stealth rock?
    toxic
    roar
    fly
    -start off the battle with skarmory, lay spikes, then toxic the opponents, and roar them until i get most of them in and toxic all of them, and they take entry hazards, and so i know what i'm dealing with. if i live long enough i can use fly, and use the poison to my benefit too

    scizor: with choice band
    u-turn
    bullet punch
    brick break/superpower
    pursuit
    this one would kind of be a scout/physical sweeper

    dragonite:
    firepunch
    outrage
    earthquake
    dragon dance

    charizard:
    sunny day
    flamethrower
    solarbeam
    air slash

    lugia:
    roost
    ice beam
    extra sensory
    lightscreen

    spiritomb:
    sucker punch
    shadow ball
    hypnosis
    dream eater

    the 2 moves separated by a "/" mean i'm not sure which one too pick, so any suggestions are more than welcome :)

    Skarmory looks fine. I'm assuming fly is for traveling because there are better options (like brave bird). And just realize that spikes is next to useless for in-game. But it's fine to keep it if you're going to be doing battles with friends.

    I'd give scizor a choice band instead of scarf, since bullet punch will be your main attack and it gets priority. Plus, the infamous CB/technician/STAB bullet punch will hurt....a lot. Also, pursuit is a better choice than night slash thanks to technician. And use u-turn over SD since you're choiced.

    Dragonite wants either fire punch or fire blast instead of thunderpunch (depending on its nature). Then there's nothing at all that will resist its attacks. Then go with roost over wing attack. Or you could also use Dragon Dance if you'd rather have power than recovery.

    And with that, I'll leave the rest to other people. I hope this helped! :)

    Awesome team go check out my pokemon platinum team. The only thing I suggest is swords dance on your scizor thats it though you have a very well rounded team nice job!!

    Choice Band Scizor is more of an immediate threat. Swords Dance has potential for the opponent to switch in a Special Attacking Fire type and OHKO him.

    ok, so i took some of your suggestions, but not all, but i do appreciate all the input. the revises team is now in the main post, but i have a couple more questions now.


    should i switch spikes for stealth on skarmory? i think the 1 turn setup is nice, even if it doesn't hit all pokemon too hard
    I don't have a single electric attack, make room for one, or just don't worry about it?

    and while appreciate the setup for spiritomb, i'm just kind of attached to his current setup, which deals much more damage than the other priority moves. will o wisp is cool, but i like the hypnosis/dream eater combo, and i don't want to get ride of his 2 STAB attacks, so i don't think i can change him too much. appreciate the input though

    All the opponent has to do to counter your Spiritomb is send in a Dark type and your Spiritomb loses.

    Choice sets ingame aren't viable , since they lock you into one move , and since the AI are too stupid to switch , meaning Swords Dance is better.

    /facepalm Again , the AI won't switch azeem.
