  1. Aerodactyl [​IMG] Focus Sash [​IMG]
    Ability: Pressure
    EVs: 31 in attack 31 speed and 25 hp
    Nature: Jolly
    - Stealth Rock
    - Taunt
    - Stone edge
    - Earthquake

    mostly use stealth rock asap and taunt, and change if cant do a super effective attack. Earthquake is mostly the first option in attacks because of its power and good coverage, stone edge would be against some OUs like dragonite of gyarados.

    Dragonite [​IMG] Lum berry [​IMG]
    Ability: Inner Focus
    EVs: 10/17/x/5/8/16
    Nature: Bold (I know adamant would be better)
    - Roost
    - Dragon Dance
    - Earthquake
    - Outrage

    to do a dragon dance and then start sweeping pokemon :p, I mean, roost to recover in difficult problems, Earthquake against some dragonite counters such as tyranitar and stone edge Infernape, and outrage because its damn cool and the good coverage.

    Metagross [​IMG] Life Orb [​IMG]
    Ability: Clear Body
    EVs: x/25/10/6/x/12
    Nature: Bold (same as dragonite)
    - Agility
    - Earthquake
    - Meteor Mash
    - Zen Headbutt

    Try to do agility as soon as possible and to to take out some pokemon, mostly to take out in an advantageous switch in. Meteror Mash is against most of super effective pokes again like tyranitar. Earthquake again some metagross counters or jiriachi after agility and zen headbutt to take out mostly poison types and a 2hko a non fire punch machamp

    Infernape [​IMG] Expert Belt (should I change to life orb?) [​IMG]
    Ability: Blaze
    EVs: 7/19/4/9/0/11
    Nature: Jolly
    - Swords Dance
    - Close Combat
    - Stone Edge
    - Fire Blitz

    To take out good walls mostly with a combination of swords dance and an attack. Close Combat mostly like blissey or snorlax, or difficult situations, Stone edge so take out dragonite or gyaraods and fire blitz because of the nice coverage and power.

    Gyarados [​IMG] Life orb [​IMG]
    Ability: Intimidate
    EVs: Speed 27, attack 22 and special defense 13
    Nature: Jolly
    - Dragon Dance
    - Waterfall
    - Ice fang (maybe change to stone edge)
    - Earthquake

    After a dragon dance, Earthquake it may OHKO some pokes like choice scarf tyranitar or a lucario. waterfall because its a basic attack for gyarados, Ice fang against some grass types and flygon.

    Tyranitar [​IMG] (not sure yet)
    Ability: Sand Stream
    EVs: (I just can't damn remember)
    Nature: Lonely (Same as dragonite)
    - Thunder Fang (Thinking to change it to fire punch)
    - Earthquake
    - Crunch
    - Stone Edge

    Mostly to take out some pokemons like Fortress or scizor. Besides of course the great coverage this pokemon takes :). ONe last thing, should I change one of this for a bold blissey with seismic toss and aromatherapy?

    Please feel free to give my constructive critique since I really want to get in competitive battles. Thanks

  2. i can see 3 poke's with Sr weakness but no spinner
    alright you have a lot of sweepers wich doesn't have to be
    a bad thing but in your case you only have physical ones and i could see this team getting walled
    change some of your sweepers to special ones like gengar
    your defenses are meh and the only one with recovery is dragonite
    so i think you could use some wish support consider blissey as it gives U a great specially defensive wall and a great toxistaller
    you have 5 top OU threats but i don't see them doing alot against skarmory provided
    infernape and (w/fire punch)tyranitar are dead
    and boltbeamsurf starmie destroy everything

    and what you call ev's are actually iv's
    just look up what ev's actually are

    anyways succes

    Edit-also change your natures to apropriate ones

  3. Swiftrz & Milotic

    Swiftrz & Milotic Feed me a stray cat

    Having Blissey Cleric on your team would be a good move, you could use a Special Wall that gives your team some support.

    Blissey @Leftovers
    Calm, Natural Cure
    252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Spe
    Seismic Toss

    Toxic over Thunder Wave since most Steels present a physical threat and this Blissey should be switched out asap when faced with a physical Poke.

    Blissey can replace either Gyarados or Dragonite as they both have similar jobs and movesets. I'd also put Outrage on Gyarados over EQ as you have EQ on both Metagross and Aerodactyl.

    You'd do well with a special threat as well, maybe a mixed set on Dragonite?

  4. OK first off, I think you're getting EVs mixed up with IVs, which are completely different. If you're confused, this guide will give you a good introduction to EVs.

    And if you want an advanced guide on how to place your EVs, read this.

    Now onto the team.

    Aerodactyl: This guy's fine. Just recommend Rock Slide over Stone Edge, for accuracy and flinching.

    Dragonite: Pretty good. If you're running Lum Berry, then I think Dragon Claw would be a safer and more reliable option over Outrage, since Lum Berry is a more defensive item. If you want to keep Outrage, then Life Orb might do you some good. And yes, Adamant would be better.

    Metagross: Needs Adamant, but other than that it's fine.

    Infernape: I think that you will benefit better from a physical MixApe here, to handle walls.

    Infernape@Life Orb
    EVs: 252 Atk, 64 SpA, 192 Spe
    -Close Combat
    -Stone Edge

    Gyarados: I like this set. And yes, Stone Edge over Ice Fang.

    Tyranitar: If you're looking for a Tyranitar that can take on Forretress and Scizor, then this is the set you're looking for.

    Tyranitar@Babiri Berry
    Sand Stream
    EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
    -Dragon Dance
    -Stone Edge
    -Fire Punch

    Babiri Berry allows you to survive Scizor's Bullet Punch, after which you can kill it with Fire Punch. This allows you to defeat an opponent's Scizor that might try to switch into Tyranitar as it sets up Dragon Dance and then kill it with its powerful priority. After Scizor is dispatched, you can do some sweeping.

    Hope this helps! And good luck with your team!
  5. hmm, I think I see your point... well thanks for the idea, i might change to a blissey now, but if so, who should I change?

    I did think about the blissey but who should I take out?, and about the special attacker, I might change my infernape to a mixed special ape

    thanks for clearing those stuff, now I understand the Ev and Ivs, that dragon dance tyranitar seems perfect, thanks, about the gyarados, I'll need stone edge Tm :/.

    Thanks to you three guys, i really appreciate it
  6. Swiftrz & Milotic

    Swiftrz & Milotic Feed me a stray cat

    Choosing between Gyarados and Dragonite, I'd choose Gyarados.

    Gyarados @Life Orb
    Jolly, Intimidate
    88 HP / 252 Atk / 168 Spe
    Dragon Dance
    Stone Edge

    Jolly w/ 168 Spe EV's allows you, after one DD, to outrun everyone in OU save for Ninjask. Outrage allows you to have an extremely powerul sweeping move, chosen over EQ since you have access to EQ on three other teammates. After one DD you outrun Jolteon and +1DD Waterfall will OHKO the sparky little guy, so EQ isn't crucial to have.

    As for switching, Blissey can switch into Thunderbolts without much of a problem, should Gyarados be unable to set up.

  7. i'm with Swiftr & milotic
    gyarados just has more potential
    but do watch out for stone edges although blissey will survive unboosted ones
    and factoring in gyarados intimidate i can see this work

    good luck
