Dont use Toxic or Twave on Tyranitar unless your wanting it for catching (in which canse use Twave)....go for:

Tyranitar
---Earthquake
---Crunch
---Dragon Dance
---Stone Edge/Rock Slide*

*Rock Slide is better for in game due to higher PP and accuracy

I personally think that Umbreon can do much better than Dusknoir. So, you can have an Umbreon that is Calm or Bold with moveset: Toxic, Mean Look, Moon Light and Dark Pulse or Confuse Ray. Max out Evs in Def. and Sp.Def. without any remaining in HP.

That sounds pretty good, but Dusknoir has better base Attack, Def and Sp Def, so I think I'd prefer Dusknoir.

For a Duskonoir, I would probably go with hp evs and special defense evs maxed and then for a move set, I would go for a mean looker.

Mean look
Rest
Will o wisp
Curse

Just a thought

^Ewww. No.
Dusknoir@leftovers
Careful (252HP/252Sp. Def/6 Def)
Will-O-Wisp
Pain Split
Thunder/Ice punch (depending on what your team needs to counter)
Shadow Punch/Sneak

I prefer shadow sneak, it's great for taking out gengar/alakazam/azelf/etc.

Yeah that sounds good, but should I use toxic instead? It has higher accuracy yet lower PP, I'm thinking about Toxic instead of Will-o-wisp.
