No weather, standard RMT

    Cinderace @ choice band
    Blaze
    Adamant 252 att 252 sp 4 hp

    Pyro ball
    Hi jump kick
    Gunk shot
    U turn

    Pretty solid lead, good speed tier to u-turn out and get a priority switch in. Very few things can take a banded pyro ball or hi jump kick, with gunk shot for unresisted coverage. One of my main dynamax candidates.

    Gyarados @ wacan berry
    Intimidate
    Adamant 252 att 252 sp 4 hp

    Waterfall
    Dragon Dance
    Ice fang
    Earthquake

    Standard DD gyara. nothing flashy here, My main dynamax choice. after 1 or 2 dragon dances and rain from max geyser, this thing sweeps with extreme prejudice.

    Hatterene @ assault vest
    Magic bounce
    Modest 252 HP 252 sp d 4 def

    Mystic fire
    Aromatherapy
    Dazzling gleam
    Psychic/Giga drain

    Special wall, hazard denial and cleric. Cinderace cannot afford to be paralyzed, neither can gyara, and keeps a burn from neutering him. Solid wall that hits hard as well. Undecided on giga drain or Psychic to punish poison switch ins.

    Hydreigon @ choice scarf
    Levitate
    Modest 252 sp att 252 speed 4 HP

    Draco Meteor
    Earth power/Flamethrower
    Flash cannon
    Dark Pulse

    Revenge killer, pretty standard stuff. Undecided on earth power or flamethrower for coverage, but flash cannon nails obvious fairy type switch ins pretty hard, dark pulse for secondary reliable stab. Draco meteor is draco meteor.

    Ferrothorn @ leftovers
    Iron barbs
    Relaxed 252 HP 252 def 4 sp def

    Stealth rock
    Spikes
    Power whip/Thunder wave
    Gyro ball

    Hazard setter and physical wall. Undecided on thunder wave, my team is relatively slow and has no tailwind support so i feel like i need paralysis support, but after 8 gyro balls ferro is essentially death fodder.

    Lucario @ choice specs
    Inner Focus
    Modest 252 sp att 252 speed 4 HP

    Aura Sphere
    Flash cannon
    Shadow ball
    Dragon Pulse

    Use the momentum generated by cinderace's u-turn to hit something hard on the switch every time. Standard specs luc is standard. Might consider a nasty plot salac berry variant, would probs switch nature to timid, and get rid of dragon pulse for nasty plot, but i honestly feel like this set is more viable.

    So, that is my competitive team! Very interested in feedback, as well as suggestions on my undecided criteria. Thanks in advance!

    You can't get Hatterene and Cinderace in Sun and Moon. Lucario is better mega evolving. Mega Lucario hits harder than Specs Lucario on STAB moves, is significantly faster, and can switch between moves. Also, list what format you're battling in. Singles, doubles, royals.

    Over here. Mention in your post what format you're battling in. This is the gen 7 forum.

    There actually isn't a Gen 8 competitive section at all yet. I requested one a while ago but never got a response. I'm not sure if we're supposed to post Gen 8 RMTs in this section or the general Sw/Sh discussion section that SLB linked to.
