Staring at my phone
I usually use Fire Blast on NPApe, but that's just me. You
can also go with Vacuum Wave>FB for some priority, and
when boosted it can do some good damage.

Go with the second Mence set, but a different nature:
Naive <~ He'll appreciate the Spe.
Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Flamethrower
Roost

Ok, I won't change Lanturn.

Mismagius looks ok, but you should consider using
Substitute>W-o-W, just to make setting up easier.

Mamoswine looks ok.

You can use Moonlight>Toxic and turn him into more
of a tank, it'll also help him use Heal Bell easier.

Umbreon @ Leftovers
• Impish
• 252 HP / 152 Def / 104 SpDef
~ Toxic
~ Protect
~ Payback
~ Wish

This is pure stall, really. The idea is to come in on something more defensively-orientated which can't hit extremely hard, hit them with Toxic, and then use Umbreon's reasonably stable typing to your advantage as Toxic does the damage for you.

Toxic + Protect is a classic combo, allowing you to intensify the damage done while evading it yourself, and earning a turn of Leftovers recovery. Wish is also great alongside Toxic and Protect, giving you extra recovery and therefore durability against an opponent that, hopefully, will be unable to beat you. An added advantage is that Wish can be passed over to teammates, too, which means it outclasses Moonlight. The only reason Payback is used is to do some damage when you need to, which won't be often but is worth having just in case you don't feel like stalling out something that can be OHKO'd anyway.

Although you could stick Heal Bell in there if you really want to anyway.

Sorry, I didn't see the no breeding thing. And I posted EVs because they were in the original post that I took that one from, so you can ignore them. I know it's for in-game... That's why it's in-game RMT. Your Umbreon should be fine then.

To help out with what? Setting up? If so, then Substitute will do this far better.

this is my idea:

Infernape @ Leftovers
[i know nothing about natures...so...]
Flare blitz
Close combat (or something similar)
Thunder punch
Bulk Up.

This is an atk infernape but if you want a SpAtk one Here.

Infernape @ anything
Flamethrower
Calm mind
Focus Blast
Heat wave/Vaccum wave

I hope i helped :)

I think you should learn infernape and salamance Fire blast in stead of flamethrower. Fire blast is a more powerful attack.

yeah i know but i prefer ingame accuraty > power and the infernape is a smogen ms.

i'd rather hit ten times then miss 5. On my Salamence, the bagon i bred already knows FT/DC/DD/AA. Parent had that ms.
