    will be using this team mostly to battle against friends, battle subway & random wifi.

    (this is my first time writing up a team on forums so sorry for the lack of detail)

    •Accelgor @ item: Focus Sash
    •Ability: Sticky hold
    •Nature: Timid
    •EVs: 252 Special Atk/252 Speed/4 HP
    -Bug Buzz
    -Focus Blast

    Accelgor will be the first into battle, depending on the situation i will either try to take the opponent down or i will just set up spikes and U-turn out. the reason i have Accelgor is i really like him and he is one of my favourite pokemon.

    •Hippowdon @ item: Leftovers
    •Ability: Sand Stream
    •Nature: Impish
    •EVs: 252 Defence/ 252 HP/4 Special Defence
    -Slack off
    -Stealth Rock

    Hippowdon will come in after the spikes have been set by Accelgor, he will then start a Sandstorm and lay down stealth rock, after that i will either fight the opposition or use Roar/Whirlwind if they counter me.

    •Excadrill @ item: Life Orb
    •Ability: Sand Rush
    •Nature: Jolly
    •EVs: 252 Atk/252 Speed/ 4HP
    -Sword Dance
    -Rock Slide
    -Rapid spin

    my sweeper will be Excadrill, he also has Rapid spin to knock anything on my field away.

    •Cradily @ item: Leftovers
    •Ability: Storm Drain
    •Nature: Calm
    •EVs: 252 HP/252 Special Defence/4 Special Atk
    -Energy Ball
    -Wring Out/Hyper Beam

    Cradily is my special wall, also has the move sandstorm incase Hippowdon falls and the weather is changed.only flaw to him is ice moves will be a pain.

    •Gengar @ item: Black Sludge
    •Ability: Levitate
    •Nature: Timid
    •EVs: 252 Special Atk/252 Speed/4 HP
    -Focus Blast
    -Shadow Ball
    -Psychic/Sludge Bomb
    -Fire Punch

    my spinblocker/special sweeper to counter anything with rapid spin and them nasty fighting/ice types.

    •Swampert @ item: Focus Sash/????
    •Ability: Torrent
    •Nature: Jolly
    •EVs: 252 Speed/252 HP/4 atk
    -Stealth Rock

    Swampert is my somewhat bulky-secondary physical sweeper. also he is fitted in because i couldnt really find anything else without tilding the weaknesses too far in a certain type.

    what do you like/dislike?
    what would you keep/change?
    swampert was just chucked in there because i couldnt find much that would fit without unbalancing the weaknesses
