Hi! If you're reading this, I hope you're going to help me. It's my first team I've thought of myself, and I know it needs some improvements, so I would like some help please ^_^

I think I've spotted a lot of problems, but I'm not very experienced, and would like a second opinion.

Trait: Pressure
EVs: 255 Sp Def, 255 Attack
Nature: Careful
Power Gem
Attack Order
Heal Order

Vespiquen is a balanced pokémon in my team. One attack with STAB, one that covers weaknesses, and Toxic: an annoyer. Not too sure about Heal Order though, and the held item might not be very good.

Bastiodon@Full Incense
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 255 Def, 255 Sp Def
Nature: Careful
Rock Slide
Metal Burst
Iron Defence

Bastiodon is my wall. Great defences, and attacks to boost it's defence and restore it's HP. Metal Burst is there because it can withstand attacks, and deal back lots of damage. Full Incense used so it always attacks last.

Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 255 Speed, 255 Sp Def
Nature: Jolly
Poison Jab
Night Slash
Double Team

Gliscor is my annoyer. Sand Veil will up it's evasion when it uses Sandstorm, while slowly chipping away the HP of the foe. Brightpowder and Double Team will also raise evasiveness. Night Slash and Poison Jab are generic attacking moves, with the latter having STAB and possible status condition.

Slowking@Wise Glasses
Trait: Own Tempo
EVs: 255 Sp Attack, 255 Def
Nature: Relaxed
Ice Beam

Slowking is the pokémon rhat I'm most unsure about. I don't know whether having Slowking as a special sweeper is such a good idea or not, and want to know whether anybody would do anything different, or just choose a completely different pokémon altogether.

Spiritomb@Big Root
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 255 HP, 255 Sp Attack
Nature: Mild
Dream Eater
Dark Pulse
Ominous Wind

Spiritomb is also another that I'm weary of. For a start, Dream Eater requires hypnosis to work, which may be hard if a pokémon is dark, or knows insomnia. Need a second opinion on that too.

Magnezone@Light Clay
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 255 Def, 255 Sp Def
Nature: Calm
Mirror Shot
Light Screen

Magnezone is mainly a defensive pokémon, hence the Light Screen, Reflect and Soft Clay. Discharge and Mirror Shot both have STAB, but I'm still not too sure about the moveset.

If you've read up to here, then you'll probably be posting too, and I'd just like to say thanks if you do ^_^

...you should definitely consider changing pretty all your pokemon except for Gliscor.

Gliscor @ Leftovers
Impish Nature
252 HP / 252 Def / 6 Spd
- Earthquake
- Aerial Ace
- Stealth Rock
- Roost

You'll need a special wall, and Blissey is the best you'll find.

Blissey @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
Bold Nature
212 HP / 252 Def / 44 Sp.Atk
- Ice Beam
- Seismic Toss
- Aromatherapy
- Softboiled

I'm not too sure what kinda of Pokémon I need.

Would a Wall, Special Sweeper, Physical Sweeper and Baton Passer be a good idea? Along with an annoyer and something else?


Well-Known Member
With Blissey/Gliscor, you've got your walls. Get rid of Vespiqueen, Bastiodon, Slowking, and Spiritomb imo for better pokemon. You'll need a physical sweeper, and a special sweeper, a baton passer if you want, and I guess an annoyer.


Well-Known Member
Would Rampardos and Gengar make good sweepers, with Ninjask as a baton passer and Ludicolo as an annoyer?


Well-Known Member
Gengar can work as a special attacker.

Gengar @ Life Orb
Modest / Timid Nature
252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spd / 6 HP
- Hypnosis
- Thunderbolt
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball

There are other physical sweepers that are much better than Rampardos, and a Baton Passer isn't needed but Togekiss would probably be the best since it can Baton Pass some Nasty Plots to Gengar/Ludicolo.

Ludicolo can work as support/annoyer.

Ludicolo @ Leftovers
Calm Nature
Ability: Swift Swim
204 HP / 76 Sp.Atk / 228 Sp.Def
- Leech Seed
- Surf
- Ice Beam / Energy Ball
- Toxic / Protect


Well-Known Member
Would Salamence be better?

Adamant Nature
Stone Edge
Dragon Claw
Fire Fang
Thunder Fang


Well-Known Member
Yeah, a DD Mence can work.

Salamence @ Leftovers / Life Orb
Adamant Nature
120 HP / 252 Atk / 136 Spd
- Dragon Dance
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
