    Aerodactyl looks good to me as is.

    Typhlosion should run
    -Shadow Claw
    -Focus Blast
    (Credit to Aura Sensai for the moveset)

    I'd say swampert's moves look ok, but I think it should be adamant or impish.

    Hope this helped!

    Aerodactyl would be fine if it was Competitive , but since the AI is stupid , Stealth Rock and Taunt are wasting moveslots. Replace them with Double Edge and Aerial Ace.

    Earthquake > Ice Punch on Swampert , it is it's best STAB.

    Venusaur can run Sleep Powder / Leech Seed / Seed Bomb / Curse.

    Eruption. I adored that move when I got my Soul Silver and knew nothing about pokemon.

    I think flamethrower > eruption. Especially since typhlosion is holding a life orb and will be losing health from that. Flamethrower is much more consistent and has more PP.

    Standard Scarf Typhlosion goes something like this:

    ~ Eruption
    ~ Flamethrower
    ~ Thunderpunch
    ~ Shadow Claw / Focus Blast

    Eruption being rather useful at high HP. Otherwise you use Flamethrower. T-Punch and Shadow Claw / Focus Blast is coverage.

    As I said, this is for PBR, which is not divided into tiers. It's kind of based onto if I run into a Darkrai (which is admittedly, not very good to base it on one Pokemon). To counter Dark Void (which will be on a double-battle), I'll send out Bronzong and Typhlosion. Typhlosion-protect, Bronzong-trick room (and lum berry cures sleep). Next turn, Typhlosion-sunny day, Bronzong-hypnosis on Darkrai.

    W/o Ice punch, I have no coverage of the overused Dragon type. That's why I put EQ on Aerodactyl. If I replace Venusaur gets Seed Bomb over Solarbeam, then I will replace Sunny Day for Thunderpunch on Typhlosion. Because that's mainly the only reason that was there.

    Or just have typhlosion focus blast darkrai for super effective damage :)

    1. If you're referring to Focus Blasting Darkrai after Trick Room, then I understand what you mean, and it probably would be a KO. However, it is very inaccurate and would probably miss.

    2. If you're referring to Focus Blasting Darkrai in general, then I have to say that Darkrai is faster than Typhlosion.

    If you max out speed and scarf it, you won't have a problem outspeeding it (I don't think scarf darkrai is very common). And if you're concerned about accuracy you could just use brick break instead. I'm just thinking that hitting it with a fighting attack right off the bat is much simpler than your strategy. And that way you don't waste so many move slots on 2 pokemon just to have a darkrai counter. If you'd rather use your strategy that's totally fine. I just think you're overthinking it a little :)

    I suppose that a choice scarf is a good choice. It's just that on PBR, it's the biggest obstacle I've ever had on Wi-Fi.

    Earthquake > Stone Edge then. Swampert gets it by Level >.>

    Darkrai isn't a threat to this team , your team can handle it with ease.
