    Hey guys, please check out my UU team. This is my first UU team and I've been winning about 60%-70% of battles. Can anyone tell me if there are any holes in the team that I am not seeing? Thanks much

    Team at a glance


    Chandelure (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 Def
    Timid Nature
    - Overheat
    - Shadow Ball
    - Energy Ball
    - Hidden Power [Ice]

    Chandelure is my fast special sweeper. Moveset provides good coverage for most types

    Heracross (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    Adamant Nature
    - Close Combat
    - Megahorn
    - Stone Edge
    - Earthquake

    Heracross is late-game physical sweeper and revenge killer. Scarf helps revenge kill. Moveset also for good coverage

    Porygon2 @ Eviolite
    Trait: Download
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Modest Nature
    - Tri Attack
    - Ice Beam
    - Thunderbolt
    - Recover

    Porygon2 is special tank(don't know the right term here. Tanking while using s. atk.). Really hard to kill and has the BoltBeam combo for coverage and tri-attack for anything else

    Bronzong @ Leftovers
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 SDef / 252 HP / 252 Def
    Relaxed Nature
    IVs: 0 Spd
    - Stealth Rock
    - Gyro Ball
    - Earthquake
    - Toxic

    Stealth Rocker + Wall. Has stealth rock setup + toxic. Gyro and Quake are so it isn't helpless against taunt

    Crobat (M) @ Black Sludge
    Trait: Inner Focus
    EVs: 60 HP / 192 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature
    - U-turn
    - Taunt
    - Roost
    - Toxic

    Crobat is scout. Crobat has taunt to stop set-ups, u-turn to scout, toxic if it can survive the first hit, and roost for health regen

    Sharpedo (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Speed Boost
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - Protect
    - Waterfall
    - Earthquake
    - Crunch

    Sharpedo is physical sweeper. Protect guarantees at least 1 spd boost and waterfall, crunch are STAB moves that go nearly unresisted in UU. Earthquake is for Empoleon which is the only one who resists both STAB moves

    Please comment and provide suggestions or criticisms. Thanks all :)

    Considering it isn't holding Specs and it also has no way to remove its SAtk loss other than by switching, why not try Flamethrower over Overheat on Chandelure?

    Flamethrower deals enough damage with that insane amounf of SAtk, you don't need to go overkill with Overheat (besides, it has worse accuracy & PP)

    azeem40 Pokemon is fun!

    This is a competitive battling team against other players on wifi, so I'd use Fire Blast > Flamethrower. Flamethrower is reserved for Pokemon like Blissey whose damage output would not be any better with Fire Blast. The difference between the two moves on Chandy is big. Just as an example, against 4 HP/0 SpD Volcarona with =nature, Fire Blast coming from 252 SpA and a neutral nature does 88.46% - 104.17% (a 37.5% Chance to OHKO) while Flamethrower does only 70.19% - 82.69%.
