    Hoo boy...

    Overall, everything here ranges from poor to awful. Same-type attacks on sets used repeatedly (Thunder Fang + Thunder = Very bad,) very poor item use overall (Protect + Choice Scarf?) and I wish Leafeon could learn Sleep Powder and PoisonPowder legitimately...translated, that means your Leafeon is a hack...and all that is just scratching the surface of the problems present here.

    Read this thread here:

    ...and fix your team using the advice given from the link.

    Also, arrange your team/moves etc. like this in the future:

    Pokemon @ Hold Item
    Nature
    Ability

    - Move 1
    - Move 2
    - Move 3
    - Move 4

    It makes things much, much easier to read.

    And for that matter learn to spell your PokeMon's names correctly. >>;
     
  4. There are many things wrong with the team

    First off, your Luxray. like King of Lucario said, Thunder and Thunder Fang is a really bad combo. Also, an Oran Berry isn't going to help your Luxray at all. If this is from Platinum, May i suggest Magnet Rise? It could be a really good move for him considering it prevents him from getting hit by Ground-type moves.

    Secondly, Typhlosion. Again, Choice Scarf and Protect, really bad. Since Quick attack has a power of 40, may I suggest getting rid of it and replacing it with something like Fire Blast or Blast Burn? It may be slower, but also more powerful.

    Other thn that, your team could need some leveling up and stronger moves.

    If I may interject...

    ...there are a few flaws with your advice there, POH!KEMON. First of all, Magnet Rise on Luxray with its bad Speed is usually suicidal - Magnet Rise is very rarely an viable option on any moveset unless you have godly prediction skills, especially on a Pokemon as slow as Luxray, since that Earthquake will likely end up coming in before your Magnet Rise can take effect, which = dead Luxray. If you really fear Ground-type attacks, Shuca Berry is a far more reliable option than Magnet Rise unless you have either the speed or the defenses to get away with setting Magnet Rise up.

    Also, Blast Burn? Blast Burn shouldn't be on ANY moveset, ever. Quick Attack on a Choice Scarf set is pointless, but Quick Attack itself most certainly isn't - Base 40 power means absolutely nothing when Quick Attack is used on a severely wounded opponent - which is what you'd always use it on anyway if you have it. Quick Attack and other priority moves should not be underestimated.

    Although your advice wasn't exactly bad, it had some glaring flaws. Make sure it doesn't happen again though, because flawed advice will always result in an equally flawed team.
     
  6. I'll keep that in mind...
