  1. Here is my team: (EV spread is HP/Atk/Def/SpAtk/SpDef/Spd)

    Lucario@Muscle band Job: Starter and Phys. Sweeper
    Nature: Adamant EVs: 6/252/0/0/0/252
    Close Combat
    Blaze Kick
    Stone Edge
    Shadow Claw
    Notes: My best option as a starter Poke. Blaze Kick for Heracross and Lucario, while CC for STAB. Edge does Fire types and stops Togekiss. Shadow Claw handles unsuspecting Gengars and company.

    Spiritomb@ Leftovers Job: Mixed Wall
    Nature: Careful EVs: 252/0/128/0/128/0
    Shadow Sneak
    Pain Split
    Notes: I know the 128 Def. EVs may be confusing, but I wanted Spiritomb to serve as a Mixed Wall, because that really aids my team. Pursuit for obvious reasons, and SS gives me a chance against Heracross and Infernape. W-o-W is easily needed, and Pain Split to handle the HP problem.

    Blissey@ Leftovers Job: Cleric and Sp. Wall
    Nature: Bold EVs: 252/0/252/6/0/0
    Healing Wish
    Seismic Toss
    Notes: NO!!! BLISSEY!!! I chose Healing Wish over Wish, becauss Wish has not proven quite as useful as HW. Also, I don't have to switch Blissey out if I want to heal a Poke, which is easier. Softboiled is for stalling.

    Slowbro@ Leftovers Job: Tank
    Nature: Bold EVs 252/0/252/6/0/0
    Ice Beam
    Slack Off
    Notes: My favorite Tank ever. Surf for STAB, and Ice Beam handles Grass and Dragon types. Slack Off is for extra health when needed. Amnesia > Calm Mind, because 1) Slowbro already has enough SpAtk to deal serious damage, and doesn't need CM, and 2) Amnesia strengthens Slowbro's weak point quicker and makes him nearly invincible.

    Salamence@ Life Orb Job: Phys. Sweeper
    Naturr: Hasty EVs: 6/252/0/0/0/252
    Dragon Claw
    Stone Edge
    Notes: I chose a Hasty nature for Salamence, because he already has a plethora of Atk, and he needs extra Speed to outspeed Choice Scarf-ers. DC for STAB, Flamethrower for Skarmory, Forretress, etc., and EQ and Edge are for serious type-trumping.

    Sceptile@ Wise Glasses Job: Sp. Sweeper
    Nature: Modest EVs: 6/0/0/252/0/252
    Energy Ball
    Dragon Pulse
    Focus Blast
    Hidden Power (Rock, Power is 65)
    Notes: My favorite Poke, ever! Energy Ball > Leaf Storm for two simple reasons: Stealth Rock and Spikes. I cannot use a move that would halt my sweeping without switching, and it would leave my team very vulnerable, due to my lack of a Spinner. It's as simple as that. Focus Blast for type trumping, and DP for Salamence and the like. HP easily helps with Heracross, Charizard, Staraptor, Aerodactyl and a lot of other threats. I lucked out majorly with that one.

    *Note* I'm not going to use Choice items for the same reason as I'm not using Leaf Storm on Sceptile.

    Okay, any advice? Movesets that should altered? Any criticism is appreciated.
  2. On the fact on HP Fire, Infernape taks neutral damag from Rock Attacks.
    Shadow Claw can be replaced by Crunch. They both cover the same types.
    Healing Wish works only if the Pokemon faints, right?
    SoftBoiled works better and Leftovers can work as an item. If you want both Healing Wish and Softboiled to stall opponents, Get rid of Ice Beam and T-Bolt and put in Seismic Toss.

    Other wise, a very soild team. Test it out and you'll see what you can improve on later.
  3. HP Rock covers most of Sceptile's threats, at least. I guess I'll need to switch to Slowbro.
    Okay, I'll consider rebreeding Lucario for Crunch.
    Yeah, but HW fully recovers the next pokemon, which is ever so useful.
    Alright, I'll use that moveset instead.
    Thank for your advice.
  4. Bump; any more people to RMT?
