Hello guys, I am pretty new to competitive pokemon battling and I created a team that does ok but I feel like it can be so much better. I want to post it and hopefully get some feedback on how it can be improved.
Item: Light Clay
Ability: Magic Bounce
Moves: Reflect, light screen, psychic, baton pass
EV's: 252 HP, 4 SpA, 252 Spe
Espeon is used as a possible starter to reflect spike set ups while setting up screens. It is also a pretty fast psychic user which is a plus. I have baton pass as an escape from pursuit users just in case I run into one.
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Iron Fist
Moves: Overheat, U-Turn, Mach Punch, Close Combat
EV's: 252 Atk, 4SpA, 252 Spe
Infernape is used for type diversity. I have him as a counter for popular stall pokemon like ferrothorn and chansey. I also use him as a scout sometimes using U-turn.
Item: Choice Band
Moves: U-Turn, Bullet Punch, Pursuit, Superpower
EV's: 248 HP, 252 Atk, 8 SpD
My main purpose for scizor is to outspeed pokemon like landorus. I have absolutely no idea how to counter them effectively so having a steel type with priority was my first thought. The choice band is for obvious purposes but I hate getting locked into moves
Item: Life Orb
Moves: psyshock, draco meteor, surf, thunder
EV's: 4 HP, 252 SpA, 252 Spe
Latios is my #1 sweeper. He is very fast and has some good moves but most of my moves don't kill unless they are supereffective even with the life orb. I have thunder as a rain team counter but this doesn't work as often as I'd like.
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Rough Skin
Moves: Stealth Rock, Outrage, Earthquake, Swords Dance
EV's: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spe
Garchomp is used as a physical dragon sweep as well as setting up rocks. He has focus sash so that he can take a hit from a rival dragon and possibly kill with outrage. He is mainly on the team as a dragon-killer.
Moves: volt switch, Hydro pump, Will-o-wisp, Pain split
EV's: 232 HP, 56 SpA, 220 Spe
Rotom is on the team because of his typing. He is immune to ground attacks and can scout with his volt switch. He also is a rain counter.
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
