At +2, Lucario will easily OHKO Volcarona, Dragonite after SR and Starmie with Extremespeed, while Terrakion is murdered by Bullet Punch. Lucario can grab the boost on Ferrothorn and easily dismantle your team, unless Volcarona gets a lucky Flame Body burn. You might want to consider a more offensive spread of 164 HP / 168 Atk / 176 Spd with a Jolly nature on Jirachi. Ferrothorn is already bulky enough to take any Draco Meteors or Outrage, so Jirachi is not really missing the loss. You will be surprised that CB Close Combat still fails to OHKO as well as Specs Hydro Pump from Politoed; Timid Magnezone only achieves a 3HKO on this Jirachi. With the given EVs, Jirachi reaches 308 Speed which could be advantageous as you can spread faster paralysis on pokemons like Gyarados, before they do a Sub. Fire Punch will be able to OHKO Lucario after a CC drop, so it makes him a decent check to him. However, if you want to lure him more safely to a CC drop you can replace Wish for Substitute although this leaves Terrakion and Ferrothorn without recovery.
Very solid team and I hope my rate helps you out :).
Alrighty, this seems like a solid idea, so I will have to try this out. I haven't met a Lucario yet, so I'm glad you suggested this before it happened:)
Something I have noticed while playing is that Terrakion is serving a very limited purpose. Volcarona can sweep every so often, and will usually get in a KO or two. Dragonite has surpassed my expectations. He's easy to set up, and once it is set up, my opponent has some problems. Jirachi and Ferrothorn work the way they should, although I'll try Motuaga's EV spread on Jirachi, and test that out. Starmie does its job, which is all I can ask of it. Terrakion, however, is hard to get in and set up, although once that happens, it wrecks. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to improve this problem?
