Knights and Ghosts
This team consists of Ferroseed as a hazard laying lead, Blastoise as a rapid spinner,, Bisharp as a physical sweeper, chandelure as a sub special sweeper, and Raikou as a Sub-Calm Mind sweeper.
Ferroseed (F) @ Eviolite
Trait: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 18 Atk / 120 Def / 120 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
- Gyro Ball
- Thunder Wave
Ferroseed is my standard lead, as it can easily lay down entry hazards. I realize thunder wave and gyro ball are not the beast combo but with ferroseeds extremely slow speed it can still work and make the Paralyzed pokemon easy to revenge kill.
Bisharp (F) @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)/ Adamant (+Atk, - SAtk)
- Night Slash
- Iron Head
- Aerial Ace/Stone Edge
- Brick Break
Bisharp can work well even without its main priority Sucker Punch. Its decent 262 speed and great 349 attack with a jolly nature makes it a big threat. Its coverage is also nice as nothing resist all of Bisharps attacks. Instead of Jolly nature, it could run an Adamant nature and make the Agility passed from Gligar even more usefull because of its 383 attack instead of 349.
Chandelure (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Shadow Ball
- Energy Ball
Chandelure is a great special sweeper in UU. it has good coverage and its ghost typing makes it a spin blacker. The sub life orb set works best for this team because when Chandelure forces a switch, it can set up a sub and hit the incoming poke with a harder hit than the sub leftover set. The only problem is that it has no form of recovery.
Gligar (F) @ Eviolite
Trait: Hyper Cutter
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Baton Pass
Gligar works as my phisical wall for this team. It has the ability to stall with roost, set up Swords Dances or Agility for other pokes, or just attack with a stab Earthquake. The main poke it should be Baton Passing to is bisharp, as Gligar can up his attack or boost his speed to make it even more deadly of a sweeper.
Blastoise (M) @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 52 Atk / 100 Def / 100 SDef / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Rapid Spin
- Aqua Jet
- Dragon Tail
Blastoise has a good amount of jobs on this team (probably too many). First of all, he is a rapid spinner to get rid of rocks and spikes that can damage my two sweepers. Secondly, Aqua Jet can revenge kill and weak pokes, and the adamant allows it to kill some with resistance to water. With Scald and Dragon Tail i can stop a sweep by burning or phasing the opponent.
Raikou @ Leftovers
EVs: 76 Def / 252 SAtk / 180 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Calm Mind
Raikou has one job and one job only-to set up on walls and weaker special sweepers. It has good SAtk and good Speed., but many walls cary earthquake, and if they are not two hit KOed by Raikou, they will easily take him out.

Having two eviolite users can leave you prone to Trick users. Also, instead of Raikou have you considered Crobat as your wall breaker? It has immunity to earthquake, which you claim to have trouble against, and its ability to use taunt and superfang/toxic make it amazing at its role.

@Triceratopps, i will try out crobat instead of raikou as he hasn't done much except for die.

CM Raikou is a extremely dangerous threat. If you are feeling like it just sits there and dies, maybe you are not using it correctly. As for changes, Roar instead of Dragon Tail on Blastoise might be better to prevent Sub Boosters (mainly Kingdra) to freely set up on you

Bulk Up Scrafty, Dragon Dance Scrafty, and Swords Dance Mienshao are all huge threats to your team. Blastoise cannot touch Scrafty, and is cleanly 1HKO'd by Mienshao's Hi Jump Kick. Therefore, I would recommend using a revenge killer capable of stopping both these threats in their path: Scarf Heracross.
Heracross (M) @ Choice Scarf Trait: Moxie
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
Your team desperately needs a revenge killer to stop Scrafty, Mienshao, Raikou, and many other mons from sweeping your team clean. This set also acts as a pseudo-sweeper because after every kill it gets an attack boost, and becomes almost impossible to stop. You could also try out Scarf Mienshao in this teamslot, because it is capable of revenging a +2 DD Scrafty. Bisharp is not doing much for your team ATM, and fails to do significant damage after getting a speed boost.
Also, every Gligar should have Immunity, which is by far it's most useful ability.You might also want to try Stealth Rock over Agility on Gligar and Leech Seed over Stealth Rock on Ferroseed, with Bisharp gone there is no real reason to have Agility. Anyway, cool team and I hope I helped
