I am trying to make a sandstorm semi-stall team, and this is what I've come up with- Latias @ Soul Dew Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 HP / 120 SDef / 136 Spd Calm Nature - Light Screen - Roar - Roost - Dragon Pulse Gliscor @ Toxic Orb Trait: Poison Heal EVs: 252 HP / 40 Def / 216 Spd Impish Nature - Substitute - Taunt - Toxic - Earthquake Scizor @ Lefovers Trait: Technician EVs: 248HP / 60 Atk / 200 SDef Careful Nature - Roost - U-Turn - Bullet Punch - Pursuit/Swords Dance Basically, I put Latias to deal with Kyogre and Gliscor handles Groudon. Then, I thought of using a steel-type, and Scizor came to my mind. Better special bulk than Forry, reliable recovery, an offensive prescence and great synergy with both teammates. 1) Should I use Hippowdon or Tyranitar? It's simple - Hippo is a physical wall while Tyranitar is a special sponge, so I can use them according to what threatens my team. Speaking of which... 2) Any significant threats to this core? Gliscor+Latias+ Scizor has perfect synergy, but I'm sure there is something that can break through the trio (or maybe not). 3) SD on Scizor? That thing can get up to +6 with amazing ease on certain things (read: Lugia), and offers me a second back-up sweeper other than my main one (probably Excadrill/Chomp, but I'm also thinking of trying out Double dancer Terrakion). This is because I feel Pursuit trapping isn't really good in Ubers. Mewtwo OHKOes with Fire Blast and Giratina/Ghostceus can just burn me. Also, if I go with Tyranitar, I can use Pursuit on it.
