Ursaring @ Flame Orb
Ability: Guts
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Close Combat
- Crunch
- Facade

Eelektross @ Assault Vest

Quiet Nature
- Volt Switch
- Giga Drain
- Knock Off
- Flamethrower

Gonna keep this short since I tried to make it wordy but it didn’t work out at all. Village Crusher Ursaring has no good switch-in on this team after Guts activates, and the two main things that would force it out, Archeops and Abomasnow, are dealt with by Eelektross. Furthermore, Eelektross can provide a slow Volt Switch into Ursaring, making Guts activate right then and there, and get rid of Type: Null and Bronzor’s Eviolites, making them unable to come in on Facade.

Reserving Skuntank + Gurdurr.

+

Skuntank @ Black Glasses
Ability: Aftermath
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Defog
- Crunch
- Pursuit
- Sucker Punch

Gurdurr @ Eviolite
Ability: Guts
EVs: 252 HP / 192 Atk / 64 Def
Adamant Nature
- Drain Punch
- Mach Punch
- Knock Off
- Bulk Up

Skuntank can easily threaten troublesome Psychic- and Ghost-types for Gurdurr in this case Musharna and Bronzor. Gurdurr deals with a lot of Pokemon that Skuntank struggles with such as Dark- and bulky Normal-types, in this case Type: Null.

192+ Atk Gurdurr Drain Punch vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Abomasnow: 312-368 (97.1 - 114.6%) -- 81.3% chance to OHKO
252+ SpA Life Orb Abomasnow Blizzard vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Eviolite Gurdurr: 234-277 (62.5 - 74%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252 Atk Black Glasses Skuntank Sucker Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Archeops: 156-184 (53.6 - 63.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO (Defeatist)
192+ Atk Gurdurr Drain Punch vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Gastrodon: 151-178 (35.4 - 41.7%) -- 84.5% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery (couple this with the fact that Gurdurr can easily set up Bulk Up's on Gastrodon)
252 Atk Black Glasses Skuntank Crunch vs. 252 HP / 144+ Def Eviolite Bronzor: 150-176 (47.1 - 55.3%) -- 71.5% chance to 2HKO
192+ Atk Gurdurr Knock Off (97.5 BP) vs. 252 HP / 144+ Def Eviolite Bronzor: 112-134 (35.2 - 42.1%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
192+ Atk Gurdurr Drain Punch vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Eviolite Type: Null: 152-182 (38.5 - 46.1%) -- guaranteed 3HKO (once again Gurdurr can easily set up Bulk Ups on Type: Null and also get rid of its item.)
252 Atk Black Glasses Skuntank Crunch vs. 240 HP / 252+ Def Musharna: 200-236 (46.1 - 54.5%) -- 55.5% chance to 2HKO

reserving Exeggutor-Alola, Sableye And Hitmonchan


Exeggutor-Alola @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Harvest
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Flamethrower
- Energy Ball
- Leech Seed
- Sleep Powder

Sableye @ Leftovers
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Calm Mind
- Dark Pulse
- Toxic
- Taunt

Hitmonchan @ Life Orb
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Ice Punch
- Rapid Spin
- Close Combat
- Bulk Up


So the first thing I notice with this team is that there is no Rapid Spin blocker. So I decided to the best known Rapid Spinner himself Hitmonchan. I also gave it Ice punch because I have nothing to cover Archeops apart from Energy ball but Energy Ball won't to that much damage. Sableye can take care of Musharna, Bronzer and maybe Type: Null cuz the only move Type: Null has is Return. Now with Musharna with fairium Z can OHKO Sableye but with 1-3 Calm Mind's it can survive Twinkle Tackle and can OHKO Musharna with Dark Pulse. And last, of all, i needed a grass type to take care of gastrdoon and i thought the best Grass-type to use IMO is Alolan-Exeggutor Because not only it can take care of Gastrdoon but can take care of Abomasnow because of Flamethrower.

Kingler @ Fightinium Z
Ability: Hyper Cutter
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Crabhammer
- Swords Dance
- Superpower
- Knock Off

Weezing @ Black Sludge
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 Spe
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Sludge Bomb
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp
- Toxic Spikes


Basically nothing stop Kingler at +2 and the only thing that outspeeds in Archeops and because Archeops lacks Taunt, Weezing can beat that 1v1. Also the team lacks hazard control and a grounded Poison type so T-Spikes really hurts this team, especially Pokemon like Gastrodon and Musharna. Taunt on Weezing is able to stop the whole team from recovering HP too.

  • +2 252+ Atk Kingler Knock Off (97.5 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Abomasnow: 328-386 (102.1 - 120.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
  • 252 Atk Archeops Acrobatics (110 BP) vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Kingler: 169-199 (67.3 - 79.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
  • +2 252+ Atk Kingler All-Out Pummeling (190 BP) vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Gastrodon: 415-489 (97.4 - 114.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
  • +2 252+ Atk Kingler Knock Off (97.5 BP) vs. 252 HP / 144+ Def Eviolite Bronzor: 272-322 (85.5 - 101.2%) -- 43.8% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
  • +2 252+ Atk Kingler Superpower vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Eviolite Type: Null: 398-470 (101 - 119.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
  • +2 252+ Atk Kingler Crabhammer vs. 240 HP / 252+ Def Musharna: 288-339 (66.5 - 78.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
 


Raticate-Alola @ Darkinium Z
Ability: Hustle
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Double-Edge
- Crunch
- Sucker Punch
- Swords Dance

Mesprit @ Colbur Berry
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Psychic
- U-turn
- Healing Wish


Pretty simple, Faticate just sets up on either Gastro, Bronzor or even Type: Null and wins, Mesprit sets up rocks to nab some 1hkos for it and has Healing Wish for a second sweeping attempt if Rat gets worn down by general wear or recoil (although it doesn't really need to click Double Edge for this team).

+2 252+ Atk Hustle Raticate-Alola Black Hole Eclipse (160 BP) vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Eviolite Type: Null: 402-474 (102 - 120.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252+ Atk Hustle Raticate-Alola Crunch vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Gastrodon: 397-468 (93.1 - 109.8%) -- 93.8% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
+2 252+ Atk Hustle Raticate-Alola Crunch vs. 240 HP / 252+ Def Musharna: 464-548 (107.1 - 126.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252+ Atk Hustle Raticate-Alola Crunch vs. 252 HP / 144+ Def Eviolite Bronzor: 338-402 (106.2 - 126.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252+ Atk Hustle Raticate-Alola Sucker Punch vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Abomasnow: 357-421 (111.2 - 131.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252+ Atk Hustle Raticate-Alola Sucker Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Archeops: 360-424 (123.7 - 145.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO
