Espeon @ Light Clay Trait: Magic Bounce EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Light Screen - Reflect - Psychic - Baton Pass Espeon is the first of the two supporting Pokemon on my team, providing hazard reflection and screen support to my two sweepers. This is a standard set, like the rest of my team, but I still have several important choices to make, such as the last move here. Baton Pass is standard, but has never really been very useful. Since Magnezone handles Scizor well enough, I'm considering HP Fighting to hit Tyranitar, the only other Pursuiter I'm likely to encounter. Magnezone @ Leftovers Trait: Magnet Pull EVs: 36 HP / 252 SAtk / 220 Spd Timid Nature - Thunderbolt - Substitute - Hidden Power [Fire] - Flash Cannon The "Mag" in DragMag, Magnezone crushes most Steel-types, allowing me to freely spam Dragon-type moves. Magnezone's function in the team extends past offense, though, since it also possesses decent bulk, as well as perfect type synergy with Salamence, Dragonite, and Latios. Therefore, it's a fairly safe switchin if one of my dragons is threatened. Magnezone's main problem is that it's easy for my opponent to predict and switch out their Steel-type as I switch in, forcing me to either use Magnezone only as a revenge trapper, or outpredict them, something I've always had trouble with. Latios (M) @ Choice Specs Trait: Levitate EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Timid Nature - Draco Meteor - Dragon Pulse - Surf - Trick Latios, while not able to plow through entire teams the way Salamence and Dragonite can, still combines speed, bulk, and incredible power, making him an excellent lead. Dragon Pulse is my STAB of choice, 2KOing virtually everything that isn't Steel type. Surf rounds out my coverage, while Trick gives me another out against annoying Steel types, as well as other walls like Blissey; if I can predict the pink blob, she'll be useless for the rest of the match. Despite Draco Meteor's extreme power, I'm generally hesitant to use it, not wanting to be forced to switch out afterwards. Garchomp @ Choice Scarf Trait: Rough Skin EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd Jolly Nature - Outrage - Earthquake - Stone Edge - Dragon Claw Due to my lack of bulky Pokemon and defensive synergy, a revenge killer is crucial for my team, a role Garchomp fills perfectly with it's good Speed and already-high Attack. Once Steels have been removed, he can also serve as a cleaner, mopping up most or all of my opponent's team with a deadly Outrage. Having a second STAB in Dragon Claw is very useful as well, allowing me to attempt to revenge kill Lati@s and the like earlygame without being locked in if Ferrothorn or similar switches in. Dragonite @ Lum Berry Trait: Multiscale EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd Adamant Nature - Dragon Dance - Dragon Claw - ExtremeSpeed - Fire Punch No one can deny that Dragonite is one of the top threats of the the 5th gen metagame; with Dragon Dance, base 134 Attack, good bulk, and Multiscale to ensure setup, it can punch a hole through virtually any team. Given the theme of my team, Dragonite is an obvious inclusion. With two Outrage spammers already, I like having Dragon Claw for a more consistent early-game, especially since Dragonite has a very easy time getting up a Dragon Dance. Since Ferrothorn and Forretress are the most threatening Steels to this set, Fire Punch is used over Earthquake to hit them much harder. Extremespeed allows me to hit Scarfers who outspeed me even at +1, and allows Dragonite to serve as a second revenger if needed. Salamence @ Lum Berry Trait: Moxie EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd Naive Nature - Dragon Dance - Earthquake - Outrage - Fire Blast Whereas Dragonite represents a somewhat more restrained setup, Salamence represents raw power. It has a somewhat difficult time setting up without Screen support from Espeon, but once it does, it's usually game, with Moxie allowing to crush even Steel-types after a Moxie boost or two. As useful as it is on Dragonite, Lum Berry is critical to this set, allowing me to spam Outrage for twice as long, virtually insuring a sweep. It also has some nice utility use, allowing me to set up on bulky Politoed, Jellicent, etc. without fear of a Scald burn.
