    Hey guys, heres the first team ive ever made. Im new to competitive battling, and im making more and more teams as i go. So far, Ive come to the conclusion of this team from the help of my friend who use to be AMAZING at pokemon.

    First up is my Lead/Tank
    Swampert @ Leftovers
    Ability: Torrent
    EVs: 248 HP / 232 Atk / 216 Defence / 44 Speed
    Relaxed Nature
    - Stealth Rock
    - Surf
    - Ice Beam
    - Earthquake
    Basically, soon as i startup i SR, and take out any obvious threats.

    Mixed Attacker
    Tyranitar @ Expert Belt
    Ability: Sand Stream
    EVs: 56 Atk / 252 SpA / 200 Spe
    Naive Nature
    - Flamethrower
    - Ice Beam
    - Thunderbolt
    - Superpower
    Basically, Flamethrower to take out any steel/grass/bugs, and Icebeam to take out flying/dragon types. Thunderbolts main purpose is for Gyarados, which poses as quite a threat to Tyranitar. Superpower for Heatran (what i was told)

    Sword Dance Sweeper
    Lucario @ Life Orb
    Ability:Inner Focus
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpAtk)
    - Swords Dance
    - Close Combat
    - ExtremeSpeed
    - Stone Edge
    Basically, i use him for SD to CC or SE. With stealth Rock setup already, Stone Edge and Close combat can take out most pokemon easily.

    Starmie @ Leftovers
    Ability: Natural Cure
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature
    - Rapid Spin
    - Surf
    - Recover
    - Thunderbolt
    Basically, If any spikes or anything is out, i can rapid spin it out with starmie. Starmie posts a threat to Gyarados, and many other water types since it has thunderbolt, and Surf can easily take out a heatran or any hard ground/Fire Types. Recover can be used after a switch from spikes that needed a rapid spin to get rid of.

    Dragon Dance Sweeper
    Salamence @ Life Orb
    Ability: Intimidate
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    Jolly Nature
    - Dragon Dance
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Flamethrower
    Basically, Dragon dance to Outrage could do decent damage, as well as flamethroewer and earthquake. Flamethrower makes a major threat to most pokemon that i have seen in previous teams, as well as earthquake.

    Offensive Dragon Dancer
    Dragonite @ Life Orb
    Ability: Inner Focus
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpAtk)
    - Dragon Dance
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - ExtremeSpeed
    Another Dragon Dancer, pretty much the same as Salamence.

    Im up for alot of tweaks in this team, and i can even switchout alot. What i was thinking is Maybe adding
    Cresselia - Really good tank
    Forretress - Lead Rapid Spinner and Stealth Rock, perfect for setting up

    My main idea was switching Forretress with Swampert, and switching Starmie for Cresselia. Considering that Forretress could provide an excellent setup with Stealth Rock, as well as counter any spikes/Stealth Rocks flung towards me. Cresselia could be swapped for starmie, as its still a psychic type and has amazing tanking skills. I was thinking of having the cresselia with calm mind, and maybe psychic to smash some things up.

    Another idea was to switch TTar to a Ghost/Psychic Hunter, by adding Crunch/Persuit. Ive used this team a few times, and got raped by Gengar.

    First off, you have too many setup sweepers, and secondly, Salamence is Uber in DPP.

    I just see way too many problems with this team. Every time I think of ways to fix it, I end up basically changing everything. Sorry, but I can't rate this. My advice is for you to make another team, actually test it, THEN post it.
