    I started this team out wanting/needing a lead, magic bounce, entry hazards and general balance. I started out with picking pokemon i really like using and then i modified the team to account for other members weaknesses.

    Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Sturdy
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
    Lax Nature (+Def, -SDef)
    - Roost
    - Whirlwind
    - Brave Bird
    - Stealth Rock

    Skarmory fills the role of a lead and setting up entry hazards. Skarmory works really well it walls all physical lead and has the ability to phaze pokemon who like to set up. Works really well with other leads who want to set up entry hazards as i can swap to espeon.

    Breloom (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Spore
    - Mach Punch
    - Bullet Seed
    - Swords Dance

    LOVE THIS DUDE! He is my favourite pokemon to work with. I personally love the sub puncher more but i needed some priority on the team. Idea behind Breloom, spore - swords dance - sweep. His fire weakness is covered by shandelure who gets the flash fire boost which rapes.

    Espeon (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Magic Bounce
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Calm Mind
    - Psychic
    - Wish
    - Protect

    Magic bounce. Such a handy thing to have on a team. Can provide wish support to the team as well as calm mind up and sweep. The EVs are the way they are so espeon can take more SDef hits as i dont have a lot of SDef bulk in the team.

    Chandelure (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Shadow Ball
    - Fire Blast
    - Psychic
    - Energy Ball

    Provides flash fire. Fire is a weakness to skarmory and breloom and the flash fire + Chandelure SAtt is some real power. Hes scarfed to add some speed to the team. Moveset pretty common

    Electivire (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Motor Drive
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - ThunderPunch
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Punch
    - Cross Chop

    Newest member of the team. I wanted a pokemon who could take the electric weakness of gyarados and skarmory. I originally was using a gliscor but i already had another physical wall so it didn't really add thing. Electivire gets the Motor Drive boost and with his really good coverage moveset can really do some damage to teams.

    Gyarados (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 156 HP / 72 Atk / 96 Def / 184 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Dragon Dance
    - Waterfall
    - Stone Edge
    - Bounce

    Another Earthquake immunity. I really love this set. It can switch in on so many pokemon and set up a DD. With a DD you can most times K0 1 pokemon which means another attack boost. This works well. The water pokemon is also very handy

    Hope you can understand everything im saying. Rate the team. Cheers

    this is a pretty good looking team. I do however, suggest switching bounce on gyarados because you'll have a weakness against rain teams (thunder can hit pokemon in the air)

    Hi pretty good team.

    For electivire I would add wild charge other then thunder punch sense its the newer and the better physical electric move.

    Also I would watch out with those weather teams sense a dorozu can really sweep you team maybe you can add a standered azumarill instead of maybe your gyrados.

    Azumarill (M) @ Choice Band
    Trait: Huge Power
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    Adament Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Aqua Jet
    - waterfall
    - Superpower/ Double edge
    - Ice punch

    Also in my opinion espeon would be better with stored power then psychic sense you have a calm mind set.

    Hope i helped.(:

    He doesn't need Azumarill to beat Excadrill, he has Techniloom. This is a Dream World team btw, you should put it in the title (it's in the prefix thing)

    Since it's Dream World use Shadow Tag instead of Flash Fire on Chandelure, it allows you to revenge kill anything you want.

    Is there any sense in Skarmory having a -SDef nature, or just a typing error? Impish would be right, I think.

    Thanks for the help thats really good handy. I changed the nature of Skarmory that was just an error. I really like flash fire on chandelure because he gets the boost and it gives full immunity to fire. Thunderpunch is the best electric move for electivire as the only other physical is a move that has recoil and im not a fan of that. Ill try out a azumarill and ill let you guys know
    Thanks for all the help much appreciated
