    I have heart gold and I was thinking this as a team (I've tested it out in the online battle sims and I haven't been doing well...)


    Swampert

    Ability: torrent

    Nature: Bold
    200 att ev
    126 def ev
    126 spe def ev
    56 hp ev

    Item: leftovers


    Moveset:
    earthquake
    Waterfall
    roar
    Ice beam


    I've been using him as my lead alot due to his awesome bulk and typing... I like to roar anything that is boosting too. He seems to do well as an all around tank, being able to take anything that isn't grass... I was thinking about replacing a move with rest.


    Gengar

    Ability: levitate (duh)

    Nature: serious
    252 spec att ev
    252 speed ev
    4hp ev

    Item: focus sash


    Moveset:
    substitute
    pain split
    shadow ball
    t-bolt


    gengar is a great sweeper and I really like being able to havesome surviability with sub/painsplit... but he falls quickly even with all this. If only I could think of someway to set up a good sweep with him.


    Typhlosion

    Ability: blaze

    Nature: serious
    252 spec att evs
    252 speed evs
    4 hp evs

    Item: heat rock


    Moveset:
    sunny day
    flamethrower
    solarbeam
    eruption


    A pretty darn good sweeping moveset, in my opinion. I decimated 4 of the opponets team with it. Sadly, I loose him a lot with stealth rocks.


    Tyrannitar

    Ability: sand stream

    Nature: docile
    252 att ev
    126 def ev
    126 spec def ev

    Item: chesto berry


    Moveset:
    earthquake
    rest
    stone edge
    crunch


    I know I'm doing something wrong with him... several matches and I haven't managed a ko with this dude... and tyranitar is supposedly one of the most feared in OU!!! well, I thought it would be good to dole out chunks of damage and then rest it all away...


    Scizor

    Ability: Technician

    Nature: Adamant
    4 hp ev
    252 att ev
    126 def ev
    126 spec def ev

    Item: choice band


    Moveset:
    bug bite
    aerial ace
    bullet punch
    roost


    I like scizor... but I'm also doing something wrong with him. when ever I start racking up damage, I can't seem to ko and my opponent often switches to a wall I can't counter with sheer force... plus I'm usually resisted :P so i'm switching and losing more turns

    Dragonite

    Ability: inner focus

    Nature: Serious
    4 hp ev
    252 att ev
    252 spec att ev

    Item: life orb


    Moveset:
    earthquake
    dragon claw
    roost
    extreme speed


    I realized as I was writing this: why the heck do I have ev's in special attack?! besides that, Dragonite has also had difficculties with stealth rocks and spikes. I think he's good; but there is something seriously flawed with him...


    Therefore, I know I have good pokemon who I think can really work; it's just that I have some execution issues... any help would be nice

    Also, If anyone knows how to put in pictures of my pokemon that would be nice!!!

    follow the smogon analyses, wherever you're getting your movesets from, every single one is crap. your EVs aren't even being used and stealth rock is no where on this team. your items and natures don't make sense either. serious and docile? there's a reason i had to actually look up what those did.

    scizor losing turns because he cannot switch? that's is the opposite of a scizor problem. if scizor has that problem ever, it's not scizor. go look at the analysis.

    focus sash + substitute on gengar? you're so smart.

    -atk nature + 2 physical moves on swampert, omg you're a genius.

    i really can't think of why you're not doing well.

    Dude,

    I just came here beccaue I knew that my team was having issues. I chose those natures because it was what I had (except for swampert... I really hope I meant brave).

    You see things like gengar with focus sash and sub I don't know about... I thought it would be a good idea. I really have very little experience battling online.

    I really appreciate that you replied so quickly, I just wish I had more to work off of than the general "your team is crap." I want to know if this team can work. I need advice on how it can work. I'l take another look at the smogon movesets too; but I don't want to have a predictable poke team.

    i am genuinely sorry for that, but the analyses are really just right there.
    try to find mostly or all OU pokemon and make a team out of that, otherwise there is not a good chance it'll do well even if built well.

    Well, by the way you said that you only had those natures to work with, this must mean that you are playing with an actual team you bred yourself. Well, the first tip I can give is that you need to go and look at some of the analysis on the main page of smogon. These will help give you ev spreads, natures, and also movesets for your pokemon. The natures of a lot of your pokemon don't help them at all, so, if you need to breed for better pokemon, then you need to breed for better pokemon. You aren't going to win games with sub par ones, you need the best you can get. What you can do is you can go around on the trade forums. A lot of people use the cloning method, and if you explain to them your situation, then I'm sure a ton of them would be willing to help out. But, the analysis on the main page really do help out a lot. I would suggest starting out reading those for whichever pokemon you want to use, and use that as a reference. Hope I helped out a bit. And also, tell somebody if a poster is rude to you when giving a rate, because I think that's one of the rules of rating, which is to not be rude and to give as much help as possible, no matter how bad the team is.
