    This is my first ever OU team!
    I am new to Smogon, but I am not an inexperienced pokemon trainer.
    Well,enough talk i shall show you my OU team.Enjoy!

    Espeon (F) @ Light Clay
    Trait: Magic Bounce
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252def /4 HP or 252HP/252spd/4sp.def
    Serious Nature
    - Light Screen
    - Baton Pass
    - Calm Mind
    - Reflect
    My not so much trusted lead.It is quite fragile in its defences, but it is a good sp.attacker.I am chosing this as my lead because I have tried other leads but they havent worked well enough.Calm Mind is to power up my only sp.sweeper,Jolteon,with Baton Pass.

    Dragonite @ Leftovers
    Trait: Multiscale
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
    Adamant Nature

    - ExtremeSpeed
    - Dragon Claw
    - Earthquake
    My 2nd most trusted sweeper.Its wide range of moves come in handy.Fire Punch is for coverage,and Dragon Claw for STAB.Earthquake is just useful.
    And then Extremespeed for faster pokemon and finishing off.Multiscale is EPIC when trying to face off with super effective pokemon.

    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
    Adamant Nature

    - Earthquake
    - Ice Fang
    My most trusted sweeper.DD is a move i dont often use bacaase of gyarados's fragility.Earthquake is for coverage, Waterfall is for STAB and Ice Fang is just useful.

    Welcome to Smogon! I have a few things.

    **Make sure your summary of your teammates is a little longer. You don't want your thread locked due to a short summary.**

    -Espeon has too many EV's on its set; it should be 252 HP, 4 Def, and 252 Spe. The HP helps give Espeon extra bulk, speed to get the Screens up, and defense for priority attacks. Also, never use any of the neutral natures, such as Serious or Quirky. They are useless in the metagame. Use Timid for Espeon.

    -Your team has a horrible weakness to SR, and Landorus. Landorus can come in and completely wreck your team with EdgeQuake, due to its high speed and power attack. To fix that, I suggest Life Orb Starmie to replace Arcanine. Arcanie doesn't help your team much, and you have enough physical attackers. Here is the recommended set for Starmie:


    Starmie @ Life Orb
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
    Timid Nature
    - Ice Beam
    - Hydro Pump / Surf
    - Thunderbolt
    - Rapid Spin

    This set will help rid of the Stealth Rock weakness, and handle Landorus. Most of your team gets defeated by Landorus; Starmie will be able to go in and take care of it. It gives Starmie variety, power with Life Orb, and Rapid Spin.

    -Also, your team lacks a Scarfer, which is vitally important in teams like yours, to revenge kill most of the metagame. I suggest have a Kyurem-B Scarf set. Power Herb is pretty useless to this metagame; it wastes an item slot; moves like Freeze Shock, Fly, Dive, etc, shouldn't be used in the metagame. Here is the set I recommend:


    Kyurem-Black @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Teravolt
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SAtk
    Naughty Nature
    - Fusion Bolt
    - Outrage
    - Ice Beam / Earth Power
    - Dragon Claw
    Kyurem-B makes a great Scarfer with its unmatched power, and good speed. Fusion Bolt/Outrage as STAB, Dragon Claw if you don't wish to be locked onto Outrage. Ice Beam and Earth Power are your preferences; Ice Beam for a second STAB, or Earth Power with more coverage. Naughty nature for more power.

    -For Jolteon, Signal Beam > Shadow Ball, as Signal Beam can take Psychic and Dark Types, while Shadow Ball doesn't give much coverage.

    -Finally, I'd suggest a Dragon Dance Dragonite Set to your Dragonite. Having it all attack moves with Leftovers doesn't let Dragonite show it's true power and potential. Also, with Multiscale, (par SR isn't up) you have a free round to set up. On your set, change EarthQuake to Dragon Dance, and consider Lum Berry, which aids in Dragonite's setup, due to removing any Toxic or Paralysis status on D-nite that prevents it from sweeping.

    Summary (open)

    Arcanine -> Life Orb Starmie
    Kyurem -> Choice Scarf Set
    Dragonite -> Change EQ to Dragon Dance
    Espeon -> EV / Nature change, to 252 Spe, 252 HP, 4 Def. Timid Nature.

    Hopefully I was of aid to you, and welcome to Smogon! :)
