    Now i need somethin 2 abuse the sun.And venusaur is beast in sun.I maxed out speed 2 abuse the sun properly and i maxed sp atk 2 deal tons of damage.I run 2 stab moves in the form of giga drain and sludge bomob which are standard,synthesis 2 heal tons of damage and hp fire 4 coverage against ferrothorn,forretress and scizor.

    Now i need an extra sub attacker and infernape is my guy.I have maxed atk and speed on this guy cuz i banded him 2 makes sure flar blitz gets an ohko.Flare blitz and Close Combat are standard,stone edge 4 flying types and mach punch 2 finish up stuff that are low on health

    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature

    The nick is a ref 2 the movie Pokemon Heroes which is my fav pokemon movies besides destiny:deoxys.Now I run specs and of course its max spatk max speed and timid,I run dragon pulse which is standard,psyshock 4 blisseys otherwise i would get completely walled,ice beam may seem odd but i want 2 hit landorus and thundurs hard and t bolt 4 gyarados.

    Mence (Salamence) (M) @ Choice Scarf

    EVs: 4 SDef / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Crunch
    - Brick Break

    Mence is one of the fatest pokes in the late game.I scarfed it 2 abuse moxie and sweep entire teams with it.Outrage is standard,eq 4 stuff like magnezone,terrakion,etc,crunch may seem odd but its quite effective against alakazam,reuniclus,etc and brick break 2 remove screens and ko ttars in one hit.

    [​IMG]

    Phanphy (Donphan) (M) @ Leftovers

    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - Stealth Rock
    - Ice Shard
    - Earthquake
    - Rapid Spin

    Now i need entry hazards and i need somethin sturdy.Why not donphan.Its max hp max atk which might seem odd 4 a buly poke and the fact i have both stelth rocks and rapid spin in the set.I run eq 4 stab and 2 avoid taunt and ice shard 2 finish up weakened pokes.Donphan works well as a wall and as an attacker

    So thatts the team i built.Hope u liked it!!And if u have any suggestions just leave them on the comments below

    Have a nice day.Until next time.Peace!!!

    This is a nice team. I have a few things, though.

    -Change Dark Pulse to Hidden Power [Ice] on Ninetales, and consider Will-O-Wisp in place of Confuse Ray. Dark Pulse handles Ghost types, but HP Ice let's Ninetales go against Dragon types such as Salamence and Dragonite, something Ninetales has more struggle with. It also gives Ninetales more coverage. WoW helps Ninetales make up for its lacking defenses, as it lowers the foes Atk. Though, if that doesn't bother you, Confuse Ray works fine.

    -Growth > Sludge Bomb on Venusaur. Sludge Bomb is STAB, though it has very poor coverage; HP Fire can cover the Grass types Venusaur can't touch with Giga Drain. Also, it lets Venusaur set up with +2 in Sun. Also, if you are having trouble with Heatran (which you will most likely have) You can consider Earthquake > Synthesis. You have Giga Drain and Black Sludge, your HP gain won't be that much of an issue, as no other moves can handle Heatran (par it doesn't hold Air Balloon, whereas you just switch out.)


    -There is also an obvious weakness to Ice types in your team, I suggest Jirachi > Salamence for that reason, so you have an easier time checking those pesky dragons. Here is the set I recommend:

    [​IMG]
    Jirachi @ Leftovers
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 224 SDef / 252 HP / 32 Spd
    Careful Nature
    - Body Slam
    - Iron Head
    - Wish
    - U-turn

    This set is also good for healing your teammates, as well as deal with any Ice type encounters. Jirachi can also go against Dragon types, which your team has trouble facing as well, and potentially paralyze it with Body Slam. The EV's could go to speed if you wish to have that Iron Head flinch effect.

    -Also, this leaves your team without a Scarfer, which is vital for any OU team. I suggest Choice Scarf Infernape. It has the power, and that extra speed can outspeed Celebi, Starmie, and tie speed with Choice Scarf Keldeo, all of which bothers your team.
    .

    Good luck with the team! :)

    Donphan in sun is really good. I wouldn't run max attack evs though because he is still netting 2HKOs on most dragons regardless.

    donphan@ leftovers
    sturdy
    252 HP 76 attack 182 def
    stealth rock
    ice shard
    earthquake
    rapid spin

    This will help with keeping him alive and those 1v1s against gliscor(with no toxic) as well.

    I would also try a scarf set for ape because you don't have a revenge killer. Also try out this victreebell set over saur.

    @leftovers/life orb
    chlorophyll
    sleep powder/substitute/growth
    giga drain/leaf blade/solar beam
    weather ball
    hidden power ice/sucker punch

    A lot of options here. Without three attacks its walled by a lot of things but you could go with sleep powder and growth late game to guarantee a boost.
