    Yes this team is lunacy. I don't expect it to win more than half of my battles or against truly dangerous opponents, but I have taken down many unsuspecting ├╝ber teams with it. Mostly noobs who stacked Kyruem, Dialgia, Rayquaza and Dragon-Arceus, but still. It's not entirely helpless.

    The team composition will not change, I just need help with move choices for coverage. I know this team won't win anything big, but it is fun and still holds its own.

    Pikachu @ Light Ball - 252SpAtk/ 252Spe/ 6HP
    Thunderbolt
    Grass Knot
    Substitute
    Hidden Power Ice

    Leading with Pikachu because there will never be a time where it is a good or safe idea to switch it in. However, it makes for a strong special lead with Light Ball bringing its attack beyond 400. It dies in one hit to nearly everything though so I used Substitute. I'm not sure on the movelist though. I would like to fit in Brick Break over Substitute but that may not be possible.

    Venusaur @ Black Sludge - 252SpAtk/252HP/6SpDef
    Leech Seed
    Earthquake
    Sleep Powder
    Energy Ball

    Venusaur has proven to work quite well with this set. He can sleep anything they try to switch in and then prolong his life by sapping their HP. Earthquake is here as a coverage move, although I would prefer it on Snorlax, it seemed to only fit for Venusaur.

    [​IMG]
    Charizard @ Leftovers - 252SpAtk/ 252Spe/ 6HP
    Flamethrower
    Dragon Pulse
    Air Slash
    Roost

    Charizard is a dangerous Pokemon to use due to Stealth Rock halving his health on a switch, but this is mediated by a spinning Blastoise. Besides that, he makes for a strong special attacker, but his many weaknesses make him easy prey.

    Blastoise @ Leftovers - 252Def/252SpDef/ 6HP
    Scald
    Protect
    Toxic
    Rapid Spin

    He acts as a bulky staller and is effective at his job. Scald is used over Surf for the burn chance and he acts as the team spinner as Charizard is heavily susceptible to such entry hazards.

    [​IMG]
    Snorlax @ Leftovers - 252HP/ 252SpDef/ 6Def
    Curse
    Body Slam
    Crunch
    Rest

    Standard Curselax build. Usually I try to use him early in the battle and get 2 or 3 Curses in and the Rest while he shakes off damage easily. With +3 Curse he can sweep most underprepared teams.

    [​IMG]
    Mewtwo @ Leftovers - 252SpAtk/252Spe/ 6HP
    Psystrike
    Calm Mind
    Ice Beam
    Recover

    Finally, the last resort. When all of the other Pokemon have proven incapable of handling the threat, Mewtwo is brought in for cleanup. With +2 Calm Mind Mewtwo will tear through most teams with ease. Recover keeps him in the fight and Ice Beam is for solid coverage.

    hi, if you don't take teambuilding seriously then do not expect anyone to rate it seriously.
