This is my first LC team and despite having made this team a few months ago I am looking to get into LC a little bit more, as it seems like a fun tier. I decided to use Sand as it worked well for me in OU and I didn't see why it wouldn't work in LC, and the only real disadvantage it brought is that I have 2 ground types and have some trouble taking high-powered Water moves. Otherwise, my team is not outstanding but it performs well enough, so please share any improvements you can make, and enjoy the team :) Treecko @ Focus Sash Trait: Overgrow Level: 5 EVs: 36 HP / 240 SAtk / 200 Spd Hasty Nature - Leaf Storm - Hidden Power Fire - Giga Drain - Quick Attack Treecko is a favorite of mine, and works great as a suicide lead. he can almost always get a KO before going down thanks to his Focus Sash. Treecko usually moves first, and when he does he isn't hitting with overwhelming force, but he is hitting with decent power. once his Focus Sash has been used, he can rip off an insanely powerful Leaf Storm boosted by Overgrow, This is my first LC team, and although I made it months ago I am lloking to get into LC a which, more often than not, lands a KO. Leaf Storm as mentioned is to be used when Overgrow is in effect and a lot of power is needed, otherwise Giga Drain is used to regain HP while KO'ing. Hidden Power Fire takes down Steel and Grass types and Quick Attack allows Treecko to revenge kill and pick off weakened enemies. Hippopotas @ Eviolite Trait: Sand Stream Level: 5 EVs: 132 HP / 20 Atk / 212 Def / 144 SDef Impish Nature - Earthquake - Stealth Rock - Roar - Slack Off Hippopotas is my bulky sand setter, in addition to being able to phaze and set up SR. Earthquake is STAB and ensures he can't be completely shut down by Taunt, and Stealth Rock needs no explanation. Roar can be used to eliminate enemy boosts, and rack up SR damage on the opposing team, while Slack Off is recovery and gives Hippo longetivity. Drilbur @ Eviolite Trait: Sand Rush Level: 5 EVs: 236 Atk / 36 Def / 212 Spd Adamant Nature - Swords Dance - Rock Slide - Earthquake - Shadow Claw Drilbur is the first of 2 Swords Dance sweepers on this team, and Drilbur has great offenses with SD while maintaining relative bulk with Eviolite. Rock Slide is coerage mainly against Ice and Flying types, while Earthuake is main STAB and works very well for hitting most targets, especially after a SD. Shadow Claw is for hitting common Psychic and Ghost types such as Abra and Misdvreavus. Abra @ Life Orb Trait: Magic Gaurd Level: 5 EVs: 240 SAtk / 200 Spd Timid Nature - Psychic - Shadow Ball - Hidden Power [Fighting] - Calm Mind Abra is my special sweeper, and it doesn't take damage from sand or LO thanks to Magic Gaurd, meaning it can usually set up a Calm Mind and sweep. Psychic is main STAB, and Shadow Ball is used to deal with Misdreavus. HP Fighting is for Steel and Dark types, and Calm Mind is great for sweeping and avoiding Pawniard'sand other dark type's Suckerpunch. Pawniard @ Life Orb Trait: Defiant EVs: 236 Atk / 36 Def / 36 SDef / 196 Spe Adamant Nature - Suckerpunch - Swords Dance - Brick Break - Night Slash I love Pawniard, and he works very well with Swords Dance and SuckerPunch, because you never know what it's gonna do. Even withought a SD boost Pawniard is dangerous, and with as common as it is, it is very hard to predict whether it is going to Suckerpunch, Swords Dance, or attack with another move. Suckerpunch is main STAB and works extremely well for remedying his mediocre speed. Swords Dance turns Suckerpunch into a freight train in terms of power, and also makes the other moves in the set hit wuite hard. Night Slash is secondary STAB and Brick Break gets great coverage with Night Slash. Gastly @ Choice Scarf Trait: Levitate EVs: 68 HP / 40 Def / 200 SAtk / 200 Spd Modest Nature - Shadow Ball - Sludge Bomb - Hidden Power [Fighting] - Trick Gastly is my Scarfer, and it rocks late-game, and is also a great revenge killer. Shadow Ball is STAB and is used to hit things like Abra, Misdreavus, other Gastlys, etc. Sludge Bomb is main STAB and hits most things pretty hard. Hidden Power Fighting takes down Steel and Dark types, and Trick is for crippling enemy walls, which usually gets me an Eviolite, or in other cases can be used for sticking Pawniard into Suckerpunch, in which case I usually get a Life Orb.
