    This is my Little Cup RMT. I hope you can give suggestions!

    Abra @ Choice Specs/Scarf
    Trait: Synchronize
    EVs: 236 SpA / 196 Spe / 76 HP
    Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk)
    - Psychic
    - Hidden Power Fighting
    - Energy Ball
    - Shadow Ball

    Abra is the premier special attacker of Little Cup. Something worthy of note is that a Modest Choice Specs Hidden Power Fighting from Abra is an OHKO on a max HP, max SpD, Special Defense neutral nature Munchlax.

    Cranidos @ Choice Scarf
    EVs: 196 Atk / 236 Spe / 76 SpD
    Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)
    - Head Smash
    - Earthquake
    - Pursuit/Crunch
    - Zen Headbutt/Hammer Arm

    Cranidos is the premier physical attacker of Little Cup. With max Speed and a Choice Scarf, it outspeeds Elekid, Voltorb, and the like, providing they do not have Choice Scarves.

    Diglett @ Life Orb/Choice Scarf/Choice Band
    Trait: Arena Trap
    EVs: 196 Atk / 236 Spe / 76 DefJolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA) or Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)
    - Earthquake
    - Sucker Punch
    - Rock Slide
    - Aerial Ace

    Diglett was the main revenge killer of Advance Little Cup, and now it's back to deal more damage. Loss of physical Sludge Bomb has hurt it somewhat, but it makes up for it with Sucker Punch, which counters Gastly. Diglett doesn't get Stone Edge for some reason, so Rock Slide has to suffice.

    Elekid @ Life Orb/Expert Belt/Choice Scarf
    EVs: 196 Atk / 76 SAtk / 236 Spe
    Lonely Nature (+Atk, -Def) or Mild Nature (+SpA, -Def)
    - Thunderpunch/Thunderbolt
    - Ice Punch
    - Cross Chop/Brick Break/Focus Punch
    - Psychic/Thunder Wave/Quick Attack

    Elekid is a mixed sweeper, unlike it's mostly physical evolution Electivire. Thunderpunch and Thunderbolt is up to you, but it will be your main attack. Thunder Wave can be used to mess up the opposing team, to let some of your slower Pokemon to deal damage.

    Porygon @ Choice Specs/Choice Scarf/Life Orb/Expert Belt
    Trait: Trace/DownloadEVs: 76 Def / 196 SpA / 236 Spe
    Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk) or Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
    - Ice Beam
    - Thunderbolt
    - Shadow Ball
    - Signal Beam

    Porygon is an interesting Pokemon that can revenge kill Diglett. Once it switches in, it can absorb an Earthquake and OHKO with Ice Beam. A Choice Scarf may also be used. If you are using Porygon to attack, the other three items may be used. Porygon has a good movepool with plenty of special attacks, so it can hit many things super effectively. Download can be used to boost SpA.

    Chinchou @ Oran Berry
    Trait: Volt Absorb
    EVs: 156 HP / 56 Def / 148 SpA / 148 SpD
    Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk)
    - Surf
    - Thunderbolt
    - Confuse Ray
    - Thunder Wave

    Chinchou is one of two Pokemon that resist both Ice Beam and Thunderbolt in Little Cup, the other being Magnemite. Parafusion can mess up the opponent's team. Dual STAB is always nice, allowing you to hit harder.

    Question, most of your pokes have defense evs or something even if they are pure sweepers, is there any reason for this?

    Also, diglett will be outspeeding pretty much anything anyway, so i think you should go Jolly Band

    I'm pretty sure this doesn't help us at all.

    I mean:
    "Porygon @ Choice Specs/Choice Scarf/Life Orb/Expert Belt"

    and "Trait: Trace/Download"

    AND "Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk) or Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)"

    This could honestly be 16 different pokemon. How can we judge your team if that's what we know?

    I suggest you really clean this up or it's gonna get locked.
