    Lapas is easily the best of this team. It`s coverage with his moves is insane. Ice Beam deals with Grass-types, even though I prefer Lampent for Grass. Thunderbolt can deal alot of damage against my Water or Flying foes, and Surf and Waterfall dealing heaps, and heaps of damage to Fire-types, covering 3 Types of Pokemons, on his own.

    Regice is dangerous by one thing: Regice doesn`t get damaged alot by any of Lapras` moves. Another problem is the fact of the ability to Thunderbolt Lapras easily.

    Also, Emboar can be an problem. Emboar`s Fighting-type makes it kind of dangerous. I wouldn`t see Emboar as too much as a problem, unless he has Flame Charged enough to outspeed Lapras.

    The main problem of Lapras his weaknesses is his weakness to Rock-type moves. Skill Link Cincinno easily OHKOs Lapras with Rock Blast, and the problem with Regirock being common as well, makes an huge problem for Lapras.

    The Grass-type is less of an problem. Even though Cincinno also easily OHKOs Lapras with Leech Seed. Yet, another problem is Amoonguss, easily using Spore and Giga Drain, making me rage on Amoonguss.

    This beast would sweep alot of Pokémons with ease. But this insane thing gets stopped from destroying whole teams by giving him an Truant ability. This really stops Slaking from doing his job.
    He is my strongest Pokémon from the team, but sadly, not the best.

    Normal-types always proved to be strong against any type, and even it`s immunity against Ghost-types makes it kind of strong.
    As I already told Slaking is almost unstoppable, he is sadly also stopped by the bulky Fighting-types. Sadly.

    Regirock was the worst of my team. Perhaps because I had an different moveset. I have no real description for now, because this is an freshly, new moveset!

    An heap of weaknesses. I wish Regirock didn`t have weaknesses to Fighting. Nor Grass. Nor Ground. Nor Water...
    His weaknesses make him bad in alot of situations. Almost EVERY Pokémon has one of those typed moves. Even tho, Regirock is my lead. Just because his ability to lay Rocks.

    Regice. Yes, Regice.
    On the first sight, I did doubt if Regice did work out good. Luckily, Regice did do awesome job in alot of battles.
    Go, Regice!

    Nothing special about the weakness of Steel-typed attacks. The only Steel move I have ever saw yet was Automatize on Vanilluxe. It didn`t even damage me.

    Emboar, again, is the lead of my problems in Fire, and slightly in Fighting. Emboar is only blushed out by Lapras.

    Sawk is strengthy against Regice, breaking the Ice (ba dum tss), and being super-effective.

    My favorite revenge killer of the current meta-game. Even though being outsped by most other scarfers; he is fast enough to kill alot of Pokémons. Lampent`s coverage, with his moves, is AMAAAZING

    To be perfectly honest, I question the viability of this team. 3 Ice types, a Fire-type revenge killer with base 55 Speed and a Mild Nature, and Slaking all on the same team? That seems pretty gimmicky already, and I haven't really gone in-depth yet. The massive Rock weakness seems crippling, and the overall slowness of your team means that a Scarf Rampardos can blow through most of your team on its own. Your EV spreads and even a few of your natures are pretty odd and inefficient. Regirock and Regice seem to be the most effective Pokemon on your team, and you don't even seem to think Regirock is good! I seriously recommend that you head over to Battling 101 and work on team synergy and overall strategy a bit. I'll give your team a few tests later to see if something can come of it, but I don't really think it will. Remember, the ladder isn't really the most reliable way to gauge a team's effectiveness.

    Edit: After a few tests, I can safely say that this team needs a makeover. The triple Ice types,Giga Impact (and no Sucker Punch) Slaking, uninvested Automomize Vanilluxe, and Mild Scarf Lampent just all fail to work against even below average players. I highly doubt it'll work against average to high level players.

    Edit 2: The point of RMT is to rate how good your team is while giving some changes that improve the efficiency. For actual tips, Battling 101 is the place to go. The rules, especially number 16, explain this.

    I completely agree with WhiteD. I'm not 100% sure if it was him that I battled but he used your team on Showdown today to test it out and see how it did. With haxs killing one of my pokes he ended up losing to my team 4-0. The thing about your team is they all have crucial simular weaknesses. You made it that one of two pokemon can just run all over your current set up. My Ludicolo set up had a field day against this team because it leech seeded with ease and anything that switched into it, Ludicolo could hit really effectively. You need to change up your team so its not as redundant. Vanillux is clearly the pokemon that has to go first on your team. You have a Regice and Lapras that already know Icebeam, why need another?
