    I played for awhile with a ragtag team, so i tried making a new one. Still Ragtag....but a lot more fun to play with. Lets take a look



    Stealth Rock Lead

    Azelf @ Focus Sash
    Ability: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP/252 Spd/4 SDef
    Naive nature (+Spd, -SDef)
    - Explosion
    - Stealth Rock
    - Taunt
    - Psychic
    ---
    I had tested Aerodactyl out a bit before switching to this lead instead. I still out speed leads so i can ruin their set ups and entry hazards with taunt, and the explosion has helped me out when in a tight spot. Azelf has proven to be a pretty solid lead so far

    SD Physical Sweeper
    Scizor (M) @ Life Orb
    Ability: Technician
    EVs: 32 HP/252 Atk/224 Spd
    Adamant nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Bullet Punch
    - Bug Bite
    - Swords Dance
    - Superpower
    ---
    This is #1 of my 2 Physical Sweepers. This is your classic run of the mill Scizor, nothing special. Full of face wrecking potential. Ive already seen that Bullet Punch's power is ridiculous

    Special Sweeper / Coverage
    Starmie @ Life Orb
    Ability: Natural Cure
    EVs: 4 HP/252 Spd/252 SAtk
    Timid nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Ice Beam
    - Hydro Pump
    - Thunderbolt
    - Recover
    ---
    This Starmie is for cleaning up a bit of the mess that my others cannot handle. im really considering switching out Hydro Pump for surf, because of the accuracy issues. Good idea?

    FALCON PAWNCH
    Machamp (M) @ Life Orb
    Ability: No Guard
    EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd
    Adamant nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Bullet Punch
    - Dynamicpunch
    - Encore
    - Stone Edge
    ---
    Machamp, one of my favorite pokemon to use, i get him out, and proceed to pawnching whatever is in my way. With a 100 power plus STAB and garuuneteed confusion, how can you go wrong? I put encore on here just for versatility, nothing like a Encore out of the blue trapping the enemy in a set up while i wreck them with Dynamic Punch

    Cheap Kill
    Togekiss (M) @ Leftovers
    Ability: Serene Grace
    EVs: 252 HP/188 Def/68 SDef
    Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Air Slash
    - Thunder Wave
    - Roost
    - Substitute
    ---
    The ParaFlinch Togekiss....it has been so much fun to use against people, the "GAH", "WTF", and "GSKJGSKJG FUUUU" is so great to see from who im facing while they flinch to death. Its spot on this team is self explanatory.

    Toxic Lock Stall
    Umbreon (M) @ Leftovers
    Ability: Synchronize
    EVs: 252 HP/58 Def/200 SDef
    Calm nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Mean Look
    - Toxic
    - Wish
    - Protect
    ---
    One of my favorite builds on any pokemon. This Umbreon is ridiculous. Mean Look traps them in, Toxic whittle them down while i Wish and Protect to survive! It is sooo much fun to use.

    Alright, so one of the main threats to this team is Bug types. I have 3 pokemon weak to bug, so that means Scizor can have its way with my team. I still have myself at SubPunch Breloom's mercy, I need to find a way around that thing, quick.

    From what ive played with this team, im digging it more than my old one, even though i will miss my rapetastic Specsmence.

    So go ahead an rip into my team, tell me my flaws, strengths, what i need to change, all that good stuff.

    Try switching Umbreon to a CSpecs Yanmega. It makes quick work of 'loom, unless it carries SEdge.


    On to the main rate:

    Azelf wants Fire Blast.

    Scizor wants the CBand set if it carries Superpower.

    Machamp wants Lefties.

    Umbreon wants to take a break, and have Yanmega replace him.
