    Umbreon @ Leftovers
    EVs : 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
    Nature : Calm
    Ability : Synchronize
    • Wish
    • Foul Play
    • Heal Bell
    • Protect

    Umbreon is my support pokemon and my special wall. I chose Umbreon mainly because he is my favorite pokemon. I wasn't sure if I should run a more offensive set with him or if this is the best thing he can do. This is the only pokemon I really want on my team so if you are going to fix my team please fix it around Umbreon.

    Heracross @ Choice Scarf
    EVs : 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    Nature : Jolly
    Ability : Moxie
    • Close Combat
    • Megahorn
    • Stone Edge
    • Earthquake

    I chose Heracross for my physical sweeper. He seemed to have good synergy with Umbreon and a really prominent physical sweeper in UU. I chose choice scarf over choice band because my current team didn't seem to be very fast.

    Slowbro @ Leftovers
    EVs : 248 HP / 244 Def / 16 SpA
    Nature : Bold
    Ability : Regenerator
    • Scald
    • Psyshock
    • Slack Off
    • Thunder Wave

    I chose Slowbro for my physical wall. Slowbro is another one of my favorite pokemon and seemed to fit the team. I chose scald and psyshock for STAB, slack off for survivability, and thunder wave because of the low speed. I wasn't sure if I should use psyshock or psychic.

    Rhyperior @ Leftovers
    EVs : 248 HP / 16 Atk / 244 SpD
    Nature : Adamant
    Ability : Solid Rock
    • Stealth Rock
    • Earthquake
    • Rock Blast / Stone Edge
    • Roar

    I chose Rhyperior for my tank and stealth rocks. I wasn't sure if I should use stone edge or rock blast . I made him more specially defensive mainly because Umbreon doesn't have any good attack options. I chose roar because of scouting and reliability over dragon tail. I also wasn't sure if I should give him a defensive nature or keep it adamant.

    Roserade @ Life Orb
    EVs : 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Nature : Timid
    Ability : Natural Cure
    • Leaf Storm
    • Sludge Bomb
    • Sleep Powder
    • Synthesis

    I chose Roserade as my special sweeper. Slowbro, Rhyperior, and Roserade have great synergy with each other which is why I didn't give her a spikes set. I wasn't sure if I should give her another attack move over synthesis or not for coverage and a better sweeping ability.

    Froslass @ Focus Sash
    EVs : 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    Nature : Timid
    Ability : Cursed Body
    • Spikes
    • Taunt
    • Destiny Bond
    • Shadow Ball

    I chose Froslass for my main lead and spiker. Focus sash and destiny bond gives Froslass a easy kill on some pokemon with the right prediction. I wasn't sure if I should use ice beam or shadow ball for the last slot. Let me know if there is a better lead.

    Please feel free to edit my team. I like a team to have all types of coverage so it can handle multiple situations against different types of teams.

    Hey man nice team, good job especially for your first one. Just a heads up though you need atleast 3 lines of description for each team member, a mod could come along and lock your thread right now as it is.

    Definitely go with Rock Blase over Stone Edge on Rhyperior, it can be really useful for breaking sashes and Subs on things. Rest could replace Synthesis on Roserade, thanks to Natural Cure all Roserade would have to do its Rest to fully heal itself and then switch.
