    Hello! this is my first RMT:/ this team is very offensive and I'd just like some suggestions to make this team better. Lets get right to it.
    [​IMG]

    Meloetta @ Choice Scarf Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Echoed Voice
    - Focus Blast
    - Psychic
    - U-turn
    This or swampert are my usual leads meloetta outspeeds most things with a scarf. i use echoed voice because occasional if the other team doesn't have a ghost u can sweep pretty easily. psychic and echoed voice are stab. focus blast to hit steel types and scafty. and u turn is to scout.

    Chandelure (M) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Trick
    - flamethrower
    - Overheat
    - Shadow Ball


    Specs Chandelure is a BEAST! not very many things want to take a overheat from this monster. trick is for stopping set up sweepers and walls. overheat is to get massive damage on everything. shadow ball for things that resist fire. and flamethrower incase i dont want a pesky special attack drop.

    Clefable (F) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Calm Mind
    - soft boiled
    - Ice Beam
    - Thunderbolt

    now this pretty lady is surprisingly powerful. not to common in uu because nidoking does the same thing pretty much, but it can set up and has reliable recovery with magic gaurd is takes no damage from anything but attacks. calm mind and softboiled are to set up and ice beam and thunderbolt give me very good coverage.


    [​IMG]Swampert (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Torrent
    EVs: 224 HP / 32 Atk / 252 Def
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Stealth Rock
    - Waterfall
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Punch
    This is my only wall that can take physical hits. he sets up stealth rocks and his 3 attacks usually are able to hit something super effectively. waterfall and eq are stab and help me deal with alot of threats. ice punch is to hit birds that always want to come in on swampert.

    Raikou @ Leftovers
    Trait: Pressure
    EVs: 96 HP / 160 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    - Substitute
    - Calm Mind
    - Discharge
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    My set up sweeper. With a couple calm minds and his outrages speed stat he can easily sweep teams. i use discharge because a para here or there is very useful. hp ice is so im not walled by ground types. sub and calm mind are just obvious. (is the weakest link to my team may try zapados?)



    [​IMG]
    Mienshao (F) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Reckless
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    - Fake Out
    - Hi Jump Kick
    - Stone Edge
    - U-turn
    Mienshao also has a good potential to clean out threats. fake out to kill low hp pokemon and high jump kick with reckless.. nothing wants to take a hit from it. stone edge to hit flying/ghost types and u turn is to scout.

    You need to improve your descriptions. You current ones are lacking. Try to explain what the Pokemon do on the team, its moveset, why did you choose it, etc. Read the Rules and check out the RMT Archive to see what we're looking for. Around three lines should do. If you don't improve your descriptions, I'll have to lock this thread.

    As far as weaknesses go, you've made your team exceptionally well. you have only one weakness to 8 of the 17 types, two weaknesses to 2 of the 17 types and 0 weaknesses to 7 of the 17 types and then a plethora of resistances to boot. HOWEVER, lets get on to the lower sides of your team. You have no specific Scrafty counter (Meloetta only hits it for 50-60% damage with focus blast) and he can also hit all of your team for at least neutral damage. You could try to fit a Crobat (who outspeeds Scrafty at +1) on your team who can take a Ice punch or Zen headbutt and retaliate with Brave Bird (choice band set OHKO's). Crobat also suits your hyperoffensive playstyle quite well and provides you with a nice resistance to fighting and grass.

    Clefable (F) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Magic Guard
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Calm Mind
    - Softboiled OR Psychic
    - Ice Beam
    - Thunderbolt
    I personally love Clefable and use a physical one in my RU team, but that's not important. What matters is flamethrower, whilst it's nice to have the tri-fector of 95 power attacks. You don't need it after the almost unresisted boltbeam combo. I recommend the healing from Softboiled to make you an unkillable monster OR Psychic to get the jump on some slower fighting types (such as Machamp or Hitmontop).

    So all in all, the team looks good, I personally think to switch Raikou for Crobat (who also helps you burst through stall teams) and Flamethrower for Softboiled. That's all I can really see at the moment, If I think of something else i'll keep you poster. Good luck!
