    Hey guys this is my sandstormteam for shoddy

    Hippowdon @ Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Sandstream
    EVs: HP 252, Atk 6, Def 252
    Nature: Impish
    - Earthquake
    - Stealth Rock
    - Slack Off
    - Toxic

    Get the sandstorm going and sets up stealth rock, can poison them also

    Garchomp @ Brightpowder
    Ability: Sand Veil
    EVs: HP 6,Atk 252, Spd 252
    Nature: Adamant
    - Earthquake
    - Outrage
    - Sword Dance
    - Fire Fang

    I know that its pretty cheap but it gos well with sandstorm oviously, try 2 get a sword dance in and knock out as many as he can get

    Claydoll @ Leftovers
    Ability: Levitate
    EVs: HP 236, Def 98, SpA 178
    Nature: Bold
    - Earth Power
    - Ice Beam

    - Rapid Spin
    - Toxic/Protect

    My Rapid Spinner, resistint to spikes and toxic spikes and stealth rock doesnt do much, and can poison them or protect if there already poisoned from toxic spikes or my toxic inforcers(Hippowdon and Cradily)

    Nidoqueen @ Choice Specs
    Ability: Poison Point
    EVs: HP 252, Def 216, Spd 42
    Nature: Relaxed
    - Earthquake/Earth Power
    - Thunderbolt
    - Flamethrower
    - Toxic Spikes

    Sets up Toxic Spikes, i might consiter making her a Nidoking with the same move set but make him a Special Sweeper

    Cradily @ Leftovers
    Ability: Suction Cups
    EVs: HP 252, 100 Def, SpD 158
    Nature: Careful
    -Stone Edge/Rock Slide

    My special wall, is amazing with sandstorm, poison them then stall with recover and protect, if a steel/poison comes out then garchomp or t-tar is the way 2 go

    Skarmory @ Shed Shell
    Ability: Sturdy
    EVs: HP 178, Atk 80, Def 252
    Nature: Impish
    -Drill Peck
    - Spikes
    - Roost

    Sets up spikes and whirlwinds them away, walls most phisacal sweepers, drill peck over BB since no Leftovers

    The Fighting weak sorta jumps off the page here - you have three fighting weaks, without any resists or immunes. Gliscor is a healthy option to stop this, but if you were to replace Skarmory then a Garchomp weak might open up. Replacing Tyranitar with Hippowdon and Skarmory with Gliscor seems like a good compromise...3 stat-up sweepers is a bit much anyway.

    I'd also reccomend Vaccum Wave over Psychic on Luke, just to grant your team a much needed priority attack. Hidden Power Ice is generally a better option that Dragon Pulse too, as it hits all the Dragons harder and secures an OHKO on Gliscor, who is constantly switching into Lucario.

    Use Stone Edge>Protect on Cradily, as he will most likely be your switch in to Gengar and needs to be able to hit him.

    Very good suggestions but this is tworads stone edge, on cradily as a wall you'll find that the PP of stone edge runs out fast! try rock slide if thats a problem.

    Well as far as I can see, infernape will last not too long with sandstorm and life orb.

    -Listen to Lee, he's smart.
    -Listen to the penguin guy about rock slide though. But grass knot is better IMO. And stockpile is better than stealth rock to me, it can't be roared.

    I see a CB Mamoswine weak (Earthqauke for T-Tar Ape, and Lucario Stone Edge for Cradily, Ice Shard for Garchomp, and Skarmory is safe) I reccomend Weezing to replace Skarmory so you have a immunity to a STAB attack and you can Pain Split damage away.
