    Okay, here's the ones that I quite like:

    Snorlax w/ leftovers
    -Curse - Protect
    -Earthquake - Toxic

    Umbreon w/???? (stallar to support snorlax)
    -Faint Attack/Bite -confuse ray
    -Moonlight -Attract/ mean look

    Vapreon w/mint berry (another staller)
    -Rest -Ice beam
    -Surf -Detect

    Tyranitar w/soft sand? (powerhouse)
    -Equake -Rock Slide
    -Cruch -sandstorm

    Gengar w/???? (special sweeper)
    -Confuse Ray? -Thunderbolt
    -Psychic -Shadowball

    Houndoom w/Charcoal? (sunnybeam!)
    -Sunny day -Flamethrower
    -Solarbeam -Crunch

    -I dislike how easy 'doom dies, he's really can't take a hit. Note the HUGE weakness against fighting, maybe a flying should be tossed in? Help me out.

    You should go to http://www.smogon.com/gs/tiers to find some good movesets for your Pokemon. Just click on the Pokemon you want and click "View Strategy."

    Snorlax w/ leftovers
    -Curse -Rest
    -Earthquake - Normal Stab (Body Slam or Double-Edge.)

    Umbreon w/???? (stallar to support snorlax) Give it leftovers.
    -Charm -confuse ray
    -Rest/ mean look

    Vapreon w/mint berry (another staller) Same as Snorlax
    -Rest -Ice beam
    -Surf -Growth/Sleep Talk

    Tyranitar w/soft sand? (powerhouse) Same as Snorlax.
    -Equake -Rock Slide
    -Cruch -Fire Blast

    Gengar w/???? (special sweeper) Same as Snorlax.
    -Confuse Ray? -Thunderbolt
    -Your better off with Ice Punch -Some kind of Kamikaze move.

    Houndoom
    w/Charcoal? (sunnybeam!)
    -Sunny day -Flamethrower
    -Solarbeam -Crunch

    This set works but Flamethrower is blah consider using Fire Blast for more power.

    PS is this for ingame?

    Thanks for help. I wanna hammer out a few more details, see how they fly. Keep in mind I am doing this on the ACTUAL game, no emulators for me this time 'round. My opponent and I have made the following rules for the match:
    -NO legendaries of any kind (ie dogs, birds, cats, whatever).
    -DT allowed (so I need a 100% hit move)

    I KNOW that he'll be using things like Hyper beam, Double Team, Hypnosis and is a real nooblet- so I wanna be able to sweep when I need and stall (just for shits) when I have to.



    Snorlax w/ leftovers
    -Curse -Rest
    -Earthquake - Normal Stab (Body Slam or Double-Edge.)

    -will he still be a good staller here without protect?


    Umbreon w/???? (stallar to support snorlax)
    -Faint attack -confuse ray
    -toxic -Moonlight (does this work decent enough to stall also, only one rest tm in GSC isn't there?)

    I want him to have some kind of attack to defend himself as well as support incase a friggin gengar or DT is pulled. I would allow swapping so I can poison all my opponents pokemons, is this good? the moveset you gave me has a staller with no means of draining life, so I'd need a toxic somewhere.

    Vapreon w/mint berry (another staller)
    -Rest -Ice beam
    -Surf -protect

    -I only plan on reviving him once with the mint berry. Anything else is just gravy, so protect I really do like on this chap.



    Tyranitar w/soft sand? (powerhouse)
    -Equake -Rock Slide
    -Cruch -Fire Blast

    -nice call with fireblast. I guess sstorm is kinda dumb on a sweeper, lol.


    Gengar w/???? (special sweeper) Same as Snorlax.
    -Ice punch -Thunderbolt
    -shadow ball -explosion.

    -I wanna tear is ghost/psychic pokemon apart with shadow ball. Isn't explosion under the "attack" instead of "special attack"? That would make it weak willed, plus gengar is usually a OHKO when he takes a super effective in the face...still, useful.


    Houndoom w/Charcoal? (sunnybeam!)
    -Sunny day -Flamethrower
    -Solarbeam -Crunch

    I gotta learn to use 'doom right, lol...fireblasr misses alot, doesn't it?

    Well, HP legendaries are usually frowned upon in G/S/C.

    why? a machamp or tyranitar(he can take a hit) will still take him out in one hit(rock slide) so its really not much different, than say a solarbeam houndoom.

    erm. i think you're used to in-game stuff. a machamp rock slide is at best a 3hko on zapdos, and ttar's rock slide is probably a 2/3hko. probably a 2hko, even with leftovers. zapdos (and all legendaries) are much sturdier than houndoom and therefore are much more dangerous (and borderline unfair) in gsc with hidden power water/ice/grass.

    nah i play competitively all the time. and i was talking about moltres, not zapdos. moltres dies easily to rock slide. zapdos might be a different story though so you do have a point. well, you could just use wing attack instead of HP:Grass on moltres. or this

    Entei(Leftovers)
    -Sunny Day
    -Flamethrower
    -Solarbeam
    -Return

    can do the same as houndoom, but with more survivability. return goes off his 328 attack stat.

    sorry for the confusion.
