    Hey there everyone, I was wondering if you could analyse my team for VGC this year? This is my first competition and I'm nervous as heck. I've been practicing this team over and over using online simulators, and it seems to work really well, but I have a feeling something's missing...Help please?

    My team is as follows (Click show for specifics)
    Porygon2:
    Show Hide
    Item: Eviolite
    Nature: Bold
    Ability: Trace
    EV's: 252 HP, 176 Def, 80 SpD
    Moveset:
    Ice Beam (Should I change for Blizzard?)
    Thunderbolt (I don't have anyone who would be immune to discharge :/
    Thunder Wave (I prefer it over Toxic, much more reliable as it cuts speed)
    Recover

    Espeon
    Show Hide
    Item: Light Clay
    Nature: Rash
    Ability: Magic Bounce
    EV's: 252 HP, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Moveset:
    Light Screen
    Reflect
    Hidden Power Ghost (I know, I know, but this was the only hidden ability Eevee I have :/)
    Psychic

    Gengar
    Show Hide
    Item: Leftovers
    Nature: Timid
    Ability: Levitate
    EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4HP
    Moveset:
    Shadow ball
    Thunderbolt
    Focus Blast
    Protect
    I'm considering running a focus sash destiny bond Gengar instead, but is that really successful?

    Metagross
    Show Hide
    Item: Choice Band
    Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Clear Body
    EV's: 162HP, 252ATT, 94 SpE
    Moveset:
    Bullet Punch
    Meteor Mash
    Earthquake
    Zen Headbutt
    Should I replace Earthquake or Bullet Punch for Pursuit? I'm not too sure if i want to let go of Bullet Punch, as I prefer priority moves.

    Staraptor
    Show Hide
    Nature: Adamant
    Item: Choice Scarf
    Ability: Intimidate
    EV's: 252 ATT, 252 SpE, 4SpD
    Moveset:
    Brave Bird
    U-Turn
    Close Combat
    Return
    Not too sure about the 4 SpD, should I Put it on defense instead?

    Thundurus
    Show Hide
    Nature: Timid
    Item: Life Orb
    Ability: Prankster
    EV's: 252 Spe, 252 SpA, 4 Def
    Moveset:
    Thunder
    Thunder Wave
    Hidden Power Ice
    Taunt
    Considering removing Thunder Wave as I have Porygon2 but keeping taunt, if I did remove it what move would be better?


    So yeah, If anyone can give ANY feedback that would be brilliant. If you have another hidden ability Eevee spare I would also love to trade for that. Thanks for your time. :D

    Welcome to Smogon!

    If you want help with your team, I suggest posting it in the Other Teams section of the RMT (Rate My Team) forum. However, be sure to read the RMT rules before posting, and make sure your post follows them. In particular, you need to describe your team - why you chose the Pokémon and their sets, how you use them together in battle, what sort of things you tend to have trouble dealing with, etc. A couple of sentences for each Pokémon is a good description length to aim for, and you can look at the other threads in the forum to get a better idea of what's expected.

    As for the Eevee, you can simply check out this thread to see if anyone has one that you might want. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask them in the Simple Questions/Simple Answers thread, or check out the Wi-Fi forum, which is where most of the trading on Smogon happens.
