    Hi! I've been creating a new team for the last days and I think I've finally finished it. I've already tried it in some battles and it works kinda well. Well, here it is. What is your opinion?

    Firt of all, here is a preview of the team:


    ROTOM-H (?) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Spe / 4 SAtk
    Modest nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    -Volt Switch

    This one is a pretty good and fast lead. It can use the Choice Scarf/Trick combo to stop Mons from setting up. In case it is not possible, it has Volt Switch to change causing some decent damage and Overheat which scares Skarmory and Ferrothorm. It is also really useful against Physical Walls such as Gliscor. WOW is obviously a must.


    THUNDURUS (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Prankster
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe
    Modest nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    -Volt Switch
    -Focus Blast
    -Hidden Power [Ice]

    Revenge Killer, that is what Thundurus is. It completes the Volt Switch combo and can overspeed most of the common scarfers. Thunderbolt for more power in case I needed it and Hidden Power Ice to destroy Gliscor and Dragons. Focus Blast is the last move for coverage and a good one if Ferro comes in.


    SWAMPERT (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Torrent
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
    Impish nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    -Stealth Rock
    -Aqua Tail

    Swampert is the defense wall that my team need. It resists every kind of movement except grass ones, which are rarely seen and predictable. Stealth Rock is a really important move in this set as Swampert can resist hits and roar them out. Needless to say that no one will easily set up. Aqua Tail and Earthquake for coverage.

    BRONZONG (?) @ Light Clay
    Trait: Heatproof
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef [0 IVs Spe]
    Sassy nature (+SDef, -Spe)
    -Gyro Ball
    -Light Screen

    In my opinion, the perfect mate for Swampert. It resists hits like a beast, as it is not only Special bulky but physical as well. Reflect and Light Screen let me resist hits while they suffer from Toxic and Gyro Ball, which will be lethal in case it is paralized; so it is a good Counter to TWave Blisseys.


    STARMIE (?) @ Expert Belt
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe
    Timid nature (+Spe, -Atk)
    -Hydro Pump
    -Ice Beam

    The second revenge killer. It could work quite well as a lead, as nobody will expect an Ofensive one. Its coverage is almost perfect and Expert belt makes the rest. Most of the people will expect it to be scarfed, so it can do a great range of damage on the switch.


    DRAGONITE (F) @ Lum Berry
    Trait: Multiscale
    EVs: 4 HP /252 Atk / 252 Spe
    Adamant nature (+Atk,-SAtk)
    -Extreme Speed
    -Fire Punch
    -Dragon Dance

    The physical sweeper every team needs. It offers a great coverage of moves and it can take advange of Rotom's Trick combo. Reflect, Light Screen and Multiscale are vital so it can set up without a lot of problems and sweep with Outrage as its principal move. Lum berry to protect against TWaves and (Outrage) confusion. Extreme speed is my priority move, which hits hard with a 134 Atk Base stat.

    Rotom-H - Man i usually avoid using status moves on choiced pokes, but if it's been giving you success well more power to you man. Usually people have things choiced to hit hard.. I would switch the 252 HP EV's and put it in Sp. Atk

    Thundurus - isn't this kind of a re-run if you want to call it that, you already have Rotom scarfed, try using Choice Specs @ timid nature you'll probably better off like that.

    I noticed in the threat list that for Excadrill you listed a bizarre combination of pokemon which, with the sets you have provided, cannot counter Excadrill at all.

    My suggestion is the addition of Skarmory or Gliscor over Bronzong.

    There are too many changes that I would make to this team that I'll stop now :P

    Looks good! Type synergy is good. The only thing that I personally would change is turning Starmie into a rapid spinner, seeing that 3 of your pokes are weak to stealth rocks. Without rapid spin support, your rotom and thundurus will be racking up alot of SR damage with all of your volt switching and choiced attacks, and Dragonite wont be able to abuse his multiscale ability. I'd try this:

    Starmie @ Leftovers / Life Orb / Expert Belt

    EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 Hp

    Timid / Modest

    Surf / Hydro Pump
    Ice Beam / Recover
    Thunderbolt / Recover
    Rapid Spin

    Do whatever works best for you.
