    My first one of these, so my descriptions of each pokemon and their roles may be a bit mediocre.

    Hippowdon @ Leftovers
    Trait: Sand Stream
    EVs: 252 HP / 244 Def / 12 SDef
    Impish Nature
    IVs: 30 Atk / 30 Def
    - Earthquake
    - Slack Off
    - Stealth Rock
    - Ice Fang

    Primarily holds the function of a physical wall; however, due to it's relatively high attack base stat, it can deal a decent amount of damage, as well. Contemplated making it a mixed well, but decided against it, which shall be explained below.

    Garchomp @ Choice Band
    Trait: Rough Skin
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature
    - Outrage
    - Earthquake
    - Fire Fang
    - Dragon Claw

    The primary sweeper of the team. Not much to say that can't be told by it stats; it already massive attack stat combined with Choice Band with the STAB of Outrage, makes for an excellent combination.

    Espeon @ Light Clay
    Trait: Magic Bounce
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature
    - Reflect
    - Light Screen
    - Psychic
    - Hidden Power [Fire]

    The primary support poke in the team. Generally, it's used as the lead to use reflect and light screen at the start of the battle to give other pokes an increase in defense.

    Cloyster @ Life Orb
    Trait: Skill Link
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SAtk
    Naive Nature
    - Shell Smash
    - Icicle Spear
    - Rock Blast
    - Hydro Pump

    Not sure exactly what function this would usually go into, however, it's Skill Link with Shell Smash and Icicle Spear, though not very strong, can easily wear down most pokes.

    Salamence @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Naive Nature
    - Outrage
    - Dragon Claw
    - Earthquake
    - Fire Blast

    The secondary sweeper of the team. Can do nearly the same amount of damage as Garchomp with Outrage, so one getting taking out with the other still in play, isn't as crippling as it normally would be.

    Jellicent @ Leftovers
    Trait: Water Absorb
    EVs: 252 HP / 36 Def / 220 SDef
    Calm Nature
    - Scald
    - Recover
    - Toxic
    - Shadow Ball​

    The secondary supporter and status inflictor. Again, not much to say. It's STAB with scald is rather good, as it deals a decent attack *with* the chance to burn the target. Likely to be used after the Reflect/Light Screen combination. Also, due to Hippowdown serving as the physical wall of the team, this holds the function of special wall.

    Your thread is breaking that rule. You need at the very least three lines of descriptions for each Pokemon. PM me your updated descriptions and I'll unlock this thread.
