    So after looking up RMT's here trying to understand how certain pokes work,which sets suit my playstyle more and testing some teams,i think i made my first half decent team.


    Blissey @ Leftovers


    252 DEF/252 HP/Bold

    -Softboiled
    -Wish
    -Stealth rock
    -Thunder wave

    After struggling alot with heatran due to him having very good bulk and being able to setup stealth rocks as well as be a wall and a phazer,i always felt that i had to add more,earthquake was extremely common and sometimes he'd be completely useless at low HP and no reliable means of recovery outside leftovers,i decided to use blissey.

    Blissey supports my whole team with wish,stealth rock and thunder wave,she can cripple fast pokes,restore HP and setup my favorite entry hazard.


    Genesect @ Choice Scarf


    252 SP.A/252 SPE/Mild

    -U Turn
    -Flamethrower
    -Ice beam
    -Thunderbolt

    Pretty standard scarf set, abusing download to great effect and being able to threaten many pokes while not easily koed.

    Thundurus-T @ Life Orb

    252 SP.A/252 SPE/Timid


    -Thunderbolt
    -Focus Blast
    -Nasty Plot
    -HP Ice

    My main sweeper,nasty plot is for those forced switches,they try to switch into something to take the hit and i end up at +2,works very well under rain due to its huge SP.A along with a nasty plot boost which is devastating,focus blast hits well vs heatran,hp ice rapes the dragons,gliscor,etc,once he gets a nasty plot or two in he becomes nearly unstoppable.

    Terrakion @ Choice Scarf

    252 ATK/252 SPE/Adamant



    Beast,plain and simple,excelent coverage,stab,speed,power,when this bro comes in,somethings getting hurt badly,i love how he can switch in,scare the shit out of something and makes it easy to predict,sometimes i'll go for a less damaging move in order to hit something neutraly,sometimes i'll go for the KO on the switch,or even change to a counter for the switch which will then proceed to setup while they're forced to switch again,it all comes down to reading.


    Gyarados @ Leftovers + Intimidate

    252 HP/80 DEF/168 SPE/Adamant


    -Waterfall
    -Earthquake
    -Ice Fang
    -Dragon Dance

    I love Gyarados,what makes him shine is that he can switch in the most common things that end up killing Terrakion and tank them,often via resists or immunities,the bulk and intimidate truly make him shine,as he then proceeds to setup on the sometimes forced switch,he works very well under rain,decent coverage,great answer to the dragons,188 speed EV's to outspeed jolteon after a dragon dance but unfortunately it can't kill latios.

    Ferrothorn @ Rocky Helmet


    252 HP/252 SP.D/Impish

    -Power Whip
    -Spikes
    -Leech Seed
    -Thunder wave

    Love this fucker,so good vs rain teams,leech seed constantly fucking shit up,thunder wave cripples speed reliant pokes sometimes allowing Gyarados,Thundurus and Blissey to move first,sets up spikes,power whip is way better than gyro ball,STAB and forces switches,the EV's are to better tank special hits,i like keeping both defenses even.

    Threats

    Basically all dragons i can't kill,nothing worse than ferrothorn being weakened and having to sacrificing someone to end an outrage,Latios in particular can kill one of my pokes before stepping into KO range,it ain't easy getting terrakion to go 1v1 vs him,rotom w is also EXTREMELY annoying for my gyarados and terrakion

    I'm also afraid to change anything due to synergy,i need a rapid spinner for gyarados and thundurus.

    LOL,apologies for the ridiculously large pics.

    the pics made it really hard to see the actual team, please redo that. I can't even see the terrakion set under the picture.

    you may want to try subdd gyara, as it can set up on much more than normal gyara, things rachi or ferro without power whip that can't tocuh gyara but have status. The moveset is waterfall/dd/sub/bounce.

    starmie could be a good choice as it has rapid spin and is fast/offensive.

    you could try agility thundurus to have a better chance at sweeping some teams.

    Gyara+thundurus is a great combination, but you might want to make terrakion sd or rock polish (i can only see that it is scarfed) to set up on things like scarfed stone edge that hit both gyara and thundurus.

    Blissey can take on latios without trick or psyshock, but ttar is a better stop to latios and can get up sr, as well as give you something to use against rain/sun.

    Cool team, but the huge pictures make it really badly presented. That makes it harder to see the team and give a constructive rate, so I'd fix that.
