    This team I made is in contribution to the team I seen Superman1 make, and have faced with abit of a twist on his team. My core is Registeel and Deoxys-D I added a parashifter in the form of Dragonite and rotom-W to break possible set up attempts. Meinshao i put in as more a filler pokemon and to be a hit and run while mamoswine

    Deoxys-D@leftovers
    Ability Pressure
    Ev’s 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    Calm Nature
    - Spikes
    - Taunt
    -Stealth Rock
    -Recover

    Deoxys-D is my lead to set up entry hazards and taunt any pokemon that try to set up. After spikes are set uptho he has no moves he can still act as a great stall with recover or lay down more spikes/rocks if they get spun away.

    Meinshao@lifeorb
    Naive
    Regenarator
    252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
    -Uturn
    -Hi Jump Kick
    -Fakeout
    -HP(ICE)

    Mainly used as a trick, since many people will think this is who im going to lead with when they see it in team preview. When this pokemon is subbed in tho I can use him as a hit and run pokemon healing up everytime it subs out.

    Registeel@leftovers
    Careful
    Clear Body
    252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
    -Ironhead
    -Curse
    -Rest
    -Sleep Talk

    He is what the team is based on a true anti speed pokemon. With each curse that is used his speed lowers but his ability to tank moves even some of his weaknesses. Once his health starts to dip is when I begin to use rest and sleep talk cycle.

    Dragonite@Leftovers
    Careful
    Multiscale
    252 HP / 44 Atk / 212 Spe
    -Roost
    -Thunderwave
    -Dragontail
    -Substitute

    My parashifter, once my entry hazards are set up I can use him to parashift on-comming mons that try to set up, ruining baton pass teams and teams that rely on setting up first. I Roost once my health starts to dip low. He can also be used to check any ground moves that people try to use agenst registeel.

    Mamoswine @ Choice Band
    Ability: Snow Cloak
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    Adamant Nature
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Shard
    - Stone Edge
    - Icicle Crash

    Mamoswine is my late game sweeper with a powerful stab Earthquake and priority ice shard he fills this task perfectly. He also has good synergy with the rest of my team checking most of my teams weak spots.

    Rotom-Wash @ Choice Scarf
    Ability: Levitate
    EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 HP
    Timid Nature
    - Volt Switch
    - Hydro Pump
    - Hidden Power [Fire]
    - Trick

    Trick rontom is great for breaking down opponents walls taking away their valuable leftovers or evolite and locking them into a choice move. Rotom can check most of registeels weaknesses volt switch out or do what is needed to take down and cripple other mons.

    This team has seen many victories and a couple of losses, but nothing to major that I can directly point out, and was wondering if someone would be able to rate this team and see if there is anything that can help fix up a few holes that are in it. Personally I don’t find Meinshao to be holding up in the team as much as everyone

    Actually Registeel is my focus on this team, and he actually doe REALL good in a OU Tier, its just that he isnt OVERUSED which is why is isnt in the OUVERUSED teir, but back to the point the core of the team I built was mainly around registeel

    To be honest, I'm not quite sure what to say about this team yet. I'll try playing with it a bit and see if I can find any weaknesses.

    After playing a couple games with it, I can tell that this team is devastated by entry hazards. Mamoswine is incredibly powerful, and one Earthquake can break a Baton Pass team in seconds. Anyway, Dragonite doesn't have a place on this team - everything is either already quite fast or too bulky to care about whether or not the opponent is paralyzed, except for Mamo, who serves as more of a hit and run Pokemon. Thus, Dragonite is the first to go. I suggest replacing it with a Forretress. While it admittedly isn't the greatest Rapid Spinner in OU, it serves as a Pokemon that can take most physical attacks thrown at it, remove hazards while setting up its own, and strike back with a powerful Gyro Ball. It supports the team in ways that Dragonite couldn't dream of.

    This opens up a bit of a weakness to Water. Since Forretress now has one of your hazards covered, I suggest changing Deoxys to a Specially Defensive Jirachi. This Jirachi was designed with bulk in mind, and given Jirachi's great attributes, it's no surprise that this is one of OU's most popular sets. A moveset of Stealth Rock, Wish, Iron Head and a paralysis-inducing move make for one tough egg to crack.

    With a slight Fire weakness on the rise - given your four weaknesses to it - my last suggestion is to change Mienshao to a Choice Politoed. Politoed's Rain will only aid your team, as you can stop opposing weather teams without their own Politoed and reduce your Fire weakness. Politoed's rain also makes Rotom all the more threatening, as a Rain-boosted Hydro Pump - from either Pokemon - is nothing to laugh at. Politoed can use either Choice Specs for more power or Choice Scarf for more Speed, as the two are otherwise the same set. Both play differently, however, so choose carefully and don't be afraid to switch the items.

    If you choose to add Politoed, change Rotom's Hidden Power to Grass, as Gastrodon otherwise can pose a problem for your team.

    Sets (importable format - SpD = SDef = Special Defense; Spd = Spe = Speed (open)

    - Volt Switch / Earthquake / Toxic Spikes

    Jirachi @ Leftovers
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 252 HP / 224 SDef / 32 Spd
    Careful Nature
    - Iron Head
    - Body Slam / Thunder Wave
    - Wish

    - Hidden Power [Grass]
    - Focus Blast


    Also, Uomo Solo, a good player can make any Pokemon this side of Luvdisc work in OU - some people have achieved incredibly high rankings with Pokemon such as Spinda, Mightyena, Cinccino, etc. Long story short - don't knock it 'til you try it.

    You could use the standard spinning set of Starmie, as long as you switch Mamo into T-Bolts and such.
