Hi, I'm new here but I've been reading a lot about competitive battling and after lots of thinking I manage to create a Sandstorm Team for battling in DPP, there will be a tournamente in my city and Gen IV and V are allowed to participate. I took a lot of time to build this team, I already battled with some of my friends that too have competitive pokemon, I've won mostly of the battles but suggestion would be appreciated. I trained them in the proper EV for them as much as I can. To begin these are my Pokemon: Specilally Defensive Hippowdown Careful Nature Leftovers Moves: Stealth Rock Earthquake Slack Off Ice Fang I lead with him to set the Sandstorm and continue with Stealth Rock. I usually continue with him unless theres a major threat like Swampert or Gyarados. Choice Band Metagross Adamant Nature Choice Band Moves: Meteor Mash ThunderPunch Earthquake Explosion He's my principal Physical Sweeper, although I have some problems beng locked into the wrong move after a sweep. Skarmory is a biggest pain. Mixed Attacker Infernape Adamant Nature Life Orb Moves: Flamethrower Close Combat Stone Edge Grass Knot Usually use him if Metagross faints. It haves some nice coverage, but Swampert or Dragonite easily walls her. Paraflinch Togekiss (Serene Grace) Bold Nature Leftovers Moves: Air Slash Aura Sphere Roost Thunder Wave My best annoyer, I've won battles with his devastating combo of Thunder Wave and Air Slash. The real big problem are status spreaders and anything that does not take much damage form Air Slash or Aura Sphere. Defensive Rotom Impish Nature Leftovers Moves: Thunderbolt Shadow Ball Will o Wisp Hydro Pump/Leaf Storm He can take hits and walls very good mostly all attacks... The issue is that Blissed hampers him easily since she can cure the burn and laugh almost all my moves. I switch forms to cover some holes in my team. But usually it is in the Mow Form. Agility Empoleon Modest Nature Life Orb Moves: Surf Ice Beam Grass Knot Agility If I manage to set up, he sweeps like a beast, unfortunately, Choice Scarf Starmie or Jolteon stop him with ease, even Blissey can wall his sweep. Well, I would love anny comments about how to improve my team. Thanks!
