Hey guys, I'm new here, I stopped playing Pokemon years ago after I finished gen 3. Then a few months ago I went back and started playing gen 3 games again, but a few days ago I decided to move on to gen 4 so i got Soul Silver. Here's my team, I know it might have some flaws so I'm open to any suggestions big or small. Thanks. @Adamant 252Attack/252HP/4Spd - (QuickClaw) Stealth Rock Earthquake Hammer Arm Light Screen Metagross is my opener, with stealth rock to stop them from switching a lot during the game, and also hurt their flying types (Dragons Specifically). Light screen is to set up a good sp wall for my sweepers who need it. Then Hammer arm and Earthquake for coverage and sweeping if they send in something week as a opener. If Metagross stays alive I will use it periodically during the match as a wall and a setup with more light screens. @Timid 252Spd/252SpAttack/4HP - (Focus Slash) Hydro Pump Ice Beam Thunderbolt Rapid Spin Starmie is my Rapid Spinner & Sp Sweeper. It has Ev's in speed & SpAttack obviously so it can sweep and also switch in for a quick rapid spin if they decide to use hazards on their team. Focus Sash to get an extra hit in. @Calm 252SpAttack/136Spd/126HP - (Life Orb) Focus Blast Giga Drain Substitute Will-o-Wisp Gengar is another special sweeper on the team, but he also servers the purpose of WoW for thier physical pokemon. The plan for him is to substitute right away and then WoW if its a physical pokemon or sweep right away if not. When in doubt switch to Gengar for a easy sweep. I chose Focus Blast instead of Shadow Ball purely because it has much stronger power and also more coverage on different types. Giga Drain is a Swampart counter or to just heal if they send out something week to grass. @Timid 252SpAttack/252Speed/4HP - (Leftovers) Nasty Plot Aura Sphere Flamethrower Airslash Togekiss is my final special sweeper. It is a pretty bulky Pokemon with great stats. Flamethrower is a scizor/skarm/foretress counter. Nasty Plot obviously to open with when Togekiss is switched in. Aura Sphere and Airslash are for more coverage. I am considering taking out Airslash for Roost or Thunderwave but it leaves me weak to fighting types. @Adamant 252Attack/252Speed/4HP - (Shell Bell) Dragon Dance Ice Fang Aqua Tail Earthquake Gyrados is my main physical sweeper. Open up with dragon dance and then keep killing anything that comes its way. Then slip in another dragon dance when they give me a free turn. I thought maybe shell bell would be a good item for Gyrados to hold because its going to be doing massive amounts of damage so it would heal a significant amount. Life Orb is another option but I feel like it would hurt Gyrados too much were as Gengar is protected by the substitute. @Adamant 252Attack/200HP/56Spd - (Choice Scarf) Hammer Arm Fire Punch Rock Slide Return Slaking is my teams secret weapon. With a STAB return attack, Slaking will definitely be a huge threat to the opponent's fragile Pokemon. I also will use Slaking as a special wall and send him out when needed to block a hit and then wipe out their sweeper next turn. I wont keep him in for long periods of time. He's more of a block the hit, strike back, and then switch out Pokemon. Choice Scarf is to make sure he goes first after he takes a hit. The choice side effect doesn't bother Slaking because he's only staying in for one turn anyways.
