Break This Team

well im p sure sub cm keldeo and ebelt volcanion single handedly solo that team, like both of them can almost do 1v6 and especially volcanion. The Flying core can be outplayed by bisharp and heatran, the second core is a psychic core and even tho sub hoopa can be terrifying and especially with that coverage there is a doublade and a bisharp on the team that can keep attacking hoopa and breaking its subs, even scizor can do it and ofc victini drops to bisharp. The dark core looks decent as well but its not as safe as the water core. I think that the best way to deal with it is therefore the water core.

Mega Garde pretty much solos this team but Mew and Gallade provide some insurance. Gardevoir's EVs allow it to take a Crunch from Mega Sharpedo and 80 SpA EVs allows it to OHKO or 2HKO anything on the team. Will-o-Wisp lets it cripple Tyranitar and Mandibuzz since you're pretty much going to just Hyper Voice the rest. Wish + Protect gives it longevity to keep breaking the team. Gallade is also EV'd to take a crunch from Mega Sharpedo and with Assault Vest it lives 2 Specs Dark Pulses from Hoopa-Unbound. Mew provides Heal Bell support and is yet another member of the team that can cripple Sharpedo and is guaranteed to take at least one STAB Dark move from anything with its Colbur Berry.

Very simple core. Scolipede with a Protect outspeeds and OHKO's every member on the team except Mandibuzz, Tyranitar and Bisharp). Forcing Mandibuzz out allows you to get a relatively free Baton Pass to Heracross which will outspeed and beat everything 1v1 as it OHKO's everything and Mandibuzz can't check it because of the lack of Brave Bird. Tyranitar shouldn't come out but if it does you can play around T-wave with Sub and play off a miss too. If Bisharp is out you can still Pass since Iron Head to Sucker Punch won't knock Heracross out.


PS: A bulkier version can be ran on Heracross since it can be easy to pass more than +2 speed.

Built around the sweeper core of Scarf-Cross and QD Volc. Armaldo helps with mainly Hydreigon, allowing both Hera and Volc to outspeed after a Knock, but also somewhat with Mandibuzz. It also helps keep pesky rocks away. Sharpedo is somewhat of an issue, however, the 40 Def EVs Heracross has allow it to guaranteed take 1 Zen after Rocks. Another thing is that with Tyranitar's Sand, which Heracross and Volc dislike, can be used in our favour, allowing it to eat special hits all day. Many Bug mons can support these team well, allowing for a solid core within a solid team.

Mega-Pidgeot could basically beat this team on its own with the exception of Whimsicott (which could cripple it), Breloom (if weakened enough to be killed by Mach Punch or if Focus Sash is intact) and maybe Cradily (although it'd have to rely on Hurricane not confusing to do its job). Diggersby fills in with nice priority in Quick Attack to deal with Breloom while having enough to power to demolish Cradily without relying on Hurricane confusing. Chansey is there just to absorb Stun Spores from Whimsicott, spread paralysis around and setting Stealth Rocks up to break Breloom's Focus Sash.

Infernape does extremely well against this team, being able to reliably deal with all but two or three Pokémon on the team. The other two Pokémon deal with these threats. MegaMedi also does really nicely against this team, being able to break through Venusaur, Ferrothorn and Cradily, outspeeding Celebi with Ice Punch and being able to go FO>Ice Punch to deal with Loom. Whimsicott is definitely an issue however, SpDef Cobalion was the best thing to deal with it. It has no speed investment so it can switch in on Stun Spores without caring, switch into Moonblast and hit back with an Iron Head. It can also set up Rock as an alternative way to break Looms Sash. All of these mons can prevent Hazards going up by either killing the setter or Taunting it. (you may have to watch out for Prot on Ferro tho with Medi)
 

Aggron @ Aggronite

Tyranitar @ Assault Vest

Sassy Nature
- Stone Edge
- Crunch

- Pursuit

Very few things can touch SpDef Mega Aggron on grass. Ferrothorn and Cradily can't touch it, defensive Venusaur does barely damage and Breloom can't even 4HKO since it's not Life Orb. Whimsicott's best play is to Encore and that leaves us with 1 big threat to it, Celebi. Assault Vest Tyranitar can trap Celebi with Pursuit, or even Crunch it for a guaranteed 2HKO no matter what.
