Hi NiloGregginz33!

Congrats on your ladder peak, but I have a just a few comments. Unfortunately, this belongs in the RMT section of the Smogon forums or in the Team Bazaar (linked here), and not as its own thread. So, I'm going to have to lock this.

However, I'll give you a few quick comments to hopefully improve the team. Return on Scarf Landorus-T might seem interesting as a generally powerful and widely unresisted move, but it doesn't do enough damage to Landorus-T's main targets and is never super effective or STAB-boosted. You're also running Amoonguss without any sort of terrain control to block the terrains that prevent its Spore, and for such an offensive team you're lacking in speed control like Tailwind or Icy Wind. The synergy seems decent, but I think right now it feels more like a collection of Pokemon than a cohesive team.

There are a few ways to fix this, so I'll quickly lay out a few options that I think retain the same style of team but should be more widely effective:

Whirlwind Heat Wave Zapdos / Earthquake Scarf Landorus-T / Rage Powder Amoonguss / Mega Metagross / Bulky Taunt Tapu Lele / (potentially) Sub Z-Volcanion

Life Orb Taunt Tapu Koko / Special Yache Berry Landorus-T / Rage Powder Amoonguss / Mega Metagross / Z-Volcanion / Assault Vest Kyurem-B

Pinch Berry Zeraora / Misty Seed Tornadus / Swords Dance Mega Scizor / Aurora Veil Alolan Ninetales / (Heal Pulse or Calm Mind) Tapu Fini / Quiver Dance Z-Volcarona

If you have any questions about what specific sets I'm recommending for any of the above teams, feel free to PM me. Good luck with the team!
