Rate my Sun team, Please

Alright, this is a sun team. This was made for the Outsiders Challenge, so I can't use Heatran. Here's the team.

Ninetales (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 120 SDef / 136 Spd
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Flamethrower
- Will-O-Wisp
- Substitute
- Hidden Power [Fighting]

No sun team is complete without this baby. I have tested many, many sets for tales, with this bulky will-o-wisp being my preferred set. I found it fits well on this team, as Tyranitar can be a problem if it evades my Ape and Dugtrio. With Will-O-Wisp, I can render a T-Tar useless and give Dugtrio a free switch-in.

Dugtrio (F) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Arena Trap
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Memento
- Reversal
- Earthquake
- Sucker Punch

As stated in the Ninetales bit, this is my revenge killer. Heatran and Tyranitar are big problems if they come in on things other than Ape. With Dugtrio, one correct prediction and those things are as good as dead. I gave it a sash so a surprise scarfer can't OHKO me, and so I can spam Reversal.

Exeggutor (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- SolarBeam
- Sleep Powder
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Psychic

Here's my big trump card. With Venusaur fast becoming a sun staple, other Chlorophyll sweepers have faded away. However, Exeggutor is one of the stand-outs. With a massive SAtk, Exeggutor hits like a truck with a life orb, OHKOing many a powerful Pokemon. Solarbeam is a phenomenal STAB move, and HP Fire gives it that great Grass/Fire Coverage. Psychic can work as a secondary STAB, or a backup move if sun is down. Overall, this is a fantastic poke. Watch out, Venusaur. Exeggutor's coming right up.

Infernape (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Blaze
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Close Combat
- Flare Blitz
- U-turn
- Stone Edge

This poke... this is the beast. Choice Banded Ape. Is. A. Powerhouse. The power behind a CB Close Combat is unbelievable. This is my Stall/Blissey Breaker, as it is the Powerful Physical attacker. U Mad, Blissey?

Rotom-W @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 168 Def / 88 Spd
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Thunder Wave
- Volt Switch
- Hydro Pump
- Substitute

What? Rotom-W on a Sun Team? Is Phazon crazy? Yeah, this looks weird to people who lack imagination. But honestly, this thing is quite terrifying if played correctly. Instead of a standard Will-O-Wisp/Pain Split set, this one focuses on Thunder Wave to cripple opposing switch-ins, and sub to try to spam for para-hax. But most of all, this thing is a rain counter. This is its big use. Politoed wants to come in? NOPE.

Porygon2 @ Eviolite
Trait: Download
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Tri Attack
- Ice Beam
- Discharge
- Recover

Screw Lugia, THIS is the Great Wall. Porygon2 is simply unbreakable. If you come in on a physical wall, you get the download SAtk boost. Then, the opponent is in trouble. This is a great poke to stay in and weaken opposing Pokemon, freeing the way for a late-game Exeggutor sweep.

There you go, a team. Now go to town, team raters. :toast:
