Tapu Koko and Raichu-Alola Surge Offense

Tapu Koko @ Life Orb
Ability: Electric Surge

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

Tapu Koko and Raichu make up the Electric Terrain core that i wanted to use before S/M came out but haven't yet tried to build around and so I'll try it now with the understanding that everyone knows what it does

Gyarados @ Waterium Z
Ability: Intimidate
Level: 50
EVs: 68 HP / 252 Atk / 12 Def / 4 SpD / 172 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Waterfall
- Dragon Dance
- Ice Fang
- Protect

It provides a physical attacker and Intimidate. most importantly it is a flying type because both Tapu Koko and Raichu are electric types so they are weak to ground

Tapu Bulu @ Leftovers
Ability: Grassy Surge
Level: 50
EVs: 244 HP / 140 Atk / 108 Def / 4 SpD / 12 Spe
Impish Nature
- Wood Hammer
- Horn Leech
- Substitute
- Protect

Provides another physical attacker, a fix to the ground weakness with its grass typing and grassy terrain lowering damage from earthquake

Ninetales-Alola @ Light Clay
Ability: Snow Warning
Level: 50
EVs: 44 HP / 28 Def / 180 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature

the team because of Gyarados and Tapu Bulu is less ground weak but i dont have a way to OHKO Garchomp

Marowak-Alola @ Thick Club
Ability: Lightning Rod
Level: 50
EVs: 252 HP / 172 Atk / 4 Def / 68 SpD / 12 Spe
Adamant Nature

Marowak finishes the fire water grass core and i already have intimidate so i didnt want arcanine

Interesting team, but how will you counter Trick Room teams, especially with mons such as Porygon2, Araquanid, or Muk?

I don't see a way to Taunt or pick up a clean KO on Porygon2 before it sets up TR. I can see that you have two Electric types that can counter Araquanid without TR, but if it is set up, you're in a really bad position as it can pretty much just tear through the team. For Muk, Marowak has Bonemerang but its damage output is kinda underwhelming and a miss can mean a clean sweep for Muk once it KOs your Marowak.
