Im not very good at making teams, so I attempted to make an RU team. It Actually worked decently, so I want some help to see how I can make it better. When I make teams, I just use what works, so I don't have a designated psyhical attacker and such, but I can describe what they do on the field. So, I will now explain my team:
The Whole Team:
The Individual Pokemon:
Simon (Sigilyph) (M) @ Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard
EV's: 252 HP / 252 SAtk/ 4 SDef
Sigilyph. I have made people cry with this thing. In Ubers. This sigilyph does need some setup, but if it gets enough, this thing will wreck you. Stored power does some crazy equation that I do not undersatnd, but from what I get, the higher the stat boosts, the higher the power of the attack. So with cosmic power raising its Special Defense and its regular defense, this pokemon will not take much damage. And if it does take damage, you have roost to heal you back up to full health. But, for those dark types, you have air slash to be able to deal some damage. Somebody suggested charge beam since it has a chance of boosting Special Attack, but Air slash does more damage, it has stab, and has a high critical hit ratio. I have Life Orb on it because it boosts stored power even more, and because of Magic Guard, does not deal Sigilyph any damage. One hell of a beast if you can get enough cosmic powers in.
Isabelle (Illumise) (F) @Focus Sash
EV's: 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 Def
This Illumise is meant to do some non-attacking damage. It's ability allows it to move first for all of its moves, so speed is not an issue. It uses Toxic immidately, because it will survive with the focus sash. If the foe uses a stat boosting move, it goes for the encore, allowing another one of my pokemon to take the defenseless pokemon down. Or, it could go for the roost to heal up any damage taken. Either way, this Illumise can setup some crippling things, and is a decent addition to my team. It is expendable, and does not need to survive very long to be useful.
Kyle (Kabutops) (M) @Leftovers
Ability: Weak Armor
EV's: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
This Kabutops can do some hefty pshyical damage. If it sets up a single swords dance, it can do massive damage to a lot of pokemon. Aqua jet allows it to move quickly, and that is crucial when facing faster pokemon. Its Weak Armor allows it to also move faster with stone edge if nescesary, and do some good damage to grass pokemon that might pose as a threat. It can also lay down the rocks for switch in damage. This pokemon is mediocre, and I think has some room for improvement.
TakeABump (Cradilly) (M) @Focus Sash Fixed In Comments
Ability: Suction Cups
EV's: 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 Atk
Cradilly. Another pokemon that uses some setup. I got sweeped by this pokemon before, and it made me angry. But, a sweeping pokemon that makes you angry could be a good addition to a team, so dedicated to the user TakeABump, we have Cradilly. This cradillys main feature is stockpile. Getting some massive defensive stats on an already bulky special defensive pokemon is huge. Then, add on the swords dance and you are ready to go. Recover is there for health, and rock slide will just do a lot of damage. This pokemon also has Suction Cups rather then Storm Drain to prevent the loss of stat boosts by attacks like Roar and Whirlwind. Overall, this pokemon is near the same as my Sigilyph, in that it needs some setup, but once it gets some stat boosts, it is nearly indestructible.
Lyre (Luxray) (M) @ Toxic Orb Fixed In Comments
EV's: 252 Spe / 252 Atk / 4 Sdef
This Luxray is a basic pokemon. It has a wide range of Phsyical attacks, and the flame orb + guts makes them even stronger. I chose flame orb over toxic orb because not only does burn do less damage then badly poisoned, but the ability Guts also negates the attack drop from burn. This pokemon has a large coverage, and its strongest move (Wild Charge) Also gets STAB boost for it, along with guts. It truly can deal out some damage.
Tanya (Torkoal) (F) @ Charcoal Fixed In Comments
EV's: 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 Def
This torkoal isn't the best, but it does well as a mixed attacker. It has Charcoal which not only gives STAB to lava plume, but then multiplies it by 1.2. This torkoal can also put pokemon to sleep, and burn them. I have both because if I encounter a pokemon with an ability like Insomnia, Early Bird or Guts, I can use the move that does not help them. This pokemon is pretty bulky and can take many attacks, so it is a good pokemon to have
Well, thats my team. If you have any advice for it, I would greatly appreciate it. Also, this team has won 4/7 times, but I still see room for improvement.
When given a suggestment, I will change the movesets, abilitys and items, but the paragraph will stay the same. Just thought I should let people know if you got confused that the paragraph was different from the moveset.
