I've been making alot of teams, this one is one of my favorites.

Hey! Its Gengar, the ruler of the metagame, welcome to my team!
Excellent Lead killer, And since i'm not doing rocks on this team, I figured
Why not go ahead and get a nice lead killer.

Gengar (M) @ Wise Glasses
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Shadow Ball

  • Sludge Bomb

  • Giga Drain

  • Focus Blast

Omastar, My trusty special sweeper, Although Is easily destroyed my priority, He works quite well.

Omastar (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Weak Armor
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Surf

  • Ice Beam

  • Shell Smash

  • Toxic Spikes

My priority user, and Second special sweeper, Nasty plot + Vacuum Wave is my most used strategy, but i'm still on the edge about whether to keep aura sphere, Help on him?

Lucario (M) @ Wise Glasses
Trait: Steadfast
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Nasty Plot

  • Aura Sphere

  • Vacuum Wave

The Big bad LANDORUS!
My First Physical Sweeper, Being able to switch in on an earthquake, very usefull.
One Swords Dance, and the earthquake sweeping, Thinking of replacing Outrage for U-Turn

Landorus (M) @ Muscle Band
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Swords Dance

  • Earthquake

  • Stone Edge

  • Outrage

My Second Physical Sweeper, Who if attacked, Dies.
Pretty simple to use, Lots of Attacks not requiring any setting up, just send him in and sweep.

Darmanitan (M) @ Muscle Band

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Earthquake

  • Stone Edge

Ditto!
With Imposter, Having one of these guys just plain kicks butt, with quick powder making him faster, but not locking him into the same move like choice scarf, he is a plain beast out there.

Ditto @ Focus Sash
Trait: Imposter
EVs: 252 Speed 252 Hp
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)

  • Transform

If Gengar is going to be your lead, you'll need HP Fire. Replace the innacurate Focus Blast for Hidden Power Fire. Gengar is fragile, so just give it a Life Orb to do more damage. You can always heal it off with Giga Drain if it is needed. Sludge Bomb gets such poor coverage, so you might want to replace it with Thunderbolt, but this is not neccessary. Fill out its EVs, You never know when 1 HP is the difference between being KOd or surviving.

I don't like the idea of running both Toxic Spikes and Shell Smash. Choose one or the other, preferably Shell Smash, due to there being tons of better Toxic Spikes, while only Cloyster otclasses Omastar at Shell Smashing. So replace Toxic Spikes with something like HP Rock. Also, fill out EVs.

Replace Dragon Pulse with Dark Pulse on Lucario to get the awesome Dark+Fighting type coverage. Fill out EVs. Give it a Life Orb though.

I'd suggest Leftovers on Landorus. Also, if using Sheer Force, give it Rock Slide instead of Stone Edge. It has a good Special Attack stat, so you can go with a +Speed, -Sp Def nature and give Landorus something like Psychic or Focus Blast. Fill out those EVs.

Darmanitan should also be using Rock Slide instead of Stone Edge. I'd suggest giving it either a Choise Scarf or Choice Band, or even a Life Orb due to havng no recoil thanks to Sheer Force.
