The while team is NU except for mismagius
yea i made a mistake
whats NU and why not eveolved misdreauvus
oh god xD NU is Neverused, a Smogon tier. And he hasn't evolved Misdreavus because that would be UU, and therefore he can't use it.
With eviolite that misdreavus would be bossin.
Misdreavus should be a Physical wall. You lack sweepers.
EEEP, Ditto will be shifting tiers in a while. Have fun with him while you can.
Miltank makes an awesome core with Shelgon, i have to say.

Best answer

Now, even though there is a good answer, i'll be answering.

Ditto

Ditto is a great Pokemon but i don't know about the Nature and EV Spread you gave it. Bold will be decreasing his Attack and it's unfortunate if you switch in on a Physical Pokemon. I recommend Sassy Nature (+SDef,-Spd) and this EV Spread: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef. Of course, your EV Spread is just fine. Remember that Ditto's role is to switch in on set-up sweepers. BTW, don't use him as a lead and remember he'll be soon shifting tiers (all the way to OU). Have fun with him while you can.

Miltank

On to Miltank now. He's part of your defensive core, right? We'll be giving him a Defensive shift, so he'll be a Special Wall now. Switch EV Spread to 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 Atk and give him Careful Nature. Keep Thick Fat and you'll see why with the next Pokemon....

Shelgon

Shelgon! With Eviolite, he makes an excellent Defensive Pokemon. He performs a good Defensive core with Miltank, who can take Ice attacks with ease because of Thick Fat. We'll be replacing Misdreavus for him, unfortunately destroying your core. Eh, you'll find him better than Misdreavus :]. I have two sets for him, choose the one you like the most.

Shelgon @ Eviolite
Trait: Overcoat
EVs: 252 HP / 236 Def / 20 Atk
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Dragon Dance
  • Outrage
  • Rest
  • Sleep Talk

So Smogon calls dis set ''Bulky Dragon Dance''. It doesn't have this name for nothing, as it is virtually impossible to kill without a STAB Special Attack. Dragon Dance boosts his already high Attack and awful Speed to awesome and usable, respectively.

''Outrage is superior to Dragon Claw because Outrage will not have the
locking and confusion effects if selected by Sleep Talk.'' -Smogon

Exactly why Outrage is here. So ResTalk combination brings him back to full health, making him awfully hard to kill and may have the side effect that your opponents might want to kill you. At least they don't have your address ;D

Ninjask is in no way supporting your team and you don't even have Baton Pass on him, which is the only reason why you'd even use him. Instead, i suggest Rotom-S.

Rotom-S

Rotom-S @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Volt Switch
  • Trick
  • Hidden Power [Grass] / Thunderbolt
  • Air Slash

Of course, one of my favorite NU Pokes. Volt Switch is STAB and is a must-have on him. Trick screws over walls while Air Slash is STAB. 3rd moveslot is your choice. HP Grass is coverage against those nasty Rock types while T-Bolt is STAB and is if you plan to stay in.

Alo

Alomomola is perfect, don't forget to give credit to Mike for the awesome set.

To round out your team, we'll be replacing Vileplume for a Special Attacker. I suggest my favorite tank, Musharna. I would suggest Riles Gardevoir like i was planning to do but i would look like a copycat so.... yeah.

Musharna

Musharna @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252 Def/ 228 HP/ 16 SDef/ 16 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def,-Atk)

  • Calm Mind
  • Moonlight
  • Psychic
  • Signal Beam

Smogon's set with a slightly altered EV Spread. 16 SAtk provides a tiny bit more ''sweepiness'' with Calm Mind. Calm Mind makes him a Specially and Physically defensive beast while having great Special Attack. Moonlight shrugs off all damage taken while set-upping or sweeping. Psychic is STAB while Signal Beam is coverage against Dark types.


Ok, so i hope i helped you. Beware of one thing though: Once Rotom-S and Ditto are dead, Shedinja sweeps your team. Hopefully, that won't happen.

No, Alomomola beats Shedinja one-on-one because of Knock Off.
So you know you wouldn't know how great that rotom set if I hadn't spawned you with it that one day xD
JCM the only thing that matters on Ditto is Item since it copies everything else
after all the testing JCM's won the most. But riles you are getting an up-vote riles which is equivalent to a BA
naw he has 3 upvotes
Yay, i got the BA :D
So him and JCM got excatly the same points from this

You asked me to answer this, so here I go. :3

Ditto

Man do I hate this thing, yes it's good don't get me wrong, but I'll be glad when it leaves NU, along with Gothitelle. It's tool cheap for NU. But it works good on your team. I can see you're using the scarfed set, which will make people think twice before setting up on you, but seeing that your team doesn't have a SR'r or a Spike'r that could potentially be a problem.

  • You could put either a focus sash, leftovers, or anything other than a choice item really, and use him to counter mist leads such as golem, piloswine, cacturn, garbodor, regirock ect, because they can't really touch you back. But this is tricky too, since you don't have a spinner, so you might want to think twice before trading hazards with someone. (This is optional since I know how good the choice set is)

Miltank

You have the Sdef move set, but not the Sdef EV spread? Miltank is a beast special wall. Even with it's current Def investment it's still not taking a close combat from sawk, or a super power from emboar / braviary.

  • I suggest you use this EV spread 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD And get rid of Thick-fat and out Sap Sipper and use Careful Nature Sap Sipper helps your Alomomtank defcore, so you only have to worry about electric attacks.

enter image description here Misdreavus

Okay again, you've got the CM move set with the nasty plot EVs? You're team would most likely benefit from a bulky nasty plot set. Or you could always go full on offensive.

  • Misdreavus (M) @ Eviolite
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP / 228 Def / 28 Spe
    Bold Nature(+Def, -Atk)
    • Shadow Ball
    • Nasty Plot
    • Substitute / Pain Split
    • Hidden Power [Fighting]

I always run 28 Spd EVs just so I can out speed the standard def sets. Without investment, after one nasty plot misdreavus's satk reaches 400+ which isn't too shabby, Sub / Pain Split is pretty much preference.


Ninjask

I'm sorry but this pokemon doesn't benefit your team at all, almost EVERY ninjask is baton pass which you don't have. But even if you did, you wouldn't have anyone to really abuse the speed. So I'd suggest a physical sweeper.

  • Pinsir (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Moxie
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
    • Earthquake
    • Close Combat
    • X-Scissor
    • Stone Edge

EdgeQuake, Dual STAB, Moxie+Scarf. This spells PERFECT REVENGE KILLER. It's ashamed it's 2 Speed Base Points away from being the best Rotom-S counter. He can also take fighting attacks, but that's nothing alomomola can't do.


Vileplume

Vileplume makes for a great def wall, but is pretty much out classed by amoongus. Sad, but true. I personally like vileplume better, be we all know amoongus is better, only difference is aromatherapy but that's why you have heal bell. So I'd recommend a Special sweeper to take it's place.

  • Gardevoir (M) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Trace
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
    • Psychic
    • Calm Mind
    • Thunderbolt
    • Grass Knot

The only reason I'm not suggesting the choice specs move set is because that would make 3 choices Pokemon on your team. Which isn't necessarily bad if you can pull it off, but... yeah I wouldn't,t recommend it.

answered Aug 31, 2012 by Riles
lol? dafuq does grass knot hit?
It's his only grass move seeing as he doesn't have a water type move either,. Hits regirock / golem / piloswine
Replacing a good grass type pokemon with a non grass type that has a crap grass move... Wise words from the NU master Riles.
You also forgot Alomomola
Grass knot is good in NU seeing how it's a 2HKO on Golem / Regirock etc. + Vileplume doesn't have the best move pool to be a special attacker like gardevoir does,
Wow, I was just kidding. Guess I'll take my upvotes elsewhere ._.
It's sad because even it has 2 more Speed points, Pinsir will have to rely on the shaky accuracy of Stone Edge. Also, Rotom-S should be able to OHKO it with Air Slash.
