Solid Team,  though I would not use Amoongus as the lead. But it really doesnt matter, as Wifi will allow to use  any Pokemon that you use.

Okay, You've asked me to answer this, so here I go! When we battled I didn't really notice much, but ow that I see this team I've noticed a couple of problem. Probopass massively walls this team, the only Pokemon who can touch it is Sawk, which is walled by Musharna and Misdreavus, But I'll be trying to fix that with some suggestions. ت

Amoongus

Ahh, no apparent problems here.


Alomomola

Well, I'm not dissing alomomola, it's really good don't get me wrong. But that set is a little tooo gimmicky to work IMO. (No offense mike) so I'd probably suggest Regirock, he has pretty good synergy with Amoonguss, and can set up rocks / t-wave support for you team. The main Pokemon that come to my mind without completely throwing off the not so "alomomoonguss" team would be Miltank, Lickilicky, maybe even specially defensive gardevior, but then that means you'll need to change amoonguss to be defensive. and Regirock. You can have your pick.

Miltank @ Leftovers
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+Sdef, -SAtk)
- Heal Bell
- Milk Drink
- Body Slam
- Toxic

Lickilicky (M) @ Chople Berry
Trait: Own Tempo
EVs: 252 HP / 112 Def / 144 Spd
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Wish
- Protect / Toxic
- Heal Bell
- Body Slam

Keep in mind these set is walled by a common threat, haunter & even misdreavus

Regirock @ Leftovers
Trait: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Stone Edge
- Drain Punch
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock / Ice Punch

You can throw Thunder wave in where ever you feel it's needed if needed at all


From here on, the suggestions will be rather minor since all four of these Pokemon are pretty much standard


Misdreavus

No suggestions.


Sawk

He,s pretty old school now that pinsir has started to rise. There isn't much Cask can do that pin sir can't. Just watch out for those damn ditto's -___-

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


Electabuzz

My only suggestion would be to change thunder bolt to Volt Switch, only to keep momentum in your side. If it doesn't kill, it's easily revenged by a sol's sucker punch, or pin sir can easily get a moxie boost.


Absol

No suggestions, but don't forget to give credit to Trachy. :3

Nah, CC is much more easily spammable, & Sawk gets STAB on it. Volt Switch for Psychic, not Thunderbolt. And credit to me for Regimoonguss :D
Alomomola's set works perfectly for me.
Skuntank shuts that set up so fast it's not even funny. And it can potentially poison it with poison jab.
Skuntank is getting rarer and rarer these days but you have a point. Remember how i pwned your Moxie Pinsir with Ditto? xD
But i say, take advantage of Skuntank's rareness and use dat Alo.
Skuntank isn't that rare, also I wouldn't brag about using ditto JCM. You know it's cheap as hell yet you think you've accomplished something. Just no.
Eh, so many people use Ditto, dude. I admit it's cheap but your agony is ending in a while as he's shifting tiers.

Not at all dissing Riles's answer, it was great. But I love the forum based style for these, because there is always another opinion to be heard and more suggestions to be given. Mine for this team aren't initially vital, I was just closer to the answer button than the comment button xD


I actually think Alomomola still out classes both of the mentioned walls, due to typing mainly when paired with Amoongus. Although Pain Split is my preferred choice over Knock Off. While Knock Off is commonly used to break Eviolite users, it's became so common and predictable on Alomomola that people will rarely have the balls to stay in with their Eviolite users. Wish-Split is one of the most amazing things, on the other hand. It's mainly for those insanely low HP Wishes though, considering Alomomola's monstrous HP. Other options for that moveslot are Dive and Bounce to stall out Toxic a bit more.

Though HP Fighting + Shadow gives awesome coverage on Misdreavous, Thunderbolt also gives great coverage and provides power for you. Alomomolas also can troll pretty hard with that HP on a 85 base Sp atk pokemon... so yeah.

Honestly I think Sawk is still a better choice than Pinsir due to actually getting STAB off of Close Combat and having Sturdy. While Moxie may seem appealing, there isn't much you can't OHKO with a STAB Close Combat from Sawk.

I find a Liechi Berry / Salac Berry to be more appealing as an item than a Fighting Gem. Especially when paired with Substitute.

Musharna...
Fus ro da! If that doesn't work, you switch. xD
Also, that IS just one pokemon.
