Aipom @ Life Orb
Trait: Pickup
Level: 5
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 236 Spd / 196 Atk / 76 SDef
Jolly Nature
- Fake Out
- Shadow Claw
- U-turn
- Seed Bomb

Standard lead Aipom. Fake Out is there for a free hit and a flinch, STAB and it can hurt a bit. Shadow Claw is there in case a ghost type, such as Frillish decides to come into my Fake Out. U-Turn is in case I want to get out and do damage. Jolly Nature plus those Speed EVs make so not many Pokemon, except Scarfs, can hit me before I U-Turn out. Seed Bomb is just there for an extra move in case I run into a Rock type. Life Orb is there because I thought it'd be good since I use it on my UU Ambipom lead.

Axew @ Lum Berry
Trait: Mold Breaker
Level: 5
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 220 Spd / 220 Atk / 68 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Outrage
- Aqua Tail
- Superpower

Another one of my sweepers. Bronzor sets up the screens, I set up one or two Dragon Dances and it's game over. Mold breaker really is great on this guy especially if a Pokemon with Sturdy comes in on the last turn of my Outrage. Aqua Tail is there for coverage while Super Power Covers opposing ice types.

Tirtouga @ White Herb
Trait: Sturdy
Level: 5
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 180 Spd / 212 Atk / 116 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Shell Smash
- Earthquake
- Aqua Jet
- Stone Edge

Tirtouaga is my physical sweeper of the team. After one Shell Smash and the White Herb you're going to have a pretty hard time taking this guy down. I know what you're thinking, "How can you set up a Shell Smash without taking too much damage?" That's Bronzor's part in the team, I'll get to him later however. Aqua Jet might just be 40 BP but STAB and the Shell Smash boost can pack a punch. Stone Edge is an OHKO when it hits and if it doesn't it will still deam them almost worthless in their lack of HP. Earthquake is there for coverage and things such as Ferroseed. The Evs work perfectly since I'm going to need Speed and Attack in order to sweep.

Bronzor @ Light Clay
Trait: Levitate
Level: 5
EVs: 252 SDef / 52 SAtk / 204 Def
Sassy Nature
- Light Screen
- Reflect
- Stealth Rock
- Psychic

Bronzor is my dual screen and rocks setter of the team. Light Screen and Reflect are used right after Rocks are set up so I can use those 6 and 7 turns of screens to set up with Tirtouga. Psychic is only used as STAB in case I get taunted. The EVs are used in order live more hits in case Tirtouga is fainted and more screens are need for other sweepers.

Natu @ Leftovers
Trait: Magic Bounce
Level: 5
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 236 SDef / 36 Atk / 236 HP
Careful Nature
- Thunder Wave
- Wish
- Protect
- U-turn

I'm using Natu for Wish support. Magic Bounce works in case someone wants to Spore or Toxic me. The strategy is if one of my sweepers is hurt I switch into Bronzor, set up screens, switch into Natu, Wish, U-Turn into the sweeper and it's done. Protect works for when I want to keep the wish to Natu.

Abra @ Expert Belt
Trait: Magic Guard
Level: 5
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 196 Spd / 236 SAtk / 76 SDef
Timid Nature
- Shadow Ball
- Psyshock
- Encore
- Charge Beam

This is my special sweeper. Magic Guard protects me from Stealth Rock/Poison/Burn/Spikes. I used Shadow Ball to cover incoming Psychic Pokemon and Ghosts. Pyschock is STAB and packs a punch after a few Charge Beam boosts. Encore is used in case I see a lead Ambipom and I want it stuck into Fake Out. I get a few Charge Beams up and a few Special Attack boosts and I can sweep with Abra. The Special Defense EVs are there to increase my survivability in case another fast Abra comes in with Shadow Ball.

I don't see much flaws on this team.
Thanks :)
Your team is very Physically inclined, meaning you could have problems with a Physically Defensive Pokemon.
Ya I was thinking the same thing. Maybe Darumaka could be replaced. Even of a physical wall was in, all my sweepers have enough power to at less 2hko something like ferroseed
