Little Cup Mono-Dragon Team

Axew@Eviolite

Ability: Mold Breaker
Nature: Impish (+ Defense, -Sp.Attack)
EVs: 220 Attack/ 72 HP/ 36 Defense/ 36 Sp.Defense/ 140 Speed
-Outrage
-Reversal
-Dragon Dance
-Substitute
Outrage is STAB, Reversal is to do some more damage, Substitute is to get in some Dragon Dances before I start sweeping :)

Dratini@Eviolite

Ability: Shed Skin
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Sp.Attack)
EVs: 28 HP/ 8 Attack/ 236 Defense/ 196 Sp.Defense/ 40 Speed
-Extreme Speed
-Dragon Tail
-Rest
-Waterfall
Extreme Speed is priority, Dragon Tail is STAB and gets rid of sweepers by switching them out. Rest is to heal should your life get too low, and hopefully Shed Skin can cure your condition right away. Waterfall is to get rid of Gligars that stand in your way.

Gible@Life Orb

Ability: Rough Skin
Nature: Naïve (+Speed, -Sp. Defense)
EVs: 196 Attack/ 196 Speed/ 116 Sp.Attack
-Outrage
-Fire Blast
-Earthquake
-Substitute
Outrage is a major STAB, and can cause trouble for most LC teams. Earthquake
is more STAB, Fire Blast is for Ice types, and Substitute is to protect yourself when you don’t want to take damage.

Charmander@Oran Berry

Ability: Blaze
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 196 Attack/ 196 Speed/ 116 Defense
-Thunder Punch
-Crunch
-Flare Blitz
-Iron Tail
Flare Blitz is STAB and good against a lot of types. Crunch and Iron Tail
are coverage, and Thunder Punch takes care of Horseas and Shellders.

Horsea@Eviolite

Ability: Sniper
Nature: Modest (+Sp.Attack, -Attack)
EVs: 40 Speed/ 236 Sp.Defense/ 196 Sp.Attack/ 36 HP
-Surf
-Ice Beam
-Signal Beam
-Flash Cannon
Surf is STAB, Ice Beam to cover Extreme-Speed Dratini, Signal Beam and Flash Cannon are coverage.

Bagon@Life Orb

Ability: Sheer Force
Nature: Adamant (+Attack, -Sp. Attack)
EVs: 196 Attack/ 196 Speed/ 76 Defense
-Dragon Claw
-Fire Fang
-Dragon Dance
-Crunch
Dragon Claw is a reliable STAB, Fire Fang is for those Bronzors that resist your Dragon Claw, Dragon Dance is for boosting, and Crunch is more coverage.

Any suggestions are welcome, as there can be a lot of them!

Charmander isnt a dragon type
I know, but instead of using the Dragon type, I used the Dragon egg group so I could get more coverage.
isn't extreme speed illegal for dratini
No he can learn it as an egg move.

Best answer

I'm gonna rate this one.

Axew:

Take out reversal.Only if you have very low hp,it will really be somewhat effective.So replace it superpower.Just dont care if the defense falls down.You have got eviolite right?So,dont worry,axew can survive with a lot of powerful attacks.If you really want to have reversal,try this moveset:

Axew@Eviolite
Ability: Mold Breaker
Nature: Impish (+ Defense, -Sp.Attack)
EVs: 220 Attack/ 72 HP/ 36 Defense/ 36 Sp.Defense/ 140 Speed
-Outrage
-Reversal
-Dragon Dance
-Endure

First use a couple of dragon dances to boost up that attack and speed of axew's.Then use endure which leaves you in 1 HP.Then use reversal.What a deadly combination.An all out attack that guarantees OHKO for many pokemons.


Dratini:

Looks good.


Gible:

Remove rough skin as abiility.Its greatest advantage in the metagame is Sand Veil, which gives it an evasion boost in sandstorm that will potentially allow it to set up a free Substitute, much like its big brother Garchomp. Maximizing Gible's potential from Sand Veil is your best option when using this little dragon.

Now for the moveset.Fire blast should be removed.Come on! Why fire blast when he has poor SpA when he has great Atk. Replace that with iron head which at times makes the target flinch.Other moves are great.So no changes to that.


Charmander:

Needs some improvement.Try this awesome moveset.

Charmander@Choice scarf
Nature:Adament
EV's:44 HP / 180 Atk / 16 Def / 236 Spe
Ability:Blaze

~ Flare Blitz
~ ThunderPunch
~ Brick Break
~ Rock Slide

Charmander is fast enough to reach 21 Speed while holding a Choice Scarf, allowing it to function as an effective revenge killer. The moves are quite simple here. Flare Blitz is the main STAB move and has considerable power, making it the primary option. ThunderPunch gets coverage on Water-types, while Brick Break hits Houndour and Munchlax. Lastly, Rock Slide is a good option to hit opposing Fire-types. These four moves combine for great coverage, allowing Charmander to revenge kill a myriad of threats.


Horsea:

Looks good.


Bagon:

Just replace fire fang with brick break for more coverage.Other than that,it looks good.


Well,thats it with the little monsters.
