The Avengers!

Recently I watched the Avengers (Good movie btw) and I noticed with growing interest that there are 6 Avengers and 6 Pokemon on a team, so of course I made an Avengers themed polemon team. I tried to make the pokemon resemble the Avengers as much as possible but I started having trouble towards the end (Screw you Hawkeye). Enjoy!

Ha, the next Avengers movie will screw this team over, as it will have anywhere from 2-4 new members (Ant-Man and Wasp are pretty much confirmed since Marvel is a movie for them, we might also get Black Panther and Vision)
And how about Braviary for Captain America?
Run Sash on Widow. Zoroark is beyond too frail to get a reliable Nasty Plot. Switch Captain to a mixed Lucario.

Gimmicks that are half OU shouldn't be on the BS. Especially when the other half sucks in their own tiers.
TBH Floatzel was there to take advantage of enemy rain but Lucario could work as well
Captain America should be Braviary. Not because it will fit on your team, but Braviary even has the american colours all over it.
Imo, you can consider the Avengers members that are in the comics, e.g. Wolverine Spiderman. As for what Pokemon Spiderman would be, probably a bug type; Volcarona, Genesect, or Heracross. Idk about Wolverine, but a steel type wouldn't go amiss. This is to give you more options within your theme.

I've never seen an Avengers-based Pokémon team. Here's my review...

Machamp: The moveset you have come up with is one of the best I've seen. It has a perfect nature and perfect EVs. Its Ability is good for screwing opponents that are using Fly or something like that. If I were you, I'd put in coverage for Psychic types.

Thundurus: It's good. I think you should use the remaining EVs for defenses, so you could be a bit more bulky and set up better with Nasty Plot. The strategy you're using for it is great. The hold item is great as well.

Floatzel: Again, like the others, it's good, but I'd recommend a Jolly nature. Aqua Jet is great for finishing off weakened opponents and Pursuit has 80 base power when it's used on a target switching out. It's an annoyer in my opinion. I think a Mystic Water would be good to power up its two STAB attacks. Aqua Jet's base power will be 72 and Waterfall's base power will be 144!

Zoroark: It has the best strategy in the team! The only thing I'm worried about is Focus Blast. It has low accuracy compared to the other moves. But you can keep it if you want.

Scizor: I have to say that Bug Bite is not my kind of move, but it's good for stealing any Berries. Bullet Punch is perfect. Acrobatics with the Flying Gem is good too. Swords Dance is the best way to set up these moves. It's second with the good strategy after Zoroark.

Gallade: I think the best hold item would be Leftovers, just for restoring extra HP after using Drain Punch. Shadow Sneak is yet another great priority move. You can cut ahead of something fast like Gengar (It would also be super-effective!). It's third with the good strategy after Scizor.

My verdict on this team: Not good... Not great... Not awesome... ...It is one of the best teams ever!

Gets an up vote from me. I wish I could up vote it even more!

Errr... I answered this ages ago. It should have BA by now.
Though your not asking for it you are as good as asking for it. You only receive ba if your answer was helpful. I'm not saying it was bad but you suggested practically 2 things, one not being such a great suggestion. The rest that you wrote was basically stating the obvious like saying what the abilities do. Dont ask for ba, it's kind of point grubby. :L
