This team took out a 5/6 team of Ubers. One was a Venusaur. 4 out of my 6 Pokemon survived.

Nightmare (Garchomp) (M) @ Liechi Berry
Trait: Rough Skin
EVs: 168 Atk / 168 Def / 168 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Dual Chop
- Stone Edge

As you can see, I chose not to lead with my Weather Setter-Upper, Tyranitar. It's part of my Strategy. I lead with Garchomp, murder the weather lead, and set up the Sand later, so it's locked in. Dual Chop is just as powerful as Dragon Claw when it gets STAB (OR even when it's not) because it hits twice, 40 power a strike, and Dragon Claw is base 80. Earthquake and Stone Edge is the best combo sandwich you can ever get in a Sandstorm.

Mandibuzz (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Overcoat
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Toxic
- Roost
- Taunt
- Protect

A wall that is undamaged my sand due to Overcoat. Ha. Take that, Sandstorm. The rest is self-explanatory.

TYRANT (Tyranitar) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def / 4 HP
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Rock Polish
- Ice Punch
- ThunderPunch
- Stone Edge

My latter-Weather setup. It's a monster. With all the Defense (EVs), Special Defense (Sandstorm), Speed (Rock Polish), and Attack (EVs), it's a....a....what should I call this? Rapist? I have no idea.

Landorus (M) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Sand Force
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Earth Power
- Grass Knot
- Psychic
- Hidden Power [Rock]

I would've made it Physical but I needed a Special Attacker, and my in-game Landorus was special, so that's how I got this idea. I suppose this is OK, but this could get a little help.

SBR suggested I try a Rock Polish Landorus. OK, let's see about this one.

Landorus (M) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Sand Force
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Earth Power
- Grass Knot
- Rock Polish
- Hidden Power [Rock]

Lots more HP here. 382 seems pretty high, right? Cool. We'll probably survive a hit with it, Rock Polish to 476 speed and sweep. Weakness: Priority.

Simsala (Alakazam) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 128 HP / 248 SAtk / 4 SDef / 128 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Focus Blast
- Psychic
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Charge Beam

Everyone has seen this before. No Life Orb damage, No Sandstorm damage, ultimate death. Did you know Simsala is German for Alakazam? I thought that was cool.

Dugtrio (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Sand Force
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Sucker Punch
- Stone Edge
- Frustration

Now THIS was the main reason I won against that guy. He kills quick & fast. 339 speed and 426 Attack. Plus Sand Force and a Sucker Punch if needed. Take that, Deoxys-A and Mewtwo.

And I have a big, not huge, weakness to Ice. Tyranitar will take 'em down easily. And it's neutral to Alakazam, so as long as they aren't Specked or critical, I should survive a neutral hit. Oh. wait. except for Ubers.
Try change Garchomp to Heatran, with this moveset:
Heatran | Leftovers
Flash Fire | Calm (+SpDef -Atk)
252 HP | 252 SpDef | 4 Spd
Stealth Rock | Roar
Lava Plume | Protect
Maxing out his SpDef while the burn from Lava Plume giving more defense on physical side isn't bad.
You can give also Air Balloon to prevend getting OHKO'ed by Earthquake. I'm suggesting Heatran to resist any Ice-type attack (have ¼ resistance to Ice-type moves and with a max SpDef, making Ice Beam almost useless against him/her).
Cmndr if someone edits offensive names out of your rmt don't edit them back in :L
I don't see how Yo Mamma is offensive. It's offensive in jokes, but I would see about nobody caring about that. I'll change Dugtrio if I must...
