Why does Ninetales have no STAB moves despite you investing 252 Sp. Atk in its EVs? Also, Leftovers > Grass Gem. Why is Blossom holding a Meadow Plate when it can hold Life Orb and do more damage? Venusaur: Black Sludge > Chesto Berry. Arcanine: you have no physical attacker, so use Flare Blitz, Extreme Speed, Wild Charge, Crunch/ Morning Sun. Sceptile: ability should be unburden with Flying Gem.

OK first off...Hi. Second, its time to see what you got...

I agree with Marzipans comment for Ninetales. Defensive Ninetales is fine but not with full SpAtk EV's. I think you may enjoy this better...

Ninetales @ Leftovers
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 SDef / 126 HP / 4 SAtk / 126 Def
Calm Nature
- SolarBeam
- Will-O-Wisp
- Substitute
- Hex
This set is tried and tested but feel free to do what ya like with it.
(Just realised I kept spelling Ninetales wrong!)

Ok now your Bellosom has gotta go. You need a Rain/fire counter, really badly. SlipperyDevil taught me this...

Kingdra @ Dragon Gem/Water Gem
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SAtk
Lonely Nature
- Outrage
- Dragon Dance
- Waterfall
- Ice Beam

Swift swim works well if rain as been used and Gemed Outrage/Waterfall blasts opponents. Its 4x resistance to fire helps on a switch. This works.

OK good choice; Venusaur Bad choice: Moveset + Item

Sun sweep Venu can be excellent. Notice the "can". You have two grass type moves. En reference to Marzipans set Giga Drain rather than solarbeam,its doesn't have to charge if someone sets up weather,so without sun so its safer. Also it acts as recovery so you can deal damage instead of Synthesis healing, allowing more room for attacking moves. This is something I often use...

Venusaur @ Life Orb/black sludge
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 Atk
Mild Nature
- Giga Drain
- Earthquake
- Hidden Power [Dark]
- Leech Seed

Dark you say? Don't like Psychic types? Thought not. Leech seed/giga drain recovers from life orb if that was your choice. Dunno if this will help but oh well give it a go.

Arcanine is not as common in sun as I thought it would be. I and I don't know why not. its pretty good. Infernape is a very good option though so I devised a set for both so you can choose...

Arcanine @ Leftovers
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Flare Blitz
- Wild Charge
- Morning Sun
- ExtremeSpeed

ok Infernape...

Infernape @ Payapa Berry/life orb
Trait: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Jolly Nature
- Fire Punch
- ThunderPunch
- U-turn
- Mach Punch

Tell me if this helps so I can use them...joke both are tested.

OK Jumpluff. Wait, Jumpluff? Well...I suppose sun jump can stall for a bit...but use Bliss from before. Its better. Even in sun.

Sceptile is a good pokemon but you need a sand counter pokemon. Ah! Garchomp! OK sand veil is not aloud but it can use rough skin. Aqua tail deals with water types and and various dragon moves deal with dragonite. Too bad it lacks Ice fang. But it would probably be overpowered.

Garchomp @ Dragon Gem
Trait: Rough Skin
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Earthquake
- Outrage
- Fire Fang
- Swords Dance


EDIT: I thought of another choice you could try. The swnine of Mamo.

Mamoswine (M) @ Choice Band/Choice Scarf

Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
•Ice Shard
•Stone Edge

Dragon/ground killer. Power ice shard beats many a foe inludeing Hippo and Tyran with appear frequently, along with Dragonite and MoxieMence.

Well thats it really. Hope me helped. Sorry no pics this time.

PX ;)
