  • Firstly the main problem I see with this would be the EV spread currently your spread cannot out speed standard Alomomola which is a pain. So I suggest you run 132 HP / 252 SAtk / 124 Spd sure this may take away from some of your bulk, but like your situation with me, you were low on HP and I out sped and killed with scald. Now you don't have that problem.

252SpAtk Eelektross (+SAtk) Giga Drain vs 252HP/0SpDef Alomomola (Neutral): 54% - 64% (290 - 342 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.

252SpAtk Eelektross (+SAtk) Volt Switch vs 252HP/0SpDef Alomomola (Neutral): 76% - 89% (408 - 480 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.


  • Mawile I feel just isn't adding anything significant to your team. Sure it's immune to poison, but that's why you have a Roselia. Sure it has intimidate, but the common fighting type moves are still SE to it. So I suggest you use standard Regirock (Stealth Rocks, Drain Punch, Stone Edge, Thunder Wave) Regirock will provide much more needed support to your team with Thunder Wave because you have a Choice Band Sawk who likes things to be slower than him so he can wreck. Drain Punch is for offensive presence and recovery obviously, Stone Edge is for Braviary & Swellow. Thunder Wave is for anything else. It also has great synergy with Roselia.

  • Next it's time to get rid of this guy, IMO if you're going to use one of the monkeys it needs too be a Sub-Nasty Plot set. But I have something else in mind for this spot. I think that Rain Dance Ludicolo would be a good contender for this spot. This thing just wrecks team no question.

All-in-All, this was all I could really find wrong with the team, although I find Sdef Roselia to be a bit of a disappointment when it comes down to it, and would prefer maybe an offensive spiker set with some bulk from Eviolite, but that's personal preference. And maybe even try Knock Off > Stone Edge on Sawk just to piss off Alomomola, Musharna, Tangela, Misdreavus, etc. It will really cripple the, now that they have to think about how they bring it in on a attack. You asked me to rate after our battle and there it is, hopefully this will help your team out.

Don't "try" Knock Off > Stone Edge, DO IT. I always use it and it's great.
