EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SpAtk

Thunderbolt is incase my attack gets lowered, good to have a backup. Ice Punch is for the ground types. Cross Chop has good attack, and provides type coverage.

Trait: Immunity / Thick Fat
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 SpDef
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Earthquake
- Body Slam
- Zen Headbutt
- Curse

Earthquake is for the massive attack. Body Slam is STAB and a chance to paralyze. Zen Headbutt is fighting type coverage. Curse is to give it extra power plus defensive bulk.

Aggron @ ???
Trait: Rock Head
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Def
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Double Edge
- Earthquake
- Aqua Tail
- Aerial Ace

Earthquake is a nice STAB. Aqua Tail covers ground and fire types. Aerial Ace won't miss and fighting coverage.

Blissey @ ???
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 SpAtk / 252 HP
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Stealth Rock / Toxic
- Softboiled
- Charge Beam
- Shadow Ball / Hyper Beam (STAB)

Softboiled is to heal any damage taken. Charge Beam will always boost SpAtk with Serene Grace. Shadow Ball for ghost type coverage or Hyper Beam for STAB and it gets the SpAtk boost from Charge Beam.


Not really sure how good it is as I have never Wi-Fi battled before, but I would like to keep this team, but I'm welcome to any changes if it could improve my stance. (It would be nice to like the pokemon recommended though.)

Wish > Softboiled, Toxic > Shadow Ball/Hyper Beam
so use it as a staller instead? That's pretty cool! I can't get wish it's event only isn't it?
Yep. Blissey's massive Special Defense make it one of the best stallers out there.
Yeah, you can't get Wish without the Event, so i guess you'll have to go with Softboiled.
BTW, if you use online simulators, such and Pokemon Showdown! you can use any Pokemon, with any possible move.
I chose it because I battled one recently and it crippled my team alone, so I thought I'd give it a try! Ooo that sounds pretty cool I'll check that out! Do you reckon the other pokemon are alright? Thankyou for the help by the way, much appreciated!
I don't suggest using hyper beam unless you want to have to switch every other turn. The resting turn is really not worth it. So go with shadow ball or switch to seismic toss.
