Looks awesome ;o lol
Your missing 4 evs on Volcarona. :3
Your two main attackers are special so maybe replace one? Ionnu. xD
Yeah lol those 4 are going to hp on volc. I'm thinking of replacing volcarona with a physical sweeper mostly cause I can't get stealth rock off the field fast enough. What's a good suggestion?
Looks quite nice, but one main problem is that you currently have three electric weaknesses and only one electric resistance. My suggestion is to scrap jellicent and starmie in favor of Tentacruel, who thanks to its good defenses and rain dish is a great wall under rain. It also has Rapid Spin, so it can perform both Jellicent's and Starmie's roles (except spinblocking). Tentacruel is also a much sturdier and more reliable user of Rapid Spin than Starmie. This will also give you room for a physical attacker. Just my opinion do what you think is best. Hope this helps :)
Good point but a defensive jellicent-ferrothorn core is hard to get rid of. Maybe I'll take out starmie.
I took both of ur suggestions and tweaked my team a little. hows this?
