teach Hariyama 4th move
Very cool team. I like when people go out of the box. Not just pick like 6 most overused pokemon lol.
just a question, why do people ask these kind of questions? your team is fine, i think people should enjoy the game more and think less about making the perfect team, you could do that before the save.
If people are stuck in the game and lose constantly then they sould probably ask a RMT.
Why Toxic Orb not Flame Orb?
I know that Toxic Poison starts with 1/16 then 2/16, but that's situational. There's a chance that you might want to stay with it longer than 3 turns
Burned make the Attack stat lower, and because hariyama is a close-range, he will rely to the Attack stat, toxic orb is better because poison wont change hariyama's stat
Guts negates the attack halve from burn
uh shxatoap, u've coornered me, but i dont know if guts really helped negate the effect because i never try it, i dont like hariyama...

Best answer

Metang is a lead, so Your moveset is fine except for Zen Headbutt. Replace it with Ice Punch because two STABs is not really important in Battles.

Slowbro@Leftovers

  • Yawn
  • Slack Off
  • Surf
  • Ice Beam/Psyshock

Gallade is fine as well, But your HP EVs should be higher because you will Substitute a lot and you will easily fall to many things because of that.

Durant wants to sweep, so that EV spread is terrible. Full Attack and Speed with this Moveset

  • Iron Defense/Hone Claws
  • Iron Head
  • X-Scissor
  • Rock Slide/Stone Edge

Any reason for Low Sweep, Get This set

  • Fake Out
  • Aerial Ace
  • Double Hit
  • U-Turn/Fury Swipes

Hariyama

  • Protect
  • Payback
  • Earthquake
  • Close Combat

Fake Out is better on Hariyama as it will provide free damage on the opponent
