new baton-pass team

0 votes

this my new baton pass team, it has an emphasis on switch hazards (stealth rocks etc.) and stat boosting with baton pass for an epic sweeper! Any suggestions/help would be great.

Thanks,
YelloFello

It seems to me you have a lot of passers and set-up pokes. What you want on a Baton Pass team is Passers, and sweepers. Your current sweepers are Dragonite and Sawsbuck. Your Baton passers are Ninjask and Espeon. Firstly I would suggest Gorebyss > Espeon with Shell Smash. Secondly, Dragonite does not need DDance because he will be on the receiving end of a BPass. Go with Outrage, ESpeed, EQ, and Fire Punch. This gives you vast coverage, especially after 2 speed boosts and a Swords Dance from Ninjask. Oh btw, Leftovers > Starf Berry on Ninjask. For Sawsbuck go with 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP Jolly Nature and a physical moveset. Of course you might want to find an alternative sweeper to replace Sawsbuck. Rotom-W and Ferro are ok tho I don't know why you'd want them on a BPass team.
That's that for now.
I think ninjask could use leftovers,since substitute would keep reducing its health.So, give something else to Rotom-w,like choice scarf.Also,if forretress gets KOed, and ur opponent gets stealth rock up, ninjask is gonna lose half of its health there only
