gengar-toxic,mean look,dastiny bond,curse

spiritomb-hypnosis pain split\nasty plot\torment dream eater confuse ray (thanks pokemon black)

missmagius-mean look perish song curse deseny bond (problem is user is not asleep )

after all of this comes out metagross to counter the next pokemon

metagross-magnet rise,explosion(as last resort) ,earthquake,meteor mash

then arcanine comes out to sweep

arcanine-sunnyday,flare blitz,morning sun,solarbeam

torttera will come out to counter all arcanines weaknesses

torttera-seed bomb,stone edge,earthquake,synthisis

Spiritomb set:
Pain Split/Nasty Plot/Torment

I think that Gengar is bad. You should put attacking moves on him - he has great SAtt and Spe

Erhem, well, the Movesets are good, but I have a problem with your leading Gengar - somehow I can't see it doing that good as a lead. Forretress can be really good as a lead, way better than Gengar. If you want it, an awesome moveset would be:

-Rapid Spin
-Stealth Rock
-Toxic Spikes

Another good lead is Swampert which is more of an attacker, unlike Forretress. A good moveset would be:

-Stealth Rock
-Ice Punch

The theme with this moveset is to set Stealth Rock, and either to switch or to battle the foe, depending on typing.

The other pokemon are great, good job! You covered many of the used types on Wifi battling. About your problem with your Kingdra's last move, I would first switch Muddy Water for Surf because Muddy Water is inaccurate. I would put Signal Beam for Psychic-types and Dark-types.

Well all your pokemon are good pokemon but you're just using them in the wrong way. My suggestions

Lead With Metagross

Meta@Focus Sash or Occa Berry
-Stealth Rock
-Meteor Mash
-Bullet Punch

The point of meta is to get in, set up rock, pwn anything else it can with meteor mas and die. I know that sounds pretty bad, but Leadgross can destroy teams.

Gengar@Life Orb
-Shadow Ball
-Hidden Power[Ice]
-Focus Blast

Pretty self-explanatory use that ridiculous Sp. Attack and good speed to sweep.

Torterra@Leftovers [May want to replace]
-Wood Hammer
-Stone Edge

Torterra doesnt really have the stats to survive in OU especially with that 4x weakness to Ice.

Kingdra@Life Orb
-Rain Dance or Dragon Dance (Personal preference)
-Ice Beam

The difference between rain dance and Dragon Dance is a simple one, rain will double your speed automatically and dragon dance will increase your attack and speed.

Arcanine@Choice Band [Again consider replacing]
-Flare Blitz
-Thunder Fang
-Iron Head

There's nothing wrong with arcanine it's just that there are so many better options out there. I'm talking, of course about scizor and Infernape which both out class it as a revenge killer and physical sweeper respectively.

electivire@Life Orb or Expert Belt
-Thunder Punch
-Cross Chop
-Ice Punch

Electivire is a solid physical sweeper and can shred through teams if you can get it to walk into an electric attack.

Overall Your team has no walls. A couple of your pokemon are either UU or just carbon copies of better pokemon.

To many ghost types chose spiritomb and replase electivire with magnazone kingdra with salamance arcinine with magmorter msmagius with walrang and herracross with gangar so it would be

1- Spiritomb
6- herracross

  • I hope I helped :)
