I'm not the best with EV spreads, so I'd like to know what I could do to make this team better. All support is appreciated. So far this team has won me about an average of 5/6 battles. I feel as if my main weakness is a team revolved around a Blissey/Chansey

Pretty solid, I can't find much to comment on. Shouldn't your Conk or Gliscor stop Chansey/Blissey from doing anything worthwhile already? I think those aren't big problems for your team. Did you think about opposing Talonflame, even Gliscor might appreciate some Stealth Rock help.
Alright, I'm gonna rate this and see if I can help you out.

To maximize your team's potential, we'll change a few things around. Changes will be in bold.

Conkeldurr @ Flame Orb
Ability: Guts
EVs: 116 HP / 192 Atk / 200 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Drain Punch
- Ice Punch
- Mach Punch
- Knock Off

Interesting EV spread. Is there anything in particular that you're trying to survive with the spread you have? If not, I would recommend that you max HP and Attack and dump the rest into Speed to speedcreep other Conkeldurr. As for his moveset, Ice Punch would give you better coverage than Thunder Punch and Knock Off would probably be more useful than Poison Jab, although I can see where you're going there. I like the Flame Orb/Guts thing you've got going on.


enter image description here

Pinsir (M) @ Pinsirite
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Return
- Earthquake
- Quick Attack
- Swords Dance

I love Mega Pinsir-- it wrecks. Your EV spread is kinda weird, though. You need Mega Pinsir to be fast, and no amount of investment in its HP will make it bulky, so max its Speed instead. You also seem to be forgetting that you've got an extra four EVs after you max two stats, so dump those remaining EVs into HP. To help him outspeed as much as possible, run Jolly over Adamant. I can understand why you've got X-Scissor, but it's not that good for coverage in OU. Return has better power and better coverage.


enter image description here

Tyranitar @ Assault Vest
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Stone Edge
- Fire Punch
- Earthquake
- Crunch

Assault Vest Tyranitar is certainly a force to be reckoned with. I don't quite understand your EV spread here-- anything in particular you're trying to survive? Try a set with maxed HP and Attack with the rest in Special Defense. You don't need to invest in SDef so much because:
a) Tyranitar's SDef is naturally high
b) You're running Assault Vest, and
c) The sandstorm doubles Rock-types' SDef.

You can also run Adamant over Careful for more power. Also, I would be careful about using Tyranitar because your other Pokemon take damage from the sandstorm. It should be fine as long as you run a 'mon or two that's immune to the damage. We'll work on that some. Also, Assault Vest Tyranitar helps you team out because it can take Ice and Fire hits to the face for your other members.


Greninja is a cool Pokemon, but you need a powerful special attacker that won't take sandstorm damage.

enter image description here

Alakazam @ Focus Sash
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Calm Mind
- Psyshock
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball

With this set, you can get a guaranteed Calm Mind setup and then wreck everything. Psyshock over Psychic so you can deceive a special defender that might try to wall it. Focus Blast gets great coverage and Shadow Ball helps you get rid of Ghost-type threats.


Although Togekiss can be a useful Defogger, I recommend Latios for more offensive potential.

enter image description here

Latios @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Dragon Pulse
- Psyshock
- Roost
- Defog

Here you can get a lot of damage in while still having the support of Defog. You're also likely to last awhile longer than a specs Latios since you have Roost. The reason I recommend Latios over Togekiss is because I think your team could use more special attacking force and Togekiss works better as a staller than a special threat.


Gliscor is a useful physical tank, but you've got a problem on your team-- ICE. His 4x weakness to that doesn't help any, and you could use a support slot. So I've got an idea for another 'mon that still won't take sandstorm damage and isn't weak to Ice:

enter image description here

Skarmory @ Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Atk
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Whirlwind
- Roost
- Brave Bird

This guy can give you some Stealth Rock support, which could really come in handy. He can also phase with Whirlwind and keep things from setting up on him while he tanks. Roost is to restore his HP and Brave Bird allows him to do some damage (especially if he gets Taunted).



I hope this helps you out!
