Regirock @ Leftovers

Trait: Clear Body

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Stealth Rock
  • Stone Edge
  • Hammer Arm
  • Ice Punch

Stealth Rocks helps landing KOs, Stone Edge is STAB good move.
Hammer Arm and Ice Punch are good coverage.


Scolipede (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Swarm

EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spe

Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SAtk)

  • Swords Dance
  • Megahorn
  • Earthquake
  • Rock Slide

Swords dance gives a very nice attack boost. Megahorn is extremely powerful STAB and Eearthquake and Rock Slide gives good coverage.


Misdreavus (F) @ Eviolite

Trait: Levitate

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe

Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)

  • Nasty Plot
  • Taunt
  • Shadow Ball
  • Thunderbolt

A lil' mini Mismagius :)
Nasty Plot gives a nice sp atk boost, taunt stops annoying status etc.
Shadow Ball is very nice STAB, Thunderbolt for extra coverage.
I'm thinking about replacing Thunderbolt with Psychic because of Poison types in NU so lemme know what you think.


Braviary (M) @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Sheer Force

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Brave Bird
  • Superpower
  • Rock Slide
  • U-turn

Brave Bird is strong STAB. The one who brave birds the most wins the battle, right?
Superpower gives good coverage alongside Bravebirdeverythinginsight.
Rock Slide cuz pro? maybe Return is better.
U-turn allows switching with damage and scouting.


Cacturne (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Water Absorb

EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spe

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Swords Dance
  • Seed Bomb
  • Sucker Punch
  • Low Kick

Swords Dance gives a nice attack boost.
Seed bomb is STAB. Sucker Punch STAB and priority.
Low kick cuz steel types.


Butterfree (F) @ Life Orb

Trait: Compoundeyes

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Quiver Dance
  • Bug Buzz
  • Giga Drain
  • Sleep Powder

Butterfree actually deserves Quiver Dance.
Quiver Dance boosts Sp.atk Sp.def and speed which is extremely nice, Bug Buzz is very good STAB.
Giga Drain is coverage and Hidden Power Electric because flying types.

Scolipede got moved to RU a few weeks ago maybe even two months ago.


Bawstang (Metang) @ Eviolite

Trait: Clear Body

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpD)

  • Hone Claws
  • Meteor Mash
  • DynamicPunch
  • Zen Headbutt

Hone Claws boost boosts accuracy for all the moves as well as attack.
Meteor Mash is good STAB, DynamicPunch punishes pesky Normal types and has a very nice side effect.
Zen Headbutt takes care of Poison types and is STAB.

Best answer

Regirock

I hate starting this way, but it looks really good! Can't see any changes for it.
Awasome Regirock u got der :3

Scolipede

I would replace with...

Leafeon

Leafeon (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Leaf Guard
EVs: 5 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Leaf Blade
- X-Scissor
- Dig / Retaliate

A solid replacement for something that sets up S-dance and sweeps.
Swords Dance sky rockets Leafeon's attack, ( 319 unboosted, 638 after just one Swords Dance )
While Leafeon has the bulk to set it up, just try to set up on a physical foe, rather than a special one.
Leaf Blade is STAB. Packing 90 power and a high crit rate.
X-scissor is coverage, hits annoying grass types resisting your Leaf Blade, namely other Leafeons.
Dig / Retaliate is really a filler spot. While Retaliate can hit things that Leaf Blade is not very effective on, and X-scissor is neutral on for a revenge kill, Dig offers a lot of coverage. Although, Dig is a really risky choice. Whatever you really want to use.

Misdreavous

Psychic is definitely going to be the better choice der.
Calm Mind variant is always something to be looking at, due to Evoilite bulk.
But what you have is still amazing.

Braviary

Looks great.

Cacturne

I really don't see it complimenting your team very much.
Swords Dance + Sucker Punch is a great fan favorite and all, but with you having 4 physical 2 special, and Cacturne not providing much support... I would suggest a replacement.
That replacement being...

Lunatone

Lunatone @ Light Clay
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 160 Def / 96 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Reflect
- Light Screen
- Psychic
- Hypnosis

This is my suggested replacement.
Psychic gives that pure special force you're lacking, although Lunatone doesn't have too much to back it up in the Sp atk department. Reflect and Light Screen gives various support ( Light Screen for Regirock and Leafeon, Reflect for Butterfree and Misdreavous ) While Hypnosis can help you walk into a free switch to set up ( Stealth Rocks with Regirock, Swords dance with Leafeon, or Nasty Plot with Misdreavous ). So this is what I think would benefit your team the most. Try it out.

Butterfree

Ohaider :3

Okay, I've just tried one match with these suggs so far.
Leafeon: Both Dig and Retaliate are unnapealing, so I tried Baton Pass and it actually worked well, so I'm happy about that.
Misdreavus: Calm Mind is considerable.
Cacturne: Sucker Punch as you know has priority, which is very important to have in teams.
Also Water Absorb helps Regirock.
I tried Lunatone and it was eh. Either way, I think Metang would be a much better Dual Screener than Lunatone and that's what I'll be using for Dual Ser if I'm going to use one.
Bawstang probably has better chances of getten' in to the team than Luna.
Bawstang works too, I was mainly pointing out that screens would help the team.
I didn't know you could have 5 HP.
