EDIT: If anyone has any other suggestions, feel free to answer.


Mr. Miyagi (Torkoal) (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: White Smoke
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Stealth Rock
  • Overheat
  • Yawn
  • Rapid Spin

My lead. He serves as my Stealth Rocker, and he spins. He can force switches with Yawn, and Overheat takes out common steel types, such as Ferrothorn, Skarmory, and Forretress.

Genocide (Gyarados) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Moxie
EVs: 4HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Waterfall
  • Dragon Dance
  • Ice Fang
  • Earthquake

My Dragon Dancer physical Sweeper. Once he gets a D Dance or two off, he'll be fast enough to start sweeping. Moxie gives him +1 Attack stage every KO. Waterfall is for STAB, and the Ground + Ice combo for coverage.

ERROR 404 (Porygon2) @ Eviolite
Trait: Trace
EVs: 68 HP / 128 Def / 60 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Recover
  • Toxic
  • Thunderbolt
  • Ice Beam

My Special Wall, Porygon2. He's sort of mixed, as he can take a pretty good physical beating as well. With Recover and Toxic, he stalls awesomely, and the bolt-beam combo for maximum coverage as well. Eviolite makes his defenses go through the roof.

Gliscor (Gliscor) (M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 HP / 60 Atk / 196 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Protect
  • Swords Dance
  • Ice Fang
  • Earthquake

My Tanky Attack wall thing. Protect stalls his opponent while he heals up with Toxic Orb. 196 EVs in defense give him enough durability to survive most physical attacks that aren't ice type. Swords Dance is used when I know I'll outspeed the next turn and survive the first hit, or for boosting on switches.

Marluxia (Roserade) (M) @ Choice Specs
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 4HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Extrasensory
  • Energy Ball
  • Sludge Bomb
  • Hidden Power [Fire]

My Special Sweeper. Specs allow him to 1 shot a lot of pokemon. Extrasensory provides nice coverage along with HP Fire, and Energy Ball and Sludge Bomb are for STAB.

Conkelderp (Conkeldurr) (M) @ Flame Orb
Trait: Guts
EVs: 60 HP / 252 Atk / 196 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Drain Punch
  • Mach Punch
  • Stone Edge
  • Payback

My other physical tanky thing, lol. With Guts and Flame Orb, he does MASSIVE damage. He provides fighting, dark, and rock type coverage for my team, and he can sustain himself with drain punch.

Torkoal

It's hard to give suggestions here, but I'm actually going to say to not lead with him, as he's your spinner having him in the back waiting out for the hazards to be set before he spins would be useful.
And give him Air Balloon, partly for ground resistance, mainly because as a spinner he's going to be switching into hazards, and taking spikes and t-spikes damage sucks.
Having that late game ( Not too late though xD ) rocks and spins can prove VERY useful.

Gyarados

Yep, here's your perfect Gyarados! Unless you're really trying to think out of the box, this will do you fine for any sweeping ( That you can set up in ) chance you get.

Porygon2

I like your EV spread! And that's all I can really say ^^
Rain has became very common in the OU meta game, so using Thunder > Thunderbolt is always an option, especially considering the fact that if he misses he isn't completely screwed.

Gliscor

What you have is fine, but I would suggest using Fling instead of Swords Dance here, it's hard to set up with a pokemon that has a 4X weakness, that normally will be switched on while using protect.
Fling will let you do a little bit of damage, while going ahead and poisoning your opponent.
Or, replace it with roost! That healing is awesome, but personally switching protect for Roost also works well. No matter what you do, using Roost somewhere in there is a good idea.
Canceling out Ice Fang for Thief and having the Fling + Thief combo is optional, but I think that Roost, Ice Fang, Earthquake, Toxic / Fling / Swords Dance would do you the best.

Roserade

I would change his ability to Technician and screw around with his IV's until his HP Fire is at 59 or 60 power. Besides that, looks great.

Conkeldurr

Amazing, I prefer Adamant here, so if you haven't tried it. Give that a shot.
But besides that, looks great.
