Landorus Virizion Heatran

Magnezone Sharpedo Slowbro

Okay, this team was mainly built around Sharpedo, and Landorus. I'm open to ALL suggestions, and have access to DW abilities.


Sharpedo
@Life Orb
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Protect - Waterfall - Crunch - Ice Fang

My main sweeper, try to use the other pokemon to get rid.of pokemon who threaten Sharpedo, then bring Sharpedo in and bring the Caos.

Virizion
@Leftovers
Trait: Justified
EVs: 104 Atk / 152 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Work Up - Giga Drain - Close Combat - Hidden Power [Ice]

Pretty self-explanitory.

Heatran
@Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 248 HP / 100 SpD / 160 Spe
Calm Nature
- Stealth Rock - Lava Plume - Toxic - Roar

Specially Def. Bulky, needed someone to set up rocks and take the fire type attacks aimed at Magnezone / Virizon. Also, Air Balloon or Leftys?

Landorus
@Choice Scarf
Trait: Sand Force
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpA
Naive Nature
- U-Turn - Earthquake - Stone Edge - Hidden Power [Ice]

Scarfed Landorus will put a whole in most people's team. Also is a little surprise factor from the standard CB Landorus

Magnezone
@Leftovers
Trait: Magnet Pull
EVs: 36 HP / 252 SpA / 220 Spe
Def Modest Nature
- Magnet Rise - Flash Cannon - Thunderbolt ~ Hidden Power [Water]

I'm running HP Water instead of fire or ice, because HP water hits my Ground weakness, AND Fire weakness. Idk weather to run Air balloon in Magnezone, or Heatran.

Slowbro
@Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
- Psychic - Scald - Ice Beam - Slack Off

I was thinking having Eviolite on Slowbro because it's so defensivly bulky it would just add to it. + i have the Slack Off & Regenerator to bring my health back up to 100%

(I also get the sense i'm running to many HP Ice's, if you have a suggestions on if i should change them around it would be much appreciated. Thank for your time and suggestions. :7)

Scarfed Landorus is standard, not the Choice Banded set.
Also on Magnezone, Thunderbolt hits Fire types harder than HP Water.

Sharpedo @ Life Orb
Speed Boost
Naive Nature
252 Atk 88 Def 84 SpD 88 Spe
Protect Crunch Waterfall Ice Fang

Because of speed boost, you don't really need to put so many EV's in Speed. The defensive EV's help him live a bit longer than normal, hopefully pulling off enough more protects to out speed other threats.

Virizion @ Life Orb
Justified
Naive Nature
120 Atk 136 SpA 252 Spe
Work Up Giga Drain Close Combat HP Ice

Straightforward as you said, but a little take that I use. Ev's are more equally spread and Naive nature takes from Virizi's already stellar SpD stat, because it is frail on the physical def, and needs it as much as possible. After a work up, it's Atk hits 367 and SpA hits 375.

Heatran @ Leftovers
Flash Fire
Calm Nature
248 HP 100 SpD 160 Spe
Stealth Rock Lava Plume Toxic Protect

Switch in moves and item. Use protect to scout for a potential earthquake, and balloon is much too obvious. Very straightforward.

Landorus @ Choice Scarf
Sand Force
Naive Nature
252 Atk 252 Spe 4 SpA
U-Turn Earthquake Stone Edge HP Ice

Nothing wrong. :P

Magnezone @ Leftovers
Magnet Pull
Modest Nature
36 HP 252 SpA 220 Spe

Sunny Day/Magnet Rise Flash Cannon Thunderbolt HP Fire

HP Fire for steels. Your team is walled by steels rather well, barring Landorus. If you feel that Steels are giving you way too much trouble, run Sunny Day. Helps get that extra boost on HP Fire, and is helpful when encountering pokes such as Specially Defensive Skarmory. Other than that, Magnet Rise is always an option.

Slowbro @ Leftovers
Regenerator
Bold Nature
248 HP 244 Def 16 SpA

Psyshock Scald Slack Off Toxic

Toxic is for other Slowbros, or other bulky threats that you want status'd. BTW, Slowbro is an evolution of Slowpoke, so it cannot utilize Eviolite. Other than that, just a little switch around of the EV's. Psyshock also combats Roserade's pitiful defense, which is a Pokemon that has the power to put a dent into Slowbro.

Okay first of all thank you for these suggestions. One problem that i forgot to edit in as i was testing this team was Life Orb Virizon, It's true that after 1 Work Up his Att and Sp. Att stats are boss, but i don't find the extra life orb boost worth the damage cost. It dies rather quickly, and i would like to have it alive more so i could wall Sp. Att'ers.
Trust me, it needs it. I have personal experiance of it WITH life orb, and then a poke still lives with a smidgeon. So trust me on this one, it needs it. And for survivability, as a general rule it is a late game sweeper, so try not to get too attached to it being alive for long. Sometimes it is better to let it get as much damage as possible for a safe switch.
Yes life orb is a good reason with virizion, it can take good hits with good defs.
