Old Faithful (Typhlosion) (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Blaze
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Eruption
- Extrasensory
- Flamethrower
- Hidden Power [Grass]

My lead sweeper. Eruption is amazing STAB, HP grass and extrasensory is coverage and Flamethrower is when blaze comes around. Focus sash is for his frail defense and for a extra blazesweep. I put him as a lead so because with the commonness of s-rock and spikes that will power down eruption.

lolhai (Zangoose) (M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Toxic Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- X-Scissor
- Close Combat
- Crush Claw
- Shadow Claw

Toxic sweeper (I should've named him guitar in honor of one of my favorite creators :P) . Jolly nature gives him the speed he needs while toxic boost makes up for no adamant nature. Crush claw is STAB, shadow claw is ghost coverage, and X-scissor and close combat is extra coverage.

Luvdisc? (Alomomola) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Toxic
- Aqua Ring
- Wish
- Waterfall

My staller. I couldn't turn down its amazing HP and reliable recovery sources. Toxic....DURRR, wish is more reliable than pain split, and waterfall is incase of taunt. Regenerator is used when he (not she) is about to go down so I can escape and to hopefully stall out another turn.

only a fable (Clefable) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Cute Charm
EVs: 252 Def / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Stored Power
- Cosmic Power
- Stealth Rock
- Wish

Unchanged stored power tank. Cosmic power is to beef up those defenses, wish is reliable recovery, S-rock is s-rock, and after some cosmic powers I can hit hard with stored power. Cute charm plus being female gives me extra time to set up but should I give modest for extra power for stored power??

grrrrrrr (Crobat) (M) @ Shell Bell
Trait: Infiltrator
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Cross Poison
- Brave Bird
- U-turn
- Steel Wing

Unchanged sweeper. Many people use this as a scout but I use him for sweeping. Cross poison and brave bird is STAB U-turn is to hit hard and run away from threats, and steel wing is coverage. This guy also stops supporting from raining on the other side. Shell bell is a reliable recovery source after brave bird.

SPARATAAAAAA (Reuniclus) (M) @ Sitrus Berry
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 128 Def / 252 SAtk / 128 SDef
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)
- Energy Ball
- Thunder Wave
- Focus Blast
- Psyshock

From a paralovefuser to a tank. Psyshock is STAB, Focus blast and energy balls are coverage, and thunder wave is to do some crippling. Situs berry is to recover more at once in a pinch because 1 sitrus berry=5 leftovers. And regenerator is just one of my favorite abilities to use after the sitrus berry is used for even more recovery.

Best answer

Typhlosion

He looks fine, consider Hp Ice for dragons over Grass, but besides that you've got a pretty standard lead.

Zangoose

Needs Facade over Crush claw for the power boost from being poisoned, heavily consider Rock Slide over X-Scissor, I think that would benefit your team more, besides that you're good.

Alomomola

Use Careful over Calm, you're lowering his Attack stat, and his only attacking move is physical.
Also replace Aqua Ring for Protect, to support Wish ( Protect on turn 2 ) And Toxic ( Stalls further )

Clefable

First off, ( Just a note ). Wish isn't considered reliable recovery like Softboiled, Roost, Recovery, Etc.
Now onto the actual advice. Change the Ev's to 252 Def, 212 SP Def, and 44 Sp Atk. And you can keep your Bold nature. I highly reccomend changing Cute Charm with Magic Guard, because it's much more usefull. Replace Wish with Softboiled, for much more reliable healing. And consider replacing Stealth Rock with Hp Fighting / Focus Blast. It would seriously suck if you set up 6 Cosmic Powers and got walled out by a dark type.

Crobat

Note: Using U-Turn basically still makes him a scout.
I would use Bite over Cross Poison. Poison type moves are only super effective on Grass, and even after that still don't get amazing neutral coverage. Brave Bird already has heavy STAB handled. Bite on the other hand, has a pretty decent flinch rate, and can get you some quick Hp back if needed, while flinching your opponent. It compliments your battle style, so I figured you would like the trick. Other than that, it's pretty good.

Reuniclus

Change the 128 128 defenses to a 252 Hp. He has a beastly base Hp stat, making the boost worth more, and he has a Sitrus Berry, which recovers a percentage of the Hp, meaning more Hp = more recovery.
Consider Recovery over T-wave, because staying alive is more important normally, and with his already sluggish speed, on top of a speed reducing nature, even when something's paralyzed, he probably won't outspeed it.

Bite? I don't like having hax around but okay *realizes that crobat cant learn crunch* darnit
Bite actually works super great with Shell Bell, anything with a decent flinch rate does. It's free healing really.
