Best answer

For Crawdaunt I would change your item to an Expert belt or Muscle Band. Gradual healing is super nice, but in the long run having that extra damage is going to be nicer.

On Munchlax, Fire Punch is a much more solid coverage choice in comparison to Earthquake here. It's much more reliable ( especially when dealing with things like Misdreavous )

As for Gallade, I think running a Salac berry would be an awesome way for this guy to get some more sweeps. Substitute ( if used enough ) will eventually get you down to low health, or taking hits well after Bulk Up. Then after Salac berry gives you that boosted speed, you can start getting into more secure HP range with Drain Punch.

I see why you're running Knock Off on Mandibuzz, ( lots of RU eviolite abusers ) but using Fly as a little bit of damage and a great way to stall would benefit you a bit more.

Vileplume Is good.

And last but not least, I think Extrasensory would be a better coverage choice than Focus Blast on your Typhlosion. ( And that 70% accuracy really gets to hurting after a while.. )

Other than that.. great team. I had lots of fun testing it out on PO.

Vileplume can't learn Sludge Wave.... Also, I'll be keeping Knock Off on Mandibuzz, cause Eviolite users annoy me.
10% can you come on chat?
Sorry for the epic fail there, it was late.. XD
Also, Salac Berry makes a team DW OU.
