I think your team is too attack based I would recommend replacing either the cacturne or the liepard with umbreon so you have a wall
Yes i now. But it´s hard to find a wall that is dark type. And the best pokemon i found was drapion and he is better like a tank(that i use him to)
Dark walls are hard to come by but there is one that I forgot about that is really good, why dont you try a scrafty that's moveset is built around bulk up and drain punch if you bulk up once or twice with it and have it use drain punch while holding a big root, it can be a seriously good wall/tank
i agree with warney

Best answer

Replace Liepard or Zoroark (both are very frail) with Scrafty or Umbreon
Try one of these:


Scrafty (M) @ Big Root
Nature: Brave (+Atk, -Spd)
Trait: Shed Skin

EV Spread:
252 Atk
128 Def
128 SpDef

  • Bulk Up
  • Drain Punch
  • Rock Slide
  • Payback


Umbreon (M) @ Leftovers
Nature: Sassy (+SpDef, -Spd)
Trait: Synchronize

EV Spread:
100 HP
10 Atk
148 Def
252 SpDef

  • Curse
  • Payback
  • Confuse Ray/ Toxic
  • Wish

Other Tips:

Give Zoroark a Focus Sash instead. It will not last too long to utilize Lefties.

Teach Drapion Swords Dance instead of Acupressure. That type of boosting is too risky.
