Best answer

Scraggy and Clamperl are fine, although I prefer Rattled on Clamperl over Shell Armor. Any Speed boost is of help to outspeed other stat boosts.

If you want to join back up for the tournament though, you'll need to replace Scraggy. The perfect Pokemon to replace it is Timburr, whose priority should be of great help to you.

Dokkora (M) @ Flame Orb
Trait: Guts
EVs: 76 HP / 196 Atk / 236 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Mach Punch
- Drain Punch
- Payback
- Protect / Stone Edge


Blitzle I would remove. In its place I would add Elekid. It is superior to Blitzle in all the important ways. It even helps against Shroomish thanks to Vital Spirit.

Elekid (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Vital Spirit
EVs: 252 Atk / 236 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Cross Chop
- Ice Punch
- Fire Punch
- ThunderPunch


Litwick and Shroomish are fine.

However, you might want to replace Litwick with this mixed Houndour, seeing as you lack priority on this team.

Houndour (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 116 Atk / 200 SAtk / 160 Spd
Hasty Nature (+Spd, -Def)
- Sucker Punch
- Fire Blast
- Nitro Charge
- Hidden Power [Fighting]


Finally, let us remove that Natu. I don't think it does much for your team. Instead, let us add a nice Dwebble lead. I'm using it and loving it, seeing as it is the most reliable Spikes setter and one of the most reliable Stealth rock setters.

Ishizumai (M) @ Evolution Stone
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 196 HP / 76 Atk / 76 Def / 160 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
- Spikes
- X-Scissor
- Rock Blast


All in all the start of a good LC team, just a few minor changes and you should be good.
