Ok, the Pokemon choice was taken with advice from Speed Freak (thanks, pal)!

SawsbuckWinter

Sawsbuck (M) @ Big Root
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Horn Leech
  • Wild Charge
  • Jump Kick
  • Double-Edge

Ok, so Sawsbuck... Hey buddy, you remind me of Rudolph! Horn Leech is for healing all the recoil damage from the other moves. Big Root is for gaining even more life, so... Yeah.

Dunsparce

Dunsparce (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Body Slam
  • Coil
  • Zen Headbutt
  • Iron Tail

Meh, Dunsparce. I don't get what you're supposed to be. So ugly i understand that you're NU. Don't worry pal, i don't judge Pokemon by their beauty... Body Slam has 60% chance to paralyse the opponent (Yay!). With Coil, which raises his Defense, Attack and Accuracy, Body Slam is almost sure to hit it's target. Zen Headbutt is for those annoying Fighting types that are like " Seismic Toss, beyotch " and Iron Tail has the same purpose as Body Slam.

Miltank

Miltank (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 78 HP/ 214 Atk/ 216 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Curse
  • Body Slam
  • Earthquake
  • Zen Headbutt

Miltank!! I love milk, so i love Miltank. This Pokemon is a beast! Curse is for pumping up it's other moves. Body Slam is for the good chance of paralysing the foe and Earthquake is a naturally strong move. Zen Headbutt is for Fighting types that try to kill that poor innocent cow.

Linoone

Linoone (M) @ Sitrus Berry
Trait: Gluttony
EVs: 252 Atk/ 4 Def/ 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Belly Drum
  • ExtremeSpeed
  • Shadow Claw
  • Brick Break

Ok... I chose Linoone for a combo i never heard of before that Speed Freak told me about. Use Belly Drum and then use ExtremeSpeed for huge attacks with priority. Brick Break is for those annoying Rock and Steel types that Normal attacks don't do much damage and plus, i can break walls! Awesome! Shadow Claw is for Ghost coverage, since Linoone didn't have any before.

Lopunny

Lopunny (F) @ Flame Orb
Trait: Klutz
EVs: 4 Def/ 252 SDef/ 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd,-SAtk)

  • Switcheroo
  • Magic Coat
  • Bounce
  • Encore

Lopunny, the bouncing Bunny that murdered Santa Claus! :3 Switcheroo is for giving the foe the Flame Orb and burning it. If the attack misses or something like that, Lopunny's ability Klutz is there to save you. Magic Coat is for mirroring Status attacks (bye bye Paralyse!) and Bounce is it's signature attack, so... Normally, i never take off a Pokemon's signature attack, except if the attack is horrible. In this case, it isn't! Encore is to annoy the foe and waste time so the Flame Orb could do it's job more easily.

Bibarel

Bibarel (M) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Simple
EVs: 4HP/ 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Charge Beam
  • Ice Beam
  • Surf
  • Thunder Wave

Bibarel, the Beaver Pokemon! Charge Beam is a good Electric attack and has a good chance to raise your Special Attack. In fact, it has 70% chances to raise it. Ice Beam is for coverage against Grass types and Surf is for, as usual, awesome STAB. Thunder Wave is to paralyse (DUH) so Bibarel won't get hit much.

This is all for my Mono-Normal NU team. A lot of thanks to Speed Freak, who answered ALL my questions on the chat and other users that also correctly answered my questions. Feel free to change anything on this team, even the Pokemon. I can take any kind of critics, except getting insulted for no valuable reason. Thank you in advance!

Best answer


Sawsbuck (M) @ Big Root/Life-orb
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd,-SAtk)

  • Horn Leech
  • Wild Charge/Nature-power
  • Jump Kick/Nature-power
  • Return

Replace either Wild-charge or Jump-kick for Nature-power for in PO and Wi-fi it becomes EARTHQUAKE!! Jolly is necessary without Sun support. You may want to use Life-orb for some extra power which can be healed off with Horn-leech.



Dunsparce (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 100 HP/ 252 Atk/ 158 S.Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Body Slam
  • Coil
  • Zen Headbutt
  • Earthquake

These EVs are better with a Coil set, also Earthquake provides much better coverage on this set. Even with that 60% Defense lowering chance with Iron-tail, Earthquake is still better.



Girafarig (F) @ Life-orb
Trait: Sap-sipper(Just for the type immunity)
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp
Timid Nature (+Spd,-Atk)

  • Psyshock
  • Shadow-ball
  • Thunderbolt
  • Hidden-power (Fighting)

You have too many Physical Attackers. So throw in a Special attacker.



Linoone (M) @ Sitrus Berry
Trait: Gluttony
EVs: 252 Atk/ 4 Def/ 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd,-SAtk)

  • Belly Drum
  • ExtremeSpeed
  • Shadow Claw
  • Brick Break

You need the extra speed with Jolly.



Lopunny (F) @ Flame Orb
Trait: Klutz
EVs: 4 Def/ 252 SDef/ 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd,-SAtk)

  • Switcheroo
  • Magic Coat
  • Bounce/Return
  • Encore

You do not really need Bounce as you are already burning them, so I suggest Return for a hard hitting move but Bounce is fine.



Bibarel (M) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Simple
EVs: 4HP/ 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd
Timid (+Spd,-Atk)

  • Charge Beam
  • Ice Beam
  • Surf/Scald
  • Thunder Wave

You need the Timid nature with Bibarel. Consider Scald for the Burn chance on Pokemon you can not Paraylze.

Thanks alot for the answer SF. Also, didn't know that Girafarig was NU. xD
No problem :) I am pretty sure he is, I do not read smogon tiers, if he is not tell me so I can recommend another Pokemon.
I always thought that Girafarig was just pure Psychic type. lol.
Checked da smog, he's definitely still NU.
