hydreigon (M) @ power band- mixed sweeper
EVs- 252 attack/252 sp attack/4 speed
Nature- rash(+ sp attack,- sp defence)
Ability- levitate
Moves-
- dark pulse- stab
- outrage- stab
- fire blast- covers ice & bug weaknesses
- surf- coverage & has neutral damage against fighting weakness
(i might switch surf for earthquake or fly based on what I think works best)

Hydreigon is my backup & best pokemon. He is mainly to cover many types & destroy pokemon that are not fighting.


Leavanny (M) @ focus sash- physical sweeper
EVs- 1o8 hp/252 attack/152 speed
Nature- adamant
Ability- swarm
Moves-
- x- scissor- stab
- leaf blade- stab, high crit ratio
- return- neutral damage to fire & flying & other weaknesses
- swords dance

Leavanny is my main physical sweeper that hits hard & fast.


Carracosta (M) @ water gem - irritating physical wall/tank
EVs- 1o8 hp/2oo attack/2oo defence
Nature- impish
Ability- sturdy
Moves-
- aqua tail- stab
- earthquake- covers lots of types & ground/electric weaknesses
- toxic- typicall wall move, poison & steel types that are unaffected by this are covered by earthquake
- curse- best move to use on a physical tank (not ghosts though for obvious reasons)

He is my main tank. He uses toxic on pokemon that are able to be affected by it, & then curses, & then sweeps


Chandelure (F) @ ghost gem - special tank
EVs- 1o8 hp/2oo sp attack/2oo sp defence
Nature- modest
Ability- flash fire
Moves-
- shadow ball- stab & covers ghost weakness
- Fire blast- stab
- energy ball- covers most of it's fire part's weaknesses
- calm mind- special version of curse, minus the lowering speed part

My main special tank. He has 3 immunities with flash fire & with chandelure's sp attack he is a monster.


Klinklank (-) @ focus band - fast wall/supporter
EVs- 152 hp/52 attack/252 defence/56 speed
Nature- impish
Ability- minus
Moves-
- gear grind- good move with stab for finish-offs & taunters
- shift gear- raises speed & attack
- toxic- good staller move
- swagger - another staller move

Klinklang is one of my favourite unova pokemon that has lots of defence, attack &, surprisingly, speed. He is good at stalling with his move pool.


Gothitelle (F) @ light clay - dual screening tank
EVs- 52 hp/200 defence/56 sp attack/200 sp defence
Nature- calm
Ability- frisk
Moves-
- reflect- screen 1
- light screen- screen 2
- calm mind- best tank move
- psychic- stab & to attack after screening

Gothitelle is a good sp tank & has fairly good defence so screening will be useful.

This is a unova only team & it is for the battle subway.

Hydreigon: Without Speed Ev's you will be crushed. Try earthquake and flamethrower instead of surf and fire blast. Accuracy is important. This is the desired EV Spread. 128 Atk / 128 SAtk / 252 Spd. Life orb is alot better, as it boosts both special and physical attacks. The essence of a mixed sweeper.

Leavanny: Nice moveset. Give it sweeper EV's. 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd is the way to go.

Carracosta: Waterfall instead of Aqua tail. Accuracy is very important, and It can flinch.

Chandelure: Great, but flamethrower instead of Fire Blast.

Klinklang: Really good. I wouldn't put any Ev's in speed though. Dump those 56 into SDef or HP to add some bulk.

Gothitelle: Max out Defense. Try this. 52 hp/252 defence/56 sp attack/148sp defence

Hope this helps and good luck!

I agree with aStryker97 that Hydreigon needs Speed EV's. But I would personally use Hydreigon as a Special sweeper rather than a mixed.

Hydreigon (M) @ Choice Specs
Ability- Levitate
Nature- Timid
EV's- 4 HP, 252 SAtk, 252 Spd

  • Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor
  • Flamethrower/Fire Blast
  • Focus Blast
  • Dark Pulse

Leavanny is good, just give it these EV's- 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spd

Carracosta is good, but switch Curse for Shell Smash, as you cannot sweep with Curse.

Ok, Chandelure is not a tank, and should never be used as one. If you want a special tank, get reuniclus or Vaporeon, but stay away from Chandelure. Here is what I use on my Chandelure (as a sweeper).

Chandelure (F) @ Choice Scarf
Ability- Flash Fire
Nature- Modest
EV's- 4 HP, 252 SAtk, 252 Spd

  • Fire Blast
  • Shadow Ball
  • Energy Ball
  • HP Fighting/Psychic

Klinklang is good, but give him Leftovers, and switch Swagger for Protect to get that nice Toxic + protect combo.

Gothitelle needs better EV's, so give it 252 HP, 158 Def, 100 SDef.

Oh and BTW, accuracy isn't really as important as aStryker97 said, so you can use moves like Draco Meteor and Fire Blast.

no draco medior
why not?
Draco Meteor is actually a great mov eon Hydriegon, but I suggest replacing Dark Pulse for Surf to serve as additional coverage, as Dark Pulse doesn't really hit much that you can't already.
