Any suggestions for my Sandstorm Team?

NOTE: All the members of this team are Shiny.

CantScrwThis (Hippowdon) (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Def
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Earthquake
- Fire Fang
- Thunder Fang
- Curse

My opener and Sandstorm Setup Pokemon. Sets up Sandstorm, then murders with his other moves.

Lickilicky (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Cloud Nine
EVs: 160 HP / 252 Atk / 48 Def / 48 SDef
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Earthquake
- Explosion
- Dragon Tail
- Power Whip

A seperate version of Heinz_Ketchum's Lickilicky, which I am making standard on all my weather teams. Earthquake murders Ninetales that is trying to set up Sun, Explosion is for taking down about any threat, Dragon Tail is for doing some damage, along with switching my opponent, and Power Whip takes down Politoed.

I Poke You (Cacturne) (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Bullet Seed
- ThunderPunch
- Brick Break
- Sucker Punch

A cool set that almost always works. The Band is for doing loads of damage, and Bullet Seed is for STAB and Sub-Breaking. ThunderPunch covers Flying types, Brick Break is just awesome, and Sucker Punch defeats it's lowish Speed, while gaining STAB.

I Screw You (Skarmory) (M) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Keen Eye
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SDef / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Spikes
- Rock Slide
- Drill Peck
- Night Slash

A weird set I'm going to try out. The Scarf makes this guy almost always go first, and even though it might lock me into Spikes, I want to repeat that move, right? Rock Slide covers Fire types, and Drill Peck is STAB. Drill Peck is used over Brave Bird since I don't have any recovery. Finally, Night Slash is for a lack of alternatives. NOTE: Don't suggest Stealth Rock here, since I don't want to use a move, then switch out right away.

No,IScrewYou (Garchomp) (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Lonely Nature (+Atk, -Def)
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake
- Brick Break
- Tackle

First off, this guy does screw people. With Sand Veil, and such great stats, I really, really like this guy. Dragon Claw and Earthquake are STAB, and Brick Break breaks Screens and covers Ice. Tackle is because I don't really know what else to use, and it makes a pretty funny joke when you finish off your opponent with TACKLE. I'd prefer that you don't replace this move.

TheOnlySh!ny (Sandslash) (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Lonely Nature (+Atk, -Def)
- Earthquake
- Brick Break
- Shadow Claw
- Swords Dance

A Sandstorm version of Rain Kabutops, and both have worked wonders. Earthquake is STAB, and kills about everything. Brick Break covers Ice types, and also breaks Screens. Shadow Claw destroys the Gengar that is laughing it's head off at me, and Swords Dance doubles my Attack. I didn't fill out my EVs because I don't want too much bulk, otherwise the Sash won't work.

it was hilarious when Garchomp started using Tackle against me...
btw, why did you have SAtk evs on lickilicky if he doesnt have any special attacks? did u mean special defense?
Yeah, I meant SDef. Thanks for bringing that up.
YOU MUST HAVE EXCADRILL IF YOU ARE RUNNING UBERS. and garchomp is an uber so here's his set.
excadrill @ air balloon
trait:sand rush
EV's:252 atk ,252 speed nature:jolly/adamant
swords dance:this thing lets you kill
earthquake:STAB
rock slide:coverage
return/rapid spin/x-scissor:coverage

GET RID OF TACKLE ON GARCHOMP GIVE IT SWORDS DANCE,
get rid of dragon claw for outrage and get rid of brick break for fire blast or fire fang to kill skarmory, ferrothorn, bronzong, ect.
Is Garchomp Uber now? And whose tiers are you using? I don't find this very helpful, I prefer Chomp as all Physical, and I like Tackle so that I can have some fun. And what Pokemon would I replace for Excadrill? I don't find this very helpful, so please hide it.
And for the info Chortles, we have our own tiers, and Garchomp is not uber in them.
I suggest you change SAtk to SDef before people get confused.
then can you list them for me because i'd love to battle you my brothers are wimps cause they don't wanna battle me.you could email me the list

Most of the members of our site use PO though, so I would get that if you wanted to battle most of us.
I don't have wifi, so PO is the only way I could battle you, like J98 said.
