Your Mom (Golduck) (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Cloud Nine
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Surf
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Grass]
- Ice Beam

Lead wether stopper. Cloud nine keeps other weather away, Surf is for taking care of hippowdon, Focus blast is for getting on tyranitar and Abomasnow, HP grass is for politoed, and ice beam is coverage. He has great HP bulk so I decided to use it.

Tyranity (Tyranitar) (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 Atk / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Avalanche
- Payback

My classic payback killing Tyranitar. His EVs and nature stack up for a monstrous 403 base attack stat. E-quake and stone edge hit hard and avalanche and payback is the payback killer part of this guy.

pwn (Excadrill) (M) @ Focus Sash

Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Brick Break
- Aerial Ace

Amazing speed with a sandstorm around. E-quake is STAB, Rock slide is the only rock move he has with decency, brick creak is coverage, and Aeriel ace is also coverage.

EWWWWWWWWWWW (Gastrodon) (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Surf
- Sludge Wave
- Earth Power
- Ice Beam

EWWWWWWWW the gastrdon is back. Surf and Earth power is powerful STAB, Sludge wave and ice beam is good coverage.

nameless (Mandibuzz) (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Overcoat
EVs: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Toxic
- Fly
- Protect
- Taunt

just keep stalling just keep stalling just keep stalling stalling stalling

Lets Eat (Alakazam) (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Magic Guard
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Psyshock
- Focus Blast
- Energy Ball
- Shadow Ball

Amazing sweeper. Magic guard prevents life orb recoil with that legendary speed and sp.atk. Psyshock is STAB, the rest is coverage.

Do you realize that you don't have to kill a Hippowdon or a Tyranitar, as they set up your weather for you?

Golduck

Well, you do realize an HP Grass from him is going to take 4-5 hits to kill your average Politoed?
But either way, he looks in decent shape, I would consider Lickilicky over him for a weather stopper.

Tyranitar

I would consider Curse as one of his move choices, And I would go 64 on your defenses and 128 into his Hp, it makes him a bit bulkier in the long run.

Excadrill

Ariel Ace isn't worth it, 60 power only doubles to 120, an STAB Earthquake would deal more damage than a super effective Ariel Ace, Not very affective E-Quake would do more than a neutral Ariel Ace.
Go for Swords Dance in that slot, and think of Air Balloon over that focus Sash.

Gastrodon

Ice Beam already has grass covered, Poison is only super effective agaisn't grass. Use Recover for the slot instead of Sludge wave, is lets him stall out a good bit more.

Mandibuzz

Taunt isn't doing you as much as Roost would for a staller, when you have instant reliable recovery, take it. Use Roost over Taunt if you didn't catch where I was going with that one.

Alakazam

Heavily consider HP Fighting over Focus Blast, as Alakazam does have amazing Sp Atk, and Life orb boost to boot. He's probably going to need reliability more than Power.
