It's not an [RU]oppster sand team without Cradilly. C'mon now.

Ok this team looks good but it seems to have a few problems. An apposing ommastar or a sceptile could do some major damage to this team. Gallade could come in and hit ridiculously hard or maybe an unaware quagsire could wreck your team with scald.

here are some of my suggestions.

aerodactyl looks good

sandslash

this is a set i have used before and has worked well on my sun team so it should work pretty good here.

(Sandslash) (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Night Slash
- Rapid Spin
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
sets up hazards and spins them away. Gets rid of spin blockers with night slash. Earthquake hits hard thanks to stab.

i dont think steelix is really helping your team that much. so i suggest a cradily.

Cradily (F) @ Smooth Rock
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Recover
- Sandstorm
- Toxic
- Giga Drain

ok you know he isnt a RU pokemon but he can do the same thing steelix did but better. Sure he may not be as good physically but he has great special defense with this set and can suck up water type attack and add to his specially attack. He can be a great stalling wall and sucks up water attacks for a special attack boost. toxic to stall. sandstorm since i took it off of sandslash. recover for instant healing and giga drain for healing while attacking. he can stop a quagsire and hit back hard with giga drain. He can also use toxic on wall to make them useless.

the rest of the team looks good to me and that is my two cents.

isn't cradily NU?
I said that but you can use him in RU since I had an RU sand team and I used him. He helps out a lot!!
