You have 3 NU Pokes. Two of them that don't belong in DW OU. Ninjask NEEDS Baton Pass and there are so many better Rapid Spinners.
Trying to avoid the use of forretress since i used him a crapton of times xD.

Any other spinner ideas then??
Claydol.
ahhh thanks I"ll get round to chanigng once i find the time
Both Swords Dance and U-turn together contradict each other; set up and then lose the boost when attacking. Also, the sweeping role is hard to pull off with two bug type moves, which have horrible coverage. Give it Baton Pass.

Best answer

This team is good, but not great.

Mamoswine's Ice Shard will kill off any Ninjask trying to attack or Substitute, any Espeon lacking Reflect, and any kind of Serperior. And if you try to counter it with Heatran, it can KO with Superpower. This goes for Snorlax as well. Armaldo doesnt like getting hit at all; an Impish Nature Armaldo with Max Def against an Adamant Nature Mamo will still get destroyed, especilly with the typicla Choice Band.

Toxicroak's Sucker Punch will hurt your Espeon's feelings, and slam Ninjask for a KO. The same goes for a Serperior without Def./HP investment. In addition to that, both of Ninjask's attacking moves are both Bug, which have horrible coverage even after a Swords Dance. Toxicroak's Poison/Fighting typing takes only 1/4 of the damage from a U-turn or X-Scissor. His Drain Punch will deciamte the likes of Snorlax and Heatran, although he doesnt like to be burned by Heatran. Both of Armaldo's attacks are also resisted by Toxicroak.

To improve this team,
Baton pass! (Ninjask) (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Protect
- Swords Dance
-Substitute
-Baton Pass
I suggest using his main niche: Baton Passing.It would better benefit your team's sweepers, such as Espeon, Serperior, and even Heatran :). Subtitute is, of course vital to this set

Espeeon (Espeon) (F) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Magic Bounce
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Psyshock
- Future Sight/Psychic
- Shadow Ball
- **Hidden Power (Fire)
**Not the best special sweeper due to coverage issues, I would suggest getting to the point with Psychic, although dropping Psy Bombs on incoming Toxicroak is cool :) You are going to need either Fire, Fighting, or Ground so you wont be walled by Steel type. Thunder is always an option, just in case you encounter an overrated Rain Dance team.

Heatran (F) @ Air Balloon
Trait: Flame Body
EVs: 244 HP / 252 SDef/ 8 Spe
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
-Lava Plume
- Earth Power
- Stealth Rocks
- Dragon Pulse/Roar
With no reliable means of recovery with the Air Baloon equipped, I, personally, would suggest a Shuffler set. WIth access to Both Stealth Rocks and Roar, Heatran can make up for his lacking offfenses and burn Physical attackers with that 30% chance on either Flame Body or Lava Plume. I dont understand why you would run a Calm nature on a Pokemon with only 4 EVs in SDef. Run a Specially Defensive set instead of what you had before. (?)

Armaldo (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 Atk / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Rapid Spin
- X-Scissor
- Rock Blast
- Stealth Rock
Ugh... There are better Spinners in OU, such as Starmie, Forrestress, and Tentacool. Come to think of it, there are better Spinners in LU/RU. However, Armaldo is by no means bad, and if your going to use it, use the set that you currently have, since he wont be doing much damage anyway. (Your EV's will need to containa both HP and Def./SDef., but I am no EV expert, so go here if you want advice on EV's

Serperior (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Contrary
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Leaf Storm
- Giga Drain
-Hidden Power Fire
-Subtitue
Yea go with Hidden Power Fire and get rid of Dragon Pulse, unless you want to be walled by a Steel type. Subtitute grants it temporary protection against Mamo, and after 2 Leaf Storm+Contrary Boost and a Baton Pass from Ninjask, you will tear through you opponents team. Lets not forgot about how hard Giga Drain will hit after a Contrary Boost or two; it wont matter whether the foe resist it or not, it will still hurt. A lot. Giga Drain will also recover any damage that Serperior has taken from attacks, status, or substitue, and Big Big Root helps with recovery in place of Leftovers.

Snorlax (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Toxic
- Seismic Toss
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

This set is fine for Snorlax, although let's note that Gengar walls you completely. Use Thick Fat over Immunity, as Rest will heal any form of status effects that Snorlax could be induced with.

Despite the fact that Mamosine and Toxicroak already have their DW abilities released, you may still come across them. Personally, I wouldnt use Ninjask or Armaldo, but as for this team, I hope I helped!

epic answer just epic
Don't tell me mammoswine beats Espeon, just dont. Now, who the heck uses a mammoswine. What is this nu? You are wrong. Ice shard won't beat Espeon. And how many psyshocks will it take. And one future sight on toxicroak and it's over. Sucker punch won't work if he uses future sight.
Mamoswine is a complete monster he can hit ridiculously hard
