Please read the following guidelines before posting an answer here:

  • Please include (at least) six Pokemon in your answer, each with a specified set of moves. Abilities, natures, items and especially EVs are helpful but not a necessity.

  • Be mindful that players may not be able to get certain Pokemon, such as those restricted by version exclusivity or a trade evolution. If you'd like to suggest one of these, be sure to mention alternative/s.

  • Please also be considerate that many players have particular rule-sets for teams, such as to disallow overpowered legendary Pokemon or keep the starter on the team. You're welcome to suggest otherwise, but again it is kind to mention other options.

  • Please provide ample explanation.

Chesnaught @ Black Belt
Grass/Fighting
Ability - Overgrow

 Moveset

Spiky Shield
Seed Bomb
Low Sweep
Dragon Claw

The "Knight" of the three starters.

I kept Low Sweep and gave Chesnaught a Black Belt for extra damage. Spiky Shield protects from most attacks (good for Sucker Punch blocking). Seed Bomb is a powerful Grass-Type attack, besides the STAB bonus. Sadly, Chesnaught cannot learn Leaf Blade in any possible way, so Seed Bomb is the best you can do. Dragon Claw is good for pretty much everything (except Fairy).

Chesnaught has good defense and great attack, and decent speed. Only thing it can't do much against with this moveset is Fairy.

Weaknesses: Flying, Psychic, Fire, Ice, Poison, Fairy
Resists: Water, Electric, Grass, Ground, Rock, Dark

Malamar @ Scope Lens
Dark/Psychic
Ability - Contrary

 Moveset

Psycho Cut
Night Slash
Thunderbolt
Superpower

Psycho Cut and Night Slash's increased critical hit rate along with the Scope Lens help take down anything, and Malamar's high Attack and Defense continue to increase damage. Thunderbolt is the only special attack in the moveset, but Malamar's decent Sp. Attack can make those Thunderbolts HURT. With Malamar's ability Contrary, Superpower instead increases Attack and Defense, not lower. Malamar's higher than average speed can take down most near-level opponents quickly.

Malamar would be harder to work with if not for its typing. It has few weaknesses, but no resistances. My Malamar with this moveset took down half of Diantha's team in OHKO's.

Weaknesses: Bug, Fairy
Immune: Psychic

Talonflame @ None/Rocky Helmet
Fire/Flying
Ability - Flame Body

 Moveset

Flamethrower
Steel Wing/Roost
Fly
Acrobatics/Brave Bird

Flamethrower is a good Fire-Type move, and good for damage and speed. Fly is a two-turn move, and is HM-taught. Acrobatics is good for the No-Item moveset, along with Steel Wing. Steel Wing has lower damage, but does double-damage to Ice and Rock types, and Rock does increased damage on Talonflame. If you go with Brave Bird, you could go either way and take Steel Wing or Roost. Roost heals for half of Talonflame's max HP, and loses its Flying-Typing for the rest of the turn, making Rock do less damage and have Ice be a resistance.

Talonflame is good for any team, really but it depends on how you play.

Weaknesses: Rock, Electric, Water
Resists: Grass, Fighting, Bug, Steel, Fairy, Fire

Aigislash @ Leftovers
Steel/Ghost
Ability - Stance Change

 Moveset

Sacred Sword
Night Slash
Iron Head
King's Shield

Sacred Sword's Fighting type is odd for a Ghost-type, but it bypasses all stat changes and hits for good damage. Night Slash hits for decent damage, and attacks with high Crit. chance. Iron Head is one of the best Steel-Type offensive moves, hitting for decent damage and possibly making the enemy flinch. King's Shield is a good blocker, with increased priority and blocking Sucker Punches. King's Shield also lowers Attack of any opponent that makes contact (except a few moves).

Aigislash is pretty awesome overall. Mine took down Mega Gardevoir with one Iron Head ten levels down. It also has a bunch of resistances.

Weaknesses: Ground, Ghost, Fire, Dark
Resists: Flying, Rock, Bug, Steel, Grass, Psychic, Ice, Dragon, Fairy
Immune: Normal, Fighting, Poison

Tyrantrum @ King's Rock
Rock/Dragon
Ability - Strong Jaw

 Moveset

Rock Slide
Earthquake
Crunch
Dragon Claw

Tyrantrum gets Rock Slide late (around level 60-65), so I went with Rock Tomb until the E4, then I farmed Victory Road for Rock Slide. Rock Slide does moderate damage, and has a chance to make the target flinch, and King's Rock increases that chance, though Rock Slide does have slightly lower accuracy. Earthquake does massive damage to your enemy, but also hurts your teammate (in a double battle), unless they are a Flying-Type or have Levitate as an Ability. Crunch does increased damage with Strong Jaws, and can decrease Defense. Dragon Claw is good for fighting other Dragons (Tyrantrum has decent speed), and can do good damage by itself.

Tyrantrum is overall a good sweeper, with good Attack and Defense, but has many weaknesses.

Weaknesses: Fighting, Ground, Steel, Ice, Dragon, Fairy
Resists: Normal, Flying, Poison, Fire, Electric

Blastoise @ Blastoisinite
Water
Ability: Torrent

 Moveset

Surf
Waterfall
Dark Pulse
Ice Beam

Surf and Waterfall are decent moves by themselves, having 90 and 80 Power, respectively, and are used outside of battle to travel. Dark Pulse is good for Mega Blastoise, as the gained ability Mega Launcher damage for increases pulse and aura moves (Such as Aura Sphere or Dark Pulse) by 50%! Ice Beam is a good move overall, and with Blastoise' increased Sp. Attack, can do incredible damage.

Blastoise was never my favorite starter, but is good for Sp. Attack and Sp. Defense.

Weaknesses: Grass, Electric
Resists: Steel, Water, Fire, Ice

This is probably one of the best teams I have ever had. It is balanced, and the types cover each other very well. I use other Pokemon for most HM's and Rock Smash, but I think Fly, Surf, and Waterfall are good enough moves by themselves to use in battle.

by
This is supposed to be an in game team, not for triple battling.  Perhaps put this in Pokémon Rate My Team.
Noivern has a MUCH better Special Attack than Attack So I would go with Dragon Pulse, Super Fang, Boom Burst and Hurricane. Admittedly this does not cover weaknesses, but it does give it STAB on better moves. And give Gengar Focus Blast instead of Dark Pulse, because Ghost and Dark type have the same type advantages.
what happens if  a dark type pokemon battling with delphox?
You have to face grant with a fire and ice type.

I have seen a bunch of teams posted here and I have personally beaten Y multiple times so I thought "Maybe it's time for me to post a team." So here it is:

Greninja @ Nothing
Ability: Torrent
- Waterfall
- Night Slash
- Acrobatics/ Aerial Ace
- Power-Up Punch/ U-turn

Ever since I've heard of X and Y, I've wanted Froakie and when I saw Greninja I was sold. It was love at first sight.
From everything I've seen Greninja is supposed to be a good Spec. Attacker, well mine haven't been. They always end up with a larger Attack, so I thought how about a physical Attacker? Waterfall is a pretty good move, gets STAB and there's a chance the opponent will flinch. Power-Up Punch ups his attack enhancing his whole move set. Night Slash is a good move that Greninja gets STAB from and it also has a high critical hit ratio. Acrobatics is great with the whole no item thing and it covers 3 out of his 5 weaknesses. Aerial Ace is in case you want to hold an item and it still covers 3 out of his 5 weaknesses. U-turn is a gimmicky move that is more powerful than Power-Up Punch, it may be a hit and run, but it is still a pretty good move.

Talonflame @ Leftovers
Ability: Flame Body
- Flare Blitz
- Steel Wing
- Fly
- Aerial Ace

In my opinion Talonflame is totally under-rated, with its amazing speed and decent attack this Pokémon can rock your opponents world. Flare Blitz is an amazingly powerful move with STAB, but has a pretty harsh recoil which hints to the reason for the Leftovers. Steel Wing provides coverage against Rock types and it has the possibility of upping his attack. Fly is STAB and gets you places, which leaves Aerial Ace. Now due to the Leftovers Acrobatics became a flop for this set and I already have one move that does recoil which knocks out Brave Bird. Since I was making this Pokémon a physical attacker any other Flying move would have been pretty pathetic. But wait If you think I'm hating on Aerial Ace you're wrong, because for Flying type Pokémon it becomes one of the best moves, with a base power of 90 (because of STAB) that never misses its pretty much amazing.

Heliolisk @ Zap Plate
Ability: Dry Skin/Sand Veil
-Thunder/Thunderbolt
- Rain Dance/ Sand Storm
- Parabolic Charge/ Hyper Beam
- Surf

Lots of people love this Pokémon so I thought I would try it out. I already love Electric Pokémon, but Heliolisk... I LURVE Heliolisk! With its awesome Speed and Spec. Attack it becomes a monster. Thunder is a massively destructive move (that works best with the Dry Skin Ability) and with STAB and Rain Dance it turns into fire from Hell. Thunderbolt works better with Sand Veil, mainly because of Thunder's lack of accuracy in a Sand Storm. Surf is coverage and let's you Surf. Parabolic Charge is a useful move that gets a 90 base power with STAB and the Zap Plate, and Hyper Beam is Hyper Beam.

Lucario @ Lucarionite
Ability: Steadfast
- Aura Sphere
- Bone Rush
- Metal Claw
- Psychic

I have loved Lucario since I first used one, but who hasn't? And now you can get one that Mega Evolves making this Pokémon even more of a BA!!! OH YEAH!!! Aura Sphere has always been one of my favorite moves to give him, and with Adaptability his Mega Evolution Ability it becomes so freaking amazing. It gets a whopping 160 base power and it never misses, it freakin never misses!!! Thats better than Hyper Beam!!! Bone Rush is coverage and stops those with Sturdy in their tracks, Psychic is even more coverage and Metal Claw becomes a really good move with STAB, and It has the chance of boosting his awesome attack even more.

Florges (Blue) @ Pixie Plate
Ability: Flower Veil
- Moon Blast
- Psychic
- Energy Ball/Petal Dance
- Calm Mind

Everyone's always hating on Florges but not me, Florges and I are BFFs! With STAB and the boost from the Pixie Plate, Moon Blast has gotten me out of many tight spots. Psychic is some serious coverage and Energy Ball / Petal Dance can prove to be very useful on the battle field. Florges already has an amazing Spec. Defense and a pretty good Spec. Attack, but with Calm Mind, this Pokémon becomes a Special Attack/Defense tank!

Salamence @ Expert Belt
Ability: Intimidate
- Dragon Claw
- Flamethrower
- Stone Edge/Earthquake/Brick Break
- Draco Meteor

Salamence has been one of my personal favorites since Hoenn, and they FINALLY bring it back! Dragon Claw is a great move with STAB and technically provides coverage. Flamethrower provides coverage and I wanted a Pokémon to have a Spec. Attack Fire type move. Stone Edge / Earthquake / Brick Break are more coverage moves and are both pretty good. And Draco Meteor is the most powerful Dragon type move, what's not to love?

With this set I get two Physical attackers, two Spec. Attackers and two mixed. BOO YAH!!! As I hope you can tell this set is just for all out attack and it works great in my opinion, but that's just my opinion do as you wish with each Pokémon.

Note: You can also have a Flygon instead of Salamence. He has less weaknesses and a pretty good move pool.

Flygon @ Whatever
Ability: Levitate
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake
- Rockslide
- Crunch

Ok, so I recently beat X and this is the team I used:

Chesnaught @ Black Belt
Ability: Overgrow
- Seed Bomb
- Spiky Shield
- Low Sweep
- Dragon Claw/ Poison Jab

Charizard @ Charizardite X
Ability: Blaze
- Flamethrower
- Dragon Claw
- Fly
- Brick Break/ Earthquake

Sylveon @ Pixie Plate
Ability: Cute Charm
- Moon Blast
- Draining Kiss
- HP Ground/ Psyshock
- Shadow Ball/ Calm Mind

Clawitzer @ Lucky Egg
Ability: Mega Launcher
- Surf
- Aura Sphere
- Dragon Pulse/ Sludge Bomb
- Dark Pulse/ Sludge Bomb

Frost Rotom @ Wide Lens
Ability: Levitate
- Thunder
- Blizzard
- Toxic
- Shadow Ball/ Hex

Now I'm seriously mixed between using Malamar or Aegislash as my last. I've used both but can never decide, but I'll still post the movesets.

Malamar @ Scope Lens
Ability: Contrary
- Psycho Cut
- Night Slash
- Superpower
- Rockslide/ Pluck

       **OR**

Aegislash @ Leftovers
Ability: Stance Change
- Iron Head
- Shadow Claw
- King's Shield
- Sword's Dance

I hope this has been helpful.

This is a fantastic set!!! It's kinda like mine, but very different. +1

This team is for Pokemon Y
Charizard: Let's face it: most people are going to choose charizard. I'm not saying the others are inferior, but fire types are generally harder to come by. to be fair, though, the kalos region has more fire types to choose from than any other; even the region's bird and flare blitz gifted flareon.
Charizard @CharizarditeY
Flamethrower: Stab, sun boosted
Solarbeam: Coverage, no charge in sun
Roost: Health
Air slash/Dragon Claw: Special stab/ physical coverage
Super train spA to max if you can, speed not as important in game, so rest can be used for bulk

Chesnaught: Of the kalos starters (other than delphox, and you shouldn't double up on fire types) Chesnaught pairs best with the sunny day induced by charizard.
Hammer Arm: Fighting Stab, Speed drop not an issue when already slow
Wood Hammer/SeedBomb: Stab, power vs no recoil
Rocktomb/Earthquake/Synthesis/SwordsDance/LeechSeed: Choose two: Rock Tomb received power and accuracy buff in gen 6, eq good move all round, synthesis heals more in sun, swords dance for higher attack, leech seed saps health and can support team.
SuperTrain for bulk

Tyrantrum: What took gamefreak so long to make a T-Rex? Anyway, Unique typing, rock dragon, early gift and Good Attack and movepool to back it up.
DragonClaw: DragonStab by level up, must have
Earthquake: Learned by level up.
Rock Tomb/HeadSmash/RockSlide: Rock Stab.
Rock Polish/Crunch: Boost low speed or use ability for base 120 dark move.
Super train spDef and use remainder elsewhere.

Lapras: Bulky Water type, plus neat bonus of unique surfing model
Surf: Stab and hm and bonus mentioned above
Ice beam: Stab by level up very early after obtaining
Thunderbolt: Provides great bolt beam coverage.
Waterfall: Hm
Super Train Spa and bulk

Espeon: Psychic type, Very useful in game. Plus, ADORABLE
Psychic: Stab, learned much earlier in x and y
Dazzling Gleam: Coverage against dark types
Shadowball: Coverage Against Steel and psychic
Morning sun/Calm Mind: Heal by level up/Tm boost spA and spD
Super train SpA, Hp, and Def

Pidgeot: Flyer, buffed speed, almost garunteed as first encounter
Fly: Stab hm
Return: Stab
Roost/FeatherDance/Steel Wing/Twister/Thief: Choose Two. Heal or halve foes attack, Coverage (Steel, Dragon, or Dark)

This is my ingame team for Pokemon X/Y. Sorry if it's long but I made it to go good with any starter. If you switch out Gallade for Gardevior, switch out Sylveon/Diancie for Niovern. The movesets for Gardevior and Niovern are at the bottom.

Froakie

Greninja @ Expert Belt
Water/Dark
- Dark Pulse (Stab)
- Hydro Pump/Surf (switch as needed) (Stab)
- Ice Beam
- U-turn
I chose Greninja for my starter because he has high speed stats and he can learn a lot of Tms. U-turn is really helpful in battles when you have lower Hp and covers it's weakness to grass. Ice beam is to deal with Dragon Flying Ground and also Grass. Hydro Pump has good Stab but Surf is the best substitute. Dark Pulse is also a good Stab and deals with Psychic and Ghost types.

Venusaur @ Venasaurite
Grass/ Poison
-Sludge Bomb (Stab)
-Petal Blizzard (Stab)
-Earthquake
-Petal Dance (Stab)
Professor Sycamore gives you a Kanto starter at the beginning that holds a mega stone. Sludge Bomb is a Stab move that take cares of Fairies because poison is it's only weakness. Petal Blizzard and Petal Dance are both Stabs and do about the same damage but Petal Blizzard is safer to use against trainers how uses many types. Earthquake is for coverage against Fire types and will have effect against Charizard X but not Y.

Talonflame @ Flying Gem
Flying/Fire
- Flare Blitz (Stab)
- Fly (Stab)
- Acrobatics (Stab)
- Steel Wing
Fletchling you get really early in the game. Steel Wing is to cover rock types which are super effective. Fly is for travel and with the Flying Gem only uses one turn to attack, not two, then use acrobatics which does double damage when user is not holding an item plus it's Stab. Flare Blitz is also Stab and it takes care of Ice types which are super effective.

Gallade @ Expert Belt
Psychic/Fighting
-Night Slash
-Zen Headbutt/Psycho Cut (Stab)
-Leaf Blade
-Brick Break (Stab)
I chose Gallade because of it's typing and high attack and speed. Night Slash is coverage for Ghost types and high attack. Brick Break is also Stab and destroys Screen moves and is effective against normal types. Leaf Blade is for coverage against water growing and rock types. It is okay to switch out for Gardevior.

Lucario @ Lucarionite
Fighting/Steel
-Dark Pulse
-Aura Sphere (Stab)
-Dragon Pulse
-Psychic
Lucario is practically given to you like Venasaur. It can also learn about every type of move too. Dark Pulse is for coverage against Ghost and Psychic. Dragon Pulse is to take care of Dragon Types and nothing except Steel and Fairy. Psychic is to take care of Fighting types because of Lucario's Steel typing. Aura Sphere is a good Stab and has tons of coverages.

Diancie @ Normal Gem (got over wonder trade most likely hacked)
Rock/Fairy
-Diamond Storm (Stab)
-Moonblast (Stab)
-Gyro Ball
-Return
I was really surprised to get Diancie in my game and was lucky to make a moveset for it. Because of it's typing it is only weak to Steel. Moonblast is Stab and kills all dragon type hybrids. Diamond Storm is a signature move for Diancie and is Stab. Diamond Storm hits every opponent like Dazzling Gleam and take cares of Flying types. Gyro ball is for coverage but Diancie is fast for a rock type to give it an iron tail when Normal Gem is spent. Return is for more coverage and it is suggested to max out Diancies love for you.

OR

Sylveon @ Weakness Police
Fairy
-Moonblast (Stab)
-Shadow Ball
-Psyshock
-Return
Sylveon is a really strong Fairy type and an evolution of Eevee. It is really easy to get Eevee too. Return is because you have to evolve Eevee with high friendship knowing a Fairy type move so Return does loads of damage. Psyshock is for coverage against Poison types. Shadow Ball is also for coverage. Moonblast is the strongest Fairy move that Sylveon can learn. The Weakness Police item heals Sylveon when hit by a super effective move. This is the strongest moveset I can get for Sylveon because it learns no powerful moves.

If you switched Gallade for Gardevior then switch out Sylveon/Diancie for Niovern.

Gardevior @Gardeviorite
-Shadow Ball
-Thunderbolt
-Psychic (Stab)
- Moonblast (Stab)
Shadow Ball covers Gardevior's weakness to Dark. Thunderbolt is for coverage and surprises most people. Psychic and Moonblast is for coverage.

Niovern @Choice Specs/Dragon Scale
Dragon/Flying
-Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor (Stab)
-Hurricane/Air Slash (Stab)
-U-turn/Focas Blast
-Flamethrower
Flamethrower is for coverage on Ice. U-turn is for escape or Focas Blast for power. Dragon Pulse and Draco Meteor has good Stab and so does Hurricane and Air Slash too.

by
Fairy also has Steel type as a weakness.

Charizard is a good start, with his extremely high Special Attack and Speed stat, but when you get his Mega Evolutions, those are taken to extremes.
Ability: Blaze.
Moveset:
Fly
FlameThrower
Dragon Claw
HeatWave.
enter image description here
Azumarill. Hmm. Let's see if you think this is a bad idea when my Lvl74 Azumarill kicks the crap out of all your Dragon Types, Fire Types and Ice Types. Find one with decent Attack and Defense stats and no-one can stand in your way. Trust me, I beat Malva and Siebold using only Azumarill.
Ability: Thick Fat.
Moveset:
Waterfall
Play Rough
Super Power
Blizzard/Ice Beam.

Raichu. With high speed and Special Attack, Raichu will literally rule. Raichu can have the ability Static, or somehow, you can find it's hidden ability, Lightning Rod. I really don't know how to get a hidden ability, but that would be just awesome. Give it Rock Smash, and annoying Rock types become a thing of the past.
Ability: LightningRod/Static.
Moveset:
Rock Smash.
ThunderBolt.
Discharge.
Return/Frustration.

enter image description here
Garchomp. I swear, it is worth having this Pokemon. I mean, a Ground Type and Dragon Type which can learn Surf, Flamethrower and False Swipe? Well, it really depends if you want to learn False Swipe or not.
Ability: Sand Veil.
Moveset:
Surf.
Flame Thrower.
Dig.
Dragon Rush/False Swipe.

enter image description here
Roserade. Oh, those poor Fairy Types... And Dragon! I'll show you what I mean.
Ability: Natural Cure.
Moveset:
Giga Drain.
Sludge Bomb.
Dazzling Gleam.
Synthesis.

enter image description here
And... Your starter!
....I'm sorry, I just prefer a team without starters so I can't be much of a help around this part.

Delphox: Fire Blast, Flame Thrower, Psychic, Future Sight.
EVERYONE HATES DELPHOX, WHY!!! Delphox is a great Pokemon, the fire and psychic typing is good, it has a SUPER high speed and special attack and can rip through special defensive Pokemon.

Florges: Moon Blast, Petal Dance, Dazzling Gleam, Solar Beam.
Fairy is one one of the best types, and why not use this one, especially because it can learn most powerful grass type moves.

Mega Blastiose: Waterfall, Flash Cannon, Hydro Cannon, Head Smash.
Just because you basically get squirtle for free!

Hydreigon: Dark Pulse, Draco Meteor, Outrage, Fly
Has a very balanced move pool and is a pseudo!

Heliolisk: Thunder, Cut/Rain Dance, Thunder, Thunderbolt, Surf
Hes cute, has good stats, AND can out speed many Pokemon.

Mega Lucario: Strength, Dragon Pulse, Earthquake, Close Combat
He's given to you and he can mega evolve. Another reason is because he will be much more helpful later on in the story because of his balanced move pool.

Thanks for reading, this list did not include legendaries, but if you use Yveltal or Xerneas (Like I do) then replace Florges with either.

This is my team for Pokemon Y
enter image description here
Greninja @ Expert Belt/No Item
Ability: Torrent
-Surf
-Night Slash/Dark Pulse
-Ice Beam
-Extrasensory/Acrobatics

Surf is a must have because you need it throughout the game. Night Slash or Dark Pulse, whatever you like better. Ice Beam for coverage. Extrasensory can be used to take out Fighting types and gives you a reason to use the Expert Belt, but Acrobatics is stronger and gives you more coverage, but makes using items pointless.
enter image description here
Charizard @ Charizardite Y
Ability: Blaze(Drought)
-Flamethrower/Fire Blast
-Air Slash
-Solarbeam
-Roost/Dragon Pulse/Will-O-Wisp

Since Dragon Pulse is hard to get, going with Roost is probably the best option. But Will-O-Wisp is good for Burn as well. the other moves are pretty straight forward. Flamethrower or Fire Blast, your choice. Air Slash has STAB and Solar beam to take advantage of Drought and for Rock and Water types.
enter image description here
Gardevoir @ Gardevoirite
Ability: Synchronize(Pixilate)
-Psychic/Psyshock
-Moonblast/Dazzling Gleam
-Calm Mind
-Shadow Ball

Psychic or Psyshock, doesn't matter. Dazzling Gleam is there until level 85 when you can get Moonblast. Calm Mind to boost stats and Shadow Ball for coverage.
enter image description here
Raichu @ Magnet/Zap Plate
Ability: Static
-Volt tackle
-Electro Ball
-Iron Tail/Brick Break/Grass Knot
-Strength

Volt Tackle is extremely powerful and gets STAB. Electro ball because Raichu has high speed. Iron tail is hard to get, so you might be better off with Brick Break. And Strength because it is a HM and is a overall decent move.
enter image description hereenter image description here
Staraptor/Swellow @ Sky Plate/Toxic Orb
Ability: Intimidate/Guts
-Fly/Fly
-Close Combat/Facade
-Agility/Agility
-Quick Attack/Pluck

Fly to go places. Close Combat has coverage for Staraptor and Facade to take advantage of Swellow's item and ability. Agility for speed and the last moves to fill the move slot.
enter image description here
Aegislash @ Focus Sash/Quick Claw
Ability: Stance Change
-Shadow Claw
-Iron Head
-King,s Shield
-Sacred Sword

i would recommend the Quick Claw because Aegislash has low speed. The set is pretty straight forward. Iron Head and Shadow Claw for STAB, King's Shield for form change, and Sacred Sword for coverage.

Starters: Bulbasaur and... Froakie.
Trolls: Graveler, Klefki
Sweepers: Scrafty/Bisharp, Lucario/Garchomp/Gyarados

Starters.

[email protected]
252 HP, 252 Sdef/Def, 4 Def/Sdef
Toxic
Synthesis/Protect/EQ
Leech seed
Petal Dance/Venoshock

Alright, this is the best troll... ever. It gets great recovery, and with protect you can deal bonus damage, but Toxic and Venoshock Wombo Combo is OP. Leech seed also lets you take more HP back along with damaging them. EQ, Protect, and Synthesis are all options to keep coverage or allow more recovery

[email protected] Any Item you want
Modest Nature
252 Speed, 252 attack, 4 SpA
Shadow ball
Quick attack
Night slash
Extrasensory

Alright, Night slash Quick attack and some form of ghost move, this trolls fighting quite effectively, while Extrasensory is for poison coverage, which you will need.

[email protected] Literally nothing is required
Sturdy
maybe impish,
252 Atk, 252 HP, 4 Def
Stealth Rock
Explosion/Self destruct
Rock type move
Ground type move

Alright SR for stuff... Self destruct to give them what for, and Rock+Ground move for coverage. simple nuff
Location: caves.

[email protected] Berry/Lum Berry
Bold nature
252 HP, 252 Def
Recycle
Draining kiss
T-wave
Calm mind

Look, this is a set I personally devised... it works. T-wave, then Calm mind, if you get statused eat berry, then recycle, and then sweep draining kiss. simple.
Location: route 16, along with a few others

[email protected]
Careful nature
252 HP, 252 Sdef, 4 Atk
Crunch
Brick break/Stone edge
Bulk up
Rest

Yup, Scrafty, built specially defensive to tank hits, and then dish them out. Crunch and brick break for coverage, but bulk up and rest to perpetuate life. also Rest+Shed skin. Covers Special Dark, special steel, and Psychic.
Location: Route 5

[email protected] Belt
Iron head
Night Slash
X-scissor
Low Kick

Perfect for fairies. Iron head wrecks them, Night slash and X-scissor for ghosts and psychics, low kick for steel or dark Pokemon... Because Team flare uses them.
Location: Lost hotel

[email protected] belt/filler
Modest/Timid Nature
252 speed 252 SpA, 4 Atk
Extreme speed
Flash cannon
Dragon pulse/Dark pulse
Aura Sphere

You know, this has great coverage and is given for free, so what you do is SpA near death and E-speed to finish off, can run mega, but meh...

[email protected] Item
252 Attk, 252 Speed, 4HP
Earthquake/Dig
Dragon claw/Strength
Stone edge/Rock slide
Swords dance/Rock smash

Garchomp. Pseudo legendary. Necessary for poison, but still also capable of taking on fire and dealing with electric, dig/EQ for the fact that EQ is rather lategame. SD allows Garchomp to hit HARD.

[email protected] Item you prefer
252 Speed, 252 Atk, 4 HP
Ice fang
Dragon dance
Waterfall
Surf(HM!)

Ice fang kills dragons. DDance lets things die faster. Waterfall STAB move w/ good power. Surf, for HM... also Viable on Greninja however.

Lastly, any number of HM slaves required to get you through somewhere.
Fletchling (Fly)
Bidoof(literally everything else.)

I used this team in competitive and gameplay.
Delphox
Ability: Blaze
Item: Flame Plate
Moves:
Psychic
Flamethrower
Mystical Fire
Fire Blast/Will-o-Wisp

Delphox's high Special Attack makes its STAB moves especially powerful, and with the coverage of other Pokemon on the team, it doesn't require it to know a coverage move.

Venusaur
Ability: Overgrow
Item: Miracle Seed
Moves:
Sludge Bomb
Petal Blizzard
Giga Drain
Earthquake

Earthquake is an amazing coverage move that has an impressive 100 power, easily taking out its weakness to fire. Sludge Bomb is useful for the many fairy types, and Giga Drain is useful for replenishing health.

Gardevoir
Ability: Synchronize
Item: Gardevoirite
Moves:
Psychic
Moonblast
Shadow Ball
Dazzling Gleam

Gardevoir, much like Delphox, makes incredible use of STAB moves with it's amazingly powerful Special Attack and Dazzling Gleam is specifically useful in double battles. Shadow Ball takes care of many of Gardevoir's enemies.

Salamence
Ability: Intimidate
Item: Dragon Fang
Moves:
Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Fly
Flamethrower/Stone Edge

An incredibly powerful pseudolegendary with outrageous coverage. Earthquake takes care of some Pokemon you might not otherwise have been able to take out, and Flamethrower is another perfect coverage move. However, Stone Edge does take better advantage of its high Attack.

Cloyster
Ability: Skill Link
Item: Nevermelt Ice
Moves:
Surf
Waterfall
Poison Jab
Icicle Spear

Icicle Spear does an incredible amount of damage with the Skill Link ability and gains even more because it's a STAB move. Surf and Waterfall are necessary HMs that also deal a good amount of damage. Poison Jab is simply for coverage.

Blaziken
Ability: Speed Boost
Item: Blazikenite
Moves:
Flare Blitz
Flamethrower
Fire Punch/Protect
Sky Uppercut/Brick Break

Blaziken with Protect and Speed Boost is useful for online battling, though it was banned, and Fire Punch takes advantage of being a STAB and physical move. Not much coverage available in Blaziken's move pool, but it's STAB moves deal plenty of damage.
