Genesect

Great versatility, able to wreck things with a Mixed set + Download, as well as being speedy enoughto outrun some Fire attacks and escape with U-Turn. I would suggest:

Genesect@ Life Orb/Choice Scarf

image
Abiity: Download
EVs: 252 Spe / 24 SpA / 232 Atk
Naive Nature
- U-Turn
- Iron Head
- Ice Beam
- Blaze Kick/Extreme Speed/Hidden Power [Fire]/Thunderbolt

If Genesect is banned from whatever you're playing, then a good alternative would be

Galvantula

Galvantula provides Sticky Web support to your otherwise less-than-speedy team. He can also damage a few things with his STABs, and COmpoundeyes Thunder is awesome.

Galvantula@ Focus Sash

image
Ability: Compoundeyes
EVs: 252 Spe / 252 SpA / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Sticky Web
- Volt Switch
- Thunder
- Bug Buzz

I believe he plays on cartridge and Genesect unfortunately isn't given to everyone.
i cant get genesect unless from gts ( i think its not special) plus i HATE legends because there so over-powered
Not all Legends *cough* Articuno *cough*
sorry, but genesect is special :/
articuno with lock-on and sheer cold
but besides for articuno and regigigas, they are.
Legendaries are not all overpowered. Just look at the disappointing typing of Moltres, the poor movepool of Entei (he's outclassed by Arcanine, for crying out loud!), and the meh stats of Mesprit.

Forretress is a solid Pokemon that brings much needed Rapid Spin support as you have four Pokemon weak to Stealth Rock in your team. It can also set up its own Stealth Rocks, wall Physical threats and Volt Switch for momentum.

Forretress @ Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
252 HP/252 Def/4 SpDef
Relaxed Nature
-Rapid Spin
-Stealth Rock
-Volt Switch
-Gyro Ball/Toxic

Alternatively you can put Rapid Spin on Armaldo or Defog on Scizor and run:

Heracross is another powerful alternative which brings Fighting STAB to the table. The good old Choice Scarf set acts as a powerful revenge killer, and it has 2 stellar abilities in Guts and Moxie, the former allowing Heracross to absorb status while the latter making Heracross hard to stop once it gets a boost. Alternatively you can Baton Pass Speed Boosts to it with Ninjask and run a Life Orb set.

Heracross @ Life Orb/Choice Scarf
Ability: Guts/Moxie
252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Jolly Nature
-Megahorn
-Close Combat
-Stone Edge
-Earthquake/Knock Off

I think Armaldo is his spinner, but Forre works better anyways.
Hahaha, I completely forgot about Rapid Spin on Armaldo. I also just realised that he has a scizor on his team that can use Defog too.
+1 for Heracross <3
+1 to you too for Galvantula :D
Forry is just so damned passive. Otherwise, pretty good. Nice answer too, +1 :)
