as you can see from my profile here,

i have a breloom and exploding metagross.
so I was thinking: why not make a breloom metagross combo?
so I was thinking that my breloom would be an evasive life orb user with poison heal, so moves like protect, double team, substitute & some offensive moves like seed bomb and drain punch (sig move) my metagross is something i'm not to picky about as long as it explodes.
i am open to any idea.
also, I am making this team for gen 4, I am also planning on using it for double battles, hence; I might also need two more Pokemon to train.
yours indubitably,

explosions are part of my religion
Wasn't there a rule somewhere that religiously-natured discussions were not allowed?
"Kaboomism" ascends all laws of man.
And if explosions always win battles, why don't I see Explosion on every competitive Regice?
because some people in this world have a different belief other than torgue and that is acceptable because it is everyone's human right to there opinion.

Alright, I'll give a good core from a competitive point of view. Double Team is very gimmicky and doesn't actually guarantee a miss

Breloom @ Toxic Orb
Ability: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 HP/ 44 Atk/ 212 SpD
Careful Nature
-Leech Seed
-Focus Punch

I present to you subseedpunch breloom. With leech seed and poison heal, you get a whopping 25% healed per turn! Special defense evs ensure that standard Starmie's surf does not break sub. Forus punch is a good STAB move behind a sub.

Metagross @ Choice Band
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Meteor Mash
- Zen Headbutt
- Explosion
- Earthquake/ Trick/ Bullet Punch/ Thunder Punch
This guy hits REALLY hard. Last move depends on coverage/ strategy preference.
Here's a calc: Choice Band 252+ Atk Metagross Explosion vs 252 HP/252 Def+ Tyrantitar: 76.8-90.8%
Great choice of mons by the way. Their typings synergize very well.

eeeeexelent, the only problem i have w/breloom is that even with exelent evs in defences, it can get one shotted anyway.
but that is an almost perfect team.
