Whats the rest of your team?
still haven't thought of the team.
Probably going to build it from there along with
Smeargle @ Leftovers  
Ability: Own Tempo  
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Timid Nature  
- Substitute  
- Baton Pass  
- Nasty Plot  
- Swords Dance  

Salamence @ Dragon Fang  
Ability: Moxie  
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe  
- Roost  
- Tailwind  
- Fire Fang  
- Dragon Claw
Can you explain why Lux and 'Trive have those sets? It'd really help us if you had a team out of the works too :D....

I'd personally use Luxray because of Guts. But I'm not a strong battler myself
Maybe you'll want to replace roar with ice fang.

Electivire.

Electivire has more stats where it counts, in Speed and Attack. It also has more powerful coverage moves in its arsenal, and it isn't worn down as easily. Also, no offense, but there are much better Electivire sets you could run. Here's what I would run:

Electivire @ Expert Belt / Life Orb
Ability: Motor Drive
Jolly Nature if Fire Punch or Earthquake, Hasty otherwise
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
- Wild Charge / Thunder Punch
- Ice Punch
- Cross Chop / Brick Break
- Volt Switch / Hidden Power Grass / Fire Punch / Earthquake

Wild Charge / Ice Punch forms a physical variant of the infamous "BoltBeam" combo, with a Fighting move rounding off the coverage. The last move is up to you and how your team turns out.

Smogon.com also has more sets, if you search "smogon electivire" it should be the first search result.

Hope I helped!

Thx This will really help ! :)


Ps. I might also use the lux set on another team :P
Awesome. For Lux, though, you'll probably want to be running Facade / Wild Charge / Superpower / Ice Fang.
I'm doing both sets u suggested on a mono team :)
Awesome, thanks! Let me know how it goes.
it has gone good

:)
That's great.
