so I want to make a league for Pokemon one of the teams I wanted to use was dusknoir as a set up Pokemon it would have the moves wonder room,light screen, willo wisp, and shadow punch dusknor is going to be a physical attacker and deoxys attack form is going to be a special attacker with the moves psychic, Thunder bolt,dark pulse and icy wind what's your guys opinion on this

There should be a better Pokemon that can learn all those moves. The main problem with Dusknoir is that it has bad speed and no reliable healing moves.

Yes, Dusknoir can be used for a Trick Room setup due to it's lack of Speed. Here's a good Moveset:

Dusknoir @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure or Frisk
Nature: Adamant (+Attack -Sp. Atk)
Ev's: Attack, Defense and Sp. Def
Role: Trick Room Setup/Staller

  1. Trick Room
  2. Double Team
  3. Toxic/Will-O-Wisp
  4. Shadow Punch/Fire Punch/Ice Punch/Thunder Punch

Trick Room is used to make Slower Pokemon move first for 5 turns while Double Team and either Toxic or Will-O-Wisp are used for stalling and the 1 of the 4 Punch moves is used for coverage (Shadow Punch is STAB for Dusknoir and it never misses while Ice, Fire or Thunder Punch are used for coverage)

Hope this helped :)
