PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I want to make a team for battle tree singles, but whenever I use only tanks, the battles last way too long. But on contrary, whenever I use only my attackers, whenever I get a bad match up, I can't do much, and have to restart. Any ideas for the balance of tanks and attacker I should put in?

If you want more wins, ya gotta put in the time. You can't rush it. Take advantage of tanks. :|

The best team I know of got over 4000 wins. It has 2 tanks/support and one Pokemon that's both a tank and a sweeper. So I guess tanks are good.

Boy, that’s a better answer! An upvote for you
I knew of the existence of this team, and thought about posting this, but didn't know if it would've been a good enough answer.

I wouldn’t use too many tanks, but I wouldn’t use too many attackers with bad defenses. I would recommend 1 Hard-hitting attacker, 1 Tank, and for the last spot either a bulky attacker or a tank. A good team could be:
[email protected] Specs
EVs:252 Sp.Attack 252 Speed 4 HP
•Night Daze
•Grass Knot
•Focus Blast
[email protected]
Ability:Natural Cure
Ability:Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP 252 Sp.Defense 4 Defense
•Seismic Toss
•Soft Boiled
[email protected]
Ability:Any———-Sand Force
EVs:252 Attack 252 Defense 4 HP
•Gyro Ball
Hope this helps!
