I like my team a lot, but I don't has a Pokemon that has Flamethrower which need to get rid of Scizors. Each time when I met a Scizor I has to spend tons of times or luck to get rid of it.
Here's my team:
Hawlucha @ Grassy Seed
Ability: Unburden
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Acrobatics
- Close Combat
- Throat Chop
- Iron Head

Rillaboom @ Life Orb
Ability: Grassy Surge
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- High Horsepower
- Grassy Glide
- U-turn
- Knock Off

Magnezone @ Choice Specs
Ability: Analytic
EVs: 248 HP / 128 Def / 4 SpA / 128 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Volt Switch
- Flash Cannon
- Discharge
- Steel Beam

Hippowdon @ Figy Berry
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 56 Def / 196 SpD
Careful Nature
- High Horsepower

- Yawn
- Slack Off

Excadrill @ Expert Belt
Ability: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature

- Iron Head
- X-Scissor
- Rock Slide

Mandibuzz (F) @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Overcoat
EVs: 248 HP / 196 Def / 56 SpD / 8 Spe
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Taunt
- Roost
- Defog
- Foul Play

PLEASE HELP! I really don't know who should I replace. And please mind me if I should ask this question at RMT format.

Too bad Magnezone doesn't get HP Fire anymore.
Thought this goes in rmt. Can always ask in meta
Wait, is this OU format?

Replace Mandibuzz with Rotom-Heat, as it has access to Defog too and checks Pokemon like Scizor. Here's a set:

Rotom-Heat @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Overheat
- Discharge
- Defog
- Volt Switch

Modest nature so you can OHKO Scizor and max speed so you can be faster than Scizor. It also serves the purpose of your Mandibuzz, and is almost as bulky as it is, and has access to items like Heavy-Duty boots and moves like Defog and Volt Switch to make it a nice hazard remover and pivot for the team.

Hope this helps :).

But the main point I use Mandibuzz was cuz that I dont has a wall in my team, but thanks!
Then don't use hawlucha and replace with urshifu, as it is able to OHKO Scizor with its Wicked Blow that is Wicked cool. (lol)
I still don't think 2 terrain/weather sweepers on the same team is that great. If you don't want to get rid of Excadrill, you can probably drop Hawlucha.
Agreed. Although I have been totally get rekt (no, for reals) by hawlucha several times, replace it if you don't know how to deal with Scizor, and by the way, my Magnezone with specs OHKO a scizor with thunderbolt, so, yeah.
252+ SpA Choice Specs Magnezone Thunderbolt vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Scizor: 202-238 (58.8 - 69.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
Possible damage amounts: (202, 204, 207, 208, 211, 214, 216, 219, 220, 223, 226, 228, 231, 232, 235, 238)
The smogon's usage set makes Scizor can't be OHKOby a normal thunderbolt
i think it was a critical hit.
252+ SpA Choice Specs Magnezone Thunderbolt vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Scizor on a critical hit: 303-357 (88.3 - 104%) -- 25% chance to OHKO
Still cant
Forget it.

You can probably get rid of Excadrill. 2 sweepers with Weather/terrain is probably too much anyways. Volcorona is a good Fire type user. It can easily OHKO Scizor.

Volcorona @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Flame Body
Timid Nature
EVs: 252 Spe/252 SpA/4 SpD
IVs: 0 Atk
-Quiver Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Psychic/Giga Drain

Dynamax is not in OU right? I know it's OU because no one wants to use a team that's supposed to be in OU against a bunch of overpowered Ubers pokemon, right?
But exadril was one of my most useful pokemon in my team, but thanks!
Sorry, I didn't realize this was OU lol
