Fun physical attacker.

Larvitar @ Flame Orb
Ability: Guts
Level: 5
EVs: 244 Atk / 36 Def / 196 SpD / 28 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Facade
- Crunch

Flame Orb activates Guts and boosts Facade. Earthquake and Stone Edge form the EdgeQuake combo, and Larvitar gets STAB on both moves. Crunch is general coverage.

...Why a Toxic Orb? Bad poison will greatly reduce its time in battle.
I forgot Guts ignored the Attack drop from burns. Edited.
Still says Toxic Orb :3
Fixed again. Oops.

Larvitar @ Flame Orb
Ability: Guts
Level: 5
EVs: 244 Atk / 36 Def / 36 SpD / 188 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Facade
- Crunch

Guts sweeper. While I do like EdgeQuake, Stone Miss is a bit unreliable and I prefer D-Dance. Flame Orb activates Guts. EVs and Jolly max out its sweeping potential. D-Dance is for boosting its Attack and Speed. Earthquake is very strong coverage. Facade + Guts + Flame Orb is a potent combo. Crunch is for coverage.

crunch isn't STAB, larvitar is rock ground type
Oops, lol. Editing that.
