PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I like making teams in Pokemon showdown that follow certain themes like a team for every type, the Pokemon with the highest attack, etc. I wanted to make a team that consists of 6 of the best Pokemon for sweeping because why not. I do feel sorry for the innocent souls who just wanted to enjoy the game with their favorite Pokemon. You can give more than 6 Pokemon if you want btw.

Btw teams of all sweepers don't work very well.

Source: experience. I had a team of set up sweepers who were completely walled by Toxapex.
I don't really care ~MegaCharizardY~. I just wanna have fun and increase the number of my teams, weird hobby I know.
'Best sweepers' are obviously subjective and change a lot, and the best pokemon in a tier don't necessarily work well together. That being said, I think the question is overall fine, maybe specify 'someof the best' currently?

Also Y, teams of all sweepers are called Hyper Offence, and they're often very good.
What format/rules are you playing with?
While I quite like hyper offense, it's not just pure sweepers. Almost every HO team has a suicide lead, which usually doesn't contribute much to the sweeping portion. Revenge killers can sometimes be sweepers, but since they're usually Choice locked into weak priority moves, they have to switch out to get some good damage on an opponent with full HP. Ofc this isn't always the case, just saying.

Here's a team of sweepers I created. I'll assume it's Gen 8 NatDex, like the previous answer.

Zeraora @ Choice Band
Volt Absorb
252 At and Spe, 4 SpD
-Play Rough
-Plasma Fists
-Close Combat

Standard, but works well. If threatened by a Ground type, switch to.....

Hydreigon @ Life Orb
252 SpA and Spe, 4 SpD
-Dark Pulse
-Draco Meteor
-Nasty Plot

Again, pretty standard. Hydreigon has an amazing moveset, so any moves can be substituted with Flash Cannon, Flamethrower, Earth Power, or the like. If threatened by a Fairy, switch to.....

Aegislash @ Weakness Policy
Stance Change
252 At, 128 Def and SpD
-King's Shield
-Swords Dance
-Shadow Sneak
-Iron Head

This one is a bit of a mixed bag. It also has Sacred Sword as another coverage option. If threatened by a Dark type, switch to....

Xerneas @ Power Herb
Fairy Aura
252 SpA and Spe, 4 SpD
-Thunderbolt/Focus Blast

Xerneas with Geomancy and a Power Herb is still a beast. If threatened by a Steel type, switch to.....

Arcanine @ Lum Berry
Flash Fire
252 At and Spe, 4 SpD
-Flare Blitz
-Outrage/Wild Charge
-Extreme Speed
-Morning Sun

This is one of my favorite sweepers. Flare Blitz and Wild Charge recoil can be healed with Morning Sun. If threatened by a Water type, switch to......

Ludicolo @ Damp Rock
Swift Swim
252 SpA and Spe, 4 SpD
-Rain Dance
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Giga Drain
-Ice Beam

So that's it. The team has 3 Special sweepers and 3 Physical ones. I tried to have a major weakness of one sweeper be resisted by another one. Other than that, they're pretty much each their own individual thing. Please comment any suggestions.
