Crobat /Flying Gem

EVs: 252 atk, 252 spd, 4 HP
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
Ability: Inner Focus
Super Fang

Most use Crobat as a wall breaker, and I’m using a set similar to smogon’s wallbreaker set, but I’ve decided to to go with Acrobatics instead of Brave Bird. Acrobatics hits really hard and is STAB, Taunt stops walls/set-up sweepers from doing their job. Roost is reliable recovery, and after Spikes damage, Super Fang reduces the enemies HP to a maximum of 44%, and a minimum of 37.5% HP, which Acrobatics can mow through easily.

Roles: Wall/Stall Breaker, Acrobatics Sweeper


EVs: 248 HP, 84 def, 176 spd
Nature: Timid
Ability: Cursed Body
Ice Beam
Pain Split

I chose Froslass because of it's abilit to lay down spikes, and spinblock at the same time. Taunt stops the enemy from setting up, and also keeps the hitmonfamily from Foresight Spinning. Ice Beam is STAB, and Pain Split works really well after my spikes are stacked and my HP is down.

Roles: Spikestacker, Support, Spinblocker

Porygon-Z/Choice Scarf

EVs: 252 spatk, 252 spd, 4 HP
Nature: Modest
Ability: Adaptability
Dark Pulse
Hidden Power Fighting

W/Scarf Porygon-Z becomes an outstanding revenge killer/late-game sweeper, as it has the speed to make quick work of most opponents with it's great spatk stat. Tri-Attack is STAB, and hits really hard w/Adaptability boost. Dark Pulse hits ghost types such as Froslass and Dusclops, while HP Fighting hits rock and steel types that resist T-Attack and D-pulse. Trick alllows him to cripple walls ans set-up sweepers.

Roles: Revenge Sweeper

Rhyperior/Life Orb

EVs: 252 atk, 20 spdef, 236 spd
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Solid Rock
Rock Polish
Stone Edge

For my Physical Sweeper I needed something that could hit hard, and Rhyperior is not only the size of an Abrams, he hits like one to. Rock Polish gets his Speed up to useable levels, and Stone Edge and Earthquake give him a formidable STAB EdgeQuake combo, and to top it off, Megahorn taks care of grass types.

Roles: Physical set-up sweeper


EVs: 252 HP, 252 def, 4 spatk
Nature: Bold
Ability: Regenerator
Giga Drain
Hidden Power Ice
Sleep Powder
Leech Seed

I had to dip in to RU to produce my physical tank, but he is so bulky, I don' think it matters that he is from a lower tier. Giga Drain + Leech Seed + Leftovers + Regenerator give him recovery out the wazoo, and HP Ice allows ihm to take down opposing grass types, as well as ambush Flygon. Sleep Powder is really annoying, and allows him to set up Leech Seed, which is can inflict such frustration to the point of ragequitting. Hidden Power Ice Screws with other grass types, as well as hitting Flygon.

Roles: Tank, Staller


EVs: 252 HP, 252 spdef, 4 spatk
Nature: Calm
Ability: Torrent
Stealth Rock
Ice Beam

I needed something to sponge specal attacks, and Empoleon seemed to fit right in. Stealth Rock is just because, Scald is STAB, and has a nice burn chance. Ice Beam hits Flygon and all that jazz, while Roar is for Phazing, which works really well after SR and full Spikes.

Roles: Special Tank, Phazer, Rock-Setter

Can you either write your own descriptions or not use descriptions at all?? If we wanted to read descriptions from Smogon, we could just go and look there. It doesn't really tell us much about the pokemon's role in the team and why you chose it.
There, happy?
Holy cow it has tangrowth <3

Good Crobat, Smogon ahs some really nice movesets. Go with Jolly, you need the extra speed, even though you're pretty fast, crobat is frail, and one STAB / SE hit can send it flying. Dont' wanna take a chance :\

Otherwise, good to go! :)
Another good Pokemon, the only major thing I would recommend is a Focus Sash, you don't have to use it, I just find it really helpful.
Another good set from Smogon :D I would suggest Thunderbolt over Trick, I understand that Trick might be useful, but since this is a revenge sweeper, you're mostly killing off Poke's anyway. You don't have to switch, though.

Have you ever thought of the amazing wall Porygon2? IYou don't need it :P but I'll suggest it, since Porygon2 is my second favorite tank/wall, after Dusclops.

Porygon2 @ Eviolite
Trait: Download/Analytic
EVs: 252 HP / 176 Def / 80 SpD
Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk)
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt
- Tri Attack
- Recover

Once again, you don't have to use it, I just <3 Porygon2, so.... yeah.
You can try it though!
If you want Rock Polish, I would suggest 252 Atk, 4 SpD, 252 Spe. Fast enough be able to survive a little after one Rock Polish, I guess. :P TBH, I've never even heard of EdgeQuake, but I guess it's good. Lightingrod might just work, too :D
Good. But a well placed fire STAB could just barely take it out, so watch out.
Stealth Rock is just because xD lmao. If Stealth Rock isn't very important, Agility can work. Empoleon is a beast with super fast speed. Or replace Ice Beam with Agility and just phaze if you set up right.
Overall, super great team, though it's all from Smogon xP Hope This Helped a bit, and I would like to battle this team if we up in chat someday :)

Sorry, my icons didn't work :(
I know, I think it's down :c btw Rhyperior's EV spread is illegal, lol.
Flame, 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 252 Def? Really?
Haha its an Uber Rhyperior with 248 extra EVs in Spd. may as well give it Multitype as an ability while we're at it......
It was probably a typo guys, he doesn't need 40 people telling him he made a mistake.
