Trait: Shell Armor
EVs: 255 HP / 255 Atk
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Swords Dance
- Giga Drain

Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

This guy is my sweeper, and he is BEAST! Standard sweeper set.

EVs: 8 HP / 124 Def / 252 SAtk / 124 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

Hidden power grass on typhlosion and since you are running off PO it'll have a nice base 70 power
seriously? ice covers more weaknesses than grass.
Actually, Grass covers all 3 weaknesses XD. But Ice is good for killing off Dragon types.

Since Torterra is your lead, I suggest giving it Stealth Rock. Your Team will benefit from it and your opponent will be wary to switch in an Ice Type against Torterra. You want a lead Torterra to be Bulky, so replace Swords Dance with Curse because you get a Defense Boost as well as a Attack boost. Since your Torterra has an Adamant Nature, you might want to replace Giga Drain(special) to either Wood Hammer or Seed Bomb for that extra power. Make your EV spread 252 Defense, 168 HP, 84 Attack for that extra Bulk.


Okay, this Blaziken is not taking advantage of its ability, so I suggest:

Blaziken@ Life Orb
Trait:Speed Boost
Adamant Nature
EVs:252 Speed, 252 Attack, 4 HP

  • Protect
  • Swords Dance/ThunderPunch
  • Hi Jump Kick
  • Flare Blitz

Okay, that should be a more effective set. Protect allows you to get a free Speed Boost up. Swords Dance raises your Attack to blistering levels and ThunderPunch is coverage against. Water types. The other 2 are STAB. This is a better set that takes advantage. Of its new ability. I hope you use it.


I believe. This is a Special Wall? Well I recommend you change the Nature to Calm Nature and use this moveset:

  • Toxic
  • Scald
  • Protect
  • Ice Beam/Rest

A Special Wall. It Walls as it Stalls! This is the basic Staller set that needs no explaining. You can always replace Blastoise with Empoleon for a Wall because of its Steel typing.


Its pretty good honestly. Since it is a Sweeper, you want to outspeed. So, give it a Jolly Nature. Your Moveset can also use a little adjustment. As SF said above, you need Swords Dance to cause some damage. Replace Earthquake with Swords Dance. With the move Acrobatics, you get a boost from Flying Gem when you use it, so replace Night Slash with Acrobatics, because Night Slash only covers 2 types. Also replace Grass Gem with Flying Gem.

With the other two, SF suggested what I would have, so because I don't want to copy him go with what he said.

Ok you should just switch out on an Ice type anyway. Give him Leftovers, Change Swords-dance to Curse. Giga-drain is useless here especially with an S. Attack reducing nature swap for Seed-bomb for STAB or Synthesis for healing. The Ev spread should be 252 Attack, 252 Defense, 4 S. Defense(you can use that 4 for 1 more point).


Ok give this guy a beneficial Nature either Adamant or Jolly. Then you should switch Sky uppercut for Brick break for reliability or Hi-Jump-Kick for Power. Agility is useless because of Speed boost so swap it for Blaze-kick or Fire-punch. Another thing you could do(but this is just a suggestion) maybe swapping Acrobatics for E-quake/Baton-pass/Hone-claws and give him Sash but this is good anyway.


Good but you could do alot better with this guy. A better set with those EVs would be Iron-defense, Toxic, Aqua-ring, Surf. He is not really a Mirror coat Pokemon nor is he a Physical tank he is a Wall.


This guy will not be sweeping very well without Swords-dance so swap Night-slash for it. Give him a Jolly nature.


This guy is most strictly a sweeper do not, I repeat, do not use him as a tank. Nature should be Timid, EVs should be 252 S.Attack, 252 Speed, 4 Hp. Item: Focus-sash, Moves: Eruption, Flamethrower(For when your HP goes down), Hidden Power(Ice or grass) and Extrasensory.


Ok turn those S. Def evs into Speed evs and give him Dragon-dance instead of Shadow-claw and maybe give him a Jolly nature and you have got a good Sweeper.

Overall team

Pretty good for an all starter team I would say 6 or 7 out of 10
