Ok, so I am NOT interested in using any Ubers, and I also am not interested in having more then one legendary, or any pokemon considered by a few to be legendary.

Here we go:


Smeragle @Focus Sash
Ability: ???
EVs: 252 Spd / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Jolly Nature
- Spore
- Sticky Web
- Stealth Rock
- Whirlwind

*This is my lead all the time. Its main goal is to set up entry hazards after putting a foe to sleep, then whirlwinding the pokemon out for added confusion. Basically? It creates chaos.


Darmanitan @ none
Ability: ???
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Hammer Arm
- Fire Punch
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake

This is a beauty. With sheer force its fire punch is straight out scary. Its Rock Slide becomes basically stone edge with better accuracy, and Hammer Arm in my opinion is better then Superpower due to it not having an attack drop.


Latios: @ Life Orb
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Psyshock
- Surf
- Dragon Pulse
- Roost

Latios is rarely outsped, which adds on to the danger of it. Besides sporting a 130 attack backed by Life Orb, it has an access to recovery as well.


Dragonite @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Multiscale
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Dragon Claw
- Dragon Dance
- Thunder Punch
- Earthquake

Unlike other weakness policy d-nites, mine is different. I try to use dragon dance on the same turn as it is hit with full health by a super effective move, backed by multiscale. After that, it has +3 attack and +1 speed, allowing it to destroy and outspeed a lot of dangers.


Sableye @Leftovers
Ability: ???
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 Def
??? Nature
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp
- Night Shade
- Recover

Sableye is one of the most dangerous walls in my opinion. Having only a weakness to fairy is not at all bad, and sableye can wall a lot of pokemon and destroy physical attackers that come against this.


Chansey @Evolite
Ability: ???
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SDef / 4 Def
Calm Nature
- Toxic
- Seismic Toss
- Softboiled
- Aromatherapy

Chansey walls a huge amount of pokes. It is the perfect counter to greninja, a pokemon that seems to give my team trouble, and has access to a decent damage move in seismic toss. All in all, pretty good.


But thats it. I'm hoping to replace one with a mega evolution, and maybe change up some pokemon for better ones that can accomplish the same thing or more. Thanks so much!

Note that you need some Fairy Coverage, so you could replace Dragonite with Mega Aggron or something.
Alright... I'll most likely replace Chansey with florges, and leftovers sounds good. Can I get multiple leftovers or just one (in game, without trading) Any recommendation for a moveset for Mega-Houdoom and Florges? And your right, I should prob replace either D-nite or Latios. What should I replace them with now?

EDIT: I'm looking at Mega-Houdoom and it seems VERY frail. I don't know if I could use this in a good way. Any other megas?
Well, like I said, try replacing Dragonite with Mega Aggron. It's a complete TANK.
For Florges, try my moveset. Its EVs are spread so it can easily survive threats such as an Iron Head from Jirachi.

Florges (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Flower Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 152 Def / 104 SDef
Calm Nature
- Aromatherapy
- Moonblast
- Wish
- Toxic

You can only get one Leftovers in X and Y without trading, on Route 12, unless you have a Pokemon with the ability Pickup that is LV 81-100, which will have the incredibly small 1% chance of finding a Leftovers. Sorry.
If you don't like Mega Aggron, Mega Venusaur is an option.
Sorry. No Idea how to use this :P This is my first post actually, so i have no clue what I'm doing hahaha. But thanks so far everyone!

I'm mostly just going to visualize what 'Slash said for you, so don't give me best answer. A lot of this isn't my work.

enter image description here
Smeragle @ Focus Sash
Ability: Own Tempo
EVs: 252 Spd / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Jolly Nature
- Spore
- Sticky Web
- Stealth Rock
- Whirlwind

An extremely versatile lead. Nice Smeargle set. I put the ability Own Tempo because, frankly, it's the most useful ability Smeargle has access to.


I personally would switch Darmanitan for Infernape, but that's your call.

enter image description here

Infernape @ Life Orb
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Flare Blitz
- Ice Punch
- Close Combat
- Slack Off

Flare Blitz because it's still more powerful than Iron Fist Fire Punch. Ice Punch for Ground, Rock, and Flying coverage. Close Combat for Fighting STAB. Slack Off to heal recoil damage if you anticipate a switch (I run Slack Off and it actually works out usually).


Let's keep Latios and scrap Dragonite, because you a have to set Dragonite up while Latios can just wreck with a specs set.

enter image description here

Latios @ Choice Specs
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Psyshock
- Shadow Ball
- Draco Meteor
- Defog

Run specs over Life Orb because there's a higher power boost and you don't get recoil. Draco Meteor with specs is extremely powerful and will 1HKO basically anything that's not specially defensive. Shadow Ball kills Psychics and Ghosts, and Defog is to clear hazards since Smeargle doesn't run Rapid Spin.


In place of Dragonite, let's get a physical tank that covers Fairies, like 'Slash said.

enter image description here

Aggron @ Aggronite
Ability: Filter
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
Impish Nature
- Earthquake
- Heavy Slam/Iron Head
- Curse
- Stone Edge/Rock Slide

Boost Attack and Defense with Curse and get great coverage with a Ground-Fighting core. Choose Heavy Slam or Iron Head based on your confidence in Aggron's weight versus a flinching chance (I recommend Heavy Slam). Choose Stone Edge or Rock Slide based on power versus accuracy.


You've got Sableye here. I think you could use another sweeper, but it's good to have a taunter and burner. It's also good because you have a bit of a Fighting weakness, and he counters Fighting-types extremely well. He also blocks Rapid Spinning.
enter image description here
Sableye @ Leftovers
Ability: Prankster
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 Def
Calm Nature
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp
- Night Shade
- Recover

This is a good Sableye set. I actually run pretty much the same thing. I set the ability Prankster and a Calm Nature.


Next, in place of Chansey, the Florges set 'Slash recommended.

enter image description here

Florges (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Flower Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 152 Def / 104 SDef
Calm Nature
- Aromatherapy
- Moonblast
- Wish
- Toxic

Flower Veil means Sableye can't taunt it, which is really nice. Wish can help itself or another teammate who can't heal themself, particularly your physical tank, Mega Aggron. Aromatherapy means status conditions won't be a problem for your team, and Toxic cuts other annoying walls' HP. Moonblast is there for its attacking move. Nice set, 'Slash!

I hope this helps you out. Poke'slash made some really good suggestions, and I also made a few tweaks.
