Scolipede (F) ( To set up stats )

Item: Focus Sash

Nature: Adamant

Ability: Speed Boost


Swords Dance- To Work Atleast 1 Swords Dance, the Focus Sash is just used as backup incase your going against a Pokémon Scolipede is weak to.

Protect- Works with Scolipede’s Speed Boost ability.

Baton Pass- For Swapping out Safely and not putting the Swords Dance or Speed Boost amplification to waste.

Poison Jab- Scolipede needs some type of attack if it is your last chance at winning the battle and before you use baton Pass you can attempt to poison the other teams Pokémon.

Alakazam (F) ( damage )

Kings Shield- Switching Stances from Attack back to Shield form.

Sacred Sword- A powerful attack and the other Pokémon’s stat changes do not affect this attacks damage, getting in a lot of damage and.

Swords Dance- For charging attack if your Scolipede gets knocked out.

Shadow Sneak- If your Aegislash gets out sped by the other Pokémon, this move always goes first, still does high damage.

Ninjask (F) ( very fast attacker )

Item: Life Orb

Nature: Jolly

Ability: Infiltrator


U-Turn- Getting damage in and being able to switch out to another Pokémon.

Night Slash- For taking out Psychic Types.

First answer so I'm sorry if I'm incorrect with anything but here goes.

Scolipede is good except for poison jab. While its a decent attacking move your completely walled by steel types. I know he's for baton pass but just a note.

Alakazam doesn't need 2 psychic moves. Hp should be replaced with any of another move. Energy ball, calm mind, recover, substitute or HP ice/fire.

Aegislash I'm not sure weakness policy is great but it can work. But id replace swords dance with gyro ball for a stab attack. Baton pass and or weakness policy is plenty of a boost. If you choose gyro ball change the nature to brave to increase it's attack power.

Ninjask. Love him. But he doesn't fit. He stacks a rock weakness with scolipede and togekiss while not giving any benefits. I'd replace him with a bulky water type. Rotom wash is a good choice among others. Rotom also provides defog support to help with entry hazards breaking your focus sash and wearing down your team.

Manectric is great except HP. Change it to HP grass or ice for coverage against water/ground types or dragon/ground types that are immune or completely resist your other attacks.

Your togekiss is good.

Again I don't know what format so I can't say if any need replacing otherwise but at first glance those are changes that would help.

I think heat form is the best Rotom. It's better at checking Charizard, Ferrothorn, and maybe also Metagross.

Love the team composition no legendaries so that's a plus+ alright here's my opinion
one by one

Scolipede could've changed the moveset to either
Protect, Baton Pass, Swords Dance, and Steam roller
Steam roller - its a STAB move and there's a chance to flinch Pokemons
Baton Pass, Swords Dance, Poison Jab and Bug Bite
Bug bite - STAB move, and with the right call a Pokemon with a berry item will be stripped of it, having no Protect is alright because when you usually see a Scolipede you'd think ohh they are going to setup and with the Focus Sash you should be fine.

Alakazam there's only one move to change and everything's good
change Hidden power(psychic) to Signal Beam
Signal beam - its very good against dark types and being a SP. Atk it has decent base dmg behind it

Ninjask I don't think you'll need him on this team you could've changed this guy to another Pokemon maybe a clearer, setup and/or a tank or you could've switched this to your setup Pokemon rather than Scolipede. but if you rather use Ninjask then here's my ideal build
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Infiltrator
Item: Choice Band
U-turn - STAB move, combined with your good base dmg + Choice Band it can deal quite a punch and free switch so you can reset your Choice Band
Aerial Ace - its a STAB move and it ignores accuracy checks even though with a decent dmg its still works well
Night Slash - your bug type moves are better for hitting those psychic type, and this move is good for taking out ghost types
Leech Life - STAB move, great damage + Choice Band + HP restoring move + high speed, this move is a great choice in general

Manectric love your choice of Pokemon, my personal favorite for a Mega. Items, abilities and nature are good but your moveset I'd change it to
Volt Switch - STAB, great damage + free switch reset for Intimadate
Thunderbolt - STAB, staple move for an electric type imo, if you had a weather setup like Pelipper or Politoed I would switch this move to Thunder
Overheat - High DPS good coverage for just in case Grass, Ice, Bug & Steel Pokemons
Hidden Power(Ice) - its much better than having another electric type move since you already have two and with Hidden Power(Ice) you have coverage for Ground, & Dragon typing Pokemons too

as for Aegislash and Togekiss nothing to change there its already good imo

Why Signal Bea > Dazzling Gleam
