I haven't come up with my own movesets, I have got them from different webs, but I have edited some of them to my liking and to fit the rules of the competition. This team is a Hyper Offense team focused on the OHKO and have a variety of coverage moves. This team is also capable of having different leads as well as supporting each other in battle. It lacks walls, but I think it can manage because it has a strong defensive core. It is designed to counter some of what I think will be common Pokemon in the competition. Regieleki's role is a counter for Gyarados as I think a lot of people will be using it. Gyarados' role is the lead Dynamax sweeper and can support its teammates with its Max Moves. Flareon's role is a defensive/support Pokemon who can support its teammates with Wish/Baton Pass, while also delivering hard hits. Thanks to Trachy for this moveset! Ferrothorn's role is a wall for most Pokemon in the Crown Tundra Pokedex. Dragapult's role is also a counter for most of the powerful Pokemon in the CT Pokedex, and it's able to take down Garchomp, one of the Pokemon I fear the most in this competition. And finally, Lucario, a Physical sweeper with a variety of coverage moves.

So, all in all, this is in my opinion one of the best teams I've put together. Never Fear! THE TUNDRA HEROES ARE HERE!

Why Bullet Seed on Ferrothorn?

Some thoughts:
I don't really like regieleki as I honestly don't think gyarados will be popular(because salamence is literally a better version of it)
I'd bring mimikyu. It doesn't really counter anything but it's the quote on quote "saftey net". If your team is about to be swept the heck out of then Mimikyu can solve it since Disguise even protects it from Max Moves.
Mimikyu @ Red Card
Ability: Disguise
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Shadow Claw
- Shadow Sneak
- Play Rough
The idea is to swords dance, then reverse sweep the team. Red Card is for pokemon that have already set up, and can get rid of their boosts.
Gyarados should run dragon dance for the speed boost. I'd honestly rather use salamence because it's basically gyarados, but with more attack.
Salamence @ Lum Berry
Ability: Moxie
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Dragon Claw
- Dual Wingbeat
Flareon as a wish passer. Seriously? As far as I can tell, substitute baton pass isn't very useful so I'd just run Clefable instead. You don't need to baton pass wish, you can just switch and it'll pass over.
A set like this, probably:
Clefable @ Wiki Berry
Ability: Unaware
Level: 50
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Moonblast
- Protect
- Wish
- Teleport
Why bullet seed? Power Whip instead.
I think dragapult is very smart, especially against the absolute menace known as Spectrier. Plus all the psuedo legends. Specs is probably a better pick than life orb. Infiltrator is better than clear body for screen teams.
Lucario is a pretty subpar pick. If you want a strong steel type, go for Durant. Life Orb+Hustle= instant death Here's a set:
Durant @ Life Orb
Ability: Hustle
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Superpower
- Iron Head
- First Impression
- Stomping Tantrum
Superpower/Stomping Tantrum could be replaced with Ice Fang
Sorry if the answer's not very good, I'm pretty new to battle stadium singles.

Oh no, It's good. IT'S VERY GOOD! Much better than I can do! Although... Clefable can't learn teleport in gen 8 according to showdown.
oh shoot you're right. Try stealth rock for hazards then.
Ok, thanks!

Regieleki doesn’t need speed investment it would be better served in hp and I don’t see a strong counter for landorus therein or metagross which have already been shown to be very common and you should have an ice move to counter all the new sudos that are coming back since most are quad weak to ice but over all some minor tweaking and I think it looks good

Isn't Landorus not allowed in the Tundra Tourney?
yep, landorus is banned

I also recommend a regieleki like this:

Regieleki @ Assault Vest
Ability: Transistor
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Thunder Cage
- Electro Ball
- Rising Voltage
- Rapid Spin

And a Lucario like this:

Lucario @ Life Orb
Ability: Inner Focus
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SpD / 4 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Extreme Speed
- Meteor Mash
- Bullet Punch
- Close Combat

Dragapult like this:
Dragapult @ Focus Sash
Ability: Clear Body
Level: 50
EVs: 252 Def / 252 SpD / 4 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Dragon Darts
- U-turn
- Psychic Fangs
- Phantom Force

And use PS to simulate and plan your team if you are still not using and you can tap import/export and copy to paste it in future posts

Two priority moves?
Thanks for suggesting the site! I didn't know there was such an easy way to play competitive Pokemon!
