Dialga @ Leftovers

Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SAtk / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
- Fire Blast
- Draco Meteor
- Stealth Rock
- Aura Sphere

An excellent lead. 252 HP / 252 SDef allows for some nice special bulk. Fire Blast takes out Scizors and Ferrothorns right off the bat. Aura Sphere is a reliable move to use against things like Sturdy Forretress if needed, and also is nice for hitting other Dialgas and those annoying Darkrai's for super effective damage. Draco Meteor hits Outraging dragons before they can KO me ( although Earthquake does hurt... ) and Stealth Rock is a great way to lead off the battle with some hazards. I'm thinking about Modest and 252 Sp atk since I am running a 3 attacks + Stealth Rock set. Opinion there?

Hippowdon (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Slack Off
- Curse
- Earthquake
- Whirlwind

Physically bulky because of annoying Outraging dragons, for those wondering. Curse added on top of that can let you come in on an Outrager after they KO something ( so you don't have to take the Outrage on a switch ) and then I can get a nice Curse up. From there, I can easily Slack off the damage dealt, Earthquake major threats, and Whirwind through some stuff to get some nice phazing going with hazards from Dialga. He also sets the sand.

Excadrill (M) @ Air Balloon

Trait: Sand Rush
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Iron Head

Sand Rush allows him to be fast enough to out speed some common scarf abusers like Zekrom and Reshiram ( Now being pretty much completely replaced with Kyurem-B and Kyurem-W) . From there I have Air balloon to come in on Ground moves like Earthquake ( I love doing that to scarf users who have Earthquake ) and I get Swords Dance for a pretty insane attack stat. Earthquake is STAB and just wrecks stuff. Rock Slide is nice coverage. Iron Head is my other STAB move to cover more types for STAB power. I thought about switching out Air Balloon with a Choice Band and Swords Dance for something like X-scissor. Thoughts on that?

Kyurem-W @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Turboblaze
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Fusion Flare
- Dragon Pulse
- Earth Power
- Ice Beam

A simple scarf abuser. Timid nature let's me out speed other Kyurem-W / Kyurem-B users and wreck with STAB Dragon Pulse. This guy is actually meant to stay in for the most part if he gets into a good rhythm. Fusion Flare clears out steel types ( Come in on a dragon type. Who will they switch to? Hmm... ) and then once they're out of the way, I can come back in with a steady Dragon Pulse off of a 170 base sp atk. Earth Power and Ice Beam offering additional coverage.

Garchomp (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Sand Veil
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Outrage
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge
- Brick Break

The wall breaker. Sand Veil gives me a decent chance of evading attacks, so I slapped a band on this thing so I can go around Outraging stuff. Earthquake makes for great STAB with Stone Edge and Brick Break for coverage.

Arceus-Groun (Arceus-Rock) @ Stone Plate

Trait: Multitype
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Earth Power
- Judgment
- Calm Mind
- Recover

Now this is an annoying strategy. When people see Arceus-Groun ( d doesn't fit into PO, so that's what it corrects it to. I checked before making the nick ) they normally pull out the Ice moves they have for dragons. And then I can burst their bubble with, " Oh, it's actually on Arceus-Rock. They look really similar don't they? ". By that time I normally have a Calm Mind up. Recover helps me stay alive with Earth Power + Judgement(rock) going strong.

Thanks Son.
No problem Dad.
Ilike T-tar better than Hippow for Uber Sand, but your preference.
I like Hippo better, lol. That's pretty much all there is behind why I use him instead of T-tar.
As you said, it's just my preference.
Mew is Josh's son? Or is this a metaphor...
Yeah, we're not actually related. It's a very long story.
BTW, I love the Arceus trick. Use it all the time.
Yeah, it's neat. I got it pulled on me just a few days go with an Arceus-Ghost named Arceus-Dragon
