Need a new NU team. 'Nuff said.

Murkrow (M) @ Eviolite
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 248 HP/ 252 Def/ 8 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def,-SAtk)

  • Taunt
  • Sucker Punch
  • FeatherDance
  • Roost

Me and Jonachin's favorite lead. Supreme physical wall. Taunt shuts down stallers and is good combo with Sucker Punch, making Sucker Punch never fail. FeatherDance shuts down Physical attackers and Roost is reliable health recovery.

Marowak @ Thick Club
Trait: Rock Head
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge
  • Double-Edge
  • Substitute

Any Marowak should be using this. It works wonders, especially with Thick Club. Earthquake is STAB and Stone Edge is coverage against Ice types and Flying types. Double-Edge is very powerful and has no recoil because of Rock Head. Substitute is great for avoiding Status, such as the annoying Will-O-Wisp, which destroys him.

Skuntank @ Life Orb
Trait: Aftermath
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Taunt
  • Pursuit
  • Sucker Punch
  • Poison Jab

I just love this guy. To note that i know i am using two Dark types but they concord very well, having completely different weaknesses and play styles. Taunt shuts down stallers, once again. Pursuit is the end of those Ghosties and Psychic types, as they get KO'ed when they try to switch out by a STAB Pursuit. Sucker Punch is Priority and never fails with Taunt. It is also used on Haunter, who can use HP Ground to OHKO Skuntank. Poison Jab is good STAB.

Emboar @ Choice Band
Trait: Blaze
EVs: 252 Atk/ 128 HP/ 128 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Flare Blitz
  • Superpower
  • Wild Charge
  • Head Smash

Man, this guy hits hard. Flare Blitz is STAB and can activate Blaze faster. Superpower is Emboar's secondary STAB and Wild Charge is coverage against Flying and Water types. Head Smash is also coverage against Flying types.

Exeggutor @ Choice Specs
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 132 Spd/ 124 HP
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Leaf Storm
  • Psychic
  • Hidden Power Ice
  • Sleep Powder

Specs Exeggutor is really strong because of his beastly Special Attack. Leaf Storm is awesome STAB and so is Psychic. Not using Psyshock here... For some reason. HP Ice can be some nice coverage while Sleep Powder gets rid of dangerous threats.

Audino @ Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 SDef/ 4 HP
Calm Nature (+SDef,-Atk)

  • Wish
  • Protect
  • Heal Bell
  • Toxic

Cleric needed for the team. He has a great Ability in Regenerator. Wish is for healing teammates and Audino itself. Protect makes sure he doesn't get KO'ed by an attack while using Wish. Heal Bell gets rid of Status on my team. Toxic works great with Protect and Wish, making Audino a great Staller as well.

The end of my newest NU team. I hope you liked it!

This is all a solid team and none of the suggestions I give you really need to put in place. But I just like hearing myself talk, so I'll be answering this question. :P

Two Pokemon this team slightly has trouble with are Sawk and Alomomola. I can also see it having trouble with Swellow.

I think Audino should be replaced. As you saw in our battle, it is just Taunt bait. And it is very predictable who you are going to be WIsh Passing to, so a foe can switch and then force Audino to take the fall. Sawk can easily make use of this, as most Pokemon you'll be wish passing to can't take a hit from Sawk due to their low HP.

I think the replacement should be Raichu, who when Scarfed is able to hit a CLose Combat weakened Sawk hard with Thunderbolt and is able to hit Alomomola and Swellow for Super Effective damage.

Other than that, I'll just be dealing with EVs and Natures, which you'll see in the importable. I will say one thing about the Skuntank EVs, they allow you to outspeed standard Misdreavus, which is the fastest of Skuntank targets, allowing you to get some solid bulk going. Golurk is also a potential problem, although Murkrow does decently against it. So I also changed up the Emboar EVs.

Wow! In my answer (now gone forever...), I mentioned having trouble with physical walls like Alomomola, suggested a scarfed Electric type like Raichu or Electabuzz, and also mentioned that it's slow enough for Banded Sawk to run through his whole team! Great minds think alike huh? ;)
Great minds indeed. You guys are pros at NU :D
Trachy, this team has helped me win a lot of games. Thanks a lot!

There isn't too many suggestions, you asked me to rate, so yeah here it is.

I'd highly suggest a water type Pokemon. This completes your Water-Fire-Grass offensive core. The two water types I was looking at to help your team would be Physical Seismetoad,

  • Ice Punch (Grass coverage)
  • Earthquake (Stab)
  • Drain Punch (Recovery)
  • Poison Jab (Coverage)

Or if seismetoed isn't appealing to you, Carracosta will also help. The tank set will be what you're looking for, w/ solid rock. And as for the moves..

  • Waterfall
  • Stone Edge
  • Aqua Jet
  • (Filler) I'd suggest Crunch or something, then get rid of Stuntank since it's the weakest link in this team.

Um, Marowak isn't going to be dodging any status moves with that terrible speed.. so I'd suggest you trash him seeing that Golem can do everything he can AND set up Stealth Rocks AND take a fair amount of hits. + Threaten out Swellows and Acroblimps (Drifblim).

Audino... Well I don't like them, I don't see any point in using it, stall is annoying. You want a SDef wish passer, use LickiLicky, he can do everything Audino can, BUT ALSO gets great physical moves which you can use to fill in a gap in your team. Miltank can't wish pass, but can be stally too if you're looking for a stall.

So my main problems include
Stuntank --> Seismetoad / Carracosta
Marowak --> Golem
Audino --> Miltank / Lickilicky

I prefer Audino because he has Regenerator. All else is great advice!
