We all know how hard it is to take down the Steel type of a team, but this is a whole team of them, enough to make anyone go insane!

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Iron-barbs
Nature: Careful
EVs: 200 Defense, 252 S.Defense, 58 Attack

Leech-seed: Stalling and healing
Thunder-wave: Status
Power-whip: STAB
Stealth-rock: Entry hazard

My lead, yes I know Ferrothorn so predictable right, well I liked Ferrothorn back before I knew he was going to be an OU Pokemon so HAH! He is also neutral to Ground which is useful on this team.

Item: Air-balloon
Ability: Flash-fire
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp

Flamethrower/Magma-storm: Which STAB?
Dragon-pulse: Coverage
Earth-power: Coverage
Dark-pulse: Coverage

Sweeper, helps remove that nasty Fire weakness.

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 200 S.Defense, 58 Defense

Iron-defense: Boosting
Scald: STAB+Burn chance
Ice-beam: Coverage
Aqua-ring: Healing

or should I do

EVs: 252 S.Attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp

Agility: Boosting
Hydro-pump/Surf: STAB
Ice-beam: Coverage
Flash-cannon: STAB

This is supposed to help cover Fire and Ground types.

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Technician
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 Hp

Bullet-punch: STAB+Priority+Technician boost
Brick-break: Coverage
Bug-bite: STAB+Technician boost
Swords-dance: Boosting

Its Scizor....

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
Nature: Careful
EVs: 252 S.Defense, 200 Defense, 58 Attack

Brave-bird: STAB
Spikes: Hazard
Whirlwind: EVIL
Roost: Healing

This is my Pokemon for destroying stat booster and for covering Fighting types.

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Magnet-pull
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 S.Attack, 128 Defense, 130 S.Defense

Thunderbolt: STAB
Magnet-rise: No ground weakness :D
Hidden-power(Fighting): Coverage
Light-screen: On a Mono-steel team S.Defense boosting is very useful

I am considering switching some for Genesect or Lucario. Any suggestions?

@ Mew, Yeah personally I am not a fan of Magnezone, I was thinking of setting Magnet rise up before a ground type switched in. @Giga, I am also considering him. @Tyson, Personally I prefer Leftovers.
Problem with this is that with 3 pokemon it can be beaten.Infernape gets Ferrothorn,Magnezone,Skarmory, and scissor easy.Pull out tortera for Empleon and a empleon can handle a heatran.But i have to give that adding a Empleon is something i didnt see comeing
Well, that's in theory. I kind of doubt Speed Freak would send in Scizor on infernape. If he was predicting a fire attack, he'd probably send in heatran. Besides, every Mono-Type team is going to have a lot of the same weaknesses.
Giga\ is right, where's my baby!?!?!?
Metagross! >.<

Here are sum suggestions:
ferrothorn: try including gyro ball in the moveset. or try the curse+gyroball combo i like 2 use. also try bulldoze 4 coverage
heatmor: maybe STAB ironhead 4 darkpulse
empoleon: neither! try this subpetaya empoleon
makes a great last ditch sweeper!
scizor:put pursuit on him 4 those switch addicters (it requires good predicting 2 be useful)
try x-scissor 4 struggle bug
skarmory: replace spikes 4 steel wing (unless u dicth stealth rock on ferrothorn)
magnezone: try sandstorm 4 lightscreen. it does the same thing but last longer.if not, take light clay 4 item
good luck!

Ferrothorn: Curse ends up being too difficult for Ferro to use. And anyways, it doesn't need it due to how slow it is. And Thunder Wave+Gyro Ball can cause some problems. Ferro is slow enough to sometimes pull it off, but it is still not the most favorable. Bulldoze conflicts with Gyro Ball, so I don't see why you are suggesting it. And a 60 base power move isn't the best for covering. Plus, it doesn't fit with what he is going with for Ferro.

Heatran (Not Heatmor): Steel type attacks usually suck since they get pretty much no coverage. And a physical STAB on a special Pokemon?

Scizor: He doesn't have Struggle Bug on Scizor. And if you mean Bug Bite, then Technician makes Bug Bite more powerful than X-Scissor.

Skarmory: As I said before, Steel type attacks usually suck.

Magnezone: Sandstorm does not do the same thing as Light Screen. It only increases Special Defense on Rock type Pokemon (and even then, Light Screen still has a higher boost). Also, Light Screen lasts the same amount of turns as Sandstorm.
trachy, where does your knowledge end? :P
