@WhatIsAUsername: Your dragonite could take physical hits like a boss with multiscale and with roost keeping him at full hp, you could laugh as the enemy was killing themselves with the rocky helmet. I just thought it was cool because everyone is running weakness policy haha. Weakness policy + multiscale really is pretty much the best
combo though.

Aww I see you took roost of your dragonite Might as well just give it weakness policy now.

GJ with the wide lens on Gengar and keeping it unique to yourself with your hypnosis + hex combo haha. I personally never like to rely on low acc moves lol.

Dragonite should be weakness policy honestly. I would always use weakness policy on dragonite myself though this is your team not mine; rocky helmet works fine too, not very common. (jolly 252 attk/speed and 4 hp) is what i use. Extreme speed works WONDERS for revenge kill if needed. I got couple extra dratinis with extreme speed/aqua jet
Gengar black sludge/focus sash.
Scizor is fine i guess (choice band/life orb) Band bullet punch hurts if its not resisted =P. Though this is ur defogger so.... interesting... life orb i guess...? not too sure i dont use scizor outside of mega. https://www.smogon.com/bw/pokemon/scizor/ou =P google is always good
Not too familiar with magnezone so idk, seems weird with the item. (looks like they helped you)
Swampert, Looking at your moveset Leftovers.
Overall pretty solid team, just the items are weird to me. Love your moveset on swampert, gotta make one now =P
I'll be back after game of thrones =P so give me a shout out if need anymore, or i'll check back later[/quote]
yeah idk. i dont have many items so i just randomly threw on what i have. i started doing battle masion though. so i'll be able to grab some stuff from that.
going to replace the roost with extreme speed. i've been using this team for hours and haven't used roost once.

Run Gengar like this

Gengar @ Focus Sash
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 S.atk 252 Spe
Nature: Timid/Modest
-Shadow Ball
-Focus Blast
-Filler
-Filler

This takes advantage of Gengar's Speed and S.Atk as well as it's horrific defense stats and gives you a second chance. Pretty much Gengar will like to go down 1 for 1 or even just revenge kill if it needs to. The Gengar your using could faint first hit if your Hypnosis doesn't hit or if they wake up and they hit you. Gengar pretty much always goes down being OHKO'd and you want to fix that using the Focus Sash to patch up the weakness and make it so he had a higher likely hood for him to survive.

i changed it to this

Gengar @ Wide Lens
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 S.atk 252 Spe
Nature: Timid/Modest
-Hex
-Nightmare
-Hypnosis
-Mean Look

I love the sleeping then hex combo, I don't care much for the risk. 70% chance is good enough for me. the nightmare and mean look plan was better on paper though. trying it out makes me realize that they aren't put to sleep long enough for me to use all those moves. I'll replace one of them with Focus Blast, then I'll have one open spot for something else. maybe giga drain or thunder bolt?

@HobosCanFly yea, but i do a mix of both though so it's meh whatever.

[quote=coldfirexz]Rocky Helmet + Roost Dragonite is pretty cool man. <3

Eviolite doesn't work with a fully evolved pokemon, so you should switch that out for maybe a life orb.

Swampert would probably be better with a leftovers, as I see he is your defense tank.

Scizor's speed evs should probably be placed on another stat, hp or def. This is because with the moveset you
gave him he would be sweeping with bullet punch which gives u priority anyways.
The 252 atk evs on gengar is probably a typo, but for his moveset I would switch hex out for shadow ball,
smog out for sludge bomb and big root changed for life orb. Big root + Dream Eater is pretty cool, but gengar
will most likely get 1 shot, so 1 shot everything before that happens [/quote]
ok thanks a lot. i will take your advice, and yeah that was a typo. any suggestion for a new item for scizor? since i'm going to give swampert the leftovers.
