I'd really like to have this team at its highest potential, so anything you have to contribute would be appreciated. Considering I just made this team now, I know there is a lot wrong with it, so I come to you to help me make it better. So yea, heres the team.

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa376.png @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 52 HP / 252 Atk / 204 Spe
Jolly nature (+Spe, -SpA)
- Meteor Mash
- Earthquake
- Ice Punch
- ThunderPunch

Pretty cool lead. Hits **** hard and is a nice revenge killer.

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa260.png @ Leftovers
Ability: Torrent
EVs: 252 HP / 180 Def / 76 SpD
Careful nature (+SpD, -SpA)
- Rest
- Sleep Talk
- Curse
- Waterfall

Really solid status absorber while at the same time a potent threat. Considering switching it to maybe just a MixPert for more reliability and so I can have a Stealth Rocker.

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa448.png @ Life Orb
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant nature (+Atk, -SpA)
- Swords Dance
- Close Combat
- Extreme Speed
- Crunch

Very dangerous mid- to late-game sweeper. Honestly I have trouble building an OU team without this guy. Love 'm to death.

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa094.png @ Life Orb
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 136 Atk / 120 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty nature (+Spe, -Def)
- Explosion
- Shadow Ball
- Focus Blast
- Thunderbolt

Heres where the fun comes in. Draws out Blissey or their other special wall and blows up. Clearing the path for my last two Pokémon.

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa243.png @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 64 HP / 96 SpA / 96 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid nature (+Spe, -Atk)
- Substitute
- Calm Mind
- Thunderbolt
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Awesome Calm Minder. Once Blissey is out of the picture, it's really only a matter of time before I can pull off a sweep. Just gotta be patient for the right time to set up and... done.

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpmfa/dpmfa469.png @ Petaya Berry
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest nature (+SpA, -Atk)
- Substitute
- Bug Buzz
- Air Slash
- Hidden Power [Ground / Ice]

Yanmega is my real last resort sweeper. Even if Yanmega is my last Pokémon left, I know I still have a shot. This guy really rocks.

On the Yanmega, choose Hidden Power Ice over Hidden Power ground.

Meh, without HP Ground you just give Heatran means to switch in and start Fire Blasting stuff.

This team has a lot of trouble switching into Azelf, and you really need to be careful with stuff like Choice EQ on Metagross or Rest/Sleep Talk on Swampert, as Azelf is going to be happy to come in and NP. The Choice Scarf set can also present you with a lot of troubles, although it's possible to outmaneuver this set, as you can any choiced mon.

I think MixPert would be a better choice over the Swampert you have now. Someone using Vaporeon will screw you over so hard, since you just gave them time to Wish/set up a Sub or do whatever they want. With MixPert you also get another Ice attack on your team, which is always welcome.

I really dislike the idea of Explosion on Gengar. IMO with three ground weaknesses, an immunity on your team is very, very valuable. Yes, Yanmega counts, but it'll only get you so far with its SR weakness, and that set is more designed for late game anyways. Right now if Garchomp starts spamming Earthquake, you sort of just...die.

Hypnosis over Explosion would be nice, as you don't have to kill your own Pokemon and sleep is always a valuable status effect.

For Azelf, I'd probably have to switch to Swampert and then / or Metagross. If I bring in Pert, I can easily get Metagross in and KO with Meteor Mash on their Grass Knot. As for Explosion on Gengar... It's kinda the strategy I am using. Draw out their Special Wall and blow up. Heatran can't come in, as it is a common special wall, but fears Focus Blast.

I'm going to have a big testing session to decide whether I should carry on with this team or completely trash it. Thanks for the help Fire Away!
