Hey, I am pretty new to competitive battling. I have been collecting some good pokemon, but I am entering a tournament, and I need some input. Please point out any major weaknesses I might have. (type weaknesses, stats, whatever) And maybe suggest movesets if the ones I have are crappy. My team is mostly Sweepers. I have two Special Atk Sweepers, and two Attack Sweepers. I am going to have two tanks. One as a sheer defensive pokemon, and one as a status inflictor. (Blissey, With Thunder Wave, Stealth Rock, and Toxic)

Fixes in BOLD.

You have less of a weakness to Ground-type attacks now.

Yes, but on a tank like registeel it raises defense, and attack. Plus, with the combination rest and sleep talk, it's very good. It's all about your battle style.

Overall it looks a good team

I think Tyranitar needs work:

A bulkier DD Ttar would work, looking for 2 DDs:

Impish 252 EVs in HP and Defence
DD, Taunt, EQ,SE

Or a more fragile one, that can sweep off one DD:

Adamant 252 Evs in Att and Speed
Pursuit replacing Taunt

You could even use Flamethrower or Tbolt for Skarmory or other Steel types with better SAtt obviously. The sandstorm could also be a problem or you could utilise it by using a Spiker/Stealth Rocker that is steel (ie Skamory) or is also rock to benefit from the SDef boost


Furthermore if your using Electivire use the PBR one

EQ, Cross Chop, Ice Punch, Thunderbolt> Thunderpunch

And why not use Gyarados its combo with Electivire is awesome,use Gydos to induce Electric attacks and switch to activate motor drive on your max attack Electivire for brilliant sweeping potential

Gyarados @ Choice Scarf
Lonely 252 Att 100 Spd 152 Sp Att

EQ, Thunder(bolt), Ice Beam, Waterfall



Also I think a few of your stats are wrong (those are Electivires max and Ttar has different EVs to those stated)

I'm acually getting rid of a few pokemon. I am thinking of replacing Electivire with Weavile, and I am replacing Salamence with Alakazam. I have a Weakness to Dark type moves right there, but I have a wide variety of movesets now.

Don't use Gengar and Alakazam,

Porygon-Z is a better option as a special sweeper (in this team)

Focus Sash/Life Orb Adaptability
Timid 252Sp A 252 Speed 4 HP
Tbolt, Ice Beam, Nasty Plot, Tri Attack

I've been thinking of replacing Gengar with Porygon-z. I mean, with porygon z, only 1 type is super effective. Tri-Attack is just a pwnsome move anyway. Thanks for your opinion on the subject. I have been testing my Alakazam though, and it is pretty good. It has about 370 Sp. Atk, and Speed, which is better than Gengar, and after a Calm Mind, it's great. It just can't stand up to about any Physical attack though... But I can improvise with that. I'll try to get a Timid Porygon Z.

How is P-Z better? Gengar is immune to fighting and ground, and if you've noticed, this team is going to have those attacks directed at them a lot. Gengar has more speed and more opportunities to switch in. :\

I didn't suggest that Porygon-Z was a better overall pokemon,
I just think that the team would have more balance, as Alakazam and Gengar have similar weaknesses and type coverage

No do not use porygon z over gengar on this team!!!! As fire away has said gengar has 3 imunitys wich are fighting, normal and ground. Blissey and tyranitar are both weak to fighting moves and tyranitar, electivire and registeel are weak to ground type wich gengar can happy switch into with no worrys whilst porygon z will be not be able to take these attacks away from your pokemon, so not porygonz is not a more useful pokemon overall.
