alright well in the wi-fi battle tower i was at rank 9 but then i made a subtle change to my team went down to rank 7 and now can't get back up.

my original team was http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpiconani/dpiconani485.gif http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpiconani/dpiconani130.gif http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpiconani/dpiconani445.gif


Heatran@choice scarf
timid 252 sp.atk/252 spd/4 hp
~Earth Power
~Lava Plume
~Flame Thrower
~Dragon Pulse

Heatran was my speedy lead able to mow most things down with his sp.atk stat only problem was his massive weakness to fighting and ground, hence...


Adamant 252 atk/252 spd/4 hp
~Stone Edge

I just love switching this guy in on scarfed earthquake chomps. Completely dodges grounds and take negligble damage from fighting and with a couple DD's can sweep most entire teams whole. Also my bulky water counter as he can normally hold his own, except for starmies which as you may have noticed rape my entire team whole


Garchomp@yache berry
Jolly 252 atk/252 spd/4 hp
~Swords Dance
~Fire Fang
~Dragon Claw

Counters the electric weakness of gyrados and while he is not normally needed he gets the job done when called upon.

So this got to rank 9 no problem but then i switched garchomp with my mamoswine (i don't really like garchomp, he gets the job done but meh.)


Mamoswine@choice band
Adamant 252 atk/252 hp
~Stone Edge
~Ice fang
~Ice shard

Now i gave him 252 hp hoping for a slightly more long lasting mamo, and so far i haven't come across a time when more speed would have been helpful. As for the choice band, normally i don't like having too many choice items on a team but a choice banded and STAB'ed ice shard does iinsane damage so i'm hesistant to switch it with a life orb.

Now my question is what can i do with my mamo to help my team go back up the ranking, i'd really rather not put back in garchomp but if you have other suggestions i'm open to that as well.
