Starmie needs Life Orb over Expert Belt for more power, and Hydro Pump to dent Reuniclus better. I am going to have to argue with you about that: one of Starmie's purposes is to spin, and he doesn't survive for long with Life Orb. Hydro Pump over Scald makes sense, though.


Virizion @ Life Orb/Leftovers
Nature: Jolly
Effort Values: 252 Atk/252 Spe/4 Hp

~ Leaf Blade
~ Swords Dance
~ Close Combat
~ HP [Ice]/Stone Edge
I think Virizion is a good idea, no questions asked, but if I may suggest an alternative:

Breloom @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
Nature: Adamant
Effort Values: 252 Atk/244 Spe/12 Hp

~ Spore
~ Substitute
~ Focus Punch
~ Seed Bomb

Breloom has the same type synergy with Starmie and Volcarona, more power, and, in the long run, much more survivability (especially since Virizion is running Close Combat. Seed
Bomb keeps Jellicent from slaughtering me.

Dugtrio @ Focus Sash
Nature: Jolly
Effort Values: 252 Atk/252 Spe/4 Hp

~ Sucker Punch
~ Stealth Rock Problem solved. I was starting to get worried about my lack of entry hazrds. Thanks.
~ Earthqauke
~ Reversal

Gastrodon @ Leftovers
Nature: Calm
Effort Values: 252 Hp/252 SDef/4 SAtk

~ Recover
~ Toxic
~ Scald
~ Ice Beam/Earth Power
Fair enough, although, considering the fact that he's packing Toxic, shouldn't Scald be Surf for more power?
You do have good suggestions. Thanks
