    Playing in the RU/LU tier. This team has carried me so far but I've hit a dead end. I win some and lose some and effictively go nowhere.

    The Stealth Rock Lead

    Regirock @ Leftovers

    Trait: Clear Body
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
    Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
    - Stealth Rock
    - Stone Edge
    - Thunder Wave
    - Earthquake

    Sets up Stealth Rock and paralyzes stuff. Usually survives two hits from unboosted stuff.

    The Sub + CM sweeper

    Mesprit @ Leftovers

    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Calm Mind
    - Substitute
    - Psyshock
    - Ice Beam

    Standard Sub + CM Mesprit Naturally bulky enough to take a couple of hits. Psyshock instead of Psychic because it often ends up in Calm Mind wars and Psychock kills them.

    The Bulky sweeper

    Venusaur (Torterra) (M) @ Leftovers

    Trait: Overgrow
    EVs: 252 HP / 56 Atk / 200 Def
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Wood Hammer
    - Stealth Rock
    - Earthquake
    - Synthesis

    He is supposed to just attack with eithe Wood Hammer or EQ and be a back up Stealth Rock user. Synthesis to heal of recoil. However he hasn't been working out so well. He gets walled by a lot of stuff especially the flyers which are common in this tier.

    The Physical Sweeper

    BirdWord (Swellow) (M) @ Toxic Orb

    Trait: Guts
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Protect
    - U-turn
    - Brave Bird
    - Facade

    He basically goes in and does as much damage as he can and then dies due to recoil/poison. Usually doesn't last more than 3 turns and takes out atleast one and hurst another. I could go for a speed boosting nature but his attacks don't hurt as much then.

    The Spinner

    Cradily (Armaldo) (M) @ Leftovers

    Trait: Battle Armor
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Rapid Spin
    - Stone Edge
    - X-Scissor
    - Earthquake

    The Spinner of the team though I could do with a better one. Having two SE and EQ users hurts my variety.

    The Cleaner

    Monster (Typhlosion) (M) @ Choice Scarf

    Trait: Blaze
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Eruption
    - Focus Blast
    - Hidden Power [Electric]
    - Fire Blast

    He cleans up stuff. Choice Scarf makes him fast enough that a speed boosting natures is usually excessive. Fire Blast and Eruption seems redundant but he needs a move not dependant on his HP.

    I've noticed the water weakness this team has and need something to deal with them.

    You can try rock polish and stone edge instead of sr and synthesis on torterra. change the spread to jolly/adamant, 252 atk/speed.

    @Ranger Jack Walker You have a couple of great physical attackers so you could probably change armaldo almost completely. Invest more in Defense evs and take them out of attack. Give armaldo stealth rock, or knock off, or both. Knock off is a good support move and can take out eviolites, leftovers, choiced items, etc.
