    Default RMT: Battlespot 3v3 Singles.

    I don't know how to do the pokemon sprites, so I'll just bold the names.

    As the title suggests, this team is designed for battle spot, the 3v3 singles format. The goal of the team is to use offensive pokemon, most of which can take a hit when switching in. I try to play by the smogon rules, and as such won't use Aegislash, Mega-Khan etc. I build this team by looking at the list of threats I encountered in Battlespot, and which pokemon gave me most trouble. Then I selected pokemon I thought were strong checks against those pokemon and would work well together. The plan is to soften the enemy team up with pokemon like Breloom, Tyranitar and Mamoswine, then wreck shop with one of my mega's. Im not the most experienced battler out there, so tips are very welcome. Please tell me what you think the weak points in this team set-up are, what pokemon, moves or items could/should be replaced and what you suggest to change it with.

    Item: Focus Sash
    Abillity: Technician
    Nature: Jolly
    Evs: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 Hp
    Mach Punch
    Bullet Seed
    Rock Tomb

    Breloom is used mostly as a lead. He is good against so many pokemon that people tend to lead with. He can spore anything slower than him, then take them out afterwards. Supereffective technician bullet seed puts a dent in Rotom-W, Mach Punch hits leads as Tyranitar, Greninja and Mamoswine hard and Rock Tomb destroys the ever present Talonflame, living the Brave Bird thanks to its focus sash.

    Item: Choice Scarf
    Abillity: Sand Stream
    Nature: Naive
    Evs: 252 Spe, 90 Atk, 166 Sp.Atk.
    Stone Edge
    Fire Blast
    Ice Beam

    My other lead. Choice Scarf outspeeds a lot of pokemon that don't expect it, including Adamant Talonflame, Infernape etc. and then knocks them out with his huge attack stat and strong moves. Sand Stream breaks sashes, which is nice. Fire Blast is there to destroy Ferrothorn, which would be a pretty big problem for my team otherwise. Ice Beam is mainly to take out Gliscor, but it works well against Garchomp & co. too. Tips on this are welcome: Would it be better to go full physical? Is there a better EV spread?

    Item: Life Orb
    Abillity: Thick Fat
    Nature: Naive
    Evs: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 Hp
    Ice Shard
    Icicle Spear

    Mamoswine is a monster. He has enough bulk to take a hit, especially on the physical side. Icicle spear destroys Focus Sash Garchomp, Multiscale Dragonite and most things weak to ice. Freeze-Dry is there to surprise (is it still surprising really?) switch ins like Rotom-W and Gyarados. Ice Shard for priority, Earthquake for a strong stab.

    Item: Expert Belt
    Abillity: Protean
    Nature: Timid
    Evs: 252 Sp.Atk., 252 Spe, 4 Hp
    Ice Beam

    This one is a bit odd. Since I already use Life Orb and Focus Sash, Greninja is holding an Expert Belt. He is mostly on this team as a Baton-Pass counter and a special cannon, as Im high on physical pokes. Hydro-Pump has shaky accuracy, but Greninja really needs the extra power. Ice Beam gives good coverage, Extrasensory is there to knock out Mega-Venussaur which is very common and very irritating. Haze is an odd move, but it is the main reason to bring this Greninja: It surprises and destroys the Baton Pass teams you see on Battlespot so much. I tend to keep this on the bench a lot; priority knocks the frail frog out very often, and he is mostly just worth it against Baton Pass teams or teams big on physical walls. Tips on this are welcome: Is this pokemon even worth the spot? Are there better Baton Pass counters?

    Item: Pinsirite
    Abillity: Mold Breaker
    Nature: Adamant
    Evs: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 Hp
    Quick Attack
    Swords Dance

    Pretty standard mega-Pinsir. Has the bulk to take a hit, and once it gets up a swords dance it's often Good Game. He also laughs at the mega-Venussaurs I keep seeing.

    Item: Gyaradosite
    Nature: Adamant
    Abillity: Intimidate
    Evs: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 Hp
    Dragon Dance
    Ice Fang

    Mega Gyarados is scary in battlespot. First of all, he brings the mind games because of his type-change when mega-evolving. Good predictions often land me a free Dragon Dance. Second, intimidate in combination with his natural bulk and typing makes him both a great switch in and easy to set up a Dragon Dance. Once a dance has been set up, there are many things Gyarados can destroy without a problem. Waterfall is main stab and has a trollish chance to flinch, Ice Fang destroys many dragons, but also Mega-Venussaur thanks to mold breaker. Earthquake nukes many pokemon, including Rotom-W (mold breaker strikes again) and Aegislash.

    Thanks in advance!

    I've tried a fully physical Tyranitar, but like you said, Ferrothorn is a big problem and I don't think fire fang is enough to deal with it even if you had it. I'm thinking fire punch might be better for a physical set, but it seems safer to go mixed.
