    You've got to post the natures and exact ev's please.
    Also there is reeeeally no point of dragon dance and swords dance, just one or the other

    Done.

    My reasoning for both dances is so that Axel can either outspeed or harshly outpower an opposing foe. Fun Guy gives him time to judge. So if I encounter an opposing Accelgor, I use Dragon Dance. If I see a Conkeldurr, I use Swords Dance. Besides, I don't see another good move for him, so...

    If at all possible, I'd recommend trying to fit a boosting move (if it can learn any) for Chandelure in sacrifice for Psychic. That's all I can really advise.

    Nah. Elesa doesn't have time to boost. Besides, Psychic can OHKO Emboar, among other things. Thanks for the advice, though. What's funny is that the people at Smogon suggest Flame Charge in place of Flamethrower.

    I'm not sure, but Cobalion probably won't be banned. What happens if you run into one of those? I'd run Dragon Claw, EQ, Brick Break, and Dragon Dance on Haxorus, that'll give you decent coverage, especially if you run into Balloontran. You DD a bunch of times, basically as many as you can, then you wreak havoc.

    Three things about that statement: One, Cobalion isn't banned. Only the "real' legendaries. Two, this is the VGCs. BallonTran is banned, as are all Pokemon from Bulbasaur to Arceus. And three, the tournaments are double, so I can't run EQ. But the Brick Break idea is good, so I may use that. Thanks.

    Balloontran is banned? Well, lol, I haven't been keeping up with VGCs. Though I've been thinking, why not DD, then use EQ with Protect on Amoongus?

    The species aren't bad, fairly well balanced, but the movesets seem pretty redundant. I'll just go through them in order, but first, could you post the abilities too? Also, you don't seem to be taking this too seriously. If you can't be bothered to breed or care about natures then you aren't going to do very well.
    The Smogonites were right too. 80 base speed isn't very high. Flame Charge would work very well.
    Lastly, what Thundagere said, change Haxy's moves around. Give it a Dragon or Ground Gem or a Life Orb. I most recommend the latter.
    I'd write more, but I mean, if you don't care too much about natures, then I don't care too much about helping you.
    (Gosh, that came out bitter T.T)
    Dream points: (I can finally say it!) OVER 9000!!
    If at first you don't succeed, kill it with fire.

    I'd agree, use Life Orb. After 1 EQ, I think the Gem gets consumed, and LO is very useful.

    I already have my team and only 12 days left. Besides, my team functions GREAT on RM. 11/0/1 streak, to be exact. I would have more, but people keep shutting off their games just as they lose.

    Anyway, I replaced Swords Dance with EQ, but I feel I need the Persim Berry for Outrage(the LO goes to Chandel).

    Second, I don't feel that Flame Charge works too well. I can't afford barely doing damage on a turn thanks to Chandel's poor attack just to raise a speed stat that already is exactly as fast as Haxorus.

    Thanks for the help, ppl! Keep it comming! ^^

    It's not just as fast, they are at quite different speeds.

    Much love to Zurr

    MINE is just as fast. :p

    Anyway, I feel that Smogon just "creates" Pokemon, and then takes more Pokemon, and makes it seem like those are the only Pokemon in existance. I mean, seriously? Stall teams? WTF are those? I'd rather just put together a sucessful team from my own brain. I've seen plenty of Choice Band Bullet Scizors on RM. Pwned them all with the right tactics and judgement.

    you say stall like you've never laddered up to 1400 and faced Kevin Garret or Earthworm. You wont be laughing at stall after that.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.
