    Default Theme Team - Happy Purple Warriors

    Hey guys after a few years, it's good to be back. I'm by no means an expert and I aim to have fun, and I enjoy creating theme teams that can perform with some success, so here's my latest. It needs work. The theme? Purple.

    The Happy Purple Warriors

    Trait - Technician
    Item - Leftovers
    EVs - 252 attack, 124 speed, 124 hp

    * Fake Out
    * U-Turn
    * Brick Break
    * Thunder Wave

    The idea here is to deal some damage with a stabbed-technicianed Fake-Out, then paralyze, brick break, or run for it with U-Turn. I hope this is as annoying as I predict it will be. I was thinking maybe a stronger normal move over Brick Break?

    Trait - Synchronize
    Item - Scope Lens
    EVs - 252 spatt, 124 speed, 124 hp

    * Psychic
    * Grass Knot
    * Shadow Ball
    * Light Screen

    Some fun special attackage here. I'm a little dissatisfied with type coverage, but I think it's cool. Light screen for support, especially to go with Drifblim.

    Trait - Unburden
    Item - Liechi Berry
    EVs - 252 spatt, 124 def, 124 spdef

    * Shadow Ball
    * Thunderbolt
    * Will-o-Wisp
    * Baton Pass

    My hope, through Light Screen from Espeon and through Will-o-Wisp, is that Liechi Berry will activate. If it does, I'll pass the free agility and +attack to a sweeper.

    Trait - Sniper
    Item - Scope Lens
    EVs - 252 att, 124 hp, 124 speed

    * Night Slash
    * Cross Poison
    * Earthquake
    * Swords Dance

    I aim to sweep. Any advice?

    Trait - Dry Skin
    Item - ?
    EVs - ?

    * Stone Edge
    * X-Scissor
    * Cross Chop
    ?? I don't know.

    I ran out of ideas here. Should I make it a Choice Scarf user, maybe? I'm just happy that it absorbs water attacks with Dry Skin.

    Trait - Sand Veil
    Item - Choice Band
    EVs - 252 att, 252 speed

    * Earthquake
    * Outrage
    * Fire Fang
    * Stone Edge

    I really hope this thing kills stuff. Would it be wiser to make a set revolving around swords dance instead of choice Band?

    Basically, I need some advice, especially with my three physical sweeper-esque Pokes. I know my tactics may seem a little novel, but hey, uniqueness is half of life. Or something.

    And yes, I know Garchomp is, at best, only indigo.

    For Ambipom, if you're looking for a stronger normal move over brick break look no further than double hit. Even though the two attacks add up to 70 BP, it still gets a boost from technician since it counts as two separate 35BP attacks. That raises its BP to a whopping 105, throw in STAB on top of that and you can do some damage with it.

    Hey. Thanks for the input!

    Return has 102 base power, right? So it's nearly as effective as Double Hit, but won't miss, I figure. Would it be better to have this power-move instead of a type-covering move? I figure you're probably right and Return or Double Hit over Brick Break, and I'll U-Turn if I see a Rock or Steel.
