Really there arent a lot changes cus im coming back to this game. As I said the first time in forum, maybe this is a horrible team or worst, but would be helpful if you give me some tip to be better. Thanks!!

I see the problem, your team has no synergy whatsoever. Why are you carrying a Noctem reserved Pokémon in Delta Roserade without it’s weather? What the heck are you trying to do with 2 Mega in your team? Don’t forget rule #1: Only carry 1 Mega. Your Lucky Egg has no point in being here, get rid of that. It’s the champion, you will need a real strategy to beat it, let alone sweep.

Something I really want you to explain are the EV spread. What exactly do they allow you to do? How did you calculated how much you put where?

If you ever want to sweep Reukra, you have two things to keep in Mind:

  1. Speed. Shadow Mewtwo has 130 base speed, so having a Pokémon that boost its speed, even by one stage, is mandatory to outspeed and OHKO it. It’s that or strong Priority.
  2. Shadow Mewtwo has Intimidate. So, aside from a Pokémon behind a Substitue or who has Hyper Cutter or Clear Body, any physical attacker will somewhat suffers.

About the team, Garchomp’s special attack is too weak to use Flamethrower, so Fire Blast instead but then again, Reukra has no Fire weak Pokémon. It is also easy picked off by Shadow Mewtwo and Mega Flygon, so it maybe won’t be your main Sweeper.

If you are using Mega Delta Scizor (who could be your main Sweeper if you manage Delta Haxorus), always use Ice Shard instead of Psycho Cut because it way to slow. You don’t need the accuracy boost either, pick Swords Dance. If you setup Sticky Web with something like Armored Leavany, then all Pokémon who can take a boosted Ice Shard aside from D.Volcarona are outsped and solidly OHKO by Close Combat.

Delta Roserade has no reason to be here.

Not sure if Toxic Spikes are that vital here, Delta Luxray could be switched out.

Without Prankster, Delta Greninja loose it’s main attrait. Use a Protean Greninja or maybe a Choice Scarf D.Gardevoir with Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Moonblast and Earth Power.

Since Reukra don’t carry Ghost types or Protect, you can use High Jump Kick on Blaziken without much trouble. Reukra’s team is too offensive to use Swords Dance, you could be better using a Coverage move.

And if i want to keep Delta Roserade, would i switch my Delta Luxray for a Spiritomb with noctem? Also, im coming back to this game, so i didnt think a lot in my strategy.

Give your Roserade an ability capsule, Shadow Dance will be nice. I recommend a Choice Specs set with Moonblast, Dark Pulse/Lunar Canon, Heat Wave and Thunderbolt.

Delta Typhlosion could be an interesting mega to use thanks to its ability working in New Moon.

Spiritomb will be a great lead against Reukra as it will activate Noctem last and burn TTar easily.

But, what moves i have to teach to my dlt typhlosion?

Thunderbolt, Flash canon and whatever else. Dark Pulse is an option, but it doesn’t hit any relevant targets in Reukra’s team.
