Also some mini Knowledge: Perseus cant tank well for me.
and should i switch Neville or keep him?

First of all, EV train all your pokemon, it will make a huge difference.

Change Simon, his nature is Modest, which is -Atk, +SpA. Find another Excadrill, it is good if you want to use it. Excadrill EVs are 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 Def. Why run Swords Dance on a Scarf Set?

D-Gardevoir Should run 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 SpD. Choice Specs or Scarf is more useful with BoltBeam Psy(Moon/Focus)Blast. Calm Mind sets run Focus Miss BoltBeam. It can also run Energy/Shadow Ball, Flash Cannon, and Earth Power for coverage.

Eevee runs 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 252 HP. Calm is -Atk, +SpD, so run a full special set with Psychic, Moonblast, BoltBeam. You can change out Psy Blast for other special moves for coverage.

Remove D-Bisharp, it is not a tank. Use D-Snorlax, running 244 HP, 252 SpD, 8 Atk. Hopefully Careful or Adamant Nature. Run Leftovers Belly Drum Synthesis/Drain Punch EQ and Seed Bomb.

Next Step is a physical tank, to replace Empoleon. For a Fighting Type, Scrafty can run Bulk Up Rest Drain Punch Knock Off with the Ability Shed Skin which helps it recover from statuses faster and Leftovers. Impish Nature preferred. Hippowdon is a great physical tank that will boost Excadrill, whether using Sand Force or it’s superior ability, Sand Rush. Hippowdon runs Impish Nature @Leftovers with Earthquake Stealth Rock Whirlwind and Recover/Slack Off (Forgot which one he has.) 252 Hp and 252 Def with 4 in SpD. Water types tanks are Delta Torterra, Unaware Quagsire, Regenerator Slowbro. Go look those sets up and D-Torterra. Run Impish with 244 HP, 252 Def, and 8 Atk. Earthquake , Razor Shell/Aqua Tail, Aqua Jet, Stealth Rock, Aqua Ring/Dragon Tail/Iron Head/Seed Bomb. D-Aggron and Meta are optioons, but I won’t go over those.

Yeah this is good. I’ll switch out Simon ,Perseus and Neville . I do have a Delta Frosslass. If you have a set for her I could use it. And I’ll try to hunt for a Delta Torterra if I can find one . Thanks :slight_smile: . Oh and before I forget. These are some extra members

Delta Noivern
Delta Frosslass
Delta Chandelure

Mega Typhlosion is a masterpiece! Also D. Torterra is only available in the post game @odditystarry101

Well crud so any suggestions

Well, you can go ask for a Delta turtwig in the #online:trading section

I can also breed you one when I catch it

No it’s ok . Im a begginer and I wanna play by a fair game

Okie, that is for the best, probably. A fair game is always a better one. Well, you could use a better water type, like Swampert or an Unaware Quagsire( Like @ezlaturbo said)

Well I do have a Mudkip. Welp I should probably train him up to level 88. But that leaves 1 out 3 team members subbed

Well, I am not the best at strategies, so I don’t think I can help right now. Good luck

Thanks :slight_smile: :grinning:

Ok I may have a plan
Neville Sub

Ice Punch

Perseus Sub
D. Frosslass

Dazzling Gleam

Simon Sub
DRakon Voice
Dark Pulse
Sludge Bomb

The idea was to have 2 tanks, pokemon who can take hits but deal massive damage themselves, Belly Drum D-Snorlax is way better than Frosslass, D-Munchlax can be caught in a Hidden Grotto in Route 8. Also, on Swampert, replace Surf with or Superpower with Stealth Rocks, extremely helpful in the Hail and Baton Pass members. Quagsire or Slowbro are still better tanks tho. D-Pidgeot is fine, would run Intimidate Dragon Dance for non mega, as it has a higher physical attack, tho which set (phys or special) depends on Nature. Mega can run the aforementioned set with Modest or Timid, but it is redundant if you run D-Frosslass. Adamant is the preferred nature for non Mega D-Pidgeot, running Dragon Dance, Draco Jet/Outrage/Dragon Claw, Sucker Punch, Poison Jab(for fairies)/U-Turn(damaging switch out)/Roost(longevity).

So, 2 tanks would greatly help your team, especially in the E4, being able to break through opponent teams whuile living hits or living hits from other pokemon for your sweepers is very useful.

Would Delta Avalugg be a viable tank cuz I do have one trained up to Lv60

Physical tank? Yes, however, not a special tank. D-Snorlax is a special tank to switch into special attacking pokemon. Forgot to say earlier that its ability should be Thicc Fat. You could use Unaware or Magic Guard Clefable @Leftovers as a special tank with Moonblast Cosmic Power Stored Power and Flamethrower. Unaware could be helpful against Kayla. Eviolite Chansey or Blissey are stally special walls, if you don’t mind that playstyle.
