Well, I was never into competitive battling but now I feel like joining in. I had a team on PO before but it would always loose. It's a dragon team. So if you guys can help me figure out what the problem with the team is and how to use it properly that would be great.

I feel as if you only have one way to counter Starmie since Haxorus is the only thing scarfed and can outspeed it. Hazards will also hurt you badly. As it is a dragon team, I'd still insert a some type of spinner. It can aid this team very well.

Okay, how about we move the team away from being a dragon type team but like keep an aspect of dragon types left in the team. Like have a dragon type on the team, and you said a spinner, so which spinner, stats, all of that. And which pokemon would it replace?

Honestly I don't know if I need a lot of help because I battled 3 battles on here and I believe I won 2/3 of them might be 3/3 but if you guys can make it better then thanks.

How can you not know if you won one of those battles or not? Wow.

Starmie walks all over you. Opposing Dragon-types with Dragon Dance won't care once they get a couple of boosts up. You need Steel-types if you're bent on keeping it as a Dragon-type team, which leads me back to my previous post - 4Drag2Mag.

I forgot if I beat bordeaux or not. Anyway, so I need to add two steel types? Which steal types and which pokemon should I replace for them?

I won our battle and I'd say only one steel type and then a compliment to it. Forretress or Ferrothorn seems like your best options are far as steel types go. You can argue Skarmory.

Epic. You choose a steel type pokemon that cannot actually defeat Starmie. Forretress might resist dragon and ice, but it's not an actual counter to dragon types or water types that carry ice beam.

Jirachi can wish protect and Magnezone can magnet pull.

Rotom-W is decent with wish protect Jirachi and loves passed wishes. Volt Switch maintains the offensive momentum. Some other bulky water with Ice beam would be good too. Slowbro, Empoleon, Starmie *cough*

Replace Hydreigon, Salamence and Kingdra with them.
