Ok so I have been experimenting with several new teams and would like some advice on my most recent one!

Muchlax @ Evolite @ Careful @ Thick Fat
EVs: 136 hp, 124 def, 248 sp def (Thinking about moving these around a little bit)
Curse
Body Slam
Earthquake
Rest

Galvantula @ Life Orb @ Timid @ Compoundeyes
EVs: 252 sp att, 252 spd, 4 hp
Thunder
Bug Buzz
Energy Ball
Hidden Power Ice

Whimsicott @ Leftovers @ Impish @ Prankster
EVs: 252 hp, 252 def, 4 sp def
Leech Seed
Substitute
Encore
Stun Spore (Considering switching for Taunt)

Whimsicott is my teams weakest link right now in my opinion and would really like some suggestions for a possible replacement.

Sigilyph @ Flame Orb @ Timid @ Magic Guard
EVs: 252 hp, 240 spd, 16 def
Cosmic Power
Roost
Stored Power
Psycho Shift (considering switching for hidden power fighting to catch dark types switch ins thinking they can force a switch)

Cofagrigus @ Leftovers @ Bold @ Mummy
EVs: 252 hp, 252 def, 4 sp def
Calm Mind
Rest
Hidden Power Fighting
Shadow Ball

Torn between two pokemon for my last slot...so I'll post both and see what you guys think is the best choice.

Sharpedo @ Life Orb @ Adamant @ Speed Boost
EVs: 252 Att, 124 spd, 64 def, 68 sp def
Waterfall
Crunch
Earthquake
Protect

OR

Crawdaunt @ Leftovers @ Jolly @ Adaptability
EVs: 252 att, 252 spd, 4 hp
Dragon Dance
Waterfall
Crunch
Substitute

Would love any and all comments on this team along with replacement options, moveset advice, and even a new battle strategy if this one isn't working.

Thanks in advance!

Since Munchlax is normal, move more EV's to it's Defense Stat.

I'd switch Stun Spore for Taunt, and use that to prevent any trap moves that can be used by RU teams.

I'd put HP Fighting on Sigilyph like you're saying to do indeed catch Dark-types off-guard.

And I'd use Crawdaunt for your 6th Pokemon. Waterfall's power would be increased tenfold after a few Dragon Dances.

The reason I don't have a lot of def ev's on munchlax is because it is a curselax set and curse is used to equal out the defenses Tongue

And I will probably switch stun spore for taunt because if it gets taunted then it is screwed -_-

My idea exactly Tongue

And the only problem with Crawdaunt is those god awful hp and defensive stats.....so I planned on bringing him in after one of my other pokes is KO'd by a Pokemon he can normally KO easily, use sub as the opponent switches to a counter, then as the sub takes a hit and breaks use DD, and HOPEFULLY he will be fast enough to outspeed and hit hard


I appreciate the comment RD Smile any body else have some?

Crawdaunt should be speedy enough to outspeed your competition after a few Dragon Dances and Waterfall's power is increased because DD goes really well with physical attacks, as Waterfall falls under that category.

The speed it gets from DD should be enough to oversee the shoddy HP and Defensive stats (unless your facing a Fighting type, you won't have to worry a lot about your Defenses, moreso Sp. Defenses).

It's base speed is 55 -_- which is why I gave it a +spd nature and his defenses probably won't let him survive long enough to get in multiple DD's which is why I'm REALLY hoping that just 1 DD will be enough to outspeed several pokemon Tongue

Well, this is an RU team, so I would say you'd be able to outspeed some of the RU Pokemon you'll face.

I don't know, I like Sharpedo for revenge killing. You already have Confagrigus, Sigilyph and Munchlax for sweepers. Also I know that you don't like Whimsicott, but consider that it actually counters pretty much every single pokemon that needs to set up to sweep, including Crawdaunt, Munchlax and Confagrigus. Whimsicott is good fit for people that like to turn pokemon matches into guessing games. Setting up at the wrong time can spell disaster, and the proverbial mind match can cause people to make irrational decisions. Sceptile is a good replacement, but Whimsicott is arguably the best subseeder in the tier.

Also you have a big rock weakness that you haven't covered. Hariyama is probably my favorite rock resist in the tier, though Gallade comes in at a close second.

Also always dump your leftover evs into HP before either defensive stat, it improves bulk.

I definitely see where you are coming from with Whimiscott....and you are right about the fact that I really don't like using it Tongue but it does have it's uses that's for sure..

Hmm I actually thought I covered my rock weakness with energy ball, 2 HP fighting, earthquake, and waterfall....so I'm not really understanding where I haven't covered my weakness to it...unless you are just talking about a pokemon that resists rock in which case wouldn't Cofagrigus be suitable? I know he doesn't RESIST rock but with his high bulk shouldn't he be able to to shrug off the hit?

And with the EVs I assume you are talking about on my munchlax and sharpedo?
