Well, I'm concorned about Overheat because, it would reduce his special Attack. Why don't you replace 3 special attacks with Earthquake, Flamecharge & Body Slam. Also change the nature into Adamant. ( That's a suggestion )

Thank to Andy ^^. & prepare for tomorrow. I got my sig now I need Wartortle to evolve & pull the greatest prank![Image: pokemon_fushion_9_by_chaosmastermartin-d50jzoz.png]

What about Choice Scarf on Heatran? That's a very popular item to roll out on with Heatran. (This is before Air Balloon came out.)

Yea I've tried Choice Scarf as well and it works pretty good...but I think I'm leaning more towards air balloon now simply because I can change attacking moves ( I HATE BEING MOVE LOCKED)

And Blast, Heatran is a better special attacker than he is physical is why I have his move set as it is now....and I have overheat on him to do a ton of damage while he is in because normally when people see a Heatran then they send out a counter ASAP so he won't be fighting for long periods of time..maybe 1-2 turns at the most before he has to switch, making Overheat still a viable option. Also I have Fire Blast on the set as well when I know all of my opponents counters are down for the count Or when i plan on keeping him in for longer periods of time so I still have a powerful fire move without the drawbacks of Overheat

Same goes for Celebi as well. It's only attack move is Leaf Storm but it is used as more of a support/clerical Pokemon so it wont be in for long periods of time either....actually think Oscar had a set close to the one I'm using right now....might even be the same one cuz I don't remember -_- sorry if I stole your set Oscar and if I did then I hope you don't mind me using it XD

Like every other single gastroceletran core, you are swept by Scrafty. Scrafty doesn't care about status, sets up with impunity and then sweeps your team. Conkeldurr is Scrafty's biggest worry, all Scrafty sets worry about the fighting behemoth.

Your team also has trouble with Dragons. Why did you take SpDeftran out of the core? It counters every common variation of Volcarona, barring the spiteful hidden power ground ones (Those are rare, and specifically dedicated to taking out Heatran and Terrakion). It also provides a reliable and trustworthy switch into any Draco Meteor of the OU Meta.

Anyways, the best offensive Heatran I've found is the Flame Charge set. It's not too common, and lacks the unfortunate quality of being locked into a move. The next would probably be specs. Scarf doesn't provide enough oomf anymore, especially with all the rain.

Banded Haxorus kind of does the dirty with the team, 2hkoing or Ohkoing everything with Outrage and refusing to be KO'd by anything but a Modest Specstran's Hidden Power Ice.

The biggest problem I have, is with Snorlax, who I view as kind of dead weight on this team (No pun intended). He'd be the first I'd replace. You might want to consider Psychic on your Latias, as Conkeldurr, while not the huge threat to your team that Scrafty is, is very dangerous nonetheless and hates getting stab psychics to the face.

Skarmory also does a decent job at walling these physical threats, and I've used him on some of my Scrotom and Celetran cores.
