Hmmm... Your Hippowdon, have you considered making him a Physical Wall instead of a Sweeper? Also, I'd replace Crunch with Stone Edge -High Crit ratio, woot!- so you can easily take care of those pesky Flying types like Dragonite, Aerodactyl, Crobat, Zapdos, etc.

Hmmm... Your Cradily, I'd split the EV's 176 Sp. Def, 80 Def and use Curse instead of Amnesia. This will help him take those physical hits while still keeping his nice Sp. Def in the Sandstorm. Also, if you're using DW abilities *looks at Alakazam* then Storm Drain is the way to go.

Hmmm... Your Cacturne, I'd switch it's Leech Seed for Swords Dance, one boost from that turns your Sucker Punch (already a quite powerful priority move) into a ridiculous force to be reckoned with. Also, Seed Bomb is another option instead of Focus Punch; STAB as well as the Accuracy that FB lacks.

Hmmm... Your Registeel, I'd make it a Tank honestly, it's Defensive stats are very good while it's Offensive, not so much... If you were to change him into a Tank, Toxic could be another option instead of Thunder Wave but if you wanted to keep him the way he is, I'd say to use Ice Punch instead of Explosion as it's a difficult move to use correctly.

Huge Fighting weakness. Alakazam resists it but 55/45 base is doing nothing, CC breaks through that easily, it isn't a safe switch.

You're going to have to replace some pokemon. Nidoqueen counters Heracross fantastically, and most Mienshao sets and so does Gligar. Both fit into your team nicely as well. Machamp is problematic to most teams and Spiritomb is probably his best counter. Mismagius can also work, but as it has less bulk, it inherently takes more risk as well. Alakazam can force machamp out after a KO, but cannot switch in on any of it's moves, and Machamp is free to switch out on Alakazam. Another option is to put 252 Def on Hippo with roar, giving you a way to pseudo haze. I'm not a huge fan of this, as Hippo still can't touch Machamp and Heracross and it isn't a resist, but it should be passable

Also be on the watch for SubBulkup Hitmonchan, as you can't really phase on this team once an opponent subs.

Also you should put Dream World in the title, as Hippo is OU in standard play.

Yes I tried a physical wall but I like how my attacking Hippo runs lol he catches people off guard....but I didn't realize until Oscar pointed it out that Hippo is moved to BL now....so if I want a UU SS team I'll have to use hippowtas...any suggestions for that?

The cradilly idea sounds good so I may have to try that out.

So with cacturne pretty much switch it from a subseedpuncher to a sweeper? I'll also take that into consideration.

As for registeel I will probably turn him into a tank...i was trying to experiment around with different possible sets.

Was also considering a few other pokemon to help with the fighting type weakness Oscar mentioned. Thought about possibly adding either:

Spiritomb, Archeops, or Sigilyph to my team any thoughts about these possible additions as well?
