Default Rate my Sandstorm team

I made one to try it out. Just Rate it and post if you see anything wrong with it.

Hippowdon
@Leftovers
Nature: Impish
Ev Spread: 252 Hp, 252 Def, 4 Spec Def

Stone Edge
Earthquake
Slack Off
Yawn

Kind of like a wall and my lead because his ability sets up Sandstorm. Yawn is to force switches I guess

Bronzong
@Wide Lens
Nature: Relaxed
EV: 252 HP, 144 Sp Def, 94 Def, 20 Attk
Ability Levitate

Gyro Ball
Hypnosis
Trick Room
Dream Eater

Support pokemon. Trick Room also lets my really slow pokemon attack first which is nice. Hypnosis to shut down people and Dream Eater is my recovery move. Unless you have something better for it.

Garchomp
@Life Orb
Nature: Adamant
Ev: 252 Speed, 252 Attack

Dragon CLaw
Earthquake
Fire Blast
Swords Dance

My Physical Sweeper. I know Adamant isnt really good for it, but even if it is the fastest in my team, if Trick Room is in effect and Im going up against faster enemies like Weavile, I should hopefully be able to go first

Skarmory
@Left Overs
Nature: Impish
Ev: 252 Def, 252 Hp, 6 Sp Def

Drill Peck
Roar
Stealth Rock
Roost

Wall and Stealth Rocker as well as phazer. Thats it.

Tyranitar
@ Choice Band
Nature: Brave
Ev: 252 Attk, 60 Hp, 196 Def

Stone Edge
Earthquake
Crunch
Focus Punch

Another Sandstormer as well as physical sweeper. I decided to go with brave because hopefully Trick Room from Bronzong is still in play. Even if it isnt, I can still take a few hits with my Def and my extra Sp Def boost from Sandstorm.

Rhyperior
@??? Tell me what I should have
Nature: Adamant
Ev: 252 Attk, 252 Hp, 6 Def

Stone Edge
Avalanche
Earthquake
Swords Dance

Once again hopefully Trick Room is still in play. If I am faster, I will Sword Dance, then rip apart with my other 3 moves. Sandstorm can give it the Sp Def boost even if it wont help much.

Thats all.

Fine, Standard. Ice Fang>Yawn/Stone Edge might be beneficial.

Bronzong
@Wide Lens
Nature: Relaxed
EV: 252 HP, 164 Sp Def, 94 Def
Ability Levitate

Gyro Ball
Hypnosis
Trick Room
Reflect/Light Screen/Stealth Rocks

Hypnosis/DE fails. Reflect or Light or Stealth Rocks would be much much much much better.

Garchomp
@Life Orb
Nature: Adamant
Ev: 252 Speed, 252 Attack 4HP

Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Fire Blast
Swords Dance

Adamant is fine

My Physical Sweeper. I know Adamant isnt really good for it, but even if it is the fastest in my team, if Trick Room is in effect and Im going up against faster enemies like Weavile, I should hopefully be able to go first

Skarmory
@Leftovers
Nature: Impish
Ev: 252 Def, 252 Hp, 6 Sp Def

Drill Peck
Roar
Spikes
Roost

Leftovers is one word. And Spikes>Stealth Rocks seeing as very few things get it.

Wall and Stealth Rocker as well as phazer. Thats it.

Tyranitar
@ Choice Band
Nature: Brave
Ev: 252 Attk, 60 Hp, 196 Def

Stone Edge
Earthquake
Pursuit
Focus Punch

Pursuit to beat Spec'd Gengars/Azelfs/Alakazams if you switch into Psychic/Shadow Ball. You might want to put in some speed.

Rhyperior
@Leftovers/Expert Belt/Choice Band
Nature: Adamant
Ev: 252 Attk, 252 Hp, 6 Def

Stone Edge
Avalanche
Earthquake
Swords Dance/Megahorn

I hate you if you give this Lightning Rod. Megahorn is for Choice Band

Once again hopefully Trick Room is still in play. If I am faster, I will Sword Dance, then rip apart with my other 3 moves. Sandstorm can give it the Sp Def boost even if it wont help much.

Thats all.
IMO you could use Swampert/Jirachi/Magnezone>Hippowdon/Bronzong.
Swampet because you could use a bulky water, mixedpert beats most of the common walls that resist s SS. Jirachi would be able to give T-tar/Rhyperior/Garchomp some Wishes and with Charge Beam it can beat Skarm easily. Magnezone's only purpose would be to beat Skarm/Zong, both of which wall your entire team right now, except Garchomp, though he could go down to a Hypnosis from Zong.

Well on Serebii's forums, I did another RMT there for more help, and they said Heatran is a good choice for a special sweeper, as well as it can take out Skarmory and Bronzong. Plus it will get effected by Trick Room. But he suggested dropping Garchomp for it. Im dropping Hippowdon for Swampert though, tell me what you think about Heatran

Heatran
@Choice Specs
Rash Nature
EV: 252 Sp Def, 48 attk, 208 speed

Flamethrower
Dragon Pulse
Earth Power
Explosion

Special sweper, takes out Skarm and Zong like you mentioned, has the fire/dragon combo too which is only resisted by enemy Heatrans which Earth power takes care of.

It's pretty good, but here's the moveset on most common Bronzongs(mine):

Hypnosis
Explosion
Substitute
Stealth Rock


Garchomp
@Life Orb
Nature: Adamant
Ev: 252 Speed, 252 Attack

Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Fire Blast/Flamethrower(It has way better accuracy)
Swords Dance

Thats all.

I'd probably run, HP Grass>Dragon Pulse, but otherwise its fine. You wont need any SPeed if you want to take advantage of Trick Room, so you woul;d probalby want those EVs in HP, and a Quiet Nature.
