Rest > Sub. And no, this isn't a good lead since Metagross, Zapdos and Snorlax tend to lead and they all beat this

Dugtrio (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Arena Trap
EVs: 244 Atk / 216 Spd / 50 SDef
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Aerial Ace
- Earthquake
- Hidden Power [Bug]

- Aerial Ace
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Ice Beam

Use leftovers. HP flying > AA, and Thunder(bolt) is way better than IB. Use 241 speed

Swellow (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Guts
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Aerial Ace
- Facade
- Return
- Steel Wing

HP ground > Steel wing

Magneton @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 40 HP / 228 Spd / 240 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Hidden Power [Grass]
- Metal Sound
- Thunder Wave

Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Drill Peck

Max HP always
Big problems against Tyranitar, specially sub variations. You'll also have load of troubles against Zapdos

not really much defense against anything special. don't use shell bell. Swellow is sort of out of place here. Not too good of a sweeper, max speed jolly isn't needed. I only use Swellow outside of BL/UU to CB Sweep after absorbing a toxic. Needs HP Ground or even Double Edge > Return. I think you could be fine with Adamant and QA > Steel Wing, it's only a filler and it's still real fast and can beat reversallers. IIRC Dugtrio needs 88 S Def EVs to survive Modest Ice Beam Blisseys Ice Beam. Also that Articuno needs to be alive to do it's job so not too great of a lead. I'd go HP Fire on Maggy because you don't want any other maggys in your way.

Swellow or Dragonite are really the closest things you have to a lead tbh; nothing on this team really leads well at all.
