I need counter-fairy coverage in this team. Any suggestions?

Hey, there. Since that last topic I made went horribly wrong and made me look like a tier-whore, even though I didn't even know what that meant at the time. After much research, I can understand why anyone would think I'm part of some bandwagon with my team, but I like it a lot and I'll keep using it until I can get my original SS/HG team.

Anyway, my team as of now is:

- Charizard: Solar Beam, Flamethrower, Dragon Pulse, Focus Blast
- Greninja: Surf, Spikes, Ice Beam, Dark Pulse
- Togekiss: Roost, Air Slash, Dazzling Gleam, TWave
- Trevenant: Rest, WoW, Shadow Claw, Horn Leech
- Excadrill: EQ, S.Dance, Rock Slide, Rapid Spin
- Galvantula: Thunder, Bug Buzz, Volt Switch, Sticky Web

The thing is that there's no Steel or Poison move that can take care of them. Is there any Pokemon in my team that can take the role of Fairy killer? And again, sorry for being a noob.

Fairy isn't one of those types you're going to necessarily need something that can hit them for SE damage with, as all of the pure Fairy types are made of paper defensively, and the dual typed ones have weaknesses to more common/better attacking types.

Having a physical tank that can handle Azumarill would probably be a good idea, though.

I see. This seemed like a problem against certain combinations, though. Gardevoir is especially aggravating. But I guess you're right.

By the way, may I add your Safari? I need Swanna and Spearow.

Removes spikes and replace it with HP Fire or U-Turn on Greninja. Remove Trevenant and replace him with Ferrothorn. Remove Galvantula for an offensive poke like Diggersby.

I had a lot of trouble with azumarill on my team, as my only purely defensive wall (gliscor) was weak to aqua jet. I ended up using ferrothorn and it's funny watching azumarill aqua jet and rough play itself to death against him. However you have to be careful against the superpower variants, but I haven't seen that being run as much this gen. You could probably afford to drop trevanent for him, up to you though.

Getting the right HP is nigh impossible and I think U-Turn wouldn't be too good without investment into Physical Attack.

Remove Trevenant and replace him with Ferrothorn. Remove Galvantula for an offensive poke like Diggersby.

I know I'll sound like an idiot, but I'm a real loyalist when it comes to the characters I use in a videogame. I know there are better choices for this team, but I really want to make it work as it is.
