Good special sweepers?

  1. I'm looking for a special sweeper for my team but I can't really decide. I want something that can hit hard and still take a few hits (doesn't have to necessarily be a tank, but less fragile than greninja or gengar I suppose). I also need something that can help cover my team's weaknesses or counters. My team is:

    Aegislash: Careful Nature
    Item: Leftovers
    Stance Change
    EVs: 252 HP 200 SpDef 52 Attack
    move set:
    Shadow Claw
    Swords Dance
    Sacred Sword
    Kings Shield

    Greninja: Timid Nature
    Item: Expert Belt
    EVs: 252 SpAtt 252 Spe 6 HP
    Move set:
    Dark Pulse
    Grass Knot
    Ice Beam

    Garchomp: Jolly Nature
    Item: Garchompite
    Sand Veil
    EVs: 252 Att 252 Spe 6 HP
    Move set:
    Fire Blast (for Skarmory/Scissor/etc)
    Dual Chop (great, ruins sub and sashes)
    Poison Jab (Fairy Killer, plus poison)

    Avalugg: Adamant Nature
    Item: Sitrus Berry
    EVs: 252 HP 252 Def 6 SpDef
    Move set:
    Mirror Coat

    I need a special sweeper that will work well with this team. Something that can hit powerfully and won't die too easily, not necessarily a tank though. Also, please don't recommend Hydreigon. I just don't need another dragon (who is also 4x weak to fairy >.<).
    Additionally, if anyone has any ideas for another wall/supporter, I would really appreciate it. I'm so close to finishing my team I can almost taste it.
    Thanks guys!

    I went with a Volcarona but forgot to take down the question. Thanks though, I might use Guarddvior as a support I never though if that. Thanks

  1. Gardevoir fits really well as a supporter. Give it a light clay, light screen, reflect, and moonblast, and you're good to go.

    As for the sweeper, you have a lot of freedom here. I find that many methods of using aegislash are special-oriented, as its base attack and special attack are always equal, not including natures, but, if you need another Pokemon, most likely a clawitzer will get the job done. Water pulse's base power will become I believe 160 due to mega launcher and STAB, and it can even be a healer in double battles from heal pulse, which, thanks to mega launcher, will heal up to 75% instead of 50%. Just give that clawitzer wise glasses, and it's a force to be reckoned with.
