Eelektross @ Focus Sash
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 Atk
Gentle Nature
- Thunder Wave
- Volt Switch
- U-turn
- Aqua Tail

My lead. I use Thunder Wave followed by Volt Switch. If I run into an Electric Pokemon I use U-Turn. If I run into a Ground Pokemon I use Aqua Tail.

Sigilyph @ Flame Orb
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
Calm Nature
- Cosmic Power
- Stored Power
- Psycho Shift
- Roost

I then swap to Sigilyph. With them being paralyzed I Cosmic Power spam and then use Stored Power and Psycho Shift if they're doing too much damage. Followed by Roost if I am low on HP.

Mandibuzz (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Overcoat
EVs: 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 Atk
Impish Nature
- Defog
- Knock Off
- Toxic
- Roost

Mostly for Defog purposes.

Sylveon @ Leftovers
Ability: Cute Charm
EVs: 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
Bold Nature
- Draining Kiss
- Calm Mind
- Heal Bell
- Wish

Healer. Probably won't change this Pokemon.

Aegislash @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Stance Change
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- King's Shield
- Sacred Sword
- Shadow Sneak

Main Attacker.

Venomoth @ Leftovers
Ability: Wonder Skin
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 Atk
Mild Nature
- Aerial Ace
- Giga Drain
- Psychic
- Quiver Dance

I was just testing if this was viable or not. Going to put in someone different. Thinking a Mega Pokemon.

Since you're using multiple items (and seemingly have bank), I recommend this moveset for Sylveon instead.

Hyper Voice (If HA)/Moonblast (If no HA)
Wish
Heal Bell
HP Ground/Shadow Ball/Protect

Draining Kiss is terrible.

Alright I'll try that. Having Draining Kiss is rather pointless with Wish.

Why does your Venomoth know Aerial Ace? And where are it's STAB moves?

Weakness Policy Aegislash should be mixed. Shadow Ball is Aegislash's best move.

Someone in your team should carry Stealth Rock. It should be bulky and able to set them multiple times in a match.

Mandibuzz prefers Foul Play since it actually kills things. Also replace Toxic. Multiple status spreaders lead to diminishing returns.

If you're running a Calm Mind Healer Fairy, I recommend Clefable since it has better abilities.

I'm replacing Venomoth with a mega.

Okay Shadow Ball is good.

I was thinking that too. Only reason i didn't put one on this team is because my last time consisted of a bunch of entry hazards. I think I'll add Mamoswine.

Added Foul Play and Aerial Ace.

I'll stick with Sylveon for now because my last team had Clefable.

Replace elelektross with the best non-legendary electric type in the game guts luxray.

No sarcasm I literally say give it a chance. No one hardly ever sees one so they don't know how to react. Its egg moves have gotten me plenty of wins. I use

Luxray @ Flame Orb
Adamant

Wild Charge (STAB)
Ice Fang (Ground/Grass Coverage)
Quick Attack (Priority)
Double Team (Honestly I never use I would rather have Magnet Rise but its not available)

If you want to give it a shot PM me and I can give you a shinx.

Don't use Swords Dance and King's Shield on the same set. Aegislash needs all the coverage it can get.

I would use Luxray but reason I use Eelektross is because he can learn both Volt Switch and U-Turn. I like paralyzing opponent, and then swapping to Sigilyph. Makes it easier to Cosmic Power spam.

I was thinking of dropping Swords Dance but I wasn't sure. I could probably add Iron Head for Fairy types.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish with two similar moves that serve the same purpose though? Granted Luxray is no special attacker but volt switch will still be STAB and you get the free switch.
