Hello all,

My team is the Fairy-Steel-Dragon core with some counters to the current meta, and A bit of personal preference.

Grimmsnarl @ Iapapa Berry
Trait: Prankster
EV: 252 Hp / 4 Sp.Def / 252 Atk
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -Sp.Atk)
-Sucker punch
-Play Rough
-Thunder Wave
-Fake out

Role: Support - Fake and Thunder Wave are help control the Tempo of the fight. Adamant nature to punish Bad leads with fairy stab. Sucker punch to hit Hattrene and Gardevoir with priority move.

Corviknight (G-Max) @ Leftovers
Trait: Mirror Armour
EV: 252 hp / 40 Sp.Def / 216 Spd
Careful Nature: (+Sp.Def, -Sp.Atk)
-Bulk up
-Iron Head
-Brave Bird

Role: Physical Sweeper
Good Switch in for Grimmsnarl. The physical Bulk with Good Stab moves and Max Moves. If Corvi has a good support with it, the bulk up set up is amazing.
Only G-Max available in the Steel-Dragon-Fairy Core. Skarmory with Bulk up and Roost!

Hydreigon @ ChoiceScarf
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spd / 4Hp
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
-Draco Meteor
-Dark Pulse
-Earth Power

Role:Special Sweeper
Scarf Draco meter to take out Dragapult, Dracovish and Duraludon.

Great Movepool to fill coverage gaps.

Rotom-Heat @ Sitrus Berry
Ev: 252 HP / 60 Def / 128 SAtk / 68 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
-Volt Switch
-Over Heat

Role: Will-o-Wisp support
I have 3 Weakness to Fairy on the team, so I need another Fairy Resist.
I like Rotom to much not to have one on my team.

Ludicolo @ Assault Vest
Trait: Rain Dish
EVs: 252 HP / 96 Def / 148 SDef / 14 spd
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
  • Icy wind
  • Giga Drain
  • Scald
  • Fake out
Role: Tank support
Gastrodon is very popular right now and this poke is the bane of Water/Ground!. I wanted him to be support as well.
Icy Wind and Fake out for Speed control. He is able to counter Excadrill, Gastrodon, and T-Tar.
Ability: Rain Dish was picked for Dynamaxing. Max Geyser will cause it to rain, healing Ludi at end turn.

Conkeldurr @ Flameorb
Trait: Guts
EV: 252 hp / 252 Atk / 4 SP.Def
IV: 0 Spd
Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd)
-Mach Punch
-Drain Punch
-Ice Punch

Role: Trick Room Counter
Since the G-Max Snorlax and Trick room teams are very popular right now, I decide I need a hard counter.
Conkeldurr is up for the task, I like to combination of Mach and Drain punch.
Ice punch is a coverage choice, but I am not set on it.

Please provide some Feedback on EV Spread and Movesets, This is my first build for Gen 8.
