Hey, I used to go to TPM, and I battle on the gsbot alot so some of you guys might know me or have seen me around. Here's my team, a pretty standard layout, but rate it anyway. =P

Nidoking
-Earthquake
-Fire Blast
-Rest
-Sandstorm
Mint Berry
***Well, has Fire Blast for Forretress starters. Earthquake gets STAB, and and since this is a TSS team, Sandstorm works. And TSS teams depend on stalling and staying power, this guy has a minty rest for quick recovery. And when the mint berry is gone, (Mint Berry also helps for Smeargle starters if they try to spore me) I can just switch out to bliss for some heal resting.

Forretress
-Spikes
-Explosion
-Sandstorm
-Toxic
Leftovers
***Everyone nowadays expect Forretress too much as starters. This guy is really easy to switch to because of its awesome defense staying power. Whenever I see a miltank, lax, or anyting like that, I can switch right into this guy, and set up spikes. I can also beat all CurseLax with this guy if I can just toxic them, then set up a sandstorm...doing 25%+ to the opponent each turn when they are poisoned and the sandstorm is up. Explosion can finish off those Lax when they are at about 50% or so due to Toxic-Sandstorm and are about to rest. Or I can explode on anyone messing me up. =\

Skarmory
-Drill Peck
-Sandstorm
-Rest
-Whirlwind
Mint Berry
***Gah, standard. Anotehr one. Sue me! ^_~ Very good defencive staying power. Sometimes I can predict switches and use Whirlwind to make them get hit by spikes. Spikes+Sandstorm+=25% of the opponent's HP on a switch. That really helps. Rest, just like nidoking, gives it extra time to live and this team has some rest belling in it too.

Tyranitar
-Crunch
-Rock Slide
-Toxic
-Rest
Mint Berry
***Heh, sort of standard again. =\ Err, toxic can force more switches, Crunch gets STAB, and so does Rock Slide. Rest for recovery, and, well, you know...Or I hope. =/

Blissey
-Present
-Toxic
-Heal Bell
-Softboiled
Leftovers
***Yay! A non-standard set! Hehe, my invention. Bliss is my heal beller, and has very awesome special staying power. And that works great since most of my team is very defensive. Present can own all special types. It does not run off of stats, so it's low attack isn't gonna mess it up. Hehe, take my word, it ownz all special types. Sometime it can ohko them. w00t! Well, Toxic is if I predict a switch to a mchamp in which present does literally 5% to, and I can switch to Skarmory. =\ Works for this team too. Erm, gurl gets frozen nearly once every 3 battles on the gsbot. =| That's my luck for ya. Heh, but leftovers is still better than miracleberry in this case.

Starmie
-Psychic
-Surf
-Thunderbolt
-Recover
Miracleberry
***Just a special sweeper than covers alot of types. Psychic and Surf gets STAB, and Thunderbolt is just a good attack and I need an electric move. One thing though is I might wanna give it Ice Beam instead, for grass types in case I predict a switch to one or for flyers, etc. I dunno, what do you think? Miralceberry to protect it from PAR or anything really.

Gah, rate it. It has a pretty good record on the gsbots. I forgot though. ^_^; Hehe, TSS works very, very well if used right. 1/4 of the opponent's HP a turn is alot! K, plz rate. I don't wanna see, "Good team, man! You ROCKS!!111" or anything like that. XD All helpfull suggestions are welcome.

For Chansey..

Minimize or Psychic over present. I would take Psychic because it can sweep Chansey's weakness, Machamp... or not.
It depend with Special Attack and Speed.

EDIT: Typos strikes back!

Hmm, I have now some new info for only me, so I'll rate.

Nidoking

I don't like this guy. It doesn't have enough attack/special attack. I suggest using Golem.

Forretress

Hmm, Toxicsandstormspikesexplosive Forretress, would be standard?

Skarmory

-Steel Wing
-Drill Peck
-Swagger
-Whirlwind

That's another annoying against opponent. Mwahaha, it kills many pokémon.

Tyranitar

-Fire Blast
-Screech
-Earthquake
-Rock Slide
@Hard Stone

That's best set. I don't like Rest / Mint Berry on Tyranitar because I think Rest misses..

Blissey

-Minimize
-Heal Bell
-Softboiled
-Double-Edge

Mwahaha, sweeper.

First what the heck can this thing sweep!? Kakuna?? Well if you really want Double-Edge take off Minimize for Curse.

No, Kakuna has Harden. It would take awhile.

Maybe Karp'

I'll rate....

-Nidoking: Like Bob_Utsugi said, I also prefer Golem over Nidoking. Maybe one like this: Earthquake, Body Slam, Explosion, Rockslide.

-Forretress: Eh....I used this one before, it's not as effective as I thought it'd be. I'd go with: Spikes, Explosion, Toxic, Double Edge. (You don't need the extra Sandstorm) Also, I'd probalby switch the item, seeing as he won't be lasting very long in battle, maybe a Pink Bow?

-Skarmory: Steel Wing over Sandstorm...

-Tyranitar: Eh....You've got too many Resters on your team, and I don't think this guy should be one....Give it: Crunch, Fireblast, Earthquake, Rockslide...

-Blissey: Seismic Toss over Toxic/Present...

-Starmie: Yeah, this one is great...


-Sorry I kinda ruined your team, making it a non-TSS team....If the TSS works for you, keep it.

Nidoking
-Earthquake
-Fire Blast
-Rest
-Sandstorm
Mint Berry

I don't know about using this. It would surely counter that annoying as hell parattract Jolteon standard, and Blissey can handle Psychic starters. It seems a little risky, but keep it if it works. I'd use Shadow Ball over Sandstorm, but it's up to you.

Forretress
-Spikes
-Explosion
-Sandstorm
-Toxic
Leftovers

No. This won't work at all. You're not gonna get to do much beyond Spikes and Explode without Reflect on there. Ditch Sandstorm for that. If you set up Reflect and Toxic a Snorlax, you can stall it until it has to Rest. Once that happens, you can take it out with something else like Tyranitar.

Skarmory
-Drill Peck
-Sandstorm
-Rest
-Whirlwind
Mint Berry

Works.

Tyranitar
-Crunch
-Rock Slide
-Toxic
-Rest
Mint Berry

Rest works wonders on this guy. I use it on him myself, along with Crunch, Rock Slide, and Roar. You really don't have much along the lines of counter defense in this team except Skarmory and perhaps Forretress, who would die to a Fire Blasting Snorlax, which is growing in popularity. You also have too much Toxic, so I'd drop Toxic for Roar. Roar works well with Spikes so you're still keeping with the TSS theme, plus Tyranitar's resistant to fire.

Blissey
-Present
-Toxic
-Heal Bell
-Softboiled
Leftovers

For the first two attacks I'd go with either Double-Edge and Curse or Psychic and Reflect/Light Screen. Take your pick.

Starmie
-Psychic
-Surf
-Thunderbolt
-Recover
Miracleberry

Thunder Wave wouldn't work with this team, but Confuse Ray would. The small damage it can cause can help Toxic and Sandstorm to whittle down an opponent's health, and Starmie needs a status effect due to its horrible defensive stats. I'd drop Psychic for it. If having a psychic attack is really important to you, Blissey can learn it.

Sorry if I've somewhat weakened this team's theme, but now you should have enough counter defense to stand a good chance against resting tanks and perish trappers. Good luck with this team. It looks pretty good.
