Since this is my first post at AH, that basically means I'm a n00b until proven othewise. I don't think this will do it, but here's my current team:

Aerodactyl&leftovers
-Ancient Power
-Whirlwind
-Earthquake
-Substitute

My starter. Since aero is the 2nd fastest pokemon in the game, he can safely set up a substitute before te other starter attacks. Sub eats a status hanger if used. Whirlwind is for those pain-in-the-ass Umbreons and Jolteons.

Umbreon&mirracle berry
-double team
-mean look
-rest
-baton pass

Yes, it is a pain in the ass, that's why I have one. With all he whirlwinders/roarers around these days, I think using mean look is the only way I can Baton Pass safely.

EDIT ops ML doesn't prevet roarers/w-winders, my bad. Thanks oporaca

Marowak&thick club
-sword's dance
-earthquake
-rock slide
-fire blast

I really neede fire blast in there, because it's my only fire attack, and for support. While not that powerful on maro, hopefully it will cause a switch.

Kingdra&leftovers
-surf
-curse
-double edge
-rest

I think I saw CG post this, and I really liked the curse/DE kingdra better than any others.

Ursaring&mint berry
-curse
-return
-roar
-rest

I havn't really used this guy that much...I don't know if roar will work, but I kinda need it on him anyway. I have return there as sort of a utilty move, it being my only attack.

Celebi&leftovers
-heal bell
-recover
-leech seed
-giga drain

Eh. I couldn't resist. I think I need a beller on this team to help me out with some unprotected rests, and to heal Umbreon(of status changers-paralysis,toxic,etc.), the central part of my team.

Well, that's it. While it may not be that good, this is my current team.

Aerodactyl&leftovers
-Ancient Power
-Whirlwind
-Earthquake
-Substitute

Pretty much the standard around here so I don't see anything wrong with this.

Umbreon&mirracle berry
-double team
-mean look
-rest
-baton pass

Good.

Marowak&thick club
-sword's dance
-earthquake
-rock slide
-fire blast

Nothing to rate here.

Kingdra&leftovers
-surf
-curse
-double edge
-rest

I like this moveset. You don't really see too many Kingdras around here nowadays.

Ursaring&leftovers
-curse
-return
-roar
-rest

I don't know about this moveset. It needs something more but I can't quite put my finger on it. E-Quake would work nicely here, but I don't know what to put it over. Lose Rest for it if you don't use a Mint Berry.

Celebi&leftovers
-heal bell
-recover
-leech seed
-giga drain

What?! Don't use Celebi. And I have no idea what you mean about Heal Bell healing Umbreon. You don't think it restores Hit Points do you?

Overall this is a team that nees work. It is really four standard pokes with standard movesets with a Kingdra and Ursaring thrown in there. Very good for your first post though.

Thaks for the rate linkin, I should have been more specific about Celebi healing umbreon- I meant healing it of status changing moves. I also actually meant to put mint berry on ursaring and typed leftovers by mistake, I 'll see if I can edit that.

Aero = Perfect
Umbreon = Perfect
Marowak = Fine
Kingdra: Return over Double Edge
Ursaring: Shadow Ball or Earthquake over Roar

FYI, Mean Look only prevents your opponent from switching, it doesn't prevent Whirlwind or Roar. (It might prevent the user from using Whirlwind and Roar, but not the victim.)
