Umbreon
Return
Curse
Mean Look
Baton Pass
@ Mint Berry/Leftovers (depends on 4th move)

His purpose is to lure out Hazers, trap 'em, then BP to whoever can kill that Hazer. I've also considered Double Team over Curse, then BPing to Zapdos so he could paralyze a lot more of the opponent's team (Heal Bell would really screw that idea, though).

Zapdos
HP Ice/Thunderbolt (debating)
Thunder Wave
Whirlwind
Rest
@Mint Berry

Pretty obvious, just a parashuffler to paralyze as much of the opponent's team as possible.

Jolteon (female)
Thunderbolt
Thunder Wave
Attract
Substitute
@Leftovers

Jolteon is to finish what Zapdos couldn't get done, and to Attract and kill.

Lapras (female)
Ice Beam
Confuse Ray
Attract
Rest
@Mint Berry

Lapras adds parafusion to the team, plus Attract for a very slim chance of attacking.

Scizor
Agility
Swords Dance
Double Team
Baton Pass
@Brightpowder

After the opponent's team is weakened out with the multiple Attracts, Confuse Rays, and Thunder Waves, the Baton Passer comes out and Baton Passes to...

Aerodactyl
Earthquake
Ancientpower
Wing Attack
Rest
@Miracleberry

The main sweeper of the team. Basically just to clean house.

That's it, all ratings are very much appreciated.

Quick problems that I spot-

You're got a massive prole Marowak weakness. If someone's toting a Scizor to BP to that 'wak, you've got no Fire moves to nuke it. Also, I'm a firm believer that BP Umby was just another case of good-on-paper, shitty-on-pracice, because as soon as people see a starting Umbreon, they switch to a Roarer, given that Haze is so rarely used due to Evade ban (dunno why people insist on it, but whatever).

Maybe because it doesn't work if there's only one Poke left. Say a lone curselax against a team. That's the reason for haze.

umbreon just isn't useful anymore. The problem is the fact that he's so predictable. U see an umbreon, people send our their psuedo-hazer. Most teams have too also, and suicune is very common u mean look him in, bp to jolteon/zapdos, and immediatly get roared away. doesn't sound to good to me...

the problem with these teams, is that they are not very flexible at all. They rely on a poke, who relies on a poke, etc. A lucky critical hit/ohko and they are dead.

I say, go for the simple team balance of covering each weakness as much as you can, and always have at least one back up plan.

Umbreon: Like they said, just not that good anymore because of the roaring thing. Assuming that they have a hazer, it could work though.

Zapdos: Parashuffle bad. Just switch in ground and bad things happen. I think it needs both attack moves, one over whirlwind or T-wave.

Jolteon: Standard

Lapras: Ok

Scizor: I think everything should have at least one move to effectively deal damage, so Bug HP over one of the moves, probably DT or agility. Scizor needs agility, but Aero, your BP target, really doesn't.

Aerodactyl: Unprotected Mintyrest is a bad thing for Aero if it doesn't have DT's passed to it, in which case it probably won't need it anyway.

Overall: Definately a Marowak problem. If Aero can't get it's job done, bad things will happen.

Umbreon
Return
Curse
Mean Look
Baton Pass
@ Mint Berry/Leftovers (depends on 4th move)

NEVER EVER go with a physical attack on Umbreon. Umbreon's attack power is HORRIBLE. If you could get a lot of Curses in, ok, but, on it's own, Return will suck, even if Umbreon loves you...

Zapdos
HP Ice/Thunderbolt
Thunder Wave
Whirlwind
Rest
@Mint Berry

Definately keep Thunderwave. I think you need BOTH Thunderbolt & HP Ice. Ditch either Rest or Whirlwind for both of those attacks...

Jolteon (female)
Thunderbolt
Thunder Wave
Attract
Substitute
@Leftovers

Seems ok. I personally don't like Substitute, but, it could work...

(I would rather have HiddenPower ICE Over Substitute Personally)

Lapras (female)
Ice Beam
Confuse Ray
Attract
Rest
@Mint Berry

Ok, Confuse Ray & Ice Beam = Good. This does not add parafusion to your team, only fusion... I would put Body Slam on there somewhere... (for a chance of para)

Scizor
Agility
Swords Dance
Double Team
Baton Pass
@Brightpowder

Ask someone else on this guy, I am not a Scizor expert, I don't even like him, but, if I HAD a Scizor, I'd try to have a HiddenPower of Bug on him, but, yours doesn't seem to be for attacking... so, I guess it's ok.

Aerodactyl
Earthquake
Ancientpower
Wing Attack
Rest
@Miracleberry

Seems alright. Since he is wellrounded send him out first, especially since he has the miracle berry & enemy might try to fuse or para right away.
