    Description (open)

    Overview
    So, this is a balanced team i came up with that piloswine with eviolite and avalugg as a decent defensive core to take on threats to ice such as charizard Y, Volcarona and stealth rocks lol. Then the team has offensive members to check various threats and threaten the opposing team.
    [​IMG]:Mega glalie on the team is the wall breaker of the team since Refrigerate boosted double edge hits very hard and is able to wall break with it, double edge + explosion takes out porygon2. Earthquake hits steel types that resist its ice stab move such as heatran. Ice shard is used to revenge kill faster threats since mega glalie does not possess a great speed.
    [​IMG]:Next up we have Offensive utility ninetales-alola on the team to provide aurora veil support to the team which allows the team to tank more hits while allowing set up sweeper like cloyster to shell smash a little more easily. Ninetales-alola on the team checks troublesome fighting types for the team such as keldeo and non scarfed terrakion. Freeze dry is used for bulky water types such as swampert and mantine,while encore annoys walls and grants momentum to the team.
    [​IMG]:Cloyster is the set up sweeper of the team and probably the best z move user on ice teams. This set allows it to sweep steel and hence it is also called as steel killer set. boosted Hp fire and hydro pump takes care of most steel types. Rock blast is used for fire types, Waterium z allows cloyster to get past its usual checks at +2.
    [​IMG]:Kyurem-Black on the team is the mandatory scarf user which also works as a good revenge killer. Outrage is the main used to clean late game or to revenge kill.Fusion bolt is used for water types like toxapex and ice beam is used since kyurem-black lacks physical ice stab move and ice beam has enough power to severely damage pokemon weak to it,earth power allows it to hit steel types and pokemon with the ability levitate such as Rotom-wash.
    [​IMG]:Piloswine is the stealth rock setter of the team that also checks threats such as charizard mega Y and volcarona with rock slide. Thick fat and sp.def spread along with eviolite makes it bulky on the special side.Earthquake is a stab move that hits decently hard and ice shard is used to take out weakened faster pokemon.
    [​IMG]:Lastly we have avalugg as a physical wall and rapid spinner for the team since ice teams are plagued by stealth rocks otherwise.Roar is used to phaze out set up pokemon that try to set up on it. Avalanche hits hard if avalugg is attacked since it doubles in base power. Recover is for sustain.Rocky helmet is used to annoy and wear down physical pokemon.

    Overview
    Like most bug teams, this team is also offensive in nature. I chose to go Mega heracross with Durant as Mega heracross is a phenomenal Wall breaker and really appreciates sticky web support from galvantula.
    [​IMG][​IMG]Galvantula and Armaldo form the utility core on the team which provides support such as sticky web, Stealth Rock and rapid spin support to the team. The utility core of Galvantula and Armaldo also has offensive presence so that doesn't take away momentum.
    [​IMG]For Mega heracross I chose to run an all out Attacker set, Earthquake is mainly used for Toxapex as it 2hkos with earthquake. Other than that the set is standard, Adamant Nature is used for more power.
    [​IMG]Choice Banded Durant with hustle hits really hard and is another wall breaker on the team. It has coverage moves that help in match ups such as fairy and flying. Superpower is used for steel types like Heatran. It's 109 speed along with sticky web support and a choice band is very fun to abuse.
    [​IMG]Next up volcarona is the set up sweeper of the team. Putting in work vs match ups like steel and electric. Firium Z allows it to break past its checks once it has few quiver dance boosts under its belt, giga drain to get some recovery while taking out rock, ground and water types. Hp ground for Heatran.
    [​IMG]Scolipede is the cleaner on the team as it can work even without sticky web support thanks to its ability beast boost. I opted to go for a life Orb set with protect and 3 attacks. Mega horn and poison Jab form it's stab moves, out of which the latter allows it to deal with common fairy types in the metagame. Earthquake is for fire and steel types, giving it good coverage.

    Durant - With Z Hone Claws not only do all of its moves become over 100% accuracy but instead of a +1 boost its gets a +2 boost, allowing Durant to hit everything extremely hard. Stone Edge is to hit pokemon such as Charizard Y and Zapdos. However Durant is fairly frail so make sure to plan safely when to setup Z Hone Claws. This pokemon is actually really underrated in Monotype imo.

    Mega Pinsir - There really is not anything to explain here, Mega Pinsir just sets up boosts with Swords Dance then just breaks through everything with Frustration. Close Combat hits annoying Steels like Heatran. Mega Pinsir and Volcarona are an insane offensive core being able to break a good amount of the other pokemons checks and can be quite difficult to manage them both well.

    Galvantula - Sets up Sticky Web and just spams attack trying to weaken the opposing team as much as possible so its teammates can clean pretty easily.

    Buzzwole - Many maybe thinking well why would you ever use Buzzwole over Scarf Heracross and thats a question I will happily answer. This thing can switch into Excadrill unlike any other good Bug pokemon and is the teams main answer to Dragon since Scizor usually checks that shit for Bug. But Durant+Scizor is ugly as shit so Buzzwole is a must on every non Scizor bug squad.

    Volcarona - Volcarona like Galvantula and Armaldo are a must on every single viable Bug team. This thing pressures so many types with its ability to easily clean through weakened teams. This thing also breaks tons of Pinsir's checks such as Diancie with a +1 Boost and some chip with Giga Drain and most importantly can get rid of Skarmory and Celesteela for Pinsir. Also I opted for Fire Blast over Fiery Dance because I actually like being able to pick up KOes.

    Armaldo - A pretty standard set. It lives always a V-Create from Victini after Stealth Rock chip, which is crucial especially since this team does not have an Araquanid to spunge V-Create's. The moves are pretty self explanatory.

    Durant is the star of the team. I’m using Darkinium Z in order to boost Hone Claws. Crunch’s superior coverage and flinch chance makes it a better option over X-Scissor, and can double as a Black Hole Eclipse nuke after a +1, being able to dent the likes of Toxapex and Slowbro. The rest of the set is standard. Z-Hone Claws acts as a Swords Dance while patching up Durant’s imperfect accuracy. Durant’s decent physical bulk as well as good defensive typing makes it a key Pokemon on this team.

    The next Pokemon was Volcarona. Our set is rather different, as it passes up on a Z Move for SubQD, which allows it to set up on the likes of Heatran without Stone Edge and drain its PP. Swarm is the preferred ability here as it boosts the power of Bug Buzz once it gets enough Substitutes.

    Armaldo is the premier spinner and SR setter on Bug, so it’s perfect for this team. It’s typing synergizes well with Durant, as its able to live the likes of V-create from Victini and KO it with Stone Edge. Knock Off is also a very useful move as it’s useful in the Normal matchup especially. This set is pretty standard, so I think the rest is self explanatory.

    Araquanid is almost necessary on Durant teams as it provides a legitimate switch-in to the likes of Mega Charizard Y. Choice Band allows it to dent a lot of teams thanks to Water Bubble-boosted Liquidation. Leech Life offers useful recovery, and the last two slots are pretty sub-standard. Lunge can punish basically any physical switch-in to it and allows something like Durant to come in much more safely. Toxic on a Band set may seem redundant, but it’s an excellent lure that can catch the likes of Porygon2, Mantine and other switch-ins off-guard.

    Galvantula is a good lead and pivoter thanks to Sticky Web and Volt Switch, respectively. Webs is very beneficial for this team, as it helps out Pinsir and Durant with setting up and sweeping. Thunder and HP Ice gives this team a solid answer to most Flying types, and Volt Switch, as I said, preserves momentum for the team since it lacks any U-turn user. This set is also fairly standard so I won’t go into much more detail.

    This team is completed by Mega Pinsir, which puts a large amount of offensive pressure on teams thanks to how dangerous it is under Sticky Web. This is the standard Swords Dance set, and the teammates help it beat the things that wall it, such as Skarmory.
