    Cause why not? This team is definitely Physical based, so burns hurt.

    Poke: :tarantasm:
    Item: :focussash:
    EVs: 252 SPD, 252 ATK, 4 HP
    Moves: Sticky Web, Protect, X-Scissor, Shadow Claw
    Nature: Jolly
    Ability: Shed Skin
    Tarantasm is not just for setting up Sticky Web, but also for good attacks afterwards. Protect allows Tarantasm to be cured of status conditions, especially burn, which could ruin attacks.

    Poke: :miasmyrm:
    Item: :lifeorb:
    EVs: 252 ATK, 136 HP, 120 DEF
    Moves: Outrage, Dragon Dance, Poison Jab, Flare Blitz
    Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Spiteful
    Let me just say, i have no idea if this guy learns Flare Blitz. If he does though, he can use it to destroy Mawile, who could wall him otherwise. As for the other moves, Spiteful allows him to gain a buff from Outraging into a fairy, DDance allows a buff in case there are no steels or fairies, or in case you can predict a switch. This guy can also tank physical attacks, so watch out for that.

    Poke: :farcystis:
    Item: :assaultvest:
    EVs: 252 DEF, 40 SpD, 120 HP, 56 SpA, 40 ATK
    Moves: Leaf Blade, Scald, Ice Beam, HP Fire
    Nature: Sassy
    Ability: Regenerator
    This guy is basically mixed everything. it's got mixed offenses, mixed defenses, in fact the only stat not with EV is Speed. It also has really good coverage. HP Fire hits a lot of types, especially Bug and Steel. Ice beam hits Flying, and it's two STABs have good coverage on their own.

    Poke: :apollyonm:
    Item: :flameorb:
    EVs: 252 ATK, 252 SPD, 4 DEF
    Moves: Glistening Strike, Hone Claws, Superpower, Earthquake
    Nature: Jolly
    Ability: Guts
    This may just be one of the best ToxicGuts set i've seen. Hone Claws lets Apollyion get another attack boost while also helping Glistening Strike hit more, Superpower puts a huge dent in things like Skarmory, and Earthquake hits most Steels and Poisons well.

    Poke: :wallaro:
    Item: :lifeorb:
    EVs: 252 ATK, 252 SPD, 4 HP
    Moves: Hi Jump Kick, Flare Blitz, Blaze Kick, Sucker Punch
    Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Sheer Force
    Ohh, Wallaro. Flare Blitz and Blaze Kick have a chance to burn, negating LO damage. Even then though, it's still probably gonna KO just about anything that isn't a ridiculous physical wall.

    Poke: :totower:
    Item: :leftovers:
    EVs: 252 DEF, 252 SpD, 4 HP
    Moves: Toxic, Protect, Psyshock, Recover
    Nature: Calm
    Ability: Magic Bounce
    I was all sorts of mad when i found out this Poke can't learn Pain Split or Wish. However, i made it work. It's definitely a staller, through and through. Don't have a hard hitter? Too bad. Can't leech seed, toxic, or anything else. In fact, you just helped set up my team.

    Wouldn't Apollyion benefit more from a Flame Orb? Toxic isn't the best status to be under when Burn is available with Guts. Being burnt really only effects Miasmyrm (Is that it's name?)
    but even so, with DD you can rip holes through the less bulky things anyways.

    Too slow. Fastest pokemon is 107 base speed, Sticky Web is incredibly overrated, especially when Flying types run through your entire team. Totower isn't running a rock move and a non-STAB Ice Beam from Farcy is only coming off of 90 base SAtk with no boosting item (with OI EV/IVs, Ice Beam from Farcy can't even 2HKO a glass cannon like Talonite).

    I'd give Totower Power Gem or something over Psyshock. Miasmyrm and Tarantasm should be good enough to handle a few fighting types. But I'd also seriously consider adding something faster, or at least something with some semblance of a priority move, as even a +1 Miasmyrm is outsped by a large amount of strong OI pokemon.
