I am working on a Pokemon team and I need a good special sweeper. I just can't decide on which Special Sweeper to use! I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for a good special sweeper.
Thanks!

What's the rest of your team and what tier of battling do you play?

Venasaur(status conditions role), Blazeikin (physical sweeper), Honchkrow(hazer), Feralgatr(physical sweeper), Duskinoir(defensive), (special sweeper).
Do you need to know the movesets and held items too?


The tier of battling is... uh... :( I kinda don't understand that term, since I'm new to the boards... :oops: But I'm not going ubers, thats for sure!

I recommend a Flame charge Heatran or Choice Scarf Magnezone since your team lacks a steel type, which is quite valuable for it's resistances.

Heatran
Timid @ Leftovers/LO
252S.atk 252Spd 4def
-Flame charge
-Fire blast/flamethrower
-Earth power
-Dragon pulse/HP ice/grass

Magnezone
Timid @ Choice scarf
252s.atk 252spd 4hp
-T-bolt
-Flash cannon
-Signal beam/ HP Ice
-Volt switch/Explosion
-

Thanks for the advice!
I was wondering if you had any substitutes for the explosion move instead of volt switch, since A, this team isn't on white, it's on diamond, and B, I'm not sure if I want to use TM Explosion.
Thanks again for your help!
Also, I'm not sure if the Choice Scarf would be the best choice, but that's just me.

Not really much else in D/P You can get it Tri-attack as Magneton or Mirror coat to throwback a special attack. The reason for the choice scarf is that it's speed is base 60, lower than TTar, Metagross, Breloom etc. scarf remedies that to a extent.

Ahh... I see... Thank you for the help, MasonTheChef. I'm still thinking about that Magnezone... Sure would work well... Any more opinions on this predicament would be OK.
