Giving team-building another shot. seem solid?
so, i decided to give team-building another shot. I have 4 slots on my team filled out so far. it's mostly defensive, but aimed at powering up the Charizard as much as possible. However, aside from the first four pokemon, i'm having trouble filling the last two slots. I have a pool of pokemon to choose from, let me know what you think.

Charizard @ Charizardite X
Blaze
Adamant: 252Atk/252Spe/4Hp
-Flare Blitz
-Dragon Dance
-Earthquake
-Dragon Claw

This Charizard is supposed to be my main physical sweeper, it's meant to hit like a train.

Umbreon @ Leftovers
Synchronize
Calm: 252 HP/ 252 SpD/ 4 Def
-Wish
-Baton Pass
-Heal Bell
-Foul Play

thought I'd try my hand at a Wish Pass Cleric Umbreon, i thought it would help negate status since Status could cripple my sweepers.

Kingdra @ Scope Lens
Sniper
Timid: 252 SpA / 252 spe / 4 Hp
-Draco Meteor
-Ice Beam
-Focus Energy
-Hydro Pump

Kingdra has pretty decent coverage for its typing, and hits other sweepers like Garchomp hard.

Skarmory @ Rocky Helmet
Sturdy
Naughty: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
-Stealth Rock
-Roost
-Whirlwind
-Brave Bird

this is the most irritating Skarmory i could come up with. works as a decent Staller, Physical wall, and scout.

These other pokemon are ones i'm considering for my last two slots, but i'm just not sure which ones to shove in there.

Flygon @ Leftovers
Levitate
Careful: 252HP / 126 SpD / 126 Def
-Defog
-U-turn
-Earthquake
-Toxic

I currently don't have a Defogger. Stealth Rock could cripple Charizard switching in, and i thought this was a decent alternative.

Ninetails @ Leftovers
Flash Fire
Timid: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4HP
-Nasty Plot
-Fire Blast
-Substitute
-Energy Ball

Fire Blast is chosen over Overheat, because at 20 less power, this attack has a chance to burn, and is easier to buff.

Absol @ Dread Plate
Pressure
Adamant: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 Spe
-Sucker Punch
-Baton Pass
-Swords Dance
-Substitute

Baton Pass is one silly of a useful move with Swords Dance. but unfortunately, Absol tends to be fragile.
Pressure lets it wear down the PP of opponents' moves, Sucker Punch lets it hit first with a STAB attack, and hide behind a substitute for a round or two.

Idk where you would use this team, but a problem I found in Impulse on this site is 1 baton pass Pokemon only. Idk how common this rule is but it'd mean you can't use Ninetails and Umbreon together.

Think you mean Absol. But yes, only one Baton Pass Pokemon per team, and a Pokemon with Baton Pass cannot have a move that boosts both Speed and another stat in one go (ex: Shell Smash, Quiver Dance).

i wasn't aware of that rule. hm. well, i guess that makes that decision easy. Absol's out, Ninetails and Flygon are in.
as for where i'd be using this team, most likely wifi battles until i get better at battling. i hope to eventually get to competitive status, but right now i'm working on creating strategies.
I know it's not great, but any tips would be appreciated.
what would You use for the last two slots? because the Ninetails is interesting, but i don't know if it'll survive more than one round. Flygon as a defogger can work, but there might be better ones i don't know about.
