Right, let's get straight down into business, submit your favourites with their attacks, Nature and if you can, their item and Level! (can be from previous games...)
My Psychic one is Espeon, his attacks are Psychic, Shadow Ball, Signal Beam and Swift. His Nature is Modest (Sp.Attack+ Attack-) and holds Wise Glasses to improve Sp.Attack even more!
My Dark one is Umbreon. (i love eevee evolutions!) He knows Faint Attack, Shadow Ball, Psychic and Dig. His Nature is Sassy (Sp.Def+ Speed-) and holds Quick Claw to make up for his not so good speed.
Well there you have it!

Umbreon's more apt to non-offensive roles.

There's no good or bad Pokémon. You can pretty much make any Pokémon good... except Magikarp.

Indeed. Magicarp is too awesome as it is.

There are plenty of bad pokémon as far as competitive battling goes, but one reason I love the single player is that you can beat the campaign with pretty much anything.

That moveset would beg to differ.

That's just tanking. That still only has only one attack.

Hmm.

My Opener Punish Zong:
Bronzong@Leftover
Heatproof
252 hp, 132 def, 126 def
Sassy Nature
Iron Defense
Calm Mind
Psychic
Gyro Ball

It's meant to punish light screen/reflect openers which seem all the rage these days..
It takes the opportunity to give itself a 200% defense boost since after the shields the enemy usually uses either explosion or U-Turn. It barely gets hurt. And it's usually used to setup physical sweepers. So just buff up with Calm Mind a couple of times and tank everything then just mix sweep everything.(assuming they don't bring out a roarer such as Swampert to ruin your day. But it can come out later and perform some good late game roles as well so it's not too bad.)

I lold as I took it for a stroll on Smogon channels and it won atleast 3/4 of the matches by itself. The ones who beat it revenged with either a Roarer or a Taunter.

Bonus points if you have a super fast trick roomer.

Best psychic goes to Jolly Gallade
Because a speed plus nature is TOTALLY gonna help slow as Gallade.

I hardly keep up anymore but as far as I know, Latias is OU now, so there's your psychic.
Dark....eeeeeh, are there any half good ones around?
T-tar probably simply because of stats alone.

Course if you gonna chuck ubers in this its obviously Wobby and Darkrai.
