Weather is certainly viable (ohai mega ttar), just don't ever monotype your teams lol.
There's a local unofficial X/Y tournament happening here sometime over Thanksgiving Break, and I prepared a team for it. I don't have a lot of time to prepare and all of the Pokémon except Houndoom I've already obtained, but I would appreciate any advice on move sets and EV spreads. No egg moves for now.

Iron Barbs (Duh)
252 HP,172 SpD,84 Def,Sassy
252 SpA,252 Spe,4 HP,Timid
252 SpA,252 Spe,4 HP,Modest
252 Def,252 HP,4 SpA,Modest
I realize that Rocky Helmet is an inferior item, but considering the short notice of the tournament I don't have time to get multiple Leftovers/Life Orbs. I also realize that some of the natures aren't ideal, but I think these will work in the short term. So basically, EV Spreads and Movesets (especially movesets) are what I want suggestions on.
I also realize that three of my Pokémon are boost-sweepers. I'm not sure if that's a problem or not.
Basically. I don't know exactly what the ban list for the tournament will be, but I assume that most legendaries banned by Flat Rules will be banned and that we're playing Singles. I'm also not sure how many people are going and how competent they are with the metagame and such.
So it's basically Flat Rules without the items clause. Any abilities or items banned (Brightpowder, Moody, etc.)?
Regardless, I'm mighty tired at the moment. But I'll be sure t' give the team a full review tomorrow, ya have my word.
