Applying For: Dark/Poison

I'm not going to lie and say I'm a veteran at battling. I've been playing Pokemon for all my life, but I've only recently picked up competitive. It took me a few weeks, but I made my way to AceTrainer using team I made. I have gotten much better since, I started but I still have a long way to go.

I play the server many hours a day, usually close to 5, if not more, but I can also be messaged to join if I need to.

I spent awhile making a team I thought would fit this gym well, and I hope that the team lives up to my expectations. So far, it has done well against most OU teams on Showdown, but it isn't without its weaknesses.

remove sludge bomb on amoonguss as this is rarely ever going to be useful. it's more useful to have hidden power fire / foul play / stun spore. if using hp fire, consider earthquake on venusaur for heatran.

I have a problem with steel types, so I am wary about getting rid of some fire coverage, but I'll switch the moves around
