Pokemon Diamond Discussion
I've been starting to work on a Poison team, but only have 5 Pokemon and Natures.
Muk - Hasty
Nidoking - Careful
Tentacruel - Impish
Victreebel - Naive
Gengar - Bold
What do you think so far?
Sorry for the double post. My other one originally didn't show up.

Rampardos's Defence and Special Defence are among the lowest in the game.
Its HP is above average but it isn't anything special.
What are you trying to out speed with Muk?
Unless you can't avoid it it is better to lower an attack stat then a defence stat (give Muk a Jolly nature since it won't use special attacks).
Nidoking's nature and EVs are dependant on what moves it knows.
Careful would mainly be for support (ie a move pool similar to Stealth Rock, Toxic Spikes, Earthquake, Roar).
Tentacruel's Special Attack and special moves are more powerful then its Attack and physical moves however it can learn Swords Dance so it's nature should be based on its moves.
Poison and Water has great type coverage when they are combined so Poison Jab/ Sludge Bomb and Waterfall/ Surf should be used with the other two moves for support (Swords Dance, Rapid Spin, Haze, Toxic Spikes, Toxic, Barrier etc).
Victreebel has a move pool for support and stats for wall breaking, you seem to have the right nature here.
Gengar should either have a Modest or a Timid nature gepending on what you prefer (more speed or power).
My Azumarill will one hit KO a Rampardos with Aqua Jet (granted it will also take off half of Tyranitar's HP).
Infernape is a little more sturdy, it is not a sturdy Pokemon but it is more sturdy than Rampardos.
The thing with Infernape is it has high offensive stats and speed (base 104/ 104/ 108) and powerful STAB moves on both sides (Flare Blitz, Fire Blast/Overheat, Close Combat, Focus Blast) so it is dangerous to Pokemon any Pokemon weak to either side, which is a lot of Pokemon.
Infearnape can also learn Bulk Up and Calm Mind which will give it greater offensive and defensive stats on one side.
EDIT: broke the page.
