You're best of using the 252/252 EV spread on the following Pokemon: Blaziken, Reuniclus, Suicune, Celebi and Blissey.

Rest is way too risky on Suicune if it has Water Absorb, since it lacks Sleep Talk; it could be better with this:
-Calm Mind
-Surf/Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam
-Hidden Power (Electric)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb

IMO, I'd use Flare Blitz on Blaziken over Blaze Kick for more power. I'd also use Earth Power or Hidden Power (Fire) somewhere on Celebi so it can have a way for dealing with Steel Pokemon.

Blaziken is banned if you follow our tiers, which are the same as Smogon's.

I dunno about WiFi, but yes, just figured I'd inform you.

Yuh but celebi is supposed to be more defensive so l cant take out recover or leech seed to add a new attack.And l want it to have psychic so that it can deal with breloom better while l also want it to have grass knot cuz l dont have other grass type moves in my team.
Also,what if suicune never gets hit by a water type move? he will not have access to recovery.And l dont put sleep talk cuz i dont think that he is in danger after 1-2 calm minds.He will have exquisite sp.def,great defense and good hp.So he is safe.And l also dont like the idea of it having only surf as its attack.What if he faces a bulky water type? Or a grass type?

Didn't you see the Suicune set I posted? It has 2 coverage attacks (Ice Beam and Hidden Power Electric) to go along with Surf. You'll just have to predict a Water attack from your opponent, and if you have a feeling a Water attack is coming, switch to Suicune.

You don't need Leech Seed and Recover; you really only need one or the other as extraneous recovery. The benefits of both are pretty obvious; Leech Seed keeps draining health even when you're forced to switch out (say, versus a Blissey) and Recover is one-turn and heals much more than Leech Seed ever will. However, hitting Steel-types before they set up is much more important than having two methods of recovery.
