Espeon seems kind of useless on this team given Starmie can already spin. Espeon frankly sucks
at stopping hazards anyway because like all hazards crush it so i mean. :x

Id suggest you remove it and replace it for something such as Venusaur whom can benfit from the sun, lure in steels and crush them clearing a way for a Mence Outrage sweep. Venusaur also checks Politoed for you, something which nothing currently does. Put Venusaur over Espeon.

Gengar is one of my Entry Hazards blockers and is my counter to Psychic types like Jirachi and Alakazam.

I sincerely hope you are not using it to counter either of those lol.

Anyway Gengar seems out of place on this team and nothing resists Rock at all which means every time Tyranitar or Terrakion shows its face something dies. Id put in a good sturdy counter to both of those or at least a rock resist. Replace Gengar with a rock resist.

Ninetales wants

Ninetales (M) @ Leftovers

EVs: 144 HP / 252 SAtk / 112 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Sunny Day / Pain Split
- Fire Blast
- SolarBeam

Life Orb and Sub just kills you and makes you lose the weather war.

Lastly, Starmie doesnt want Hydro Pump in the sun because it makes it weak and girly, use this set.

Starmie @ Leftovers
252 S.Atk / 252 Speed /6 HP
Trait : Natural Cure
Timid Nature
- Psyshock / Psychic

Offers best coverage in sun.

Hope this helps good luck.
