Wouldn't it be a better idea to max out Amoonguss' HP and Defense and put the remaining into Special Defense? That's just not a good way to utilize bulky EVs, IMO, unless the Pokemon's defenses are way lower than the HP.

Eelektross is better off with a Careful nature with 252 HP/4 Atk/252 SDef because Coil will already take care of its Attack and Defense.

Hypno's kinda...outclassed by loads of stuff because of its lackluster offenses. Musharna can do the same thing Hypno can, only better:
-Calm Mind
-Psychic/Stored Power
-Moonlight
-Heal Bell/Signal Beam/Hidden Power (Fighting)
Nature: Bold
EVs: 240 HP/252 Def/16 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Synchronize

or
-Psychic
-Signal Beam
-Hidden Power (Ground)/Trick Room
-Moonlight
Nature: Modest/Quiet
EVs: 252 HP/252 SAtk/4 SDef
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Synchronize

or
-Psychic
-Signal Beam
-Hidden Power (Ground)
-Trick/Sleep Talk
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 HP/252 SAtk/4 Spe
Item: Choice Specs
Ability: Synchronize

or
-Psychic
-Moonlight
-Thunder Wave/Baton Pass
-Heal Bell/Baton Pass
Nature: Bold
EVs: 240 HP/252 Def/16 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Synchronize

While Scald can spread burns around, Alomomola won't be doing too much damage with it because of its bad Special Attack. Generally, Waterfall is the better option; you already have Toxic for a status move.

Since you said that Murkrow is dead weight here, Skuntank is a better option over it as a Psychic/Ghost trapper because of its better defensive typing:
-Pursuit
-Sucker Punch
-Taunt
-Crunch/Poison Jab
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/220 SDef/36 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Dread Plate/BlackGlasses
Ability: Stench/Aftermath
