If you're using a Careful nature on Xatu, replace Psychic with Night Shade, since Careful will weaken Psychic because Careful lowers Special Attack. If you do choose to keep Psychic, replace the Careful nature with a Calm one.

I definitely agree on replacing Charizard, considering that both it and Darmanitan are Fire Pokemon, adding on some unwanted Water and Rock weaknesses. Your team is full of Special attackers (Darmanitan is the only physical attacker here), but I can kind of see Raikou setting up on Special walls with CM then hitting them really hard, even though it takes a while. Still, another physical attacker can't hurt, like Scrafty:
