Umbreon is currently Taunt bait. Replace Toxic or Protect with Foul Play so that Umbreon can use an opponent's Attack stat against it.

Crunch is still the better option over Night Slash on Sharpedo because chancing on critical hits isn't reliable, and the Defense drops could help in achieving KOs; also, the 10 BP loss isn't worth it:
-Waterfall
-Crunch
-Earthquake (it's here for Steels that don't care about Waterfall and/or Crunch)
-Protect (guarantees that you get a Speed Boost)
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Speed Boost

The main difference between Slowbro and Slowking is their defensive stats; Slowbro has higher Defense than Special Defense and Slowking is the opposite. In UU, Slowbro is the better choice because while both Slowbro and Slowking share the same typing, and hence the same resistances (which are mostly physical in nature), Slowbro has a better time utilizing said resistances because of its higher Defense:

Slowbro:
-Calm Mind
-Scald
-Psyshock
-Slack Off
Nature: Bold
EVs: 248 HP/244 Def/16 SAtk
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Regenerator

Amoonguss is better off using a physically defensive spread to help check Fighting opponents more easily:
-Spore
-Giga Drain
-Clear Smog/Sludge Bomg
-Synthesis/Stun Spore
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Regenerator

or
-Spore
-Giga Drain
-Sludge Bomb
-Hidden Power (Fire)/Stun Spore
Nature: Modest
EVs: 120 HP/128 Def/252 SAtk/8 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Regenerator

I think Machamp makes better use of Substitute to ease prediction:
-Substitute
-DynamicPunch
-Stone Edge
-ThunderPunch/Toxic
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 212 HP/252 Atk/44 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Guts

Fake Out + Last Resort isn't a good way to use Ambipom. While it's tempting, it's not recommended because Ghosts wall the crap out of Ambipom:
-Fake Out
-Return/Double Hit
-Low Kick/Low Sweep
-Beat Up/Shadow Claw
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Technician

or
-Return/Double Hit
-Low Kick/Low Sweep
-Beat Up/Pursuit
-U-turn/Switcheroo
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Technician
