gah why did you put them in quote tags now I can't see the sets while I'm trying to post >:(

You're aware that a Pokemon team has to be six members, right? (Unless you're playing VGC... but since you didn't mention that I can't assume you are.) I can't really rate your full team until it's all here.

First off, that Gigalith set works best as a lead. Second off, you should be running 252 Atk, not Def; after all, the goal is to abuse Sturdy. Third off, that set is illegal because Custap Berry hasn't been released yet. If it's at all possible, I'd advise against using Gigalith and trying for a more useful, non-suicide Pokemon.

Chandelure's set looks okay, I guess... but Ghost/Fire has terrible coverage. Plus, what do you do when something outspeeds and uses Sub? I really don't see the merit in running Will-o-Wisp + Hex over Shadow Ball + Coverage but I guess you can do whatever you want...

Hydreigon wants a more offensive item. Life Orb or Expert Belt or Choice (Scarf/Specs) would all be wonderful.

Braviary... is really bad. It's not going to hit anything very hard at all, and you're trying to do too much with one set (plus, Fly is an awful competitive move). You should consider another Pokemon for this slot.

I'll come by and say some more stuff if you finish up the team or whatever. If it's for VGC, I don't know if I will because I don't play VGC...

Gigalith needs to be in the lead slot.

I agree with Vrai; you need something over Will-o-Wisp and Hex; it's an unreliable combination, IMO. Shadow Ball and Hidden Power (Fighting) are the better options.

Braviary has a very good movepool in comparison to its fellow Normal/Flying types. This set should suffice, I guess:
-Crush Claw/Return
-Brave Bird
-Superpower
-Shadow Claw/Rock Slide
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band/Choice Scarf
Ability: Sheer Force/Defiant

This is my new team, but I need another Pokemon for it. Any suggestions?

I realize that Braviary's original moveset was the god of suck.

Lol why are you adding sp attack EVs to Braviary and then give it physical attack moves? I sure hope that's a typo.

Nature on needs fixing on Braviary and Hydreigon. Get one that benefits their speed or attack.

Will go through your moveset later after food.

@ Leftovers
Nature: Adamant
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
- Stealth Rock
- Rock Blast
- Toxic
- Explosion

Here's your lead.
Set up SR, and Toxic if needed, then Rock Blast. If you want, switch, or Explosion. :D


@ Balloon/Wide Lens
Nature: Modest
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 4 HP/252 SpAtk/252 Spd
- Fire Blast/Flamethrower
- Shadow Ball
- Energy Ball
- HP Fighting

Modest Nature boost Sp. Attack and lowers Attack, which we don't need for him.
Balloon is equipped to avoid a first Earthquake, Wide Lens for better accuracy.
Fire Blast/Flamethrower and Shadow Ball for STAB, Energy Ball and HP Fighting for strong types coverage. About the Fire-type move, the first has more power but less accuracy, the second viceversa (if you equip Wide Lens, definitively teach Fire Blast).


@ Life Orb
Nature: Adamant
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd
- Tailwind
- Brave Bird
- Superpower
- U-Turn/Rock Slide

Set up Tailwind, then Superpower, and if its Attack and Defense are too lowered (even from opponent), U-Turn. Rock Slide for some coverage, and Brave Bird for STAB.
Sheer Force + Life Orb combo doesn't give recoil damage.


@ White Herb (if you have DM)
Nature: Timid
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP/252 SpAtk/252 Spd
- Cheer Up
- U-Turn
- Dark Pulse
- Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor

First, set up 2 or 3 Cheer Up, to boost Sp. Atk.
Then, Dark Pulse.
If you need, use Dragon Pulse, or then try for a Draco Meteor (MUST equip WH), so you can 1HKO 2 Pokès. U-Turn just in case you need to switch, with the Atk boost will do more damage.

No offence but...
It's a bit bland though, isn't it?
Most of these Pokemon are overused.
As for the team, it's pretty solid.
Maybe add some less used Pokemon to the team.
