May I suggest some natures for your Pokemon?

Charizard and Samurott are both based on Special Attack so I recommend Modest or Timid nature or at least any nature that raises Special Attack (Rash, Mild, Quiet).

Donphan has a balance of Attack and Defense as its highest stat so I recommend one of the following natures: Brave, Adamant or Jolly. Avoid Bold cos it lowers Attack and Lonely cos it lowers Defense. You could also try a Careful or Sassy nature for increased Special Defense, avoid Calm and Gentle. Also, Relaxed or Impish is good as well for extra Defense.

Electivire's highest stat is Attack so I recommend either Adamant, Jolly, Brave, Naughty or Naive (avoid Lonely, Hasty, Timid and Modest). Gentle and Mild nature must also be avoided due to Electivire's low Defense. Adamant or Jolly is OK if you can cope with the reduced Special Attack (its second-highest stat). Overall, I recommend Naive or Naughty, maybe even a neutral nature.

Since Vileplume is really slow, I recommend a Timid nature to boost that Speed stat a little. Any nature is fine except Jolly, Careful, Impish or Adamant (Vileplume is a special not physical attacker so it wouldn't like lowered Special Attack).

it really depends on your metagross bc IF u were to do online battles IMO you would get wrecked the reason i say that is because you have no walls of any sort you cant win battles without safe switch ins. If you use your team now metagross would have to be the wall and maybe hlding balloon or light clay for a dual screening metagross. Although this is the in-game forum so if you want more tips for online battling go to competetive forums and learn about ev's, iv's, and natures because what most ppl who look at pokemon don't know is that this game is all strategy.

Metagross is physical-based, so any nature that raises Attack. Jolly is also nice, just only give Metagross purely physical-based attacks.
