Feel free to post all about your own teams for feedback but please be respectful and do not post before somebody else's has been analyzed.

Modest, EVs: 254 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 Hp
Draco Meteor
Protect
Flamethrower
Surf

Darmanitan
Adamant, EVs: 254 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 Sp. Def
U Turn
Flare Blitz
Rock Slide
Superpower

Ferrothorn
Sassy, EVs: 252 Hp, 252, Sp. Def, 4 Atk
Leech Seed
Protect
Spikes
Gyro Ball

Suggestions and possible strategies are welcome and encouraged! Ideas on my final three pokemon are also greatly appreciated. THANK YOU

... I don't even understand your first sentence. Also, you need items on your team. I don't know if that Hydreigon is choiced or what or I don't even know.

Don't run Protect on Hydreigon. Run Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse, or U-turn.

Darmanitan looks fine from a move perspective.

Ferrothorn needs a more mixed spread to abuse those amazing defenses; you can't go too far one way or the other or you risk losing its viability. 252 HP / 48 Def / 208 SpDef is a good spread.

Lastly, we're not here to make a team for you. If you go find three more Pokemon and play around with it, I'd be perfectly fine rating the rest of your team, but until then, there's no point.

Could you please define a "more mixed spread"? like which moves should i use to abuse them?

and hydreigon is holding a life orb, darmanian is holding a choice scarf, and ferrothorn leftovers.

^ This, we need a full team before we can rate anything, otherwise this would be better posted in the Simple Q&A thread :(

Mienshao isn't good at Endrevving as Lucario is. It's better in the lead slot with:
-Fake Out
-U-turn
-Hi Jump Kick/Drain Punch
-Stone Edge
nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Regeneration

The lack of STAB hurts on Ferrothorn. It takes time for it to set up Curse, so I'd make it into this instead:
-Stealth Rock/Leech Seed
-Spikes/Leech Seed
-Power Whip
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave
Nature: Relaxed/Sassy
EVs: 252 HP/48 Def/208 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Eelektross is a good attacker under Trick Room, but under normal circumstances, it's too slow to sweep, IMO. I'd replace it with Jellicent, who has excellent synergy with Ferrothorn:
-Scald
-Toxic/Will-o-Wisp
-Recover
-Taunt/Shadow Ball/Ice Beam
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb

Archeops is interesting, but it's screwed badly by Scizor. I'd have:
-Rock Slide/Stone Edge
-Acrobatics
-Earthquake
-U-turn/Dragon Claw/Crunch
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Flying Gem

or

-Rock Slide/Stone Edge
-Earthquake
-Crunch/Dragon Claw
-U-turn
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band

Hydreigon is best with:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Surf
-U-turn
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf

Reuniclus is terrible. I'd have:
-Psychic/Psyshock
-Focus Blast/Calm Mind
-Shadow Ball/Calm Mind
-Recover
Nature: Bold/Modest
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef or 252 HP/4 Def/252 SAtk
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard
