I suppose this is an in-game team?

I'm not too sure about Mega Drain on Serperior; I think Outrage (Tutor Move) would be a better option as it hits more Pokémon for neutral damage. I recommend learning Zebstrika some moves of other types, like Overheat, so it has better coverage. Simipour is good enough in my opinion and Vanillite doesn't exactly have many moves to play with. I do think Ice Beam is a must-have. Emolga is a bit unnecessary in my opinion, it has the same coverage as Zebstrika and Unfezant. I'd recommend swapping it for a Golurk, as it is not only powerful, but it also has good coverage.

Good luck!

Hey there!

You've got a nice looking team here! But for competitive Pokemon we usually like to see things like the Pokemon's nature, EVs, held items, etc, so the raters can have a good understanding of your Pokemon and be able to give you the best rate possible. But since you're still working on your team, I'll just recommend a few simple things to start.

Serperior's physical movepool is pretty shallow, however, if you'd like to use Coil, there's still a fair amount you can do. Since Coil boosts Attack (as opposed to Special Attack) you definitely want to replace Mega Drain. Test out Substitute, Coil, Leaf Blade, and Dragon Tail. This way, you can switch into Pokemon that Serperior can handle (Alomomola etc), set up Substitute, and boost away with Coil. Leaf Blade becomes your primary STAB, and because Serperior has the advantage of being faster than most phazers in it's tier, Dragon Tail pulls the set together, making Serperior a good defensive pivot in play.

P-Sign already covered Zebstrika, but for chronology's sake I'll go a bit more in depth. There's kind of only one thing Zebstrika can do -- Attack. So while you're on the right track, there's still a few things Zebstrika needs to be at its best. For one, I recommend this set : Thunderbolt, Hidden Power [Grass], Overheat, and Volt Switch. Thunderbolt is self explanatory, and HP [Grass] can help take out bulky Waters like Quagsire who resist Zebstrika's electric attacks. Overheat is just an overall good coverage move, and finally Volt Switch keeps up your offensive momentum and goes in tandem excellently with Choice Specs, Zebstrika's recommended held item.

Unfortunately, I don't have time to finish so I'm going to leave this rate alone for now. Please let one of the raters know if you want a more competitive, in depth explanation or recommendation for your Pokemon.

Best of luck! :>

EDIT :

If this is an In-Game team and you don't plan on using your Pokemon competitively, than check out the In-Game Team Help section of this forum found here. The raters there can give you way more relevant advice for your team. Again, good luck!
