For Donphan, what's the point of an Adamant nature if you're investing only in HP and defenses? Even though you'll lose out on bulk here, the typical EV spread should be 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def just so Donphan hits harder; otherwise, use an Impish nature.

While it's true that Rotom-H's STABs have good coverage, it's stopped cold by Water/Grounds like Gastrodon and the occasional Swampert and Quagsire. Replace Thunder with Hidden Power Grass so that it can hit those threats hard. You can also use Hidden Power Ice for Dragons as well, since they also resist Electric/Fire, though Dragonite and Salamence are neutral to Electric. The extra coverage is more worth it than the extra power against rain teams.

Other than that, team looks interesting, to say the least. Nice job breaking the Smogon mold there.
