    As You can see, I am missing a member of my team. Any suggestions? I was thinking of removing Samurott for a better water type? Any thoughts?

    You probably could look into a different Pokemon instead of Samurott, yes. While it is a solid Pokemon, it's simply just not anything outstanding or unique. Plus, Swimming Goggles don't exist. There are plenty of Water-types available, but my preference is a bulky Jellicent with enough speed to outrun most stall-relevant Pokemon and Taunt them before they can recover/status it. There are other options too but this is my favorite. :3

    Jellicent @ Leftovers
    ability: Water Absorb / Cursed Body
    nature: Bold
    EVs: 248 HP / 84 Spe / 176 Def
    - Scald / Surf
    - Will-o-Wisp
    - Taunt
    - Recover

      Kay so Samurott really shouldn't be in a OU competetive team just because it is completely outclassed by Cloyster.
      name: Shell Smash
      move 1: Shell Smash
      move 2: Icicle Spear
      move 3: Rock Blast
      move 4: Razor Shell / Hydro Pump
      item: Life Orb / White Herb
      ability: Skill Link
      nature: Jolly / Naive
      evs: 48 HP / 252 Atk / 208 Spe
      Shell Smash is an amazing move to sweep with and it would really improve your team.
      On ferrothorn replace protect with Leech seed sinc eprotect won't do you any good.

      I also notice your team is Thundurus Weak:
      Nasty Plot Variants will destory 4/6 of your team so you should watch out! I really do not know how to fix this issue though.

        you have volcarana with no taunt/rapid spin...
        also volcarana doesn't need will-o-wisp, you want to be killing everything with it being a sweeper
        ferrothorn seems a bit..pointless too, this being a more offensive team. Spikes should really be replaced with stealth rock, better on offensive teams for quicker set-up with often more damage
