    Don't use the ongoing discussion prefix please - that's only for me to use :) nevertheless this fits in Competitive Team Help rather than here so imma move this there. I don't really play OU anymore so I don't have anything really to add but good luck!!

      Thank you for pointing that out. I am a relatively new user so I do not know about a lot of stuff like that.

      It might be a better idea to give some of your Pokemon Protect in a VGC environment since you have some multi-targeting moves (VGCs are double battles). Set-up moves are rarely seen in VGCs due to the fast pace there.

      Rock Slide is the better option on Garchomp and Terrakion to hit both opponents. Give both Protect over Swords Dance. Give Terrakion Quick Attack for priority, or Quick Guard to protect against priority (over EQ).

      Volcarona likes having the freedom to switch moves, since its current set doesn't have the best coverage. It might be a better idea to use this:
      -Heat Wave
      -Bug Buzz
      -Hidden Power (Ground/Ice)/Rage Powder
      -Protect
      Nature:Timid/Modest
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Focus Sash

      I'd add more, but I'm on my phone now, so I might add more when I get back on my computer.

        Thx for the help. I was unsure about using the volcarona my friend uses. I will change the team once I have something to change for all of them.

        Updated Pokemon:
        Terrakion: Ability: Justified
        Nature: Adamant
        EVs: 252 atk,252 Spd, 4 Def
        Item: Expert Belt
        Moves:
        Quick Attack
        Rock Slide
        Close Combat
        Protect
        Garchomp: Ability: Sand Veil
        Nature: Adamant
        EVs: 4 HP, 252 Atk, 252 Spd
        Item: Life Orb
        Moves:
        Earthquake
        Dragon Claw
        Protect
        Rock Slide
        Volcarona: Ability: Flame Body
        Nature: Timid
        EVs: 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
        Item: Focus Sash
        Moves:
        Heat Wave
        Bug Buzz
