    Cleric-Vaporeon
    -Rain Dance
    -Muddy Water
    -Hidden Power/Hydro Pump? (can't decide)
    -Ice Beam
    EV:

      give the walrein the leftovers and teach it protect. if you need a physical sweeper then i would guess feraligatr, i have one bred for competition if you want it, VM me.
      you might want to replace some moves on lapras, waterfall is a physical move meaning it won't do much for a special lapras, try surf instead. try to fill in these gaps in the movesets with status moves or protect. i know some of the water starters learn earthquake, the only one off the top of my head is blastoise but i'll check pokedex 3D pro and get back to you on that

      This team needs plenty of work.

      Kingdra doesn't make a good special wall because while it has the same base defenses as Bouffalant, it has lower base HP that undermines them. It's better off with an offensive set:
      -Rain Dance
      -Hydro Pump/Surf
      -Draco Meteor
      -Dragon Pulse/Surf
      Nature: Modest
      EVs: 40 HP/252 SAtk/216 Spe
      Item: Life Orb/Damp Rock
      Ability: Swift Swim

      or
      -Draco Meteor
      -Hydro Pump
      -Dragon Pulse/Ice Beam
      -Surf/Ice Beam
      Nature: Modest/Timid
      EVs: 28 HP/252 SAtk/228 Spe
      Item: Choice Specs
      Ability: Swift Swim

      or
      -Substitute
      -Dragon Dance
      -Waterfall
      -Outrage
      Nature: Adamant
      EVs: 40 HP/228 Atk/12 Def/228 Spe
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Swift Swim

      or
      -Dragon Dance
      -Waterfall
      -Outrage
      -Rest
      Nature: Adamant
      EVs: 152 HP/96 Atk/32 SDef/228 Spe
      Item: Chesto Berry
      Ability: Swift Swim

      or
      -Dragon Dance
      -Outrage
      -Waterfall/Hydro Pump
      -Hidden Power (Fire)/Draco Meteor
      Nature: Lonely/Naughty
      EVs: 136 Atk/136 SAtk/236 Spe
      Item: Life Orb
      Ability: Swift Swim

      You call Vaporeon a cleric and it doesn't have Heal Bell? It can provide Wish support, considering its massive base HP:
      -Wish
      -Protect
      -Scald
      -Toxic/Ice Beam
      Nature: Bold
      EVs: 248 HP/252 Def/8 Spe
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Water Absorb

      Gastrodon is a better special wall than Walrein (because the latter's defensive typing sucks). It also checks opposing Water Pokémon nicely:
      -Earthquake/Earth Power
      -Scald/Ice Beam
      -Toxic
      -Recover
      Nature: Sassy/Calm
      EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 SDef
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Storm Drain

      Starmie and Rotom-W are both stronger and faster than Lapras when it comes to special sweeping. And why are you calling Lapras a special sweeper when it has mostly physical moves?:

      Starmie:
      -Hydro Pump/Surf
      -Ice Beam
      -Thunderbolt
      -Rapid Spin/Recover
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Life Orb/Leftovers/Expert Belt
      Ability: Natural Cure

      or
      -Hydro Pump/Surf
      -Ice Beam
      -Thunderbolt
      -Psyshock/Trick
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf
      Ability: Natural Cure

      Rotom-W:
      -Volt Switch
      -Hydro Pump
      -Will-o-Wisp
      -Pain Split/Hidden Power (Ice)
      Nature: Modest
      EVs: 184 HP/4 Def/144 SAtk1/176 Spe
      Item: Leftovers

      or
      -Volt Switch
      -Hydro Pump
      -Will-o-Wisp/Thunder Wave
      -Pain Split
      Nature: Calm
      EVs: 248 HP/28 SAtk/228 SDef
      Item: Leftovers

      or
      -Volt Switch
      -Hydro Pump
      -Hidden Power (Ice)
      -Trick/Thunderbolt
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

      Carracosta's defensive typing is bad. Really bad. Slowbro makes a better physical wall:
      -Scald
      -Psyshock/Psychic
      -Thunder Wave/Toxic/Ice Beam
      -Slack Off
      Nature: Bold
      EVs: 248 HP/244 Def/16 SAtk
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Regenerator

      or
      -Calm Mind
      -Scald
      -Psyshock
      -Slack Off
      Nature: Bold
      EVs: 248 HP/244 Def/16 SAtk
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Regenerator

      Or you can try Cloyster as a physical attacker, as this team is massively weak to special walls like Blissey:
      -Shell Smash
      -Icicle Spear
      -Rock Blast
      -Hydro Pump/Razor Shell
      Nature: Naive/Jolly
      EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: White Herb
      Ability: Skill Link
