    I'd suggest you write a short paragraph for each mon describing its role and why you chose the movesets + ev spreads that you have. If you fix this up i would be happy to rate the team =). One of the rules here is "— Try to use an appealing, easy-to-read format with useful descriptions.". It is not there to be mean, it just helps us raters and shows us you have tested, put effort into and understand how the team works. Can also be useful to list any threats or issues you have found with the team. Smogon words this better than i do so read the quote below =).

    The best rates can only come after playing with the team. However, the raters are obviously not willing to play thirty battles with your team to figure out what is wrong with it and how it works. This is why we want you to tell us about your team.

    Synergy is important, right? The purpose of any given team is to be able to work together in any situation to win. If we don't know how your team works, we can only assume things about your team - and that does not lead to good rates. The more descriptive you are about your teams and your weaknesses and what you would like for your team, the better the raters can help you. This is a rule for a reason - and comments like "RHYPERIOR OHKOS **** WITH CB ROCK WRECKER LOL", “standard X”, “Mixed Sweeper”, etc does not tell us anything other than the fact that you shouldn't be building teams nor rating them.

    Be descriptive. Tell us how each member contributes. You can do this by telling us why you chose a specific Pokemon (and "it's my FAVORITE" doesn't count – we are competitive here!) and how it contributes to the overall picture.

    You can add one or two logs in your RMT, to give raters an idea on how you use the team to gain a greater understanding of the team itself. However, this is only a suggestion and is not necessary. If logs are used, they should be in code tags, so that RMTs are not clogged up with piles of long text.
    This is just a suggestion, you are not breaking any PC rules by just having the movesets, however like just explained it would help us raters and in turn help you out aswell as you would receive a more well informed rate.
