    I can see some flaws with this team.

    While Kecleon is certainly an interesting Pokemon to use, its Color change ability has the potential to backfire on you. Golurk can also set up Stealth Rock while posing an offensive presence, unlike Kecleon, though the lack of recovery hurts:
    -Stealth Rock
    -Earthquake
    -Shadow Punch
    -Ice Punch
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 80 HP/252 Atk/176 Spe
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Iron Fist

    Why use a Calm nature on Ludicolo if it has Swords Dance? If it were to use Swords Dance, it should be Adamant or Jolly. Heck, Swords Dance Ludicolo isn't that viable anymore:
    -Scald
    -Giga Drain
    -Synthesis
    -Leech Seed
    Nature: Calm
    EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 SDef
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Rain Dish

    Dual screen support is necessary for Trick Room Beheeyem, and this team doesn't have it:
    -Psychic/Psyshock
    -Thunderbolt
    -Signal Beam/Recover
    -Hidden Power (Ground)
    Nature: Quiet
    EVs: 252 HP/252 SAtk/4 SDef
    Item: Life Orb
    Ability: Analytic

    A Quiet nature ruins the point of Combusken's Speed Boost; change the nature to Modest.
