      It looks like a well balanced team, but as always, they have their flaws. It would be helpful if you described what purpose each of them had. Garchomp could sweep a lot of your Pokes there. Not really much dragon-type support. If I was to say what was best, Feraligatr seems to be a well balanced little guy. I can't see anything wrong with it. As for a 6th poke, I don't know what you could put. 'Nyway, that's just my opinion.

              Tiers are the rankings that Pokemon have that vary among their stats, movesets and that sorta stuff. You can see what tier your Pokemon are in by looking on Bulbapedia. I was assuming this was all-tiers because you didn't clarify that. But it helps to see what they are so when you battle you know what you're up against.

              I'm not sure if Bulbapedia has their own tiers or something, but Smogon's is the standard tier list that is used by mostly everyone bar communities that find the need to make their own generally inaccurate tier list.

                yes, I have to admit, this isn't really a competetive team. it looks more like a powerful in-game team. you seem to be based on "no legendaries" as opposed to "teirs" - this is OK for an In-game scenario, but when it comes to competetive battling, you need to move to different levels (don't worry, there was once a time {not long ago} when I was the same, but everyone learns at some point)

                ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

                First of all, you want to have a lead that sets up an Entry Hazard. I suggest this set, due to its typing, defence and speed.

                Gliscor @ Leftovers
                Ability: Sand Veil
                Nature: Jolly
                EV's: 252 HP, 4 DEF, 252 Speed
                Moveset:
                Earthquake
                Stealth Rock/Taunt
                U-Turn/Taunt
                Roost

                secondly, you want something to cover for your lead's weaknesses, as this isn't a scuiside lead (like Azelf)

                Tentacruel @ Leftovers
                Ability: Liquid Ooze
                Nature: Calm
                EV's: 252 HP, 120 DEF, 136 SDEF
                Moves:
                Toxic Spikes
                Rapid Spin
                Surf
                Sludge Bomb/HP Fire/Giga Drain
                (giga drain is only to help get rid of water types, while HP fire takes out Gliscor's dreaded Ice types)

                now, you always have the option here to switch leads, as the two are interchangeable and work very well together

                --------------------------------------------------------------------------

                now, i'm only helping you with leads here, but don't forget that some legendaries are allowed - if you want to have a proper look at the pokemon you want to use, you should check here - that is the list of OU pokemon, which are the best-of-the-best (without being banned)

                if you want more help, please PM or VM me, D_A or Aragornbird (i'm no expert, but Dark Azelf and AragornBird are PC's {i'd say best} strategists and competetive battlers)
