Here is an example rate of what I just did. I dont like my format very much; it looks sloppy at best.
Any help would be nice.

Your rate was decent and seems well thought, but I thinkthe suggestion of changing Crobat was wrong. While his Crobat set was really bad (Nasty Plot wtf) and he should definitely be using Choice Band or Standard Crobat (using that is what you should have suggested), without Crobat he's team is extremely weak to Heracross, Mienshao and especially, to Scrafty.
While you're right on the Chandelure weakness (good catch) the best way to fix it without changing the team much would be suggesting changing Porygon2's ability to Trace
.You did a good job suggesting using a Special Attacking Nidoking instead of the set he had, though.
Regarding the format, I think it's decent, but you should probably drop the ''synergy'' thing since it isn't important (you are covering threats, not simply types)
