    Like the Title says, this is my first team I've put together. I'd like some feedback and maybe suggestions?

    1) Volcarona- Offensive Quiver Dance (Timid)
    Items & EVs: Life Orb 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    -Quiver Dance
    -Fiery Dance
    -Bug Buzz
    -Hidden Power Rock

    2) Hydreigon- Offensive (Modest)
    Items & EVs- Expert Belt 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    -Dark Pulse
    -Draco Meteor
    -Fire Blast
    -U-Turn

    3) Salamence- Dragon Dance (Adamant)
    Items & EVs: Life Orb 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
    -Dragon Dance
    -Outrage
    -Fire Blast (Going to teach it Roost when Black and White2 get released)
    -Earthquake

    4) Metagross- Choice Band (Adamant)
    Items & EVs: Choice Band 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
    -Meteor Mash
    -Hammer Arm
    -Bullet Punch
    -Pursuit

    5) Jellicent- Special Wall (Calm)
    Items & EVs: Leftovers 252 HP / 36 Def / 220 SpD
    -Toxic
    -Scald
    -Recover
    -Shadow Ball

    6) Terrakion- Choice Scarf (Jolly)
    Items & EVs: Choice Scarf 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    -Close Combat
    -Sacred Sword
    -X-Scissor
    -Stone Edge

    In my 6th slot, I use a Choice Scarf Garchomp in game, but I know he's banned in OU. I was thinking of using a Choice Scarf Terrakion instead? As you can see though, I like monsters that hit hard and fast. I have Jellicent as my only wall, but I have no problem getting rid of it for something else. The Pokemon I'm considering having on my team are:
    Terrakion
    Scizor
    Lucario

    So what do you guys think?

    Hey! Welcome to Smogon. You'll want to add in a lot more detail about why exactly you chose your Pokemon, what your team tries to accomplish, etc. I would go over the RMT rules and maybe lurk a bit more on the forums before you officially post an RMT again.

    What shofly said. Make sure the descriptions are nice and beefy! Also, it would be nice to have a list of threats so us raters would know what to cover. Here's a link to the rules: The Rules for RMT
    I will edit in my rate once you get this fixed up.
