Hey there everyone, I was wondering if you could analyse my team for VGC this year? This is my first competition and I'm nervous as heck. I've been practicing this team over and over using online simulators, and it seems to work really well, but I have a feeling something's missing...Help please?

My team is as follows (Click show for specifics)
Porygon2:
Item: Eviolite
Nature: Bold
Ability: Trace
EV's: 252 HP, 176 Def, 80 SpD
Moveset:
Ice Beam (Should I change for Blizzard?)
Thunderbolt (I don't have anyone who would be immune to discharge :/
Thunder Wave (I prefer it over Toxic, much more reliable as it cuts speed)
Recover

Espeon
Item: Light Clay
Nature: Rash
Ability: Magic Bounce
EV's: 252 HP, 252 Spe, 4 HP
Moveset:
Light Screen
Reflect
Hidden Power Ghost (I know, I know, but this was the only hidden ability Eevee I have :/)
Psychic

Gengar
Item: Leftovers
Nature: Timid
Ability: Levitate
EV's: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4HP
Moveset:
Shadow ball
Thunderbolt
Focus Blast
Protect
I'm considering running a focus sash destiny bond Gengar instead, but is that really successful?

Metagross
Item: Choice Band
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Clear Body
EV's: 162HP, 252ATT, 94 SpE
Moveset:
Bullet Punch
Meteor Mash
Earthquake
Zen Headbutt
Should I replace Earthquake or Bullet Punch for Pursuit? I'm not too sure if i want to let go of Bullet Punch, as I prefer priority moves.

Staraptor
Nature: Adamant
Item: Choice Scarf
Ability: Intimidate
EV's: 252 ATT, 252 SpE, 4SpD
Moveset:
Brave Bird
U-Turn
Close Combat
Return
Not too sure about the 4 SpD, should I Put it on defense instead?

Thundurus
Nature: Timid
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Prankster
EV's: 252 Spe, 252 SpA, 4 Def
Moveset:
Thunder
Thunder Wave
Hidden Power Ice
Taunt
Considering removing Thunder Wave as I have Porygon2 but keeping taunt, if I did remove it what move would be better?


So yeah, If anyone can give ANY feedback that would be brilliant. If you have another hidden ability Eevee spare I would also love to trade for that. Thanks for your time. :D

Welcome to Smogon!

If you want help with your team, I suggest posting it in the Other Teams section of the RMT (Rate My Team) forum. However, be sure to read the RMT rules before posting, and make sure your post follows them. In particular, you need to describe your team - why you chose the Pokémon and their sets, how you use them together in battle, what sort of things you tend to have trouble dealing with, etc. A couple of sentences for each Pokémon is a good description length to aim for, and you can look at the other threads in the forum to get a better idea of what's expected.

As for the Eevee, you can simply check out this thread to see if anyone has one that you might want. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask them in the Simple Questions/Simple Answers thread, or check out the Wi-Fi forum, which is where most of the trading on Smogon happens.
