    Hello all, this will be my second RMT on this site. After i "perfected" my standard team as much as it could be i decided to make a team id been trying to make viable for quite some time, an Eeveelution team. Without further ado...here it is

    Jolteon (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Volt Absorb
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Agility
    - Baton Pass
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    Standard special sweeper, Boltbeam for the attacks with agility for speed...not quite sure why Jolteon isnt OU, with 252 SpA he reaches 350 with a nice speed to back him up, Volt Absorb is nice to give him some HP on ele attacks, a bit frail though, usually cant bring him out untill i get some defensive boosts from Espy and Vaporeon


    Glaceon (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Snow Cloak
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - Baton Pass
    - Wish
    - Ice Beam
    - Hidden Power [Fire]
    Opted for Glaceon over Flareon in this slot, started out with glaceon as a subber, but realized that my team needed some wish support somewhere so it fell here(as opposed to having to run Umbreon as a full cleric) Even without SpA investments he still hits quite hard, when i can pass him a few CM's hes a huge threat. Considering running CM as a backup on him incase Espeon goes down


    Vaporeon (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Water Absorb
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Acid Armor
    - Baton Pass
    - Waterfall
    - Aqua Ring
    This guy can sponge some huge hits with a few acid armors. Rather than dual attacks i opted for aqua ring to be able to pass a bit of extra healing along with wish support(considering switching it to another copy of wish for extra healing that way) also considering Roar on here for some Phazing of my own


    Umbreon (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Synchronize
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 SDef
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Baton Pass
    - Heal Bell
    - Sucker Punch
    - Quick Attack
    This Umbreon has changed alot, but finally opted for quick attack/sucker punch for some priority revenge killing. Not really sold at all on quick attack, but it still does a bit of dmg(usually enough to revenge kill anything around the 20% range once i get some SD boosts over to him) I also needed some more physical attacks on this team so the job fell to him


    Espeon (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Magic Bounce
    EVs: 252 HP / 40 SDef / 216 Spd
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Baton Pass
    - Calm Mind
    - Stored Power
    - Shadow Ball
    Magic bounce has made this guy a monster. Able to bounce back entry hazards, leech seed, and Phazing attacks. Stored Power has a max BP of 680, 1010 with STAB off a SpA of roughly 1000-1100, nothing is going to live through it. Shadow Ball provides additional coverage and can even drop dark type switch ins with a +6, considering switching him to HP Fighting to be able to drop dark types easier


    Leafeon (M) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Leaf Guard
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Swords Dance
    - Leaf Blade
    - X-Scissor
    - Baton Pass
    My main special attacker, considering aerial ace in place of x-scissor, but it's definately come in handy in places...got a nice physical bulk to back it up. recently survived a +6 Dragon Claw from a DD Dragonite with no defense boosts




    Thats the team...i know the EV's probably need ALOT of help, but thats definitely one of my weak points so any help here is appreciated. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated, There is a 3/6 weakness to bug type attacks, though i cant really see dropping any of the 3 bug weaknesses for flareon....let me know what all of you think

    A typo on Leafeon, he's an attacker
    Umbreon should not have 252 attk EVs, its attacking skills are outclassed in every way. Replace it with Flareon, then you have an attacking pokemon, which you need
    Vaporeon's Sp.Attk is higher than its Attk, use Surf/Scald instead of Waterall
    I think you should change Glaceon to a Sp.Attker, so that you have more options to explore since Leafeon has a better defense
    Sorting out the basic problems first, will try and make some more improvements later.

    Flareon does have a nice attack...but i've always had a special place in my heart for Umbreon, and i cant bring myself to drop him. Glaceon(ev's excluded) is set as a special attacker, and im aware vaporeon has a higer base special, but i needed more physical attacks on my team so the job fell to him. Really im trying to focus on more bulk as alot of my offense comes from SD and CM boosts, anything on my team once it reaches +6 is more than capable of dropping pretty much anything that doesn't resist it...the biggest trouble is just getting to that +6...if only Leafeon had Ingrain, eevee bp teams would be unstoppable :D

    Assuming you won't want to take anything off for something that isn't an eeveelution, I guess the only advice I can give is the following: First, you should take off quick attack on Umbreon. Its attack stat isn't that good and having baton pass on it seems kind of useless, but that can be fixed if you give it curse. It also seems like you have a miny BP team, but nothing to really sweep with(you could obviously pass the CMs off, but glaceon and espeon get walled by tyranitar). I suggest that you turn Glaceon into a Flareon with mix attacks so that it can Benefit from any stat boss you pass it. I can't really think of anything else that would really fix this team while staying as a Eevee team.

    edit-
    Take waterfall off of vaporeon for surf.
