    You need to set a nature on Skarm/Suicune, and you're wasting 4EVs on Skarm >_>

    that being said, Skarm doesn't really need the SDef, and I prefer having Ice Beam/more HP on Blissey. but that's just me. Also Jolteon can't roar too well, so consider HP Grass over it.

    Suicune and Skarmory need natures. Salamence's EV's are wierd, more HP is Standard, as most Ice Beams will still OHKO even with the Special Defense, but the HP will help you switch into Physical Attacks more often. Jolteon would perfer Hidden Power: Grass over roar as you already have Suicune Roaring and Skarmory Whirlwinding. Boah isnt used too often anymore, Choice Band TTar is much more, so Id say look into that. You have no Ice attacks, so Dragons my give you trouble, so maybe put Ice Beam On Cune or Blissey could help with that.

    Thanks for the tips guys. I'll try to make an effort to redistribute the team a little better to see what I can get. So far its been a huge hit or miss effort while playing on NetBattle to see what works the best.

    EDIT: I'm thinking of replacing Jolteon if anyone can think of a good replacement. Thanks. :D

    Go with 704 HP on Blissey (on stat), and max DEF, the rest I put it in SA to have a stronger Ice Beam. However, you will always 2KO Salamence, but you can invest more EVs in to OHKO Dugtrio.

    The team is fairly good, and make sure to go with HP Grass on Jolts, cause Swampert gives you some problems.
