    Hopefully i do this right this time. My team is not for competitive playing and i only have the rule of no legendaries, psuedo-legendaries i am fine with as you will see in the team list:

    Tyranitar:
    Nature: Jolly
    Item: Quick Claw
    Ability: Sand Stream
    Move Set:
    Stone Edge
    Earthquake
    Crunch
    Hyper Beam

    I have used Tyranitar in every team i've made since Crystal version and had this same move set apart from stone edge which was at the time, rock slide. He has always been the centre of my team and used to dish out the most damage as possible. Basically he is my go-to guy for a sticky situation

    Lapras:
    Nature: Modest
    Item: Mystic Water
    Ability: Water Absorb
    Move Set:
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Thunder
    Sheer Cold

    I have always liked lapras although i don't use him to often. i decided on it as i felt it could last a while in battle and have a few surprise moves to trick the opponent. if he is not weak to an opponents pokemon, he is who i will use

    Muk:
    Nature: Modest
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Sticky Hold
    Move Set:
    Flamethrower
    Sludge Bomb
    Minimize
    Toxic

    Normally i have always hated muk as he seems to be quite hard to take down but i decided on him for this team for some extra defense. i plan to use him to poison the enemy as much as possible and remain being hard to hit. i added flamethrower to take care of any steel types he has to battle.

    Magnezone:
    Nature: Modest
    Item: Magnet
    Ability: Magnet Pull
    Move Set:
    Zap Cannon
    Gyro Ball
    Lock On
    Flash Cannon

    I decided on magnezone because he doesn't seem to be a very common pokemon to battle and appears to be able to take a few hits and still do some damage. he will be used to slow the opponent down with the zap cannon/lock on combo

    Gallade:
    Nature: Brave
    Item: Focus Band
    Ability: Steadfast
    Move Set:
    Psychic
    Pyscho Cut
    Close Combat
    Thunderbolt

    I plan to use Gallade as possibly the 2nd main attack of my team. it can do some serious damage at times. i gave it thunderbolt to take care of its flying weakness and psychic/pyscho cut will take care of ghost types.

    Garchomp:
    Nature: Brave
    Item: Dragon Fang
    Ability: Sand Veil
    Move Set:
    Dragon Claw
    Earthquake
    Dragon Rush
    Fire Blast

    Garchomp will be the primary attacker of my team. I decided on brave for the extra boost in attack to quickly take out who he is up against. fire blast was added to the list to take out his main weakness (ice) and the rest of the moves are to suit his battle style really.

    I hope that i have done this properly this time and look forward to hearing your views. cheers

    I think your team is conflicting a little bit. Three pokemon that are weak to your weather and some others have some flaws. I advise you to check out battling 101. Also what Tier/Generation is this for? You also need longer descriptions for your pokemon. Any threats? Have you tested it at all?

    Hi and welcome to Smogon !

    Unfortunately, this team is breaking several rules (no EVs listed, descriptions are too short, team is not tested etc) so I'll have to lock it.
    Feel free to look around Smogon to get familiar with competitive play.
