    Hi Everyone!
    So I will be playing double battles very soon with friends who are coming over, and I needed your help with the team.
    I have already chosen my Pokemon, and please DO NOT suggest legendaries because we will not be using them. Here it goes:

    Reuniclus:
    Magic Guard Ability, Quiet Nature, @Life Orb
    -Trick Room
    -Psychic
    -Focus Blast
    -Protect

    0Speed IV, Ev Spread: 172 HP / 28 Def / 252 SpA / 56 SpD

    I have always liked this little guy, his stats are overall great, except for his speed, that's why it it perfect as a Trick Room setter.

    Rhyperior:
    Lightningrod Ability, Brave Nature
    -Earthquake
    -Rock Slide
    -Megahorn
    -Protect
    Ev Spread: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD

    Rhyperior is one of my favorite offensive tanks. I am planning to summon it with Reuniclus since the beginning. Reuniclus uses Trick Room, Rhyperior Rock Slide. Then I'll switch Reuniclus with the following, to allow Rhyperior to use Earthquake:

    Magnezone:
    Magnet Pull Ability, Quiet Nature @Air Balloon
    -Thunderbolt
    -Flash Cannon
    -Signal Beam
    -Protect

    Magnezone is bulky, has a great special attack, and can be managed to work perfectly good under Trick Room, however, I'm not sure if I can give it another item and use Protect instead, when Rhyperior is about to use it's Earthquake.

    Jellicent:
    Water Absorb, Quiet Nature @Wacan Berry
    -Trick Room
    -Scald
    -Shadow Ball
    -Will-O-Wisp/Protect??

    Jellicent will be a water absorber, along with the role of a Trick Room user. Two are better than one, right?

    Gastrodon:
    Storm Drain, Bold Nature, @Sitrus Berry
    -Muddy Water
    -Ice Beam
    -Earth Power(or Toxic??)
    -Recover
    EVs:252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD

    Gastrodon will be my other water checker. His great bulk and somewhat good moveset are a good addition to my team.

    Chandelure:
    Flash Fire, Timid Nature, @Choice Scarf
    -Heat Wave
    -Shadow Ball
    -Hidden Power Ice
    -Energy Ball
    252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

    Chandelure will be my option in case anything happens and I don't successfully set up Trick Room. He will be fast enough to control the opponents, with HP Ice and Energy Ball working as type coverage.

    I would also really like to use this Eelektross:
    Brave Nature, @Flying Gem:
    -Wild Charge
    -Acrobatics
    -Brick Break
    -Protect
    252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD

    What do you think?

    So this is my team, I'd appreciate any help. I would preferr to keep these Pokemon, however feel free to suggest. Also do you think I'm lacking protection against slow attackers, such as Tyranitar? I do have Water and Grass attacks though, but IDK :/.
    THank you!!
