You don't need three dark type moves on Absol.
Absol?
CChariz probably took it out
get haxorus, fraxure would still suck with eviolite. A haxorus would be better.
But then it would be an OU team. Simple logic right der.
Yes,that's why i went with Stu(Fraxure)
Sunny Day + Samurot?

Ok, here i go. I found the previous answer not to my taste so i'm answering this.
Charizard....... No Sunny Day and SolarBeam. Never use Sunny Day if your team is not a Sun team which Chlorophyll abusers and such. I'll be suggesting a whole new set:

Charizard @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Blaze
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Fire Blast
- Air Slash
- Hidden Power [Grass]
- Focus Blast

You could put Solar Power in there but since you're not using Sunny Day on this set and nobody else will be setting the Sun, Blaze is the preferred Ability here. EVs and Nature allow him to sweep while Scarf allows him to outspeed the majority of the NU tier. Fire Blast is STAB and normally OHKO'es, if not, 2HKO'es when unresisted. Air Slash is his second STAB and it hits hard. The flinch chance can be very useful, saving you from desperate situations. HP Grass is coverage against Water types and Rock types while Focus Blast is additional coverage.

To Samurott now. I don't like your moveset at all, so once again, i will be suggesting a whole new set.

Samurott @ Life Orb
Trait: Torrent
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Swords Dance
- Waterfall
- Megahorn
- Aqua Jet

I always found Physical Samurott more effective than Special Samurott. So you switch in on a resisted move and you use Swords Dance. Waterfall is STAB and OHKO'es most of the tier at +2 when unresisted. Aqua Jet is STAB as well and is for Pokemon you know that you can't outspeed. Megahorn is coverage against Grass types.

I see that you're trying to make Meganium your Physical Wall. It's nice but i have someone better. We'll be replacing Meganium for Tangela.

Tangela @ Eviolite
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Giga Drain
- Sleep Powder
- Hidden Power [Rock]
- Knock Off

Tangela is a defensive beast! Eviolite + EVs + Nature gives him a lot of Defense. Giga Drain is STAB and recovery. Sleep Powder gets rid of threats while HP Rock is coverage against Fire, Bug and Flying types. Knock Off is awfully useful in NU as so many Pokemon rely on Eviolite and Choice Items. If you don't like Tangela's Stats, i got another choice:

Weezing @ Black Sludge
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Def / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Will-O-Wisp
- Clear Smog
- Sludge Bomb
- Pain Split

Weezing is also a Defensive beast. Black Sludge over Leftovers for more recovery. Will-O-Wisp cripples Offensive threats while Clear Smog gets rid of set-up sweepers. Sludge Bomb is STAB and is there so he's not a Taunt bait. Pain Split is semi-reliable recovery.
To Fraxure. Now if you follow my suggestions, you'll see that your team is essentially composed of Physical Attackers. Fraxure is a great Pokemon, and the set you have here is close to perfect (I use Swords Dance over Taunt for a Double-Dance set) but he's not supporting your team much. Simisage fits your team well and i will explain why later.

Simisage @ Life Orb
Trait: Glutonny
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Nasty Plot
- Energy Ball
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Simisage completes your Fire-Water-Grass core. Nasty Plot boosts his Special Attack to great levels. Energy Ball is STAB and hits hard when unresisted. Focus Blast is coverage against Ice types. HP Ice is coverage against Flying types and other Grass types.

To Zangoose. Your set is good but.... Let's go with a non-Smogon set this time.

Zangoose @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Toxic Boost
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Facade
- Close Combat
- Night Slash
- Quick Attack

Dis set is super boss. Toxic Orb acts like a Choice Band because of Toxic Boost. Facade is STAB and is boosted by Toxic Orb. Close Combat is coverage against Rock and Steel types. Night Slash hits Ghosties for super-effective. Quick Attack is STAB and is for Pokes that Zangoose can't outspeed.

Rampardos's turn. Smogon's Rock Polish set is not that great. So, once again, i'll be suggesting a whole new set.

Rampardos @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 Atk / 220 Spd / 20 Def / 16 SDef
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Head Smash
- Earthquake
- Fire Punch
- Zen Headbutt

I'm tired of typing..... Figure it out yourself..... xD

I hope i helped you!

Thanks, SK.
Also jcm where'd you get the rampardos set. Not so original
I am allowed to use Smogon sets, i just don't copy their descriptions.
I copied the escription because I'm not as good with ram
Trachy is the king JCM.

Alright lets get going
So charizard, appears to have not item so let's go with either a leftovers.
Now moveset
So Belly drum
Fire punch
Earthquake
Substitute
You don't want solar power unless your doing a full on sun team. I know you will disagree but Pokemon like charizard who sunny day get killed before they attack. This set is epic. You sub. Then belly drum and give Evs in attack and speed. Then fire punch has 640 power from a normally effective move.

I like Samaotts moves but replace surf with scald and take his speed Evs and bring them to hp for a little bulk.

Meganium is good, so no changes.

Fracture needs superpower, get rid of x scissor. Superpower deals with water types that are also ice. You have a Huge lapras weakness. Lapras uses Hydropump on charizard, ice beam on meganium and fraxure. And thunder on samoroutt. Oh and hydro pump on rampardos. That's 5 Pokemon down. Super power is a must.

I don't like a zangoose in general but for one he's good.

Now rampardos. You played smogons rock polish set. I personally like the choice scarf set more.

Moveset EVs item choice scarf.
~ Head Smash
~ Earthquake
~ Fire Punch
~ Zen Headbutt
252 Atk / 20 Def / 16 SpD / 220 Spe
While equipped with a Choice Scarf, Rampardos's lackluster Speed becomes less of an issue. He can function as a revenge killer or clean-up sweeper, outspeeding most unboosted threats and crushing them with his mighty Attack. Head Smash is his STAB attack of choice, as nothing can take the assault unscathed. Earthquake provides pseudo-EdgeQuake coverage and, thanks to Mold Breaker, can hit Pokemon with the Levitate ability. Fire Punch is mainly for Grass-types, especially Torterra, which resists the two former moves. Zen Headbutt can crush the many Fighting-types that resist Head Smash.

The rampardos was from somogon.

Yeah, he copied the sets and I recommended a different one.
But you copied the Smogon Description...
Not the set, the description....
Also, Lapras is very rare in NU and when he is there, he is using a D-Dance set.
Yeah but it's moves are common among others proving that if one Pokemon can screw the team another team might carry a similar set. You need a counter. But you have a good point.
