Ok buddy, I'm gonna give you some feed back. this is constructive criticism. just trying to help.

Magmortar: items can make or break a Pokemon. I see you use Charcoal a lot. Outside of a monoattacker its useless. Life Orb is much better. charcoal boosts Fire type attacks by 20%. Life Orb boosts ALL attacks by 30% at the cost of 10% of the holders max HP.

Magmortar @ Life Orb
Trait: Flame Body
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 180 Spd/ 66 HP
- Overheat
- Thunderbolt
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball

this set uses an all out special attacker method. LO pumps all attacks a ton, and Maggy already has high SAtk. I took out Iron Tail cuz its a Physical Move and all your EVs are going to SAtk.

Garchomp: decent, but could improve.

Garchomp @ Yache Berry
Trait: Rough Skin (Dream World)
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 180 Spd/ 66 HP
- Draco Meteor
- Fire Blast
- Thunderbolt
- Focus Blast

this set uses Yache Berry because Focus Sash only protects at full HP and the only thing that's gonna OHKO Garchomp in most cases is a x4 effective Ice Attack anyway . this makes it so you may survive an Ice Shard after Stealth Rock. Draco Meteor is STAB, Fire Blast is coverage on Ice types, and Steel types who resist your Meteor. Thunderbolt is just good coverage in general, and Focus Blast is good for Dark and Normal types, and is particularly effective against ole Tyrannitar.

Lucario @ Focus Sash
Trait: Inner Focus
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
- Close Combat
- ExtremeSpeed
- Earthquake
- Stone Edge/Poison Jab

this set uses an Adamant Nature because of ExtemeSpeeds priority heating as much focus on Spd growth. Close Combat and Earthquake or STAB and coverage, respectively, and Stone Edge is if you hate Flying and Ice types, although Lucarios Steel typing helps out defensively. Poison Jab is for Grass types that lack Poison as a second typing who might wall you. ExtremeSpeed is obvious neutral 80 bp with +2 Priority. use Focus Sash due to Fire Blasts ubiquity and its OHKO potential threat.

Electivire: again decent, but could be helped a bit.

Electivire @ Air Balloon
Trait: Motor Drive
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 160 Spd/ 88 HP
- Wild Charge
- Cross Chop
- Ice Punch
- Thunder Wave/Toxic

With Air Balloon in hand Electivire has zero weaknesses. Motor Drive gives a way to sponge Electric attacks, and pumps Jolly Natures blessings to a ridiculous degree. Cross Chop is chosen over Hammer arm due to no Spd drop, which is what Motor Drive and Jolly Nature are all about. Tinder Wave cripples sleepers or Toxic cripples non Resting walls.

Alakazam: needs some help

Alakazam @ Choice Specs/Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard (Dream World)
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
- Psychic/Psyshock
- Focus Blast
- Thunderbolt
- Grass Knot

this set abuses Magic Guard and Life Orb for a 30% boost to Alakazams already amazing Special Attacks with NO RECOIL. Psyshock should be used over Psychic if Blissey is giving you problems. Grass Knot helps destroy Bulky Waters.

Feraligatr: needs a few changes

Feraligatr @ Choice Band
Trait: Torrent
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 160 HP/ 88 Spd
- Waterfall
- Superpower
- Earthquake
- Crunch/Aqua Jet

if your gonna dump in Spd EVs, why give a nature that hinders Spd? Choice Band makes Gatr hit hard, boosting his Atk stat by x1.5 with zero setup. even at 40 bp, Aqua Jet becomes a 40 bp x 1.5 (STAB) = 60 bp + 447 Atk Stat calculation. the only downside is being locked into that move.

hopefully this helps. you just need to start looking at each Pokemon strengths and weaknesses and use it in a way that fits its aptitude. if a poke has a base stat of 130 Atk and 78 SAtk, its probably a better idea to go for a physical set, unless you're using Nidoking who has jack for a physical haha. you'll get better. just takes practice and good advice

Just wondering: What is it with you and the Yache' Berry? Every dragon you suggest has a Yache Berry. Also, Feraligatr might be better suited running a Dragon Dance set.
I only run Yache Berry on Dragons that have x4 weakness to Ice since almost any decently powered Ice attack OHKOs Dragonite, Salamence, Garchomp, Flygon, Altaria, Rayquaza, etc. i would have Kingdra run more likely a Choice Specs set or a Life Orb. basically i find that Focus Sash is less useful because most Dragons have a decent amount of bulk, but a x4 weakness pretty much OHKOs anything regardless of that. So with hazards Focus Sash is only useful 60% of the time. Yache Berry is more likely to prevent a OHKO if they have around 70-80% HP. and BoltBeam coverage is ubiquitous so i just find it more efficient that Focus Sash. if you look, my Haxorus set runs Life Orb + Swords Dance set. why? only x2 weakness to Ice. Dragonite i give the Yache. make sense? same reason a lot of Tyrannitar hold Chople Berry
Also i chose to forgo the Dragon Dance Gatr since this team has less support and more offensive presence. without some means of support i just don't see Feraligatr getting a lot of time to set up. so i chose to rely on its bulk and Band it for quicker utility.
