Blastoise-

I can't explain this enough, Blastoise does not sweep. Blastoise Walls. So you need a different set and EVs. Here is a Walling set:

Blastoise@ Damp Rock
Ability:Rain Dish
Calm Nature(-Attack +Sp. Defense)
EVs: 252 HP, 168 Sp Defense, 88 Sp. Defense

  • Rain Dance
  • Scald
  • Toxic
  • Protect

Here is what I recommend. Rain Dance supports your whole Team, while activating Its Ability Rain Dish. Damp Rock makes it last longer. Scald is STAB, while having 30% chance to Burn is nice. Toxic inflicts Poison while Protect make you Stall. Aqua Ring is an option as well to replace Protect.

Feraligatr-

Standard Sheer Force Fearligatr. The only thing I can say is replace Crunch with Dragon Dance. Crunch has poor offensive Coverage, and Dragon Dance boosts its Attack and poor Speed.

Swampert-

Okay, I have a suggestion to make your team a little better. Make Swampert your lead, because its probably the bulkiest of the Starters. Here is what I recommend.:

Swampert@ Leftovers
Ability:Torrent
Impish Nature(-Sp. Attack +Defense)
EVs:216 HP, 240 Defense, 56 Sp. Defense

  • Stealth Rock
  • Roar
  • Earthquake
  • Ice Punch/Waterfall

Lead Swampert at its best. SR are Roar are obvious. Earthquake is STAB while Ice Punch covers Grass Types. Waterfall is STAB boosted from Rain Dance.

Empoleon-

Since its your only Special Sweeper available, I won't recommend anything here.

Samurott-

Same here, can't recommend anything for a Mixed Samurott except to switch the Focus Sash with Life Orb and switch the Nature to Naive or Hasty that raises its Speed.
