Double Team is banned in Competitive play
Chandelure should have Flash Fire instead; x0 Fire damage + 50% boost to fire type moves. Why Power Belt on Chandelure...? Give it Expert Belt or Life Orb. Expert Belt for no recoil, Life Orb for recoil damage but a higher attack boost on all moves.

There are better Dragon options than Druddigon; Haxorus for pure Dragon, Hydreigon for Dark/ Dragon.

Fly is a horrible move in competitive play. It's just giving your opponent a chance to switch out to something with a Flying resistance. If you want a flying move, Acrobatics + Air Gem is a good combo, and after Air Gem is used, Acrobatics get x2 power + STAB as well. Sub Heat Wave for U-Turn as well.

While Compoundeyes gives Thunder more accuracy, it's still 91%, so personally I would go for Thunderbolt, but a 91% accuracy isn't bad. Like it was said, Double Team is banned, so I would go for U-Turn/ Volt Switch.

No point of Hurricane on Whimsicott; no STAB, mediocre Sp. Atk, 70% accuracy w/o rain, and you're covering your Taunt liability with Energy Ball. Personally, I'd go for: Substitue, Toxic/ Taunt, Giga Drain/ Leech Seed, U-Turn. I'm making this into a U-Turn team...

Your team has no reliable method of recovery. You might want to consider a Heal Bell/ Wish combo Pokemon in replacement of one of your current team. You can consider Jellicent in place of Samurott (since it has Recover).
Since Whimsicott has prankster it can tuant someone before they tuant it
Yea that's a commonly used tactic, but Toxic is just another option, though I guess you'd put that on something bulkier than Whimsicott.
I like your ideas Marzipan.
The only NU polemon on this team is Samurott
^ This team would be UU.
So busy picking the movesets apart that I forgot that part; talk about missing the obvious...

Best answer

Samurott: Fine, just replace Megahorn with X-Scissor.

Chandelure: Fine, but don't waste your Evs on Attack.

Druddigon: Give it a Rocky Helmet to hold. I'd go with this moveset.

Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Aqua Tail
Fire Punch

Aqua Tail and Fire Punch are from Move Tutors, just in case you should know.

Archeops: Fly is good for getting around, and STAB. But read this. It's a citation from one of the comments.

Fly is a horrible move in competitive play. It's just giving your opponent a chance to switch out to something with a Flying resistance.

It's your choice if you want the move. Acrobatics is probably better, though.

The rest is OK.

Galvantula: Thunderbolt is better than Thunder. I don't agree with Double Team. Here's another citation.

Double Team is banned in Competitive play

If you're going to use your team in competitive play, change their moves. Thunder Wave
is OK, but Galvantula already has a great Speed stat.

Whimsicott: Sorry, it's another citation!

No point of Hurricane on Whimsicott; no STAB, mediocre Sp. Atk, 70% accuracy w/o rain, and you're covering your Taunt liability with Energy Ball. Personally, I'd go for: Substitue, Toxic/ Taunt, Giga Drain/ Leech Seed, U-Turn. I'm making this into a U-Turn team...

I think this comment is right.


It's the final citation, OK?

^ This team would be UU.

That's true. So the question should be titled "Time for my new UU Unova ultimate team!

Megahorn is better than X-Scissor on Samurott....
But X-Scissor has better accuracy
Megahorn has much higher power
