Whoever voted this down, this question is fine. It has all the necessary details (with pokemon function instead of EVs).
It really is a very creative team, moves, and the function of every move i don't see why it could be bad
THIS IS JUST PERFECT ONE OF THE BESTS TEAMS TEAM I EVER SAWED KEEP IT UP !!!!!!!

Metagross :
Nice moveset , pick Adamant instead of Careful just to overpower its attacks .
Max EVs in attack and sp.def / def. ( Some ground moves are nasty and physical )

Flygon :
Pick Jolly . It would help in cases when you really have to U-Turn .
Moveset is fine , max EVs in speed and Attack .

Umbreon :
A lil' change . Your nature would be pointless if you arent going to attack . Replace torment since many people would use choice items only if they are going to trick it . Replace it with maybe Assurance since it is going last , might as well make a little use of it . After you are done with toxic and mean look , you could assure the opponent is dead :D .

Skuckle :
Perfect one . You handicap the opponent and stay in . Try this , use umbreon's toxic then switch to chuckle since it can take hits wayy better . OR you might consider changing stealth rocks to either an attacking move ( making use of power split ) or Toxic itself .

Ninetales :
I couldn't do anything to make it better . An exquisite moveset . I'm just not sure that if you switch out to umbreon the opponent might realise that mean look's coming up and switch , but well most people wouldn't realise that so excellent .

Ampharos :
ThunderBolt instead of thunder , since it is way more reliable and that is important . Reflect , since most threats for ampharos are ground types who mainly are physical so you would just take normal damage . Hidden power-ice . No , comeon , you cover flying with thunderbolt , for ground etc. i suggest hidden power WATER since you do not have any water pokemon and water is one important type but well ice wouldn't hurt as well so its your pick .
HOW does iron tail cover fighting ?? For fighting coverage you could get Metafross ZEN headbutt instead of Ice punch , that would also provide a STAB . And get ampharos another move such as cotton spore or guard , that would really help . I suggest cotton spore .
