First off welcome to the site Zhengar.

Your Sun team appears to be heavily reliant on Drought, which can be the difference between success and failure depending on who wins the Weather War, you or your opponent. Outside of the Sun, the team appears to be weak against every opposing Weather teams (Sand, Rain, and even Hail).3 Ice type weaknesses leaves 1/2 of the team open to priority Ice Shard. Also, the collective offensive movepool of the team struggles against opposing Fire types, most specifically Heatran.



Counters

Mamoswine/Donphan

MamobossThe Don
The Twin Tusk/Armor Pokemon's main staple in Ice Shard can nail 1/2 of the current team for SE damage despite all of the Chlorophyll abuse.

Heatran

Heatran
The current team struggles against Flash Fire Heatran greatly, as it's Typing paired with it's Ability allows it to completely wall the whole damn team. We're gonna fix that.



Suggestion

Naruto (Ninetales) @ Leftovers
Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 8 SAtk / 240 SDef / 4 Spd
Calm Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Sunny Day
- Fire Blast
- Solarbeam

This is the best Ninetails set IMO. The previous set was Switch-in bait for opposing Weather-setters with Solarbeam, which would have it's power halved while Ninetails is prey to a KO or Set-foddering as it charges up. This set cripples Physical Tyranitar with Will-o-Wisp, counter opposing Weather-setters switch-ins with Sunny Day. Able to beat Politoed one on one. Fire Blast over Flamethrower as to make up for it's lack of power.

Heatranny (Heatran) @ Air Balloon/Leftovers
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
Calm Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Earth Power
- Roar
- Lava Plume

Only suggestion here is to drop Toxic and replace it with Roar to prevent Set-Ups.

DinoPlant (Venusaur) @ Life Orb
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Growth
- Giga Drain
- Sludge Bomb
- Hidden Power [Ground]

The previous and suggested set are bothed walled by Heatran, so replace the Inaccurate Sleep Powder with HP Ground. Equip the Life Orb so you can abuse the extra power while restoring health with STAB Giga Drain.

Rotom-W < Jumpluff

Rotom-W @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Volt Switch
- Hydro Pump
- Pain Split
- Sunny Day

Jumpluff is dead weight. The Cottonweed Pokemon relies heavily on Sunny weather for it to work, and isn't a very potent Physical Sweeper (besides, you already have a Physical Sweeper). Thus, he should be replaced with a Pokemon that combats both Rain and Sand teams alike, Rotom-W. It's typing allows it to switch into several threats to the team such as Mamoswine. and gives the team an additional way to set up Sunny Weather which is guaranteed due to the surprise factor.

Sawsbuck < Leafeon

Sawsbuck (F) @ Choice Band
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Horn Leech
- Return
- Jump Kick
- Megahorn

Although Leafeon outspeeds Sawsbuck, the Season Pokemon is still capable of outspeeding a +Spd Venusaur while still running an Adamant Nature. It also has a form of recovery in it's Signature Move Horn Leech. The Doubled Speed from Chlorophyll and Doubled Attack from the Choice Band means that you have an absolute monster under the Sun.



Conclusion

. I would suggest a Hazard setter, but the team has no room for one of them. Hope I helped Zhengar, and once again, welcome to the site.

SR is usually a good enough Hazard for a team...
thx u very much
do u mind taking look at my sun team too
I wrote this in like 3:00 in the morning I forgot that Heatran carried the Rocks.
sry meant sand team
Sawsbuck runs a much better SD set than a CB set.
