A timid Leafaeon? really? throw it in the trash! Leafeon doesn't need a nature that hinders its attack. Leafeon is just useless!
Empoleon has an ok moveset... metal claw with steel wing? both no way! give it flash cannon if you actually want it to have a steel move.
This is ingame not PO its harder for statisfactory natures

give leafeon (when its ready) a miracle seed or heat rock (sunny day) and teach it solarbeam instead of razor leaf if you want to. sunny day will help that. as soon as starraptor is strong enough teach it brave bird instead of aerial ace. be careful with that becausit deals a good amount of recoil damage. i don't really care what item you give it. preferrably one that powers up flying moves. for flareon give it an item that will up fire moves like a charcoal or a fire plate thing. switch ember with flamethrower and bite with fire fang. (burn or flinch) for empoleon teach it waterfall when you get it instead of metal claw or steel wing. until then I reccomend ice beam. for luxray switch spark with thunderbolt. your glaceon is good. give it a nevermelt ice. give empoleon a sea insence or a water plate.

Okay for your Leafeon I'll probably say get rid of Giga Drain for something like Return or Swords Dance because of it's pitiful special attack. For Flareon teach it either one of Flamethrower or Fire Fing and keep bite because of its extra type coverage. For your Empoleon exchange Metal Claw for either Flash Cannon for STAB or Grass Knot for extra type coverage. Also swap Blizzard for Ice Beam for more reliability. For your Staraptor I definitely recommended Brave Bird for Aerial Ace but if you feel that you maybe don't want two flying attacks then swap with U-Turn. Maybe also consider Quick Attack or Return for STAB. Your Glaceon has a pretty good moveset already. For your Luxray replace Thunder for either Thunderbolt for more power or Discharge for the extra chance of paralysis and also to help Luxray's mediocre speed.
