To start off i throughout a Bronzong to set up stealths OR take out the opponets first fire type.

Bronzong (NA) @LifeOrb
Relaxed Nature
Bronzong Bronzong
Trait: Heatproof
EV's : 252 Def, 252 Sp. Def, 6 HP
Attacks:
Stealth Rock
Earthquake
Heavy Slam
Psychic

Reasoning; Lets start off with the life orb. Doesn't seem like the normal held item for Bronzong but my ideal isn't to place stones unless they're stupid and send out some random pokemon to start off or they like switching out alot. (Heal Bell instance) Usually the opposed sends out a fire type like typhlosioni cover with E-Quake. And even if they're faster and use a fire type attack my heatproof makes it not as powerful so its not a "One Hit Wonder" (For all those PKMN Stadium fans) and im not using levitate because the opposed usually doesnt use E-Quake because they assume i have levitate (Psychological Warfare) And Lastly Heavy Slam can Take out a small oponet like shaymin or venomoth\

Next Up is my Troll Umbreon. Her Goal is to take out any team threats.

Umbreon (F) @Leftovers
Bold Nature
Umbreon Umbreon
Trait: Syncronize
EV's: 252 Def, 252 Sp. Def, 6 Speed
Attacks:
Wish
Toxic
Protect
Pursuit

Reasoning: If I toxic the Foe they could switch out into a steel type or just to get in a better situation causing me to be at the Pursuit postion or possibly the whole wish, toxic, protect combo. I think the rest is self-explanatory

My next is a "Switch out wall" with lots of coverage. His Goal is to make the opponet's obvious Super Effective moves on my current pokemon hit him. Since my entire team is a wall he adds to the defense.

Swampert (M) @Rocky Helmet
Lax Nature
Swampert Swampert
Trait: Torrent
EV's : 252 Att. , 252 Def. , 6 HP
Attacks:
Hydro Pump (Or should i do muddy water)
Superpower
Stone Edge
Earthquake

Reasoning: Depending on the pokemon that comes out is when i can use this pokemon. But All the Attacks are for coverage simply.

Next up comes my actual wall. my second fav. pokemon EVER and in my opinion the best gen 1.

Slowbro (M) @Leftovers
Calm Nature
Slowbro Slowbro
Trait: Regenerator
EV's: 252 Def, 252 Sp. Def. 6 HP\
Attacks:
Trick Room
Psychic
Earthquake
Aqua Tail.

Reasoning: He is the ultimate troll. I usually use him when they have a weakness out. they are forced to switch when i use trick room. if they pull out electric, i e- quake them. and he can just switch out to another wall and regain health. he is deadly and fierce. and awesome.... haha

Next up comes another troll. I like this moveset and it provides alot of coverage

Zapdos (NA) @Leftovers
Timid Nature
Zapdos Zapdos
Trait: Pressure
EV's: 248 HP, 236 Def. , 26 Speed
Attacks.
Thunderbolt
Heat Wave
Hidden Power (Grass)
Roost

Reasoning: To Specially Sweep then Heal. Considered to be my Special Sweeper.

LASTLY is my physical sweeper if all else fails.

Machamp (M) @Expertbelt
Brave Nature (He's often used after Trick Room so speed doesn't matter)
Machamp Machamp
Trait: No Guard
EV's: 252 Attack, 252 HP, 6 HP
Attacks:
Thunderpunch (Water Type Coverage)
Stone Edge (Bug, Flying, and Ice Coverage)
DynamicPunch (Never hits uhhhh)
Bulk Up (if they wish to switch)

No reasoning needed to him. Please leave suggestions and ideas and rate it of course. THANKS! LT.

Your team is very slow. I know you have Trick Room, but this isn't a Trick Room team. The members of your team might be slow but this does not make them all too effective as members of Trick Room. And since you did not list this team as a Trick Room team, we'll toss out the Trick Room part and allow your team to take down UU teams, a usual mix of slow and bulky, and fast and powerful. You also have a problem with some specific Pokemon/types.

Grass types cause your team trouble. Tangrowth, Roserade, and Shaymin are huge threats in UU. Bronzong might be able to help, but it won't do much back and likely just be hit with Sleep Powder. Or when Shaymin figures out it has Heatproof, then launch some Earth Powers its way.

Rest Kingdra can cause this team some fair problems. And Steel types can easily use Umbreon to set up and sweep your entire team. And since your team doesn't have any real counters to these guys (mainly Cobalion and Bisharp being the main problems) we'll need to add some in.

Bronzong doesn't really add anything to your team. I would replace it. Fixing both your Speed problem as well as your Kingdra problem, we can add in Flygon, who is able to OHKO Kingdra with Outrage. It also helps out against these Steel type foes.

We'll replace Umbreon with something that is much less of a set up bait. Sableye should fit your purposes much better, able to Will-o-wisp Steel types. The thing is pretty much immune to Bisharp also.

I also didn't see Slowbro as being much help gto your team, although that might have to do with the awful moveset you gave it. But anyways, it compounds your Grass type weakness. And I want to keep Swampert, who I think provides more support to the team (or will). We'll add in the excellent Special Sweeper Chandelure, who is well known as one of the best counters of Grass types.

Now that Bronzong is gone, we'll provide Swmpert with more of a support role. We'll give it Roar and Stealth Rock, keeping Earthquake, then replace Hydro Pump with Waterfall.

I prefer Ice Punch on Machamp to hit Gligar, but this does leave Slowbro able to take you down. But because of a lack of any Ice attacks on your team, I would suggest going with Ice Punch. Both are equally usable though depending on what you want to counter.

I'll be changing your EVs and Natures, which you'll be able to see in the importable copy.
