You need Natures and EVs. Also Thrash is a bad move and Solar Beam and Flamethrower are awful on Darm because of it's super low Special Attack.
I guess this team can easily thrash a beginner player, but you need a nature. Plus, Solar Beam, Thrash, and Superpower give it no STAB, and Flamethrower is good only when you have Zen Mode(because of the Sp. Atk. boost)
but superpower is good coverage
