Is this Reuniclus good? I just gave it a few random moves and a life orb, and now I somewhat regret it. (Please tell me how to fix it.)

Reuniclus (M) @Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard
- Drain Punch
- Shadow Ball
- Dizzy Punch
- Flash Cannon

What do you think I can do to make it better? Thanks.

What are you trying to do with this Reuniclus?

Your Reuniclus is not bad, but it does not have enough Defense to hold a Life Orb for long. Also, Dizzy Punch and Flash Cannon have no purpose. Finally, it is very slow, so it would be a 2HKO or 3HKO when hit by a super effective move. Here is a good moveset for it:

Reuniclus (Any Gender) @Leftovers
Ability: Magic Guard
Nature: Modest
-Psychic - good STAB
-Trick - Helps with lower speed
-Shadow Ball - Good for type resistance
-Light Screen/Calm Mind - Good defense and attack

You do realize that magic guard prevents life orb recoil, right? And how does trick raise speed?
I think he means Trick Room.
Also light screen is bad in most singles formats because defog is so common.
