Umbreon: Looks good. EVs go 252 SDef/ 248 Def/ 8 HP

Leafeon replace with a better Eeveelution:

Espeon @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Bounce (Dream World)
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd/ 4 Def
- Psychic
- Shadow Ball
- Hidden Power [Fighting]
- Protect

Crobat: Switch Aerial Ace for Brave Bird. EVs: 252 Atk/ 248 Spd/ 8 SDef

Starmie i would add Rapid Spin FOR SURE. Stealth Rock KILLS this team. if Espeon with Magic Bounce is KO'd you need a Plan B. make it Spin. also i would add Thunderbolt over Psychic. Drop Recover for Spin, Starmie dies if you breathe on it too hard. EVs:252 Spd/ 248 SAtk/ 8 HP

Magnezone: go with Thunderbolt, Hidden Power [Ice], Flash Cannon, and Volt Switch. EVs: 252 SAtk/ 248 SDef/ 8 HP. HPIce is for KOongoing Dragon types locked into Outrage like Dragonite, Garchomp, Salamence, Rayquaza, and Haxorus.

Camerupt: Switch Flamethrower for Overheat or Eruption on a Physical set with one Special attack. Eruption gets less powerful with lower HP at which point you Explode, or Overheat hits for 210 bp after STAB and drops your not super important SAtk stat 2 levels. otherwise Switch Earthquake to Earth Power and keep Flamethrower or go with Fore Blast. EVs: 252 Atk/ 248 HP/ 8 SAtk on the first set or 252 SAtk/ 248 HP on the second one.

hope this helps :)

Thank you so much! Had no idea Pokemon could be so confusing.
no prob. competitive battling is a totally different type of game than in-game. if you don't know your stuff like the back of your hand you get destroyed. that's what sites like Smogon and Serebii.net are for, to explain the inner workings of EVs, IVs, Natures, Breeding, Shiny Formula, etc.i recommend you check out smogon
I will. I just was looking all around the web since I beat the game a couple days ago I was wondering what to do. Also finding a way to tick off my friends who play the game too (evil laugh)
if you wanna annoy friends locally you only need 3 things:

Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
Trait: Iron Barbs
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Def/ 248 HP/ 8 SDef
IVs: 0 Spd
- Leech Seed
- Stealth Rock
- Rapid Spin
- Gyro Ball

lay Rocks with Seed. Rapid Spinsaway hazards for the 3rd pokemon on this list....

Sableye @ Rocky Helmet
Trait: Prankster (Dream World)
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 SDef/ 252 Def/ 4 HP
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp
- Shadow Sneak
- Recover

Prankster gives +1 Priority to any non attack move. Taunt, Wisp, and Recover will all move first unless a priority move by a faster pokemon or a higher priority move are used. Just Wisp and Priority Recover Spam while Burn and Rocky Helmet destroy Physical Attackers.

Riolu @ Focus Sash
Trait: Prankster (Dream World)
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)
EVs: 252 Spd/ 252 SAtk/ 4 HP
- Roar
- Copycat
- Vacuum Wave
- <Filler Move>
this is the cheapest thing ever.... Make sure no hazards are out. Make sure Riolu gets a free switch in, like on a KO of your pokemon. use Roar. Roar has -0.5 Priority. Riolu will get hit but survive with Sash. Roar Phazes the opponent. New poke comes out, and Stealth Rock hurts it. Now use Copycat. Copycat will copy Roar with +1 Priority. opponent Phazes into Stealth Rock again. repeat endlessly. you will just keep shuffling them until they faint or the opponent Rage Quits. their Last Poke can't be Phazes so that's where STAB Vacuum Wave comes in. Toxic is a good filler move to help wear down that last pokemon if it can't be KOd by V Wave.
