Okay, hello there! Nice to see an NU team, what with overpowered Pokes in OU!

Just at a glance, I can see that many of your Pokemon are weak to Rock. Fortunately, there aren't any Priority Rock moves. I think the best way to solve this problem is to replace Tropius with a Bisharp. Bisharp's fantastic ability to set up on many Pokemon of NU and demolish them afterwards is just incredible. The set is below:
Bisharp (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Defiant
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Sucker Punch
- Swords Dance
- Iron Head
- Stone Edge

Standard SD+Sucker Punch set with coverage against the Rock types plaguing your team and Fire types.

Other changes: I would run HP Water over Signal Beam on Raichu, coverage against Ground types and the several Fire types in NU. Really? Sludge Bomb on Torkoal? Rapid Spin is the way to go, especially with 3 Pokes still weak to Rock. Also, since Accelgor has crazy high Speed for NU, I suggest changing those 252 SAtk EVs to HP to ensure at least 2 if not 3 layers of Spikes.

Hope these suggestions made your team at least a little bit better.

Rocking it with Defiant xD

Lots of grass types in NU so thats why I went with signal beam.
Overall good answer never tried this team on a member of the db yet but I'll give bisharp a spin but tropius' potential for epic stall..

I would vote this up but I'm in the negative points :P
If you'd like, you could use HP Ice, giving you complete coverage and still hitting those Grass types. What potential does Tropius have for epic stall? As far as I can see, that large 4X weakness to Ice could take you down.
Plus, Harvest is not 100% except in Sun.
ok thanks ;) (don't really know what to say :/)
