Before I list my team, I just wanna let you guys know two things:
1) I'm new to the Competitive Battling scene, so please, go easy on me! Lol
2) This team is for Double Battling because I only partake in Doubles because it's easier for me.

Okay, here is my first team I ever actually built. This team is in a random order, but I'll try to put them in order of how I use them. Also, the IVs of each of my Pokemon are all 31(the team was made and tested on Pokemon Showdown)

Pokemon:
Spincycle the Rotom(Wash)
Nature:
Has a Calm Nature
Ability:
Levitate
Item:
Sitrus Berry
Moves:
Protect(let's me have a free turn to see what my opponent's game is)
Will-O-Wisp(a Burn is nice sometimes)
Volt Switch(I will switch into my U-Turn Scizor)
Hydro Pump(it doesn't exactly take out Mega Charizard Y, but one Hydro Pump and a Volt Switch will work)
EVs:
252 in HP
136 in Sp. Atk
120 in Sp. Def

Pokemon:
Mossthorn the Ferrothorn
Nature:
Has a Brave Nature
Ability:
Iron Barbs
Item:
Rocky Helmet
Moves:
Protect(same scouting technique as Spincycle's)
Thunder Wave(better than Will-O-Wisp, but Mossthorn is slower than Spincycle)
Leech Seed(good for HP restoration, has it's pros and cons)
Power Whip(it's a strong attack)
EVs:
252 in HP
172 in Atk
84 in Def

Pokemon:
Senketsu the Scizor
Nature:
Has an Adamant Nature
Ability:
Technician
Item:
Choice Scarf
Moves:
Pursuit(predicting moves and switches in Doubles are easy)
Bullet Punch(great move to finish off a Pokemon, bad in Trick Room)
U-Turn(creates VolTurn synergy with Spincycle)
Superpower(I am unsure how I feel about this move, I don't use it very much)
EVs:
248 in HP
252 in Atk
8 in Sp. Def

Pokemon:
Percival the Bisharp
Nature:
Has an Adamant Nature
Ability:
Defiant
Item:
Life Orb
Moves:
Protect(for scouting as well)
Knock Off(good for getting rid of Leftovers and other Items)
Sucker Punch(great move overall)
Iron Head(provides coverage, although there aren't many Pokemon I see that are weak to Steel-types in the Metagame)
EVs:
4 in HP
252 in Atk
252 in Spe

Pokemon:
Drake the Salamence
Nature:
Has a Modest Nature
Ability:
Intimidate
Item:
Choice Scarf
Moves:
Earthquake(good coverage)
Stone Edge(more coverage)
Fire Blast(some more coverage)
Draco Meteor(more coverage over other Salamence, Hydreigon, or Goodra in some cases)
EVs:
4 in HP
252 in Sp. Atk
252 in Spe

Pokemon:
Rose the Diancie
Nature:
Has a Naive Nature
Ability:
Clear Body -> Magic Bounce
Item:
Diancite
Moves:
Protect(works great for Rose)
Earth Power(good coverage over her weakness and for Pokemon such as Terrakion or Jirachi)
Moonblast(good move overall)
Diamond Storm(good for taking out Thundurus, Landorus, etc)
EVs:
208 in HP
48 in Sp. Atk
252 in Spe

Basically, my strategy is to start off with Spincycle and Mossthorn. I let them both start with a Protect to see what moves my opponent uses, then if it's safe, I stay in, if not, I Volt Switch into another Pokemon, possibly Senketsu for a U-Turn. Percival and Drake are Pokemon I can switch in at any time to help me gain some coverage while Rose's Mega Evolution is a last resort. I tried Battling with this team and my wins are probably just luck. Here are some Pokemon Showdown replays:

(this Battle had me using Auricle the Audino instead of Senketsu the Scizor, just ignore it. Lol)

If there's something I can do to improve, please let me know as friendly suggestions are always welcome. Thanks a bunch! ~
