I created this team in the chat with help from PrimalKyogre, but I just wanted to see if I could improve it. It seems to be already doing well, though...

Marshadow @ Assault Vest
Ability: Technician
Jolly Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
- Spectral Thief
- Blaze Kick
- Pursuit
- Force Palm

Spectral Thief is wonderful and even helped me sweep once or twice (or thrice? Idk). Blaze Kick is because I should probably have a Fire type move on my team. Pursuit is there as a Dark type move, but feel free to replace it as I don’t actually use it too often. Force Palm is for Fighting type STAB, and paralysis is wonderful.

Lugia @ Leftovers
Ability: Multiscale
Timid Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
- Defog
- Thunder Wave
- Recover
- Psychic

I originally just put it here as a Defogger, but it does surprisingly well (but should I be surprised?).

Zacian-Crowned @ Rusted Sword
Ability: Intrepid Sword
Jolly Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Behemoth Blade
- Sacred Sword
- Play Rough
- Wild Charge

Alright, I don't remember why Wild Charge is on it, but it doesn’t do bad at all.

Regieleki @ Assault Vest
Ability: Transistor
Hasty Nature
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Thunder Cage
- Volt Switch
- Ancient Power
- Extreme Speed

This is the one I’m the least confident about. Ancient Power is for coverage, I guess.

Kyogre-Primal @ Blue Orb
Ability: Primordial Sea
Modest Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
- Water Spout
- Origin Pulse
- Thunder Wave
- Ice Beam

Ironically, I stole this moveset from PrimalKyogre. It does a wonderful job.

Excadrill @ Air Balloon
Ability: Sand Rush
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Swords Dance
- X-Scissor
- Iron Head
- Earthquake

I don’t really feel confident about this either. It’s not too good but it’s not too bad. I wouldn’t mind replacing it.

Okay, this need quite a bit of work. Why don't you have sash, Shadow Sneak, and Close Combat/Drain Punch on Marshadow? Marshadow is quite frail and without priority and sash, can die to sash Calyrex-Shadow. Lugia seems okay, and I honestly never really used it, but why not Toxic? Wild Charge is for Lugia and Ho-oh. Seriously, Close Combat over Sacred Sword. Regieleki isn't really that good, especially without sash. It is really frail, but I'm not that big of a Regieleki expert so I don't know what else to say. No Speed EVS on Primal-Kyogre? I can see why you have HP EVs, but what good are they if you aren't fast enough to Water Spout. Thunder can't miss in rain, and has a chance to Paralyze, so I would use that over Thunder Wave. Why do you have Sand Rush on Excadrill if you don't have a Sandstorm setter? When I see Excadrills, they usually are Stealth Rock setters with sash. You really need some Hazards Setters to break sashes, cripple Flying types, and slow opponents. Also, you don't have an Ditto counter or counter for S-Calyrex. I recommend getting one.
Regieleki has paper-thin Special Defense, and an Assault Vest won't save it from much. You could potentially use Choice Specs (Extreme Speed with Choice Specs may be a bit iffy, but it's fine).

Ok, I’ll help you some more here lol
This needs some fixing. Since it’s not bulky, give it a sash. It very much appreciated these, trust me. It also wants Shadow Sneak and STABs.

EVs:252 Atk/252 Spe/4 Hp
•Shadow Sneak
•Spectral Thief
•Close Combat
•Blaze Kick
Looks good. You could run Roost>Recover and Heavy-Duty Boots>Leftovers, but it’s good either way
I like it, that’s what I run. Close Combat>Sacred Swords, though.
Assault vest is...horrible. Make it a special sweeper.

EVs:252 SpA/252 Spe/4 HP
•Thunder Cage/Thunderbolt
•Volt Switch
•Ancient Power
•Hyper Beam
Primal Kyogre
Haha, my Primal Kyogre but a bulky special sweeper. If you want it to be bulky, use Calm Mind>Water Spout. If you want a sweeper, use 252 Spe and Thunder>Thunder Wave.
Excadrill is used as a rapid spinner and a sand sweeper. Here, it cant really be either. You need a Calyrex-Shadow counter, so how about Yveltal?

Ability:Dark Aura
Nature:Timid/Hasty (is suckerpunch)
EVs:252 SpA/252 Spe/4 HP or 4 Atk (is suckerpunch)
•Dark Pulse
•Oblivion Wing
•Heat Wave
•Focus Blast/Sucker Punch
The best dynamaxer ever in my opinion. Max Darkness with Dark Aura is about 172 power. Max Airstream is better speed. Heat Wave helps against Zacian. Focus Blast beats Tyranitar, and Sucker Punch helps against Calyrex and Chansey/Blissey during dynamax

Hope this helps!!

Always use sucker punch, and it still ohkos with timid.
Marshadow is already a Calyrex-S counter. Yveltal also does the same plus it is a good dynamaxer. So why both?
@~BlazingStaraptor~ Marshadow is unreliable. Dynamaxed Calyrex-S can survive a Shadow Sneak then set-up Psyshic terrain and the team is swept. @☆SleepyDreepy☆ having a Hasty Yveltal isn't that bad, and you had Sucker Punch to hit some different things, say Trick Room Dusk Mane or Calyrex-Ice.
Yeah that was what I meant, why both Marshadow and Yveltal?
