I don't play Gen 7 OU, but even I can tell this team needs improvements. Is there any reason why you have those certain Pokemon? Most of them aren't viable in Gen 7 OU. Also, your movesets and EV spreads are rather... weird.

I recommend you read the Viability Rankings (which is the top link) and the analysis for Pokemon  (the second link) who are viable in Gen 7 OU and what movesets Pokemon use. Hope these resources help, especially since teambuilding is new to you. :)
You are using special attacks on physical pokemon, and vice versa. For example, Gengar is terrible at using moves like ice punch
Are you sure this is a gen 7 ou team and not a gen 3 ou team?
Ok. Blissey you might want heal bell instead of fire blast, which is pretty innaccurate - plus consider its role as a wall - whittling down their health while staying healthy. Gengar would benefit from a complete makeover - specs/assault vest + stab shadow ball, tbolt, sludge bomb and psychic. Snorlax would be better with a chesto berry and body press instead of HP Steel. Replace Ice Punch with a special move on jirachi. Metagross seems OK - with a little room for improvement. I would run Scald instead of hydro pump - you don't want to miss - and just not focus punch. It's terrible.
thanks guys! will certainly make the ammendments! meanwhile, can someone suggest to me what pokemons i should replace for my team?
You should just make a new team after reading about Gen 7 OU. This team is really out of touch with the metagame -- making it competitively viable would involve totally defacing it.
Also surely Z is onto something? That's almost verbatim the Gen 3 OU Snorlax set. Were you on the wrong Smogon tab or something?
ok. i will create a new team.
