After seeing my team was not working very well i decided to change up a few things

Miraidon @ Choice Specs
Ability: Hadron Engine
Tera Type: Electric
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 Def
Timid Nature
- Electro Drift
- Dazzling Gleam
- U-turn
- Draco Meteor

Miraidon is my main special bulk and with it's electric terrain and the choice specs it attack goes up 718 SpA stat making all it's damage absol-utely lethal as well as without electric terrain having a SpA stat of over 500+ and Dazzling gleam being a good dragon counter, electro drift for main damage against non-ground types

Clodsire @ Black Sludge
Ability: Water Absorb
Tera Type: Poison
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Def
Calm Nature
- Spikes
- Toxic Spikes
- Recover
- Earthquake

Clodsire is here as a tank and spike setter as not many people use spinners/defoggers recover to keep going and spikes and toxic spikes putting their switchins in immediate danger through 25% damage and poison and earthquake for pokemon like iron moth

Palafin @ Life Orb
Ability: Zero to Hero
Tera Type: Water
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Flip Turn
- Jet Punch
- Ice Punch
- Grass Knot

Here palafin is for his heavy damage priority in jet punch, Counter for both Dondozo and Clodsire with Grass knot and Ice Punch respectively, Flip turn for a good pivoting move made even more bulky and dangerous with the choice band, Grass knot should also deal big damage to Dondozo due to it doing weight based damage

Flutter Mane @ Booster Energy
Ability: Protosynthesis
Tera Type: Dark
EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
- Moonblast
- Calm Mind
- Mystical Fire
- Shadow Ball

Flutter mane is here as a check for tera types due to their diverse moveset as well as being able to raise their stats as well as being able to lower stats through Shadow Ball and Mystical fire allowing it to sweep

Iron Valiant @ Life Orb
Ability: Quark Drive
Tera Type: Fairy
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Hasty Nature
- Close Combat
- Knock Off
- Moonblast
- Shadow Sneak

Iron Valiant has a great base stat total as well as potential to be a dangerous mixed attacker and along with the great typing boosting both moonblast and close combat via stab, it can completely melt someone new pokemon, for example, Koraidon, Miraidon and Kingambit

Grimmsnarl @ Light Clay
Ability: Prankster
Tera Type: Dark
EVs: 252 SpD / 252 HP / 4 Def
Careful Nature
- Taunt
- Light Screen
- Reflect
- Thunder Wave

Grimmsnarl is here as my lead mon for thunder wave to slow down their lead, Taunt to stop their setup mons, Reflect and light screen to stop them getting an upper hand form the start

What natures on all your Pokemon? Also, on Grimmsnarl, why Tera Dark? Wouldn't another Tera be better?
Grimmsnarl has no damaging moves and that means putting a tera on him won't help it much
A defensive Tera would be better than just having no useful Tera
Tera Steel would be a nice change to Grimmsnarl, flipping weaknesses into resistances and immunities, namely Fairy, Steel, and Poison.
Ok, also i am having a bit of trouble with Palafin into grimmsnarl, dual screens, (Taunt or thunder wave if needed) and then switch to Palafin (Hero form) also choice band isn't doing much favours, should it run LO instead? I could run jet punch and turn one flip turn out as it could get some damage off too
