Since i had time I made another draft team

Far Future (Miraidon) @ Choice specs
Ev's : 252 SpA, 4 Def, 252 Speed
Tera Type : Electric
Ability : Hadron Engine
Timid Nature
- U-Turn
- Electro Drift
- Dazzling Gleam
- Draco Meteor

Miraidon is basically my main wallbreaker and can also be used to pivot to carry over momentum also one electro drift will OHKO a dondozo and can also cripple any special attackers that it can hit it also good for countering many common mons Chi-yu, Ting-lu, Chien-Pao, Wo-Chien and Koraidon as most of them excluding Chi-yu with Dazzling Gleam, Chien-Pao Ice shard might be a problem though

(Magicat) Meowscarada @ Choice Band / Life Orb
Ev's : 252 Atk, 4 SpD, 252 Speed
Tera Type : Grass
Ability : Protean
Jolly Nature
- Flower trick
- Knock off
- Thunder Punch
- Play Rough

Meowscarada is actually better than they look as they resist electric Grass tera to boost flower trick's power, thunder punch to counter flying types, knock off for ghost types, you can also use life orb if you don't want to be locked into one move which can be optimal and this means flower trick is boosted by ; Tera, STAB, Life orb and crit all at once

(Rolling Stone) Iron Treads @ Booster Energy
Ev's : 252 Atk, 4 Def, 252 Speed
Tera Type : Flying
Ability : Quark Drive
Jolly Nature
- Rapid Spin
- Earthquake
- Iron Head
- Ice Spinner

Iron treads is mainly here for Rapid Spinning hazards away and with quark drive speed he can outspeed even MIRAIDON and retaliate with earthquake, Ice spinner for opposing rock, ice and grass types, tera flying to negate my ground weakness and iron head for fairy types and possibly fairy tera Miraidon as - just like unlucky crits - happens more than you think.

Iron Moth @ Booster Energy
Ev's : 252 SpA, 4 Def, 252 Speed
Ability : Quark Drive
Tera Type : Flying
Modest Nature
- Fiery Dance
- Agility
- Psychic
- Sludge Wave

Iron Moth is great here due to his devastating attack power and huge speed stat especially with access to agility making further sure that even when paralyzed he can still move faster than his opponents and if he gets off an agility when non-paralysed he goes to 638 speed Fiery dance has a 50% chance to raise your special attack making mons like clodsire an easy kill and the tera type flying to remove his 4x weakness to ground.

Palafin @ Punching Glove
Ev's : 252 Atk, 4 SpD, 252 Speed
Tera Type : Ice
Ability : Zero to Hero
Adamant Nature
- Close Combat
- Jet Punch
- Ice Punch
- Flip turn

Palafin is here as a counter to clodsire as the fact that he can slam into clodsire and one shot it as well as the fact that the punching glove making it even stronger is anything to go by, that means with bulk up he's even more destructive

Gholdengo @ Air balloon
Ev's : 252 SpA, 252 Speed, 4 Def
Tera Type : Fairy
Ability : Good As Gold
Modest Nature
- Make It Rain
- Nasty Plot
- Shadow Ball
- Dazzling Gleam

Gholdengo is great for absorbing status move with good as gold meaning they do nothing to him and his stab make it rain while lowering his SpA, does insanely high damage to anything it doesn't get resisted by, good for pokemon that are ice, rock and fairy types

this team is a draft so please give me suggestions for it

Gentle can be replaced by Careful, as Careful doesn't lower your Defense.
You might be right but after i tried this i changed both clodisre and dondozo Clodsire
Clodsire --> Iron Moth
Dondozo --> Palafin

let me change it quick
ice spinner isn't super effective against rock types
As you have just pointed out, I am lacking brain cells and anyway i should be fine on rock types (Palafin, gholdengo, treads and meowscarada)
Clodsire tends to run Unaware which negates Iron Moth’s Fiery Dance boost.

This team in particular seems to suffer from New Toy Syndrome, where all the new "toys" of SV are used more even if they don't turn out to be competitively viable for much longer. The main examples of this are Palafin, Mewoscarada, and Iron Moth. Your other teams were mainly Hyper Offense, so I'll try a more Balance team here.

Miraidon: All good, but Tera Fairy is usually better to fake out a Korai or opposing Mirai, and maybe Overheat over Dazzling Gleam to beat Clodsire and Treads.
Meowscarada: I know I've said this a lot, but Koraidon completely outclasses Meowscarada. However, this Knock Off set reminds me of Great Tusk, so I'd put that here. A Scarf set for Tusk would fit well, and the build in the Poképaste I'll provide outspeeds all unboosted mons as well as a Def Protosynthesis boost.
Iron Treads: Booster Energy is wasted on Treads, as it serves as a terrible sweeper among all these Koraidons running around. Let's add a Koraidon! You lack a good wincon since I'm replacing Iron Moth, so a Flame Charge + Swords Dance set will do nicely.
Iron Moth: Again, New Toy Syndrome. I explained Iron Moth's relevancy on another one if your teams.. To fit Balance a bit better, how about an Unaware Hazard Setting Clodsire? Tera Grass to more reliably beat Tusk and Treads.
Palafin: I really wish this thing wasn't only usable on Rain teams. Too bad Koraidon runs around too much, spreading Sun. You lack some SpA attackers, so a Calm Mind Flutter Mane is a good addition, especially with Koraidon giving it a Spe boost.
Gholdengo: I personally am not a fan of it, but it fits your team extremely well, so I'll leave it as is.


Hope I helped!
