    Wide Guard ruins your strategy and the moves you picked besides Earthquake/Protect are poor.

    I'd say more, but there's really not much more to say beyond "Use something else."

    Would it be a little better if I put in my Venasaur, which knows:

    Protect
    Earthquake
    Toxic
    Leech Seed

    No, because Wide Guard still ruins your entire strategy and Toxic/Leech Seed are terrible in doubles.

    When I said "Use something else," I meant "Change everything and start over from scratch."

    I will take your advice, but how do I get past Wide Guard? Do I have every Pokemon learn Feint, or do I just not have a Protect-Earthquake team?

    Just don't use Protect/Earthquake, or at least don't revolve your entire team around it. Feint isn't going to help change the fact that the strategy itself is horribly outdated and was terrible even before Wide Guard came about, since Earthquake + Flying-type/Levitator (Garchomp + Zapdos being the most obvious pair) is already vastly superior, and even that has taken a massive hit due to Wide Guard and an increased prevalence in faster enemies such as Latios and Thundurus (both of which are also Earthquake-immune.)

    Scrap this entire team and use something completely different.
