    Hey people! Overall the team has been somewhat successful, but I want to make it better!

    The team:
    Donphan@Rocky Helmet
    Ability: Sturdy
    Nature: Impish
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Atk
    -Rapid Spin
    -Knock Off

    Typical Rapid Spinner. Spins, then Roars the setter away.

    Ability: Trace
    Nature: Calm
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 SpA
    -Tri Attack
    -Conversion 2

    My special wall. Yada, yada, yada, Toxic Stall, yada, yada, Recover.

    Ability: Torrent
    Nature: Modest
    EVs: 252 SpA / 252 HP / 4 SpA
    -Water Pulse
    -Dragon Pulse
    -Aura Sphere
    -Dark Pulse

    Bulky Special guy. Really good coverage with all its moves.

    Metagross@Air Balloon
    Ability: Clear Body
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
    -Stealth Rocks
    -Iron Head
    -Ice Punch

    Stealth Rocker and lead. Ice Punch is for Grass types.

    Raikou@Choice Specs
    Ability: Pressure
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 SpA / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
    -Signal Beam
    -Volt Switch

    Typical. I think an experienced player would know this set.

    Ability: Natural Cure
    Nature: Bold
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
    -Heal Bell
    -Seismic Toss

    Four words: Toxic. Staller. Is. Indestructible.

    As a team you've made some great choices :)

    Individually this is what I would change:

    I'd give Donphan Thunder Fang for some coverage. Maybe take off Roar or Knock Off.

    Your Porygon 2 build needs more coverage as well. Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball and Ice Beam are all good choices here as they take out heavy hitters like Salamence and Aegislash.

    The only other thing I see is that Mega Blastoise is OU (of course, assuming you're building a UU team, as all the rest of them are UU).

    But other than that, your team is looking good! Love that Blissey!

    Replace toxic on Porygon with thunderwave to cover other statuses, that ways steels wont wall you entirely, at least you can paralyze them. Blissey has you covered for Toxic anyway. I do like the idea for conversion 2 as a surprising layer of stall but if people are setting up on you it may not be best. Coverage is the porygon family's specialty so I would look into running Ice beam at least for dragons and such.

    As it is I would say the team is pretty solid though it lacks speedier mons, if Raikou is down, the rest of your team is mostly stall and just plain slow. Porygon and Blissey kind of have the same role really so I would consider swapping one out for something else. Something not weak to ground ideally since you have a couple of those already.

    Note: Blissey hardly needs the HP EVs, toss those in Def for better survivability.

  4. The only thing I've got to add to this outside what other people have said is Aura Sphere on Raikou rather than either Signal Beam or Extrasensory to give it wider coverage quite a few Ground types are paired with types weak to Fighting. You need to be getting rid of threats as quick as possible.

    All of this is completely wrong, so feel free to disregard it.

    As for your team:

    - Consider Ice Shard as a possible option on Donphan. Roar is the only move I'd consider replacing for it as everything else is too good to drop here.

    - Thunder Wave is definitely a good choice for Porygon2 since Lucario recently arrived in UU and he'll quite happily Swords Dance or Nasty Plot all over your Pory2 and murder your team. I'd also stick a second attack over Conversion 2 just so that Porygon2 can fight back against Ghost and Steel-types, as the set is worthless against both.

    - According to Showdown the only BL Mega Stones are Alakazite and Heracronite, so MegaBlastoise is allowed. Not much to say about the set really, it works well for what it is.

    - Consider Bullet Punch on Metagross. Priority is teh gud.

    - With MegaBlastoise already packing something resembling a Specs set, Raikou could potentially use a Substitute/Calm Mind set instead. If other people are running sets similar to your Porygon2 and Blissey, SubCM Raikou can freely set up on them and go ham on the rest of their team.

    - If you're using this team on Showdown then Blissey can pack Wish + Protect to heal team-mates, and if you still want to keep Toxic then these two moves work even better since Protect adds a free turn of Toxic damage for you. Blissey has a fair bit of freedom moveset-wise so you can branch out into full support with Blissey if you find it works better.

    Donphan: Ice Shard. Sure.

    Porygon: Toxic -> T-Wave & Conversion 2 -> Ice Beam.

    Metagross: I considered Bullet Punch, but I am completely walled by grass unlass I have Ice Punch. Maybe Bullet Punch over Iron Head?

    Raikou: I like the set right now, but I will test tour set and see how it goes.

    Blissey: Alright, then maybe Wish + Protect over Seismic Toss and Heal Bell. I will see how this goes.
