This is my first online team, so it is really crappy and all help is welcome.

Oh, and don't say that it sucks, but say why it sucks...

1.) file -> export to text. it makes it look nice, and save you typing.
2.) is this UU? because usually people fighting UU don't like fighting peopl with BLs in their teams.

Well... you could say it is UU team, as I felt bad for adding "strong" pokemons like Lapras. If you can find fun (in my opinion) replacement for them, that would be good.

Oh, and if you say something like "It dies to Curselax", it won't help much as I don't know what kind of movesets curselaxes have or how to counter them or anything.

walrein/blastoise/lanturn and other bulky waters can replace lanturn.

i suppose hitmonlee could replace champ.

shiftry/belossom/vileplume/victreebell are all reasonable replacements for a sunnybeamer over eggy.

Sounds like you should read Smogon some more (not providing a link since you already found it).

Your EVs need major work and especially your Aggron:

Aggron (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Rock Head
EVs: 160 HP / 196 Atk / 96 Def / 56 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Double-Edge/Blizzard
- Focus Punch
- Iron Tail
- Rock Slide

CB please. Use Rock Head if you're running Double-Edge. But Focus Punch is better if you can predict (and using CBers with Focus Punch is a good way to get better at predicting). FP also renders EQ somewhat useless, so you can use Iron Tail over it for a strong STABed move. Blizzard is only there to OHKO Gligar, which is nice.

Put Rest over Bulk Up and Sleep Talk over RS or HP Ghouls on Machamp HP recovery and abusing its trait, what can I say?

Exeggutor (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Chlorophyll
EVs: 156 HP / 100 Spd / 252 SAtk
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Solar Beam
- Hidden Power [Fire/Ice]
- Explosion
- Sunny Day

170 Spd, enough to outspeed and finish off Timid/Jolly base 105s when sunny. Run 180 if you want to take on Crobat. Nobody runs max Speed base 130s anymore though, so I think that pushing it to 198 Spd is rather useless.
