-Drain Punch

-Iron Head
-Night Slash
-Hone Claws

-Wild Charge
-Rock Slide
-Flamethrower (my team BADLY need fire coverage)

-Ice Beam
-Mirror Move
-Water Pulse (my team also really needs water coverage)

Now where things get strange

-Energy Ball (more Grass coverage also needed)
-Air Slash

-Bug Buzz
-Giga Drain
-Sludge Bomb

Now the problem lies in a few things
-Grass, Water, and Fire coverage. They will have to be covered in non-stab moves across a few Pokemon
-I have really contemplated in switching
Siglyph with Archeops
Accelgor with Chandelure or Escalvier
However, the reason I don't is because Archeops and Chendelure have very late evolutions. I know my other Pokemon do to, but at least Accelgor/Escalvier and Siglyph are more readily useful before a high level. And as much as I love Chandelure, everyone and their mother uses it.

Also, my team seems to need ground coverage badly too. And I know of the glaring fire weakness.

Here's the possible Escalvier

-Iron Head
-Ariel Ace
-False Swipe (for catching pokes)

Tips and comments are highly appreciated, and if anyone is kind enough to trade me over these pokemon on release date, it would be very appreciated.

Nature: Jolly
Ability: Regenerator
-Fake Out
-Hi Jump Kick
-Rock Slide
This Pokemon is fun to play with. Fake Out for that early flinch. U-Turn for flinch and run + regeneration. Hi Jump Kick for STAB. Rock Slide for coverage.

Nature: Adamant/Jolly
Ability: Defiant/Inner Focus
-Night Slash
-Iron Head
-Psycho Cut
-Swords Dance
Night Slash and Iron Head for STAB. Psycho Cut for coverage. Swords Dance for boost.

Nature: Mild
Ability: Levitate
-Dragon Claw/Dragon Tail
-Grass Knot
Credit to Aurawarrior8 for the set. Electric-Grass-Fire coverage is great with a Dragon move.

Nature: Modest/Timid
Ability: Ice Body
-Ice Beam
-Flash Cannon
-Water Pulse/Hidden Power (Ground)
Ice Beam for STAB. Flash Cannon for coverage. Water Pulse since you said your team needs Water coverage. You can go with Hidden Power (Ground) for the coverage for itself. Return for more coverage. Autotomize to raise your Speed.

Id say Calm Mind on Siglyph since Eelektross has the Grass coverage.

I aint a pro on Accelgor but I can help with your Escavelier.
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Swarm/Overcoat
-Iron Head
-Swords Dance
X-Scissor and Iron Head for STAB. Return for coverage. Swords Dance for boost. (To People who say "Go Mega Horn!", X-Scissor is better if you are boosting)

Thanks for the analysis, but I find a completely special eelektross a bit iffy.

More feedback is highly appreciated.

I'm honestly disappointed at the lack of feedback.

sigilyph with fly wouldnt do much in battle, your best bet is to get Archeops as u stated and use him for his massive attack and fly would actually K.O alot.
