Here's my team that I usually use in the Battle Subway:

Hydreigon @Leftovers
Modest Nature
252 Sp.Atk, 252 Spd, 4 Def
Dark Pulse
Dragon Pulse
Thunder Wave
Flamethrower

Hydreigon goes in first. If the opposing Pokemon is Fighting, I'll switch it out for Dusclops.


Metagross @Iron Plate
Adamant Nature
Atk: 252, Def: 252, HP: 4
Earthquake
Meteor Mash
Brick Break
Zen Headbutt

Metagross has a great attack and it can also wall Physical attacks easily.


Dusclopse @Eviolite
Impish Nature
Def: 252, Sp.Def: 252, Atk: 4
Will-O-Wisp
Pain Split
Payback
Shadow Punch

Dusclopse can take hits quite amazingly, and it has good support by Pain Split when it comes to healing.

I like your team members, they resist each other's weaknesses very well. Theres a few changes I would make though, movesets suggested below -


Hydreigon @ Life Orb/Choice Specs
Timid Nature
252 Sp.Atk, 252 Spd, 4 Def
Dark Pulse
Dragon Pulse
Draco Meteor
Flamethrower

Life Orb or Specs for power, I wouldn't use lefties on Hydreigon personally.
Timid because your team overall is quite slow (I realise you made up for this somewhat with TW, but without it, Hydreigon needs to be Timid to be effective).
Draco Meteor gives it power and you can swap out easily as your backups are both huge tanks.


Metagross @ Leftovers/ Choice Band
Adamant Nature
Atk: 252, HP: 252, Def: 4
Earthquake
Meteor Mash
Brick Break
Bullet Punch

Leftovers for healing or Choice Band for improved revenge killing
HP EVs over Defence, just because it helps Def and SpD.
Bullet Punch gives your team a nice STAB priority move which can revenge kill a lot of pokemon.


Dusclopse @Eviolite
Calm Nature
Def: 252, Sp.Def: 252, HP/SpA: 4
Will-O-Wisp
Pain Split
Payback/Taunt/Ice Beam
Night Shade

Calm nature raises SpD, you already have Will-o-wisp for defending against physical hits.
Night Shade deals more damage to most opponents than a STAB Shadow Punch
Taunt can be handy against Rest users who get rid of burn, or pokemon trying to set up, Ice Beam for coverage.

Changes in bold. Good luck with your team! If you end up changing any pokemon, I'd suggest running something that can set up (with Dragon Dance, Swords Dance etc) as of right now, none of your pokemon can do so.

Actually a pretty solid team :D
Psychic Dark and Ghost complement each other very well ^^
other than what's already said, i have nothing.

one thing though is that toxic is certainly another status you can put with WoW on dusclops since you're going to be tanking hits like a boss, might as well make them suffer more.
plus you never know what random fire types or water veil pokemon will come in, and it's always nice to have another option.
