    I'm not going to give you advertisements, but I'll give you advice. :P

    Psychic only hits Fighting- and Poison-types for super-effective, neither of which are threats to Chandelure. Go with Calm Mind instead for more boosting.

    Mienshao
    Regenerator
    ~ High Jump Kick
    ~ U-turn
    ~ Fake Out
    ~ Rock Slide

    Fake Out for flinching, HJK for heaps of damage and Rock Slide for coverage. U-turn out when you're hurt and switch back in and you'll be (partially) healed.

    Braviary wants Return > Crush Claw and Brave Bird > Sky Drop for more damage in both cases. I'd also suggest Shadow Claw > Hone Claws for coverage.

    Fighting + Ground share almost identical coverage. In Excadrill's case, Ground is superior since he gets STAB off it, so use Rock Slide > Brick Break for some nice coverage. Metal Claw has pretty bad coverage on Excadrill, so use Swords Dance for boosting.

    Dragon + Ground + Fire has perfect neutral coverage, so go with Earthquake > Rock Slide and Fire Punch > Stone Edge on Flygon.

    Samurott wants Return > Razor Shell for neutral coverage and Grass Knot > Aerial Ace.

    Substitute over Psychic. Its first three moves already get good coverage.

    A nitpick off zhanton's post, I'd run Fire Blast > Fire Punch on Flygon. Fire Blast usually hits for more damage in the off situation where you'd want to use a Fire Move; Rock Slide already hits Ice Types

    Also, you may want to reformat your thread as stated by the rules. js

    I am not sure about that. I've never seen anyone use Fire Blast > Fire Punch on Flygon since it is coming off of his higher Atk stat.

    Well competitively, you're supposed to run Adamant/jolly and max attack without investing anything on special attack, so it makes sense to use Fire Punch.
    Ingame, if you don't care about evs or natures, Fire Blast coming off 80 base special attack hurts more than Fire Punch coming off base 100 attack. Especially considering most of the things you'll want to use Fire on, are weaker on the special side.

    I'd get rid of Dream Eater. You already have a STAB grass attack for healing. Besides, DE is unreliable. Aqua Jet > Razor Shell for its middling speed and Ice Beam over SD. Maybe Megahorn > X-Scissor.

    I'd give Braviary Close Combat instead of Fly. Close Combat is super-effective against rock and ice types, which pose a huge threat the Braviary.
    And like Azeem40 said, I'd use Megahorn instead of X-Scissor since it is more powerful.

    Yes, Quiver Dance is what makes Lilligant a great Special Sweeper. Definitely have it over Dream Eater.

    Follow Zhanton's advice for Mienshao.

    Put the new team on the first post, not on the middle of the thread.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    Mienshao's best ability is Regenerator, which heals some of your HP when you switch out. If you take recoil damage from HJK, you can U-turn out, dealing some damage and switching out, and when you switch back in later, 1/3 of Mienshao's maximum HP will be healed.

    (That said, on the Mienshao set I posted on the previous page, you can run Drain Punch > Fake Out if you want a secondary STAB move)

    i guess so but still you can get better moves than u-turn...
