'Like I Really Enjoy being OHKO'ed This Much. ):

Hey, there. I need a bit a tweaking for my team.
I basically keep getting hit with OHKO's or 2HKO's.
There's no fun, no contest.
I'm getting really tired of it.

Just tell me what the heck I'm doing wrong here. :)

I know nothing about NU, but I do know that all of you're EVs are messed up. You have more than 510 on some, while 510 is the max. And 4 EVs equals 1 stat point, so the max you want to put in one stat is 252, and you always want EVs divisible by 4. Hope this helped.

Well the team you've come up with is only viable on NU. I don't see it doing any good in any other tier. Honestly if you don't like losing this much then you should make a new team, purely for the fact that you can't challenge your correct tier all the time

I play NU quite a bit, so I'll try and help you out:

First off all of your EVs are messed up. You can only have 510 Evs on a poke maximum, and in the case of Swalot and Solrock you exceed that limit. 4 EVs in a stat equals 1 point to that stat, bar certain numbers (216 being a nice example). Therefore all your EVs should try and be divisible by 4. There's a whole host of guides on EVing out there if you need some sort of reference.

Your team is actually very weak to the top threats in NU one way or another. Specs Sharpedo WILL have no trouble whatsoever spamming Surf against your whole team with no reliable resist, or any form of special defence/Poliwrath at all. You're also Entei weak, Eruption wipes out 5/6 of your team. Mixentei sporting HP Grass/Fire Blast/Cm 6-0s you. You're also quite Relincath weak, he's bulky enough to take the non-stab weak Brick Break and Earthquake from your team and go all out with CB Waterfall and Head Smash.

I would really suggest making a new team from scratch, as this one lacks the firepower and the bulk to handle the threats of NU and retaliate back.

Idea for a part of a team:

Salamence: Wide Lense or something like that.
Outrage
Dragon Dance
Earthquake
Aerial Ace

Luxray: Magnet
Swagger
Discharge
Crunch
Thunderbolt
