and I won my second battle. Here's the replay:

http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/cap-41459209

Is my team alright do you think? Just to make sure you know what it is, they are:

Gyarados

Ability - Moxie
Nature - Adamant
EVs - Attack and Speed 252, HP 4
Held Item - Expert Belt
Moves - Waterfall, Ice Fang, Earthquake and Dragon Dance

Donphan

Ability - Sturdy
Nature - Adamant
EVs - HP and Attack 252, Special Defense 4
Held Item - Leftovers
Moves - Rapid Spin, Earthquake, Poison Jab and Stealth Rocks

Toxicroak

Ability - Poison Touch
Nature - Adamant
EVs - HP and Attack 252, Special Defense 4
Held Item - Black Sludge
Moves - Fake Out, Drain Punch, Payback and Swords Dance

Graveler

Ability - Rock Head
Nature - Adamant
EVs - HP and Attack 252, Special Defense 4
Held Item - Life Orb
Moves - Defense Curl, Rollout, Fire Punch and Autotomize

Haxourus

Ability - Rivalry
Nature - Adamant
EVs - Attack 252, Speed 220, HP 36
Held Item - Haban Berry
Moves - Dragon Dance, Outrage, Rock Slide and Toxic

Venusaur

Ability - Chlorophyll
Nature - Hasty
EVs - HP and Speed 252, Attack 4
Held Item - Big Root
Moves - Sunny Day, Giga Drain, Leech Seed and Return

I want to also mention two things before I finish this post. Firstly, I want to be at least decent at competitive battling before Pokémon X and Pokémon Y come out so I can try some Wi-Fi battling. And secondly, I just used the EVs and Natures that Showdown suggested but I made the movesets mainly on my own and I chose items I thought would probably be best for each member.

I didn't know which tier Graveler was in because I couldn't find him in any of the lists and I wanted to use a Rock type Pokémon. Also, this was only my second battle ever in competitive that's why it seems like I am not very good.
