Team Rating?

Just seeing how others think of my team. Tell me what you think. Any move changes are appreciated as well as alternatives too. Also, number 6 is temporary most likely. If you have any suggestions for a number 6 and possible moveset, let me know.

1. Electrode (Electric)
-Thunderbolt
-Rollout
-Mirror Coat
-Thunder
*Electrode is my speed+Sp, Atk user of the team.

2. Feraligatr (Water)
-Aerial Ace
-Surf
-Waterfall
-Ice Beam
*Mainly an attacking one with a fairly well speed but not excessively high.

3. Ho-oh (Fire-Flying)
-Fly
-Flamethrower
-Shadow Ball
-Psychic
*As a legendary and the only one i use, fairly above average stats in all areas with very nice attack, sp. atk, and sp. def.

4. Steelix (Steel-Ground)
-Rock Slide
-Earthquake
-Dragon Pulse
-Toxic
*Main tank for the team. High Defense and a fairly well attack for doing some damage before going down.

5. Machamp (Fighting)
-Fire Punch
-Ice Punch
-Brick Break
-Strength
*When he hits, he does immense damage with the variety. Does fairly well against a variety of types.

6. Metagross (Steel-Psychic)
-Meteor Mash
-Zen Headbutt
-Iron Head
-Psychic
*Temporary, only one not at lv 100. But the nature augments sp. def and hinders speed. not quite sure if he's to stay or not.

Any ideas/recommendations and movesets for a number 6 and any other possible replacements+movesets for others is greatly appreciated. But i would like an overall evaluation of the current team too. Thanks!

i mean not like super competitive, but i do play with friends once in a while. ususally i win, currently 26-2. but usually, we go by certain rules/standards sometimes. like Unova region only, or only past gens, or no restrictions. in which case, i have certain substitutes which help, but, i want to work out my kinks in the team and get a good number 6 and switch out any moves which arent needed.

Just a question, are you trying to do competitive battle? Because if you are wanting to battle people online there are some significant flaws to you team.

First of all the good things about your team:
Your metagross is a good addition to your team. He has one of the highest stats in the game and really good typing. Your move set for him is proper, his nature is ok because he lacks speed anyways so hindering to speed is not a problem.

Machamp is good, but... Strength... Really? How about another move?

Electrode is average considering he has really good speed but his sp atk is just meh...

Bad things about your team:
Ho oh is considered uber is competitive play, not allowed to use in normal battle

Feraligatr is one of the poor choices among water types because he excels in atk not sp atk which water is usually strong at. Also if you have waterfall you don't need surf cuz he is atk.

Steelix has good defense but his sp def is not that good, and his typing is only average for a tank. If you are looking for a tank take a look at bronzong or skarmory, they are tough to take out. Your move set for him is pretty good tho.

Well if you are not playing competitive then none of the above really matters.
Go to smogon.com and press on the OU tier to see the best pokemons to use in battles.

Hope this helped
