You may post your competitive team builds here to get advice on them, from how to improve the overall functionality of your team to helping you gap holes you may have otherwise overlooked. An example of this would be as follows:

 

Dragonite @ Leftovers
Ability: Multiscale
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- ExtremeSpeed
- Fire Punch
- Thunder Punch
- Waterfall
 
What I'm going for here is a bulky Dragonite with coverage to combat about half of the threats the OU tier has. Fire Punch handles Bisharp which has grown increasingly popular. ExtremeSpeed gives the priority to make up for lack of speed. Thunder Punch handles bulky water types and Waterfall handles my Rock, Ground, and Fire threats.
 
In a typical RMT thread you'd expect responses such as:
 
Well it's bulky sure and you've got decent coverage but you're not addressing your real threats which are going to be either dragons or Ice types. What are you going to do against a Dragonite or Haxorus that has Outrage? Or even Dragon Claw? Try this build instead:
 
Dragonite @ Leftovers
Ability: Multiscale
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
Adamant Nature
- ExtremeSpeed
- Fire Punch
- Dragon Dance
- Outrage/Dragon Claw/Ice Punch

 

You'll find that Dragon Dance will more than make up for losing Thunder Punch (water types aren't really enough of a threat to you to ever need coverage for it.). Outrage gives you the coverage you need against Dragons or you can use Ice Punch and get coverage against Grass type as well.

Okay... first off:

 

Forretress

Spoiler

 

Standard Blissey build, looks fine to me.

 

Your Dusclops is interesting, I'd favor Toxic over Burn since Toxic will result in the eventual death of the opponents pokemon unless immune. Is there a specific reason for this coverage on your team or are you just trying to cover a little bit of everything?

 

Celebi:

Spoiler

 

Your last two are their standard builds and work fine for the roles you've selected for them. I'd favor other pokemon but that's me. Overall not a bad looking team for Gen 3 OU.

I'd say burn is worth the 1/2 attack reduction, especially considering the lack of eviolite in gen III.
