Dude, do you plan on using this as a 'competitive' team, or is this 'ingame'?

i can help!! EVs are hidden point used to raise stats. For example, battlin a whishmur in RSE will give u 1 HP EV. It takes 4 EVs to raise a stat and there is max of 252 EVs possible on 1 pokemon. essentially, when battling a pokemon, the EV u will get will be of the opposing pokemons dominant stat (i.e. Charizard give SP. ATT.) and so on

You'd probably want to check out serebii for detailed and correct information about EVs/IVs.

For EVs

For IVs

I'm pretty sure you can get 510 EV points on a single pokemon - only that 255 is the maximum amount of EVs you can get onto a particular stat. I'm not going to explain further - check out the links =P

THis has a nice Special movepool, and has a great SAtk stat. Don't use both Stun Spore, and Grasswhistle on the same mon. Its redundant. Energy ball has more Power, and more PP than Giga Drain.

Alakazam (M)
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Synchronize
Item: Mind plate
Shadow Ball/Energy Ball
Psychic
Calm Mind
Recover

This Nature really is terrible for him. Its -SAtk, which is Zam's best stat. I suggest you breed for a better one.

Empoleon (M)
Nature: Sassy
Ability: Torrent
Item: Splash Plate
Stealth Rocks
Roar

Surf
[B]Aqua Ring/Toxic/B]

Well, Surf, Aqua Jet, Hydro Pump, and Brine is redundant. Aqua Ring is a BM, so you might not want it, but you might want a better nature.

Luxray (F)
Nature: Brave
Ability: Intimidate
Item: Magnet
Thunder fang
Howl
Ice Fang

Crunch

Spark and Thunder Fang is Redundant, and Charge just plain sucks. Howl and Ice Fang are also BMs, but I suggest you breed for a better Nature.

Infernape (M)
Nature: Modest
Ability: Blaze
Item: Scope Lens
Flare Blitz
Thunder Punch
Close Combat
Earthquake

I don't think Taunt is a good idea on him. No time to set up. Earthquake has good type coverage, and Thunder Punch hits waters. I suggest you breed this for a better nature, because Modest is not good.

Staraptor (F)
Nature: Naive
Ability: Intimidate
Item: Sky Plate
Close Combat
Return
Aerial Ace
Quick Attack

Return is just better then Endeavour, and Quick Attack hits anything that outspeeds this when their low on HP.

That is my current team. I used to have a golem before I got infernape over the GTS. I don't know much about the natures and most of my guys are over 60 so not sure if that'd matter anymore. I'm looking mostly for commets about my pokemon on the team and need some help with there skills. I have at least one of every tm found in diamond and can transfer more from Ruby. Also the items I am kind of iffy with and unsure what to use. Any help with my would be appreciated.
The Plates really don't help. Leftovers are good choices, as well as shell Bell.

Your natures are not good. Try these:

Roserade: Modest
Alakazam: Timid/Modest
Empoleon: Calm
Luxray: Adamant
Infernape: Adamant
Staraptor: Jolly/Adamant

Thank you leman for the input, I really appreciate it. I'll definately work on breeding for new natures. Also, what exactly do you mean by "leftovers" and as for me using plates on most of them its just because I wasn't sure what to really use. And for staraptor isn't having aerie ace and quick attack redundant since aerie ace almost always hits first? Also for staraptor I was thinking instead of wing attack (was changed to quick attack) to put brave bird now that I am 1 level from 49 where I learn it. 1 last thing, how is the setup with these 6 looking? Should I trade any out? If it will better my team i'll definately work on getting mon from the GBA versions.

Aerial Ace does not always goes first. It has 100% Acc, always, no mater what.
