      Hello nugget bridge, I am Blue42 and here is a team that has been in development for many months. I feel like it is almost where it needs to be, but it needs some tweaks here and there that I cannot seem to identify. This is not an umbreon team persay, but I titled this "Umbreon and his homies" since Umbreon is rarely seen in VGC and has an interesting part to play.
       
       Anubis
      Umbreon @ Black Glasses      
      Ability: Synchronize  
      EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD  
      Careful Nature  
      - Wish  
      - Protect  
      - Foul Play  
      - Helping Hand  
         Umbreon is my cleric/support/physical mon counter. Having helping hand to boost my teammates attack, and wish to heal itself, or a mon switched in. Protect allows for Umbreon to get a free wish, and also (obviously) protect itself against a predicted attack. Its Foul Play with black glasses can deal heavy damage on pokemon that have a high attack stat, and is able to bring the common primal groudon to a yellow health bar. Umbreon's bulk is a major factor in its usage. Despite its type advantage Umbreon can easily survive a low kick or power up punch from a kangaskhan and is able to take it down to at least half health. 
        Haeven
      Gengar @ Focus Sash  
      Ability: Levitate  
      EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe  
      Timid Nature  
      IVs: 0 Atk  
      - Icy Wind  
      - Sludge Bomb  
      - Will-O-Wisp  
      - Shadow Ball  
      Gengar is mainly a special attacker with two "support" moves. Icy wind is used to slow down opposing fast pokemon, and for some heavy spread damage on mega salamances. Sludge Bomb is the fairy killer, capable of either OHKOing or 2HKOing a Geomanced Xenrneas. Will-O-Wisp is used primarily when up against Mega Kangaskhan and when a sucker punch is predicted, since a parental bond sucker punch can take down Gengar in one turn. Shadow ball is Gengar's last move so it has a Ghost type STAB. Gengar is holding a focus sash, because I chose an sweeping spread instead of a bulky ev spread, and this gengar would extremely frail without it. 
          Mama Bear
      Kangaskhan (F) @ Kangaskhanite  
      Ability: Scrappy  
      Level: 50  
      EVs: 244 HP / 252 Atk / 12 SpD  
      Adamant Nature  
      - Power-Up Punch  
      - Return  
      - Fake Out  
      - Sucker Punch  
      Kangaskhan(M) is my physical sweeper who's priority moves, and attack stat plows down opponents. Its scrappy ability allows it to hit ghost types with a fake out or return while not mega'd, and its parental bond lets Kangaskahan hit twice. Kang's power up punch can scrape away some damage on opponents while strengthening her own attack stat. Return was chosen due to it being a great STAB, and because it doesn't have recoil damage, unlike double edge. Sucker punch can be used to get a quick KO, due to its priority, and is able to take down ghost types easily. 
      Enrique
      Ludicolo @ Assault Vest  
      Ability: Swift Swim  
      Level: 50  
      EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
      Modest Nature  
      - Fake Out  
      - Scald  
      - Ice Beam  
      - Giga Drain  
      Ludicolo was the last pokemon I fit into my team, and so far has been one of the mvps. It's grass and water typing allows it to flourish in Kyogre's rain, and be viable in Groudon's rays. Ludicolo's fake out prevents opposing pokemon from moving that turn, allowing Ludicolo's partner to either set-up or deal some heavy damage. Ludicolo's scald is able to OHKO Groudon in clear weather, or the rain, and his Giga Drain can wear away at Groudon in the sun, and deal some damage on Kyogre in the clear or rainy weather while at the same time regaining health. Ludicolo has ice beam to counter any of the flying types in the format, since most flying type moves deal massive damage. 
       Leviathan
      Kyogre-Primal @ Blue Orb  
      Ability: Primordial Sea  
      EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpA  
      Bold Nature  
      - Thunder  
      - Origin Pulse  
      - Earthquake  
      - Protect  
      Primal Kyogre is a bulky special attacker. Mainly chosen as a counter to Primal Groudon and other Kyogres, it has moves to take down both, as well as all other mons that have weaknesses to water and electric. It has Thunder to damage opposing kyogres, generally taking them down to around 50% HP. Origin Pulse is used to OHKO Primal Groudon in the rain, and earthquake to damage it in Primal Groudon's rays. Protect is used for a variety of situations; for prediction purposes, survival, outlasting a poison/burn, etc. 
        Chaos
      Cresselia @ Iron Ball  
      Ability: Levitate  
      Level: 50  
      EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Spe  
      Calm Nature  
      IVs: 0 Atk  
      - Trick  
      - Skill Swap  
      - Moonlight  
      - Psyshock  
       
      Cresselia is pure chaos on my team. It carries an iron ball to trick away to opponent's speedsters to cut their speed in half and skill swap to pass around abilities, confusing and taking away the opponent's advantage. Cresselia has moonlight to regain its health so it can last even longer on the field, and has Psyshock as a STAB. I have already figured out a number of good combos of abilities that I can switch to my own pokemon using skill swap to benefit them when their abilities no longer serve their purpose, or can be improved in the current situation. 
       
      Any critiques or tips would be amazing and I hope to make this team the best it can be.
       
      Thank you,
      Blue42
