Not bad I'd look at heal ball on Vap 
probs drop Aqua ring

Arc a Mago / Figy I can't remember the right one. 
probs be dropping wild or espeed for morning sun for sustainability 

Chomp I'd run Swords Dance over iron tail 
But that's just me. If I run Z Chomp I wanna have the ability to power right up. 
The only fairy you can't hit with Z ground it Togekiss and you will outspeed and hit with plus 2 

Maybe poison berry on kiss. 
air slash over psy or Baton although I understand why you have baton there.

Some more details with EV spreads would be nice mate.

Thanks Just_JH. I'll be honest, I don't know how to do EV training on Moon version and I don't know how to do it right, depending on the pokemon. Otherwise I would.

Seems pretty good at a first glance. Running the team through Showdown might be a good idea to test it out first so you can tweak it. However my adjustments are as follows;

Venusaur-Mega @ Venusaurite
Ability: Thick Fat
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Leech Seed
- Protect / Substitute
- Sludge Bomb / Giga Drain
- Synthesis

With Venusaur, it's always good to remember it's defensive capabilities in it's Mega form, so an alternative is having a Bold Nature along with those recovery moves, but you can opt to swap Giga Drain with Protect or Substitute.
 
Vaporeon @ Aguav Berry
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Protect
- Wish
- Toxic
- Scald

The Vaporeon is all right but you almost always want to use Wish over Aqua Ring. Leftys is a great item but do consider a 1/4 health Berry for extra longevity. And again, Protect is a solid move for a tank.
 
Arcanine @ Assault Vest
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Extreme Speed
- Flare Blitz
- Wild Charge
- Close Combat

There isn't a lot I'd change on Arcanine, but I do like full offensive Assault Vest sets, you'll be doing as much damage as possible, plus surviving more.
 
Garchomp @ Groundium Z
Ability: Rough Skin
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Outrage
- Iron Head
- Poison Jab
- Earthquake

Garchomp I've changed to use Iron Head over Tail, much more reliable. Outrage is usually the go to Dragon move, and Poison Jab for extra coverage.
 
Aegislash @ Air Balloon / Life Orb / Rocky Helmet
Ability: Stance Change
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Gentle Nature
- Flash Cannon
- Shadow Sneak
- King's Shield
- Autotomize

Aegislash needed a big change imo, it's strength definitely comes from it's Special moves rather than it's Physical moves, especially Flash Cannon. However the big trick with Aegislash is keeping it alive, so focus on it's defensive stats as it already gets Base 150 Sp Atk, it will hit really hard. Autotomize and Flash Cannon is Aegislash's bread and butter, the extra speed makes it extremely annoying to deal with, and Shadow Sneak can win Speed ties.
 
Togekiss @ Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Air Slash
- Wish
- Thunder Wave
- Substitute

Finally, Togekiss is an awesome Pokemon, you can run it in various ways so try different options, this is just my set, very self explanatory.
Timezone is GMT+10 (AEST)
