Possible Hard mode team

Hi! As the title suggest, I am looking for a decent hard mode team. I just got to medchi town, so I can adjust my team accodingnly. I love difficulty, so as every masochist would do, I didn’t took D.Bulbuzar as my starter (I took D.Squirtle).

I was wondering what I should get in my team. Keep in mind that I can’t breed Delta since the D.Ditto is only avaliable during the post-game. This is why i try not to get some in my team, causing imperfect IV Pokémon and giving me a disadvantage. Shure, there are IV Stones avaliable and I can easily farm Dream Mist in the Dream Realm to “cook” some whit La Feu, but I don’t know how much I could use this technique. My starter is kinda terrible because he have a neutral nature, I lost patience after 2 hours of reset.

So far, I figured out this team:

Gengar @ Life Orb
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
IVs: 29 HP
Timid Nature
-Shadow Ball
-Sludge Wave
-Focus Blast

Starmie @ Life Orb
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
IVs: 29 HP
Timid Nature
-Rapid Spin
-Hydro Pump

Scizor @ Leftovers
Ability: Technician
EVs: 130 HP / 252 Atk / 128 Spe
Adamant Nature
-Bullet Punch
-U-turn / Bug Bite
-Swords Dance

Delta Hydreigon @ Choice Scarf / Leftovers
Ability: Intoxicate
EVs: 4 Hp / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
-Hyper Voice
-Earth Power
-Dark Pulse
-Corrode / U-Turn / Substitute

Hydreigon @ Choice Specs
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
-Dark Pulse
-Draco Meteor
-Flash Cannon
-Flamethrower / Fire Blast

Delta Gallade @ D.Galladite
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
-Icile Crash
-Wild Charge
-Ice Shard
-Swords Dance

it will be the forst time I play a Pokémon game whitout my starter in my team, but if its for the sake of keeping up whit the game, I am willing to. Any comment or suggestion?

I aslo hesitate to use regural Gardevoir, she is my third favorite character and she have an awesome matchup against Kayla’s Baton Pass team. However, thit Gengar and D. Gallade, I feel like my team is weak on the physical side.
