Hey again, so this will be my 3rd RMT now, and it's basically what I think is a refined version of my previous team, but I still think it has quite a few flaws and need you guys to give me some help! Any CC would be greatly appreciated!

Gliscor@ Toxic Orb
Jolly Nature
Poison Heal
Ice Fang - Earthquake - Swords Dance - Protect
252 HP | 184 Def | 72 Spe

My lead, this new Ev spread is so much better than the old Sand Veil 252Hp | 252 Spe spread, the extra Def Ev's have made him stay in much more longer along with Poision Heal. Protect is there to scout for the oh so common HP Ice etc and activate the Toxic Orb, Swords Dance can make him quite scary once he has +1 or 2 under his belt and Ice Fang and Earthquake provide good coverage.

Starmie@ Life Orb
Timid Nature
Natural Cure
Thunderbolt - Ice Beam - Surf - Psychic
6 Special Defense | 252 Special Attack | 252 Speed

Great type variety helps me alot, and decided to switch Choice Specs for Life Orb so I can abuse all the coverage even more now still with some added power in there. One of my many special attackers, not so much as a sweeper really, just there to annoy and force the opponent to switch out to avoid getting a super effective in the face.

Hydreigon@ Choice Scarf
Modest Nature
Dragon Pulse - Dark Pulse - Flamethrower - Focus Blast
6Hp | 252 Sp.Atk | 252 Spe

My badboy choiced pokemon, I ran modest because the scarf makes up for lost speed. He can also make a good revenge killer along with Jolteon with the Scarf. And also again like Starmie his has a wide type coverage which is nice.

Forretress @leftovers
Relaxed Nature
Spikes - Volt Switch - Stealth Rock - Rapid Spin
252 Hp | 252 SpD | 4Def

My wall and SR'er, working pretty well now, alot better than my old one Ferrothorn since so many people have a counter for him. He's also my Rapid Spinner so quite a crucial guy in such long battles so try to keep him in as long as possible, however he can end up been setup fodder, so I've whacked Volt Switch on him over Gyro Ball to get out as fast as possible.

Scizor @ Life Orb
Adamant Nature
Swords Dance - Bullet Punch - Brick Break - X-Scissor
6 Hp | 252 Atk | 252 Spd

My main sweeper, well that is if he has the time to set up properly, not many thingscan survive a SD booster, technician boosted, STAB boosted Bullet punch without loosing a fair chunk of health. I've managed to produce a fair amount of sweeps with this guy so I'm tempted to keep him over the 'bench' pokemon down below, it's just the x4 fire weakness him and Forretress possess which makes me think that could really puncture my team if say Starmie was out.

Jolteon @ Life Orb
Timid Nature
Volt Absorb
HP Ice - Shadow Ball - Thunderbolt - Volt Switch
4Hp | 252 Sp.Atk | 252 Spe

And finally my cleaner, outspeeds most things and makes a decent revenge killer, HP Ice to surprise any other Gliscor and Dragon types, Shadow Ball gives needed coverage whilst T-Bolt gives great STAB and Volt Switch helps me escape attacks which Jolt is to frail to take.

That's my current team as of now. But I feel it lacks synthergy and also, extreamly fire weak with me having two pokemon
x4 weak to it. x_x So here are my 'bench' pokemon at the moment, not sure whether to add them into the team yet.

Infernape @ Life Orb
Adamant Nature
Close Combat – U-Turn - Overheat – Mach Punch
6 Hp | 252 Atk | 252 Spd

Conkeldurr @ Leftovers / Flame Orb
Adamant Nature
Bulk Up - Mach Punch -Drain Punch - Payback
120 HP | 252 Atk | 136 SpD
^ These two would most probably replace Scizor..

And that's it as of now, I'll make it all much easier to read later on, any comments are appreciated, thanks!
