Hi Jump Kick is the better option for Mienshao over Drain Punch. Sure, the recoil stings a bit, but Mienshao can already heal some HP via Regenerator by switching out.

While Agility on Scizor seems tempting to fix its low Speed, and while it's also tempting to BP it, Smeargle can BP boosts more easily. It's better off scouting or smashing things with Choice Band or setting up Swords Dance and smashing things from there:
-U-turn
-Bullet Punch
-Superpower
-Pursuit/Quick Attack
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 248 HP/252 Atk/8 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Technician

or
-Swords Dance
-Bullet Punch
-Superpower/Brick Break
-Bug Bite/Roost/Quick Attack
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Leftovers
Ability: Technician

or
-Swords Dance
-Bullet Punch
-Bug Bite/Brick Break/Superpower
-Roost
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 HP/40 Atk/216 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Iron Plate
Ability: Technician

Volcarona is a better alternative over Chandelure; despite the enhanced Rock weakness, it has a higher Speed to utilize its high Special Attack:
-Quiver Dance
-Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Roost
Nature: Bold
EVs: 240 HP/216 Def/52 Spe
Item: Leftovers

or
-Quiver Dance
-Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Rest
Nature: Modest
EVs: 160 HP/252 SAtk/96 Spe
Item: Chesto Berry

or
-Quiver Dance
-Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Hidden Power (Rock/Ground)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

Hydreigon can't learn Nasty Plot. The only offensive setup move it learns is Work Up. Hydreigon should take advantage of its high-powered moves to break down walls:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-Superpower
-Roost/Earthquake/Earth Power/Dark Pulse
Nature: Rash/Mild
EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Expert Belt

or
-Substitute
-Dragon Pulse
-Focus Blast
-Fire Blast/Roost
Nature: Modest
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

or
-Draco Meteor
-Focus Blast
-Fire Blast/Flamethrower
-U-turn/Dark Pulse
Nature: Modest
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs

Azelf isn't good honestly; there are other Pokemon in OU who can do its job better. Rotom-W is a good option so that you have Volt-Turn access:
-Volt Switch
-Hydro Pump
-Hidden Power (Ice)
-Trick/Thunderbolt
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf
