Hippopotas: It's really, really slow. Its current set is fine, but it doesn't need a Jolly nature to get it going. If 2 weather inducing Pokemon are sent out at the same time at the start of the battle, the slower Pokemon's weather effect dominates over the faster one. So it has to be Relaxed with these EVs: 252 HP/164 Atk/92 Def.

Cacturne: Even with Jolly, it's still too slow. You can go with an Adamant nature, your current EV spread and this set:
-Substitute
-Focus Punch
-Sucker Punch
-Seed Bomb/Swords Dance
Item: Leftovers

Quagsire: Why Surf when it's Impish? Also, the Water/Ground combination is walled by Grass types. Replace Surf with Stone Edge or Ice Punch.

um... i have to agree with Platinum about Quagsire's typing, but i would keep surf :D - either change it's nature to make it a massive tank, or swap it to Whiscash (i liek whiscash because it is epic, but Quagsire has Water absorb, so it's up to you) with this set

Whiscash @ Life Orb/Leftovers
Adamant Nature
4 HP - 252 ATK - 252 speed
Anticipation

Waterfall/Aqua Tail
Stone Edge/Rock Slide
Earthquake
Dragon Dance/Zen Headbutt

also, whether you use Whiscash OR quagsire, make sure you have a pokemon that knows Fire, Bug, Flying or Ice-Type moves... (bug is best in BL, as Gallade has Leaf Blade, but you are in NU, so you could use any)

I don't really like focus punch, and I like leech seed so much...
I'll make a relaxed hippopotas then.
Thanks for the advices.

I meant waterfall, sorry XD
I'm keeping quagsire, since I want recover 'cause I want to be defensive.
I have waterfall to deal with other earth pokémon (since earthquake hits rock and steel) but I think ice punch could be fine (that way I have an ice move) and I already have a bug move on my magneton... So I'll look for a fire move and see how to get it... maybe I can replace someone and get a camerupt?

I think you should use the Cacturne set that was given.
Substitute + Focus Punch = Ow!

Overall although its not a RMT it's pretty good (:

Can I ask though, whats Gligar's nature?

Well I thought everything that was post here was a rate my team XD

I like leech seed 'cause I can recover with ease the HP used for substitutes (leech seed and leftovers) and if they miss an attack (sand veil) it would be cool 'cause I would heal 4 times... I think I can try both, and then pick the one I like most

Is it really good? I thought about it while I was really sleepy, I even hit the keyboard with my forehead...

Gligar's nature would be one that raises all stats... XD nop +def -SpAt, can't remember the name.

Cacturne can't take many hits D:
So basically you should hit hard and fast.

And the Nature is Impish (:

Just so he can restore Hp every turn, he's to frail to set up Leech seed.
