Ferrothorn can't learn Toxic Spikes, FYI, so you're best off with:
-Stealth Rock/Spikes
-Leech Seed
-Power Whip/Protect
-Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP/48 Def/208 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Use Bold and this EV spread on Jellicent: 248 HP/216 Def/44 Spe.

For some reason, I feel that Yanmega is a bit out of place because of its common weaknesses. I'll see if someone can suggest a replacement, but if you want to keep it, use this set to take advantage of Tinted Lens:
-Bug Buzz
-Air Slash
-Hidden Power (Ground)/Giga Drain
-U-turn
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs
Ability: Tinted Lens

How about this set for Blissey? It needs Flamethrower more than it needs Ice Beam, though. It can also use Seismic Toss for more consistent damage:
-Aromatherapy
-Softboiled
-Seismic Toss/Flamethrower
-Toxic
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure

Salamence outclasses Dragonite as a fast offensive sweeper, so it's best with a bulky set:
-Dragon Dance
-Dragon Claw/Outrage
-Fire Punch/Earthquake
-Roost
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 252 HP/44 Atk/212 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Multiscale

Since 2 of your Pokemon are weak to Stealth Rock, how about Hitmontop as a Rapid Spinner to get said hazard off?:
-Rapid Spin
-Close Combat
-Foresight/Toxic
-Stone Edge/Sucker Punch/Rest
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Intimidate

The reason why Tinted Lens is preferred on the Specs set is that:
1. It's counterproductive with Speed Boost. If Yanmega is up against a Pokemon that can counter it, it may be forced to switch, erasing the Speed boosts it accumulated.
2. Bug/Flying is normally a poor offensive typing walled by many Pokemon. Tinted Lens doubles the damage resisted attacks do, so Bug/Flying now essentially provides flawless coverage.

If you're using Speed Boost Yanmega, use this:
-Protect
-Bug Buzz
-Air Slash
-Hidden Power (Ground/Fire)
Nature: Modest
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Speed Boost

Edit: Aromatherapy cures the status problems all your Pokemon have, even the ones not in battle.
