You're going to have to do some re-breeding/resetting with some of your Pokémon, I'm afraid.

Hasty wastes away Cresselia's incredibly high Defense. It's meant to be a support 'mon rather than an offensive one:
-Moonlight
-Psychic
-Hidden Power (Fighting)/Ice Beam
-Thunder Wave/Toxic
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
Item: Leftovers

Togekiss should use a Bold nature. Luck-based items like Quick Claw are frowned down upon competitively, as they need, well, luck, not skill, to work:
-Thunder Wave
-Air Slash
-Roost
-Aura Sphere/Nasty Plot
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/56 Def/200 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace

Calm nature is good for Heatran. The EV spread should be 248 HP/252 SDef/8 Spe:
-Lava Plume
-Stealth Rock/Roar
-Will-o-Wisp/Toxic
-Protect
Nature: Calm
EVs: 248 HP/252 SDef/8 Spe
Item: Leftovers

Which Lati you intend to use depends if you want to go offensive or defensive with it:

Latias:
-Calm Mind
-Dragon Pulse
-Substitute/Hidden Power (Fire)/Psyshock
-Recover
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers

or
-Draco Meteor
-Psyshock
-Surf/Hidden Power (Fire)
-Recover
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

or
-Reflect
-Light Screen
-Healing Wish
-Draco Meteor
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Light Clay

Latios:
-Draco Meteor
-Psyshock/Thunderbolt
-Surf
-Trick/Hidden Power (Fire)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

or
-Draco Meteor
-Psyshock/Thunderbolt
-Surf/Hidden Power (Fire)
-Recover
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

or
-Calm Mind
-Dragon Pulse
-Surf
-Recover/Psyshock
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

or
-Reflect
-Light Screen
-Memento
-Dragon Pulse
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Light Clay

A Bold nature is wasted on something like Thundurus-T; it's meant to be an offensive 'mon. If you can get someone to trade you a Timid Thundurus from White, you can use the Reveal Glass to change it to its Therian forme:
-Agility
-Thunderbolt
-Hidden Power (Ice)
-Focus Blast/Grass Knot
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

or
-Thunderbolt
-Volt Switch
-Hidden Power (Ice)
-Grass Knot/Focus Blast
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Expert Belt

or
-Thunderbolt
-Volt Switch
-Hidden Power (Ice)
-Focus Blast
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf

or
-Nasty Plot
-Thunderbolt
-Hidden Power (Ice)
-Focus Blast/Substitute
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Leftovers

Volcarona's Quiver Dance sets can be all-out offensive or even defensive. Adamant also wastes away its high Special Attack. You can always use something like Pidove or Ducklett as your Fly slave:
-Quiver Dance
-Fiery Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Roost
Nature: Bold
EVs: 240 HP/216 Def/52 Spe
Item: Leftovers

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

or
-Substitute
-Quiver Dance
-Bug Buzz
-Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers

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

iight thank you guess i am going to have to do some major trading but the reason is used quick claw is because you can not use two of the same items I believe when competing. So I got a lot of work to do to make my team better but do you recommend switching out a pokemon because I was using both of the eon twins because it was cool.

You can have more of the same item, I believe people don't usually put the Item Clause in effect. There are also better items to choose from than Quick Claw. [will edit this post when I'm on computer]

Ok so I have took what yall told me and remodeled the team. I will use heatran and togekiss with your preferences
So here is the new team
Heatran same nature
Togekiss your preference
I have a lvl 68 cresselia with a relaxed personality
hp 249
def 195
sp atk 124
sp def 181
speed 140
ability: levitate

Moves: trick room, psychic, light screen, safeguard not sure on this move

larvitar atm gna make it a tyranitar with sandstream ability
adamant nature
moves: stone edge, dark pulse, earthquake, pursuit
ability: sand stream

mudkip= swampert
adamant nature as well
ability: torrent
moves: waterfall, earthquake, ice punch, toxic

So as you can see I am making a team that will floursih in the sand stream and with trick room makes swampert and tyranitar flourish at the speed game.
But as you can see I am missing that 6th man
I am considering garchomp but I believe that he is banned from competitions since he is OU or dragonite, blissey, or what do you recommend?
