The theme is creative and everything, and hopefully the rate kept it intact.

Empoleon isn't really great, and Gastrodon is generally a better Special Wall, Rotom-W could be used for offensive purposes, but I think Gastrodon is the best fit, for some Specially Defensive Bulk to support your two Physical Walls.

Gastrodon @ Leftovers
252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
Trait: Storm Drain
~ Earth Power
~ Ice Beam / Scald
~ Toxic
~ Recover

However, I think you should swap Empoleon for Choice Scarf Serperior, when Serperior's DW ability, Contrary is released, hopefully it fits into your theme, since Serperior looks pretty proud, to me.

Anyhow, for the Serperior set

Serperior @ Choice Scarf
4 HP/252 SpA/252 Speed
Timid Nature
Trait: Contrary
-Leaf Storm [boosts your attack by 2, every time you use it]
-Hidden Power Fire
Anything can go in the last two spots, since Serperior has a lackluster Special Movepool.

As for Jynx, well, not going to lie, I laughed reading the entry.

I'm hoping people can find Infernape to be even somewhat lustful, since I think it would really help your type synergy, and is one of the best Nasty Plot Sweepers in the game.

Infernape @ Life Orb/Leftovers
252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid/Naive Nature [Naive if you use Close Combat on the set]
-Flamethrower/Fire Blast
-Nasty Plot
-Focus Blast/Close Combat [helps beat Blissey]
-Hidden Power Ice/Vacuum Wave

Slaking isn't great at all, but Slowbro is also pretty lazy, and a great Physical Wall this Gen, so using this Slowbro set might be a nice idea.

Slowbro @ Leftovers
252 HP/252 Def/4 SpA
Bold Nature
-Slack Off
-Toxic/Thunder Wave/Ice Beam

Snorlax should probably replaced, since it really isn't that great, this Gen. A Specially Defensive Choice Band Tyranitar could help you maintain weather control, and counter Lati@s well and has good synergy with Slowbro.

Tyranitar @ Choice Band
252 HP / 36 Atk / 220 SpD
Adamant Nature
-Stone Edge
-Superpower/Aqua Tail

I think having Skarmory over Honchkrow might be a good idea, since it can help against Dragons, but you could always use Scrafty, if you want to keep the offensive presence there. Scrafty probably goes better with the "Greed" Theme, since a ghetto lizard doesn't stop hustlin' and gettin' money.

Anyhow, sets for both, if you so choose to use them.

Skarmory @ Shed Shell/Leftovers
252 HP/252 Def/4 Speed
Impish Nature
Trait: Sturdy
-Brave Bird/Drill Peck

Scrafty @ Leftovers
4 HP/252 Atk/252 Speed
Jolly Nature
Trait: Shed Skin
-Drain Punch
-Dragon Dance
-Ice Punch

Finally, I'd take Gyarados off of the team, in favor for Choice Band Dragonite, which is a great offensive Pokemon, which can take a ton of hits. Extremespeed can net a ton of revenge kills, while Multiscale allows you to bypass unboosted hits that would normally OHKO, and retaliate accordingly.

Dragonite @ Choice Band
252 Attack/4 SpD/252 Speed
Adamant/Jolly Nature
Trait: Multiscale
~ Outrage
~ Fire Punch
~ Dragon Claw / Waterfall
~ ExtremeSpeed
