I'll assume this is a Gen V team (and rate it as such). If it's Gen IV, I can change the rate to suit it.

Solrock is sadly outclassed by other Baton Passers. AncientPower's stat boosts don't happen often enough to be BPed. If you want to pass stat boosts, use Ninjask:
-Swords Dance
-Baton Pass
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 248 HP/192 Atk/68 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost

Choice Pokemon tend to hit and run and since you're BPing the Speed boosts to Machamp, it's not recommended. A Sub + 3 Attacks set is your best bet:
-Stone Edge
-Ice Punch/ThunderPunch
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 212 HP/252 Atk/44 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: No Guard

Snorlax is too slow to set up Belly Drum, but it's bulky enough to set up Curse late game:
-Return/Body Slam
-Crunch/Earthquake/Fire Punch
Nature: Careful
EVs: 188 HP/104 Def/216 SDef
Item: Leftovers/Chesto Berry
Ability: Thick Fat

Gengar is best off using Substitute to ease prediction due to its poor defenses:
-Disable/Pain Split/Thunderbolt/Hidden Power (Fire)
-Shadow Ball
-Focus Blast (has perfect coverage with Shadow Ball)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

Cloyster gained Shell Smash in Gen V, so it should be using it:
-Shell Smash
-Icicle Spear
-Rock Blast
-Razor Shell/Hydro Pump
Nature: Jolly/Naive
EVs: 48 HP/252 Atk/208 Spe or 252 Atk/48 SAtk/208 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry/White Herb/Focus Sash
Ability: Skill Link

If this is Gen IV, use this Cloyster set as a lead:
-Ice Shard
Nature: Quiet
EVs: 220 HP/104 Atk/180 SAtk/4 Spe
Item: Focus Sash
Ability: Shell Armor

If you're using Dragon Dance on Dragonite, don't use Superpower because it kills your Attack boosts; use Earthquake instead. If you're playing Gen V, Multiscale should be the ability to use.
