Why Choice Specs and Rest on Shaymin? I would either try running Life Orb on it or ditching Rest for Air Slash, letting Umbreon provide heals via Wish. Another option for a hard-hitting grass pokemon would be this Roserade set:

Item: Life Orb
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 152 HP / 252 SAtk / 104 Spd
Nature: Modest [+SAtk / -Atk]
- Sludge Bomb
- Leaf Storm
- Rest
- Sleep Powder

You can replace Sleep Powder with HP Ice/Fire if you're still worried about coverage. It not only hits harder than Shaymin, but it can absorb toxic spikes.

I don't think you should run phazing Hariyama on your team unless you have entry hazards on your team; that or you are really worried about set-up sweepers. Rapid spin support for Victini (which you should consider using Choice Scarf to outspeed opponents) would be really nice, so try replacing with a Hitmontop set like this:

Item: Leftovers
Ability: Intimidate
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
- Toxic
- Rapid Spin
- Close Combat
- Sucker Punch
