    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
