As Jake said, Hitmontop has no need for Choice Scarf. Hitmontop is better off as a defensive Rapid Spinner, as seen here:
-Rapid Spin
-Close Combat/Hi Jump Kick
-Stone Edge/Sucker Punch
Nature: Impish
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Intimidate

Archeops makes use of Gem + Acrobatics better because it gains STAB on that move. Ambipom also needs something to hit Steels:
-Fake Out
-Return/Double Hit
-Low Kick
-Beat Up/Shadow Claw
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Technician

While Roserade can take on a cleric role, its low physical defense makes that task hard to do, so Togekiss or Umbreon do the job better. But still, Roserade is a good offensive 'mon in its own right:
-Leaf Storm
-Sludge Bomb
-Sleep Powder/Hidden Power (Fire)
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Choice Specs
Ability: Natural Cure

-Giga Drain
-Sludge Bomb
Nature: Calm
EVs: 252 HP/240 Def/16 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Natural Cure
