Sooo, yeah, I'm gonna build a team around Scrafty.

^ This guy is awesome .

After considering a lot, this is my team.

Celebi @ Life Orb
Modest / Natural Cure
232 HP / 240 SpA / 36 Spe
Stealth Rock
Leaf Storm
Hidden Power [Fire]

Stealth-rocker and special sweeper, not much lol.

Excadrill @ Air Ballon
Adamant / Sand Rush
4 HP / 252 Att / 252 Spe
Rapid Spin
Swords Dance
Rock Slide

A powerhouse. Rapid Spinner, and running sand rush because of the oh so common tyranitar.

Jellicent @ Leftovers
Bold / Water Absorb
252 HP / 56 Def / 200 SpD
Will o Wisp
Shadow Ball

Giving 3 immunities to my team, this guy is great, especially because of the fighting immmunity that Scrafty suffers.

Scrafty @ Life Orb
Jolly / Moxie
4 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Spe
Dragon Dance
Drain Punch
Ice Punch

The star of the team, just great. After a dragon dance this thig is a beast. Drain punch for recovery, crunch for a good stab, and ice punch to deal with dragons.

Miltank @ Leftovers
Impish / Herbivore
252 HP / 56 Def / 200 SpD
Milk Drink
Heal Bell
Body Slam
Rock Slide

Bringing another immunity thanks to herbivore, this guy can easily switch into nattorei, jellicents worst nightmare. Great, great tank.

Hydregion @ Life Orb
Timid / Levitate
4 HP /252 SpA / 252 Spe
Dragon Pulse
Dark Pulse
Flash Cannon

An amazing sweeper and powerhouse, that brings another 2 immunities, for an amazing number of 7 immunities :O

and i will love to see that day
that day is mine
when she will marry me outside with the willow trees

Just a few things I noticed.

You might want to opt for a spinner other than Excadrill , seeing as you lack Sand Stream, and that sorta makes him ehhh at best. I suggest:

[email protected] / Shed Shell
Trait: Sturdy
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
Evs: 252 HP / 6 Atk / 252 SDef
Ivs: 0 Speed
- Spikes
- Rapid Spin
- Gyro Ball / Earthquake / Volt Switch
- Toxic Spikes / Earthquake / Volt Switch

You seem to be worried about Ferrothorn, so with Forry spinning instead of Excadrill you pretty much wall him, though be wary of Leech Seed if you plan on staying in for extended periods of time. Also considering you lacked a sturdier steel type to resist dragon attacks, I feel Forry would fit in just fine.

Also I feel that you should replace Miltank with something else, as it may be able to switch into Ferrothorn, but it can do nothing much in return.

Jellicent should run a variant of the following moveset:

Jellicent @ Leftovers
Trait: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 172 Def / 84 Spe or 252 HP / 252 Def / 6 SpD
Calm Nature (+SpD, -Atk) / Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Scald / Surf
- Recover
- Taunt / Shadow Ball / Ice Beam
- Toxic / Will-o-Wisp / Taunt

Just a few things I noticed off the bat, Ill come back if I spot anything else.

Excadrill: Jolly > Adamant. This means that you'll tie with other Jolly Excadrill and you'll have to pray that yours will go first.

Hydreigon's coverage sucks. I think it'd be a good revenge killer with this:
-Draco Meteor
-Fire Blast
-U-turn/Dark Pulse
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf
