This is a Platinum team that from what I know is all legit. I traded for Celebi, Flygon, and Lanturn. So don't murder me about having hacked Pokemon. I just chose my favorites.

Natural Cure
Life Orb
252Atk/252 Speed/4 SpAtk
Heal Bell
Seed Bomb
Zen Headbutt

This is support. When everyone has rested, it comes in, Heal Bells, then does some other stuff depending on the opposing Pokemon.

Snow Cloak
Focus Sash
252 SpAtk/252 Speed/4 Def
Shadow Ball
Ice Beam
Destiny Bond

Basically, Froslass comes in, Destiny Bonds, and at least takes out one Poke.

Inner Focus
Wise Glasses
252 SpAtk/252 Speed/4 Def
Aura Sphere
Dragon Pulse
Water Pulse

Lucario is just a beast. Water Pulse is for those nasty fire/ground types. SPECIAL SWEEPER

Togekiss Serene Grace
252 Speed/252 SPAttk/4 Def
Aura Sphere
Air Slash
Thunder Wave

Togekiss is very annoying. It has Air Slash because it is BORN to abuse Serene Grace. It T-Waves, then Air Slashes and gets crits 60%.

Flygon Levitate
Choice Scarf
252 Speed/252 Atk/4 Def
Stone Edge

Lead. He either EQ's or Outrages. Depending on what is out. Physical sweeper. When injured, U-Turn.

Lantern Volt Absorb
252 Def/252 HP/4 SpDef
Aqua Ring

Special Tank. Sets up Aqua Ring, And recovers 3/16 of health each turn. Switches in when Togekiss is in and someone has Electric moves.

So, how does it look?

I need another move for Lucario.

Why physical Celebi? It's better on the special side. But if you're using it physically, at least use this:
-Swords Dance
-Baton Pass
-Seed Bomb
-Zen Headbutt/Recover/Heal Bell
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe or 252 HP/4 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers

For Togekiss, don't you mean "flinch" for Air Slash? It doesn't cause crits. It's better off with a bulkier spread which doesn't need much Speed:
-Thunder Wave
-Air Slash
-Aura Sphere/Substitute/Nasty Plot
-Roost (don't use Rest, unless you use Sleep Talk as well, are using ChestoRest or have the Natural Cure ability)
Nature: Bold
EVs: 252 HP/188 Def/68 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace

Rest is useless on Froslass; it's too defensively frail to use it effectively. Replace it with Taunt to force the opponent to attack Froslass. Change the item to Focus Sash so that Froslass can attack, survive a potentially fatal hit and KO back with Destiny Bond. If you can afford to re-breed, make Spikes go over Shadow Ball.

On Lanturn, Aqua Ring is a waste of a move slot because it has better things to do. You can also make Lanturn a parafusionist in case Togekiss goes down:
-Thunder Wave
-Confuse Ray
-Surf/Ice Beam
Nature: Calm
EVs: 36 HP/220 Def/252 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Volt Absorb

Make Lucario a Choice Specs user. Water Pulse doesn't offer much coverage:
-Aura Sphere
-Dark Pulse
-Dragon Pulse/Hidden Power (Rock)
-Vacuum Wave/Psychic
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs
