    Hey guys, ive been trying out this team and its pretty good so far.
    Its physical hyper offense, so no magnezone or special attackers.

    Here we go;

    In short-
    Espeon
    Haxorus
    Dragonite
    Salamance
    Scizor
    Cloyster

    In long-

    Espeon @ light clay
    Magic bounce
    Timid
    252 HP 4 def 252 spd
    Light screen
    Reflect
    Morning sun
    Psyshock

    Dual screens. Its only job, so the last two moves are filler.


    Haxorus @ lum berry
    Mold breaker
    Jolly
    252 att 4 def 252 spd
    Outrage
    Earthquake
    Taunt
    Dragon dance

    My main sweeper. I prefer jolly because my team needs speed.
    Lum berry is to help with outrage and paralysis or burn.


    Dragonite @ lum berry
    Multiscale
    Adamant
    4 HP 252 att 252 spd
    Dragon dance
    Dragon claw
    Fire punch
    ExtremeSpeed

    Easy to set up because of multiscale. Dragon claw so i can switxh
    moves. Lum berry to stop status.


    Salamance @ choice scarf
    Moxie
    Naive
    252 att 4 sp att 252 spd
    Outrage
    Dragon claw
    Earthquake
    Fire blast

    Moxie sweeper and revenge killer.


    Scizor @ life orb
    Technician
    Adamant
    4 HP 252 att 252 spd
    Sword dance
    Bullet punch
    Bug bite
    Superpower

    Great revenge killer and easy to set up. Has a resistance to ice,
    so good with all my dragons.


    Cloyster @ life orb
    Skill link
    Naive
    252 att 4 sp att 252 spd
    Shell smash
    Icicle spear
    Rock blast
    Hydro pump

    Just normal Shell Smash Cloyster. Another resistance to ice,
    and once set up, can easily sweep.


    So there is my team. Please rate, and please remember its
    hyper offense.
    Cheers

        soooo many dragon's :O
        change scizors ev spread to 248ho/252atk/8spd makes it easier to absorb those dragon attacks and personally I would use a choice band on him

        morning sun is kinda terrible because of all the weather :L your so afraid of status why not give it heal bell instead?

        lastly dragonite is a much better dragon dance sweeper than haxorus so I would replace haxorus with something if your opponent sets up on your espeon scarf terrakion would be nice to have

        To expand what the above posters said:

        Espeon is too defensively weak to use Morning Sun. Instead, use Hidden Power (Fire) to hit Steels or Baton Pass to get out of battle.

        I know that your team is inclined on physical offense, but you really, really, really need some form of special offense just so you won't be walled entirely by things like Gliscor, Donphan and Skarmory, If Cloyster goes down, then they wall the freakin' crap out of the team and none of your Dragons would like to get Toxic'd by Gliscor.

        And I agree; Dragonite has an easier setting up Dragon Dance than Haxorus because of Multiscale. And like the others said, use Terrakion instead of Haxorus because it helps with the massive Ice weakness you currently have, plus it also has Swords Dance to help you break through walls more easily:
        -Swords Dance
        -Rock Polish/Substitute
        -Close Combat
        -Stone Edge
        Nature: Jolly/Adamant
        EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
        Item: Air BalloonLife Orb/Rock Gem/Salac Berry

        or
        -Close Combat
        -Stone Edge
        -X-Scissor
        -Quick Attack/Rock Slide/Sacred Sword
        Nature: Jolly
        EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
        Item: Choice Band/Choice Scarf

        or
        -Stealth Rock
        -Taunt/Swords Dance
        -Close Combat
        -Stone Edge
        Nature: Jolly
        EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
        Item: Focus Sash

        Choice Scizor is a better fit on the team, as the others said, since you already have tons of setup sweepers:
        -U-turn
        -Bullet Punch
        -Superpower
        -Pursuit/Quick Attack
        Nature: Adamant
        EVs: 248 HP/252 Atk/8 Spe
        Item: Choice Band
        Ability: Technician

          Thanks for all the advice guys.

          Just note this is hyper offense. Dual screens and 5 set up sweepers.
          They are all similar so they have similar counters, such as Skarmory or
          Gliscor. The idea is destroy their counters with a few sacrafices, allowing for
          the sweep by Dnite or Haxorus.

          And i dont need special attack, because with my team opponent special
          walls *cough* Blissey *cough* are deadweights.

            I thought hyper offense was deoxys-d + 5 sweepers lol
            anyway you don't necessarily need a special sweeper but what we were saying was haxorus and dragonite are essential doing the same thing and dragonite is far superior at doing it than haxorus is so why not replace haxorus with a different non-dragon type non dragon dancing sweeper Terrakion,infernape,gyarados(I know),mamoswine(nice for killing gliscor),breloom,weavile,landorus,lucario,conkeldurr even donphan could make a nice sweeper if you wanted him too azumarill/medicham lol
