      Might wanna give Ninetails the moveset of Fire Blast, Hypnosis, Calm Mind, and one of the HP types such as Ice or Rock for example. Solarbeam would be okay if it wasn't just screaming for Tyranitar or Politoed to switch in now.

      For Metagross try a Choiced set with the moves Trick, Meteor Mash, Earthquake, and something along the lines of Bullet Punch or Explosion for a 4th move.

      Haxorus should be Jolly or Adamant btw depending if you want more speed or more power, either one is fine regardless. It would also help if you posted the moveset for it lol.

      Might wanna give Swampert the moveset of Stealth Rock, Earthquake, Roar, and Ice Beam with something along the lines of a Relaxed nature so it can be more of a team player. And for Gengar I'd give it a Life Orb so it can hit just a wee harder now.

      That and for Skarmory I'd get rid of Stealth Rock for either Whirlwind or Taunt now, depends if you need to phaze something out or to stop premature entry hazards more.

      Sorry for not being very descriptive but I hope this helps regardless.

      Just saying, it's not important to say the IVs in the Competitive Team Help forum.

      Ninetales isn't as effective as the other weather starters because of its Stealth Rock weakness and low Defense, so winning weather wars is very important:
      -Flamethrower
      -Will-o-Wisp
      -Sunny Day
      -Roar/Hypnosis/Substitute
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 HP/120 Def/136 SDef
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Drought

      or
      -Sunny Day
      -Fire Blast
      -SolarBeam
      -Nasty Plot/Hidden Power (Ice)/Will-o-Wisp
      Nature: Timid/Modest
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Leftovers/Air Balloon
      Ability: Drought

      Since this is a Sun team, Metagross isn't a good fit, IMO, since the sun increases its susceptibility to Fire moves. And you need a Sun abuser or two; Heatran or Volcarona are just a couple examples.

      Heatran:
      -Fire Blast
      -Earth Power
      -Hidden Power (Grass/Ice)
      -Stealth Rock/Taunt/Toxic
      Nature: Timid/Modest
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Life Orb/Air Balloon

      or
      -Lava Plume
      -Toxic
      -Protect
      -Earth Power/Stealth Rock/Roar
      Nature: Calm
      EVs: 248 HP/252 SDef/8 Spe
      Item: Leftovers

      or
      -Sunny Day
      -Magma Storm
      -SolarBeam
      -Earth Power/Hidden Power (Ice)
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Life Orb/Air Balloon

      or
      -Fire Blast
      -Earth Power
      -Hidden Power (Ice)/Dragon Pulse
      -Overheat/Flamethrower
      Nature: Timid/Modest
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Scarf

      or
      -Substitute
      -Fire Blast
      -Earth Power/Hidden Power (Ice)
      -Toxic/Will-o-Wisp
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Leftovers

      or
      -Fire Blast/Overheat
      -Earth Power
      -Dragon Pulse/Hidden Power (Ice)
      -Hidden Power (Grass)/Flamethrower
      Nature: Modest/Timid
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Specs

      Volcarona:
      -Quiver Dance
      -Bug Buzz
      -Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
      -Hidden Power (Ground)/Giga Drain
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Life Orb/Lum Berry

      or
      -Quiver Dance
      -Fiery Dance/Fire Blast
      -Bug Buzz
      -Roost/Morning Sun
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 HP/240 Def/16 Spe
      Item: Leftovers

      or
      -Quiver Dance
      -Fire Blast/Fiery Dance
      -Bug Buzz
      -Rest
      Nature: Modest
      EVs: 160 HP/236 SAtk/112 Spe
      Item: Chesto Berry

      And as Xulek mentioned, never, ever, ever, ever, ever use Timid on Haxorus. You're just wasting away its massive Attack if you do that:
      -Swords Dance
      -Outrage
      -Superpower/Low Kick
      -Substitute/Earthquake
      Nature: Adamant
      EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
      Item: Fighting Gem/Life Orb/Lum Berry
      Ability: Mold Breaker


      or
      -Outrage
      -Earthquake
      -Superpower
      -Dragon Claw/Dual Chop
      Nature: Adamant/Jolly
      EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Band
      Ability: Mold Breaker

      or
      -Dragon Dance
      -Swords Dance
      -Outrage
      -Low Kick/Earthquake
      Nature: Adamant/Jolly
      EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
      Item: Lum Berry/Draco Plate
      Ability: Mold Breaker

      or
      -Dragon Dance
      -Outrage
      -Earthquake
      -Low Kick/Taunt/Dragon Claw/Dual Chop
      Nature: Adamant/Jolly
      EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
      Item: Lum Berry/Yache Berry
      Ability: Mold Breaker

      Other Dragons to consider are Dragonite, Salamence and Hydreigon because they have access to Fire moves to take advantage of Sun.:

      Dragonite:
      -Dragon Dance
      -Outrage/Dragon Claw
      -Fire Punch
      -Earthquake/ExtremeSpeed/Roost
      Nature: Adamant/Jolly
      EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
      Item: Leftovers/Lum Berry
      Ability: Multiscale

      or
      -Outrage
      -ExtremeSpeed
      -Fire Punch
      -Earthquake/Superpower
      Nature: Adamant
      EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Band
      Ability: Multiscale

      or
      -Draco Meteor
      -Fire Blast/Flamethrower
      -Thunder Wave
      -Roost
      Nature: Modest
      EVs: 252 HP/252 SAtk/4 SDef
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Multiscale

      Salamence:
      -Outrage
      -Dragon Claw
      -Earthquake
      -Fire Blast
      Nature: Naive
      EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Scarf
      Ability: Moxie

      or
      -Dragon Dance
      -Outrage/Dragon Claw
      -Earthquake
      -Fire Blast
      Nature: Naive
      EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Lum Berry/Yache Berry/Life Orb

      or
      -Outrage
      -Draco Meteor
      -Fire Blast
      -Earthquake
      Nature: Naive
      EVs: 64 Atk/252 SAtk/192 Spe
      Item: Life Orb

      Hydreigon:
      -Draco Meteor
      -Fire Blast
      -Superpower
      -Earthquake/Earth Power/Dark Pulse/Roost
      Nature: Rash/Mild
      EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Expert Belt/Life Orb

      or
      -Substitute
      -Dragon Pulse
      -Focus Blast
      -Fire Blast/Roost
      Nature: Modest
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

      or
      -Draco Meteor
      -Fire Blast
      -Focus Blast
      -U-turn/Dark Pulse
      Nature: Modest
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Choice Specs

      Given that Sun teams are susceptible to entry hazards, you need a way to control them. Donphan or Espeon are your best bets here; either can go over Swampert, since its Water STAB is weakened in sun. Donphan replaces Skarmory, while Espeon goes over Swampert:

      Donphan:
      -Earthquake
      -Rapid Spin
      -Stealth Rock/Head Smash/Stone Edge
      -Ice Shard
      Nature: Adamant
      EVs: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Spe
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Sturdy

      Espeon:
      -Reflect
      -Light Screen
      -Psychic/Psyshock
      -Hidden Power (Fire)/Baton Pass
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 HP/4 Def/252 Spe
      Item: Light Clay
      Ability: Magic Bounce

      or
      -Calm Mind
      -Stored Power
      -Hidden Power (Fighting/Fire)
      -Baton Pass
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 252 HP/4 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Leftovers
      Ability: Magic Bounce

      I'm not sure why Gengar is on the team, but it needs some changes:
      -Substitute
      -Shadow Ball
      -Focus Blast
      -Disable/Thunderbolt/Hidden Power (Fire)/Pain Split
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Black Sludge/Life Orb

      or
      -Shadow Ball
      -Focus Blast
      -Hidden Power (Fire)
      -Protect/Substitute
      Nature: Timid
      EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
      Item: Life Orb/Black Sludge
