      First off, Ninjask needs an item over Choice Scarf clearly since it locks you into a single move which is really not good for something like Ninjask now. Focus Sash or Leftovers should do the trick while changing the nature to Impish and giving it this moveset.

      Protect
      Baton Pass
      Swords Dance
      X-Scissor (To prevent being Taunt bait.)

      Cloyster should also have a Naive nature along with a Life Orb with this moveset. It's also a monster with the Skill Link ability.

      Shell Smash
      Icicle Spear
      Rock Blast
      Surf/Hydro Pump

      And for Landorus I'd replace Sludge Wave and Psychic with HP Ice and Stone Edge. A Naive nature also helps making it faster.

      Sorry the post was so small but I hope it helps, gl dude.

        For one, Shedinja needs loads of team support to work, ie Rapid Spin support to keep hazards off the field because it dies in a single switch in when Stealth Rock is on the field. The widespread use of sandstorm and hazards makes Shedinja nigh unusable in OU. Scizor should see some use:
        -U-turn
        -Bullet Punch
        -Superpower
        -Pursuit/Quick Attack
        Nature: Adamant
        EVs: 248 HP/252 Atk/8 Spe
        Item: Choice Band
        Ability: Technican

        Or
        -Swords Dance
        -Bullet Punch
        -Bug Bite
        -Superpower/Brick Break
        Nature: Adamant
        EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
        Item: Life Orb
        Ability: Technician

        Or
        -Swords Dance
        -Bullet Punch
        -Superpower/Bug Bite
        -Roost
        Nature: Adamant
        EVs: 252 HP/40 Atk/216 SDef
        Item: Leftovers
        Ability: Technician

        White Herb or Focus Sash are also worth considering on Cloyster, the former for negating the defensive drops of Shell Smash and the latter for ensuring that Shell Smash is executed.

        Gentle nature = bad. It doesn't do anything competitively useful. Use Gengar as an offensive Ghost:
        -Shadow Ball
        -Focus Blast
        -Substitute
        -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)
        -Substitute/Protect
        Nature: Timid
        EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
        Item: Black Sludge/Life Orb

        Or use Sableye or Jellicent as defensive Ghosts:

        Sableye:
        -Taunt
        -Will-o-Wisp
        -Recover
        -Night Shade/Foul Play
        Nature: Careful/Calm
        EVs: 252 HP/120 Def/136 SDef
        Item: Leftovers
        Ability: Prankster

        Jellicent:
        -Scald/Surf
        -Will-o-Wisp/Toxic
        -Recover
        -Taunt
        Nature: Bold
        EVs: 248 HP/216 Def/44 Spe
        Item: Leftovers

        Or
        -Scald/Surf
        -Will-o-Wisp/Toxic
        -Recover
        -Shadow Ball/Ice Beam
        Nature: Calm
        EVs: 252 HP/36 Def/220 SDef
        Item: Leftovers
        Ability: Water Absorb

        Or
        -Water Spout
        -Hydro Pump/Surf/Scald
        -Shadow Ball
        -Ice Beam/Giga Drain
        Nature: Modest
        EVs: 172 HP/252 SAtk/84 Spe
        Item: Choice Specs
        Ability: Water Absorb

        Ferrothorn is a better alternative over Weezing because of its typing and resistances:
        -Spikes/Stealth Rock
        -Leech Seed
        -Power Whip
        -Gyro Ball/Thunder Wave/Protect
        Nature: Relaxed
        EVs: 252 HP/88 Def/168 SDef
        Item: Leftovers

        Even though Gallade is my favorite Pokémon, I hate to say that it doesn't see much use in OU because base 80 Speed is just too average for a sweeper. Lucario should suffice, since its typing compensates for its low defenses:
        -Swords Dance
        -Close Combat
        -ExtremeSpeed
        -Crunch/Ice Punch/Bullet Punch
        Nature: Adamant/Jolly
        EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
        Item: Life Orb

          Life Orb is the preferred item if Gengar is using Pain Split because when Gengar's HP gets too low because of Sub and LO recoil, Pain Split can potentially restore a lot of HP for Gengar.

          Also, your current Scizor set should use Choice Band because it's meant to scout. Use Pursuit or Quick Attack over Bug Bite, since they have their utility.

          Much like Gengar, Landorus-T likes having Life Orb to help it sweep better. Also, a Naive nature is somewhat moot when you have Rock Polish so Naughty or Adamant is generally better.
