Smeargle (Jolly/Focus Sash) Own tempo
252 Spe 155 Def 106 SpD
Spider web
Batton pass

The lead Will cover most pokemon, because of his speed he should get spore and Induce sleep on the foes lead then proceed to spider web to trap the foe. From there use ingrain or batton pass to setup a sweep.
Should the opponennt get an attack off first then the focus sash will save Smeargle.

Scizor (Adamant/Leftovers) Technician
252 Att 250 Hp 8 SpD
Swords Dance
Bullet punch
Brick break
Bug bite

Physical sweeper With the opponent asleep and trapped Scizor can proceed to set up with SD and take out anything.

Gyarados (Adamant/Leftover) Intimidate
252 Atk 6 Def 252 Spe
Dragon dance
Stone edge

Physical Sweeper If the opponents lead is a fire type then i will baton pass to Gyarados instead of scizor.DD until opponent wakes then sweep with Gyaras monster attack.

Tyranitar (Jolly/Choice Scarf) Sand stream
252 Att 252 Spd 6 Hp
Stone edge

Physical sweeper Tyranitar is there for taking out alot of popular sweepers Heatran, TTar Gyarados as well as some walls (Blissey).

Heatran (Naïve/Life orb) Flash fire
252 SpA 252 Spe 6 SpD
Hiddenpower grass

Special sweeper Heatran is for Gyarados coverage and CB Scizors and is one of the best Special attackers in UU.

Celebi (Bold/Leftovers) Natural cure
252Hp 220 Def 38 SpD
Grass knot
Heal bell
Hidden power ice

Celebi is to heal really but mostly filler. I was thinking of putting in a Nasty plot Togekiss
with roost, air slash and either Flamethrower or Aura sphere.

I'm no expert and although i've played Pokemon since 1998 i've not played any competitive battles i've mainly just beat the game and breeding for good EV/IV's for trades. I'm designing this team for Shoddy to eventually use on wifi after lots of breeding. Where could the team improve? Help me to see flaws i can't, or to figure out what I am doing right and build on it

Thanks for your time i appreciate the input
If you need any pokemon just ask and we can trade, i have shinies, Events and EV'd Pokes. To many to list

Okay, let's see here.

Holy crap, you have such a huge MixApe weak it's not even funny! Every single Pokemon on your team is OHKOed by either Close Combat or Flamethrower/Fire Blast while Gyarados is 2HKO by Grass Knot after Stealth Rock damage.

Let's begin with Smeargle:

Decent lead, but it should NEVER be using a Baton Pass set when it's a lead because it's nearly impossible to set up against other common leads.

Aerodactyl: Stops you with Taunt
Azelf: Stops you with Taunt
Infernape: Fake Out to break Sash, then finishes you off with Close Combat
Jirachi: Stops you with Trick
Machamp: Always carries Lum Berry. Will Dynamicpunch and then finish you off with Bullet Punch.
Metagross: Often carries Lum Berry. Will Meteor Mash/Earthquake and then finish you off with Bullet Punch.
Ninjask: Sets up Substitute to stop Spider Web/Spore and gets a free chance to Swords Dance.
Roserade: Faster and puts you to sleep.

In fact, the only lead you can actually set up against is Swampert, but even then, the Swampert user will most likely switch after being put to Sleep.

If you really want to use a Smeargle lead, this set is the way to go:

Smeargle @Focus Sash
4 HP / 252 Def / 252 Spd

-Stealth Rock

On Heatran, use Fire Blast over Flamethrower. The increase in power outweighs the decrease in accuracy.
Why are you using a Naive nature when you have no physical attacks? Use Timid please.

On Celebi, use HP Fire over HP Ice. Celebi is a magnet for Steel types like Scizor.

Next, cover your Infernape weakness. Starmie can work over Gyarados.

Starmie @Life Orb
Timid Nature
Natural Cure
4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

- Surf
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
- Rapid Spin/Recover
