    Okay, let's face it, this team needs some reworking.

    Why Fling on Infernape? While it's true that it hits Psychics hard, Fling is a one-time move. Mulch also doesn't do much damage when Flung. Infernape also has a wide movepool, so you should take advantage of it:
    -Overheat/Fire Blast
    -Close Combat
    -U-turn/Grass Knot
    -Stone Edge/Mach Punch
    Nature: Hasty/Naive
    EVs: 252 Atk/64 SAtk/192 Spe
    Item: Life Orb

    or
    -Nasty Plot
    -Fire Blast
    -Close Combat/Focus Blast
    -Vacuum Wave/Grass Knot
    Nature: Hasty/Naive
    EVs: 64 Atk/252 SAtk/192 Spe or 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb

    or
    -Swords Dance
    -Flare Blitz/Fire Punch
    -Close Combat
    -Stone Edge/Mach Punch
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Life Orb

    or
    -Fire Blast/Flamethrower
    -Close Combat
    -Grass Knot
    -Hidden Power (Ice)
    Nature: Hasty/Naive
    EVs: 64 Atk/252 SAtk/192 Spe
    Item: Life Orb

    or
    -Flare Blitz
    -Close Combat
    -Stone Edge
    -U-turn
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 SDef/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Band

    While Weavile is viable in OU, it's prone to priority from Scizor, who inflicts massive damage with Bullet Punch. Infernape can take care of Scizor. Also, Weavile's STAB moves are tied down to its much weaker Special Attack, so you have to give it all physical moves:
    -Pursuit
    -Ice Shard
    -Low Kick/Brick Break
    -Ice Punch/Night Slash
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 40 HP/252 Atk/216 Spe
    Item: Choice Band/Life Orb

    or
    -Swords Dance
    -Night Slash
    -Ice Punch/Ice Shard
    -Low Kick/Brick Break
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 40 HP/252 Atk/216 Spe
    Item: Life Orb

    IMO, Shiftry is better off in Sun teams, where it can abuse its Chlorophyll ability. Roserade makes a nice filler in its place; it hits harder than Shiftry and is slightly faster (outside of sun):
    -Toxic Spikes
    -Sleep Powder
    -Leaf Storm/Energy Ball/Grass Knot
    -Hidden Power (Ice/Fire)
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Focus Sash
    Ability: Natural Cure

    or
    -Spikes
    -Grass Knot/Energy Ball
    -Hidden Power (Fire/Ice)
    -Stun Spore/Rest/Leech Seed
    Nature: Calm
    EVs: 252 HP/120 Def/136 SDef
    Item: Leftovers/Black Sludge
    Ability: Natural Cure

    or
    -Leaf Storm/Energy Ball
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Hidden Power (Ice/Ground)
    -Sleep Powder/Spikes/Toxic Spikes
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Scarf (Sleep Powder only)/Life Orb
    Ability: Natural Cure

    Palkia is an Uber Pokemon, which means it can't be used in OU. Kingdra is a non-Uber alternative to it despite its lower offensive capabilities compared to Palkia, but it compensates with its good bulk:
    -Dragon Dance
    -Waterfall
    -Outrage
    -Rest
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 144 HP/160 Atk/40 SDef/164 Spe
    Item: Chesto Berry
    Ability: Swift Swim

    or
    -Substitute
    -Dragon Dance
    -Waterfall
    -Outrage
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
    Item: Leftovers/Lum Berry

    or
    -Dragon Dance
    -Waterfall
    -Outrage
    -Ice Beam/Hydro Pump
    Nature: Naughty/Naive
    EVs: 252 HP/32 SAtk/224 Spe
    Item: Life Orb

    or
    -Rest
    -Sleep Talk
    -Dragon Dance
    -Outrage
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252 HP/60 Atk/196 SDef
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Swift Swim

    If you want to use Palkia, make the most out of its huge offensive movepool. Heal Block doesn't cut it; while it's tempting to prevent opposing mons from using Rest, Recover, etc, Palkia is better off just smashing stuff instead:
    -Spacial Rend/Draco Meteor
    -Surf
    -Thunder
    -Outrage/Fire Blast/Draco Meteor
    Nature: Hasty/Timid
    EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Scarf

    or
    -Surf
    -Spacial Rend
    -Aqua Tail/Outrage
    -Thunder/Fire Blast
    Nature: Hasty
    EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Lustrous Orb/Life Orb/Haban Berry

    or
    -Aqua Tail
    -Outrage
    -Spacial Rend
    -Fire Blast/Thunder
    Nature: Hasty
    EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Lustrous Orb

    or
    -Surf/Hydro Pump
    -Spacial Rend
    -Draco Meteor
    -Thunder/Fire Blast
    Nature: Timid/Modest
    EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Specs

    or
    -Substitute
    -Focus Punch
    -Spacial Rend
    -Surf/Thunder/Fire Blast
    Nature: Hasty
    EVs: 100 Atk/156 SAtk/252 Spe
    Item: Expert Belt/Leftovers

    or
    -Aqua Tail
    -Outrage
    -Earthquake
    -Stone Edge/Dragon Claw
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
    Item: Choice Band

    or
    -Bulk Up
    -Aqua Tail
    -Outrage
    -Earthquake/Dragon Claw
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
    Item: Lustrous Orb
