      Please include EV stats, Natures, and items next time, so that we can have a more thorough review.

      Umm... In the Ubers tier, I wouldn't think about having any of these Pokemon, apart from Rayquaza. If you really want to do well with your three starter Pokemon in the team, along with Absol and Aggron, I'd recommend the OU tier, but Rayquaza is not permitted in this case. As for how the team looks defensively without Rayquaza nothing resists Fighting, so a Ghost type is recommended. Gengar is a good choice as its added Poison typing adds more resistances. I also notice that there are no status moves at all in your team.

      I'll give a more detailed review if you can address these concerns.

        Sceptile holds a Miracle Seed, Blaziken holds Charcoal, Swampert holds Mystic Water, Aggron holds Amulet Coin, Absol holds Red Card and SkyHigh holds Dragon Fang, and I don't know my Stats, but Sceptile has a high Sp.Attack and Speed. And Sceptile and Blaziken knows Aerial Ace to battle. And I don't need status moves 'cause I go Offensive.

        Most of your Pokemon are HORRIBLE in Ubers. Sceptile is terrible because of its bad defenses and average Special Attack by Uber standards. Swampert, while bulky, can't hit the opponent too hard with its special moves. Aggron's defensive typing is downright terrible in Ubers because of all the Water, Fighting and Ground moves scattered about in Ubers. Absol is too defensively frail and slow to be in Ubers, and not even Sucker Punch can save it. Only Blaziken and Rayquaza see use in there. Really, there's no need to go all-out offensive in Ubers; a lot of Uber teams use status moves to gain the upper hand. Your Pokemon won't like being put to sleep by Darkrai's Dark Void, being paralyzed by Kyogre's/Groudon's Thunder Wave or being poisoned by Lugia's Toxic for instance. You won't be getting anywhere with just Hoenn Pokemon; you need Pokemon from other regions too. If any of my suggestions don't suit this team, I can make a new post to accommodate it.

        For starters, Blaziken should use Speed Boost, and Speed Boost ONLY. That's what makes it so good in the Uber environment. It also has little use for Aerial Ace, as a super effective unSTABed Aerial Ace does less than a neutral STAB Flare Blitz/Hi Jump Kick:
        -Swords Dance
        -Flare Blitz
        -Hi Jump Kick
        -Protect
        Nature: Adamant/Jolly
        EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe

        Rayquaza's movepool is very good and it certainly has the offensive stats to take advantage of it. But it has better coverage moves than Fly and Thunderbolt. Fly gives your opponent a free switch-in:
        -Dragon Dance
        -Outrage
        -Earthquake
        -Overheat
        Nature: Naive
        EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
        Item: Life Orb

        or
        -Draco Meteor
        -Fire Blast/V-Create
        -ExtremeSpeed
        -Outrage/Dragon Tail
        Nature: Naive/Hasty
        EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
        Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

        or
        -Dragon Dance
        -Outrage
        -Draco Meteor
        -Earthquake/Fire Blast
        Nature: Mild/Rash
        EVs: 40 Atk/252 SAtk/216 Spe
        Item: Life Orb

        or
        -Swords Dance
        -Outrage
        -ExtremeSpeed
        -V-Create
        Nature: Jolly/Adamant
        EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
        Item: Life Orb

        or
        -Outrage
        -V-Create
        -Draco Meteor
        -ExtremeSpeed/Earthquake
        Nature: Hasty/Naive
        EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
        Item: Choice Scarf

        or
        -Outrage
        -ExtremeSpeed
        -V-Create
        -Earthquake
        Nature: Adamant/Jolly
        EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
        Item: Choice Band

        Now, I'll replace the rest of your Pokemon to match up with Uber standards:

        Absol for Darkai (because it hits faster and harder, and has Dark Void to give your team an easier time):
        -Dark Void

        -Substitute/Nasty Plot

        Item: Leftovers/Life Orb

        Aggron for Dialga (sure, Dialga shares 2 of Aggron's weaknesses, but it can take them better):

        Item: Choice Specs/Choice Scarf

        Swampert for Palkia (because Palkia hits faster and harder than Swampert can):
        -Surf
        -Spacial Rend/Draco Meteor
        -Thunder
        -Fire Blast/Outrage/Draco Meteor
        Nature: Timid/Hasty
        EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe

          The reason why I go with Hoenn us because it helps a lot in battle and I also switch in Kyogre and Groudon for a change. In addition my Sceptile beat my Friend's Infernape and Swampert beat my Friend's Torterra, also, Blaziken beat my friend's Palkia. Sceptile also beat Darkrai with the first Darkrai move set you told me. And my team is cool. AND I HATE SHAYMIN!!!!!! SCEPTILE'S BETTER!!!

            In my opinion I don't mean to be rude but I think that you have no experience in competitive battling (in other words battling online). To prove to the world that your team is good why not try your team out in one of our Battle Simulators? http://pokemonshowdown.com/ is one of our most popular Pokemon battling sites. It's highly doubtful that you will win with this current team, especially in ubers. Also, some of the Pokemon that you don't like may have better qualities than some of your favorite Pokemon, for example, Shaymin has better bulk than Sceptile does.
