Hey guys. This is my first OU team I ever made and wanted to see what you guys think. I am prepared to make alot of changes so just tell me what you think, all suggestions are good, and please help me make my team even better. thanks guys.

Infernape @ Focus Sash
EVs: 64 Atk / 252 SpA / 192 Spe
Hasty Nature (+Speed , -Defense)
Stealth Rock
Hidden Power (Ice)
Fire Blast
Close Combat
This is my lead pokemon. Originally it was going to be Azelf but then found out that I cant get it in heartgold but w/e because I think Infernape makes a pretty good lead due to his speed which is at 330. I could definatly replace him tho with a new lead and use him somewhere else or can him. tell me what you think.

Gengar @ Life Orb
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature (+Speed , -Attack)
Focus Punch
Shadow Ball
I plan on using Gengar as a Revenge Killer.

Gyarados @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
Dragon Dance
Stone Edge
Gyarados is going to be used as my Physical Sweeper

Lucario @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
Swords Dance
Close Combat
Extreme Speed

Mamoswine @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly/Adamant (Not sure which one i want still debating)
Ice Shard
Stone Edge

Tyranitar @ Choice Band
EVs: 160 HP / 252 Atk / 96 Spe
Adamant Nature
Stone Edge
Aqua Tail

Still debating over Tyranitar because I kinda just threw it in there to fill the extra spot.

Well, this is the team I made and please help me improve it. I'd love to hear all your suggestions and Thank you.

Lead Ape needs Fake Out or else it loses to most Focus Sash leads.

I think you mean Focus Blast on Gengar, lol :x

I would also consider putting a Scarf on Tyranitar, otherwise offensive Starmie can cause some very big problems for you. Not to mention the Band set is pretty outdated.

Otherwise, not a terrible team.

U r right i did mean focus blast thanks for the input. And i recently took out tyranitar and put in a Wish Vaporeon. I love it. Ive won 3/4 times on shoddy so far with this team so pretty excited to make it on the real heartgold game. Does Fake out automatically flinch the target? if so thats a great move

Fake Out only flinches if you use it on the first turn your user is out. After that, it can't be used again until you switch out and in again.

That infernape lead looks pretty solid, though like you said Azleaf would probably be better
