ok so i lead off with zapdos because hes bulky even w/out evs and can hit hard w/ stab thunderbolt and can roost off damage and counters hippo leads with hp grass and can also help counter swampert later

kingdra is a great sweeper from both sides.. i play him like sd luc switch into someone who will run away and rain dance doubling his speed and powering up both waterfall and hydropump allowing him to sweep even bulky waters after using draco meteor

snorlax im using the curselax set just for another possible sweep. come in on a known special attacker and set up w/ one or two curses and sweep away.. when i get low i selfdestruct or just blow up when i predict a stong physical attacker w/ fighting moves

scizor pretty much a revenge killer and late game sweeper bullet punch with technician stab and band hits real hard and ohkos gengar who can hurt lax with focus blast and makes a dent in anything that resists it. superpower ohkos bliss and lax and hits hard for super effective dmg u-turn is to take care of cresselia and to run away from a threat that might switch in, pursuit is for taking out pkmn who ik will run but i will rarely get a use outa it its just there as a filler mainly

skarmory pretty much the typical set switch in to a physical attacker SR on the switch out and start phasing if need be or whirlwind away a physical attacker that just buffed themselves.. i gotta watch out for sd luc tho

blaziken ok ik everyone says hes just a crappy infernape but he has higher att and spatt and with scarf it wont make much difference and hes my revenge killer sky uppercut for rock types and heatran and ursurang overheat for steals and grass and overheat instead of flamethrower for the added power and i usually hit and run with scarfkin because once my opponent knows the locked move its real easy to counter thunderpunch for dos and hp ice for those pesky dragons most important of all specsmence

I think your skarmory should be first because. It knows Stealth Rock. if anything bad comes it can use whirwind. Your Blazekin should know Flamethrower instead of Overheat because it lowers your Sp. Atc. Your other pokemon look pretty good. Some other guys will find problems.

I can see that you want Lonely on Kingdra to power up Waterfall, but Kingdra, I think, works best as either strictly physical or strictly special, as the only point of the mixed sweeper is to kill Blissey. While that's important, you do have both Blaziken and Scizor to beat the living hell out of her; not to mention the fact that Scizor can scout whatever comes in to save Blissey and her pathetic mass of blubber she calls a body with U-Turn, opening up a good opportunity for Blaziken to revenge kill if possible.

Speaking of Blaziken, I'm curious as to what happened to his EVs. I'll just assume it's the Smogon standard and call it good. I understand you may want to use Sky Uppercut repeatedly, but choiced revenge killers never get a break, which means that Superpower, being the Close Combat of revenge killers, is much better than Sky Uppercut, as he'll likely be switching out after every time he attacks. Moreover, the (more)ubiquitous Scarf Dugtrio is going to destroy Blaziken if he happens to be on the opposing team when Blaziken kills something. It's not that common, but it's a bastard if your revenge killer isn't Flygon nor can fly. Thankfully, I think Snorlax can aptly compensate for that absence if Blaziken dies. Regardless, I'd still recommend something that flies, and better yet, is faster than Blaziken. My best example is Salamence, but that's probably because I use it.

There's no glaring weakness on the team (except, you know, Dragon Dance Salamence with Fire Fang/Fire Blast), but generally, aside from Skarmory and Snorlax a little bit, you have no tanks, and thus Infernape foils pretty much your whole team aside from Blaziken, and Blaziken still takes harsh damage from his attacks, and mind you, there's a ton of Pokemon that can counter Blaziken in turn. I like Blaziken, but honestly, he doesn't work that well here, and a different revenge killer could turn your entire game around when you really need it. It's a pretty good team, but the lack of sufficient defenses and defensive typing hurts you a little too much.

Leading a team using Zapdos, it's a nice choice, since he has nice offensive stats and a average speed. Running Choice Scarf on him isn't a bad idea, abusing of U-Turn for common leaders like Azelf and Gengar and throw the baton for Snorlax.
You could put Hidden Power Ice to counter Salamence and Flygon, since your team needs a counter for these dragons. Also, with some EV on speed, you can outspeed Salamence even after a Dragon Dance, but be careful with Yache Berry.

Running Rain Dance on this Kingdra is not beneficial for the other members of the team, like Blaziken and Zapdos (Heat Wave).
You could use the Standard Dragon Dancer set or the Sleep Talker Kingdra, covering some threats like Heatran, Vaporeon, Blissey and Charizard.

selfdestruct / REST

Standard Curselax. Rest is necessary on this set, because Snolax is the only Special Wall in your team, and can give you some troubles not using it.
Also, you can use Chesto Berry for cause a little surprise for your opponent.

CB Scizor it's very powerful and give for your team the coverage for Celebi and Tyranitar (be careful with Fire Punch). Be sure your opponent not have a Magnezone before start Bullet Punch.

Another weakness for Magnezone. You could change this for Swampert, since he counter Magnezone really well and can set up Stealth Rock. Also, Swampert give coverage for the Rotom's new forms, and Skarmory fails on this.

Choice Scarf Blaziken is a weaker version of ScarfApe. Doesn't run really well like the monkey, but can give a good damage for Gyarados and friends.
Put Hidden Power Grass if the Zapdos is using Ice.
