So... Here's what I'm working with...
This team Idea came to me when I was Faladran and saw the RegiBro Core set up. I saw that I could use the two of them because they have good synergy and built around them and this is the end result. The purpose of this team is to wear the enemy down with Toxic Spikes, SR and the RegiBro combo. That is either Zapdos' or Arcanines job.
@ Focus Sash
The plan with Roserade is to put the opponent to sleep. Force the switch or stay in and get a layer of Toxic Spikes up. IF they switch and mange to out speed me I have the sash so I can get the Toxic Poison on the other team which could wear them down quite a bit. Getting in a HP Fire or Leaf Storm is just an added bonus if I can. :D
Overall in 5th Gen Arcanine has pretty good coverage with CC and Wild Charge. Arcanine is supposed to be a late game sweeper and clean up the rest of the pokes that have been worn down by Toxic Spikes, SR and and other Pokes. Arcanine doesnt have a problem with
Chansey either in UU which is a PAIN!!
Zapdos is just a Scarfed revenge killer. I had the RegiBro core and Fire Water Grass so I just Slapped on Zapdos. So far from what I have been testing Zapdos has been doing fairly well. Although if there are better recommendations I will switch it.
As I said before Registeel is part of the RegiBro Core to this team. S-Toss for the secure 100 damage is always nice to wear things down. T-Wave for any of the flyers that don't get effected by Toxic Spikes. Stealth Rock, again, to wear the incoming pokes down. Iron head for Mismagius so I'm not completely walled by it. Flinch Parahaxing is another positive to Registeel.
Registeel can wall most Special Attackers in UU with it's high SpD.
The "Bro" in RegiBro. Registeels opposite brother packing Def and Special Attacks. If I can Calm Mind up 1 or 2 times SlowBro is unstoppable!(Besides its Speed :P) Slack off for the health regen. CM to set up. Scalad and Phsyshock because they are special moves and STAB. SlowBro is my Def TANK on this team.
Hitmontop is basically my support on this team. He can spin away rocks for Arcanine and Zapdos and hit back with CC, Stone Edge or Sucker. His bulk also lets him take some big hits and OHKO them. I dont think he is NECESSARY, but he is a good addition. He can revenge kill with Sucker Punch with is also handy.
CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IS ALLOWED! PLEASE LEAVE SUGGESTIONS ALSO!!!!

Wow this is a good team with near perfect synergy. I don't believe your team needs stealth rock so can I suggest curse over SR this will allow you to survive any people that try to predict your switch to bro (a physical electric/dark attack?) this also allows iron head to deal more damage which will paraflinch pokemon quicker.
What are your abilities or as bro with regenerate is hard to stop.

Nope, above poster, despite the fact that Rocks aren't needed as much in 5th gen as in 4th, especially in lower tiers, it's till necessary for things like Scyther and getting some much needed KOs, turning 3HKOs into 2HKOs etc. Besides, curse Registeel would have to have a new set completly based around it, plus his registeel is meant for tanking, paralysing, and killing things with no defense (missy). Therefore, keep the Registeel set OP.
Your Pokemon lack abilities it seems. Plus, it's scald (pronounced sc-o-ld), not scalad on Slow.
You'll also want to add in the following things in your descriptions (They are currently lacking so this may get locked, and it would make it easier for raters like myself to give a proper rate); Why you chose that Pokemon, what it does for the team, why you chose the moves and their purpose (in depth, not just "CM to set up... I chose it because it's STAB" etc), same for any 'un-standard' Items, EVs and natures. You could also put in some synergy like this;
Flying --> Registeel, Zapdos
Psychic --> Registeel, Slowbro
Hope I helped,
Who knows when I'll be back...
