    Azelf @ Light Clay
    Jolly nature
    Ability : Levitate
    252 Speed / 252 Attack / 6 HP
    -Reflect
    -Light Screen
    -Explosion
    -Stealth Rock
    Fast Dual Screen lead with Stealth Rocks and Explosion. Must be aware of Gengars and Rotoms, to avoid exploding for nothing.

    Dragonite @ Life Orb
    Jolly Nature
    Ability : Inner Focus
    252 Atk / 252 Speed / 6 HP
    -Outrage
    -Earthquake
    -Fire Punch
    -Dragon Dance
    Well, I was tired of using GyaraDDos, so I started using DDragonite. It has impressive power, and Fire Punch / Earthquake deals super effective damage to all Steel-types in the OU metagame.
    Outrage, with its huge BP, takes charge of the rest.

    Metagross @ Life Orb
    Adamant Nature
    Ability : Clear Body
    252 Attack / 196 Speed / 60 HP
    -Earthquake
    -Meteor Mash
    -ThunderPunch
    -Agility
    Agiligross set, really effective, good bulk. Really a dangerous pokemon.

    Tyranitar @ Lum Berry
    Jolly Nature
    Ability : Sand Stream
    252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP
    -Dragon Dance
    -Stone Edge
    -Crunch
    -Earthquake
    Dragon Dance Tyranitar is awesome. It has huge defenses, so it can resist neutral hits pretty well, okay speed, and awesome attack.

    Lucario @ Life Orb
    Adamant Nature
    Ability : Inner Focus
    252 Attack / 252 Speed / 6 HP
    -Close Combat
    -Extremespeed
    -Crunch
    -Swords Dance
    Powerful here, with screens it may get more than 1 Swords Dance, and sweep the entire ennemy team.

    Scizor @ Life Orb
    Adamant Nature
    Ability : Technician
    252 Attack / 252 HP / 6 Defense
    -Bullet Punch
    -Bug Bite
    -Brick Break
    -Swords Dance
    Swords Dance Scizor, probably the most destructive priority user of every metagame, outside Extreme Killer Arceus. Bug Bite is good STAB, Bullet Punch is a standard, and Brick Break is for coverage. I prefer Brick Break over Superpower, because versus other Scizors, it will win due to the Defense drop Superpower means.

    Please, I would like some help to improve that team. Thanks :)

    Problem: Rotom-A
    Why: Let's start with no electric resist. A choice scarf Rotom can outspeed your entire team and deal some damage with unresisted STAB.
    Solution: Tyranitar over Aggron.
    Reason: While not exactly solving your Rotom problem, Ttar can Pursuit or Crunch Rotom to kill it. While a choiced Ttar might be best, DDtar can set up. You can decide upon a set for yourself.

    This isn't Hyper Offense, Hyper Offense means choice items are a no-no, and a DS Lead must be used if it's physical.

    That's why i suggest using Uxie or Azelf as your lead.

    Uxie @ Light Clay
    252 HP / 4 HP / 252 Spe
    Jolly
    - Light Screen
    - Reflect
    - Taunt / U-Turn
    - Stealth Rock

    Now that you have a dual screen, it's time to replace Empoleon and Gengar with AgiliGross.

    Metagross @ Life Orb
    60 HP / 252 Atk / 196 Spe
    Adamant
    - Agility
    - Meteor Mash
    - Earthquake
    - ThunderPunch

    ThunderPunch is necessary to hit Gyarados who otherwise walls this set.

    Now for the empty spot in your team, why don't you try out Chesto Rest Kingdra ?

    Kingdra @ Chesto Berry
    144 HP / 160 Atk / 40 SpD / 164 Spe
    Adamant
    - Dragon Dance
    - Outrage
    - Waterfall
    - Rest

    This set has potential to set-up 6 Dragon Dances without any trouble, setting up on walls like Blissey, Skarmory or Suicune is something not all sweepers can do. Being able to also recover 100% health is huge, while at the same time curing any status. This is the true meaning of "sweep."
