    First up my personal favorite poke is Drifblim. Depending on what I'm versing I usually don't send him out first, I bring him in near the end and for some odd reason people say they are annoyed at him. After 1 powered up Acro Hinden's speed goes high, and is a speedy little sucker. Once near death spam destiny knot and hope for the best. The speed boost helps a lot with this.

    My usual first battle choice is Steelix. He goes out and just sets up rocks for me and takes so little damage. He really just there to get the hazards set up and to spam roar to get the opposing team to shuffle through them.

    My speedy death machine Rotom. I love this little bugger and will always, it's great typing and amazing speed is what really makes me like him. With his speed I can put him in a substitute faster than the other poke moves. He spams thunderbolt and shadow ball and uses pain split to sort of heal himself.
    Archy (Rotom) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Levitate
    Shiny: Yes
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature
    - Pain Split
    - Substitute
    - Thunderbolt
    - Shadow Ball
    My awesome finisher that I send out on weak or weakened teams is Phoenix. With high special attack and speed it rips apart unprepared teams and is my sweeper. I don't really like Hurricane that much but it get's the job done in the end.
    Phoenix (Moltres) @ Life Orb
    Trait: Pressure
    Shiny: Yes
    EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Timid Nature
    - Fire Blast
    - Hurricane
    - Roost
    - Substitute
    When Steelix is out or is weak to the lead Smeargle comes out. He is paired with Glyph and he spores the opponent before they can move then spams Quiver dance and when the time is right he uses Baton Pass to Glyph and he uses stored power and just sweeps like a mofo for half the team.
    Picaso (Smeargle) (M) @ Focus Sash
    Trait: Own Tempo
    EVs: 4 Atk / 252 HP / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature
    - Spore
    - Quiver Dance
    - Baton Pass
    - Substitute
    Last but not least we have Glyph. He is here to be a secondary sweeper incase Moltres goes down somehow. Smeargle switches into him and he spams stored power until he dies. He passes his burns along like the flu. And then pecks off weaklings, and heals when the time is right.
    Glyph (Sigilyph) (M) @ Flame Orb
    Trait: Magic Guard
    Shiny: Yes
    EVs: 252 HP / 16 Def / 240 Spd
    Timid Nature
    - Cosmic Power
    - Roost
    - Psycho Shift
    - Stored Power

    It may not be the best but I like it and it wins

    Pretty nice team. However, before I give advice about your team, here's some advice on your RTM layout; have your pokemon and build first, then put the description under it. Also, space between your pokemon. It just makes it easier to read.

    Alright, now about the team, I like the idea behind giving Sigilyph Quiver Dance boosts, but if your opponent has a dark type, it'll completely wall it due to you only having Stored Power as its only attacking move. I suggest replacing Cosmic Power with Air Slash as you don't need the extra boosts since you already have Quiver Dance.
