    You have way to many Choice Banders, and two of them do better (usually) without it. Gengar would be much better for this team as a special attacker, or a mixed one. Zapdos wants Thunderbolt to give it a 100% Accuracy move. This team is way to physical based, and gets walled by Skarmory very easy, wth Zapdos being the only Poke that can hit it with a Special Attack. If you are planning to make a comeback with Snorlax, it needs Shadow Ball, or else it is walled to hell by Gengar. Heracross DOES NOT want Rest, he is holding a Choice Band, and Choice Band Rest is not the best Idea. Get a Special Attack. You also have no PHazer, which is also a big problem.

    Gather 4 of heracross's EVs and put them somewhere.

    Thunderbolt over explosion on Gengar, since Metagross already explodes, and you do need to maim skarmory more. I really do think Gengar should be more special oriented anyways, as your Zapdos is already a nice Choice-Banded surprise, while Gengar doesn't do nearly as much damage with physical. It'd be nice for him to have a way to hurt Weezing more too, as right now Weezing can go around burning everyone (haze snorlax's curses too) and there's not much you can do about it.

    Consider facade over something on Heracross so you can punish Weezing when it burns you.

    Since skarm sets up on you no problem, you can throw in a Maggy somewhere, maybe over one of your CBers, not Heracross. This way Hera and your 3 other CBers have more fun. If you do this watch out for duggy, he'll be a pain.
