    -Beat Up
    -Ice Shard
    -Brick Break

    this guy has done such a great job as lead. Beat Up is so underused that its a great surprise to others and they dont see it coming. its 6 hits and if it still isnt dead ice shard to finish it.

    Ability:thick fat
    EVs:252 attack 252 special defense
    Nature:Careful
    -Whirlwind
    -Curse
    -Body Slam
    -Superpower
    im actually really surprised how effective this pokemon is being able to whirlwind threats curse to raise defense it is one of the staples of my team and will change very little. special wall/phy tank

    Weezing@black sludge
    Ability:levitate
    EVs:252 hp 252 def
    Nature:Bold
    -Will-O-Wisp
    -Haze
    -Thunderbolt
    -Sludgebomb
    this guy is such a beast tanking any physical attack and saving my arse like tons of times. he poisons,paralyzes,burns, and hazes he does it all. my physical wall and hazer

    Gengar@focus sash
    Ability:levitate
    EVs:252 sp atk 252 spd
    Nature:Modest
    -Shadow Ball
    -Giga Drain
    -Thunderbolt
    -Sludge bomb
    well hes been helpful but not as helpful as i want. just a sp sweeper thats taken down his fair share of pokemon.

    Lucario@life orb
    Ability:inner focus
    EVs:252 atk 252 spd
    Nature:Jolly
    -Swords Dance
    -Close Combat
    -Bullet Punch
    -Earthquake
    standard phy sweeper lucario does his job i guess

    Volcarona@leftovers
    Ability:flame body
    EVs:252 sp atk 252 spd
    Nature:Timid
    -Fiery Dance
    -Psychic
    -Quiver Dance
    -Bug Buzz
    my second sp sweeper for type coverage been pretty good

    the reason all my descriptions are so short is because most of these pokemon dont fit well and need to be replaced or changed.
    i just need help finding a
    PHYSICAL SWEEPER(maybe infernape?)
    change gengar's set
    and a last pokemon(healer/mixed wall/staller preferably)

    Like Delko said, please increase your description. Even though you are going to change your team eventually, you must tell us in great detail as to why or what you want your Pokemon to do for your team. Also please fix your grammar. It looks very sloppy and unprofessional. If you already knew that your team had many flaws, then why would you post it on rate my team? Anyways I'll go ahead and rate your team:

    Weavile: Beat up, although unpredictable, doesn't really matter in the long run. Leads are meant to do as much damage as possible to the opponent before kicking the can. Night Slash is the better option for a powerful STAB, and high crit percentage. Ice Shard is risky, but Weavile can out speed most Suicide leads except maybe Aerodactyl, but then again they most likely carry Focus Sash's. Ice Punch is better in the long run. Shadow Claw......meh I prefer Fake Out or Taunt.

    Gengar: A special sweeper, but can't pull off one for long due to many will out speed him and OHKO. Gengar is a good Substitute Sweeper.

    Weezing: You already have a poison type, and it also knows Sludge Bomb. There are many tanks out there better than Weezing that can also inflict many status problems.

    Okay I'm going to just stop and say you need some tuning up to do before I can finish the rate. Your team has many flaws that need to be fixed. Your team seems to be based upon sweeping and tanking. Weavile is good, and Snorlax has potential. You need a better team fit for a wide vareity of rolls. My team consists of:

    Lead, Mixed Attacker, Supporting Tank, Rapid Spinner, Special Sweeper, and Bulky Physcial Sweeper.

    I have two sweepers, one physical and one special. Some of them have a status inflicter of some sort also. That's all you need for your basic OU team. You don't need more than one unless you have a grand setup such as a baton passer or rain dance with swift swim.

    Hope this helps, and I promise to finish the rating when you are satisfied with your team.
