Gen 3 Rate My Team

#1
Rate my team please. They're all pretty standard, so I'm not really asking for a huge amount of moveset advice. However, if theres something I should change, please tell me. EV advice would be great too. However, I'm really looking for comments/suggestions on the team itself. Glaring weaknesses that i've overlooked, who should be replaced and by whom, ect.

Gengar (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 216 Atk / 176 Spd / 116 SAtk
Naughty Nature (+Atk, -SDef)
- Focus Punch
- Ice Punch
- Substitute

Use a Mild or Hasty nature. So much Attack isn't needed; 200-220 are good numbers, depending on your personal preferences.

Aerodactyl (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Rock Head
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Double-Edge
- Earthquake
- Hidden Power [Flying]

Are you sure you don't want Jolly?

Weezing (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 255 HP / 55 Atk / 200 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Explosion
- Fire Blast
- Haze
- Sludge Bomb

Relaxed nature, and those 3 wasted EVs in HP could go in Attack or Defense.

Breloom (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Effect Spore
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Focus Punch
- Leech Seed
- Spore
- Substitute

I'd like to see some Speed on this thing.

Jirachi @ Leftovers
Trait: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 HP / 124 Def / 100 SAtk / 32 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Thunder
- Wish

No Special Attack EVs are needed. Put them in the defenses.

Snorlax (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 160 HP / 128 Atk / 44 Def / 176 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Curse
- Earthquake
- Rest
- Shadow Ball

Return/Double-Edge/Body Slam is pretty much necessary over Earthquake or Shadow Ball. I'd get rid of Shadow Ball, as Jirachi is already as good a Gengar counter as you can hope to get.
You have no true counter to Salamence or Flygon; use a bulky water over Breloom or Jirachi or something. Swampert also gives you a hell of a time, especially if Breloom has already Spored something else. A bulky water other than Swampert will beat Perts as well.

K, I'll just add on to what GS said:

IMO, Gar shouldn't lead, as he has trouble with the more common starters (Zappy, Tar, etc) Lead with Aero.

You should give Weezing Pain Split and WoW over Explosion and FB/SB, since an attacking Hazer Weezing doesn't really do much.

Personally, I would go with HP Rock/Ghost over LS on Breloom, but that's just me. Also, either max HP or Spd along with Atk.

You have a bit of a CBtar problem (your only somewhat reliable counter is Jira), so put Pert over Breloom or something. Gyarados also has a potential of sweeping, and Aero isn't gonna hold him off forever, so I'd put Zappy there somewhere.

pretty poor lead considering you've got aerodactyl on the team.

pretty eh set these days. what with all blissey using ice beam.
use sludge bomb or shadow ball/fpunch/ice/thunder if you want a more mixed set.

but I suggest using a Full Special Set.

Aerodactyl (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Rock Head

lead, and don't use jolly like great sage suggested ._.

Weezing (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 255 HP / 55 Atk / 200 Def
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Explosion
- Fire Blast

snap your EV's.
Relaxed Nature, and drop all the Atk into SDef.

Pain Split over Explosion.

Breloom (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Effect Spore
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SDef
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Focus Punch
- Leech Seed
- Spore

Max HP / 208 Sped / Rest in Def.
Impish.

Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

~400 HP / ~297 Def / ~240 Spd / Rest in SDef.
Reflect is so much more useful than thunder.

Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 160 HP / 128 Atk / 44 Def / 176 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)

More defense on Snorlax I think, really makes a difference after a few curses. The special defense really doesn't need to be that high, it matters only a few percentages.

And yes lots of us hate curselax lol.

Give that Gengar a load of HP too if you want it's Subs to survive Blissey's beems. Relying on hax and for Thunder to actually hit is quite risky.

70% * 48% = 33.6% of para something with Thunder in one turn.

20% with Tbolt. 13.6% is not exactly that big of difference, so you might consider that.

If you want lax to have both EQ and Shadow Ball give it Belly Drum. I tried it for awhile, a bit novelty, but it hits like none other.

I don't know what MythTrainerInfinity is coming from, but Thunder only has a 30% para rate. 0.7 * 0.3 = 0.21, so 21% chance to paralyze with Thunder in one turn. You must've been confusing it with Static Raichu or something. Thunderbolt has a 10% paralysis rate per turn.

Also if you want to combine the merits of Earthquake and Shadow Ball, use a Fire move. It will hit Skarmory as well. You'll have more Tyranitar trouble though, but that's what Breloom is for - who could use Mach Punch by the way, because Reversal Blaziken sweeps your team.

Jirachi ability is Serence Garace,meaning all effects are doubled
30*2*.7=60*.7=42% Para in turn (24% diff)

Alright, so I made some changes in accordance with some suggestions. I'm not sure about my Gengar set though. Also, I'm still not sure what to do about Breloom. The set I had (subseeder/spore/fpunch) was working very well when I set up properly, but I'll test out my new one. Also, I'm not sure where to put in a bulky water. More suggestions please.
