    My First Suggestion is your Politoed.
    As you are running a bulky set up I would lose your Protect and go for Perish Song. Protect will not help you as much as you would think and since your not Running Focus Blast A Ferrothorn would easily force you to switch out.

    Volcorona? Even though they say to run it in the rain is good it is still bad. I would switch it out for something else.

    Tornadus- I would go with a Tornadus-T instead Regenerator/Life Orb will help you destroy people with Hurricane and U-Turn out to gain health back and such.

    Scizor should have Super Power over Roost? You are running Choice Band so roost is pointless.

    Salamence looks good I would go Lum Berry for sure.

    Your Latios Set Up is a bit weird? You are running 4 SAtk and 252 HP the speed is fine.
    You should switch out for 252 Spc Attack over speed especially if your going Modest? Then Devote your other four to SpecD.

    Latios@ChoiceSpecs
    Timid
    252Speed/252SAtk/4SpcD
    Draco Meteor
    Trick
    Surf/Thunder
    Psyshock.
    This is a good set up because one you outspeed most dragons that are not scarfed. Choice Specs makes up for the Special attack of modest and you have dracometeor.
    Trick lets you render walls useless such as Blissey Ferrothron Forretress. Exc
    Thunder or Surf because both Powerful in rain and Psyshock for Special Walls such as Blissey.


    I hope my suggestions help.
