just a few suggestion:

Houndoom: Passho Berry protects against a OHKO from Water Attacks, but Fighting is still an issue. Since Houndoom isn't exactly famous for its amazing bulk, you might as well Sash it since any Supereffective hit with a decent BP is probably a OHKO anyway...

Absol: Choice Band is great, but Sucker Punch and Choice Band is an odd choice (no pun intended) for me. if you Sucker Punch, and then are Choice Locked, a Skarmory or something can set up with impunity unless you switch out. which still lets it get one layer of Spikes or Stealth Rock up.... and I see no Rapid Spin support, so that's bad for this team. I either suggest this set:

Absol @ Razor Claw
Trait: Super Luck
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Spd/ 252 Atk/ 4 Def
- Sucker Punch
- Psycho Cut
- Superpower/Megahorn
- Substitute

or using Weavile since it has more reliable Priority moves, and Pressure helps sap low PP moves like Focus Blast that threaten this team. if you choose this route use:

Weavile @ Focus Sash
Trait: Pressure
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 SDef
- Ice Punch
- Pursuit/Night Slash
- Low Kick/Brick Break
- Ice Shard

this set is the one I use personally...it works.
