Abomasnow
Abomasnow (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Snow Warning

EVs: 168 HP / 252 Atk / 88 Spe

Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SpA)

  • Focus Punch
  • Wood Hammer
  • Ice Shard
  • Earthquake

Focus Punch hits incoming Air Balloon Heatran, hits Chansey hard, plus some steel types like Skarmory.
Wood Hammer OHKOes Politoed and specially defensive Tyranitar, gets rid of any Quagsire or Gastrodon as well. It's also a powerful STAB in general.
Ice Shard is nice because priority is important, and finishes off that pesky Dnite even if it has Extreme speed as long as Abomasnow is at a decent amount of health.
Earthquake takes out Heatran, Magnezone, and max HP Ninetales.

Kyurem-Black
Kyurem-Black @ Life Orb

Trait: Teravolt

EVs: 152 Atk / 208 SpA / 148 Spe

Hasty Nature (+Spe, -Def)

  • Blizzard
  • Outrage
  • Hidden Power Fire
  • Roost

Blizzard hits Dragonite, Gliscor, Breloom, and pretty much anything if I want to attack instead of Outrage or just some extra damage before Outrage so Kyurem can KO it.
Outrage is extremely powerful, and 2HKOes 252/252+ Eviolite Chansey which should tell you something of how powerful Kyurem Black is.
Hidden Power Fire takes out Forretress and Ferrothorn, but I'm considering maybe using Earth Power to get past Heatran, but then again, other team members should be able to take care of that pretty well.
Also Hidden Power Fire OHKOes Forretress through Sturdy because of Teravolt, so that's really nice.
Roost is actually nice, because it heals Kyurem from SR, Spikes plus attacks and crap.
The speed EVs are to outspeed max speed Gyarados with a speed bosting nature and anything below, like adamant Lucario and jolly max speed Dragonite.

Magnezone
Magnezone @ Choice Specs

Trait: Magnet Pull

EVs: 148 HP / 252 SpA / 108 Spe

Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk)

  • Volt Switch
  • Hidden Power Fire
  • Thunderbolt
  • Flash Cannon

My favorite Magnezone: Choice specs.
Helps damaging the opponents powerful attacks. Volt Switch gives me switch advantage as well as doing nice damage.
Hidden Power Fire OHKOes Ferrothorn.
Thunderbolt is for when I want to stay in, or want more powerful attack.
Flash Cannon hits Tyranitar and Latios.
Speed EVs to outspeed Skarmory, SpA is maximzed for maximum damage output, and the HP EVs for extra bulk of course.

Starmie
Starmie @ Leftovers

Trait: Natural Cure

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)

  • Hydro Pump
  • Thunderbolt
  • Rapid Spin
  • Recover

Starmie is a reliable spinner with some nice resistances.
Hydro Pump is good STAB, Thunderbolt hits most water types, Rapid Spin gets rid of hazards, which are annoying for the team.
Starmie is also pretty good at beating spinblockers.
Recover helps after switching to a politoed scald etc.

Terrakion
Terrakion @ Choice Scarf

Trait: Justified

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

Jolly Nature (+Spe, -SpA)

  • Close Combat
  • Stone Edge
  • X-Scissor
  • Earthquake

Terrakion is a nice scarfer.
Close Combat and Stone edge are both nice STABs, and work well with each other.
X-Scissor helps against psychics such as Celebi and Reuniclus.
Earthquake hits Jirachi harder.

Chandelure
Chandelure (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Flash Fire

EVs: 252 SAtk / SpD / 252 Spe

Modest Nature (+SpA, -Atk)

  • Shadow Ball
  • Fire Blast
  • Substitute
  • Pain Split

Shadow Ball is STAB, and is powerful with modest max SpA.
Fire Blast is even stronger, and compliments Shadow ball nicely taking out steel types and hitting Dark types.
Substitute helps draining more HP from the target when pain splitting, and is a form of protection.
Pain split is healing, and damages in the process.

I am thinking of adding in Bronzong or Deoxys Defense because of Scarfed Terrakion, plus I don't have any hazard layer yet.

SubSalac Terrakion is a pretty big threat to your team.
Terrakion in general is. And that's why I'm thinking of adding in Bronzong.
Great team.
Also all pic links are broken :P
Thanks!
But do the pics not work for anyone? I thought that was me.
yes, the pics are broken :P but I just don't like focus punch without nothing to help it (something like substitute, paralyz...)
And go with Timid (+Spd -Atk) nature in Chandelure. May help you because to use SubSplit more safely is good have a high speed. Try also give to Chandelure Flamethrower over Fire Blast because when the oponent's HP is low (you will lower a good amount of HP using SubSplit) you may dislike so much miss no?
Focus Punch is meant to be used when I predict a switch, or for example when a Chansey is in and probably will SR or wish or something.
And what, do you want me to use Sub on a banded Aboma?
Timid on Chandelure is a decent suggestion, but are you aware that Fire Blast does not have the same accuracy as Thunder and Blizzard? Fire Blast has 85 accuracy, and doesn't miss much.
